Dirty Dancing star Patrick Swayze has been voted more sexy than Brad Pitt and David Beckham, in an online survey conducted on 800 people by Cosmopolitan magazine.
The scene from director Emile Ardolino's 1987 hit - where the bare-chested dance instructor (Swayze) lifts Baby (Jennifer Grey) out of a lake during a dancing lesson has been awarded the "on-screen nearly-naked man moment" in the poll, commissioned to mark the 10th anniversary of the publication's Naked Male Centrefolds.
"It's nearly 20 years since Dirty Dancing hit our screens and its star, Patrick Swayze is still winning the hearts of young women today," the Daily Snack quoted Cosmopolitan Editor Sam Baker, as saying.
"Enduring images like these don't date - they're as fresh and sexy for young women today as they were in the 1980s," he added.
Jesse Metcalfe mowing the lawn with his shirt off in the hit US series Desperate Housewives came in second, while Matthew McConaughey's shirt-swapping scene in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," and the bare-chested Diet Coke man jointly shared the third place.
Robbie Williams in "Take That's saucy Pray" video, Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise, and David Beckham taking his shirt off at the end of a match take fourth, fifth and sixth position.
