Indians figure in the list of 10 most attractive people in the world with Americans topping the chart, a survey has found.
Brazil comes second in the poll of more than 5,000 globe-trotting Britons.
Spain is third while Australia — with its blonde, tanned surfers — was voted into fourth place. Italy is fifth, Sweden sixth and England seventh in the poll.
India — home to Bollywood beauties Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, and heartthrob Salman Khan — is eighth. France follows at nine and Canada finishes off the top 10.
“America has got a lot on offer and boasts of some of the sexiest people on the planet,” a spokeswoman for www.OnePoll.com — which carried out the survey — was quoted by The Daily Telegraph as saying.
“The likes of Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt (all Hollywood actors) help America’s image as a hot bed of good looking people. But with a population of more than 300 million, they do have an unfair advantage.”
“But in fairness, when you think of good looking countries, Sweden, Italy, France and Brazil all spring to mind before us lazy, pale Brits,” the spokeswoman said. “If you’re looking for some fun in the sun, you now know where to head.”
