Kate Winslet and Halle Berry Top Most Desirable Bodies List

J. Graylock/JPI; INF

While there remains no shortage of Hollywood starlets whose stick-thin frames continue to appear in magazines and on the red carpet, it seems now more than ever ordinary women are tiring of the look — and the possible extreme measures it takes to achieve that near-impossible standard. A recent survey, which polled 2,000 women aged 18 and over, found that stars with curvier, healthier figures were more desirable, reports the UK’s Daily Mail. Topping the desirability chart is Kate Winslet, followed by Halle Berry and Beyonce. Also making the list: Megan Fox and Lily Allen, while svelte Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss tie for last place. Could the era of too-too-skinny starlets be coming to an end? Tell us: Who do you think has the best body in Hollywood? Do you feel pressure to live up to stars’ body standards? –Andrea DeSimone

Um, desirable to .. women? That’s another thing entirely. Perhaps different word should be used to convey the real meaning of this story- like admired? Inspiring? As a man I also find them desirable, but in a very different sense..

These are good choices. I think Jennifer Aniston should be on the top of list too. I like Kate Moss, but would bounce Beckham!

There’s a saying “Men like the meat, the bones are for the dogs”. I hope this will become the norm and not the exception. Wouldn’t it be wonderful for young girls to feel ok with their bodies, curves and all. Halle has always been one of the most beautiful women in the world. I think Kate is beautiful as well. That was a cheap shot about the spanx. No one is perfect.

R u kidding Kate is fat? OMG u r y girls are anorexic. She’s a beautiful curvaceous and sensual woman.Shame on u for making girls think broom handle arms and legs is attractive.

Joe,there is no way you are married, and if you are, I feel sorry for your wife! Grow up!

I am not a fan of Kate Winslet’s body, but I agree about Halle Berry. Men, she either has the best trainer in HW or great genes, maybe both. Nahla is one lucky girl if she takes after her mom. Jen Aniston also has a beautiful body but sometimes she looks too skinny, she does have an ass and the best legs in HW though.

Val on

Add Jennifer Aniston to the list of great bods.

Danielle on

Jennifer Aniston!

I’m also on the Jennifer Aniston bandwagon, in fact I’m driving it!

Joe is an idiot – how can you assume we are jealous? With the life I lead and the way I look I have nothing to be jealous of anyone in hollywood. No, I am not bragging, it sounds pretty pathetic bragging on a site where i am known simply as “A”. Grow up jerk, I hope some young woman seduces you and takes you to the cleaner so that you can see that age has nothing to do with it. I say this as a 22 year old woman. The look beautiful, Marilyn Monroe looked better than Twiggy and the same applies today. This is not a beef towards those naturally skinny women, but to those who think that they should have this ideal of being under 100 pounds to be attractive
