Kate Winslet and Halle Berry Top Most Desirable Bodies List

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

Joe, if you are reading this…..you are an idiot. and yes, this comment is coming from a 20 year old, size 2 “chick”…

I actually Halle and Kate are gorgeous women and deserve to be on this list….but where is Jennifer Anniston’s name?

Their bodies are quite healthy-looking, which is good news. The problem is that we’re applauding the end result rather than the process. We shouldn’t ‘encourage’ curvier women any more than we should ‘encourage’ very skinny women. As long as you’re exercising and eating well, then you should be ‘encouraged’ and accept whatever size that means for you.

I would choose Rihanna, she’s not skinny, well toned and her body is perfect, flawless.

althought I don’t like Jennifer Aniston or Scarlet Johansen – I agree that they both have great figures and should be on the list.

i would also add Jennifer Garner (did you see her in ALIAS?), Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Blake Lively, and Brooke Burke to the list.

and i do disagree with some of the negative comments that have been made, but beauty is to the eye of the beholder and we should respect and keep these boards clean. :)

Jennifer Aniston shouldn’t be included because she is a smoker, along with Kate Moss. All smokers should never be allowed as role models, even for their bodies. These smokers use their smokes as a means to keep weight off. Kate Winslet has a real attainable body that should be the most desirable by men and women. I think Kate Beckinsale has a great athletic body without looking sick. Just my opinion, but neither are smokers.

ok i love kate winslet but what is so desireable about her body. You can see it in almost all of her movies she just shows it off. I think their are better canidates.

They are both gorgeous. Kate Winslet is a class act, talented and stunning in a very womanly way. Nothing about her reminds me of a pre-pubescent girl – which is utterly refreshing. Love her hips in that dress! Nice to see she topped the list!

I like Jennifer Aniston and although she is a little too slender these days for me to think she should be on the list I will say that she has a well proportioned body, incredible legs, and is lean and muscular – not just skinny and that is a good thing. Also, I thought she quite smoking. I think Scarlett J also has a good body and is a good choice. Unlike Joe, who stated women who agree with the list are just afraid of the competition from younger women – that is ridiculous. Like I said, Scarlett J. would have been a good choice and she is young. And for the record, Halle and Kate have been idolized for their bodies even in their twenties. They look like real women and most guys I know would prefer this body type. The fact is that most women on this post probably like curves just like I do. Even when I was a teenager I admired the hourglass Monroe figure.

Sandra Bullock!
