Who would you most like to have for Christmas dinner? For most of the UK it’s the man behind Captain Jack Sparrow we would want wishing us a Yo-h0-happy Christmas.
Johnny Depp, George Clooney and Tom Hanks, have been voted the top three Hollywood stars who the nation would most happily invite over for Christmas, according to a poll carried out by the Sky Movies HD Christmas Channel.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star scooped the top spot with an impressive 7.6% of the votes. Depp was closely followed by George Clooney, who received 5.2%, and hot on his heels came Tom Hanks who reached third place with a respectable 4.9%.
The zombie fighting comedian, Simon Pegg, was ranked seventh, followed by heart-throb Hugh Grant who came in at eighth place. Cameron Diaz and Jim Carey, who starred together in the 90s family film The Mask, filled in the last two spots in the nation’s fantasy Christmas celebrity guest list.
The Christmas Channel asked 1,000 UK people to vote as part of Sky’s upcoming festive broadcasts, where film fanatics will be sharing their living rooms with the stars.
According to Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies, festive films have become as much a tradition as turkey and tinsel:
“The launch of our festive season of daily box sets was the perfect reason to find out who audiences really want to share their Christmas with this year. Depp was the clear winner for UK film fans. He is this year’s ultimate Christmas cracker!”
