Johnny Depp confirmed as America’s most popular actor


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s official: Johnny Depp is America’s most popular movie star.

I know. Duh. Like you really need a poll to tell you that, right? But the Harris Poll, which surveyed 2,237 adults in the U.S. between Dec. 5 and 12, confirmed that Depp’s turns in “Rango” and the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie helped propel him to the top of the popularity charts. It was his second consecutive year earning the distinction.

Tied for number two are Denzel Washington, who was in the second spot last year, and Clint Eastwood who was number 9 on the list last year, according to results.

Rounding out the top five favorite actors is Tom Hanks in the number 4 spot, up from a tie for number 6 last year; and at number 5 the only actor to have been on this list since it began in 1994, the Duke himself, John Wayne down from the number 3 spot last year.

After being part of a three-way tie for number 6 last year, George Clooney now holds that position by himself. Up from number 10 to number 7 is Sandra Bullock who is the only woman in the top ten and dropping from number 4 to number 8 is Harrison Ford. There are two new additions to the list this year. At number 9, returning to the top ten after a two year absence is Will Smith and debuting at number 10 is funny man Adam Sandler.
