"Godfather star Al Pacino has been named the greatest film star of all time, in a poll of British movie fans for Channel 4. The Italian-American actor was picked just ahead of his contemporary Robert De Niro. The highest placed British star in the top 100 list was Anthony Hopkins at number seven, ahead of eighth placed Sean Connery. More than 25,000 votes were cast in the Channel 4 poll, with Scottish star Ewan McGregor the youngest actor in the top 10 at the age of 32. No female stars made the top 10, with Breakfast at Tiffanys star Audrey Hepburn at number thirteen. Sigourney Weaver, best known for her roles in the Alien movies, at number 20 is the second-highest placed woman in the poll." BBC News. Channel 4's Top 20 movie stars of all time. 1. Al Pacino 2.

Sigourney Weaver I have no problem with Pacino at no.1, he's always been a favorite of mine, De Niro too. Nice to see Sigourney Weaver rated so highly, biggest omission in my opinion is the great Gene Hackman, who should have been in the top 10.
