Played by New Zealand-born actor Russell Crowe, he topped the survey for film magazine Empire.

One reader commented: 'Maximus is everything a woman could want - strong, noble, intelligent, brave, loyal, devoted to his family and just about sexy enough to light any woman's fire.'

Top female character was Princess Leia in Return Of The Jedi, in which actress Carrie Fisher wears a skimpy gold bikini top.  She finished just ahead of Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman in Batman Returns, which sees her cavorting in a rubber catsuit.

The Star Wars saga has another entry at number seven for Qui-Gon Jinn, the bearded Liam Neeson.

Older films were represented in the top ten by Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) from Breakfast At Tiffany's and Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe) in Some Like It Hot.
