Trend: Poll Finds Men Want Alba As Girlfriend

More guys want Jessica Alba for their girlfriend than any other woman, according to's top 99 list for 2006. The 24-year-old actress tops the Web site's list ranking female celebrities on their "long-term relationship material." Alba is followed by "Alfie" star Sienna Miller and the ubiquitous Angelina Jolie.

James Bassil, editor-in-chief of, told The Associated Press the list was determined by the rankings of 2.5 million readers and by the site's staff. Readers of the online magazine were asked to vote according to the woman they would most want a relationship with, would consider marrying or thought best-suited to be the mother of their children. Of course, few have ever accused Alba, Miller or Jolie of being short on movie star glamour. "We encouraged readers not to go on looks alone," Bassil said. "I don't believe it's an entirely accurate reflection of what a reader strives for in their long-term relationships, but at the same time, it's not a sheerly surface appreciation." The rest of the top 10, in order, is Brazilian model Adriana Lima (No. 1 last year), "Access Hollywood" correspondent Maria Menounos, Charlize Theron, Jessica Biel, singer Amerie, Natalie Portman and Eva Longoria. Britney Spears a mainstay of such lists in previous years failed to chart. See more of what the big deal is over Jessica here:

AKI COMMENT: Well, Seth forwarded the photos yesterday...but Pete Brown was kind enough to put the research rigor behind it to qualify as worthy of our blog. And yes, this is a shameless attempt at generating Mass Appeal(and easy word search hits)for our blog as we are in the final days of voting for Battle of the Ad Blogs!

Ask yourself, what other "Planner/Theorist" blog would give you "research" like this?
