Johnny Depp


It's not all bad news for Johnny Depp these days.

Amid growing speculation that his relationship with Vanessa Paradis is all but officially kaput, the actor just got a big dose of happy—and some serious bragging rights at the next Hollywood A-list mixer...

See, America still loves its Depp more than any other thespian. The star finished atop this year's Harris Poll, earning the title of America's Favorite Actor after a year in which he starred in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Rango and The Rum Diary (OK, so not everything he touched was gold).

This is the second straight year he's finished in the No. 1 slot in the survey, which rarely matches up with conventional wisdom. (The results are based on 2,237 adults surveyed online between Dec.5 and 12.)

For instance, Denzel Washington and Clint Eastwood neither of whom actually acted in a movie in 2011, tied for runner-up. Tom Hanks came in at No. 4, while the late John Wayne was right behind at No. 5. Wayne, who died in 1979, is the only actor to have remained on the Harris List since it began in 1994.

George Clooney, Sandra Bullock (the only lady on this list), Harrison Ford, Will Smith and Adam Sandler rounded out the top 10.

That means no Ryan Gosling. No Julia Roberts. And no Brangelina, although Angelina Jolie was America's fifth favorite in last year's results.

Anyone else ready to demand a do-over?
