Hot stuff! Helen Mirren lands "best body" title

Hot dame!

She may be 66 years old, but Dame Helen Mirren has smoked the competition in a new best body poll from British gym chain L.A. Fitness, the Daily Express reports.

After turning heads in her bombshell red bikini three years ago, the Oscar-winning actress commanded 17 percent of the vote to win Best Body of the Year, beating out 48-year-old runner-up Elle "The Body" Macpherson.

"Helen ­Mirren’s victory in our Best Body poll illustrates how, when it comes to body maintenance and well-being, age really is nothing but a number," L.A. Fitness marketing director Tony Orme said of the poll, which surveyed 2,000 men and women.

"It's great to see the public celebrating bodies of all shapes and sizes, and proving that you really can look fabulous over 40 and 50," he added.

Of course, the youngsters weren't completely overlooked. Thirty-one-year-old British actress Kelly Brook—who took the top spot in a Best Bikini Body poll by Gillette Venus, the Daily Mail reports—came in third, followed by Jennifer Lopez, singer Cheryl Cole, and TV hosts Myleene Klass and Holly Willoughby.

Meanwhile, Pippa Middleton's much-admired bottom helped her snag eighth place, while Kate Winslet—who recently commented that she didn't have "a model's body"—and Nicole Scherzinger rounded out the top 10.

And because you simply can't have a Best Body poll and not include David Beckham, the sexy soccer star topped the men's list with 21 percent of the vote. Daniel Craig, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and British singer Peter Andre also made the top five ... and then things got interesting.

Proving that Mirren's not the only "old-timer" who can rock a red swimsuit, 59-year-old David Hasselhoff scored sixth place, beating out tennis star/Emporio Armani Underwear model Rafael Nadal, Ryan Reynolds, Robbie Williams, and (believe it) Simon Cowell.
