Adjust font size:
Denzel Washington, the star of American Gangster and The Great Debaters, for the second consecutive year topped the list as America's favorite movie star in a new survey.

The Academy-award winner was also the first choice of Democrats questioned in the annual Harris Poll, while Tom Hanks, the Republicans' favorite actor, captured the No. 2 spot for the second straight year. He is currently in theaters playing a hawkish Democrat in Charlie Wilson's War.

Johnny Depp, the star of Sweeney Todd and the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, rose four places to take the third position, followed by Julia Roberts, the highest ranked actress on the list.

Will Smith -- star of I Am Legend -- rounded out the top five.

John Wayne, the only deceased star on this year's list, came in sixth place. Wayne is the only actor to rank in the poll's top 10 every year since its inception in 1994.

Matt Damon and former James Bond star Sean Connery tied for seventh place, while Sandra Bullock, the only other woman to make the top 10, took the ninth spot and Bruce Willis of Die Hard fame came in 10th.
