and Cameron Diaz might want to think twice before reuniting for another film.

The stars of the box office disappointment Knight and Day are now being reminded of another title from their past.

David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive ranked second in the poll while Donnie Darko, directed by Richard Kelly, placed third.

Most Desirable Woman Emmanuelle Chriqui

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television,

Emmanuelle ChriquiThe year has barely even started, but Canadian actress Emmanuelle Chriqui has already been named the Most Desirable Woman of 2010.

The beauty topped a poll of men, conducted by website AskMen.com, who were asked to name the lady they would most like to have as a girlfriend or wife. “Hearing what the vote is made of is the biggest compliment of all because it’s about being a well-rounded woman. That’s really empowering and is just a massive compliment to me,” last year’s #12 said.

Explaining Chriqui’s appeal to men, James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com, said: “It’s refreshing to see a respected but relatively low-profile actress like Emmanuelle top the Top 99, while many of the tabloid regulars didn’t even make it. To me, this outcome really reflects what is unique about our annual list: that it is a real indicator of the kind of women that men want, rather than simply those ones that we are continuously exposed to.”
