Young British want Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's looks
UPI News Service, 08/31/2005
More than a quarter of British women say they want to look like U.S. actress Jennifer Aniston while British men chose her ex, Brad Pitt.
In the TV Channel Five poll asking 16- to 30-year-olds who they most wanted to look like, Sienna Miller came in second among the women, followed by Keira Knightley and Victoria Beckham, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
Jude Law came in second among the guys, followed by David Beckham, Robbie Williams, Rio Ferdinand and Calum Best.
The poll was taken for the show "Don't Get Me Started!" which is featuring an episode about young people's obsession with looking like celebs, the Mail said.
"British kids used to strive to be different, outrageous and a little bit offensive,""Don't Get Me Started!" host Sam Delane said. "Now they aspire to emulate bland American actors whose defining stylistic features are shiny hair and nice, white teeth.
"The eccentricity and imagination that once made Britain the global capital of youth culture has been replaced by mindless celebrity obsession," he said.
