The number of women on the IMDb’s top 10 stars of the year has gone from three to five in the past twelve months.
In 2010 just three women made it to the list of most viewed celebrity profiles.
Thanks to Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, as well as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr and Gerard Butler leaving the list – the mix has evened itself out.
Johnny Depp has dropped down to third place for the first time, he is usually a permanent fixture at the top of the list.
IMDb managing editor Keith Simanton told Mashable: “[Portman] won a Best Actress Oscar for Black Swan, was in the news welcoming a son into the world in June, and appeared in three films.”
Personally I think the reason the top two are Portman and Kunis, aside from both their obviously good acting skills – is THAT scene in Black Swan – you know the one I mean.
Mashable have reported that the ranking system has also changed, it now takes into account all mobile app page views as well as website views.
