Editors at leading movie news and ticket website Fandango.com asked film fans to select the stars that turn them on in the most-anticipated releases of 2012 and the foursome came top of the separate male and female hot lists.
Theron, who will terrify as the evil queen in "Snow White & The Huntsman," has topped the women's list of sexiest female stars, beating Gravity's Sandra Bullock and Kate Beckinsale, the star of 2012 movies "Total Recall," "Underworld 4" and "Contraband," while the British actress tops the men's list, ahead of The Avengers' Scarlett Johansson.
Female poll respondents picked Johnny Depp as the sexiest guy, ahead of George Clooney, while the men gave Robert Downey, Jr. the edge over Clooney.
Also looking ahead, female moviegoers named the "Twilight finale, Breaking Dawn - Part 2," and "The Hunger Games" the most anticipated films of 2012, while men picked "The Hobbit" ahead of Marvel's "The Avengers" and "The Dark Knight" sequel.
Thousands of film fans responded to the survey, which was first posted on Fandango.com Dec. 1, 2011.
The Fandango Hot List is focused on next year's films, and performers whose upcoming movies do not have a 2012 release date were not included.
