Luckily, American is only number six.

Last year, the British accent (whatever that is, because we all know people change the way they speak every 10 miles here) was voted the world's sexiest.

But this year, according to the latest study by Renault Clio, it's French that tops the list of sexiest accents and languages.


The survey of 2,000 Brits found that one in five Britons is attracted to the 'language of love,' closely followed by Italian, English, Irish, and Spanish.

Apparently one in seven Brits - so around 15% - admit they add some French to their conversation when they want to be romantic or seductive.

What's more interesting, however, is the fact that most of the sexiest French-speaking celebrities are not actually French.

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie topped the Renault poll, each cited by 26% of those surveyed, with actual French-speaking stars like Thierry Henry and Vanessa Paradis nowhere to be seen.

Halle Berry, Kylie Minogue, Orlando Bloom, and Emma Watson can also be found in the top 10.

Here's the list of the top ten accents the UK finds most attractive:

  1. French
  2. Italian
  3. English
  4. Irish
  5. Spanish
  6. American
  7. Scottish
  8. Welsh
  9. Australian
  10. Russian

What do you think - which accent is the sexiest?
