Emma Watson and Benedict Cumberbatch top Empire magazine's list of "100 Sexiest Movie Stars," as voted on by 50,000 movie fans.

Right, Emma Watson -- the little magic girl in those movies about the kid with the glasses. I guess she's not 11 anymore.

Watson beat out stars such as Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone and Mila Kunis.

Angelina Jolie finished ninth. Marilyn Monroe came in at No. 41, despite being, you know, dead.

The magazine said Watson was voted for "Combining smarts with beauty ... since leaving Hogwarts she's blossomed into a fine young actress, playing roles from teen thief to music nerd, and even having fun as herself in 'This Is The End.'"

Cumberbatch beat out actors such as Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, Johnny Depp and Daniel Craig.

"It's a great result for British stars, but what's clear is that it's less important to have lots of casual fans and better to have a dedicated hard-core," said James Dyer, editor of EmpireOnline.com, according to E! News. "The Cumberbabes, Hiddlestoners, Twi-hards and Cavilliers all made their opinions heard."
