X-Men 2 star Halle Berry has gone down a storm with women who have voted her the world’s top beauty.

The actress – who landed an Oscar last year for Monster’s Ball – heads a poll among readers of Eve magazine to find the most beautiful woman in the world.

Nearly a third (31%) of readers voted for Berry, with Catherine Zeta Jones runner up on 18%.

Berry, 36, has seen her latest X-Men movie – for which she reprises her role as mutant Storm – taking more than €141m around the world during its opening weekend.

Jennifer Lopez finishes fourth, taking just 9% of votes, behind Duran Duran star Simon Le Bon’s model wife Yasmin who was third with 15%.

The poll was carried out to tie in with Eve’s search for a model aged 30-plus to become the face of the magazine.

Entry forms are in the new edition of the magazine out today.

Yasmin Le Bon, 38, said: “Women in their thirties are more beautiful, confident and stylish that ever before.”

Eve editor Jane Bruton said: “We are delighted to be launching our Face of Eve 2003 search in celebration of women in their 30s. Women say they love being 30 because they have more self-confidence, more money and strong relationships.”

Top five:

1. Halle Berry (36)

2. Catherine Zeta Jones (33)

3. Yasmin Le Bon (38)

4. Jennifer Lopez (32)

5. Catherine Deneuve (59).
