A new poll carried out by CBS News and Vanity Fair went in pursuit of perfection – asking American adults what they thought made the perfect woman.
Here's what America had to say...
Brains over beauty
Being a good mother was deemed the most important quality in a woman, getting 39% of the vote. Brains came second with 33%, a sense of humour got 17% and beauty only 1% (winner).
Men hate Twilight
The male respondents said that if Fatal Attraction was a ladies favourite film – it was a deal breaker (25%) with Twilight coming in a close second (21%). Other popular chick flicks – The Notebook and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days are also a no-no.
Women shouldn't be builders
Ladies should be doctors with 48% of the voters saying that was the profession they felt most comfortable with a women being in. Car mechanic (3%) and contractor (2%) – not so much.
Men hate it when women…
Smoke (34%), get plastic surgery (17%), overeat (11%), gossip (10%), drink (8%), swear (6%) or own cats (8%). Oops.
Some good news
74% don't think it's inevitable women become just like their mothers. Phew.
Men would most like to marry Penny from the Big Bang Theory (but 8% voted for Liz Lemon – high five Liz!) So that means if Henry Cavill doesn't like perfect women - we're in with a shot, no?
The bold & the brave
55% of respondants found bold and experienced women more desirable over sweet and innocent ones (33%).
And there you have it. Now we've all realised we're not perfect, what shall we do for the rest of the day? Lunch?
