    Take a moment and consider your nominee for celebrity "Body of the Year."

    We're guessing 66 year-old Dame Helen Mirren is probably not the first name that popped into your head. And yet, according to a recent poll conducted by the L.A. Fitness gym chain awarded the British actress top honors.

    Mirren scored ahead of supermodel Elle MacPherson, Jennifer Lopez, and fellow Brit Pippa Middleton. The male side was a bit more predictable, with David Beckham, Daniel Craig, and Johnny Depp locking in the top spots.

    The survey was conducted among 2,000 gym members, and Mirren scored 18% of the votes. MacPherson, whose nickname happens to be "The Body," was second with 10%.

    Mirren, who recently co-starred with Russell Brand in a remake of the hit comedy "Arthur," is currently filming a biopic of embattled music producer Phil Spector alongside Al Pacino.
