Bloom, Aniston voted most desired celebs to chat with online

Filed under

Orlando Bloom and Jennifer Aniston are the celebrities American singles would most like to stumble across in an online chat room, according to a recent survey.

The "Lord of the Rings" star and the soon-to-be ex Mrs. Brad Pitt topped a poll of 2,907 singles nationwide by one of the leading internet US dating services,

The company conducted the survey in the wake of the recent revelation by "Catwoman" star Halle Berry that she enjoys using a pseudonym to chat with strangers on online dating sites.

"If you suddenly discovered that the prospect you've spent the past two months meeting in the chat room was really a celeb-in-disguise, who would you want it to be?" the poll asked.

Aniston was the first choice female celebrity with 22.3 percent of the vote, while Bloom led the men's field with 22.6 percent.

"Fantastic Four" star Jessica Alba was second to Aniston with 18.2 percent, just slightly above Berry who was third with 18 percent.

Romantic comedy stalwart John Cusack grabbed 18.7 percent of the vote as the the second most-favoured male celebrity, ahead of "Bourne Identity" star Matt Damon with 16 percent.

Based on over a hundred thousand respondents, StackOverflow’s Developer Survey 2018 presents a more complicated reality. If they were asked to write code for an unethical purpose, 59 percent would say no, but another 37 percent of developers were non-committal about whether they would comply. In another question, only about 5 percent said they definitely not report unethical problems with code. But sounding the alarm is about as far as most people will go.
