London: Audrey Hepburn’s pick-up line in her 1963 movie ‘Charade’ has been voted as the best in a survey.
“I don’t bite, you know…unless it’s called for,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Cary Grant in ‘Charade.’
Lauren Bacall was placed second for her pick-up line to Humphrey Bogart in the 1944 film ‘To Have And To Have Not,’ “You don’t have to say anything…Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle don’t you?”
Surprisingly, the third place was won by a cartoon character, Jessica Rabbit, who was voiced by Kathleen Turner in 1988 movie ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’
“You don’t know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do,” Jessica Rabbit said.
Online dating site Badoo.com surveyed over 1,000 female users and asked them to place a selection of seductive female movie lines in order of their preference.
In fourth place was a classic quote from 1942 ‘Casablanca’ with Ingrid Bergman saying, “Was that cannon fire, or is it my heart pounding?”
It was only in the fifth place that a recent quote found any mention, Natalie Portman tells Ashton Kutcher in ‘No Strings Attached,’ “You give me premature ventricular contractions…you make my heart skip a beat.”
Men had their own favourite female line with Bette Davis in the 1932 movie ‘The Cabin In The Cotton’ saying in a heavy Southern drawl, “I’d love to kiss you – but I just washed my hair.”
