Clint Eastwood voted favorite film star

Oprah Winfrey is the top TV personality in Harris poll

America loves Clint Eastwood and Oprah Winfrey best.

In an annual poll from Harris Interactive, Eastwood was the favorite movie star and Winfrey was the top TV personality.

The No. 2 spot on the TV list went to Glenn Beck, and the choice is already the source of some online angst. The Huffington Post, for example, says that Beck's Fox News buddy Bill O'Reilly is upset at being outranked: O'Reilly is at No. 10.

Jay Leno is third on the TV list, but the poll of 2,276 adults was conducted from Dec. 7-14, so it doesn't reflect whether opinions have changed -- for better or worse -- since Leno's dramatic retaking of the "Tonight Show" from Conan O'Brien. It's interesting to note, though, that Leno was first in last year's poll.

O'Brien didn't crack the Top 10, though David Letterman is ranked No. 9.

Ellen DeGeneres was fourth, while her new "American Idol" partner Simon Cowell was absent from the list.

Filling out the Top 10 were Hugh Laurie, Charlie Sheen and Mark Harmon.

Dropping off the list year over year were Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert.

As for movie stars, Eastwood replaced Denzel Washington, who fell to third, while Johnny Depp claimed the No. 2 spot.

As has been the case every year since Harris began its poll, the only dead star in the Top 10 was John Wayne, who came it at No. 7 this time around.

Wayne, in fact, is the only actor -- living or dead -- to appear on the list every year since its inception in 1994.

Filling out the list of the Top 10 movie stars are Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Morgan Freeman and Julia Roberts.

Falling out of the Top 10 were Will Smith, Harrison Ford and Angelina Jolie.

Harris released its movie list Tuesday and TV list a day earlier.
