The world's women are far keener on chocolate than they are on movie hunk BRAD PITT.
A new study collected together a group of women and monitored their heartbeat while they watched pictures of Pitt flash up on a TV screen followed by images of chocolate deserts.
The 38-year-old hunk caused flutters of only 105 beats per minute, while a fattening raspberry creme brulee increased the average heart rate to 142.
A chocolate truffle got rates of 135 while hunk RUSSELL CROWE could only get the heart up to 99 but LEONARDO DiCAPRIO got a measly flutter of 92. The average heartbeat is 70 beats per minute.
