Hollywood legend James Dean was voted the coolest icon of all time by a poll conducted by Glenfiddich Whisky, according to The Sun.
'The Rebel Without a Cause' star who was famous for his brooding looks was just 24 when he was killed in 1955 in a head-on crash while driving his Porsche.
The King of rock and roll Elvis Presley was runner-up in the icon poll of 2,000 men while Steve McQueen came in third.
"The top three men have all been dead for years, which shows how young men can still be inspired by icons that weren't even around in their lifetime," a spokesman for Glenfiddich was quoted as saying.The top five coolest icons of all times are:
1. James Dean
2. Elvis Presley
3. Steve McQueen
4. Muhammad Ali
