And the Oscar for best pickup line in a movie goes to – Audrey Hepburn in the romantic thriller, “Charade.” That’s according to the results from women polled by the U.K.-based dating site Badoo.com and released on Wednesday before the Academy Awards on Sunday.
“I don’t bite you know … unless it’s called for,” Hepburn told Cary Grant in the 1963 release, and, 50 years later, women still chose it first.
Men, however, had different ideas. They favored this Bette Davis line from the 1932 movie, “The Cabin in the Cotton,” – “I’d love to kiss you, but I just washed my hair.”
Men preferred humor to suggestiveness, according to Badoo, but in some extreme outlier cases both.
