Julia Roberts’ ‘Pretty Woman’ sequence voted best movie sceneJune 10th, 2009 - 12:45 am ICT by IANS
London, June 9 (IANS) A scene from Hollywood actress Julia Roberts’ classic film “Pretty Woman” has been voted Britain’s favourite movie moment of all time.
The 1990 picture won Roberts a Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination and now a sequence from the movie has seen off competition from other films to top the survey by the Turner Classic Movies Channel, reports contactmusic.com.
Movie fans voted Roberts into first place for the moment her prostitute character, Vivienne, confronts a shop assistant in a luxury store, after the woman previously refused to serve her.
In second place was Meg Ryan in 1989s “When Harry Met Sally”, which saw the actress fake an orgasm in the middle of a busy New York deli.
Jack Nicholson chopping down a door with an axe and screaming “Here’s Johnny!” in 1980s “The Shining” came in third, while Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous “I’ll be back” line in “The Terminator” was polled at number four.
