Carmen Electra, Kate Upton or any number of Playboy centerfolds are who you generally think of when imagining whose picture is hanging on the walls of horny college guys across the country. But the would-be King of England wasn’t like the other boys. There were no buxom babes of the ‘60s on Charles III’s walls at Cambridge, but rather one iconic star of the stage and screen: Barbra Streisand.

But seriously, there’s an entire roster of bald men that your mother probably has the hots for, and I can guarantee you that William isn’t anywhere near it. To reach its conclusion, the study looked at how many times names were searched alongside the terms “shirtless” or “naked,” and considered other factors like height, net worth and scalp shine. Stanley Tucci, you will be avenged.
