A waxwork of Brad Pitt at Madame Tussauds in Amsterdam will be the museum's first topless attraction.

According to BBC Online the waxwork will reveal the actor's naked torso.

Fans standing close to the waxwork will hear the Troy star's heart "beat", Madame Tussauds announced.

The waxwork will stand next to models of actress-singers Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Lopez, in what will be called an "X-appeal" section of the museum.

Pitt was recently voted the sexiest man in the world in a poll by British magazine Company.

He jumped from number three to number one in the poll, with his Troy co-star Orlando Bloom in second place.
