Britney Spears has been branded 'Bitchney Sneers' by an American magazine because she never signs autographs for fans.
The sexy star topped a poll in Autograph Collector which revealed whether celebrities were "cool or cruel" when it came to giving autographs.
Publisher Steve Cyrkin said: "While we're the first to defend any celebrity's right not to sign, how do you defend rude, crude and downright unattractive behaviour?
"As one collector told us, 'Britney has done all she can to earn her nickname, Bitchney Sneers.'"
Other stars on the list include Britney's former boyfriend, Justin Timberlake and his fiancée Cameron Diaz, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and former couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.
Cyrkin explained: "They're not nasty, but they pretty much ignore fans requesting autographs."
Johnny Depp beat Matt Damon and Tom Cruise into second and third place respectively, to win the best celebrity signer title.
Cyrkin added: "Johnny Depp never says 'No' to autograph seekers.
"One collector told us, 'He'll sign for everyone, and it doesn't matter how many things you ask him to sign.'"
