Unsurprisingly Macpherson, dubbed The Body for her svelte figure, was also deemed the most desirable mother by men who took part in the survey.
She has two sons with her former long-term boyfriend, French millionaire Arki Busson, Arpad Flynn, 13, and Aurelius Cy, eight.
Of the fact that 20 paparazzi are regularly outside the school, which the children of Claudia Schiffer and Stella McCartney also attend, she said: 'The kids get really, really embarrassed. But it is part and parcel of this job and I try to make the most of it.'
The survey was carried out by Paramount Home Entertainment to tie in with the DVD launch of the Australian classic comedy The Castle, first released in 1997.
