Film star Pitt's topless waxwork

Brad Pitt's waxwork will include a "beating" heart
A waxwork of film star Brad Pitt at Madame Tussauds in Amsterdam will be the museum's first topless attraction.

The waxwork, which goes on display in the Dutch museum on Wednesday, will reveal the actor's naked torso.

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

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.

The actor recently finished filming Ocean's Twelve, the sequel to the hit Steven Soderbergh film Ocean's Eleven.

The film is due out in the US and UK in December.
