Pretending to be a sexy undead heartthrob vampire must be draining. You come home from a long day of posing shirtless with glitter on your skin, and all you want to do is snuggle with your co-star live-in girlfriend. Unfortunately, you find out through the tabloids that she’s been hooking up with an older man while working on a separate film.
If Robert Pattinson’s life sounds rough, don’t worry — it’s about to get a lot better. According to Zap2It, Glamour Magazine has awarded the Twilight star the title of World’s Sexiest Man. It’s a good thing too, because as a newly jilted lover who plays the lead’s romantic interest in the most popular teen movie in recent memory, he has a tough time meeting women.
Pattinson also occupied the top spot on this list last year, but the award didn’t mean as much then because he was happily cohabitating with Kristen Stewart and therefore didn’t have time to use this title to his advantage. He’ll surely be sending condolence bouquets to the fellows he beat to retain his position on this list, some of whom include Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), Benedit Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Michael Fassbender (of Inglorious Basterds, among other things).
