The latest Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson,has been named the sexiest man in the world for the second year in a row,despite facing stiff competition from his Twilight co-stars.
The 24-year-old British actor has yet again topped Glamour online 50 Sexiest Men poll. The top five was dominated by Twilight actors,with 18-year-old Taylor Lautner – who plays werewolf Jacob Black in the hit film franchise – in second place,and Xavier Samuel and Kellan Lutz placed fourth and fifth respectively.
The trio were rivalled by The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder,who was voted third in the survey.
Glamour acting editor Charlotte Duck said – Women are attracted to vampires because of the element of danger that comes with them. They are the ultimate bad boys – and women want to tame the beasts.
The list,which was compiled from over 50,000 votes by readers of the fashion website,had many renowned names being placed further down the list than in previous years.
Johnny Depp dropped from second place to sixth,while soccer star David Beckham slipped from fourth down to 21st. George Clooney only reached position 35 on the list,while Leonardo DiCaprio,Keanu Reeves and Jude Law,who have scored highly in the survey in recent years,did not even feature.
