London, Aug 19, “Twilight” hunk Robert Pattinson has been named the world’s sexiest man.
Pattinson has topped Glamour’s 50 Sexiest Men poll for the second year running, after fighting off stiff competition from other actors starring in vampire-based productions, reports gossipblender.com.
The top five were in fact dominated by “Twilight” actors, with 18-year-old Taylor Lautner who plays Jacob Black, the werewolf love rival to Pattinson’s character Edward Cullen in the hit film franchise, in second place, Xavier Samuel and Kellan Lutz placed fourth and fifth respectively.
The hunky trio were rivalled by “The Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder, who was voted third in the survey.
“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,” said Glamour’s acting editor Charlotte Duck.
The list was compiled from over 50,000 votes by readers of Glamour.com.
