2012-10-01 19:11
London - Robert Pattinson has been named the sexiest man in the world.

The Twilight actor has topped Glamour magazine's 50 Sexiest Men of 2012 poll beating a host of famous hunks to take the British magazine's title for the fourth year in a row.

The 26-year-old star beat Thor star Tom Hiddleston and Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp into second and third place respectively.

The top five was rounded off by Michael Fassbender and Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch.

Other hunks to make the top 10 included Robert Downey Jr, Robert's Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner and Henry Cavill - who will be seen next year playing Superman in Man of Steel.

Over 40 000 people voted in this year's poll and notable entries in the top 20 include Alexander Skarsgard at No 14, Batman actor Christian Bale at 18, and his Dark Knight Rises co-star Tom Hardy at 20.

The title comes in the wake of Robert deciding to take back his girlfriend Kristen Stewart following the revelation she had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

    This should be renamed. ''The sexiest male celeb in Hollywood according to American dimwits'' would be more appropriate.
