Robert Pattinson Named Sexiest Man on the Planet

The people who come up with sexiest people lists need some creativity in their lives. Every sexiest woman list names Megan Fox the winner and every sexiest man list names Rob Pattinson the winner.

Earlier today, FHMonline named Megan the sexiest woman alive, and now comes word that, surprise, surprise, Rob has been named the Sexiest Man on the planet.

The 23-year-old Twilight star was chosen the 'Sexiest Man on the Planet' by Britain’s Heat magazine, beating stars like Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Zac Efron to the title.

“Robert is obviously very easy on the eye, but a lot of his popularity has to be down to the character Edward he plays in Twilight — strong, brooding and tortured, basically most women’s fantasy boyfriend,” said the magazine’s editor, Julian Linley.

When asked what he thought about his new title, Rob said, “I’m not really afraid of it though because I don’t really know how to play up that aspect of it. I don’t know if I could ever really be cast in a heartthrob role really — apart from Twilight, which I didn’t really know was a heartthrob role. I really don’t feel I am one.”

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie used to dominate every 'Sexist' person list, but clearly they're now old news. Out with the old, in with the new! Maybe Megan and Rob can get together and make a "sexiest baby" and call it a day.
