Robert Pattinson is beating everyone on Vanity Fair’s ‘most beautiful man’ poll


Back in April, Vanity Fair held an online poll to determine “the most beautiful woman in the world”. Vanity Fair had a pre-set list of beautiful women – everyone from Penelope Cruz to Queen Rania of Jordan, from Gisele Bundchen to Halle Berry. As it turned out, the earliest contender ended up winning the challenge, and Angelina Jolie was crowned “the most beautiful” after thousands of votes had been cast.

Someone at Vanity Fair was having fun, so they decided to host another online poll – this time for the world’s “most handsome man”. The list does include some of the most spectacular-looking men in the world. Here’s Vanity Fair’s complete list: Javier Bardem, David Beckham, Gael García Bernal, Tom Brady, George Clooney, Daniel Craig, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jakob Dylan, Nacho Figueras, James Franco, Jon Hamm, Hugh Jackman, Taylor Kitsch, Clive Owen, Robert Pattinson, Brad Pitt, and Denzel Washington. Um… Jakob Dylan? Son of Bob Dylan? What the…?

So, with that kind of line up of hot men, who would you imagine the early contenders to be? I just cast my vote for Clive Owen, but I would think perhaps Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio or George Clooney would the winning the first rounds. Not so much – even Brad “Twelve Percent” Pitt isn’t doing so well. The poll has been consumed by Twihards! Currently, Robert Pattinson (and his albeit lovely jawline) has 59% of the votes! Do Twihards even read Vanity Fair? Who alerted them to the poll?

Now, I love me some R-Pattz. I have become a convert. I love the way his shoulders slump a little, and I’ve begun to enjoy the Teen Beat-quality coverage of Pattinson’s every move. I like his messy hair, and I have dreams about his profile. My desire for R-Pattz makes me feel cougar-ish, and I’m not even that much older than him! Now that I’ve established my love for R-Pattz, I would like to speak directly to the Twihards. Robert Pattinson is not the most beautiful man in the world. That’s enough. We’re all crushing on him like crazy, and he is a very cute young man, but he’s not the end-all of manly beauty. Can this obsession be over soon?

Here’s Robert Pattinson shirtless & kissing Kristen Stewart on the set of New Moon on May 27th. Thanks to Ciao Pix/ and VENTURINI/

    Oh Kaiser! What’s wrong with us? Why is he so dreamy?

    I just can’t figure out why he’s growing on me dammit!

    But yea, I second the him not being the “most beautiful man”. There’s an extensive men I’d like to lick before Rob, though he IS on that list…

    Edit: So I just cast my vote for Denzel “Goddamn he is so fine” Washington (it was admittedly a toss up between him and Clive for me, but something about that tall dark and handsome business….) And I just noticed that Rob’s now at 60% LOL.

  2. papier says:

    you spelled pole wrong

  3. Musey says:

    Robert Pattinson? Seriously? He’s hot, sure, and I have a big old soft spot for him from all his cute quirky interviews, but compared to most of the others there, he’s downright homely.

    What I want to know is where the hell Sendhil Ramamurthy is on that list. Now *there’s* a contender for Most Beautiful Man In The World.

  4. Enonymous says:

    God, the standard of real beauty has really plummeted. For shame people.

  5. Katt says:

    Mmmm. Sorry Twihards, my vote goes to James Franco. 😉

    I love the book as much as the next girl, but come on. Robert IS NOT a real vampire. THERE, I said it. Dx

  6. geronimo says:

    Ha! No one stands a chance against the Twihards. 🙂

    Can’t believe my Javier has only 1% of the vote. Look at him, for God’s sakes!! I demand a recount.

  7. ~Kate~ says:

    Gael García Bernal…yummy!!

  8. Carrie says:

    I must be the only person on the planet that doesn’t see the appeal. He just doesn’t do it for me.

  9. I Choose Me says:

    I don’t have a problem with Robert Pattison I think he’s a pretty good-looking guy and I like his personality (I’m judging by various appearences and interviews) but he’s just not my cup of tea.

    I really hate these freaking lists btw, they only seem to reflect who’s popular of the minute. That said, the only guys on there that would get my vote are Javier Bardeem and Clive Owen. I love Denzel as an actor but he never did it for me either.

  10. mae says:

    I find nothing appealing about Robert.He looks kinda shifty to me.

  11. Bubulle says:

    I can’t see the appeal of this guy. And I also don’t get the twilight madness I mean seriously the movie was so lame. I guess I’m an old fart.

  12. sayrah says:

    I guess I have to see Twilight because I really don’t get his appeal at all

  13. Layla says:

    He is just disgusting.

  14. Nancy says:

    June 8th, 2009 at 4:11 pm you spelled pole wrong

    It’s not spelled wrong, it’s not like a pole in the yard.

  15. Mel says:

    Oh god dammit!
    He is hot .. Ii love him in twilight!
    Hes so sweet to kristen and it just makes me love him more!

  16. Mel says:

    Btw yes you are blubelle!
    Twilight is amazin.. You just dont know good from your lame ass!

  17. Fiona says:

    R.Patz all the way!!!He left the competition eating dust….

  18. pebbles says:

    meh. i don’t see the appeal at all.

  19. hunnybe says:

    ewww! Not to be mean but this man looks like a broke down druggie. I really do not see the appeal in this man. I guess the people find those attractive who they are told to be considered attractive. yuck!!!!

  20. georgiagrl says:


  21. copperwoman says:

    Ew, he looks like early man. And he has bad teeth. He is never really photographed or shot with a full toothy grin and I know why.

    My vote goes to Gael Garcia Bernal or Johnny Depp. Can we all get with the program now?

  22. katie says:

    i bet he is winning bc facebook’s fan page of twilight sent out a post about this poll and had a direct link to the site.

  23. Camille says:

    I can not believe that R-Patz would beat out Clive Owen or Johnny Depp in a poll like this. How ridiculous.

    And although there is sort of something about R-Patz, I mean he’s not ugly, but when I saw his smashed up, weird looking profile in Twilight (his nose in particular) I just thought wtf??
    I don’t get it. Not really. Sorry Kaiser.

  24. jennifer says:

    Eh, he’s a very nice looking guy but in NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM the “most beautiful”, ESPECIALLY if the likes of Johnny Depp, Gael, Javier, Clive, Brad etc etc are on this list.

    BTW why is he covered in polka dots…??? O_o

  25. chalkdustgirl says:


  26. Aud says:

    The man is gorgeous, but I would not vote him most gorgeous. I just like these pics cuz he looks like he has chicken pox 🙂

  27. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    He is ugly. All this poll does is show the power of the gay and tween vote. End of story.

    I’m dithering over voting for Johnny Depp or Gael Garcia Bernal.

  28. G. says:

    Ick. R-Pattz is NOT all that sexy. His facial expressions are pretty awkward looking to me. Jonny Depp FTW.

  29. Jen says:

    Jennifer, the dots are for the special effects to be added in later after filming. Some of you are so funny. The ones that think he’s not attractive need a cat scan!

  30. Christina X says:

    Funny, I think he’s bone ugly.

    There’s the thing that’s stupid about the “100 Most Attractive People” lists. Where are the sources? Who are they asking? I’m sure that no matter which magazine, the only statistic are its subscribers or regular readers. All the lists are biased toward one demographic.

    And just because you’re famous doesn’t mean you’re more genetically blessed than any other human being on the planet. Even though beauty is in the eye of the beholder, some celebrities are better looking than other ones, but ultimately when they’re not all dolled up for movie roles/music videos/magazines/events, they look as “average” as everyone else does.

    Just because they spend a lot of time, effort, and money on maintaining their bodies, hair, makeup, and clothing doesn’t mean they’re inherently better looking at say…someone at work. I’m really tired of hearing members of both genders whining about how there aren’t enough attractive members of the opposite sex because they expect them to look like Robert Pattinson or Megan Fox, when in reality, celebrities would look like ass if their careers didn’t depend on it too.

  31. Jane says:

    When I first saw Cedric played by Rob, I went WTF but he played him well because he was a charismatic character.

    Then when I found out Edward would be played by him, I once again thought WTF times 10.

    It’s all about the acting, right?

  32. Mrs.Darcy says:

    I do think Rob is hot but can see why those who haven’t seen Twilight don’t get it – he just is more amazing when on screen, esp. as Edward, than in still photography. Kind of the way Christian Slater was hot in Heathers but not really that great looking. Although I do think Rob is cute now gnerally, that Twilight buzz is hard to shake! All of this said, he is not one iota as beautiful as my forever crush Johnny Depp, who will always get my vote in any poll for anything, that man is perfection!

  33. ehh says:

    What’s wrong with you people to like this R-patt guy. I have two words of wisdom for you: JAVIER BARDEM!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  34. Bex says:

    I fully agree with ehh.
    As a more mature woman I prefer a masculine man. Javier is 100 percent masculinity grrr….

  35. Lisa says:

    “he’s not the end-all of manly beauty.”

    Don’t be silly. He is.

  36. Hieronymus Grexx says:

    Replace beautiful with “rat-faced” and man with “fairy”.

  37. Marie says:

    Oh God NO!!! Am I the only one that can separate the Edward role from that skinny white actor?? How can he bit Pitt, Deep and others way more beautiful, sexy and better actors??

  38. taylor jones says:

    Those black dots all over his face and some on his body. Is that bad photography? I guess since he is a vampire, the sun is burning black marks on him? Or are they just sarcomas or sunspots?

  39. Yoshi.6 says:

    Honestly, he looks like he smells. He is also highly unattractive! I just dont get it.

  40. jennifer says:

    Jennifer, the dots are for the special effects to be added in later after filming.

    Thanks, Jen! I thought maybe because he was out in the sun it had something to do with “vampires in the sun” or something – as you can tell I’ve never seen the movie…lol 😉

  41. mandajamin says:

    Oh i totally second the Gael!!
    freaking-a this vampire guy is NOT attractive…i can think of so many others i would put into a list of extremely attractive
    Anderson Silva anyone?

  42. gg says:

    Robert has a deadpan face and looks depressed to me. He does not look like a person who likes life.

  43. EnglishRose says:

    Oh ye of little faith. Robert is GORGEOUS. He is not finished growing into the incredible man he will be once he’s aged a bit more. To really appreciate him, go take a look at the deleted scenes of him in the movie Vanity Fair…if a young stallion like that doesn’t make you swoon, I don’t know what does. GQ photo shoot anyone? What makes Rob so seductive is that he knows who he is and what he wants, and it comes through in all he does and how he carries himself. Beauty is attraction and he’s the most attractive of the bunch with mega-amped-up fame right now. Deal with it, he has to be the most loved person on the planet, bar none.

  44. rbsesq says:

    Kaiser, there are several fansites devoted to the Twilight series (not sure what the etiquette is, so I won’t list them). Whenever one of the stars is mentioned in the media in any way, shape or form, they post about it. In a case like this when one of the stars is involved in some kind of poll, they immediately mobilize fans and include a link to the site so people can vote.

  45. Kelley says:

    I wouldnt consider myself a “Twihard” by any stretch of the imagination – I read the books, but could barely stay awake for the movie. (Also, I’m a forty year old single woman with a *very* healthy social life, not some drooling sex-starved fangirl housewife or teenager). That said, I would totally vote for this kid as World’s Hottest right now. His face is just about perfect – classically proportioned, but just wonky enough to keep him from being “pretty”. And some of us like the lanky, skinny, aint-got-no-ass, sad-eyed poet boys who might not shave every day…mmm-hmm. I’d hit it.

  46. dubdub2000 says:

    I need to go watch that movie because I really, really do not get what the big hoohaa is about him.

    He always seems dressed like crap (think Pete Doherty), his hair is always a mess (but not in a cool way) and he just does not look very hygienic (sp?)

    Oh and those abs were painted on.

  47. aw! says:

    He’s a nasty little boy. I see nothing in him that is good-looking or sexy. This always happens when someone becomes popular, no matter what they look like.

  48. Lisa says:

    It’s fun being apparently the only person who hasn’t seen Twilight and yet loves this guy.

    yum yum yum

  49. Jenny says:

    What this poll means is that Robert has a huge fanbase, and that they are fighting for him to win. Where are all the fans of these other good-looking men? Why aren’t they fighting for their fave to win?? Oh wait, they are! Rob is the hottest guy on this list, and us “Twihards” aren’t afraid to say so! Brad Pitt is a has-been, George has had his glory, now it is time for a fresh face. And not a pretty boy, don’t touch my hair kind of guy, Rob is down-to-earth and an honestly genuine humble guy! He deserves every vote he gets!

  50. Stephany says:

    Of course he’s not the most beautiful for everyone – god, if that was the case, there would be no procreation. He is slim, elegant, artistic, hysterical and clueless, pale, intelligent, and has bones that near perfection. He’s also young, drunk, silly, absent, and disarmingly self-aware. I’m 43 and I love to watch him -he is lovely and much fun.

  51. alias says:

    k, i have voted for him. to tell u the truth the 1st time i saw the trailer i didnt like him at all . i have listened to ppl describing him as the British zac effron and i thought that was absurd. he repulsed me . but as said beauty is in the eye of the beholder , twilight have changed the way i see him , i think now that he is really cute. maybe bcoz he is portreying the character of Edward Cullen ,Edward is described as really good looking guy. But what really made me like him is how crazy , down to earth kind of guy , so we see the ppl that we like as good looking!!!!!!!!!!!

  52. jlfamous says:

    he is not beautiful at all!! taylor lautner is the real beuty!! i love you tay

  53. heather says:

    to each there own…but to be honest i dont find Depp all that damn atractive eather. women all have there tastes and for me Pitt or men that are bulked up like him dosent don’t do it for me…pattinson is me he has this genuine masculine good looks like say rudolph valentino in the silent movie era,ok so he is not ripped like vin diesel…dosent make him less of a man like most of you are implying…there is nothing wrong nor less masculine about robert pattinson at all his body is fine by me!..anyway did any of you stop to think that maybe the pole was based on more than looks and about the whole package…cause robert also seems briliant,sweet,funny and down to earth.
