Poor Robert Pattinson. Kristen Stewart has "done him wrong" by engaging in torrid PDA with Rupert Sanders. That's sad, but he'll get over it--eventually. And, of course, he still has his fans. To millions of women worldwide, Rob is the epitome of masculine beauty and sex appeal. He is, after all, the Twilight heart-throb. Regardless of what La Stewart has done or might still do, he'll always have that. Or not. It seems Twihards are rating RPattz a little lower on the hotness scale since his lady-love's cheating made embarrassing headlines.
Yes, impossible as it seems, Pattinson ranked below two of his male Twilight Saga co-stars in hotness. Pattinson still makes their hearts throb of course, just not as much as the other guys. Alas, in an online poll that asked the single question: "Which Twilight Hottie looks best shirtless?" Rob came in third out of four possible choices. Okay, okay. Rob has often admitted in the past that he has "body image' issues. And how could anyone hope to compete with Taylor Lautner's chiselled, muscular physical perfection? Right?
Actually, Taylor Lautner's name was never mentioned in the poll. (Obviously they realized his inclusion would be unfair to all the other guys.) No, Kristen Stewart's estranged beau was creamed by Boo Boo Stewart who plays Seth and Kellan Lutz who plays Emmett. Rob, who garnered 20.55 percent of the votes beat out only Alex Meraz who plays Paul. Meraz got 17.27 percent of the votes. Boo Boo Stewart left Rob face down in the dust with 39.16 percent of the votes, and Kellan Lutz trounced him by a narrower margin--23.02 percent.
So, there you have it. Do you think the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal has had a deleterious psychological effect on the way Robert Pattinson's fans perceive his sexiness? Or was his poor placing in the poll simply because now that KStew's gone, there's no one to make him go paddle-boarding?
