Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson is possibly the most fancied man on the planet. His Britishness, good looks and mysterious aura make us go weak at the knees - not to mention his on-screen talent.

And with rumours flying around about his on-off romance with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart he may just be back on the market, leaving a glimmer of hope for us girls!
