Top 50 Sexiest Men
Blood sucking “bad boys” from popular paranormal movies top Glamour magazine’s list of the world’s 50 sexiest men, with Twilight star Robert Pattinson taking out the No 1 spot for the second year running.
The first five spots went to sexy vampires from the Twilight or Vampire Diaries series, followed by Johnny Depp (at 47 the second oldest in the 50 list) clocking in at No 6 and Gerard Butler (40) at No 8.
Youngest on the list was teen popster Justin Bieber (16). Other well known names included George Clooney (at 49 the oldest to get a mention) at No 35 and Robert Downey Junior (45) at No 27.
Brad Pitt (46) sneaked in at No 33, Daniel Craig (42) at No 34 and Clive Owen (45) at No 40. David Beckham (35) was one of only two sportsmen on the list, the other being fellow soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo
Names Who Didn’t Make It
Leonardo DiCaprio, Keanu Reeves and Jude Law- who have scored highly in the survey in recent years – did not even feature.
The dominance of the blood suckers was explained by Glamour’s acting editor Charlotte Duck: “Women are attracted to vampires because of the element of danger that comes with them. They are the ultimate bad boys – and women want to tame the beasts.”
The list was compiled from over 50,000 votes from the magazine’s 18 – 49 years old readership (median age 33.5).
