Robert Pattinson has been named the sexiest man in the world.
The Twilight actor has topped Glamour's 50 Sexiest Men of 2012 poll beating a host of famous hunks to take the British magazine's title for the fourth year in a row. The 26-year-old star beat Thor star Tom Hiddleston and Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp into second and third place respectively.
The top five was rounded off by Michael Fassbender and Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
Other hunks to make the top 10 included Robert Downey Jr., Robert's Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner and Henry Cavill - who will be seen next year playing Superman in Man of Steel.
Over 40,000 people voted in this year's poll and notable entries in the top 20 include Alexander Skarsgard (14), Batman actor Christian Bale (18) and his Dark Knight Rises co-star Tom Hardy (20).
Robert Downey Jr. feels like a "big brother" to Scarlett Johansson.
The 46-year-old actor - who will star alongside the blonde beauty in The Avengers - has grown attached to his cast mates while shooting the superhero film, and he sees Scarlett, who plays the Black Widow, as a sister figure having previously worked with her on Iron Man 2.
When asked what his opinions of his fellow Avengers are, he replied, "I feel like a big brother to Scarlett and Chris Hemsworth has the whole package. Jeremy Renner is a serious actor who doesn't take himself seriously at all."
Although we have seen far too many celebrities ruin their careers with drugs and/or alcohol, there are a few who manage to turn their lives around. Robert Downey Jr. is one of the best examples we have today.
Unfortunately for Robert, this achievement means he has become Hollywood’s go-to spokesperson (outside of Dr. Drew) for substance abuse – whether he wants to be or not. Luckily, Downey knows how to handle those sensitive inquiries with class.

Gwyneth Paltrow has accused Robert Downey Jr. of being a bad kisser.
The actress locks lips with the Oscar nominee in Iron Man 2, but the actor - who plays the title character and his alter ego Tony Stark - claims he deliberately toned down the passion to stop their smooch being “weird.”
“She said to me that I didn’t know what I was doing, like it didn’t feel good,” he said. “I’m like, ‘You know what? First of all, we’re all friends, so what would be creepy would be if I was coming off all sexy to you - which by the way, I’ve done in movies and it creeps them out. So what am I going to creep you out for?’”
