Robert Pattinson: April’s ‘GQ’ Coverboy?

By: Betsy Waldman / February 5, 2009

Hang on to your newsstands, Twilight fans—it looks like Robert Pattinson is about to cover more than bedroom walls

After rampant speculation on fan sites, sources tell Celebuzz that Pattinson will grace the April cover of GQ Magazine, what we’re told is the magazine’s offerings for What’s Hot in 2009.

“For sure April,” our source says.

While a magazine rep said the Conde Nast title does “not confirm or comment about upcoming issues before they have been completed or closed,” the glossy has been no stranger to heat-seeking stars.

Jennifer Aniston caused mass hysteria in January when she showed on the cover draped in nothing but a tie, and Gossip Girl hunk Penn Badgley proved his juggling talents that same month.

And while April is the Hot Issue, don’t expect Pattinson to flash some Taylor Lautner-tight abs.

The hunky actor reportedly indicated it’s “definitely true” he’d much rather hit a pub than the treadmill.

Looks like he’ll have to rely on that trusty face—the one that recently graced Australia’s Girlfriend magazine with costar Kirsten Stewart, as seen below.
