Robert Pattinson Is People’s Sexiest Man Alive..Maybe

UPDATE: According to reports, the Robert Pattinson People cover is a forgery concocted by cruel hoaxsters intent on toying with our hearts. Why must the world be so unfair?

Those eyes. That pout. That stubble. The unkempt flow of his devil-may-care mane. Is it any wonder that People magazine has dubbed New Moon star Robert Pattinson the top hunk in show-biz?

To the surprise of probably no one, R-Pattz got the Sexiest Man Alive nod from People for 2009, landing his dreamy mug on a new special double-issue. Pattinson beat out such studly competitors as Star Trek star Chris Pine and Transformers dude Shia LaBeouf for the honor.
