Battle of the Hot Robs: Who Had the Best Year Ever? (POLL)

It’s hard to keep up with how many Hollywood hunks share the name “Robert” (or “Rob” as some of them prefer), but Celebuzz has done the difficult task of narrowing it down to just four.

Robert Pattinson, Rob Lowe, Rob Kardashian and Robert Downey Jr. are the top contenders in our Battle of the Hot Robs, and while it’s a pretty close race for the title, we can’t help but wonder — with so many 2011 projects under their belts, which of these hot Robs had the best year ever?

Help us crown a winner by casting your vote in our poll!

If you’re having a bit of trouble choosing, here are a few facts to help you decide:

Robert Pattinson

As if he wasn’t already part of a worldwide phenomenon, Robert Pattinson’s fame level seems to rise every year. Coming out of a busy 2010, the world’s most popular vampire dove straight into filming for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1, which premiered in November 2011. He also starred in Water for Elephants alongside Reese Witherspoon and completed work on a couple of films due out next year. There was also confirmation (finally!) later in the year of his romantic relationship with co-star Kristen Stewart that had sparked rumors for several years.

Rob Lowe

This handsome actor may be the oldest of this bunch, but he is no stranger to Hollywood’s lists of hottest stars. He’s well-known for both dramatic and comedic roles, and he currently stars as Chris Traeger on NBC’s Parks and Recreation alongside the hilarious Amy Poehler. In 2011, Lowe also became an author with his book entitled Stories I Only Tell My Friends. Good looks, stellar acting and a way with words? What more can we ask of him?

Rob Kardashian

2011 was definitely the breakout year for the youngest member of the Kardashian Klan. He started off the year by playing in the 2011 NBA Celebrity Game during the NBA All-Star Weekend and then proceeded to appear in two of his family’s reality shows: Keeping up with the Kardashians and Khloe & Lamar. Rob then kept the public’s eyes on him when he announced his participation on season 13 of the popular Dancing with the Stars reality competition in which he earned second place with partner Cheryl Burke.

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. is known for his consistently great roles in both hit television series and big blockbuster movies. This iron man of actors took 2011 to film several movies including Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (out in theaters now) and The Avengers (due out in 2012). If that wasn’t enough, he’s also gearing up to film the much anticipated Iron Man 3 sequel. In October 2011, Downey also became a recipient of the American Cinematheque Award. Very impressive!
