For the second year in a row, Robert Pattinson was voted the World's Sexiest Man in 2011 by the UK edition of Glamour magazine.

Twilight star Pattinson placed number one on Glamour UK's sexiest man on the planet list, beating out co-star Taylor Lautner for the title.

So for the second time on the spot, R-Patz is crowned your sexiest man on the planet, Glamour UK wrote. He's wrestled the top spot from his co-star and - votes combined - proves the love among the Twi-hards is still strong. And that's only set to intensify when Breaking Dawn hits cinema screens next month. Yes. you'll once again get to ogle Edward in all his brooding, marble-skinned glory! Oh and we finally get to see the big sex scene. Team Edward, prepare to lose your shiz!

London-born heartthrob Pattinson started his career as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, before his biggest break as the vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight series based on Stephanie Meyer's books. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 2 is set to release next year.

While Twilight made him an instant sensation amongst the ladies, Pattison has begun moving to more adult roles. He recently starred in Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon. He is also in the upcoming film Bel Ami with Uma Thurman and the lead role in director David Cronenberg's Comopolis.

Currently dating Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart, the couple was awarded Most Stylish Couple last year by InStyle magazine.
