Robert Pattinson named our “Hollywood Hot Male Star of the Year”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The coming year could be one of transition for Robert Pattinson.
From vampire to veterinarian, perhaps? He’ll certainly try to make that leap with next year’s adaptation of “Water for Elephants.” It’s just another step in what the actor hopes will be a lengthy Hollywood career.
Pattinson was hoping more audience members would remember him in “Remember Me,” a romantic drama he released in 2010. But it was his role as undead Edward Cullen in the second “Twilight” installment – “Eclipse” – that continued to cement his status as one of the hottest celebrities working in Hollywood today.
And while Pattinson will look to continue expanding his body of work beyond Stephenie Meyer’s beloved vampire-and-werewolves series, fans won’t let him stray too far just yet. Pattinson’s on the hook for two “Breaking Dawn” films, directed by Bill Condon. The first is due in theaters on Nov. 18, 2011.
This will be a big year for Pattinson. For the first time since breaking on the scene in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” he’ll be appearing in more non-“Twilight” films than “Twilight” films. Off the screen, he’ll continue to dodge the paparazzi and fend off inquiries about his reported love life with “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart.
Because of all the heat generated by Pattinson both on screen and off, we are happy to name him our “Hollywood Hot Male Star of the Year.”
