1. Robert Pattinson
Robert Pattinson skyrocketed into fame this year, scoring the number one spot on the PopSugar 100 for his first time on the list! The Harry Potter alum quickly became an international heartthrob as Twilight’s Edward Cullen, with his charming good looks and casual demeanor. He turned heads at Cannes and had us captivated at the MTV Movie Awards, and his flirtatious relationship with Kristen Stewart has hearts everywhere aflutter. We’re so happy to welcome Rob to the PopSugar 100 as this year’s number one! Congrats!

On June 1, the morning after their smoldering, almost-but-not-quite kiss at the MTV Movie Awards, Twilight twosome Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart stayed in a 1920s bungalow at The Charlie, a West Hollywood hotel named for onetime resident Charlie Chaplin.
Fittingly, they bunked in a cottage called the Valentino – as in Rudolph, the silent-screen romantic idol – and it made for an idyllic nest, with its two bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen and even a quaint window seat.
“They were very sweet together,” an insider tells OK! of Kristen and Robert. “They were lovely.” Read more…
At the Paris press opening last night, Bonnie Wright was interviewed by an french entertainment site where she talked about handling fame and what she thought of Twilight star Rob Pattinson:
During the evening Bonnie was rather reserved and shy towards the many journalists and their neverending questions. At the same time that’s life when you’re a star at 18. Even so, I managed to squeeze my way to her and the twins James and Oliver to ask some questions.
Hi Bonnie, what’s the effect of having so many fans at your age? Isn’t it hard to manage?
“Well, first of all, I have a lot of great people around me who help manage this part of my life. People spend a lot of time taking care of all the letters and presents that are sent to me. But it is a great thing that have to me and I must say I live a very good life even though I sometimes wish for a bit more peace and quiet and to maintain my privacy.”
Now a little fun question! What do you think about Rob Pattinson?
(Laugher) “I can’t deny the fact that he is cute, but he is not my type…”

Bright flashes greeted him at every turn. His face was the centerpiece of every magazine, and his name was a-tip every tongue in the free world. In 1997, Leonardo DiCaprio made his big break with Titanic, and the world would not forget his name.
At twenty-three years old, DiCaprio had already earned one Academy Award nomination for his work with Johnny Depp and Juliette Lewis in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? and had stunned his fair share of audiences with his brilliant portrayal of Jim Carroll in The Basketball Diaries. Some were hard-pressed to forget his name after his newcomer addition to the cast of Growing Pains back in 1991. His work in Romeo + Juliet would capture the hearts of many, and his work with Sharon Stone, Gene Hackman, and Russell Crowe in The Quick And The Dead allowed DiCaprio to pass muster with film aficionados the world over. Yet, nothing could prepare DiCaprio for the spotlight that would shine on him after his work as Jack Dawson in the unforgettable and mega-blockbuster hit film Titanic. Opposite the beautiful Kate Winslet, and led by the wise hand of James Cameron, DiCaprio’s work was a sure thing for his success.
Ever since, Leonardo DiCaprio has become the stuff of legends. Earning another two Oscar nominations for his parts in Blood Diamond and The Aviator, DiCaprio fast became a favorite of Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese (who he worked with in The Departed, The Aviator, and Gangs of New York). DiCaprio’s mere presence in a film draws in global audiences. With remarkable films such as Catch Me If You Can in his post-Titanic resume, DiCaprio has been no stranger to hard work and success.

So much delish dirt about disgustingly gorgeous people today, folks! First up, we can confirm that Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have definitely split. A source very close to Ms. Fox tells us that she and Brian are no longer together, although they “remain very fond of each other.”
Looks like what we exclusively told you back in March was the final straw in the couple’s relaysh, but M & B will still “get together” often and are totally on good terms, we’re told. “Officially, though, it’s over between them and has been for a while,” dishes Megan’s close pal.
So what really went down with Meg and Robert Pattinson back in the day? Could he have been the third party responsible for Megan and Brian’s tension? Read more…
Back in April, Vanity Fair held an online poll to determine “the most beautiful woman in the world”. Vanity Fair had a pre-set list of beautiful women – everyone from Penelope Cruz to Queen Rania of Jordan, from Gisele Bundchen to Halle Berry. As it turned out, the earliest contender ended up winning the challenge, and Angelina Jolie was crowned “the most beautiful” after thousands of votes had been cast.
Someone at Vanity Fair was having fun, so they decided to host another online poll – this time for the world’s “most handsome man”. The list does include some of the most spectacular-looking men in the world. Here’s Vanity Fair’s complete list: Javier Bardem, David Beckham, Gael García Bernal, Tom Brady, George Clooney, Daniel Craig, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jakob Dylan, Nacho Figueras, James Franco, Jon Hamm, Hugh Jackman, Taylor Kitsch, Clive Owen, Robert Pattinson, Brad Pitt, and Denzel Washington. Um… Jakob Dylan? Son of Bob Dylan? What the…?
So, with that kind of line up of hot men, who would you imagine the early contenders to be? I just cast my vote for Clive Owen, but I would think perhaps Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio or George Clooney would the winning the first rounds. Not so much – even Brad “Twelve Percent” Pitt isn’t doing so well. The poll has been consumed by Twihards! Currently, Robert Pattinson (and his albeit lovely jawline) has 59% of the votes! Do Twihards even read Vanity Fair? Who alerted them to the poll?
Now, I love me some R-Pattz. I have become a convert. I love the way his shoulders slump a little, and I’ve begun to enjoy the Teen Beat-quality coverage of Pattinson’s every move. I like his messy hair, and I have dreams about his profile. My desire for R-Pattz makes me feel cougar-ish, and I’m not even that much older than him! Now that I’ve established my love for R-Pattz, I would like to speak directly to the Twihards. Robert Pattinson is not the most beautiful man in the world. That’s enough. We’re all crushing on him like crazy, and he is a very cute young man, but he’s not the end-all of manly beauty. Can this obsession be over soon?
Stephenie Meyer won’t be using MySpace to clear up Twilight rumors any time soon.
The author of the best-selling, four-part vampire love series announced on her official website that she is kicking her social networking page to the curb.
“It was a lot of fun while it lasted, and I really miss the early days when I could hang out with people online,” Meyer wrote. “Many of you are hilarious and insightful, and I wish it was easier for me to talk to everyone the way I used to.”
Meyer warned against being duped by imposters…
“With MySpace no longer in existence, I can now clearly state that…there is no other outlet where I communicate with people online,” Meyer continued. “I do not have a Facebook page, and I have never had one. I don’t do Twitter. So if you’re communicating with someone online that you think is me, it’s not.”
Meanwhile, Meyer gave a shout-out to Rick Riordan’s best-selling tween book series, Percy Jackson & the Olympians.
“If you’re looking for some beach reading, you may want to try [the series] if you haven’t already,” she wrote. “My son finally finished book five yesterday so I could read it today. It was a fantastic end to a fantastic series. I tip my hat to you, Mr. Riordan!”
The clouds are low, the sky is grey and moody. It’s a perfect day for the vampires to come out — or at least the cast and crew of New Moon, the follow-up to last year’s hit film Twilight.

Though Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have laughed off their hooking-up reports, Emma Watson says she believes that there must be something special happens between the twosome. The depicter of Hermione Granger on “Harry Potter” recently dished on the matter in an interview with Entertainment Wise. “Oh god! He’s absolutely hot!” she talked about the British hottie. “He’s driving me crazy…But we’re just good friends and can be on the phone for hours, because I know that there’s something going on between him and Kristen Stewart.”
Emma Watson worked together with Robert Pattinson when he portrayed Cedric Diggory on “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”. Talking about the 23-year-old hunk’s sudden raise of fame, she said, “I’m really happy that Rob became so popular on ‘Twilight’. He’s so gorgeous.”
