Becoming a household name ever since he starred as Edward Cullen in vampire blockbuster "Twilight", Robert Pattinson is counted by MTV News as one of its Men of the Year. The British actor is listed at No. 4, right behind Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers who is at No. 3 and one spot ahead of Robert Downey Jr. who is ranked 5th.
Acting aside, MTV News credits Robert for singing a pair of songs on the "Twilight" soundtrack. He makes the list, moreover, because he has become the "subject of innumerable bits of fan fiction too risque and/or disturbing to reprint" on the site. MTV News also mentions his hair, rumored affair with Camilla Belle, and upcoming movie "Little Ashes" among the other things that make him covered in countless media headlines.
MTV News' Men of the Year lists stars who are considered big during the year and have "inspired the most headlines or generated the biggest amount of buzz". Making the round are Bill Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel, Nick Jonas, T-Pain, T.I., and Pete Wentz, all of whom secure the 6th to 10th spots respectively.
Rap artist Kanye West is also included in the list, being ranked at No. 2. Meanwhile, MTV News won't reveal its Man of the Year until Thursday, December 11.
