WHY IS ROBERT PATTINSON NO 17?
Imagine everywhere you go women fawn at your feet: in fact you spend most of your time batting them off in between managing your £32 million fortune. Now imagine that at Forbes magazine has named you one of the most powerful celebs in the world and Times magazine has you down as one of the 100 most influential men in the world - oh and you're still only 25. Welcome to Robert Pattinson's world.
His role as the sensitive vampire Edward Cullen in 2008’s Twilight catapulted Londoner Pattinson’s face into stardom and into the high school lockers of girls the world over. He's raised the bar on how women measure good looks, and has also become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Not that we hate him for it or anything you understand. The jammy git.

A survey of over 7000 readers of website AskMen to find whose achievements, profile and status had the biggest impact on UK life over the last 12 months
Drew Lubega, UK Editor of AskMen.com, said: "This was the year that our readers believe Prince William finally came of age, making the royal family accessible and cool, in a way that the previous generation failed. He's a hard worker determined to use his global profile for good causes.
"Everyone who makes the Top 49 have experienced an incredible year - shaping the opinions and tastes of men across the UK. Making the list is an achievement, but against the toughest economic background for almost a century, it's incredibly telling that our Prime Minister wasn't considered more influential by young Brits."
