It gives everyone, not just, home of the Sexy Beasts Bracket Game, time to focus on the important things: Like hot men. Results are in for UK’s 50 Sexiest Men of 2010. Robert Pattinson topped the list, edging out fellow Twilight star Taylor Lautner and The Vampire Diaries‘ Ian Somerhalder. This seems to suggest Damon Salvatore making it to our Sexy Beasts final was not a fluke; find out next Thursday if he or Pattinson took the title. In the meantime, let’s take a closer look at Glamour’s list. 

Definitely a lot of love for the Twilight boys, as franchise newcomer Xavier Samuel (No. 4) finished ahead of Kellan Lutz (No. 5) and Jackson Rathbone (No. 43). Samuel and Lutz both beat Johnny Depp (No. 6), but at least Depp beat JUSTIN BIEBER (No. 7). I wonder how Gerard Butler (No. 8) feels knowing he came in behind the 16-year-old…. Hayden Christensen (No. 9) somehow managed to stay relevant, and ahead of Channing Tatum (No. 10). Going farther down the list: It’s interesting that Bradley Cooper (No. 20) is now hotter than David Beckham (No. 21), but at least Becks is still sexier than THE JONAS BROTHERS (No. 22).

Other noteworthy bits: Mark Salling is the sexiest Glee star at No. 25 (Cory Monteith came in at No. 28, and Matthew Morrison, No. 42) It’s nice to see Justified‘s Timothy Olyphant (No. 29) get recognized for his hotness. Brad Pitt’s beard is probably responsible for placing him down at No. 33, but he still has bragging rights over George Clooney (No. 35). I do not understand women who would put Russell Brand (No. 37) ahead of Clive Owen (No. 40), and I say that as someone who finds humor sexy. I enjoy that Kings of Leon is a collective Jo Bro-like entity at No. 44. AND STOP THE PRESSES: WHY IS TRUE BLOOD‘S ALEXANDER SKARSGARD DOWN AT NO. 46? Is he English women’s kryptonite? Fascinating.

What about this list do you find interesting/criminal?
