Robert Pattinson may be damaged goods after getting cuckolded by girlfriend Kristen Stewart, but in the eyes readers of at least one UK magazine, he is still the sexiest man alive.
The British actor, 26, who was blindsided by Stewart’s affair with “Snow White and the Huntsman” Director Rupert Sanders in July, was tapped by the UK edition of Glamour magazine.
More than 40,000 people voted in the poll and chose Pattinson for the fourth year running over such beefcakes as English film and television star Tom Hiddleston, 31, who made the list for the first time and finished second.

Cumberbatch is starring in “Star Trek Into Darkness” “Twelve Years a Slave,” and “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” All are filming or in post-production. He’s probably best known in the United States for 2011’s “War Horse.”
Pattinson’s four-year relationship with Stewart has been in flux ever since a tabloid broke the news about her affair in July. They have not appeared in public together, nor have they made any statements about their status as a couple. But speculation and rumors have been rife.
