Robert Pattinson is People's sexiest man alive for 2009! Well, possibly.

The Hollywood Gossip has posted a People cover that the magazine (via Twitter, how very Twihard of them) has insisted is not real. Still, the brooding 'Twilight' hunk (who's currently on the cover of Vanity Fair) definitely sells magazines. We can only imagine the uproar if he isn't named Sexiest Man Alive.

The Hollywood Gossip has posted a People cover that the magazine (via Twitter, how very Twihard of them) has insisted is not real. Still, the brooding 'Twilight' hunk (who's currently on the cover of Vanity Fair) definitely sells magazines. We can only imagine the uproar if he isn't named Sexiest Man Alive.

The current reigning Sexiest Man Alive, Hugh Jackman, is prepared to hand over his crown to the new hunk, whomever he is. "I thought there were thousands of other guys that deserved it, but it's been a great year. But now the pressure's off," he told People. "I can be a slob again."

No news at the People website, although Pattinson is receiving ample coverage, thanks to last night's L.A .premiere of 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon.'

The other RPattz tidbit that the Web is salivating over today? According to Showbizspy.com, Pattinson would gladly get naked on the big screen, but only (of course) for the "right role." Hey! He told us that, back in April, in Moviefone's exclusive Robert Pattinson interview, when he said that going nude for the 2008 film 'Little Ashes,' in which he plays young Salvador Dali, was "uncomfortable."

"It's funny because Spanish people have no problem with nudity at all, and I mean at all. And English people obviously do have the most enormous problem with it," Pattinson told us.

Robert, we're sure that your fans would have absolutely no problem with it whatsoever.
