Oh to be pale, young and vampire-like again. Robert Pattinson's first major break as an actor was portraying Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", but he gained international fame as the vampiric lover of Bella Swan in the "Twilight" films. His fictional relationship with Bella Swan actress Kristen Stewart soon left the world of "Twilight" and entered reality. After years of speculation, Stewart admitted to a relationship with Pattinson after images of her canoodling with film director Rupert Sanders surfaced. Pattinson was named "Sexiest Man Alive" by "People" magazine in 2008 and 2009.
