Women love Pattinson. There's no accounting for taste.

Robert Pattinson is the man most women would like to kiss according to a new survey. When it comes to kissing they'd rather kiss Rob than swap spit with Brad Pitt.

Pattinson finishes at 54 percent, well clear of Johnny Depp in second place at only 17 percent and Brad Pitt in third at just ten percent.

Pattinson's victory ushers in a new era of Hollywood top dogs. Depp, George Clooney and Brad Pitt have been on top for so long in the male romance lead stakes that it seems they would be there for ever.

Pattinson however, as befits a Brit, has claimed the crown. Not only that his fellow Twilighters, Kellan Lutz and Taylor Lautner also makes the tip top list. So it is out with the old, in with the new as we turn towards a new year

It goes to show that Pattinson and “Twilight” generally is more than a teen fad phenomenon. There appears to be many women well into their late twenties and thirties who believe that robbing a kiss from Rob starts their engines. This latest survey bears this out.
