Vanity Fair recently asked readers to vote for the Most Handsome Man in the World, and none other than Mr. Twilight, Robert Pattinson, trounced the competition and took home the title with 51 percent (271,000) of the votes.
Commentators on VF’s site pointed to Pattinson’s acting talent, sense of humor, voice, accent and maturity as just some of the reasons he beat out the likes of Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp in the contest.
Pattinson is now filming “Remember Me” in New York City with Pierce Brosnan, who plays his father in the film. With two attractive, talented actors in such close proximity, we can’t help but compare the delicious looking duo.
And so, with no furhter ado, IrishCentral presents an RPatz-Irish 007 showdown!
In a battle of looks, talent and personality, will our Irish James Bond take home the cake, or will everyone’s favorite vampire hold on to his reigning title?
Perhaps it’s not fair to compare the two men’s acting careers – Pierce is 33 years older – but at the ripe age of 23, Pattinson has some pretty decent roles to his name.
He’s played Salvador Dali (“Little Ashes”), a handsome, intelligent wizard Cedric Diggory (“Harry Potter”) and an insanely iconic, fiercely loved vampire Edward Cullen (“Twilight”).
But alas, Golden Globe nominee Brosnan has joined the ranks of acting legends Roger Moore and Sean Connery in playing James Bond, one of the most coveted roles in Hollywood.
He’s also played Robinson Crusoe (“Robinson Crusoe”), King Arthur (“Quest for Camelot”), an ABBA-singing hunk (“Mamma Mia!”) and a rich and successful playboy (“The Thomas Crown Affair”).
Either way, Bond beats vampire any day.
Apart from acting, Pattinson is a talented musician, proficient at both the guitar and the piano. He knows how to scuba dive, and is great at darts.
Brosnan has the business angle covered, owning his own production company, Irish DreamTime, is a fisherman and is a fire eater (he performed this in the circus at a young age, and resurrected his talent in an episode of “Remington Steele”).
So normally, fire eating, being randomly amazing, would trump all, but having seen Brosnan’s cringe-inducing song and dance act in “Mamma Mia!”, I’m going to give this one to the softer-on-the-ears Pattinson.
