Last week, we asked readers to name the sexiest pretend vampire of all-time.

In less-than-shocking results, Robert Pattinson took home over three-quarters of the votes cast.

R-Patz

But was the poll even legitimate?

Sure, Pattinson was involved. And, yes, other handsome blood suckers - such as Tom Cruise from Interview with the Vampire and Ian Somerhalder from The Vampire Diaries - were pictured.

But we've received angry emails from True Blood fans that say no vampire comparison is complete without the inclusion of Alexander Skarsgard. As always, you've asked... we've answered!

Compare the Swedish actor, whose best known American credit is portraying Eric on this HBO hit, with Pattinson below. Then, cast your vote...

Who makes the hotter pretend vampire?

Will this finally put an end to the rumors?

When asked by Great Britain's OK! magazine about his relationship with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson gave a simple answer:

We are just very good friends.

Pattinson added that he was "young, free and single," giving hope to millions of Twilight followers around the world.

For months, of course, tabloids, fans and co-stars have speculated on the status of Stewart and Pattinson, as one report even suggested the former was pregnant with the latter's baby. Ha!

  • The Thinker

Robert Pattinson stares at his "good friend" Kristen Stewart. Do you believe their relationship is strictly platonic?

Elsewhere in the interview with OK!, Pattinson spoke on his obsessive fans and his status as a sex symbol. A few excerpts:

On female admirers: I had no idea people could get so obsessed. But it’s not scary – it’s amazing. People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not.

On strange fan encounters: One time there were these four girls, in Chicago I think, and they had all scratched their necks until they bled and then when they came up to me they had these bleeding scabs. It was gross!

On his status as a heart throb: I’m so surprised things have worked out the way they have, I just keep thinking the whole time: I don’t really have the right personality to fit in to that kind of role.

** Update: A few readers have left comments, claiming this is an old interview. If that's the case, we apologize, but the OK! article itself is dated "August 3" and shows photos from last month's Comic-Con festival.

However, if this conversation with Pattinson did, indeed, take place many months ago, it means there's still a chance that Robsten is a full-fledged couple. Holla!

It may be impossible to top the New Moon sneak peeks revealed at Comic-Con last month.

Though not the highest quality, these videos depicted actual scenes from the upcoming movie, both of which focused on Taylor Lauter and Robert Pattinson with their shirts off. Hubba. Hubba.

But the latest New Moon news is almost just as exciting (read: HOT!): the film studio has released a few new promotional images of Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

In each, the actors are posing in their roles of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, respectively. It's almost as if they're staring directly into your soul. We hope you're sitting down, fans...

In late June, Stephen Moyer referred to Robert Pattinson as a very bad word.

Now, Entertainment Weekly is stoking the fire of this red hot feud by pitting the actors against one another on the cover of its latest issue.

Based on the success of the Twilight Saga and True Blood, the magazine asks why pop culture is currently embracing this genre with such enthusiasm.

“The traditional vampire story, with monsters and victims, chases and chills, is plain fun,” Alan Ball, a producer on True Blood, said in response to this question.

“But they can often reveal the general state of the cultural psyche.”

Hollywood isn't done with sucking up the public's taste for blood, either. This fall, The Vampire Diaries premieres on The CW.

This all started years ago, however, as Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt made hearts melt in Interview with the Vampire, the 1994 movie that helped launch the career of both these A-listers.

A couple months ago, we asked if Paul Wesley compared to Robert Pattinson.

Readers responded, overwhelmingly, in the negative. Many seemed aghast that we dared to compare anyone with the Twilight hunk, but it only seemed natural.

Bruised and Battered

After all, on The Vampire Diaries, Wesley is portraying a vampire with a good heart and an eye on a lovely, young, human high school student. Sound familiar?

At Comic-Con last week, aware of the inevitable comparisons, Wesley admitted that he's really no Robert Pattinson.

"I just want to create a character independent of that," Wesley told a fan that asked about similarities between he and Pattinson's roles. "Besides, I think nine out of 10 girls would throw me under a bus to get to Edward Cullen."

The crowd booed at that response. But is it accurate? You tell us!

Who makes the cuter pretend vampire?

Jennifer Love Hewitt may converse with the afterlife on The Ghost Whisperer, but it's a different, unusual creature she seems to truly crush on.

Speaking to MTV News at last week's Comic-Con festival, the actress couldn't hide her extreme affection for a certain famous vampire.

The Thinker

“Who’s not Team Edward?” Hewitt gushed, clearly referencing the character played by Robert Pattinson in the Twilight Saga. “There is not a girl in the world who’s not Team Edward! Have you met girls who are not Team Edward? Well, they are not girls! They’re aliens from another planet who should not be allowed to exist.”

Ouch. Come on, Jennifer. Taylor Lautner, the man in charge of Team Jacob, isn't that bad, is he?

Heck, in our latest poll results, asking readers if they'd rather sleep with Robert or Taylor, the latter has an impressive 49% of the vote!

But it's safe to say that Hewitt would prefer to wake up next to Pattinson in the morning.

“I’d pass out [if I met him]. I can’t talk about it, ‘cause I’d pass out,” she told MTV News. “It’s because he’s Edward. Listen, Edward can fly you through the forest. He’s like Aladdin with vampire teeth — there’s magic-carpet rides. He can sing. He can watch you sleep. He plays music. He sniffs your neck. I mean, please!”

The actress is also happy to let producers of the Twilight franchise know that she's available, at any time, for any role.

“I want a part so bad. Any part’s fine," she said. "I will be the vampire who carries Robert Pattinson’s luggage in the airport, that is the part that I will play if they need it. [My dork of a boyfriend, Jamie Kennedy] wants to play a werewolf, so we’re both putting it out there."

What do you think, fans? Is there a role you wanna see Jennifer Love Hewitt take on in Eclipse or Breaking Dawn?

Robert Pattinson doesn't understand all the fuss fans make over him. The actor somehow does not consider himself good looking.

But at least he's a nice, kind-hearted individual.

This is a stark contrast to the character he plays in the Twilight Saga, as Pattinson told Britain's OK! that he truly can't fathom the appeal of Edward Cullen.

“With virtually anyone, the nice guys always seem to come last. You always get weirdos like Edward who seem to attract women for some reason," the actor said. “If Edward wasn’t a fictional character and you met him in reality, he is like one of those guys who would probably be an axe murderer or something.”

Apparently the fact that a vampire wouldn't be a fictional character isn't frightening enough.

Hot Goofball

As for the attention he's garnered, Pattinson countered claims that he's afraid of fans.

“I had no idea people could get so obsessed. But it’s not scary - it’s amazing. People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not.”

Is Robert out of line in dissing Edward in such a manner? We know he plays a vampire, but is it really a good idea to bite the hand that feeds you?

While fans hyperventilated over their appearance together at Comic-Con last week, the interaction between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart was anything but romantic.

There were even rumors that the movie studio behind New Moon, Summit Entertainment, specifically forbade the rumored couple from getting close to one another in public (more on that below).

However, sources have confirmed that Pattinson and Stewart did, indeed, get whisked away to the 11th floor of Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego on Wednesday night for some quality time together. In secret.

"They were so private," an insider said to E! News. "They were hardly seen by anyone. Their people made sure of that. But [Rob and Kristen] were there. They had a secret entrance to the hotel and everything... Who knows their specific sleeping arrangements, but [Rob and Kristen] were on the same hotel floor."

We're guessing that's not true. They were likely on the same hotel bed... if you know what we mean!

Comic-Con Couple

But, wait, why would Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart need to hide their relationship in such a manner? It's all about marketing.

As fans of the Twilight franchise know, New Moon focuses almost entirely on the burgeoning relationship between Bella (Stewart) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner). Some believe Summit doesn't want to ruin the effect of that storyline by having Rob and Kristen get cozy together in front of fans.

"Right now, it's all about Taylor and Kristen," said a source, referring to the film's ad campaign. "Rob's physically almost never in the movie! The relationship between [Taylor and Kristen] is a huge part of the sequel, so fans need to get used to seeing them together. Not Kristen and Rob. That's the way it's going to be."

It wasn't that way in the photos below, at least. Click on each for larger shots of this adorable twosome:

He might be considered the best looking individual on the planet, but Robert Pattinson says he's pretty much the same guy that used to walk down the sidewalk unnoticed.

“I’d like to think that I haven’t changed that much," the actor said at Comic-Con last week. "Within myself, I don’t think I’ve changed. When I’m walking down the street, I look down a lot more often. It seems to keep building, the magnitude of this franchise."

Not that the hunky star is complaining. He knows how lucky he has it.

"I pretty much live an almost identical life apart from being recognized. That's not exactly the worst thing in the world."

As he covers pretty much every tabloid across every supermarket aisle in the universe, Pattinson still can't believe the fame.

"It's funny, but about a year ago I'd talk to girls and no one would be interested. Then when it was announced I would be in Twilight and the book's author gave me her seal of approval, everyone seemed to change their mind. The attention I get now is just mind bending."

It's also well-deserved. Watch Robert in these New Moon sneak peeks and you'll know what we mean!

As if Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner sitting next to each other in the same place wasn't enough, Twilight devotees went absolutely crazy when not one but two new clips from New Moon were debuted at Comic-Con yesterday.

Before you watch them, you should be aware of two things:

  • Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are both shirtless. This may make it difficult to focus on anything else for the rest of the weekend.
  • While the first clip certainly hints at a Bella and Jacob romance, the second clip illustrates her undying love for Edward Cullen, as well.
  • The video quality is not great, and the screaming 'tween girls having nervous breakdowns makes some of the audio hard to decipher.

Follow the jump for two exclusive clips from New Moon ...
