It’s official! There can be no more debate! Shove it, Matt Damon!

As if his world wasn’t spinning fast enough these days, Robert Pattinson has received an honor previously bestowed on the most well-known A-list actors and celebrities:

People magazine has named him the Sexiest Man Alive.

The Twilight Saga hunk follows in the (HOT!) foosteps of men such as George Clooney, Brad Pitt and last year’s winner, Hugh Jackman. Rob will actually appear next alongside Jackman in a film titled Unbound Captives. Expect it to be very sexy.

As someone that shuns the spotlight, it should be interesting to see how Pattinson reacts to being included on a list that includes such mainstream stars as Clooney, Pitt and Johnny Depp.

Do you think Robert deserves this honor? Who do you think is the sexiest man alive?

** UPDATE: According to People‘s Twitter feed, this is not the real magazine cover. However, all reports indicate Pattinson WILL be named the Sexiest Man Alive, so the rest of the post/poll is valid.

** UPDATE, Take Two: Or not. Johnny Depp has actually been named the Sexiest Man Alive. Damn you, photoshop and whomever made the cover above! It’s a good thing the name of our website is The Hollywood GOSSIP and not The Hollywood Fact.
