Age: 27
Notable Role: Eric Packer in Cosmopolis (2012)

The actor who became famous for portraying a sparkly vampire is so much more than just the pretty face on your little sister's Teen Bop magazine. As his icy work in Cronenberg's adaption of Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis demonstrated, Pattinson is a talented actor, and more than capable of carrying a film. While the world was distracted by his romantic life, Pattinson was busy sharpening his skills in more respectable films such Little Ashes and Bel Ami. He is currently working on smaller independent projects.
