FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: It’s taken a little over a year for Robert Pattinson to be considered a staple heartthrob worldwide. With the crazy success of the “Twilight” book series came the crazy success of the first film, catapulting its stars into instant, albeit unbidden, fame. Though he’s on the road now promoting “New Moon” (out this week!), we figured we would take some time to look at the evolution of Robert Pattinson.

Born on May 13, 1986 in London, England, the hunk started out his career rather appropriately by following in his mother’s modeling footsteps at age 12. Ironically, he would later come out and explain that the reason this stint in the fashion world lasted only four years was because he was tall and feminine and it was at a time where “the androgynous look was cool.” Once he started looking more like masculine man we have grown to know and love, the job pool dried up.
