Young male Hollywood stars such as Twilight’s Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron and Daniel Radcliffe are giving the females in the business a run for their money.
While the buzz in 2008 about Miley Cyrus was mostly related to her scandalous leaked phone images and ‘forced’ Vanity Fair cover, the boys have kept it clean, or at least owned up to it. Daniel Radcliffe routinely dropped everything on stage in front of hundreds of strangers each time he performed Equus, but that was in the name of art. And at least, when he was photographed nude by Annie Leibovitz for American Vogue, he did not blame her for the pictures.
However, it is Robert Pattinson who is the man of the moment. Ever since the Twilight premier, he’s been a near-constant presence in Yahoo! Buzz’s top 10. He is setting the hearts of millions of teenagers on fire and the blogosphere ablaze. Pattinson dominates this cluster with 11 posts!
Other viral 2008 male stars include Zac Efron who is currently transitioning from being a teenage-sensation into a credible movie career. And who could forget the Jonas Brothers, 2008 was a stellar year for them and they gave back by partnering with Bayer Diabetes Care for a multi-year charity collaboration.
