Rob was considered for People's cover and takes the honors for "Hair"

People editor Julie Jordan said the magazine’s editors considered 2009’s hunk-of-the-moment, “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, for the award, but decided instead to go with the 46-year-old unmarried father of two for longevity that has withstood the test of time.

"Johnny Depp has magical powers. He's unlike anyone else," actress Isla Fisher tells People in the special issue. "He's funny, generous and clever. It's just a shame he's so hard on the eyes."

The actor, who was born in Owensboro, Ken., and had a difficult childhood during which his family moved many times, has also proved his versatility. Since first hitting the public radar in the cop show “21 Jump Street” in 1987, he has since created a succession of memorable roles, from Edward Scissorhands to Gilbert Grape to Willy Wonka to Raoul Duke, a.k.a. Hunter S. Thompson, to Sweeney Todd to Capt. Jack Sparrow.

Other categories
This year’s issue is broken into other playful categories. And while it is dominated, as usual, by Hollywood hunks, it also includes the heads of state of the United States, France and Russia — Barack Obama, Nicolas Sarkozy and Vladimir Putin. They earned mention in the “Sexy Shirtless” category, along with such show-biz entries as Zac Efron.

Another section of the issue is called “Vampire Awards,” and those are broken down into subcategories such as “Hair,” where Robert Pattinson takes the honors. The magazine also put actor Jerry O’Connell in a Speedo swimsuit, then photographed him going through his day’s activities — everything from perusing a book in the library to ordering meat in a deli — calling it “My Life in a Speedo.”

This is why I don't buy People magazine, idiots! Rob is more than his hair, and just lumping him in with 'Vampires to Die For' is stupid. Who decides this? They should take a vote!

Biggest Marketing Mistake of 2009! Rob is the most magical person EVER! Who else could get women ranging from half his age to twice his age swooning over him? I thought you wanted to sell magazines. Well, if you were shooting to be "different" from all the other magazines with Rob on the cover this month, you succeeded in shooting yourself in the foot! You went from selling the most magazines in your history to just a regular week. Too Bad!
