Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson still rules the vampire world, topping True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård and “New Moon’s Taylor Lautner by a wide margin in an Improper poll.
Skarsgård has been developing a dedicated following just like Rob ever since being cast in 2008 as the sexy vampire Eric Northman in the hit HBO series “True Blood.” But TheImproper wanted to know: Who’s hotter?
The poll also included “New Moon’s” Taylor because of the outstanding job he did in the “Twilight” sequel and the rise of “Team Jacob,” the legion of fans who support the hot young actor.
But when it comes to fans, Rob’s are still the most dedicated and most active. According to preliminary poll results Rob received 72 percent of the votes cast. Alexander received 26 percent of the vote and Taylor came in a distant third with only 2 percent of the vote.
The online poll asked: Which star of a Vampire Show or Movie Star is Hotter?
While the “Twilight” series is probably better known, Skarsgård has been building a growing following on the hit HBO series, and in many ways his career trajectory and popularity is the same as Rob’s.
For one, they both play vampires! But there is no question at the moment that Alexander has not reached Rob’s level of hotness, or at least his fans are not as well organized. Rob is besieged everywhere he goes, and Alexander is seeing some of the same fan enthusiasm.
At 33, however, Alexander is a decade older the Rob and is better prepared mentally to deal with the overwhelming attention of his fans. So far, he says he’s been able to grounded by ignoring the media hype.
“I never read fan sites or blogs,” he says. “I don’t think it’s good for me. If it’s negative I know it will get to me. Or you just read positive things, your ego sort of explodes.”
Like Rob, he also vows not to change: “Nothing would hurt me more than if [my friends] said that I have changed,” he says. “After all, I was over 30 when things started to happen in the States.”
The gorgeous 6′4″ Swede will show off his superfit physique this season as his bad-boy character has more provocative sex scenes with both male and female characters. Rob also has a bad-boy aura that makes him irresistible as Edward Cullen.
Fans are rooting for him to hook up with Sokie in the upcoming season, which Alexander promises will be racier than ever, including ramped up nude scenes. Look out!
“There’s a lot of nudity [in Season 3],” Skarsgård promises. “There’s going to be a lot violence and a lot of sex [for Eric] — with women and men! So it should be interesting.”
Season Three of “True Blood” begins filming later this month and airs on HBO in June 2010. “Twilight” sequel is in theaters now and the next installments “Eclipse,” and “Breaking Dawn” will appear in the summer and fall of 2010.
