New Superman Cavill voted world's sexiest man

Robert Pattinson has lost his place as the world's sexiest man, according to a magazine poll.

The former Twilight star (27) has won the accolade for the last four years.

But now the British heartthrob, who split from his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart following her affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, has slipped to second behind the new Superman, Henry Cavill.

Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, who recently broke up with controversial singer Miley Cyrus, is third in Glamour's annual sexiest men poll, voted for by 95,000 people.

Teenage star Justin Bieber (19) is the youngest name on the list and up from 49 last year to 10th place.

One Direction star Harry Styles, slightly older than Bieber, is sixth, just behind British actors Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch in fourth and fifth.

Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom star Idris Elba is a new entry in eighth place, while the top 20 includes Charlie Hunnam, who quit the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, Johnny Depp, Olly Murs and Doctor Who star Matt Smith.
