Women love Robert Pattinson, Robert Pattinson loves Kristen Stewart. Just what is her secret of attraction? YourTango's Celebrity Love polled a sample of men (married and single, American and English) to pin down the five traits they love most about the Twilight babe for whom legions of young Hollywood males are pining.
She's not glamorous. While Kristen might be considered beautiful by universal standards, she's not hot in the bombshell, high-maintenance, stereotypical Tinseltown way. One guy watched a clip of her, shrugged, and said, "She's real." The lesson? Guys like girls who are genuine. That's What He Said: The Truth About Make-up: A Guy's Take
She's cool. While Kristen has been catching some flack for her zany Joan Jett Runaways look, she's still catching guys' attention. It takes a self-assured woman to rock a bomber and Chuck Taylors, but to still come off as feminine? One guy said, "She has her own style...she can call me daddy."
She's quirky. Kristen is known for her unique mannerisms and pulling the unexpected during audience appearances. Remember the MTV Movie Awards when she dropped the award and turned laughing to the crowd? Adorable. An English member of our poll told us that guys "get bored very easily." A girl like Kristen exhibiting a little eccentricity makes things interesting and keeps a guy curious.
She's smart. In interviews Kristen comes off as articulate and bookish, listening intently to questions and answering thoughtfully with the occasional big (but unpretentious) word thrown in. "She knows what's going on," one poll participant shared, demonstrating our theory that smart girls are hot.
She doesn't need a man. One of the things Robert's been said to like most about Kristen is that she's a great chase. She's rarely given in to his reported advances and refuses to set the record straight on her status with longtime boyfriend Michael Angarano. In a world shaped by Hollywood that praises the perpetually bubbly girl, our guys say the dry, hard-to-read type presents a rare but relished challenge.
