Hottest vampires in Hollywood

Nov 15, 2011 at 8:00 a.m. ET

Is there anything hotter than a sexy vampire? We can't really think of anything! You could say we've been bitten by the Hollywood vampire thing going on and we've lusting after these hunky bloodsuckers. With the release of the new Twilight film, Breaking Dawn, this Friday, we couldn't think of a better time to profess our love for these vamps.

Rob Pattinson
Robert Pattinson

Born: May 13, 1986
Hometown: London, England
Height: 6' 1"

Ever since he first stole our hearts in the first Twilight film, Robert Pattinson has been in our top five of Hollywood hotties we'd love to date. His hair, those eyes, that accent… we like it all, ladies. We love the fact that R-Patz hasn't stuck himself in the Twilight vampire bubble, too (although we do quite enjoy watching his immortal character, Edward Cullen!). This hottie has gone on to star in several hit side projects like the acclaimed Water for Elephants (alongside Reese Witherspoon, no less) and Remember Me.

Relationship status:

Pattinson and his onscreen leading lady, Kristen Stewart, have been trying to deny their off-screen chemistry, but there's really no point because we all know they've been hooking up for years.

Paul Wesley
Paul Wesley

Born: July 23, 1982
Hometown: New Brunswick, New Jersey
Height: 5' 10"

As sexy Stefan Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley fulfills our vampire fix every Thursday night on the CW. His brooding stare and that gorgeous hair keep us coming back for more every single week, ladies. We love how Wesley isn't afraid to show his sensitive side with leading lady Nina Dobrev but also dig seeing his inner vampire come out, as it has been this season.

Relationship status:

Sorry ladies, this sexy vamp is taken! Wesley married his longtime girlfriend, Pretty Little Liars actress Torrey DeVitto in April 2011. The two met after starring in Killer Movie together and have flown somewhat under the radar ever since.

Ian Somerhalder
Ian Somerhalder

Born: Dec. 8, 1978
Hometown: Covington, Louisiana
Height: 5' 9 1/2"

If you don't fall under Ian Somerhalder's vamp-like spell after taking one look at those mesmerizing blue eyes, there's something wrong with you. Somerhalder perfectly combines sex appeal, edge and sensitivity as bad guy vampire Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries. Although his character doesn't exactly have the best moral compass, we still love him and know that when push comes to shove, Damon really is a softy at heart who'd do anything for the ones he loves. Aww….

Relationship status:

Looks like life imitates art for this hunky vamp. Somerhalder has been rumored to be dating Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev for quite some time now and we can't help but root for this couple. After all, they've never truly had a shot on the show and they do have such undeniable chemistry!

Alexander Skarsgard
Alexander Skarsgard

Born: Aug. 25, 1976
Hometown: Stockholm, Sweden
Height: 6' 4"

This sexy Swede steals the show every week on HBO's True Blood as bad boy Eric Northman. It's kind of hard not to fall in love with that blond hair, those deep blue/green eyes, that voice… we want it all. We fell even deeper for Skarsgard this season when he finally revealed his sensitive side on True Blood, and even though he's back to his big bad self, we still carry a torch for him!

Relationship status:

After almost two years of dating, Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth called it quits last summer. As far as we know, this sexy vamp is single and ready to mingle, and we like it that way.
