Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe says girls prefer Rob (Do you agree?)
Twilight star Robert Pattinson is way more attractive to girls than Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. At least that's what Radcliffe, 19, says about his former Harry Potter co-star Rob, 22.

look at something and start to smolder. And I just can’t do that."
Rob also recently commended his former Harry Potter co-stars Daniel, Rupert Grint, 20, and Emma Watson, 18, for having turned out so well-adjusted despite the pressures of fame and overnight stardom.
"The Harry Potter people...are still very, very normal
and sane," says Pattinson. "I think it's because they just ignored the
surrealness of their lives from an outside perspective and live their

Meanwhile, Rob—who has been relaxing in London since Dec. 22—will begin filming New Moon (the sequel to Twilight) in March. The movie will be shot back-to-back with Eclipse (2010), the third installment in the best-selling Twi book series.
