With adorning female fans and a reported romance with his co-star Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson's love life is the subject of intense scrutiny.
And now the 23-year-old New Moon star has finally opened up and revealed the real source of his affection.
Sadly for his many hopeful admirers, that turns out to be his dog, Patty.
The Londoner recently revealed in a magazine that he has lost his heart to the West Highland White Terrier.
"The only emotional connection of relevance is with my dog," the Remember Me actor confirmed.
