Twilight star Robert Pattinson admits his luck with girls hasn't been too good. The British actor, in Vancouver filming the Twilight sequel New Moon, admitted to Glamour magazine: "I had really bad luck with girls when I was younger, the ones I liked hated me and the ones that liked me were not my type. But that’s something that I still go through. I like girls that I shouldn’t like. But I’m learning, and now I take my time before I let the girl know."Whatev, Rob. You'll be fine, because according to CNN.com, funny guys get the babes (and we think you're pretty funny):
Pattinson says he hasn't got much time for romance these days because of the Vancouver shooting schedule, but accepts the scrutiny he's under because of his Twilight fame. "I knew what I was getting myself into."
According to new research, women rate funny guys as more intelligent than guys who are not so funny. The research was presented this week at the British Psychological Society Annual Conference in Brighton, England.
"Over the course of history, women actively look for signs that their man is intelligent, and I believe the ability to actively judge the situation and pull off a joke and make you laugh is an intelligent feat," said Kristofor McCarty, a researcher at Northumbria University in Newcastle, England, and author of the study, in an e-mail.

P.S. Ok, this is NOT Twilight related at all, but Sasha Baron Cohen is one of the FUNNIEST men ever. This Bruno trailer is *hilarious*, and I have no excuse to put it on my Twilight blog but I am anyway. (NOT-PG 13!! You must enter your birthday to view.) :)
