London, (ANI): Twilight star Robert Pattinson"s wax statue
has been identified as the most pecked figure by visitors at Madame
Tussauds. The actor beat Harry Potter star Daniel
Radcliffe, who is placed second in the list.
On the other hand, Dame Helen Mirren was named the top female
star to be kissed over the past year. Staff at Tussauds compiled
the list from their own observations as fans pounced on the models
and also from maintenance records - to see which figures needed to
be cleaned most often. Guests often plant a peck on the Twilight
actor"s cheeks as they pose for photos, said the staff.
"A lot of puckering up goes on here at Madame Tussauds London
and our studios team are on a constant clean-up mission where some
celebrities are concerned," the Mirror quoted spokeswoman Liz
Edwards as saying.
"Robert Pattinson has been an instant hit with the ladies since
he joined the attraction in March and Daniel Radcliffe has
attracted more and more attention from female fans as Harry
Potter fever starts to build up in the run-up to the final
film release. Dame Helen is a hit with men and women alike, and
although she doesn't get the lipstick marks Daniel and Robert do,
guests go out of their way to plant a peck on her cheek," she
