After some did-he-or-didn’t-he speculation about his recent buzz cut, the formerly long-locked Robert Pattinson ditched the baseball cap that he was hiding under last weekend to reveal a new, noticeably shorter hairstyle on the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday. The reason behind the sudden change? “Head lice,” he joked. “It’s three days old,” the 24-year-old Twilight hottie kidded to DeGeneres, saying “I got a terrible infestation of nits and I had to shave it all off.” Warned Ellen: “Don’t start that rumor.” Relax, Twihards: The real explanation behind the new close-crop is his new movie with Reese Witherspoon, Water For Elephants, which the actor is set to start filming in Los Angeles this Thursday. –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley

SO DID HE HAVE HEAD LICE OR NOT?HE’S STILL HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, he doesn’t have head lice. He is filming a 1930s circus movie and his haircut is for that role. Short hair, long hair, his smile and mischievious eyes are still the same. Hot! Love the guy.


Well, I AM IN LOVE WITH ROBERT……haircut or not. It should all be about the person he is, not the roles he portray’s.

So what, he got a haircut for a movie. I wouldn’t care if he was bald I wouldn’t kick that babydoll out of my bed. I don’t like him just because of
his hair, that’s ridiculous, I find him very charming. Naturally the media is going to pick him
to death over every little thing he does. I think
he could really go far if he was just left alone.
