Robert Pattinson's New Clean-Cut Look: Love It or Hate It?

Celebrity Juicer/Splash News Online

It looks like Twilight superstar Robert Pattinson has cleaned up his act, putting his sexy tousled tresses on hold in favor of a more polished look. The British hunk was snapped earlier this week on the Los Angeles set of his new film Water for Elephants, sporting a new clean-shaven, slicked-back style. And while it doesn’t look like our favorite Hollywood vampire actually cut his hair, he has definitely combed over his usually unruly tresses. Though he looks as handsome as ever with his new tamed do, we have to admit we miss the heartthrob’s signature bed head.Tell us: What do you think of Robert Pattinson’s new do? Jessie Goldberg

He would look gorgeous in any style.

morgan on

wow i hardly recognized robert he looks fantastic, but of course r-pattz would look gorgeous in any style.

Lori Streily on

I think it makes him look much older and more mature. Maybe that’s what he wants to turn off the teenie boppers?

wow on

Wow. I love it! He looks so handsome and mature:)

crol on

I think it a sharp
h haircut – change is good! Really loved your car by the was, loved the car – sounded very good with that exhaust, maybe now they will layoff of you for a bit – you definately kept your composure! maybe you should try going out in a rubber now & glasses outfit, just trying to lighten up the aggravating you have to endure!

Danielle on

Looks like he finally took a bath! Yay! I still don’t find him sexy. Cute, yes. Sexy-never gonna happen. lol Now that you look clean Rob, find some better people to hang out with and you may just have a REAL acting career after the dumb teen movies! :D

TLC0519 on

aaliyah b on

Melissa on

I love it he looks more mature and sexier.

Kay on

I actually prefer his look in Water For Elephants over any other, though he’s hot no matter what.RAWR!

Val on

I really love the new hair style! Gorgeous!

Abby Legaspi on

The guy can put a decaying octopus on his head and he’d still that face carved by angels.

Tika on

Rob would look great even if he was bald!


This man is gorgeous no matter what the hair style. But what a polished and sophisticated look. Could this man get any more handsome? And how blessed we are to be able to see, and enjoy this up and coming mega star! Magnificent!

Jodi on

For those who remember an old movie starting a character named Samson (SpunkRansom)who had strength in his hair and when he cut it, he lost all his strength, Well, Robert Pattinson who is known for his hair and his hair is still being talk about will never loose strength even with a short hair style. It is not in the hair but the person. He is one of a kind

Zee on

I love it

slim on

Love both looks – I think we see his beautiful face better though with the new look & clean shaven face – he looks truly like a handsome gentleman more mature – but the other look semi shaved longer bed head hair is really sexy on him

Katilia on

The looks says a thousand words…he is very…wow, but I would have to say he looks either upset or the sun is getting to him. I however don’t blame him if he took the camera and shoved it up the photographers…. If I had a camera shoved in my face, snapping picture after picture to get a story…I would go berserk. He still looks…um…nicely put together, though. The five a clock shadow is nice, but this–this is more like it! I agree with the get some better company, people who give the two finger salute and have no pose will only drag you down with them it doesn’t matter the reasoning it is bad taste and character!

Adriana on

I look and look at his picture and I have to admit that he looks plain to me. There is nothing wrong with him, but there is not much to him either. I think some people are confusing an attraction to his movie character and the actor himself, and seeing things in the actor that are not there.

I think his hair looks just fine in this picture. He looks masculine and refined.

annie on

the LION had a haircut? gosh! well anyway, his lamb Bella also changed appearance 180 degrees!Rpatz still looks georgeously SEXY whatever hairstyle!!!!!!!

susan on

It doesn’t matter what Rob does, he is and always will be completely georgous!

-Amy on

-He always looks Gorgeous ! Love him ;))

mortea on

He’s an attractive young man…and as a actor/entertainer/artist, there’s a look you need to keep in order to stay ‘appealing’ to the public eye. (Hence, PR and Image Consultants.) Long or short, scruffy or clean-shaven…go fot it. Whatever works! So to Mr. Pattinson (who I know doesn’t have the time to read these silly comments/articles – but I must say it)…enjoy it, ride it, love it, live it. This is the best time of your life. Much luck!

czarina on

..any look,rob always beautiful..luv it!!!


Just wanted to say,that he can put his shoes under my bed anytime.

Kelly on

Gorgeous and charismatic regardless of style- he seems to have a level head about this business/fame and so hopefully it won’t eat him alive and detroy him like so many young celebrities/actors have allowed to happen to them. He seems very grounded, intelligent, kind- which makes him all the more attractive.

Carolyn on

I love it. This is the best so far except of course for that bed head look this is georgeous.
Great look for a great actor.

Carlie on

I love his new hairstyle! It makes him look more genuine, sweet, like a real hard working decent guy. This is what Edward Cullen probably looked like before he became a vampire…1918 look…and
I love the clothes they put him in for Water for Elephants! Rob would look sexy no matter what you did to him! Period.

jan on

He would look gorgeous in any style.Being different and not conforming to looking like everyone else like Johnny Depp makes him his own man. Why would he want to look like every other Joe out there.

Nicole Schroeder on

I love the new look and also the old look, He just adds new meaning to “BITE ME”

rocknmovies on

He is handsome with short hair and with his usual sex hair. He will probably have it a bit longer for “Breaking Dawn”. Most gorgeous young actor out there at the moment. Now if only the paparazzi could leave him alone and not stalk him for a whole day like they did last Saturday, endangering his life and other drivers’ too.

caroline on

he look sexy, mature, handsome…i love him♥ he looks good in anything

beazley on

He looks handsome, of course, but rather ticked. Can’t blame the guy. He gets NO privacy.

Pat on

I love his hair, anyway he wants to style it. Pat July29th

Stephanie Marie on

He looks sexy and mature…but really…this man would look good bald! I think he is the hottest man alive! (and I am 45 years old!)Simply beautiful!

f fuller on

He looks great either way but I do prefer hair a little longer than in this picture.

nansy on

Man, I wish I would be born 100 years ago! I just love men wearing shoes, white shirts, suits and hats instead of t-shirts, flip-flops, dirty baseball caps and shorts! The hairstyles of past days were also great and manly.
As for Robert, it’s not him – it’s Jacob on the picture. Robert completely internalized Jacob’s image as a very good actor. With this hairstyle he has become an “another pretty face”. His messy unkempt style gave him more trademark (and more freedom to express himself) than this sleek look.

Melanie on

He definitely looks more mature and more handsome. No matter what, he is hot!

makis on

Love his new look. he looks so gorgeous…

Candi on

Rob would look beautifully gorgeous with any style, but I do prefer something a bit more unruly. This style looks “forced” upon him. It just doesn’t seem like a natural look for him. He will always be my number one man. He will always be YUMMY!

Pat on

Rob look’s hot, in any hair style that he appears in. Also in any clothing that he wear’s HOT! HOT! HOT!. He just look’s great all the time.

Debra Groves on

Robert Pattinson looks great any way he wants to wear his hair.
