Robert Pattinson Haircut

Not since Justin Timberlake’s curls has a male star’s hair caused such a stir. Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson, who came onto the scene with his trademark untamed tresses, gave fans a rise when he chopped his hair in 2008. Since then, the brooding actor’s lush locks have been the topic of much scrutiny: a tamed look drew criticism, a cleaned-up style was dubbed debonair and a red hue had admirers divided. Now, the Water for Elephants star has done it again, changing his hairstyle into something that might be dubbed a semi-buzz. At Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday, the actor turned up (with his costars) to talk Breaking Dawn Part 1 sporting a style that was half-cropped, half-wild. But fear not: the cut appears to be for his role in the upcoming thriller Cosmopolis, a movie centered on a young man who makes an odyssey across Manhattan in order to get a haircut. However, just like his new look, we’re feeling a little divided: Do we like it or not? Tell us: What do you think of Pattinson’s new look?

Ewwwww, I really hope that’s for his movie! That hair looks absolutely awful on him…looks like he was in the hair salon and forgot he had to go to Comic Con, so he only got half of it cut.

It looks like he woke up in a Britney Spear’s pysch ward faze, but then snapped out of it a few strokes from the clippers too late…
