Off with his locks! Twilight star Robert Pattinson shocked fans as he emerged with a new patchy haircut in Toronto, Canada, this morning
As Edward Cullen on Twilight he has always been seen with a messy, long and thick head of hair.
But many fans may be shocked to see what Robert Pattinson has done to his locks lately.
The 25-year-old Twilight actor emerged with a new short haircut in Toronto, Canada, this morning.
But the new style leaves nothing to be desired.
The sheared look has left Robert with patchy bald spots all over his famous head.
The effect appears as though he either attempted the cut on a night out with the boys or god forbid, balding at a very young age.
But fans can find solace that the cut is all in the name of art.

In his new movie Cosopolis, Robert plays billionaire Eric Packer, who spends the entire film attempting to cross Manhattan in his luxurious limo in order to get a haircut.
Over the course of the last few weeks, the actor has been spotted with many different styles, including a very uncharacteristic slicked down look, which he starts out with in the new flick.
And just last week he was seen with a preppy crew cut, saturated with cream after copping a pie in the face in another scene.
Confused? Robert ran his fingers through his new do' as he was overwhelmed by fans

Last night, the actor showed off his new do' in a pair of jeans and a black printed t-shirt.
He looked bemused and bleary eyed as he left the set, attributed to a very late night of shooting.
After wrapping up, Robert emerged at 5.00am to a throng of fans, graciously signing autographs to close to 70 fans for over ten minutes.

And while he was clearly exhausted, he was still able to squeeze in some time for his girlfriend Kristen Stewart.
The actress paid her beau an onset visit in the dead of the night.
The 21-year-old arrived in a SUV and was met by Robert's bodyguard, escorting her straight to her boyfriend's trailer, along with his dog Bear, whom she brought along for a visit.
The many styles of Rob: The actor's hairstyle has changed numerous times in the film
Robert has been the subject of huge publicity for his original larger than life bouffant hair style, once admitting that he rarely washed it.
When asked if it was true that he once said he hadn't washed his hair for six weeks, the actor once told Extra: 'Probably. I don't know. I don't really see the point in washing your hair.'
The star also revealed he doesn't keep his apartment very tidy either.
'If you don't care if your hair's clean or not then why would you wash it?' he added. 'It's like, I don't clean my apartment because I don't care.
