The Twilight star was appearing on the famous American chat show, and joked his new style was all down to headlice
R-Patz fans, listen up! Robert Pattinson has graced our screens yet again, appearing on US chat show Ellen with a brand new hairdo.
Rob was sporting a newly shorn short back and sides for the pre-recorded interview, which will be broadcast in America tonight.
But Mr Pattinson insisted his new look wasn’t for latest flick Water For Elephants, which he is just about to start filming.
‘I got a terrible infestation of nits,‘ he joked.
‘I had to shave it all off.’
Oh, R-Patz. Somehow we don’t quite believe you!
Rob also opened up about getting nervous before interviews, admitting he has trouble thinking before he speaks.
‘I just like doing things where you have a little time to think about what you’re saying. I’ve always had a problem actually thinking before I open my mouth,‘ he said.
‘Yeah, being spontaneous or just thinking. I have a problem with thinking.’
‘Just thinking, period?’ Ellen hit back. ‘Thinking in real time,‘ he answered.
