Robert Pattinson to sport a short ‘do for “Water for Elephants” role

By Kim Palacios If you’re one of many Robert Pattinson fans who loves the star’s long, unruly locks, you may want to find some old photos to get your fix. He’s cut it shorter than we’ve ever seen it for his “Water for Elephants” role. Recent photographs (released by PopSugar) show Rob’s head shaven in the back and so short on top as not to dip below the line of a baseball cap. Even his conservative Cedric Diggory cut showed a bit more hair than Rob is sporting now.

Make no mistake—no matter what the costume, fans would think Rob is hot; yet few of his upcoming characters’ looks have been able to rival the appeal of Stephenie Meyer’s Edward. It doesn’t hurt that a key attribute of vampires is their devastating beauty, or that one of Edward’s signature characteristics is his unruly bronze-colored hair. It also hasn’t hurt the Twilight franchise that Rob’s real-life mannerism, of running his hands through his hair incessantly, mimics that of the beloved fictional vampire.

This is only the latest in drastic changes Rob’s made to his hair for a role. His “Bel Ami” character, Georges Duroy’s soft , neck-length wave is slicked down in the style of the time. Also changing for Rob from one film to the next is the color of his coif. Whereas his “Bel Ami “hair is practically black, so far for “Water for Elephants” is looking to be a bit dirty blonde.
