Robert Pattinson: Sporting Pre-Oscar Shaggy Look

By: larissa / February 20, 2009

For those wondering if Robert Pattinson is going back to a clean cut version of himself for the Oscars, his appearance last night at the on the patio of the Sunset Tower hotel proves that you are half-right.

The hair’s getting there, but the emergence of the beard has got to stop!

Pattinson took his second night out in Los Angeles easy with a relaxing meal amongst friends at the star-studded dining spot. He is sporting a cleaner hair cut than normal for the rugged star, a fellow diner tells Celebuzz. But his facial hair is starting to move from jet-lag-growth to beard. “He’s going from Twilight to well beyond 5 o’clock shadow,” says the diner.

Someone get that man a razor before Sunday’s Oscar red carpet.

Pattinson was all kinds of relaxed in the outdoor dining experience (as stars such as Pierce Brosnan, Martin Short and Molly Sims dined inside at the Tower Bar). “He seemed to enjoy the beard, pulling at it often as he sipped beer from the bottle and chatted with his friends,” our diner says.

The t-shirt and jeans wearing star spent much of the dinner in laid-back conversation with a mid-riff baring brunette. “She was leaning in a lot, and he was all laid back and enjoying the conversation with a half-smile and a half-arched eyebrow.”

The party broke up at 11 p.m. and the two went their separate ways.
