Pattinson Cleans Up Nicely, Predicts Disaster

Edward Cullen is back.

Robert Pattinson was a clean cut version of his recent self on the Oscar red carpet with a Cullen-esque haircut and only the smallest traces of facial hair.

The Twilight star has been seen about Los Angeles over the past week with alarmingly increasing levels of facial hair as the Oscars approached. But it was long gone as he hit the carpet.

Pattinson predicted a disaster during his brief Oscar presenting role. “I did a rehearsal and messed up catastrophically so I’m probably going to do it again,” he told E!’s Ryan Seacrest. “I’m going to be the big let down for the show.”

Pattinson said he was surprised to even be asked for the Oscar job. “I thought it was a joke. I seem to be here now. I guess it’s no longer a joke.”

“I still cannot get over it. I was laughing the whole time in the car coming here. It’s completely ridiculous.”
