Robert Pattinson Injured in Tragic Flossing Accident!

Attention, Twi-hards; we have some breaking news! Some tooth-breaking news!

Eclipse star Bryce Dallas Howard—who inherited the role of Victoria from ousted actress Rachelle Lefevre—confirms to New York Magazine that Robert Pattinson’s million-watt smile has been dimmed just a teensy bit, after he he had a dangerous run-in with a piece of dental floss.

In an effort to explain that R-Pattz does not, in fact, have the hygiene habits of a homeless person, Howard revealed,

“He told me this story that made me crack up. He was like, ‘Oh, I have to go to the dentist.’ And I was like, ‘Oh no, what happened? Just a check-up?’ And he was like, ‘No, I chipped a tooth.’ And I was like, ‘How?’ And he was like, ‘Flossing.’ Who does that? I don’t even floss. So he’s hygienic. Trust me.”

Wow; he broke his tooth flossing? Apparently the rumors about British dentistry are true.

Of course, if he was really dedicated to his craft, he would have left the tooth as is. What’s a vampire without a jagged fang?
