Why Robert Pattinson Got a Buzz Cut

Robert Pattinson recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for a taping of Ellen (which airs later today–clear your schedules!) and opened up about his “problem with thinking.” Huh?

Robert told Ellen that he likes acting because it allows him to think about what he is saying before he opens up his mouth:

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. […] I have a problem with thinking.

Don’t worry RPattz fans, Robert isn’t saying that he is a dummy, he is just saying that he has a problem with thinking before he speaks, which was evidenced when he talked about his new buzz cut: “I got a terrible infestation of nits and I had to shave it all off.”

(“Nits” is Dreamboat for head lice.)

Ellen immediately chastised Robert for being silly, warning him he was going to start rumors. Rob revealed that the hair cut was actually for a new role.
