Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson has made his name on his good-looks but now the 26-year-old is hoping to be judged on his acting ability rather than his appearance, as he has displayed a gruesome set of rotting teeth on the set of his new film The Rover. There’s no need for Twilight fans to panic though; Rob is only sporting the brown veneers to play the role of a criminal, as he completes filming in Adelaide, Australia.
To completely look the part, the British actor has a shaved head and dirty clothes; he is playing the part of Reynolds and teaming up with Australian Guy Pearce to chase a gang of robbers across the country. Rob was pictured in full costume, relaxing between takes, showing off the crooked, cracked teeth as he chatted to crew members. The photos quickly made their way onto the internet and fans were initially shocked to see Pattinson looking unkempt and dirty – a far cry from his perfectly-chiselled Twilight counterpart, vampire Edward Cullen.
While Rob has been filming in Australia, his on-off girlfriend and fellow Twilight star Kristen Stewart was spotted out and about in Hollywood with friends; according to online sources she is looking forward to his return but has been discouraged from visiting him in case the pair fall out – which could be disastrous for the release of the final Twilight DVD.
