Robert Pattinson has built much of his reputation in Hollywood on the reputation of his lustrous locks, but he showed up tonight at The People’s Choice with a haircut so close cropped that he was practically bald. It’s a risky thing for a male hearthrob to treat his hair so brutally. And fans have been known to revolt for lesser sins. But at The People’s Choice Awards, RPatt did not seem to have that problem.
When he took the stage to accept the award for favorite dramatic movie for Water For Elephants, the fans were screaming so loudly that he could barely ge this acceptance speech out. They screamed when he got on stage and just kept going until he was done with whatever he was saying (we couldn’t actually hear it).
The verdict? English adorableness trumps any hair trends. And it doesn’t hurt that he probably made agreeable small talk with the adorably aged Betty White in the front row all night.
