Twilight’s’ Robert Pattinson cuts hair for new role, could he lose his star power in the process?

Twi-hards may consider him a deity, but hopefully Robert Pattinson won’t suffer the same fate as Samson.

The “Twilight” star who is known for his lustrous locks as much as his thirst for blood premiered a shorter ‘do on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” show Wednesday.

Could RPattz suffer the same fate as biblical character Samson, who lost all his power when he chopped off his hair?

Pattinson’s new cut boasts short sides and back, though a bit of length as been maintained on top.

The 24-year-old star quipped that he was forced to chop off his hair over a medical problem.

“It’s three days old,” he told the host. “I got a terrible infestation of nits and had to shave it all off.”

“No you did not,” Ellen replied. “Don’t start that rumor.”

It turns out Pattinson cut off his brunette mop for his new role, a Depression-era drama called “Water for Elephants,” which co-stars Reese Witherspoon.

And Pattinson isn’t the only star to visit the hairdresser this week. Michelle Williams premiered a pixie ‘do at Cannes this week while Janet Jackson has been photographed in London with an even more severe closely cropped cut.

  1. Honestly, I already miss his lovely luscious locks. I think I need some time for the new do' to gro on me, but it's Rob so I know it will ;) Yowza!!!!

  2. He has cut it all off before. Remember December of 08?? Though he went into hiding for like a few months and when he came back it had grown back lol. I don't think it will effect his work...his hair isn't what makes him so talented.

  3. I completely agree with you girls.... gossip sites will always talk.. i will admit that i was devastated when i first saw it but i love it now:) can we say #TeamJacob now.. lol
