About a week before the [article id="1640901"]2010 MTV Movie Awards[/article], [article id="1640907"]Robert Pattinson[/article] — a multiple nominee for his role in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" — got some very stern, profanity-laced advice about his hair from Hollywood "mega mogul"/ dance machine Les Grossman. The producer warned the actor, who was considering a shave and a wash for his usual bed-head, not to do anything different to his shaggy mane.
"Your filthy hair made you a star," [article id="1640403"]Grossman raged at RPattz[/article]. "Your filthy hair made me hundreds of millions of dollars!"
But it seems Pattinson didn't much care for Grossman's two cents, as he showed up Sunday night sporting a clean, freshly cut new 'do. When MTV News caught up with the "Twilight" heartthrob backstage, we had to ask the [article id="1640890"]Movie Award winner[/article] whether he felt any different with his short hair. Specifically, whether he'd lost any superpowers — like the ability to incite uncontrollable screaming or to inspire inexplicable, cross-generational obsession from teens, tweens and housewives — since taking clippers to his famously untamed mane.
"No," Pattinson said, humbly denying any superhero capabilities. "I feel so much better, so much better ... It's like having, I don't know, I feel like I'm wearing two wigs most of the time. So yeah, I feel like agile and stuff. You feel like you've got a six-pack already, as soon as you cut your hair." Maybe he's gearing up to give muscled-up "Twilight" co-star Taylor Lautner some competition in the abs department?
