There are few things that can ~truly~ alter a person’s life: moving to a new city, finding love, getting a great job. But when you’re a world-famous movie star with a face that launched a million fangirls, discovering a great moisturizer can be pretty life-changing, too. At least that’s what Robert Pattinson claims in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal. All’s been relatively quiet on the R. Patz front since the release of his full-length Dior Homme ad in September, but the Twilight heartthrob says his beauty regime has come a long way in recent months.
“[Before the Dior Homme campaign], I was a brush-your-teeth-and-have-a-shower kind of guy,” he tells WSJ. “I can’t tell if it’s because of my association with Dior or because I’m older, but I’ve started moisturizing.” Mmmhmm. *Nodding* But seriously, did no one tell you before now that hydrating your face is one of the crucial keys to keeping that baby soft skin tight? You’re on the A-list, for goodness sakes. It’s time to step your game up so you can milk a long, healthy career. Take George Clooney, for example. That man is 52. Do you think he just keeps waking up like that? Doubtful.
Pattinson maintains a strong sense of brand loyalty when it comes to his man-lotion of choice, with Dior’s Dermo System Repairing Moisturizing Emulsion. “It’s been a quite profound change in my life,” he says (albeit somewhat sarcastically, but we’re going to assume he’s just being modest). He also admits to preferring Dior Homme’s shower gel over the actual fragrance (so fresh and so clean, clean); and in terms of style, he sticks with Nudie jeans and “old Hanes” T-shirts. “There are stores that sell these sweat-stained T-shirts for like $80. It’s a weird cult!” Agreed. Why buy one sweat-stained T-shirt for $80 when you can sweat through six for $25 from Target? Sadly, the REAL question here remains unanswered: How does his creepy goatee feel about this new routine?!
