MULTIPLE CHOICE: Which Adjective Best Describes Robert Pattinson’s Beard?

Robert Pattinson was spotted recently sporting an epically untamed, Joaquin Phoenix-like beard. We’re not sure of its purpose—the world’s worst disguise (nothing could mask those telltale pretty peepers!), practicing his Brad Pitt impression—but needless to say, we are unimpressed.

Why mar your baby face with a bushy beard, RPattz? Nothing should hide that perfect, strong jawline. It looks out of place on you, too. It’s like the makeup department of your latest film got a little crazy in the trailer one morning and spirit gummed a whole bunch of facial hair on your cheeks.

Luckily, unless Bill Condon is planning a dramatically different version of Edward Cullen for “Breaking Dawn,” the beard will be shaved soon enough—the movie starts shooting in October sometime. But, in the meantime, we think this is a failed experiment.

As style icon Tim Gunn might say, that beard is “a whole lotta look.” That magical forest of dirty hair on top of RPattz’s head does not need a competitor on his face, so we hope he takes a razor—or a weed whacker, whatever works—to the facial hair soon.
