Fans vexed with Twilight actor Robert Pattinson

When Robert Pattinson attended People's Choice Awards in Los Angeles earlier this year, sans his trademark accessory – his world-famous locks – girls were heartbroken. Was this reaction expected? Yes, because when the actor started hitting the red carpet for the Twilight premieres, his hair was constantly in the news. Girls were completely flattered and guys were trying their best to ensure they too sported the sky-high Edward tresses of their own. Since his locks were discussed at length, Robert’s acting skills became less important.
Fresh off the rumor mill now are reports suggesting that the makers of Twilight aren’t interested in the actor’s chopped mane. Since Robert has been asked to re-shoot scenes for his upcoming flick “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”, which is slated for a November release, the costume department have to made a wig for continuity reasons. A source has been quoted as saying, “The wig looks brilliant and nobody will notice.” He further added, “Robert didn’t think cutting off his locks would be such a big deal.”
Reacting to his cropped hair, fans took to Twitter and expressed their irritation. Some of the tweets read, “I want to marry robert pattinson,but not whilst his heads still shaved. He needs to grow his hair back though”, “oh lord, dying at justin biebers hair right now...he looks like robert pattinson and that is not a good thing” and “am i the only one who thinks robert pattinson is really attractive with long hair, or.”
We know, artificial hair will help a great deal in maintaining continuity in his role, but it might not sustain female fans’ interest in Robert!
