Robert Pattinson Sports Scruffy New Look

22 January 2010 6:27 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Robert Pattinson has followed the footstep of Brad Pitt in growing his beard. Having been laying low ever since news of him and rumored girlfriend Kristen Stewart spotted spending New Year's Eve together, the 23-year-old actor was snapped stepping out in London on Friday evening, January 22 with the new facial hair.

While there is yet comment from the "Twilight Saga" star on his new scruffy look, there could be a chance that he grew the beard to look manlier. In 2009, he admitted his lady-like look to Daily Mirror saying, "I always looked like a girl up until a few years ago, and because I never did any sports or anything I was always kind of gangly." Photos of him with the beard can be seen via Radar Online.

Robert Pattinson is expected to make an appearance at George Clooney's "Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief »
