Robert Pattinson: Baby Face To Twihard
I don’t care if you’re Team Jacob (Taylor Lautner) or Team Edward (that’s a Twilight reference in case you’ve been living under a rock), there’s no denying that Robert Pattinson has become one of the next major breakout film stars. After sinking his teeth into the role of Edward Cullen, the actor will be starring opposite Reese Witherspoon in the highly anticipated film, Water For Elephants.
But where did this vampire get his start? Modeling! While browsing through one of my favorite blogs, Into The Gloss, I came across an interview with makeup artist Lisa Houghton, who talks about working with the fresh faced teenager. Early in her career she worked with Dazed & Confused, where she met young Pattinson. She said, “We were doing a story on androgyny [pictured] and wanted boys and girls who looked really similar. We had fourteen models one of whom was Robert Pattinson, who was a total unknown at the time. I remember him so clearly, he was just this boy who was a little bit podgy; he had thick bushy eyebrows and quite a red face and cheeks. I remember thinking, ‘how can I take away the color on his cheeks?’”
Well…by the looks of it Pattinson, has grown up from a pint-sized androgynous model to an A-list actor on the cover of Details.
