What would Edward Cullen say?

Typically wildly coiffed, Robert Pattinson was spotted on the set of his upcoming film "Water For Elephants" on Monday donning much a shorter and cleaner hair cut to portray the character of Jacob Jankowski alongside leading lady Reese Witherspoon.

The 24-year-old actor looked positively preppy in downtown Los Angeles to work on some re-shoots for the movie, dressed in a crisp white shirt and tweed slacks to match his freshly shorn hair.

We wonder if Pattinson, who is notorious for nervously running his hands through his formerly lengthier locks, had a tough time keeping his digits out of this perfectly styled 'do. The affable Brit has the potential to be a key hair stylist's worst nightmare, albeit a handsome one.

Fans who simply cannot live in a world without their heartthrob's signature thicker, messier style should fear not -- Pattinson will be returning to all of his Edward Cullen glory when he reconvenes with his "Twilight" cohorts on the final installment of the vampire series, Breaking Dawn, which will be shot as not one, but two, movies.
