robert pattinsonStop the presses, people. Robert Pattinson shaved his head. I repeat, Robert Pattinson shaved his head! No more thick Edward Cullen waves. No more short yet still run-your-fingers-through-it-worthy locks.

Nope. Rob's got himself a nice buzz cut going on, all for the sake of his new movie, The Rover, which he's currently filming in Australia. A few grainy photos of Rob and his lack of hair were snapped, and even though it's kind of hard to make him out in the pictures -- he still looks pretty damn good.

And this isn't the first time he's gone for a barely there haircut. This photo of Rob was taken almost exactly a year ago on the red carpet for the premiere of Bel Ami.

Yes, it's a different look than what we're used to. And yes, I'm sure some will miss his thick, gorgeous hair. But I have to say -- I'm digging the buzz cut. There's just something about it that makes him look more mature and more bad ass or something like that. And since The Rover is described as a "futuristic thriller," it's really no surprise that producers would want him to lose the Edward Cullen look.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say I highly doubt I'm the only one who wouldn't mind rubbing that newly shaved head of his. I bet it feels all furry and soft and, well -- it's Robert Pattinson's head and I want to rub it. (Let's leave it at that.)

What do you think of Rob's new 'do?
