robert pattinsonHey, weren't we supposed to have seen that rumored Robert Pattinson Dior ad by now? Where is it?!? Just today Dior finally confirmed that Robert Pattinson is officially the face of Dior Homme. Now we're waiting with bated breath for the supposedly "boundary-pushing" ad. I'm starting to suspect Dior is teasing us on purpose just to whip us into a frenzy of anticipation. Going by the trickle of details that have been leaked, it looks like it might be worth the wait.

According to a source who was on the set, Rob relished his role, romping through the sheets with three models. He's shirtless and there's tongue kissing with the models. "According to the people on set, he didn't take much persuading to get into the role. He got stuck right in." Steamy! But wait, aren't we forgetting something? Rob was still in a relationship with Kristen Stewart when he shot that ad.

I know he's an actor, but ... I kind of think maybe at that point he was dying to break free from that relationship and meet a new woman or two, or three. All the more reason for Kristen to just walk away when it all crashed. No point in making it work if Rob was so eager to get out.

Anyway, Rob's union with Kristen is broken, but it sounds like his new big relationship is with Dior. Here's the gushing announcement they sent out today:

The House of Dior is delighted to announce that actor Robert Pattinson is to be the new face of Dior Homme fragrance. He has since proven the scope of his acting talents by choosing films as varied as Remember Me ..., Water for Elephants ... in which he starred alongside Reese Witherspoon, or with his role as Bel-Ami, the famous Maupassant character. Today we are excited to announce that he will join the privileged circle of Dior faces.

Notice how they make no mention of the Twilight saga. My goodness, Dior, are we trying to forget the wildly successful series that launched Rob's career? Oh right, he would have been just as huge without doing those movies ... ha! Whatever. Spin it how you want to, Dior. You know we're still dying to see the ad.

Do you think Rob was ready to move on from Kristen when he filmed the Dior ad?
