Robert Pattinson's Joyride on Back of Motorcycle Is Totally Adorkable (PHOTO)

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson is currently filming Life in Ontario, Canada, and from the looks of new pics that have leaked from the set, Rob plays quite the dork! His character, Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock, is seen getting on the back of a Triumph motorcycle ridden by the legendary actor James Dean (played by Dane DeHaan). And Rob looks totally flummoxed!

As you can tell by the way he awkwardly tries to hop on the motorcycle with his briefcase in hand, Rob's character isn't much of a cool guy. In real life, of course, Rob is no stranger to a chopper. He once even gave Kristen a motorcycle for her birthday and they took turns riding it.

In Life, Rob's character convinces Dean to take a road trip to his hometown of Fairmont, Indiana so that he can be photographed among the scenes that shaped his character. In real life, Dean loved speed. Loved it too much, I'm afraid, as the talented young actor tragically died while driving his Porsche 550 Spyder on his way to an auto rally. He was only 24.

According to Bike EXIF, Dean rode a 1955 Trophy Triumph. As you can see, this looks just like the bike in the photo. So the movie is keepin' it real, folks!

Maybe Rob's character finally learns to loosen up and enjoy the ride.

Does the movie look cool?

You have it wrong.  It was Taylor who went joy riding with Kristen in New Moon.  Rob never road a cycle in any of those movies.  Geez do your homework!

To the above comment: Rob may not have ridden a motorbike in the movie, but he did pose with Kristen on one in a Harper's Bazaar photoshoot, prior to the filming of Eclipse.

I notice they corrected their statement to Rob driving the cycle he bought Kristen.  That's not what was printed in the beginning.  They said he went joy riding with Kristen in the movie New Moon.
