Pattinson: 'I Have No Sense of Personal Hygiene'

January 30, 2009 by dino

Robert Pattinson has revealed the secret to his perfectly-coiffed hair – his Beanie hat and terrible personal hygiene.

The British actor – who plays hunky vampire Edward Cullen in the recent Twilight film and its upcoming sequel New Moon – says he doesn’t spend any time messing about with his lovely locks, because his hair just falls into place.

He tells fan site Robert Pattinson Online, “It’s the funniest thing. I just wear a hat a lot.

“I have so much residue crap in my hair from years and years and years of not washing it and not having any sense of personal hygiene whatsoever.

“Even today, I go into these things where I’m supposed to be this sexy guy or whatever, and I’m literally asking [the studio rep] if I get plumes of dandruff on me, can you just brush it off.”

Asked what he learned by not washing his hair for six weeks, Pattinson said, “That it starts to wash itself. If you don’t wash it for six weeks you won’t have to wash it ever again. Until it gets unbearable.”

    There’s nothing like a frumunda cheese spread across your crackers or a swipe of toejam on your morning hot crossed buns to get a woman’s motor running. Mmmm-nnn, that’s good, baby. And it sounds like Pattison is veritable hygeinic buffet!

    that is just gross, i know guys who have bad hygiene but they at least wash their hair at least once a week. ewww

    I think he’s a very talented actor.
    Who really cares if he doesn’t wash?
    It takes a lot to get to that point, where he is comfortable with himself to admit that.
    I don’t like to shave my legs, who cares! if he weren’t famous, you wouldn’t care.

    He was over-exaggerating these details to the media because he does not want to be looked at as a sex symbol. He is constantly projecting to the media that he is not good looking or sexy in anyway. He has had several interviews since stating he takes a shower every day.

    ewwwwwwwwww that iz soooooo gross but he is still hot!!!!

  • What?

    To Good for you Rob:

    It does matter. What if you’re at a high-end restaurant and this guy’s seated at the next table? Could you eat when you’re nauseated by stench. What about if your fellow classmates all decided to be just like him? It’s bad enough sitting in a classroom after gym! Imagine the stench of a dozen unwashed boys.

    And BTW – are those little spots on his *&%$ from lack of hygeine or from an STD? Are those white specks in his hair really dandruff or head lice?

    I for one no longer find him ‘hot’. A really ‘hot’ guy is one I’d sleep with. And I wouldn’t sleep with a guy who doesn’t bath!

    I wouldn’t sleep with a girl who didn’t know the difference between the noun “bath” and the verb “bathe” :)

    What kind of lame person cares enough to post about a celebrities bathing habits? Also, I’m posting to say that, as a female, I know the difference between “bath” and “bathe” but wouldn’t sleep with any person, guy or girl, who did neither. :)
