Showing off his new hairstyle on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show this week, Twilight star Robert Pattinson revealed the reason behind his new trim.
"It's three days old," the 24-year-old says. "I got a terrible infestation of nits and I had to shave it all off."
"No, I'm doing a film," he adds, seriously.
Robert begins filming Water for Elephants opposite Reese Witherspoon in California this week.
"It's about a circus in the 1930s," he says of the film, in which he plays a circus worker who falls in love with an older woman, the wife of an animal trainer.
