We haven’t had a good Sparkles Pattinson post in a while, so it’s nice to end the year with a funny little story about sparkly hygiene. NY Magazine’s Vulture columnist ran into Bryce Dallas Howard and instead of asking her about her new film, they asked about Robert Pattinson’s hygiene, which she witnessed first-hand on the set of Eclipse. Bryce described an incident in which Sparkles admitted he needed to see a dentist because he chipped a tooth while flossing. She describes him as “hygienic” which runs contrary to mountains of evidence that he probably smells bad.
Sure, he looks foul-smelling, but would you believe Twilight star Robert Pattinson is really “incredibly hygienic”? So hygienic, in fact, that he’s a threat to himself and his teeth? It’s true, claims his Eclipse co-star Bryce Dallas Howard!
When we ran into her at the recent New York premiere of her new movie, the Tennessee Williams–scripted The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond (out today), she told us about her first brush with Rob: “I actually came out to him that I was totally nervous about [meeting him],” said Howard, who will replace Rachelle Lafevre as evil vampire Victoria in next year’s Twilight 3.
“He’s such a sweet young man, and there’s such a distinctive difference between him and Edward Cullen. He does such a wonderful job embodying that character, and bringing that character to life. But when you meet him, he’s such a down-to-earth, humble person, you feel bad freaking out around him.”
“But what does he smell like?” we inquired. “Actually, he’s incredibly hygienic,” Howard insisted. “He told me this story that made me crack up. He was like, ‘Oh, I have to go to the dentist.’ And I was like, ‘Oh no, what happened? Just a check-up?’ And he was like, ‘No, I chipped a tooth.’ And I was like, ‘How?’ And he was like, ‘Flossing.’ Who does that? I don’t even floss. So he’s hygienic. Trust me.”

I floss. I’ve never chipped a tooth while flossing, and I can’t imagine flossing so hard that happens. Personally, I find Bryce’s comment about how she doesn’t floss grosser than her story about Pattinson. In any case, it’s not Pattinson’s teeth that I have a problem with. It’s his gross hair and his dirty clothes. That boy needs some mothering, and I’m not sure Kristen Stewart is up for it. But I am!
In other Pattinson news, he was spotted out and about in London with his sister, and now all the Twihards are all “Bella and Edward didn’t spend Christmas together, SOB!” Photos of the family outing are here, but be forewarned: Sparkles looks like a sketchy kidnapper, and his sister did not get the sparkly genes. And one more thing: in that Moviefone poll (the one that determined that Megan Fox was the worst actress of the year), Robert was voted “the sexiest actor of the year.” Which is sad, really. Because kids today think Sparkles is sexier than Clive Owen. Sob!
Oh, and in case no one has caught this yet, here’s Sparkles in the trailer for his new film Remember Me. It doesn’t look horrible, it just looks pretty cheesy:
