Twilight’s Robert Pattinson is back to sporting a beard. He was first spotted nurturing an Edwardian look in January a year ago. Now that girlfriend Kristen Stewart is in Wales filming “Snow White and the Huntsman,” he’s opting to let it grow.
Filming “Breaking Dawn” and “Cosmopolis” also required him to be clean shaven. But now that both movies are in post-production, Rob is kicking back and enjoying his time off.
Rob was first spotted with his advancing growth in London in January 2010 as he made his way for his appearance on George Clooney’s Hope For Haiti telethon.

He was spotted in Toronto earlier this week, attending to some post-production work on “Cosmopolis,” but returned to the United States today.
He was spotted in the airport by ever present paparazzi, which is a fact of life for most celebrities, but particularly daunting for Rob, who is not a publicity hound. Other stars don’t envy him.
“I feel really, really, genuinely fortunate not to have to deal with that right now,” Anna Kendrick, told EW magazine, referring to Rob and Kristen.
“It’s like a prison. It’s a really nice prison, but so what? You still can’t leave your home. I feel happy that that’s not my reality right now.”
Rob also seems to have taken a liking to the Baltimore Orioles baseball team.
On more than one occasion, he’s been spotted wearing an Orioles cap, and he seems to have more than one.
If that’s the case, then Rob must have some affinity for the underdog.
The Orioles were once a great franchise and a perennial contender for the American League championship.
But the team has struggled in recent years and play in the powerful American League East, along with the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.
The beard may also help Rob low-key it, now that he is between films. But his distinctive looks are hard to mask, outside of wearing a mask.
