Forget New Year's Eve, college graduation, or, heck, even Flag Day.
Today is the most momentous occasion of 2010 for millions of Twilight Saga fans around the world. That's because Robert Pattinson turns 24. Cue screams in 3...2...1...
After laying low for a few months, filming a new movie and remaining out of the spotlight where he's most comfortable, Pattinson will be featured on numerous magazine covers and talk shows over the next few weeks, promoting Eclipse.
It's already started: check out Robert's spread in South Africa's GQ and tune in today to The Oprah Winfrey Show, where he, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will sit down with the host.
We know one thing Stewart did NOT get Pattinson for his birthday: a baby.
As for his adoring fans, Rob isn't the kind of guy that focuses on the material world. He'd probably just accept a hug, or, if you're not in his immediate vicinity, birthday wishes that THG will be sure to pass along.
Send them in now and then ogle this montage...
