We know two things about Robert Pattinson:

  1. He can act.
  2. He can make women everywhere swoon.

We also know the star doesn't have a terrible voice, but does that mean he's prepared to make an album?

Sources tell London's The Sun that none other than Simon Cowell has approched Pattinson about recording a CD. This has even led to a rumored bidding war between companies vying to put out Robert's album.

But an insider claims the actor, who plays piano and guitar, is unsure about delving into another industry:

"Robert is reluctant to be turned into a pop star - and takes his music very seriously. He is a bit wary of signing up with Cowell who is, of course, associated with X Factor and pop."

He's also associated with creating worldwide singing sensations, but it's not as though Robert needs help in that area. He's on the verge of becoming a true movie star.

  • Simon C.

There's no way Simon Cowell has given the thumbs up to a Robert Pattinson album... right?

Even with a cigartte dangling from his lips, most people agreed Robert Pattinson still looked beautiful.

But will that opinion change now that the Twilight Saga star has debuted a new look?

Soon after walking away from his appearance on Friday night's Hope for Haiti telethon, Pattinson was spotted in a full beard. The facial hair is quite a departure from the fresh-faced vampire with whom movie fans have fallen in love.

Take a look at Robert's bushy side below and let us know your take on it:

  • Fully Bearded
  • Very Bushy

Do you like Robert Pattinson with a beard?

Robert Pattinson is a busy man.

When the actor isn't ducking for cover from nosy paparazzi, he's signing on for new movie roles left and right. In March, Remember Me will premiere. In June, Eclipse hits theaters and, in the near future, R. Patt will get started on Breaking Dawn.

Pattinson Versus the Press

What might 2011 hold for the actor? He's reportedly in the running for a major role opposite Oscar winners Sean Penn and Reese Witherspoon.

According to industry newsletter Variety, Pattinson might star in Water for Elephants, a big screen adaption of Sara Gruen's best-selling book.

The story is set during the Great Depression. It focuses on a Cornell University student who ditches school behind after his parents are killed, and joins up with the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

Might Pattinson actually play this key character, who works as vet for the circus? That's the rumor.

As for where you can find Robert in the immediate future: turn on your TV tonight. He's making an appearance on the celebrity-themed Hope for Haiti telethon.

Rumors of a romance between Emilie de Ravin and Robert Pattinson have finally died down.

For awhile, celebrity gossip sites and reporters were buzzing about a possible connection between these two stars as they filmed Remember Me in New York City last year, even though Robert is clearly dating Kristen Stewart.

Now, with the movie set to premiere in March, its cast members are making the media rounds - and de Ravin may have inadvertently sparked new buzz for tabloids to seize on.

In an interview with MTV, the Lost star says she and the Twilight Saga stud got along very well from the outset of shooting:

"I flew to New York to test with Rob and we immediately got along and had instant great chemistry, which is not an easy thing to come by," Emilie said. "Obviously you’re acting, but you want to have that connection with somebody. We had it."

As for her relationship with Pattinson off set, the actress says it was platonic... but still very close:

"It was so great being able to work with someone you immediately get along with and is incredibly talented and is driven to make the film as good as we can. Having someone you can go and talk with about a scene, and it's all very casual and easy, that made filming such a delight."

Before Twilight fans start worrying about what this means, a word of advice: relax. Pattinson and Stewart were recently spotted together and seem very happy.

As if we needed another reason to love Robert Pattinson.

The Twilight Saga star will join a number of other celebrities this Friday as part of Hope for Haiti, the George Clooney-hosted telethon that will air across all major networks and focus on earthquake relief in that troubled nation.

Reports indicate that Robert will be the sole presenter in London, likely introducing performances by Jay-Z and Bono.

Popular Pattinson

Artists performing during the live, two-hour event will include Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Shakira and Bruce Springsteen.

Meanwhile, other A-listers scheuled to present and/or work the phone lines will be: Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt, Anna Kendrick, Sandra Bullock, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper, Renée Zellweger, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Colin Farrell and Jon Hamm.

Stars such as Sanda Bullock, Gisele Bundchen and Brangelina have already donated at least $1 million each to the cause.

Note to THG readers: stay in Friday night. Save money on drinks at the bar and donate to the victims of this earthquake.

On March 12, Robert Pattinson does something even more disturbing than smoking cigarettes in a magazine pictoral.

The actor stars in Remember Me as a character that can walk through the sunlight without glistening and make love to his girlfriend without sucking down her blood.

It's a pretty big change from his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga, and so is this: Pattinson's Tyler snuggles up to someone on camera that is NOT Kristen Stewart. We'll give you a few moments to let that sink in (and to send hate mail to Emilie de Ravin)...

Fortunately, one thing remains the same about Pattinson in Remember Me: his dashing good looks. The movie stills below are proof of that...

The effect Robert Pattinson has on his young fans is clear.

They scream in the streets for him; they camp out for days to attend his movie premieres; they buy posters, shirts and all kinds of apparel with his face on it; they help him sky-rocket to the A-list and be considered for a new franchise lead.

In short, whether Pattinson asks for it or whether he deserves it, this fact is undeniable: he influences million of people.

With that in mind, it's difficult to not be taken aback when looking at a couple outtakes from the actor's photo shoot with Wonderland Magazine. These never made it into the publication, but Pattinson didn't know that would be the case when he stuck a lit cigarette into his mouth and posed for them:

Is Robert well within his rights to smoke? Of course.

But was it really necessary to do so as part of a pictorial that would be viewed around the world? Unless Pattinson was trying to prove that even he's capable of looking ugly, we say no, not at all. It was a dumb decision.

What do you say? Does smoking in such a manner make Pattinson a bad role model?

As Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson tried to resist the urge to bed Bella Swan.

As one of the most sought after young actors in Hollywood, though, will Pattinson be able to resist the calling of another major movie franchise?

Following the news that Spider-Man 4 will reboot the series - doing away with Tobey Maguire as the lead and focusing on Peter Parker as a high school student - one question has been floating around Tinseltown:

Who will step into the costume of this webbed wonder?

Without quoting any sources or providing factual information of any kind, OK! Weekly claims Pattinson is a contender for the iconic role. Could this be true? Sure.

Could it also be another example of this tabloid making up a story about Robert in order to create buzz for itself? Most definitely.

Raw Sex Appeal

Reportedly, Michael Cera and Chace Crawford are also being considered for the role of Peter Parker.

While Pattinson's schedule is jammed with movies - he starts shooting Bel Ami with Uma Thurman in February; and begins production on Breaking Dawn in 2010 - one thing is for sure:

The guy would look good in tights! Do you wanna see Robert as Spider-Man?

There's been a Robsten sighting.

And if pictures speak louder than words, it's more of a confirmation that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are dating than any quote uttered by anyone over the last few months.

After all, why else would the co-stars be seen together over the weekend on the Isle of Wight, an island located in the English Channel about five miles off the south coast of England? There's certainly no New Moon press tour going on at the moment.

But one young fan didn't just spot the rumored couple there; she snapped photos with each gorgeous star! See below:

This girl is excited to be photographed with two of her favorite stars. The Internet community is excited for proof that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are a couple!

While the love birds appear happy (and hooded) in the shots above, they'll soon be saying their goodbyes.

Stewart is scheduled to appear at the Sundance Film Festival for a few days to promote The Runaways; while Pattinson has already started has talk show rounds to make in anticipation of Remember Me.

Fortunately, Twilight Saga fans know they needn't wait long to see this pair together again on screen: Eclipse hits theaters on June 30.

For the last couple weeks, The Hollywood Gossip has looked back at 2009 by naming the finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

In this section, we've been paying tribute to the unique stars that made the past 12 months so memorable for gossip followers across the nation and globe.

Now, following last edition's selection of Miley Cyrus in the #2 spot, we've finally reached the top. Drumroll please...

For 2009, THG's Celebrity of the Year is... the New Moon cast!

Critics might say we're copping out by choosing more than one star for this honor, but come on. Everyone involved with the Twilight Saga deserves recognition for turning a book series into the most popular, buzzed-about film franchise in years.

This doesn't always happen. Remember The Golden Compass? Probably not. Starring Nicole Kidman, it was meant as the first installment in a trilogy based on Philip Pullman's His Dark Material novels. A second movie was never even made.

So, what enabled New Moon to gross over $660 million worldwide? A cast of young, fresh, gorgeous, talented and seemingly grounded individuals. Below, we note each actor's 2009 accomplishments:

Robert Pattinson: Might as well start at the top. The British actor has grown into a global phenomenon. He can't walk away from a film set without being followed by countless paparazzi members, his every interaction with women is chronicled like it's a Presidential summit and he was named one of People's 50 Most Beautiful People of 2009.

Over the course of a few months, Pattinson covered Entertainment Weekly, Harper's Bazaar, OK! Weekly, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone. He's also dating...

Kristen Stewart: She broods, therefore she is. While Stewart had already appeared in a critically-acclaimed movie (Into the Wild) prior to landing the role of Bella Swan, she took on a cult following after her performance in New Moon. Millions of women around the world both love her and hate her for bagging Pattinson, but one thing is clear: they can't take their eyes off her.

Taylor Lautner: He dated Taylor Swift. He rarely wore a shirt. He was actually able to recruit girls away from Team Edward for Team Jacob, based on his bulked-up role in New Moon. Lautner has already signed on for two new movies and appears to have a huge career ahead of him.

Ashley Greene: The actress almost broke the Internet when naked photos of her were leaked online.

Nikki Reed: Probably the least known main star of the franchise. But she's dating Paris Latsis, Paris Hilton's ex, and has been involved in numerous THG Fashion Face-Offs.

Kellan Lutz: Has the best young body in Hollywood and wants to be the next Jason Bourne. Has been involved with 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord and... did we mention his body?

There you have it. It's been an incredible year and we're grateful that so many readers joined us for the ride. We can't think of a better way to end 2009 than with a photo montage that honors these Celebrities of the Year. Click around, enjoy and come back in 2010 for so much more...
