Robert Pattinson wasn't always a handsome, world famous star.
There was a time when he was merely handsome.
We've uncovered shots from the actor's first-ever photo shoot, taken alongside British model Lucy Flower in 2001 for the South China Morning Post newspaper. That's a long way from Entertainment Weekly and People.
Pattinson is seen here in a retro-style Miu Miu bathing suit. Flower described her co-model as not "very comfortable with the outfit," also telling Star magazine:
“Robert was such a shy, reserved little boy back then, I never would have thought he had that kind of superstardom ahead of him."
