Robert Pattinson on 'Ellen': His beef with Julia Roberts, a head full of 'nits'



Thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, all of your burning Robert Pattinson questions are answered -- for Wednesday at least. 

Stopping by the "American Idol" judge's daytime chat show, RPattz confirmed that indeed he has shorn his long locks for the film "Water for Elephants." But not before confusing everyone with an attempt at a joke (and we know how that goes).

Rpattz-on-ellen-web"I got a terrible infestation of nits," he told Ellen about his buzzed do. Huh?

"Are they not called 'nits'? Or are they called gnats?" he pondered. "Head lice?"

Um, OK, Rob -- let's just talk about how beautiful you are. Ellen brought up his placement in People magazine's Most Beautiful People issue. More so, she noted he didn't land the first photo in the pictorial, which was awarded to Julia Roberts, who'd been bumped from the cover by some minor news from Sandra Bullock.

"I didn't realize it was a competition," he said. "I thought I tried really hard keeping the pace for the year and Julia Roberts, where did she come from? She came out of nowhere." 

There's always next year, Pattinson. Meanwhile, "Elephants" starts shooting Thursday, according to the actor, with Reese Witherspoon and best supporting actor Oscar winner Christoph Waltz

I think he's adorable, but I wonder if there has ever been someone who puts his foot in his mouth more often than Robert Pattinson. Watch everyone take this totally seriously now.

I am also amazed about Julia Roberts being the most beautiful....please, she has more baggage than most, stole her husband when he was still married (where are all the Jennifer Aniston fans on that?) and Pretty Womnan is one of the lamest movies ever made...leave it to Hollywood to glamorize downtown prostitution...

Give me a break! He was just being genuine and light-hearted. My interpretation was that he knows Julia Roberts is amazing...not that he was surprised at her being "most beautiful". He was attempting to roll with Ellen's questions in a jesting manner. It's a shame that so many writers continue to bash him for being awkward. He's a young adult being thrown in to the lime light for playing an amazing character in a best seller book/turned movie sensation. All the attention that he's receiving would be overwhelming to 99% or more of people. It would be a nice change of pace if someone paid a compliment rather than an insult.

Seriously...he's not very attractive whatsoever...but if you're into the pale, anemic look then he's your man...

He is such a good sport. I just love this guy. Who else would let a perfect stranger pat him down blindfolded. He is always a fun interview because you really never do know what is going to come out of his mouth. He doesn't take himself and his sudden stardom too seriously and that is very appealing. It also doesn't hurt that the guy is drop dead gorgeous.

I LOVE YOU ROBERT !!!!!!!!!! WITH ALL MY HEART
JULIA ROBERTS ?? COME ON PEOPLE !! I THINK NO ONE HAS EVER MENTIONED TAYLOR SWIFT BEFORE ?? I THINK SHE'S BEAUTIFUL SHE SHOULD BE ON THAT LIST

I think with all the screaming and attention he really dosn't have time to think. He was probaly just nervous to be in the interview already let alone with Ellen!!!!!
