Our super sleuth reader says Rob was out in London with actress Shannon Woodward!

When we saw this photo of Robert Pattinson in London with a girl identified as Kristen Stewart, we had to do a double take. Though the photo is fuzzy, it sure doesn’t look like the K-Stew we’re used to seeing around. And thanks to an astute reader, we just might have cracked the case!

Our reader has identified the girl as 25-year-old actress Shannon Woodward, who is actually a dead ringer for K-Stew! Both ladies have fair skin, thick brown locks and a serious love of dressing down. And just look at the above photo — when they’re all dolled up, these two could totally pass for sisters.

If you’ve never heard of Shannon before, you clearly aren’t watching enough TV. Along with stints on Boston Public and Grounded for Life, Shannon was a series regular on the short-lived FX drama The Riches. And here’s a fun fact about Shannon: She got her start on TV as a recurring character on Melissa Joan Hart‘s Nickelodeon series Clarissa Explains It All in 1991. (We loved that show!)

UPDATE: The girl with Rob in the photo has been ID’d as Shannon Woodward, but before you start to worry about potential trouble in Rob & Kristen’s relationship, just know that Shannon is actually dating one of Rob’s very close friends, Andrew Garfield! Mystery solved, indeed!
