Robert Pattinson: First Hot Pictures Shooting ‘The Rover’ In Australia

The first shots of Rob filming ‘The Rover’ show him getting down & dirty, dusting up that pretty face while shooting a fight scene. Not to mention a new haircut! Click to see the pics of Rob’s new buzzed do.

The Rover film crew set up on the side of a desolate, Down Under road Feb. 4; and the film’s star, Robert Pattinson, roughed it up for a fight sequence with another actor — but it looks like Rob lost the fight!

Robert Pattinson’s Hot Fight Scene

The scene featured R-Patz stumbling out of a dirty pickup truck and subsequently getting his butt kicked by the driver. Not many guys can look good while getting knocked to the ground — but Robert Pattinson is definitely one of them!

The pictures show a brand new Rob — the signature shaggy hairdo is shaved down to a buzz cut and he looks scruffier than usual.

The Rover is a Western type film set in the near-future in the Aussie desert. It looks like Rob is morphing from a vampire into a rough and tumble, much better-looking John Wayne.

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart’s Trial Separation

Rob’s new look also signifies a new era in his personal life. As he left for Australia on Jan. 18, Rob broke the news to long-time (and once cheating) girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, that he wanted a “trial separation” while filming the movie. Kristen was reportedly shocked — “Of course Kristen is bummed that Rob wants a trial separation,” a friend of Kristen’s said, “She honestly didn’t see that coming.”

K-Stew is pining for her beau, but she’s begrudgingly giving him the space he wants and crossing her fingers that when The Rover’s over he’ll be ready to come back to her. “She’s willing to do whatever makes Rob happy. She’s determined to make it work no matter it takes,” the same friend says.

Well it seems like he’s having a good time getting beat up, so maybe he WILL get back together with Kristen after all!
