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!

@guest .. Ok i see your argument there , i respect it i’m really going by what those “suits” said themselves . And talking about millions the same could be said for Hardwicke who was not a well known director and never had a major blockbuster either ., Summit was a small studio i don’t think they had that many millions in the first place , and 37 millions is really nothing these days to get a movie made Hunger Games cost double that amount . everyone just got lucky with this twilight thing . And about the 17 yr old thing ..LOL.. there are quite a few that get these “suits” attention specially if their resume is longer and the movies they made were done with respected directors ..”Fincher , Penn… Scott ..etc.. anyway not all 17 yr olds are idiots some of them do know what they talking about specially if they have been in this “business” at a young age . Dakota Fanning can do it , I am not naive at all i’m just someone who loves movies in general and i’m not 17 … LOL .. thanks for the compliment !

I’m really proud of rob his actually working no stop, I mean he did have a big year gap of just promotions but at least he gets to make all that up this year by acting!

I to be honest was never a Harry potter fan and if the films were ever shown on tv I never really followed the story lines properly, so I might have just missed out on Robs performance! However i personally think that rob is a great actor, his experience in acting is not that much but it improving as the years go by, we have to remember acting was never Robs first choice! Yes bel ami and cosmopolise did not become blockbusters, but that’s just because they were little indie films! They were not fan based franchise! But this has got nothing to do with Robs acting, I’m sure that Rob will be much more recognised in his acting career as the years to come!

Every indie film on your own is better than anything the LA Weinstein, believe me. I hope that Rob or a Kristen will never go in that direction. See what NickF prepares for RP.

Rob will be great in The Rover. He should be the next new James Bond. Few more years, he’ll be perfect for that role. I think he great no matter what he does!

Rob got the twilight job because the producers and the director thought he was right for the role .Do you think the producers will invest millions on an actor they think is not right for the role just because a little known 17 year old actress thinks he should be cast . No body would invest millions on a whim of a 17 year old . Rob had already done HP and was liked and noticed by many in that role. Rob was cast in Twilight because the big wigs thought he was right for the role and Kristen also liked him but do not be naive and think that that he got the role only because of Kristen .

If that’s what you want to believe and it makes you feel better about yourself than good for you , but the reality is right there.. some people just choose to ignore it ! Like you said the “producers ” would not invest millions of dollars , but they already had and if their leading lady could not get along with the actor playing the edward character he wouldn’t be cast . lucky for them they listen and didn’t cast this Fernandez kid he was also Hardwicke favorite , so i believe Stewart and Hardwicke story on how he got the job , no producer or studio head wants their star protagonist to be unhappy and not relate with the second lead actor , the movie would fail . The HP thing was great but everyone was all into Radcliffe and his part was fairly small considering he got that part again from someone else since they cut him out of the Vanity Fair movie in the first place, As a fan i don’t really care how he got here but i will continue to watch his films , so in the end it doesn’t really matter …Do you have any idea how many talented young actors that are around these days ? A lot … I’m a big fan but also a realist… Pattinson is pretty good i like watching him on screen but he is not a god .. i just hope some of you are not disappointed when he doesn’t live up to your” impossibly high expectations “!!

I am a realist too but you seem a naive .Kristen was 17 years old and may be not even under contract at that stage till the leading man was finalized . It is just not possible that people with millions to invest will listen to a 17 year old even they felt it was not right . Kristen may have felt that he was the one but Rob would not have been cast in the role unless the suits believed he could deliver . They were not fools .
Never said Rob was God but it is highly possible he would have got another good break . Not taking away anything from Twilight , getting Twilight was probably the best thing that happened to him .

Give the guy pause, I love Kristen but what was, was. Is how much? Five, six years? . Do not talk about Kristen?? I want to know too much about her, see her, but Rob would not tell us. Hopefully Kristen is okay.
Oh I know, my thoughts always end up with too Kristen.

If rob wanted 10 body guards, he could get them. the man has a lot of money to spend and the guards would be a tax write off. No one knows what their personal preferences are. He made it on his own without Kristen. Kristen didn’t get him the Harry Potter gig. Harry Potter was just a start. If Twilight hadn’t picked him up, someone else would have.

give credit where it is due. Rob himself said: if it wasnt for Catherine and Kristen, he would have given up acting. Even with the episodic role in HP, nobody was sending him scripts up and down and nobody actually picked him for auditions. So, no matter what you say, facts remain. There is a matter of luck and being in the right place, time and with the right people. He is very grateful to both of them. Be a better person, leave whatever issues you have with Kristen aside for a moment and think.

I knew once the rational people left you would have a hate fest free for all The article is about Rob not Kristen but you like bashing Kristen so much more. What are you going to do when he marries her? Huh, kiddies? P in your sandbox? Drum your heels on the floor and hold your breath until you’re blue? Didn’t think pf that did you? Dam. I miss Christopher Dark at least he always had a
rational viewpoint

This is such a vicious cycle ..LOL… everyone has their own ideas on how this actor got his start when in reality no one really knows the truth . But the fact is he was modelling for a while but only in England , he did some obscure indies movies that no one saw . In his own words he said he was ready to quit until he saw Stewart in “Into the wild” , found out she was in it and he really wanted to work with her , so i don’t get why it matters how he got into this “business” .. He himself knows he owes Stewart for all this adulation . she fought for him and he got the job , period you guys need to deal with it and let it go it’s in the past , now it’s up to him to prove to the world that he can do the job and not disappoint . He always made his gratitude clear about Stewart , Hardwicke and Meyers . All of these negative post are just irrelevant !

To guest 1, you are so right, everyone knows that Kristen got him the job to play Edward, gosh that’s a fact!! Now it’s time to see how both of them do on their own “filming”, I’m sure both will be ok, neither one of them has to rush to do a movie, even Kristen said she will be very selective on what she will do next. If they choose to be together so be it, it’s their personal lives, time for all the haters on both sides to move on!! Let them have their fun and happiness, together or separate they deserve it.
P. S. on Robsten Dreams they had some really old videos of Kristen and Rob talking about their first audition, Kristen said he came in with his head down, she couldn’t even see his eyes, after they did their thing, she said to everyone it has to be him!! It even says that Kristen “fought” to get Rob for the part and he even said he owes her for this part as Edward. Rob even says he only decided to do the audition because he wanted to meet Kristen Stewart, she’s fantastic, such a great actress, he was star struck from the get go. Gosh aren’t we over this already??

@tracy123 – To your point, Rob was deep into tax debt. Kristen had to fight because Catherine Hardwicke was concerned about his stability. So there was more than “I want Rob”, Kristen had to really insist and sell him to CH. All the best to Rob in Australia.
