This will teach me to take a vacation. Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson cut his hair before the holidays, and I totally missed it. I only found out about it now because I saw this headline on People‘s website: PEOPLE Readers Sound Off on Pattinson’s New Cut. I cannot believe that people actually spent time debating whether he looked hotter before or after…when clearly, the answer is after. Only 56 percent of People readers agree with me. I know that means my side technically won, but it’s just too small a margin of victory for me to be happy
on a slow news day. I am confident that PopWatch readers will right this wrong in our poll below — and come in somewhere around 75 percent in favor of the new look (which, I imagine, has also severely trimmed the number of fans recognizing and attacking him in public — well done, you).
Also, I have a theory that women over the age of 30, like myself, will largely prefer the shorter cut, which makes the 22-year-old Pattinson look older. Am I right?
