kristen stewart robert pattinson comic con hair Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's Comic Con hair don'ts. It must be loveWay back in 2009 Kristen Stewart showed up at Comic-Con to promote “Twilight: New Moon” with a jet black, ’70s mullet courtesy of playing Joan Jett in “The Runaways” biopic. And even though it was for a role, it still fueled even more vitriol from the K-Stew hater brigade.

Now, two years later, Stewart’s on and off-screen beau, Robert Pattinson, has arrived in San Diego with an equally messed up head of hair. Granted, it’s also for a role, director David Cronenberg‘s “Cosmopolis.” But it’s still pretty messed up.

It’s kind of like the Hollywood equivalent of shaving off your own hair in solidarity when a loved one goes through chemotherapy. Or like when Jared Leto did everything short of carving up his face to distance himself from Jordan Catalano.

Note: “Twilight” co-star Taylor Lautner‘s coif looked just fine both years.

Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
