An odd photo of Robert Pattinson has just surfaced on many of the fan sites devoted to the Cosmopolis star. In the truly weird, funny pic, the Twilight heart-throb is holding hands with a local celebrity. Not a famous super star like RPattz and his girlfriend Kristen Stewart. The brunette in the photo is only a London radio personality, and definitely not Kristen Stewart. In fact, except for their dark brown hair, the two have absolutely nothing in common. Unlike the Snow White and the Huntsman star, this brunette isn't even a woman. He's a guy.
In the pic, the two obvious BFFs are standing in front of a wall bearing the Radio XGM logo. Rob's brunette friend is the host of a show on the station. The two men are holding hands and staring at the camera. The radio host who's clad in a plaid button down shirt, black tee-shirt, khakis, and black horn rimmed glasses, looks shy, almost embarrassed. Rob, on the other hand, is gazing confidently into the camera with a calm, quiet smile. He's sporting a light-colored button down, black tee, black jacket, and jeans topped off by his ubiquitous baseball cap. And their hand holding is hardly causal or tenuous. They're clasping each others' hands firmly, confidently, and seemingly with a fair amount of emotion.
"They look like.. an old couple," mused one of the fan sites.
'Am i the only one wondering why are they [are] holding hands?" commented someone on another site, adding: "I'm so jealous of that guy right now"
So what does all this mean? Is Robert Pattinson trying in his own inimitable way to announce something to the world? Or is he channelling that other Ã¼ber famous teen idol, Justin Bieber, and punking everyone in it?
