Robert Pattinson once chipped a tooth while flossing


We haven’t had a good Sparkles Pattinson post in a while, so it’s nice to end the year with a funny little story about sparkly hygiene. NY Magazine’s Vulture columnist ran into Bryce Dallas Howard and instead of asking her about her new film, they asked about Robert Pattinson’s hygiene, which she witnessed first-hand on the set of Eclipse. Bryce described an incident in which Sparkles admitted he needed to see a dentist because he chipped a tooth while flossing. She describes him as “hygienic” which runs contrary to mountains of evidence that he probably smells bad.

Sure, he looks foul-smelling, but would you believe Twilight star Robert Pattinson is really “incredibly hygienic”? So hygienic, in fact, that he’s a threat to himself and his teeth? It’s true, claims his Eclipse co-star Bryce Dallas Howard!

When we ran into her at the recent New York premiere of her new movie, the Tennessee Williams–scripted The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond (out today), she told us about her first brush with Rob: “I actually came out to him that I was totally nervous about [meeting him],” said Howard, who will replace Rachelle Lafevre as evil vampire Victoria in next year’s Twilight 3.

“He’s such a sweet young man, and there’s such a distinctive difference between him and Edward Cullen. He does such a wonderful job embodying that character, and bringing that character to life. But when you meet him, he’s such a down-to-earth, humble person, you feel bad freaking out around him.”

“But what does he smell like?” we inquired. “Actually, he’s incredibly hygienic,” Howard insisted. “He told me this story that made me crack up. He was like, ‘Oh, I have to go to the dentist.’ And I was like, ‘Oh no, what happened? Just a check-up?’ And he was like, ‘No, I chipped a tooth.’ And I was like, ‘How?’ And he was like, ‘Flossing.’ Who does that? I don’t even floss. So he’s hygienic. Trust me.”

I floss. I’ve never chipped a tooth while flossing, and I can’t imagine flossing so hard that happens. Personally, I find Bryce’s comment about how she doesn’t floss grosser than her story about Pattinson. In any case, it’s not Pattinson’s teeth that I have a problem with. It’s his gross hair and his dirty clothes. That boy needs some mothering, and I’m not sure Kristen Stewart is up for it. But I am!

In other Pattinson news, he was spotted out and about in London with his sister, and now all the Twihards are all “Bella and Edward didn’t spend Christmas together, SOB!” Photos of the family outing are here, but be forewarned: Sparkles looks like a sketchy kidnapper, and his sister did not get the sparkly genes. And one more thing: in that Moviefone poll (the one that determined that Megan Fox was the worst actress of the year), Robert was voted “the sexiest actor of the year.” Which is sad, really. Because kids today think Sparkles is sexier than Clive Owen. Sob!

Oh, and in case no one has caught this yet, here’s Sparkles in the trailer for his new film Remember Me. It doesn’t look horrible, it just looks pretty cheesy:

    Oh, wow! Exciting! Crazy! WILD!

    Actually, Kaiser, are you sure you should publish this? It’s so hardcore that maybe some people might be offended!

    Now, seriously, the ‘Twilight’ kids are so half-baked oatmeal it’s not even boring. Only the fact that the films are so bad makes them somewhat remotely un-interesting.

    Well, that, and the fact that they can’t act to save their lives.

    Alrighty then

  4. Sumodo says:

    Hold the phone. The only teeth that break during flossing are rotten ones. Game ON!

  5. hannah says:

    not sure how you could break a tooth unless like already said, your tooth is already falling out of your mouth. ick!

  6. sparkly sparkly sparky says:

    Maybe he wasn’t flossing. Perhaps he was giving a BJ to someone with an incredibly hard boner. But who?

  7. Dhavy says:

    his teeth were probably so bad and rotten already (you know the british are infamous for that already) he decided too start flossing and voila! a piece came off

    You should start your own website sparkly squared sparky. Your version is much more interesting.

    Kill him!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. chris says:

    Love all this Sparkly news. I’ve missed reading about him frequently! Unless he flosses with steel nails or something I cannot understand how he could possibly break a tooth.

  11. I Choose Me says:

    I think I read somewhere that you can cut through steel bars with a piece of floss. No 24 in link

    Anywho judging from the pics above his teeth look fine to me. They look nice and white despite his being a smoker.

  12. Bete says:

    If he chipped a tooth while flossing, it means that his teeth are on the terrible side.

  13. Frenchie says:

    Emily de Ravin is doing the lip biting as well in that trailer, must be a reaction to R Patz

  14. Kevin says:

    Choose me, I looked at that link. I doubt you could do over 1/2 of those things with dental floss. I’ve used just about every type of dental floss available to the retail public and keep a couple different kinds around the house. Can’t think of any that are strong enough to do a lot of that stuff. That article is like clicking on some of the MSN links. Most of the ideas are common sense or ridiculous.

  15. Perhaps his teeth are brittle to begin with? Haha

  16. nicole says:

    Googled..”Chipped tooth by flossing” because that is what happened to this past holiday.. Im going to dentist on Monday.

    ANyway.. my point of this comment is to note that your teeth DO NOT need to be gross, rotted, or just bad.. I have good teeth and when I spoke to the dentist he said “youd be suprised how often it can happen.”

    So. Educate yourself before throwing out your rants that no one really cares to hear anyways.

  17. Kevin says:

    Well Nicole, you had me curious so I googled it myself. Almost every story was about Pattinson, but I read 3 that weren’t. The three that I read where the tooth was chipped during flossing had more than just the flossing going on. One was a “rotten” tooth, the other two had loose fillings that were pulled out chipping the tooth in the process. Didn’t see any stories where it only involved a healthy tooth and floss. There may have been one there but I got tired of looking at them.

  18. I Choose Me says:

    @Kevin. Understand your skepticism. I floss often and have sensitive teeth but have never chipped a tooth but given some of the uses for floss that I’d read about I wasn’t going to dismiss the possibility. Could be Pattison is doing it wrong who knows? And I reiterate, just based on the pics above, his teeth look fine to me.

  19. Cindy Kennedy says:

    I do not get his appeal. At all.

  20. nancy says:

    ha! careful with the floss there bud!!1

  21. Macca says:

    (you know the british are infamous for that already)

    And the yanks are known to be fat idiots but hey, why generalise? Oh hang on!

  22. Carpe says:

    He jokes a lot when he’s asked questions, especially personal questions. I’m sure he was just joking about flossing being the reason for chipping a tooth, if his tooth even was actually chipped.

  23. how is somebody with teeth that messed up considerd to be so attractive?
