First Look: Robert Pattison Wears An Alligator On The Cover Of ‘Vanity Fair’


Last week we saw photos of Robert Pattinson from the set of a Vanity Fair photoshoot he did a few weeks ago. Today we get our first look at R. Pattz on the cover of the new issue of VF and all you really need to know about the cover is that he is wearing an alligator around his neck. HE IS WEARING AN ALLIGATOR AROUND HIS NECK!!!

Um … what the EFF is going on here? When we saw those photos from the set last week, I thought the silliest thing about the whole shoot was going to be the hat that Rob stole from Debbie Gibson. Little did I know that there would be an ALLIGATOR thrown into the mix to spice things up. I mean … yeah. I don’t get it. I don’t to get it. But this shizz is funny as hell. I can’t wait to see what the photos inside the mag will look like. If Robert Pattinson is not wrestling with this alligator in one of the photos, I’m gonna be pissed as Hell!

So ………………… thoughts?


  • i like it. it’s out of nowhere and crazy.

    he’s very brave. never in my life i’m gonna put an alligator on my neck, only a snake a la britney and i did that already.

    I bet you Lady GaGa is seething in jealousy right now because she didn’t think of this first.

      haha… awesome! Couldn’t have said it better myself!

    • another HI-five!!

  • Cupcake

    I like it…its different & daring!

  • April

    Oh my! Hahahaha! This is TOO funny. Seriously what the hell? Is this supposed to be promotion for Water for Elephants? Well, if so it’s really bad promotion. I mean isn’t the hat enough? Then they go and throw a live reptile around his neck? That poor guy.

  • torrie

    Love it. Definitely catches your attention, very much what I imagine southern Louisiana to be like. :)

    • gracesmommy

      Some people do like to go after gators and catch them (my husband)!! I think they’re absolutely nuts, but I guess it’s a thrill! lol People are CRAZY down here sometimes!

    • torrie

      HA! My brother is stationed in Morgan City for the Coast Guard and the stories he tells us about folks down there are hilarious. :)

  • amy

    i don’t think anyone else but him could’ve pull this off…he’s hot!

  • TJ

    there is no way that alligator is live unless its given elephant tranquilizers. even then im doubtful.

    • Capt. Crunch Jr.

      It could have just been chilled. They are cold-blooded so when they get cold their bodies slow down. Its like hibernation. So conceivably, yes it could be a real live gator.

    • jess

      FYI reptiles are not “cold blooded” they are ectothermic which means they use outside sources (i.e. sunlight) to control their body temperature

  • Samantha

    maybe they’re trying to throw a little bit of Louisiana in there. kinda looks like he’s in the swamp.

  • Lisa

    Like a boss.

  • Joon

    I just finished the book. They should have photographed him next to an elephant. But no, that wouldn’t be exciting & daring. This cover looks stupid.

  • Chris

    LOL! I love the look on the alligator’s face-so put out!

  • Nicole

    this is a sexy southern photo (:

  • b

    omg trent you made me lol so hard! XD

  • Dot

    I laughed so hard when I saw this cover because immediately I thought of one youtube’s video with an alligator (it’s called forfiter and it’s very popular in my country ;)

  • erin

    Peta is going to be piiiiiiiissed

  • Vicky

    Alligator aside, he looks ridiculously hot in this picture. He’s effortlessly sexy, a lot of other “young” hollywood guys have to put a lot of effort into looking as hot as he does naturally. And having an alligator on his arm is better than Kristen Stewart.

    • gracesmommy

      Could not agree more!

    • Joy

      Holy sh*t Vicky that last part of your comment is f*ckin hilarious! Speak on it girllll…

  • sarah

    he’s so unattractive.

  • Ella

    That really is a terrible hat.

  • Sky

    urm everyone carm down its just a photo – and I think its more creative then what any of you people can come up with so shutup losers

  • Kristine

    I think its kind of hot. :)

    And isn’t he promoting “Water for Elephants”… where he plays a vet… so isn’t it kind of fitting? I think that’s why he’s wearing that hat, too.

    • robin

      agreed! hot and appropriate!
