Robert Pattinson

Sporting a sexy shaved look (that so has us swooning), Robert Pattinson's given every indication he's fully ditched his days as Edward Cullen.

Which is why R.Pattz was the man to watch at the Berlin Film Festival today, for the premiere of his post-Twilight flick Bel Ami, also starring Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, and Kristin Scott Thomas.

So, the first round of critics has officially started to answer the question on everyone's mind: Can the Twilight dude really act?

And what's R.Pattz himself got to say about a Twilight 6 in the making?!

"I'd be curious to see what [Stephenie Meyer] would write, but I just think I'd probably be too old by the time [they did it]," Rob told reporters at the festival on Friday.

Music to our ears! ‘Cause not only are we over a Twilight 6 without Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but we're also excited for two of our fave stars to move on. After all, both have big projects coming out this year, Rob's Bel Ami and Cosmopolis and Kristen's Snow White and the Huntsman, and we want to see what they can do outside of their vampire alter egos.

But that's not all Rob had to say; he also addressed concerns the film will attract a very different audience from Rob's Twilight past, even with R.Pattz himself as the star:

"You get an audience for doing certain jobs, so I think the biggest disservice you can do to your audience is trying to repeat the same thing and to come just to get money or whatever," he explained.

Dare we say, could this be a subtle hint to Stephenie Meyer & Co.? Could Rob possibly be implying a Twilight 6 may not produce Oscar-worthy material?

Worth pondering, definitely (but for no more than 3.2 seconds). As for the initial reviews? Indiewire's already slammed Pattinson's performance, claiming the sexy star "fails to seduce," but we're still waiting for the U.S. release date—the film hit theaters March 2—before we draw any conclusions.

Sorry, but two things: (1) As Water for Elephants proved, Rob can act outside the Twi-franchise and damn well, too! (2) Acting-schmacting, those latest Bel Ami stills had us much too worked up to even think the movie could possibly suck.

And hey, if the film does disappoint, we've still got Cosmopolis to look forward to! After all, director David Cronenburg believes in Rob, so we should too, right?
