Robert Pattinson has a new look!

The Twilight star has cut off his signature mop top for his role in The Rover opposite Guy Pearce.

Pattison was snapped on the dusty set of the flick in a remote area of South Australia wearing a dirty black T-shirt and a pair of khakis.

When he's not working, R.Pattz has been spotted biking around town or hanging at a local pub.

But it's definitely more work than play Down Under.

While Pattinson fans have been hopeful that they'd see their fave star in Los Angeles for the Oscars, I'm told filming will keep him away from this year's festivities.

He made his Academy Awards debut in 2009 when he presented a romance montage with Amanda Seyfried. He didn't attend last year, but he and Kristen Stewart were spotted at some of the Oscar parties around town.
