Don’t worry, Robert Pattinson. You’re royal in our hearts! The Water for Elephants star appeared on The Graham Norton Show with Reese Witherspoon recently and revealed he used to trick people in L.A. into believe he was part of the royal family!
Rob and Reese sat down on the BBC’s The Graham Norton Show last week and discussed the royal wedding.
“When I first came to L.A., it was very easy to convince people I was a member of the royal family. I hadn’t worked for three years — I was unemployed in London — and when people asked what I’d been doing, I told people I went to RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art] with Prince William,” Rob revealed.
And it worked!
“People would think, ‘You’re English, I completely believe you!'”
And Rob also revealed that he didn’t always have his famous hair — it used to be pulled back in a ponytail!
“I think [my sisters] used to give me a ponytail a lot or I used to give myself one. You’d be surprised, my sisters were very abusive,” he said (via Just Jared Jr.).
Reese asked exactly how long his hair was then and Rob replied, “It wasn’t very long. I had one of those rat tails. I used Vaseline on it.”
