"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.”
