Robert Pattinson stepped out in London this morning ahead of his appearance on George Clooney's Hope for Haiti telethon, evidently following in the footsteps of many other actors with a serious new beard! It's a rare public outing for Robert, who has been laying very low since his holiday vacation on the Isle of Wight with Kristen Stewart and gearing up to film his ladies' man role in Bel Ami. His cameo on this evening's fundraiser will be alongside other celebs like Rihanna and Jay-Z, who are taking the stage together to perform a special new song — stay tuned for more updates as the big event unfolds!

UPDATE: Buck up, “Twilight” fans — when the “Hope for Haiti” relief telethon airs tonight, Robert Pattinson will not be manning the phones, despite reports to the contrary. Rather, he’ll support the effort with an appearance out of London, a spokesman for MTV confirms.
Robert was spotted today on his way to the taping — rocking one of those oh-so-popular beards we’ve been seeing so much of lately.
Taylor Lautner, however, will be part of the Los Angeles-based phone crew, which includes more than 100 other celebrity names. Kristen was committed to Sundance where she is promoting The Runaways and Welcome To The Rileys. source
