Robert Pattinson showed off his growing beard when he grabbed takeout at a restaurant in LA yesterday. The actor looked as if he was dressed for the gym in a Stussy t-shirt and workout shorts. While Rob was alone for his food run, he has been spending quite a bit of time with his friends ever since he spilt from girlfriend Kristen Stewart earlier this year. He caught an Arctic Monkeys concert with a group of female pals earlier this month and has been hanging out with friend Katy Perry. On the romance front, Rob has been most recently linked to Sean Penn and Robin Wright's daughter, Dylan Penn, although the two have not publicly commented on the relationship.
Despite lying low over the past few weeks, Rob saw his name in the news once again when it was announced that Charlie Hunnam had dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey because he reportedly didn't want to become as famous as the Twilight star. Now that the movie is looking for a new Christian Grey, fans may be hoping that Rob will step into the role, and indeed he was reportedly writer E L James's first choice for Christian. However, Robert reportedly "never engaged with producers" when they were first looking to cast Christian, and he is going to be too busy with his three other upcoming film projects to dedicate to the new movie.
