The 25-year-old has stripped off for his role as millionaire Eric Parker in Cosmopolis.

With only a laser light on him Robert is seen with a bemused, but calm look on his face as he stares up at the woman.

the peaceful and loving Edward Cullen of the Twilight films, and fans
will no doubt relish the change.
