Edward Cullen may be forever 17 in the Twilight series, but not so for his alterego, Robert Pattinson. He turns 24 today! To celebrate, I'm taking a look back at some of the actor's dreamiest film photos, messy emo hair, included — and Pop's got even more photos to ogle! You're welcome.
There's a silver lining to TV shows going into reruns, and it's more time to watch movies! Happily, today there are a few highly-anticipated flicks, and I've gone through them to tell you What to Netflix. In addition to the three movies mentioned below, you can also catch Robert Pattinson's pre-Twilight dramedy How to Be.
This year's updated version of Star Trek turned the franchise on its head. With hot young things Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto in the beloved roles of Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, the film completely changed the series' history so they could start over with a fresh new story.
It worked like gangbusters: the space-set action movie is clever, entertaining, and tons of fun. It manages to make a sex symbol out of a pointy-eared geek, whom I personally drooled over. The movie manages to pay respect to the original, so those fans are still happy, while pleasing folks who weren't fans of the first (like myself).

Now that Robert Pattinson is an international heartthrob, here comes a movie he starred in pre-Twilight: How To Be. In the dramedy, "A young man having an existential crisis convinces a Canadian self-help guru to come to London and become his personal life coach." Pattinson plays this young-man-in-crisis and he seems to do well with it. One thing's for sure: This character's a pretty far cry from Edward Cullen.
