Robert Pattinson wore wig for Twilight

Los Angeles - Robert Pattinson had to wear a wig for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

The 26-year-old actor had to recently film re-shoots for the movie - the last instalment of the vampire blockbusters - and because he'd cut his hair since the original shoot wrapped last year he didn't have the right style to reprise his role as Edward Cullen.

So Robert was presented with a hair piece, which he was less than impressed with.

Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con, he revealed: "We had to do the re-shoots a few weeks ago, and it was the first time I had to wear a wig. I couldn't believe my last two days on Twilight they put this orange wig on my hair."

Robert hated the wig, which he branded "Frankenstein's monster", and he also revealed the toupee was "an amalgamation of six [different] wigs" combined into one.

However, the British heartthrob - who is dating his Twilight Saga co-star Kristen Stewart - could still allow himself a small laugh over his wig woes.

When asked what advice he would give his younger self if he could go back in time, he joked, "Don't succumb to peer pressure and start wearing a wig like everybody else in this cast."

Many of Robert's co-stars, including Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed, all had to wear wigs for their supernatural roles in the franchise.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is due for release on 16 November.

    What's wrong with his hair the way it is? there going to be a sequel? I keep hearing things about a sequel. I can't wait for the last twilight but I'm sad too because I thought it was the last one. Maybe not? From what I heard the soundtrack is supposed to feature Linkinpark, Muse, Paramore, Amber Danz, Carter Burwell, Mutemath, The Collective Soul, Iron and Wine and Perry Farrell. Should be a great film
