Oh, how we have missed our guy Robert Pattinson. Seriously, where has this dude BEEN? He was literally everywhere for several years during the height of Twilight fever, and over time he’s sort of petered out of the public eye, which is really a shame, because he’s so gosh darn entertaining.  But Robert reappeared last night at the Go Campaign Gala and not only is he back, but he’s clearly borrowing a page from the Twilight fanfiction-based series, because he’s back and 50 Shades Darker. Well, not fifty. More like two? Yeah, about two.

Behold, Robert Pattinson in his new, vampy dark-haired glory.

He’s kinda the definition of tall, dark, and handsome now with this new hair, and also the navy and black suit he’s wearing. Plus, these pictures encapsulate SO WELL the awkward, shuffling nature that endears Robert Pattinson to us so greatly. We feel you, dude.

He strikes this amazing balance between “the only thing more uncomfortable than looking at these awkward pictures of him is how uncomfortable he is” and “smoldering and kinda hot.” Similarly, we feel torn between kinda into his new dark hair and kinda weird about it. To love Robert Pattinson is to constantly exist in this limbo of “YES” and “oh gosh why.”

Also, he’s clearly chewing gum. WHAT A GUY.

Welcome back, Robert Pattinson. We love you no matter your hair color and questionable red carpet choices.
