Bryce Dallas Howard: Robert Pattinson Chipped His Tooth 'Flossing'

Robert Pattinson must have fingers of steel.

According to his “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” co-star, Bryce Dallas Howard, the British heartthrob chipped a tooth while flossing.

Bryce revealed the information after New York Magazine asked her about the big screen vampire’s personal hygiene as she promoted her new film, “The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond.”

“Actually, he’s incredibly hygienic,” she said. “He told me this story that made me crack up. He was like, ‘Oh, I have to go to the dentist.’ And I was like, ‘Oh no, what happened? Just a check-up?’ And he was like, ‘No, I chipped a tooth.’ And I was like, ‘How?’ And he was like, ‘Flossing.’ Who does that? I don’t even floss. So he’s hygienic. Trust me.”

And Bryce, who recently took over Rachelle Lafevre’s role as the evil vampire Victoria in “Eclipse,” revealed that Robert’s character in the film franchise – Edward Cullen – made her worry about meeting him.

“I actually came out to him that I was totally nervous about [meeting him],” the redhead said. “He’s such a sweet young man, and there’s such a distinctive difference between him and Edward Cullen. He does such a wonderful job embodying that character, and bringing that character to life. But when you meet him, he’s such a down-to-earth, humble person, you feel bad freaking out around him.”
