Following his rumored relationship with “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart and his dreamy coif, the most talked about Robert Pattinson tidbit is his alleged stench – but according to his co-star, Peter Facinelli, it’s all part of a plan to get a leg up on the paparazzi.

“He’s smart, because if he doesn’t changes his clothes and the paparazzi get pictures of him in the same outfit all the time, then they can’t sell the pictures,” Peter told New York Magazine last week at the Cinema Society screening of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon.”

In fact, Peter said he came up with the aromatic approach to thwarting the snappers.

“That’s what I said he should do; I said, ‘You should not change your clothes, this way, how are they going to sell the picture of you in the same outfit all the time, because it will look like it was from the same batch,’” he continued.

Ashley Greene, who stars as Robert’s sister Alice Cullen in “The Twilight Saga” films, said the plan also keeps rabid Twi-hards at bay.

“You know what, I think maybe out of a defense mechanism, I don’t sniff him,” she said with a laugh.

As for director Chris Weitz, he’s glad that he can always tell when the 23-year-old actor is nearby.

“I can smell him coming, that’s the nice thing,” Chris joked.
