Robert Pattinson, the sexy vampire from Twilight was apparently photographed in graphic print short shorts. Underwear? Small swimsuit? The kicker is... he was 17 at the time which makes it super awkward. Perhaps even more awkward is the writing (you can see if you enlarge the photo) that says "By Missfringe" between his legs in kind of a cute font. According to Snackkle, the photo was for a series themed around 1930's swimwear and published in a Chinese magazine. So whoever you are, Missfringe, thank you. [Racked]
