Is it just me, or has classic 1950s movie hunk James Dean been the body of one Robert Pattinson?

Robert Pattinson was looking at his very best on the set of Maps to the Stars, which is shooting in Toronto. Clad in a plain white t-shirt and with his hair clipped short, he looked every inch the modern matinee idol.

And a pic of James Dean - strictly for comparative purposes, obviously!

Rob's stint modelling for Dior Homme has obviously taught him how to be even more brooding than ever. Check out these intense snaps from the new campaign:

In Maps To The Stars, Rob plays Jerome, a limo driver who hopes to make it big in the movie biz and who befriends a girl recently released from a psychiatric hospital () for criminal pyromania. Other characters include Benjie (), who at thirteen is an aspiring child star who has been in and out of rehab since his ninth birthday and Havana, an actress haunted by her formerly famous dead mother. It's meant to be a critical look at Hollywood celebrity culture. Sounds interesting, though it probably won't keep us from checking the gossip columns to see what our favorite Brit's been up to...
