English actor Robert Pattinson will take the cover of the April 2009 issue of GQ Magazine. Captured by photographer Nathaniel Goldberg, the 22-year-old heartthrob, who plays a tortured teenage vampire in the immensely popular movie "Twilight," rocks a weeks-old beard and disheveled hair on the cover.

In the spread, Robert Pattinson goes for a "tortured rocker" look, as illustrated by his hip, all-black tee-shirt and jeans ensemble--which, incidentally, goes rather well with the actor’s "Twilight" persona.

And in the accompanying interview with GQ, Robert Pattinson spoke about a number of topics, including how he got the juicy part of Edward in "Twilight": "I took half a Valium and then went into this thing—and all this stuff happened," he said. "It was the first time I’ve ever taken Valium. A quarter. A quarter of a Valium." Stats for Drug-Addled Acting Trending: Older & Warm
