With his promotional duties for Twilight over for another year, the star cut an unkempt figure in Los Angeles.
He went for a meal with chums including actress Sarah Roemer at La Poubelle ? which means dustbin in French.
Dressed in dark clothing, with a cap perched upon his head and a bushy beard, Rob looked a million miles away from the screen heartthrob who greeted fans on the red carpet in London at the premiere of Breaking dawn: Part 1 a few weeks ago.
During is night out without girlfriend Kristen Stewart he is reported to have attracted plenty of female attention.
A source said: "Rob was literally fending off advances from girls, left and right. Every female in the bar wanted to get close to him and for the most part, he politely ignored them."
Perhaps Rob's meal was to celebrate the continued success of his latest Twilight flick which remains at the top of the US box office for another week.
The Muppets were expected to take over the number one yesterday, but a weekend surge from Twilight fans kept the sequel at number one with ticket sales of ?10.5 million.
In 17 days since its release in the U.S., the film has grossed an impressive ?155 million domestically.
In the UK the film slipped to second spot, after Arthur Christmas had a boost in sales.
