Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise stepped back into the shoes of his Tropic Thunder alter-ego Les Grossman to poke fun at the new heartthrob Robert Pattinson in a spoof video.
Pattinson who shot to instant stardom playing vampire Edward Cullen in the hit Twilight saga recently admitted he rarely washes his hair, and it proved good fodder for a new promotional clip for the MTV Movie Awards.
Cruise starring as the foul-mouthed movie mogul, issued some rather colourful advice to Pattinson, who begins the clip by discussing his plans to overhaul his scruffy look for the awards, reported Daily Mail online.
Pattinson says, "I'm thinking about cleaning up a little bit, maybe get a suit, have a shave, maybe wash my hair."
In full Grossman mode, Cruise tells the star he will arrange a hairdresser to give him a blow wave, before adding, "And then I'll give you the number of a good plumber because you've just flushed your career down the toilet!"
"Your filthy hair made you a star! Your filthy hair made me hundreds of millions of dollars and sent my fat kid to space camp four times. So what kind of shampoo are you going to use?" says Cruise to which Pattinson replies, "Dirt?"
The pair then hug as Cruise shouts, "That's my dirty dog!"
Another video shows Les Grossman directing Cruise's famous dancing scene from Risky Business.
Hosted by Aziz Ansari, the MTV Movie Awards will be attended by the A-list of Hollywood including Sandra Bullock, Adam Sandler, Taylor Lautner, Chris Rock, Steve Carell and Cameron Diaz.
