A certain Hollywood heartthrob is apparently a little insecure about his shirtless self.

After photos came out of Twilight star Robert Pattinson paddleboarding shirtless in Malibu in late March, R-Patz was reportedly embarrassed about the shots. "He's really insecure about his shirt being off," a source spilled to Us Weekly.

The mag speculates that this could have a little something to do with the fact that his vampire character, Edward Cullen, sported painted-on abs in the second installment of the uber-popular franchise.

Rob's feelings aside, we think the 25-year-old A-lister looks fabulous (as always). If he's battling some personal body-image demons, he's doing the right thing by getting a little exercise and reportedly cutting back on his smoking.

Leave the eight-pack to Taylor Lautner, Rob. You focus on staying pretty.
