Will Robert Pattinson ever forgive Kristen Stewart? It seems unlikely according to his new interview with the Sept. 15 issue of Australia’s Sunday Style. After splitting from his longtime girlfriend and Twilight costar in May — nearly a year after her public cheating scandal — the 27-year-old actor opens up to the magazine about relationships, forgiveness and why he still gets anxiety on red carpets.
“I’m quite sensitive, and I do like a bit of grand gesturing, but that’s just my ego,” Pattinson tells Sunday Style (via Gossip Cop) of his approach to romantic relationships. “I like to give people presents and I think of myself as the best gift giver, but only because I get stuff for myself and then make it work for the other person.”
Though the Maps to the Stars actor says “there’s not very much that really bothers me,” he adds, “I don’t ever feel the need to forgive or expect people to be. I judge people on their actions. I don’t really care if it’s wrong or right, I give them the benefit of the doubt. If they do something I can’t be bothered to deal with, I just cut them out.”
Robert Pattinson describes the type of woman he finds attractive and how it relates to his feelings about fashion in a new interview, and his answers may shock you. It’s totally contrary to the prattle from gossip sites that make up most of their news.
With the release of his new Dior Homme fragrance campaign this month, Rob is going through a bit of a transition in his career.
He’s much more secure about who he is. And, with the “Twilight” hoopla finally fading, he’s starting to come up for some air and expand his interests. The end of his relationship with Kristen Stewart also factors into the equation, but not like most of the fake gossip sites have been reporting.
“Yeah, it’s a whole bunch of stuff happening at the same time, and I am just not worrying about things so much,” he says in a new interview with the Arabian edition of Harper’s Bazaar. “I guess it just happens,” he adds.
The breakup has also helped him focus inwardly on himself, and discover new interests. “I also bought a house and I was literally doing that up and fixing pipes,” he says.
Rob also lets it be known he hasn’t given up on love; it just has to be with the right person. And who would that be?
Robert Pattinson is one of Hollywood’s reigning hunks, but the self-deprecating actor doesn’t think much of his physique and could never be accused of working out obsessively like so many other actors. The good news is, he’s thinking about hitting the gym.
Rob, 27, had several shirtless scenes in the “Twilight” film saga, although he candidly admits that his prominent abs were spray-painted on for some of those.
And, he says he probably pays a price for not being in the best shape.
“I think I don’t get some jobs because I don’t go to the gym,” he tells the Arabian edition of Harper’s Bazaar in a new interview. “I am literally the only actor in LA who doesn’t have a six-pack,” he says. “Although I am going to have to change that.”
His post-roles “Twilight,” roles are increasingly involving intimate scenes, and that’s providing the motivation to hit the gym.
“In my next film I have like three intimate scenes so I am literally thinking of those to get in shape,” he explains. But it won’t change his aversion to exercising.
“I don’t ever want anyone to see me doing exercise,” he says. “Even though I am doing it, I still think it’s so lame and embarrassing;
I am doing it out of necessity, that’s all.”
Rob is looking out for his health in other ways. During the interview, he puffs on an electronic cigarette, and obvious sign that he is continuing his struggle to quit smoking real cigarettes.
The other thing Rob is determined to protect is his peace of mind. He doesn’t buy into the Hollywood scene–“it’s not really me so I have never really felt attached to it”– but also recognizes that he is the object of intense public scrutiny.
“It’s an amazing job, especially if you don’t let yourself go crazy, but there are loads of jobs that make you go crazy,” he says about acting.
“I am very anti-paparazzi, but I guess you kind of get used to the thing. In fact I just started getting better at hiding,” he adds. “As soon as you figure out a way to live where people don’t follow you around, stress levels go down.”
Robert Pattinson put a sparkle in the eyes of a group of young people when he visited the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
The Twilight star made a surprise trip to the hospital’s Teen Lounge on Aug. 16, and joined the patients who were decorating picture frames.
The 27-year-old, who is currently filming Maps to the Stars in L.A., created a pink frame decorated with hearts, and laughed at his own “terrible” artistic skills before posing for photos and signing each kid’s picture frame.
“Robert was so nervous about meeting the kids – he didn’t want to let them down – which is a testament to how humble he is,” Child Life specialist Ana Vega said. “He was incredibly gracious and kind.”
Pattinson also visited two cystic fibrosis patients – huge Twilight fans – who were unable to leave their rooms.
“We couldn’t help laughing and smiling when one of the patients was so starstruck that she couldn’t speak. You could tell it meant the world to her – she was tearing up and smiling ear to ear,” said Lyndsay Hutchinson, the hospital’s public information officer. “The other little girl teased him relentlessly and begged him to do an American accent. They were instant friends.”
“The Twilight Saga” author Stephenie Meyer made some waves in a recent interview where she admitted that she is “so over” the franchise that made her a household name. While promoting her new film “Austenland,” Meyer told Variety of “Twilight,” “I get further away every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.”
Fans who have invested years in Meyer’s work were not especially happy to hear these words. From the way it sounds, Meyer was writing off not only the books she wrote but the movies that made Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson two of the most popular actors on the planet. Now Meyer has come forward to explain what she meant by her statements.
“Even those of you who love ‘Twilight’ the most (in fact, especially those who love it the most) have probably noticed that there’s been just a teensy little bit of backlash following the success of the books and films. I try my hardest to be thick-skinned, but I’m not much better at that than I am at brevity,” Meyer writes in a blog post on her website. “So when I speak of ‘Twilight’ becoming a negative place for me, it is entirely that near-omnipresent ‘Twilight’ antipathy that I am speaking of. And I’m not complaining or saying it’s unfair — I totally understand and even empathize with its existence. I’m just saying that ‘Twilight’ isn’t the wholly positive place for me that it once was.”
She continues, “Also, in regards to being ‘over it,’ I will admit, it’s getting harder to answer the same questions about ‘Twilight’ that I’ve been answering for the past decade (especially when I’m so excited to talk about ‘Austenland’).”
Meyer also addresses a comment she made in the Variety interview where she said of returning to the “Twilight” franchise, “What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died.” She explains, “That was referring to a solemn oath I made years and years ago to some cool fans. I swore I would not take to my grave the ideas I had for future stories, even if all I could to was list the outcomes in bullet points.”
Her bottom line? “Please, never think I don’t appreciate the people who read, watch, and love ‘Twilight.’ I am grateful for your existence every single day. Thanks for the most amazing decade!” Meyer writes.
The final “Twilight” film may have hit theaters last fall, but former star Robert Pattinson is still dealing with the franchise’s die-hard fans.
“The real odd thing about this ‘Twilight’ target group is that they aren’t really teenagers,” Pattinson said in a recent interview with Germany’s Interview magazine. “Most of them are older.”
“‘Twilight’ has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one,” Pattinson continued. “And in an intense way that has never existed before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with ‘Twilight.’”
This isn’t the first time that Pattinson has hinted at his less-than-favorable opinions of “Twilight” and its fans. Last year, a supercut made the rounds of Pattinson speaking negatively about Stephenie Meyer’s original novels with quips such as “When I read it, it seemed like it was a book that wasn’t supposed to be published.”
If you’ve been waiting for your chance to date “Pitch Perfect” star Anna Kendrick, she’s got some pointers that might help you in achieving that goal. In the latest issue of GQ, Kendrick gives some dos and don’ts, while also talking about drinking on the first date and shopping for underwear.
Though Anna was in a long-term relationship with British director Edgar Wright. That means she’s back on the market, gentlemen. If you think you’ve got what it takes to land someone like her, there’s a couple things you’ll want to steer clear of. “Two subjects never to bring up on a first date are anything to do with the actual reality of your family and, you know, liver cancer and how we’ve all probably got it,” she says.
She also tackles the age old quandary of whether to pay on the first date. “Even though it’s meaningless,” she explains, “If the guy doesn’t, or doesn’t offer, it suggest poor judgement more than anything else.”
As for locations, Anna seems to be pretty flexible, even fondly recalling a guy who took her to a Del Taco drive-through. “If you can make Del Taco romantic, then you’ve got a good thing going.” If all else fails, break out the liquor. “If sex is off the table, and you’re like ‘Let’s try to get to know each other’, I would recommend drinking highly,” says Kendrick, a fan of Belgian beers.
It’s not all dating advice from Anna, though. She also talks about the most bizarre place fans have asked her for an autograph: while underwear shopping. “There’s something deeply embarrassing about being approached when you’re holding knickers. And it’s happened TWICE!” Knickers? Sounds like dating Wright rubbed off on her.
Michael Alan Nelson Follows Super-Spy “Protocol” with BOOM!
His mission — which writer Michael Alan Nelson (“Supergirl,” “Day Men”) chose to accept — was to work with actor Peter Facinelli (“Twilight,” “Can’t Hardly Wait”) co-writing a high-concept espionage thriller about a team of young and highly-trained globetrotting super-spies, working for a mysterious benefactor known as “Dad.”
But the story Nelson and Facinelli wanted to tell — solicited earlier this year as “Orphans” – was held back after hitting some production delays. But like Ethan Hunt ripping off one his trademark “Mission: Impossible” masks, their spy story has taken on a new identity and will hit store shelves in November as “Protocol,” featuring interior art by Mariano Navarro and covers by Stephane Roux (“Zatanna”). “Protocol” may look different, but its mission is still gunning to be another action-packed tale from BOOM! Studios.
“It was such a cool idea and [Facinelli] had all these great concepts, that we all jumped at the chance to tell the story,” said Nelson of the series’ origin. “I do most of the heavy lifting on the scripting, but Peter has a lot of input as to the direction of the story, which ideas he wants to see implemented and fleshed out more. He’s been incredibly generous by letting me take a run at it.
Writing the Twilight series made Stephenie Meyer one of the best-known authors in America, but it was her experience turning the books into films that brought her to her new passion — producing. Her latest film is Austenland, a fanciful story about a woman, played by Keri Russell, so obsessed with Jane Austen that she actually visits a manor in Britain where Austen’s stories come to life. Stephenie visited us on POPSUGAR Live! today to speak about the film, working with Keri, and to weigh in on the new post-Twilight blockbuster series The Hunger Games and Fifty Shades of Grey.
