Robert Pattinson Wants
to 'Strangle' the 'Fat
Celebrity Blogger' Who
Coined His Nickname
Robert Pattinson sounded off on his post-Twilight life in an explosive interview with the German edition of Interview magazine.
He doesn't hold back in the new interview, which is about his new role in Dior's Homme ad campaign. First up, he admits to being over Twilight, the movie series that made him a global star. He admits that on the final day of filming, rather than say behind for proper goodbyes with the cast and crew, he simply left the set and got away as fast as possible.
"The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers," he says of the books and movies' most hardcore fans. "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. 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."
And Twilight fans aren't the only thing that the British actor can't stand. He hates his abbreviated "R-Patz" nickname. "I'd like to strangle the guy who came up with it!" he says. Though Robert, 27, won't name names, he does know who is responsible for the nickname, referring to him simply as "some fat celebrity blogger."
What's next for the artist formerly known as R.Patz? A role playing legendary sci-fi/fantasy author H.P. Lovecraft in a movie directed by famed German director Werner Herzog. Hopefully his character doesn't earn him any new monikers!
