A few weekends ago, Robert Pattinson was seen leaving a private party in LA with a posse of friends in tow. Shockingly, The Sparkles Crew seemed to include Joaquin Phoenix and Vince Vaughn. At the time, I wondered what in the hell was going on – it’s not like Sparkles has ever worked with those guys, and from what I’ve seen, this was the first time they ever partied together too. Well, The Enquirer has an interesting take on the situation. Apparently, Vince and Rob might work together or something. But in the meantime, Sparkles is using Vince for advice. Dude. Seriously? Vince Vaughn is your bro sensei?
Vince Vaughn has a bit of advice for his new pal Robert Pattinson: dump your cheating girlfriend! Vince and Rob struck up a friendship recently while discussing a new film project, and a source says Rob opened up to Vince about his troubled relationship with Kristen Stewart.
“When Rob described how he took Kristen back after she cheated, Vince said, ‘That’s a mistake – a big one,’” the source revealed. “He told Rob he knows how easy it is to fall into a routine, but when your girl cheats on you, you should take that as a sign that you should probably end things.”
“Eince said he and Jennifer [Aniston] had a great time together [with their on-set romance] but he can’t imagine settling down with someone at 26, like Rob is doing – especially someone who cheated on him… Vince told Rob he was 40 before he was done sowing his wild oats.”
Despite the blossoming friendship, another insider says Rob isn’t ready to follow Vince’s sage advice.
“Vince got him thinking, for sure… but there’s a level of comfort he has with Kristen that he’s scared of losing.”

First of all, if Vince Vaughn gives you a piece of life advice, you should do the opposite. Always and forever. Maybe if I’m feeling generous, I’ll admit that maybe Vince could conceivably give good career advice, although I present Exhibit A, Exhibit B and Exhibit C. Yes, Vince has a wife/girlfriend/baby-mama and he seems “settled” but the dude is 43 years old and he still looks, smells and parties like an overgrown Frat Boy. Not to be a Sparkles apologist, but Robert is simply too delicate and sweet to ever take advice from Brosef McChiliDog. So… yeah. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Rob just needs to figure this stuff out for himself. Even though he seems spineless for taking Kristen back, I do think there’s something admirable in that action. He’s daring to believe that she can change. He’s daring to forgive her. Or, hey, maybe he’s just lazy and complacent and he doesn’t want to look for another girlfriend. I would imagine an unappetizing night of birddogging with Vince and Joaquin would do that to most men.
