Robert Pattinson says he loves bad press & he does shower

Robert Pattinson
Robert Pattinson wants us to know that he doesn’t smell. His latest story is that he does, in fact, shower. I’ll believe it when I see it. Pattinson gave an interview to Moviefone, and he claims that he loves his bad press, saying “I only look at the negative stuff. I just want to know whoever’s saying negative stuff, and I just want to remember their names.”

Robert also says something strange – that he hasn’t even been on the set of New Moon yet, so how could people know that he smells? Right. He’s been on the New Moon set for several weeks, sending Canadian fangirls into overdrive, to the point where the Mounties had to be called in. Whatever, Rob:

Most people only want to hear the good things said about them, but Robert Pattinson is the complete opposite – bring on the bad press!

“I only look at the negative stuff. I just want to know whoever’s saying negative stuff, and I just want to remember their names,” he jokes in an interview with Moviefone. “I write it all down in my black book.”

The Twilight hottie might be hard pressed to find too many bad things out there, beyond the weird rumors about his personal hygiene, that is.

“I haven’t even been on the set yet!” he says of the report that he smells bad on the set of New Moon. And when told that Zac Efron suffered through the same bad hygiene buzz, RPattz is quite surprised, and admiring.

“Really? He looks like he smells really good,” he laughs. “I also do shower.”

And beyond the legions of girls who don’t care whether he bathes or not, Ryan Reynolds recently called Rob “dreamy,” so it’s no wonder he’s got his sights set on working with his fellow hunky actor.

“Ryan Reynolds!” he laughs when asked who he’d like to work with in the future. “I’ve always wanted to work with Benicio Del Toro, I think he’s amazing. And there are tons and tons of people.”

From OK! Magazine

Who doesn’t want to work with Benecio del Toro? At least Robert has good taste in men. I’m trying to start a gay rumor, because I actually think Robert may be a bit of a man-whore with the ladies. Enjoy the ladies while they last, Robert, because once they get a whiff of your hair, all bets are off.

Robert Pattinson is shown on set in Vancouver on 3/11/09. Credit:

    I don’t find him attractive, and he sounds like a weirdo. I have watched Twilight yesterday and found it boring. Don’t think it’s movie material, TV material at best.

  2. Jacqueline says:

    I just love him to bits, I think he is beautiful!!

  3. jessica says:

    why is he soo cute in some pictures and then extremley ugly in some? even on the movie he looked good in some scenes then ugly in others i dont get it. i cant decide if i like him or not….
    I guess we’ll see how it goes but so far its lookin kind of britneyish wouldnt you say?

  4. Enonymous says:

    I agree. Robert Pattinson is somewhat attractive but the reason why he looks better in the Twilight movie is because of all that makeup that exaggerates the prettiest features, like the red lips, stand out bright eyes with that really pale skin. That kind of make up (applied by a skilled makeup artist) would make anyone look more appealing.

  5. Enonymous says:

    PS, Although he has a strong bone structure, that works against him most of the time and that is why he looks ugly eg. like the photos above. Finally yes, he does look like he stinks to high heavens and if he takes showers then I would say it was because his people reminded him and told him to, he looks like the type of guy that if left to his own devises, he would not shower for weeks.

  6. Jess says:

    I can show him hands on how to shower!!!

  7. j. ferber says:

    Showering aside, why does he smoke?

  8. lilybme says:

    handsome guy but smoking is the turn off.

  9. FF says:

    Yeah, Rob. Keep up the neuroses. *eyeroll*

    I seriously hope that if you’re going be posting Robert’s every brainfart here, and Kirsten Stewart’s every other whine, that you’ll also be posting Taylor Lautner interviews too because, frankly, while I liked some aspects of the Twilight book, the only reason I made it all the way through New Moon, and the remaining two books is because of Jacob.

    And Jacob, as portrayed by Taylor, really stood out for me in the film (which by the way, I happen to think SUCKED, so he actually made it bearable with what amounts to two tiny cameos. I didn’t know who the hell he was but I actually woke up when he came on screen.)

    So show the Team Taylor and Wolf Pack fans some love. Not everyone is Bella/Edward = truluv4eva, or swooning over Pattinson and Stewart either, for that matter.

    If I have to keep hearing about New Moon, more Taylor stuff please.

  10. Ash says:

    Don’t worry, Taylor will become much more popular. I just finished the last book yesterday,and I STILL wish she was with Jacob. He will have a lot of time in the next movie, and I’d much rather look at him anyday over R.Pattison. That guy can either looks pretty good, or really bad. I agree with Enonymous – he only looks really good in the movie because of all the make up and attention.


  11. Ash says:

    I also found it very amusing to read from Jacob’s point of view. The way the author made him sound only kept me reading more and more!

  12. FF says:

    Lord, I wouldn’t wish Bella on anyone but Edward – those two deserve each other in every possible sense – and it’s so much better when they inflict their personalities on each other rather than innocent bystanders.

    But I have to say, Jacob always sounded more fun – even when I wanted to smack him upside the head, even he was miserable – he was STILL more appealing to me than Edward.

    I know saying that is like opening the floodgates for ten-million Edward fans to descend with a vintage supply of h8terade – but for me, it’s true.

  13. MomInNH says:

    I think he’s adorable. As is the guy who plays Jacob. I don’t believe he doesn’t shower. With all that makeup being piled on for the filming, you’d kind of have to! I loved the entire series, but thought the Twilight movie sucked butt. I’m hoping they step it up for the next ones!!

  14. sassygirl says:

    i think rob-not edward-always looks good. personally i thought he looked just o.k. in the movie, but an absolute dream in real life. he’s a bit like a powdered donut in the movie. the movie was a disappoint after the book series, but then again most movies based on books are. i can’t wait to see him in some meatier roles with worthy coworkers.

    LOL. He claims otherwise, but to be honest I say BULL. I call him out on his BS,he loooooves the ladies. All he has to do is act all soft spoken, blush,bow his head, and the women jump him.

  16. kathy says:

    Ha..i knew there`d be something like that.
    I think Rob has a good portion of humor not really taking stuff seriously. A bit weird but funny, really good actor though!
    Best are all twi-hads for freaking out, If you like a laugh just turn to youtube^^

  17. taochild says:

    I just wish he’d stop sucking in his cheeks and looking at everyone from the tops of his eyes in his pics. He looks ridiculous.

  18. Lizzie says:

    Robert Pattinson is just an average person that everyone is fixated on. Yes, he is extremely good looking, but looks are in the eye of the beholder and subjective based on individual preference. Robert is a sweet, kind and genuine person and I’m sure that there is more to him that just good looks; like a wonderful personality. He has a wonderful ability to make people laugh and have a good time when around him. I wish there were more guys out there that had half of his personality and genuineness. He is an amazing actor and wonderful singer. Twilight was awesome. Little Ashes looks great and I can’t wait to see How To Be!

  19. Elin says:

    He probably hasn’t been on a set yet because they just finished rehearsals. And you can have bad body odor and STILL shower. You just aren’t as “fresh” as everyone else at the end of the day. That’s what deodorant is for. He’s British for Pete’s sake!

  20. Petie says:

    I wish Robert would just GROW UP and realize he’s nearly 23 and should wash himself, hair included!!! He thinks it’s all funny, but I know a lot of people who now thinks it’s just gross! Maybe he’ll get some kind of hair fungus and it will all fall out…then where would he be?

  21. does it matter? says:

    If you bothered to do any research, Kaiser, beyond your increasingly poorly written and erroneous, self-aggrandizing articles, you would know that Pattinson has, in fact, not been on the set since makeup tests a couple weeks ago. The Mounties were called in to the set because of Lautner and Stewart and the insane numbers of fans trying to get close to them on the set. Not, as you point to your own secondhand gossip article to corroborate, because of Pattinson.

    By yourself, Kaiser, you have driven away many regulars of this site with your misleading, clique-ish, childish posts clearly meant to incite arguments, which you perpetuate by jumping all over anyone who doesn’t agree with you. Your contribution to what was once a credible, not to mention fun, celebrity gossip site has been to lower it’s integrity to the point where it is pointed and laughed at on other gossip sites with increased frequency and fervor.

    You’ll run my IP, you’ll know who I am, and you’ll ban me for this, and that’s fine. I stopped commenting here a long time ago because of the things I outlined here and every time I come back to peek, it’s increasingly worse. It’s been sad to see.

  22. Sandra says:

    Yeah, I’m gonna need videotaped proof that he does in fact shower before I believe it :P

  23. eepshaw says:

    @ 21.

    what a profound and thought out response. but honestly, no one really cares – save for me, it was retarded. take that crap somewhere that people care, perhaps choking themselves to death over twilight.

  24. daisy424 says:

    eepshaw, you’re wrong, people do care, I am one of them.

    I am surprised that your comment made it though mod with a trigger word in it. But understand why it did.

  25. JoJo says:

    hehe, I really can’t believe how many people will actually believe these rumors…. I don’t care if he’s a freaking hobo, as long as he still looked hottness I would do him… tehe, if I was a celeb I would totally do something gross like pick a wedgie or pick my nose just to get the paparrazi off my buttt…..

  26. Syko says:

    I care too, Eepshaw. I’ve sat and watched this site deteriorate to the point where I no longer want to even lurk, much less post. It particularly annoys me when commenters attack other commenters, as you just did.

    “Celebitchy aims to be a friendly, welcoming site where people can discuss entertainment stories and current events in a lighthearted, safe environment without fear of harassment, excessive negativity, or bullying. Different opinions, backgrounds, ages, and nationalities are welcome here – hatred and bigotry are not.”

    Looks like we missed the boat on that one.

  27. Anni says:

    i second that.

    sorry eepshaw, but you have no idea what we´re talking about.

  28. Abigayle says:

    i personally think that robert sounds like a pretty cool person he seems pretty mellow and laid back. i think ppl just talk a bunch a crap because there just jealous, people sould really learn to grow up.. i dont think robert is honestly going to write back to someone who is just willing to throw themselves at him. come on ladies have a little more respect for your selves, just cuz he is a celebrity doesnt mean he is any different from anybody else..

  29. Annex says:

    He’s just typically English to me. I seem to remember they like baths in winter ugh – twice a week, and then a splash in the sink other times. Also Poms are generally self depreciating and odd when pressed too hard.

    He probably had older sisters who beat him up when he was little – kept him grounded!

    he’s oddly incongruent though – the dizzy giggles with that lost soul voice.

  30. tada says:

    he is a geek, someone said he was cute and then everyone is like well yea, oh YEA he is cute, i mean c’mon now wonder kristen wont give him the time of day

  31. Ashleyy says:

    “I don’t have too much of a sense of personal hygiene or styling or anything,” he said. “I gave up washing my hair a while back.” <–That is taken completely out of context. I watched the late night show he was on when he said that. They were making fun of his wild hair do and they were all cutting up and the host said how do you make it look like that..he said I just never wash was clearly a joke and then the whole hygiene thing was said..people need to get the whole thing story not just the bad parts.
    but anyways id shower with himmm

  32. BM says:

    At one time I liked Rob, but then started ready more and more about him and he seems like one of these manic depressive actors. He hates having his picture taking. He’s a loner. Hates crowds for fear of getting shot/stabbed. Doesn’t like any of his own work. Or he sounds like a bit of a man-whore. Telling his friends he can’t ge laid in NY. Hmm…It’s hard to say. I for one preferred the books to the movie. It seemed very low budget, not really living up to the hype. …and I would love to find a picture of Kristen Stewart out and about while she wasn’t stoned.

  33. Garcia says:

    (edit: oh my gawd, look at the pic, there is a cigar in his hand!
    He smokes?!) omg he must be depressed!

    Omg, seriously, I feel bad for him
    All these people making up these rumors on how he smells! That’s horrible, but it’s good how he handles it. But if I wuz him I’d still be sad cuz that’s what people think.

    I also can’t decide if I like him or not cuzidk how but in some pics he looked so fine oh my gawd, but sometimes he looks bad, no ofense but I think I’m more closer to liking him idk :) -

  34. Julia says:

    He is unquestionably handsome but full of shyte. Shy? Loner? Whatever. He’s such a player and he knows how to work it. Clearly the tweenies fall for the -’can’t seem to get a girlfriend’ crap. I can’t imagine anyone else does. I’m quite sure his trailer/hotel door is constantly revolving.

  35. Brenda says:

    I disagree about the movie, I thought that Robert did a great job. These are young actor’s and actresses who worked very hard to bring these books that we all love to life. They didn’t write the script.. The plaied their parts. It’s hard to take a book and make it into a movie, We all should know this. I mean how many movies have come out better then the book? Not many and knowing that we have to take as it is.
    I feel sorry for these ppl because everyone is so concerned with what their doing and who their doing that they can’t be themselves. I don’t be to sound like a bit** but who cares if he’s a plaier he’s only 22 yrs old! He’s not married so really he isn’t doing anything wrong. In interviews with Robert when he was younger right after Harry Potter you could tell that he was a shy person and so now after Twilight he’s huge and every young girl from every where is screaming his name and telling him they want to have his baby and marry him etc. That would scare anyone. Can you say stockers? And just because he’s talking about not being able to get some while in a bar with a friend doesn’t make him a bad person or a male whore, It makes him a man.

  36. Crystal says:

    The hell with Edward and Jacob.
    Its all about Jasper!

  37. sarah says:

    Jasper is by far the best out of all.
    hahaha u guys are seriously out of your minds. OF COURSE robert pattinson showers, do you honestly think the producers and director would let him not? i mean this is like, him not washing his hair every single day so he stinks and has Bo. no, get a life. i dont even find him overwhelmingly attractive but i can swear to you that he does shower. the bussines doesnt allow bad hygene. and jacobs ok,
    but Jasper is by far the most attractive, not to mention the best actor out of them all.

  38. jajajajaj says:

    blablabla, i don’t even wanna read all the comments. rob does look good in twilight, ALL the time, twilight IS a good movie, but okay, everbody doesn’t like it, that’s just the way it is. and why do you think he would give a fuck what you think of him? get a life assholes.

  39. daisy says:

    I can’t believe how everyone has jumped on the ‘I don’t shower or wash my hair’ it’s absolutely stupid! he doesn’t look dirty, grubby or smelly and his hair is just that of a young guy, if he didn’t wash it with the amount of times he runs his hands through it, it would either go frizzy or hang very limp with grease depending on hair type! I really don’t think the majority are understanding his humour, with the other comment ‘allergic to vagina’ come on what happens with an allergy? you swell, think about it, he is messing with everyone and you all swallow it up! I think he is just a young guy, new at the amount of attention and interviews and just playing around! Believe what you want but he always looks clean and tidy to me, my 10 year son is just getting into the long tussled natural looking hair, and I can assure you his is washed everyday! lol, maybe is British humour doesn’t completely travel LOL I’m british and he has me in stitches in his interviews :-)

  40. stefani snow says:

    rob is a fag and he look like a stink ass dead man. So does kristen.

  41. heaven says:

    i think he looks like he smells normal, alot of people dont really wash their hair with soap and stuff to make their hair more moldable, and it works for him plus he wouldnt smell just from not washing his hair with soap, plus its commonly used by frequent hair dyers to keep the color in so its not like its an abnormal thing
