Robert Pattinson ‘wants to strangle the guy’ who came up with ‘R-Patz’ nickname

Here are some new photos of Robert Pattinson hard at work on Maps to the Stars. I should note a mistake I made last month – I made fun of David Cronenberg for using Toronto in place of LA, saying that I hated when directors think we won’t know the difference. If a film is supposed to be set in LA, I don’t understand why you can’t just film it in LA. Well, good news. After filming for a few weeks in Toronto, Maps to the Stars is now filming in LA. Yay.

In the film, Rob is playing a chauffeur, I think, and Mia Wasikowska is in there somehow. And now we know that Mia and Rob have some kind of romance, because now we have photos of Sparkles trying to bang her on some kind of porch or veranda. Keep in mind, Twihards: Mia is dating Jesse Eisenberg. She’s not trying to bang Sparkles in real life. Save your fatwas for ladies who really DO want to bang Sparkles. Like… Riley Keough, I guess.

Anyway, did you know Rob has a new interview in Interview Mag? True story. Some quotes are already starting to leak out and it sounds like Sparkles is “over it” in many different ways:

On Twihards: “The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers. 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.”

Sparkles hates his “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.” [He’s referring to Perez!]

[From Interview via In Touch]

Well, Twihards are a mixed bag. Some of them are legitimately tweens, teenagers and maybe early-20s. Then there are the Twihards who are quite a bit older. But he’s right, the Twilight/Twihard subculture is truly bizarre. I discovered that when Kristen cheated on him and Twihards basically had a collective nervous breakdown on Twitter, Tumblr and all blogs. As for his hatred of the “R-Patz” name… I rarely use that nickname just because it’s a pain in the ass to type (for me). So I just use “Sparkles” because I think it’s a sweet/cute name. He’s like a kitten to me. A sparkly kitten.

    Yawn. He first said that he wanted to strangle that person a year ago and then repeated it many times afterwards. No news.

    • Jenn says:

      He has said it a couple of times big deal , . Calm your tits people … And it’s true what he said about the twilight fans I am a fan , but go to Hollywood life, gossip cop and u will see what he is talking about , some fans are INSANE and scary , he is not Taylor or kellan who will forever be inlove with twilight

      • Rocky says:

        Why go to gossip cop just look at the comments here and I guess everyone used to be a twilight fan cuz they’re taking it personal .. Making a big deal out of nothing ..

      • pippa says:

        Rocky you said it best!

        I agree with this comment :-

        “There is a lot of overreaction to this comment. It is true and the same can be said for every obsessive fanboy out there. If that is ‘you’ and ‘you’ enjoy it, own it. Don’t take offense when someone points it out. Rob always says exactly what he thinks with no filter. That is one of the things about him that is refreshing.”

        He has always made fun of Twilight and now he called out the super obsessive crazy lunatic fans. BFD.

    • Rice says:

      I don’t hate him, but his actions and interviews have been weird post-Twilight.

    • Ме says:

      Lautner is waiting for a better career than R Patz and Kristen Trampire

  2. Melissa says:

    Wow he really resents the twi-hards, not that I don’t find them odd myself but does he have a fanbase outside of them? Not a wise move to publicly deride his most vocal supporters. He’s really rubbing me up the wrong way lately, especially the manic smile when pushing someone’s face at full force. I think he is a fairly strange person.

    • Sara says:

      Superfans are batshit. All of them. Whether they idolise a film, an actor, a pop star or a celebrity couple. Seriously. And the kind of info they have and post……………scary! They know what their idol wore last week, who they lunched with yesterday, where they are right now. God its creepy.

      But RPatz (yeah I said it) needs to remember that the wider public havent embraced him yet. He should be using his crazed superfans to springboard into mainstream success. He really shouldnt be shading the small band of soccer mums that have kept him in our consciousness …against our will.

      • TinyPixie says:

        I don’t know how he still has fans since he seems to contemptuous of them all. Of course they’ll make excuses for him so I doubt he’ll loose many of those soccer moms. However, I very much doubt he’ll be gaining any new fans and if he’s under the impression his talent will propel him to industry/critics’ darling – well he’ll have a wide awakening soon enough.

        He’s just furthering his own slide to obscurity! Keep keeping on Rpatz!

      • Another Ann says:

        I think people totally overreacted to what he said. He doesn’t hate all Twilight fans. He’s referring to the small subgroup of super obsessed fanatics who DO sit on their computers all day, stalking his friends, posting comments, etc. And the KStew crazies who hate him and flame him any chance they can. Some of these people are certifiable.

        He’s actually pretty nice to his fans – fans that meet him say he’s really nice, signs autographs, takes pictures, etc.

        Yes, he should get a publicist and learn how to phrase his comments better, and prepare for interviews better. But remember, these interviews have been translated twice. He gave them in English, they get translated to German or whatever, and then back again to English by a third party. There’s a lot that can get lost in the translation.

      • TinyPixie says:

        His fans may be insane but they’re the only ones he’s got, no need to bitch and insult them publicly. Let him complain to his friends and family about that.

    • Minty says:

      Pot meet kettle. Good Lord! Considering that he’s rumored to have a train wreck fascination with googling himself every chance he gets, I guess he’s in fairly good company with his ‘twilight’ fans.

      Sit down and chill Mr. Pattinson, for this too shall pass.

    • TherapyCranes says:

      I did not like the twilight movies but I’m a fan of Sparkles. I think he’s attractive and not a terrible actor. I actually really liked Water for Elephants. I look forward to seeing him in more roles because I think he could have a future in the industry.

      As for the hate he harbors for twihards I can understand that I guess. He doesn’t want to be typecast as the teen heartthrob vampire. That role was also pretty effeminate so maybe it makes his masculinity feel threatened.

    • Bridget says:

      Are thise even the fans that any sane person would want representing them? As long as the Twihards are rabin in their love for all things Rob, no one will ever take him seriously. They make him a punchline, not a movie star.

    • Jenn says:

      Rob has millions of fans, but these fans are bonafide fans, not the haters, etc. I am a fan and love his movies. I think he will be one of Hollywoods leading actors during his career. I think the fans that are so crazy are the ones that hate Rob because he left Kristen, or happy Rob left her, I forget what some of those crazy fans are called. I am happy that I am a normal fan.

    • Denise says:

      All of that, I find endearing. Brits don’t put up with bullsh*t, and I think he’s taken enough of it. He’s not playing along anymore and I don’t blame him. He took a role a few years ago and his film exploded. He’s not responsible for people who have emotional problems, fans or not.

  3. Damn, the kissing scenes with him and Mia looks hot! I wish I was her 😀

    • Amelia says:

      How awkward must that be? Pretending to get it on in front of scores of crew members.
      I’m really glad I’m not an actress. Not that I ever could be. I’m a crappy liar.

    • Steph says:

      They’re a little hot, but why is he making a claw? It made me think, who would you rather have on top of you: Jessie Eisenberg or Robert Pattinson? Probably RP.

  4. V4Real says:

    He wants to strangle the guy who came up with the name R-Patz but the woman who wrote Twilight gets off scott free. 🙂

  5. jen says:

    He is such a douche. He continuously mocks and belittles all the people who made him a millionaire and gave him a career. Jerk, you wouldn’t be working with Cronenberg in the first place if it wasn’t for Twilight, shut up.

    • La jolie now Andrea says:


    • pippa says:

      Twilight may have given him visibility but Cronenberg made it very clear that he was impressed with Rob in Remembr Me and Little Ashes.

      I am sure he is grateful for Twilight and he has said so in many interviews. WTF is wrong with calling out the batshit crazy LUNATICS. Go to Gossipcop and see how many thousands of comments (about 10 thousands in a couple days!!) are being posted under his articles.

      • TinyPixie says:

        His acting has always been crap. Let’s not beat around the bush. He got that role in a Cronenberg film because of Twilight and the fame Twilight afforded him. Certainly not his dubious acting ability in flop movies like Remember Me and Little Ashes. Whatever with what DC said to justify it, it came down to money and financing, like it almost always does with indie films. He’s a terrible actor and part of what made Twilight garbage was *his* performance.

      • pippa says:

        You forgot to add “IMO”

        He got the best reviews for Cosmopolis. DC never hid the fact that Twilight popularity did help him get Cosmo greenlit. BUT he is an auteur who isn’t going to sit back and take a crappy actor and make him act magically. YOU may not have liked Cosmo – (own it that you are biased) but the fact of the matter is Rob got his best reviews for that movie to date. The last scene with Paul Giamatti which goes on for about 20 mins or so was done is a couple takes. One of the best scenes. That movie got wrapped ahead of schedule. Not gonna happen if things are as bad as you say.

        One can only do so much with a crappy plot and horrendous screenplay like Twilight. Its over. Move on.

      • La jolie now Andrea says:

        Please everyone knows his acting ability sucks… He can’t act his way out of a paper bag..
        Its as if the twilight actors were carefully selected bunch of crappy actors!!!

      • pippa says:

        “La jolie now Andrea says:

        Please everyone knows his acting ability sucks… He can’t act his way out of a paper bag..”

        “Everyone knows?” Nope. that is just your opinion.

      • Olivia says:

        @pippa I just hope this Cronenberg film does better than cosmopolis at the BO and with the critics. Cosmopolis had the lowest RT score for Cronenberg in over a decade. If this partnership is going to continue, Rob has to pull in the BO or the film has to hit in the 70 or 80’s like his other recent films.

      • jen says:

        He was impressed with Remember Me? HOHOHOHOHOHO. Cronenberg must be losing his mind.

      • Love Him says:

        Oh but he is a shit actor. Is he sleeping with that director or something. His acting technique for expressing emotion is to hold his breath and clench his jaw. Good God!

        He is just lucky that Kstew was so hated that we forgot how awful he is.

      • Rocky says:

        If I remember correctly most of you have always criticize the twihard , the crazy robsten fans , now all of u are defending the crazy twihards haha bunch of hypocrites..

      • V4Real says:

        @Pippa but if not for Twilight he probably wouldn’t have been in Remember Me. So yeah he owes his success to Twilight.

        @Rocky I never really said anything about the twihard fans on an open forum. But I will say this. It doesn’t matter that people on here have talked bad about the Twilight fanactics but it should matter if Rob does because they are his fans, not ours.

    • The Original Mia says:

      Exactly! Have a seat, Sparkles and be grateful you have any fans.

  6. grabbyhands says:

    As much as I understand where he’s coming from and and as eye rolling I find the whole Twi-hard phenomena,he could have found a better way to express himself. If it wasn’t for those god awful movies, no one would know who he is today.

    • mom2two says:

      Yeah, this is the truth. Especially for guy, who in my opinion, is not that good looking and not that good of an actor.
      We all know that the twilight fandom has it’s fair share of crazies..he’s aware of it. He could have expressed himself better, just by saying, “Man, I really hate the nickname RPatz. I’d rather just be called Rob.” I don’t know what he could have said about the Twilight fandom other than, if it wasn’t for those people going to see the movies, I probably wouldn’t have the opportunity to do these other projects and possibly not even this interview.

  7. La jolie now Andrea says:

    This guy is overrated if you ask me! I don’t get his hype… Not at all for a guy going on 30 he doesn’t act his age, not mature.. He needs to grow up! And enough of this strangling shit he has said it numerous times.. He needs to deal with the name many celebrities are even called worse names!!! Please twihards am not stating my mind nothing personal don’t throw rocks at Me….

    • Lou says:

      I’m a fan of Rob, not particularly Twilight and I was slightly offended by that article, I think he could have been more diplomatic. Having said that, this is a translated interview from a German mag and his humour doesn’t go over well in print interviews anyway, let alone a foreign one. Still I agree, he needs to be careful about alienating fans.

  8. akua says:

    Well his hate for Twilight is very funny…He and His ex needs to thank Twilight for making them rich…As for comment on the Twihards you will be surprise on how old them are especially the Robsteners..they are insane.

  9. ella says:

    He should probably blame J.Lo. She started it all.

    And I laughed at “some fat celebrity blogger”.

    Plus I can’t blame him for thinking Twi-hards are crazy. You have to be grateful for fans but at some point the craziness just becomes too much and the Twilight fandom is well past that point.

  10. Tessa says:

    Do we really believe he did a sit down interview with In Touch? Or is this just a piecemeal compilation of old and made up quotes? He never does interviews with tabloids. Come on.

  11. Erinn says:

    Pretty sure it’s cheaper to do the filming in Canada if possible. Twilight was supposed to take place in Washington, though they filmed it in British Columbia. The Scarlet Letter with Demi was filmed in NS, and the tv series Haven is supposed to take place in Maine, but it’s filmed in Lunnenburg NS.

    • Sixer says:

      There are mahousive tax credits for filming in Canada, I believe.

    • Tig says:

      Cronenberg made mention numerous times during Cosmopolis promos that, for him at least, location/ casting always involved tax credits/incentives. That’s not that unusual.

      The “strangle the guy” quote is years old, so don’t get why it’s getting attention now.

      He, in the past, has always taken time to pose for pics/autographs for fans. I get the frustration of trying to get out from under something that has made his life a total fishbowl.

      • TinyPixie says:

        Apparently he repeated the strangle quote and the ‘fat blogger’ who gave him the nickname in some interview to promote Dior, so that’s why it’s getting press.

        Maybe he should do less whining in interviews….

    • Algernon says:

      It’s way cheaper in Canada. And Chicago, Portland, New Orleans, Detroit…

      The trades have been banging on for years about how expensive it’s gotten to film in LA and how much business they’re losing year after year. It’s actual front page news in LA. But it’s also all over sites like Deadline, THR, etc, at least once every couple months. Any time a city is pretending to be another city, it’s about money.

    • Miska says:

      And Cronenberg is a Canadian, who has said repeatedly that he prefers to film in Canada. Aside from tax incentives, he also normally gets a huge chunk of his funding from the Canadian government’s film programs, so it should be filmed in Toronto not LA.

  12. Anname says:

    Wander over to Gossip Cop to see exactly what he is referring to – extreme fans arguing with extreme fans on the other side.
    It seems he has hit the wall with fans/paps, after 5 years of it all, and we are finally seeing his frustration. I think he would love to get rid of the nuts and the extreme fans, but unfortunately these comments just make him sound ungrateful to all the fans. Which I don’t think he is, based on how many times he has said how appreciative he is of the Twi fans for getting him where he is.

    • Lou says:

      A++++ This I think is probably true. In fairness to him, he has been put through the wringer, especially this last year. He’s always been generous with fans and noted how grateful he is to Twilight. I do think the fact fans are stalking him constantly, collecting trash from his bins and going on pilgrimages to his neighbourhood, probably has something to do with why he derided them here. The guy has had to move into a more secure home to get away from them. I’m a fan (not a crazy one) so I’m prepared to cut him some slack.

      • another nina says:

        If I am not mistaken, he used to live in a gated community, and his neighbor was a Catholic priest, and there were several Brad Pitt’s owned rental properties around. His house had a top notch security on many-many levels. It’s all publicly available information, which he told himself, by the way, in his interviews. Anyway, I highly doubt his fans could have abused his trash bins…There was a huge interest in him at the time of Twilight but it has faded down, so he should stop whining and cut off excuses for his lousy acting.

      • Anname says:

        Another Nina, his $6 million house is not in a gated community, and there is a youtube video of nutty fans stealing a trash bag and going through his garbage. They are holding up packages with his name on the mailing label, so we know it’s his trash. I think that type of thing would drive anyone crazy, and he no longer lives there b/c everyone knows where it is. His frustration is understandable, but this is one of the first times I have seen him really express it. But I think he needed to clarify his remarks a bit more, and not sound like he hates all his fans.

    • Tig says:

      Why wander to GC? Just look here! LOL

      • mia girl says:

        Tig – You’d think reading comments here would be enough, but Anname is right. They don’t even come close.

        A glimpse at the GC comment boards is looking into some strange parallel world. I am not even sure these fans are as connected to the actors/movie as they are to being in a faction and outdoing eachother. In the name of defending their side they not only stalk Pattinson and Stewart and know the most minute details about them, but they apparently hack into their friends’ Twitters, instagrams etc. Some of these fans stalk their friends and apparently know all their friends names, lives, clothes, pets. It’s cray cray.

        So while he probably should not talk about it and quietly move on, I can absolutely see why Pattinson would feel the need to detach himself from those in that fandom… because it’s truly bizarre and scary.

      • Olivia says:

        What is even more weird is how many Rob fans follow Kristen’s friends and family on twitter and instagram. I think Rob might be wrong about his fans.i don’t think they are as obsessed with Rob as they are Kristen. when a super Rob fan is the one hacking into Kristen’s friends and familys social media, I would say there is a problem.

    • Miss Bennett says:

      Exactly Anname! All the the Twihards and Krisbians are using this as an excuse to rip him apart. The worm has turned. Time to keep your head down Rob. They’re after your blood.

    • Janet says:

      Some of his more rabid fans are completely off the wall. I can see why he wonders what they do all day. It’s as if they have no life except talking about him 24/7/365. It’s scary.

  13. Mia 4S says:

    Well he’s a bit of a bitch isn’t he? It’s just precious when Sparkles tries to act tough. 😉

    Seriously though his PR needs to muzzle him, those weirdos are his core fanbase.

    • ORLY says:

      He claims not to have a PR person. He should get one, STAT!

      • PunkyMomma says:

        Yep. He said in the interview he does not have a PR person because he’s too cheap. He relies on his family and management for PR advice.

    • Jenn says:

      Those fans arn’t his core fanbase. His real fans have moved on with him. The crazies are still on boards through out the internet. I used to like to read Gossip Cop for all the celebrities but I don’t even go there any longer. The Krisbians, Nonstens, Nonnies, and I don’t know what any other names are, but they are maniacs who will hunt you down if you dare say anything they don’t like.

  14. Vesta says:

    I want to kiss the guy who invented that name.

    RRRRR-PATTTTZZZZZZ! Oh poor Rob, such a horrible situation you’re having in life – a nickname you don’t like. From now on I’m always going to use it.

    • Tapioca says:

      In the same way that Scar-Jo will always be “Scar-Jo” to me now, after she moaned about it!

  15. Sixer says:

    Is Mia in every single film that’s being made? Or does it just feel like it?

  16. nina says:

    He absolutely has no chemistry with women and those photos of him and Mia look like a guy who doesn’t know how to touch a woman.

    • TinyPixie says:

      He comes off as asexual and he can’t even ACT attracted to women on screen. Painful to watch.

    • another nina says:

      +1. Cringeworthy.

    • lady mary. says:

      yeah ,i have noticed that too ,his sex scenes are the most dull ones ,he is sexy but he has no chemistry with any of his leadin ladies

      • Lou says:

        Lol, the KStew stans are here.

      • TinyPixie says:

        Why is it that whenever there is criticism of Rpatz, one of his stans has to brand you as some kind of Kstew loon?

        Unfortunately they are both douchey about Twilight, their fans and their perceived ‘talent’ – maybe a little too alike.

    • Another Ann says:

      How can you tell anything from a couple of still shots? Especially without knowing the context of the story and the characters.

      I think I’ll wait to see the movie before judging the chemistry between them.

  17. TinyPixie says:

    Not wise to diss his fans since the Twihard nutters are his *only* fans and the only ones who go see his flop movies. You alienate them, you got nobody left.

    The only reason he’s even getting roles is because of Twilight, not his sucky acting.

    He’s way too untalented to come off this snobby, douchey, and negative.

    • pippa says:

      Did he hit a nerve when he called out the twihards? Sounds like it 😉
      With your constant whining about Rob, you sound like a RobSTEN fan who got butthurt because he dumped your idol, KS. Now with his new interviews and soundbites, you have a new stick to beat him with 🙄 Yeah we get it that this is a bitching site and you cannot find anything nice about him. Surprise!!

    • Shy says:

      Couldn’t have say this better. He needs to stop whining like a little bitch. Ungrateful douche.

    • Miss Bennett says:

      I disagree. He does have some talent. Only time and a few good films will tell if he can move on from Twilight. It’s obvious you dislike him and it influences how you perceive his acting, just as people who are his fans can’t see that he’s hardly Oscar worthy at this point. He’s neither the worst nor the best actor out there. Everyone here has their mind made up one way or the other.

  18. LAK says:

    The location of film shoots is very dependent on where they are getting their funding especially if it involves tax credits.

    That’s why you have shoots all over the world for films/TV shows that are supposedly set in USA.

    Very few films/TV shows are filmed where they are set except for sitcoms and or possibly if they are using soundstages, and those that do are getting a very sweet deal financing wise including very generous tax credits.

    It’s all put together in post so that the movie goers/TV viewers are non the wiser.

    • Sara says:

      Spot on as usual LAK.

      Many shows just have a second camera crew who go on location with the AD and pick up background shots. Its all about the budget and tax credits.

    • Sara says:

    • ORLY says:

      Movie/TV shows are make-believe, it shouldn’t really matter where they’re shot, as long as it looks authentic enough.

      • LAK says:

        Nonetheless the decision to shoot in a particular location over another is always about money.

        ….even when soundstages are being used such that location shouldn’t matter.

      • ORLY says:

        Cronenberg’s films often get bursaries from telefilm Canada, it’s one of his incentives for shooting there. He’s also from Toronto and likes to shoot at home.
        My point wasn’t about taxes and incentives, LAK. I’m fully aware.
        It just seem like people want movies to be filmed in the location it’s based on, always.

      • LAK says:

        ORLY – ah Understood. 🙂 I interpreted your earlier comment differently.

        Further to your point, there is also the meltdown when books are adapted or with biopics where the audience want a 100% lookalike (clone) to play the role irrespective of script or performance.

        It’s infuriating. I mean we aren’t making documentary here!!!

        With book adaptations, there is also the meltdown when adaptation isn’t chapter and verse as written in the book. It feels like what they want is a live graphic novel and don’t seem to understand the difference in medium.

      • ORLY says:

        LAK– exactly, about adaptations. I have to remind myself of that sometimes because I read so much. Nothing will be as I thought in my imagination.
        Hunger Games was an example of that for me. I loved the books so much that the movie, though really good, would never have lived up to my expectations.

  19. Olivia says:

    So Rob wants to strangle someone? Does that mean he thinks FAT bloggers don’t deserve to breathe air? He seems a bit frustrated about a lot of things when really he should seem free. Twilight is over, Kristen is out of the picture. Why is he whining about his fans and their behavior. Their obsessive behavior may be creepy, scary and obsessive but they are the ones who made him a celebrity.

    • DB says:

      These more diehard Twi fans are also the ones who don’t want his love interest in real life or on screen to be anyone except Kristen aka Bella. They are large in size but whether they are truly his fans or Twi only fans remains to be seen. In fact except for Twi, they haven’t really in large number supported ANY of the cast or even the author, just look at The Host box office. They also even before the breakup seemed to think they have ownership of his life and who he dates/works with. They are beyond obsessive to the point they turn off anyone else. That’s a liability, not an asset. I’ll also point out though that the quote about them being spread far and wide isn’t the COMPLETE quote but then his closing remark isn’t titillating for some…

  20. Lou says:

    I think he looks gorgeous on set in his suit, and the kissing scene with Mia looks hot. Looking forward to this movie!

  21. lucy2 says:

    I didn’t realize someone held a gun to his head and forced him to star in a movie franchise based on a hugely popular (and terrible) book series with a built in rabid fan base.

    It’s getting annoying how all this Twilight people are coming out attacking it and attacking the fans. Please sit down. 6 years ago you had nothing. Not even a place to live or even a car. Rob had to sleep on people’s couches for a while. Twilight gave him everything. And while there’s a group of fans that is obsessed with his personal life and are kinda crazy and stalkery, not all of them are like that. And they all have defended him and supported him. Does he really think he stands a chance with the general public? The general public thinks he’s a bad actor and can’t stand him. Same with Stephenie meyer. Nobody likes her except the fans who actualy have tried to give a chance to her other work. To say that you are over something or to attack the very people that got you were you are is not only ungrateful, it’s deluded. Please don’t forget who put you there. Those crazy fans started the buzz everywhere. If it weren’t for them making super long lines at comic con, nobody would’ve even begin to start paying attention to Twilight or Robert. It was that passion that made him even remotely interesting.

    And let’s not forget that Robert defended the first movie before it came out, telling the media that he didn’t believe it was a chick flick. He was taking it super seriously until he became embarrassed. Why? Because the thing people criticized the most out of the first movie was HIS performance. Long before people started making fun of Kristen.

    It’s like they resent what made them famous because it also made them a joke.

    • Shy says:

      Great post. Didn’t expect that from you. You were always defending him. Welcome to the dark side.

    • aquarius64 says:

      Exactly! Twilight has branded Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, and Stephenie Meyers as hacks who got lucky to be part of a major film franchise. Anna Kendrick has an air of respectability with her Twilight ties because of an Oscar nomination and recognition for her acting. The Trio won popularity contest but public scorn because they are mostly tabloid fodder. The Razzie sweeps and “The Host” bombing at the box office have shown the public outside the fan base has tired of them. Kristen’s Mini-Coopering has damaged the franchise, despite the money haul for Breaking Dawn 2. The Trio and Meyers may have tons of money in the bank, but they still have to prove they have the chops to be successful in Hollywood. I think that’s why they didn’t show up for the Teen Choice Awards, when BD2 won seven awards. People were crying ingrates, of course were crying scheduling conflicts to show up.

    • Sisi says:

      yeah he wouldn’t even have had this interview without that franchise, because no one would be interested in what he had to say

      • pippa says:

        Well everybody in that business has to start somewhere.

      • Sisi says:

        Then there is no need to sound ungrateful in interviews.

      • pippa says:

        That is your perception. To many he didn’t sound ungrateful. He is obviously had enough with the judgmental,intrusive, lunatic, over-obsessive fans after 6 years. BFD. Go read his other earlier interviews to appreciate the difference between being grateful for his Twilight experience and being disdainful towards over-invested fans. He has always called them out. He did it in 2010 summer before Eclipse. He called them clinically insane. Well like someone said if you think you are one of those crazy fans, own it. Don’t be butthurt if your behavior is called out. He hasn’t changed – not that much.
        But it is easy to pick on him by his haters and Krisbians.

  23. NewWester says:

    Isn’t it funny how Robert Pattinson and Ms. Meyer are now trashing the source of their huge bank accounts? Is it because they have new projects to promote?
    I can understand how it must be difficult to have a normal life with your every move or word spoken being reported on Twitter or other social media and also dealing with aggressive paps. But come on, I can see how some of the older celebs are not comfortable with it but these young ones for the most have grown up seeing how these social media sites and blogs treat celebrities. If they were not comfortable with it why get into that field in the first place?
    I am not making excuses for the behavior of the paps

  24. NewWester says:

    Just continuing my post! But all jobs have negatives and if RP and KS can not deal with it maybe they should quit and find another profession or accept the choice they made and STFU!!

    • pippa says:

      Well he is doing the next best thing and choosing to do small movies which many aren’t likely to watch and he wont be doing huge promos for those small movies as well. So people like you who want him to disappear just because he is aware of the craziness surrounding him can rejoice.

      • another nina says:

        Are his employers and investors aware of it? That he makes sure that his movies won’t be seen by anyone, so that he can take a rest from his fans? 😉 You, stans, are precious! 😉

      • Olivia says:

        @pippa except he specifically said he did Dior endorsement because he needed to stay in the public eye. What actor choses a perfume endorsement over a big budget film? Certainly he could have found a quality big budget film to keep him relevant while he filmed the indies. It is a weird plan. Either drop out of the massive spotlight and hone your craft or stay in the spotlight but he shouldnt use a perfume endorsement as a replacement because that makes it seem like he wants the obsessive fans and the spotlight.

      • another nina says:

        @Olivia “What actor chooses a perfume endorsement over a big budget film?”

        I assume a pretty face, which knows that he can’t act. He is not stupid, this I give to Pattzz…

      • TinyPixie says:

        And probably the same reason Kristen ‘I hate fame’ Stewart accepted the Balenciaga endorsement deal. They know the gravy train is running out quickly.

      • pippa says:

        @another nina –

        Your comment isn’t original. I get it if you constantly bitch about him you are fine but hey don’t ever bother to defend him or you get called out as a “stan”. Gasp!

        @Olivia – He was pretty open about why he chose to do endorsements. What more do you guys want? If he had done some big budget movie and it failed like so many do these days, of course he will get called out for being “a crappy” actor and that that is why it failed. Forget about other big names like Depp bringing out one bad movie after another…. in Rob’s case – it will of course be bad because he is a “crappy” actor.
        What Big quality movie? All are superhero movies. Rob himself said he isn’t suitable for that. What he is doing is wise imo. He and his team may have a plan somewhat similar to George Clooney – he gets to endorse products and that enables him to do the movies he likes to make.
        I am sure he is aware that these small movies will never make the kind of money big movies makes. That is the norm. But for some reason there is a market for it and these small movies do get made. Rob wants his share of that. big deal. This model is so much better than doing a big flop movie and getting a bad rap for it.

      • another nina says:

        @ pippa — you are running out of the arguments for defending RP. He gets 2nd plan roles in small movies because he CAN’t get roles in big movies although he auditions for them…Why is it so difficult to admit it? And yes, they still make good movies in Hollywood, year after year. Are you seriously implying that no movie is good for Robbie ?:)

      • Tig says:

        Pippa, I admire your fortitude, but the negatrons are out in force today.

      • Olivia says:

        @pippa George Clooney played batman and did the ocean movies. Both big budgets. I think George does endorsements for the cash so he can live comfortably in his Italian villa. I don’t think he does it to keep relevant which is the reason Rob said he is doing it.

      • TinyPixie says:

        His fans think he’s the next George Clooney or Leo DiCaprio instead of the next Orlando Bloom.

        Excuses excuses why their Robbie is a continual flop.

      • pippa says:

        @TinyPixie – no I don’t see him as Leo or GC. Rob is unique. Otherwise I would consider myself a fan of Leo or GC which I am not.

        I believe in giving Rob a chance for a few more years or a few more movies in the aftermath of Twilight.
        He has only had Cosmopolis since Twilight and he has said he believes in himself more as an actor after this experience. So yeah his fans want to wait and see how far his skills will get proved before dumping on him. We don’t jump up and down just because he is doing something opposite of what the majority want him to do.
        I will declare him a failure after a few years with no good reviews for his acting or if he totally fails to work with good directors.

        Lets wait to see what The Rover and Mtts have to offer. Geez!

      • TinyPixie says:

        Pippa, he’s had a number of movies come out since Twilight. He’s had lots of chances, more than most actors. Why do his fans want to discount those? Oh, yes, because they were massive flops and the critics and audiences hated his performances…

    I see that Robert is getting a lot of backlash from the internet already…. Am glad its happening

    • pippa says:

      How nice.

    • Suzeque says:

      @La jolie, You truly live up to the name of this blog post!

      @Pippa, you’re the best but you can’t reason with this bunch of women who may say they aren’t Kristen fans but they don’t fool me or you. The hate they feel for Rob is so evident with their comments….some of them doth protest too much!

      • Olivia says:

        @suziekew so I guess that means you think all of Kristen Stewart haters are Rob fans?

      • Sky_O says:

        Of course when someone has something negative to say about Rob it must mean they are Kristen fans. Which is not the case, but I guess it softens the blow.

        By the way, why is Kristen mentioned in this article, is it supposed to detract from the fact that Rob sounds like a ungrateful jerk in his recent interviews? If you don’t want people talking about her don’t bring her into it.

        Well all see how crazy the Twi-hards get, but I can’t help but laugh at the situation. Rob throws his ardent fans under the bus, meanwhile the same fans defend and come up with excuses for him.

      • TinyPixie says:

        No, I would say most of the people who criticize Rob also can’t stand Kristen Stewart. Their pretentious attitudes are very very similar.

        Stop making excuses about why people don’t like him.

      • La jolie now Andrea says:

        In as much as I dislike Rpatz I dislike Kstew even more and like someone rightly mentioned why bring Kstew in this thread.
        I don’t care what pippa and sudeque think I dislike ungrateful stars who are not grateful to the fans who made them what they are..

      • Lou says:

        Lol, there are like four or five hard core K stans who comment on every single RP post about how useless he is. They don’t just post one or two comments either – as one might do on a post about someone they dislike. They post over and over again, arguing that they’re not K stans, but feel they must right the wrongs Rob has inflicted upon Hollywood. Could this be one of the things Rob was referring to in the interview? I think perhaps so.

  26. jess says:

    Some of you are so sensitive. Hes talking about how obsessive the twilight fans are. Hes not saying he hate them or that hes ungrateful for what twilight has gave him. If you read the whole interview I think he comes off very honest and I think he realizes now in order to stay in the business that you have to play the gane and promote yourself as well as your movies.I think hes smart for going with Dior instead of a huge blockbuster. Blockbusters are not doing as well at the Box Office like they use to and are not even that good. He needs to stick with indies right now and Build up his acting cred. He has potential.

    • Olivia says:

      @jess then perhaps instead of wondering what the twilight fans do all day on line, he should realize their all day long internent activity keeps him relevant and subsequently employed. These people he calls creepy and scary keep his name in the buzz. I would be more impressed with his strategy if he took a page out of Ryan G book. He disappeared after the notebook, attempted to lose the obsessed notebook an base, honed his craft and came back a respected indie actor. He didn’t cater to the people he seems annoyed by which is exactly who this Dior campaign is aimed at.

      • TinyPixie says:

        Well, Ryan Gosling has talent, which is the major difference.

      • TinyPixie says:

        Interesting point kiki. I think people thought once he ditched Kristen everything would be perfect. Turns out he’s just as pretentious and ungrateful as she is and isn’t afraid to show it.

        I think that article about Rpatz flopping was because both Bel Ami and Cosmopolis were both box office bombs and came out around the same time. It showed he couldn’t open a film on his own.

    • Miss Bennett says:

      jess, your comment is balanced, thoughtful and reasonable. I agree with you, but it will never fly here. 😉

      • kiki says:

        I think that what most people fail to realize is, its only because people were so busy throwing shit at Kristen is why he has been able to skate this long without people shading him. I remembered before the scandal many movie blogs were writing him off. Even the dailymail wrote a brutal piece about how his career was dead. The fact that Kristen isn’t there anymore to get the most shit we will see how he fares.

      • Olivia says:

        @kiki interesting thought. I guess for many people, he was the better half of Robsten and now that he is on his own, his flaws are evident. Movie blogs were writing him off because he made cosmopolis and then had nothing in the pipeline for well over a year. Bel Ami tanked, he bailed on the london screening, he was following Kristen to Paris fashion week. He even went to hang out at swath press junket. He was hanging with that shady al turki man who is excellent friends with Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. He didn’t have any type of work to show.

  27. Jennifer12 says:

    It’s a stupid nickname, and I hate when they do it to other people as well. Are we that lazy we can’t type someone’s name? And I have to say, seeing these photos, and having seen his Twilight audition and a few other photos…. I get the feeling this guy is quite good in bed. He seems very passionate and sensitive.

    • kiki says:

      I really do get a kick out of the fact that some of his fans go on and on about how much better of a career he has as compared to Kristen. You should send kstew flowers for how well cosmo did. It over perform first week it came out because of the scandal and everyone feeling so sorry for him . The next week it went into the deep deep abyss. All this nonsense about how he only does indies because that’s what he wants to do is complete bs. He wants to do big budget but HE said himself they wont hire him because he is to twilight.

      • Lou says:

        The thirst… Are there no KStew posts for you to comment on?

      • kiki says:

        @lou what thirst he has no fan base but twihards. cosmo showed you that, the same fans he is shitting on now are the same fans he was straight up begging to buy 8 tickets for in cosmo.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Um, holy cow. I’m not a huge Rob fan and have never seen any Twilight films. I don’t like Kristen Stewart because she seems like an entitled brat. I think Rob would actually be a really passionate, sensitive guy to be around (I’m married already, just noticing). I liked him in some of his indie films. The end.

    • Olivia says:

      @kiki when did Rob beg people to buy tickets to cosmopolis. I know his fans bought multiple tickets to remember me and handed them out but I don’t recall him begging for people to buy multiple tickets for cosmopolis. What is weird about cosmopolis BO is that it did pretty well the first weekend and then it fizzled. I don’t get it. It seems he has loads of fans but his BO doesn’t reflect it. WFE was a pg13 movie, it should have pulled in bigger numbers. Sure it made back it’s budget but it didn’t knock it out of the park considering it appealed to many age groups.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        Olivia – Rob actually asked his fans to buy multiple tickets to Cosmopolis during his appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

      • kiki says:

        I cant remember which one I saw it on but he did say it. The thing is his fan base is obsessive which makes it look like he has more fans that are actually there. Let’s be honest most of there fan base is only about twilight and the relationship.

      • Olivia says:

        Thanks for the replies. I don’t recall him saying it. Well, his latest comments might not endear him to some of his fanbase since he thinks they are obsessed, creepy and weird. I sure hope none of them are fat since he seems to like to throw that out as an insult. He took the high road for so long in this twi mess, I can’t believe he has decided to start throwing shade and at his fans. Maybe he is prepared to have only the sane women left. Hope he collects some guys as fans. Wonder if Dior will bring in any? Do guys like this type of endorsement or is it geared towards women buying for guys?

  28. Jenny says:

    Was what he said not true? I mean, I’d understand the outrage if he was blowing the situation out of proportion. But what he said seems fairly generous based on some of the crazy stalkerish things truly obsessive fans have and continue to do.

    Besides, I get the impression those obsessive fans are *proud* of the fact they post hundreds of comments daily and will take it as a weird compliment.

    I also consider myself a fan, but I can draw a line between the type of fans he’s referring to and myself, so why be offended?

    In reality I think a lot of non-fans assume ALL RP/twilight fans are certifiable. And that’s more annoying than him (truthfully) pointing that some fans go overboard. Some of us ARE normal people who don’t have time to spend 5 hours a day obsessing. And we know that. The absolute scathing derision from non-fans based on the actions of one segment of the fandom is ridiculous.

    • TinyPixie says:

      Then maybe he should have made it clear that he was shading a certain breed of Twilight fan who cross the line into stalking/harassment. Instead he throws them all under the bus (the ones who comment on Twilight all day on their computers) as a bunch of no-life losers. It’s those no-life losers on the internet who give his career buzz and go see his movies. Does he think he got where he is based on talent? Or that normal people are interested in his acting?

      • pippa says:

        If “some” lack reading comprehension it is not Rob’s problem. He may or may not gain new fans as he proceeds to make new movies…. but at least he will get rid of those pretending to be his fan but truly only cared about his stupid relationship.

        Its obvious you are not a Rob fan and you claim to not like KS either. So why so many innumerable posts bashing Rob? Just say your piece in one or 2 posts and move on. Sounds to me like you are quite obsessed with him 😆

      • Jenny says:

        I think the line is fairly well drawn. If you aren’t sitting around commenting obsessively for hours upon hours a day, he’s not talking about you. If you don’t engage in that behaviour, there’s no reason to be offended. Simple.

        I love the jab about ‘normal people’ at the end of your comment. Why can’t people be normal AND like Rob? Why do the two have to be mutually exclusive?

        I just don’t understand complete disregard. There are plenty of us who are normal, I assure you. It’s a shame that the majority of non-fans suggest we’re all nuts because of the bad behaviour of the most loud-mouthed fans. The friends I’ve made in this fandom are some of the nicest people I’ve ever known. It’s a shame that we all have to get generalized into one big crazy group because of the actions of the worst among us.

        I’ve never gone out of my way to claim Rob is the best actor, or hate on KS, or any of the other lame things some people assume defines Rob fans. I just like the guy and enjoy watching him in interviews and following his career. That’s it.

  31. St says:

    Well, I understand him, of course. Those poor celebrities – they all want to be respected; loved on Internet in comments, where everyone will praise and compliment on them; get awards and million of dollars… That’s all they want. They all think they deserve it.

    But Pattinson calls his fans crazy and obsessed and is ashamed of them, but he forgets they are his ONLY fans. It’s not like he has any fanbase outside of Twilight, where ordinary guys and girls respect him and go to his movies… DiCaprio can laugh at Titinic fans. Because he doesn’t need them – he has millions of other fans who respect him as actor and come to his movies. Look at Great Gatsby grosses.

    But Pattinson is spitting on himself basically. Those twihards crazy fans are the ONLY reason why people know who he is, why he met all those A-list celebrities on award shows, why he has million of dollars on his account, why he lives in rich house, why he flights first class. If there wasn’t those crazy fans then where would he be now? With that level on acting talent he shows he would be like some Chase Crawford or Penn Badgley – doing film no one hears about.

And yes, I know there are plenty that don’t care for him but and that’s okay – I don’t like Tom H or Benedict C., etc. but I never go to their articles and bash them – you know why because I’m not obsessed over them. The few who are posting over and over don’t like him for other more obvious reasons.

      • pippa says:

        Nail.on.the.head , suzeque.

      • Lark says:

        I kind of like Sparkles and Sulky. But I find it hilarious and ironic that the Sparkle stans are accusing anyone who is calling him out, even mild criticism, of being a Sulky stan…but when people get over the top about Sulky, to the point that when people who don’t even like her call them out, it’s oh no it’s not because they are a Sparkle stan. Pot, meet kettle.

      • Aud says:

        I don’t think Francie means that.
        A few comments on this site won’t ruin his career, but when actors of his caliber [and by that I mean an actor whose only basis to a career is via drooling teen females] start bitching and whining, and disrespecting their fans, then they don’t have much left considering they are mediocre to begin with in terms of their drama skill set.
        The films that he has been in post Twilight have bombed and I’m betting this latest vehicle will bomb as well.
        He just doesn’t really cut it.
        The other thing with actors that complain too much is that, like Mickey Rourke did, they offend producers and once that happens there’s little that can turn it around.

    • Carrie says:

      Yeah, the story was picked up by Huffing post, Daily Mail, etc. people are bashing him left and right. This time KStew is out of the picture so he has only himself to blame.

        Watch it get blown over pretty quickly. Unlike KStew he can talk himself out of a messy situation pretty charmingly. KStew is good at hiding behind her PR team.

        @Pippa gee, you make him sound like such a swell guy. He says and does shitty things but sweet talks his way out of them.

      • Carrie says:

        @pippa I don’t think so this time. He used to have KStew as a cover because people thought he was the better half of Robsten. Not anymore. Hitting security guard, ungrateful interviews, these things leave a lasting impression. Not a good impression, I am afraid.

      • kiki says:

  34. Drea says:

    I hope the next time an actress like Rooney Mara makes comments that belittle her previous work or fans of that work people will be as eager to defend her.

    I remember how this site criticized her for months after Mara said the plot of her SVU episode was silly.

    • Olivia says:

      @drea not that any actor should get away with trashing their previous work but svu didn’t make Rooney where as twilight made Rob. He blew his chance after Harry Potter and twilight gave him a second chance. I wonder if he would be talking this way if he and Kstew were still together. He sounds so bitter now about everything. Fans, previous work, lack of respect, guys wanting to beat him up, partying with random people, lashing out at the paps. Before he seemed chill and talked about bipeing anti Hollywood and being lowkey. This second break up seems to have affected him worse than the cheating.

      • Drea says:

        I agree that Pattinson’s comments are considerably more insulting than Rooney Mara’s. They are also worse than Kate Winslet’s comments that in her early 20s she “wasn’t really a very good actress”

        Yet Mara and Winslet were both criticized here for being disrespectful about their earlier work. But Pattinson is just a “sparkly kitten”? OK, then.

      • Leah says:

        I agree. I feel like people including the writers here let him get away with stuff they will criticise most other celebs. He can be disdainful about his fans and lash out at paps and yet he is just a “sparkly kitten” whereas rooney mara, kristen stewart and kanye west are somehow douchebags for the same behaviour.

    • Original A says:

      People give him a pass because he’s a white dude. Rooney was crucified for saying far less. This isn’t the first time either, I saw this on Buzzfeed and they had a related article which was a supercut of him trashing Twilight and being downright mean about Stephanie Meyer in one section. The thing was Meyer was correct but it was also cruel to say on camera. He’s almost 30 and the fangirls won’t stick around forever, and these interviews aren’t winning him any new fans.

  36. Joan says:

    I don’t like the Twilight movies and i’m not fan of Rob. But I don’t dislike him either. Though I don’t find him handsome and never understood how he got the part as the supposed perfect Edward. And even less the hype about him being attractive and all. But I’m amused at his comments about Twihards, which is understandable. I’ve tried some of his movies post-Twilight, but not convinced of his acting yet. Some are clearly not his fault though, like the awful Cosmopolis. The script was just too bad.

  37. MegG says:

    This sounds entitled. He should be lucky that people give him a nickname. I’m sure the 90% of out of work actors wouldn’t mind.

  38. Leah says:

    Rob doesn’t like his soccer mom fan base.. i bet he wants a cooler fan base .. He seems kind of desperate for cred these days.

  39. Janet says:

    I like the guy. But I think his career has peaked. He’s not that much of an actor and he’s made it this far based mainly on his looks. That’s starting to fade already and he doesn’t have anything to fall back on. Fortunately for him he’s made so much money he’ll never have to work again if he doesn’t want to. I’m getting the feeling he’s burned out of the whole Hollywood scene, so maybe he should just blow off acting altogether and get totally into music which he really loves, and which I’ve heard he’s very talented at.

    Hollywood has been filming movies in Toronto for decades. This is not a unique thing.
