Robert Pattinson smells

oscars vanity fair 7 230209
Robert Pattinson is working on a new film called Memoirs, about a pair of star-crossed lovers who are trying to deal with family tragedies. Rather similar to his biggest hit Twilight, which was billed as being a Romeo and Juliet with vampires movie. The Memoirs film is being re-written by Jenny Lumers, who wrote the critically acclaimed Rachel Getting Married, so it seems like a great opportunity for Rob. If this latest rumor is to be believed, he may be limiting his future opportunities by not showering enough though. On set sources report that he smells.

E! is reporting from a source on the “New Moon” set that Robert Pattinson has a dirty little secret.

“He stinks. I mean, it’s awful. He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy,” dishes someone who wants to remain nameless but who reportedly toils in very close quarters with the Pattz Man. “He completely reeks.”

Los Angeles Times

My teenage sisters love the Twilight franchise, and when the DVD was released last week they had a little party, where a bunch of girls sat around wearing movie themed t-shirts bought from the local version of Hot Topic and gushing. Suddenly dad’s Volvo is cool, which I never believed would happen ever. I can’t get over how huge this movie is. Because of this the sequel New Moon will come out in November of this year, with Eclipse to be released in the summer of 2010.

As far as the not showering thing goes, possibly Rob doesn’t wash his hair much to get that dirty slept in look he has. The girls watching the DVD were calling it ‘freshly shagged’ hair. I’m not sure what kind of product you could use to get that look, I think it needs to be a little greasy to get that texture.

Robert Pattinson is said to be the next big thing, and in true Hollywood style is rumored to be dating his co-star, but since most of his fans are tweenies it’s a good idea to break out into a new film not aimed at children. Rob’s most significant past roles were Cedric Diggery in the Harry Potter films and a small part in Vanity Fair with Reese Witherspoon.

Robert Pattinson is shown at the Academy Awards and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on 2/22/09. Credit:

    Yeah……so…….I’d still go it!

  3. j. ferber says:

    I’ve never seen him act, but that smoldering, arrogant thing he has going reminds me of a young Sir Laurence Olivier in Wuthering Heights. If he can act, I think Heathcliff would be a great role for him.

  4. crab says:

    He looks like he’d smell! He doesn’t do a thing for me!

  5. Anna says:

    How twisted am I to think I’d still want to have a roll the hay with him? Very twisted, I know. I can’t help it, I totally love this actor (and I’m 23). I suppose if this is true, then maybe I’m lucky computer screens don’t transport smells but still.
    To be honest though, it sounds more like some jealous cast/crew member. If this were true, we’d have heard other, similar reports by know. I smell a rat and call BS on this one. 🙂

  6. Enonymous says:

    He does not appeal to me because he seems very likely to fall into the category of those people who are good looking when they are young but unfortunately become way fug when older. When he is in his late 30s/40s, his looks will be gone, similar to Jason Patric from The Lost Boys.

  7. Anna says:

    *by now

    of course 🙂

  8. Jess says:

    Stinky or not, he’s HOT!

  9. becca says:

    Actually I bet he really does smell. He smokes like a chimney, like 75% of the cast.

  10. nanster says:

    crab – I’m with you.

  11. Amelia says:

    someone PLEASE teach this guy how to tweese his eyebrows!

  12. twilightfan223 says:

    i bet that is a lie.

  13. Holly says:

    His costars have said he smells fine. And he said he showers. He just doesn’t always wash his hair. Things are different in Europe and Great Britain than they are here. We’re like hygiene freaks here in the States. And we waste a LOT of water, too. Something to think about when the planet is in an ecological turmoil.

    Cut the man some slack. He’s hot and the look works for him. His hair looks great.

    What’s more important is this: He’s a nice person and a fantastic actor. A true artist, not just eye-candy. Can’t wait for How To Be and Little Ashes! People will see how great he is then. Watch the trailers and you’ll get a feel. This young man is amazing. More power to him for his career and his life!

  14. Dingles says:

    I don’t think people give this guy enough credit. I kind of get a Heath Ledger vibe off him…he’s self-deprecating and funny, and he’s become famous for a lightweight film aimed at teens…but he does have that charisma and is doing his best to take on challenging roles with substance.

    If anyone’s ever seen/read his interviews about Twilight, it’s obvious that he KNOWS it’s fluff and the whole franchise is ridiculous. But it’s a huge break for him and I think he was very smart to accept the Edward role. I’m looking forward to see what all he can do.

    On topic, I don’t care if he showers twice a week. I would wreck that.

  15. HalfBloodPrincess says:

    It’s some jealous crew member snipping. You’d stink too if you were ‘getting’ as much as this cutie is 🙂

  16. nolongerhaydenfan says:

    LOL i knew it!!!! i always knew that was grease in his hair not too much hair cream…i thought he was so hot in Harry Potter but now hes like Oscar the Grouch (looks, not the personality)

  17. Hieronymus Grex says:

    Shower, shave, and comb your hair, little emo boy.

  18. Annie says:

    He’s a guy.

    Try living with a bunch of dudes, and see how many of them actually shower regularly.

    Let me tell ya, the answer is not many of them. 😛

  19. becca says:

    I have no doubt that he showers. I bet he said that he didn’t because he was wondering if he could say literally anything and his legion of brain-dead fangirls would STILL drool. And he was right. I’ll never forget these two interviews I saw of him. One was where I honestly think he was smoking something before he went in and proceeded to tell this bat-crazy story of a Bhudda that appeared to him in his head and gave him all of the answers of a geography test he was taking that he didn’t study for at all. Another one was where he was in the MTV Studios and the interviewer asked him what his next project was. How does he respond? “Uh, well…I clipped my toenails today. I’m trying to figure out how to pay this parking ticket I have….” I nearly died laughing.

    But he’s still gonna smell from being a chimney smoker. Blah.

  20. SINI29 says:

    HATERS,stop hating on Robert…. Why do people like to make things up? So what, even if it were true, just spray him down with some Febreeze or Renuzit & he’ll be good as clean…I don’t care I still love him…

  21. monkey89 says:

    I think its a lie! just look at his face…this guy is freakin hot! if its true then so what. That’s his problem. I think its just someone that is jealous crew member and they need to stop it. Great Job in Twilight Robert! cant wait for the next one! Also can wait for Little Ashes! Gonna be able to see some skin there! *wink Wink*

  22. Sarah says:

    so what if he smells
    hes still HOT AS HELL!!!!!!

    but smelliness is kinda a turn off

  23. kim says:

    Leave him alone – he is talented, funny and extremely sexy! he says things in interviews as a joke and everyone takes it seriously – he admits to doing it. As for the crew member – it was probably a joke too following on in Rob fashion

  24. foxyb says:

    I’d hit that! 😀

  25. I Choose Me says:

    OH PUHLEEZE! Many online commenters have posited that he looks like he smells because of how his hair looks (personally I think that’s gel not grease) and the scruffy facial hair thing he’s got going on. Cue story from “on-set source” (My ASS) that he smells. He was Cedric Diggory for crying out loud. I think if he had a hygiene problem we would have heard about it BEFORE now.

  26. Bells says:

    I’m so tired of these freaking fake stories about RObert. They must just be having a slow news day, so they need to make some juicy crap up about him. I really wish they’d stop trying to screw up his fan base.

  27. HMC says:

    this is so funny. Rob strikes me as a kind of Colin Farrell in that he doesn’t really care if people like him & he’ll say whatever he likes just cos he can & people will react to it. He probably laughs himself stupid at all the media attention this kind of stuff gets. Ya, if he smelled bad, we would have known ages ago already. I’m w/you foxyb – I’d hit that too. 🙂

  28. lil bit says:

    bull shit! someone made that crap up because they’re jealous of how totally awesome he is. thet didn’t want anyone to know their name because they know its not true and just don’t want anyone to call them on it. besides he probably makes so much money he could pay someone to wash him if he wanted

  29. Glenda says:

    You know, I remember a time when they said the same thing about brad pitt… people will always have something bad to say about others, and right now Mr. Pattinson happens to be a HUGE target… And for the record, I wouldn’t kick him out of my bed… Gay, or not, the dude is FINE!!!

  30. Musey says:

    I’ll always have a soft spot for RPattz, because I think he’s hilarious, I adore his self-deprecating cuteness, and I love that he completely gets what a creepy unromantic stalker his character is. But the dude *does* look like he’s rocking some serious BO.

    Whether he showers or not, though, I have to say, this headline made me giggle uncontrollably. So simple, so brilliant. Thanks, Helen!

  31. sarahdb says:

    Is he gay? Is every guy in Hollywood gay? I get more of a drug problem vibe from him…

  32. Amber says:

    This is so rediculous! He makes one joking comment about his hair and the stories grow into him not showering? If you have watched any of his interviews you know how sarcastic he is ALL the time. And maybe he doesn’t wash his hair everyday. He even said he always showers but not always his hair. You’re not suppossed to, it’s not healthy for your hair. No one with the crazy, messy sexy hair thing does. I don’t htink he would be where he is today if he really did stink. There is no “source” and we all know it.

    Rob, your hair rocks and you are an awesome person. We all still love you!

  33. Robertfan!!! says:

    You know what who cares!!!People just keep your mouths shut about him thats his business if you have a comment about him keep it to yourselfs thats emberssing to him and think how he feels about that.Poor Robert:[.I love his work

  34. Robertfan!!! says:

    I LOve you Robert keep up the Great work!!:]

  35. cgarriga5 says:

    Rob is so self-conscious he probably started the rumor himself that he doesn’t shower just to get the whole papparazzi crows focusing on something beside his insanely hot looks and body. Besides with a mother and 2 older sisters hovering over the baby and only boy of the family do you honestly believe he wasn’t taught good hygeine? Some people are idiots in what they will believe – just because a “source” reports it. LOL hahaha

  36. skd1873 says:

    I only pray that this guy makes it through the next 3 movies with his sanity! It must be awful to live in a fishbowl. I admire his work and his sense of humor about the drastic turn his life has taken.

  37. Candy says:

    Not afraid. I got washclothes papi.

  38. Max says:

    As a european citizen I feel offended by holly’s comment.

    It implies that we smell and roll around in our own dirt.

  39. Liz says:

    Okay you know what who cares if he doesn’t shower. All those people out there who believe this crap is crazy! I mean yeah there have been a LOT of rummors that Robert doesn’t shower, but thats just it they’re RUMMORS! okay people. Plus like some said, he comes from Great Britain he doesn’t come from America. We’re not him, we don’t know what he does unless someone has mythical powers and is able to read minds or tell the future! So lay off a little, okay cut him some slack he’s a great actor and he’s just doing his job!

  40. Liz says:

    Okay plus who cares if he smokes! Almost half of the population in america smokes! Its his right to smoke, and yeah its your right to state what you think about smokers. and thats okay, but smoking doesn’t always make you smell,,,, what am i saying WHO CARES!

  41. ricca says:

    i mean come on if he stinks well he stinks but still the guy is smokin hot u can not deiny that if he really does stink someone should tell him alone not on the internet i mean come on EMBARRASING hes still a person i mean seriously!

  42. aneehs says:

    Bah…I’d love him…join him for a nice warm shower and love him to death…Personally I don’t really care for the Edward Cullen character…watching his interviews and things of that nature is what draws me to him. I really like his quirky personality. As for the smoking and drinking thing … who gives a crap.. But that’s just me.

  43. Glenda says:


    I do not know if Mr. Pattinson is gay, just another rumor going around. I was just saying that I didn’t care if he was, he is still a great actor and great eye candy.

    I also want to state that with all the Twlight interviews and such he was doing maybe he was to tired to do anything but sleep when he got some peace. Most of the time he looks clean to me. But I don’t think I will ever be lucky enough to get close enough to him to smell him.


    Best of luck to Mr. Pattinson

    Don’t be dishearted by all the rumors

    You are a great actor

  44. Fiona says:

    Smelling or not, he could eat crackers in my bed!!!He is Sublime!!!

  45. Catherine says:


    You are very talented and I look forward to the rest of the Twilight sequels. Don’t take people’s comments seriously. Putting yourself in the spotlight would do that and people are really judgmental. Keep up the good work though. You really brought Edward to life!! I have to say that I am a little obsessed with that fact. Now I have a face with the character in the novel. Thanks for that!!


  46. Ben says:

    Come on guys, this rumor is actually real. Robert went on a late night show and said:

    “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.”

    So clearly this is true, and its pretty gross.

  47. peaches says:

    I have to admit I wanted Rob to have that Edward look in real life. Truth is he’s a regular guy who’s somewhat embarrassed by the tweezing, hair style, makeup of the character. He’s doing the scruffy guy in real life, whether it’s a hiding tactic or just his way, and he’s hounded constantly. He’s the luckiest guy and the unluckiest guy in the world at the same time. It’s a lot to handle. He’s an introvert, kind of unique for an actor. It is sad that people are so happy being critical. If most of them were in the same place they’d be bedridden or committed at the comments.
    He needs to accept his gifts and laugh at the rest of the world.

  48. joy says:

    Yes heard it and seen it on E hollywood that he reeks and the casting crew of New Moon is making complaints of what the smell was. To me, he I still like the guy. My question is, the movie Little Ashes he stars a role in portrays gay men…now do u think it’s gonna kinda blow the females off and kinda wonder if he may be gay curious after that??? I just think he should have rejected the whole role…it did kinda blow me off. I think Pattinson is hot w/vampire make up, other than that…he looks alright.

  49. Caroline says:

    ENOUGH WITH THE STINK RUMORS! Whoever spread these rumors is a moron. Don’t believe anything unless it comes straight from Rob himself.

    Here is an interview with Rob denying the stench rumors:

  50. Glenda says:


    Very well put… I totally agree…



    The whole “he is gay” is already out there, but I as a fan could care less if he is or not. And I believe that if you are a “true” fan of Mr. Pattinson’s it wouldn’t matter to you either… To be put off by something like that shows just how close minded this world still is…

    I love Mr. Pattinson for what he brings to the big screen… I don’t hold false hope that I will ever meet him and he fall in love with me…

  51. cathy says:

    Wow, whoever this anonymous source who started this crap is, they need to get a life.

  52. Nancy says:

    I have to agree with Dingles… Robs self-deprecating humor has made me laugh out loud many times… How cute is THAT!?! Like I’ve said before, if this is the worse thing people can find to say about Rob then I guess he’s a pretty decent guy…

  53. madison says:

    he probebly dose smell, but hes too cute in the twilight movie!!! 🙂

  54. molly says:

    i personally think that the onley resone people are talking crap about robert pattenson are because thay have no life and need to get one.i dont think hes smells crapy,or drinks,or smokes….etc.hes just an actore thay do that to everyone of the actores that stare in there own movie (exept britney speares she really dose that stuff :))

  55. Amanda Hiaasen says:

    I read the GQ article today about him and it mentions something about this poor hygiene rumor. I laughed. I think it’s silly for us all to get so worked up about what the media says; Pattinson is popular, people are going to tear him apart. It’s up to us to learn the difference between petty “Hot” cover titles and the truth, even if the latter is far harder. I think it’s neat that he claims to search for the things people say about him—normal people, not those paid to say the most catchy things—and contradicts the way many stars attempt to ignore the tabloids. Masochistic narcissist indeed!

    He’s such a lovely person, his talents aside. His flaws and personality quirks make him absolutely loveable, as a person, not some dreamy star that we all wish we could take home to mom and dad. I couldn’t imagine never having privacy.. it would be mind numbing and probably send me over the edge into a nervous panic attack whenever I was forced to go out of my house.

    Give him some slack and stop believing everything some paid off “source” has to say. Or don’t, and move on to some other poor celebrity you’re going to eventually hear rumors about, too.

  56. Kiki S. says:

    Word of advice, Don’t listn to what other people say! It’s just their opinion, not yours. You go with what you think! PLUS, you are totally hot in the twilight movie. you cares if ya stink your HOT!

  57. Kiki S. says:


  58. sandy says:

    gosh! don’t ya wish people would stop try’n to screw up other peoples lives{by say’n they stink!}
    If i were robert i laugh and say who cares if i stink i’ll always be hotter than you!

  59. lula says:

    i just heard robert pattinson hates kids you’ll see on youtube!

  60. erin says:

    get a life. seriously. i think all the people who want to make fun of him are just jealous. so he may smell a little… he can kick your ass talent wise any day. He’s intelligent and different, why should he want to be like all the rest of you. i agree with holly, get over it!

  61. Kayla says:

    craziest sex dream about him last night bahahaha.

  62. lol says:

    it is propally a rumor!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EOPLE JUST LIKE 2 START GOSSSIP

  63. Crystal C says:

    People just need to back the hell off this guy. And its not just teenie boppers who are fans. Rob has taken a character and turned him into a legend. Thats a great thing. He should be proud. Really could you see anyone else playing his character? As for all the rumors well… He does work with a bunch of teenagers.. Isnt that what they do.. Run their mouths.

  64. ME says:

    He’s a guy and guys have a different prespective of cleanliness. Just because he doesn’t wash his hair doesn’t mean a thing. As to anyone else playing this role well when I read the books I invisioned Hayden Christensen being Edward simply because he had already played a role where he was self contained and had a forbidden love interest that he couldn’t live without. Where he later married and had kids with in secret. But I still think that Robert did an awesome job playing Edward. He’s a genually good looking guy and is very talented as well. Besides working with a young crowd only brings out animosity amoung the group, especially when one actor is getting most of the attention. So Robert, Rock on. For those who like to run their mouths go sit in a corner and have a nice warm cup of SHUT THE HELL UP for once.

  65. jay says:

    can you wait to see new moon! it looks so great. see the trailer.

  66. Rockie says:

    I think that he’s a very good actor, and all you haters need to leave him be. As for the whole Robert Pattinson smells non-sense people need to get a life who cares if he doesnt showers everyday it might not be the cleanest thing but who cares, give the guy a break.

  67. Rachel says:

    Hurm.. it does seem that the crew members are Jelouse of him.. who wouldnt!

    And ahem. England have just the same amount of hygiene freakyness as The US Thank You Very Much 😛 Not just an English thing! We dont smell 🙂

    Ugh what cant they leave Rob alone,, hes still HOT no matter if he smells!
    Andd.. if he did smell so bad, the cast members wouldnt want him!, especially Kristen, she wouldnt want to be around him

  68. Grace says:

    I doubt very much that this is true.If it was it would have been picked up and talked about way before then.
    If i was Rob i would pissing myself laughing right now. And for someone to make a rumor this stupid about you, it must mean your pretty big in showbiz. 😛

  69. pooooooooooooooop says:

  70. adrien says:

I wish people would just stop mistreating him he doesn’t deserve that. I love him if he smells or not (which I know he doesn’t smell)!!!!

  78. pressure washing is an ecellent way to increase curb appeal

  79. Bryana says:

    He’s adorable. And if there was any inkling of truth to this (yeah right), there’s millions of women that would happily offer to bathe him! Me first! I’ll put an ashtray in the shower for you. Ha!
