Robert Pattinson says his perfect date would have “chiseled abs”


Poor Robert Pattinson. Poor little Pattz. So beautiful, yet so haunted. Brooding but lovely. Hunted by the paparazzi, yet a willing participant in excessive press. A player, but unable to be with the girl he really wants. Pattz is an enigma, wrapped in a contradiction, covered in sparkles. Anyway, OK UK has a new interview with Pattz, and they ask him the questions everyone is dying to know. Is he single? Yes! What’s the deal with Kristen Stewart? “Friends.” And what qualities does he look for in a date? “Chiseled abs.” What’s that again?

Talking to OK! recently, [Pattinson] filled us in on his new found fame, explaining some of the stranger things that have started happening to him since becoming a worldwide phenomenon little under than a year ago: ‘A mother recently gave me her baby and asked me: “Can you please bite her head?”

‘People ambush me and try to figure out what hotel I’m staying at, as well as wanting to touch my hair. Everyone just screams and screams. It still feels surreal.’

OK: Did you have any idea what you were in store for when you signed up for Twilight?
RP: No way. I read the script and I barely even knew that they were books too. The only reason I went to the audition was to see Kristen, because I’d just seen Into The Wild.

OK: Are you saying you had a little bit of a crush on her?
RP: Of course! No, we are just very good friends.

OK: But there have been a lot of rumours about you two…
RP: I know – but honestly, we are just friends.

OK: Do you have a girlfriend?
RP: No, no. I am young, free and single.

OK: What do you look for in a lady?
RP: I like people being forward. Gosh, I don’t know. I like strong people, chiseled abs… I don’t know, I take what I can get!

OK: You have a huge amount of female fans, are you ever scared by them?
RP: I had no idea people could get so obsessed. But it’s not scary – it’s amazing. People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not. It’s kind of weird, but I still haven’t really had time to reflect on it because I’ve been doing stuff to do with Twilight and my other movies. I’m working constantly and I feel like I’m always surrounded by Twilight people – if not my work colleagues, then my fans. Right now it is fans – it’s a little bizarre if I’m honest.

OK: Have you had any weird fan experiences?
RP: One time there were these four girls, in Chicago, I think, and they had all scratched their necks until they bled and then when they came up to me they had these bleeding scabs. It was gross!

OK: What is the hardest part of being Edward Cullen?
RP: Probably trying to be scary when you’re supposed to be looking pretty at the same time.

OK: Does it worry you that you may always be cast as a heart-throb?
RP: I’m so surprised things have worked out the way they have, I just keep thinking the whole time, I don’t really have the right personality to fit in to that kind of role. I’m not really afraid of it, though, because I don’t really know how to play up that aspect of it.

OK: If you could live forever, like Edward Cullen, what would you do?
RP: Probably learn to speak French. Or I might spend three weeks straight with no sleep learning the piano. You’d get really good at stuff because you would have time to do everything.

OK: You have said that Edward is a little obsessive – are you surprised that girls think of Edward as the most perfect boyfriend ever?
RP: It’s weird, but girls always seem like that. Being a guy, you always just look at girls and think, why are you with that guy? With virtually anyone the nice guys always seem to come last. You always get weirdos like Edward who seem to attract women for some reason. If Edward wasn’t a fictional character and you met him in reality he is like one of those guys who would probably be an axe murderer or something.

Alright, I swooned a little when Pattz said his dream would be to learn the piano and learn French. It’s like he knows he’s just killing us with his romanticism. Next, he’ll probably say that he enjoys riding his trusty white steed and rescuing damsels in distress. And did anyone else find his comments about “nice guys” a little pointed? Like, “Hey, K-Stew, why aren’t you with a ‘nice guy’ like me, rather than your douchey boyfriend?” Man, I have to give it to K-Stew. She’s got Pattz coming and going.

    Robert is always sarcastic and his English humor is often missinterpreted.
    Don’t take everything serious that he says.
    By the way he plays piano and guitar quite amazingly.

    Bwahahahaha, I hope those girls are reading this. I hope they are embarrassed. They should be.

    Congrats for finally coming out Rob! :-)

    ‘Worldwide phenomenom’?

    I think the UK sighed a collective ‘meh’ when Twilight came to town. If it wasn’t for my insane love of celebrity gossip and this website, I don’t think I’d know this chap.

  5. Laura says:

    OMG Kaiser! Stop talking out of your ass and being a crazy Twihard and wishing for a hook-up of “Robsten”!!

    Her boyfriend, Michael Angarano is NOT douche! What reports have there been? He was a sweetheart during press for SKY HIGH (a Disney movie) and I always wondered why they were dating since he was always smiling!

  6. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Dude’s either latent or in the closet and handing out all this Harlequin romance pap because his agent/the studio say so; otherwise it would be the end for this little twi-chise.

  7. viper says:

    Is this his way of coming out?

  8. spy says:

    This obsession with the sexual orientation is a typical American notion.

    You mean guys like George Clooney are the representatives of straight men?

  9. KDRockstar says:

    Gaydar just went *bling*! No wonder Kristen “giggled” at the thought of any “chemistry” between them. Hee!

  10. Mollymuffin says:

    I wonder how many women are currently doing cruches on the floor beside their computer.

  11. BRANDI says:

    First of all, Rob said “chiseled ass”. He did have a long term girlfriend from age 18-21 who was a model so I would say she had a rocking body. Secondly, he said “play the piano” not learn the piano. Rob has been playing classical piano since age 3. Finally, if your going to rewrite interviews from somewhere else at least get the wording right. I don’t think it’s right for you to tear people down to lift yourself up. If you want to be respected then respect others.

  12. Nova says:

    I smell a Twihard….

    chiseled ass?? LOL…

  13. Ana says:

    I bet there are tons of girls working out like crazy right now.

    I get the feeling he is BI. He says he prefers people. “people being forward” and I like strong people, chiseled abs… I don’t know, I take what I can get!”

    I think the people being forward part is sarcasm since he is being attacked by women all the time.

  14. Kaiser says:


    “chisled ass”


  15. walker says:

    Ugh. I’m not going to analyze every word he uttered in this interview. I’m just going to think of how hot Edward is. And I’m going to practice hating on Kristen! You are so damn lucky girl! yeah I don’t think he meant “chiseled ass” either.

  16. ToldYouSo says:

    I don’t know what to think anymore! Is he gonna be one of those hollywood star in their old years that will come out with a “tell all biography” claiming : ” I don’t want to lie anymore, I want to be true to myself and to my fans and live a happy life with my partner” kind of crap! Save it R-Pattz! Come out already! We can take it! Well I don’t know for the twi-hard but I can! I totally agree with KDR, and Ana might be right too. HA Ha Ha!

  17. ToldYouSoAgain says:

    Why u care so much Brandi? Are you him? Now that would be fun! Chill girl! I don’t think RPattz would care so much if he reads any of these posts. So go head and relax! Noone cares anyway of what he really says. Would take the fun out of the story so leave it alone! LOL

  18. Carrie says:

    He is very attractive and of course the whole package he comes in is appealing. I just think that like Leo shows in Titanic and Orlando shows in Pirates of the Caribean and now Rob in Twilight, there are ALOT of women/girls out there craving this like of love.

    The question is … does this exist?

    and an 8 inch wang.
