Robert Pattinson raves about sheet masks & ASAP Rocky’s ‘serious style’

I’ve really just fallen in love with Robert Pattinson recently. It has come and gone a few times over the years, depending on what he’s up to and depending on the quality of his interviews. Lately, his interviews have been amazing and funny and I feel like he’s just relaxed so much. This is “the real Bobby Sparkles,” let’s say that. He’s funny and weird and beautiful and kind of dumb. A big, beautiful idiot. Robert has given yet another interview to support his Dior Homme contract, this time to British GQ. You can read the full piece here. Some highlights:

He’s worked with Dior since 2012: “I never thought we would be doing it for this long… No one was really working with brands on such a big level when I was approached. That said, it’s been incredible and I’ve worked with directors that I wanted to do movies with anyway. I’ve been able to work with Jonathan Alric and Romain Gavras.”

He likes that Dior makes him take chances: “If I was choosing to wear clothes myself, I don’t think I would have gone in a lot the directions that I have ended up going in with Dior and people like Kim Jones. I never would have thought I would be wearing chiffon, silk and satin. I wore this tuxedo, which had basketball shorts last year – never would have imagined that!”

His worst style moment: The 2005 premiere of Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire. “I was wearing leather trousers with these cowboy boots and a velvet jacket. I mean, it literally looked like a kid had gone into a dressing-up box.”

He wishes he could dress like ASAP Rocky: “I wish I could dress like A$AP Rocky, he just has serious style. We have been to quite a few different fittings together and I will see the craziest thing and really want to wear it, but look like a total moron. Then we will go to the show and I will see Rocky in it and be like, ‘Jesus Christ, you can literally wear anything!’”

His favorite kicks: Pattinson has a penchant for sold-out Palace Skateboards x Adidas Originals trainers; he gets his team to source them on Ebay and Depop. “A fresh pair of them only comes up every eight months or so. I had a pair of them stolen off me once, but I saw them on Ebay and I know I bought them back off the thief. I have alerts on when they’re being sold; I’ll soon own every pair in existence.”

He’s starting to care more about skincare: “As I am getting older I’m definitely noticing things. I used to not do anything at all, up until a few years ago, and I can definitely see the difference [in my face now], especially if I am travelling a lot.” Pattinson’s secret to giving his skin that youthful glow? “It’s very American Psycho, but those sheet masks make a massive difference. I’m fully committed and I even put an eye mask on over the top too. Try it!”

Life on the road: “Self-care is important. I really appreciate coming home even though it’s only for a few days, just to give my skin and body a rest.”

I looked up those Adidas sneakers and I don’t get why they’re a big deal? Clearly, I’m not a sneakerhead and I don’t even think Adidas is the go-to label for sneakerheads, but maybe I’m wrong. The collab was from 2015, so it’s not like it’s super-vintage or anything. Also: I love that Rob is talking about skincare and that he’s doing face masks. I feel like his model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse might be involved somehow?

Here’s the latest Dior Homme fragrance commercial. I love how dumb and pretty he is in this.

    Okay, he’s kind of winning me over here…

  2. Werq says:

    I love his unusual beauty, but I can understand why some think he’s unattractive.

  3. sunny says:

    He is a big, beautiful, well-meaning dummy. I also love how much he actually loves cinema and how bold and risky his artistic choices continue to be.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    I haven’t recovered from The Lighthouse yet.

  5. CoffeeNowChampsLater says:

    Well that made me feel old. Edward Cullen using face cream sealed it.

  6. Cat says:

    He’s really hot to me. Looking forward to Batman.

  7. Joan Callamezzo says:

    I think he has a lot of range as an actor, he’s got some musical talent and he’s so pretty. I look forward to seeing his take on Batman, although I am tired of Batman.

  8. Guest says:

    Oh Rob ❤

    I’m so happy with how his career has turned out. It sucks batman is going to be delayed though.

  9. Lucy says:

    He’s so cute and sweet. Is he still with Suki, though? I thought that had ended ages ago.

    • Anname says:

      Suki was with him for the celebration dinner after the Dior show in Paris in January. He’s been deep in filming Batman since. I am thinking they are spending quarantine together, but who knows.

  10. Evergreen says:

    Robert Pattinson is far from dumb lol.

    • Anname says:

      Agree – he’s super goofy, but not unintelligent/dumb. He has pretty esoteric tastes, and probably overthinks things quite a bit too. But he always seems to be able to find the joy and amusement in life, and his interviews reflect that.

  11. Caroline says:

    I forced myself to rewatch Twilight series and so hilariously bad but still heartbreaking how much he actually loved her and it shows. Yes quarantine is getting to me lol.

    Huh, he does nothing for me.
