Robert Pattinson says he’s single, jokes about looking gangly & girly

Robert Pattinson is still trying to convince us he’s just a lonely, sparkly, little tragic figure that needs us to believe in him. Paatz is claiming in a new interview that he doesn’t have a girlfriend, and he doesn’t know why. Aw… poor little Pattz. It’s like he thinks we don’t know he and Kristen spent a naughty weekenda t the Chateau Marmont. It’s like he doesn’t think we saw those pictures of him and Kristen making out earlier this week. Either that, or this interview was done before he and Kristen were back “on” – which could be the case.

Pattz also says that he doesn’t really have a type. Which means that he’s no longer putting “chiseled abs” on his “perfect date” list. He doesn’t have a celebrity crush, and he thinks the Twihard mothers and daughters are “funny”. Is he just playing with us and our unrealistic expectations of a romantic hero?

Good news, Robert Pattinson fans: He’s not dating anyone.

At least that’s what the Twilight star, who only days ago was seen getting cozy with costar Kristen Stewart, wants Britain’s Daily Mirror to believe. “I don’t have a girlfriend,” claims the apparently lonely actor. “I don’t know why.”

Currently filming Eclipse – the third in the vampire series – Pattinson, 23, appears surprised at this turn of events. “You always think you’re going to get more girls after you’ve made a movie and it never happens,” he insists.

“You sit there and you’re like, ‘I’m a big movie star and I want to go out with some models,’ but I don’t know why that doesn’t happen.”

For those hoping to snare him, Pattinson offers a tip: He doesn’t really “have a type.”

“It’s especially different in L.A. Most of the women there are actresses and by default that makes them a little bit nuts – not that that’s a bad thing,” he observes. “Whenever I get asked who my favorite celebrity crush is, I have no idea.”

When it comes to the attention he does manage to receive, Pattinson says, “Most of the girls are all pretty young, so it’s just kind of funny. But then you get the Twilight Mums who love you like mums! And you can take that too far. I mean, it could be ‘Edward breaks up Twilight family.’ ”

Frankly, the sex-symbol image surprises him. Originally he aimed to become a politician, though he did model, despite his lack of shape.

“I always looked like a girl up until a few years ago, and because I never did any sports or anything I was always kind of gangly,” he says. “I was never really a good model.

In fact, he concedes, “I was terrible at it. I wasn’t skinny enough to be a little waif and I didn’t want to work out to be a beefy guy, so I was always stuck between two things and so I never got any jobs.”

I’d argue that Pattz is still pretty girly. Yes, he has an awesome, sexy jawline – but some girls have that jawline too. He does have lovely shoulders though. The shoulders save him. They’re nice and broad, but with the cool-boy slouch. But here’s the thing – I’m a huge fan of his body type in men, so it’s not like I’m some impartial viewer. I love tall, gangly guys. I love broad, slouched shoulders. I love a good jawline. Sigh. I’m like a Twilight mum, only my dog is my kid.

    Love him. He’s modest and humble but this interview is from 2008.

    He looks like a wet rat.

  4. Renee says:

    What a bunch of bull crap. I just find it impossible to believe that he’s not up to his eyeballs in perfectley legal boobies.

    mmm… chest hair. Nice.

    I am just going to be honest, this guy sounds like a jerk to me. If he is with Kristen Stewart, he should just be honest. First, the cessation in media speculation whether or not they “are” or “aren’t” would probably relieve some of the ‘pressure’ that’s being put on the supposed couple. Secondly, his little quips about wanting to date “model(s),” actresses beings “nuts,” and not having a celebrity crush were a little harsh if he is in fact in a relationship with his co-star. They didn’t sound like comments that would be made by a caring boyfriend, or a good friend for that matter. Even if they are not dating, the comment about actresses being “nuts” will obviously be interpreted by some to be a jab at Kristen. Whether he is oblivious to this, or simply apathetic to the repercussions of his comments is unknown. Either way, not very nice. Finally, the photos of him when he is not “done up” as Edward are not attractive. He looks unkempt. Being a ‘big star’ is no excuse for failing to maintain personal hygiene. When I was a teen (not that long ago!!), guys still knew how to shave. So for all you twi-girls, find yourself a nicer (and better looking!) crush. This guy is not worth your crushin’ time. And if I were his costar, I would begin looking for a more considerate boyfriend. That’s just my “Mom opinion” on the whole thing!

    Were they actually photographed kissing or are you talking about the photos of them talking really closely during a loud concert? There is a difference. Those photos made it clear that they are at least good friends but weren’t definite on the romance.

    I think the only reason Rob isn’t dating any models is because he hasn’t asked. They don’t necessarily show up magically on your doorstep.

  8. Renee says:

    Well, I guess it’s really a matter of personal preference,and age has little to do with it. I’m 34,and I think he’s hot,especially when he’s unkempt. Personally,I can’t stand a guy who looks like he spent more time fixing his hair than I did. I’m not so crazy about the “Edward” look,especially that stupid-ass pea coat,but I love the flannel shirt and the crazy hair. As for his comments about actresses,I think he’s right-they are nuts,and all guys want to date models,so he’s seems like a normal,young guy to me.

    In ten years, we will all say, “Robert Pattin-who?”

  10. Kimberly says:

    no gf? probably because he has a hairy ass. ;)

  11. Katie says:

    Well, Gossip Cop just debunked the whole interview. Apparently, the “exclusive” interview may have never taken place. Doesn’t make him that much less icky in my book.:)


  12. lori says:

    They forgot “stupid-looking” and “dirty”. What a poseur. Who said “he will be forgotten in ten years”? Try two. The U.S. population has been dumbed down beyond belief!

  13. Beth says:

    Everyone is taking down that post, because Gossip Cop debunked it in two seconds flat. I like him, but it doesn’t really matter- shouldn’t you fact check!?

  14. Sarah says:

    I totally know Kellan Lutz is next to him in that pic, you should have posted pics of him too. Rob is pretty to look at but Kellan is hot. :)

    When Gossip Cop calls the shots for all the gossip sites, let me know. Until then, do the letters FO mean anything to you ?
