His fellow Twilight castmates Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are presenting at Sunday’s Oscars, but will everyone’s favorite vamp Robert Pattinson be in attendance at Hollywood’s biggest night? Sorry to disappoint Twi-hards — it doesn’t look like R-Pattz is going to make it. According to Oscars co-producer Adam Shankman, however, Robert was definitely on the guest list, and it wasn’t for a lack of trying that the brooding, sexy actor won’t dazzle the carpet.
“I think the Pattinson community is going insane,” Adam Shankman told E! News last night at Vanity Fair‘s FEED Foundation and Hungry in America Project event. “All I want to say is, ‘He’s not available!’ ”
As his fans are well aware of, Rob is currently in NYC promoting his new romantic drama Remember Me, and kicked off his TV press junket for the film this morning on the Today Show.
So, why not just fly back to the West coast after promoting in the Big Apple?
Unfortunately, Rob has to jet right back to Europe to continue shooting Bel Ami.
“It’s not like we snubbed him,” Shankman told E! News. “It’s not like we said no to him. We asked him to be in the show. We tried really really hard to get him there. We were working on getting Summit to fly him in for the day, but eventually it became too much.”
Well at least we get our R-Pattz fill this week — his upcoming interviews:
