Robert Pattinson is always very complimentary of his Twilight co-star/rumored girlfriend Kristen Stewart, but now he’s gone and outdone himself.
“James Dean only made three movies, I like Giant with Elizabeth Taylor. But for me, the great icon of the ’60s, it’s Marlon Brando, with this kind of rage internalized, this duality between masculinity and tenderness hidden,” he explains. “I’m also a fan of gangster films with James Cagney and Paul Newman, especially in Cool Hand Luke. And among actresses, Isabelle Huppert and those I love the golden age of Hollywood as Ava Gardner, the arsonist, and Katharine Hepburn, whether class, so rough and so funny. Kristen Stewart, whom I admire… has a small side of Hepburn.”
And he means Katharine, not Audrey Hepburn.
“No, Katharine. I’m not a fan of Audrey,” he said. “I know girls of my generation [like her], but I find it a bit too girly.
And while Rob can pay all the compliments to Kristen, he won’t accept any for himself.
“Oh no! I’m no Don Juan,” he said. “This is something that is beyond me and is actually quite cool, all those fans who take pictures of me, these blogs, this buzz. Frankly, I have no sex appeal.”
“Just strolling in Los Angeles, London or Paris to find a bunch of young guys like me. I am not James Dean.”
We beg to differ, Rob.
