It’s a very good thing Robert Pattinson got to take a break from Twilight for a bit to film Water for Elephants because it sounds like the heartthrob is getting too stressed out by his celebrity status. He calls his rumored relationship with Kristen Stewart “traumatic,” says he admires Charlie Sheen… and doesn’t “like” Twilight?
Beware, Twi-hards. Rob’s upcoming April interview with Vanity Fair is rather sad… and a little concerning!
“I’m just so boring… I’m just so dried up… I’ve just kind of stopped doing everything,” Rob tells Vanity Fair on not being a good person to interview. “I never change the channel in my trailer. I just watch reruns of House of Payne and Two and a Half Men. I love Cops — I think it’s my favorite TV show. God… I sound like such a loser.”
And the past year has taken its toll on him!
“This thing with everyone knowing you … it’s weird, because people have this one-sided relationship where they look at your picture and feel they know you more than someone they actually know,” he says. “I don’t really know myself that well.”
And his rumored relationship with Kristen has also caused him some stress.
“It’s just very traumatic,” Rob explains of his rumored romance with co-star Kristen. “When this is over,” he says of Twilight, “the media will lose interest [in the relationship]. There’ll be nothing to say. It won’t fit into a headline anymore. It won’t fit into a template.”
But he admires Kristen and has for a long time.
“Kristen is very focused on being an actress. I mean, that’s what she is — she’s an actress. Whereas I — I just don’t really know.” he shares. “She’s cool. Even before I knew her I thought she was a really good actress. Like, I saw Into the Wild, and I thought she was really good in that. I still think there are very few girls in her class that are as good as she is.”
And he also apparently admires Charlie and his “little escapades,” saying, “I like crazy people who don’t give a f**k.”
“There’s nothing you can do about it. That’s the way it is,” R-Pattz says of how Twilight changed his life. “But it is weird being part of that, kind of representing something you don’t particularly like … God. I just really headbutted it.”
But at least he got to film Water for Elephants this year for a change and found something he did like.
“She was the best actor I ever worked with in my life,” he says of working with the elephant. “I cried when the elephant was wrapped. I never cried when anyone else was wrapped [completed shooting].”
