It’s two days before Robert Pattinson will answer fan questions live on MTV and they’re counting down their top Rob moments. At number three is Rob’s reaction to walking the 2009 Oscar red carpet.
For the first time, Rob walked the red carpet of Oscars in 2009 not because he was nominated, but just because Twilight was that popular.
“It’s insane,” R-Pattz exclaimed to MTV News on the carpet. “When they first told me about this, I was like, ‘No, no, no, no, no, you’re joking’ — or ‘I’m going to have to do something really stupid like get gunged!’ ”
But Rob didn’t have to get “slimed” to be there like they do at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards!
Instead, Rob presented a montage of romantic films with Amanda Seyfried, which included Twilight.
“I’m so surprised that it worked out the way it did,” Rob told MTV News of being a Hollywood heartthrob. “I was thinking the whole time, ‘I don’t really have the personality to fit into that.’ I’m not really afraid of it. I don’t even know how to play up that. I don’t know if I could ever be cast in a heartthrob role, apart from Twilight, which I didn’t know was a heartthrob role.”
