The stars cutest moments at the Cannes Film Festival.
Fun fact guys: before he became a world renowned heartthrob, Robert Pattinson wanted to be a rapper.

I am serious about this. And if you caught him on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, you would know that. But if you didn’t happen to watch it, fear not! Because that’s what I’m here for.

Before we continue, can we just quickly thank the gossip gods for giving us so much Pattinson in recent weeks as he promotes The Rover? He is looking mighty fine on this press tour. 

Now back to rapping. Seth got Robert to admit that starting at the age of 14, he wanted to be a rapper. “100 percent,” Rob responded. “I still kind of do. I was Big Tub, that was my rap name.” I’ll let you watch the video to find out where the name Big Tub comes from.

But just know he was “Big Tub and the Tabby Cats.” Umm, I would definitely listen to his rap music. Yo Rob! Get on that! What the video of his rap revelations above, then check out the video below to find out the meanest trick his older sister’s played on him. I really love this guy.
