There are some things that even the chillest of actors cannot do, as was the case with Robert Pattinson photoshoot for French Premiere magazine. According to Radar Online, Pattinson was game for a racy theme, but had reservations when things took a turn towards uncomfytown.
“Rob was asked to pose bare chested with a sexy blonde model, who happened to be topless as well,” a source on set told the online tabloid. ”He did his best Blue Steel for the camera as the girl snaked all over his body, nibbling his earlobes, kissing his face and neck and pressing her bare boobs against him, but you could see he was uncomfortable with it.
“Rob was really torn — because the girl was stunning and he’s a bit of a cad — he was definitely having a really good time being half naked with a hot blonde with her boobs out, but then he seemed to get all nervous and started worrying that it was just going too far.”
Things got too weird for the Cosmopolis star, who had to put a little distance between himself and the set.
“Toward the end of the shot the photographer instructed the model to lick Rob’s nipples! That was the kiss of death — Rob called cut and went in his dressing room and made a phone call. But, he did come back a few minutes later to finish off the photo session, so everyone thought it was all good.”
Before you rush to the nearest international newsstand, Pattinson had the offending pics pulled from the issue.
UPDATE: We are saddened to report that Gossip Cop debunked this story. Bad, RadarOnline, bad.
