Robert Pattinson Over This Fame Thing Already

December 19th, 2008 // 30 Comments

All the attention being focused on Twilight star Robert Pattinson came as a shock to the 22-year-old actor, who admitted to breaking down during the promotional tour.

It was the screams of the thousands of fans that overwhelmed RPattz to the point of tears. He confesses, “Every single time I get so nervous and have cold sweats–I doubt that I am ready. I started crying in Italy, completely involuntarily.”

Yeah, he’s in for a rough ride there because there are still two more Twilight movies (New Moon and Eclipse) that he’s going to have to style his hair into a frenzy for promotional tours. He better hope he gets cast in that Pirates of the Caribbean movie so that he can befriend Johnny Depp and get an invitation to join him on Fuck Off Island.

Check out all the photos of Robert Pattinson in the gallery!

    I think that he is gay. Sincerely, I really think.

  2. kate

    mann. i’d break down so quickly if fame came to me that fast. i’m paranoid/insecure enough. i wish i could like save him lmao.

  3. LG

    WOW, that really explains alot. I noticed a different in his appearance from Italy onwards. He’s fairly introverted and self conscious…this is hard for him. And for a guy to be vulnerable… yah..keeper.

  4. mackenzie

    yo i relate to his personality so well .i’d breakkk if i was so famous so fast. i got like the lowest self-esteem & try to hide it aha .i hate all the bimbos screamin’ over him.

  5. Rachel

    I feel for him but honestly he should have known what he was getting into when he signed up to play Edward. : /

  6. yashi

    yeah i really feel bad for rob and kristen , they r both overwhelmed by the sudden fame , people think that being famous is something so easy and enjoyable 4 the famous person but really its not

    its like the song by the pussycatdolls
    “be carefull what u wish 4 cause u just might get it ” and they both got it!!!!, without actually wishing 4 it

    they just got to go with the flow and hope that things dont get too crazy

    and thank God that there are only 4 books and not seven

    hopefully they will not be recognized 4 playing edward and bella 4 the rest of their lives they r the type that will move on to something better

    The posters above must be the dumbest people on earth as well as overweight females.

  8. deka

    hope he has a good excuse
    this type of behavior could hurt his career

  9. Kate

    lol. bobby, i concur.

  10. ALLEN

    Awwww he obviously needs someone to comfort him through this pressure.

    CORRECTION! There are THREE more Twilight movies.

  11. Nicky

    Yes there are three more books but they are only signed on for two more movies. Apparently when they started filming Twilight the fourth book wasn’t out yet.

  12. flossy

    I dont understand what he’s so unhappy about…he most likely gets paid more than I will see in my lifetime, to float about and “act”, I mean c’mon people, he’s not saving lives here!

  13. e.

    He’s getting all this attention for brooding and striking poses that flutter female hearts while wearing a ton of makeup and being styled to look completely different than he does in real life. People are even willing to listen to his “music,” which is actually pretty painful.

    I really do feel bad for him, this seems like a lot to live up to. If he was super talented, this would be the world’s biggest break for him. But he’s not. So I’m sure the attention is stressful rather than pleasant.

    (I wish he’d groom his brows).

  14. dawn

    Eh, I kinda feel bad for the guy. Neither him nor Kristen realized how crazy Twilight fans were and thought they were doing a small, cult vampire movie. It can’t be easy to suddenly have people screaming at you wherever you go.

    I personally think he has potential. He has Little Ashes coming out in March where he plays Salvador Dali. I think that’ll be a make-or-break for his acting career. People have been saying: either he’ll be the next Leo…or the next Orlando Bloom. We’ll see.

  15. Jess

    Oh, Orlando Bloom isn’t that bad but I guess next to Leonardo Dicaprio you can’t compete. He’s been making some really good movies lately so I’ll forget he ever made Titanic.

  16. eel

    WTF you talking about, titanic was a great movie, a classic.

    eh,im looking foward to Salvador Dali though. i dont think he’s a bad actor. hope the movies does well.

  17. noname

    First of all… I think that you are really unfair, he doesn’t plan for it to happen… and I’m pretty sure that it was embarrasing enought for him without those comments,
    second, I think that it’s extremly root to write such a thing about someone who did a very well job in the movie ( that’s what he get payed for) and I’m glad that he’ll do the next to and hopefully the fourth one too.
    and last but not least, it’s no nessecary to say mean things about Johnny Depp to verbal harm Rob.

  18. Sarah

    Hey people give the guy a break OK like he has a lot on his plate and some people make movies cause they enjoy doing it not everyone does it for the the attention…. so he has a rough time dealing with stress who wouldn’t lets be honest here… I think he’s a great actor no matter what movie he’s in but first and foremost he is a person after all….Rob could be the next James Dean..and for those who don’t know who that is look it up…He is well on his way…

  19. no name

    Hey come on give him a break, he didnt know how big twilight was when he auditioned, he hadn’t even read the books at that point, and itd be daunting for anyone to have to suddenly deal with screaming fans everywhere you go
    plus he is a good actor and just because he doesnt deal that well with public appearances doesnt mean everyone can just insult him, infact isnt it a good thing that fame isnt going to his head?
    that said i dont think his singing voice is that great, talking sure but not singing… should stick to acting i reckon

  20. JOan

    I think his performance in twilight is no good, even Kristen is better than him. I doubt whether he has talented. The main reason for his fame is the handsome face.

  21. fable

    Wow. Twilight was a genuinely terrible film and would’ve flopped completely had it not been for the cult-like following of thousands of teenagers…poor kid… I’m not exactly impressed by his acting but I do feel bad for the kid. It has to be hard enough to catapult to fame, but to do it with such a psychotic following of screeching, oversexed adolescents who are projecting their novel-based fantasies on you?

    Reason enough to indulge in heavy drug use, right there.

  22. cailynn

    ahaa yo fable’s a funny kiddo.

  23. Anne

    I think he is a very wonderful actor. I have a lot of respect for him. for him to openly admit to have a break down, you know what. that says that hes only human. Good for you Rob!

  24. Shae

    Yeahhh i dont blame him for breaking down with all the stupid immature girls throwing theirs at him all the time thinkin they actully have a chance with him….

    Grow the hell up hes a human being not a peice of meattt.

    Yesss he is beautiful but he deservs respect and privacy. hes new at the celeb thing so give him a fukkin break, and give him some air ppl

    I GIVE MY LOVE TO ROBB AND ALL THE AMAZING THINGS HE DOES GOOD LUCK AND I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT.

  25. no mane

    the only reason you ppl think his acting is no good is because your unhappy with your own lifes and have to bring down others…

    Poor you…

    Props to rob for being a strong person.

  26. Stefy

    it’s so sad how he got completely transformed after he played in twilight. He looked so hot when he was in the movie but now he just looks like a lonely drug addict

    Imagine it for a sec. You make a movie. You walk out onto the promo platform. Everyone screams at you. People follow you around, people stalk you. You get sackfuls of mail, you can’t go out without having your stylists make every bit of you look fantastic, and suddenly you can’t be a NORMAL person. You can’t stop at the cinema, hang around shopping, chill, have friends, be married because everyone is scrutinizing everything. You can’t look tired or else stories like these crop up; you can’t say you’re tired because people talk. You can’t trust your friends, every girl becomes a gold digger.

    Have you never had that feeling when you sign up for something, and it’s not what you think it’s going to be? Sheez, I really feel for him. He needs to take a break where the papparazzi can’t reach him, where girls can’t act like fools around him, where he can trust his mates not to spill their guts for cash, where he can chill.

    Robert, I suggest that you head off to a Middle Eastern country of your choice, clad head to toe in the abaya, with a niqab (face veil) on. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY will be able to find you and you can just chill for a bit.
    I’m from there and trust me, you won’t be recognisable.

    My tip to you if you ever read this.

    And I hope to God the haters never get put in a position like this young man, you’d all crack.

    i agree give the guy i a break he goes through panic attacks anxiety i know what he goes through with panic attacks i go through them
    also

    He was not prepared emotionally and mature enough to be more famous and sought after than the Beatles. He is a shy, introspective, funny, creative and YOUNG guy who was thrust into the lime light. He is also very sensitive. He said during an interview that when people exert all this energy at him and attention, praise and claims that he is so hot, instead of building his ego, it made him feel more uncomfortable and wanting to shrink. He is just a sweet guy who took the job thinking it was an independent movie. The books were not out in England and he did not know how big the following was. He liked the director and had seen Kristen in other movies she was in and liked her.

    It costs 37 M to make and raked in 380 M world wide. He was paid only a small amount in comparison and was not treated like a star until New Moon started. Summit relied on him to promote the movie and left him to deal with the press and public. He still managed to be endearing and interesting and win over the hearts of the world just by being his shy, awkward un-macho self.

    Unexpected fame and attention destroys most people. They become drug or booze heads, lose their friends, change, become conceited or turn into assxxxxx. Robert Pattinson due to his family, friends and faith has conducted himself admirably – with humor and grace under constant attention. His intelligence and talent is obvious and his principles and solid grounding is evident. I admire his talent, kindness towards the public and for being a fine young man. Robert is a really kind, down to earth and lovely soul. God bless him.

    He is not a drug addict. He wanted to look as different as he could so folks would not hassle him and recognize him. Please go to You Tube and look for the behind the scenes interviews and Twilight compilations. Look at the Comic Con event in San Diego for the movie. Search his name and “crush”, “I think that she knows” and many others that show the real guy. Cut him a break he is only 22 and very unworldly. He went to a private prep school that he paid for with his modeling earnings and then was in Harry Potter and small movies. He made an offbeat movie about Dali that he was not happy about due to the gay sex scenes and nudity element in it. It is very artsy but not good for his image. The other actor and Pattinson are both straight in real life. He made “Little Ashes” when he was not sure if he would work again.

    Rob Pattinson is the next Lawrence Olivier coupled with James Dean’s vulnerability, Cary Grant’s charm and Jim Carey’s wit. ROCK ON ROB!
