Robert Pattinson covers BlackBook Magazine September 2012 in which he says his mother reads and believes tabloid rumours including the insipid, obfuscated speculation from OK! Magazine that he’s marrying girlfriend Kristen Stewart who they say is pregnant (no and NO). Here are some excerpts from his interview, in which he’s almost as fond of cursing as is Stewart.
On buying his first car: “The first time anyone said anything about my being famous was when I tried to buy a car a few years ago. It was an ’89 BMW convertible for $1,000 I found on Craigslist. I went out to the hills to take it on a test drive and, of course, almost crashed. A few days later I went back to pick it up. I had said I was an actor and the guy had looked me up. When I went back, he said,’Dude, do you realize you’re #2 on IMDB?’ I thought, ‘S**t, now I can’t ask for the 200 bucks off.’”
On the premiere of Cosmopolis at Cannes: “I was kind of s**tting myself,” says Rob. “I lost my mind,” Rob says. “I was preparing myself to fight with 1,500 people. I was so amped up.” The stakes were high for him. He had fallen into Twilight by what he calls “luck.” And, since he had signed a contract, he was carried by the tide. You might say he was chauffeured, or at least driven.“I was just kind of running around with my pants down and my shoelaces untied and, amazingly, not falling. Until this. I thought, ‘Oh f**k!’ Most people get 15 years of doing movies nobody sees. Now I’m at Cannes.”
On giving interviews: “I once started a rumor on Entertainment Tonight that there was a deleted scat sex scene in Twilight and it didn’t even get picked up. I thought, ‘What the f**k? I’m giving you this stuff! You try to say things in the perfect way but you know unless you say something stupid, from which people will make you look like a d**k, you’re not going to have sound bites. And if you don’t say anything stupid, someone’s going to make something up anyways.”
On not marrying Kristen Stewart yet: “There was a magazine, with these pictures, saying I was getting married. No one ever knows what is true or what isn’t,” he says exasperatedly. “Even my own mum called to ask me if it was true.”
On how his friends changed after he became famous: “My circle of friends narrowed pretty quickly.” Says Rob, “I like to be the parasite, not the other way around.” - via BlackBook Magazine.
