“When I first came to L.A., it was very easy to convince people I was a member of the royal family. I hadn’t worked for three years — I was unemployed in London — and when people asked what I’d been doing, I told people I went to RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art] with Prince William. People would think, ‘You’re English, I completely believe you!’”
—Robert Patttinson reveals to Graham Norton the name-dropping trick he used when he first moved to the United States to pursue acting. It’s not bad. But I think he could have taken it farther. I mean, why not make himself a royal cousin or a Duke of whatnot? [PopEater] Keep reading »
We’re still not 100 percent sure if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are a couple. But it sure looks like they’ve adopted a puppy together. The two supposedly got the little guy from a shelter in Baton Rouge, LA, and named him Bear. Nikki Reed was the one who let the news of their co-pet ownership slip saying, “I didn’t even know they got a dog.” When reporters pounced on the use of the word “they,” she said, “Oh no, it’s Rob’s dog.” But then Robert and Kristen took him to the vet together. And brought him to set in Vancouver. Now, Kristen is caring for the dog in New York while Robert is in London promoting “Water for Elephants.”
So my question is: is it a good idea for couples to adopt pets together before making things permanent? I’m thinking of a good friend who now gets her pooch every other week after she and her boyfriend broke up. [E! Online, Hollywood Life] Keep reading »

Robert Pattinson‘s new movie “Water For Elephants” is scoring big with audiences, with 93 percent of Rotten Tomatoes viewers giving it a thumbs up, but how does it score amongst critics?
In the film adaptation from the book with the same name, Rob portrays a veterinarian who experiences a tragic loss and runs away, then finds himself working with a circus. After joining the rag tag team, Jacob finds himself falling in love with the ringleader’s wife, played by Hollywood’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon.
Renowned critic Roger Ebert gave the movie three stars, calling the film “endearingly old-fashioned,” and “a movie made of real people and plausible sets.” Meanwhile, the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes was not as kind as their viewers. Read more… Keep reading »
“Water for Elephants”‘
stars Reese Witherspoon
and Robert Pattinson
recently sat down for an “unscripted interview” with Moviefone in which they asked each other questions submitted by readers, as well as some of their own. You definitely get the sense that these two genuinely get along on and off the set, which hopefully bodes well for their on-screen chemistry. The first question for Rob: “Would you give it all up for love?” I completely agree with him that it’s kind of a ludicrous question when “it” is never defined. I would definitely give up a car for love, but not my ability to breathe. That would be pointless. Anyway, check out the full interview — Reese even swears! [Moviefone

“Rob possibly had the most hideous horrible cold of any co-star I’ve ever had to do a love scene with ever in my entire life. He was literally snorting and snotting through every second of it—and it was not appealing. I’m talking green, infectious, disgusting—I’m not kidding!”
—Reese Witherspoon reveals that even though everyone in Hollywood may want to make out with her “Water for Elephants” co-star, Robert Pattinson, her big sex scenes with him were all the way to disgusting. Way to kill the fantasy, Reese. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
