Robert Pattinson: A Prisoner of His Own Fans

Filed under : Celebrity News

“Twilight” star, Robert Pattinson, has again talked about how worried he is by his fans. First he daren’t appear on a London stage because of them; now he has said he is too scared to buy a house in case fans break in! Oh come on, Rob; this is starting to sound like paranoia now. Have you thought about getting some help?

The English heartthrob has disclosed that he stays in a string of hotels in a bid to feel safe.

“I’m afraid of buying a house or anything – the best way to deal with it is just to move around all the time,” he told English newspaper, “The Sun”.

And it’s not just the fans that worry Pattinson. Apparently, walking down the street provokes threats: “people will be like, ‘f_ you’,” he explained.

“I get a lot of people wanting to beat me up. Men in bars and stuff. Then I just leave.”

Hmmm… I don’t like to disillusion Pattinson here, but he is not the most famous actor in the world and he is not the first to have to deal with fame. Surely he could look to someone older and wiser in Hollywood to help him cope with his fame, which is apparently causing him a lot of stress.

Nikki Reed admitted that Pattinson and Stewart rarely even go out now without bodyguards. “Nobody wants to go out anymore, we are all afraid,” she said.

What do you think? Are the fears of Robert Pattinson and his fellow “Twilight” stars justified? Are their fans and other people really a threat to them?

What advice would you give to R-Patz et al to help them cope with stardom before they crack?

    How presumptuous it would be for me, or anyone not in a similar position, to advise Rob on something like this when we have no idea what it’s like to be constantly hounded by millions of fans. I know I too would be feeling pretty paranoid and trapped if I were in his position, though.

    And whether or not he is the most famous actor in the world is irrelevant; he is certainly the most hounded at this point in time. Would he be better off to handle it by snorting coke or doing heroin? Because that’s how a lot of them “handle” it.

    The older ones don’t have these issues – maybe Brad Pitt, but he’s a different personality. I have read others, directors and other actors, Reese Witherspoon for one, saying they’ve not seen anything like this since Leo Dicaprio. And even with Leo – you can’t compare one person’s experiences with another. How easy it is to sit back in judgment, when is the last time you thought twice about leaving your home, hanging out with friends, or just doing whatever you felt like doing? Rob can’t do that.

    Are Twilight fans really a threat? Ask John Lennon that one.

    And I don’t think John had people threatening to beat him up, either. And if that isn’t terrifying enough, how about being torn to shreds by “loving” fans all wanting a piece of you? He could either get beat up, pulled apart, or shot. Yes, I think they could definitely be considered a threat.

    Also you have to take into account the individual’s personality. Rob seems shy and introverted; he is handling this the best way he can. I really get annoyed when people judge him for that. He is always gracious with his fans, always kind, but obviously this is too much for him.

    Oh yeah, one other thing that annoys me, since I’m on a rant . . . people will say to him, stop whining, you’re so lucky, blah, blah, blah. Why is he so lucky? By whose standards? If this was not what he wanted in his life, then he has a right to say how he feels. Maybe lots would consider his life great with the fame and the money, but if he doesn’t, he is entitled to feel whatever way he feels. It is his life. And no one has the right to judge his, or anyone else’s feelings.
