Being an international sex symbol is not as good as we might think, according to “Twilight” star, Robert Pattinson. He thinks the overwhelming interest that his role as sexy vampire, Edward Cullen, in the vampire movie franchise, is a bit of a handicap and it has deterred him from following his dream of mixing movie roles with West End theatre performances in London.
“I love to do theater stuff but right now I couldn’t imagine it being a good experience,” explains Robert. Why is that? Pattison fears that any stage performance he gave would be marred by “people constantly taking photos and stuff.” He (rather ungratefully, in our opinion) says his “Twilight” fans have “too much energy” to go watch him on stage.
While Pattinson is busy underestimating his audience rather than using his fame to bring a new audience to the theatre, he has hopes for the future. He is already looking forward to the end of “Twilight” when he and his rumored relationship with c-star, Kristen Stewart, will no longer be of interest to us, he hopes. “It won’t fit into a headline anymore. It won’t fit into a template.”
Maybe Robert Pattinson is correct on that. Will fans be so interested in who his girlfriend is if she is no longer his on-screen partner too? But also, will people be keen to see Pattinson take to the stage when he doesn’t have the “Twilight” franchise to back him? Is it time Robert
Pattinson showed his fans a little more respect?
