Twilight has Ruined Robert Pattinson’s Theater Dream!

Filed under : Celebrity News

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?

    I don’t think Rob is being ungrateful or cynical, just realistic. I think it would be pandaemonium if he were to be in the West End, or Broadway right now, and even if not, could theatre producers take a chance on that? What would they do with screaming fans in the middle of the play? And frankly, I don’t even know if it would be safe for him, as right now he can’t go anywhere without a bodyguard.

    And about being disrespectful to his Twilight fans, he said they had “too much energy,” what’s wrong with that? They do! They’re young girls, of course they have a lot of energy, and many have a hard time differentiating between Edward Cullen and Rob. I also think, with no disrespect to you Marilyn, that Kevin Spacey wouldn’t have the difficult time that Rob would. The directer of Water for Elephants said he worked with Will Smith, and he signed autographs and that was it. But with Rob, the fans were crazy and it was a whole other level. I think it’s hard for normal people (certainly for me) to fully comprehend.

    Yes I am a fan of Robs, more from Remember Me, where I think he gave a moving performance. The looks are not what makes him so special, in my opinion, good looking guys with nothing behind them are just a bore. I loved his performance in Remember Me, where he brought life and depth into that character. I can’t wait to see him in Water For Elephants.

    I am a big fan of Robert Pattinson but isn’t he being a bit cynical here. First of all, if he knew anything of British theatre audiences he would know that they don’t take pictures during a performance. He should know this since he has appeared on the London stage in the past.

    I’ve been to the Old Vic several times and seen Kevin Spacey in plays and not a single person whipped out a camera and started to take pictures.

    Robert we know you’re a star but let some of the air out darling, you aren’t that special except in the looks department. What a face; none can compare!
