One of my good friends happens to be a TwiHard and has a major thing for Rob Pattinson. I've never understood it, because I tend to go for taller, funny guys like Jason Segel or classic all-American hotties like Leonardo DiCaprio. But his recent interview in the May issue of ELLE magazine is helping me better wrap my head around the crowd-crush on the Breaking Dawn star.
See, before, he just came off as a nice bloke, kinda bland, if you ask me. I'm sure he was perfectly lovely, but I never read a really funny or sexy sound byte from the guy.
But this! This new interview is something else. Because in some of the quotes, he sounds, well, kinda ... tough and raunchy! And it's HOT!
When asked how he felt about a quote from the author of the novel his forthcoming steamy drama Bel Ami is based on, which reads, “The essence of life is the smile of round female bottoms, under the shadow of cosmic boredom," Rob responded ...
Round female bottoms are very much a miracle.
Hot. Although I wish he would have err, elaborated a bit on what he meant by that, but that's okay. We'll take what we can get, right?
But then, he totally changed gears and went into Russell Crowe anger-management territory with this statement:
In 15 years or something – I like the idea of just one paparazzo coming out and trying to get a picture and I just beat the s— out of him. I mean – out of nowhere – when my picture’s not even worth…and I’ve spent all my money, so you can’t sue me!
Okay, this quote clearly shows that Rob isn't as dull as I would have pegged him! He's got some serious pent-up aggression, and although I'm no fan of violence, uh ... thinking Rob putting some jerk paparazzo in his place like that is admittedly, kinda SEXY! Especially if, say, he were defending his then-wife Kristen Stewart from the doofus. Although, I don't really see why he has to wait until 15 years from now to take on the camera-toting losers who invade his personal life. If anything, should just give them the finger a la the Biebs.
Why is the bad boy Rob Pattinson showing his true colors now? Well, he probably never really wanted to speak this candidly to the press, because the films have been pretty tame and targeted to a younger audience up until now. But with Breaking Dawn, which deals with some more mature themes, Water for Elephants and Bon Ami on the horizon, maybe Robby Boy's publicist is encouraging him to shed his squeaky-clean Mr. Nice Guy image? Haha -- just a theory.
No matter what the reason is, I sure like it! Keep it up, RPattz!
Do you prefer "bad boy" Rob Pattinson?
