Robert Pattinson: 20 Secrets You Don't Know About Him


Robert PattinsonWhether you're a massive Twilight fan or not, there's no denying that Robert Pattinson is a handsome hunk. That Kristen Stewart is one lucky lady! Do you see those crystal blue eyes and that shaggy hair? I melt! With the latest installment of the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 coming out in theaters this Friday (!!!) -- there's no better time to get to know the hottest, most-happenin' vampire around.

Read on for 20 secrets you didn't know about Robert Pattinson:

1. At first Twilight fans didn't want Pattinson to play Edward on the big screen (can you believe it!?). More than 75,000 people signed a petition AGAINST him taking the role because they thought he wasn't the right fit.

2. Rob's two older sisters, Victoria and Lizzie, used to dress him up as a woman named Claudia when he was 12.

3. His first kiss was also at 12.

4. Robert was completely cut out of the 2004 movie titled Vanity Fair. In it, he played the older version of Rawdon Crawley. Don't worry, though. You can catch RPattz in Vanity Fair DVD extras.

5. Our favorite vampire is actually 6'1''. I know, a lot taller than I thought, too!

6. Robert beat out 3,000 other actors for the Twilight role.

7. Robert told Seventeen magazine that he would want to possibly trade places with George Bush because he is "someone who has lots of respect."

8. Think Rob's got a nice booty? You're not alone. Rob's done butt modeling (yes, there is such a thing) and has been a butt double for "a lot of different actors."

9. Pattinson's not crazy about his name. He once told MTV, "I hate any reference to my name" and suggested the alternative nickname Spunk Ransom. Creative one, that Robby.

10. Starting when he was 10, Rob was very interested in making money. He used to deliver the paper for $20 a week.

11. Van Morrison is one of Rob's fave artists. He told, "He was my inspiration for doing music in the first place." Awwww, bromance.

12. Rob didn't know how to drive until recently. The hunk had one driving lesson in Oregon and then essentially taught himself the rest after buying a car in L.A.

13. Robert was once in a band called Bad Girls with his "first girlfriend's [then] current boyfriend." Ballsy, I like it.

14. Back in 2005, Rob was the first actor to read for the part Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Of course, he got the gig.

15. Bad boy! Rob was expelled from school for not doing his homework.

16. Rob's not big on using his cellphone.

17. The 25-year-old would really love to work with Jack Nicholson.

18. Rob's not much into washing his hair. He told Metromix that after six weeks, his hair starts to "wash itself."

19. Rob's a Taurus and his birthday is May 13, 1986.

20. The only thing Rob "splurges on" is DVDs.

Did any of these facts surprise you? What's your favorite thing about Robert Pattinson?

I love love love me some Edward. Of course I love him so much, because he is so perfect and beautiful. Now poor RPatt has big shoes to fill that just isn't that easy. I know that without make-up I look differently and obviously he does too. Plus I am sure they do touch ups on the film, so then again it is kind of impossible for a person to look the same as they do on the big screen after all the make-up and on screen touch ups are taken away. I love RPatt for being Edward, but I am sure he doesn't love himself for doing it after all the bashing he gets for not looking the same as the on screen version of himself!

I know more secrets than these about Robby.

I love Robert Pattinson!! Washed hair or not!!

casan... casanderson1

He does not give Edward Cullen justice....


Edward is supposed to be the most beautiful creature in the world or at least that's how he is described in the books. Robert Patterson is just blah lol not attractive at all in my opinion.

Babyb... Babybear89

he was the worst decision for the twilight movies ever!!!

I'm not much into his look either.  I thought he did a pretty good job acting, though.  I only saw the first movie, I'll admit lol.

Kairi... KairisMama

He didn't say George W Bush, he said George Bush. There is a difference between dad and his IDIOT son. As for the hair thing, um EWWW. Now I never knew he was in a HP film.

hempm... hempmommy87

I think he's ugly, to be honest. I don't find him attractive at all lol

Rowan... RowanTreeMommy

I do not find him attractive at all, sadly.  I wish to high heaven that Adam Lambert had been cast as Edward, instead.  Anyone remember him from American Idol???  Now he would have made a tasty Edward (yes, I am aware he's gay...and I'm not in denial of the fact...I just think he has a definite sex appeal...which RP is very much lacking!)!  I would much rather watch Adam give his smokey, brooding look; vs. RP's, which just makes him look like he's pissy and trying to be intimidating, when he's clearly NOT.

I've been a bit disappointed in the movies so far...I don't really like the acting, and I feel as though there's very little chemistry between the lead characters...which as we all know, is totally not the case in the books.  It all just seems a little flat and forced, and totally falls short of the raw attraction and passion in the books.

I agree with the whole hair thing!! Thats real gross that he dosen`t wash it!! But other then that i`ve always been a fan of his and he`s absolutly gorgeous, in my opinion!!
