Robert Pattinson Insults ‘Twilight’ Fans in the Worst Way -- Why, Rob, Why???

Say What!? 176

robert pattinsonOh Twihard fans. Please, sit down a moment. I have some terrible news for you. Are you comfortable? Can I get you a glass of water or ... no? Okay. Here, give me you hands. It's just that, well, how should I put this? Robert Pattinson thinks all Twilight fans do is sit around on their computers all day obsessing over him and the movie. He said this. In an interview. Here, I'll show you the quote. It's a little painful to hear, but you're strong and I know you can handle it. Ahem.

The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren't really teenagers. Most of them are older. Twilight has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one. And in an intense way that has never existed before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight. Day and night. So actually really exciting -- at least up to the point when I became part of that phenomenon.

Ew. That really smarts. Rob has this image of his fans as grown-ass women hunched over their computers, doing nothing but obsessing over all things Twilight, commenting on every post, all freakin' day long and maybe into the night. That's not exactly flattering. Kind of makes it sounds like he doesn't think his fans have actual, you know, lives or anything. (You have a life, reader, right? You're not actually spending the whole day obsessing over Twilight, are you?)

And oh yeah, he thinks it's super creepy that he's become part of your obsesh.

Never mind that fans much fill his pockets and are the reason why he can flit about making his smarty-pants obscure indie films. Geez, I know he's trying to distance himself from his Twilight work so people will take him more seriously as an actor, but does he have to be so MEAN about it?

Okay, now check out what he says about actually meeting his fans.

[Some interactions were] really scary and creepy. Suddenly everywhere I went people thought they already knew me. They look at a photo of me and think they have a special relationship, a friendship, an affair with me -- someone they haven't met their whole life. That's crazy ... but I try to laugh it off.

Hahaha! Rob's fans kind of scare him. No, no Rob. We're not hurt. Really. (Sniff sniff.)

SIGH. Well Rob, I enjoyed our affair. It was all too brief, and I know you've already forgotten all about me. Now I'm just somebody that you used to know. Or not, since we never actually met in person except in my dreams. My extremely vivid dreams that felt totally real, the ones I had with my eyes open in front of my computer at all hours. My heart will go on. Someone will write another young adult bestseller, and it'll be turned into a mega film franchise, and I will fall in love with its star. As God is my witness, I WILL LOVE AGAIN! And I'm not bitter or anything, but seriously? RPattz you can go straight to vampire hell, because I know you hate that nickname.

How do you feel about the way Robert Pattinson describes his fans?

 

robert pattinson, twilight

It's true though. I don't know a single teenager who actually cares beyond reading the books or seeing the movies. It's all my middle-aged women friends that drink wine and discuss twilight till they're blue in the face.

Lol, I totally agree with him and the previous posters. All Twlight tattoos and extreme behavior has been from middle aged women.

LOLOLOLOL!!! Pretty good article, and I agree, he's right. But at least I try to do other things. I may not have much of a life, but I CAN distinguish fantasy from reality. ;-P

He must have seen the same comment I did on a fan forum one day.  Some grown woman had said she never gets anything done because all she does is sit around, read fanfic, and daydream about Edward Cullen being her husband.  That was enough for me lol.

He's dead on about Twilight fans. An over 8 hour flight with 7 of them back in 2008 was too much for me as all they could discuss was how hot so and so was whereas i would have rather talked about the view out the window or food.

You still don't get it.  IT NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT!  You're the bat shit crazy fans Rob and Kristen run from!  There are fans that understand.  But his comment is about the crazies.  This world is full of them!

i knew quite a few teenagers who were fans, most adults now, but i know the obsessive middle aged woman group is out there, as seen in vids on youtube. it would suck to be obsessed over and apart of that, but the fact that rob expresses no gratitude for those crazy obsessive fans who put the most money in his pocket is really a horrible trait.
