Oh 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?
