In the eyes of many, Robert Pattinson can do no wrong. The Twilight star is young, hot, and makes bazillions of dollars ... or at least enough to make the top 10 of Vanity Fair's top-earners in Hollywood list. But one mom didn't care about any of that and recently chewed him out big time for his nasty little smoking habit.
Mama bear went wild when she and her teenage daughter walked by Pattinson, who was taking a smoke break outside a Vancouver restaurant, and inhaled his secondhand smoke. Many would have tried to bottle it, but not this woman. She let loose.
According to the National Enquirer, she screamed:
“You’re NOT allowed to be smoking here!” Then she plucked the burning butt from the stunned star’s lips, flung it to the ground, and STOMPED IT DEAD! Raging, she hissed: “That’s called secondhand smoke. I know my rights. You have to be at least 6 meters away from the entrance, you jerk!”
Wouldn't you have loved to see that? If only someone had captured it on film. And wow, what a woman. I've certainly wanted to do that to some smokers, but I'd never have the balls to actually do it, especially to someone famous. Good for her though.
Apparently she had no clue who Pattinson was until her daughter started screaming, "It’s Edward! ... It’s Edward from Twilight!”
Can you imagine how humiliated this girl probably was that her mother just chewed out Edward? But being the valiant vampire that he is, it sounds like he was really cool about it and even posed for a picture with her.
“Don’t apologize," he told her. "You are absolutely right. I need to stop smoking, for sure."
Yes, yes you do. Think of all the little vampire wannabes out there looking up to you; think of your health and your life. Remember, you're only immortal in the movies. Smoking kills for real. I can see the public service announcements now.
Hopefully this mama will set him straight, and he'll kick the habit. But in the eyes of his adoring fans, he'll always be smoking ... smoking hot, that is. *Swoon*
Would you chew out someone for smoking in a place they shouldn't?
