Robert Pattinson Tells CNN I’m OK and No one Knows My Personal Life But Me

Looking fairly relaxed in a tee shirt with a cup of coffee or tea Robert Pattinson looks OK to us too in the middle of an all day event of press interviews.

In the past three days Robert Pattinson has been served ice cream by John Stewart, breakfast cereal by GMA, and oddly been asked to draw a parallel between his love life and the late Princess Diana of Wales which was met with a round of boos from the live studio audience and an equally visceral reaction from the online viewers. In our estimation, he’s really taken it all in stride with a great degree of grace. In any case, Rob in his own words seems to be fine, not falling a part at the seems, and says pretty clearly that no one really knows about his personal life but him.

Comments

  1. So what was he suppose to say? Stupid, stupid, stupid. Come on, give me a break!

  2. Good for Rob! Let him be an actor and leave his personal life alone. I would like to tune in to see Rob (or Kristen) and not have to here about the drama.

    Who knows? Maybe their whole relationship was a facade for publicity. Either way, they can’t entirely complain about their lack of privacy. You can’t have it both ways – international superstar when it’s movie / red carpet time and oblivious nobody when it’s take out the trash / walk the dog time. Although I do have to wonder why it’s so different for them? There are, have been, and will be other famous celebrities that are well known and loved and yet we don’t hear them bemoaning how much they hate always being watched and recognized. Of course, there have also been celebrities that were catapulted into the statosphere that couldn’t handle their level of fame and veered off course (Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Michael Jackson, even Garth Brooks comes to mind.) I surely hope that they never fall prey to that type of reaction to fame. Enough is enough about all this already. Rob, stop being (in your own words) so cheap and hire a dadgum publicist already! They can help you script the interviews, prep you for all possible inane questions, and help you smoothly redirect the conversation.

    • Noooo!!! Rob don’t hire a publicist and write scripts for your interviews!! Just keep ignoring people who want to talk about your personal life and stick to what you do best — acting and, when necessary, promoting your films.

      As for the comment that he “bemoans” the fame – huh??? I’ve never heard him complain about it. Even in this interview, he pretty much takes it in stride. I think he’s handling this with a ton of class and am so happy that the “fame” we gave him has been placed on someone who knows how to stay true to themselves even amidst that.

      Actually, lots of celebs have “bemoaned” being watched and recognized. Sean Penn, George Clooney … not interested in detailing it for you, but a whole lot of celebs of both genders. For actors, celebrity is a mixed blessing/curse that comes with a high level of success. Good professionally, to garner attention (and money) for their work. Bad personally. Moonbeam, Rob has made comments in the past about the negative side of fame, but I think he stopped at least a year ago, maybe two or three.

    • I agree somewhat. I LOVE Rob, but I also lovvvvveeddd Robsten. All of these fans are saying “leave him alone, leave him alone, leave him alone!” But I actually DO want to know. Sorry, but I do. Maybe (probably) he won’t bite on any of the questions, but whatever. The questions in this interview were absolutely horrible, but I think that since he is a star and since it is all over the place interviewers DO have to ask. They could just be a little more creative and tactful about it.

      That being said, I don’t think he should ever hire a publicist because I love Rob’s real personality. I don’t think he complains about fame, and fine if he wants to dodge questions, but come on now. He has to expect them. And a lot of people do want to know, so don’t pretend that nobody cares but the media. Robsten had a HUGE fan base.

    Having seen this – OMG – stop asking him if he’s ok after the second time. Can somebody in the media please either stop asking or come up with a different way to ask “are you ok?” If nothing else, it’s dull for the viewer.

  5. I feel bad for him. Let the guy go talk about the movie like he is contractually obligated to do. I hate his nervous laughter as she asks him those damn questions. Poor guy. Does she honestly think that he’s going to take that opportunity to pour his heart out to the media? Come on.

  6. Ok, I was seriously waiting for the part where Rob says “I’m Ok. No one knows about my personal life but me” like the caption says, but he didn’t. Whatever it is, I wish these interviewers would stop asking him if he’s Ok. Like, enough already.
