Hold the RPattz, Please

Robert Pattinson talked to The Guardian about Twilight and his current projects. Among other things, he doesn’t like the term RPattz.

For someone with the world at his feet – he has the Twilight franchise behind him and David Cronenberg’s icy drama Cosmopolis as his next release – Pattinson gives a good impression of a man plagued with self-doubt. “I’ve never really taken myself seriously as an actor,” he says, fresh off a plane from Germany, where, he notes by the by, everybody seems to hate him.

“It is surprising the amount of people who think I’m going to be really dumb,” he says. “I think they think anyone who has done teen movies is just an idiot. I don’t know, maybe I am. Some of the best actors, if you talk to them, they’re not the smartest people in the world.”

    Guess I’m swearing off use of the term R-Patz. Always thought it was stupid anyway.

    Wow! I couldn’t even make it through all the comments posted after the article on the Guardian site. Wow! There are so many critical people in the world. It makes one wonder how anyone is still brave enough to put themselves “out there” as any sort of artist – actor, singer, writer, painter. Poor Rob, he’s so self depreciating. Could he really be anymore like Edward?

  4. I don’t blame him. I don’t like it either. I hate all these stupid nicknames that people come up with for celebrities. RPattz, KStew, LiLo, all of them. If their parents wanted them to be called that, then it would be on their birth certificates. These stupid things happen just because people are too lazy to call them by their real names.

  5. I know I hate that nick name to. I hate most nick names stars get. Just call them by their name

  6. Who coined the term RPattz anyways? Always seemed like a silly Hollywood nickname anyways.

  7. never said R-Patz anywayz (:
