Robert Pattinson should probably take a step back and realize that his life isn’t as depressing as he makes it seems. Pattinson took a break from his moping to discuss relationships and, yet again, how fame isn’t really for him.
On relationships, Pattinson states:
“I’m quite sensitive, and I do like a bit of grand gesturing, but that’s just my ego. I like to give people presents and I think of myself as the best gift giver, but only because I get stuff for myself and then make it work for the other person.”
5 Twilight movies, and millions of fans later, Pattinson is still not used to his fame:
“I just didn’t expect any of this and I didn’t ask for it. It was literally all luck. I just stumbled from job to job…It’s difficult to remain sane. It’s really difficult. I get a ton of anxiety, right up until the second I get out of the car to the event, when suddenly it completely dissipates. But up until that moment I’m a nut case.”
“Body dysmorphia, overall tremendous anxiety. I suppose it’s because of these tremendous insecurities that I never found a way to become egotistical. I don’t have a six-pack and I hate going to the gym. I’ve been like that my whole life. I never want to take my shirt off. I’d prefer to get drunk.”
While I am sure we can all appreciate how humble Pattinson has been through his career, it does get quite irritating when he keeps mentioning how much of a toll fame is taking on him. He was the face of a huge franchise for years and was adored by millions, so while he doesn’t have to love every minute of it, actually showing that he enjoys some of it would be nice.
