Robert Pattinson says the weirdest things
Robert Pattinson is known for his silly comments and sometimes-fictional stories, and he has been keeping the oddness coming while promoting The Rover. Like when he talked to Jimmy Kimmel about erotic spitting and told POPSUGAR on the red carpet that he could "probably live in trash quite easily." Well, the fun doesn't stop there. Keep reading for more of the wackiest quotes Rob's let loose over the past few weeks.
On wanting Guy Pearce's career: "I was talking about his side career as a male stripper."
On his weight: "I was very paranoid about my weight. I got quite sick in the last couple of days, and I got so excited about it, like, 'Oh, next week I'm going to be so skinny!'"
On staying at the LA hotel The Magic Castle: "I used to be friends with all the hookers down the street. They were my first friends in LA."
On Jennifer Lawrence: "She glows. I think you can fit that into quite a few different areas. Whereas I've got a kind of sneak-through-the-cracks style."
On surviving the apocalypse: "I could probably live in trash quite easily."
On his saliva: "For some reason I have extraordinarily heavy saliva. If I try and spit, I can only get it about a foot. And someone informed me the other day it's because I have very heavy saliva. I thought it was because I didn't have much lip power. Have you ever had someone spit on you in a kind of erotic way? It's pretty great."
On wanting to be a rapper when he was younger: "I still kind of do. I was a rapper named Big Tub. I was called Big Tub and the Tabby Cats."
On Twlight portraying women in a negative light: "For some reason there were all these political arguments against it. People saying, 'Oh, it's a bad example for women.' Blah, blah, blah. As if we were all a bunch of dumbasses. We're not playing it that way! That's purely your interpretation!"
On playing Edward Cullen for so long: "It was quite a constricting character, in a way. You want to make [him] as dramatic as possible, but you have someone who never loses his temper, and so it's like, 'How the f*ck do you do this?' I think that was one of the hardest jobs I've ever done."
On one of his biggest fears: "I hate auditioning. I just can't do it. I get so nervous, like cripplingly nervous. I'm bad at them, and I feel awful afterward."
On work: "I've basically messed up every audition I've ever gone for. I forget how to act in between every single movie."
On filming Twilight vs. The Rover: "The cold makes people stressed. There wasn't as much light in the day to shoot with in Vancouver. And this was just, like, the same weather every day. There's no one pressuring you to do anything. It's [director David Michôd's] movie, and there are basically only two people in it. You don't have to rush anything. There's only two egos you have to deal with. [Laughs.]"
On his "real" personality: "I did some interview awhile ago, and it sounds like I'm a manic depressive about to kill myself. And I'm like, 'No I'm not!'"
On starring in another movie franchise: "I'd have to put a lot of thought into it first. But in a lot of ways, those are the only big movies that are made anymore. So unless you just never want to do studio movies, you have to realise that you've got to do The Fault in Our Stars 2."
