Robert Pattinson seems to shun all forms of social media – and probably for good reason – so it was up to his unlikely friend Zac Efron to share the video below of Rob doing the ALS ice bucket challenge complete with hose and sauce pan. Keep it classy, Rob:

This is kind of the best celebrity ice bucket challenge yet, simply because it’s so unexpected. He’s so awkward. Also, he “couldn’t find a bucket”? And they’re dumping a pan of ice cubes on him, which are then already on the ground by the time he gets sprayed down with the hose? I don’t know what’s going on here, but it’s cracking me up.
Also, the fact that he nominated Marilyn Manson MADE MY DAY. Please let Marilyn Manson do this shit. For all of our sakes.

Despite the fact that he’s most famous for his role in the Twilight franchise, I’ve always really liked Robert Pattinson and found him endearing. It’s both a blessing and a curse that he took on that role, because it allowed him to actually book further roles and make his career as an actor. Then again, he’s forever typecast as Edward “Sparkly Vampire” Cullen, and that’s not really a good thing. On the bright(er) side, at least he knows he’s a “bullshit artist”?
From The Guardian:
“I’m quite good at doing meetings,” he says. “If I’m just meeting someone about a job I’m like a dog, especially if my agent’s said to me: ‘A lot of people want this job.’ Then I’m like: ‘Oh yeah? Then I will do anything to get it!’” What’s his technique? “I don’t know, I just become a bullshit artist!” he laughs. “That’s when I start acting! I’m really much better at doing it when the cameras aren’t rolling …”
Well, that’s just like interviewing for any job, isn’t it? You have to bullshit – not because you aren’t really passionate about it (I mean, I guess in some cases you wouldn’t be) but because it’s hard to be effusively excited when you’re just trying to get a paycheck.
Anyway, I like Rob – I think his interviews are hilarious, even if a little lacklustre.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been through some serious shit together over the past 5 years. First, they endured the entire Twilight franchise. If that wasn’t enough, they also began dating in real life, only for KStew to cheat on RPattz with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. It was an escandalo! of epic proportions and everywhere in the press, but Robert must have managed to forgive her, because they got back together several times after that, and may still be dating now, in fact.
Well, it turns out Rob isn’t all that bothered by infidelity, in the end. In fact, apparently he thinks that’s just what young people do?
Like all things Twilight, the whole K-Stew / R-Patz saga was horribly overcooked. It’s not unusual for co-stars to date – they were both living and working in a strange bubble for many years, both of them under intense and obsessive scrutiny. And then it ended in betrayal.
“Shit happens, you know?” he laughs. “It’s just young people… it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a shit?”
Well, a lot of people, that’s what’s weird.
“The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict,” he says. “It’s like that scene in Doubt [2008, in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest suspected of inappropriate behaviour], where he’s talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”
RPattz has always been emo as shit, so I’m assuming he’s just trying to act like he doesn’t care so that he doesn’t come off as being too soft or bothered about the whole thing. Young or not, when you’re in love with someone and they’re unfaithful to you, I doubt you’d just shrug your shoulders and think, “Eh, shit happens!” I know there’s been a bit of time that’s passed since this was fresh, as well, it all just seems so flippant. Not that I expect him to pour his heart out to an international publication, but then why discuss it at all?
Obviously when you’re young, you’re much more careless in relationships and you do fuck up, perhaps repeatedly. I dunno, I just feel like that whole quote is weird as hell.

You’ll have to watch the video to find out what on earth made Robert Pattinson think going into a fetal position during a taped interview would be a good thing to do.

Everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence, right? She’s America’s sweetheart! She’s our entire population’s BFF! She’s the sexiest woman in the world! And now she’s got a seriously official seal of approval… from Robert Pattinson. That’s right, RPattz loves JLaw and thinks she’s “absolutely incredible”, apparently.
From The Daily Beast:
Which actors do you look at and say, “That’s the kind of career I want to have?”
I like what Joaquin has done. I’m always looking at his stuff—he’s been the most influential actor on me. And in a lot of ways I like Guy’s career as well. But he also does Australian stuff all the time, and I feel weird doing English things. I feel like I’m really naked.
What about someone like Jennifer Lawrence? She’s balanced two studio franchises with lots of meatier parts.
She’s amazing. She’s absolutely incredible. But also we’re different types of people. She seems like she’s super-confident—and I don’t have the kind of confidence. 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.
Ohhhh snap, Rob is a JLaw stan. Love it! Also, it kinda boosts her up again since I feel like we’ve been oversaturated with Jennifer Lawrence over the past 18 months or so and everyone sorta felt like they needed a bit of a break from her. Of course, her pocket book isn’t suffering – she’s still booking roles and making money like crazy. I’d like to see them do something together, actually. Even though Rob was in shitty ass Twilight, he is actually a pretty decent actor.
Side note: that picture is totally ‘Shopped, right?

Robert Pattinson was apparently rumored to be playing Indiana Jones in a movie reboot. Which is just, no. I mean, I guess he’s a better pick than Shia LaBeouf, but personally, I don’t want to see anyone in Indy’s shoes but the original Indy. Thankfully, they were just rumors, which he confirmed to E!, saying,
I don’t even understand where the story started from. I didn’t even know it was being made.
But since we’re on the topic, let’s just throw down and do it: who would YOU recast as Indiana Jones?
