Robert Pattinson did the ice bucket challenge with a hose and a metal sauce pan

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.

Robert Pattinson knows he’s a “bullshit artist”

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 on Kristen Stewart affair: “Shit happens!”

robert pattinson

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?

From Esquire:

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.
