Rob Pattinson Did NOT Buy A Lifetime Membership To The London Library, Contrary To Prior Reports!

As we all know, Rob Pattinson loves to read, and he’s a member of the London Library but a rep tells HollywoodLife.com that he has not bought a lifetime membership and he’s not a frequent visitor. Find out why!

Robert Pattinson may be an international superstar, but he also has academic skills. Rob is extremely well-read and has said that his favorite thing to do when he’s by himself is read. A recent report claimed Rob just bought a lifetime membership to the London Library, however we spoke to a rep from the Library who clarifies that Rob has been a member for a while, but has not bought a lifetime pass.

The previous report claimed: “Robert decided he’d been spending too much time lying about smoking, watching movies and munching junk food. He wants to expand his mind. He’s splashed out £18,500 for a lifetime membership [at the London Library].”

A London Library rep tells us, “So as to respect the privacy of all London Library members, we do not speak about our members unless they themselves have made some relevant public comment. Because Mr. Pattinson has spoken in an interview about his London Library membership, it is already on the public record that he has been a member and that he has a great love for the Library. Mr. Pattinson has not purchased a life membership, however, and his very busy filming schedule means that at no time has been a regular Library visitor.”

The rep clarified that the London Library is not “exclusive” and membership is “open to all book lovers.” Annual members, like Rob, pay £36 per month, and lifetime members usually make a “significant investment.”

Rob has been extremely busy with filming The Twilight Saga, Cosmopolis, and the rest of his movies, so it’s no surprise he hasn’t had much time to spend at the Library lately. But he told TimeOutLondon that it used to be one of his favorite hangouts. “The London Library in St James’s Square. I loved it there. There’s nothing like it anywhere in the world. I used to go there and try to write. But it was also such a labyrinth. You could go around there for hours and not see anyone. You could find Russian translations of Greek books that were hundreds of years old or you could be there for six hours and then suddenly bump into someone round a corridor – you could almost stay there overnight and nobody would notice.”

Now that Kristen Stewart is in London, Rob could visit her and take her for a tour!

Another reason I love living in America – Our libraries don’t have membership fees!!!!!! For 36 pounds ( that’s more in American dollars) I could buy lots of used books on Amazon. Public libraries rock! And as much as I love Rob, I really don’t find his library membership to be earth shattering news. Must be a slow Rpatz news week!

Most libraries in Europe (almost all) don’t have membership fees either.
