Robert Pattinson: I'm Sorry I Was 'Pretentious'

Robert Pattinson Interview

You have to hand it to Robert Pattinson. He actually admits in a new TV interview that he became “pretentious” and even behaved like a “douchebag”,  before getting himself back in line.

Isn’t this one of the reasons we love Robert Pattinson – he is just so down to earth, despite his enormous fame.

Rob confessed that he suffered from a brush with pretentiousness in an interview with Canadian late night talk show host, George Stroumboulopoulos. The interview will air tonight , June 7.

He explained that despite becoming a huge movie star, earning $20 million plus a year, he had been determined to remain humble.

“I was really fighting to not look pretentious for years, and someone gives you one inch of the possibility of being pretentious, (in Cannes, where he was asked about his ‘craft’) and you’re like grabbing it so hard, going around being the biggest douchebag,” Rob laughed.

We love that Rob was so anxious to let his fans know that being “pretentious” is not the real Rob. “I’ve kind of reined it in again,” he said about his lapse into douchebaggery.

And if anything, we got to see once more in this interview how Robert Pattinson is the opposite of “pretentious” or a “douchebag.” The guy is actually, shockingly lacking in self-confidence.

After all the mega-success of the Twilight movies, Rob’s head hasn’t been enlarged in the least. “I thought I was totally oversaturated everywhere, I wanted to do tiny parts (in movies) or maybe no parts at all… I was really, really determined to find ensemble pieces or anything small just so I didn’t have to be in everybody’s face and annoying everyone.”

Well Rob, we can assure you that you are anything but annoying and we can’t wait to see lots of you coming up in Cosmopolis, Rover and Mission Blacklist and many, many more films.

Rob does not appear to be pretentious, but honestly, I do think that Kristen Stewart is pretty pretentious. Her interviews mostly consist of: “I wouldn’t do that. That’s not me.” Me, me, me. Bow down to the pretentious hipster queen that is Kristen Stewart.

Kristen says what she feels. She’s true to herself and not fake like most of the actresses in Hollywood.
