Robert Pattinson was asked if his relationship troubles echo those of English Royals Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, which was met with hisses and boos from the crowd at a New York Times Talk on August 15. Keep reading to see how he reacted!
Robert Pattinson just admitted that he is “not trying to sell his personal life” on GMA, but that didn’t stop New York Times reporter David Carr from asking about his relationship with Twilight star Kristen Stewart.
Although Rob and director David Cronenberg were on the panel to promote their movie Cosmopolis, the moderator steered off course. He compared R-Patz and K-Stew to Prince Charles and Diana, and the audience did not appreciate it. “So if you and Kristen have trouble it’s like Charles and Di having trouble?” Carr asked.
The audience started booing and Rob squirmed in his seat. A member of the audience yelled out, “Next question!”
“I think it’s because America really wants to have a royal family,” Rob admitted. “They want to pick their king and queen.” He also pointed out that America’s royalty are Hollywood stars and that they are very similar to real royalty. But, Rob made sure to add, “I wouldn’t go that far.”
