Rob admits to reading everything that’s being printed, calling it ‘a weird kind of addiction.’ Is that good news for Kristen?
Robert Pattinson‘s breakup from Kristen Stewart, following her admitted affair with married director Rupert Sanders, has made countless headlines — and Rob has seen ‘em all! “Yeah, I read it,” Rob says in a newly released interview with The Columbus Dispatch. “It’s my life. You sort of want to read it. You feel like you need to read it.”
And that’s where Rob’s metaphor starts getting colorful.
“It’s one of those things where you keep picking a scab,” he says. “You know you shouldn’t be doing it, but it’s a weird kind of addiction. You desperately want to stop.”
Pictures of Kristen kissing Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert went public in late July, after which Rob briefly went into hiding. He reportedly took refuge from the public eye at former co-star Reese Witherspoon‘s California ranch, then resurfaced several weeks later for a series of high-profile appearances — including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Good Morning America — to promote his new movie Cosmopolis.
And it sounds like, all the while, Rob has been keeping up with himself in the press! Do you think Rob reading about Kristen is a sign he wants to get back together with her, or is it just giving him more reasons to stay away?
