Gay Relationships and Fanging with Robert Pattinson


In an interview in which he mainly discusses the new vampire movie Twilight, Robert Pattinson dips into some discussion of the relationship between Salvador Dalí and Federico Garcia Lorca in the upcoming film Little Ashes (at about 8:40):

"I guess it's devastating. It's when two people essentially fall in love with each other arguably, but no one really knows what the extent of their actual relationship was. It ruins everything in both of their lives. Not so much in Lorca's but it really does destroy a lot of things in Dali. But mainly because he's such an intensely sensitive man. He had so many neuroses about everything. His sanitya and his senseibility was such a knife edge his whole life. In Twilight it's kind of the same thing, but they kind of figure it out whereas In Little Ashes they can't figure it out."

Pattinson plays Dalí. In late October I posted a few images from the film and last week the one-sheet.

Incidentally, actor Peter Facinelli, who fangs Pattinson in Twilight, bragged about it to E!: "It was great. I can actually say I'm one of the few guys who have necked with Rob Pattinson. A lot of people are envious of me."

  1. Robert is so charming, introspective, personable, and quirky... it's a very attractive combination. When he was talking about being bad boyfriend material he repeatedly used gender-neutral pronouns "when I like someone..." -- such a tease!

    He definitely has an open mind for roles. I believe he was sincere in his deference when asked if he'd be interested in more big-budget films: "It's always about the script."

    I thought he was cute in his small Harry Potter role, but I'm becoming a huge fan. Hope to see a lot more of him.

  2. Don't some guys eat? How is it that men in films are getting thinner, thinner, thinner....?

  3. Actually, he doesn't eat. That's sorta the whole point of the movie. His character is a "vegetarian" vampire.

  5. Does anyone know if Stephenie Meyer, the author of "Twilight" and a member of the Church of LDS, contributed to Prop 8?

    (Her name isn't in one of the databases but maybe she contributed as part of her family or businesses.)

    Also, check out this interview of Pattinson where he comes across as neurotic:

  6. Stephenie Meyer hasn't come out either way on the proposition, but has not contributed monetarily to it either-another blog had already looked into it.

  8. I absolutly love Rob! I wish hed come back to washington, and oregon. He's is my favorite actor. I'd want him as a boyfriend, he's crazy to think he's not boyfriend material.
