Alex Meraz: Robert Pattinson Smells Like Roses


Alex Meraz, who plays Paul, a member of Jacob Black's Quileute wolf pack in the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon, was asked about rumors that Pattinson stinks because he never showers.

Said Meraz: "He smells like roses! The first time I met him, I was like, 'Dude, you smell fantastic!' I don't know where people get this stuff from. He blushed and did his hair thing. He's comfortable in his own sexuality."

  2. Really Alex? You complimented him on how he smelled? Really?

    Jesus, its like PR people don't even try anymore, they just assume that the public are a bunch of salivating idiots.

  6. alex is a mejicano-americano born and raised in arizona. his origins are in the state of michoacan, mexico. but, according to the piss-ant brad, he's probably not mexican enough.

  8. Yeah, I had the same impression as Scott... especially with the "He's comfortable in his own sexuality" bit. What the hell did that have to do with anything? That whole speel was obviously concocted by a PR person and made for Meraz to rehearse.

  9. @SCOTT and RP,

    when did you two give up trying?

  10. @Nic

    Could you clarify that question for us?

  11. "Jesus, its like PR people don't even try anymore...."

    Scott, you watch your bigoted mouth! Why, some of my best trade was Puerto Rican. And they smelled better than you'll ever......most of 'em.

  12. Wow - I had taken PR to mean Public Relations, as in wow, his handlers really picked a lame way to try and convince the salivating public that he doesn't stink as much as he's rumoured too.

    I agree, he is a cutie. Alex is far cuter than yuck pattinson

    I am surprised the PR people let the "smells like roses...." thing slip by their anti-gay radar

    I smell like roses. It's true, Puerto Ricans tell me that all the time.

    Posted by: Scott | Apr 17, 2009 5:55:55 PM

  15. sure,SCOTT, i'll clarify my question. when did pat, threadbare responses begin to equal rationality? this boy says something off the cuff (for, why should we presume otherwise?) yet, you and RP jump to unsubstantiated conclusions. i will repeat the question: "when did you two give up trying?"

    @DERRICK fp, the kid is mexican, not puerto-rican. no offence, but i like to keep my flavors straight.

  16. @Nic

    Uhm... What else did I need to say? The whole story is pretty clearly a PR move to try and head off this stupid "Robert Pattenson smells" meme. The PR guy could have tried a bit harder. Why did that need to be expounded upon?

    And just because there is always one, PR means "Press Relations" not "Puerto Rican". I only know one Puerto Rican who thinks I'm an idiot but I don't think that guys attitude towards me is representative of the island as a whole.

  17. My god pattinson is sexy as hell.
    Yummy yummy

  18. SCOTT,
    no harm, no foul. don't, however, confuse my comment with DERRICK's. as far as i can tell, DERRICK is a good-natured, wise-ass that can play with words as well as anyone. lookit, he made PR (public relations) into puerto-rican. and, you took his comment at face value. who's the fool?

    this is what i don't like: the compartmentalization of humans. to wit: i have questions about what's going on in the middle-east, so i hate jews or i hate islam.
    i question barack (though, right now i've got his back) and i'm a racist. i supported hillary, so i'm a lesbian feminist. i support my culture, but i am not mexican enough. where will this all end?

    let's be nicer to each other.

    Posted by: nic | Apr 18, 2009 7:02:31 AM

  19. You do hate jews, Nic. YOU DO. You're an antisemite, and I proved it.

    He smells like what again? Roses? Is this the beginning of a bromance? Nah.
