It seems that every time Robert Pattinson speaks off script he gets less attractive.
This time it's to the U.K.'s Daily Mirror about how much of a limp-fisted wimp he was in a fight scene with a stunt man for Remember Me.
"I hit with what I thought was my full strength. I hit his face about four times. And every time I was like 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry' and he was like 'it's fine. It didn't really hurt.' That was kind of an ego deflator."
He admitted he hasn't been in a fight in real life "for a long time".
"I'm too scared. I think if I got into a fight now someone would just kill me." [Source: Mirror]
From vagina allergies that make us question his sexuality to the realization that "yes, Robert, you do indeed kind of look like a cartoon character," we have to ask: Is he trying to make himself unappealing? It's not that far-fetched of an idea. Men Have Insecurities, Just Like Women
Previously we have reported on his inability to see anything of worth in himself: "I just don't take any of [the attention] seriously. It's just a job and while it's a job I love, girls scream out for Edward, not Robert. I still can't get a date."
And maybe he has a point. It's his characters that we love. Not him.
Time and time again it just seems that he is uncomfortable in his skin and completely lacking in confidence. Perhaps it's just a British thing, but this self-deprecating humor is bordering on sniveling self-consciousness. And that's not attractive on anyone.
Update: Does not this interview with The Sun make Robert Pattinson seem on the verge of a mental breakdown AND confirm everything above?
Being well known is a real burden. I'm less open and have noticed that I'm actually getting paranoid.
If people push themselves on me I find it grueling and repulsive. If I even think someone wants to approach me I feel the need to scream, 'What do you want of me'. Then later I think, 'What if this person only wanted to be nice?' "
It's all been given so easily. What did I do to deserve this adulation? I am convinced I need to work at least ten full years to actually earn the status I've apparently being given. The more I act different characters the more I learn. I know it might be risky, especially with the added pressure of fame. Certainly with the fame that has been thrown in my lap."
"I want to grow as an actor. I don't want to be typecast as the romantic hero. I'm not going about wishing everything was back to how it was in the past - although sometimes I do as it was so much easier."
