Robert Pattinson Talks Being Single…and the Trials of Fame

Sorry, Team Robsten; Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson tells the UK edition of OK! Magazine that he’s quite unattached—and his relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart is totally platonic.

Asked if he has a special lady in his life, R-Pattz replied, “No, no. I am young, free and single” and added that he and Stewart “are just very good friends.”

As for what kind of woman he might be inclined to hook up with, RoPa notes, “I like people being forward. Gosh, I don’t know. I like strong people, chiseled abs… I don’t know, I take what I can get!”

Ha-ha, what a jokester!

But Pattinson isn’t entirely in a jovial mood these days. When he wasn’t cracking wise about his ideal woman, R-Pattz revealed that the fame and attention that Twilight has brought is starting to wear thin on him.

“A mother recently gave me her baby and asked me: ‘Can you please bite her head?,'” Pattinson recalls. And when they’re not making bizarre requests, Edward Cullen obsessives are generally tracking the actor down like they were on some kind of urban safari.

“People ambush me and try to figure out what hotel I’m staying at, as well as wanting to touch my hair,” Pattinson laments. “Everyone just screams and screams. It still feels surreal.”

Poor baby. Poor, sexy baby.
