Robert Pattinson: I Want to Be Mean

Robert Pattinson may be a sweetheart, but the Twilight hunk claims that he has a nasty side and wants to let it loose on X Factor.

The 24-year-old dreamboat said that he envies X Factor and American Idol meanie Simon Cowell for getting paid to be nasty to people all day:

It would be one of the best things ever to get paid for handing out Simon Cowell-style insults for the day. I wouldn’t want to be one of the nice guys, I’d want to be like Simon – otherwise it’s no fun.

RPattz later said that he didn’t thinks that Simon is simply “painfully honest” which is what makes him “so good.” Who knew Rob was a fan of tough criticism?

At the very least, maybe the folks at American Idol have found a good replacement for Simon.
