'Twilight' Star Robert Pattinson: My Mom Asked if I was Getting Married (PHOTOS)
Thanks to his hunky breakout role as vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight, Robert Pattinson is living the dream as a superstar. But there’s one aspect of fame the actor could do without: rumors.
“There was a magazine, with these pictures, saying I was getting married,” the 26-year-old Cosmopolis star told the recent issue of BlackBook, in which he flaunts some faux tattoos in a series of moody shots.
“No one ever knows what is true or what isn’t. Even my own mum called to ask me if it was true.”
But what is Pattinson like behind the press-junket, red-carpet persona?
When off set and away from the flashing lights, Pattinson is just a low-key L.A. guy.
“My circle of friends narrowed pretty quickly," he said of becoming a celebrity. Now he calls Silver Lake, Calif. home, where he spends his time whipping up homemade juices or soups and perusing new scripts and book synopses on Amazon.
And Pattinson isn't ashamed of his homebody tendencies. “I never go anywhere," he admitted matter-of-factly, “I don’t even know where anywhere is.”
“I once started a rumor on Entertainment Tonight that there was a deleted scat sex scene in Twilight and it didn’t even get picked up," he recalled. "I thought, ‘What the f**k? I’m giving you this stuff!”
As for his breakout Twilight fame, he credits "luck."
Until recently, his Hollywood status hadn't quite set in.
"I was just kind of running around with my pants down and my shoelaces untied and, amazingly, not falling," he said.
"Until this. I thought, ‘Oh f**k!’ Most people get 15 years of doing movies nobody sees. Now I’m at Cannes.”
