Robert Pattinson is apparently some kind of heartthrob

November 5th, 2008 // 141 Comments

Robert Pattinson, star of the chock full o’ brooding film Twilight, is your new heartthrob, ladies. Or at least that’s what the Tiger Beat on The Geekologie Writer’s desk told me. Anyway, I don’t really see the appeal of this guy. He looks baked out of his mind in every single shot. And to prove my point, check out how he signed his name on the hand imprint at Planet Hollywood in New York yesterday. What was the thought process here? ” Hmm, let’s see. Lots of letters in my name – better start in the middle. That makes sense. R… O… B… shit. Now would me a good time for my chicken fingers to arrive.”

    #42 “I dont know why but he is much cuter in the movie with vampire makeup than in rela life….Weird”

    maybe because he’s wearing makeup?

    Not nearly beautiful enough to be Edward. I’m sure there were plenty of other much more attractive guys who could play the part better. (And for those of you who have no idea who he is, he also plays Cedric in the HP4 movie.)

    Okay, i want to know what the hell was this guy doing that was so strenuous at planet hollywood that this douche nozzle broke into a massive sweat that drenched his pits. Jesus it looks like someone just sprayed him with a hose. Its called anti-perspirant, you might want to try some, douchenozzle.

    I guess between 7:47pm-8:53pm the teenage girls who are disney zombies jump on here with their comments. Go hug your Miley or Zack posters.

  5. peeeeooooopeo

    This is not how I pictured Edward, I’m so disappointed.

  6. Boonie

    He looks like he’s got a bad comb-over carefully disguised as a “hat”. Not bad for a sweaty retarded guy, I guess.

    Maybe if he lost the knit cap he wouldn’t sweat so much!!

  10. WE have a panic situation here, folks?

  11. timmy the dying boy

    Looks like we’ve finally found someone who can really give Spencer a run for his money.

    I LOOOOVE HIM! He is so down to earth in real life! I don’t think he’s grasped the magnitude of his stardom yet. He’ll be HUGE!! Just wait! Oh & I’m late 20′s & I loooved the books. So it’s not just a teen based appeal…everyone at my work loved them too & we have a broad age spectrum. The only downfall is that with all the tools & poor excuses for men out there no guy will ever measure up again! :( Sad really…maybe if we could force all the men out there to read it they’d get a clue…. Guess that’s why they call it fiction… *sighhh*

    @25 & 37 – Does the make Mexico Americas ass?

  15. randomcommenter

    he was in one of the Harry Potter movies…if he weren’t “famous” he’d probably be at a bar getting shot down…because of his lame self-absorbed attempts at scoring.

  16. Lexi

    You just don’t understand his kind of sexy. Become a teenage girl, read the Twilight Saga, and then we will talk.

    #53 Please make up your mind. Is douche nozzle one word or two. And an FYI, calling someone a douche nozzle more than once in a comment automatically points said douche nozzle back to the douche nozzle over using aforementioned insult.

  22. m

    haha all this male competition is funny

    but #7 was sooo funny… how dare he overlook that left button

  23. kate

    i always pictured Henry Cavill as edward . Robert = fail

  24. woo

    @74…I never thought of that but yea Henry Cavill would work

    theyre going to have to pretty him up for this movie for suuure

  25. KEVIN

    N° 9 wow !!! so funnyI had a great laugh

  26. @64

    Yes it does.

  27. Minerva

    @15:”who? and what the eff is twilight?”
    It’s a book mostly read by teen (or preteen) girls and old goth women. You know because they believe being a vampire is SOOO COOL and they are dumb enough to say things like “The only downfall is that with all the tools & poor excuses for men out there no guy will ever measure up again!” (thanks to #62 for giving us such a fine example)

  28. orange

    if he would lose the hat, he would be super hot. he sort of has the creepy, scuzzy, but mysterious and dirty (in a good way) jonathan rhys meyers type of hot.

  29. sweat marks are so cool

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!
    OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!

  30. Mick

    That guy is pretty hot but I don’t know what the hell twilight is.

  31. RB

    WOW… #62…. your a huge fat chick aren’t you? You are embarassing yourself.

  32. RB

    WOW… #62…. you’re a huge fat chick aren’t you? You are embarassing yourself.

  33. aaaaaa

    HOLY MOLY HE IS SO ATTRACTIVE IT HURTS.

  34. Vince Lombardi

    What I find amazing is a woman’s ability to equate some kind of performance talent to “cute.” This guy, at least from these photos, certainly doesn’t come across as “cute,” “fine,” or “OMG handsome.” Take off his tie and he looks like any guy in high school shop class. But give him a role on TV or in a movie, or hand him a guitar, and all of a sudden he’s transformed into something that gets women damp in the panties. At least men understand that talent doesn’t somehow bolster your looks. Ellen DeGeneres is all kinds of talented doing stand up, but I think even she’d agree she’s not pretty. America Ferrera doesn’t get better looking because she can act. Nikki Blonski doesn’t turn into a Victoria’s Secret model when she sings.

  35. Hmmm…..my 13 year old daughter has read all those books and she is SUPER pissed that they used that guy. Apparently he looks nothing like the character in the book. She doesn’t think he’s cute.

    But I do……..wah hahahahhhaha!!

  36. Sally

    He’s just your average sleazy, crusty, sweaty, dirty, untalented, greasy, cheesy, stinking shitstain.

  37. Jenine

    Fuck Edward Cullen. Cedric Diggory ftw.

  38. sandy

    #74 — apparently Henry Cavill was Stephenie Meyer’s (Twilight author) original vision of Edward. I wonder why they didn’t use him.

    About Twilight being a teen thing… yeah, it is for sure, but I’m over 40 and I loved the books too. As far as this dude being Edward, he isn’t how I pictured Edward either, but I’m withholding judgement until I see the movie. His look fits enough that if the performance is good he will have pulled it off.

    Regarding the casting overall, I think Bella actress is right on, but the vampires should have been more attractive, with the exception of the Dr. Cullen actor, who seems like a perfect fit. But again, maybe it will all come together in the movie.

    A few people here might know what I am talking about. I would hope most girls in the Twilight demographic aren’t hanging out on a site as morally questionable as this one.

    Now that I’ve got that out, I am going back to my adult life.

    #85, Vince Lombardi, is an idiot. Women don’t think that Jack Black is OMG SO HOT because he’s in movies, neither do they feel the same way towards Seth Rogan, or that McLovin kid. Ellen Degeneris, America Ferrera, and Nicky Blonski are bad comparisons to this guy (even though I think America Ferrera is pretty, but you don’t, so it doesn’t work). Maybe if I took away his tie e would look like someone from a highchool shop class, but he as nice eyes, nice teeth, a nice body, and really nice bone structure; therefore, girls would still find him attractive. Regardless of acting resume.

    @ 85: Maybe it’s because women aren’t as shallow as men.

  41. Wow sir, you’re a real idiot for bashing on Rob. Not only is he brutally good looking and probably making 10x what you are at the moment-he’s extremely down to earth and nice. This fame hit him like a ton of bricks and he has yet to learn how to handle it..he had no intentions of all this attention. Give him a break and try to sit and talk with him before you talk crap. Geez your an idiot.

  42. boo

    He reminds me of a young Jouquin Phoenix, who may be a good actor but is not one of the most attractive people I can think of.

    Also, I tried to read Twilight and I just got annoyed. Damn it, kiss her, bite her, do SOMETHING other than whine about how they are no good for each other. You would have to be a teenage girl to like that book.

  43. CR

    Oh get off him already. You don’t think he’s good looking? Fine, but stop calling him names. It only makes you look like a belligerent child. Go find someone you do like to drool over. Scrolling through comment after comment of crude nastiness is just annoying.

    And no, I don’t care about Robert Pattinson one way or the other, but it would be interesting to see people comment without attacking things as though they just crawled out of the nearest gutter.

  44. KimberWolf

    I agree, he’s no Edward. I know they could have picked probably anyone else in the room to look more the part. I hope he’s incredibly talented, but I’m not optimistic.

  45. janey

    he actually is (or was?) a good looking guy, in many photos and Harry Potter 4. i think he wasnt experienced or mature enough to get cast in a role with such a large fanbase and is going nuts. he seems to be cracking and doing drugs from the strain of his sudden fame. he needs to clean himself up and realize what he has going is a good thing instead of just showing up looking like Amy Winehouse

  46. Christienne

    i hope all the guys who read this page realize —

    he looks as much in real life like his photoshopped promo photos of himself as your precious “beautiful” female stars look like theirs.

  47. michq

    id hit that!

    hes pretty hot. drool!

  48. lynz

    you can’t even make fun of him… his pit stains and everything are way hot.. no joke

  49. Malffy Hernandes

    I was there , the reason why his autograph’s fucked up is cause the cement got hard cause he showed up late. He’s gorge.
