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.”

    This is the guy the author originally wanted for Edward:

    Much better choice, I think.

  4. Jeff

    Unibrow? check…
    Uncontrollable sweat? check..
    Stinks like B.O.? check…

    Well he’s got 3 hot qualities there!

  5. meow

    Cedric Diggory is hawt!!!

  6. meow

    …and has dreamy eyes!!!
    I don’t care if he does look baked…as long as he shares:P

  7. bitch

    Did he forget his deodorant? That’s so gross.

    he’s actually a pretty decent actor. most of his work before hp and twilight consisted of period pieces and a movie for british tv. he also has a biopic on salvador dali that looks pretty interesting. i don’t think people should brush the dude off for trying to make a buck capitalizing on teenage hormones.
    p.s and the whole greasy thing is “so in right now’ w/ young hollywood hahah

  9. friendlyfires

    DRUG ADDICT!
    REHAB!
    oh and … uh …
    GAY!

    Please give Robert Pattinson a break-everybody sweats even with deodorant on!!!! Have some of you considered that he might be a little stressed out with all of the fans screaming at him? Plus the movie isn’t even out yet and his performance is already being discussed. I’ve seen lots of photos of him and IMO he’s very attractive with and without makeup.

  11. Alina

    Uuuugh, SO HOT. I love you, Rob :)

    Robert wouldn’t of been my first pick for Edward either. I would of picked someone like Jay Kenneth Johnson (Phillip Days of Our Lives), Hayden Christensen, or even Chace Crawford. I can’t see Henry Cavill as Edward at all, he looks too old to be 17 first of all and second of all I don’t see him looking that great with blonder colored hair. I can’t think of anyone that is actually around 17 years old that would of been a good choice for Edward either, since Edward is described as kind of looking like a Greek God. I can live with Pattinson I guess, but I still think there were better choices for his part. No one could possibly measure up to what Edward is in the book, as far as looks go, but still they could of done better with the casting of him. Kristen Stewart as Bella is right on, that is exactly how I picture Bella. The only cast member that looks out of place to me is Nikki Reed as Rosalie. Since Nikki is naturally dark haired, putting a blond wig on her looks so strange and fake. I’d also like to add that not everyone that read the Twilight books are teenagers or goth women, whatever you said. Lots of people read them! Probably not a lot of people that come on this site read them, but a lot of people do lol…

    ok like rob is absolultly handsome and it does not matter what he looks like cause that is just bening so damn superficial and he is an awsome actor and it’s not his fault that he looks this way , maybe he didn’t have time to put deodorent on with all this papparazzie stalking him give him a break , maybe he woke up late but it is not his fault so leave him alone he is sexy and will always be . Man i would so want to date him i mean it is not all about looks and in the movie twilight he is so hott so anyone who thinks he is ugly .,….well they can just go screw there dad or somethign but rob is an awsome edward in the movie .

    Oh please, girls just like him because he’s gonna play Edward Cullen, when he was playing Cedric there was what… 1/20 of girls who thought he was hot. And Twilight is so juvenile/stupid. Honestly, vampires who SHINY in the sun? A supposed-to-be super hot vampire who is a virgin since 1901? Yeah, right. What is Stephenie Meyer, 13?

  16. commonsense

    and how old are u jess 5?

  17. twilight

    i don’t think anyone should criticize an artist just because ur a slut and u want the main character to sleep with everyone……..if u want that kind of story there are many selections to choose from

  18. twilight

  19. He looks alot better with his facial hair shaved; like in twilight.

  20. Okay, who cares….
    Like No one here has accidently stepped out of the house in a rush and forgot to put deodorant. He’s ONLY HUMAN, in case you guys forgot. I think he is a Great Actor and Great Musician, it’s awkward seeing girls like almost die when the trailers are on oh my gosh. Poor Rob, I can’t imagine what it’s like walking into a million flash and hearing nothing but ‘AHHHH’ ‘Oh my God, I Love You Rob’ ‘AHHHH’ ‘Bite Me’. Whoa, Your BRAVE! Well, I think its crazy, because half this “girls” are in love with “Edward Cullen” and are too young to even look at. I am not going to LIE I find Robert VERY attractive but like most assumptions…It’s because everything his character is HOTT, We’ll he makes Edward hot, but I prefer Messy hair and The blue eyes. I am also amazed at the fact that he can not find anyone to date? I mean maybe he means he goes on dates but no one wants a relationship he might want??? I am guessing. I know, I would be in line but ya know he famous I think once he finds someone it will be overwhelming to keep them. Whether he wants to commit or they do. I think I would agree to dating where no one knows so it was on the DL, I couldn’t imagine every girl alive hating me or every photographer trying to snap a picture with a stupid story to it. UGH, Stressfull just thinking about it. Is this like a Celebrity Bashing page? It seems like you have alot of bashing on here. Well I have said enough lol. Rob, take care one day you will be able to walk down the street without having people follow you screaming at you. When that is I dont know but it will eventually come hopefully =)

    People always assume that Twilight appeals to only teenagers…but Ive seen moms going ga-ga over this guy..

    Maybe he really looked good in the movie but I hope in real life he acts more heartthrob-ish…

  22. Caroline

    I don’t understand the whole heartthrob thing. I mean, sure, people sweat- but this guy should realize by now that he’s in the eye of the media. Amber said “Like No one here has accidently stepped out of the house in a rush and forgot to put deodorant. He’s ONLY HUMAN” But if he just stepped out of the house in a rush on his way to Planet Hollywood to promote Twilight, then he’s not very dedicated to his fans or the movie that made him famous (Lets face it, Harry Potter didn’t do anything for him compared to Twilight) Its part of this guy’s job to look good in public. We’re all only human, but if a doctor forgets to wash his/her hands before brain surgury, do we say it’s alright because they’re only human? It’s their JOB. This guy gets paid to show up looking good, stick his hands in clay, and write his name– and he can’t even do that to the best of his ability? Sure, I don’t know him as a person, but from what I’ve seen of him in the media, he’s not the kind of actor I’d look up to. Have you seen what actors like Johnny Depp do? A little boy asked for a hat he was wearing during filming, and he promised he could have it when the movie was finished. He followed through with that promise. Johnny does tons of things for his fans, he cares. Robert has yet to gain my respect in that way. Johnny Depp has this thing, where no matter what he wears he’ll always look like a god. He can try to downplay his looks to no end, but he will always, always, look amazing. Robert has to understand he doesnt have that same privilage, and it would be nice if he tried a little harder. It seems like he’s actually trying to look like he’s NOT trying. As if, he’s going for an “I’m too cool to care” look. When Johnny Depp wears his piles of jewellry, it has meaning. Like a bracelet with the name of an aspiring child actor who died of cancer, or a bracelet his daughter made. (Yeah, I kind of have a thing for Johnny Depp, but at least he’s admirable!) And Robert has a unibrow. I mean, there’s hair in between his eyebrows. When you know that close-up pictures will be taken of you, you pluck it. Seriously…

    So until this guy learns that people watch him and that he has to step it up, I really don’t see reason for his success to continue. It doesnt matter how talented you are, public appearances are part of the job.

    wow. people really start up big conversations on here about this. I do think he is hot. I also think the girl who starred as Bella fit the look to a T but def not a good actress in the movie. To me, she came across rude and mean. But i did like it and i love the books. And yes, Robert is super fine.

  24. falon

    well,,,
    i personally am madly in love with rob,,
    my family is worried about me..
    ha ha
    i hated and thought he was
    the ugliest thing
    i have ever seen
    until i read the books
    and seen the movie,,
    now i know everything
    about this guy
    he is not perfect
    but i not a horrible
    person either,,
    i think now that
    any girl that he has
    ever purposed to
    is extremely lucky
    and they all have said no,,
    but you have no idea
    of what i would say if he purposed
    to me,,i would pass out on the floor
    i dont even care that he
    has purposed about
    10 times,,,but i will kill
    someone to be with
    robert thomas pattinson

    HE’S SO FRICKEN HOT AND SEXY!

  27. Nicky

    I actually think Robert Pattinson is probably, with abit of time and practice, going to become a decent actor and seems to have a decent personality. Problem is when you have too intense media scrutiny, everything he does/says gets exaggerated or turns into lies etc. Yeah, he probably looks like he is really trying to not care, but to me, it doesn’t look like it is coming from a superficial place….I think he is telling HIMSELF as much as he is telling US that he doesn’t care about the hype….he HAS to do that, because if he gets overwhelmed by his own press, it could totally screw him up. He is probably really scared about becoming a Hollywood asshole, because he is so young and potentially impressionable. I do feel for him, and hope he is having a media-free break in London. He isn’t a god or Edward or perfect, but he isn’t an asshole either. Like most of us, he is somewhere in between.

  28. Jade

    Ahhh who cares? Lets face it, we all get sweaty armpits lol. And I didn’t notice them until I read someones comment about them. I was too busy staring at his too perfect face…
    HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE HOW GORGEOUS HE IS?! He is Edward. No one else could play him as he is the most perfect looking man ever.

  29. Rob Pattinson is unbelievably sexy. He’s got that smouldering look down pat.

  30. Mary

    All of the girls on here know very well that they have seen Twilight and thought he was drop dead gorgeous and were more likely squeeling in the theater because of it.. And then they want to come on here and act like they didn’t and say that he is gross and everything else.. Give me a break.. All of the guy’s on here will automatically say these things, but the girls are something else..

    I really hate pictures like this, It pisses me off to no end.. Not just with Robert, but with any celebrity on Earth.. Like their dumbass doesn’t have bodily functions.. It is downright pathetic and they need to do something better with their no shit time and get their head out of their ass..

  31. good to see hes a real man,,you know, sweats,blows his nose, scratches his ass, probley even farts,,,this skinny, half baked young man,,,,is a sex bomb,

    i,de smoke one with him

  32. sassygirl

    #42 i totally disagree. i think the real guy is way better than edward cullen, as far as looks go. edward seems a bit obtuse compared to the real, geniune thing.

  33. Ai

    Haha, love the monologue at the end. Funny!

  34. maaarrriiiaaa

    i loveeee edward cullen though i dont like robert pattinson. does he have aswiming pool under his arm pitts’

  35. TwilightSucks

    Funny how fame and fortune can make even the ugliest people attractive. Media hype is the only thing that makes this guy ‘hot’ because otherwise none of you would look twice at a guy who looks like he does. He looks high, doesn’t know how to dress himself properly for a formal event, and has bad fashion sense. Who the hell wears a hat like that but a douchebag?

  36. twillightisfortwinks

    He’s ugly, He actually does look like he does drugs. I know all you 13 yr olds may ( for -insertreasonoftheweekhere-) think its hot to have red eyelids and lines in your forehead, but adults know this looks like you’ve been on blow for 3 days straight. Unreal. Cant talk clearly either. And I dont mean that because he is English.

  37. manu

    he is actually so sexyyyy
    i dont even understand why people always make such a big deal out of this.
    yes, ofcourse people have different opinions on who they think is hot,
    but do you really think stephenie meyer would have agreed to letting him play edward cullen is he wasnt at least a little good looking? jesus!
