Monsieur Handjob Dishes on His Vancouver Digs, Disguises, & Fake-Names

The Guardian has a really amusing interview with Robert:
His Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella, once said that Pattinson can't lie; he also can't seem to stop talking. Right now he's describing the hotel room in Vancouver, where he's been filming New Moon, the second in the Twilight quartet. "I've been living in this windowless room on the 30-something floor. Because the people who built it were afraid of people killing themselves! It's one of those business hotels. I guess they're worried about not being able to charge so much for rooms if guests were killing themselves …"

Most actors live in apartments, or at least hotel suites, while on set. But not Pattinson: "I've settled there now. It would take about three weeks for me to gather all my belongings. I don't let the maids in. I don't even pull the duvet down now because I don't want to see what's underneath."

There are always fans waiting outside the hotel but he tries not to think about the phenomenal level of fame he's reached in north America; he says he'd go mad if he did. So he tries to disguise himself: "But instead I'm just getting more and more conspicuous; I'm wearing two hoods, a hat and sunglasses, which kind of stands out in the middle of the night. So I'm learning to sprint."

At times Pattinson sounds grown-up, but he also lapses into adolescent silliness. Ask if he has a fake hotel name and the giggling starts: "I was Clive Handjob in Paris. Everyone in the hotel called me 'Monsieur Handjob'. That was good, cheap fun."

  3. Some things seemed inaccurate in the full article and I can't imagine him blowing up at them. Wonders never cease.

  6. I can't help but love him, but I don't want our love for him to cause him pain. Please, don't misquote him and give him some space. Yeah, i suppose that won't happen.

  7. That's the first ever sort of negatively framed interview I've seen. Huh. I do feel bad for the guy, his time just being completely consumed with media and fans.

  8. 1. Poor chap seems so uncomfortable with the limelight.

    2. I can totally see him being the type of actor that gives up movies one day and sticks to theater.

    3. I'm beginning to see what KStew says about him not being able to lie.

    4. He really hasn't pulled back the duvet in 3 weeks? Wow.

  9. It has too be difficult being able to do whatever you want one day, to total mayhem the next. Can't imagine.. It has to wear on one quickly. I hope he uses this time to enjoy the experiences and take advantage to develop his craft. Cuz in a few years when the movies have all been released the hype of Edward/Rob will fade:(((

  10. Is it just me or is the reporter on this story really condesending??? Not Liking Her At All! Don't be picking on Rob!

  11. I think maybe Rob was playing around with the reporter...just a little, LOL! I agree Juju. I think Kristen is right. Rob just doesnt give a crap what anyone thinks and says stuff that would otherwise constitute as foot in mouth desise. Thats why I love him. But come on, that Monsiure Handjob bit was kinda hillarious!!!=)

  12. Rob wonderfully witty as usual, therefore my love for him only grows stronger. lol

    But after reading the whole article at The Guardian, I kinda wanna punch Amy Raphael in the face. I really hate the media sometimes.

  13. I actually thing that he does care... I think most of his frustration comes from not knowing or understanding that in many ways his words carries weight. He needs to learn to think before he speaks
