Rob Pattinson’s Telling Details
The notoriously lusted-after Twilight star Robert Pattinson opened up for an insightful interview with Details magazine. The usually guarded international heartthrob reflected on his whirlwind rise to uber-fame, his upcoming drama Remember Me, and his rather noteworthy feelings about nude models and pornography.
Of his intense privacy and introverted persona after shooting to the heights of stardom by following up his small role in the Harry Potter films by embodying the vampire of many boys’ and girls’ dreams, Edward Cullen in Twilight, Pattinson realizes mid interview, "I can barely remember the last two years. Not like a haze of partying or anything like that. Just ... it's been crazy." The New Moon star says he’s relinquished some control of his future now. “You eventually realize you can't make every single decision. I was always building,” he explains, “always protecting something. At the same time, I seemed to be losing the ability to move. I'd protected myself into checkmate. Even mentally."
Channeling an ‘80s, neon-excess style for the Details photo shoot, the handsome actor had a rather stark reaction to spending hours with the fully nude models included in the spread.
"I really hate vaginas. I'm allergic to vagina,” Pattinson states. “But I can't say I had no idea, because it was a 12-hour shoot, so you kind of get the picture that these women are going to stay naked after, like, five or six hours. But I wasn't exactly prepared. I had no idea what to say to these girls. Thank God I was hungover.”
Pattinson did say he thought the throwback styling kept things a little more innocent than graphic in tone. “This shoot, it's kind of eighties nakedness, you know? If you look at porn in, like, the eighties, there was something kind of quaint about it, quite sweet — like this little naked community. The people who made it liked it, they had respect for it,” he concludes, before adding, “Not remotely like the porn that's available now. No community in it at all. It's just everything, everywhere."
Pattinson’s new film, Remember Me, premieres in theaters March 12.
