“I’m, like, a compulsive eater,” he says, by way of a revelation. “I’m going to be so fat when I’m older, it’s ridiculous.” But this is hard to believe, judging by his narrow frame. He tells a story about wolfing down most of a 40-ounce bag of Pretzel M&M’s while reading a book of essays by David Foster Wallace. “I had a complete breakdown and literally threw them down the toilet,” he says.” —Robert Pattinson to Vanity Fair
“Your world gets smaller. There’s a massive contraction. And the weirdest thing is the more you contract it, the more the [public] interest goes up. It’s so crazy. There’s no way around it.

“A little sun round my belly button like Sisqo.” —Robert Pattinson responding the fan question “If you got a tattoo what would it b & why?” (via)
“[Pauses, then laughs] For one thing, it would be a terrible marketing tool and it’s not utilized very well at all. People will say anything. I’m still amazed that people even believe anything [that’s said about us]. I mean, it’s one of the craziest things about the whole situation, where you can see the whole — is paradigm the right word? — of celebrity gossip, celebrity culture type stuff that’s literally entirely made up. There’s a story line. You have a set character and your story line is written for you. And it doesn’t matter what you do.” —Robert Pattinson’s response to people who think his relationship with Kristen Stewart is being used as a marketing tool. (x)
“I was thinking I must have got it. Then I met a bunch of other actors and they were like, ‘Oh, that Michôd, he keeps you at his house for hours’. That made me lose all my confidence. So I was really shocked when I got it.” —Robert Pattinson on The Rover’s auditions.
“I don’t know, I mean I guess I’m quite a genuinely insecure person, and so it’s not very hard for me. I mean, it’s sort of like, I think even if someone says that something is good you’ve got to be pretty dumb to let your head get big, especially now when everything about your life is reported. I don’t understand people who still have a big ego who are actors. It’s like, everyone knows who you are, everyone knows you are just a vain moron, [laughter] and that’s what every actor is. [laughter]” —Robert Pattinson on what he does to keep grounded.
