Robert Pattinson is finally opening up about his breakup with former “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart and how she cheated on him with married director Rupert Sanders.
In fact, the actor insists that he no longer cares about the cheating scandal that broke apart his relationship along with Rupert’s marriage to Liberty Ross. He called the split “normal” because they are “just young people”.
In a new interview with “Esquire”, the British actor said, “S**t happens, you know? It’s just young people….it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t?”
He also revealed that after they called it quits, he still felt protective over Kristen. He said, “The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict. It’s like that scene in ‘Doubt’, where he’s talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”
Despite being rich, famous and successful, he still doesn’t get why people are still interested in him. He said, “I don’t understand why. I think it goes through periods where you’re assigned ‘this is the guy to follow’. But whenever I see a bunch of paparazzi hanging out, I always think, ‘Oh God, what have they found out!’ Oh, that love child! I totally forgot!”
He also talked about being famous enough to be on the guest list even though his people didn’t call ahead — and that’s how he knew he’d made in it the world of entertainment. He added, “I was going to clubs in L.A. and you had to call the promoters ahead of time to get on the guest list. But one time I forgot to call, and I was on the list anyway. That’s when I knew. I showed up with mustard down my t-shirt and they’re like giving me the wink, ‘Yeah, man, you’re on the list.'”
With regard to his sex symbol status, he would like you to know that it doesn’t always seem that way — especially when filming. He was filming a racy scene with Julianne Moore in “Maps To The Stars” and talked of an embarrassing moment on set. He said, “I noticed I was sweating. Like really heavy sweat. I remember trying to catch the drops as they fell onto her back. It was weird. Huge splashing drops. At one point she turned around and said, ‘Are you alright?'”
