Twilight star made paranoid by fans

Robert PattinsonTwilight star Robert Pattinson admits that he’s become a little paranoid due to his overzealous fans. The 22-year-old British actor, who had little experience with fans prior to playing the romantic lead in Twilight, can’t believe how much his life has changed. When his character — a “good” vampire — first appears onscreen in the movie, his fans squeal with delight, so it doesn’t take much imagination to realize what they do when they find themselves face-to-face with the new teen idol. WENN quotes him as saying: “People ambush me in public and ask me to bite them and want to touch my hair. I just don’t want someone to have a needle and give me AIDS and I don’t want to get shot or stabbed. This is my life.” He says that the noise from screaming girls at the film’s Los Angeles premiere was so loud that he thought, “Oh my God. Are they going to blow the place up?”

    Oh, I feel so bad for the poor guy. He obviously didn’t know what he was getting himself into, and is now in the center of one of the most vast, annoying fanbases, ever. Hopefully the Twilight phase will pass soon, ’cause he obviously doesn’t like it too much…

    i feel really sorry for him also. though he does look good as a vampire,he’s actually human and i can’t say i’d want him to bite me. that’s just weird! poor robert. he put a whole new meaning to “it hurts to be beautiful”. and he gets to look forward to at least 3 other movies and more and more girls!

    He is paranoid from all the drugs he is taking! Poor guy indeed.

    He looks like he’s totally baked in this picture. Needs to get off the drugs and get some sleep to get rid of those big black bags under his eyes; could use a haircut…or at least a brush, and that unibrow MUST GO! Other than that, yeah…I’d tell him to “BITE ME!” It wouldn’t be in a nice, seducing way though!! LOL 😀

    Suneagle Thought; I said it once and I’ll say it again.. It should be illegal to go up to a star figure with out consent… IE; Autograph session Premiers Etc… People in general have no respect and it’s really to bad the government doesnt step in and make it a law that you can’t just take pictures or hound them for autographs it stupid! The stars and such are their for a reason to give us entertainment or help us in everyday life by being a figure in the public eye IE: The president or news reporters etc… Why oh why do we need to step in between their personal life… Magazines like people and esquire the ones some of you buy out their…When bought just know your supporting this whole concept… Popperatzis and hounding annoying fans …, It should be illegal..!! What’s wrong with nodding your head or waving hi and then cont…, when you spot them on the street? Why do you need to rip their clothes off and stab them with a needle full of Aids? LOL ( I thought that was over paranoid) But it’s true it’s not fair that they should have to feel this way it’s no wonder then that they get into durgs… MAKE IT ILLEAGLE!!!

    i think it might be a little hard to make hounding celebrities illegal. maybe they can (and should)put restrictions on how the paparazzis can go about their job (and that is their job. they get paid and support their families with it which i hate). but to make a law telling regular people that they cannot take a picture or ask for an autograph from a famous person, that’s hard and unrealistic. you can’t patrol the streets and confiscate cameras from everyone who’s near a celebrity. i agree though that they deserve their space. i’m not one who thinks that just because they’re an actor or musician that they actually just want the fame and attention. its what they want. but unfortunately it comes with the territory.

    ps: i feel bad for him but i don’t think he should go around giving people ideas of what they can do to him or what it is he’s expecting. “a needle and give hims AIDS”? well yeah now you can start worrying…

    twilight fans need a reality check. before i was a fan myself, i heard about girls going crazy over some stupid book character vampire guy. i thought it was the stupidest thing ever, because he is obviously fictional; simply a made up character by stephanie and nothing more. but now that i am a fan, i know how it feels to want edward cullen to be real. the thing is, i know when to stop – i know the difference between robert and edward but others don’t, which they really should get help for. i’m not trying to offend anyone but people need to get this straight and through to their heads; he’s an actor, not a vampire, so get off his case and go bite yourself.

    I understand how frustrating it must be to be continuously approached by young girls that want to you to bite them and such. It must get old really fast. I feel for the guy. I don’t think anyone anticipated Twilight to be what it has become, especially not Robert Pattinson. He has the most annoying fan base and can’t do anything about it. And the saddest thing is he’s got 3 more movies to make before he can really do anything about it. That being said, you’d bet your ass I’d ask him to bite me…

  9. Katie_420 • December 10, 2008 @ 7:40 PM

    wow he looks like he is some creeper tryin to seduce someone but in a creepy way lmfao…. in the movie i must admit they made him out to be god hot but i would say he is a 6 on the hottie scale!

  10. Mr. Know it all • December 10, 2008 @ 9:01 PM

    o please…

  11. merica • December 11, 2008 @ 12:06 AM

    Cut the crap this guy looks high as a kite. No wonder he’s paranoid it’s from all the reefer he’s been smoking. Yeah i guess he had no idea what the hell he was getting himself into but the guy I guess needs a break from his screaming fans. Girls can be a bit much when it comes to male celebrities. Yeah the guys is somewhat attractive but he’s not the hottest guy ever.

  12. Kimbo • December 11, 2008 @ 2:31 PM

    These Twilight kids are all drug addicts.

  13. r0ckst4r • December 11, 2008 @ 4:30 PM

    Katie_420: a 6? Really? If you combine the accent and the height, cuz he’s actually decently tall, and the hair and everything I would’ve given him a 7 or 7.5. However in the movie, he’s a straight up 12.

  14. Nancy • December 11, 2008 @ 5:55 PM

    As long as he’s on drugs, he’s a ZERO in my books!

    ~click it!

  15. B.J. • December 11, 2008 @ 11:18 PM

    Hey…I am a star in a crappy hit movie. Better smoke crack with Kristen Stewart.

  16. melissa • December 12, 2008 @ 6:35 AM

    ok he just has to calm down a bit, yes the fan are psycotic but i really don’t think people are aiming to kill him. if he’s this much on edge then maybe he needs a joint, spark the dubby and pass it around the circle man, chill out, any way im a huge fan to but im sure as hell not going to mob the poor guy, if i was famous i would want my damn pay cheak and that it, he is just a person a cute person yes but still just a regular guy he just has a cool job

    I think it just horrible how stars are treated, granted they do live a nice life, but in comparison, we go to work, and when it’s over, it’s over. We get to have a private (as we want it) personal life. I think it sort of sad that they are treated as if they were products than people. I think something has to be done, about this by the government, to make selling/publishing a photo illegal in general, without the consent of the person in it.

  18. Zoe • March 29, 2009 @ 12:15 AM

    aww that is so cute that he is freaking out about crazy fan but eventually it will all calm down and then he wont have to worry, but people asking him if they can touch his hair and bite them that is just eww.
