I think we can all agree that Robert Pattinson is pretty darn cool. Not only is he a talented actor, but he also dresses the part of a crazy gangster wonderfully. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always make for the most comfortable of situations when shooting a movie. Here is a funny story about one particular incident that happened during the the filming of the latest installment of the Twilight franchise.
Twilight franchise star Robert Pattinson spent some time this past summer in a maximum security prison, serving time for a minor vandalism charge. While there, he made a bold promise to fellow inmates that he would bring them a superhero suit for Christmas – a promise he kept as you’ll soon find out.
The actor recently spoke about the experience and revealed some interesting details, explaining that it was “a dream come true” to dress up as a superhero while in prison. He also talked about how he “couldn’t believe” how the inmates reacted to the news, and how being mistaken for a superhero made him feel “like a kid in a candy store.”
As you may imagine, this episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was not particularly enjoyable for fans of the Twilight series. In fact, it was so uncomfortable that Kim Kardashian almost walked off the set. However, she decided to stay, and we can only assume she made the right decision. Just so you know, the episode was supposed to be aired two weeks ago, but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now that the world is finally shifting back to something closer to normal, it’s probably high time for the Kardashians to get back to business as usual. And that means one thing: more shenanigans, more drama, and of course, more money. Sooner or later, they will have to address the fact that Robert Pattinson is now a super-famous person. But until then, let’s enjoy this brief moment of insanity.
As it turns out, getting a superhero suit for Christmas is one thing, but actually wearing it is another. When the day of the holiday arrived, Robert Pattinson was in for a big surprise. As he was walking towards the front door, he suddenly felt a tap on his shoulder. Looking around, he saw a cell phone filming him from a distance. Startled, he turned around and saw a group of inmates staring at him and laughing. One of them even went so far as to say, “Merry Christmas, Mr. Pattinson!”
The actor tried to maintain his cool, but you can probably imagine how incredibly uncomfortable this was. It took him a while to realize that he was actually being filmed and that these men were not joking around. Still, he had to remind himself that this was indeed a dream come true. And as much as he wanted to enjoy this moment, he knew that it was most likely not going to last very long.
The situation grew tenser when one of the inmates walked towards him, pulled open the jacket of his black suit, and asked him to remove his shirt. Robert Pattinson did not want to disobey the inmate, but he also did not want to upset the cameraman either. In the end, he took off his shirt and tried to stay professional, but it was probably one of the most embarrassing incidents of his life. He would like to forget about it, but unfortunately, he cannot.
As you may imagine, once the press found out about this, they had a field day. “Robert Pattinson Goes To Prison And Comes Out Dressed As A Gangster” and “Robert Pattinson Finally Wears The Suit He Promised To Bring His Inmates” were some of the headlines that appeared in the mainstream media. For the most part, it was a humiliating experience for the actor.
He was not the only one though. Some of the inmates also saw this as a great moment and made sure to film themselves behind the scenes. One of them even walked up to the actor and said, “Mr. Pattinson, you and I are both actors and we should do this again. This is what acting is all about.” While most people were not sympathetic to Robert Pattinson’s situation, the inmates seemed to feel that he had given them a Christmas present that they will cherish forever.
As horrible as this experience was for Robert Pattinson, it did have some interesting educational lessons. First, he learned that fame can be a fickle thing. Just because you are now a recognizable face does not mean that you will forever be known as that person. No, in time, fame can fade, and if you are not prepared for that moment, you could find yourself in a very awkward situation. Second, he discovered that people can be very unpredictable. Even those who feel that they are your friends can turn on you in the blink of an eye. The lesson here is that you never truly know what kind of person someone is going to be until you have opened up your heart to them. Finally, the incident made him realize that there are certain behaviors that you just cannot engage in. Inmates are not meant to wear comfortable clothing, so why should he? Why should he insult the costume designer by wearing something that is not only inappropriate, but also makes him feel less secure?
Now that he has opened up about his experience in prison, it is only fair to say that he has also grown as a person. While he still goes through extreme discomfort when reminded of the incident, he also sees it as a great learning experience that made him a better person. And as much as he would like to put this behind him, he knows that it is not yet over. In time, everything will return to normal and he will go back to being a regular guy. But until then, he will have to find a way to live his best life while also respecting the fact that he is a famous person. But what can you do? You can’t change who you are, but you can always choose how you act. So in the meantime, he is going to have to learn to be more professional, and above all, to be less susceptible to bribery. Otherwise, he is sure to find himself in more embarrassing situations. So, in the end, all you can do is laugh, and maybe, learn a little bit from these bizarre events.
