Is it really possible to dislike someone as much as Robert Pattinson? All I can say is that I’m not just any ordinary girl. I have a special attachment to Mr. Pattinson…I wouldn’t want to fight anyone other than him! Especially since we’re talking about cages here…I think he’d enjoy locking me in one. He’s so crazy and playful…I’d like to see what he’d do if I was in a cage with him.
I think it’s only fair to say that his fans probably share the same feelings. When news broke that he was going to be appearing at a few movie premieres in England, on the other side of the pond, people began making their fantasies real. They’d love to see the “Benevolent Vampire” inflict some pain and torment on someone, preferably not someone he cares about.
We all know how much he’s suffered from the media over the years. From the very first time he was spotted at a nightclub in London by the paparazzi, to the disastrous ‘Twilight’ franchise, which was plagued by allegations of cheating and deceit. He’s had to deal with a lot of pressure and criticism, both from within and outside the industry. For decades, celebrities in general have been under a lot of scrutiny and public pressure, and it’s only right that Mr. Pattinson should be no different.
Who Do You Want to See Him Fights?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve admired and fantasized about being with a famous and/or wealthy guy. I believe I was probably 4 or 5 years old when I first began daydreaming about being on the other side of the screen, playing a part in a movie. This is what led me to become a journalist—I wanted to explore what it was like to be a part of something so glamorous. I wanted to see what it was like to be famous, or at least wealthy. These were the guys—the Hollywood A-listers—that originally captured my interest.
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a celebrity. It’s always been a dream of mine, to be able to say that I knew someone who was a famous celebrity…someone who actually remembered my name and asked about my work. To think that one day I’d be in a position to make someone’s life a little more exciting…to be able to give them a story that they could remember, and maybe even enjoy telling their friends. To be able to say that I knew someone who was famous and that person remembered my name.
I don’t know if I’d necessarily want to see him fight another celebrity. I think if he were to fight an ordinary man, I’d prefer to see him fight a villain, or a person who was threatening or harassing him. I think seeing someone you know or at least some kind of acquaintance get hurt or injured because of his anger or playfulness would be more realistic, and thus more enjoyable for an audience.
How Has He Fared In Past Carcasses?
There was a time when Mr. Pattinson was considered one of the good-looking men in the world. In fact, he was often referred to as the ‘Benevolent Vampire’ because of his dark good looks and charming personality. It wasn’t until he hit 30 that he began to show any serious signs of aging. What’s interesting is that, even as he’s gotten older, his appeal has only increased. Even now, at the ripe old age of 37, he’s still one of the most recognizable faces in the world. He’s graced the cover of numerous magazine, and even appeared on the cover of Time magazine, the most recent cover story focusing on his appearance in ‘Beloved’.
It would be easy to point to the Twilight films and say that they tarnished his image. His appearance in Twilight was, for the most part, grotesque; he played the part of a cannibalistic vampire, a role that could only be described as…well, let’s just say, undesirable. For a while, there was no avoiding the fact that he was considered a villain, due to intense media scrutiny surrounding the controversy. Even after the movie came out and he was seemingly redeemed, he still had to put up with an avalanche of negative press concerning his private life. As a result of all this, his public image took a serious hit.
It would be a mistake, however, to write Mr. Pattinson off as a villain just because of his acting roles. After all, he did help a lot of people, as much as he hurt. He donated millions of dollars to charities, most notably, the Red Nose Day. He also started the Good Kids charity to help out underprivileged children. This is the side of Mr. Pattinson that I find most intriguing. His work in the community is something to be admired. While he may not be a perfect person, he’s certainly not a bad man either.
Why Mr. Pattinson?
So, Mr. Pattinson, why do you continue to draw so much ire, disgust, and fascination from people? Is it because you’re rich and famous, two things that seem to go hand in hand? Is it perhaps because you’re an Englishman, and thus, automatically gain a certain amount of sympathy? Is it because you’ve suffered a great deal from the media, and are thus, a walking example of how much they can tear down, even a well-deserved tear down?
It could be any one of these reasons, or all of them. It’s quite possible that nobody truly knows, aside from you and I…and, perhaps, the Devil himself. I guess we’ll never truly know what makes someone tick. What we do know is that, no matter what the reasons are, you continue to fascinate and enrage people around the world. Thank goodness for that. And, lucky for us, you continue to amuse, anger, and, on occasion, hurt people as well…sometimes literally.
