Robert Pattinson is featured on the cover of the latest issue of “NME” magazine and inside, he talks about all of the hoopla surrounding the Twilight era, embarrassing stuff and Googling himself.
On the Twilight era, he said, “I had people sitting outside my house every single day, and it drove me crazy. I didn’t go into a supermarket for about six years. But now I can go in and chat to the guy who’s working there about his kids, or where he’s going on holiday, and not be thinking, ‘Is he gonna sell me out?’ I just don’t have to think about that stuff anymore.”
When talking about embarrassing stuff, he said, “I find the most embarrassing photo that can ever be taken of you is when you’re in a bookshop and everyone can see what book you’re buying. They might as well just take a picture of me having a wank.”
With regard to searching himself out on the internet, he said, “To reinforce my negative opinion of myself…I go through periods where I don’t do it at all and feel glorious! Then I’ll fall back into this pit. It really does affect you, and it all comes from some moron sitting on a comment board. It’s always that person who’s needling away at you, who you either want to destroy, or convince them to love you.”
