In a recent interview, Robert Pattinson spoke disparagingly of the acting profession. Furthermore, he dissed actors in general including, presumably, himself. He also talked about his inability to manage his huge fortune and how he can't stop racking up enormous cell phone bills.
For someone who constantly whines--er--talks about his desire to make worthwhile movies, the Twilight heart-throb certainly doesn't have very positive things to say about his chosen profession. In an interview with FOCUS, the Cosmopolis man dished on the almost stultifyingly simple requirements for becoming a thespian.
"Acting has nothing to do with the brain," RPattz opined. "it exists for thousands of years already. And it is only since the 50s, since Lee Strasberg, that it became analytical. Actors need a voice and a face - and maybe balls."
Well, Pattinson definitely has a face and a voice, both of which are, according to his legions of obsessively loyal Twihards, quite extraordinary. As for his nether parts, perhaps they're best left to Kristen Stewart. (Sorry, Twihards.)
Moving right along, KStew's man continued in his oddly self-deprecating vein by making disparaging remarks about his ignorance in financial matters--including but not limited to investing his own $63 million fortune. So, if Rob doesn't invest his money, what does he do with it?
"I hide [it] under the bed," he confessed. "Probably that's pretty stupid, but...I just hope that it will be well with me."
Rob also revealed that he spends a lot of money on "completely silly things like dog food." Why is that "silly?" Animals need good nutritious food just like humans. What else does he expect Bear to eat? Spending money to take care of one's pets isn't wasteful or silly, it just being loving and responsible.
Alas, Rob seems to blow--er--spend most of his money on phone calls.
"...telephone bills," the Breaking Dawn star laments. "I never get a European cell phone when I'm here. And then suddenly I have to pay $20,000."
So, there you have it. Robert Pattinson considers acting a profession for handsome, golden-voiced idiots endowed with testicular fortitude. And, no matter how many times he journeys back and forth across the "pond," he can't remember to have his assistant buy him a European cell phone.
Kristen Stewart, do your duty. Please get this man a European phone--or 2 or 12. A financial planner wouldn't be such a bad idea either.
