Robert Pattinson : Cover Boy

He is on every cover isn't he ?
Wish the stories that go with the covers were worthy of our money.

As I just commented on another thread, this is what he dreaded most...HYPE! And with hype comes the haters and the backlash. And unfortunately, he's just gonna have to ride this mess out. And the only way he's going to overcome it is through his work. He's got to show the world that he's an actor and not just another teen hearthrob enjoying his 15 minutes of fame.

And he will. Talent will always win out and he's got so much of it, that it's seeping out of his pores.

You're going to be one of the great stars of your generation Rob.
It's right there within your reach...if you want it.

Just hang in there. All of this hype, hysteria and bullshit will pass. It will. And you'll still be standing.

And I'll still be sitting in the middle of the floor, piddling my pants, with drool running down my chin.

Thanks alot Rob. Gee, what did I ever do to you? (she grins)

Poor Rob... While it's proof that his face must sell magazines (and not only to the teens considering the type of magazine, the adults too), it's not the kind of image that he wanted I'm sure.

I don't know when things will calm down, I was hoping these 2 month would help. Let's wait because it's only been 1 week post NM.

I'm afraid the hype won't calm down until the twilight saga is over, and as much as I like twilight, sometimes I wish he hadn't signed for all the 4 movies, so he would have some time to relax and all the attention could slow down a little bit.

@bABS
u know I agree with u as usual and this time too..
I'm afraid that until Breaking dawn not al lot will change for him..for a lot of crazy teens he's gonna be Edward for a long time..that's sad cause he's an amazing actor, I just saw Little Ashes and he's so good...I cant believe a young actor can be so talentful..I hope Rob is gonna show his skills with other movies and be successful...

Hi Ladies
First time poster/long time lurker!
Could not hold back any longer - I feel the need to have my say!
Last week was so brilliant with lots of new pics every day. This weekend I feel bad vibes....why? What is it with the Media as soon as someone is popular there is this overwhelming desire to slap them down. We've heard about the so called lack of chemistry between Rob and his latest co-star and this only a week into filming. Then there's this stupid blog saying that Hollywood actresses are reluctant to work with him because of his association with Twilight. He just can't seem to win can he? It would seem that Twilight is a bit of a 'double edged sword' for him. So it was nice to see the comment by Nikola which actually cheered me up and made me feel a little bit less pessimistic. I also agree with Anna and Babs comments. Hopefully he can ride this out, get his head down and just get on with making films. Not all of them will be critically acclaimed but if they make money that means the fans like them.
Rob is far too lovely and multi-talented to just fade away and become a forgotten star. Sorry for the horrendous length of this post. Just wanted my say.
Wonderful wonderful site Godze. Thanks you!

WOW.. that photo is .. incredible.

I think he will be just fine. He seems to handle it well, he is very grounded and level headed. He won't let it get to him. He knows he is lucky to be where he is, and will make the right decisions. You GO ROB!!!!!

Doreen said...

I don't buy those magazines anymore and the ones I've already purchased will be trashed after I clip the pictures of Rob. What trash!
I posted on that other article about Rob's future co-stars not wanting to work with him because of his fanbase. What rubbish. Rob will perservere! He's extremely talented and versatile and there are tons of fans out there for him that are over the age of consent. He'll do fine.

tiffanyt said...

my sister got me the life and style one and i just started laughing. she goes "what is so funny i thought you didnt want them together" and i said "well its trash..cause life and style wouldnt know the truth from there ass!!!" and i tossed it to the side. i love how people really want them to be together just because they PLAY as edward and bella.

Shani said...

Haystackhair- I totally agree with you. Rob is smart and grounded enough to deal with the hype.

Really,they are helping him. Sadly this the Hollywood game. The more your face is out there it will increase your chances at getting the best scripts and auditioning for the best roles. The studios want someone who everyone is interested in. So it's a win win for both parties in the end.

JacQue said...

I also never buy those Magazines, I peaked mostly from Magazines scan that shown in this blog, you know just to educate myself how those paps are, and I never believed those bulls anyway. I agreed with you guys, Rob is a better person and he said himself that he doesn't read those so, he's tough, he will be ok.

Welcome lizzibee...
You're gonna love it here. Everyone is so funny and the love here for Rob Pattinson is tangible. And Goz and Dani do an incredible job. They do have lives beyond this blog and yet they somehow find the time. They're pretty special. I lurked around for many, many months at many, many sites before I decided to participate on this one. I did not make an incorrect choice (although because of my penchant for "talk" and for spouting off "opinion", I cannot imagine that some around here would agree that I made a correct choice. But so far, everyone's been too polite to tell me to shut up...thanks guys). And I must admit I felt embarrassed and extremely self conscious when you apologized for the length of your post. You're looking at the "Queen of Long Posts" and I'm trying to figure out how to express an idea in 10 sentences or less, but I just can't seem to do it. I figure that my 'gift for gab' will eventually see me through the door around here. And I'll take myself out.

And, if I may respectfully disagree with you Shani...
All these magazine covers and all of this internet insanity does not really help Rob with his career. Yes, all of this keeps him famous, but it's not going to get a director, a producer, or a studio to give him a role. ONLY his talent will get him that. If hype and media attention alone were enough to ensure acting jobs in Hollywood, then Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan and Brittney Spears would be getting first crack at all of the best scripts. And we all know, that ain't happening any time soon (too bad in Lohan's case as she actually is a pretty good little actress).

I promise you, Rob HATES what has happened in terms of the hype and the backlash and he was terrified that this is what was going to happen to him if he got too big too fast. Which is EXACTLY what happened. Now he's just got to duck his head down, try to ignore it and just do his work. And it's that work that will eventually shut the negativity down.

As for when that will happen...
Once the Twilight Saga wraps (I'm guessing late 2011), you give it another six months to a year after that, and it will begin to die down. However...Edward Cullen is going to keep Robert Pattinson a star for quite some time, at least through his twenties. I don't know if this is a blessing or a curse, but he got his 'iconic' role his first time out of the gate. He will always be Edward Cullen in the way that Julia Roberts will always be Pretty Woman and Leonardo DiCaprio always be Jack Dawson. The success of those two roles kept those two actors superstars, even during lean years when they had a box office flop or two in a row.

Same thing with Rob. Twilight is going to buy him time. Time to go off and make those kinds of films that he wants; avante guard, cutting edge, dark, whatever and even if they aren't box offices smashes, his fame as Edward Cullen will keep him a viable film star...for awhile. Once he hits his thirties though he's going to have decide what kind of career he really wants; a small, independent film career OR an A-list top 10 movie star of his generation kind of career. Hopefully, he'll do a little of both and have the best of both worlds.

Crap. And I haven't even considered his music career. Sky's the limit baby...if you want it.

Shani said...

Nik your right in that aspect. Yeah you need talent to get the job. But name recognition will get you in the door. And many don't even get that chance to grace the doorway entrance.

Yesterday I saw Rob in the cover of four magazines here in Brasil. Two of them with Kristen. For what I saw, only the same old blah, blah, blah...

Sophia Z.86 said...

Hey, Shani! Any news of Danni?

Chicago girl now in LA said...

Poor Rob...I checked these out today at my local Walmart (notice I didn't say bought).

What a bunch of nonsense! US Magazine, too. :( Journalistic Losers!

Nikola~When did you see Rob? I got his autograph at a premiere...three-second wow...DH was with me.

Clarissa said...

you know what i've noticed? life and style, ok mag, us magazine, etc all have the exact same story- like word for word.

and there's always a source, or they misconstrued a comment said by one person or another. it's really annoying.

maybe i'm a robsten hater. actually, let's just change maybe to i am.

he's such a talented actor and i hope he's our generation's johnny depp. he's got it in him.

maha said...
