According To THR "Robert Pattinson's $12 Million Dior Fragrance Deal Is Just a Rumor"

So you may remember the other day that ENews released the exciting info that Robert Pattinson was the new face of Dior Men's Fragrance well now according To THR  Rob's $12 Million Dior Fragrance Deal is "Just a Rumor"

Photobucket

Here's what  The Hollywood Reporter had to say:

As a result of the massively successful Twilight Saga films, Robert Pattinson has transformed into a bigger star than he could ever have imagined.

And this week, it was widely reportedly by outlets including E!, The New York Daily News and USA Today that the young actor had landed a whopping $12 million dollar men's fragrance deal with Christian Dior. Gleefully, the press noted that Pattinson's deal had even topped Brad Pitt's reported paltry $7 million for his Chanel No. 5 ads.

But there is no fragrance contract. Not yet, at least.

The Dior international press office in Paris explained to The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday morning that the so-called "reports" were just rumors and that no contract has been signed. They had no further comments.

Calls to Pattinson's camp went unanswered.

There is no question that a fragrance deal may be in Pattinson's future. After all, his Twilight costar (and rumored on-again girlfriend) Kristen Stewart is already plugging the house of Balenciaga’s Florabotanica scent.

Should a deal come through for Pattinson, he would join the ranks of other A-list actors -- Jude Law, Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman -- who have endorsed Dior fragrances in the past. Marion Cotillard is also the face of Dior handbags

But it's worth noting that Pattinson has a closer relationship with Gucci than Dior. In fact, he loves Gucci so much that he wore their designs head-to-toe (the Signoria suit, white shirt, skinny black tie, leather belt and dress shoes) throughout his film Cosmopolis, as well as during the film's press tour.

"After I found out [from his agent] that Rob actually wore Gucci in real life, I looked at photos of him in their suits and that was the style I wanted for his character,” Cosmopolis costume designer Denise Cronenberg told THR. “Gucci is not something I have used before, but I think it’s smart to use a line that he has already worn."

Cronenberg also revealed that Pattinson kept all his Gucci suits from the film. "I didn't think he would because he has like 4,000 suits," she admitted.

When and if Pattinson ever does land a lucrative fragrance contract, we hope he isn't presented with a script that rambles nonsensically about dreams and destiny (see: Pitt's frequently parodied Chanel No. 5 ad).

SO what do you think? Were ENews premature with the big announcement?
Or does Rob really belong with Gucci instead of Dior afterall?

Thanks clarabelg1 for the tip !

NO!!!!! NO!NO!!!NOOOOOOO!!!! i want it to be TRUUUUUE!!!! i want Rob to work with CD, cause it would bring LOTS of benefits to him....i have nothing against Gucci...i LOOOOVE Rob wearing Gucci, but they haven`t signed with him any contracts either, that`s why i was sooo happy to read about this Cristian Dior collaboration, cause it was a real deal.....i hoped that it was.....well, we`ll see!!!!

Gozde said...

WTF!!!!! Man, this sucks because if it doesn't end up happening, it'll look bad for him, and if he ends up signing with someone else like Gucci, it would look even worse. Come on Dior, get it together and complete the deal!

Gozde said...

Now this makes sense to me, that it was all a rumor. Rob looks AMAZING in that photo above but I have a sneaking suspicion that him signing for a campaign like this at this time is highly unlikely. It's funny how reports for an "inside source" that say something we like, we agree with and reports from an inside source that say something we do not like, we attribute to rumor and gossip.

Gozde said...

E! News is probably face palming right about now huh?????  

Gozde said...

Well APrat was right she said something to the effect that she'd wait for an official announcement before breaking out the champagne and she was right it seems! 
My hat's off to you APrat .

Gozde said...

Got us all excited too :(

Gozde said...

Well, whatever the outcome... at least we had a VERY nice positive thread about Rob with 656 comments, no drama, now that's what I like :)

Gozde said...

Sheesh! I'd love it to be true, but I need to remember that everything's rumor until it's actually confirmed. 

Gozde said...

not nice at all :(

Gozde said...

I agree nice to be in a happy place even if nothing comes from it :)

Gozde said...

bummer :-(

Gozde said...

We should have learnt this by now lol 

Gozde said...

All I can think about is that picture is how I imagine fifty would look.

Gozde said...

Absolutely OCV!  That is the best possible way to see this ;D
It was a great thread wasn't it?

Gozde said...

 Hey, we still don't know if something comes of it or not... and at least it was good for our happy place, agree :)))

Gozde said...

Well we could try and bump it up to 666 and see what happens?? lol

Gozde said...

Oh well....I'd be happy with any Rob promotional deal because it just means more Rob...but if Dior is not a done deal then maybe there's hope for Gucci still....He looks so amazing and hot in those suits!!

Gozde said...

 It really was... I needed that after the last month :)

Gozde said...

 Hey, I'm in... you think the deal will get real then...lol ;)

Gozde said...

Too true..

Gozde said...

Rob  may land  not only double but  a triple Endorsement  Mega deals!!!!lol!

Gozde said...

I think a whole lot of us needed that.  Maybe the dust will settle soon.  :)

Gozde said...

 Hopefully!

Gozde said...

If they took five minutes to check the positive reaction on the blogs, they'd be throwing a lot more than the rumoured $12 million at Rob now!  Just goes to show how wrong these outlets can be and how quickly it spreads.  At least it was good news this time.....

Gozde said...

Well stranger things have happened...LMAO
Hmm your avi looks like he's hiding some Halloween fangs.

Gozde said...

Nothing that man does would really surprise me...I don't think...

Gozde said...

I'm thinking right now how ironic it is that the picture of Rob depicted above is the one I have loved for so long and it is displayed near my books w/the title "Joy Delirious" -- I am deflated at the news which perked me up yesterday being just a rumor. Bummer.

Gozde said...

 And i'm in agreement with that, Gucci you know what you got to do! there is no time like the present..

Gozde said...

And I should have made my self a cup of Greek coffee enjoy it and then read Rob's future in it.

Gozde said...

NO Moulin Rouge inspired Rob on a piano surrounded by can can girls....to quote Edward, "That would be a tragedy" :( 

Gozde said...

Damn the Dior deal a rumor?  But I was gonna wear men's cologne/perfume.....anything to be connected to Rob.

Gozde said...

Why would anyone even think there is a deal on the table? E! is a gossip site. That's the problem with rumors. There could easily be absolutely no truth whatsoever that he is or ever has been considering a deal. Doesn't mean he hasn't gotten offers, just that he has not engaged in conversation about them, which is of course, what he has said in interviews as recently as the Cosmopolis promo tour. Kristen's deal was announced by Balenciaga and officially confirmed by her press team.

Gozde said...

Wow, everyone just jumped on this & reported it as fact without checking to see if it was true. That is seriously sad. All it would have taken was a call to Dior to verify, and it wasn't just places like Hollywood Lies that reported it, even so called "respectable" news sources put it out as a fact. It's so ridiculous that we can't trust ANYTHING that gets reported.

Gozde said...

wow. who invents rumours like this? just astonished. or maybe Dior wants to make an official announcement but later? I wish someone asks rob tomorrow

Gozde said...

sad panda! 

Gozde said...

Excuse my French but MERDE !! I was so looking forward to this... well - maybe it will still happen, who knows ?? Gucci would be good too...

Gozde said...

That is so YOU to point it out that way! <3  <3  <3

Gozde said...

oy vey!

Gozde said...

Hmmmmm, I would say, just wait and see......how is the saying? There´s no smoke without fire?

Gozde said...

Just a minute, I need to stop drooling over Rob.....When Rob signs on the dotted line for an ad campaign, will be a great day for everyone. 

Gozde said...

:)

Gozde said...

ha ha ha ha

Gozde said...

Not sure that's a good idea tonight of all nights ;p

Your hag already jinxed me earlier on.....nearly had me howling like a banshee.....laptop went cuckoo.....phone wouldn't connect...was just giving up and going to notebook so I could reply to something when up the laptop popped....problem.....battery fell off when the bloody thing fell off the sofa onto the floor.  Not a good night ;-(

Oh and if I eat one more carrot cookie I'll be sick!!!!  Shouldn't have made so many in one day LOL

Gozde said...

Hasn't he said that he doesn't want to do a promotional campaign for anyone?  I could be wrong, but I thought I heard him say in an interview once that he has had offers, but it just isn't for him.

Gozde said...

Everybody should go visit Gucci fb and 'like' Rob's picture....it's currently at 2077.  Think they may take the hint that he is just a tad popular ;D

Gozde said...

Hey Bwen I thought you were dressing up for Hallowween...change your mind ?

Gozde said...

Well if he isnt , you can bet your life they're wishing to christ he was after seeing the reaction to just a rumour !
I

Gozde said...

Even though there is no deal, I had a blast reading everyone's comments on that thread and great fun just imagining Rob in the Dior ads looking all smoooooth and sexy schmexy.

Gozde said...

many of us remember that, but when we heard the 'news' we thought he had decided it would be a trade-off worth doing, to get funding for projects he would like to do, and to have his face 'out there' so people would not depend on pappz for photos of himself.  But if it isn't so, and/or if he would still rather not do this type of thing, that is understandable. What i don't understand is this whole business of lies and rumours-- there have been many actors who have been reported dead, and it is a hoax--something I find so not amusing, could give a mother a heart attack; this about the campaign is less noxious but certainly obnoxious.

Gozde said...

respectable" news sourcesi is this phrase becoming an oxymoron now?

Gozde said...

I looked and looked but I didn't have a thing to wear!

Gozde said...

Hey shouldn't you be getting ready to go out - charging up your broomstick ;)

Gozde said...

Isn't it ironic that the one time (or so it seems) we have a large number of posts for something GOOD it ends up being not true!

Gozde said...

god what happens to all those christmas gifts for hubbies and boyfriends now ")

Gozde said...

Or perhaps he HAS engaged in conversations but no deal is made, at least not yet?

Gozde said...

maybe it is a rumor, maybe not. but it was intersting to think about it and it changed my mind about the whole thing. i really hope he will make a deal with some interesting brand now. i tried the Dior fragrances yesterday and liked them very much, though i wasn't fan of their ads. Gucci is what i love on him but i love everything on him. i already forgot he wore Gucci in Cosmopolis because he wore it in his life as well. he really is a free walking advertement for them. i'm curious what we will hear about this the next days.

Gozde said...

 You made me spit my tea all over my Monitor. :-(  LOL

Gozde said...

hehehe, i just said the same. :-)

Gozde said...

not only them....i hope they are all after him now. 

Gozde said...

Well she asked!

Gozde said...

 LOL... I thought about that too :)

Gozde said...

that's diplomaticly put and very true. what ever he wants i wish for him.

Gozde said...

 I just did it. He has over 2.000 likes already... more than any other photo of LACMA.

Gozde said...

Maybe.. they were just testing the waters.  Because I read and heard it all over the entertainment news.  What... didn't they check their fact or are they just following every news outlet with the same same...is it copy and past with entertainment news?

Gozde said...

Yes she did and boy that was an excellent come back... your sense of humor is off the chart and off the wall. :-D

Gozde said...

there is no denial , that's the good news

Gozde said...

call me a liar but i thought we knew it wasn't confirmed or offical or fact. i found it interesting and tood it serious but i wasn't complete sold....it's like when we hear of new movie projects, at first most of the time we don't know for sure.

Gozde said...

 Hi Mizz, good to see you.... lol about you trying the Gucci scents already, quite good, ehhh???
...with this  just wanted to say Hi to Nov as well... she's lurking the whole evening on her holiday-laptop which she has to struggle for .... Go for it, Nov!!!
;)

Gozde said...

Funny you should say that....my laptop wont turn on today so I'm having to sit at the desktop on a bloody uncomfortable chair !!!

Gozde said...

I do have to say that when I heard about the deal with Dior I said right out loud, "that can't be right...Rob does Gucci!"  Not surprised if it is a hoax.  I'm more surprised if it is true.  But the thought of Rob in ANY fragrance add, takes my breath away!

Gozde said...

good you dress up the rest of the year! ;-)

Gozde said...

geez i almost didn't recognize you. are we going to vote for best costume? i think i need to change then.

Gozde said...

I'm going back to my favourite Rob's eyes tomorrow.

Gozde said...

Me too ;)

Gozde said...

;-)  I know.  I was there yesterday too.  I will keep an eye on the numbers lol

Gozde said...

Halloween !!!  Oh well ...tomorrow is another day :-)

Gozde said...

I think it is, it's amazing how nobody does due diligence anymore, if it's on Twitter, then it must be true!

Gozde said...

och well its the thought that counts lol

Gozde said...

I think most people took it as fact. I only read the Eonline report that was posted here, & they reported it as fact. The only rumor I knew about was the one where he was going to film something in London for Dior.

Gozde said...

 LOL... to your name and avi, Very Haloween-like ;)

Gozde said...

Oooo...scary Mizzz! Always LOVE how creative you are with your name!  Happy Halloween!

Gozde said...

been there ..done that...scared all the kids..ate all the goodies..bored now.

Gozde said...

 Id say go naked as nature intended, but.......Im scared !

Gozde said...

Now I wonder why? :p

Gozde said...

hi Olive! good she lurkes and relaxes. i saw her around on the other thread....hope she has a good time! 

Gozde said...

Is that like......I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure............? lol

Gozde said...

i thought the same. maybe they were really testing us. i feel used now. LOL 

Gozde said...

It really is..sadly

Gozde said...

wow so it is a rumor I kind of had a feeling that it was a rumor and that it is not true or whatever LOL

Gozde said...

yeah it prettymuch was hoax but I am not surprised I had fun fantasing about seeing him in a poster for CD *sigh*

Gozde said...

love your avi! that is beautiful that was the cover of the EW magazine along time ago :)

Gozde said...

Happy Halloween Nell. Jen and bwen inspired me to dress up too. I've never been on a Halloween party so at least i celebrat it here.

Gozde said...

lol that was the plan ;-) can you guess my costume?

Gozde said...

I have this pic in a magazine!

Gozde said...

it's a rumor after all,after I said it will be sold in gallons.I would purchase it even  though it is men's perfume , why would they rumor such a thing ?He could sell anything to me -except alcohol which I daresay will purchase since  not drink !oh !!what irony !

Gozde said...

Aww..well that just sucks. I'm not into the fashion thing so I didn't know about the gucci suits and what not so when I heard about Dior I was excited.

Gozde said...

i was looking for a different one but could only find this one. he is staying with Bella and looks very vampire like in it. Happy Halloween leah!

Gozde said...

it is a strange rumor anyway. it's very detailed as well: black and white Moulin Rouge style, 12 mio...

Gozde said...

Mmmmmhhhhh.... let me think for a minute.....
"I know what you are"
"Say it.Out loud...Say it"
"VAMPIRE" ;)

Gozde said...

Oh no!!! Not a good idea that would scare he hell out of even me !!!

Gozde said...

Absolutes when it comes to Rob scare me.

Gozde said...

If they don't know by now... they will never know. ;-)

Nice avi...after I heard that he will be in this Twilight movie... didn't read the books before then.  I got my EW magazine... I subscribe because of LoTRs and when I saw the cover my forehead was making wrinkles trying to make out who he looked like... I thought... light blub moment... isn't he the cutie young man from HP?  Friend loan me the book and got hooked then start searching everything Robert Pattinson and now I am so Robsessed...

Gozde said...

Ain't that the truth... Sheesh!!!!!

Gozde said...

lol very clever! 

Gozde said...

Well I certainly fell for it,got so excited for him we'll see whatever Dior or Gucci any would be good.

Gozde said...

 So unfair all these rumours hoaxes specially to families concerned,people on social media & tabloids spreading lies,how can they be held
accountable must be some way its just vile.

Gozde said...

I think they do Rob too.

He's a bit like Ali......floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee....... always on his toes, shoots from the hip those types of things LOL

Gozde said...

Of course... ich bin textsicher :)
Have to call it a night now... Good night!

Gozde said...

I know, it doesn't take much to make us fantasize about Rob..(loud sigh)!

Gozde said...

Just wanted it to be true, and didn't think I would feel this let down now that it isn't --  Halloween today, wish yesterday's news hadn't morphed from the ultimate "treat" to this very disappointing "trick". Sad that so many reports were wrong, where has fact-checking and integrity in reporting gone? This makes a lot of reporting agencies look incompetent, or, at the very least, lackadaisical in their approach to their news stories. In some cases it is a surprise, in other cases not surprising at all. Onward... Rob rules despite them all!! 

Gozde said...

YUK, men's perfumes never smell very good, any of them, so I don't care what, if any, fragrance he gets millions to tout. However, Gucci really should start paying Rob gazillions of $$$ 'cause he makes their suits look SO GOOD!

Gozde said...

A RUMOR!!!! UGH!!! 

Gozde said...

OMG you're quoting Ali !
But hey it fits doesn't it!

Gozde said...

Hello!!!!!!!!!! .... Trick or treat? 

Gozde said...

I am !
I thought so ;p
you don't pin Rob down easily

Gozde said...

Okay. So he hasn't signed on the dotted line. As I said, didn't think he would but wouldn't be shocked if he did. But once again, this is a sloppy, lazy media at work. No one picking up a phone to call and check a fact. No nothing. Just a rumour heard on the wind and they're off and running with it. Why? Hits/sales = advertising rates/sales = $$$. And the truth be damned.

Remember Watergate and The Washington Post? The scandal that toppled the Nixon administration nearly 40 years ago? Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein were the young reporters who broke that story and they couldn't print ONE WORD unless they had 2 to 3 confirmations from different sources. Their boss, the legendary editor in chief of The Post, Ben Bradlee wouldn't allow it. For one thing, the paper could have been sued and for another, those used to be the standards of journalistic integrity. Whatever happen to those?

Oh yeah. The corporations took over the news, turning it into entertainment and all that mattered was the bottom line...Money. And here we are 40 years later and few know the difference between The Enquirer and The New York Times and that's because the differences are disappearing. The press is the guardian of the fourth estate and they're leaving nothing of integrity for future generations to inherit.

Sorry for going on, but one of the thorns in my paw (and there are more than a few), is the demise of journalistic integrity, whether they're writing about a movie star or the President of the United States. They hold all the information and we only know what they tell us. Integrity doesn't come in increments. Either you have it or you don't.    

Gozde said...

I wish for him what he wants if it is good for him. :-D

Gozde said...

Doesn't mean there isn't some fire to the smoke. He's had offers, and maybe there's negotiating going on, or a bidding war...lol...or dithering. This happens so often with potential film projects one would be in a constant state of imminent collapse if taking all to heart. Simply best to wait for those directly involved to speak or make the announcement, or it has the "green light"...I think rumours arise because people just want it so, and I guess I can't blame them... ;-)

Gozde said...

Well, this sucks...and I hate that word, but it was the only one that I thought appropriate at the moment.

Gozde said...

What? Bummer. I really wanted Rob to be the face of Dior. What about Gucci? It is still a possibility?

Gozde said...

I was excited to see Rob in TV ads, Billboard and perhaps at Macy's but I guess is not happening anymore. Give it to the gossip sites for not doing their homework and giving false information to the fans. He wears Gucci like no other celebrity does IMHO but what about if Gucci is not interested to make an offer to him after all he is advertising the suits for them every time they described what type of suit he is wearing, color, etc. either purchased by him or given to him as a gift. A win win situation for both. Just a thought.

Gozde said...

Just got back and read your latest -- can I just say that in my earlier post I brought up this subject because, for the reasons you have articulated so well, the press has my hackles up more often than not, and you are, of course, correct, just as large corporations are taking over media reporting they are snapping up businesses and banks, etc., etc., ad infinitum, we will wake up to a different life some day and some will wonder why, but this has been predicted for some time now. It's the pace at which these takeovers occur, day by day, that isn't noticed, very slow, insidiously -- but, off my soapbox, I want to agree also w/the excellence of "The Newsroom" -- what a great show! I was the towncrier  to those I know about tuning in -- for a great hour of TV (NO commercials -- HBO, it can't be beat, on hiatus now, but will be back next spring, I think) -- thanks again for your insight, very refreshing for me to read.

Gozde said...

Lame sauce! :( Now would be the opportune moment for Gucci! lol I still have hope that good things will come to Rob! Some would call it karma. I call it blessings. And it's been a long time coming for him.:)

Gozde said...

When I started psychology as an undergraduate, one of the early things we learned was an experiment of one (or a few) of the researchers going out to a street corner and just looking up. There was nothing to look at, but passersby started gathering and looking up, some speculating as to what the person was looking at, some sure they saw something and/or knew for sure what the original person was looking at.
I am starting to wonder if some of the stuff going on is just a social experiment-- what will people believe and do if we print this headline, manipulate those photos, etc. It's not a game i would like to play, but I feel as if I am observing it.

Gozde said...

good comment x

Gozde said...

THR hasnt got a confirmation from Dior , while E news got exclusive info from an insider, so we will wait and see. Dior and Gucci are head to head in the brand business,their boutique are always at the front entrance in malls, so people will see it as they enter or from the outside. Dior or Gucci are excellent choices and with the money Rob can have the freedom to choose film roles of his choice and won't have to go for crappy roles in blockbusters film that pays  big money

Gozde said...

LOL that's a given ;-)

Gozde said...

Could there be the possibility that it is true but the news was leaked early. Really disappointing considering the hype that the ads would be shown next year. This whole business of creating rumours is really dirty business.

Gozde said...

Wasn't it Dior even trending on Twitter too...

Gozde said...

I am disappointed and happy at the same time, if that is possible.  I am disappointed that there is no deal but at the same time, I hope if there is a deal forthcoming that it will be with Gucci.  They have provided him with outfits knowing how good Rob will show off their suits and I would hope that Rob appreciates that and would want to pay in kind by sticking with Gucci.  I am only speculating, but I would think that Gucci would want Rob as their walking billboard, he is absolutely a dream come true in their suits.

Gozde said...

jeez, Mizz, it's you!!  LOL  I thought you were a newbee and found it a bit weird that the others seemed to be familiar with you  :))Until I read Olive's comment

Gozde said...

LOL that's what Halloween is for right? hiding behind a masque...

Gozde said...

Mission accomplished!!  LOL
