Yes, it’s another Brit. Accents are hot. No, I’m so not a Twilight fan. But, I’ve kind of found Robert Pattinson attractive ever since he appeared as the doomed Cedric in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I did watch Twilight, though, and mostly just because of him (I also like K-Stew… why can’t they be in something better?). God, that movie blew. But, he’s still great looking, even when it looks like he hasn’t showered in a few days (and it often does).
Why He’s More Than Just Eye Candy: It seems that he’s committed to becoming a real thespian. He stars as famed painter Salvador Dali in the upcoming film Little Ashes, and his performance is complete with a crazy mustache and love scenes with another male actor. He’s also (supposedly) a pretty good musician (I think he sings and plays piano and guitar, but I could be wrong). Plus, he’s dealt with the Twilight mania (including those Edward-obsessed Twi-Tards) with surprising grace and humility. Seems like a cool guy.
Here’s the Little Ashes trailer:
