I'm not gonna say Twilight fans are weird...because I don't need to. They speak for themselves. Case in point: life-sized pillows shaped like Robert Pattinson being sold on Etsy. From the product description: "Manllow: half man, half pillow...sleep with him, cuddle with him, use him as a neck rest." That's every girl's dream, right? Using R-Patz to correct your posture?

Perhaps the creepiest part (other than his go-go-gadget neck) -- it's sold out. I'm not sure how many of these dreamy cash cows they made, but apparently they sold like very weird hotcakes. (via The Daily What


Remember Me Trailer With Robert Pattinson & CAST

Twilight's phenomenon Robert Pattinson and Lost's Emilie de Ravin drop the fangs and the fear in a new love story.

Ask Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin about shooting their new movie, Remember Me, and they instantly start talking about the throngs of Twilight fans and pushy paparazzi who swarmed around them as they filmed on the streets of New York.

"It was the most ridiculous experience," says Pattinson, flashing the sweet, shy smile those crowds hoped to see. "You're trying to stay in character and you're trying to walk down the street, but all those people keep reminding you that you're not this character, you're—"

"A show pony," cracks de Ravin, and the two burst into laughter.

Although this duo could hardly be more different—de Ravin, 28, boasts the easy physical confidence of a onetime ballerina, while the slouchy 23-year-old Pattinson is all self-effacing bemusement—their effortless rapport is the emotional anchor of Remember Me. Pattinson stars as Tyler Hawkins, an alienated and confused young man from a wealthy family—"It's not too Rebel Without a Cause," he jokes—who gets involved with Ally (de Ravin), the daughter of a cop who arrested him after a street fight. Where Twilight treats him as the object of desire, a role that requires as much posing as acting, this character-driven drama brings out his most emotionally complex performance so far. Whether Tyler's raging at his distant father, Charles (played by Pierce Brosnan), or charming Ally, he has a surprisingly deft comic touch; Pattinson is now the one doing the chasing.

"Rob and Emilie are gifted actors who really like each other," says Remember Me's director, Allen Coulter. "And the movie reveals them in a whole new way."

Which is precisely what both of them wanted—to show what they can do outside the juggernauts of Twilight and Lost.

Remember Me may well prove the big-screen breakthrough for de Ravin, an Australian still best known as the new mother, Claire, on Lost, a role that was often undemanding. "I was always holding the baby in every scene," she says, "while everybody else was going off shooting people." Here, she throws herself into the conflicted passions of Ally, a young woman who, eager to escape an adoring but overprotective father, struggles to break through her own veneer of toughness.

For his part, RPattz (as he's known to his teen worshippers) is eager to start playing complicated human beings and not just heartthrobby vampires. Not that he doesn't relish being Edward Cullen or feel loyal to his fans, but he still hasn't figured out how to cope with being an international icon in an era when it seems impossible to escape the public eye.

"Everybody knows where everybody is," he says. "The Twitter thing is unbelievable. I went out a couple of times with Pierce. He's totally recognizable, and he makes no effort to tone it down. Some people were glancing over at us in the restaurant, and he just went over and introduced himself. And it does work. It dissipates all the attention."

So, does Pattinson use this trick?

"Me?" he says, shaking those famously tousled locks, "I just crawl under the table."

All About Robert Pattinson

Pierce Brosnan Shows Robert Pattinson How to Be Mr. Sociable

Robert Pattinson is not exactly known for being overly gregarious with his fans in public. But who knows – that could change if he keeps hanging out with Pierce Brosnan.

The two actors worked together in the upcoming film Remember Me, and in their downtime together, the former James Bond, 56, mentored the young Twilight heartthrob in the art of handling the gawking masses.

"He's totally recognizable, and he makes no effort to tone it down," Pattinson tells Vogue for its March issue. "Some people were glancing over at us in the restaurant, and he just went over and introduced himself. And it does work. It dissipates all the attention."

What, that's not Pattinson's typical approach? "Me? I just crawl under the table," he says.

Pattinson, 23, still seems baffled by the absurd nature of fame in today's unblinking public eye. "Everybody knows where everybody is," he says. "The Twitter thing is unbelievable."

And now, of course, with his anonymity totally gone, Pattinson has to deal with hordes of fans even while filming.

"It was the most ridiculous experience," he says of shooting Remember Me. "You're trying to stay in character and you're trying to walk down the street, but all those people keep reminding you that you're not this character."

Robert Pattinson Talk ABout Being Naked In Futture Roles

Robert Pattinson Says He'll Be 'A Tiny Bit Naked' In Future Roles
'Twilight' saga star talks about the need for an actor to relinquish control in order to grow.
By Terri Schwartz

Crazed fans, "Twilight" moms and candy-stealing elephants: It's all in a day's work for . The actor talks about all of the above in the cover story of next month's Details, in an article by screenwriter Jenny Lumet.

Best known for penning "Rachel Getting Married," Lumet said she first met Pattinson in November of 2008 when she was doing some rewrite work for "Remember Me" and has kept in touch with him through filming of the movie.

The article reveals a variety of interesting and unusual details about Pattinson — his fascination with certain disfiguring diseases, an insatiable hunger built out of not trusting room service food, among others — but beyond that, the interview is one of the most revealing looks at Pattinson to date, largely because it is told through the eyes of a friend.

Pattinson explains about his struggle with fame, and the revelations he had about himself during the time from "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" to "New Moon."

"When I was 17 until, I don't know, 20, I had this massive, baseless confidence. This very clear idea of myself and how I would achieve success, which involved making decisions," Pattinson said. "Having control. Except you have to figure out whether the way you think at 19 or 20 has any value. And eventually I understood, with all that control, which was probably illusory, I wasn't progressing. So now I'm relinquishing a bit. I'll be a tiny bit naked.

"Except tonight I won't," he added with a laugh, "because it's f---ing freezing and my b---s will shrivel up."

With next month's "Remember Me," Lumet wrote that it could be the first chance for audiences to see a Robert Pattinson that had truly let go. His character, Tyler, is a young man closed off from the world until he meets a woman (Emilie de Ravin) and has to choose whether to continue his isolation or to embrace life.

"Tyler is so aware of his actions," Pattinson said. "But he has no idea whether they're of any value at all. Can you be a person if you live in the bubble? He's stuck in the middle. At the same time, he's lucky to have the choice. Conflict is innate in a lucky person."

And when asked what attracted him to the role, Pattinson was quick to make the comparisons between himself and Tyler. "I'm a lucky person. Thank God," he said. "And I'm conflicted. Thank God."

One aspect of Pattinson's life that was interestingly absent from the piece was Kristen Stewart. The article didn't contain a single mention of Pattinson's fellow "Twilight Saga" star, whose name seems to be mentioned every time his is.

As for the elephants, Pattinson had his run-in with them while he was in discussions with Sean Penn to star in "Water for Elephants." A female elephant lifted him up into her mouth.

"I was holding on to her head, and as I slowly let go she tightened her grip really carefully until I'm just upside down in her mouth and she's going through my pockets with her trunk, looking for peppermints," he recalled. "It was the best day of my life."

Remember Me’s Robert Pattinson – not just a teen heartthrob

Posted: February 15th, 2010 by: Michelle

It’s nice to see Robert Pattinson with a little colour in those cheeks of his as he plays Tyler Roth in romantic drama, Remember Me. No one understands him, he doesn’t get along with dear old Dad (Pierce Brosnan), needs a haircut and is a bit of a rebel. Can anyone say emo? He is saved by Ally (Emilie de Ravin), a ray of sunshine who creates a turnaround in his life. Tyler falls hard for Ally, but as with any romantic drama, there are obstacles that threaten their passionate bond.

I’m not usually one for romantic dramas, though I’d like to see Rob in something with a bit of substance. Kudos to not getting typecast Mr. Pattinson. Marky Mark transcended teen heartthrob status and dammit, so can you. This movie promises character depth and the opportunity for Rob to break away from those pesky Keanu Reeves comparisons.

I think this boy has the talent and the personality to go far in Hollywood and I’m looking forward to seeing him in more diverse roles. (Wouldn’t mind seeing him use his English accent in a movie either!).
