R Pattz Talks About Fans


Robert Pattinson has spoken about the loyal mob of fans who follow him and also talked about his fear of ‘oversaturation.’

The actor was appearing on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote his new film Remember Me.

Asked about screaming Twi-hards the Brit said: “You can just ignore it, It becomes part of your day.”

Talking about his increasing fame Pattinson also voiced his fears about being in the public eye too much.

He explained:: “The only worrying thing is that when you see your face everywhere all the time, you start to get fears of oversaturation, and that you won't be able to do anything else.

“If I decided not to be an actor and do something else, then everyone's like, no you're the guy from 'Twilight,' I can't really take you seriously.”

According to reports the actor left New York to fly to London soon after shooting the interview.


Do The Hosts of 'The View' Go Too Far With Their Male Guests?



There are few situations more awkward than having Barbara Walters and Joy Behar chat about your private parts on national television. But Robert Pattinson accepting his hazing by the women of "The View" with quiet grace and a tight smile on Tuesday.

Because that's what male guests of the morning talk show are expected to do when they enter the estrogen-heavy territory of hosts Walters, Behar, Sherri Shepherd, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg.

The women on the show, by virtue of their age and status into the media world are able to say and do pretty much what they please, including invading the personal space of male guests and talking to them about subjects that would be taboo if the genders were reversed.

"It's not one on one, it's five against one, and that makes the difference, so if the man is feeling uncomfortable, what is he going to do about it?" Cooper Lawrence, author of "Cult of Celebrity," told FOX411. "It definitely puts the male guest in a submissive role."

Pattinson, 23, allowed the ladies to spend an inordinate amount of time talking about how he covered what they referred to as his "unit" during his sex scenes in the upcoming movie "Remember Me," and endured Barbara Walters, 80, asking him about his unfortunate "vagina allergy" comments in Details magazine. This was before they asked him (via a "fan email") if he would ever date an older woman.

The average age of the talk show hosts is 55, in case they were hinting at anything.

"It promotes the sort of behavior you can't get away with in the real world. It perpetuates behavior that has no place on a talk show, especially when it is endorsed by somebody like Barbara Walters," says Salvatore G. Gangemi, an attorney specializing in sexual harassment suits. "[But] it's not illegal."

A representative for The View did not return emails or calls for comment.

Pattinson's visit wasn't the first time the hosts got flirty with a male guest. "You're considered a big sex symbol in Hollywood, the whole package, it's quite stunning I have to tell you," an over-excited Joy Behar, 67, told actor Benicio Del Toro when he graced the women's couch to talk about his upcoming film "Wolfman" last month.

When the cast of "The Jersey Shore" stopped by a couple of weeks ago Behar candidly asked the men from the MTV reality show, "When you have sex on the show do you use condoms?" When Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino answered that he did indeed engage in protected sex, Behar pushed the envelope even further asking him if he even made sure to use one "in the hot tub."

Men in the media need to be careful about the things they say to and about women. ESPN suspended "Pardon the Interruption" host Tony Kornheiser last month for two weeks following his critique of fellow on-air personality Hannah Storm's fashion sense. Behar can ask about prophylactics, but musician John Mayer has been nationally lambasted for talking about his time in the bedroom with Jessica Simpson and is now pursuing what should just be called his "I'm Sorry For Being a Jerk Tour: 2010."

A male talk show host like Jay Leno or David Letterman would never be able to get away with blatantly flirting with a 22-year old starlet the way Walters did last November as she giggled and asked Zac Ephron about his bare-chested photographs in People magazine. "If you went door to door showing everyone your chest how did you miss my house?" Walters asked with a coy smile. Behar stepped in and exclaimed, "Mrs. Robinson, calm down!"

Getting friendly (sometimes a little too friendly) is part of "The View's" shtick. It's what the audience, comprised mainly of middle-aged housewives eats up and one o fthe reasons they tune in on a daily basis, to live vicariously through these five women, wishing they could ogle Robert Pattinson and tell Benicio DelToro, 43, he is sexy.

"That would simply never ever work for a man," says etiquette expert and author of "Business Class: Etiquette Essentials for Success at Work" Jacqueline Whitmore. "Their viewers accept that but it doesn't make it acceptable and it does make men uncomfortable. Some guests are ok with it and some aren't but they would never say anything because their publicists would be angry and they want to be invited back. But it's what the audience likes so they will probably keep delivering."


The Ravishing of Rob Pattinson


In a recent survey of 130,000 women by iVillage Entertainment, 87% said they would trade their husband for British actor Robert Pattinson. Clearly, some of them were kidding. The rest will just have to accept that the 23-year-old Mr. Pattinson, like the romantic vampire Edward Cullen he embodies in the "Twilight" movie series, is unlikely ever to cross their paths outside the realm of dreams.

Until now, most of those dreams were sweet or at least private ones. Yet as Mr. Pattinson made the rounds in New York this week to promote his new, nonvampire movie, "Remember Me," the spectacle of his sexploitation—how else to put it?—was grotesque. What's being wrecked is the essence of his appeal, and he's really not old enough to safeguard it.

Whatever Pattinson-appreciation is built on, the gateway drug for most women (and fewer men) is Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight," a classic saga of young love. The twist is that Edward hasn't been human since he was bitten by a vampire in 1918, and yet he soulfully strives to protect Bella, the ordinary girl who returns his affection, from his own monstrous fate.

A beautiful man with the will and strength to maintain eternal devotion? A few joyless types missed the big picture and veered off on tangents about stalking and other tedious subjects. But most girls got it instantly, and adult women perked up as if from a torpor—even if they could only sneak off to and other Web sites after the children and a resentful husband or boyfriend were asleep. Then, they talk about Mr. Pattinson as if he were their own personal brand of heroin. "I'm addicted," a mother of four laments. "When will it end?" "O.M.G. When will we wake up?" types someone else. "When he's 40? 50?"

After more than a year of mainstream-culture derision aimed at so-called twitards, vindication of a kind arrived in the March issue of a trendy men's magazine, Details. There, a headline finally asks the $64,000 question: "So the Woman You Love Has the Hots for a Vampire. What Does That Say About You?" Nothing good. But the worm turns again elsewhere in the same issue, in a creepy photo spread where Mr. Pattinson appears fully clad but looking dwarfed and diminished by a towering phalanx of naked female models.

Of this demeaning experience, Mr. Pattinson later had the insouciance to remark that it was made bearable by a hangover. The fangs are out for him, however. As one woman blogged about the Details shoot, he is now "the most objectified young man of modern times." Throw in the sexual catcalling and increasingly smutty questions from interviewers, and he probably "spends half his life having femininity (for good or bad) thrust in his face."

Jimmy Fallon, bless him, put his guest up a tree for a funny skit Monday. Back in the studio, though, the banshees wailed so crazily that both men looked wary and Mr. Pattinson said: "Help."

Fat chance. On ABC's "The View" Tuesday, even the presence of Mr. Pattinson's parents and sisters in the audience could not prevent the lady interviewers of a certain age from instigating talk of intimate body parts, male and female.

All this, and worse, is now rushing toward a man whose greatest asset has been not just a handsome face, but an apparent abundance of youthful innocence. It has allowed young girls to imagine a happy future, and moved older women to tears with the memory of a happier past.

Now that Mr. Pattinson is a bona fide Hollywood commodity, a maw is opening to devour him. Even Edward Cullen couldn't stop that

"Remember Me" Stars Say Robert Pattinson Is A Cool Dude!


Robert Pattinson draws crowds. Throngs of teenage girls crowded New York's Paris Theater for the premiere of his newest movie, "Remember Me."

The film, a love story set in New York City in the summer of 2001, seemed to inspire jaded New York journalists. On the red carpet the air was brisk with anticipation as reporters, dressed as if they were going to a prom (think full-length silk gowns), whispered their own romantic R-patz fantasies.

When Pattinson finally arrived for interviews, there was a collective gasp. "He's so tall!" one watcher sighed.

Before he met the media, Pattinson lingered in front of photographers, giving his female co-stars ample opportunity to gush.

Emilie de Ravin, who plays Ally, Pattinson's love interest in the film, told, "He's just a really genuine, down to earth, sweet guy…You know we're friends and… he's honest about everything … that's sort of a great quality."

"Remember Me" cast dishes on what it was like to work with the mega-star.
