With the advent of the online press, gossip circulates faster now than ever before. Rumours often develop at such a ferocious rate until the kernel of the initial story no longer exists. That's what's been niggling one of our favourite talking points of late, Mr. Robert Pattinson, and understandably so. Recently, it surfaced that himself and Kristen Stewart were allegedly talking marriage. Not true though, you'll be glad to hear. But while he denies the rumours that they were getting married, he didn't have any qualms admitting to the fact that yes they are a couple. So much so that his own mother had to call to make sure the marriage talk was just a rumour.
The Cosmopolis and Twilight actor has slammed the press while speaking with BlackBook magazine saying: "There was a magazine 'There was a magazine, with these pictures, saying I was getting married. No one ever knows what is true or what isn't. Even my own mum called to ask me if it was true. It's not. At least, not yet. But it is true that Kristen has always done something to me that others haven't.'
Not YET? *passthetissues
In the same interview R-Patz admitted he'd like to strangle whoever came up with that nickname. OK, we won't use that anymore so. He also added that "[In interviews] you try to say things in the perfect way but you know unless you say something stupid, from which people will make you look like a d**k, you're not going to have sound bites.... And if you don't say anything stupid, someone's going to make something up anyways."
Such are the joys of a celebrity lifestyle. Everyone knows everything about you, we make assumptions about your life before you even know what's going on yourself and to top it all off, you have to pay full price for everything all of the time:
"I learned to drive by people crashing into me. The first time anyone said anything about my being famous was when I tried to buy a car a few years ago. It was an '89 BMW convertible for $1,000 I found on Craigslist. I went out to the hills to take it on a test drive and, of course, almost crashed. A few days later I went back to pick it up. I had said I was an actor and the guy had looked me up. When I went back, he said, 'Dude, do you know you're number two on IMDB? I thought, 'S**t, now I can't ask for the 200 bucks off.'
