Robert Pattinson Says Being Called American Was His Worst Ever Insult

He must not read what people say about him online..

‘Twilight’ actor Robert Pattinson was asked what the worst thing someone ever said about him was, and he had a slightly strange answer – being called American. He says he finds it highly offensive because he’s so British and just wants people to know this simple fact:

“It’s going to make you laugh, but as a Brit, to hear someone say I’m American is the worst insult! I am English! Let it be known once and for all!”

Adding to this, Rob says it’s harder for him to live in Los Angeles because he’s always instantly recognised, which isn’t the case when he goes home or heads out somewhere in Europe. He explained his frustration:

“I live between Los Angeles and London. But being in London is a pure delight. They leave me alone. It’s the same everywhere in Europe. The other day I was strolling around Paris, and nobody bothered me!”

Being a celebrity has changed since his rise to fame and he believes there is less possibility to protect his private life now. He also went through a period of paranoia:

“What is terrible is that I became famous when the world changed. In 2008, everybody had a cell phone, it was the explosion of social media. As a result, the freedom to protect [privacy] has become ultra-thin. Not only were all these paparazzi camping outside my house but [there was] this new horde of fans who relayed information on social media. It became unmanageable. At some point I became paranoid. I [didn’t go] out of my house in Los Angeles. It was hell. At the same time I was aware of the ridiculousness of the situation. It made no sense.”

He doesn’t think being in ‘Twilight’ has hurt his career and he values his fans:

“On the contrary, I think my name on a poster rallies my fan base. I hope to awake their curiosity and show them a different vision of cinema. Don’t forget that they grow up, too. And they don’t want to see all their lives Robert Pattinson playing a vampire. We tend to devalue the fans. It’s a mistake. The fan is an audience member like the others.”
