Twilight is Robert Pattinson’s claim to fame, but the actor admittedly doesn’t understand the movie’s super-fans.
“What’s really weird about Twilight fans is that they’re not really teenagers,” he says in a new interview. “Most of them are older. Twilight has its own fan culture that existed from day one. And in an intense way, that didn’t exist before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having remotely to do with Twilight.”
In the interview, the 27-year-old also reveals that he hates the nickname “R.Patz.” “I’d like to strangle the guy who came up with it!” he admits.
Rob dated his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart throughout the filming of all five movies, but the couple broke up this Spring. Currently, the actor is filming Map to the Stars with Mia Wasikowska.
