    I have to see Water for Elephant to make an opinion… The Twilight movies have bad acting IMO. The books are great, but some times it’s kind of like they mock it in the movies… According to my sister the author of this book (Cosmopolis) is sarcastic and dry witted in his writing. I don’t know if RPattz can pull that kind of thing off. Clooney and Pitt most definitely.

    “ARE YOU EXCITED to see Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis?”
    I would never pay money to watch his fugly face and bad acting.

  • jhoana

  • annie

    @Rosie: I thought the same about bel amì after reading it… rob’s character is really cynic and unscrupulous… we’ll see if he was able to handle it…. i hope so… and good luck on this one rob! i really liked remember me and i was nicely surprised by his performance…. way better than in twilight…

  • laverdadduele

    Can you say overrated?

  • Lizzie

    Um, no thanks. He’s boring enough in Twilight.

  • Maria

    So sick of his phony hype that was created to sell the Twilight saga.
    The Kristen/Robert was created to hold teenagers interest and it worked.

  • gilmorocks

    Oh please – all of his NOT Twilight related movie/s BOMB!!!

  • Jokergurl

    No, I’m not he got the part because Colin Farrell dropped out of the role. :( I wanted to see Colin and Marion Cotillard act together.

  • istra

    honestly ROB is beautiful , however that’s all there is…., Twilight is worst
    movie I have seen in years ,,,, bad acting is so horrible and I dont see other
    reason for success of Twilight but Rob’s good looks that millions of teen girls and older women came to droll about …..

    I was curious enough to watch Little Ashes just not to make rush judgment and acting was equally dreadful and hard to believe,
    well he did try,,, but hope he stops making movies and does modeling or
    something else and changes his girlfriend , she is neurotic teen

    I am quite happy for the young man. He is an avid reader and has good taste in the choices he makes for his career. From every thing I’ve read, he is quite a humble, nice, well brought up young man from a very good family. He feels blessed with all his success, and is using this opportunity to try and build a successful career.

    I think one can make an point without being downright rude and tasteless. I think saying the jury is still out is quite fair, but tasteless comments about being ugly and fugly are shallow and cruel and have nothing to do with one’s acting. I hope he pulls it off and proves all you cruel people wrong, especially you ugly ones.

  • Anna

    @lol: I definitely agree with you and Layla. How can young girls( mostly teenagers), and some young women be interested in him. He is just not an attractive man. Both of my teenage daughters hate the Twilight series – so I am probably the happiest mother on the planet. I saw something else he was in, however, and I am still trying to figure out why people think he can even act. Twilight is up for a Razzie award for worst movie of 2010. I agree with Layla, the most attractive ones she listed are my choices too.
