Robert Pattinson Covers 'Vanity Fair' April 2011 - With Alligator!

Robert Pattinson tosses an alligator over his shoulders for the April 2011 cover of Vanity Fair, on stands March 8.

“It’s just very traumatic,” the 24-year-old British actor says of his his off-screen relationship with co-star Kristen Stewart. “When [the Twilight mania] is over, the media will lose interest [in our relationship]. There’ll be nothing to say. It won’t fit into a headline anymore. It won’t fit into a template.”

Kristen is very focused on being an actress,” Rob adds. “I mean, that’s what she is—she’s an actress. Whereas I—I just don’t really know… She’s cool. Even before I knew her I thought she was a really good actress. Like, I saw Into the Wild, and I thought she was really good in that. I still think there are very few girls in her class that are as good as she is.”

    what the hell kind of styling is this?

  • Celia

    WOW! This is the FUNNIEST/MOST RIDICULOUS thing I’ve ever seen.
    But seriously, when you’re working with something that unattractive, it’s hard to come up with a good concept.

    I just feel bad for that alligator.

  • rosana

    worst of his covers so far
    sorry for the aligator,too

  • Chelsea

    He looks ridiculous. From the clothes, to the setting, the inexplicable crocodile, to that constipated look on his face. Good grief.

  • NNL_B

    That cover is amazing and really original! I’ll definitely buy it!!!

  • wffd

    he is so smexy!

  • Cris

    You two b***hes need to shut up. Dont like him no need for your stupid comments. Grow the f**k up

  • mia

    ok- my english is not the best – so is this a confimation tzhat he’s in a relationship with kristen?
    btw.. he looks somehow like galliano on the cover

  • Cris

    Everyone grow the f**k up

  • Suz

    I’m not a fan of this guy but I like the cover and I think he looks really good…
    No need to talk trash about him if you don’t like him… You look like silly school girls tbh…

  • Marianne

    Cris, apparently you’re the only one who needs to grow up. You sound the most childish.

  • crazy

    It never ceases to amaze me how pathetic some people are. Jealous and rotten to the core…its disgusting.
    Looking good Rob. The cover is different and interesting unlike a lot of generic covers these days. He also seems like a very sweet person…some of the people who comment here could do with a bit of that!

  • paula

    Love him.. I like the cover, it’s very interesting.

    and lol @ the haters. say whatever you want he every day is more famous, more rich, and hes living her dream, and what a bout you?

  • shelia

    I really don’t get the hate about this guy. Not a Twilight fan but he seems a nice guy. The cover looks good..

  • Shannon

    People hate because they are jealous. It’s as simple as that.

  • Letisha Malcolm

    He so cute i am not sure about the alligator

  • Halli

    This Brit looks so out of place on that cover pretending to be a country boy on the bayou in Depression era southern Louisiana or something. Weird cover.

  • Chelsea

    Jealous of what? The cover is bizarre. Not a huge fan of his but I fully admit THIS: was a great cover. This one is amazingly bad.

  • crazy

    @Chelsea: Jealous of his fame and fortune of course. Its the only explanation for juvenile personal attacks on a human being who isn’t hurting anybody or being in anyway rude.

  • Ana

    So original cover! he looks sooo good! he’s very handsome!! and he’s right about kristen! that’s the truth! and yes,that it’s like a confirmation( for those who still need one,because the way they act with each other in real life also it’s moooore than obvious that they’re together thaaa) only that they don;t want to tak about it,to sell they’re realtionship,they want to keep it private,they run away from paps and stuff,thay also sais it all!

    by the way ,i loke kristen and rob ! they makre such a good couple,they fit each other so well!

  • Ana

    and this cover is in relat to his new movie,water for elephants,thaaa!

  • Ana

    i love*

    and this cover is in relate to his new movie,water for elephants,thaa!

  • Halli


    I read Water for Elephants. I still don’t see how this cover make sense in relation to the story at all. That being said, the actual interview is interesting. It seems like Robert has become a paranoid, food binging manic depressive. Its actually sad that he can’t even get it together enough to write down his own name in legible words.

  • Cris

    Marianne shut the hell up you dont know me. I am a fan of him unlike you skank you are just cold hearted bitch

  • crazy

    @Halli: Can you blame him with all the crap people say about him? Live and let live I say…but unfortunately some people make it their mission to tear down people they dont even know. Now that is sad.

  • Chelsea

    I like how he says in the interview that he basically hates Twilight. Rob, I think I might’ve just become a fan.

  • Melody

    Hey guys, quit bashing Rob. If you don’t like the clothes or the theme, don’t blame him. It’s the stylist and photographer who chose what to shoot. He just has to stand there and pose.

    But honestly it’s not the best picture. Rob still look great, but alligator is just kind of strange.

  • jk

    no, she can’t act
    he is in llust so he can’t see straight

  • jamie

    If the guy didn’t want to be criticized, he would have been a dentist instead of an actor. It’s the nature of the beast. People can have any opinion they want….good or bad. It’s their prerogative, you silly little twits.

  • Endrid

    He is so overrated. Not attractive!

  • Arkansas

    I almost didn’t see the dang alligator! I was too busy looking at that gorgeous creature holding the alligator!

  • ka-blamo

    Wow, what a crapppy cover! They’ve got him channeling his inner dork.

  • crazy

    @jamie: No one wants to be criticized, regardless of their profession. Perhaps you are the twit for not realizing this simple fact.

  • Julluf

    lol at all these morons calling him ugly. Thanks for the laugh! About the cover, I like that it’s different, he had a “normal” cover last time so I don’t see why this time couldn’t be different.

  • Tina

    I hate people who abuse animals!

  • Lisa

    First his film using circus animals and now this, what is up with him – does he hate animals? Or is just such a selfish idiot that he thinks it is cool to abuse animals.

  • Helen

    He does care about animals – only about his arrogant self.

  • ridiculous

    What the hell…having an alligator on your shoulders is hardly abuse. What is wrong with you people who just try to claw on to anything negative. And newsflash don’t actually know him…so youre just being ignorant and judgemental with that comment.

  • ewww

    ugly, no talent, and hopefully soon gone from movies
    can’t wait for the twatlight garbage to be over
    so sick of seeing that homely face

  • rotten

    @ewww: You’re the ugly one. Ugly on the inside is so much worse. I pity you.

  • @40

    Since when is only one opinion allowed on this site?
    They have as much right to their opinion as you do.
    You just insulted them, so by your own rules that makes you ugly on the inside, too then right?

  • crazy

    @@40: No thats not right. I made a comment in defense..they made a scathing comment on attack. There is a huge difference between having an opinion and starting to make rude personal insults. Sometimes you’ve got to fight fire with fire..its the only thing some people understand unfortunately.

  • kiki

    @Lisa: ok, i think you take the award for dumbest post. thats a hard thing to do on this site, so nice job.

  • emma

    I love you Rob. I wish you all the happiness in the world.

  • @42

    In your opinion, they “attacked” Rob.
    You “attacked” them.
    No difference.
    And in your opinion, they made a “rude personal insult” directed at Rob.
    You made a “rude personal insult” directed at them.
    Again, no difference.
    Two wrongs don’t make a right.

  • @45

    No. Its not my opinion that they attacked him or made a rude personal insult, its a fact! Re-read 39 if you need clarification. I again, acted in defense.There is a big difference. I would never say something derogatory to anyone unless in defense. If people are going to dish it out they have to be able to take it!

  • @46

    Defense of whom?
    He doesn’t care.
    He doesn’t need your protection.
    They certainly weren’t “attacking” you, yet you took it personally, anyway.
    You acted in defense by calling someone ugly? How is that ANY different than them calling Rob ugly?
    Look at the web…..a LOT of people seem to think that he is ugly. They have as much right to their opinion as you do. What makes you think that you can judge them, simply because their opinions differ from yours?
    A better response from you would have been something along the lines of ‘in my opinion he is handsome’, not “you’re the ugly one”.
    They expressed a personal opinion, you attacked them as a person.
    If you can’t accept that not everyone finds Rob to be the bestest, most handsomest actor in the world, you need to stick to fan sites. In case you didn’t realize this before, JJ is NOT a fan site.

  • @47

    If they can call someone ugly, why can’t I? I think you have a case of double standards.

  • Faith

    I feel bad for this guy. He looks like a prissy tool pretending to be some type of tough guy. Look at those hands. He has GIRL’S hands. I don’t think he has ever done anything manly in his life. His agent should sue Vanity fair for making him look this bad. Worse cover ever. I got to show this to my husband for a good laugh. LOL.

  • sky

    Great cover. I’m sick of every mag cover looking the same. This is different and appealing. Great hands by the way.
