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.”

    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.

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

    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!

    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 Says:

    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.

  19. 19
    crazy Says:

    @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 Says:

    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!

    Halli Says:


    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 Says:

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

  25. 25
    crazy Says:

    @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.

  26. 26
    Chelsea Says:

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

  27. 27
    Melody Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    ridiculous Says:

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

    @40 Says:

    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?

  42. 42
    crazy Says:

    @@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.

    @42 Says:

    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.

  46. 46
    @45 Says:

    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!

  47. 47
    @46 Says:

    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 Says:

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

    Faith Says:

    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 Says:

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

    @48 Says:

    You didn’t just call them ugly.
    You said:
    “You’re the ugly one. Ugly on the inside is so much worse. I pity you.”
    Now we all know what Rob looks like.
    Some find him attractive, some call him “foot face”.
    Expressing an unfavorable opinion does NOT make someone “ugly on the inside”, just opinionated.
    They expressed an opinion on his appearance, you ‘attacked’ them as a person.
    What you did was worse.
    No double standard there at all.
    People have a right to express their opinion. This is an open board. If that upsets you, that’s your problem, not theirs.

  52. 52
    @51 Says:

    “You’re the ugly one. Ugly on the inside is so much worse. I pity you.” That is my opinion and in your own words this is an open board where people have a right to express their opinion. If this upsets you then that is your problem. Why so defensive about what 39 said anyway. If they wanted to defend themselves surely they would. (unless its you)

    Maddie Says:

    He’s gorgeous as usual, but the cover is an epic fail. I mean seriously? The alligator/hat? Why couldn’t it just be him looking super hot in a white shirt? Less is more. It’s taking the focus off of him. As for the haters, why even bother coming on here if u hate the guy and think he’s ugly? I don’t see the point. I <3 him and Kristen and think they’re wonderful up and coming actors just trying to do their job, and make the best of every opportunity. No reason to hate on anyone.

    You call someone ugly, in “defense” of someone calling him ugly. Claiming that they are “ugly inside” for calling him ugly. I just pointed out that since you called THEM ugly, you must also be “ugly inside”.
    I was just pointing out your hypocrisy.
    Amd laughing at you as you try to twist your way out of it.

    @57 Says:

    Seriously I don’t know why you’re not getting this. The huge difference is that it is ugly inside to unnecessarily insult someone. However when someone does that they have to be able to take the consequences. Giving someone a taste of their own medicine isnt ugly its justice. This isn’t hypocrisy…its balance. People just don’t seem to have the capacity to understand this, especially around here.

    i think rob is a very sexy man and a great actor. and u people that are fighting about others being ugly on the inside are stupid for starting this fight. you both have differences of opinion and thats ok but its not ok to say that someone is ugly on the inside because of them saying hes ugly ( which hes not!) and i disagree with the person that said that hollywood is going down the hill cus taylor launter is a fantastic actor and sexy like crazy. u guys need to stop being haters and get over it. and i think that rob is also a great singer. and the cover looks kinda bad but rob looks hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @63 Says:

    You didn’t have to insult them back, therefore calling them ugly was also unnecessary.
    By your own reasoning, that makes you ugly on the inside, too.
    Sounds like a pretty simple concept if you ask me.

    @69 Says:

    This is last I am saying on this matter. I have said MANY times that what I did was in defense. I wouldn’t have said anything if there wasn’t something to reply to. It may have been unnecessary but to illustrate the point it had to be done. If that makes me ugly in your opinion fine. The way I see it is calling someone ugly and wishing that you could never see their face again is hateful, disrespectful and rude. If I needed to reciprocate in a similar fashion, it just needed to be done so they could see how hateful, disrespectful and rude it is. Sometimes people don’t realize until it affects themselves. Maybe some people actually got the point. If not…at least I know what I was doing was coming from a good place.

    amtj2008 Says:

    These quotes are out of context, I got the mag. He was saying the relationship in Twilight(Bella and Edward) and how some fans believe ……whatever about him and Kristen is traumatic. It was not a confirmation of their relationship, like so many gossip sites are cutting the quotes to mean. It is true when they are no longer filming Twilight, people won’t be making up stories about him and her. He also talks about how it is f*cked-up how these so called fans think they know you because of the films and interviews.
