Robert Pattinson Wanted to Work in American Politics

Robert Pattinson Wanted to Work in American Politics

Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce attend a screening of their new movie The Rover on Wednesday evening (August 6) at the BFI Southbank in London, England.

The 28-year-old actor recently chatted with The Vent and revealed what he would have liked to study in college had he attended one.

“I think I wanted to do Politics, or something. I still kind of want to, as do all actors. But American politics, I’m not really interested in English politics (laughs),” Rob said.

“Probably not now. I didn’t want to be a politician. I wanted to work in the mechanics of it. I like speech writing. I’m quite apolitical, weirdly. I like the game,” Rob added when asked if he would still pursue a career in politics.

30+ pictures inside of Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce at the screening…

    I’m sure he’s going to get a lot of negative comments here because he always does for some oddball reason, but I think he’s a pretty cool guy. I’m not sure what kind of involvement he could have with American politics considering he’s not an American citizen, at least that I know of, don’t take what I said as fact lol… but I don’t think he should give up on all of his interests just because he has a busy career. Even if its not politics he studies, he could still take online college courses if he’d like to be educated further. He could even take classes when he has more time on his hands. James Franco takes lots of courses. I mean, you can never be too old to get an education and you can never be “over-educated”.

    Yes Says:

    @No: He has his hands in his pockets in some photos and then he took them out in others. Do you realize that the types of cameras these people use on celebs shutter every second? That means, if he blinks…they have can have 10 pictures just of his eyes closing and re-opening. I’m sure he wasn’t posed like that… the camera probably just caught him mid movement a lot. He’s not a PYT actress who is going to walk with his hand on his hip and smiling over his shoulder in some rehearsed poses. Chill out.

    @Jenn: He’s talking behind the scenes stuff. If he weren’t famous and were working in politics and could find an US employer he probably won’t find it too hard to get a visa.
