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”.

    Rob looks fantastic here. I adore his longer hair, we haven’t seen that in a while. Gorgeous jacket too!

  • No

    omg what kind of pose is that? His eyes look empty

  • Lol

    @Jenn: lol it’s cuz of Kristen Stewart’s butthurt fans

  • Yes

    @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.

  • Isabel

    The rover !!!!

  • YaesGawd!

    Rob can work American politics all he wants as long as it keeps him here so I can work his British nob all day and e’rvryday! Yaes Gawd- I would.

  • Lulu

    Looking good Rob. I would climb him like a tree!

  • Ew

    @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.

  • Living in a box

    American politic? You mean a country owned by Israel?

  • Isabel

    Hot

  • Raima

    Rob and Guy!! The Rover!!!!

  • cathy

    The Rover is phenomenal and both Rob and Guy are phenomenal

  • katy

    Love Rob’s cranberry Gucci jacket! smoking hot

  • The Rover

    is a amazing film. Wish people would see it. its a must watch

  • Helen

    Love the jacket, he looks hungover and has dark circles in most pics and his interviews were like he didn’t wanna be there , poor Guy did all the talking. Oh and the gum chewing during promo was priceless .

  • hmm

    Rob is awesome but he seemed to be jetlagged

  • L A I N E Y .

    one word to describe this guy……….ALCOHOLIC .

    kristin dodge a train when she dumped him.

  • zee

    Americans only have the intelligence to watch superman and batman, Indies are not their scene. The Rover is a wonderful film and Rob and Guy have done a fantastic job

  • @nutcase

    @L A I N E Y .:
    I can smell something burning even fro here. hahaa…..Buthurt exes cant leave Rob alone

  • Isabel

    The rover is excelent

  • anna

    Guy is a great actor but Rob is awesome, he steals the show from Guy

  • http://lynniemole lynv

    I don’t think rob looks happy,in a lot of pictures ,looks thin too. always playing with his hair ,sad.i know he is missing someone bad. I cant wait to see rover. rob you worry me you are always look like your in space,you can come down now.get new friends.

  • anna

    @lynv: LOL Rob is doing fine. I really liked the sexy black girls he was with a few days back. Rob is having fun just like all single guys do. So chill

  • anna

    You go Rob! make your beautiful films

  • Jess

    @anna: What’s the point of mentioning that they’re black? I’m sure Rob just sees them as women, as people. When he’s with a white girl, do you indicate that as well? He was hanging out with pretty girls, end of story.

  • Jess

    @Helen: Honestly, I think he was just tired. He’s been doing the promo circuit a lot this summer after not doing it for well over a year. It’s probably trying to get use to it all over again after relaxing and just filming movies since 2012. It’s like getting back into classes after bs-ing during summer break. In this case, I think he was hanging out all weekend with friends and then had to hop a long flight to the UK for another fast pace promo tour and he probably didn’t get enough sleep. Cut him some slack. He might be hungover but he also very well might not be. He might simply just be tired. It’s not a far fetched concept.

  • Ana Isabel

    let see if he is as good a politician as he is an actor

  • dn

    He is a good guy a decent human being in every aspect of the words I like him a lot!

  • marmite 400

    @No:
    I agree about the eyes.

  • marmite 400

    @Jess:
    I get that now. Jetlag, promos…. and socializing. Rob is always meeting up with friends. He does not care for putting on a forced smile.

  • just me

    always makes fun of himself :) the hair is back.

  • Jess

    @marmite 400: Exactly. He might have a few beers and hang with friends…at times he might even be slightly hungover, but it’s not like his lack of smile has to do with being trashed or coming off a bender…he’s tired.

  • @lainey

    No more alcoholic than kslut. Rob you were fantastic in the Rover, can’t wait to see you in your other movies. Semper Fi!

  • lynv

    Yes ,that black girl and guys have a band I think death grip ,friends.i hope him well,it is hard missing someone ,you loved for years,oh I believe their together,always did,thats me.

  • lynv

    Rob,, you should stay in acting,not politic,you couldn’t handle PUTIN,

  • gina

    @@lainey: LMAO!!! So true

  • But

    CAN ANYONE SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF THE SLOUCHING PATTINSON> MOST MEN SIT UP STRAIGHT

  • setha2z

    @L A I N E Y .: Even members of AA do not call one another “alcoholic” unless a person calls themselves that. We do not presume to judge others, as a goal. You, my friend, have insufficient information and (probably) knowledge to call anyone else an alkie. You and/or your doctor are certainly free to call yourself one, however.

  • katy

    Rob is flawless in that red suede jacket. The man has style

  • …..

    @lynv: Death Grips broke up. One of those girls dates the guy from Death Grips (MC Ride, the one with the beard) and the other girl was with the other guy with Rob. They’re all friends. But why must you point out their skin color when mentioning them? It’s obvious what they are.

  • lynv

    I did not mean to a offend anybody , it don’t matter if your black or white ,I don’t judge people.I love everyone,i am not racist.
