Robert Pattinson Says That He Regularly Lies During Interviews
Robert Pattinson is a liar. His words, not mine. During his GQ profile, RPattz says that he regularly lies during interviews in order to come up with material. Which I think is totally fair. I mean, not everyone is interesting, some people are boring! Boring people should be allowed to spice things up sometimes too. Live that fantasy!
Lady Gaga has said that flies flying around her while working on House of Gucci was a vengeful spell cast on her by the woman she was playing, so I don’t think Robert is the only one in Hollywood who gets creative with reality. But he tells GQ that he makes up stories during interviews when he really has nothing to say, like how he never washes his hair. Um… is RPattz pulling another shameless lie by saying that he was lying when he said that he never washes his hair? Take a look at his mop and you be the judge. via GQ:
Pattinson tells me that sometimes he’ll just make something up in an interview, in order to say anything at all—and that it has at times come back to bite him (for instance, comments he made years ago about not washing his hair that have followed him to this day). It all gets a little slippery when someone tells you they sometimes deliberately lie. But it feels like it adds up with several of the other stories Pattinson shares with me. There are some things that are honest, there are some things that are constructed, and in between there are just a bunch of roles Pattinson’s playing besides a movie star and celebrity.
But the Red Flag for me is that Robert admits he’s done this his whole life, not just when he became a famous actor and had to come up with interesting shit to say in back-to-back interviews. via HuffPo:
But telling falsehoods about himself is something Pattinson says he’s been doing pretty much his entire life. The actor told GQ that as a teenager, he claimed he imported and dealt drugs to impress older kids, even though he “didn’t even know what drugs looked like.” His grift was pretty elaborate. It involved opening up floppy discs, pouring “this kind of powder stuff inside,” spraying them with cleaning products so they’d smell “chemical-y” and then sealing them back up. The idea was that it appeared that the discs had drugs hidden inside.
“I bought, like, 40 floppy disks, and then I’d show it to kids who were probably 15 or 16, and I’d be like, “Yeah, I’m importing drugs in floppy discs,”” Pattinson said. “And everybody believed me. And I kind of got this reputation that, “This kid is crazy. He’s a drug dealer!” Like, “Want to try some? Some sawdust with Febreze on it?””
Robert also wanted people to think of him as a Sk8er Boi even though he was “terrified of hurting myself” and had “never” been on a skateboard before. “So, I’d just sit there, dragging the skateboard around. Rolling it back and forth, hit it with things, and kind of put little gashes into it so that it looked like I’d been riding it.” When Robert then got into acting and started acting out lies for money instead of clout, he would pretend to be an American from Michigan during auditions. Rob also lied to M*tt L*u*r in 2011 while promoting Water for Elephants by claiming he saw a circus clown die in an explosion and it scarred him, only to reveal a few weeks later he was lying.
So, Robert Pattinson admits to lying to people for most of his life, and he gets the career of a multi-millionaire movie star who gets showered with praise and love by his many fans. Somewhere The Tinder Swindler is looking at RPattz like, “Teach me your ways.”
