Who Is Robert Pattinson??

He’s like a drug for you, Bella.
I see that you can’t live without him now.
It’s too late.
But I would have been healthier for you.
Not a drug;
I would have been the air, the sun.

Jacob Black, Eclipse, Chapter 26, p.599

From my point of view...
Robert Pattinson
is a HUGE movie star.
Hundreds of women
and paparazzi
stalk his every move.

His face adorns the covers of
countless magazines...
He is all over the gossip sites.

But how big a star is he really?
In my world...
A world where I am constantly
searching the internet for any news...
scouring websites for new pictures and videos...

But I look at the people in my life...
My family, my friends...
And they don't give a shit about Rob.
Many of them have little idea
who he is.
"Oh yeah... The Twilight guy."
My sons are aware of him...
(and I admit a lot of that is because of me)
but they are of an age
when they know what is going on
with popular culture.

But if you think about it...
Robert is a step up
on the ladder of fame...
Because he played a newly
iconic literary character.
Edward Cullen.

Outside of that...
Do people really care?
Ordinary, non-ROBsessed people?
I wonder...

Rob is on the cover of a lot
of magazines, lately...
But has he ever graced PEOPLE?
(and not the little side pic)
If he's the hottest guy in the world...
Why hasn't he been on the cover of People?
Or any 'legit' entertainment magazines?
Outside of EW and GQ...
The magazines that have his face plastered
all over their issues...
are the shit rags...
like Life&Style, and OK, etc...
The gossipy rags that make up
almost everything they write.
I don't know.
I've never followed a celebrity
this closely before.
This is all new to me.
I imagine if I followed...
Johnny Depp...
I might see things differently.

I think Robert is a small to middling fish...
in a big, big pond.
I think he's the 'hot' new guy
and people are aware of him...
But I also think
I project my love and adoration for him
onto everything.

Thinking that everyone must
love Robert Pattinson...
Because *I* do.

I do think that if
Rob keeps being true to himself...
and doesn't turn "Hollywood"
and keeps focusing on his work...
He can be like Johnny Depp.
I see a lot of similarity already.

I like that.
A lot.

Bye for now

Great post Rose! I just watched a Johnny Depp interview on David Letterman last night here in OZ. I too could see a lot of similarities between Rob & Johnny. I really do hope that Robs career follows a similar path.
I am yet to meet someone outside the ROBsessed online world that is interested in his career. I hope once the Twilight saga is done the crap rags with give it a rest. With the roles Rob is set to play over the next year I am hopeful we will get to read some reputable articles with substance.
As always Rose, love your blog.xx
There is so much in your posts, I feel I can relate too. :)

Rob is my drug of choice. He's definitely got the goods. All he needs is the vehicle and practice to really become great.

I don't think you can compare Rob to any actor out there right now. Rob is a 'Universal Man' He's capable of doing so MANY things.. very well.

Who knows what he'll do. I look forward to seeing what choices he makes.
