Robert Pattinson considers his outfit for the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005 to be one of his worst fashion choices.
The Twilight star shot to fame playing Cedric Diggory, his first major movie role, in the fourth instalment of the Harry Potter movie franchise, and attended the premiere in Leicester Square wearing black leather trousers, a white shirt, a red velvet blazer, and dark red shoes.
In an interview with British GQ, Pattinson revealed he cringes at a lot of his old red carpet looks, but his ensemble for the premiere really stands out.
“I was wearing leather trousers with these cowboy boots and a velvet jacket,” he recalled. “I mean, it literally looked like a kid had gone into a dressing-up box.”
Pattinson’s sense of style has improved over the years and he credits fashion experts for making him look red carpet ready.
“If I was choosing to wear clothes myself, I don’t think I would have gone in a lot (of) the directions that I have ended up going in with Dior and people like Kim Jones,” the 33-year-old added, referring to the creative director of Dior Homme. “I never would have thought I would be wearing chiffon, silk, and satin. I wore this tuxedo, which had basketball shorts last year – never would have imagined that!”
Even though he has become more experimental with his style, the British actor, who is the face of the luxury brand’s current fragrance campaign, is well aware there are certain pieces he can’t pull off.
“I wish I could dress like A$AP Rocky,” he gushed. “He just has serious style. We have been to quite a few different fittings together and I will see the craziest thing and really want to wear it, but I’d look like a total moron. Then we will go to the show and I will see Rocky in it and be like, ‘Jesus Christ, you can literally wear anything!'”

Robert Pattinson has been told on more than one occasion he smells “like a crayon”.
The British actor, who has been the face of luxury fragrance Dior Homme since 2013, candidly discussed his unique personal scent in an interview with Allure, and joked that it resembled that of embalming fluid used to preserve dead bodies.
“Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon,” he told the magazine. “Like I’m embalmed.”
In addition to his unusual confession, Pattinson also said he doesn’t wear fragrance all the time as he finds it too powerful, but makes an exception for the Dior Homme scent, which he described as “fresh”.
“I hardly ever wear fragrances. If I wear a fragrance, I find it quite overbearing. But this one, for some reason, you don’t really notice you’re wearing it,” the 33-year-old commented of the high-end cologne. “I can never really describe it. People are like, ‘Is it woody smelling?’ But I don’t really know what wood smells like. It definitely makes me feel more awake. There’s something fresh about it.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Twilight star Pattinson revealed that he was always shocked when he was picked for “good looking” roles in movies and was stunned when he was chosen to play school hunk Cedric Diggory in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
“I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people. My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get,” he explained.

Robert Pattinson wants to use his star power to help independent filmmakers get their movies into cinemas.
After his breakthrough role in Twilight, the British actor took an unexpected career path and went down the indie route, going for challenging experimental films that possibly wouldn’t have received the funding to get made without his involvement.
Speaking with the BBC, Pattinson admitted he gravitates towards characters and parts that are “a bit perverse and a bit crazy” and wants to use his name to keep independent movies in cinemas.
“I definitely am on the side of trying to get independent movies into theatres and getting somebody to see them,” he said. “I think if every single obscure filmmaker was just completely drowned out by conglomerates then that would be an awful thing.”
Pattinson, whose recent films include Good Time, High Life and The Lighthouse, explained that he picks challenging films that he would like to watch himself.
“When I first started getting into film, the movies that I’d be buying DVDs of would be slightly obscure things from Cannes or whatever,” the 33-year-old continued. “And I just think… I don’t want to feel like someone’s trying to entertain me. It’s like if you go to a party and there’s someone there who’s just trying to entertain everybody. You might have a chuckle at them, but you know they’re really just a throwaway, pointless person with no depth… But if someone’s very much themselves and has an intriguing, independent point of view, then they are an interesting person to converse with. I just look at movies the same way.”
The Harry Potter star, who has started production on The Batman, in which he’ll star as the Caped Crusader, added that he is aware his career could end at any moment and he would hate to finish on a film that he took simply to elevate his box office status.
“I always think that whatever movie you’re doing, there’s a potential that it’s the last movie you’re ever going to get, and so I don’t want to end my career on a ‘transitional’ movie,” he stated.

Robert Pattinson has been declared as the world’s “most beautiful” man by a top plastic surgeon.
Dr. Julian De Silva measured the eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw, and facial shape of many male celebrities, using the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, and concluded that the Twilight actor came closest to the Greeks’ idea of perfection.
“The 33-year-old actor was found to be 92.15 per cent accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi – which measures physical perfection,” Dr. De Silva wrote on Instagram. “The list was compiled using the latest computerised mapping techniques. Robert Pattinson was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.
“The Golden Ratio was a mathematical equation devised by the Greeks in an attempt to measure beauty… The premise behind this is that the closer the ratios of a face or body are to the number 1.618 (Phi), the more beautiful they become.”
Pattinson’s chin, eye position, and nose length/width came the closest to perfection, while his lips scored the lowest percentage.
Justice League star Henry Cavill came in second on Dr. De Silva’s most beautiful list with 91.64 per cent, followed by Bradley Cooper in third with 91.08 per cent, Brad Pitt in fourth with 90.51 per cent, and George Clooney in fifth with 89.91 per cent.
Clooney had previously topped the list but had dropped down to fifth as “the effect of ageing on the 58-year-old had resulted in a loss of volume in the face,” Dr. De Silva explained.
Retired sports star David Beckham came in seventh place, although he had a near-perfect ratio in the size of his nose and his lips.
Back in October, Dr. De Silva declared Bella Hadid the world’s most beautiful woman, followed by Beyonce and Amber Heard.

Robert Pattinson hates growing facial hair for movie roles because he’s “constantly covered” in food.
The 33-year-old has undergone several transformations for films including The Lighthouse, The Childhood of a Leader and The Lost City of Z, but he revealed that he’s not a fan of facial fuzz.
“I do not understand men who choose to do this to themselves,” Pattinson told Vanity Fair. “The idea of having a moustache as your go-to look for your whole life (means) you’ve got to be out of your mind. It’s like having a stone in your shoe every day.”
And the side effects of having a beard or bushy moustache proved to be too much for the Twilight star.
“You’re constantly sneezing, constantly covered in food. When we were in Nova Scotia, having a moustache definitely (helped you) fit in a little bit more with fishermen; I think you’d get more abuse if you didn’t have one,” he shared. “It definitely does encourage you to have a whole bunch of different facial expressions… I think I was just constantly trying to keep my hairs out of my nostrils.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the British star said he was relieved to be the face of Dior Homme, as it helped balance out all the “weirdos” he plays on the big screen.
“In the last five or six years, I’ve almost exclusively played weirdos,” Pattinson laughed. “It was almost a relief to be like, ‘At least I’ve got Dior coming out, so I don’t look like I’m just completely enveloped by the dark side yet.'”

Kristen Stewart has admitted making her new sci-fi horror film Underwater was “not easy”.
The 29-year-old actress plays scientist Norah Price, who is part of a crew of underwater researchers struggling to survive an attack from mysterious creatures after an earthquake devastates their subterranean lab.
However, Kristen confessed that she had never made a movie like Underwater before and found it genuinely terrifying filming scenes in dark water tanks.
“It was not an easy movie to make – really long and just drippy and cold and f**king hard. I want to see how we all reacted in such precarious circumstances. It really pulls out the best and worst parts of people,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
In a separate interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada, the Twilight star, who made the movie back in 2017, reflected on how much she enjoyed being able to do her own stunts.
“A lot of stuff that we did was super practical. It was fun, it was not hard to do the movie in terms of trying to fantasise and play pretend,” she noted. “It was hard to do the movie because it was scary and it was genuine! It made a lot of these things happen, we blew a lot of stuff up.”
Kristen also opened up about the plot of her upcoming horror movie, sharing that it has strong connections to what is happening to the real-life devastation of our natural world.
“They’ve taken things that don’t belong to them,” she said of the fictional crew. “That we’ve mined the bottom of the ocean, that we’re digging for oil in a place of such mystery that what comes out is an emergency sort of natural disaster, but really it’s a repercussion.”
Underwater is released in cinemas from 8 January.

Kristen Stewart signed up for the latest Charlie’s Angels because she “wanted to do something fun”.
Following the release of the final Twilight movie and Snow White and the Huntsman in 2012, Stewart turned her back on big-budget blockbusters in favour of independent dramas, but she made her comeback with Charlie’s Angels, a continuation of the 2000s films starring Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore.
When asked by Shia LaBeouf during Variety’s Actors on Actors interview series why she said yes to the role of Sabina Wilson, Stewart explained that she was in the mood for something light.
“I wanted to do something fun,” she said. “I was in the mood for a not-so-harrowing experience. Liz Banks, who directed the movie and wrote it, is really good at normal funny. I was in good hands. I knew that. The movie is so warm. I’m proud of the way that it makes me feel.”
While she enjoyed hanging out with castmates Ella Balinska and Naomi Scott, who make up the trio of crime-fighting detectives, and director Elizabeth Banks, the 29-year-old wasn’t thrilled by how long the shoot was in comparison to her low-budget projects.
When asked what type of set she enjoys more, Stewart replied, “Probably the harrowing kind, because it’s just more fun in a weird way.”
“Honestly, hanging on set with the girls and laughing all day and thinking of silly stupid stuff to say was really fun, but we did it for five months,” she stated. “I was like, ‘Oh my God. I’m still being a goofball.’ I like sprinting. The thing about big movies for me is I don’t know the difference other than it’s just so long. You spread things out over such a long period of time. I can’t harness things in the way I can when it’s short. Long movies scare me a little bit because I feel like I’m going to want to get the hell out of there, man.”
Charlie’s Angels is in cinemas now.

Robert Pattinson has insisted he won’t be playing Batman as a hero.
The Twilight actor was confirmed to star as Gotham City’s Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’s The Batman back in June, and his co-stars have been coming together in recent weeks, with Zoe Kravitz confirmed to portray Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright and Paul Dano set to play Commissioner Gordon and the Riddler, respectively.
During an interview with The New York Times, the reporter stated, “You were saying earlier that we should be sceptical of any actor who wants to play the hero, and yet here you are playing Batman,” and Pattinson replied that he doesn’t consider the iconic comic book character to be one.
“Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character. I don’t think I could ever play a real hero – there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one,” he said.
He explained that he was drawn to the film because he’s a fan of Reeves and considers Batman to be a “dope” character.
“His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character,” the 33-year-old shared.
Pattinson also noted that fans should take any comments he makes about Batman with a pinch of salt because he has “said so many ridiculous things over the years” and sometimes wonders afterwards where the “screaming nonsense” came from.
The actor’s casting received a mixed reaction online but he was expecting much worse, particularly after his experience with Twilight.
“Maybe I’m just used to abuse by now. At least I didn’t get death threats this time – that’s a plus! It’s funny that people are so very angry about Twilight. I never particularly understood it,” he added.

Nikki Reed launched her lifestyle brand after noticing a gap in the market for ethical and sustainable products.
The actress has partnered with Freedom of Animals founder, Morgan Bogle, on a venture named BaYou With Love, with the company offering up eco-friendly ranges of jewellery, skincare, and apparel.
While Nikki has been interested in protecting resources and abiding by a healthy lifestyle for some time, it wasn’t until she was pregnant with her two-year-old daughter Bodhi, who she shares with actor husband Ian Somerhalder, that she decided to learn more.
“Once I became aware of my impact on the planet, I wanted the pieces I wore to come with a story that was good for the environment. I launched BaYou With Love, jewellery, skincare, and apparel line, to create sustainable and ethical products that I couldn’t find in the marketplace,” she said in an interview for the September 2019 issue of U.S. Shape magazine. “I was pregnant at the time I was dreaming up the company, and like all soon-to-be mamas, I was searching for products that were extra clean for my body and my conscience. When I couldn’t find them, I decided to try and make them.”
Last year, Nikki announced she was partnering with executives at Dell to transform gold recycled from old technology into products for the collection, and she is thrilled with the response to the gorgeous new products.
“Understandably, people don’t want to compromise on quality or luxury when they spend their hard-earned money, yet they desperately want to support companies that are doing their best to create sustainable products through their business. Gold is the perfect medium because people know what they’re getting; it’s a familiar material in a territory that might be unfamiliar to them,” the 31-year-old added.

Kristen Stewart is now comfortable with the idea of creating whole projects rather than simply being an actor in one.
The Twilight actress has been appearing in movies since she was a teenager and she branched out and tried her hand at directing in 2017 with the short film Come Swim. She is now writing an adaptation of Lidia Yuknavitch’s 2011 memoir The Chronology of Water, which she will also direct next year.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair magazine, the 29-year-old explained she was becoming more inclined to make entire projects.
“It’s harder for me to be an actor as I’m getting older. I’m more comfortable in the idea of making something from top to bottom, rather than giving myself to (it),” she said. “There are certain actors who are out of their minds and so transient in their presence that they can actually convince themselves and others of anything… I have a harder time doing that as I get older.”
After reading Lidia’s memoir, Kristen sent her an email and went to Portland to write for a few weeks. She read the author and her husband her first draft of the screenplay and was relieved when they began crying.
Explaining why she wanted to make her feature directorial debut with the book adaptation, Kristen said it presented a fresh take on the coming-of-age story.
“The way (Lidia) talks about having a body, and the shame of having that. The way that she’s really dirty, embarrassing, weird, gross, a girl. It was a coming-of-age story I haven’t seen yet,” the star said. “I grew up watching f**king American Pie, these dudes jacking off in their socks like it was the most normal thing, and it was hilarious… I feel like I started reading her stuff, and she was articulating things that I’m like, ‘Dude, I didn’t have the words for that, but thank you.’”
