It seems Robert Pattinson is not immune to reading all the gossip written about him as much as bloggers cant resist writing about him either and perhaps for good reason!
With a virtual industry spawn on the comings and goings of the actor the press and the public have been eating up the misadventures of the Kristen Stewart affair as if it were its own made for reality TV movie which says more about the current tastes and trends in media than the heroes and antagonists portrayed.
Says the actor: “Yeah, I read it. It’s my life. You sort of want to read it. You feel like you need to read it. It’s one of those things where you keep picking a scab. You know you shouldn’t be doing it, but it’s a weird kind of addiction. You desperately want to stop.”
Like an addiction that at least the actor is cognizant of and which keeps feeding onto itself.
Adding: “At times, I find the whole thing pretty funny. It is pretty funny. My life is kind of ridiculous to me. It’s so absurd at times.”
Of course that might be an understatement but then again perhaps that is the allure of the present drama. The idealization wrought via Hollywood and how these two young actors for a while lived a kind of fairy tale existence that probably said more about the public’s own desire and fascination of modern life in America.
Then again perhaps it’s a good thing Rob is able to see the lighter side of things cause as one famous playwright, Samuel Beckett once said: ‘tragedy is the moment you don’t know whether to laugh or cry.’
