Robert Pattinson Admitted He Makes Stuff Up In Interviews, And I'm Weirdly Relieved
You know Robert Pattinson — formerly Edward Cullen in Twilight, currently Bruce Wayne in The Batman.
You might also know Rob from his somewhat chaotic interviews, like that infamous GQ interview from 2020 where he nearly burned down his kitchen trying to "make a pasta which you can hold in your hand."
Or the time he told the Metro that he got rid of his stalker by taking her out to dinner and basically boring her to tears.
Well, it turns out those stories — along with the many, many other strange headlines floating around — may not be true at all.

In his GQ cover profile, he said that he'll occasionally "just make something up" during interviews "in order to say anything at all."
But his words have come back to bite him. For example, he told Extra all the way back in 2009 that he doesn't wash his hair, and the false admission haunts him to this day.
Previously, he backtracked on his claim that he wasn't working out in preparation for The Batman and clarified that he'd been "in a lower gear of working out" at the time.
"I just always think it's really embarrassing to talk about how you're working out," he told MovieMaker.
However, Rob surprisingly doubled down on the aforementioned pasta interview as gospel truth. He said, "But I was fully, actually trying to make that pasta. ... Like I was literally in talks with frozen-food factories and hoped that that article would be the proof of concept."
"My manager was like: 'Is this really what you want to do? You want your face on handheld pasta? You know you’ve got to go to Walmart and really sell it, for potentially very little return.'”
