Members of the paparazzi are lucky Robert Pattinson isn’t a real life vampire because apparently he wants to beat the (censored words) out of them.
Pattinson recently told Elle Magazine:
“When the whole thing dries up and there’s hardly any paparazzi around – I don’t know, in 15 years or something – I like the idea of just one paparazzo coming out and trying to get a picture, and I just beat the s— out of him.” Pattinson goes on to add, “I mean, out of nowhere, when my picture’s not even worth [money], and I’ve spent all my money, so you can’t sue me!”
As for right now Pattinson is focused more on “outsmarting” the paparazzi, such as during his recent Venice Beach trip in which:
“A bunch of paparazzi were following me, and I thought the best way to deal with it was to stop my car in the middle of the street and say, ‘I’m not leaving, and I’m not going to speak to you anymore,’ ” he says. “They got all pissed off because they can’t just keep taking the same picture.”
For there part the paprazzi tried to get back at Pattinson:
“They kept trying to get all these drug dealers to come up to the car. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is insane.”
This could be a long love/hate relationship between Robert and his following closely behind photographers.
