Robert Pattinson Hates ‘RPatz’ Nickname, Blames ‘Some Fat Blogger’

On-again, off-again lovers Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have at least one thing in common. They hate their truncated media nicknames.

InTouch reports that Pattinson cringes every time he hears himself referred to as “RPatz,” and he hates the nickname so much that he wants to “strange” the “fat celebrity blogger” who came up with it.

He also had some funny things to say about Twilight, the franchise that made him a household name. Though Pattinson stuck by the film series until its conclusion, he has always been very candid about his distaste for the story.

To wit, on the final day of filming Breaking Dawn: Part II, he neglected to say his goodbyes and share hugs with his co-stars. Instead, he pretty much just jumped in is car and left.

“The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers,” he says of the fans of Stephenie Meyer’s successful book series.

“Most of them are older. Twilight has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one. And in an intense way that has never existed before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight.”

While he seems to be attacking superfans in this quote, he has also gone after Meyer in the past.

“When I read it, I was convinced Stephenie was convinced that she was Bella, and it was like a book that wasn’t supposed to be published. It was like reading her sexual fantasy, especially when she said it was based on a dream and it was like, ‘Oh I’ve had this dream about this really sexy guy,’ and she just writes this book about it. Like some things about Edward are so specific, I was just convinced, like, ‘This woman is mad. She’s completely mad and she’s in love with her own fictional creation.’ And sometimes you would feel uncomfortable reading this thing. It’s kind of a sick pleasure in a lot of ways.”

Of course, that means Robert Pattinson might have something in common with Stephenie Meyer, as well. She recently said that she was “so over” the success of Twilight. Biting the hand that feeds, are we?
