It's the moment "Twilight" fans have been waiting for: Robert Pattinson is finally opening up about his relationship with Kristen Stewart. Sort of.
"It's just very traumatic," Pattinson says of their rumored romance in Vanity Fair's April issue. "When ['Twilight' mania] is over, the media will lose interest [in the relationship]. There'll be nothing to say. It won’t fit into a headline anymore. It won't fit into a template."
While Pattinson doesn't confirm that they're dating, he does admit that he has long admired Stewart.
"She's cool," he says. "Even before I knew her I thought she was a really good actress. Like, I saw 'Into the Wild,' and I thought she was really good in that. I still think there are very few girls in her class that are as good as she is."
Another person the "Water for Elephants" star admires: Charlie Sheen and his "little escapades," Pattinson tells VF. "I like crazy people who don't give a f—."
Not surprisingly, Pattinson is hooked on Sheen's TV show.
"I never change the channel in my trailer. I just watch reruns of 'House of Payne' and 'Two and a Half Men,'" he says. " I love 'Cops' — I think it’s my favorite TV show… God, I sound like such a loser."
But that's not the 24-year-old star's only addiction.
"I'm, like, a compulsive eater," he says. "I'm going to be so fat when I’m older, it’s ridiculous."
