Robert Pattinson, he of the sparkly vampire acting gigs and legions of fans, revealed some intriguing tidbits about his personal life during a reported pint-laden interview with Details magazine.
After a beer or two and plenty of chili-spiced bar snacks, Pattinson said that when it comes down to it, his biggest emotional attachment is to his dog.
"There might be something wrong with my emotional sight," the 23-year-old actor said. "The only emotional connection of relevance is with my dog. My relationship with my dog, it's ridiculous."
Which is more than he can say about his relationship with vaginas.
The racy photo shoot he did for Details positioned the heartthrob between the legs of a female model, and Pattinson said it made him a bit antsy.
"I really hate vaginas," he said. "I'm allergic to vagina. But I can't say I had no idea, because it was a 12-hour shoot, so you kind of get the picture that these women are going to stay naked after, like, five or six hours. But I wasn't exactly prepared. I had no idea what to say to these girls. Thank God I was hungover."
There was, however, a redeeming quality of the shoot for Pattinson.
"This shoot, it's kind of eighties nakedness, you know? If you look at porn in, like, the eighties, there was something kind of quaint about it, quite sweet—like this little naked community," Pattinson explained. "The people who made it liked it, they had respect for it. Not remotely like the porn that's available now. No community in it at all. It's just everything, everywhere."
Pattinson is currently working on an adaptation of the Guy de Maupassant novel "Bel Ami," and will make his next appearance on the silver screen in March in the drama "Remember Me."
