Robert Pattinson really, really likes his dog
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."

I think he means he is shy around so many women especially with them being naked. He is a very modest guy. Some people are like that. It doesn't mean he is gay. Liking his dog more just means that he doesn't have to commit to her like he does to a female person because he is shy. Dogs love there owners no matter what.
Most men I know that are strait would run over a tank to get to a vagina, that's the reason porn is "everywhere"!
Shhhh. You're upsetting all the tweens.
He needs to get over himself! Are we really supposed to feel bad for him because he "made" it in the business and can't handle the stress of sucess?? Give me a break go get a job at a carwash and stop bitching. So sick of these stars complaining about their sucess. They should be happy somebody is willing to overpay them for their so-called talent. Real people are barely getting by and they whine because oh my the girls like me?? Time to get in tune with the real world people!!! 20 bucks he's gay....
This string of comments is still more proof that people on the internet do not "get" jokes.
All I want to say is, at some point everybody on this board has said something that came across as it should not have been. What if someone was putting you down and calling you names for it. I guarantee you would not like it either. Put yourselves in his place. He may be in showbiz, but he is still a human being that does not deserve all of the hatred. All of you that feels they need to put him down need to get over yourselves because all you are doing is making yourselves look like biased, senseless idiots. Move on. It's amazing to me how stupidity runs amuck.
Leave the poor guy alone. Why so much hate? I don't like Twilight but I think he's a nice and smart guy. He's clearly joking. Anyways loved his interview. Funny guy.
One of his favorite songs is "Soft" by Kings of Leon. It's about a guy who has erectile dysfunction as he is so drunk and can't get it up to have sex. It's well know Pattinson drinks like a fish. Heck, he can't make it through an interview without getting inebriated. Coincidence? Don't think so.
I see all the Robsessed have come here to stand up for their idol's honor. "It's a joke." Saying you're allergic to vaginas is one thing but hating them? Face it, he is inept and acts like he is 12 and should leave the comedy routines for those who are actually talented at humor.
Do you get his joke when he says he's allergic to vaginas? Thats such an old joke. The man is a classic. That joke means his penis swells up at the sight of vaginas. What guys doesn't? The man is smart if you ask me.
Its British humor. I can't believe you guys are bashing him for nothing. He's a smart, talented, funny and interesting man. I think he's a nice guy.
I am sitting back and laughing at seeing all these adult female Twihards and Robloonies hyperventilating and rushing to his defense because gasp...their sparkling vampire in shining armor is either 1)gay 2)misogynistic 3)very confused about women and life in general 4)well on his way to a drinking problem. So what if he's gay? So what if he's not? He still comes across as an idiot.
You guys need to learn how to take a joke. I even understood his vagina joke. All straight men are allergic to vaginas. We SWELL up at the sight of vaginas. The poor guy had to do a shoot with beautiful naked women for hours without the need to rub. Get my drift? I doubt he's gay.
I like him. he is a bit different.
Well..he better take some Benadryl when he with me. XP
CNN is the no-spin zone. Wait..that's fox news. Anyways his tween fans and desperate housewives can spin this all they want it's not going to change the fact that he's a homosexual.
That's not brit humor, my british friend concur. That's him trying to come out the closet. Society is so warped in how they see that as a bad thing.
I agree – it's British Humor, guys amazing actor and singer and so very young, give him a chance.
People! You make me laugh...why is there so much anger here?? Leave the poor guy alone. I really believe we will see great things out of Robert Pattinson as an actor and as a musician in the future. He's just getting started...he's under constant scrutiny...he's doing the best he can in his unnatural environment. Why do so many people rush to judgment and hostility? I'm thankful not to be in such an ugly place.
Thank you itsajoke for that explanation. I was having a hard time understanding what would possess a seemingly heterosexual man to say such a thing. It makes sense now.
You older people, did you forget when you were his age? How people forget!
Don't suppose he meant "vulva," did he? The vagina is an internal organ usually visible only with the assistance of a speculum. No wonder the poor boy's confused. He doesn't know what he's looking at . . . .
I found this on another site:
It's an old British joke. "DOCTOR DOCTOR, I think I'm allergic to vaginas!! Why do you think that sir? Because every time I see one I swell up and need to rub."
he has a fantastic british humor!!!! He is hilarius!!!!!!!!!!
GET OVER IT PEOPLE, HE'S NOT GAY
He was just glade he was hungover cause he would have been pokin out his pants if he wasnt
He was just happy he was hungover cause he would have been poking out his pants if he wasnt
I never understood how this wacko was picked to play Edward. Edward is supposed to the epitome of a male; Pattinson scarcely qualifies! When he took off his shirt in the latest movie, rather than be impressed (as I should have been with Edward), I was totally grossed out. He looked terrible. Pattison is a horrible pic for Edward, and the way he looks in every interview/picture makes it seem that he doesn't know what soap and a shower are for.
I'd be allergic to vagina too if I had to deal with female twilight fans.
He might not be gay (not that there's anything wrong with being gay) – he might just not like being forced into a position where he's posing tucked up against some naked model's "happy area" – a girl he probably doesn't know at all.
So, from a checklist perspective, there was no rumor of him trying to hook up with Kristen Stewart – that points to gay. There were reports of him being very bohemian and stinking quite a bit on set – the stinkiness points away from gay, and the boho thing means that he can say a lot of weird crap (like the above) and not have it mean what you think it means.
All told, I lean he's not gay, just very very weird – but I wouldn't bet on it.
He is referring to a British joke people, lighten up.
A man goes to the doctor. Says,"DOCTOR DOCTOR,I hate vaginas; I think i am allergic to them."
Doctor,'Why do you think that sir?"
Man,"Because every time I am near them, I get terribly swollen and need to rub it."
Don't say vagina.
Anyone else feel sorry for the dog? And is it male or female? Just saying.
He will never live this down. Now instead of just being "the vampire guy" now he is "the vampire guy who hates vaginas"
Bella needs to start worrying about Edward running off with Jacob.
The article's writer, Jenny Lumet, rewrote some of the script for Robert's upcoming film, 'Remember Me'. Have no desire to see it now as she seems as weird as he is and can only imagine what she did to it.
His dog died over a year ago. That's even worse! Are there any normal actors out there anymore?
He isn't the first and won't be the last handsome hearthrob to bat for the other team. Rob,you can be on my team anytime and we can play ball together!
This guy has his male and female handlers with him everywhere he goes,awards shows,publicity shoots etc. Now I see why. He is a complete idiot who says whatever comes to him no matter how inappropriate. Where were they when he was rambling on about hating vaginas and weird diseases that make your balls swell up?
He's a cross between Joaquin Phoenix and John Mayer. Like we need more idiots out there!
In the United States, when a man says he hates vaginas and is allergic to them-NEWS FLASH-he is gay. Don't know what he truly meant with his comments even after reading the article but Details is an American mag read by American men and they already think he is gay, and this will cement it.He better learn what to say and what not to say when it will be read by a different culture.
His mum must be so proud!
Robert always tries too hard to come across as a lofty intellectual but fails every time,he is too young and naive to be taken seriously and comes across as an idiot. He really needs to learn that anything that comes out of his mouth is subject to scorn and ridicule once in print esp. when he talks about hating vaginas and other bizarre things.
Gave him the benefit of the doubt until I read the entire article. Let me get this straight. He hates vaginas, only feels connected to his dog, appears to be addicted to porn, has to slam down a few drinks in a professional interview, shows up hungover for a photoshoot(saw the pics, he looks like he is about to hurl in some) and the best day of his life is with an elephant? All righty then. And this is what girls are screaming over?
He'll be the next star we read about going off to rehab. He is already ruining his good looks with booze and chain smoking and judging from his bizarre interviews, major ganga as well. He is 23 and looks to be in his 30's.
Love all these fangirls coming here in droves to defend their sparkly vamp..."It's an old British joke! He swells up when he sees vagina!" I am from the UK and have NEVER heard of that "joke" and I am 45 and have been around. Face it girls, he is either gay or just nuts. You can still look at him and dream.
What do people expect from a man who at age 21, got his then 17 year old Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart to watch Last Tango in Paris with him?? He talked about it in interviews like it was ok. Then he proceeded to bed her while she had a long term boyfriend and she left him for Pattinson. Nice.
I read the whole article and have also read other interviews with him. The guy is seriously weird and has to have alcohol as a crutch. He really appears to have major psychological issues and looks like a very insecure, neurotic guy with anxiety problems. Don't think he is gay but probably has impotence problems(from all the drinking he does)and why he attached himself to his teenage costar-she wouldn't know the difference.
I love all the ladies who are getting pissed off about what he said.
I think this is absolutely hilarious, the icon of probably millions of teenage girls [and lonely single moms] hates vagina. I also read somewhere before saying he thought Stephanie Meyer was insane and that the reason Edward looks like such a manic depressive kid is because he made sure to act that part when he read the book just because he hated him so much/
RIGHT ON! Female genitalia are hardly every man's dream and I commend this guy for telling it like it is!
How does he think he came into this world?
sounds like he's just a dude and doesn't want to be seen as this role model or sex symbol for a bunch of middle aged women and teens alike. Even though that's career gold, I feel like everytime I hear him talk he's beating down that image by talking about booze and drugs and hating the attention
Dumb Americans, it is a JOKE. He is allergic to vagina because it makes him swell. It is a common joke in the UK. Blame the reporter not Robert.
You people dont know sexy. He's so hot. I'd bite him. ok now to the point who cares if he likes woman or guys. does it matter. how does this affect your lives it doesnt. you just get on here and want to complain about everyone, get a life. as for me I am just killing time at work, and reading all your stupid comments. I think he does a good job in the twlight saga.
Allergies making you "swell up"?! Mayve that's an English thing. The only thing *my* allergies do is give me red, watery eyes, explosive sneezes, and a runny nose.
British people are wierd.
Well, he's 23, what do you expect? His brain is barely developed and he has a propensity to say outlandish things like lots of youngsters do.
He meant that without love the idea of looking at a vagina and wanting sex leaves him with a big feeling of zero inside. He hates the idea of being turned on by a women simply by a display of her private parts and not turned on because he wants to love, cherish her and have babies with her. I hope.
So THIS is what the public "flavor of the month" is?
Not worth your time or mine...!
I love this man!
I think the fact is he's scared of vaginas.
Amazingly, when the Monty Python boys said crazy stuff very similar to this in the 70s everyone understood it was just British humour. And Robin Williams used to pump out wonky stuff like this at high speed without hundreds of people practically forming a lynch mob. Of course it might have been different had there been a way for the public to comment immediately after reading a quote back then. It's fascinating to watch the mob mentality gaining momentum in a thread like this.
I'm amazed at the amount of bile this article has drawn. He's a young kid who has yet to learn that anything he says in a long interview might be boiled down to two or three sentences, out of context, and used to nail him to the wall. If you read the full length interview you'll find he was saying a lot of off the wall things, clearly with tongue in cheek, and the whole vagina allergy thing was just one of many. Seriously, don't form quick opinions on one item spewed out by the media (mainstream or otherwise). Doesn't matter if it's entertainment "news" or important political issues, you're not necessarily getting anything more than carefully crafted bait.
Wow...how sad that his sarcasm and sense of humor is lost on so many people. He is making a joke when saying he's allergic to vagina, as in "im allergic to vagina...I swell up when Im around one"...pretty funny if not taken out of context as CNN does
A poster boy for his talentless generation of bad actors (Twilight, etc.) and bad singers (yes, Ms. Swift). Allergic to vaginas? Someone needs to come out of the closet.
He should enjoy the limelight while he can–Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew has its first member for the 2016 season.
I didn't know who this guy was but i must admit he knows what gets girls talking and a few boys too. i also didn't know vagina was as big a third rail issue as social security. Please people if we can't talk rationally about it we will never solve either problem and soon there won't be enough to go around.
So, allergic to vagina and a student of porn. His dog must be so proud!
"He isn't gay, he's British." - Will, from Will & Grace, paraphrased.
LADIES! He suffers from Erotophobia. Get over it. Gosh!
I would really like to say what a shame it is that these young "beautiful" stars of both sexes are required by their managers to behave like – horrible phrase but appropriate – meat on a slab. Speaking as one of the silent majority patiently, so patiently, waiting for the swing of the liberal behavioural pendulum to reach its outermost reaches before returning to the normality of behaviour showing respect for and to each other, can't you see what ammunition you are giving to other cultures? What a horrible turnoff the whole situation was, not only for Mr Pattinson but also for the rest of us to read about it.
Ay! !Que escandaolo!
Elizabeth Ashwood – LOVE your posts and agree with you...you're very funny!
I'm allergic to stupid celebrities...which is about all of them.
Listen to all the women who think THEY were rejected by this guy's comments! First thing they do is get all offended and trash the guy. Hah, like he'd sleep with any of you anyway!
Wow really ppl...??
Its called sence of HUMOR!!
Let the guy be him self... If ur no fan dnt judge him
Every Rob fan out there know that he's jus a dork and he was jus tryin to be funny that's jus who he is he makes a joke outa everything....read the freakin article again and read it carefully ... U will notice he makes fun of himself a lot and when he talks about his dog his obviously trying to avoid the whole "are you dating anyone" or "is it true your dating ur costar" question.....
so the whole "alergic" " hate" vagina things is him trying to be funny geesh.....
And stop hating ... He's so cute and totally not greesy check the pics of the photo shoot he looks pretty cleaned up to me
N out of the shoot?... He has his own style everyone does...
Ugh ...(close minded ppl swear)
Obviously, the vagina was good enough for him to come to this world. And it will be good enough to carry his future children.
What a rude moron! He is nothing special, just lucky, that's all!
I think I may be allergic as well...everytime I get near a vagina, or even think about one, I start getting a peculiar swelling....
i think rob was being sarcastic about the whole thing and they made it seem like he was serious... i mean he was hungover too. he did look uncomfortable in those pics with the semi-naked/naked girls... but then again it seems like a strange way to do a photoshoot. i'm not allergic to penises but it doesn't mean i'd wanna sit there and pose with naked men.
In "Bel Ami" he'll be playing a cad who uses women. Maybe he's a method actor. I don't know what he thought he was saying, or how he thought people would take it, or whether he thought it was funny.
Someone should tell his pretentious butt to go hide under a rock.
Has any of you haters read the actual article? Read the full article first before you judge this guy. It's an old British joke–he's not gay nor he trully hates vaginas. He's an intelligent young actor with a great sense of humor. Give this guy a break!
To all the older women into this crap, who paid hard money for it:
Go ahead, Prince Charming is waiting!
What surprises me most about the article is that it was printed at all. There are some things that we just don't need to know about. AND, this is one of those interviews that should have never gone to print.
I love that this is what "America's Most Trusted News Source" is reporting. Just goes to show there's no dignity or hope for American media whatsoever. Why give more attention to stupid comments than they deserve? America deserves better. And, news that actually contributes something to our knowledge, not idiocracy that wastes time and encourages more of the same.
LOL!!!...You guys are just overeacting people.....he is not gay...it only means that he is NOT maniac....For me, he is an interesting and good guy....
Team Edward!!! and an allergic reaction causes things to swell!!! Hellloooooo!!!! I'm 26 and I think he's super sexy and I saw twilight and New Moon and saw some pretty cool Moms in the audience so don't be so stuck up and prudish ladies!!! Have fun!!!
Haha.. I love Robert Pattinson. He wins my respect for a) hating Twilight, b) thinking Stephanie Meyer is a weirdo, c) not pretending to be impressed by the hordes of creepy fangirls stalking him and d) saying he's allergic to vaginas. I think it's hilarious and am laughing at the offended comments here. He's a cool dude, I'd chill with him.
if we all unite maybe we can run this self absorbed, detached from the world.. and now gay out of california. I also read his remarks on black people who he refers to as "negroes" , they were repulsive.
This guys sucks.
He must spend countless hrs just thinking about himself, he tries very hard to be self deprecating to sound cute..too bad everyone knows he's trying. What a loser.
Boycott and don't see any of this racist movies.
I have said and done quite a lot of foolish things in my life. But I have never insulted vagina. In fact, I have tried to be quite nice to it. I am allergic to dudes who are allergic to vagina. But then again, I don't mind dudes who are allergic to vagina because that leaves more vagina for those of us who aren't allergic to vagina. And this is a record for me typing vagina in one paragraph.
LOL after all that's been said, nothing is gonna happen really. RPatz is going to be RPatz. Those who love him will continue to love him and those who hate him will continue to hate him.
The winner? CNN.
Why would he be embarrased to be around naked models for 12 hours? Did he honestly think he had to "keep it up" for 12 hours? No one can. But I don't think he was kidding. Maybe he IS gay. No straight guy would ever admit to being uncomfortable around a vagina!
I totally agree with deb. People just because he siad that he was allergic to vaginas doesn't mean that he's gay!!!!!
Seriously people?? Has the world's IQ plummeted so low that we don't even understand humor anymore? It was a joke. Period. He has the classic British dry humor that requires people to have functioning brain cells to understand. Obviously the masses have lost the funny bone he mistakenly thought you had. The article was well written, but then again because it wasn't dumbed-down to the normal low American standards, many just don't get it. So sad.
Yeahyeah, I GOT the joke about being allergic and swollen. Not ALL Americans are without wit or humor. He's still a dork. Period.
(And for the record, I never implied or stated I think he's gay. I couldn't care less about his sexuality - but when he stated he 'really hates vagina' the cutest retort I could come up with was - yeah?! well, vagina ain't so KEEN on you either, kid.)
And to Melissa who told me to "get real," - honey, I'm a good length from 40, but I've been around the block. Tthis is as real as it gets. I'm a writer, an avid reader, and a self-appointed authority on all things and therefore allowed to have an opinion. I'd venture to guess that the group of vaginas who agree with me are likely the same set who might cringe at a 40 y/o referring to this child as a "hottie." Me, I'm real, you grow up.
The best thing about this kid is Jimmy Fallon's impression of him on Late Night.
I'm just looking forward to the obligatory bloated bathtub corpse shot, with a pan away to the randomly-strewn about pills, and dissolve to the autopsy report. Team Deadward.
He is British. Brits are known to have sarcastic zany humor. It sounds like he was making a joke in British sarcastic humor. I have heard interviews with him and he makes sarcastic jokes often, like most Brits. I think this is where the written word can't tell the tone of his voice so it is read wrong. When you read it you think "What?" but knowing he is British it sounds like a joke.
oh wait, I forgot, he's British. I bet when he said it in his British accent, it was adorable, funny, and absolutely endearing...just reading it, he sounds like a gay porn-addict who talks to his dog.
uh, is this his way of coming out?
OMG..the comments here just proves that HE IS FAMOUS... why do people waste their precious time in reading this article and voicing out their idea if you DISLIKE him that bad... you have been bitten!
Read the whole article (it is posted on Details). Great interview. Media once again takes one quote completely out of context and posts it for the sake of morbid sensationalism. READ the interview. This guy is great.
Could it be... irony? I personally am always fine with being surrounded by vagina.
Clearly he was exaggerating and probably drunk.....
Hates being around a naked woman + allergic to vaginas = Lots of disappointed female fans.
P.S. I'm worried for the dog .
how would all the women out there that think penises are gross, like it if they were labelled lesbians? Such double standards – vaginas are gross!
I'm not sure what this says about me, but as a 36 year old woman (with a vagina I might add), I think I like him more after reading this. I don't know too much about him, but he doesn't seem to take himself too seriously, likes to have fun and be real... which is more that I can say for most of Hollywood. And I have to agree with a previous comment, they cut and paste so much in interviews so who knows what was actually said.
P.S. If you don't like him, don't bother to read the articles and waste your time blogging about it. He's not going to read it, so what's the point???
Obviously he's gay!!!
I guess he will not be watching the play "The Vagina Monologues"
In any event he gets a zillion dollars with of Publicity out of that
one comment, who is the joker here?
Could be he has a very dry humor that needs a little KY jelly.
Would someone please tell me what on earth is good looking about this guy? He has hideous eyes, overthick eyebrows, no upper lip etc. What do they see in him? He is certainly no dream boat.
He was glad he was hungover so as not to walk around the photoshoot set and in front of everybody with an ERECTION, that's why he says he's allergic and was glad for a hungover, it prevented some really embarassing moments on the set...
The joke starts with
Man: 'Doctor, I hate vaginas, I think I'm allergic to them.
Doctor: Why do you say that?
Man: Because my p*nis swells up whenever I see one'
or something to that effect.
This guy admits he has no publicist, doesn't want one and you can tell. I read the whole thing and he is even stranger than I thought with a drinking problem to boot.
Well said Elizabeth Ashwood!
I always thought it was me that thinks this guy is an idiot. After reading this bit of the article, it confirms that he is an idiot and a half.
I'm definitely allergic to him and his stupidity!!!!!!!!!!
Wow I was unaware that when you're in your 20s that drinking and being hungover is unacceptable! I'm 24 and not that I'm an alcoholic but going out an drinking is not necessarily a BAD thing. Also, if I was in a room with a bunch of naked models, I'd probably need some something to relax me as well. You people are ridiculous! He's a young guy who says some pretty off the wall stuff but come on, he's the hottest thing in Hollywood right now and is still trying to get used to all the attention. I HIGHLY doubt that he is gay and I do believe he is incredibly good looking.
You people don't know how to take a joke. He's even admitted in previous interviews that he jokes quite a lot and doesn't mean some of the things he says.
What is it about our society that that loves to watch people fall from grace? How we love to tear people down! This is a young man that has been thrust into the limelight. From all that I have read, this is something he is not comfortable with. I think the only thing he is guilty of is taking some bad advice about doing this layout and not realizing that some of the things he said would be misinterpreted. I have seen him interviewed and have been impressed with how articulate and charming he is. Take a good hard look at most of the young people in film and on reality shows. He attempts to maintain privacy and doesn't seek a photo op every chance he gets. He is inquisitive and thinks about what he is doing with his life. And in this day when most college students haven't read a book, he is a voracious reader.
How safe for all of you to sit behind your computers and spew hatred towards someone you don't even know because of a few statements taken out of context. Did you read any of the rest of the article? Yes, he had a few beers. So what! He had a conversation over several hours and some of it might have been silly, but the interviewer was a participant,too.
I'm just a bit shocked at the amount of hatred and vile things said. Does it make you sleep better? At least he is putting himself out there. More than I can say for some of you.
Pattinson is not gay. I'm sure his long term girlfriend Kristen Stewart loved his comment about only feeling emotionally connected to his dog. I believe his allergy comment was to say he was uncomfortable around those nude girls but he couldn't have said it in a classier way, like "I'm kind of shy so it was kind of uncomfortable?" He is almost 24 and acts 15. And FOUR beers during an interview? No wonder he sounds like an idiot.
I realize a few have already said this, but what's with some of these women getting so defensive over his "vagina" statement? One would think Robert Pattinson was making personal comments about each and every one of these ladies. Jeez. And they go as far as making negative responses about the poor guy, like he's going to read them... or even care.
Now there are people out there who obviously see this situation differently – that's completely okay. But please don't try to make this a case of sexism or chauvinism because it's clearly not. Seriously, these women act as if they've been personally attacked and they haven't. The man is entitled to his own opinion, for whatever reason. And it is an opinion. Calm the the hell down.
Read the full article. Nice looking guy but VERY strange and looks to have major issues.
You know I liked this guy in Harry Potter and Twilight. In Twilight he had a mystery to him that I really liked but the more I read about him I slowly start not liking him. In almost every interview he says how he doesn't like the attention he is getting and then he says he doesn't like vagina's. Does he realize what that sounds like. Makes a person wonder.
I just think it's sad that he had to devastate his cat like that in a national magazine. I'm pretty sure he told "OK Magazine" not a mere month ago that he had a relationship with his cat. Now it's with his dog. When will celebrities learn to be more thoughtful of their partners. Sheesh.
PLEASE tell me he's NOT gay. I love him to pieces. He is SOOOOOO SEXY.;
1) HES JOKING.
2) He hates being Edward Cullen and hates Twilight fans. People giving him crap might do well to remember that.
I'm with you Melissa, thank God everything I said and did when I was young wasn't captured on film or paper. Egads. I've seen Rob interviewed many times and he doesn't appear to take himself or his new found fame too seriously, which I think is a smart way to go. Celebrities get asked the same idiotic questions over and over and I think just to mix it up a bit they say things to be funny and perhaps those things aren't true. Lighten up people. I think he's cute, has a great sense of humour and also has the potential to be a really good actor and I am soooo not in his demographics. He's 23 for crying out loud. Do you think he knew saying those things would get people talking? Hmmmmm.
Follow-up: He does seem to have a deep understanding of porn, however. He must be talking about the gay porn community from the 1980s. I suspect he has all the Village People albums.
I'd suspect he might be a "Zoophile"
Overly emotional atatchment to his dog???
I'm seeing a lot of angry women in these comments– Are you girls mad that the Edward of your fantasies is really a regular guy with regular looks, or perhaps because he admitted he wouldn't jump into bed with any woman that comes his way?
It's funny how people hem and haw about men only thinking of women for their bodies, but when one says he's uncomfortable being around strange naked women and their sex organs, he's instantly either hideously unattractive or secretly gay. At least there's not a double standard or anything; it's completely expected of a normal woman to enjoy being surrounded by anonymous men swinging their genitals about, and no one would ever be offended if you implied that!
Good thing, too, because double standards and hypocrisy are almost unattractive as stubble and uncombed hair.
Oh My God! Keep your eye open over your shoulder for this guy!!!!!
I think he is just having fun with people. He knows the masses will read this and go nuts with it. I would have a blast doing the same thing if I were a young actor.
You go, Elizabeth. Frankly. I don't care if he's straight, gay, bi or die, he's just EEWWWWW!!!
I hope people aren't commenting here without actually reading the whole article.
I completely agree that he was likely just trying to express a bit of embarrassment about being photographed with the naked girls for 12 hours.
He was likely responding to something Jenny Lumet asked him about how it felt to be in that situation (notice that even in the full interview they leave out her actual question), and he was probably trying to make himself not seem so macho. He's great at making fun of himself.
And if he was actually gay- why would so many people talk about it here as if it was a scandal or disease?
Perhaps some of you all here could relax and drink a couple of beers yourselves.

Some of these comments are so incredibly nasty about his looks. When did this become acceptable commentary? I'm sure that the people making these comments are not even in his league.
That is actually...more true than you think about all these smegging females talking bad about how he looks. Fyi, he's 23, he's allowed to drink a bit. I'm 25 and don't drink, but 95% of my friends do. Just leave the Brit alone, jeeze. I love how the males posting are picking on whether he's gay or not, and poking mean comments at those females that are mad that people think this poor Brit is gay. Think about it, no offense Brits, but he IS A BRITISH MALE. Let him be. Seriously. An DREAM ON little girls.
Instead of focusing on the part of his comments that might be misinterpreted (allergic) focus instead on the part that are crystal clear. When a 23 year old man says he has to be hungover to endure being around naked women because he "really hates vaginas" it means he's gay. All the discussion about allergic jokes are irrelevent. Ask the next ten straight guys you meet his age if they'd say the same thing about not wanting to be around naked women because of hating vaginas. He should just admit he's gay. People would at least accepting of that than being a "vagina hater."
There are some good articles out there on the interwebs detailing how Americans do not understand the British use of irony. Some of you guys should check it out. Silly, melodramatic Americans... ; )
I'm glad that's more for me. You're right he does look greasy.
He absolutely must be gay. You do not make comments like that without pretty much "outing yourself." Goofball.
I am not gay but I do hate vaginas. I mean, think about it: they are dark, dank, smelly, oozy, hairy, ugly, "infectiousy", "bleedy", and responsible for fornication, the spread of venereal disease, and massive overpopulation and the destruction of this planet.
What's there to love?
Good job CNN! Since there is a lack of jobs in the economy, give people more reasons to waist time gossiping. I am surprised that you don't title the article people who love their dogs are...JUST give us relevant news cause your not any better than the gossip sites.
Please pause a moment to remember that he is British and that British slang is very different from American slang. For example, when Alfred Hitchcock made the movie "Psycho," he gave Norman Bates the hobby of "stuffing birds." That was a gibe at American censors, because in Britain "stuffing birds" was slang for raping girls, something the censors would not allow Hitchcock to directly state. So, perhaps "allergic to vaginas" means something different in British slang versus its literal meaning in American English. Or, it could mean that since Twilight came out, he's been getting so many vaginas that, like Elvis, his threshold of titillation has gotten so high that the thrill ain't what it used to be.
Everyone should read this to understang Rob's interview intead of spewing biased hatred.
Having to hang around for 12 hours with naked models – must have been awful…
Ummmm . . . yeah. Great title, CNN! You totally suckered me into reading this piece of banality. I'm ashamed of myself.
Hey guys! Don't make fun of him. I, too, have a serious vagina-allergy, much in the same way that some are allergic to peanuts or ragweed. Whenever I am within two to three feet of a vagina, my eyes mist up and I start to sneeze uncontrollably.
It's probably another case of suppressed bestiality syndrome or closet homesexuality. I wouldn't worry too much unless the dog is not neutered.
I was thinking he was gay too, but then I read Melissa's response. Makes sense. I get it. His penis was "swelling" because he is "allergic" to vagina. He was glad he was hungover because it prevented him from having a stiffy during the entire shoot.
Some of these comments are so incredibly nasty about his looks. When did this become acceptable commentary? I'm sure that the people making these comments are not even in his league.
You have a drunk 23 year old talking out of his ear. He probably meant he was allergic to having a vagina in his face – which frankly, as a female, I wouldn't be too thrilled about either.
And since when does CNN bother with stories about the aesthetics of vaginae anyway.
Seriously, leave this for OMG yahoo or something.
Wow, all of this is taken so out of context. Think back on every other comment he's made, this guy gets embarrassed when put into uncomfortable situations. He laughs and makes awkward jokes when put into the spotlight. Who would do better after 12 hours photo shooting, with naked people you don't know.
Most people don't have clue what that kind of pressure would be like. It's easy to hate when you don't know the entire situation. Which is then edited and often changed. He gets drunk as often as every other young englishman. Mickie Rourke loves his dog, does that make him Gay? Uh, No.
I'm just saying, a little less judgement would go along way.
I would recommend that this guy read something like Don Miguel Ruiz', "The Four Agreements" and get a life beyond the movies!
I'm amazed at how many women don't get what hes saying. "Allergic to vagina" means "I'm gay." Its not a stab at women, hes just trying to come out. Relax women, you can still hate the rest of us for wanting your vagina.
Does no one understand that irony exists, and that perhaps RPattz here is using a bit of it?
He was probably misquoted after all Detail is a gay mag.
He's British. Things across the Pond have different meanings as they have here in America. Ask Britains for a fag out there and see what you get.
oh for pete's sake. it's a joke that he told poorly.
"I'm allergic to vaginas... when I'm around them I get all swollen"...
that's why he was happy he was hungover.
it's a classic bawdy joke. of course the news journalists here are about 16 so they would never have heard it before.
The LAnd of Dumbases has found a new king. This idiot sounds so full of himself. Some people should just not talk...what a waste.
We are all victims of what we call "selective reading." i sometimes wonder whether there is a need for everyone to revisit what we call synonyms. it's not good to assume that a person is gay if he said "i'm gay."
I'm going to make this easy for everyone. He said he hated vaginas. When a man makes a statement that he "hates vaginas", what do you think that means? Do you think it means he's straight and likes women? Of course he's gay. If someone said they hated blacks but weren't racist, would that make sense to you also?
A few of us have already explained or alluded to what this means already: There is a joke about a man going to the doctor, saying he hates vaginas; that he is allergic to them. The doctor asks him why he thinks he is allergic, and the man says–because everytime I am near them, I get terribly swollen. (some add that the man also said, And I have the urge to rub).
Meaning, in the context of the article ( where Rob was asked about the 12 hour photo shoot with naked women), Rob was saying it was uncomfortable, even though he knew about the shoot, how could you prepare– he had that 'allergic' reaction–that he was 'swollen' to speak. Which, BTW, makes it pretty clear to anyone with brains that he is not gay. But we don't expect tabloids and ragazines etc to display use of brains. Although the joke is adolescent boy all the way, it was brilliant of Rob to reference it rather than blatantly be uncouthe and say, as Sarah Bear noted, that he had a raging H.O. the whole bloody time.
Those with understanding will understand, those without will not, and those who want to attack the poor lad and trip him up, and those who are utterly deluded, will either understand and ignore, or will not understand at all and splay their ignorance and/or stupidity for all to see.
The fact that he hates personal hygiene makes him a freak; in addition to that, he is someone who has absolutely no class; his comments prove it. He probably feels that being famous is enough of a reason to say whatever he pleases, and that people will accept his statements; well, sir, let me break it to you gently: you are vulgar and unappealing.
Okay.. so maybe I wasn't trying to speak for all grown-up women, just the ones with good taste.
If you owned a seafood restaurant and I revealed to you I was allergic to seafood, would you take it personally? Sheesh!
I'm 52 and think he is cute in some photos. Looks like he needs to wash his hair most of the time. I have heard him in interviews and he seems awkward and uncomfortable. I think people are reading too much into what he said. I think he was saying he was uncomfortable during the photo shoot. Just my opinion.
He.Is.Gay.And of course he won't come out and say that because it may not do wonders for his career considering 95% of his fan base is female, don't want to ruin the illusion after all.I've seen some of his other interviews and have come to the conclusion that he is a weird fella to say the least (eccentric?).I do love that british accent though.
I think the allergic comment would be fine as a stand alone... I think major "confusion" starts when he says he 'hates vagina'...
Sure, I could see the majority of the male population admitting that they hate "women", but absolutely NOT vagina! It's just unfortunate that the women need to be attached to them!
Allergic? Sure, odd British humor. But hate?? That just doesn't make any sense.
This guy is a juvenile, he will probably grow up in his 60's and realize how great vaginas are.
High five Elizabeth Ashwood. He seem like such a little tool. Sometimes when these stars don't have a thing to say they should just stay silent.
doesn't anyone find this a bit coincidental with john mayer's recent playboy interview?
Oh, and by the way – Details is owned by Condé Nast, which is owned by Advance Publications, which has been partnered up since 1994 with Time Warner, which owns CNN.
Please keep that in mind if you're wondering how this is worthy of a link on CNN's main page.
What I think is so funny is the high majority of people who are commenting negatively about him. If you don't like him then don't read any articles about him! It's that simple. Who cares who his relationships are with. I know for a fact that just because he is a well known person that doesn't necessarily mean that he isn't going to be nervous around a large group of scandily clad women. You know that if you were that age you would be too!! Get over it and don't read about him anymore. I happen to like him (greasiness and all). Grow up, shut up, and move on already.
This is a ridiculous article, and he is abit stupid. When the story ran that Pattinson and Stewart (is that her name)' was told to cool their romance by their handlers – that was an obvious ploy. Handlers have no say in their clients personal relationships, so why would they release the story? Possibly an attempt to squash gay rumours about him.
Either way, he's an alcoholic in the making. His career will nose dive into rehab any day now.
I bet he doesn't feel this way on a Saturday night when the bars are closing & he hasn't met anybody yet.-Call me.
When is someone going to send this trainwreck to rehab? Good Lord, he's only 23, looks to be in his 30's from the alcohol abuse, and he constantly looks ripped...boy i'd like to be around when he's rollin' a fattie, which looks to be pretty much CONSTANTLY.
He couldn't act in HP, he DEFINITELY didn't have what it took to be a lead in that stupid vampire flick...and he's obviously a nightmare for his handlers, being completely under the influence so much of the time that he doesn't even know what he's saying
I'll take the vagina that he doesn't want! I could be a satiated man!
Brilliant "news" reporting, CNN. I'll head back over to NPR now.
I knew he was gay
I wonder if it registered on the world's seismographs when the jaws of the millions of tween girls collectively drop when they heard that line.
To "The (not so) sane one": Rock Hudson also said he was straight and was even married for several years to a woman who later claimed she had no idea that he was gay. But the "allergic to vagina" line sounds like a hung-over induced slip of the tongue (ie.: the truth). Get over your denial, Sane One, and let your secret crush be gay man he is. It's okay.
So all this time my wife and her sisters were drooling over a gay vampire? Wait til she hears this.
I too am allergic to vagina but I'm not gay.
AHAHAHAHAHA! Take that Twilight fangirls, the haters were right all along!
Vaginas are pretty disgusting and I have one
Obviously, people don't get classic sarcasm anymore. The guy is just saying he has the typical "male" reaction around naked women.
I'm floored that this type of article is written and that he is doing a naked/semi naked photo shoot. He is a teenage heart throb and appeals to the youth of our society. Most of his comments are absolutley not the kind of material children need to witness from someone they idolize. Talking about being hungover and naked photo shoots. Way to be in touch with your fan base
I think vagaina is allergic to me!
Low IQ and looks like an insect. He will fade out after the Vampire movies are over.
In all honesty, who can blame the guy. Vaginas do look like hissing alien creatures....maybe he just likes mangina?
I KNEW IT!
Is he trying to out-stupid-comment John Mayer?
I don't get it
yep, it's an old brit joke. he's quite cheeky, isn't he? but yeah, there's sort of a "language barrier" there when it comes to brit/american humour
Exactly, that's most likely what he meant, shame it didn't come across too well, people just don't get it.
wow. the scrutiny this guy are under...it's a wonder he bothers to speak at all...I don't understand what the big deal is...he didn't think about how people would twist everything he said to make it fit whatever agenda they are pushing. Can you even imagine that pressure–every time you open your mouth, you have to run through every single way that what you say can be twisted or taken out of context. Let's just give the guy a break. He's only twenty-three. I think people forget that he is still way young and really is just a normal immature young guy thrust into this crazy circus called Hollywood. All of young hollywood say stupid things, but the level of outrage and speculation and scrutiny is just ridiculous.
Evidently he not finding the right vagina. I had bad vagina once and I felt allergic.
@Patric, there's a British joke that goes like this
A man goes to the doctor.
Says,"DOCTOR DOCTOR, I hate vaginas; I think I am allergic to them."
Doctor,'Why do you think that sir?"
Man,"Because every time I am near them, I get terribly swollen and need to rub."
That's what Rob meant, allergic=swelling up, erection.
it's an allegory
You people just don't get the joke here. Those who follow him know he's jokey and sarcastic in his interviews, and often exaggerates, just read any of his other interviews. or even this one (the whole interview.)
In this one for Details he also talks about elephants directing movies and writing screenplays, and picking him off the ground...
"(...)Then she (the elephant) took my entire body in her mouth. I was holding on to her head, and as I slowly let go she tightened her grip really carefully until I'm just upside down in her mouth and she's going through my pockets with her trunk, looking for peppermints. It was the best day of my life."
"(...)They were movie elephants. One had written a screenplay, and one really wants to direct."
Rob likes to joke a lot, and you just have to know when he does, here he clearly does. You just have to get his dry sense of humour....
You people don't get it. Let me break it down. When he says he's allergic it means his penis started swelling up with all of the naked vagina around him. That's what he means when he says he wasn't prepared and didn't know what to say to the models. He was laying there with a hard-on and couldn't do anything about it.
People who are trying to justify his comments, please reread AGAIN!
"I really hate vaginas," he said. "I'm allergic to vagina."
"These post shows that people don't know how to read and don't understand the English the language. When you are allergic to something – you swell, you reddens, you feel hot, you have a strong reaction to it so that weird things happen to your body"- Jenna
Umm..thanks Jenna for explaining the English language to us on what the word "allergic" means. Now, can you explain what the word "hate" means???
Either way, it's a stupid article & a stupid move on his part! He should change his name to John Mayer.
There's TEETH in them thar vaginas! ..........as wise men know.
Bob – I don't think Pattinson knows what a metaphor is or how to use one. And I don't think "I hate vaginas" is metaphorical either.
Oh geez, he belongs to the Adam Lambert Club of Too Much Information.
The term "allergic" is a metaphor, as in his winky gets bigger..hint hint. Hes trying to be vaguely funny but comes off as a gay weasel. Its an old term I guess you've never heard, give the guy a break already..
These comments are hilarious!! Thanks for the laughs, friends.
Robert Pattinson – officially the most undesirable man in show business.
I am so creeped out...
SWEET JESUS!!! I'm impressed this article is getting this much blog...just think if some of our comments/thoughts could be used to help out in our failing economy, health care or education system. wink wink Rob!
The Cure called, they want their look back!!!
'(...) And here I am, with Javier [Beltrán], who plays Lorca, doing an extremely hard-core sex scene, where I have a nervous breakdown afterward. And because we’re both straight, what we were doing seemed kind of ridiculous."
– Rob Pattinson, GQ April 2009
Robert flat out said he is STRAIGHT in his GQ interview, not much to misinterpret here. He also talked about his ex-girlfriends a few times before. He dated Nina Schubert for 3 years before becoming big due to Twilight.
Then we get a sarcastic comment from him many people take out of context and spin it to mean he's gay. Even though the LAST thing a closeted actor would say is what Rob said, use logic people. He said that cause he's confident in his manhood and heterosexuality.
Two comments, one straighforward and clear, the other isn't
Both come from the same person, so why take one and ignore the other
Rob outright said he's straight and was sarcastic.joking when he said he's allergic to vaginas (how could this mean he's gay really puzzles me)
That's just his dry sense of humour showing there, he was referring to being uncomfortable around two naked models he doesn't even know for 12 hour long photoshoot.
hahaha Rob must be laughing his head off. Way to throw a wrench in the "are they/aren't they" circus! So vague and random. Genius!
If I were allergic to vagina, I'd be walking around covered in hives w/ a big fat smile on my face. Is he really alllergic to vagina, or is that just an excuse to surround himself w/ penis? I think he's teetering between homo and metro sexuality, but I highly doubt he's straight.
Did anyone else think that maybe, just maybe, he's having some fun with this? If I was 23 and on the kind of roll he's on, I think I'd definitely be a bit arrogant and full of myself.
Actually, I'll bet he likes vaginas – a lot.
Rod...Now that's funny! & OK Aly...I loved the Twilight books. I'm a normal 38yr old woman & I thought they were fun. Not classic literature, but entertaining. Of course you're right the Anne Rice novels were way better, her vampires were hotter & her writing was better. But Twilight was good too. There's nothing wrong with being entertained. As far as RP's comments...read the article it's hysterical!
On February 15th, 2010 12:52 pm ET, Wang said, "Robert and I get along really really well."
Funny that your last name could say a lot after this interview!
ugh, is this guy going to turn into the Jon Mayer of the UK,...
I only like him when he's playing Edward anyway...
I'm a Rob fan but I don't think the "allergic" comment has to do with swelling– I can't see how that makes any sense when the next thing he says is he "hates" it.
He could have said the remark in a sarcastic tone which was lost in the interview, or he could have just said the first thing that came to mind that described how uncomfortable and uneasy he was at the photoshoot.
If you watch his other interviews you will notice that he often says contradictory and outrageous things, and is usually very self-deprecating. Perhaps he was brushing off how macho it sounds to have naked women hanging on you all day.
Anyway, I took the dog comment to be just a deflection from questions about his much gossiped about love-life.
Umm, I believe a lot of people are missing the joke. It's British humor people. He's allergic to vaginas–it makes him "swell up" get it? Allergic=swelling.
People, this was an interview in "Details." We're not talking about a high level of journalistic integrity. I'd take the interview with a grain of salt and put it in the context that CNN has – namely he was drunk. And then think about his fans – how many 17 year old girls read "Details" magazine? Who cares? The 17 year old girls certainly don't!
Peanut Butter! Now THAT's funny, Bryan Brewer! BTW what's the big deal? I get what he meant. He can't win....if he'd said he loves v's and can't get enough of them he would've been called a pig and a manwhore. He's 23 and a Brit. Give him a break.
Thank God I was hungover." What is he talking about, God and the words Hung over in the Same Breath. Talking about bad Carma, he needs to Grow up. and at least act like he has some brains. Oh wait I Forgot he can't act,
There's a novel way of making sure you get no dates for the foreseeable future...admit your only meaningful relationship is with a dog and say "I really hate vaginas".
People! You guys don't get British humor at all! "I'm allergic to vaginas" is an old British joke meaning allergic as in "swell". That joke is as old as the hills over here! That's why he said "thank god I was hungover" Good grief people, you just don't get it.
oh well, I think he's only cute when he has his vampire makeup on anyway......
Unbeleivable.....the quintessential young actor, with EVERYTHING going for him, and that everything is of course the small beautiful wonderful triangle shaped heaven spot he has power over like most of us can only dream about...and he talks of it like it's an infectious disgusting tumor?
If this is only part of a funny interview, and its been taken out of context..I will surpress my dissapointment towards his comments..but if it's how he thinks..I'm like" C'mon Man!? "
Celebs never cease to amaze me. Why do we go to the movies to see these dolts is beyond me.
Okay...Twilight was stupid, both books and movies. Great for the teeny boppers who really are desperate for something to read. I recommend Anne Rice novels for the grown-ups. Now, Lori Chrys, any man that is straight knows the history of porn. I'm a 25 yr old female and know just a little bit, and I am straight. I don't like this 23 yr old, I don't like anyone who had anything to do with the Twilight crap. I'm just loving how all you females are super butthurt by him saying he'd rather spend time with his pet, and is allergic to yalls puss puss. Grow up please. If I were any celeb, I wouldn't wanna be around you people anyways. Course, I am the type that will hide in my bedroom when I don't want to be around people anyways. I hate people, equally. I highly doubt he's gay. You people realize how many STRAIGHT guys are honestly allergic to many things, including certain things from the vagina. If he was honestly gay, he'd have said something about the word vagina. Poor kid. These movies will always be hanging over him for the rest of his life.
I like what ya said, "Honesty"! Enjoy the fact that he's too good for you females that drool over those movies. Sorry, but the books and movies were bad.
Aly from OKLAHOMA!!!!!!!!!!
I knew...he is hot and I know a lot guys that thinks so as well!
"Get a clue. Anyone who has seen an interview with Rob knows he makes these kind of hyperbolic statements all the time. Then he and his Britpack friends sit around laughing their heads off at the idiotic American reactions."
Sounds about right.
Oh, and I think Details is pretty pleased by the hubbub too.
The guy did not say he was allergic to women or a relationship. He was alluding to the fact that models are treated by most of the public as a piece of meat or merchandise. It is refreshing to read that a young adult male felt uncomfortable doing this and smart enough to recognize we do reduce these women to only vaginas. He stated the truth and you are crucifying him for it. Reading your comments tells me that is what you want. If he wants to make a living in his field he has to do it but he does not have to like it.
Don't care what he is allergic to.... He is still a hottie!!
What vitrol by many responders. I see the humor in what he said. Many of you are taking it literally. This guy is so opposite of John Mayer it isn't funny. He's keeping his private life quiet, is very intelligent and very classy. He played a vampire, he isn't one. He also played Cedrick in Harry Potter but I doubt he's a wizard either. People need to distinguish roles from reality. He's a 23 year old kid who has been thrust into the spotlight, is very uncomfortable with it but isn't selling out to the media. I like him and I'm not some silly teenager but a 59 year old grandmother
Shame on CNN for taking 3 lines from a 6page interview just to skew the entire thing. The whole interview was weird and hysterically funny!
I feel that way sometimes when they won't stop talking about anything but shopping, getting their nails done & marriage.
He's got a flat face, bushy eye brows, a bulbous nose, he's also a bit crosseyed and think he is this brooding young sex God....NOT! he is just vapid and gay.
allergic to vag-gi-gi's? he must like ding dongs then. or maybe he likes dogs, wink wink...
I hope he's not allergic to peanut butter. Then him and his dog might not be best friends anymore!
I think that article is hilarious. I can totally relate...as I love my animals more than I love penis.
Well he's got you all talking about him, doesn't he? Brilliant!!!!
And for all of those 'hanging on to the illusion' debating what 'allergic' means, read the article....he supposedly also said he 'hates vaginas'. Pretty clear, that.
These comments are moderated??? Wow. I'm surprised, given the number of blatant references to oral sex, bestiality, and genitalia. That being said, I find it odd that people are more flipped out about whether or not this guy is gay than about his obvious affection for being drunk and a little stupid. Who cares? Half of Hollywood is gay, the public just doesn't know it, mostly because they'd rather stick their heads in the sand and pretend it isn't so.
This guy understands that the legion of stupid housewives and teens who loooooove their sparkly vampire honestly don't care what he says. If he were gay, they'd still run after him because he's Edward, the brooding, abusive yet sparkle-tastic vampire boyfriend!
He's their "sweet, darling Edward". I'm glad to see him mocking them and mocking the vapidity of the Twilight series.
Those men are developed by the cold female interactions they've known their entire life. You may think it's funny or a lazy lifestyle choice, but it's actually a sad statement on how they've been treated (or not) their entire lives.
But back on topic, this is not one of those incidences. This is simply a gay male expressing his views on "icky VGs"... much different.
Way to go Robert . . . . . . confuse everyone else. Induce public discussion. Be fearless in what you say. Fear not criticisms, like so many celebrities . . . pose with naked women (you think any other famous celebrities can do whatever you just did and say?) . . . then smile ear to ear and laugh out loud!!!! Way to go Robert!!!!!!! No wonder you are a sensation!
......the comment wasn't meant to be taken literally......you are supposed to read between the lines....now, i hope i dont have to explain this comment.
He has a cutting sense of humor that is frequently self-deprecating. Give him a break. If you had genitalia shoved in your face for commercial purposes in a non-private, non-sexual setting, you might be somewhat discombobulated yourself.
Allergic to vagina!? Must like sausage then! Nervous around naked women!? Whats WRONG with you guys? Can't speak for anyone else but to OD on that much beauty and the object of every healthy mans desire is more than mind boggleing enough!
Lazy-eyed candy ass.
He's probably just a young, rich and famous kid who overindulges with various self-medicating chemicals, and tries to say something off the cuff, tongue in cheek, and makes a fool of himself. Party Animal. Funny thing is, he probably doesn't care what any of us think about what he says, however stupid he may sound.
You can love your dog, just don't LOVE your dog.
Honestly, why so much hatred for the guy? I think he is an incredible person inside and out. I am in my 30s so you cannot blame it on teenage lust. If you read the whole article his statements make sense and if you have ever watched interviews with him you will know that he has a very sarcastic sense of humor. Unfortunately not enough people in this country understand that kind of humor. I think he is hilarious and this interview was truly honest and refreshing.
I have an alergy to Vagina too. Its called Homosexuality, and Benadryl won't help with that.
Thought the article was fine. Didn't find anything to object to at all. The worst thing I find is that not everyone is reading the entire article or missing a bit of sarcasm by Mr. Pattinson. I think the elephant story is wonderful. I know that if I had the same opportunity to actually interact with an elephant, other than feeding peanuts in a zoo, I would probably remember it for a very long time too. And here is where I read between the lines; maybe he was relishing the thought of being cast in Water For Elephants and having the chance to work with these amazing creatures on a daily basis. That is as far as I go with guessing.
Finally! I thought I as the only one who thought his hair looked like Jane Fonda's did in her 80's exercise videos. Puffier and puffier with every shoot!
HAHAHA people get so wound up about stupid things. Chill out folks. Vagina is gross, all he did was state the obvious.
Oh puhleeeese! Can't you people take a joke!?
Anyone who needs a laugh today should read this article. From the actual article to the discusion thread – it's full of awesome! Made me lol several times.
Speaking for men this "nobody" doesn't count. Any female fans attracted to him should see a shrink. Pattinson is another "hearthrob" who does nothing to deserve his celebrity. I hope his 15 minutes of fame are over.
Allergic to vagina?? What the heck does that mean? Is he gay or is he still a little boy inside? Some of these Hollywood people are just plain wierd!!
This guy is naive. The porn business was run by the mob in the 80's. The last time I checked the mob wasn't sweet. So if you hate vagina's does that mean you like cock?
I actually think this is hilarious. I like Robert. He's not crazy about having legions of teeny boppers as fans and the hoopla gets to him. No wonder he loves the dog, he knows the dog won't sell his story to the tabloids. He's kind of a quirky private person with an odd sense of humor and, yes a tendency to blurt out what he's thinking whether it's appropriate or not. I prefer that over the over-sanitized celebrity we normally get where everything comes through a PR person. If you've ever seen his lesser-known films, you'd get it. Also – don't care if he's straight, gay or bi – none of my business. And to clarify – I'm not an overly big fan of his to start with and I don't really like Twilight. I actually prefer him in his other films like How to Be.
....he didn't say whether his dog was male or female!
Any man who says hes allergic to vagina is gay! I dont care how long your between a womans legs and close to it, you dont get sick of it or allergic! Claiming that he was better off hung over to be able to " deal with it " is the stupidist thing I think I've heard. This guy is an idiot! Maybe hes mad because some woman told him shes allergic to his penis!
It sound like he wants to do it with his dog. Sounds like One dog to another.
He's been in the habit lately of saying things to make him appear as repulsive as possible, on purpose, his last ditch attempt to not be the biggest teen heartthrob of the moment. Duh!
i read the stupid article and I do not see the big deal.
CNN shame on you to post small outtake from interview and intentionally open it for misinterpretation and hatefull bashing of young actor whose only fault was his early success.
These celebrities will just say ANTYHING nowadays.
Im actually quite pleased to see so many 12 year olds reading a news website..... I understand you "get him"....but hes not a real vampire... hes a drugged up, drunken, greaseball who likes penis. Mayby you should go drool over the new olympian movie kid now.....
Dude, REALLY? Grow up!
Get a clue. Anyone who has seen an interview with Rob knows he makes these kind of hyperbolic statements all the time. Then he and his Britpack friends sit around laughing their heads off at the idiotic American reactions.
For those reacting negatively and accusing Pattinson of being gay, please do yourselves a favor, and scroll up to the response by JENNA.
Remember that he is a British actor, and file this under lost in translation.
wow sounds like some people have a problem. he is a young guy. he is just doing what most 21-25 year old guys do... drink. and like other people said, if you were stuck with a bunch of naked women all day, that would make anyone uncomfortable. doesn't mean that makes him gay. and if some of you have a problem with Robert Pattinson as an actor or as a person then why are you reading up on the latest dish about him? I totally agree with female, over 40!
Wow...we finally have an actor that is not obsessed with having sex 24/7 with anything that walks around with a vagina and automatically he is gay! Shows how shallow this world has become. I give credit to Rob Pattinson for freely saying he is uncomfortable when he has to lay around naked vaginas for 12 hours! If the guy were to say he loves vaginas and can't get enough of them then you all would critique him by saying he is a male whore! Rob is a great actor and is more about the art of films rather than the sex you get for being in films. Rob thank you for finally being a true actor!
this guy is too greasy for the media. i dont want to buy a magazine with this guy on it talking about allergic to vaginas. im allergic to him now.
how is he considered as a heartthrob?
ahhhhhhhhh go ahead ROBERT, have fun with us! I totally get you!
Jeez, it's almost as if no one here has said or done anything stupid themselves?
First, who is Robert Pattinson?
Second, I've heard of allergies to pussycats, but . . .
EDITORS: You don't edit the name of the Pussycat Dolls.
Protest much, Elizabeth??
Pretty sad that you feel the need to go anti-RP, in defense of general vagina... you can't just let him be gay? You really have to take personal offense that he wants nothing to do with your #@&%?...
Before posting lame comments ... read interview entirely. CNN to get hits posted just small extract taken out of context. Guy was on 12 hour photoshoot with exposed b o o b s and vajjjines of models he never seen before all around him and he just expressed his emotion at a time. Oh, and Elizabeth who cares if you are attracted to him, he definitely doesn't. People with one-dimensional mind will pull just one sentence from entire interview and enjoy crucifying person whom they don't know, never seen and will never see in their lives. Interview was hilarious with dry, english sense of humor, but of course it's too much for suburban housewives.
H should just man up and come out of the closet!
What is so news worthy about some dork actor and his fear of a vagina? NOTHING AT ALL. Oh wait, there a throngs of young screaming young women who have to know all of this drivel.
Shame on CNN for even falling for such a insipid worthless piece of news.
He only thinks he's allergic because he hasn't met my vagina yet-he's sexy, funny, and beautiful-let's not forget 23--a baby still!
Jenna, that makes sense NOW that you've explained how you took it to mean, but in my experience, when someone says they are "allergic" to something, it's because they are saying they want to stay away from it. If you are allergic to bees, for example, you don't go hitting a beehive with a stick, do you? No, you avoid it. Hence, the contextual understanding that when he said he was allergic, he meant that he wanted to avoid it.
Pale, skinny, greasy, self absorbed, He looks and acts like most of the new young male stars. They all look pre-pubescent or gay. Most of them don't act, they are just pretending as kids wil do. Taylor Lautner is 18 years old!! He's not a leading man, he is a teenager for God's sake. Well, I guess it shows you that Tween's and Teens spend the money and Hollywood goes with the money. Too much money, too much fame, too much before they even hit 30 and most of them will be forgotten before they are 30. Then we have the other 2, Zac and Chase? I mean come on, how pretty are they!!
Most of these guys are still dealing with acne and their voices changing! WHERE ARE THE REAL MEN????????? We can only hope Hollywood doesn't think Jake Gyllenhaal is over the hill.
guys a weirdo....but I found it cool he likes his dog that much, hopefully not too much though
hey jenna... maybe YOU should read the article again. "I really hate vaginas" doesn't leave a whole lot of room for interpretation.
So, is he gay or just stupid?
Adults over 18 (he hehe he ) are soooooo funny. At least we can discuss articles and things among ourselves and argue about them then make judgment properly because it is expected of us. I think he used the word ALLERGIC in line with the type of magazine he is interviewing with. Robert is quite intelligent and fearless in what he says and we like that about him. . . I am sure given the type of photos floating around in connection with that interview, I agree with two or three people here that HE IS ALLERGIC means like he has strong reaction to it. But the use of the other word (V) is fitting for the magazine. I don't expect him to talk to us in Teen Magazines like that. He has other fans too, we know. And he is outgrowing us . . . real fast.
does he hate vaginas because he doesn't know what to do with them? or is he gay? or was he just intimidated by all the naked girls? anyway, if i did a photoshoot with a bunch of attractive naked men, I would be LOVIN it!!!!!!
Chris... seriously? "There are lots of guys who don't like to have their face in vagina but it doesn't make them not like having sex or a sensual relationship with a woman. Sheesh."
I hope those guys you are referring to don't like having oral sex performed on them either. I find it astounding how many guys I have met in the past few years, who won't go "south of the border" for their wife, but still expect her to take care of him. Have you ever heard of returning the favor?
And frankly, I don't see how a guy can claim he loves women, and likes having sex with a woman, but won't get his face in it. What are you afraid of?
Vagina's are out to get you especially with all that small talk they do, especially if you have to be around them for a few hours or more, Seriously, I thought Robert was straight male, If he's not comfortable with a vagina that means he's not comfortable with any woman period. Sorry to say that if your that allergic to vaginas you need to be terrifed of penis'
@ Lori, who said:
"So sad he is only 23 and a historian of pornography."
Obviously you don't understand us males...at 16, I was already a seasoned expert of pornography!
I side with Melissa. I heard that joke before – oddly enough from a couple of English guys. (Studing a year abroad in America).
So maybe RP was simply saying it was a weird experince to be around naked women he didn't know for 12 hours and having a harding on?
I had an English Professor, as in a citizen from Britian, who would go on and on about bird watching with his collegues. Later, I found out "bird" meant "chicks" as in females.
I suspect in an English mag with English readers they would interpret it different from American.
I sure hope his show ends soon so he can head back to whatever planet he came from...I am really disappointed that he is even making money of anyone that places him in the position he is in now...like anyone really wants to hear what he has to say about his experiences...
Sounds like a porn addict that does not know what to do with a real woman. Believe me, I have met them and older than this guy is too.
A freudian slip, and maybe a coming out of the gay closet in the not so distant future? An odd remark for a straight man. This sounds like a young man having conflict with his sexual identity and preference.
Robert won't be the first male teeny bopper heart throb to shock and awe fans when its revealed he prefers men.
So if he's allergic to "vagina" what statement is he trying to allude to?
Robert and I get along really really well.
Is this suppose to be "John Mayer" funny. He is no longer sparkly for me.
I always thought vaginas were hypo-allergenic. Anytime I've come up- close and personal with one I have never had a bad reaction such as itching, sneezing or a runny nose.
Just saying..... I think he is trying to say that it is very awkward, to say the least to be in a photo shoot with a variety of naked women, for whatever reason. Sort of putting him in a spot to be something he is not. Maybe he likes guys, his dog, whatever...... (That's just hoping for some sort of sordid ending for his statement), maybe he just would prefer to not go there.....Not everyone is as hedonistic as the world wants to push us to be.... Geesh!! It's O.K. for a young, famous person to say, I'm uncomfotable with this situation, however they can manage to put it out there.
These post shows that people don't know how to read and don't understand the English the language. When you are allergic to something – you swell, you reddens, you feel hot, you have a strong reaction to it so that weird things happen to your body - THAT's what the "I am allergic . . . ." means. These posts really show that people don't read. They just react. That is why our media writes superficially.
This guys is even gay – He sounds like he's been banging his dog – which explains his 'stoned' idiotic remarks on his "vagina allergy".
Either this is an outrageous media-stunt, or his way of justifying his obsession with 'abnormal sexual relations' and his porn addiction ...
He should get the number of Tiger's therapist 'cause this boy needs help – serious help!
Robert Pattison's publicist should buy a big roll of duct tape, because every time he opens his mouth, stupid falls out of it.
Pay attention to what he said: he thinks PORN is EVERYWHERE.
He's making a societal comment.
It's actually quite deep. He's a classy guy. He doesn't give it up so easily.
Either that, or he's gay. Which is fine with me too hahaha!!!
There are dozens to hundreds of overexposed 20-somethings being made famous by Hollywood while partying too much and not all that interested yet in doing responsible things with their money and their time and he's only one of them. He's no more or less a product of the machine than any of the rest of them, and I have no greater ill will toward him for being a mildly self-destructive oddball than I would toward one of my own friends for the same behavior. I know the legions of screaming teenagers, present at every mall appearance he is required to make, do seem to freak him out a little, and having been in the spotlight for several years now doesn't seem to have been very good for his social development. But it's probably better that he's a shy drunk, whittling away his evenings on vintage internet porn, than a violent drunk, ending each relationship with a domestic abuse charge and a jail stint. I just hope that when (if) the time comes that he wants to either start a family or devote his free time to some positive social cause, he hasn't completely pissed away his money or his health.
Come on people. Why does his statement have to make him gay? There are lots of guys who don't like to have their face in vagina but it doesn't make them not like having sex or a sensual relationship with a woman. Sheesh.
CNN... Really? This is the crap you've resorted to reporting on? A drunk D-list actor makes a derogatory comment about genitalia. I'm surprised you didn't find a way to source TMZ or Twitter on this story like you usually do. No wonder nobody respects you anymore. Sad.
Why are all the women offended – he is 23 and figuring out how to be a super star – who cares what he says. He has women falling all over him all the time and grabbing at him – he is probably pretty turned off by women at this point. Makes perfect sense to me
He looks like a greasy high school stoner who doesnt deserve the attention or appreciation of any female on this planet. get a haircut, think about washing it regularly like most normal people do, and find a boyfriend.
If that constituted a coming-out statement, it was the weirdest, unsexiest and most awkward coming-out ever.
Between his ugly mug and the woman he hangs with, Kristin, they both are so full of themselves that they think they don't need to do anything with their hair and they can just look like they just got out of bed and still be adored. Ick. Maybe I'm too old – but I find this a hideous couple of people and don't get why every store i go in they have their homely faces on things. I think I am getting hives just thinking about it....
I can't wait for this "cult following" to die...in like 6 months....and he will have all the time in the world then to cultivate his 'porn historian' role and maybe write a book about it.
Allergic to vaginas, and rightfully so! Watch it! Those messy things have teeth!
He looks like a foot.
You would think he'd be more attracted to vagina (at least once a month) considering he's a vampire and all...
You're all so funny. You either are insulted by his comment or you believe it literally and assume his sexual preference! Maybe he was just being silly? If you were a fan, you could see that he tends to do that! But it's on deaf ears!
I take it he doesn't like seafood.
He looks like a 23-year-old Gary Busey.
I second that Lori. His knowledge of porn is weird.
He needs to wax those eyebrows – way too out of control.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Please tell me you knew he is gay. Not that there is anything wrong with that!!!!!!!!!!
Drinking? Drunk? Hungover? YES. And so was I in my 20's – Thank GOD no one was recording every silly comment/joke/thought I said out loud. Let the guy live. He'll move past this phase – as almost everyone does. He's young, good looking, talented and having FUN.
Maybe he's doing the dog. He did say his relationship with his dog is ridiculous.
I'm 34 and I think he's kind of a cutie (in certain pics, anyway), but that said...what the heck is he talking about? I'll admit, that photo shoot was really strange, but it WAS Details...
If that was a joke, Melissa, I've never heard it.
Oh Elizabeth....get a clue and take a look at what is hot in holywood.....
Is this his way of coming out?
AT 67 – I am way to old to even try to understand this. what I do see is yet again, a star with legions of young followers who think he is wonderful, feeling no sense of responsibility to his young audience.
I think Robert Pattinson should be introduced to John Mayer....based on the terrible quotes from both these guys it seems they would get along great.
Last year they had a publicist with him everywhere watching what he'd say. Now we know why. Seriously when Monty Python came to America we all thought "?" nothing has changed, this is british humor at it most base and is the opposite of every comment ever made about Rob by others to date. So anyone go with the idea that he was uncomfortable and said stupid things. Like anyone else would.
There isn't a celebrity out there who doesn't have at least one interview they regret. this might be his.
No surprises, we all know he drinks so maybe he did before, during and a lot after the interview. wouldn't anyone, he gets set up all the time. He's no saint but throw in his twisted sense of humor and it makes some kind of comical sense.
I saw this cat on a talk show – do not believe anything he says.
Love you response, Elizabeth. And have to agree with others that he looks stoned all the time. We have also learned now that he looks at too much porn...decades of porn in fact.
I am so glad I am not the only one who thinks this guy is weird and unattractive. At 23 he is already on a downward spiral with his life and too stupid to know it. Plus, whoever did this interview, you stink too. This article is useless. It accomplished only one thing, it made a lot of people realize just how stupid people can be.
The pasty-faced idiot has as much class as a door knob! I bet every one of those models was relieved when that shoot was over. From the way he always looks in pictures, the guy probably needs to bathe as well as groom. Hang out the garlic rings to keep this weirdo away!
well that's a different way of doing it don't you think? He's the first man to come out of the closet by claiming an allergy to female naughty bits. I just knew he was gay the first time I saw him do an interview didn't seem straight. Now I know he can't be; a straight man would take benadryl to compensate for any reactions. Not that there is anything wrong with being gay just wretched to pretend to be straight for a job.
Wow the amount of vitrol here is pretty astounding. Would you rather he said that he's addicted to vaginas instead?
He's an actor in a movie that gets a lot of media attention from girls looking for their generation's teen idol or what ever. Its a part of his job now, his personal preference really dosen't matter all that much.
When he says "allergic" he's making a reference to "swelling" – it's an old joke. Not the first time I've ever heard it.
Oh, and Elizabeth – get real. I'm almost 40 – I'm not allergice to Rob Pattinson by a long shot – he's a hottie.
Reading that interview made my vagina curl up and hide and I don't even have one!!
Considering that the majority of his fans are either youthful people with vaginas, or youthful people who wish they had a vagina; this quote was probably not the best thing for his career.
the interview was for DETAIL MAGAZINE, the interviews for that magazine are that blatant – – it is encouraged by interviewers. he's "allergic" to vagina because anyone whom he'll sleep with will cash in on it . . . thus he is "allergic" to it. plus anything robert pattinson says is intentionally funny and vague.
Yeah, I'm sure Liz.
Yeesh. What an oddjob.
That's so funny. I knew he was gay. Instead of saying "I have an allergy to vagina" he should just say "I prefer penis". I'm sure that the studio behind the Twilight movies is trying their best to "Rock Hudson" him and find him a beard somewhere in order to keep the little girls running to the theaters.
This has got to be the weirdest interview ever conducted. When he woke up the next morning he had to have one of those, 'oh s**t' moments...that said, I think I like him more for being completely strange. But that's just me.
Hey, Robert Pattinson: we really hate pale, lame men.
Good one Elizabeth..!!! He is definitely NOT ATTRACTIVE and not someone I would consider an "Actor"..
He ALWAYS looks stoned and he talks like a moron.
@Elizabeth ~ Have to agree...Thanks for the giggle
What an idiot.
So he's gay then?
Silly little boy. Hugh Jackman is much sexier and appealing not to mention a better actor.
Nicely said, Elizabeth.
He makes my vagina want to curl up and hide. I don't see the appeal. He's too greasy.
And he looks a tad slow, you know what I mean?
So sad he is only 23 and a historian of pornography.
Can you blame a guy at 23 to be afraid of vaginas? Especially when you've got mobs of girls, AND ladies throwing themselves at him. It seems most celebs these days feel they have more of a connection with thier pets than humans and can you blame them? At least you know your pet won't stab in you in the back and leak all your embarassing and juicey details out to the press.
I didnt realize he was gay. I thought he was dating the Twilight girl...
Being around naked models for hours on a set would make a lot of guys a little uncomfortable. How do you make small talk with naked women?
I'm sure he tried hard to maintain eye contact...LOL
...I honestly don't know what to say after reading this article.
Interesting, Elizabeth Ashwood, that you feel that strongly about it.
This guy is already showing the effects of way too much alcohol consumption. He is ruining his looks with booze. In a couple of years no one will really give a rip what he prefers in the sack or out of it.
OK why doesn't he just come and say what he "really" wants!!!
amen to that Elizabeth! this guy needs to crawl back under the rock that he came out from under....or take a shower and comb that disgusting mop of hair....I'm definitely allergic to him.
Little does this pretentious little dork know, most vagina (the grown-up variety that isn't 13 and brainwashed by media) is likely allergic to him.
