Kristen Stewart has reportedly bought Robert Pattinson a $80,000 piano.
The 21-year-old actress – who plays Robert’s onscreen wife in the ‘Twilight Saga’ – has apparently treated her man to the instrument to mark their third anniversary.
A source said: ‘Kristen wanted to get a huge surprise for Rob for their anniversary later this month.
‘Robert’s been playing the piano his whole life and admits it’s the perfect escape for him when the showbiz world, paparazzi and fans get too much. Playing the piano is Rob’s therapy when he needs to be alone, to think, to get emotional and creative.
‘He’s really musical and loves to sing as well.
‘Kristen has been searching around specialized, high-end piano shops in Los Angeles. She’s been talking to top musicians about the best piano for months. Robert has always wanted a Steinway grand, so that’s what she opted for.
‘She blew $80,000, knowing that he’d love it.’
The ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ star is believed to have already splashed out on three vintage guitars for her music-mad 25-year-old boyfriend.
Talking to the Daily Star newspaper, the insider added: ‘He played classical guitar from the age of five, for about eight years.’
I have a weird relationship with fame. It’s hard to live sometimes but I don’t want to complain. People are nice with me and I think it comes with the way you handle things.
For example, I think it’s totally different from what Rob (Pattinson) lives. He’s a guy I like a lot – and no I do not have his cell phone number, I say this because it’s always the first thing people ask me. He’s a sex symbol. He’s sexy and just need to do his brooding look for girls to fall. He has the perfect height to seduce girls, I’m the total opposite (laughs). He might be charming and cute, wild and sexy .. I do not have this kind of status, just look at pictures in the press. When we’re put side by side, I look a little silly or I make faces whereas Rob always looks like a ladies’ man. Therefore it doesn’t help me when it comes to the ladies. Maybe because now that they grew up with me they consider me more like a big brother than a potential boyfriend.
Philip Glenister is not given to musing about his work. He’s a jobbing actor – or at least that’s what he’d have you believe. When asked what made him commit to playing Charles Forestier, a journalist in 19th-century Paris in new film Bel Ami he quips, ‘I was free on a Tuesday.’
But much about Philip is a front. Behind the gruff exterior – which he used to great effect as the brash DCI Gene Hunt in Life On Mars and its sequel Ashes To Ashes – is not quite a softie, but certainly someone who cares about his craft and works hard. He just likes to joke about it.
I ask him whether he had any journalists in mind when playing Forestier, the man who gives Robert Pattinson’s caddish character Georges Duroy his big break. ‘I based it on Piers Morgan,’ he says with a cackle.
Forestier and his wife, Madeleine, played by Uma Thurman, take Duroy under their wing, and she advises him the best way to get on in Paris is via the city’s most influential wives. Duroy embarks on some torrid affairs and steamy bedroom scenes as he scales the social ladder.
So how was it working with such impressive actors on the risqué period drama? Word is, Uma can be temperamental. ‘She’s bonkers,’ he jokes. And then there was Robert, one of the hottest actors in the world thanks to his role in the Twilight films. ‘We were filming at a house in Hertfordshire adjoining a school. The pupils got wind of it and started chanting, “Robert, Robert”. We had to threaten them with cattle prods!’
HollywoodLife, which never misses a chance to make up controversy about Robert Pattinson, is at it again.
The webloid’s new headline declares, “Robert Pattinson Vs. Taylor Lautner: Did Rob Diss Taylor’s Acting?”
“Is there a real-life ‘Breaking Dawn’ rivalry brewing?” asks the story’s first line, going on to tease the “inflammatory comment” that supposedly serves as “the first stone in a new war of words between the two hunks!”
Wow, Pattinson must have really said something nasty about his Twilight co-star for HollywoodLife to play it up like this, right?
The site refers to an (alleged) Reveal magazine interview in which Pattinson (allegedly) says, “I’d have to make a lifestyle change if I wanted to do shirtless acting. But it seems like every single actor in the world is doing a ‘Taylor Lautner’ scene – it’s crazy.”
Pattinson is said to continue, “They have a scene where they walk out with like a 12-pack. It’s like, ‘Really? You’re playing a normal guy! That doesn’t make any sense.’ But that’s a prerequisite of being an actor. Or you can get fat!”
For those of you waiting for the “inflammatory comment” HollywoodLife promised… um, apparently, that was it.
Pattinson pointed out the silliness of actors who are NOT Taylor Lautner being ripped and shirtless for roles that do NOT require being ripped and shirtless… and somehow HollywoodLife interpreted this to be a “diss” of Lautner.
He said absolutely nothing about Lautner or Lautner’s acting.
We’re not sure whether this is mostly a result of HollywoodLife’s reading comprehension problem or the site’s desire to create feuds, but the entire mess is yet more sloppy work from a webloid intent on creating “news,” not accurately reporting it.
During his visit to Brazil to promote the comedy War is War!, Reese Witherspoon took the opportunity to talk about the actor Robert Pattinson, who appeared opposite the drama Water for Elephants.
In the movie, Twilight star plays a veterinary student who joins a circus at the beginning of last century.
Reese now lives the character Marlena, the star of the circus, bride of an animal trainer.
- He’s great. And my God, how beautiful!
The actress Pattinson praised the effort to reconcile two jobs at the same time.
- What surprised me was his dedication. He filmed the entire weekend, then spent the week with Twilight, then the other weekend had more to write, and then more Twilight … And yes it had a lightness, humility. And he is very grateful for everything that is living.
