Robert Pattinson: ‘New Moon Naysayers Annoyed Me’

March 11, 2010

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson reveals in a new interview with Parade for Remember Me that he was stung by some of the more negative reviews for The Twilight Saga: New Moon:

I didn’t like the way New Moon was treated by the critics. I think it was reviewed in the context of just being a big franchise movie. When something is so hyped, inevitably, there is a backlash against it. I think Chris Weitz is an amazing director. I really enjoyed the film. So the naysayers kind of annoyed me.

He also shares an anecdote about working with Pierce Brosnan on Remember Me that he says helped him understand fame a little more:

We went out to dinner in a restaurant full of all these guys who looked like bankers or brokers. They didn’t recognize me, but they recognized Pierce. And he said, ‘Notice those people looking over?’ I’m sitting there getting more and more self-conscious, even though I didn’t realize they weren’t looking at me. Suddenly, Pierce got up and introduced himself to everybody in the restaurant. At first I was like, ‘What are you doing? You’re like completely insane.’ But it worked. Everybody just relaxed and stopped staring and you could tell they were going to go home and say, ‘Pierce is such a nice guy.’
