Robert Pattinson basically calls Twilight fans a bunch of basement-dwelling losers

Robert Pattinson on the set of Maps To The Stars in L.A. (8/21)

I’ll tell you what, I’m beginning to really like this Robert Pattinson kid. If he ever calls Kristen Stewart a dirty cunt, I will officially have a full-blown man crush on him. He told Belfast Telegraph earlier this week:

“The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers. Most of them are older. Twilight has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one. And in an intense way that has never existed before,” he shared. “Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight. Day and night. So actually really exciting – at least up to the point when I became part of that phenomenon.”

Man crush aside, I guess Robert is admitting that his career is over, because without the Twilight creeps, he’s finished in movies (and you’ll have to trust me when I tell you that gay porn doesn’t count . . . I heard). I totally agree that his fans are probably middle-aged basement masturbators who probably shouldn’t be around teens anyway, but whose fault is that? Bob chose to play his character “that way.” Let’s just call those ridiculous pseudo-vampire films for what they are: Twinks vs. Bears, a Love Story. If Bobby wanted young chicks to enjoy his films, then he shouldn’t have had such intense stare downs with that well muscled wolfman-boy.
