Robert Pattinson seems to be finally opening up about his breakup with his “The Twilight Saga” costar and longtime girlfriend Kristen Stewart. Though he never names her outright, Pattinson gives new insights in a new interview that seem to explain why he finally called it quits with Stewart back in May.
“I don’t ever feel the need to forgive or expect people to be. I judge people on their actions. I don’t really care if it’s wrong or right, I give them the benefit of the doubt. If they do something I can’t be bothered to deal with, I just cut them out,” Pattinson admits in the Sept. 15 issue of Australia’s Sunday Style (via Gossip Cop).
Pattinson also makes a comment that might explain why Stewart made such an over-the-top apology to him after she was caught cheating with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders. “I’m quite sensitive, and I do like a bit of grand gesturing, but that’s just my ego,” he explains. “I like to give people presents and I think of myself as the best gift giver, but only because I get stuff for myself and then make it work for the other person.”
Beyond his personal life, Pattinson says that the pressures of being in the spotlight have affected him mental state. He admits to “body dysmorphia” and “overall tremendous anxiety,” and says he is a “nut case” leading up to red carpets. But he’s happy his “Twilight” days are behind him, because now he can be seen as an actor instead of a heartthrob.
“I’m trying to get out of being perceived as really young and I think doing [Dior] helps along those lines. I’m 27 now and I can feel people looking at me differently,” Pattinson says. “It’s a weird year. With ‘Twilight’ ending and other films I’ve done, like Cosmopolis, I suddenly feel like I’m being treated like an actual actor.”
He also states, “I suppose it’s because of these tremendous insecurities that I never found a way to become egotistical. I don’t have a sixpack and I hate going to the gym. I’ve been like that my whole life. I never want to take my shirt off. I’d prefer to get drunk.”
