Robert Pattinson laughs at tabloids that make up stories about him, but occasionally he’s irked. A recent story claiming that he’d proposed to Kristen Stewart on a windswept beach, he said, made him “look like an idiot.”
Rob’s reaction to so many fake tabloid stories is usually bemusement; he only wishes they could be more creative if they make up facts, which they so often do, he notes.
“Sometimes I look like a fool [if they] invent things,” he said in a recent Q&A with Tu, a Chilean magazine.
“Some time ago I read in a magazine that I was getting married to Kristen,” he said according to a translation of the article.
Robert Pattinson Debunks Tabloid Stories in ‘Tu’
“They explained how I had proposed marriage. Apparently I took [Kristen] to a beach and we were both in flowing robes, and I played a song on my guitar,” he added.
Rob said he asked Kristen if he should proposed to her like that and she flatly said no. “It’s shameful, not only because they invented something but because it also made me look like the biggest idiot in the world,” he laughed.
“Why can they not invent that I proposed in a spaceship or something more fun?”
Tabloids like OK magazine and gossip sites like HollywoodLife were filled with engagement and marriage stories in May and June, typically the months when many weddings take place. HollywoodLife has run more than a dozen Rob and Kristen engagement and wedding stories this year, always citing “sources.” They contain details down to the cake they intend to have.
Most of the stories were published by OK magazine, and HollywoodLife repeated them without question. Ironically, while tabloids were trumpeting their impending marriage, Kirsten was involved in an affair with “Snow White and the Huntsman” Director Rupert Sanders.
Rob also revealed that Kristen kept the wedding ring from the movie as a souvenir, but he wasn’t so lucky. “Kristen kept the wedding ring, but no one gave me anything. My ring is sure going to end in one of those Planet Hollywood restaurants. Maybe it’s already for sale on eBay,” he laughs.
