Twilight actor Robert Pattinson has reportedly signed up to become a member of the prestigious London Library in Piccadilly.
The 25-year-old is said to have been burying his head in books in the library for hours at a time.
A source told British newspaper The Mail On Sunday: ‘Robert decided he’d been spending too much time lying about smoking, watching movies and munching junk food.
‘He wants to expand his mind. He’s splashed out £18,500 for a lifetime membership there. Hugh Grant is also signed up.’
Pop superstar Britney Spears has become the latest celebrity to be immortalised in a comic book.
The Toxic hitmaker’s rise to stardom and highly publicised private life has been turned into a series of illustrations by heads at Bluewater Productions Inc., who recently turned Lindsay Lohan’s woes into a story.
Other stars who have been given the comic book treatment by the firm include Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, as well as Lady Gaga.
Writer Patrick McCray says, “She is far more complicated than most people realize. No matter what preconceptions you have about her, there will always be more layers and surprises. Beyond the performer, there is a real human being there, struggling for a real life, struggling to connect with her art, and struggling to be understood.”
The 32-page comic is due for release on Wednesday (11May11).
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have fuelled ongoing rumours they are secretly dating after they were photographed in an intimate clinch in New York on Sunday night (April 17).
The actor was in town for the official screening of Water For Elephants, his new movie with Reese Witherspoon, and after he walked the red carpet alone, Pattinson was spotted leaving a post-premiere party with his Twilight co-star Stewart.
The actress was seen taking Pattinson’s arm as they stepped into a waiting car together, and a subsequent snap appears to show them leaning in for a kiss.
The pair, who play onscreen lovers in the popular vampire franchise, has long been rumoured to be a real life couple, but both have denied the dating speculation.
