Robert Pattinson’s Team Feels Actor Needs Wake Up Call

Robert Pattinson has been urged to quit his womanizing ways.

The ‘Twilight’ hunk’s managerial team have warned him to calm down his partying antics and focus on his career as they fear he could risk tarnishing his successful name if he doesn’t put a stop to his troublesome behavior.

A source told RadarOnline: “Rob’s team felt he needed a wake up call [and] that now is the time to get extremely serious about his career, even if that means quitting the womanizing and music making that have defined his life in Los Angeles so far.

“They really don’t want him throwing this opportunity down the toilet.”

The 27-year-old actor shot to fame in 2008 after landing the role of Edward Cullen in the romantic fantasy film, but his team are worried he’ll sign up to a movie at the end of this year that won’t be as successful, and could play havoc with his future career.

The source explained: “Rob has to pick his next movie before the end of the year, and frankly, everyone is worried he’s going to screw this up.

“There’s this very strong sense from his team that he needs to find a serious movie, like Brad [Pitt] did with ‘Seven’ that pulls him out of the cheesecake territory. He can’t screw this up!”

MTV

It’s official Beavis and Butthead are back! They returned to MTV this week (Oct 27) after a 13 year absence. The animated series Beavis and Butthead proved to be a huge success as 3.3 million people tuned in for the revival of the animated series.

According to Zaptoit, the series performed well with males, who comprised over two-thirds of the audience. The episode saw the duo tackle pop culture references such as Jersey Shore and The Bachelor. However reviews for the episode were mixed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, one critic praised, “it turns out that their brand of blunt but unexpectedly wise snark translates just as well to trashy reality shows as it did to trashy hair metal videos back in the day”, whilst another stated, “by the old measurements, the premiere episode is tepid and distant.” Many fans were more optimistic. Alan Moyer, talking on twitter said, ‘Beavis and Butthead haven’t lost a step’ whilst Stephen Hopkins declared, ‘I think Beavis and Butthead actually got funnier than it was before’. However it wasn’t enough to please everyone: ‘I hate that Beavis and Butthead is back on TV’tweeted another.

Robert Pattinson Goes To Punch Paparazzi

It has been reported that Twilight star Robert Pattinson was close to throwing a punch at a camera-man yesterday when photographed coming out of a meeting at the ICM Agency in Los Angeles.

The photographer, who was stood nearby taking a few shots of the star, was surprised to see the actor get aggressive on sight of his camera.

“Rob already seemed to be in a bad mood as he was leaving ICM and when he saw me, he just snapped,” the photographer told X17.

It would seem that Robert’s friend is the one to thank, as he sucessfully managed to calm the Twilight star.

“I was just standing there, taking his picture, not saying anything, not getting too close and he just went off. He clenched his fist and got ready to hit me, but his friend told him to stop and calmed him down,” the photographer added.

Pictures of the actor were taken at the scene, and needless to say he was not looking his happiest. Wearing black trousers and a black t-shirt, Rob  was snapped marching energetically towards the camera with his right fist already clenched, ready to pounce on the photographer. Robert Pattinson was very moody indeed.

Robert Pattinson Recording Debut album During a Break

The ‘Twilight‘ actor originally considered becoming a musician and is making the most of a break in his schedule by heading to the studio to record his first full-length record.

A source told UsWeekly.com: “Music is his first love! He’s tortured because he avoids it. When he’s sitting around jamming in the studio, it’s his favourite moment of life.”

Another friend added: “Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn’t allow it.

“Now he’s got some weeks to get everything in line before going back to promoting ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’.”

The 25-year-old actor previously recorded two tracks, ‘Never Think’ and ‘Let Me Sign’ for the original ‘Twilight’ soundtrack.

Sources say the sound of the album will be “organic” and use traditional instruments.

The friend added: “The album Rob will make will be guitar based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop. Like stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.”

Robert’s ‘Twilight’ co-star, Jackson Rathbone, has previously praised his ability as a guitarist.

He told how Robert “loves to play the blues. He can hold his own on a guitar. We enjoyed jamming together when we had the time. Very humble and quiet guy.”

Robert has also said he loves playing piano, and as a child hoped he could make a living from it.

He said: “I love the piano. I never really had any aspirations to be an actor when I was young. I wanted to play the piano in a bar, to be the old dude with a whiskey glass.”

Twilight Director Catherine Hardwick Helps Heap Praise On "Unreal" Amanda Seyfried

Amanda Seyfried  in Red Riding Hood movie still.

Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke has heaped praise on her Red Riding Hood star Amanda Seyfried, insisting the Mamma Mia! actress is the perfect addition to any movie.

The moviemaker admits the young star metamorphosed before her very eyes on the set of the new thriller, inspired by the Little Red Riding Hood fable, and she never knew which Seyfried she’d be working with from one day to the next.

Hardwicke coos, “She’s got one of the most incredible faces… Sometimes she’s Angelina Jolie, sometimes she’s a young Michelle Pfeiffer, sometimes she’s an alien, sometimes she’s a 15-year-old Dakota Fanning. She goes through every kind of transformation.

“And she is fierce and beautiful… She’s a wild child. You don’t know what’s going to happen or come out of her mouth, and that’s thrilling.”

And the director admits Seyfried was a pleasure to work with when the cameras weren’t rolling.
She adds, “She’s not a diva… She’s generous, funny, spontaneous, and she doesn’t complain and isn’t a pain in the a** to work with. She’s kind of unreal.”
