In our annual TIME 100 issue we name the people who most affect our world.
ROBERT PATTINSON by Chris Weitz (director of New Moon)
I have to be careful about what I write here because it will be tweeted the moment TIME hits the stands. And if I say something bad about Rob Pattinson, Im dead meat. That’s the devotion the Twilight films inspire. Its certainly not how he planned it. And though I am continually impressed by the aplomb with which he handles the hysteria, I occasionally think he would take it all back if given the chance. Because essentially, Rob, 23, is a reserved, bookish sort of specimen, a guy who’d rather spend the night at the corner table in the pub with friends — a bit of a weirdo, frankly, in the best sense.
So how to write about someone who seems to answer Freud’s rhetorical question, What do women want? Perhaps its just worth pointing out that itd be fun to have a beer with him even if he weren’t Edward Cullen. That we haven’t seen a tenth of what he can do onscreen. And that important things, beyond the veil of Hollywood, occupy his time too — music, conversation, ideas, a sense of the absurd. Which, maybe, explains why he never gets to my e-mails. I love you, Rob! Call me!
Hey Rob, call me too! Haha.

Was there any doubt that he wouldnt?! ;]
His pale, otherworldly complexion may make girls swoon, but the British heartthrob, 23, says looking the part of a lovesick vampire in the Twilight series isnt quite as thrilling: Having that makeup put on every single day, as soon as you get it taken off its like, Oh, you do look normal. You look healthy now. .
