LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It seems that everyone has an opinion of Charlie Sheen – even “Twilight Saga” star Robert Pattinson.
In the new issue of Vanity Fair, Hollywood’s hottest vampire opens up about his adoration of the embattled sitcom star.
“I like crazy people who don’t give a [expletive],” Pattinson told the mag of Sheen in its new issue, for which he appears on the cover holding an alligator over his shoulders.
In fact, you can count Pattinson among the millions of viewers tuning in to “Two and a Half Men” most nights, even in syndication.
“I never change the channel in my trailer. I just watch reruns of ‘House of Payne’ and ‘Two and a Half Men,’” he added, noting that while he enjoys the show, it’s not his top TV choice.
“I love ‘Cops’ — I think it’s my favorite TV show,” he laughed. “God, I sound like such a loser.”
Of course, Charlie Sheen and “Cops” aren’t the only things Pattinson is fond of in his personal life – he’s also pretty sweet on his “Twilight” leading lady, Kristen Stewart.
“She’s cool. Even before I knew her I thought she was a really good actress. Like, I saw ‘Into the Wild,’ and I thought she was really good in that,” Pattinson admitted. “I still think there are very few girls in her class that are as good as she is.”
While love is never easy, dating in the Hollywood spotlight is a whole other story, the actor admitted.
“It’s just very traumatic,” Pattinson told the mag of the strain put on the couple’s relationship by the constant public eye. “When this is over, the media will lose interest. There’ll be nothing to say. It won’t fit into a headline anymore. It won’t fit into a template.”
Of course, Pattinson understands the attention comes with the territory – and he’s OK with that.
“There’s nothing you can do about it. That’s the way it is,” he continued of his “Twilight” uber-fame. “But it is weird being part of that, kind of representing something you don’t particularly like. God, I just really head-butted it.”
“This thing with everyone knowing you, it’s weird, because people have this one-sided relationship where they look at your picture and feel they know you more than someone they actually know,” he concluded. “I don’t really know myself that well.”
