“If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours, but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable.” - Robert Pattinson.
I’m not a huge fan of Pattinson, though I have enjoyed the Twilight movies; however, I’m a bigger fan since I read this quote. Additionally, he said, “If you took away publicists and things and people spoke for themselves, then they’d have to be responsible for their words.” I like that. It’s very sensible. That’s why the speeches actors give at awards shows are so terrible – they try to make up the words themselves instead of merely memorizing someone else’s words.
On “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Pattinson revealed that he had recently purchased a car for $2,500 off Craigslist. Get this: the Chevy Silverado pickup truck is over a decade old. “I got a 2001 Silverado. It’s beautiful. Solid car,” Pattinson said, noting, “I buy everything off Craigslist. Every single car that I’ve bought.”
He’s rich, handsome, and thrifty, as well as being a man who admires intelligent women. Hmmmm.
I have to admit, he’s said some fairly stupid things, too, but we’ll save those for another day. For today, we won’t worry about his comments concerning his lack personal hygiene. For today, we’ll just be happy that there is a young, famous, humble guy out there who likes US – the women who read.
Which Austen man should he play? I think he should be a hero, though he has the whole smouldering thing down and would make a wonderful Wickham or Henry Crawford. He’s moody, so Darcy is not out of the question. What do you think?
