Robert Pattinson Doesn't Feel the Need to Be Role Model

"I don't feel that I have to be a role model for the fans. That I have to change my way of living in anyway," Robert Pattinson addresses on him being considered as a role model.

Having many fans and being considered as ladies' man, Robert Pattinson insists he doesn't consider himself as a role model or even feel the need to become one. OceanUP cites the British heartthrob as telling Frida magazine, "I don't feel that I have to be a role model for the fans. That I have to change my way of living in anyway."

About his statement, he explains, "It's not like it is for Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, in Harry Potter, who have positive roles. I play a vampire, and I don't think there's many who expect goodness of them." He jokingly adds, "I am supposed to be evil, haha!"

And aside from the glamor of Hollywood, Robert Pattinson claims he likes to spend his time staying at home. "There's just a few people who are worth your time. I don't like talking on the phone plus I'm always moving around and that's a problem. Eh, I don't know, it feels like I'm wasting a lot of my time as it is, and then I would rather stay at home doing some creative than taking a walk with someone just to talk some crap," he tells the magazine.

First of all he does not HAVE to be anything. Role models arenít usually role models by choice, people MAKE them this because they look up to them. If you call someone a role model and then dislike their behaviors then it is YOUR fault for calling them this in the first place. If you look up to someone just because they are popular at the time then thatís a waist of your time. No one is perfect and no one should have to be anything that is different from themselves just because someone else wants to keep thinking they are perfection. NO actor or celebrity should be a role model as no fan or viewer can fully understand why it is that this person they are looking up to acts or behaves they way they do. The behavior is only what you see and there may be reasons behind it that you havenít been through so you canít understand them. TO full look up to your role model you should be able to understand WHY you look up to this person. Just because they are on TV or in a big movie or is famous and rich is NOT a good enough reason to look up to someone. Grow up, get a life and let the celebrities live their as they choose!

Lol at all you teeny boppers saying you are going to marry him! It's time to seperate fantasy from reality, kids :) He is destined to be with Kristen Stewart! They are perfect for each other. He doesn't date fans... andwhy would he? You guys are all delusional and way to obsessed with him. I think he should date a very hot model. He deserves the best looking girl!

I Think Its Good That Rob Doesnt Want To Be A Role Model, And Change For All His Fan. Sure Hes In The Spotlight, But That Doesnt Mean He Should Be Like Al The Actors And Actresses Out There Who Act Like The Love Everyone And Everything, And Are Everyones Bestfriends. Hes Being Honest And Himself, And That Deserves Some Respect. And For All The Sad People Posting Stuff Like I Love You Your So Hot Will You Marry Me. Get A Grip For God Sake. Sure He Is Gorgeous, But Hes Hardly Going To Marry Marry Strange Teenagers That Would Stalk Him. Yous People Need To Start Living In The Real World, There Are Plenty Hot People You Actually Have A Chance With So Stop Harrassing, Actors:)(Y) Twilight Rocks.

I understand u robert. If I was an actress I wouldnt want to be a model to everyone either. I would hate having to try to make everyone happy and pleased with me everyday. I know that if O was famouse I would love my fans for the support but I wouldnt want to be a model for everyone of my fans. I know what u mean by not wanting to be a model for us and thats okay.

well if you dont wont to be a role model then why put your self in the spot light. if you are good at acting then how about you start acting like a role model when in the spot light you did sign up for it you knew thousands of people would be watching your every move????????

I should say, though, that I'm glad he's not one of those "OMG I LOVE BEING NICE IT'S THE GR8TST LOOK UP TO MEEEEEE AND I LURVES MY CO-STARS AND OMG WE'RE JUST ONE BIG FAMILY!!!!" people. Those are even more annoying than mediocre actors in boring movies based on atrocious books.

wow why you freaking out and argueing about how much you love Rob, this is a fan site you really think he wants to read about hes fans WANTING to marry him, like thats ever going to happen start living in the real world !

no matter what he does he'll always be a role model to someone. his fan base is way too huge for his actions to go unoticed. though, i think the fact he isnt going to change is fine, no one should ask him to anyways. i've never once changed myself for anyone nor have i given into peer pressure, its just apart of who i am. who robert is doesn't need to change because hes in the spotlight. if anything hes one of the best role models...they look to him and see he is who he wants to be. so many teenagers get frustrated and confused when they try too hard to follow their role models. its whatever, maybe they will just learn to be themselves...and if they want to be like robert they'll learn to show other people that its cool to be yourself.

This site is for Robert Fan comments right? hmmm. Well if you do read this stuff Robert hopefully us Fans don't scare you. I really loved your part in Twilight. It's movies like that that give hope to the rest of there world that real love does exist, no matter who you are. I like your music as well. The song you did for the movie was awesome. I listened to some of your other stuff and I really liked it. Some people really go over board with the loving of your character it seems. Wanting to Marry you and stuff. Your a normal guy, don't let those people freak you out. Anyway I am SO EXCITED for NEW MOON!@@@ as I am sure everyone else is. You play Edward so well I fell in love with his character immediately. Great Job!

And for the other delusional freak mrs robert pattison who if she really loves Rob and is supposedly going to marry him wouldnt u at least learn to spell his last name right u big tard.. This is one reason why Rob likes to stay indoors and is extremely paranoid.. There are wierdos like u 2 who scare him...

Keith is just jealous! Rob is soulful and full of life and I love that he is himself. He has a contagious laugh and when he smiles its hard not to smile with him. I don't see him as a role model, I see him as this really cool guy I would just love to hang out with. Get over it Keith! Kisses to Rob!

Robert really is a great guy. I met him in Dallas at the hot topic promo and gave him my number and he actually called. I'm from Austin and a few weeks later he came out to see me after numerous phone calls with one another. Let's just say Rob is a real gentleman. Held my doors for me, paid for everything and was able to show me a fantastic time in my own hometown! We went to Mt. Bonnell and to a local record store where he bought a Smiths and morrissey vinyl. Dinner was great though he's really shy, it's kinda cute actually. Not to mention this boy smells absolutley FABULOUS! He wears issey miyake, I felt so silly trying to catch whiffs of him throughout the evening. I talk to him about once a week. Really wish this boy lived state side!! *SIGHS*

why does everyone think there gunna marry him like he even knows who are and just because you know his b'day and that crap doesnt mean u are his perfect match...

To; 'MrsRobertPattinson' Chill out. I mean; seriously, he doesn't even know who you are, perhaps you should really stop wasting your time trying to get him to notice you, and spend some time getting to know the men that do know you exist.

OME!!! i hate people like "MrsRobertPattison"! u didn't even spell his last name rite!...i really doubt he is gonna marry u! i can say "i love Rob" if i wanna..u dont control what say! i also kno all that shit about when his birthday is and that his sister's used to dress him up like a girl! all you would have to do to find that shit out is to go on a Robert Pattinson fansite! NOT THAT HARD!! I LOVE YOU ROB!! YOU ARE SO AWESOME!!! ♥

i think by rob saying that it actually makes him a rolemodel in a way. people will follow his example by being themseleves. which they should do anyway. and life's not all about being a good rolemodel. no offense to miley cyrus fans but she isn't the best role model either. what i admire about miley and rob is that they just live their lives the way THEY want. and that's what they should do! :)
