It was an unplanned encounter when "America's Next Top Model" cycle 13 winner Nicole Fox met Robert Pattinson for the very first time. Recounting the surprise run-in with the heartthrob, she tells E! News that it happened backstage at "Live with Regis and Kelly", where she made an appearance.
"I was backstage going to the bathroom - in a bathroom I probably wasn't supposed to be using," Nicole opens up. "But when I came out, [Pattinson] was in the hallway, like two feet away from me, [just] standing there. I was shaking." Asked if she approached the "Twilight" leading actor and talked to him, she answers "I didn't. He was surrounded by his throng of people. And so I didn't want to feel like a dorky fangirl. I just looked down at my shoes and walked away."
Nicole, furthermore, enthuses "I actually don't know that much about [Pattinson]. I haven't seen the 'Twilight' movies or anything like that. But I definitely have friends who are obsessed. For this Halloween, actually, I helped out one of my friends with her costume. She wanted a bigger-than-life portrait drawn of Robert Pattinson on her shirt. I drew that portrait - which is partially why I recognized him when I saw him in the hallway."
She goes on telling E! News, "I was like, Oh! That hair! I know that hair. I've drawn that hair!" adding "Perhaps I will begin to watch the Twilight movies now that I saw him in real life."
