'It's funny how fame affects people,' Diane Nutley slams her famous nephew, claiming the 'Twilight' hunk to have frozen out his family.
Robert Pattinson is in trouble with his family - the star has been accused of turning his back on relatives since finding fame. The British hunk has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since playing vampire hunk Edward Cullen in the hit "Twilight" movies - but his aunt, Diane Nutley, insists stardom has affected her nephew.
She tells Britain's Star magazine, "It looks like we're being frozen out. It's funny how fame affects people. Never in a million years did I think this would happen."
It's not the first time Nutley has spoken out about her superstar relative - last year she revealed Pattinson had introduced alleged girlfriend Kristen Stewart to his parents, and urged the 23 year old not to jump into a serious relationship with his co-star.
