British star Robert Pattinson has been dating his fiancée / girlfriend FKA Twigs for more than a year now.
However, he does not talk much about his new found love. It can be judged from here that he prefers to keep his love life private and understand what all havoc can be created by outsiders.
According to seventeen.com, the handsome hottie took some time out to and said something about FKA Twigs during a recent interview.
According to reports, he praised his new love. Pattinson went on to say that FKA is a wonderful person and a truly exceptional artist.
Pattinson also spoke about the racist haters that his girlfriend had to deal with when she was dating R Patz, and he states that he did not find it amusing at all.
Rob said that he was talking to his father on this topic and he stated that in case he happens to watch the funeral ceremony of Nelson Mandela on YouTube, he would make the first comment of a racist.
According to hollywoodlife.com, Pattinson argues that he does not understand why it happens so. He is of the view that most of the people do not know how to comment.
He also added that he wants to fight back on the racist comments that his girlfriend FKA gets, but he is of the view that this battle is not as small as it seems and it is best to let the beast sleeping.
This is that awkward feeling where we try to fight and overpower this beast that does not have any face. It is a situation where this beast feeds on your hatred.
The more you hate him, the bigger he will become. It is better to leave things as they are…

FKA Twigs holds sold out concerts, has a cool sense of style, and is dating British star Robert Pattinson – and with all that comes an ugly side of fame.
‘Twigs’ has been the target of racism and threats since it became apparent that she was romantically involved with Pattinson, best known for his work in the Twilight movies.
In a new interview, Twigs said that she’s glad to be dating the actor.
Nonetheless, despite the hoards of paparazzi following her every step and the “14-year-old” haters who “should be in bed”, Twigs says that it’s all “very worth it”.
“I really enjoy the fun of putting something out and people liking it or hating it or talking about it,” she told USA Today, “but vacuous attention, it feels disgusting. It’s like a hangover.”
However, “the positivity that I get from (my relationship) makes the more challenging aspects … very worth it.”
But dating one of the most beloved actors in the world isn’t easy. Between that and all the attention surrounding her rising fame, Twigs has had to deal with an ugly amount of backlash – racist remarks, death threats via Twitter.
Twigs said, “Recently, people said horrible things about something I had no control of, which was tough.”
She adds, “I never really saw anything wrong with how I looked, it was more that certain people pointed things out to you about yourself. Either your hair’s different, or the colour of your skin, or your features.
“Half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating.”
On her debut album, FKA Twigs explores heartbreak and reveals raw emotions, about which she said, “You try to do something, and it makes you feel disgusted in yourself.
“Whether it’s loving someone, trying to make music or trying to finish something and it’s painful, you’re constantly confronted with your lack of skill level, or you’re trying to love someone and you’re confronted with all the demons you have.” Oo-er…
Still, Twigs loves fashion—even if not everyone understands her sense of style. “I’ll go shopping and I’ll be like, ‘I want to buy this,’ and they’re like, ‘You don’t really,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah… Then I’ll wear it, and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, actually, that’s cute. Can I borrow it?'”
So, whether you listen to her music (LP1) or know her because of her sexy ex-vampire boyfriend, the British singer FKA Twigs undeniably has the potential of becoming one of 2015’s biggest new artists, and it isn’t down to having RPattz as a boyf’!
Check out her intense new music video.

I hear Robert Pattinson might be leaving Los Angeles.
The actor, who sold his $6.4 million mansion near the Hollywood sign last year, said in a recent interview, “The house was so amazing. I wasn’t really thinking when I got it. I was just living in LA and had been living in and out of hotels, and you have money for the first time.”
Pattinson says, “If you are the kind of person who needs to be pushed into doing something, then Hollywood is not the right place, so I think I might be done with Los Angeles.”
I’ve just realized that in the past few weeks,” he adds. Oo-er!
“I think I need to spend more time in London, or just move around a bit more,” explains Pattinson. “I’ve been in LA for six or seven years or something and it’s weird. The more you stay there, especially as an actor, the more you think you need to be there, that you’ll be missing out on something by leaving, but you are not really.”
The famously self-deprecating Pattinson still has a little trouble with the fame aspect of his career.
“I self-obsess a lot. When I’m doing interviews I’m always waiting for some stupid remark to come out,” he explains.
Pattinson goes on to say, “I try to avoid getting into any subject where I’m locked into something. It’s not like I’m a politician or something. I used to be so dumb in interviews, I used to try and make jokes all the time and everyone is thinking, ‘This guy is a moron, he’s just been saying dumb stuff for years and years.’”
He seems to be very happy with how his career has changed.
“It’s quite nice doing small parts,” says Pattinson. “Then the film isn’t totally reliant on what I do in it, so I get to work with who I want to work with and it’s not my fault if it doesn’t make any money.”
I have to say, I too have felt like leaving LA… But after spending a time away you come realize there’s just no other place on earth like it. You can’t beat Los Angeles…
Robert, you’ll be back…mark my words!

He’s been linked to several high-profile women since his break-up with Kristen Stewart last year, but now Robert Pattinson is reported to be in his first serious relationship since KStew.
This week reports have surfaced that he 28-year-old star of the Twilight movie saga is dating rising British singer FKA Twigs (real name Tahliah Barnett). Oo-er!
The hunky actor has been dating ‘twigs’ for a couple of weeks now and sources are saying it’s the real deal.
“It’s the real deal between Rob and Tahliah,” the insider said.
“They had been able to keep their relationship secret until recently, but they’re already smitten.”
“He’s been taking her on dates for the last month or so, and has even flown her out to stay with him in New York. He also loves going to her gigs.”
Twigs (the FKA stands for ‘formerly known as’, added after another artist complained that the name Twigs was already in use) has already created quite a career for herself in music, earning huge praise for her second EP and singles including Water Me.
And the 26-year-old, who was shortlisted for the BBC’s Sound of 2014 award, is hoping that she avoids any drama with Rob’s ex, as well as dodging being pigeon-holed as just a celeb girlfriend.
Meanwhile, KStew was thousands of miles away in Japan, where she is promoting her new film, Equals, a futuristic utopian thriller in which she stars with British actor Nicholas Hoult.
Pattinson and Stewart have had an on-off affair for many years, and Kristen’s affair with director Rupert Sanders in 2012 appears to have signalled the death knell to their Twilight romance.
Pattinson’s latest film Life will be released in 2015. He recently told The Guardian that he’d like to appear in “something in a really small theatre”.
He added: “I don’t think I could do something on Broadway… But I’d quite like to do something kind of shocking.”

There’s something new in the life of British-born star Robert Pattinson that’s been completely life-changing… wait for it, um…moisturizing!
Known for his love of grungy style, beanies and scruffy hair, RPattz, appears to be resurrecting that image just a tad, in the Dior Homme fragrance campaign. While speaking with The Wall Street Journal, the 27-year-old “Twilight” stud opened up about his grooming habits, namely his skincare regimen, and shared that he recently switched up his morning routine which has worked wonders on his flawless face.
“I was a brush-your-teeth-and-have-a-shower kind of guy.
“I can’t tell if it’s because of my association with Dior or because I’m older, but I’ve started moisturizing,” the heartthrob revealed, citing Dermo System Repairing Moisturizing Emulsion as his favorite skin salve.
“It’s been a quite a profound change in my life,” he added with a tinge of sarcasm.
Arrrgh! Get me a bucket… Which PR wrote this script!!! #puppet!
Dior Homme Eau for Men will go on sale in the U.S. in February.

Britain’s A-list actors are the hunkiest in the world according to a new poll of the hottest male celebs. Seven of our homegrown studs made the final top 10 places. Does this imply that British men are the sexiest men in the world?
There were plenty of sexy contenders for the number one spot, but Superman star Henry Cavill stole the most hearts this year swooping in snatching Robert Pattinson’s crown as Glamour magazine’s world’s sexiest man. The Twilight hunk, slipped to second place.
It’s quite an achievement for the “Man of Steel” star who’s about to star in Guy Ritchie’s remake of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth, was third with Thor star Tom Hiddleston, and Benedict Cumberbatch, in fourth and fifth.
One Direction’s Harry Styles, managed to beat Justin Bieber, Sweeney Todd actor Jamie Campbell Bower, and Luther’s – Idris Elba, also made it to the top 10.
Surprisingly, hottie Charlie Hunnam is just outside the ten making it to eleventh place on the list, and there’s no sign of David Beckham… Too old? Hmm!

According to a statement from the studios behind the film, Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam will no longer play Christian Grey in the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Universal Pictures and Focus Features said in a joint statement: “The filmmakers of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey.”
The 33-year-old British actor was the second casting announcement for the steamy film adaptation of E.L. James‘ erotic trilogy, after James took to Twitter revealing that Dakota Johnson would play Anastasia Steele on September 2.
“The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey,” she wrote.
Almost immediately, the actors and producers faced severe backlash from devoted readers, many of which hoped for other stars like Robert Pattinson and Ryan Gosling to bring the book fantasy to life.
A source close to Hunnam counters that the exit is “truly due to scheduling. The role of Christian Grey requires a massive time commitment, a trilogy role in which Charlie and his team were originally very aware of from the start and a major consideration in his hesitancy for taking the role.
Charlie is the lead in a massive TV series and his loyalty will always be to Sons of Anarchy, the SOA family and fans.”
One possible factor for exiting the coveted role? The attention got to be too much for the hunky Sons of Anarchy star.
The season 6 finale of FX’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’ began shooting Oct. 11, one day before Universal Pictures and Focus Features made the announcement. ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is due to hit theaters Aug. 1, 2014.
Author E L James responded briefly on Twitter: “I wish Charlie all the best. x,” she wrote. (It’s unclear whether her tweet 17 minutes before that one was related: “Okay girls and boys – hold on to your hats – it’s about to get serious…”)
My sources tell me however, that this was not a sudden decision, and Hunnam’s role in the film was never a done deal… Oo-er this is getting juicy…

Originally, I thought this was an unlikely campaign but after seeing Robert Pattinson’s Dior Homme ad, I was pleasantly surprised… I liked it!
The one-minute, eight-second video titled “The Film” was has finally been released in its entirety after being posted on fashion house Christian Dior’s YouTube channel last week. The “Twilight” alum sizzles in the black-and-white short.
Pattinson was named the face of the men’s fragrance back in June, joining the ranks of Dior’s A-list celebrity spokespeople: Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Eva Herzigova, and Jude Law to name a few, who have all promoted the brand’s fragrances.
The campaign was shot by American photographer Nan Goldin and French director Romain Gavras and they’re meant only for European and Asian markets that exclude Great Britain, China and Japan, according to Dior (via WWD).
However, they are very visible in those places and here, thanks to a little thing called the Internet.
In the video, the 27-year-old lazes about fully clothed in a bathtub, runs on rooftops, drives fast cars on the seashore, jumps in a pool and messes around with French model Camille Rowe. All this — set to the tune of “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin — for no other reason than to sell a men’s fragrance.
Pattinson explained that he was he was initially “terrified” and “scared” to shoot the Dior campaign’s short film, the actor says he signed on because “I wanted to do something different for me.”
“Doing something that is quite mainstream but also edgy fit into where I want my life to go,” explains Pattinson.
Rob goes on to call the final result — released last week — “visceral, “quite wild,” and “hopefully pretty sexy.”
And who exactly is the “Dior Homme man”? Pattinson says, “The Dior Homme man is I think someone who’s just a little bit wild.”
“[He] does whatever he wants, is a bit of a free spirit, not really scared of anything, can be whoever he wants to be,” says the movie star.
Dior was also sure to share its official ad hashtag “#DIORROB” at the end of the video for those who feel the need to share the campaign via social media. Ouch, I say… Verrry sexy!
