TIME magazine's one of the 100 Most Influential People in The World Robert Pattinson recently actually admits in a new TV interview that he became “pretentious” and even behaved like a “douchebag”, before getting himself back in line. Isn’t this one of the reasons we love Robert Pattinson – he is just so down to earth, despite his enormous fame.
Rob confessed that he suffered from a brush with pretentiousness in an interview with Canadian late night talk show host, George Stroumboulopoulos. The interview will air tonight , June 7. He explained that despite becoming a huge movie star, earning $20 million plus a year, he had been determined to remain humble.
“I was really fighting to not look pretentious for years, and someone gives you one inch of the possibility of being pretentious, (in Cannes, where he was asked about his ‘craft’) and you’re like grabbing it so hard, going around being the biggest douchebag,” Rob laughed.
We love that Rob was so anxious to let his fans know that being “pretentious” is not the real Rob. “I’ve kind of reined it in again,” he said about his lapse into douchebaggery. And if anything, we got to see once more in this interview how Robert Pattinson is the opposite of “pretentious” or a “douchebag.” The guy is actually, shockingly lacking in self-confidence.

This “Cosmopolis” actor also admits in a new interview with Canadian talk show host George Stroumboulopoulos that he recently picked a fight with his fellow Brit over which of the two of them has an easier time interacting with civilians in public.
"I had this argument with Adele, which is probably the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever said," explains Pattinson. "I was saying, 'You know, you can really just like reach for it.' And she was like, 'You do realize I am like the biggest-selling female artist ever?'”
Adele, who won six Grammy awards this year and whose album "21" has gone platinum 16 times over, took issue with the "Twilight" saga actor saying that she had an easier time in everyday situations.
