Robert Pattinson looks dark and brooding on the cover of this month’s Italian Vanity Fair. But inside he opens up about his view on relationships. Apparently, the Twilight star just doesn’t get the whole cheating thing.
“Life is not black and white … [but] there is one thing I never understood: why people cheat,” he told the magazine.
I’m sure his preference for monogamy will be a relief for love interest Kristen Stewart.
He’s also a bit old fashioned when it comes to the idea of long-term commitment.
“My parents met when my mom was 17 and my father 25, they are still together and seem very happy. I grew up believing that you can be together all of your life,” he explained.
This is the second time Pattinson has graced the cover of Vanity Fair in as many months. Last month, it was the American version of the magazine, where he was depicted with an alligator draped over his hunky shoulders in reference to Water for Elephants (in which he stars with Reese Witherspoon and Christopher Waltz).
In the accompanying article he talks about his respect for Stewart, how the elephant in his most recent film was his favorite co-star.
He also proclaims his admiration for people like Charlie Sheen, saying: “I like crazy people who don’t give a f*ck.”
He doesn’t put himself in that category. Instead, he talks about how he struggles with the attention brought on by his stardom. He comes across as simple with just a hint of melancholy, particularly when he describes a rare, fleeting instance of anonymity in a Texas diner.
