Today is a very special day, it’s the day my Robert Pattinson biography is released!
I’m so excited, I’ve been looking forward to this book coming out for months. My first book (aside from my rugby book which I self-published) was Robert Pattinson A-Z. It came out in May 2010, back when I was the editor of a celebrity website.
I think Rob is one of the best actors on the planet and I’m so impressed with the roles he’s had since playing Edward Cullen. He has never looked for the easy option, he wants to be challenged.
I like thinking about the first time I met Rob, over five years ago now. It was at the Dorchester Hotel in London. It was a rainy day and as I made my way to the hotel I got soaked. When I tried to go in I was stopped by security because they didn’t think I was journalist, they thought I was just a fan trying my luck. I managed to show them some paperwork and they let me inside.
I’d never been somewhere as posh as the Dorchester, I felt so underdressed. I nipped to the loos and took photos – it was so impressive! I was ushered into a room and took my place, alongside some other journalists. We only had to wait a few minutes and then Rob, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner walked into the room. I was in awe.
I was really nervous when I asked Rob my question, how did his sisters’ feel about him being famous? He was very charming and explained that they were happy for him but that his parents still hadn’t got their heads around the fact that he was famous. When they visit him on film sets and someone asks him if he wants a cup of coffee they think ‘why doesn’t he get it himself.’ His parents are so proud of him and this is something I wanted to get across in both of my biographies – Rob has a really supportive family, they back him 100%.
