Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson: 'Celebrity Occupy Supporters Are Hypocrites'

Robert Pattinson was unimpressed with the outpouring of celebrity support for the Occupy protest movement last year (11), insisting the involvement of stars was "hypocritical".
The Twilight actor witnessed several of his Hollywood peers attend rallies in Los Angeles to call for an end to corporate greed, but Pattinson was unconvinced by their backing of the cause.
He tells Britain's Guardian, "I remember when Occupy happened in L.A. I knew a bunch of actors who went down to it. They all drove down there, because no one takes the train, and parked one stop away, because they didn't want to be seen driving their free Audis, and then got on the train.
"I was like, 'What are you doing? You're probably ruining it for the other people!' I guess that's kind of a bubble; you want to say things, but you are being hypocritical. I've never really been in a position to give my opinion on political stuff before, it doesn't really come up. But suddenly you've got to take an enormous amount of responsibility."
