Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson Wants To Strangle Inventor Of 'R-patz'

It may seem as though Robert Pattinson has the world at his feet but the 26 year-old Cosmopolis star has told The Guardian that he is constantly wracked with self-doubt. And in his struggle to cement his reputation as an actor, he also revealed that he wants to "strangle" whoever invented the nickname R-Patz.
Pattinson told The Guardian, in an interview published Saturday (June 9, 2012) that the negative comments that people make about him are the comments that spur him on to do better. "Nothing ever matters to me apart from the people with negative opinions. That's literally it. That always drives me on to the next thing. It's funny, you just focus on them and then the next movie. That's the only thing you're thinking about when it comes out." Pattinson is currently awaiting the release of the David Cronenberg movie Cosmopolis and freely admits that he spent the journey back from the Cannes press conference frantically refreshing the browser on his phone to see what critics had to say. "I was sitting in the car on the way back from the press conference, refreshing, refreshing, refreshing on my phone. I've never really done anything where people have hated it, or really, really read into it."
Aware that it will take time for him to shake off the 'guy from Twilight' stigma that follows him around, Pattinson gets frustrated with the continual headlines that profess "R-Patz's continuing struggle for credibility", adding, "I don't understand who invented that thing, 'R-Patz', I want to strangle them." Cosmopolis is released in the UK on June 15, 2012.
