Every now and then it’s nice to hear about an actor who isn’t completely insane, or even more shocking; grateful. Especially one who became hugely famous seemingly overnight. That’s why it’s so hard to dislike Robert Pattinson, even though his movies practically demand it. Page Six says…
Robert Pattinson knows how to work a crowd.
The “Twilight” hunk showed up an hour before the premiere of “Water for Elephants” to schmooze with fans Sunday night.
His driver dropped him at the top of the block so he could stroll along West 54th Street and sign autographs.
Maybe he’s so nice because he knows how fickle fate can be. And what better way to learn that than by watching a clown burn to death. On the Today show yesterday he explained why, even though his new movie is about the circus, he’s only been once and has no desire to go back.
“The first time I went to a circus, somebody died. One of the clowns died.”
“His little car exploded. The joke car exploded on him. Everybody ran out. It was terrifying.”
At least the clown died doing what he loved; seeing someone throw a bucket towards him that was actually filled with confetti and spraying him with seltzer water. What a way to go!
