Robert Pattinson: A Bad Role Model?

by at . Comments

The effect Robert Pattinson has on his young fans is clear.

They scream in the streets for him; they camp out for days to attend his movie premieres; they buy posters, shirts and all kinds of apparel with his face on it; they help him sky-rocket to the A-list and be considered for a new franchise lead.

In short, whether Pattinson asks for it or whether he deserves it, this fact is undeniable: he influences million of people.

With that in mind, it's difficult to not be taken aback when looking at a couple outtakes from the actor's photo shoot with Wonderland Magazine. These never made it into the publication, but Pattinson didn't know that would be the case when he stuck a lit cigarette into his mouth and posed for them:

Is Robert well within his rights to smoke? Of course.

But was it really necessary to do so as part of a pictorial that would be viewed around the world? Unless Pattinson was trying to prove that even he's capable of looking ugly, we say no, not at all. It was a dumb decision.

What do you say? Does smoking in such a manner make Pattinson a bad role model?

He doesn't need a cigarette to make himself look ugly. He's hideous.

Bid deal. Nobody reads that dopey magazine anyway. People are truly not that dumb. Otherwise, the world would be littered with drug addicts from the days when Lindsey "8 ball" Lohan was seen as a role model.
