Ouch, Robert Pattinson. Ouch.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly for its upcoming Eclipse cover story, the gorgeous actor was asked about Kristen Stewart's comments last month, where she compared the paparazzi to rapists.
While Kristen herself saw the error in her word choice and maturely apologized for it, Rob stood up for his rumored girlfriend and pointed the finger at, well... us.
"That whole system of Internet journalists, where no one is called to account, is almost entirely about hate," he said "All these people get away with doing it because they have no responsibility to anyone... there are so many little nerds behind their computers, on their little blogs."
Don't worry, Kristen. Rob has your back.
Pattinson may have a decent point overall, but this wasn't the ideal topic to express it over.
Stewart clearly over-stepped with her reference to "rape" and can often come across as ungrateful for her lot in life. But she dealt with that issue herself in the aforementioned apology and this doesn't seem to be a battle she needed her man to fight on her behalf.
The pair were seated next to one another during this interview, though, and it did lead to one of Stewart's funniest points to date. After Rob finished his rants, she said:
"See, if I said that? Crucifixion. You can say so much more than me. It's insane...you could say, 'I just took a s***on the Queen's face,' and people would be like, 'Oh, I love him! I love him!'"
Ha! She's totally right.
P.S. Rob, we prefer to be labeled as "geeks," thank you very much!
