Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have learned hard lessons about keeping their private lives private over the years. Since the unexpected explosion of fame experienced during the Twilight boom, naturally shy and modest people like Rob and Kristen found it painful to handle the intrusion of paparazzi into their lives.

Still, they have lived and learned. Robert Pattinson recently spoke to The Guardian about separating work and home in what could be referred to as The Reverse-Kardashian Method:

The idea of taking a photographer back to my family’s’s just insane!

It’s not really even to do with the photographs — it might be nice to have a really good photographer do it, but it’s bringing your family into the public domain and then having to have them deal with this horrible cacophony of demons who live on the internet. That’s really ruined a lot of things, internet trolls, because no one wants to put themselves out there. Even if you can ignore it — and I don’t think anyone can really ignore it.

Rob evidently feels more comfortable acting out another's life - check out the trailer for his upcoming James Dean biopic, Life, below.

Poor Rob feels guilty for accidentally bringing his relatives into the fame circus by proxy:

With my sisters, you just bring people into something they have not asked to be part of. It’s impossible for you to stop it afterwards. All you can say is: ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry for bringing this darkness into your life. And also you don’t get anything out of it, either.’ It’s just nothing but bad, yeah.

When it comes to his relationship with his fiancee, singer FKA Twigs, Rob has learned that the best policy is silence, particularly in response to the shocking amount of racist abuse unleashed on Rob and his partner. When asked by The Guardian about his fiancee, Rob simply responded:

I’ve just found if you never talk about stuff, it’s better.

What do you think about Rob's publicity-avoidance tactics?


Are intrusive interviewers and photographers simply part of the price of fame?
