The dubious Robert Pattinson interview is a time-honored tradition.
There are those memorable instances when a months-old comment is construed as “new” or an obvious joke as a “revelation.”
Sometimes a magazine will make it sound as though personal subjects never discussed actually were.
Often an interview didn’t happen.
Sometimes Gossip Cop even manages to force publications to remove offending, fabricated quotes.
Now comes an “interview” in Look magazine that seems (mostly) believable… except for the very first question and answer.
“You’ve finally admitted you and Kristen [Stewart] are together,” Look begins. “What’s the secret to winning your heart?”
Replies Pattinson, supposedly, “Money! And an unbelievable amount of patience.”
A couple of things.
First, Pattinson never “admitted” to dating Stewart. We hate to say it over and over, but outlets keep building on top of faulty premises built from reports that were never accurate. Again, this is NOT to say Pattinson and Stewart are or are not a couple.
But this ridiculous habit of treating their personal decisions as matters of public discourse — even after they’ve repeatedly shied away from discussing them — has got to stop.
Which brings us to our second point. While most of Pattinson’s responses in the Look piece seem to be consistent with what he’s said in other places while promoting Remember Me, answering a non-professional Kristen Stewart question with talk about how “money” is a key to his heart just seems… well, completely uncharacteristic.
Pattinson may have given a general answer about what he’s looking for in a woman with the “patience” portion, but it is NOT about Stewart.
And to use “Kristen Needs Patience to Date Me!” as a direct quotation and as the headline is a complete misrepresentation.
Pattinson said no such thing.
It seems like the magazine used a manipulated, highly dubious quote to frame an otherwise run-of-the-mill chat.

Things I hate and do not condone on my blog, misrepresentation and sensationalism. It's one thing to tease your readers and another to completely make fools out of them. Thanks again GossipCop.
