Poor Robert Pattinson. The Twilight heart-throb was recently dissed by D-list talk show hostess, Wendy Williams who called him "pudgy and pale." Of course, no one cares about the rotund Williams' opinions about anything. However, the rather alarming question is: Does Kristen Stewart agree with her? And even more intriguing, does RPattz also agree with La Williams' negative assessment of his physique? According to inside sources, the Bel Ami sex symbol has serious body issues.
According to people close to him, Pattinson is so intensely insecure about his unmanly physique--especially his chest--that he was "deeply upset" when he saw his recent Malibu paddle boarding photos revealed online.
"He's really insecure about his shirt being off," tattled the source. "Robert's put on nearly 10 lbs eating cheeseburgers and drinking beer while he's not been working."
Well, there's nothing like cheeseburgers and beer to make one pudgy. But if Rob hates the sight of himself shirtless, why go frolicking in the Malibu sun and surf--especially when he must know by now that the paparazzi follow him everywhere. Well, there's an answer to that too, and it's two little words--Kristen Stewart. It seems KStew has been nagging--er--trying to persuade her idol beau to "lose a few pounds" and get back in shape. His friends believe he took up the sport to please her.
"Kristen's told him to pull himself together," continued the insider. "He hates the gym, so she's encouraged him to take up paddle surfing to try and work off the excess calories."
Well, Robert Pattinson has often said that he hates the fitness/bodybuilding lifestyle. He's even joked about how he refuses to do so-called "Taylor Lautner acting"--that is, roles that would require him to develop a six-pack and go shirtless. However, what he might refuse to do professionally, he'd probably be more than willing to do to please his girlfriend.
Actually Kristen Stewart should be commended for trying to get her boyfriend to exercise and follow a healthy diet. Cheeseburgers and beer will make the Cosmopolis sex symbol a very dull boy indeed. Hopefully, Rob appreciates her concern. And hopefully, paddle boarding and surfing will work for him.
As for Wendy Williams, she could stand to lose about 30-40 lbs.
