It may have made him a global superstar - perhaps that's the problem - but Robert Pattinson's not got many nice words for Twilight fans. The hunky actor has been rather blunt about Twihards and questioned how they have the time to be so obsessive. Bit Harsh Rob, enjoying that LA mansion you now live in?

Robert Pattinson has dissed the hordes of diehard Twilight followers out there.

They were the fans that made him millions and yet at this point - two years on from the final instalment of the franchise - he's surprised people aren't over it yet.

The Brit told Germany's Interview magazine: "The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers. Most of them are older."

He went on: "Twilight has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one.

"And in an intense way that has never existed before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day.

"They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight."


It's perhaps down to Rob's disdain for celebrity culture that led him to slam the fans that made him so wildly successful.

He often appears very grumpy to see paparazzi and we all know how Kristen Stewart feels about photographers.

Rob even once spoke about his disdain for his press nickname, RPatz.

InTouch magazine reported he said: "I'd like to strangle the guy who came up with it!"

According to the magazine, the actor referred to he who coined the name as "some fat celebrity blogger".

Last year he told TODAY show host Savannah Guthrie: "I don't understand what the nickname culture is.

"If I could figure out a way to get rid of that, it'd be amazing. It does sound like an antacid tablet."

Why so grumpy, RPatz?

Perhaps it's because the 27-year-old is trying to get his music career on track and wants to be taken seriously.

We're sure Twilight fans would love to see Edward Cullen sing them a song...
