Getting personal with R-Patz

5 things you probably don’t know

This week, Esquire unveiled its September 2014 issue cover, featuring the very beautiful Robert Pattinson.

The accompanying interview is just as unmissable. From his favourite pastimes to how he dealt with his very public split from ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart, here's what you need to know…

1. He prefers casual to cool: ‘I can’t go to hip places… I have to find weird little restaurants on the fringes. But they’re so much nicer. I love empty bars. Any empty bar, actually.’

2. He’s brutally honest: ‘I tell every production company I work for, I’m probably going to f**k up your entire marketing campaign.’

3. He doesn’t hold grudges, even after his very public break-up with Kristen Stewart: ‘Shit happens, you know? It’s just young people… it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a sh*t?’

4. He swims naked in his pool. Yes, naked: ‘The garden was so huge there were people working on it every day, and you forget… So you’d be naked in the pool, and there’s the guy for the koi pond.’

5. He’s strong-willed: ‘I don’t really care what people think, even though I read all the reviews. If it really mattered, it would have destroyed me years ago.’
