Rob's kisses...worth $20,000??

Robert Pattinson attended the AMFAR Cinema Against AIDS event in Cannes today, and yet again, he was impeccably dressed. But Rob wasn't merely attending this event, he was on the auction block himself. ET reports

"The vampy leading man was auctioned off today in Cannes for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2009 Cocktail Party. The bidding got so high that Pattinson was split between two bidders, who each paid $20,000 for the chance to meet, greet and win a kiss on the cheek from the ‘Twilight’ idol."

Okay, I have to admit, my first response is "What? $20,000? Are they out of their mind? These people have more money than sense! I mean, I know it's for charity, and I love Rob just as much as the next person, but come on people, seriously!"
And then, I see this picture...
And once I get over melting into a puddle on the floor, I realize there are some very smart wealthy people in Cannes. Very smart, indeed.
Thanks to New Moon Movie.

GMTV - Short video interview with Rob in a report on Cannes. He talks about how the instant recognition amazes him.

Thanks to TwiCrack for all the above.

Rob as Tsomo, Comanche Warrior?

I'm sure you've all heard the news that Rob may be appearing in a movie starring Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz titled "The Unbound Captives". Pattinson Anonymous has gotten a character summary.

Character Name: PHINEAS

Age: The character is shown first at age 10, then again at approximately 17

-As indicated in information published on the internet, Phineas was kidnapped as a child and assimilated in a Comanche tribe.
-Phineas (all descriptions here are of the character at age 17) is described as having long hair and pierced ears, presumably in the 19th-century Comanche style.
-Virtually all of his lines are in Comanche.
-The character’s Comanche name is Tsomo, which means “bead”.
-Yes, he rides a horse…bareback. He rides quite a bit, actually.
-Although the character does have a few flirtatious scenes, this is not a romantic-type role.
-The older Phineas is in the latter parts of the script, perhaps the last third. It is definitely a supporting role.
-Our source describes the character like this: “Phineas is pretty fierce. He’s been raised as a warrior. He can be silent and standoffish, but he can throw a bit of a fit, too.”

I am hoping that this is all accurate since nothing is confirmed so far (see the disclaimer on Pattinson Anonymous). I cannot wait to see Rob in this role. He is such a talented artist.

Happy Birthday Nikki!

Happy Birthday to Nikki Reed, who is 21 today!
