Peter Facinelli speaks about Robert Pattinson and Paps to the LA Times   1 comment


This interview was actually given to the LA Times but it’s posted on the Boston Globe. You can read the entire interview here. Here are the parts pertaining to Robert Pattinson and paps:

Facinelli – who has three daughters and is married to “Beverly Hills, 90210’’ alum Jennie Garth – grew up in New York City. He began his acting career 15 years ago, with bit parts in TV shows, then burst onto the scene in the film “Can’t Hardly Wait.’’ The 1998 teen flick, which starred ’90s darling Jennifer Love Hewitt, didn’t rake in “Twilight’’ numbers, but it helped launch the careers of such stars as Seth Green, Jason Segel, and Selma Blair.

“Things were different then,’’ Facinelli said. “We were young, and in this movie teens were watching but there wasn’t paparazzi out taking all of our pictures. . . . Now, 30 seconds after a picture is taken, it’s on the Internet; and 45 seconds later, hundreds of people have commented on it.’’

Two films into the saga, Facinelli has seen his life – and career – go into overdrive.

In between his “medical’’ commitments – aside from playing bloodsucking Dr. Cullen in the “Twilight’’ saga, he plays a doctor on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie’’ – Facinelli is communicating with fans. He can usually be spotted using his iPhone, blasting tweets to his million-plus followers on a daily – if not hourly – basis.

“It’s my way of having control over what people know about me,’’ Facinelli said.

It’s a savvy attempt to combat the hysteria. While his young “Twilight’’ costars grapple with the media whirlwind attached to the vampire saga’s success, a slightly older Facinelli has a different outlook.

“It is easier for me to deal with now,’’ he said. “I can’t compare to Rob [Pattinson] and Kristen [Stewart], because I’m not with them on a day-to-day basis. But I can say that for me, when I was 23 or 24, I wouldn’t have been able to handle this level of success. Being put under a microscope, I wouldn’t have been able to process it.’’
