Robert Pattinson apparently likes to make himself more relatable and we can embrace that. Hell, we love it.
Now, having anxiety, our prescription for Xanax has gotten us through a lot. This writer has Valium (which is prescribed for esophageal spasms and anxiety) and really would like to never have to explain all of the things that she’s done on the medication.
Now, we realize that you didn’t click to hear about my Valium moments, but you did click
“I’d started to develop this absolute terror of auditions, which I’m sure a lot of actors have,” Pattinson explained in a recent video for GQ. “I could be so enthusiastic about something and then the day of the audition, my confidence would just entirely collapse. The same thing happened on the morning of the Twilight audition.”
His agent told him to go in the bathroom and find a Valium. Though I am thinking that is probably a story he shouldn’t tell, we ain’t mad about it.
“I had never taken a Valium before,” Pattinson continued. All we (me) can think is about the first time a valium passed these lips.
“I just remember feeling so glorious in the back of the taxi with the window open and just being like, ‘Wow, this is what I’ve been missing.’ I think I had this quite spacey, detached kind of thing in the audition, which must have worked for the character.”
We’re just saying, we’re thankful for whatever it was, because we love us some Pattinson.
