MTV’s Larry Carroll has a new article on all the Robert Pattinson rumors that have been going on in the past few months!
Over the past 22 months or so, Robert Pattinson has rocketed from obscurity to omnipresence. He’s also dealt with a ton of ridiculous rumors. Now, hot on the heels of reports that RPattz was going to play Kurt Cobain in a feature film, we look back on the 10 dumbest (and utterly untrue) Robert Pattinson rumors:
Rob’s Nirvana?: The Sun is a British tabloid that seems to specialize in stories about how Megan Fox is going to play Catwoman. Their latest “scoop,” however, was a real doozy — Rob was in regular contact with Courtney Love and had landed the role of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in a biopic. The rumor got a bit of traction, particularly because of RPattz’s well-documented love of music, but ultimately the Sun story was dismissed by Love’s reps, leaving the tabloid to offer all apologies.
Rob Is a Pirate: Yo ho ho and a bottle of bull. That’s what rumors of RPattz playing Jack Sparrow’s brother in “Pirates of the Caribbean 4″ turned out to be, after reports had him battling Zac Efron and Russell Brand (!?) for the role. Somebody needs to make whoever started that rumor walk the plank.
