Obviously, I was aware of Robert Pattinson. Obviously I know he’s a big teen heartthrob. But I haven’t seen the Harry Potter films in which he plays Cedric Diggory and I haven’t seen any Twilight movies, so I couldn’t see the appeal.
But a while ago, my friend Clodagh Murphy told me to watch Remember Me. I can’t quite remember why, but she said it was good and so I listened (despite knowing that me and Clodagh tend to have opposite tastes in pretty much everything). I think she also said it would make me see the appeal of RPattz so, knowing me, I probably saw that as a challenge. Ha.
Oh I saw the appeal. I saw the appeal almost instantly. After about fifteen minutes, I was thanking god I’m no longer 14 and not going to get completely obsessed and, you know, go and wait outside his house for months on end. He’s yummy.
And I loved the film too. It wasn’t what I was expecting and it left me a bit WTAF?! But it was an excellent way to spend a couple of hours on a freezing cold Thursday morning.
(Thanks, Clodagh! You’re still wrong about black pudding though…)
