Robert Pattinson Fans Fight Back Against Paparazzi

Monday December 7, 2009 at 8:12 PM

Fans of Robert Pattinson have launched a bid to try and stop the actor being harassed by the paparazzi.

The campaign, a joint collaborative effort between a number of fan sites, is calling for an end to candid shots of the 23-year-old Twilight star.

It follows pictures of Pattinson
leaving the Hard Rock Cafe
in Hollywood on Saturday with his arms over his face.

 

 

“We want the paps to know that we don’t want to see pics like these, so stop tak­ing the,” a statement on website Thinking Of Rob said.

“Stop invad­ing his pri­vate life. Enough is enough. Because no per­son deserves this, celebrity our not.

“There are lim­its and you have gone too far. He doesn’t want this, nei­ther do we!”

The campaign wants fans to post banners on their tribute pages with the message: “He Doesn't Want This, Neither Should You.”

More than 600 fans have also taken pictures of themselves with their arms over their faces in protest.

Pattinson is currently appearing in New Moon – the second installment of The Twilight Saga.



Saurce.

 

 

 

 

My thoughts.

I think this is ridiculous and insanely hypocritical of them. These are the same "concerned" fans that are crying all over their Twitters and LJ's that there are no Rob sightings, WHERE IS RPATTZ?! IS HE DEAD?!!? OMG NO NEW PICS IN 2 DAYS, MY LIFE IS OVER!

They fawn over any type of new pic of him, and don't seem to mind if it's pap pics as long as he's smiling. I feel bad for the guy, yeah. No one deserves to have their photo taken all the time when you just want to have a beer with your friends, but Robert Pattinson is $$$$ right now, and everyone is feeding into it, and just making the situation worse. You want more RPattz? It's going to equal him being stalked by the paparazzi.

Also, he seems like a guy who is decently smart, and he knows that when he goes out he will be followed. I'm sure he's aware that a lot of his fans go to his friends shows in the hopes that he'll be there, same with the paps. Did the paps step out of line? Yes, but celebrity is a viscous cycle. And this is the price that he's paying for right now, and I'm quite certain he's aware of that by now.


Basically this: Robert Pattinson is a big boy, he can handle himself. And being concerned and "protecting" him won't get you into his bed any faster. He's also got agents, and productions companies, suits, etc, telling him what the deal is. He knows if he goes out, he'll be hounded.

 

What are your thoughts?

The limit has been reached

Monday December 7, 2009 at 8:11 PM

So I just found out that my sister has been lurking around ADF for past few days. It took me almost a year to get her to read Twilight, and then she fell in love with it. I didn't think when I told her about ADF that she'd actually come here.

It's... weird mixing my Twilife with real life. I think this has made me reach my limit.

So tell me. Who from your RL, if they joined the fandom or ADF, would be your limit? Who is it that would make you say "No! Get out of the fandom!" At what point would your limit be reached?

BTW, Sara, if you're reading this, either apologize for making fun of my Twi-obsession, or get off of ADF.

ENOUGH

Monday December 7, 2009 at 6:30 PM

that post is ridiculous and you all need to realise that the internet is not as anonymous as you think it is.

please, please think about that before you post stuff online. sure, we are welcoming and open here, but there might be someone out there who sees this and informs someone on what you wrote. guess what? that's evidence.

also, i don't care about who did what with whom, stop spamming my twitter with your bitchiness.

now that is out of the way, let's make this post about how great we are. TELL ME ONE AMAZING THING ABOUT YOURSELF. if i see a "i'm not great" i'll yell.

i'll start:

one thing great about me is that i'm fiercely loyal.

 

now, your turn.

Manic Monday.

Monday December 7, 2009 at 10:48 AM

Mondays are suck.

 I'd rather be anywhere else than where I am right now, but it's not possible, so instead we're going to play Anywhere But Here

For instance:

I'd rather be at Isle Esme

drinking tanq and juice

with chainsmoking rob

Tell me Campers, where would you like to be?  With whom?  Doing what?

What fic to start with?

Monday December 7, 2009 at 8:29 AM

Hey there fellow campers. A friend of mine has just finished reading the twilight saga and is asking me for some fic. There are like 10 fics I immediately wanted to tell her to read but most of them are AH or slash and I figured I should ease her into the world of fanfiction.

So, got any good recs? Something Canon for sure. Maybe something picking up where BD ends? Maybe a good what-happened-during-the-fade-to-black-on-the-honeymoon fic? What fic would you suggest someone start out with?

and heres a lil' Rob porn for ya ;-)

I'll start: I'd like to see the boys from Toye decorating a tree. I can see it now. Entrails for garland, eyeballs for ornaments, strands of golden hair for tinsel.   It would be a delight to behold!

Sunday December 6, 2009 at 7:56 PM

YES! THEY ARE BACK!

Jenn and Tor are back from jetting about the United States and Canada for the past few weeks.

They had one hell of a trip.

I couldn't even begin to explain how much fun and trouble they got into and I don't have to because they do a brilliant job of describing their wild and crazy trip in this week's episode of "Dancing with Jenn and Tor!" Here is a brief glimpse of their trip in pictures (and no-I am not kidding)

New Moon is Blind-Sided

Sunday December 6, 2009 at 7:53 PM

So, New Moon took #2 at the box office this weekend. I was expecting it sooner or later. I guess I just didn't expect The Blind Side to take first so soon. It seems like the momentum for this movie has grown since it premiered.

TW LW Title (click to view) Studio Weekend Gross % Change Theater Count / Change Average Total Gross Budget* Week #
1 2 The Blind Side WB $20,440,000 -49.0% 3,326 +186 $6,146 $129,264,000 $29 3
2 1 The Twilight Saga: New Moon Sum. $15,704,000 -63.4% 4,124 +82 $3,808 $255,639,000 $50 3

I guess my point in posting this is to discuss viewership. How many times have you seen it? Did you go recession-proof status and see a matinee?

I've seen it once. I saw it the Saturday after it came out and I've yet to see it again. It sucks when your paycheck comes late.

Horror Movies

Sunday December 6, 2009 at 6:46 PM

Henry Cavil was who SM pictured as Edward originally.  Well he is has a new movie coming out Called Blood Creek. Here is the trailor

pictures:

The movie is looking pretty  scary. ( but I am pretty wimpy that way)

So My question to you is: what do you think of the movie? Any takers? What was your favorite scary movie? What scared ya so bad, that you still have nightmares about it. (my answers are in comments)

PS Any Henry porn would also be great, was called into work and it was utter HELL! I felt like I was in this movie.

This campfire was child tested and Ranger approved.

Anyone Here Good At Math?

Sunday December 6, 2009 at 5:06 PM

Can someone explain something to me?

 

In New Moon, when Bella and Edward are outside the school on Bella's birthday, why does Edward say hes 109 year old?!

 

I mean, first of all, they should go off how old he is in the book New Moon. But even when you go off now, he would only be 108 years old... I think.

 

Sorry, I'm stupid and this has been on my mind for a while.

Please tell me if I've worked it out wrong... And then, if your feeling nice enough, maybe you could explain how it works out... :)

New Story by JENNYFLY

Sunday December 6, 2009 at 4:11 PM

It's called River Dam, and the first chapter is up in Storytelling: CHAPTER ONE

 

After you read it, I insist you comment here about how fabulous it is and go to her jennyfly to discuss.

Also, check out this intriguing author note: Chapter Notes: THIS STORY WAS ORIGINALLY MEANT TO JUST BE MINE, BUT DUE TO THE FACT THAT I NEEDED TO CONSULT ON CERTAIN MATTERS, IT BECAME A COLLABORATION. WHO'S MY GIRL FRIDAY? WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO KNOW? WELL, HAVE A GUESS. NO, REALLY... GUESS! WE'LL MAKE IT LIKE A CONTEST OR SOMETHING. BUT SINCE THE COLLABORATOR ISN'T REPRESENTED IN THIS CHAPTER, THE GAME DOESN'T BEGIN QUITE YET. THIS IS JUST TO GIVE YOU A HEADS-UP. LOOK FOR A POLL OR INSTRUCTIONS OR SOMETHING COMING SOON... THIS STORY WILL POST EVERY SUNDAY.

Are you as curious as I am?

Finally, according to the author note on the version of this she posted on ff, the lovely Support Stacie Auction winners that we have to thank for this beauty are Capricorn75 and Deelovely60. Much love to both of them!

Now, go read it. GO!
