Apparently starring in a couple of crappy movies about teen angst, depression, and obsession affords you the right to be immortalized at the legendary Madame Tussauds. Thousands of fans lined up to drool over a life sized wax statue of Robert Pattinson, which oddly shows more emotional range than anything I’ve seen the actor do in Twilight.
The wax version of Pattinson took four months to create, and £150,000 which is equal to over 200,000 U.S.D. The statue is dressed in typical Edward Cullen fashion with an open-collared shirt, skinny jeans, perfectly coiffed hair and a sultry yet dormant facial expression. The museum says that the young actor’s international popularity after appearing in the teen-centric vampire films made him a prime candidate for Tussauds.
Here’s what spokeswoman Liz Edwards had to say about their decision to immortalize Pattinson.
“R-Patz is one of the hottest celebs on the planet. We are delighted to be able to give them (the fans) the chance to cosy up with their idol here at Madame Tussauds and, judging by the reactions of the first to meet him here this morning, he is set to top our most-kissed list of celebrities very quickly.”
Am I the only one who’s slightly disturbed that this grown woman (probably middle aged) referred to Robert Pattinson as R-Patz? I can’t believe how many people visit the museum just to kiss a statue. Can you imagine all the germs being transferred throughout the day? No thanks! If Pattinson’s career doesn’t flourish after The Twilight Saga ends, I wonder if they’ll feel like they wasted their time and money by including him in their exclusive repertoire?
Do you think Robert Pattinson deserved to be immortalized at Madame Tussauds?
