Robert Pattinson Labelled ‘RIP-Patz’ By Hollywood As Career Nose Dives
Robert Pattinson’s career is said to be in such danger he is now the joke of Hollywood and referred to as “RIPatz”.
His last two movies, outside of the ‘Twilight Saga’, ‘Cosmopolis’ and ‘Bel Ami’ have flopped in the US and Hollywood big wigs have noticed.
“Hollywood is taking notice that outside the Twilight movies, Pattinson has the bankability of Greece.” A source told Mail Online.
Despite his star power audiences failed to be impressed by the two movies released earlier this year with ‘Bel Ami’ bombing at the US box office.
“It has made just over $72,000 which is staggeringly low, little more than one screen’s average for the Twilight movies,” the source revealed.
The 26 year-old hasn’t done much better in the UK with David Cronenberg thrilled ‘Cosmopolis’ failing to get into the UK top ten and making a tiny £117,000.
The source went on: “Breaking Dawn: Part 2 will be huge when it is released in November but outside Twilight, it’s just not happening for Robert. Pattinson is finding out that LA can be a cruel town.
“Increasingly Rob is being referred to as RIP-Patz instead of his nickname R-Patz.”
His future in Hollywood, post-Twilight seems to be in jeopardy as he is no longer the golden boy.
“Rob wants to make a small Australian crime movie called The Rover and team up with Cronenberg again to make a drama about the dirty side of Hollywood entitled Map To The Stars,” the source explained. “But both these projects have been thrown into jeopardy as a result of his underwhelming time at the box office.”
The pressure is on Rob to get a hit outside of the ‘Twilight Saga’ which comes to an end this November with the release of ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2’.
The source added: “Robert needs to emulate Andrew Garfield and Daniel Radcliffe who are examples of young British actors that crossed over to become leading men or risk being out of the game by the time he’s 30.”
We think people are being way too harsh on Rob, he is a star for sure!
