Jimmy Fallon is often found in a tree looking pale, pretending to be Robert Pattinson going on about the things that bother him in the world’s worst British accent. But on Monday night, Fallon had some company up in that lonely tree when the real RPattz climbed into “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.”
“The month of March,” Fallon emoted in his latest “Robert Is Bothered” skit. “Comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb. What the f— does that mean? Pick an animal and stick with it!”
“Hey,” the “Twilight” star interrupted, his arms wrapped around a limb just behind Fallon, eyes narrowed in his signature fashion. “I don’t talk like that.”
“How does it make you feel?” Jimmy countered.
“I don’t know how it makes me feel, to be honest,” Pattinson said. “A little bit annoyed, a little bit frustrated …”
“Something that starts with a ‘B,’ maybe?” Fallon persisted.“A little maybe bit broken,” Rob countered.
“Close, but … does it bother your?” Fallon said.
“Yeah, I’m bothered,” R. Pattz finally admitted to Fallon’s fist-pumping delight.
The only thing that was louder than the scream that greeted the first glimpse of Pattinson in the tree was the sustained squeals from the studio audience when Fallon offered Pattinson the opportunity to shoot lasers out of his eyes as the actor sat down for a chat back in the studio. Mussing his signature bed-head thatch of hair, Pattinson seemed quite amused by the trick, expertly segueing into a chat about his new romantic film, “Remember Me.”
Asked if he’s ever watched co-star Emilie de Ravin on “Lost,” Pattinson admitted that he watched half of the first episode and was so confused he had to bail. “It was already too much for me,” he sighed.
Pattinson agreed with Fallon that Edward Cullen fans might be on board for “Remember Me” since it had a similar dramatic, dark vibe. “I hope so,” he said, as the crowd squealed in assent.
Talking about the endless press he’s done for the “Twilight” series, RPattz said he was so terrified of going on the “Late Show With David Letterman” to talk about “New Moon” for the umpteenth time last year that he memorized every stock answer perfectly to avoid getting tripped up. “I prepared all my answers just before, and I was so comfortable as I walked in, every little nuance, every little mannerism was all planned out,” he said.
But his responses to “Remember Me” questions have been much less planned out. “People ask me what the film’s about I’m like, ‘Pfftt,’ ” he laughed, joking about possibly being over prepared.
Pattinson also talked about recently his older sister Lizzie’s music. When a Twitter question came in about whether the actor — who performed some music for the first “Twilight” soundtrack — might ever release an album, Pattinson raked his hands through his hair once more and smiled, “I don’t know.” He looked confused at first when a desperate-sounding plea rose up from the crowd and then realized that the ladies in the audience were repeatedly yelling, “Please!”
Fallon then suggested an admittedly horrible idea, asking Pattinson if he might form a band with co-star Kristen Stewart called … wait for it … “the Twight Stripes.”
“That sounds really, really bad,” Pattinson cringed. “That sounds like it means something …”
