They're both young, talented, successful, handsome and British. Nevertheless, Robert Pattinson and Andrew Garfield can't stand each other and hate that they're always compared and, most importantly, competing for the same parts.
Pattinson is internationally famous for his role as the brooding and gorgeous vampire Edward Cullen in “The Twilight Saga,” while Garfield is just going mainstream with “The Amazing Spider-Man,” after enjoying critical success with his previous films.
It would seem like Hollywood is a big enough place for the both of them but, as Us Weekly would have it in its latest print issue (story via Glamour UK
), they don't necessarily feel that way.
“The truth is, Andrew can't stand Rob. Andrew hates that they're put in the same category because they're both English and around the same age,” says an unnamed source claiming to be well in the know.
“The story goes on to say that the feeling is mutual. According to the insider, the two completely ignored each other at the wedding of their producer friend Kevin Turen on the 23 June 2012,” Glamour says.
The feeling might be mutual, but the feud might have started with Andrew, who reportedly considers himself the better actor of the two.
“They don't enjoy hanging out. Andrew considers himself a 'serious actor' and sees Rob as the equivalent of a cheesy boy bander because of Twilight,” says the spy.
“Both like intense parts and go after the same roles. They're just naturally competitive,” adds another tipster.
Fans of both actors know that the above can't be true: at the Golden Globes 2012, when Garfield was nominated for his role in “The Social Network,” the two made headlines for going to the after-party together
Chances are things haven't changed that much since then, and they are still good friends.
