Rob Pattinson Enjoys His Last Days Of Freedom

Twilight star Robert Pattinson gets swarmed by paparazzi as he leaves London’s Groucho Club on Feb. 14. Rob looked uncomfortable as photogs snapped away at him while he sat expressionless in a cab at 3 a.m. on his way home.

Pattinson, 22, is getting recognized more and more in London—ironic since he had previously considered his hometown the one place where he could hide away from Twilight mania.

Rob is a regular at Groucho, a private members-only social club with bars and a restaurant located in Soho, London. Membership is difficult to get, and its clientele generally come from the media, entertainment, arts and fashion industries. The club is known as a haunt of young British artists.

Rob was spotted leaving the club with British actor friend Tom Sturridge, 23, on Feb. 7, where he was swarmed by female fans. Rob, who lives in Los Angeles when he works, has previously mentioned how different L.A. is from London.

“There isn’t really like a pub [culture] in L.A.,” he says. “It’s just a very different culture. I think people from L.A. don’t really understand how it’s such a normal thing to be in pubs from a very young age in London. People [in America] just think it’s so strange. It seems so normal to me.”

Whereas in the United States, a nightclub or bar is oftentimes a place where men and women pick each other up, in England, a pub is a social gathering place where friends meet up to chat and socialize over beer and bar food. In fact, it’s not unusual to see children in pubs with their parents since a pub is more of a social gathering spot rather than just a place to get drunk.

Rob, who has been relaxing in London since the Christmas holidays, will soon begin working at a feverish pace. In March, he’s set to begin filming New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, in Vancouver and in Volterra, Italy. Immediately after shooting wraps, the 6’1″ British heartthrob will start working on Eclipse (the sequel to New Moon), so that both installments can be rolled out in consecutive years.

Rob can be seen next on the big screen in Little Ashes, which opens in March. In the indie flick, Pattinson plays the eccentric Spanish painter Salvador Dali—an experience he really enjoyed.

Meanwhile, rumors are buzzing that Rob and his Twi co-star Kristen Stewart, 18, may be presenters at the 2009 Academy Awards, which takes place in L.A. on Feb. 22. While there has been no official confirmation, Twi fans are hoping the rumors are true.

Little Ashes opens March 27, while New Moon hits theaters Nov. 20.
