Socialite Paris Hilton snared British actor Robert Pattinson at an Oscars party. The blonde hotel heiress (28) stunned guests at the lavish bash by dragging the ‘Twilight’ star outside for some time alone after asking her younger sister Nicky to help track him down. After scanning Patrick Whitesell’s Hollywood party for her crush, Paris and Robert were spotted “giggling and in deep conversation” for an hour before she reportedly led him into the garden away from the gaze of onlookers. Paris recently admitted she fell for the 22-year-old hunk after she watched his latest movie, in which he plays a vampire. She said: “I saw ‘Twilight’ and I have to say that I think Robert is a beautiful man and an amazing actor. He’s fabulous!”
Twilight star Robert Pattinson wasted no time departing Los Angeles after presenting at the 2009 Academy Awards on Feb. 22. Rob was spotted catching a departing flight from LAX Airport on Feb. 23—less than 24 hours after he took the stage on Hollywood’s biggest night.
Pattinson, who had attended the Oscars and several glittery after-parties the previous evening, rushed through security in dark shades and clothing as he left Tinseltown.
The 22-year-old British heartthrob is likely heading back to his hometown of London. He has previously stated that he doesn’t feel entirely at home in the States.
“I haven’t moved [to L.A.] for good,” said Pattinson. “I live in a rented apartment where all of the furniture is rented.” The Twilight sensation has skyrocketed to international stardom overnight, thanks to the vampire romance’s runaway box office, but he insists he’s still just a regular guy at heart.
“I miss being able to go for a walk,” said Rob. “I miss the smell of London…I almost cried because I missed it so much. And I miss my dog [Patty, a female West Highland white terrier].”
Meanwhile, Pattinson is gearing up to start shooting New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, in March. Filming is expected to take place in Vancouver and Italy. New Moon hits theaters on Nov. 20. In a stunning turn of events, Eclipse, the sequel to New Moon, will be rolled out just seven months afterward. June 30, 2010 is the scheduled release date for Eclipse, film studio Summit Entertainment has confirmed.
Chris Weitz, who is directing New Moon, will not be helming Eclipse, since he’ll be doing post-production on the film just as pre-production begins on Eclipse. A new director for Eclipse has not yet been named.
For his part, Pattinson is taking prepping for the shoot in stride. “It’s weird, because they are shooting it in a different city [than the first film],” he says. “I’ve talked to [Chris Weitz] a bit, but we’ve only talked about my character; I haven’t really talked about the whole look of it.”
When asked which scene he’s looking forward to shooting the most, Pattinson jokes: The part where Edward dumps Bella. “The scene where we temporarily break up,” he says. “On one hand, it’s completely impossible. And on the other, it sets a very different tone to the series. I think it will be good.”
Meanwhile, Pattinson can enjoy some peace and quiet before Twi-mania revs up again. Dealing with overnight stardom has been overwhelming for the young actor.
“I was laughing in the car on the way over here [to the Academy Awards],” Rob told Ryan Seacrest on Oscar night. “[Fame] is completely ridiculous.”

The pair – who have been pitted against one another ever since Rob was catapulted onto the A-list courtesy of his role in movie phenomenon Twilight – posed on the red carpet at the glittering event in identical tuxes.
Zac had slicked back his locks old-Hollywood-style for the ocassion, while Rob went for a more casual look – although, he had shaved off the beard he’s been sporting in recent weeks.
The High School Musical hottie lapped up the attention as he posed for pictures outside the Kodak theatre with girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
Rob on the other hand didn’t spend long on the red carpet – perhaps he was anxious about presenting an award on stage with Amanda Seyfried?
A year ago Robert Pattinson would have never thought he would be invited to the Oscars – let alone be on stage.
He found introducing a montage of romance scenes quite stressful.
Rob told E! shortly before the ceremony: “I did a rehearsal and messed it up. I am probably going to be the letdown of the entire show.”
We don’t think Rob should have been so hard on himself. He did a fantastic job.
We thought it was really funny when he said: “I had to become a vampire to find the right woman.”
It’s just a shame that Kristen Stewart didn’t get the chance to be there with him.
We love Amanda Seyfried but Kristen should have been presenting alongside her onscreen lover.

Reports that “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson would appear at the 81st annual Academy Awards were confirmed as the actor took to the red carpet and then the Kodak Theatre stage on Sunday night to present a montage of romance scenes.
Pattinson introduced the clips alongside “Mamma Mia!” actress Amanda Seyfried, confirming his current breakout status and watching a brief cut to “Twilight,” which was included in the retrospective alongside “The Wrestler,” “Iron Man,” “High School Musical” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”
“It’s insane,” Pattinson told MTV News in an exclusive interview from the red carpet before the ceremony. “When they first told me about this, I was like, ‘No, no, no, no, no, you’re joking — or I’m going to have to do something really stupid like get gunged [slimed]!”
Pattinson appeared to be taking in all the excitement surrounding him at his first trip to the Oscars, ready to make the most of his newly found spotlight. “I don’t know what to get out of it,” he confessed.
Pattinson arrived in true Oscar fashion, sporting a sleek, standard black tuxedo and wearing his grown-out hair lightly tossed around with a subtle patch of scruff on his chin.
Once onstage, the actor spoke briefly with Seyfried about the subject of love in film. The pair recalled the prevalence of romance in popular film, dating back through 1927’s “Wings,” the first movie to win a Best Picture Oscar when the awards were presented in 1929.
“What it is, how to get it, how to keep it and what to do when it goes incredibly wrong,” Pattinson listed among the perspectives on love that have been addressed over the years on screen. As recent participants in unique romance tales, he and Seyfried noted their own contributions. The London-born star touched on his specific plight as Edward Cullen in “Twilight.”
“I had to become a vampire to find the right woman,” he joked.
