Robert Pattinson Calls Fandom ‘Like A Virus’

‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson hasn’t had a break from all the fan attention. In fact, the actor recently commented at a fan party in London that the fandom was ‘like a virus.’

“We went to Japan earlier on in the year. There wasn’t that much of a reaction, but last week when we went again, it suddenly exploded, the same as here. I don’t know how, it just explodes so quickly. It takes seven months to take hold, it’s like a virus.”

Pattinson’s co-star Taylor Lautner also weighed in on the topic saying, “I’m stunned – I knew it was going to be good, but this is amazing. The fans in London are surprising me. It’s amazing to know we have this support behind us. It makes us feel like we’re at home.”
