Robert Pattinson may have been a bit freaked out about the prospect of presenting at the Oscars, but rumor has it that the “Twilight” star found the perfect way to unwind later Sunday night: by flirting with [movieperson id="165263"]Natalie Portman[/movieperson].
“[Portman] seemed really into him and went right up to say hello once she spotted him,” a Pattinson pal told E! Online after they were spotted talking to each other at the famed Vanity Fair Oscar Party. The friend added that “whiskey and Natalie Portman” helped the young star deal with his nerves.
Although Pattinson and Portman, who could possibly be a closeted Twilighter, were seen chatting it up at the party, Pattinson reportedly went home all by his lonesome (much to the relief of Team Edward members the world over).
“It’s insane,” Pattinson said of his Oscar gig on the red carpet, where he also discussed work on the upcoming “Twilight” sequels “New Moon” and “Eclipse.” “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]!”
The man who is better known as Edward Cullen represented “Twilight” alongside “Mamma Mia!” star Amanda Seyfried, where the duo presented a montage of romantic movies. “I had to become a vampire to find the right woman,” he joked onstage, demonstrating the difficulties of modern love.
