The Details interview with Robert Pattinson is his Mouseketeer Britney Spears moment.
Remember when Britney grew up very suddenly from Mouseketeer to "Hit Me Baby One More Time," and sent parents everywhere screaming to the exits to protect their little groupies?
Pattinson just did the same with the Details interview. He has gone from being the safe little fantasy for millions of pubescent girls to a dangerous leading man, talking crudely about vaginas, being hungover and hanging around with naked women.
Quite how the fan base will respond to the Details interview remains to be seen, but one can be certain the moms and dads who have indulged their little munchkins with Robert the scary vampire fantasies will find the new Robert hard to take.
He hates vaginas -- or so he said. "I really hate vaginas. I'm allergic to vagina. But I can't say I had no idea, because it was a 12-hour shoot, so you kind of get the picture that these women are going to stay naked after, like, five or six hours. But I wasn't exactly prepared. I had no idea what to say to these girls. Thank God I was hungover."
God, what will mom and dad make of that? It's even more brutal and direct than what Britney did and what Miley Cyrus is clearly threatening to do.
Robert at least is signaling loud and clear he's tired of being the teen idol and he wants to become a leading man. He sure picked an interesting interview to do it in .
