Complete HQ Scans From Robert Pattinson GQ Style Feature!

This isn't RPatts. But I'm gonna pretend it is...

Only a short blurb of intro here - not that more is needed! These are the HQ scans from GQ Style Magazine - sent to me by the very wonderful and generous Stan from Under My Edbrella. If you haven't checked her out, you definitely should! She even make a Twitarded song for us!! And Mini-Edward is up to some shenanigans today at her blog, re-enacting the NM trailer with a little help from some friends - hysterical! We love Stan...

And we LOVE LOVE LOVE this cover, even though it hides The Precious - it makes us think things that I can't even type while I am technically working. For the sake of full disclosure, I am actually sitting here in sloppy clothes and slippers being a poster-child for why employers shouldn't allow their staff to work from home - although just so you know, HR folks who follow my blog - and I know you;re out there! - I would have done this from the office because it had to be done. And you know it!

Without further adieu [click to enlarge - if all goes according to plan, you should be able to make these large enough to read - or slobber over... If not, I'll work on it!] -

  1. "Or it could be that the boy is just good looking."

    Love it. That was a really, really great article. Thanks!

  2. Right?! WTF - how can I be expected to work now??? Shit... I could barely blog! I was so excited when I opened the email from Stan that I could barely type! Which is why the short blurb I wrote has 237 typos (it's true! I counted!).

    : )

  3. It IS actually a really good article, too (see??? I don't just look at pictures - I iz wellz redz too!). Some pretty spot-on points about the appeal or RPatts...

  4. "..more than just eyes were moist.." That about sums it up!

  5. Hold up - is the cover actually Rob?!
    - Lorabell

    ReplyDelete
  6. @Lorabell - We're actually trying to figure that out! LOL. I think it is. I did a lip comparison and I'm pretty sure I see caterpillar eyebrows under that stocking but... I'm not positive!

    Whoever it is, I now have a new fantasy, thanks to that pic. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Sorry, no the cover isn't Rob, I just included it in my excitement because it had his name on lol! I'd never noticed it if the wonderful people in Borders hadn't strategically placed it next to the AnOther Man mag when I went for that.

    I did just say to STY in an email though that if anyone knows where I can buy one of those mask things, screenprinted with Rob's face if poss, then I'd be very interested in buying one for my hubby ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  8. @JJ: LOL You did a lip comparison? I bet you did! ;) Keep us updated with your "findings."

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Stan - we found scanning the face of a full size Edward works very well for a mask, lol.

    Regardless, that man on the cover makes me all squirmy. Yummy.

    @Meg - I totally did a lip comparison, lol. My coworker walked by and I have my nose pressed against the monitor with multiple Rob pics up. She laughed and said I have problems. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  10. The lips look...Robalicious!

    Lorabell NEEDS to be SURE because if she just takes a guess like a normal human being is allowed to, a bunch of angry twelve-year-olds are gonna come after her with pitchforks and torches (REALLY! we've seen it - it's ugly business...).

    : )

    ReplyDelete
  11. So Stan what's the scoop on the pic/cover image??? It id made from pics of RPatts like the interior stuff??? Twitarded minds want the deets!

    ReplyDelete
  12. PMSL! I can confirm that the cover pic is inside the magazine with the 'Reboot' story advertised on the front. Hope that keeps the pitchforks & torches away. Unless it's all a cunning disguise of course and it's actually another Rob story with an alternative 'Reboot' pronunciation of Robert???

    Have to say, the models don't have the stocking mask on for the rest of the photos and they look far better with it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. it is indeed a good article! i never put too much time to think if robert was like any other actor, marlon brando is not from my time and neither james dean, but they all look like represent something that lures us all. thanks for posting it!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Just re-read that and it's still garbled! Try again: The cover pic is not Rob, it's from a different article inside.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ok. What needs to happen is this:

    I take a laptop down to our 200 seat auditorium and fire that shit up with the projector. I can get it really big (haha). Then some really in-depth lip analysis can take place.

    If I lock the door and keep the lights out maybe nobody will catch me...

    ReplyDelete
  16. First of all Meg, I want in on that in-depth lip analysis meeting!!

    Great article!!' although like many written about our Rob, doesn't address his massive appeal to the non-teenage demographic. Not that I'm complaining - I don't feel a need to be represented. I'm just saying.

    Haha I like the way JJ and STY are tripping all over each other to get this out to us. Way to go gals!

  17. Just a thought, the mask could be just the thing for Taylor Lautner's next photoshoot to stop me getting those baaaad feelings when I look up from his bod to see that baby face...

    ReplyDelete
  18. I had no intention of actually reading the words, but it was actually really good. When I was a tween, Robbie Williams was the bad boy all the girls my age (and older) were panting after. Yeah, the mid-nineties was a bit of a bad boy dry spell...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm not taking any chances! If I see a guy wearing a pea coat trying to smoke a cig through the stocking-head while wandering around Vancouver, I'm going to do him dirty!! Or at least I'll be the one chasing him through the streets while wearing those fabulous fuck-me pumps and my Twitarded apron. Please, please, please don't send the guys in the white coats after me...

  20. ladies, you have finally done it..i had to go make an identity and make it all official. You have now offically brought another lurker over to the darkside...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Dear Mr. Bracewell,
    I’m in love with your literary writing skills and that you attempt to take a scholarly & psychological perspective to understand why Rob makes all women quiver. You had me at the blurb: “young, hot and slightly weird.”

    It takes me back to when Chris Weitz described Rob as having "a highly developed sense of the absurd," which I quote to myself occassionally to convince myself that Rob & I would totally work out as the next Ashton-Demi couple.

    Dear GQ Style cover editor:
    Why? Why would you cockblock your female readership like that? It’s just cruel.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The artwork was cool except it wasn't all Rob. The article? It had a few moments but who uses words like "shambolic?" IMO, the article over-intellectualizes Rob's appeal (except for the panties comment and the last line). Thanks bunches for sharing it though!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. @F-Kat: I have access to what is basically a movie theater every day at work. I keep saying I'm going to bring the movie in one Saturday and sit in the auditorium by myself and watch it, but now I'm thinking that maybe I'll just make a slideshow of Rob and watch that on the big screen instead. Everyone's invited!! BYOB! lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. I loved the 'coolly shambolic' description, now that would be a good user ID!

    @ Z Any Mouse - PMSL, that would certainly be a sight to behold, anyone trying to run in those babies, let alone with the apron!

    @ fanficzombie welcome out of lurkerdom :o)

    @ NeedsIntervention *whispers* it's not Rob on the cover :o(. Lol at your message to Mr B!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for posting the intereting article,

    Great artwork also.

    Can I get in line for one of the "rubber mask superimposed Rob's face thingies??" LOL

    ReplyDelete
  26. AHHH! I've been waiting to read this article.

    @Stan - THANK YOU for sending to Twitarded!

    @STY - THANK YOU for posting!!!

    Seriously, I'm so excited I can't type.

    Shit - between JJ's last post and all the comments, and now this post - I have gotten NOTHING done. Thank god my IT dept doesn't snoop on my computer....at least I hope they don't. I have visions of getting fired b/c of my Twilight obsession. I'm not joking!

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Twichotic - you think YOU'RE gonna get fired?! Welcome to the club - lol!! It's getting crowded in here, methinks...

    : )

    ReplyDelete
  28. and fine, fine i got all excited and thought it was rob on the cover.. you can't honestly tell me that they didn't want to dupe us - i swear they must have sent a pic of rob's lips to the casting/modeling agency and said "we need someone with these lips... no worries, we're covering the rest with a stocking..." - lol...

    once again, i am way too naive for my own good - i was like "LOOK! it's ROBBBBBBB!!! in a stocking!!! I saw it on the internets so it MUST be true!!"

    ReplyDelete
  29. Whoa! Did I totally just read that sentence from the article right (3rd page)?? "...in cinemas around the world, more than just eyes were moist."

    @STY & JJ - ok...come clean... you wrote this article, right?? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. "...in cinemas around the world, more than just eyes were moist"

    hahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Stan--Still, is it not the job of any cover editor to not tease--to never tease--Rob Lovers of the World with his name but not his face on the cover?
    I'm sure many o' lusty women are doing a CSI investigation. Those lost souls who haven't found the truth or Twitarded are zombies: is that Rob? Surely, it must be Rob. Eyebrows, lips--they'll never know and will be eternally lost. This is tragic. They'll be lusting over a second-class panty-hose-faced Maybe Rob.
    Let's face it, even now that I know it's not Rob, I'll still project, inexplicably, that it is. It's like Rorschach meets Twitarded Freud. (This is equally as tragic.)

    Don't think that those clever GQ editors are laughing their asses off this month.

    Is this not injustice worthy of pitchforks and riots?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I admit hadn't actually looked at anything apart from the Rob pages before, having now done so am considering a letter to them suggesting they change their name to JP Style - it's JawPorn a go-go in there!

    Also nearly got busted by hubby, I'd carelessly left it on the table, he spots the 'Where to bed a supermodel' headline and picks it up. He scoffed rudely at why I was buying it while he flicked through, disheartened that the answer to the supermodel question was not, apparently, one of the surrounding villages, but HALLELUJAH, failed to recognise the Rob pages or notice his name on the cover! Phew *mops brow*

    ReplyDelete
  33. @NeedsIntervention: "It's like Rorschach meets Twitarded Freud." XD That's awesome! And I'm projecting too. There's something strangely sexy about imagining RPattz like that...
    And I'm always in the mood for a torch-and-pitchfork riot. Bring it on!

    ReplyDelete
  34. @ Stan - I hope you take your fame and stay the awesome lady you are now. Please, please, don't go getting all wierd on us...er...wierder, I mean! LOL!

    I second JJ's post..."wait, there are words too?!" Wasn't going to read this crap while I could be mooning over some Robby Goodness, but then I did. More than just eyes were moist, indeed!

    Is it just me or does the cover pic remind anyone else of the upside down, spiderman half mask off kiss thing? Either that or a bank robbery, but that may just be because I work at a bank! But really, we should have known it isn't Rob since he's clean shaven...Love me some scruffy Rob...

    @ Twichotic - I thought the same thing briefly (JJ & STY writing the article!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. That author called Twilight a "highly intelligent" film! I'm not going to go into all the ways that is funny, especially in light of most of the comments on yesterday's JJ post. I agree with whoever said that this article over-intellectualizes Rob's appeal.(I'm too lazy to scroll back up through the comments, you know who you are.) I'm pretty sure that it has more to do with the fact that "the boy is just good-looking." Thanks for posting. I'm way too chicken to actually buy a Rob magazine for myself, or be caught reading it in the bookstore.

    ReplyDelete
  36. @ chiquitin517 - or to have your child wander away whilst drooling over said Rob magazine. *blush* It was her fault! Really!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks for the HQ scans! Been keen on reading the article and what it has to say, and I'm delighted somebody actually dissected the RPattz phenomenon. It's nothing new, as history dictates facts (from Dean to Elvis and Brando) but I digress even Rpattz himself never expected to tapped into a goldmine of cult celebrity status. His beautiful imperfections transcends and inspires (swoons) all of us. :)

  38. I am about to run out the door to a movie but OMFG I am loving that Rob collage art! That makes me want to go back to 9th grade art class and have all my collage art be of Rob---seriously! I am not sure how I feel about the content of the article--it was, ahem, rather wordy--perhaps it is my Friday night brain.

    Thank you for sharing this @Stan and JJ and STY. Happy Fondle Friday! Bottoms Up!

    ReplyDelete
  39. OK, so we're officially calling it non-Rob? *ducking pitch forks*
    Thanks gals!
    - Lorabell ;)

  40. mmmmm LOVE IT! good article, better pictures! *drooling*

    ReplyDelete
  41. OMG! They wrote about the fan fiction! And about teh slash fiction! But they didn't clarify that it was homosexual romance so maybe the secret is still safe in fandom.

  42. I swear to god, I'm going to get fired for reading this shit at work. lol. Also, i am loving those pics in the article, pretty snazzy.

    ANYWAYS. Awesome Post Ladies!

    ReplyDelete
  43. mmmm that cover *is* hot, but I could tell it wasn't Rob as the chin was a little too roundy/pointy, and not a jutting square of man-granite.

    the article was nice, and certainly hit on some of Rob's appeal (it *can't* be that he's simply good-looking, as, when I first saw a pic of him at the Twi premiere before seeing the movie or watching any of his youtube interview goodness, I thought "what a douche! yuck! bet he loves himself and thinks he's god's gift... *rant rant mutter mutter bitter crazy lady talk*). This attitude changed to one of just pure 'moistness' pretty damn quick.

    Rob's secret, like Brando (who I *also* thought was the hotness when young and non-bloatoburger) is the ability to do sexy-as-hell intensity (watch Brando in Streetcar Named Desire in that ripped t-shirt) and be a bit intellectual as well.

    He's gorgeous (but so are lots of guys - hey bondage head male model on the front of GQ, I'm looking at you), but he's also half sex god/ half well-read dork. Irresistable.

  44. Great article! Thanks for posting it!

  45. I loved the line in the article "more than just eyes were moist". That sums it up right there.

    Thanks for sharing this article. It was GREAT!

  46. Hopefully your not getting to sick of my almost-a-year-out-of-date comments - I promise I'm only commenting on ones I can't not talk about.
    Just wanted to say even though this was out last October I've never seen it! Ever - I'm not even new to the twifandom. (Jan09 is when I dicovered twilight). I really loved it, thankyou for posting itl. I think the artwork/photocolalge thing look fantastic and I really love enjoyed reading the artical itself.
