The one where Heather meets Rob

Dear Rob,

I often think about how I will meet you someday. I’ve even starting compiling a list of what TO DO and what NOT to do on that magical day (for example, I will not mention Twilight even once nor the fact that I run a blog about you. That will be my little secret. But I will ask for a cigarette and then we will smoke together)

For the past few weeks Moon & I have had 3 virtually “unseen” pictures of you on our computers-we’ve hoarded them like they were the crown jewels or something- only showing them to the friends we love best. We felt pretty special that they were sent to us- one of our wonderful readers, Heather, sent us her first-hand account of meeting you (AND WE ARE SO JEALOUS) and the pictures along with it. She has graciously agreed for us to share her story on the blog, and we have begrudgingly agreed to allow other people access to these pictures, although now we’ll feel much less special.

Can’t wait until I have my very own pictures of you and I to hoard,
UnintendedChoice xo

My story of how I met Robert Pattinson

I was online browsing various sites for Twilight news, and I saw a contest on Ryan Seacrest’s website to win a trip to L.A. for the Twilight premiere. The contest was scheduled to end on Friday November 14th and it was Thursday November 13th. I decided what the heck. Why not enter it, knowing full and well that I wouldn’t win it. I never win anything.

So I filled out the form and submitted it. I have a horrible internet connection and had to fill out and submit the form several times before it finally went through. (Thank God I am persistent) I get up on Friday and go about my day as usual. I am on the computer browsing again when my cell phone starts ringing. It says “Restricted”. I usually ignore those numbers but something told me to answer it. When I did, a voice comes on the line and I immediately recognize it. It is Ryan Seacrest! I knew why he was calling. He told me I won the contest and would be flying out on Sunday to L.A. (I am from NC and have never flown before then.)

So we fly out to L.A. and stay at the Hotel Angeleno. In the hotel elevator I meet several girls who are there for a TwiCon event at a bookstore in L.A.

On Monday night we are driven to the Twilight premiere. (insert note from UnintendedChoice- the PREMIERE! OMG! You could have stopped there and the story would have been amazing- but NO.. it has to go and get even better!) My husband and I get out of our car, and I just stand there taking it all in. I turn around to see who was in the car behind us and it is Jackson Rathbone.

While waiting in line to get into the theater I spot Peter Facinelli and his wife Jenni Garth. We are rushed into the theater to wait for the movie to start. I began to hear all sorts of yelling outside and immediately know why- Rob has arrived. They won’t let us leave the theater to go back outside, though. There were several people upset by this, but I just kept thinking “Wednesday morning you will get to meet him one-on-one. It will be OK.” So we watch the movie, which was amazing to see with so many Twilight fans. They all ooohd and ahhhhd at the right moments and were quiet at the right times.

Then Wednesday morning comes: I wake up early and turn on the hotel radio and listen to Ryan’s show while getting ready. I was so nervous. The driver comes and picks us up and takes us to the studios. I get out and see lots of girls lined up outside. As the guards lead us in I immediately began to feel eyes boring into me. We go inside and wait for Rob to arrive. Ryan comes out and takes a few minutes to talk to me and my husband and we get a few pictures. Rob has to do his interview with Ryan before I get to meet him. All of the sudden there is alot of commotion, and I see several people walk by near me and then……Robert Pattinson.

Two things: The beanie *swoon* and check out the size of his hands!

I almost beat the crap out of my husband’s arms. He forgot to turn the camera on and missed that pic opportunity. (note from UC- immediately fire your husband, thanks) Well, then we had a chance to listen to his interview with Ryan. So then, I know it is over. He is coming to meet me. When I see him round that corner and he starts walking toward me, I felt a little like Bella Swan, I totally forgot to breathe and almost fainted. LOL. I was shaking. I say Hello to him, and he shook my hand.

The first thing he said to me was “Are you English?” I guess I must have said Hello in a weird way or accent. I say no and he laughs. He takes a picture with me and has his arm around me. (God Bless my husband for being so understanding of my fangirliness) He then asks me how long I have been a fan of Twilight. He asks me what all I had done in L.A. so far. 

octnov2008-0421

Okay this is too freakin' adorable. I hate and love you all at the same time, Heather

I told him that we went to the premiere and he asked me how I like it. I told him that I loved it and he told me that he didn’t even stay at the premiere to watch it and that he hates watching himself. (note from UC- wow! I didn’t know you were ‘allowed’ to leave your own premiere!) (During this whole conversation he is leaning on the table and listening intently) 

I hand him my books asking him to sign them. I beging to panic realizing I don’t have a pen and being asking anyone in the room if they have a pen. “Pen Pen anyone have a pen?” I then hear laughing coming from Rob and he begins to mock my Southern Accent in a high pitch voice saying “Pen, Pen, Pen” and laughing. It was wonderful. ❤ So he signs my books. He really looks like he doesn’t want to leave but he is flying out of L.A. to New York because the next morning he is scheduled to be on the Today Show. He then tells me goodbye and says I would tell you to enjoy the movie but since you have already seen it I won’t, all the while smiling that wonderful smile. I tell him that I plan on seeing it more and he laughs.

And then Rob & I went into Ryan Seacrest’s office where, with one quick swipe of his hand, he cleared off from his desk all the pictures of Ryan and celebrities he thinks he’s friends with but who hate him in actuality and threw me down on it- having his way with me with his lips. Er.. sorry. That wasn’t part of Heather’s story. That was part of MY fantasy of meeting Rob at the Ryan Seacrest show (my fantasy ends with both of us punching Ryan in the face)

Thanks Heather!!!

  1. Lessons learned…enter every Twilight contest possible that ends with you winning an opp to meet Rob!!

    Really, we’re just doing Rob a favor by saving him from all the tween girls who enter those things.

    Also, love that your hubby was so supportive. My guy gives me a lot of crap, but I know he’d stand there and take the pics…then kindly find something else to do while I excused Rob and myself to the nearest broom closet!

  2. This has been a weird week starting with a major high seeing how Rob dazzled everyone at the Oscars and the after-parties, feeling slightly miffed at the apparent/oblique dissing by Kristen Stewart’s dad, happy again at the sight of Happy Rob in Tokyo, being pissed to find out that Paris Hilton flew to Tokyo as well (WTF!).

    But happy to read this post because it confirms what I like most about Rob – really charming, sweet, sincere & genuine to everyone — not to mention wickedly funny.

    Looking forward to the rest of the week c/o the Tokyo publicity events.

    My first post here! You gals are funny. 🙂

    • it really has been an up-and-down week emotionally, huh? well, GLAD that it made you post today! And you’re right- after all is said and done, Rob just seems like a genuinely GREAT guy!

      • Hi UC & Moon! Thanks so much for the welcome! Amen – this week certainly feels like a roller coaster ride and I hope it will close on the UP with hopefully happy pics of Rob in Tokyo. Sounds like he’s having fun … reportedly he & Hugh Jackman got together with friends to do KARAOKE! Oh, to be a fly on that wall. Our boy has seriously joined the BIG leagues.

        Just wanted to share this radio interview with you. I think you will love it too because:

        a) Rob is funny as hell
        b) His interviewers – from The Ladies Room program in Seattle (who were not Twilight fans) – were funny too and they obviously were charmed by Rob (who can resist?)
        c) Loved how they called him out on always saying his fan base consists of only tween girls (he finally admits that it isn’t true – don’t we know it?)
        d) you finally get to hear Rob say the words that we dream he will say to us “I WANT YOU”

        It is seriously hilarious. Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLlxN3Wi7hw&eurl=http://lj-toys.com/?journalid=15875550&moduleid=499&preview=&auth_token=sessionless:1235728800:embedconten

    • @twihigh – WELCOME!! hang on the roller coasters just getting started i think!

  3. Sigh. I REALLY want to read this!! Dammit. Unfortunately it looks like we’ll be in ‘crisis mode’ at the office for the rest of the week. I am so sad beyond belief. I can’t wait until I have time to come back and read this Heather… just from the pictures though, I must say – I hate you. But of course by ‘hate’ I mean ‘love’ because I am so jealous.
    That’s all. Gotta run.
    Like I said yesterday, don’t have too much fun without me… anddontusethereplybuttoninthecommentsCOUGH.
    Have a great day everyone!!

  4. @UC – of course my “anddontusethereplybuttoninthecommentsCOUGH.” comment was not directed toward you or Moon. Forgive me. 🙂

  5. That was awesome, thanks for sharing it with the rest of world. The pics are awesome and now I am going to go re-start my heart with my portable crash cart I just purchased this week due to my irregular heartbeat that Rob gives me.

  6. @JBell – We’ll miss you!!

  7. OMG!!!! That was amazing. I had to read it like three times before I could get it all in.

    YOU MET ROBERT PATTINSON!!!!!

  8. Heather – I am SO jealous of you and I will never again ignore those contests thinking I’ll never win. I need a cigarette just thinking of the possibilities of being. that. close. Thump.

  9. Jealous doesn’t begin to describe what I feel right now. If only I was so lucky….*Sighs*

  10. Um…..Why does Seacrest have a picture of Paris Hilton in his stuido?? That just shows how much of a douche he is.

  11. Heather is one lucky biatch! I totally love/hate her now. I’m in the deep south too and to know that Rob would dig my accent…swoon. Can he be more lovely?

    Jbell – Screw the real life job! Don’t they understand that Rob stalking is a full time gig? Come back to us honey.

    Amber – I need Twitter lessons. I guess I should go sign up huh?

  12. Aw Heather – thanks so much for sharing your story and piccies.

    @UC … I do love your own postscript to the story!

    Right, off to surf a bit and see if there is any info out there.

  13. Heather is my Idol. I am so envious! It made me think of what it would be like if I met rob. Actually it would be like most of UC’s fantasy. But, I know that he would make fun of my southern accent now while we’re going at it.(sigh)And those hands….OMG! Well at least we know what else is big 😉

  14. Enjoy ladies…

  15. @therealrobzilla – I posted my how-to guide to Twitter this morning on my blog. Just click my name and it’ll take you there.

    Of course, I concentrate on creating a Twitter account that will feed your Robsession, of course.

  16. Yes, I did need two “of courses”. Where is that coffee?!?

  17. Thanks Amber. I will head over in a few. Must change baby’s diaper. Damn, that kid stinks. What is her mom feeding her?

    Carrie – I see several RobCrotch worthy pics in that link above!

  18. I’m sitting here spazzing! WOW, Heather! WOW! That’s an awesome story and it just seems to confirm what we all think of Rob already – that he’s simply the best! Thanks so much for sharing it with all of us.

    Paris Hilton makes me want to vomit everything I’ve eaten for the past month! She’s vile and repulsive and I’m really struggling with how to adequately describe how much I loathe her and her undignified pursuit of Rob. Could she be more ridiculous? I just pray that he can see through her. She makes me seethe with rage. I feel like screaming at him, “Anybody but her! KStew would be a huge step up from this tramp! Seriously. Anybody!”

    @JBell – Don’t tell UC, but I’m with you on this “reply” shtick. And we miss you! Hope work calms down soon!

  19. (bows down on both knees, arms gesturing up and down, forhead to floor)
    Heather, we’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!!

    You are a Godess!! THANK YOU for sharing that! OK, what did he smell like? Does he really seem taller than he looks? Did you get a glimpse of the “package” area? How big are his feet really?
    DETAILS PLEASE!!!

    OMG, what a great way to start my day! Like JBell, I am going to be very busy, and mostly absent from here today 😦

    And EVEN WORSE, I’m going to a 4 day workshop tomorrow, and may not be here much at all till Sunday night! Whaaaaa!!! It’s supposed to be a spiritual development, meditation, going-inside-oneself type of deal. How the HELL I’m going to concentrate on my inner being when I’ll be have ROB WITHDRAWALS!?!?!?!

    This’ll be me: Sitting in Lotus position, Ohhhmmmmmm……oooohhhmmmm…….eyes rolled up focusing on third eye……ooohhhmm….ooohhmmmm…..eyes open look up at clock, wonder when I can sneak to my hotel room to hop onto laptop and check in at LTR……ooohhmm……ooohhhmm……..wondering if Rob is eating a lot of sushi in Japan……..hope Rob is not eating a lot of Japanese girls in Japan……ooohhhmmmm…..It’s no use. This workshop is getting in the way of Rob and LTR TIME!!!

    PROMISE ME YOU GUYS WON’T FORGET ME!! It’s getting so crowded here, it’ll probably take me 4 days just to get through the posts that come in while I’m gone!!

    I’ll miss my buds!! JBell, Amber, Jena, Sass, Rhonika, TRRobzilla, English Girl, and OF COURSE UC and Moon!!

    Amber, I’ll have to check your twitter lessons out when I have a chance! I also need to figure out how to post a gif on my blog. Can’t figure that one out for the life of me, and it’s pissing me off!

    • we’ll miss you vogue! enjoy your quiet time thinking of rob spiritual meditating! Guaranteed it will take you a full 4 days to get through all the posts and comments when you’re back! XO

    • Yikes – 4 day workshop away from LTR – AGONY. Can’t you break a leg or something and get admitted to a nice comfy hospital bed for a week in traction, with nothing but a laptop and Mr R P in your mind to keep you company?

      ps … your posts (and my mind) are so not Twimoms are they!!!!! Must be our age (I fear that I am one of the older ones on this site as my last birthday, and one or two before that, began with a “4”. Boo hoo. But very young at heart – I got ID’d buying cigarettes last summer ha ha ha! Thankfully I have since given up again (it was just a stress thing), but I’ll kill for a ciggie with Rob ….

      • English Girl, I’m happy to know that I’m not the only “4” on this site! Yea!!! I love being in the presence of polished, mature and amazingly beautiful women who really know how to indulge their inner 15 year old girl! Isn’t it fun? 🙂 WOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!

    • Vogue you always crack me up 🙂
      You will be missed…..ohmmmmm…..

  20. @Vogue18 – We’ll miss you too!! Everyone is leaving me!! Wah!!

    When you are meditating, just keep those gorgeous Rob moments in your head, that’ll help you get through it all.

    @Steph – As much as I am not liking KStew (see LTT), she is definitely better that Paris any day of the week!!! YUCK!!

  21. @vogue-
    “hope Rob is not eating a lot of Japanese girls in Japan……ooohhhmmmm”
    hahaha you crack me up. But i guess im secretely hoping the same thing.

    Heather- you have no idea how envious i am of you. you lived my dream! thank you a million for sharing your story! and amazing pics too.

    btw JBell- i also agree with the reply stuff. comments were just all over the place.

  22. @TheRealRobzilla – THANKS for those awesome pics! Haven’t seen any like that at all!

    Am I alone in my DESPISING of Camilla Belle?

    I can’t figure out if it’s because I sense this “my shit doesn’t stink, I’m the cat’s ass and I can have any guy I want” vibe, or because I’m blind with jealous rage over the way Rob smiles when he looks at her? Maybe it’s a little of both?

    I see her as a real threat, not Poontang Hilton.

    Rob is highly intelligent and wants someone of similar caliber. Even if he’d been living under a rock and had no idea what a festering cesspool of bacteria and STD’s Paris Hilton probably is, he’s got plenty of protective people around him to fill him in (like Nick and Steph, his “training wheels” as I like to call them).

    But, Camilla is beautiful, great bod (look at her in that pic, she’s so slender and delicate, I want to snap her skinny ass in half), she’s a classical pianist, speaks fluent Portuguese, and is an exotic Brazilian (Rob seems to like the foreign girls).

    Every time Rob’s in L.A., she seems to be around him.
    LADIES!!! WHO’S GOT THE LIST???
    We need to add her to the list of “People we will END, Red Braid Girl Style”.

  23. Heather, thank you so much for sharing your story! I just love that photo where he is resting his head on his hands listening to every word you are saying, sigh oh sigh! How awesome!!! How did you not pass out?

    JBell, hope you have a better day and hurry back!

    JustGotWicked, after chatting with you via email, it’s good to see you! You have such a happy, pretty smile!

    Gals, if any of you find any youtube interviews, ect. from Japan, link those puppies here, I’m so excited to see new promos! WEEEEE! (btw, I scream WEEE when I’m really excited, LOL! I also do it when I think something is really cute, I usually scream it at my cat….ok, I’m weird)

  24. Heather I am so jealous that you got to meet Rob. That’s fantastic and funny that he mocked your accent. Its a good thing he’s super hot, he can get away with crap like that.

    @UC – Your addition to Heather’s story was hilarious and the sweeping of the stuff off the desk has been one of my fav fantasies with Rob. *gulp*

    @vogue – He said in a previous interview that he is really good friends with Camilla and has known her for a number of years. I just think he’s comfortable around her.

  25. Vogue, we’ll miss you! Have a great 4 days! I totally understand, withdrawls suck!

  26. This is Rob doing his ‘I know I’m hot as hell’ look. Oh, to be his piece of gum! *faints*

  27. @songirl – I have no evidence to support Rob as NOT being a good boyfriend. Seems like he would just be an awesome guy to be with.

    However, I’m not looking for a boyfriend so much as a boy toy. Ugh! Did I really just use that term?!? How about we sub “boy toy” for “big hunk o’ man meat”? Eh, not much better.

  28. I tihnk I shall have to have my family call me “Heather” today so that I might continue to live vicariously through her completely awesome life.
    Thank you for sharing all this, Heather! You managed to not make a fool out of yourself, so you’ve definitely got one up on me!

  29. Hugh Jackman was also on his flight to Japan, they showed it on Extra last night. They also showed Rob leaving an Oscar party in a taxi and talked to him more on the red carpet about New Moon and he said that all the cast additions (Dakota, Vanessa and AnnaLynne) are still rumors to him. Vanessa, on the red carpet, said that it would be awesome but she hasn’t been approached. Dakota (at a party, not on the red carpet) said she’s interested but hasnt’ heard anything yet. Rob said to Mario that the script is really good and that he wants to do the break up scene. Ashley said that she likes this script better than the first one, but said she’s biased because her part is bigger in the 2nd, LOL!

  30. Bak, mubha ldier
    words cannot express how adorable and freaking sexy he is. I can hardly handle it.

  31. i know someone mentioned to not be all in hizzy about Paris BUT i heard on the radio today that paris and rob have been secretly dating blah blah blah and did i see a blurb that she flew out to tokyo too??? for the love all that is holy! wtf.

    next, i would be willing to lead the mob to end that Camilla Belle chick. from what i’ve read, the wench thinks she’s a wonderful actress, with range and she dissed her first movie role because it didn’t show said range (10000 BC i think?), talk about biting the hand that feeds her! i seriously want.to.break.my.leg.kicking.her.ass.

  32. I think the media is blowing this way out of proportion and I always take these kinds of stories with a grain of salt. We all know he’s not secretly dating Paris. It makes me sad the stories that get circulated and how it’s announced before it’s even confirmed, LOL! Poor Rob. Lan go kick that dj’s ass to while you’re at it, LOL!

  33. Must have been like heaven….I wonder if she heard angels in the background??? I would do weird and unmentionable things to meet him… 😉

  34. I want to know if she picked up on what he smelled like? Cologne, no cologne? Am I even spelling cologne right? LOL!

  35. Oh, this is so lovely! This story makes my day — I am still so irritated over the latest KStew crap…

    And that shot of Rob, looking and listening? Swoooon…so that’s what it looks like to have Rob’s undivided attention??? I love how much it validates all of our opinions — Rob really is as nice as we think he is.

  36. Love this post! Lucky lucky Heather! Note to self- enter any and every contest I ever see about New Moon, premieres, and Rob!

    @Ceri- thx for that pic! His manager looks half asleep but Rob is a shining star!

    @Jena- thx for the info from Extra!

  37. I heard “Ebola” (love that moniker, btw) flew to Tokyo, too. I think that’s what bugs me the most. How friggin’ aggressive she is. Her arrogance is truly amazing. I trust Rob to have better taste, I don’t trust Ebola to leave well enough alone when she’s been politely dissed. As for Camilla, I’ll back Vogue and whoever else she wants to end. I think she’s got the hutzpa to do it. 🙂 Sorry you’ll be gone for a few! We’ll miss your spunk!

  38. @Lan – “next, i would be willing to lead the mob to end that Camilla Belle chick.”

    Sign me up for the lynching mob, Lan! I DO NOT like C*nt-milla Bella either.

    I actually did a reference to that very topic on my blog today, which is to be continued later.

  39. @Jena – Yes, we need to know how he smells. Hopefully not like that Axe crap they make guys believe women like….BECAUSE WE DON’T!!

  40. @Lan I too am freaking out over the Paris thing! I said I wasn’t going to but I keep thinking about it. Natalie Portman (or myself) would be good but not Paris. anyone but her.Ugh!

  41. umm…..I don’t know what I just did. But LTR just went full screen

  42. @Amber – That Laura chick from Mtv said he does smell like Axe deoderant. Hmmm…I wonder.

    I always think he would smell like soap and ciggs. Nice combo if I do say so myself.

    • I’m totally sniffing Axe then next time I make a Walmart run, LOL!

  43. Heather- I would like to borrow your life for a day. Just a day!

    @Vogue- We’ll miss you while you’re away! Have fun!

  44. I saw your pics on TwilightMoms….like months ago, and read your story heather. I didn’t know that it was a secret..hmmmm

  45. still it was great to read it again…and the pictures ain’t too bad either!!

    • @MRS P!!!! just wanted to say hi! feel like it’s been forevs! remember the “old” days?! 😉

      • yeah, when it was just like 5 of us on here….look at your little blog now!! 🙂

  46. @Vogue I didn’t know you had a blog. AWESOME!
    I tried to comment but it wouldn’t let me.

  47. Heather you are the luckiest of lucky girls! The premiere and meeting Rob, too! Not Fair! I’m sooo jealous!

    I’ve been upset all night thinking of Rob with Paris. And then to read she flew to Tokyo…NO!!! What a pariah.

    Please Rob, do be wise!

    OK, back to my fantasies….

  48. wOw how nice for you..you will never forget that time EVER..and as a side bar..Ladies don’t worry about Paris and Rob…we all “know” him much better than that…Rob and Natalie Portman now thats a diff story 😉

  49. How does he manage to look so sexy just leaning over a table?

    le sigh

  50. Yeah, I’m not buyin that crap for 1 second so definately no worries on my end.
