James Mottram of The Independent recently interviewed Rob and it is one of the better ones I’ve read in quite some time.   Rob talks about his new found fame and the craziness that surrounds him as well as on Salvador Dali and his struggles.  I am always interested to hear what Rob thinks about these topics and he doesn’t disappoint:

on Dali:

“Just hyper-consciousness and stuff… I guess I do relate to that quite a lot,” he mumbles.   What I really related to is this idea of ambition. Just being so concerned about being the best and being known for being someone important… he keeps continually forgetting that it doesn’t really mean anything at all. And I always found that idea interesting. But I think Dali has a lot of shame – and I don’t really have that!”

on himself:

“You can never be known for what you want to be known for … People will know you for whatever they want to know you for.”  

So true Rob, so true.   It’s also hard to disagree with James’ final comment that “for a 22 year old, Rob is surprsingly perceptive”.  What’s not surprising is that he is so grounded and unaffected by the fame.  These characteristics are just two of the reasons why he has won himself a legion of admirers.  The quotes above, for me, are further proof of that.  Thanks to our affiliate Robsessed.  You can read the full interview here.

    Thank you for posting this Maria. I agree with you, Mandy this is definitely one of the few articles on him that has substance.

    Thanks for posting this, Maria! 🙂

    This is really one of the best, probably even better than the GQ one, in my opinion, or anyway right up there with it.

    “he keeps continually forgetting that it doesn’t really mean anything at all.”

    “You can never be known for what you want to be known for … People will know you for whatever they want to know you for.”

    To hear insightful words like these coming from a 22-year-old (who is also classified as a “celebrity”, dear me, I hate that word!) really gives me hope for humanity.

    With this interview Rob confirms once again that he is wise beyond his years and it’s a huge comfort, as it proves he is probably one of the few who has the inner strength to survive the lures and pitfalls of the entertainment environment. What a relief!
