OMFG I cannot believe I’m typing these words, but “WE DID IT – WE MET ROB”.  It was a dream and the only sad part was that Lise-Lou, Jules and Suze weren’t with us.  And I told Rob we were from his Aussie fansite and his response was “Oh yeah they’re really great”.  Bwahahahaha I know he was just being polite, but you know what – he said it – we heard it – so it happened!   And guess what girlies – I told you I would not freeze up when standing face to face to Rob in fact you could not SHUT ME UP.  I’m still on a high – and will be posting the epic Photo Call pics from earlier today, but here’s some gorgeous Rob, wearing his amazing shirt, which I can tell you looked stunning in real life.  No actually I lie – I only had eyes for the scruff and so I didn’t really notice the shirt when it was 2 inches in front of me … true story.  Rob  is so softly spoken – what a gentle soul.  He is nothing like you imagine.  N.O.T.H.I.N.G.  Makes me appreciate his performance of Eric all the more.

    Seriously no words. To look at these knowing just a couple of hours ago I was looking at this gorgeous man up close. I will never be able to come down from the high. You are so right Maria, a gentle soul, so quietly spoken and oh so beautiful up close in the flesh!!! It truly was the stuff dreams are made of!!!!

    OMG what a truly epic experience which many of us are now living vicariously through you! I’m just catching up on the day so came straight to this site! He looked truly magnificent – another “Sydney Rob” fav!

    And he said it in that sweet gentle angel voice. I was right there! OMG

    Rob has honestly changed my whole perception of him, such a beautiful soul and I’m yet to see any photo that can do his aura justice. He radiates heaven. I swear to god I have no idea how we are still walking.

    I seriously still cannot find the words. To have Rob standing right in front of me, seriously best Birthday EVER. Nothing is going to top that EVER. He is the most beautiful & gentle soul on the planet. There really are no words in existence to do this man justice.

    Floating on cloud 9 & never coming down.

    So true Vertigo!!!!!

    Rob saying those words re: the site will be forever etched onto my brain. Plus the visual of his beautiful face & that sweet gentle voice.

    Welcome home ladies – so excited for you all that you got to meet Rob and all the time you still managed to keep us updated – group hugs and thank you to the gods for hearing our wishes 🙂

    My heart was beating so fast when I saw him, and I could not believe I was actually looking at his beautiful face for real …never thought I would be so lucky…and yes Maria I agree “Rob is so softly spoken – what a gentle soul.” A really gentle person also. I just can’t stop staring in disbelief that I actually have a picture with his autograph…now to find a nice frame and treasure it always. He looked beautiful in his suit, but I must admit he is smaller than I imagined…but just PERFECT! Pure PERFECTION!

    Maria, a huge thank you to you & your friends for making a cold & wet day so much fun. The photos you posted are amazing!

    Oh Ladies! We did it. The Holy Grail. Number 1 on the Bucket List. No matter how much I dreamt about it, I was not prepared for how truly beautiful and sweet Rob really is.

    @Vertigo – you are so right. Photos don’t capture Rob’s light. I am still dazzled. (And that is not a pun)

    OMG ladies!!! I’m so overwhelmed by your reaction that i swear my heart is Beating faster. Do you have any photos that you took?? Is any of you in the red carpet pics posted here? Apart from Jess of course. Well done Jess.

    Please tell us more, what did you tell him and what did he say??

    I truly hope there will be an Aussie prem for The Rover and I will make sure to be there.
    I’m so happy for all of you who had this surreal experience. Thanks for sharing despite the fact that I’m really jealous and sad that I didn’t go

    @ephie I took some pics ill sort through and I might post a couple but you will probably see some in a new banner

    I still have to process the whole thing and needless to say my brain is whirring and i can’t sleep

    We endured some horrendous weather but so worth it

    As for ROB, never imagined it would be any less than PERFECT!!! His voice aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!

    What a day! Was so much fun having you lovely gals to hang out with while we waited, impatiently, in the rain, for the god himself! You were right Maria, he was smaller than he was at WFE, and I’m happy to say that was my 2nd time meeting him! Hopefully won’t be the last either!

    It’s now Tuesday morning and I’m sure all of you lovely ladies are still on cloud 9. It will take you a few days to recover.
    I must say looking at all the red carpet photos it seems to me that Rob was in a happy, relaxed mood and that he enjoyed the close contact with the fans. He looks “comfortable”. I hope that’s the vibe that you got as well?

    @maria thanks for replying. I know I would not have been able to sleep either, but trying to relive the moment.

    Hahaha @Mrsmoxham – I know my Rob! And here’s the goatee we were talking about yesterday https://www.robertpattinsonau.com/2011/10/24/breaking-dawn-pt-1-paris-fan-event-hqs/ 😀

    Hey ladies – you’re all amazing & what a wonderful day, for you to finally meet the man you invest so much of yourselves in supporting. I’m catching up on all the news here this morning & have the biggest grin on my face, imagining you all there, wow. Like Georgie2112 said, most of us need to be content living vicariously through your experiences, so thank you so much for sharing with us. Just so happy for you. (and what a birthday present, Michelle) @Carmel, doing a little happy dance for you too. xx

    Actually @ephie he seemed really nervous and it’s very obvious he doesn’t feel comfortable in big crowds – or that’s how it felt to me.

    Just shows that you can’t believe or know exactly what’s happening from a picture that captures a moment in time.

    I can’t stress enough what a gentle soul he seems – he truly is an English gentleman

  • Ephie

    @maria, Well what do you know? I would never have guessed that so you are absolutely right – a picture never tells the full story. Of course I know that, but just looking at the pics of him with the fans he seems so relaxed…but there you go. Thanks for yet another insightful observation. Of course that makes me admire and love him even more because he tries to spend sooo much time with the fans on the red carpet when it is obviously outside his comfort zone. Oh Rob…you are a gem, a rare diamond only found once in a million years.

    And do I have to say that after reading your last sentence my heart melted a little more? No I don’t think I have to – you would have guessed it. How I wish I could have witnessed it…

  • Maria
    Posted on October 23, 2012

    @ephie that’s how it seemed to me anyway – @Vertigo and @Michelle might have a different perception. LOL @Vertigo will probably tell you he just had that reaction to me hahaha. I do tend to make people nervous *giggles*

    Joking aside – Rob may get a lot of criticism from some, but he truly came out when it was still raining, probably spent more time than he should have on the carpet and he seems to honestly try to please everyone IMO.

  • Michelle
    Posted on October 23, 2012

    I definitely agree with what you said Maria, Rob did seem nervous on the carpet & not at all comfortable in the big crowd. Definitely seems like it is something that is outside of his comfort zone but YES, he really is so beautiful with everyone. Definitely tries his very best to please everyone & is so accommodating. Just watching how lovely & gentle he is with everyone was absolutely mesmerising. It’s really hard to put into words how gentle, sweet & kind he was. As Vertigo mentioned in a comment last night, he radiates heaven. Oh so true.

    Thank you so much @michelle for you input as well. And that phrase by Vertigo?? OMG!!!! It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard “he radiates Heaven….” Only Rob could inspire such a feeling.
    Thanks for sharing all this girls. Reading your comments and reactions was nearly as good as being there myself.
