Robert Pattinson Hugs, Hangs Out with Fierce Five Backstage at VMAs
Rob's ready to mingle!
Robert Pattinson didn't just dash after his appearance at the 2012 Video Music Awards on Thursday -- he socialized backstage with all of the stars -- including America's fave quintet of gymnasts! Still coping with estranged girlfriend Kristen Stewart's cheating scandal, Pattinson appeared to be very friendly at the award show in Los Angeles.
MTV live streamed the "Talent Prep Cam" on USTREAM and Pattinson was spotted hugging each U.S. Olympic gymnast member of the Fierce Five -- McKayla Maroney, 16, Kyla Ross, 15, Gabby Douglas, 16, Jordyn Wieber, 17, and Aly Raisman, 18 -- and chatted with them for a few minutes backstage.
Looking handsome in an Alexander McQueen bomber jacket, Pattinson brought big smiles to the girls' faces as they shared a few laughs.
Douglas admitted to Entertainment Tonight in August that she has a crush on the Twilight star. "Yeah, I'm a big Twilight fan. I read the book like five times," she said. "I mean yeah, he's pretty cute . . . He's definitely my crush in Twilight."
The ladies also tweeted about their other celeb sightings at the award show, including Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Rihanna and others. "Had so much fun tonight at the VMA's with my girls it couldn't have been better!" Douglas tweeted. Ross agreed, writing, "Had so much fun tonight at the VMA's! Got to meet so many celebrities that I love."
Pattinson attended the award show to present a new trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 along with his costars. Noticeably missing, however, was his estranged love Stewart, who instead attended the Toronto International Film Festival that same night to promote On the Road.
