He likes us, he really likes it! Twilight star Robert Pattinson, currently doing a promotional tour for his latest film Water for Elephants, told MTV that Houston was his favorite city in all of the United States. He's not sure why, he says, he just had a lot of fun here.
"In America? Probably Houston," the British Pattinson said when asked (from a viewer's tweet question) his favorite city in the MTV appearance. "I love Houston."
That produced a surprised "Really. Why?" from the MTV host.
"It's just," Pattinson replied. "I don't know, I had a really good time there."
The idea that Houston's great, but in a surprising, can't-quite-put-your-finger-on-it way seems familiar.
We feel compelled to point out that although Pattinson spent time in Austin as well, that Texas city got no praise from the reclusive Brit. Point, Houston.
Check out the video evidence of Pattinson's H-Town love, which was first found by the Houston Press:
