Now that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2 has finally premiered, the question on the tip of everyone’s tongue (aside from whether Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s reconciliation will prove to be a real romance or a “show-mance”) is just what will the stars of the blockbuster series do next. While new movie projects that push Pattinson far outside his Edward Cullen comfort zone seem to be the obvious answer, he has something even spicier in mindÂ—and it has nothing to do with the big screen or even with 50 Shades of Grey.
As The Sun reports, when Pattinson was asked who he would swap places with for a day, one would think his answer might involve British royalty (say, Prince William for one) or another hot-to-trot actor like Daniel Craig a.k.a. James Bond. No sir! Pattinson rather humorously had something more unexpected and far less urbane and star-studded in mind that was whetting his ambition appetite. He replied unequivocally, “Someone who works at Nando’s.”
Pattinson is apparently a fan of the PERi-PERi-chicken-serving restaurant chain that dishes up near-legendary incarnations of the spicy, flame-grilled Portuguese-style bird.
Aside from his sizzling trips to Nando’s, there probably won’t be any hot 50 Shades of Grey movie action for either Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart. Although both of their names were bandied about at one time for the film adaptation of E.L. James’ risque book, they’ve been replaced by other fan favorites. But the British heartthrob with the taste for spicy chicken has cheekily admitted he’s not even gunning for the roleÂ—he’d obviously rather mess about in the Nando’s kitchen for 24 hours, or perhaps star in the spoof, Fifty Sheds of Grey.
