Tabloid tales: Pattinson knocks nickname; Jennifer Aniston is 'turned on by' Fifty Shades of Grey
A DISGRUNTELED Robert Pattinson has revealed that he is no fan of his 'R-Patz' nickname. The Sun claims that while promoting the latest Twilight instalment Pattinson said he "would like to break the hands and mouth" of whoever came up with the name. The actor, who has recently reunited with cheating girlfriend Kristen Stewart, or 'K-Stew', also expressed his distaste with the 'Team Edward' and 'Team Jacob' phrases fans use to refer to rival characters in the movies. He said: "It's making it like a sport or something. People can't really watch the films any more... they're thinking about all this other silliness."

Sombuntham's husband, Mawan, who co-owns the salon, said the procedure – which apparently erases wrinkles, shrinks pores, and tightens the skin without the need for surgery – "is very serious" and "definitely not rubbish".
