But he the networks steaming when the censors couldn’t get to the bleep button fast enough.
Pattinson was on stage with Chelsea Handler presenting the MTV Generation Award to Reese Witherspoon when he dropped the F-Bomb on live television.
While this is not a totally unexpected event at the MTV Awards, but the network was slow to catch it and it broadcast the F-word live on the East Coast feed. A network rep said,
"It was unexpected, and was a technical glitch in not catching it. It won’t be in West Coast feed or any repeats."
Robert was talking to Reese about their first movie together where Witherspoon played his mother and the director’s cut out many of his scenes.
When talking about their collaboration in “Water for Elephants”, Pattinson said, “In this movie I played your lover. I didn’t cut you out but I did f**k you.”
Witherspoon told the audience later in the evening that today’s young Hollywood actors don’t need to release sex tapes and nude photos to find success, and that “Being Good” is okay and said more celebs should think about that.
Kudos Reese, and congrats on the big award.
