Twilight star and perpetual heartthrob Robert Pattinson recently met up with BlackBook Magazine at a club behind Papaya King in Hollywood to chat fame, juice, rumors and Kristen Stewart. In addition to revealing that he's on an "all-liquid diet," Silver Lake's most famous resident also explained that, before that whole vampire thing, he used to write love songs in front of places like LA's Bronson Bar. "Sometimes he took these songs to open mics at places like the Pig ‘n Whistle and the Rainbow Room to perform them in front of two or three performers, plus of course, the waitresses who, he says, became his only friends." Awwww. [BlackBook]
