Robert Pattinson: Kristen Stewart kiss; Burberry campaign diss?

November 9, 2010 |  9:01 am

Robert Pattinson turns down Burberry That Robert Pattinson has one busy mug -- a fashion brand wants it, and Kristen Stewart's been smooching it abroad.

For starters, the "Twilight Saga" star and Stewart gave fans a thrill when photos of the two kissing in character were snapped in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday. As Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, the pair shot scenes for the fictional honeymoon they'll enjoy in the film.

Elsewhere in the Pattinson realm, overseas reports from the weekend said Brit label Burberry approached the actor to front its menswear collection in an ad campaign -- reportedly offering $1.6 million.

The UK Mirror claims Pattinson refused immediately, claiming (no doubt by pounding his fists on a Nova Check conference table, "I'm an actor, not a model!").

Burberry remains mum on the offer. Emma Watson, another famous Brit who's in a global juggernaut film franchise, currently fronts Burberry's womens collection.
