Artist Richard Phillips paints hottie Robert Pattinson for his “Most Wanted’ Exhibit in London. After all, Rob is one of the most sought-after young Hollywood stars. Girlfriend and co-star Kristen Stewart is also featured, but Rob was the biggest challenge.
Phillips dishes why he chose the “Twilight” hunk and why it’s difficult to capture his expressions. “It's that kind of knowing smirk or that sexy look in his masculine, yet feminine qualities that people die for that's a hard thing to grab,” he tells Hollywood Crush. Let’s not forget the sexy, messy hair he’s famous for. Those languid eyes. These are not easy features for an artist to get right. The three-day shadow is there too.
Phillips nailed Robert Pattinson with a painter’s trick. “Having the highlight in his one eye and no highlight in the other eye gives him that knowing look.” Perfect job.
