Robert Pattinson not eager for real groom role

Actor and constant Tiger Beat magazine centerfold Robert Pattinson talks a lot about weddings these days.

While doing interviews promoting the latest installment of the “Twilight” franchise, “Breaking Dawn: Part One” (which is sure to be the No. 1 movie in 2011 for teenage girls and unsatisfied wives), Pattinson is being asked over and over about the wedding scenes he filmed with co-star (and real-life girlfriend) Kristen Stewart.

“The groom’s role in a wedding … is just a prop,” Pattinson said at a press junket, according to People magazine.

Pattinson continued his train of thought that all women are crazy bridezillas and the men they are spending the rest of their lives with are meaningless by adding, “Any guy who tries to get involved in organizing a wedding or even has an opinion of what a wedding should be, then they’re kind of ridiculous. It’s whatever your wife decides to do.”

Guilty of party crashing

Lindsay Lohan continues to give crazy a bad name. The actress-turned-professional defendant crashed an afterparty for Leonardo DiCaprio’s new movie, “J. Edgar.”

Lohan, who probably couldn’t get into a tea party rally, let alone a movie premiere party, insisted to the security guards that she was invited to the party, but when that didn’t work she began dropping several other celebrity names in an attempt to weasel her way in.

“Eventually they let her in, but she made everybody uncomfortable,” a source blabbed to the New York Post. “She was aggressive and random, storming around. She tried to get to Leo, but he was surrounded by his security and a posse of his friends. Clint [Eastwood] and Leo and Dustin Lance Black were talking, and Lindsay sent one of her aides over, demanding to get a photo with them, but security shooed them away.”

Don’t fret, Lindsay. I’m sure after your “tastefully done” Playboy magazine photos come out, you will be invited to every awesome party. I mean, look what posing for Playboy did for Anna Nicole Smith … oh, wait.

Any publicity good for Ratner

“Tower Heist” director Brett Ratner is a class act. Just kidding. He’s a well-known creepshow who directs movies that your brother thinks are pretty cool, but he wouldn’t buy them on DVD or anything.

This is why we should all feel bad for actress Olivia Munn, because she had sex with him. In her memoir about working in Hollywood, “Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek,” Munn writes in graphic detail about her rather unfortunate relationship with a big-time Hollywood director early in her career.

Specifically, she writes about seeing a “grown man in an oversized shirt holding his undersized manhood in hands glistening with shrimp fat.”

Now, of course Munn didn’t name names, but Ratner is such a publicity whore, he’s admitting that it’s him. “I used to date Olivia Munn, I’ll be honest with everyone here. But when she was ‘Lisa.’ She wasn’t Asian back then,” he said. “She was hanging out on my set of ‘After the Sunset,’ I banged her a few times, but I forgot her. Because she changed her name.

“I didn’t know it was the same person and so when she auditioned for me for a TV show, I forgot her, she got pissed off, and so she made up all these stories about me eating shrimp and masturbating in my trailer. And she talked about my shortcomings.”

Olivia Munn is the best work Ratner has ever done. Seriously, have you seen “Rush Hour 3”? No? How about “Rush Hour 2”?
