Washington: Robert Pattinson and Andrew Garfield resent being recognized for their similar qualities and hate being compared to one another.
The two were even spotted ignoring each other at the wedding party of their producer friend Kevin Turen recently.
“The truth is, Andrew can’t stand Rob. Andrew hates that they’re put in the same category because they’re both English and around the same age,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling UsMagazine.com.
“They don’t enjoy hanging out. Andrew considers himself a ‘serious actor’ and sees Rob as the equivalent of a cheesy boy bander because of ‘Twilight’.”
According to another source, the Hollywood rivalry between the vampire saga heartthrob and ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ star is even more intense because they apply for the same jobs.
“Both like intense parts and go after the same roles. They’re just naturally competitive,” the insider said.
