Pattinson’s waxwork unveiled at Madame Tussauds


Fans of Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson swamped Madame Tussauds in the city of Blackpool on Tuesday to get their photo taken with the institution’s latest famous wax figure. The 26-year-old actor’s lifesized “likeness” was guarded by four extra bouncers- hired by Managers at Madame Tussauds- to stop frenzied Twi-hards from damaging the waxwork – which took four months and a staggering 150,000 pounds to create, reports the Sun. Tussauds’ wizards of wax even dressed the figure in Rob’s trademark suit jacket, jeans and skinny tie. The wax R-Patz will mingle with the likes of the Queen, Will and Kate and The Beatles in Blackpool until November – when the figure will embark on a tour of other Madame Tussauds museums around the world.
