Robert Pattinson Regrets Calling Adele a Slacker (Video)

Telling Adele that she needs to apply herself is "probably the most ridiculous thing I have ever said," Robert Pattinson admits

Robert Pattinson might be the very embodiment of perfection to millions of Twi-hards across the world, but rest assured: He's capable of making mistakes.

The "Twilight" star appeared on CBC Television's "George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight" this week to promote his latest film, the David Cronenberg-directed "Cosmopolis," and revealed an embarrassing moment when he insisted to "Rolling in the Deep" singer Adele that she could really make something of herself if only she'd show a little ambition.

Yes, that Adele. The one who earned six Grammys last year, and whose album "21" set several chart records.

"I had this argument with Adele, which is probably the most ridiculous thing I have ever said," Pattinson said of the exchange. "I was like, 'You know, you could really just reach for it!' And she said, 'You do realize that I'm the biggest-selling female artist ever?' For some reason, I decided to get into an argument with her about it."

Broaching the possibility that alcohol maybe, just maybe, could have been involved, host George Stroumboulopoulos asked, "How did that happen? Two o'clock in the morning somewhere?"

"Yeah, and then waking up kind of really, really regretting every word I said," Pattinson admitted.
