Why Jack Whitehall Really Hates Robert Pattinson

Jack Whitehall Has Some Problems With His Old School Friend Robert Pattinson

It can't have been easy to be the other kid in a drama club with Robert Pattinson, and clearly a teenaged Jack Whitehall didn't take it very well. In this throwback clip from one of his stand-up shows, the comedian explains his hatred of Rob, who got all the big parts in school plays when they were students together at Tower House School in South West London. Throughout his career, Jack has joked about what it was like to live in Rob's shadow, and while he insists he says everything in jest, he did decide that offering Rob a role in the Bad Education film was probably a bad idea (the part eventually went to Jeremy Irvine). Luckily for Jack, losing those roles to R Pattz doesn't seem to have done him any harm, and his star is still on the rise. Check him out in the trailer for the Hollywood ensemble comedy Mother's Day, and then see proof that he and his gorgeous girlfriend, actress Gemma Chan are giving Rob and FKA Twigs a run for their money when it comes to cool British celeb couples!
