The Mirror had quoted him as saying: "I don't have a girlfriend. I don't know why. You always think you're going to get more girls after you've made a movie and it never happens. “You sit there and you're like I'm a big movie star and I want to go out with some models but I don't know why that doesn't happen."
He reportedly added: "It's especially different in L.A. Most of the women there are actresses and by default that makes them a little bit nuts - not that that's a bad thing. But I don't really have a type. Whenever I get asked who my favourite celebrity crush is, I have no idea."
However, his publicist has now denied that the heartthrob made any such statement. The reps said: "I will only comment on matters regarding Robert's professional life, but in order to set the record straight, Robert did not speak to the Mirror, and their claim that they spoke to him a few days ago is manufactured along with any information that they claim to have as an exclusive directly from him."
In the recent past, Pattinson has denied reports that he is secretly dating Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart.
