Robert Pattinson, who we're told stars in movies about vampires, thinks Houston is the besting-est city in America!!!
Why? Here, verbatim, is why: "I love Houston. It's just, I don't know, I had a really good time there."
Well said, sir.
Pattinson, of course, came to town last year and spent much of a night in Notsuoh, playing music and hanging out.
The above clip is from the publicity rounds for Water for Elephants, so it's probably a little old. But it's new to us because, as we indicated, we don't have a Google alert set up for the latest Pattinson news.
His second-best city was Philadelphia, but he definitely doesn't like it as much as he likes us, because he didn't even offer one word of explanation, as opposed to the extensive 15 words he devoted to Houston.
