E! News originally reported that Pattinson was signing a three-year $12 million deal to shill for the French house’s men’s fragrances. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, a Dior rep denies that a contract has been signed and insists that those are only rumors. The rep didn’t comment any further, and Pattinson’s camp was unreachable — which just makes us think that something will happen down the road.
As excited as we were about R.Pattz’s presumably broody ads, we always thought he was more of a Gucci man himself. After all, he is BFFs with creative director Frida Giannini and has worn a handful of the house’s suits on the red carpet. He even turned down a contract with Burberry — perhaps holding out for Gucci?
Stay tuned, folks.
