Says pop prince is "all right"

Perhaps one of the only remaining Justin Bieber supporters out there, Robert Pattinson stood up for the troubled Canadian pop star, saying, "He's all right."

Justin Bieber may be running out of celeb allies, but at least he still has Robert Pattinson on his side after the British actor came out in his defense.

The British hunk is currently at Cannes to promote his two latest films, Maps to the Stars and The Rover, and ran into Bieber while at the famed film festival. Pattinson has actually met the Canadian native several times before and he surprisingly doesn't have any ill feelings toward the law-breaking singer.

"I've met him before, though, on his party bus," Pattinson told Vanity Fair magazine. "I've met him a couple of times. He's all right."

But, referring to his movie Maps to the Stars, Pattinson also spoke about child stars in general and how fame can affect them in such negative ways.

"When you see these kids, there is only one way: You either get in therapy now or become a serial killer, or you kill yourself," Pattinson said. "I mean, you can see it really early on — it's terrifying."

While the 28-year-old actor did star in Harry Potter when he was only 17, "Nothing really happened after that." Pattinson admits he made "loads of money compared to anyone my age," but he wasn't well-known then. He only went on to star in a couple TV roles before he landed his legendary role in Twilight.

Luckily for him, Pattinson didn't really enter the world of fame until he starred as the iconic sparkly vampire Edward Cullen at 21 years of age. So, he was able to live a normal life from the pivotal years of 18 to 21. "It's different because you're still young, but you've had a life beforehand. Whereas if you are 10, it's a totally different thing."
