Robert Pattinson had social media in hysterics after his profile in GQ was released - and he ended up blowing up a microwave while talking to the interviewer on FaceTime. Robert was attempting to demonstrate an idea he had on how to make takeaway pasta by inventing a holder for it, named a 'Piccolini Cuscino' or 'little pillow' in English, only to explode his microwave after putting foil in it.

Robert exploded the microwave at his Airbnb

The section of the interview reads: "Proudly he is walking back toward the counter that his phone is on when, behind him, a lightning bolt erupts from the oven/microwave, and Pattinson ducks like someone outside has opened fire. He’s giggling and crouching as the oven throws off stray flickers of light and sound. 'The [expletive] electricity…oh, my God,' he says, still on the floor. And then, with a loud, final bang, the oven/microwave goes dark. In the silence, Pattinson and I both stare at the mysterious piece of machinery built into the wall behind him. ‘Yeah, I think I have to leave that alone,' he says, sighing again, picking himself off the floor. 'But that is a Piccolini Cuscino.'"
