Robert Pattinson wants to "strangle" whoever invented the nickname R-Patz.
The actor dislikes the famous moniker bestowed upon him by the media, which has been adopted by fans all over the world.
The star is currently promoting his new movie Cosmopolis and explained in an interview that he gets annoyed when he sees publications using the abbreviated version of his name.
"When I got this part, every single article that came out was, 'R-Patz's struggle for credibility!' I don't understand who invented that thing, 'R-Patz.' I want to strangle them," he told British newspaper The Guardian.
Robert is not the only star who has been christened with a shorter version of their first and last name.
Jennifer Lopez started the trend when she became J-Lo and many others followed, including Kristen Stewart a.k.a. K-Stew and singing sensation Susan Boyle, who is known as SuBo.
The trend to merge a famous couple's names followed shortly thereafter, giving us Bennifer, Brangelina and TomKat.
But most stars aren't too keen on their nicknames, with Scarlett Johansson expressing her dismay at being called ScarJo earlier this year.
"Oh, it's awful," she told USA Today. "It's a laziness People can't actually say the whole name? It's just bizarre. So Cate Blanchett is not, like, 'CaBla'? Why is that? Why do I have to get stuck with [ScarJo]?"
