Cardi B Geeks Out While Meeting Robert Pattinson: 'I Felt Like a Teen'
Cardi B is living her teenage dream.
"Come on. Look at my friend, guys," she said to the camera as she fixed her hair before Pattinson, 35, leaned into the frame. Cardi screamed in excitement as the Twilight star stuck out his tongue.
The encounter took place Thursday at an event honoring British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, hosted in the Ai Weiwei-designed UTA Artist Space in Beverly Hills. Also in attendance were Gabrielle Union, Salma Hayek, Serena Williams, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Tracee Ellis Ross, Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber, Jesse Williams, and more.
Pattinson wrapped earlier this year on The Batman, in which he plays the eponymous Dark Knight, alongside Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, and Colin Farrell as Penguin. The movie premieres March 4, 2022 in theaters.
The exchange began when a fan posted a throwback video of the You star, 35, explaining why he admires people who are good at social media. "Cardi B is a great example of that. She has such an authentic relationship [with social media]," he said in the clip.
"OOOOMMFFFGGGGGG HE KNOWS ME !!! OMMMGGGG!!!!!! Yoooo like I'm famous famous," Cardi wrote in a quote tweet before Badgley responded with one of his own, writing: "I-" The pair has since changed their Twitter profile photos to images of each other.

The Gossip Girl alum later commented on the possibility of having Cardi appear in You season 4. "Well, I don't know," he said last week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "I mean, I definitely can't say, but there is actually, I believe, this is true. There's an actual Change.org petition."
Badgley also had a gift sent to the Hustlers actress, complete with a note that referenced her hit single "WAP" in the voice of his homicidal character Joe Goldberg. "Hello, you… My stalking and killing may make me a certified freak, seven days a week, but it also brought me to… you," the note read.
