Robert Pattinson and Andrew Garfield hate being compared to one another
The British actors - who spend much of their time in the United States - reportedly resent being recognised for their similar qualities.
A source told website UsMagazine.com: "The truth is, Andrew can`t stand Rob. Andrew hates that they`re put in the same category because they`re both English and around the same age."
Apparently at the wedding of their producer friend Kevin Turen last month (23.06.12), 26-year-old Robert and 28-year-old Andrew spent much of the night ignoring each other, according to a witness.
The observer added: "They don`t enjoy hanging out. Andrew considers himself a `serious actor` and sees Rob as the equivalent of a cheesy boy bander because of -Twilight-."
A third source added that the Hollywood rivalry between the vampire saga heartthrob and -The Amazing Spider-Man- star is even more intense because they apply for the same jobs.
The insider said: "Both like intense parts and go after the same roles. They`re just naturally competitive."
Robert recently admitted to getting into an altercation with pop star Adele in February.
He explained: "I had this argument with Adele, which is probably the most ridiculous thing I`ve ever said.
"I was saying, `You know, you can really just like reach for it,` and she was like, `You do realise I am like the biggest-selling female artist ever?`"
He continued: "And I just for some reason just decided to get into an argument with her. I woke up the next day really regretting the whole thing."
