Robert Pattinson, from the vampire saga Twilight, looks tired but smiles because he is promoting his new film Water for Elephants, and is ready to talk about everything but Kristen Stewart, who everyone says is the his girlfriend. All except for the fact that he does not want to even talk.

You must not be very smart to understand this: generally speaking, there are fates worse than to become a poster-boy forced to hide from fans within the walls of five-star hotels scattered around the world. And Robert Pattinson seems that it is quite clever. But it also seems that, personally speaking, his fate has not taken the right way. He is young (in May will make 25 years), has a lot of money, success, a job, the actor, that half the world’s envy and, potentially, all women want. Yet we see from a mile away that is not happy. And the reason, I believe, lies in the fact that it is smart enough to understand that it is not so special. He stayed with his feet on the ground on the neck and head while all around him went mad. That makes him a good person, but horribly alone. I’ve met a few weeks ago to promote the film Like Water for elephants.
Born in London in a normal family – his mother worked in a modeling agency, her father selling old cars – thought to be a great deal of international relations. The part of Cedric in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire came almost by accident, and the same for the role that would change his life: the vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight.
Water for Elephants is a romantic movie. “What attracted me is the historical period, the Great Depression, and the circus. It’s fascinating.” The fact remains that it is primarily the story of Jacob and Marlena. “;But even if at first you may think”; Now he arrives, he sees her likes her and run away together, but the story is more complex. Jacob does not want to take, it is only prepared to give. The best relationship that might exist. “
Could you have an affair with a married woman?
“Life is not black or white. There are married people who are togheter but they don’t marry , can we define it marriage? But there’;s one thing I never understood: why do people betray.”
He does not understand a behavior practiced by the majority of the population? “
“I understand the impulse, but not how you can maintain two long-standing relationships at the same time”. And though I realize that can happen to those who have children, I cannot undderstand young people who choose to have four girls at once. It must be a living hell, especially for the man.”
He doesn’t believe in betrayal. E in “love till death does not separate”, like in the movie?
“My parents met when my mom was 17 and my father 25, are still together and seem very happy. I grew up believing that we can be together all life. “

Water for Elephants: Life is a circus.
Wild animals, trains, dwarfs and acrobats. This is what Robert Pattinson’s life has turned into: a circus
It’s the time of the recession in the United States, during the 30’s in the XX century. The inhabitants of Weehaken, New Jersey, wear the clothes of the time: the men with hats, ties, suspenders and coats, the women with long flower print dresses; the children with crops and caps. The crowd maintains itself in expectation of the parade of the fabulous Benzini brothers’ circus, whose promotional posters announce it as “The most fabulous show on earth!” Everything would be perfect of the technicians and production team of a film was not walking on the same street, which break the illusion of a trip to the past.
This is the Water for Elephants set, film shot in the 20th Century Fox studios, in Los Angeles, under the direction of Fancis Lawrence (Constantine, 2005: I am Legend, 20007), and is one of the most anticipated productions of 2011 due to its appealing story of romance, based on Sara Gruen’s best seller (adapted by Richard LaGravensee), and above all for its stellar cast: Reese Witherspoon, Robert Patinson and Cristoph Waltz.
The story is centered on Jacob’s history (Pattinson), who, about to graduate as a veterinary, abandons his studies upon his parents deaths. Chance unites him t a traveling circus, where he will become sentimentally involved with Marlena (Witherspoon), star acrobat and wife to the abusive tamer August (Waltz), which will create a fiery love triangle.
Love him (teenage girls everywhere) or loathe him (their boyfriends), Robert “R.Pattz” Pattinson is apparently here to stay. With Water For Elephants out soon, he’s gearing up to star in Cosmopolis for David Cronenberg. Yes, you read that right. Yes, this may mean that you have to start liking him. Here’s what he had to say about his role.
“I’m just astonished that I’ve been cast. I’d read the script before and thought, ‘Wow, this is insane. But insane and difficult.’ And then, out of nowhere, my agent said, ‘Do you want to do it?’ I’d never thought about working with Cronenberg, but I’ve always loved his movies. It just never came into my head that there would ever be that opportunity.
“Y’know, there are so few auteurs left. The one thing that pisses me off about working in films is when you start a project and then, suddenly, two days before you start, there’s a massive rewrite to make an R-rated movie into something that’s PG-13, and it’s a totally different story. As soon as that line’s been crossed, you know you’re not making a movie anymore. You’re making a…a… fridge magnet. But with people like Cronenberg you know that, no matter what, there will be a movie at the end, and it will be solid and self-contained, and it’s not made for any other reason than it being a movie.”
Pattinson also confirmed that, as far as he is concerned there will be no further Twilight outings following the two-part Breaking Dawn which finishes the current series. And he swears that he didn’t know what he was getting himself into with Stephenie Meyer’s massive vampire saga.
“I thought at the time, with Catherine Hardwicke and Kristen Stewart, it was going to be an indie movie. It seemed really interesting: a teen vampire movie that was going to be like Thirteen and really serious. I had no idea it was going to be this big thing you’d get on Burger King hats.”
Water For Elephants is out on May 4, and the full interview with His Dreaminess is in the new issue of Empire, out Thursday.
