Now I know why all women dream of Robert Pattinson …
Fate has bitten him. He’s ‘crookedly’ beautiful. Sleepy eyes. Angular head. tousled hair. Scruffy vampire beard. Hot lips. an innocent, shy, romantic smile. Perfect?!
Robert Pattinson (24, “Twilight” saga), the man with whom every woman wants to have breakfast. A mix of Hugh Grant, James Dean, Jesus Christ and beer-drinking vampire.
“Hotel de Rome. Roof terrace. Bodyguard. Assistants – and BILD.
He is tall, shy, open, relaxed, friendly, humble, loves to laugh and has a warm, careful voice. He drinks Coke.
He’s wearing an outfit by Hugo Boss: ” a gift that was in my suite – and my stuff was dirty.”
BILD: Describe yourself?
I don’t even know who I am. Before I was famous, it was easier. Now it’s hard. You still have to talk about yourself, your character is exhausted. I am who I am.
He came with Air Berlin from the Caribbean – no private jet.
He travels with just hand luggage: backpack, bag and guitar.
He smokes, is allergic to weed and earned 27 million dollars last year. His life’s dream and nightmare.
His success is his prison: “I’m afraid to buy a house because it would then be besieged.” He is on the run – for millions of fans.
His latest movie “Water for Elephants” is a true mirror of his soul (yesterday was the premiere in Berlin, Germany). Story: A young vet loses everything. He jumps on a circus train and has to grow up the hard way. His love: Reese Witherspoon. His opponent: Christoph Waltz!
A kind of “Gone with the Wind” on railroad tracks. ‘I felt so good while making the movie because I could be myself. I didn’t have to say much – but I had to react more. It almost felt like my soul was naked and bare.’
BILD: How do you live?
‘I wake up and fall asleep. My most important friend is my alarm clock. I read books on my Kindle and my iPad2.’
BILD: Do you believe in fate?
‘I think so yes. It makes things easier: you can do what you want’
BILD: What does happiness mean to you?
‘Simple things. It’s easy to make me happy. A pizza and a sixpack beer are enough.’
BILD: What is your most important possession?
‘I don’t want to own things. I always have my Gibson electric guitar from 1963 with me. I love losing my phone: makes me feel free.’
BILD: Any ‘bad habits’?
I’m obsessed sometimes. I hoard and collect things – but I don’t have a house. I put everything in storage houses.
BILD:What makes Rob unique?
‘You just have to look at him!’ Director Francis Lawrence laughs: ‘He’s got something mysterious, magnetic. Just a camera can capture that and it makes people radiate!’ Robert Pattinson laughs – at himself.
BILD: Are you single or in love?
He laughs even more. His big blue eyes look at me. His teeth dazzle: “Well, yes, I am single, but I’m in love too.”
BILD: With whom?
He laughs, I laugh, we laugh. “I sometimes feel like a native in the jungle. Such a question is like a picture of my soul. And I won’t let my soul be stolen.’
