From Welt Online – Translated from German:
Berlin (DAPD). Actor Robert Pattinson has previously kept away because of self-doubt ambitious roles. “I have now signed up for many projects that last year I would have thought that I wasn’t good enough for them as an actor,” said the “Twilight” actor to DAPD news in Berlin. The turning point was the drama “Cosmopolis,” that recently was in competition at the Cannes Festival.
“As an actor, if you are invited to Cannes, you see yourself in a different light,” said the 26-year-old Briton. His response: “Maybe I can make really cool movies.”
After nude scenes in the period drama “Bel Ami”, Pattinson had in “Cosmopolis” for director David Cronenberg drop the cases. “I’m always very inhibited, because I’m English,” confessed the actor. “Everyone else always feels so comfortable in their own skin on sex scenes. I’m the one that falls into a panic.” Trust it to the director, it would be easier. “If you shoot a movie you don’t really like, you feel yourself just a little like a prostitute.”
In the film adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel “Cosmopolis,” Pattinson plays a financial shark who is personally and professionally before the crash. The film will be on Thursday (5 July).

Online Focus: Translation: “Acting has nothing to do with the brain, it exists for thousands of years already. And it is only since the 50s, since Lee Strasberg, that it became analytical, “the 26-year-old said to FOCUS. “Actors need a voice and a face – and maybe balls,” said the Briton, who lives in Hollywood.
In his new film “Cosmopolis”, on the 5th of July in the German cinemas, Pattinson embodies a multi-billion punters. Personally, the young multi-millionaire has no experience with financial investment, or fund shares.
He spends his money on “completely silly things like dog food” told Pattinson. “Or for telephone bills. I never get a European cell phone when I’m here. And then suddenly I have to pay $20,000. “

This is a rough Google Translation for now:
Mr. Pattinson as Eric Packer is leaving once his aura, his limo, and now he is attacked with a cake. Was there a similar moment in your career?
Strangely, I have a similar scene in “Water for Elephants” shot. But otherwise, no, not that I know of. Maybe in a metaphorical sense …
No aggressive paparazzi and overzealous fans?
No, that has been trusted no one. Thank God that would have otherwise had a Bad injury.
How would you describe your character in the movie?
Eric Packer is a man who looks at the whole world very abstract, himself, his body, his fellow men. He wears egomaniacal trains and lives in its deepest interior withdrawn, in a world where there is not the actual reality. Throughout the film, he finally tries to regain control of his body, about himself, until he gives up completely at the end.
What will remain of Eric Packer?
It’s weird. I had to remember me as much text and I thought these lines would disappear from my head as soon as each scene is filmed. But the words are still there, I can still memorize the entire script. It sounds stupid now, but there are times a day, which I quote passages DeLillo, error-free. David (Cronenberg) always says: “It’s like the Bible! There is a quote for every occasion! “Somehow DeLillo’s words are still with me arrested. Its importance is more and more aware. Especially in the scene with Samantha Morton, as we talk about the future, there are passages that haunt me literally.
