It’s Robert Pattinson speaking, the former vampire who bewitches even without biting. That’s what happens in the Dior Homme cologne adv. That’s what happens one day in Los Angeles, where we met and interviewed him for the October issue of Glamour Italy…
Do you mind if I chew a piece of gum during the interview?». First info: Robert Pattinson is a polite Hollywood star. Twilight, the vampire saga that made him famous, yielded him a popularity second only to the post-Titanic “DiCaprio-mania”. However, Robert remained a 27 year old down-to-earth guy who asks for permission.
And who quickly changes his mind: «Actually, I’m going to spit it: this is disgusting!». He waits for a hint of approval, then rips the corner of a newspaper, wraps in the “gross piece of gum”, and smiles, while hiding the “misdeed” with his hands. Second info: Rob, as his friends call him, with his flipped back baseball cap and his three days’ stubble , is also funny.
«Do you want to try an Italian one?», I ask him. «Really? Thank you!». He delicately takes the package. While opening it, with his half British half American accent, he reads: «Denti bianchi, sorriso protetto (i.e.: white teeth, protected smile)». He hasn’t got a single word, but looks enthusiastic. He tries one, then reclines his head, so all that one can see is his thick eyebrows, and, right below, two blue slits. He whispers: «Yours are much better».
Third info: Pattinson could win anyone over with just one look.

Here’s a new Rob interview from Cannes with W Radio – Columbia
Source | Via | Youtube
Rob talks about getting inspiration from the serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer for Eric’s character.
Here’s the audio we took of Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg’s interview on the Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review. Thanks to Janine from Robert Pattinson UK
David Cronenberg talks to Francine Stock from ‘The Film Programme’ about ‘Cosmopolis’, casting Rob & his fans at 3:50.
ETA another audio interview added - David talks about Rob in Cosmopolis with France Inter at 11:20 and 28:58. Listen to it HERE
11:12 to 12:55: Is it true, David Cronenberg, that during the shooting of Cosmopolis, you were saying to Robert Pattinson – who’s the lead: “If you understand anything to what we’re doing, we’re lost.”
David: I did say that, I said, because he said: ‘I have no idea what I’m doing with this movie and what this character is.’ And I said: “But you are doing everything perfectly correct.” And therefore, it would be boring and it would lack spontaneity , it would lack inventiveness, if you knew before you made the film everything you need to do in the film. Also, I’ve said many times that you make the film to understand why you wanted to make the film. You don’t even know why you wanna do this film. And I was explaining to him, because he’s a young actor and he did not have the experience, that they are many ways to understand something. It’s not always a sort of logical intellectual way of understanding. It’s more intuitive, it’s visceral. And he has wonderful intiution and mainly when I said that, I was really saying to him: “Trust your intuition, you really have wonderful acting intuitions, you must trust them.”
at 28:24 to 28:58 David: Both DeLillo and Burroughs have wonderful, very funny, very strange, very bizarre dilaogue, and wonderful to hear actors speak. So I’m sure I have absorbed Burroughs from a very early age. The rythym of their speech is very american, I’m Canadian and so when I hear american speech from DeLillo, from Burroughs it’s foreign to me, it’s foreign dialogue. Canadians don’t speak that way. So just as Robert Pattinson, who is English, has to do an American accent when he is in the movie, I too as a writer and a director, I am actually doing an american accent.
