*VIDEO* New interview of Robert Pattinson with Associated Press – LIFE Berlinale pres junket Leave a comment
Here’s a new great picture of Robert Pattinson at the premiere of LIFE – Berlinale
EN Interview 1 – Ever since the Twilight films turned him into an object of mass attention, Robert Pattinson has tried to find his way clear of fan obsession and make his mark as a serious actor. Films like Cosmopolis and Bel Ami helped distance audiences from his vampire alter ego, and now, in Anton Corbijn’s Life, Pattinson gives what is arguably the best performance of his career. The 28-year-old heartthrob plays Dennis Stock, the photographer whose iconic photos of James Dean during the last months of his life have sustained the actor’s legend even more than his films.
“James Dean is very much an iconic figure to me,” Pattinson says. “He represents disaffected youth and alienation in a powerful way that still resonates with us. Those photos of Dean, like the one where he is walking in Times Square, are much more part of our image and impression of him than his films. You can feel his aura and mystique in those photos.”

New pictures of Robert Pattinson’s interview with ‘Scoop with Raya’ – LIFE press junket Leave a comment
Here are two screenshots of Robert Pattinson’s interview with ‘Scoop with Raya’. We’ll add the interview when as sooon as possible.
EX TEEN IDOL
Actor Robert Pattinson is used to the Red Carpet, where he, thanks to the Twilight series, was often waylaid by teenage girls. Now he plays a Red Carpet photographer in Anton Corbijn’s LIFE.
One of the first things that director, Anton Corbijn, did after he had cast Robert Pattinson was to put a camera in his hands. In the role of Dennis Stock, photographer of the international photo press bureau Magnum, the camera, he thought, had to become a part of his body. He had another reason: Pattinson had to feel how it is to be behind the camera instead of being in front of it.
The role that Pattinson plays in the new movie of Anton Corbijn, that got a special Gala Screening at Berlin, feels a bit like the world is upside-down. In the movie the world star and teen idol stands in between the photographers at the Red Carpet where in real life the 28 year old actor is waylaid by photographers.
