Here’s a short interview with Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg about Maps to the Stars.
Warning it’s very short, only audio and in French. The interview stars somewhere around 6.22
“There’s definitely that kind of ‘we don’t give a shit about anything apart from money’. People are like that in LA but there are plenty of people who don’t think like that and to be honest I’ve only had good experiences in Hollywood since I’ve worked in this industry. Of course, I’ve seen people lose themselves but I don’t think it’s Hollywood’s fault but due to their own nerosis. This place attracts a lot of crazies who leave even crazier. But really it’s really fun if you’re not nuts *laughs*”
Robert Pattinson is heading to Cannes for new movies ‘The Rover’ and ‘Maps to the Stars.’

In short: it says Rob will show more than his pretty face, that Cronenberg is going back to his roots, the cast is pretty good and that Julianne’s performance is probably gonna be the best out of all her already amazing performances.

Quotes from the interview
David says it’s magical and exciting to go back to present a film at Cannes. He is proud to be a Canadian selected for Cannes Film Festival.
David loves the crazyness in the actors. That they are like children playing at being someone else
David says he makes his films very simply. Two days after the shooting, editing was finished!
David recites the poem by Paul Eluard ‘Liberty’ in French and without mistakes :) The poem has some significance and special meaning in the film.
David said that the film gives a very dark interpretation of what is freedom in Hollywood but he says that we must go see the movie to find out more lol
About Rob and Mia, David says they are fantastic actors, they bring a freshness and a different way of seeing the world. Because they are Internet generation, they have very sharp mind and great wisdom for their age. He says he feels like a father or maybe a grandfather for them
David doesn’t have movie project for now, he has written a book and 5 producers have already called him to make a film of it.
“Maps to the Stars” takes aim at Hollywood excess, with an ensemble cast including a bleach-blond Julianne Moore playing a hysterical actress and Mia Wasikowska playing the mysterious, scarred young woman who suddenly appears in her life.
Although it marks the first time Cronenberg, known for “A History of Violence” and “Eastern Promises,” has made a film about Hollywood, he said he has been trying to make the movie — based on a script by novelist Bruce Wagner — for a decade.
“I’ve never really been obsessed with doing a movie about movie-making or anything like that, but in a way his script was not that. It’s about ambition and fear and desperation and a whole bunch of other things within the context of movie-making,” he said.
The film reunites Cronenberg with “Cosmopolis” star Robert Pattinson, who the director called “a terrific actor.”
“When we did ‘Cosmopolis,’ he didn’t really want to do it because his character was in every scene. He really wanted to be in an ensemble piece, where he was one of a great cast of actors,” said Cronenberg. “I said, ‘We talked about that and here it is. Here’s a perfect role for you.’”
