Short Robert Pattinosn interview with I (from the Independent) Words by Kaleem Aftab
Maps to the Stars is the title of the new David Cronenberg film starring Robert Pattinson. It refers to the Hollywood cartography that informs tourists where to find the homes of their favourite actors. Anyone buying one of these plans will be disappointed if they are looking for the home of Britain’s mosy famous vampire. Last Year the actor sold his masion in Griffith Park, near the Hollywood sign in central Los Angeles, saying he was too young to be tied to such a lavish property and instead wanted to lay low and live life to his needs rather than his means. “The house was so amazing, he says of the abode he sold for $6.37m (3.9m. “I wasn’t really thinking when I got it. I had been living in and out of hotels, and you have money for the first time.” When he says money, he means a mind boggling amount. He reportedly received $20m for the final part of Twilight, the vampire saga that made him a global name, and made his private life public fodder. Pattinson says selling the house is part of a general disassociation with Hollywood. “If you are the kind of person
who needs to be pushed into doing something, Hollywood is not the right place, so I think I might be done with Los Angeles.”

A former teen heartthrob developed into a serious character actor(actor of complex parts). TV MOVIE talked with Twilight star Robert Pattinson about children, his future and extreme feelings.
Not only a little bit changed: Robert Pattinson is looking for new challenges- and now is shooting sophisticated movies(after his global succes “Twilight”, box-office gross of the vampire saga more than 3,3 billions of dollars). In his new movie, the apocalyptic-drama “The Rover”, he plays an unstable gangster who fights alongside Guy Pearce in a brutalized world through the Australian outback.
Mr. Pattinson, your new movie “The Rover” presents a bad future. Would you be afraid to have children in a world like this?
Ah, it’s always the same! Every generation believes they are going down the drain(German proverb “vor die Hunde gehen” which means something like they are going to die because of different circumstances). But at the end everything is fine.I believe in the positive human nature. So, for sure I want to have children.
How do you control your fears?
I really would like to go to therapy, but I’m afraid of(laughing).
Seriously, you would not go to any kind of therapy?
That’s why I do auditions for movies. Before them my knees slutter all the time . So much that every time I tell myself I am going to stop acting. Also for “The Rover” I had to control my neuroses before I was able to start finding into my role. But however, at the end I like my ups and downs.
How do you deal with depressions?
They don’t last that long. But when I am into one , I wallow myself in them.
If tomorrow would be the end of the world, what would you do?
Probably I would spend the time with the people who are important for me. Well, or I just would freak out and cross the Times Square naked(laughing).
Your new role is very different compared with other characters you have played in the past. How do your fans deal with it?
You can’t please everybody. And also nobody can predict what the audience and critics want to see at the end.
Do you have made any plans for your career in the future?
I have worked with people like Werner Herzog or David Cronenberg- that’s what I dreamed of when I was like 16. I try to face new challenges and it would be great if the people would appreciate the work I have done.
Would you be willing to play the role of a vampire again?
Sure, why not!
