Robert Pattinson's Interview with Parade Part 2   Leave a comment

Fear not, Twilight fans. This June, Robert Pattinson will be back in theaters as Hollywood’s hottest vampire, Edward Cullen, in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Meanwhile, you can catch him making love and war as troubled college student Tyler in the indie drama Remember Me. Parade.com’s Jeanne Wolf found out why Pattinson would like to be more like his character, who doesn’t hold back his emotions.

The dating game.
“When it comes to the opposite sex, I’m not as fully confident as the guy I play. I don’t even remember the last time I asked someone out on a date, like, just went up to them and that’s the first thing I did. I’m much more self-conscious and not wanting to fail. So I tend to hold back.”

Ditto with unleashing his macho side.
“I related to Tyler in that I wish I could have done things like he did when I had the opportunity. There is something quite satisfying about being a little bit more reckless and even fighting. It’s quite cathartic to just sort of randomly start hitting someone. It was fun kind of, letting all your rage go on the set. We had this big scene where I punch out some guys. It went fine and nobody was really hurt at all. But, at the end, I was like doing this thing where I was hitting myself in the arm, sort of pumping myself up. They cut it out of the movie, but I punched myself so hard that I was in a lot of pain for the rest of the shoot. It was the most stupid thing I’ve ever done.”

He’s felt the pain before.
“I got beaten up by a lot of people when I was younger. I was a bit of an idiot, but I always thought the assaults were unprovoked. It was after I first started acting and I liked to behave like an actor, or how I thought an actor was supposed to be, and that apparently provoked a lot of people into hitting me.”

What he learned from Pierce Brosnan.
“We went out to dinner in a restaurant full of all these guys who looked like bankers or brokers. They didn’t recognize me, but they recognized Pierce. And he said, ‘Notice those people looking over?’ I’m sitting there getting more and more self-conscious, even though I didn’t realize they weren’t looking at me. Suddenly, Pierce got up and introduced himself to everybody in the restaurant. At first I was like, ‘What are you doing? You’re like completely insane.’ But it worked. Everybody just relaxed and stopped staring and you could tell they were going to go home and say, ‘Pierce is such a nice guy.'”

No problem with being compared to James Dean.
“I think he was like the most influential person for young guys, especially actors, in the last 50 years. So yeah, I mean, I’m not ashamed to say I am very much influenced by him.”

Facing up to the pressure of the box office.
“It’s like a kind of a monster thing. The more people think they know you, the more you’re identified with a certain kind of role. People always used to ask me about typecasting and I never had to really worry about it. You think people will judge you by your work. But the truth is, it’s about whether the film you’re in makes money or not. And if it’s not making money, they’re like, ‘Oh, he’s over.'”

His ultimate goal.
“You keep trying to make your name stand for something other than just like meaningless celebrity. It’s a difficult battle, but I think people like Johnny Depp have done that. He’s not judged by his public image, it’s just his acting that counts. To get to that place takes a lot of discipline and a lot of hiding.”

3 New 'Remember Me' Reviews- MAJOR SPOILER WARNING   2 comments

***SPOILER  WARNING!***

Keep in mind that not every review will be positive. If you read the ones posted already, a lot of them are praising Rob and ‘Remember Me’


From The Sidney Morning Herald – Spoilerish

IN Remember Me, Robert Pattinson rejoins the human race. The film was made straight after he finished the most recent episode in the Twilight saga and it surely came as a great relief to him. After doing so well in alerting teens to the sexiness of the supernatural, he must have wondered if he’d be permitted to embrace normality again.

But here he is, playing just another mixed-up kid in the James Dean tradition – except that this rebel does have a cause. He is out to shake some humanity into his father, Charles (Pierce Brosnan). Charles is a Wall Street tycoon so ensconced on the dark side that he can barely spare time to attend the family gathering held to mark the anniversary of his elder son’s suicide.

From TimeOut New York – Spoilerish

There’s tons of brooding for your buck in the hilariously earnest Remember Me, which will hopefully be revived several years from now as a beloved midnight movie. Twilight inamorato Robert Pattinson (star and executive producer) confidently sulks his way through this jaw-dropping mix of come-hither stares, “love me, Daddy!” histrionics and historical tragedy.

He’s Tyler Hawkins, a gloomily soulful NYU student at odds with his businessman father (Brosnan), and who cracks Boyz II Men jokes as if he were Allen Ginsberg reading “Howl.” After getting into a street fight, he’s arrested by a policeman (Cooper) who—it just so happens—has a daughter (De Ravin) also enrolled at NYU. One alpha-male bet with his roommate later, Tyler’s on a retributive date…but then love begins to bloom.

Sex is had, past secrets are revealed, but all is not well in Camelot, as director Allen Coulter and writer Will Fetters shamelessly hint via snatches of summer 2001 news broadcasts (it’s a period piece, see) and a telegraphing glimpse at a certain pair of buildings. I can’t say any more beyond telling you that I came out of the screening with an ear-to-ear grin I don’t usually get from even great movies. Bless you, R.Patz & Co., because this gloriously steaming pile is officially in the bad-movies-we-love pantheon.

From Village Voice – VERY Spoilerish

Putatively a new romance starring Robert Pattinson, Remember Me begins like a vigilante movie: A Brooklyn subway platform, 1991; a racially charged stickup; an 11-year-old girl watches her mother get shot. It’s the first sign that here is a film that won’t be content just charting the little measures by which two people become able to love—in fact, it’ll barely do that at all.

Are You Planning on Going to See Remember Me This Weekend? Remember Me Needs Your Help!   23 comments


Are you planning on going to see Remember Me this weekend? I know we are. We’ve been waiting for this movie for the past few months and can barely wait. If you’ve been reading ToR from the beginning you probably know that we have been great supporters of Remember Me from the very start.

However since this has turned into some type of test for Rob from Hollywood, being his first role outside of the Twilight Saga, we want Remember Me to have a big opening weekend.We, as  Rob fans, know he can act having seen Little Ashes, How to Be, The Haunted Airman, etc… The rest of the world however might make him out to be just Edward Cullen. We want them to see that Rob is much more than Edward. That he is a great actor with a bright future ahead of him beyond The Twilight Saga.

We need your help. We’re asking you to post about Remember Me on your sites, tweet about it, post it on Youtube, Facebook, MySpace. Everywhere you can think of.  We need as many people as possible to go see Remember Me this weekend. Bring your friends, parents, boyfriends, families, etc… We want Remember Me to have a big opening weekend.

Remember Me is a very touching movie with an amazing moral behind it, a moral we should all live by: “Live in The Moment”.

Leave us a comment and tell us who you plan on going to see it with.

Interview in The Boston Herald With Robert Pattinson and Allen Coulter   1 comment

Before Edward Cullen and “Twilight” and the global heartthrob status that followed, there was Robert Pattinson, young actor making his way in the business.

“I thought he was a nice, scruffy young guy from England,” said “Remember Me” director Allen Coulter. He had lunch with Pattinson a year before shooting began.

“Twilight” hadn’t yet opened, and Coulter ultimately cast Pattinson as Tyler Hawkins, an anguished college student estranged from his father who falls in love with the daughter of a cop.

“I thought, ‘What the hell, let’s take a chance on the guy.’ Then suddenly he was a phenomenon.”

When “Remember Me” was filming last year on location in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, security was a must because of paparazzi and fans.

“The actors are trying to do an intimate scene, with a thousand girls vibrating on the hill,” Coulter said.

Pattinson agreed: “The first two weeks were kind of crazy because I was all around (New York University) and Washington Square Park, where there would be tons of people around anyway. But after that you just get used to it. You just block certain things out.”

“I barely like anything and so it’s kind of easy to pick your jobs. I was reading a ton of scripts and what shocked me was it just didn’t fall into any (category). It didn’t seem very formulaic and I’d just read tons and tons of formulaic scripts. It was just such a relief to find that.”

Also, he added, “there was something about Tyler – I don’t know – the way he reacted to things. I hadn’t really seen another character like it in a hundred scripts.”

“Twilight: Eclipse” arrives this summer and Pattinson is set to film the fourth and final chapter soon after.

“Remember Me” opens Friday.

The Sydney Morning Herald Casts Robert Pattinson in a New Light   Leave a comment

It’s the same interview as the one found here except this one isn’t translated.

Robert Pattinson keeps a safe distance from the hype in a quest to prove his post-vampire cred, writes David Michael.

‘I don’t really know how I would want to be remembered,” Robert Pattinson says of an underlining theme to his new film, Remember Me. “In a lot of ways, I’d prefer to not be remembered and just completely wiped clean from memory.”

Pattinson’s reticence about being remembered is understandable, given the past 12 months of media coverage of the actor has been limited to the celebration of his good looks and the stardom afforded to him due to his portrayal of the lovelorn vampire Edward Cullen in the phenomenally successful Twilight film series.

For Pattinson, such adulation would fall short of a fitting epitaph. For him, fame is not the name of the game.

When S meets the 23-year-old in London, the shy-natured actor sports the distinct incognito combo of baseball cap and bushy beard. If it’s a little overkill in terms of diffusing his sex-symbol image, the practicality of being less recognisable to the rabid legions of teenage subscribers to the cult of “R-Patz” is understandable.

Despite turning his back on the prospect of university at the age of 17 to take up acting after dabbling at his local theatre group near the family home in Barnes, greater London, there’s no doubting Pattinson’s level-headed smarts in trying to dampen the inferno of attention that engulfs him.

He turns down constant advertising endorsement offers, front-row invitations to fashion shows and reportedly even the offer of a record contract by music mogul Simon Cowell, to cash-in on his lesser known musical talent. Pattinson is keen to temper the fickle nature of success rearing its head, signs of which he’s already seen with the release of the second Twilight film.

“I didn’t like the way New Moon was reviewed,” reflects the actor. “When something is so hyped, it’s inevitable there’s a backlash against it.”

Now, the actor has little to fear in terms of any personal backlash from fans. It’s something he hopes to avoid by placing increasing importance on the films he manages to squeeze in between shooting the vampire franchise. “Most independent films are never going to get made,” he says. “But if you have the financial cachet behind you, you can get it made just off your own back.”

Shot between New Moon and the forthcoming The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the tragic family drama of Remember Me is a prime example of that. Taking place in New York on the eve of 9/11, Pattinson plays the rebellious Tyler, who – haunted by the suicide of his older brother and emotionally frustrated by his distant workaholic father (Pierce Brosnan) – finds kinship with Ally (Australian actress Emilie de Ravin), who herself has suffered the loss of her mother.

“My main attraction was to play a role close to myself and because I’ve never played a normal guy,” says Pattinson, who was hands-on in the development of the film from beginning to end.

“I tried to make it about the point in your adolescence when you’re so focused on being an individual and you don’t want to accept just being part of the world.”

Despite Pattinson’s best intentions, the romance at the heart of the piece, although pleasing his fan base, hardly offers a departure for the actor.

However, things will be notably different in his next film, Bel Ami, which is being made in London. He plays the social-climbing philanderer Georges Durey of Guy de Maupassant’s 19th-century novel.

“He’s a guy who hates the entire world and just uses women to get money,” Pattinson says of his character, who enjoys romps between the sheets with women played by Uma Thurman and Christina Ricci.

“I thought it was quite a funny little story after doing all these romantic things.”

The hard yards for Pattinson have just begun but rather than believing his own hype, a guilt complex about his good fortune has given him sobriety beyond his years.

“You have to earn your luck,” he says. “I am pretty sure in the next 10 years I’ll be working every single day to kind of make up for this.”

Remember Me is released on Thursday.
