Emilie de Ravin talks about working with Rob in 'Remember Me'   Leave a comment

Emilie de Ravin is caught between two worlds.

 The bright-eyed Australian actor is in Toronto for a round of interviews promoting her new film, Remember Me, a romantic drama that pairs her with Twilight throb Robert Pattinson. From here, she’ll fly into a snowbound New York for the press junket.

After that, it’s back to tropical Hawaii to finish the sixth and final season of Lost, where she plays Claire, who’s returned this year with a mysterious homicidal mania.

“We’ve got three hours to shoot, or maybe three and a half at this point,” de Ravin says. “So about six or seven weeks left. Not much. And I have no idea how it’s gonna end, I really don’t.”

That’s okay, I say. I’m enjoying the mystery and don’t want to know how it wraps up.

“Well, I do!” She laughs. “But at the same time, I’m kinda used to getting surprised each week when I get my scripts, so I like that now.”

Remember Me offered a change from Lost, though its storyline also features characters struggling with father issues and traumatized by the loss of a close relative. (De Ravin’s Ally loses her mother to a subway mugging; Pattinson’s Tyler found his suicidal brother’s body.)

But the biggest difference was shooting on location in Manhattan, surrounded by hundreds of screaming Twi-hards, all jockeying for a glimpse of their favourite sparkle vampire.

“It’s fascinating, the amount of screaming – young women and girls and older women, and the occasional male,” she laughs. “Women just came out in general. They can just pop out of nowhere at any given moment. I mean, god, some of them were, like, eight years old! How do you even know what a good-looking guy is? You’re eight!

“But you know, it was interesting to navigate that – to stay focused on what you’re doing, when you’ve got so many people just glued to every movement you make. You’re just trying to figure out a scene and be in that moment. I tried to look at it as a challenge, as opposed to a problem.”

De Ravin found her way through it by developing intricate backstories for her character with Pattinson and Chris Cooper, who plays her father – the better to know where Ally was emotionally in any given scene.

“With Chris,” she says, “we spent time together but also spent time really developing our backstory, basically talking about ‘Okay, what do we talk about on a daily basis? Who cooks? Who does this?’ I think that really helped, and hopefully it comes across.

“There was a similar situation with Rob because, you know, there’s a lot of things that are not happening on-screen. We’re going to get to the point where we basically know everything about each other, but you can’t obviously have the audience there for all of that. It’d take months!”

Remember Me gives de Ravin her largest film role to date – and not just because she’s starring opposite Pattinson. The bulk of her big-screen appearances have been smaller supporting roles. She’s dead before Brick even begins, and her screen time in last year’s Public Enemies amounts to a handful of shots in an early robbery sequence.

“You can develop a three-scene character,” de Ravin says, “and it can be great, but the audience doesn’t know as much about you. So they’re not as comfortable with that character, or they don’t feel like they know that character as much. You really get to know the people in this film.”

Robert Pattinson's Interview With ComingSoon.Net – SPOILERS   Leave a comment

Robert Pattinson’s instantaneous and often overwhelming star power is fantastic for the moment. But what happens when “The Twilight Saga” comes to a close and his herds of adoring fans find another up and comer to fawn over? If Pattinson has anything to do with it, he’ll have moved on from simply being a Hollywood heartthrob and have established himself as a reputable actor. Not only does Remember Me provide him with the opportunity to be remembered long after his claim to fame has come and gone, but it allows him to deliver a similarly important concept to moviegoers: the value of moving on but never forgetting.

Pattinson stars as Tyler, an NYU student struggling with a vast amount of demons he’s not quite sure really exist. It’s fortunate that Pattinson can’t relate to his character in two respects: he didn’t have a troubled youth and that disconnect made the role much more intriguing to tackle. During a roundtable interview he explained, “All the people who I’ve met who are troubled teenagers, you meet their family and their family is like, ‘I don’t know what to do. He’s just – I have no idea what his problem is.'” Tyler definitely has problems to work out, but a recent family tragedy further exacerbates the situation causing him to get unnecessarily heated and even violent.

Spoilers after the jump!

Esquire: What Robert Pattinson Knows Can Save Us All   2 comments

You want to hate him. But then you get to know him, and he gets to know himself, and you wonder if Vampire Boy might just turn into the man who teaches a generation of jaded sex symbols how to be movie stars we love.

By separating his surprisingly modest personality from his gratuitously oversexed persona, Pattinson has obliquely demanded that he be taken seriously.

A funny, unexpected thing happened to me on a recent Saturday in New York: I literally ran into Robert Pattinson, and he left me… starstruck. He had to earn it, though, as I tend to cow neither to celebrities nor the young male heartthrob kind. I’d met the actor at an event for his new film Remember Me, which comes out Friday, but an accidental encounter with him and his entourage in a hotel corridor — where the stench of sycophancy lingered like stale piss — got things off on the wrong foot. About twenty minutes later, Pattinson and a not-quite-as-rank entourage greeted me and a handful of other journalists. I didn’t expect much. His vagina allergies aside, the world’s most conspicuous vampire since Dracula is notoriously shy, and Remember Me wasn’t especially good. What was left to discuss?

A lot, as it turned out, most of which hinged on the basic separation of persona from character, of public from private, of myth from man. Not that Pattinson himself, as one of the world’s most in-demand men, would dare reduce his life to such binary terms. Instead, he went on and on about his limitations. “If I could do supporting roles in things, then I’d love to do that,” he told me. “But it’s difficult to get supporting roles because it would be really weird most of the time. ‘Well, there’s the guy from Twilight playing the parking warden,’ or something.” He smiled and laughed beneath that notorious shock of hair, not quite swearing off ambition as much as suggesting the cost of self-importance was simply too steep to pay — even for a twenty-three-year-old who made $18 million last year. He was down to earth about being stratospherically famous, and it was… refreshing.

Now I don’t know what exactly I expected from Pattinson, but it definitely wasn’t this kind of canny profile management. In a day and age when other young sex symbols seem to grapple with the burden of perspective, Pattinson transcended his brooding pulchritude with modesty and charm. “What can you do?” he seemed to ask. It’s a shame he couldn’t infuse Remember Me with some of that lilt, but ultimately, the movie needs it much less than the general culture around Pattinson. And by general culture I mean feeding frenzy from middle school gym class to the upper reaches of Hollywood studios and, yes, to the lives of ordinary grown men who like going to the movies.

Indeed, Pattinson might do well to host some sort of seminar for his colleagues: Persona Control in the New Age of the Sex Symbol. From his co-stars in the Twilight franchise to the megastarlets and overexposed princes around whom increasingly more of Hollywood orbits, you can sense the resentment of what fame has wrought. I often find them bristling and pouting their ways through surreal everyday scenarios like the one above, consumed with anger and fear that they can have anything they want except what they really want: to be taken seriously. But as an outsider, it never occurred to me to take someone like Robert Pattinson seriously at all — until he relinquished the compulsion to convince me. That was the star move, and don’t be surprised to see it adopted by an entire generation of would-be stars once they realize that, if they want to survive this racket, they have no other choice.

For starters, take Kristen Stewart, biting her lip in protest — as per usual — on her way to the podium on Oscar night. Pattinson’s Twilight co-star was all gorgeous, coiled sulk — a hilarious counterweight to co-presenter (and her other Twilight co-star) Taylor Lautner, whose plasticine perma-grin defied Stewart’s public existential crisis. Lautner may seem all looks and no brains, but at least he knows when to live in his abject superstardom. Not so with the nineteen-year-old Stewart, who despite growing up in Hollywood and having acted half her life still insists on playing the outsider. But what, exactly, are young women like her defending against? Ask anyone who’s worked with Stewart and they’ll tell you she’s too stubborn, too ambitious, and too sensitive to sputter out-of-control — to throw away the talent that she’s clearly displayed in smaller films like The Cake Eaters and Adventureland. In fairness, I can’t imagine the pressure of being tethered to her Twilight siren, Bella Swan, for years to come, either. Yet this contrived distance between the Stewart who’ll soon appear as a young Joan Jett in The Runaways and the one who’ll throw herself at Pattinson and/or Lautner this summer in Eclipse has stretched too thin to support the young woman in the middle. Discomfort in one’s skin is one thing. Snarling entitlement is another.

Maybe Megan Fox, at twenty-three, can save herself from the same fate. Much has been made of her apparent motivation to corner the market on sex symbolism and voice of a generation, but I’m one of the few people who’ll stick up for Jennifer’s Body, which purposely enlisted her to demonstrate the steep costs of sexuality for sexuality’s sake. That she played along with it (and pulled it off, I swear) was a testament to the “serious actress” Fox can be — the clever young woman who spotted and took the opportunity to redeem her own myth. The problem is that Fox spent the entire run up to Jennifer’s Body explaining the joke to death, complete with the angry punch line, “I am a serious actress.” Whereas once she couldn’t outrun the Transformers franchise fast enough, now she appears to realize it can enable both contrast and freedom in her career. She may have missed this with Jennifer’s Body, but she’ll do better going forward. Or at least as well as the current face of Emporio Armani underwear and the pistol-packing prostitute in this summer’s mega-comic-movie Jonah Hex can do without blaming everyone else for turning her into a cartoon. Professor Pattinson would tell her to just own it, and he’d be right.

Again, I don’t pretend to know what it’s like to negotiate this terrain at such an age, and I definitely wouldn’t ascribe this complex to beautiful young women alone. After all, though they’re a little older (and should thus know even better), you can’t escape the likes of John Mayer and Ashton Kutcher swooning at their sounds of their own voices. Mayer is Mayer, knowingly edgy enough to infuriate but too much of a self-righteous pussy to commit — just another blame-the-media type, even if one of the media is Twitter and he’s burying himself 144 characters at a time. Kutcher’s not as bad (is anybody?), though I love that he thinks Twitter gives him some leverage against those who’d dare to compromise his public citizenry. “It’s a beautiful environment,” he said recently. “You can take the control back in your relationship with the media. You can dictate your own view.” Yes, Ashton, because your encounters with Lady Gaga or your upcoming film Killers — a romantic comedy with that other persona-embattled young thing, Katherine Heigl — demand only the purest standard of dissemination.

But just in case the lessons of Pattinson are lost on them all, there may yet be hope for youth. Watch and see what happens with Greta Gerwig, the indie darling whom Noah Baumbach recruited as the female lead in his upcoming Ben Stiller dramedy Greenberg. She already has acquired a sort of mini-legend from her concerted, clothes-allergic “Mumblecore” efforts like Hannah Takes the Stairs and Nights and Weekends. But Gerwig’s presence opposite Stiller — and her charm in the promotional realm over the last month — may portend a new kind of model for the accessibility of the earthbound hottie. Which also brings to mind Alice Eve, whose She’s Out of My League directly addresses that very accessibility with a schlub played by Jay Baruchel; Eve has done just fine expressing her concerns about objectification without all the baleful moans and mopes.

And of course, there’s Pattinson himself — that new ambassador of extraterrestrial beauty — who seems to get how fleeting, how absurd, how extraordinary it all really is. Oh, and how to make it work. Shouldn’t we all be so lucky?
