ToR Reviews "Fame: Robert Pattinson" The Comic Book   1 comment


BlueWater Comics sent us a copy of  “Fame: Robert Pattinson” for Review. We’re a bit late doing the review, sorry for the delay. Huge thanks to our guest poster AccentonLife for writting this article for ToR.

OK, let’s be honest here. If you’re a fan of Robert Pattinson (or even a regular visitor to this site), you already know the information in Fame: Robert Pattinson. But, for $3.99, it’s a worthwhile investment.

In this comic, you learn briefly about Pattinson’s early life. (The illustrations of his parents and of his two sisters dressing him up are easily two of the most amusing in the comic.) It then takes readers through his early film roles up to his part as Georges Duroy in Bel Ami. Pattinson’s story is told through an intriguing blend of narrative bits, illustrations and quotes from the actor himself.

The storytelling relates in some way back to the movies Pattinson has been in, but the authors find a way to stretch discussion of movie roles into discussions about his life in general. For example, part of the discussion about The Haunted Airman deals with Pattinson smoking and how many times he is photographed with a cigarette, relating it back to how many times his character lights up in that film. The authors also talk about Pattinson’s musical abilities as part of a discussion about the Twilight soundtrack.

The illustrations themselves are, in an odd way, rather interesting. The cover is the closest likeness. The inside illustrations, while portraying him in memorable poses and pieces of clothing, certainly are of that comic book/anime variety. Pattinson is often portrayed, particularly for professional photoshoots such as the one he did for GQ, in a suave, sophisticated manner. It’s interesting to see him portrayed in the slightly less perfect light of comic drawing – more angular, additional lines, harsher scruff. Nevertheless, fans will be satisfied with just how realistic these images are.

The collages are also fun. There is one that pieces together the book covers of the Twilight saga and another that illustrates some of his early roles. It’s not quite a “Where’s Waldo,” but it’s entertaining to see what you spot in them.

Perhaps the best thing about this comic is the use of quotes from Pattinson. They are scattered throughout the comic and provide a bit of insight into his thoughts on fame and the movies he’s done. One such quote is particularly perceptive: “I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary to be so famous. It all comes down to those 5 minutes of emotions that you give to people and that’s nice to feel. It’s part of the magic and everything that comes from making movies. The expectations, the dreams, the fantasies; it’s all an illusion. I’m a very normal guy, I can promise you that.”

Perhaps that sums up both Pattinson and this comic best. For fans, this will be another piece to add to the collection.

Robert Pattinson Interview with Italian TV   1 comment

Translation by fritzerina

He is telling that they got an interview with him in LA and he says he was sorry not for being in Italy promoting Eclipse because of working conflict. He says he went to Italy for New Moon and that Montepulciano is stunning the weather was amazing. Every night he loved to stay out with a glass of wine thinking “this is ridiculous”.

He also says that he doesn’t like vampires that much , he saw the saga movies but for him all the vampire fangs are the same.

He really likes the worldcup, so the interviewer says that we are waiting for the Italy vs England match. Rob laughs and says it would be fun to be there watching it.

Then he says “ciao italia”

NEW Rob Interview with The Daily Telegraph – Talks About 'Eclipse', 'WFE' and his personal life   1 comment

eclipse 2010

GIVEN Twilight’s phenomenal international success, it’s hard to imagine the next instalment of the vampire flicks could be a box office flop.

But Robert Pattinson isn’t taking anything for granted on the eve of the release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

“To be honest, I’m more terrified that it’s going to come out and no one’s going to see it,” Pattinson said.

Speaking on the phone whilst driving on a Californian highway, Pattinson is refreshingly down to earth, far removed from the hype that surrounds his Hollywood hunk status. His American twang from Twilight is replaced by his polite and friendly British tones and he seems genuinely keen for a chat – despite his reputation for being as brooding as his Twilight persona, the mysterious Edward Cullen.

He sounds kind of flattered, although wary, when this Insider admits to being an avid Twilight fan.

“Have you ever done an interview with a journalist who was a crazed Twilight fan?” I blurted.

“I think I’ve had one,” he muses. “She was from Vietnam and she was having a full-on panic attack in the interview, which was quite funny.”

With two blockbuster films already on the 24-year-old’s resume, three more in the works and millions of adoring fans, Pattinson has Hollywood at his feet.

The first two instalments, Twilight and New Moon, have broken countless box-office records, grossing more than $60 million in Australia alone and $1.3 billion worldwide.

The success was initially based on the cult following of Stephanie Meyer’s novels, which centre around Pattinson’s character Edward, his mortal love interest Bella Swan (played by Kristen Stewart) and a werewolf named Jacob (played by Taylor Lautner), who is also vying for Bella’s love.

The latest instalment, directed by David Slade, is slightly darker than the first two with a larger cast which includes Australian Xavier Samuel, whose character Riley leads an army of newborn vampires on a killing spree in Seattle.

“There’s more action in it and I guess it’s dark and more violent, but I always thought the tone of New Moon was quite dark,” Pattinson says.

The actor’s relatively new-found fame has brought with it an unwanted spotlight on his private life, in particular his much talked about relationship with co-star Stewart.

“It is extremely difficult but we are together, yes,” he told a British tabloid earlier this year, giving the media the first real proof the pair are, in fact, an off-screen item.

The intensely private star refuses to give press any fodder about his relationship – not for any amount of cash the gossip magazines might throw the couple’s way.

“I don’t understand why some people (sell stories) because it only ends up in sadness for yourself. I try to avoid it,” he says. “It becomes about money, and as soon as you start selling your actual life then you’re going down a really bad road.

“As long as you keep your job and your life separate, you’re much happier, and it’s much easier to deal with things and it’s much easier to escape.”

Pattinson, whose unruly head of hair and piercing blue-grey eyes have secured him spots atop a string of “world’s sexiest” lists, can’t see what the fuss is about, bewildered by the attention on his looks.

“I remember when I had my hair cut and it was on CNN,” he said. “Have they got nothing better to talk about? It’s quite funny.”

Pattinson cut his locks for his latest movie, Water For Elephants, in which he plays a veterinary student working at a circus who falls for an equestrian rider, played by Reese Witherspoon.

“The whole mentality of the character is completely different to Edward and I haven’t really had an enormous amount of time to prepare for it,” he says.

It was filming this movie that prevented Pattinson from visiting Sydney with Lautner and Stewart earlier this month to promote the new Twilight movie.

“I haven’t ever been to Australia but a lot of my best friends from school have moved there, to Melbourne,” he says excitedly, using our chat as an opportunity to get in touch with a long-lost mate.

“If Charlie is reading this, tell him to call me,” he says. “We used to stay in contact via Facebook but I can’t really have Facebook any more because it kept getting hacked into so I haven’t talked to him for a while.

“Tell him to call my mum because he’s probably still got that number.”

As for what the future holds, there’s the strong possibility he won’t be in front of the lens forever.

“I really enjoy it (acting) but there are a lot of other things I want to do as well. I really want to produce a movie,” he admits.

As for whether he will miss playing Edward when the fourth and final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn, is completed, the actor’s feelings are mixed: “I don’t know. I did some shoots for Eclipse a few weeks ago and it did feel so familiar … I guess I’m going to miss it quite a bit when it’s finished.”

But there’s one element he won’t be sad to leave behind: “The contact lenses are the most annoying things to put on every morning.

“I bet you the next thing I do will be some prosthetic-heavy part, playing a cow or something.”

That’s still some way off though, with production on Breaking Dawn beginning later this year.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens on July 1

Note: His comment to the “Tabloid” was debunked earlier this year. Except for that part, the actual interview seems legit. I’m not sure about the credibility of the source, hopefully it’s real. Enough of fake interviews.

Video: Full Interview Robert Pattinson Did With Polish TV   4 comments

Here’s the full video of Robert Pattinson’s interview with Polish TV. Translation Added.

Translation- by lalaith466 at Pattinsonlife via RPLife

R: He has been learning Polish for three weeks.
I: Why?
R: He says he have to speak Polish in his new film. He said ‘podnie? nog?’ in Polish – it means ‘lift your leg up’.
I: It’s quite a weird request.
R He knows and doesn’t mean the interviewer to raise her leg.
I: It’s funny he chose this to tell her.
R: He forgot for a moment what it means in English but now he knows and feels embarrassed. He says it in the scene with an elephant.
I: It explains a lot.

I: In Eclipse there are two main plots: love of Bella and Edward and rivalry of Edward and Jacob.
The trio had to shoot many scenes together. She hopes they get along with each other.
R: They always get along with each other. It’s wonderful what happened to them but success didn’t go to their heads.
Twilight has become a big phenomenon but they were together in it from the start and they supported each other and it’s amazing.

I: She has read he didn’t want to go to the test shooting because he was afraid he was not able to play perfection of Edward.
R: He says that it’s funny because later he decided he would play Edward as so insecure and doubtful about himself as you could only imagine.
I: She asked if the fact he’s British helped.
R: Yeah, definitely. Now when he thinks about it, it seems he played himself.
But it’s funny because everyone thought Edward should be someone with absolute self-confidence all the time.
He never wanted to play him that way and finally everyone accepted it

I: He was named the best dressed man in the world. It’s funny because as a British he rather doesn’t mind what he wears, does he?
R: He doesn’t. He jokes he is wearing the same clothes all the week.
I: A British friend of hers told her once they don’t like when somebody pay attention to what they wear because it’s so shallow and facile.
Is it true?
R: He doesn’t know if it is some British mind-set but he thinks so. He is embarrassed when he is dressed to kill.
He doesn’t like wear new clothes and anything flashy.
I: Last time when she interviewed him he had a ripped jacket. She asked if it was intentionally.
R: He jokes probably it was.
I: It was during Remember Me promotion, it was yellow jacket.
R: He seems not to remember he has the one 😉

I:What does he think about the title the sexiest man alive?
R: He jokes it’s obvious, he thinks there wasn’t any competition.
I: The title seems so silly – “the sexiest man alive”. She says he is British guy so he is supposed to be cynical.
R: Everyone who was named the sexiest in the world made a special interview about it
but he said: no way, I’m won’t make an interview about what is a feeling to be the sexiest man alive.
I: He had to feel idiotic.
R: He said to them: you’re insane. Don’t you see you look like complete morons?
So he didn’t give the interview an thinks and everyone was pissed about it.

I: Do people often think Robert is Edward? That he is the character he plays.
R: He says at the beginning it was frequent. At the fan conventions everyone believed the character stepped from book into real world.
I: Did they call him Edward?
R: Yes, they couldn’t understand they’re normal people.
I: Friends of hers ask their boyfriends: Will you be my Edward?
How did the movie affect his relationships with women? The expectations have to be high.
R: He is coping with it. He likes pressure. It makes him better.
