David Cronenberg Talks About Rob With The Sunday Times   2 comments

On the many critics who have since taken chunks out of Cosmopolis for being alienating and cold, he scoffs, “Rob [Robert Pattinson] told me that he’d read a description of the film as ‘aggressively unloveable’! And I thought, ‘Well I rather like that!’ Because if you’re not making movies that are desperate to be loved — and I’m not — then you expose yourself to all kinds of attacks and criticism and misunderstandings.”

Rob talks Cosmopolis, critcs and more with The Guardian UK: “R-Patz” is dead: meet Robert Pattinson   2 comments

“I don’t really know how accepted I am,” says Robert Pattinson as he sips on an enormous paper cup of Coke. “Nothing ever matters to me apart from the people with negative opinions. That’s literally it. That always drives me on to the next thing. It’s funny, you just focus on them and then the next movie. That’s the only thing you’re thinking about when it comes out.”

For someone with the world at his feet – he has the Twilight franchise behind him and David Cronenberg’s icy drama Cosmopolis as his next release – Pattinson gives a good impression of a man plagued with self-doubt. “I’ve never really taken myself seriously as an actor,” he says, fresh off a plane from Germany, where, he notes by the by, everybody seems to hate him.

New Robert Pattinson Interview with Total Film – Talks Cosmopolis, Mission: Blacklist, The Rover and BD – Part 2   3 comments

Let’s talk about Cosmopolis. It’s a game-changer for you…
I saw it and I liked it. I don’t normally like my stuff but I didn’t really recognise myself.

How did David Cronenberg guide your performance?
We both started out not really knowing exactly what it was about but knowing it was interesting. I was trying to prepare for it, but the time it felt most right [while filming] was when you didn’t know what you were doing. David had this uncanny sense of seeing when I didn’t know what I was doing and that was always the take that he liked.

There’s a scene where you have an anal examination…
David told me that the shot was going to be from between my legs. He knew I was a young actor trying to look I was willing to do anything for the job. He was like, “I want to shoot it… and just cup the frame with your balls at the top.” I genuinely believed him and had to go to his trailer and say, “I dunno if I can do that…”

Was taking the film out ot Cannes a validation for you?
It’s amazing. I was so terrified to do it at the beginning and thought I was going to fuck it up and everyone’s going to say “Cronenberg’s sold out…” so to get it at Cannes is the coolest thing ever. Getting the movie, getting it to Cannes and getting the movie I got recently are three of the happiest moments of my life.

Speaking of the next movie…
I’m doing Mission: Blacklist with Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire who made Johnny Mad Dog. Hopefully that’ll shoot in Iraq, which will be fun. Then I’m doing Rover with [Animal Kingdom’s] David Michôd.

And Breaking Dawn: Part 2 – what can fans expect?
It’s one of the funniest ones out of all of them. I think Bill [Condon, director] has really captured the absurdity of it.

Will it be a relief not to go back to being Edward Cullen?
A relief not to put the contact lenses in. It’s been absolutely awful having those stupid things in my eyes. Even if they said, “We’ll give you a billion dollars to do ti again,” I don’t now that I’d want to!

New Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg interview with CTV News – Toronto Press Junket   1 comment

“Twilight” star Robert Pattinson may seem like nothing more than a teen heartthrob to his critics. But his detractors may change their minds after watching his risky performance in the new David Cronenberg film, “Cosmopolis.”

In Canadian theatres on Friday, Pattinson headlines this masterful and, at times, chilling adaptation of Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel, “Cosmopolis.”

True to DeLillo’s satirical work, the British actor plays billionaire Eric Packer, a young fund manager who experiences a meltdown one day as he cruises through Manhattan in the back of a stretch limo. As Packer’s trip to the hairdresser unfolds, he glides in and out of the lives of strangers, businesses associates and his wife Elise (played by Sarah Gadon).

Inside this strange world on wheels, Packer can access everything he needs: food, data about the stock market, sex, booze and a toilet. He even gets a check-up in the back of the limo from his doctor, who tells Packer, “You have an asymmetrical prostate.”
