Robert Pattinson Interview with Le Figaro – France   Leave a comment

Google Translate for now:



On a terrace at the windswept the Palais des Festivals, a man with his head tucked into his shoulders, pulls on his cigarette. A bodyguard stands a few meters from him. The anonymous smoker is Robert Pattinson. With two films in the official selection, Maps To The Stars, by David Cronenberg, and The Rover, by David Michôd, the actor was one of the attractions in Cannes. When you arrive at our rendezvous on the Croisette, he was not very fresh. The day before he was closing the Silencio, the Parisian club relocated during the festival . He woke up ten minutes before appointments with the press.

More after the jump!

He is tired and spontaneous, willing to talk about these two filmmakers who helped bury the sexy vampire. The hero of the Twilight Saga first pay its debt to the Canadian Cronenberg. As in Cosmopolis, in 2012, Pattinson is back in a limousine in Maps to the Stars, but this time behind the wheel. “This is a secondary part, but I said yes before even reading the script. I’d do anything with this guy.” His character is a limo driver in Hollywood who presents himself as an “actor writer.” “I used to say that at the beginning but not anymore,” jokes the British that moved to Los Angeles several years ago. “I missed London at the beginning, but most of my friends left and Los Angeles is a beautiful city, dynamic. And at the same time very weid. Everything depends on the people you hang out…”

Simple Pleasures
In Hollywood, scripts and filmmakers go to him. Thus David Michôd, whose Pattinson admires his first film, Animal Kingdom, the meeting and chose from thousands of actors. Why him? “Because his face fascinates me, it is both beautiful and unusual,” the director tells us. The actor spent seven weeks in the Australian desert, a nine-hour drive from the nearest town. He enjoys solitude, a real luxury for this young 28 year old man harassed by paparazzi.
After his love story and breakup with his partner from Twilight, Kristen Stewart, who made him the preferred prey of the tabloids, the star has rediscovered the simple pleasures: “I loved being able to pee quietly in the nature.” The former model has also enjoyed a little crushing his teen icon image with a borderline character. “At the first reading, I wondered if this guy was mentally handicapped. David Michôd told me he didn’t know. I’ve also did a lot of improvisation, but I think they have all been cut!”

Since Pattinson filmed with Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. It was announced upcoming films with James Gray, Harmony Korine and Olivier Assayas. He would even be one of the contenders for the part of Indiana Jones , replacing Harrison Ford. Boost his career which doesn’t need.
