Here are some quotes of Robert Pattinson from his interview with Jolie Magazine
Bye-bye, vampire! The Briton has an appetite for new roles. But do not worry: he is as sexy as ever
Curly hair, bedroom eyes and a couple of three-day stubble on his face – as shown in the photo on the right, that’s how you know Robert Pattinson. But to the interview in Berlin, he appears with a handsome hipster beard. An attempt to escape the Twilight fans undetected? No, laughs the 29-year-old, the beard is for his new movie The Childhood of a Leader. And says: -We are just through with the shooting, but maybe I leave the beard for a while. Somehow I like it…. This days , however, Robert is on the screen as clean-shaven as in his best vampire days to see. And that even twice: on the side of Nicole Kidman in Werner Herzog’s desert epos queen of the desert and as a photographer of James Dean in Life.
Jolie: Your new films have nothing to do with the Twilight- romances, with which you got famous. How difficult was it to leave the old Edward behind him?
Robert Pattinson: Very difficult. But So I’ve expected it. My agent had then warned me that it would certainly take a decade until I could take the next step in my career. And I’m afraid he was right. Now seven years have passed, and I realize now that my life is slowly changing a bit. This frustrating feeling of having somehow lost control and just trying to stay afloat in the hustle and bustle, is thankfully gone. And not for nothing I look now for completely different films.
Has it been no fun at all to be a teen idol?
Yes, of course. That was all incredibly exciting. most amazing was the year between the end of filming and the theatrical release of the first Twilight film. I was able to enjoy photo shoots and travel because no one knew me then . And when it really started , even that was not only exhausting. Suddenly I came in clubs where the doorman had sent me away half a year ago . Also, I was luckily already 21, so not so young that the excitement would have derail me. And I could even drink alcohol in the US!
How did you manage it, not to loose the ground?
I’ve always had the feeling of having to prove myself as an actor, as a star, as a human being. This might have kept me more on the ground. Although I have often wished I had a bigger ego – then I might have been able to enjoy the bustle a bit more.
Do you have a lack of self-confidence?
Well, someone who voluntarily stands in front of a camera needs to have a bit self-confidence. Nevertheless, I am also shy. And a little control freak. Not the best combination for an actor, because the control has indeed the director …
Since the beginning of the year you’re engaged with your girlfriend FKA twigs. Can you also imagine to become a father?
Definitely, although I still do not know when. Therefore, I was so attracted by the role in LIFE. At my age, you do not get so many chances to play a father – and certainly not one who leaves his family in the lurch. Personally I imagine it different, of course.
Could it be difficult for a child to grow up with such a famous father?
I don’t think so .. Sure I will have a child who is totally cool and confident. He or she will probably look at me every day and think to yourself: Actually Why is this guy such a funny, quirky oddball?
