New Robert Pattinson interview with ‘The Huffington Post’

PATTINSONLIFE-TRA2014 (6)Robert Pattinson is tired.

The 28-year-old has spent the better part of the last month doing press for David Michôd’s “The Rover,” a slow-burn thriller that’s caked in equal parts dirt, dried blood and nihilism. Pattinson has appeared on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter. He’s done interviews with BuzzFeed, The Daily Beast, Indiewire, Jimmy Kimmel and, now, The Huffington Post. “It was good in theory,” Pattinson said of the press gauntlet, before trailing off.

Fortunately, the performance Pattinson is promoting is one of his best yet. He plays Rey in “The Rover,” a simple-minded criminal who gets left for dead by his brother in post-apocalyptic Australia and then goes on a journey of revenge with Eric (Guy Pearce), a man also wronged by Rey’s sibling.

“I think lots of people want to do stuff that’s relatable, and I want to do stuff that’s unrelatable,” Pattinson said of his career outlook in general. “I don’t think I have particularly normal emotional reactions to things. So trying to play someone who is just a normal guy … I don’t really know how to do it.”

HuffPost Entertainment spoke to Pattinson at the Bowery Hotel in Manhattan about “The Rover,” his relationship with tabloid media and the never-ending cycle of rumors about his career.
