New Robert Pattinson interview with The Hollywood Reporter from the LA Premiere   Leave a comment

PATTINSONLIFE061214-199 (72)

The screams of teenage girls could be heard for miles as Robert Pattinson hit the Los Angeles Regency Bruin Theatre on Thursday night at the U.S. premiere of The Rover.

The British star, donned in a navy blue Alexander McQueen suit, hit the red carpet with writer and director David Michod, producers David Linde and Liz Watts, and costar Guy Pearce for the film’s Los Angeles debut.
Made famous for his leading role in the Twilight saga, the actor told The Hollywood Reporter that he is not confining his career to a specific genre. “I’m not really trying to break out of anything. I feel like every single movie I’ve done is part of the same road. I’m not trying to distance myself of anything particularly,” Pattinson said. “I just hope people like [the film].”

Set a decade following a global economic depression, The Rover tells the story of Eric (Pearce), who relentlessly pursues a brutal gang in the Australian outback that steal his car: his only remaining possession. Left abandoned by his brother and fellow gang members, Rey (Pattinson) is forced to guide Eric in tracking down the brutal clan.

“To be honest, [The Rover] did come to me from a place of anger, when it was a despair and anger that I was feeling about the state of the world today,” Michod explained. “The movie is set a few decades in the future, but it isn’t set for post apocalypse. Michod wanted the evils showcased in the film to be “directly connected” and representative of the wrongs seen and experienced in “the world today.

While filming, the cast and crew endured extreme heat (just over 110 degrees), rain storms and outback flies, which are apparent throughout the movie. “It always helps to be in real locations,” Pearce said. “That extreme heat, those flies, and that vast expanse of desert — it just adds to it, like you’re putting on a costume. It takes you there.”

Though each role was a deciding factor in choosing to partake in the project, both Pearce and Pattinson remarked that Michod’s directorship was ultimately why they committed to the film. “It wasn’t the role that drew me to the film. It was the script and David that drew me to the film…this time it was really about David being the filmmaker that he is,” Pearce revealed. Pattinson also remarked: “I really like David a lot. I love Animal Kingdom…[the script] just seemed so different and original…it was a bit of a no brainer.”

Audiences can expect to see another set of Pattinsnon’s acting talents in gangster-type film Idol’s Eye alongside Robert De Niro out at the end of this year, which still comes as a surprise to him: “It sounds crazy for me to say…that’s something which I’ve wanted – which I think anyone — would want to do.”
Though the Rover star is seemingly normal and content with the simple things in life, including inflatable furniture, driving a 1989 BMW, and downsizing from a $6.27 million home to a rental, he is a man of mystery. “[I have] lots and lots of secrets, that will remain secrets forever.”

Following the premiere, an exclusive after party at the W Hotel in Westwood drew the likes of Neighbors star Zac Efron, Katy Perry and Michelle Rodriguez. Party-goers were served an assortment of appetizers including sliders, mini pigs in a blanket, chicken skewers and an array of desserts at a chocolate fondue bar.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

At the apex of his fame, the star of June’s “The Rover” sold his $6 million house (“too big”) and began sidling up to top directors, two of whose movies he starred in at Cannes: “I don’t need anything. I don’t want anything at all.

On April 21, 2012, Robert Pattinson slipped into a rented Toyota Camry and set out on the 10-minute drive from his home in L.A.’s Los Feliz to Koreatown. The actor was anxious; he was about to audition for a role he desperately wanted, and auditions are hardly his forte. “I hate auditioning,” he says. “I just can’t do it. I get so nervous, like cripplingly nervous. I’m bad at them, and I feel awful afterward.” Nor were his nerves soothed by his recent forays into indie film. Such pictures as Bel Ami and Little Ashes had come and gone with more of a fizzle than a bang, and Cosmopolis would sputter out soon — all mere squibs compared to the supernova Twilight, which earned $3.3 billion at the box office and brought Pattinson $20 million for its final installment alone.
He wanted this part — needed it, even — to prove he no longer was just a dark, brooding, iridescent, slightly humorless, 100-year-old vampire named Edward Cullen. So he arrived at his destination young, handsome, famous and worried as hell. “It was terrifying,” he says. “It’s kind of rare that I really, really want stuff.
He shouldn’t have stressed (though maybe that helped). “He came through with flying colors,” says David Michod, the Australian director of 2010’s Animal Kingdom, who put the actor through his paces in a marathon three-hour meeting that included lengthy conversations, scene readings and improvisation, all to see if he could play a slow-witted gang member who sets out on a road trip with Guy Pearce across a dystopian Australia in search of the latter’s stolen car. “He came the closest of any actor to walking into the room with a beautiful, fully realized version of the character that was not dissimilar to mine. It was exhilarating because I could suddenly see the movie.”

The Hollywood Reporter about the LA Dance Project + Robert Pattinson mention and quotes   Leave a comment

From The Hollywood Reporter

Before a crowd that included Dita von Teese, Chris Evans, philanthropist Wallis Annenberg and Robert Pattinson (drinking Coronas and using an electronic cigarette), Millepied’s L.A. Dance Project company performed three pieces, including a new piece by Millepied (with costumes by Rodarte) and a dark, shadowy work by the late legendary choreographer Merce Cunningham that had not been performed in 50 years.

(…)

Portman and Millepied, plus von Teese, Pattinson and around 120 other guests, attended a pre-performance dinner at Disney Concert Hall sponsored by Van Cleef & Arpels and then all hung out for the after-party in an event area off the main lobby. Pattinson — who is friends with Portman and Millepied and is said to live near them in Los Angeles — told THR that he loved the performances but can’t see himself ever dancing in a film: “I was inspired but I know my limitations.” If he’d had to dance for a role, “I wouldn’t have gotten it.”
