New Robert Pattinson interview with Telegraph UK   2 comments


He has millions of female fans, he lives in Los Angeles and paparazzi dog his footsteps wherever he goes; yet it would be difficult to find a young man less interested in embracing his stardom than Robert Pattinson. The 28-year-old actor refuses to go the Hollywood route of big houses, wardrobes full of designer clothes and roles that utilise his boyish good looks.
He has even rejected the idea of taking the near-obligatory therapy route followed by nearly every self-absorbed star in Hollywood, although he jokes: “I would love to go into therapy but it makes me too anxious.”

Then, more seriously, he adds: “I’ve been talking to a lot of people about it and I don’t know. I kind of like my anxiety in a funny sort of way and I like my peaks and troughs. Luckily depression never lasts long with me.”

Robert Pattinson mention – How British actors are dominating Hollywood like never before   1 comment

The Telegraph on-line posted this article that mentions Robert Pattinson

In the 30 years since Colin Welland collected an Oscar for Chariots of Fire and famously declared: “The British are coming!” there have been plenty of false dawns.

British actors flocked to Hollywood only to find themselves cast repeatedly as villains, fops and toffs. But this year’s Cannes Film Festival proves that US studios have finally fallen for the charms of the British leading man.

The three major US films in competition all have British actors playing American leads.

Tom Hardy is the star of Lawless, a Prohibition-era gangster film in which he plays the toughest of three bootlegging brothers in rural Virginia.

Robert Pattinson, he of the teen Twilight franchise, plays the lead in another literary adaptation, Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis, as a billionaire Manhattanite.

And the long-awaited adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, that most quintessential of American novels, stars Yorkshire’s Sam Riley as Sal Paradise.

It is a state of affairs mirrored in US television, where British actors are slipping seamlessly into US lead roles, from Hugh Laurie in House to Damian Lewis and David Harewood in Homeland.

Industry watchers say we have entered a golden age for Brits in Hollywood.

“It’s what I call ‘Hugh Laurie Syndrome,” said Tim Gray, editor of trade bible Variety.

“When Laurie appeared in House, Americans said, ‘Who is this actor? I love him, he’s great’. Then we found out he’s British, and it’s like a magician has pulled a trick on you. People like to be fooled sometimes.

“In films, it started with Christian Bale in Batman, who showed that British actors can be better at playing Americans than Americans themselves.

“And now it really is a trend. Hollywood people are very imitative, very superstitious. If something is successful, then let’s repeat it.

“Also, there are a lot of good actors in the world. If you go to any gym in LA, you walk in and there’s 10 really great-looking actors working out. Go to an audition and there’s 20 great-looking actors sitting there. So if you’re looking for somebody with something different, British actors stand out. And there is that element of snob appeal: ‘He’s not only talented but he’s a Brit.’”

The new wave of British actors have also mastered flawless American accents.

Gray said: “In the 1970s, the British would push it a little too hard, they over-enunciated and would say, ‘You stoopid person’.

“Now they are really good. It’s partly the training, and partly because British actors I talk to say they grew up watching US films and TV shows.

New Interviews – Christina Ricci talks about Robert Pattinson   1 comment

Christina Ricci talks about Robert Pattinson

MSN France – at 0.25 and 0.50

The Telegraph – Starts at 0:50

The Mirror

“He is one of the most bankable, handsome film stars in the world, and a household name having starred most famously as hunky Edward Cullen in the box office-storming Twilight series, and as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter films.

Yet Christina Ricci knew almost nothing about Robert Pattinson, and had seen none of his movies, when they met on the set of the new erotic drama Bel Ami.

However, they still hit it off like old friends and turned a sometimes difficult film shoot into a fun-filled frolic.

“We would just goof off and laugh while we were working,” says Christina, 32.

“He’s a sweet guy and super funny… and a really good kisser.”

It was therefore easy for her to understand why Rob’s girlfriend, Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart, paid so many visits to the set.

“He’s so charming and smart,” Christina continues. “He’s so organised and in charge of his career. He was actually giving me advice,” adds Californian Ricci, who has been acting since she was nine years old.

Bel Ami, based on the 1885 French novel by Guy de Maupassant, has a stellar cast which also includes Kristin Scott Thomas and Uma Thurman, and is executive produced by the Beckhams’ manager Simon Fuller.

Christina plays the married but naive Clotilde de Marelle, a Parisian society lady who is seduced by Pattinson’s manipulative and immoral Georges Duroy.

Her favourite parts of filming, she says, were “the costumes, the makeup and Rob”.
