Preview of New Interview and Magazine Feature with Vanity Fair Italy

He likes to think of as cynical as the character he plays in Cosmopolis, his new film in competition at Cannes, “but the reality is that they are naive.” But the rest has clear ideas
Men in suits, bodyguard in mirrored sunglasses and earphones. The sky above Mahhattan is a gray and, during the two hours of Cosmopolis, will turn increasingly to black.
Eric Packer, golden boy of finance, enter into a limo and its driver, face sculpted by man of the Russian intelligence services, informs him that traffic was paralyzed for the visit of President of the United States. But he is not interested, now just needs a good haircut, and the only barber in a position to satisfy is in the other side of town. (…)
To transpose into a Hollywood movie one of the most visionary novels of Don DeLillo – written in 2001, is a prophecy of Occupy Wall Street and everything that we are living – was an impossible task that only a director like David Cronenberg’s brave could succeed. And just as brave as a director David Cronenberg was reminded of entrusting the starring Robert Pattinson.
It is true that Pattinson is not only Twilight, the saga will end November 14 with
Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Between one episode and others, he also starred in Remember Me (2010), Water for Elephants (2011) and the recent Bel Ami. But it is clear that a character like this can do for him the difference between staying anchored to the fangs of the vampire Edward Cullen and be admitted into the club of actors to Serie A.
In Cosmopolis – premiering at Cannes – Pattinson keeps the pallor that made fall in love all over the world, girls and boys grew up, the romantic air of Edward, however, has disappeared. (…)

Preview of the interview (translation: herm-weasley from pattinsonlife)

Do you have any idea why David Cronenberg chose you?
I don’t, to be honest. But I never wondered why, I’m just happy he did.
In “Cosmopolis” there are sex scenes which are quite explicit: weren’t you embarrassed?
I was more nervous for the actresses. When a man takes off his clothes he may feel stupid, but in the end he enjoys himself. I think it’s different for a woman, more problematic.
In real life, are you more sweet or passionate?
Passionate, I hope.
One of your best friends, British actor Tom Sturridge, is having a baby with Sienna Miller. Would you like to become a father?
Sure. Not right now, but yes, of course.
Have you made any plans with Kristen yet?
Not yet. We haven’t planned anything.
Do you feel ready to move in with her?
[sings to hide the embarrassment] I’m ready for everything.

Biography

Robert Thomas-Pattinson was born on May 13, 1986, in Barnes, a suburb of London, the capital of England. His mother, Clare, worked for a modeling agency, and his father, Richard, imported vintage cars from the U.S. Robert is the youngest of three kids in the Pattinson family, and the only son. He has two older sisters. Elizabeth is three years older than he is, and Victoria is five years older. Pattinson became involved in amateur theatre through the Barnes Theatre Company. After some backstage experience there, he took on acting roles. He caught the attention of an acting agent in a production of Tess of the D'Urbervilles and began looking for professional roles. Since then he has performed in an amateur version of Macbeth at the Old Sorting Office Arts Centre, as well as trying his hand at modeling. more

Musical career

Pattinson plays guitar and piano, and composes his own music. He also appears as the singer of two songs on the Twilight soundtrack:
"Never Think", which he co-wrote with Sam Bradley,
