Rob Pattinson talks about Cosmopolis, Mission: Blacklist, The Rover and BD - Part 2 with Total Film

>> 2012/06/10

Let's talk about Cosmopolis. It's a game-changer for you...
I saw it and I liked it. I don't normally like my stuff but I didn't really recognise myself.

How did David Cronenberg guide your performance?
We both started out not really knowing exactly what it was about but knowing it was interesting. I was trying to prepare for it, but the time it felt most right [while filming] was when you didn't know what you were doing. David had this uncanny sense of seeing when I didn't know what I was doing and that was always the take that he liked.

There's a scene where you have an anal examination...
David told me that the shot was going to be from between my legs. He knew I was a young actor trying to look I was willing to do anything for the job. He was like, "I want to shoot it... and just cup the frame with your balls at the top." I genuinely believed him and had to go to his trailer and say, "I dunno if I can do that..."

Was taking the film out ot Cannes a validation for you?
It's amazing. I was so terrified to do it at the beginning and thought I was going to fuck it up and everyone's going to say "Cronenberg's sold out..." so to get it at Cannes is the coolest thing ever. Getting the movie, getting it to Cannes and getting the movie I got recently are three of the happiest moments of my life.

Speaking of the next movie...
I'm doing Mission: Blacklist with Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire who made Johnny Mad Dog. Hopefully that'll shoot in Iraq, which will be fun. Then I'm doing Rover with [Animal Kingdom's] David Michôd.

And Breaking Dawn: Part 2 - what can fans expect?
It's one of the funniest ones out of all of them. I think Bill [Condon, director] has really captured the absurdity of it.

Will it be a relief not to go back to being Edward Cullen?
A relief not to put the contact lenses in. It's been absolutely awful having those stupid things in my eyes. Even if they said, "We'll give you a billion dollars to do it again," I don't now that I'd want to!

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,
and "Let Me Sign", which was written by Marcus Foster and Bobby Long.
The soundtrack for the film How To Be features three original songs performed by Pattinson and written by composer Joe Hastings.
