Yahoo!: Robert Pattinson on Escaping Twi-Hard Expectations and Dodging the Paparazzi

Yahoo!: Robert Pattinson on Escaping Twi-Hard Expectations and Dodging the Paparazzi | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

The Twilight movies were clearly a huge blessing for Robert Pattinson, but also somewhat of a curse: The 28-year-old Brit has been working overtime to break out of the pin-up mold, gravitating toward edgy indies like David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis and this week’s The Rover, directed by Animal Kingdom filmmaker David Michôd. 

The sometimes brutally violent film features Pattinson as a left-for-dead "half-wit" who joins a vengeful Guy Pearce as they travel across a rural, post-apocalyptic Australia. The very candid Pattinson talked to us about getting down-and-dirty for the role, his strategy for keeping photographers away, and what artist has reignited his love for hip-hop.

 

Q: Is there any part of you that misses the sheer madness that accompanied the Twilight series?
A: Um… when you're doing the movies, it's the same thing. I've realized how much I loved shooting way outside of the city, because I just can't stand people taking photos. Even when I was just doing this movie Life in Toronto, we were still out in the middle of nowhere, but it was only about an hour from Toronto. And just everyday, there's [paparazzi] taking photos with long lenses. And then you can't talk to anybody on the crew unless you want to have a million photographs. And I feel like I'm putting money into those guys' pockets by just standing outside. So I'll constantly hide to make their life as difficult as possible. But then it makes your life difficult as well.

Q: Has it become kind of a game ducking them, or is it just pure annoyance?
A: It's literally just [that] I don't want them to have anything for free. And people who see the pictures, they just assume if you're getting photographed a lot, it's because you want to. So if you try to claim privacy afterwards, they'll be like, "Well what you didn't care that time." So you have to be pretty consistent, and say like, "I never want to get photographed, ever."

Q: Do you ever have to go out in disguise?
A: It never really works. But I do have a lot of little tricks, like car switches and stuff. You end up being like a bit of a spy. [laughs] Very covert.

MTV: Robert Pattinson Confronts Bullying In 'The Rover'

MTV: Robert Pattinson Confronts Bullying In 'The Rover' | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

It’s a very different turn for Robert Pattinson, who, up until recently, was best known for his heartthrob role as Edward Cullen in the “Twilight” series. Pattinson has made an active effort to take on radically new roles, what with David Cronenberg’s supremely surreal “Cosmopolis,” and now “The Rover.” Here, Pattinson presents himself without his signature locks, opting instead for a closely-cropped buzz cut. His trademark smile is not a thing of beauty here, thanks to a thick layer of dirt and grime on his teeth. As Rey, Pattinson presents a character who isn’t the brightest bulb in the bunch — but just might be one of the most vulnerable.

“He’s like Bambi,” Pattinson told MTV News. “He’s been really, severely bullied and told that there’s something wrong with him for so long. He’s never been asked the [right] questions or anything. Even when Guy’s character is incredibly abusive, it’s really the first time Rey’s been told to think, and the mechanism of thinking isn’t really there.”

Robert Pattinson Interview with Indiewire about 'The Rover' and How He Chooses His Projects Post-'Twilight'

Robert Pattinson Interview with Indiewire about 'The Rover' and How He Chooses His Projects Post-'Twilight' | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Indiewire spoke with Pattinson about this challenging post-apocalyptic role.

Q: David said he put you through the "wringer" during your three hour audition for the part. What did he make you do?

A: I mean, he did it at his house in LA. I don't know, it was kind of, it was slightly nerve-wracking. I always get incredible anxiety attacks when I audition. I try to avoid them at all costs. But I loved the script so much. I had an idea of how to do it as soon as I read it. 

[The audition] was just long. Normally you do two takes in an audition and that's that. I think that's why I've always messed them up over the years... I also had a really good actor reading with me as well, which helps. But yeah, I mean, it wasn't like it was grueling or anything. It was quite exhilarating. You could tell that David was great even in the audition. I would have almost been happy not getting it. It was a great experience just doing the audition.

Q: You obviously sold him on your interpretation of the character. What specifically was it about Rey that clicked with you?

A: I really like the structure of the character. There's basically only two long dialogue scenes where he reveals anything about himself, when he's not under total duress. But I really like having these incredibly dense dialogue scenes that are filled with subtext. Even the rhythm and the cadence of his speech reveals a lot, and it's put in the context of a sort of stark story, where people don't really speak in any other scene. It just allowed you to do tons with the character. It was so loose. That really appealed to me.

Courier Mail: Robert Pattinson puts stake through Edward Cullen’s heart with ‘career redefining’ role in The Rover

Courier Mail: Robert Pattinson puts stake through Edward Cullen’s heart with ‘career redefining’ role in The Rover | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Several quotes:

“I am constantly being prompted to say how awful it was,’’ Pattinson said during a press conference last week ahead of the film’s Australian premiere at the Sydney Film Festival [about filming in hot desert].

But I really liked it. I just found it incredibly serene being able to look to the horizon. I liked the hardness of the landscape as well. There’s something strangely mystical about it.”

“I never really had anyone pick on me at school. I think I just managed to skirt the edge of every different little group imaginable,’’ says Pattinson.

“But for some reason, I just got Rey, who has been bullied his whole life.

“I think it’s about fear as well. And I guess maybe the last few years, being a little scared of crowds, being a little bit paranoid when you are walking down the street, that fed into it a little bit.

“(That sense of) being extremely wary and also not knowing how people will react. There are trust issues there. Being a little more isolated, you get bit dislocated from normal behaviour.

“Rey is looking at people not knowing whether they are going to slap him or laugh.”

Several excerpts:

Q: I know you hadn’t seen the ‘Twilight’ movies before casting Robert Pattinson, but what does his fame bring to this movie? Does that help? Can it possibly hurt?
A: I don’t know, it’s all a great unknown to me. You know, I love the idea of being able to take a person who I can only imagine his talents have been grossly underestimated.

Q: This is a good movie for him, along with the Cronenberg films.
A: He’s a really smart guy with great taste. And he knows the filmmakers that he wants to work with. But, who knows what it will mean for the movie in the public consciousness, you know? I have no idea whether or not it will work for us or against us. But, I don’t really care — because I love the surprise and the revelation of it. And I would hope that people embrace it, because I think he’s really good in it. It was never going to be enough for me that he gave just a good, solid performance. It was always important for me that he give an extraordinary one — and I think he does it. He and Guy both.

Q: Whose idea was it for Robert Pattinson’s character to have tics?
A: That was his. They felt organic. I don’t know how conscious and deliberate they were for him, but when I was watching them, they felt like this nice little organic manifestations of the character.

Q: And you dirtied him up.
A: [Laughs] It had to happen. For me, Rob’s character is like a lost puppy dog. He’s lost his owner and he just kind of latches on to the first person he finds. It happens to be a particularly bad choice.

ASOS Australia: Robert Pattinson talks The Rover | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Q: Hi Robert! Welcome to Sydney. Tell us, what piqued your interest in the film?

A: ‘I thought the script was so sparse and direct. It even looked different on the page, like the formatting was different. There were no commas! I thought it was so original, and my agent told me it was an offer, and I was like “Really? I never get offered stuffed like this!” And then he was like… “Oh no, I sent you the wrong email, everyone’s auditioning for this.” [laughs].’

Q: How would you describe your character, Rey?

A: ‘He’s very… dependent. He’s been told by everyone around him that there’s something wrong with him, that he’s kind of deficient in some way, and it’s not really established whether he is or he isn’t.’

Q: What were some of the challenges in bringing Rey to life? 
A: ‘Mainly the costume! It sounds ridiculous but that was the most important part. As soon as I got the right pair of jeans – we went through, like, a million pairs of jeans! – And once we found the right jeans for him to plod around him, and sneakers that were slightly too big, [it all came together].’

Q: Can definitely relate to that feeling! How important is fashion and costume is to a movie? Is it something you really focused on?

A: ‘It’s massive for me! It’s weird though; I had such a specific look in [The Rover] – down to the colours of the t-shirt. We did a few screen tests and [when you have the right clothes] you suddenly walk different.’

Variety | 'The Rover' Premiere: Producer Praises Robert Pattinson as 'Consummate Actor'

Variety | 'The Rover' Premiere: Producer Praises Robert Pattinson as 'Consummate Actor' | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

After a starry premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Robert Pattinson, Guy Pearce and director David Michod brought "The Rover" to LA.

Michod told Variety that he hadn’t been familiar with Pattinson’s previous work. “Rob just came in and did a beautiful audition for me that was both vulnerable and completely alive,” he said.

“This proved that seeing him work with Guy Pearce and Scoot McNairy, we realize he’s a consummate actor,” added producer David Linde. “He’s in the ‘Twilight’ movies and people don’t think of him in this way, but as you see in this movie he’s the real deal.”

For Pattinson, he said his goal is to work with good, ambitious directors. “These roles just don’t come up that often,” he said. “A script like this is so rare, I mean, it’s in the top five scripts I’ve ever read.”

“I like how my character was set up. It was just sort of two really dense dialogue heavy scenes in the midst of almost no dialogue, so it let you be pretty free to do anything with it,” said Pattinson.

And on his character: “I think he’s someone who’s been regarded by absolutely everyone around him of having something wrong with him his whole life and he’s never required to think for himself. So when Erik (played by Pearce) kidnaps/adopts him, it forces him to think, (but) the mechanism of thought is so rusty, he has to kind of force it out and it’s almost like he’s being born again.”

The Daily Beast: Robert Pattinson’s Life After ‘Twilight’

The Daily Beast: Robert Pattinson’s Life After ‘Twilight’ | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Robert Pattinson isn’t Edward Cullen anymore.

…in the years since the final Twilight installment came and went from theaters, Pattinson has begun to accomplish the impossible. Again and again he has chosen to work with brilliant auteurs—Werner Herzog, David Cronenberg, James Gray, Olivier Assayas—and again and again he has stunned audiences with his smart, sensitive, and very un-Cullen-like performances….

To discuss his work in The Rover—and his career more generally—Pattinson recently sat down with The Daily Beast in Los Angeles... He went on to talk about why Twilight has become a burden; why he could never do what Jennifer Lawrence does; and why he loves to work with auteurs such as Harmony Korine, with whom he’s planning to collaborate next. Pattinson also shot down the rumors that he will be taking over for Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones or Han Solo in the near future—although he didn’t shut the door on all future franchises.

“I never even thought of all the Twilights as a single entity. They were all separate movies for me. I mean, I forget how to act in between every single movie. [Laughs] But I’ve always thought that nothing comes for free. You get paid a bunch of money. You get a bunch of opportunities. And you’ve got to pay for it somehow. And in my case, I paid for it by having to figure out how to walk down the street [without getting mobbed]. I paid for it by people thinking I was one thing. That’s my major desire as an actor—to have no one know who I am. To have no preconceptions. So obviously when a character becomes iconic, you have to deal with the baggage that comes with it.

All throughout doing Twilight, I got asked whether I was afraid of getting typecast. I started thinking, “Yeah, I guess I am.” Then I got cast in Cosmopolis, which was just so far from my wheelhouse, and I was like, “Oh, I guess I shouldn’t be afraid of being typecast anymore.” It freed me up. And I loved the experience so much—getting into Cannes was such a massive deal to me. I’m just trying to go after that again.

I like what Joaquin [Phoenix] has done. I’m always looking at his stuff—he’s been the most influential actor on me. And in a lot of ways I like Guy [Pearce]’s career as well. But he also does Australian stuff all the time, and I feel weird doing English things. I feel like I’m really naked.”

Robert Pattinson Interview With LA Times and Great Quotes About Him From The Rover Cast & Crew

Robert Pattinson Interview With LA Times and Great Quotes About Him From The Rover Cast & Crew | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

... working on an indie requires a certain adjustment for a star such as Pattinson. When his agent first called with news of a conversation with Michod, Pattinson believed he had been offered the part. "’No, no,’ he said,” Pattinson recalled, quoting his agent, “‘it's just an audition.’ I had to stop celebrating."

The actor wound up going for an audition at Michod's house in which he became so hesitant to do a scene he hadn't prepared that he nearly walked out. "Rob said he hadn't prepared it but I think he just didn't want to do it," Michod said. "But we started working on the scene in the audition, and then it became play, he swam to it like a little fish."

Pattinson said that despite having to audition, he was grateful for the shot at the "Rover" role. “I was quite conscious that I was not part of a group that gets roles like this,” he said. “In my experience, a part like this goes to the skinny little weirdo.”  He added, “The one for us and one for them doesn’t exist anymore. There’s no guarantee of getting a cool indie after a big studio movie.”

Pearce said he didn’t give Pattinson acting or career advice but did find himself wondering about aspects of the actor's fame. “There was this curiosity about how Rob does his job with all the attention he’s gotten, just how he copes with it.”

...

Pattinson said he believes that some of the real value of doing an indie like this is on the marketing side, because it will help new audiences discover the movie.

“That would be amazing," he said, when asked if some of his teenage-girl devotees might now see a violent Western they never would otherwise come out to. Then he gave the nervous laugh again. “I don't know. I might end up losing a bunch of fans.”

Brisbane Times: The Rover puts Robert Pattinson on road to redemption

Brisbane Times: The Rover puts Robert Pattinson on road to redemption | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

The vampire is dead. Or at least by now he should be. With The Rover, Robert Pattinson has finally shaken off the Twilight tag that threatened to define him forever as an actor.

He’s aware that he’s getting favourable reviews for The Rover. He’s happy about this, of course, he says, ‘‘because I really love the movie’’. But when it comes to his performance, he admits, ‘‘I always think of it as a work in progress, and it just gets frustrating, thinking about things you could fix.’’

At the same time, when he read the script, it was one of those rare occasions when he connected immediately with a role.‘‘Maybe because it was so loose - you could really do almost anything with the character. You could project anything onto it. But I don’t know, I could hear the voice in my head almost immediately, I could feel a walk ... and that’s only happened to me three or four times since I’ve started acting.’’

David Michôd Mentions Rob in Interview With Cinema Australia

David Michôd Mentions Rob in Interview With Cinema Australia | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Q: How exciting was it for you to get Robert on board. There’s a huge commercial element and a built in audience that comes with Robert, so was that a factor in your excitement?

A: It remains to be seen because I never know what the commercial results of having an actor in your movie might be but there is certainly a thrill to be had in knowing that you’ll be working with someone who is as profoundly famous as Robert is and giving them an opportunity to demonstrate a skill set that people possibly don’t even know he has. I think Robert is extraordinary in this movie. I’ve obviously seen it a thousand times and I just love losing myself in his performance and I love watching him and Guy bounce off each other. Two wildly different characters having to figure each other out performed by wonderful actors. This is what the thrill of directing is all about.
Q: Did they get along off screen?
A: Totally. They’re both really beautiful human beings and given the nature of the shoot and that we were out in the middle of nowhere in really challenging conditions meant that after a days work was done we really bonded in a warm and special way.

Robert Pattinson at the premiere of The Rover in Sydney

Desert-noir thriller The Rover premiered in Sydney today with hundreds swarming the State Theatre to get a glimpse of Hollywood hearthrob Robert Pattinson, pictured here with Aussies Guy Pearce and David Michod.

Such was the hysteria, even The Rover’s director, Sydneysider David Michod, admitted he sympathised for his leading man who — even three years after the last Twilight film wrapped — cannot shake the adulation.

“All the time ... I feel for him all the time,” Michod said on last night’s red carpet. “It’s kind of nuts the bubble that he has to live inside. There are kind of very few people in the world who can inspire that sort of bizarre ‘Beatlemania’ and it was one of the extraordinary experiences of working with him out in the desert. It was so freeing for him. To be able to sit out in the street with him at the end of the day and drink a beer. It was quite amazing.”

Robert Pattinson Interview with News Australia (VIDEO+TEXT)

Robert Pattinson Interview with News Australia (VIDEO+TEXT) | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

DON’T expect to see a newly-buff Robert Pattinson in a superhero movie any time soon.

“It’s not really about the physicality,’’ said the former Twilight heart-throb today ahead of the red carpet premiere of dystopian Outback thriller The Rover at the Sydney Film Festival .

“Those leading guy roles are all extremely confident characters and I am just not that confident. I would feel weird faking that confidence.

“The action guy who does the little quip at the end of killing somebody? I would sound like a psycho.” ....

Reviews for Pattinson’s performance in The Rover, in which he plays a slow-witted Southern drifter to Pearce’s embittered avenger, have been universally positive – Variety went so far as to describe it as “career-redefining.”

The actor said the accolades generated by last month’s prestigious midnight screening at the Cannes Film Festival felt like a validation “for about five seconds.”

But the next job was almost more important.

“It’s almost like creating a brand,’’ he said. “You have to get enough good reviews so that people go in expecting a good movie – then half your job is done. “
