Ooh La La: Robert Pattinson Interview in Premiere France Magazine
By Tracy Rosenfield
hollywoodnews.com: Robert Pattinson appears on the June 2010 cover of Premiere France with his usual hair-gripping pose . In an interview titled “The Vampire Strikes Back,” Pattinson talks candidly about “The Twilight Saga,” “Remember Me” and his current project, “Water for Elephants.”
Pattinson is asked about the major differences between “Twilight”/”New Moon” and “Eclipse.” He believes Slade took a much different approach to filming versus the way the previous directors, Catherine Hardwicke and Chris Weitz worked. “Eclipse” is much faster-paced and allows for Edward to express a variety of emotions, namely anger and jealousy. He also has the opportunity to interact with many more characters, whereas in “Twilight” and “New Moon,” the interaction was mostly between Edward and Bella.
Additionally, Pattinson felt as though he was walking into a war movie with “Eclipse.” Given the scale of the fight sequences, much of the cast was put through rigorous physical training to prepare for their roles – a stark contrast to table reading preparation for the other films.
Regarding “Remember Me”, it didn’t gross much in the U.S., but ultimately grossed $60MM worldwide and only cost $16MM to make. Pattinson said that he never set out to make a blockbuster and was simply drawn to the script and character. He also makes some commentary on the paparazzi craziness during the film, which threw the cast and crew off since none of them were a part of the “Twilight” films, though he did admit that the hysteria was at its worst during this film.
Pattinson goes on to talk about “Water for Elephants” and the “terrifying and exciting” experience of working with actors of the caliber of Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz, both Oscar winners.
Despite his global superstardom (as he was just awarded for at the MTV Movie Awards), Pattinson still feels as though he has more to accomplish. “The wave I’m surfing on right now helps a lot but I didn’t accomplish everything I wish for.”
Though the “Twilight” films occupy a major portion of Pattinson’s twenties (20 to 26 to be exact), he’s managed to keep different projects going in between and it’s likely he’s career will continue for a long, long time.
