Robert Pattinson is an okay/good kisser ;)

Okay let your imagination run wild for a while....

Terra has an interview with Javier Beltran:

He's only 25, but Spanish actor Javier Beltran is already being compared to the likes of Antonio Banderas-and making out with 'Twilight' heartthrob Rob Pattinson. Now in his first major feature film, 'Little Ashes,' which opened on May 8, Beltran stars as legendary Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca. The actor talked to us about playing a Spanish legend, why he thinks people compare him to Banderas and what it was like sharing hot make-out sessions with Edward Cullen himself.

What is your film, 'Little Ashes,' about?

It is the story of two geniuses, Federico Garcia Lorca and Salvador Dali, who share their lives, their art and their way of seeing the world.

Why should people go see this movie?

Lorca and Dali­ were two historical geniuses, and to be able to know their relationship would be interesting for anyone. The important thing is that they make a connection because they were very different and they had different ways of thinking, and this is the main issue of the film.

What was most unique about Dali's relationship with Lorca?

What I find very interesting is that at a predetermined period in history, in Spain, two geniuses— Lorca and Dali-became friends and shared their lives. They influenced each other greatly. Lorca would write a play and Dali­ would produce the designs.

People can't stop talking about the sex scenes you share with your costar, 'Twilight' heartthrob Rob Pattinson. Were they difficult to do?

No. It was not uncomfortable. The hard part was to transmit the emotions of my character. That was the challenge. But the scenes came out really well. I am very proud of this film. I would love for people to see this movie, because it's a very good movie.

Millions of girls want to know what it feels like to make out with Rob Pattinson-tell us, is he a good kisser?

(Laughs). He's okay. He's good.

A lot of people are calling this a 'gay' film. Do you agree that it is?

It's not just that. But I like that people are talking about the movie. I also think that Rob's success with 'Twilight' will make people see this movie, and if they want to see Rob, that's great, because they'll see the film too. He does a splendid and wonderful job as Dali.

This film is entirely in English, but your first language is Spanish. Was it difficult to learn the English necessary to play the part?

I studied for two months with a coach. Each day, I spent many hours studying. I spoke English before the film, but I still had to study to make this movie.

Did you feel a lot of pressure-since you're a Spaniard-to portray Lorca accurately and make your fellow Spaniards proud?

Yes. It's a responsibility. He's not just any character; he's one of the best Spain has ever had, and he was an incredible man. But the same time, it was a pleasure. I'm very excited for the Spanish premiere of the film. I'm interested in the response of the Spanish audience, and I hope they'll enjoy it.

Why do you think some people are comparing you to Antonio Banderas?

Because I'm Spanish! It's very pleasant to me to be compared with him. He is a great actor with an astonishing career and he has done a lot for Spanish actors around the world. In Spain, he made very good films!

Haha, I like the qualifier in what he says about Banderas, "In Spain he made very good films."

And I have to wait till July to watch it on dvd, I can't take it anymore!
Hopefully I'll get it on my birthday and that would make that long-dreaded day a lot brighter (turning effin' 30...) LOL

margot said...

Yes, Antonio Banderas made very good fims in Spain


No, I'm not going to put myself into a gutter again imagining what kisser Rob is .... it would definitely ruin my unstable mental balance

*excellant ... can't help it*

You are only as good as your partner....

Suz <----exceptional kisser

c'mon Rob...put me to the test

scarlett said...

Love the labels for this post "I'd like to test it for myself, thud" LOL.

From the evidence we have before us I think Rob would be more than an okay/good kisser... his lips are just so damn kissable *sigh* "thud" :D

I'll happily wait in line to test for myself too.

It's too early for me to use my imagination that way!

Nicky said...

Honestly, I do understand some of the respective critics' problems with the film, but I must say, his performance is NOT one of them, it was fabulous! My heart broke for him....and he is utterly gorgeous to boot.

Suz said...

Nicky... I agree 100%.

Rob did an exceptional job.

I had a very hard time writing my review, because I didn't LOVE the film...

To stay positive, I concentrated on the strong performances of Rob & Javier.

Rob, blew me away.. frankly.. especially Uni Dali...

Chicago girl now in LA said...

Javier Beltran is a real find! What an excellent job he did in "Little Ashes"...I think we'll be seeing more of him.

I highly rec. "Little Ashes." Again, be sure to read Roger Ebert's review either at or

Sophia Z.86 said...

I will, Chicago, thanks for the tip!

Javier is adorable, isn't he? I hope he starts an international career too. By the way, Banderas is hot! Loved him in "Of love and shadows" -- wonderful movie, and wonderful butt...
