Robert Pattinson and James Dean - Video

I don't like the comparison to James Dean for several reasons but damn!
This video shows how much they look alike/pose alike.
Hope James Dean watches over Robert Pattinson & Rob has the career/life that James couldn't have...



Amazing video. I wonder how many hours it took to find all those pictures.

Thanks to ninapolitan for the tip :)

P.S.: There are 2 small problems with the video: the picture at 0:25 is a manip, the original is of Justin Timberlake & as of yet there are no Robert Pattinson stamps (0:27) :))

James Dean was a good-looking dude, I'll grant you, but-no matter how old anybody was or what era I lived in, I would always pick the guy on the right! :) for me there is no comparison.

cool vid, though, I bet it took a long time to sort through and match up all the photos!

I don't like the comparison to James Dean either but the pose alikeness/look alikeness is just freaky...

Jewels64 said...

HOLY SHIT!!!

I have to show this to my Mum! She loved James Dean and can't understand my Robsession. Wait until she sees this....

Kate said...

WOW some amount of work went into that ! Fantastic!

rpattzgirl said...

While I'll admit there are some similarities....I just don't think JD could act his way out of a paper bag. He was good in Giant, but that's about it...

I know Rob modeled his American accent after him in Twilight...but I really hope this it where it all ends...

No fast cars Rob...love you too much to lose you..

But, the vid is awesome and someone put a lot of love into it.

rpattzgirl said...

So when is Rob going to be Peoples Sexiest Man Alive?????

They might as well just give him the title and cover for the next 40 years...

ADM said...

Agreed rpg, they may as well just stamp it on his ass. No one else will come close.

Georgie said...

This is well done. Some of Rob's poses in photoshoots have obviously been modelled on James Dean, so the physical comparison is there - but we obviously want it to stop at that.

rpattzgirl said...

I just watched a couple of fan made Remember Me trailers...bawling like a baby now....

Wish to hell they'd release an official trailer, although it would be hard to beat the FP videos...

Dagny said...

Rob's look is much more exotic than JD's, and much more appealing IMO.

Mechevpao said...

Big applause for the person who made the video, it must have taken a lot of time to put all those pics together and the edition.

James Dean is a very big male icon, any guy would be flattered being compared to him; but somehow I wish people would stop trying to find in Rob, the next James Dean or Marlon Brando or Johnny Depp or who ever else and that it would be about Rob, by his work and style.

Xtyn and Nikki said...

My boy looks better but, yes, it's freaky how the similarities are strikingly alike.

Jessica said...

Wow!! :D I have a James Dean T-shirt. I baught it because it looked like Rob hahah ;) Although they are simillar, Rob is hottest, hands down!

Alexandra said...

Funny, the moment 4:44- 4:46 it´s James Franco not Dean, anyways... I´m specting the stamps!

heav85 said...

Another problem. at 4:46 its not james dean, its james franco as james dean. I heart James alot. I noticed in twilight how much rob reminded me of him, with his bofont hair.

Lynda_Bluecanoe said...

Oh yeah, the poses are amazing considering many of the ones done of Rob were candids from Papz with telephoto lenses and not posed. Rob is far better looking, but then again I'm a tad bias, that COULD have been my ex-son-in-law on the left..I kid you not, it's freakin' uncanny. Just looking at photos of James and seeing that idiot (Ross) drops him down a notch or two...Blah! (And I LOVE James Dean, it's just very hard to watch his movies these days)

femroc said...

James Dean had the same type of effect on women Rob has with is pretty boy angst and pouty look and self deprecation. Its not just the looks we are attracted to........it's the personality, bod and looks.

All those things combined and much more gives them such charisma, charm and just the right amount of "woe is me" and make us want to take care of them..............in whatever way possible!!

Tess said...

That was pretty amazing. So much work involved!

It's not that they look alike, but the mannerisms and the presence is eerily similar.

soccermom said...

Great video! I like the side by side comparisons and the music. My sister and I made one similar about 6 months ago.

solas said...

Brilliant video.
May the likeness end with physical (although Rob is far better looking, IMHO), and may Rob live to 120 years (I know-- even older than his great aunt who wants Vampire venom, G-d bless her) with good health, good heart, good deeds.

Ellie said...

Wow. This was incredible. The amount of hours that probably went into making is staggering.
Great video.
thanks, Goz!

ROB PATTINSON for Dummies said...

outstanding....

Izzy said...

Wow, that's pretty uncanny. There were a couple of pictures of JD that I would have mistaken for Rob at first glance.

Kathy said...

Not that there is anything wrong with being gay, but James Dean was gay. He was the hot one then (I know cause I'm old enough to remember him).
Great video though.

Krystle said...

Yeah, I don't really see the similarities much between the two...except they're both good looking and smoke. lol. Some of the poses were dead on though and it kinda freaked me out!

marina mia said...

Girls!

The outtakes are up on VF - Look for the Bruce Weber Portraits. they are even more breathtaking.

lelie said...

Rob looks so much better...; but yes, he has some James Dean-Attitude

nut said...

why the more i see JD in this vid, the more i think it was James Franco. i think i should put my glasses on.
but i don't like the comparison between JD and RP.. anyone can pose like JD, but RP got his own style

Kelly Louise. said...

*looks at James Dean poster on wall, then at Robert Pattinson poster on other wall*

Teehee.

M said...

As amazing as that visual was, I must say I am officially worried now! Here is why:

1. It's spooky how parallel these images are.
2. JD died in a car crash in a Porshe at the age of 24 at the height of his fame.
3. Rob is terrified of driving and only got his license because he needed it to film some parts of Twilight. He even joked about self-revoking once the movie was done because he is a bad driver.
4. I saw a video of Rob being chased by Papps out of a parking garage and the expression on his face was chill-inducing.
5. Rob drives a freaking Porshe and he is 23. Can we please, please get this guy a lincoln car or something so he never has to drive? It's not like he hasn't had any scary close encounters with cars! Love you Rob... please be safe.

Great video!! I loved James Dean. The one pic of James Dean in the car towards the end of the vid is actually James Franco when he portrayed JD in the TV movie. Otherwise great comparative pics!!!!
