Robert Pattinson Talks About Playing Someone Other Than Edward And His Accent

From Entertainmentwise At the "Remember Me" Press Conference

Earlier on in the month we told you how we got oh so close to the gorgeous Robert Pattinson at the premiere of his new film, Remember Me.

And now it's time to share with you what was said behind closed doors....(Kate: Oooooh)

Playing the role of Tyler Hawkins, a troubled teen is as far as you can get from Edward Cullen, the lovelorn vampire in the Twilight saga, so what made Rob decide to play Tyler?

“Tyler as a character...I mean, it seems like most movies which have young male protagonist as the lead they have to be like a virgin to begin with and have to learn everything during the movie...but Tyler seemed like, he starts off with a lot of baggage and a very full and developed character and ends up just being developed in a slightly different way rather than just becoming 'Oh I'm fine now, after this movie, after going through this movie I'm fine...and you just never see that in films very much, especially for young people.”

And with the film being set in New York, Rob had to banish his English accent and go all American on us, but due to the professional that he is, he didn't even have to try, it came naturally.

“Sometimes when you're lucky you just read a script and the voice just comes out right. I wasn't even concious of doing a New York accent either, I don't even know what borough or anything...I've just spent a bit of time in New York; you know, just try and pick up on how people speak.

“I don't know where my accent is now, I mean I wouldn't say it was specifically London accent any more.”

It doesn't matter what accent you have Rob, we just love hearing the sound of your voice... (Kate: You can say that again! I think the reporter is a fan LOL)

n the film, Rob's character has a friend called Aiden who becomes very important to him and Tyler's little sister sees him as a hero. So who does Rob see as his hero?

“My parents are great parents and they brought me up very well...I think that's about all the heroes I've had.”

What about Rob as a hero?

“As for people who think I'm a hero, I don't know, I think I'm always envious of that. I grew up around a lot of people who a lot of other people regarded as heroes, I think no one ever came to me for advice or come to for protection so I don't know I don't think I've ever been looked at as a hero.”

And if Rob just so happens to drop by for a cup of tea, we now know what biscuit he likes with his cuppa.

“I do like a hobnob..”

And offering Rob a dark chocolate digestive is a complete no no - “oh no that's just wrong” he said. (Kate: Right! I'm remembering that for when Rob comes around to my house for...em.... tea and hobnobs. ;-)Just running out to the shop to stock up on biscuits!)

So there you have it...all the inside gossip from the press conference of Remember Me.

I know he isn't meaning this kind of drama, but young Jacob does actually start out a 'virgin and has to learn everything during the movie'..er..just saying, Rob...lol

@Kate: Ha! Why do I think McVities next quarterly report will have an unusual and puzzling, to them, jump in sales? And all one particular sort of biscuit, too...

Kerri said...

@AP- I think all magazines have a major jump in sales if Rob graces the cover. LOL. I get a kick out of how the shows like Acess Hollywood rehash old interviews to make it look new.

@Kate- Yes, I have to agree. This interviewer does seem to be either a fan or just fell under his spell. It can happen quite instantaniously. His voice melts like butter!

@CL: well, for greater accuracy shouldn't that be...um.."hob Rob's nob?" (with a silent k) I couldn't resist either... ;)

xoRobxo said...

Tyler...troubled "teen" can't any of these reporters get the facts straight??

rpattzgirl said...

xoRobxo..

Seriously...he's 22, that's not a teen....

I love Tyler Hawkins so much, he is so sensitive, fragile, a good guy. I think Remember Me will have always a big meaning in Rob career: the big audience finally discovered Robert Pattinson and people no more gonna calling him, the vampire guy.

I love you Rob because you are so brave and smart too.

Marna said...

Oh Rob, no dark chocolate? You're breaking my heart :-(

WhyIstheRumAlwaysGone said...

Why oh why do they keep saying Tyler is a teen?

Mrs. Edward said...

Cuz 'they're' retarded and haven't actually seen the movie. They just jump on the coattails of someone who has, and make up their own review!

Seriously, Rob is a great actor and I can't wait to see him stretch his talent in all the wonderful roles he's choosing!

rpg: You're picking out favourite lines in his New York accent?
I've got to think on that one, and am not up to deciding if they are spoilers. You're so good.

Oh God Kate, I totally agree with you 100%.
