New interview with Robert Pattinson in Glamour (Italy)
A fantastic interview in the June 2011 issue. Rob needs to do more of these. Let the fans ask the questions I say!
Rob answers questions from fans posted on Glamour's Facebook.
In your new movie Water for elephants you work with animals. Do you have any pets?
Rob: "I recently got a puppy from a shelter in Louisiana, and called him Bear. He's an extraordinary dog, very smart and playful." (Tink: But he doesn't know any tricks like Queenie...)
Have you ever gone to the circus?
Rob: "I haven't, but it's weird that I can feel nostalgic for a place I've never been to."
When was the last time you cried?
Rob: "I continually cry, over everything. I'm crying right now! I'm drying my tears on the keyboard as I'm writing the answers" (Tink: so witty)
What book is on your bedside table at the moment?
Rob: "It's a book written by Steve Fisher, talking about the period when Las Vegas was under the control of the Mafia. I love the story of Las Vegas. (Tink: I think this is it...)
Who is your favorite hero?
Rob: "It's John Self from the novel Money by Martin Amis, because Amis manages to make fascinating even the most disgusting character on earth." (Tink: This just made be bitter about us not having Bel Ami yet)
How do you picture yourself at age 90?
Rob: "I want to be with my wife, sitting on a deckchair, sipping some tea, and reading books in a retirement home, in a beautiful and warm place." (Tink: I want him to have this. *sigh*)
Do you prefer a pair of jeans or a tuxedo?
Rob: "Pair of jeans, but I don't mind wearing a tux, not everyday of course." (Tink: He doesn't mind wearing a tux because he knows he looks damn fine in one.)
He really can't go wrong though...
Do you read your horoscope?
Rob: "No, and I really don't believe in that stuff."
The first verse of your favourite poem or song
Rob: "I grew up on the crime side, the New York Times side. Staying alive was no jive" - It's C.R.E.A.M. by the hardcore rap group Wu-Tang Clan from New York. (Tink: I love him hard. )
A must in your closet
Rob: "Underwear, which is only necessary thing after all. But I might add socks as well, you know just to make the answer more interesting." (Tink: Lies. We know Rob has an aversion to socks...)
What is one thing you think you're good and one thing you're bad at?
Rob: "I'm really good at the game "words with friends", while I'm not good at the ice hockey simulation NHL 11 for PlayStation 3."
Which is the song on your iPod you listen to the most?
Rob: "Beside You by Van Morrison. iTunes tells me I've listened to it 53 times, but I reset the play count twice at least, so I might have listened to it like a hundred times."
Where would you like to live?
Rob: "In LA and NY, or maybe in both cities! (Tink: LA is on the table! Woot!)
Are you a techno addict or a romantic guy?
Rob: "I'm a romantic guy." (Tink: So sweet. I never believe him when he says he's not romantic.)
Which is more difficult to shoot, a sex scene or a laugh?
Rob: "It's hard to say. Both kinds of scenes turned up really well."
You open your fridge and...
Rob: "And there's a Coca-Cola Zero, a pizza from yesterday, 2 day old Chinese food, and a Heineken." (Tink: Again, I love him hard.)
What is your ringtone?
Rob: "The standard one. Always." (Tink: zzzzzzzzzzz)
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Rob: "I brush my teeth, have a shower and go walk my dog."
What is your dream?
Rob: "Be able to act, write, direct, edit and produce my own movies." (Tink: If you build it, they will come.)
Are you on any social networks?
Rob: "If "words with friends" is considered a social network then yes. But I do not have any twitter or facebook accounts. There are too many people pretending to be me. If you want to know me, you have to go to the cinema."
What is your tip for an aspiring actor?
Rob: "Be faithful to yourself. That's enough."
Note on the pic: "The big doubt: is he dating Kristen? Yes, no, maybe. Robert changes the subject and doesn't answer this question"
