With Queen of the Desert having it's American Premiere at the AFI Fest this week The Daily Beast spoke to Werner Herzog where he spoke a bit about the movie and mentioned working with Robert Pattinson. Not surprisingly he had very complimentary things to say about Rob:
"He cast Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence before fully grasping how huge the Twilight franchise was.
“I only realized that wherever I showed up in Morocco there were screeching teenies,” he smiled. “Pattinson is a very, very smart, very well-educated and intelligent young man. When he says things in the film, they’re always credible. You see you don’t just have a pretty face. It was a pleasure to have him around. A good comrade, as well.”"
