R-Patzstrikes back!

The teen heartthrob proves there's more to life than 'Twilight' when he tells Sophie Harris
about his 'serious' indie romance, 'Remember Me'
The hum of nervous excitement buzzing around Robert Pattinson's
hotel suite this morning is such that you half-expect him to walk out with golden
skin and alarmingly sharp teeth. But in the flesh, the 'Twilight' star is warm,
earnest and posher than you might expect, with something of the teenage
schoolboy to him, even down to the frayed cuffs on his jacket. In our closely
monitored chat (20minutes! No questions about Kristin!) Pattinson
talks about his role as chain-smoking student loser Tyler Hawkins in the US
indie movie 'Remember Me', about creating 'mystique' as an actor and
about sucking blood off his co-star's lip.

You looked scared stiff when you were handing out a Bafta award last
month. Are you getting shyer?
'I think I am, yeah! The more interviews you do, the more stuff you say to
people. You suddenly get worried that people are more likely to judge you. If
no one knows anything about you, then you can say whatever you want -and
just contradict yourself later. But the more contradictions you make, the
scope gets narrower as to what you can say before people get pissed off.'

Where does 'Remember Me' fit into the 'Twilight' craziness?
'I'd read tons of scripts after the first "Twilight" movie and this was one of
maybe two that I liked. I didn't work for the whole year after "Twilight". What
did I do? Nothing! [Laughs] It was really nice. I was still so used to hanging
around most of the time when I was in England. And now that I've been
working a lot, I can't imagine going a month without fretting. So now, I'm
doing job-to-job-to-job. Which is a dangerous thing to do because you have
a film coming out every three months. It's over -saturation. You have to work a
bit on creating some kind of mystique.'

Mystique? Is that what you feel you need? Or what you feel people want?
'I see people who are in newspapers and
magazines all the time. If they're in every single week, I'm far less interested
in their movies. So, yeah, I am always a little bit wary.'
Your new film 'Remember Me' is set in the summer of 2001.

Did you have any reservations about fictionalising 9/11.?
'When I first read it, I didn't think it was contentious. I thought it flowed organically; it's anchored in reality. It hit hard for me so I wanted to portray the same emotions that I felt the first time I read it. I'm terrified of people thinking it's manipulative. I read the script and I felt this should be made.'

You get beaten up a lot in 'Remember Me'. Was it fun to act like a real person for a change?
'Yeah, it's always enjoyable smashing things up. I guess that's one of the funniest things about it- from the first fight, which is such a severe beating, there are all these wounds on his face, for two thirds of the movie [Laughs].'

And then your screen girlfriend [Emilie de Ravin] kisses you and she's got a split lip...
'There was a big moment, which is in the script, where there's a kind of kinkiness with the cut in her lip but that got cut from the movie- where I'm sucking a little bit of blood off it [Laughs].I think it was a little bit too weird.'

Is this your first sex scene?
'No. My first sex scene was in "Little Ashes" when I was about21, and it was
with a guy. And I'm supposed to have a kind of nervous breakdown in the middle of it as well. So that was a nice introduction to it!

Do you feel like you have something to prove, 'Twilight' having been so bankable?
'I think people are really harsh about anything that becomes successful. It's really weird. I was looking at this article about "Little Ashes". "He still hasn't proved his box office potential. 'Little Ashes' bombed." Could it have been the gay theme? Or, er, the fact that it was only released in 16 cinemas?'

There's a lot of fags, booze and sex in this movie. What about your younger fans?
'That's the least of my concerns. I think it's so ridiculous, people putting pressure on the arts. I think parents should be the ones who teach kids. The more you try to hide things like that, the
more exciting and appealing they are. [Grins] The abstinence movement is only a reaction to everybody being so obsessed with sex for the past 20years and I being so open to everyone.! It's crazy to think that young people, when their hormones are most raging, that they're - suddenly like, "oh, I don't want any of that.

You're currently filming 'Bel Ami' with Uma Thurman.
You play a real swine.
'I thought it was one of the funniest scripts I'd ever read. When they made the movie in the '50s with Angela Lansbury, they had to change the story. The novel is about this guy who
screws everybody over and seduces all these women and completely gets away with everything. And in the first film, they had to have him shot because they thought that audiences wouldn't be able to accept it. In this one it's the total opposite. This guy is a complete arsehole, so arrogant and stubborn and self-righteous about everything.
He remains an arsehole to the end and everyone congratulates him for it.'

'Remember Me' opens on Apr 2.

Kathy S said...

Sucking the blood from Allie's split lip? Hmm,maybe they thought it was too vampirish?? I would like to see that outtake-or was in just in the script but not filmed?

rpattzgirl survived Rob! said...

I can not wait for the DVD, his commentary and all (hopefully) the extras!!!

Kate said...

Transcript added ;-)

Marna said...

There's no way they could have Rob licking blood from somebody, can you imagine what the critics would say if there was anything that reminded them about Twilight in the movie? He would get slaughtered.

Cindygal said...

HeneciaD said...

i just checked the local theater to see if RM is still going to be playing this weekend and they added another time slot for the weekend showings, so i guess it's doing good here. i am really going to TRY to see it again this weekend with my husband (crossing fingers X).

Kate said...

Kate said...

Thanks Kate!
Great interview. I love RM Rob's performance was astounding (saw it 4 times)!!
However I found a lot of the teens in the audience didn't get the message of the movie and how well acted it was by the whole cast.
There were 4 that sat behind me sand I had to I had ask them to be quiet several times, they were busy critiquing Rob's kissing style! And then at the end I had to give them a mini history lesson about 9/11 since they were only 8 at the time.
Can't wait for Bel Ami the book was great and it should attract a different audience (I hope) considering the subject matter, it's very steamy, love to seem play a total bad ass. LOL

Marna said...

Also, licking somebody else's blood? Has no one heard of AIDS? Or any of the other diseases you get through fluid exchanges? In this day & age, you would have to be a complete idiot to do something like that.

Rob is becoming a more mature guy. Every interview he gives is a great pleasure not only for the people who read but for the reporters too. There are many artists that don`t have anything clever to talk but Robert is different. He reads a lot, he is so articulated, full of ideas, has a great sense of humour and he knows exactly what he wants to do for his career.
OMR, it is so different when a man is inteligent. Rob is the most inteligent and beautiful man in the whole solar system.

I love you Rob, my mature man!!!!

Cheeky Chops said...

OHHH I really liked this one. :)

jh said...

There's been a lot of ink spilled and energy wasted on the question of censorship and the arts and Rob has just articulated a shut-down response in a couple of sentences. I didn't think it was possible for me to love him even more but I do now.

ShariG said...

Well at least it sounds like he doesn't die in Bel Ami in spite of the fact that he plays an "arsehole". LOL Love that term.
