 David Cronenberg Talks About Casting Robert Pattinson + An Oscar-Qualifying Run For 'Maps To The Stars'

You've got to love David and his love for Rob. He spoke to The Hollywood Reporter at NYFF over the weekend and spoke about how he had no problem looking past Rob's Twilight past when casting him and Thank God for us he did.

"David Cronenberg's Hollywood-centered family melodrama Maps to the Stars marks the veteran director's second straight film with Twilight alum Robert Pattinson after 2012's Cosmopolis.

Although many still see Pattinson as vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen, Cronenberg told The Hollywood Reporter he can easily look past that.

"I have no problem ignoring that," the director said. "Of course I watched the first Twilight movie just to see what he was like and get a feel for his screen presence and so on and so on. … By the time you're on the set, it's just the two of you making movies. You forget your own movies too."

Speaking to THR ahead of Saturday night's New York Film Festival screening of Maps, Cronenberg explained that he wanted to work with Pattinson (who wasn't in attendance at the New York event) on this movie not only because the director thinks of him as "a wonderful actor" and they "had a good time on Cosmopolis," but also because it provided the opportunity for Pattinson to participate in the sort of ensemble film he'd told Cronenberg he wanted to do.

"He told me that he was scared about Cosmopolis because he had not really wanted to do a movie where he was the lead and had the whole movie on his shoulders," the director explained. "And of course in that movie he's in almost every scene. He said, 'One day I'd love to do an ensemble piece where there are a lot of good actors and [he's] just one of them.' "

When Cronenberg was putting together Maps, he thought of his Cosmopolis star."

ALSO some fantastic news about Maps To The Stars. While chatting to Vulture David revealed that Maps would be getting an Oscar-qualifying run.

" “They’re going to do a qualifying run — I think it’s in New York and L.A. — so that it will legitimately qualify for the Golden Globes and the Oscars,” said Cronenberg, who admitted, “There was a lot of discussion. You know, they really felt that they could do a better job releasing the film in 2015, in January or February. And then, of course, the discussion was, ‘Yeah, but wouldn’t it be great if Julianne got an Oscar nomination, since she won Best Actress at Cannes?’”

A strong recent showing at the Toronto Film Festival convinced Focus World to put the film out this year, though the distributor hasn’t committed to funding a costly Oscar campaign. “You know, I think the movie will find its way regardless,” said Maps screenwriter Bruce Wagner. “It already has.” "

"Rob Likes Hearing About The Behind The Scenes Detail & All The Craziness Of X-Factor" ~ Lizzy Pattinson

"Rob Likes Hearing About The Behind The Scenes Detail & All The Craziness Of X-Factor" ~ Lizzy Pattinson

For those of you following Lizzy Pattinson's X-Factor journey you'll know that she's through to the judges houses round of the show. She made it through boot camp over the weekend singing Chris Issac's "Wicked Game.
As one of Simon's top 6 we'll see her performing at his house in LA on next weeks show.
The judges houses round has actually been recorded already  (I wonder if she got to see her little brother while she was in town?). If she gets through this round it's onto the live shows for her.

She spoke a little about Rob and how he's so excited for her and loves hearing what's goes on behind the scenes.

Here's her performance from the other night for those that didn't see it.

And here she is defending her seat (They didn't show this on the main show)

On her brother’s support of her entering the show
“He is really excited about it all and he likes hearing about the behind the scenes detail, all the craziness of it all. I sent him a link of the song I am performing for Judges’ Houses and he said ‘that sounds really cool’. It was quite an obscure choice and he thought it was a really good song.

On whether she is prepared for the level of fame her brother enjoys?:
“I have seen the great side of things through my brother but also the other stuff that comes with it. There are so few people who have that level of fame, I know my life wouldn’t be the same as his. I don’t think any girls are going to be throwing their knickers at me.

Rob's mentioned Wu-Tang Clan in interviews before, seen them at Coachella 2013 and that's landed them in our Robert Pattinson Music Club. There's also this great press junket video from Eclipse promo in 2010 when Rob fanboy'd about the group.

We hope he had fun! All signs point to a definite YES.

The Province interviewed Rob at the Toronto Film Festival. He spoke about working with David, why he feels so comfortable on his sets and lots more.
It's a great read and I also think the author maybe a wee bit Robsessed. Who can blame her, right?

TORONTO – For a man who emerged as the fully formed and fully fanged vampire heartthrob in the Twilight saga, Robert Pattinson almost seems too fully dimensional, too human, too real to be locker pin-up material. But he’s managing.

The British actor who played Edward opposite Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan says he’s learned to adapt to a complete lack of control when it comes to public perception, which is one reason why he loves working with David Cronenberg so much.

Pattinson played the lead in Cronenberg’s 2012 outing, a limo-bound narrative about greed, corruption and self-contained narcissism called Cosmopolis. And he returns to Cronenberg’s bizarre landscapes in Maps to the Stars, a truly odd Oedipal yarn woven through a Hollywood loom.

Pattinson plays a limo driver to various celebrities in this new effort that also stars Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore and John Cusack, and while he says his character, Jerome, was relatively blank on the page, he knew he could trust Cronenberg to let him grope for a while, and get a good feel for what was needed.

“David is very funny,” Pattinson says. “I just like him as a person, and it helps that I really like his work. I like the way he runs his sets: They are so comfortable and I feel more confident on them.”

Pattinson says Cronenberg never panics when faced with the unknown. He allows the story and the characters to evolve organically.

“On Cosmopolis, I was terrified because it was such a wordy script and I hadn’t done any rehearsals, and I hadn’t had any talks with him about the character until the Sunday before the Monday we started shooting. And I tell you I nearly had a nervous breakdown because I assumed he thought I knew exactly what I was going to do and just pull it out…. “ Pattinson laughs, with a sweet little twinkle.

UPDATE 3: We edited the video. Took out the annoying audio and lightened it. See the original under the cut.


From E Online:
"Robert Pattinson and new girlfriend FKA Twigs sure aren't shy about putting their love on display!

The hot couple stepped out together on Thursday for a night out with friends in Hollywood, where the duo appeared relaxed and happy as they walked side by side before heading into a club.

R.Pattz and his ladylove both rocked casual hipster ensembles, with Twigs adding a bit of bohemian flair to her low-key look. The former Twilight hunk wore skinny jeans, a black jacket and a beanie hat while sporting his signature unkempt scruff. Meanwhile, the British beauty looked lovely in a black and white patterned maxi skirt with a slit on the side which she teamed with a black crop top.

The two always stayed close by and appeared relaxed in each other's company, clearly enjoying a night on the town with their pals as their relationship continues to blossom."
And this lucky lady ran into Rob in No Vacancy and got to chat with him!

NEW Interview: Robert Pattinson Talks LA, 'Maps To The Stars', Working With Auteur Directors & More In Today's UK Independent

NEW Interview: Robert Pattinson Talks LA, 'Maps To The Stars', Working With Auteur Directors & More In Today's UK Independent

Rob spoke the the UK's Independent newspaper while at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month. The interview is in today's paper and you can read the transcript of it below.

image host image host image host

Maps To The Stars is also their Film of The Week

image host
Maps To The Stars is the title of the new David Cronenberg film starring Robert Pattinson. It refers to the Hollywood cartography that informs tourists of where to find the homes of their fabourite actors.

Anyone buying one of these plans will be disappointed if they are looking for the home of Britain's most famous vampire. Last year the actor sold his mansion in Griffith Park, near the Hollywood sign in central Los Angeles, saying he was too young to be tied to such a lavish property and instead wanted to lay low and live life to his needs rather than his means.

"The house was amazing," he says of the abode he sold for $6.37m (£3.9m). "I wasn't really thinking when I got it. I had been living in and out of hotels, and when you have money for he first time." When he says money, he means a mind-boggling amount. He reportedly received $20m for the final part of Twilight, the vampire saga that made him a global name, and made his private life public fodder. Pattinson says selling the house is part of a general disassociation with Hollywood. "If you are the kind of person who needs to to be pushed into doing something, Hollywood is not the right place to be, so I think I might be done with Los Angeles."

We meet on the day on the Toronto Film Festival of Maps To The Stars and there is a yearning for Barnes, West London, where he grew up. His Dad imported vintage cars from America, and his mother worked for a modelling agency, a profession Pattinson entered just before he hit his teens. "I think I need to spend more time in London, or just move around a bit more. I've been in LA for six or seven years and it's weird. The more you stay, especially as an actor , the more you think you'll be missing out on something by leaving, but you are not really. It's a fun city, but you are permanently on holiday. I feel like I've been on holiday since I was 22."

It seems the 28 year old has enough of the focus being on his romantic life rather than his career. His relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart dominated headlines before a very public split, and now there's endless speculation that he's going out with every girl who just happens to be in the same room. The fascination with his love life must be frustrating because, since Twilight ended, not many column inches have been expanded on the impressive resume hes been building.

In addition to twice working with Croneneberg, he gave one of his best performances as a left-for-dead armed robber in David Michod's Australian outback thriller The Rover and he's just finished playing TE Lawrence for Werner Herzog and photographer Dennis Stock for Anton Corbijn. On the horizon is an adaptation of The Lost City Of Z, to be directed by James Gray.

The impressive list has come about because Pattinson has been seeking out auteurs: "In the past two years, I've done stuff just for the director and not really thought much about the script," he says. "Now I'm swinging it back a little, trying to get a medium between the two."

He's thankful to Cronenberg for taking a chance on him, especially when people wondered if all he had to offer was a blank stare. "Working with Cronenberg just opened stuff up. People approached you in a different way. Now I"ve done other things and it kind of works on a bit of a roll, working with auteur-y guys."

There is an odd link between Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars, in that in Cosmopolis he played a financial hotshot who went around New York in his limo for pretty much the whole movie, whereas in Maps he plays a limo driver who wants to be a screenwriter. Pattinson quips, “It’s a bit weird. It’s like Cosmopolis was the audition for this: ‘Well he fits into a limo, why look for someone else?’”

Maps To The Stars is about the oddballs that populate Hollywood. Pattinson has an affair with a PA (Mia Wasikowska) and then memorably has sex in a car with her boss, Havana - Julianne Moore won the best actress gong at Cannes for her portrayal of an actress whose best days are behind her. It's a Hollywood that Pattinson knows all too well; "I've met characters that are pretty similar. Everyone's saying the films biting, but I think it's sympathetic to a host of characters. Women like Havana: in reality people would despise her, they don't have friends for a reason, but I don't think anyone comes out of the movie hating her and that's testament to Julianne. It's a bunch of weirdos who spend time self-obsessing and talking about it afterwards."

The actor says he's not exactly in a position to talk; " I self-obsess a lot. When I'm doing interviews I'm always waiting for some stupid remark to come out." When he first entered the room, his opening gambit was, "I'm so bad at doing press junkets," said with a glint in his eye that gave the impression he thinks much of it is a charade.

"I used to be so dumb in interviews; try to make jokes all the time, and everyone is thinking, 'this guy is a moron, he's just been saying dumb stuff for years and years'."

Herzog is a director he's long admired and he jumped at the chance to play  TE Lawrence in his Gertrrude Bell biography Queen Of The Desert, starring Nicole Kidman as the British archaeologist who helped draw the Iraq/Jordan border at the turn of the 19th century. "It's sort of close to the real guy, it's certainly not Lawrence of Arabia-like," he says. "Its a small part as well," which suits his just fine: "It's quite nice doing small parts. The film isn't totally reliant on what I do, so I get to work with who I want and it's not my fault if it doesn't make any money."

ROBsessed Giveaway: Second chance to have a SWEET FILTHY BOY and a DIRTY ROWDY THING for our Fiction Friday!

ROBsessed Giveaway: Second chance to have a SWEET FILTHY BOY and a DIRTY ROWDY THING for our Fiction Friday!

It's time for week 2 of our double hitter - SWEET FILTHY BOY and DIRTY ROWDY THING!

I got a chance to finish DIRTY ROWDY THING last weekend and my oh my. I think the title fits juuuuuust right. Finn is definitely a dirty, rowdy thing and matches up perfectly with the sassy Harlow. I had fun reading the story and catching up with the characters we first met in SWEET FILTHY BOY. Naturally, Rob plays all leading men that I read. What.

But I did get a chance to talk to Christina Lauren about who they could fan cast as Finn and Harlow and I LOVE IT.
Q: Fan casting is fun. Who have you fan casted for Harlow and Finn? Or who have you seen others suggest? 
Christina Lauren: Ooh this is a good one but our answer is going to be a cop out—but wait! With good reason! See, it’s really hard to find an actress who fits Harlow. Harlow is half Spanish, half Irish-European mutt, so she has darker hair and skin but light brown eyes. In our mind her face is very Emma-Stone, but she’s more golden, darker-eyed. Finn is similarly tricky for us to cast. But since it’s a Rob site, we can totally confide here that if Rob put on about 30 pounds of muscle, he could rock the role.
Emma is already awesome to me and I totally dig her as Harlow! And Rob, always Rob for any and everything.

 photo ScreenShot2014-09-25at112139PM.png

I know I picked a picture of Emma covering half her face but there's something about her look that is so Harlow. Playful, flirty and pretty. I tried to darken her eyes and golden her complexion to get in sync with Christina Lauren's description. And the Rob selection. Come on. This look wins all day every day and I definitely see dirty, rowdy Finn all over him.

Contest is the same as last week so let's do this! Synopsis and guidelines...

 photo 81g2wF-U8rL.jpg DIRTY ROWDY THING synopsis:
Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other...which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman—or just what he needs. 
 photo 81iPj7qv-L.jpg
One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. 
But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play. 
When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

Definition Of Erotic: Robert Pattinson Advertising Dior

Definition Of Erotic: Robert Pattinson Advertising Dior 

Actress Jane Alexander was interviewed by Italy's Vanity Fair and was asked about eroticism and what she considered erotic.

Any guess what her answer might have been??? Here's a hint.......

 photo Hotness.gif

(Translated using Google Translate)
"Depends on your taste . In general , however, I find that women are able to be much more erotic than men. Aside from Robert Pattinson in advertising Dior, yes he is really erotic."
You won't hear any of us here disagreeing with that Jane. But just because this is Robsessed and we never tire of looking at HHH here's a little peek at the Erotic Rob at work.


Oh Lordy.....

PromoRob is relaxing at the moment so how great is it that a hidden gem of an interview popped up!

Thanks to our reader, Cali, this interview from CannesRob emerged and after a quick check on the blog, we hadn't posted it!

 photo crying.gif

Don't cry, dry your eyes. We're posting it now and it's classic Rob which means it's awesome. It's all perfect timing to read something new for The Rover, Maps to the Stars and more since:
  1. The Rover is out on US Bluray/DVD this Tuesday 
  2. Maps To The Stars in out in UK theaters this Friday
  3. Idol's Eye starts filming in October
  4. We love Rob and soak up all his interviews whenever they hit us

 photo RobCannes.jpgYahoo Singapore: It’s late afternoon in Cannes, and heartthrob, Robert Pattinson, 28, appears to be having a good time at the world’s most glamorous film festival promoting the Rover, starring alongside Guy Pearce, 46. He will also star opposite Julianne Moore, 53, in Maps to the Stars, both slated for release this summer.

His hair is short, he has a little facial stubble and he’s wearing a turquoise jacket, black shirt and dark jeans and sneakers.

Pattinson is of course best known for his role as Edward, a vampire who falls in love with a human, Bella, played by on again off again girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, 24, in The Twilight Saga.

Since then, Pattinson has taken on more serious roles such as Remember Me (2010) and Water for Elephants (2011) in which he starred alongside Reese Witherspoon.

Famous for his good looks, Pattinson is often seen topping the ‘hottest’ lists in many publications such as People (2008 and 2009) and Glamour UK, yet he remains humble. He is also the face of Dior Homme, which he took on after Jude Law.


Q: Are you a fan of the Mad Max films?

PATTINSON: I have actually never seen them. I have been asked so many times this morning and I have never seen it. (laughter) I guess I have got to see it now.

Q: This whole genre, is it familiar to you?

PATTINSON: Yeah, but I think this one is kind of different. I mean, it’s not like everyone has gone crazy, and they are cannibals. There feels something more real about it, and also I think the world where the movie is set, it’s not that the entire world is like that, they are just in the middle of nowhere. The country has just become very unstable and anything could collapse at any second. It’s sort of like the new society is trying to be born again.

Q: Is the collapse of society a familiar fear to you that you can relate to?

PATTINSON: Not really. I think the world is quite resilient, but I don’t know I think it would be a bit of fun. But I am a bit of a nihilist. (laughter)

Q: Was it fun on the set with Guy Pearce? Was he intimidating?

PATTINSON: No, and he’s also really strong as well. So when you are being thrown around, it actually hurts quite a lot. (laughter) And he was really in it the whole time because he’s really not like that.

Q: So he’s a good actor like you. Is this something that’s really important to you when you work?

PATTINSON: Yeah, one hundred percent. I mean, I think, I always hear some actors saying they didn’t read reviews or care about it, and I just think they are making it up. (laughs) Everybody cares about it; whether people think it’s good.

Q: What was the most difficult thing for you to create this character, to make him special in a way?

PATTINSON: I mean a lot of it was just there in the script at the beginning and I just really connected to it. I mean the most difficult thing was getting the job. But I think once I was doing it, it was quite fun. It was an exciting part to play and David Michôd kind of let me sort of run with any idea as well.

Q: And the accent thing, was that your idea?

PATTINSON: He was supposed to be from the South, but literally only said he was from somewhere in the South, so I don’t know, that was the kind of voice I heard in my head when I was reading the script.

Q: And you said it was more difficult to get the job.

PATTINSON: I mean, I just hate auditioning and I am really, really bad at it. I get so nervous and mess it up for myself and so I have basically tried to avoid doing auditions at all costs. I read the script and I was like, I really, really, really have got to get this part. It’s weird though, preparing for a part that you are already cast and just actually doing it for real and just kind of hoping that your anxiety doesn’t get the better of you in the room.

Q: And you got a phone call? What happened?

PATTINSON: I got a second audition afterwards and then they told me at the end of it, and it was a kind of amazing feeling.

Q: And so was it the first time you went to Australia shooting?

PATTINSON: I have been to Sydney just a couple of times to work, but yeah, in that area definitely.

Q: Are you done with the blockbuster thing or are you possibly returning to that at some point in your career?

PATTINSON: Yeah, it’s waiting for the right director. Nothing has come up and I mean, that’s not saying I don’t want to do it, but blockbusters, big movies just take a really long time to shoot as well. So I think you have to really, really, really want to do it. There’s a lot of pressure and you just don’t get that many interesting parts in big movies, especially for young guys. It’s just the same thing every time.

Q: Lots of comic book adaptations. Is there some character that you would say, yeah, I would do it?

PATTINSON: Yeah maybe, I was never really that into comic books when I was a kid and stuff so I don’t really have that connection. You also have to work out like tons, (laughter) in potentially a movie you might not like. It’s just a big hassle. (laughs)

Q: Maps to the Stars was excellent. So when you first read the script, what did you make of it?

PATTINSON: I thought it was hilarious and I liked some of the lines (laughter) I am excited about seeing it with an audience. But that’s Cronenberg; he’s quite into being subversive and quite combative and stuff. It’s kind of amazing that he’s still doing that, he’s 72.

Q: Have you seen people who actually almost act like that?

PATTINSON: A lot of the young kids in it, I have seen a lot of them. I think they are the most honest. And Havana, there are lots of actresses who kind of go a little bit crazy. But the kids, that’s like quite a mainstream thing, this kind of hatred. There’s a lot of negative energy, I don’t know why, it’s just really odd.

Q: You played music on Twilight – will you release a record one day?

PATTINSON: I want to make one, I just don’t really know about releasing one. (laughs) I don’t know, I can’t really deal with criticism very well and I have already got criticism coming from one angle (laughs) and I don’t feel the need to get it from somewhere else.

Q: What would it sound like? What music would you make?

PATTINSON: I don’t know yet. I mean I always used to record kind of singer-songwriters stuff and I don’t really want to do that. I was trying to figure out something else, but yeah, I don’t know yet. Trying to figure out my new sound. (Tink: Rob will be old and gray still telling us he's working on recording an album and he's trying to figure it out. OLD AND GRAY.)
