NEW PRINT INTERVIEW: Robert Pattinson Talks About Doing Music for 'Damsel' & MORE WIth Metro UK

NEW PRINT INTERVIEW: Robert Pattinson Talks About Doing Music for 'Damsel' & MORE WIth Metro UK

The MetroUK posted this great new print interview with Rob where he talks about his experience in the jungle on The Lost City Of Z, his fashion choices for the Berlin Film Festival Red Carpet, doing music for Damsel, yes you heard me right and lots more.

Word of advice, if you're about to eat wait until afterwards to read this interview. I'll say one word, maggots.

ALOOF, cool, brooding — that’s what I expect from R-Patz. The reluctant star, who broke through in Twilight, has only agreed to do one print interview (ie, us!) and I’m braced for something akin to teeth-pulling. Instead…

‘Hello, hello!’ Pattinson bounds towards me like a gangly, 6ft Labrador. ‘Where would you prefer to sit? Water?’ He wrestles with the bottle cap while we do a ‘no, you’, ‘no, you’ politeness dance over who gets the comfy sofa.

‘I feel this kind of ignition happens in press scenarios,’ he says. ‘I become suddenly a bit excited and want to please everybody and act like a bit of a moron.’

Bless him.

Aside from those extraordinary, almost reptilian, hooded eyes, which lend an otherworldly handsomeness, in person there’s nothing of Edward Cullen, Twilight’s chilly vampire heartthrob, about the 30-year-old actor and model.

Dior Homme’s latest ambassador is even less recognisable in The Lost City Of Z, in which he wore a ginormous bushy beard and specs to play Henry Costin, one of the first Brit explorers of the Amazon.

‘The real Henry Costin had a very dramatic Victorian moustache,’ he says. ‘I thought, with my face that might look too Noël Coward, so I had to do a full-on beard for eight months. It was pretty awful — I ended up getting these disgusting ingrown hairs xall over my face. Gah! I shouldn’t get into that!’

Even worse, a jungle infection required Costin’s beard to crawl with maggots. Real ones. ‘It was so gross — I was eating them and stuff,’ he says. ‘I think they had to cut that scene to get the rating down.’

A good sport, who attended the same London prep school as Jack Whitehall, Tom Hardy and Louis Theroux, Pattinson says he wasn’t squeamish at shooting in the jungle despite being ‘covered’ in sand fleas and pouring with sweat thanks to the authentic woollen suits.

‘There were caimans [like crocodiles] in the river and me and Charlie [Hunnam, his co-star] were swimming around them,’ he says. ‘One of the crew got bitten in the face by an arbor viper. The props master went straight in, sucked the venom and spat it out — he had no idea what he was doing, he’d just finished on EastEnders, but the guy was fine. There were so many dangerous creatures everywhere in the jungle, you don’t worry. But when I’d come back to my hotel, I’d see one ant in my room and I’d freak out!’

Hunnam takes the lead in Lost City Of Z, with Pattinson his loyal aide-de-camp. Pattinson was also wingman in Life, with Dane DeHaan taking the limelight as James Dean.

‘You can play things more eccentrically if you are on the sideline,’ he explains. ‘You don’t have the responsibility to drive the central story forward, so you can do more flourishes and experiment.’

As all is going swimmingly, I edge nearer the personal. Pattinson was never a gusher about his private life, even before his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart cheated on him, sparking global headlines. He’s dated singer FKA Twigs since 2014 and they are engaged. So is he more romantic than cynic?

‘Um, kind of… I like the idea that there are special things in the world. So I guess I am romantic in that way,’ he offers.

Are his unusual fashion choices (a ‘gorilla’ overcoat and reverse-zipped crop top) a diversionary tactic to distract press from his private life?

‘That would be a cunning parlay!’ he boggles, as I absorb his use of the word ‘parlay’. ‘That red carpet in Berlin [where he rocked the overcoat] was one of the more terrifying experiences I have had recently, just because I wanted to wear something different. When you live any sort of public life, it is impossible to know which way is right to do anything. The only thing I want to do is get the jobs I really want. And not to go crazy.’

The Lost City Of Z is out March 24

Rob on... 

...starving himself for The Lost City Of Z

‘Charlie [Hunnam] was extremely militant so I couldn’t slip off my starvation diet – we were in the same hotel and he stayed in character all the time.

There was this chocolate brownie on the menu and I kept thinking: “When I finish I will eat that and it will be amazing.” I did, and it was one of the most horrible experiences because my body rejected it.’ 

...his loyal Twihard following

‘It is nice knowing there are people who are watching my progression and that they found you in one thing and stay with you. It’s sweet because my jobs are going to get weirder. This year I have tried to accelerate that road to weirdness.’ .

..his music

‘I don’t play that much any more, though I am doing music for a movie I’m in with the Zellner brothers called Damsel. I used to differentiate between music and acting but the more I don’t play music, the more I push that area of my brain into acting.I improvise like I would when I play music.’

Thanks Sky

ROBsessed's 30 Days for Rob's 30 Years: Robert Pattinson's Awesome Role as Art

Of course I'd seen Harry Potter, but now I'd seen the trailer for Twilight... and more of a glimpse of Robert Pattinson. Two months until Twilight premiered, I couldn't wait that long! But fear not, How To Be was about to play at the Austin Film Festival - it was a done deal, I was going.

To this day I'd say it's still my favourite Rob movie. Loved it. Plus it lead me to my Rob encounter, so I do have a soft spot for Art. How To Be and Art easily make it onto my list of awesome for Rob.

Robert Pattinson Played Guitar On 'Birds' By Death Grips

Robert Pattinson Played Guitar On 'Birds' By Death Grips

UPDATE: In case there was any doubt about this story 

From Pitchfork:
It's been confirmed that this is true. Zach Hill recorded Pattinson's guitar with his iPhone and the band sampled the recording on the track.

You can say that again Rob!
So it turns out Rob played guitar on 'Birds' By Death Grips and twitter is a buzz with the news.

 photo phe1dYe-3.jpg

Well we knew he was friends with them (videos from that night out HERE).

And it was rumoured back in October last year that Rob was working on a short film with Death Grips (we posted about it HERE ) but that rumour was squashed. And strangely enough Birds was mentioned.

He loves throwing us these little surprises like this.

The Robert Pattinson Music Club: Rob's musical picks find a home on the blog

The Robert Pattinson Music Club: Rob's musical picks find a home on the blog

Rob loves music. We love Rob. Let's love what Rob listens to.


We have a Robert Pattinson Book Club that we maintain, adding books to it that Rob mentions in public and we even have a scroll on the sidebar that you can purchase these books. During the time of that post and pretty much ongoing, readers have requested a list of Rob's musical picks.

I've avoided it because you just KNOW Rob has tens of thousands of songs on his iPod(s). Maybe hundreds of thousands?? o.O We loved Rob's iTunes Celebrity Playlist from 2008 and just like his book reads, Rob's shared other artists and albums through the years that he enjoys.

I need your help. I've jumpstarted us but what do you remember? Start talking in the comments and I'll try and find the source. That's the main criteria - Rob needs to have mentioned it or the link to him is clear and direct. You can link in the comments too because I'll see them. I've also included a category for concerts Rob has attended that we know of.
