@emhig tweeted,

I sat next to Robert Pattinson at a comedy show tonight and we laughed at the same jokes. As far I’m concerned, that’s our first date.

@MarilynNJesus Some random dudes! And me of course :p

@noseyparker111 I was just joking, he was there with friends and I was there working.

@MarilynNJesus I was working so we didn’t interact but I did sit for a bit. Not as magical as you may imagine, haha.

@noseyparker111 haha unfortunately I had to be professional! Ah well.

@papeirhearts he seemed perfectly pleasant. We didn’t interact, but he was having a good time with his buds.

According to SJR Research,

This year, the greatest buzz appears to be Werner Herzog’s epic, Queen of the Desert. The film chronicles Gertrude Bell’s life; a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century.

Deciding to bone up on the history of the movie’s heroine – Gertrude Bell – I came across an interesting fact as I perused Georgina Howell’s dense tome, Gertrude Bell: Queen of the Desert, Shaper of Nations.

http://www.amazon.com/Gertrude-Bell-Desert-Shaper-Nations/dp/0374531358

Outlining the abridged ancestry of Gertrude Bell, she mentions that her grandmother’s name was Margaret Pattinson.

Looking back at the cast list, I noticed that the current Hollywood mega-star, Robert Pattinson was also starring in this film as the legendary figure T.E. Lawrence. Knowing that the Pattinson name is relatively localized in the Northern England counties along the Scottish border (Yorkshire, Northumberland, Durham, Cumbria, and Lancashire) and that Gertrude’s family as well as Robert Pattinson’s resided in these areas, my genealogist spidey-sense perked up wondering if there was any possible connection between the two family lines. While probably a very distant connection, it is entirely possible they may be related through a common ancestor.

And what an ancestor! I wouldn’t sneeze at being connected to such a family line. Gertrude’s grandmother Margaret Pattinson’s father was the illustrious Hugh Lee Pattinson. According to the Dictionary of National Biography, Hugh Lee Pattinson, “was an English industrial chemist. He was also an entrepreneur, sharing the risk of major industrial developments with famous ironmaster Isaac Lowthian Bell (He married Isaac’s daughter) and cable manufacturer Robert Stirling Newall. Although known in his time for the patent process for refining silver that bears his name, he is best remembered for his daguerreotype photographs taken in 1840.”

Regarding your next film “Life,” as a photographer yourself, have you developed a special relationship like Dean and Stock’s?

My affinity with the script was based on an early experience, when I was young. I photographed a Dutch musician who became in the end the most well-known rock musician we ever had. Herman Brood. But over the years, I developed relationships with Tom Waits, well over 35 years, U2 over 30 years, and Depeche Mode. This is rare in the music world but for some reason, people can’t get rid of me [laughs]. I’m like a bad penny.

They’re very different professions, photography and film, but in people’s mind they seem to be quite close to each other. I find film a very different discipline and a very different way of telling a story.

Like some of his recent films, it’s a very different movie for Pattinson.

The screentime is easily divided between Dane DeHaan and Rob, and they’re very different actors. Rob, I think he’s working to be seen as a proper actor and not as a movie star. He takes a lot of challenging roles, and tries to work with directors that are a bit away from the mainstream. The fact that he maybe wants to prove himself as an actor was very good for the role of Dennis Stock, who wants to prove himself as being a great photographer. Also, for Rob to be on the other end of the camera was quite interesting.

Did you give Pattinson advice on being a photographer?

I got a camera to him quite a few months before we started shooting. An old Leica so he could put film in it and get comfortable with it.
