'map to the stars' film photocall, 67th cannes film festival, france - 19 may 2014, ,
Updated translation by Laura, please credit the website.

After his Cannes escapade, where he ascended the famous steps, Robert Pattinson confided in Télepro.

We met the young British actor of 28 years for the release of his movie ‘The Rover’ this Wednesday, June 4th.

What do you think of your experience at the Cannes Festival?

It is not my first time on the Croisette, but it is always kind of an emotional shock for me (laugh). I am surprised to see at what point the people are passionate about movies… sometimes a little bit too much! I was shocked while reading some reviews about the movie, really virulent. I do not understand why some journalists are angry. There is such aggressiveness sometimes during the Festival. Some say it is part of the game in Cannes but, god, it is just a movie!

What are your favorite movies and who are your favorite actors?

I think I have seen ‘Fear and loathing in Vegas’ about a million times. I know all the dialogues! I am equally a huge fan of ‘One flew over a cuckoo’s nest’. I love ‘The Mask’ too. Jim Carrey is one of my favorite actors. He is one of the best comedians of his generation. I admire comical actors.

After the monstrous success of the saga, it must not be easy to move on from ‘Twilight’…

‘Twilight’ had been an exceptional adventure. I would certainly not be here without its movies. I owe everything to ‘Twilight’, but I am happy I moved on. I felt secure saying to myself if one of my projects did not work I would always have a ‘Twilight’ movie. Now that is not accurate anymore, I have to take risks in the choices I am making. And it forces me to be better.

Translation via Pattinson Art Work:

With two films in the official selection at Cannes, actor handle serenely the “post-Twilight.”

On a terrace of the Palais des Festivals swept by the wind, a man with his head tucked into his shoulders, pulls on his cigarette. A bodyguard stands a few meters from him. The anonymous smoker is Robert Pattinson. With two films in official selection, Maps To The Stars, by David Cronenberg, and The Rover, by David Michôd, the actor was one of the attractions in Cannes. When we arrive at our rendez-vous on the Croisette, he doesn’t look fit. The day before, he was doing the closing of the Silencio, the Parisian club relocated in Cannes during the festival. He woke up ten minutes before his appointments with the press.

He is tired and spontaneous, willing to talk about these two filmmakers who helped bury the sexy vampire. The hero of the Twilight Saga pays first his debt to the Canadian Cronenberg. Like in Cosmopolis, in 2012, Pattinson is back in a limousine in Maps to the Stars, but this time behind the wheel. “It’s a supporting role, but I said yes before even reading the script. I’d do anything with this guy.” His character is a limo driver in Hollywood who presents himself as an “actor writer.” “I used to say that at the beginning but not anymore,” jokes the British that moved to Los Angeles several years ago. “I missed London at the beginning, but most of my friends left and Los Angeles is a beautiful city, dynamic. And at the same time very weird. All depends on the people you hang out with…”

Simple Pleasures

In Hollywood, scripts and filmmakers go to him. Thus David Michôd, whose Pattinson admires his first film, Animal Kingdom, meets and chooses him among thousands of actors. Why him? “Because his face fascinates me, he is both beautiful and atypical” the director tells us. The actor spent seven weeks in the Australian desert, a nine-hour drive from the nearest town. He enjoys solitude, a real luxury for this young 28 year old man harassed by paparazzi.

After his love story and breakup with his partner from Twilight, Kristen Stewart, who made him the favourite prey of the tabloids, the star has rediscovered simple pleasures: “I loved being able to pee peacefully in the nature.” The former model has also enjoyed to break a little his icon image for teens with a borderline character. “At the first reading, I wondered if this guy was mentally handicapped. David Michôd told me he didn’t know. I did a lot of improvisation to, but I think they have all been cut off!”

Since, Pattinson shot with Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. Upcoming films with James Gray, Harmony Korine and Olivier Assayas has been announced. He would even be one of the contenders for the part of Indiana Jones, as a replacement of Harrison Ford. A boost to his career which doesn’t need one.

Google Translate:

Robert , you are in Cannes to present but not not one but two films. Is this a coincidence ?
This is a nice surprise, although I admit that I really wanted that The Rover in particular is shown here. Actually we missed all the other festivals in the hope to be here. It has even staked everything on Cannes because it is the most beautiful in the world . Particularly as for a different one film.

As Maps to the stars , this is a film constructed outside the Hollywood system . Is this an indicator of the direction you want your career after Twilight adventure ?
What guides me is the desire to work with a director . I realized that if I worked with the best in the world, there were chances that I am happy with the result ( smiles ) . I have work experience really satisfactory. There are twenty filmmakers with whom I want to work and I just started . The next ? This year Harmony Korine and Olivier Assayas . Then James Gray in January. We met , we became friends . And waited to find the right project .

In your place , many young players try to land a superhero role , or at least a role in a big franchise. Have you considered ?
I never auditioned for this kind of film. And I ‘m not even sure I know how to make a superhero. If I have my place in this world ( he thinks) . It does not mean that I would not do a big studio film at some point . Besides I look full. But I really struggled to find me there, as an actor.

“In the first assembly, some of my dialogues were inaudible “

In The Rover , you play a guy a little simpleton , which we do not know much except that he is the scapegoat of his brother. How did you get the role ?
On first reading , I heard his voice in my head. That of a guy who talks so low force being told to close his mouth. (laughs). So much so that every word that comes out of his mouth is suffering. It was great fun though watching the first cut , some of my dialogue was inaudible !

You are also the generic Maps to the stars , David Cronenberg . Hollywood depicts it is it as black as you know ?
I ‘ve always had a good time in Hollywood. Actually I like her dirty side as long as I do not spend the whole year, that I do not become a caricature as we see in the film. Remain an observer: I can tell you that there is a lot of weird people out there .

You often come across ?
All the time! Actually I am perhaps now …

Do not tell me you sell your stool on the Internet as the young actors of the movie!
Ah if I could … (laughs) Frankly everyone in Hollywood is a little crazy. The actors are in essence , if we consider that we are asked to play the variety of human emotions, sometimes in the same film. I assure you that you will struggle to meet more people dingo ! (laughs)

CANNES, France — Robert Pattinson has terrible, rotted teeth and is caked in dirt for his leading role in The Rover. The star could not be happier with the transformation after years of being a heart throb in the Twilight films.

“I am trying to eliminate any bit of vanity,” says Pattinson of his grimed up role. “I want to avoid any opportunity to pose (for the camera). Or whatever. Because if you get that opportunity to pose, you will probably take it.”

The results have been impressive. Pattinson has earned some of the best reviews of his career in the David Michod film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and opens in the USA June 13.

The post-apocolyptic story features a grimy Pattinson joining up with a former soldier (Guy Pearce) who is trying to get back his last precious possession on Earth — his stolen car.

The unglamorous lead role, along with a supporting role in David Cronenberg’s film A Map to the Stars, has earned Pattinson a return trip to the Cannes festival which he attended for the first time in 2012 (with Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis).

Pattinson says the 2012 trip set in motion a game plan to return to Cannes as much as possible.

“I decided right then I wanted to get every film into Cannes. It was something I have been specifically aiming for, 100%,” says Pattinson. “It’s just the best place to promote movies and this festival has this cachet.”

In Cannes 2012, the press conference monitor had to warn journalists before Pattinson took to the stage that he would not entertain questions about vampires.

This year, Pattinson seems to have finally gotten past that. He feels like a fixture at Cannes rather than a novelty. The word Twilight was not even mentioned in his press appearances, even if one Japanese television reporter asked Pattinson to simply say something to his fans back in Japan during a press conference (it was awkward).

“It’s strange. I have a disassociation now. It’s odd to live that same life,” says Pattinson of his Twilight past. “But I have always had that disassociation. I’ve never understood the crowds screaming. This is a job.”

The Rover also gave Pattinson the distinct advantage of being deep in the Australian Outback, where Pattinson was able to shoot a movie outdoors without fear of paparazzi jumping out of bushes.

“So there wasn’t some jackass trying to get a picture of me making a stupid face,” says Pattinson. “We were in a town of 50 people. They wouldn’t know who to sell a picture to even if they wanted to.”

He says the freedom allowed him to feel completely at ease out in the open and aided his performance. “It changed the whole way I worked completely,” says Pattinson. “It was totally losing self-consciousness. It was like working underwater. It was nice.”

He talks excitedly about working with director Olivier Assayas on their next, untitled film (* Idol’s Eyes*).

“His stuff always gets into Cannes and it’s such a great script,” says Pattinson. “But I don’t want to speak too soon.”

But the actor with the biggest smile on his face may have been Robert Pattinson, who earned some of his best reviews yet for “The Rover,” the Australian action film directed by David Michod which screened to critics over the weekend. He also had strong buzz going into Monday’s competition debut of “Maps to the Stars,” a drama directed by David Cronenberg.

“He’s incredibly respectful,” Pattinson told Variety, saying he would love to collaborate with Cronenberg again. The two first worked together on 2012′s “Cosmopolis.”

Pattinson said that he’s getting ready to shoot actor Brady Corbet’s directorial debut, “The Childhood of a Leader.” He added that “Brady is just brilliant.” And Pattinson revealed that he’s been talking to “Spring Breakers” director Harmony Korine about starring in one of his upcoming projects, although the details haven’t been worked out yet.
Pattinson acknowledged the role of Edward Cullen that made him an international superstar came as a complete surprise.

“No one thought it was going to be a big deal,” Pattinson said of the 2008 vampire movie. “We thought it was going to be like ‘Thirteen,’” he said, referencing the directorial debut of Catherine Hardwicke.
“I couldn’t do another ‘Twilight’ movie,” said Pattinson, who is 28. “I’m too old.”

Herzog claims that cinema has “a very unique way” of dealing with the vampire myth, and while his high esteem for Kinski’s legacy has barred him from considering most future iterations, a surprising exception is the “Twilight” series of films. His reaction? “Not that bad, I was surprised to find.”

“We have to take it seriously that there are films out there that know how to address a 14 or 15-year-old,” he added. “This is a very special sort of approach and I couldn’t do it, yet these films could. I see that much of it is silly but at the same time I respect these films. And I just worked with one of the actors, Robert Pattinson [in Herzog’s upcoming ‘Queen of the Desert’], and he’s a wonderful, fine actor. He’s clearly stepping out of these roles that make the teenies screech.”
