ROBERT PATTINSON INTERVIEW OF A HANDSOME MAN LIKE NO OTHER

Robert Pattinson : Nowadays I just enjoy myself

From blockbusters to Indy movies, the girls’ idol reinvent his career. At LIFE lead,
by Anton Corbijn, he talks with us about being famous, burgers and vampires.

We all dreamed about his fangs in our neck. But this fantasy has now been thrown
away! Robert Pattinson, the sexiest vampire, paparazzi’s preferred subject since
Twilight, has totally done his transformation. Two chic films by David Cronenberg,
Cosmopolis and Maps To The Stars and then, The Rover by David Michôd, an incredible
road trip in the Australian desert, changed him. As if, after the Twilight
phenomenon, the independent cinema let him serenely affirm his acting skills. In
Life by Anton Corbijn (control, a most wanted man…), releasing on September 9th,
Robert Pattinson acts with sincerity the photographer Dennis Stock, James Dean’s
friend (the famous pictures on Times Square and in the Indiana farm where the
fifties teens idol grew up were his). On the verge to take off for Colombia where he
will continue the filming of The Lost City of Z by James Gray, Robert Pattinson had
a chat with us over the phone. His ‘biting’ happy voice and his generous laughter.
We need to calm down!

Elle: Hello? Robert Pattinson?
Rob: Yep, it is.

E: you are one of the most photographed celebrities in the entire world. Did playing
a photographer make you happy?
Rob: (laugh) we need to reset the context. In the fifties, we could not be
photographer just like they do today with cellphones, technical knowledge were needed. It was a noble job.

E: how did you prepare for it?
Rob: Anton Corbijn loaned me a 1944 Leica telling me ‘try to make it your friend and to consider it like the extent of your hand because you won’t leave it during all the filming’!

E: did you take some pictures?
Rob: yes. Just a big fail! I could not even show them to Anton. (Laugh. Anton
Corbijn is a photographer himself)

E: watching the trailer, we could wonder if you would not have preferred playing
James Dean?
Rob: certainly not. Dane dehaan is perfect for the role. Myself, I never had any passion for James Dean. When I needed a hero to identify myself to, James Dean did not fascinate me. He was from another time. I did not look like him at all. Nevertheless, Dane knew everything about him before the movie.

E: the friendship between these two men is interesting…
Rob: my character, Dennis stock, was only three years older than James Dean when he lost his innocence. He already was a father, with responsibilities. His goal was to become an artist. He wanted to consecrate 100% of his time to photography, so wife and child were not a part of this journey.

E: as James Dean was still a teenager…
Rob: he was a born artist. The children’s world is familiar to him. Or at least he shares their imagination. There is this magnificent scene in the Indiana farm where my character takes a picture of James Dean while playing with his little cousin. This is a scene I loved because I needed to translate through the screen the envy as well as jealousy.

E: if James Dean was still alive, how will he live the over exposure in media?
Rob: badly of course. What is happening today would make someone go crazy.

E: what about you, how do you bear with this situation?
Rob: what is terrible is that I became famous when the world changed. In 2008, everyone had a cellphone, it was the explosion from social media. Results being freedom to protect his private life became thin. As well as all the paparazzi who just camped in front of your house you had also this whole lot of fans who relayed the info on social media. It became impossible to bear with.

E: did your personality change?
Rob: at some point, I became paranoid. I did not go out of home anymore, in Los Angeles. It was hell. And, at the same time, I was aware of the situation ridicule. It had no sense.

E: what is, for example, the worse thing said about you?
Rob: you will laugh but as a subject of her gracious highness, hearing people say I was American was the worse insult ever. I am British! Know it now and forever!

E: did your couple with Kristen Stewart suffer because of it?
Rob: I prefer not talking about this

E: you left Los Angeles for london to live there. Is it love which brought you back
there? (He forms a couple with the British singer FKA Teigs)
Rob: (laugh) to be precise, I live between Los Angeles and London. But I admit coming back to london is a pleasure. I am left alone. It is like this in all Europe. The other day I was walking around in Paris, no one bothered me.

E: did some French director contact you already?
Rob: yes! For a super project which I cannot talk about because it is not signed yet. But I am dreaming of filming with her!

E: so she is a woman?
Rob: oh my god (in English in the interview) I said enough!

E: when we talk about artistic metamorphosis about yourself, how do you feel about it?
Rob: it is a bit exaggerated right? The ‘happy Twilight’ accident happened as I call it which made me meet David Cronenberg. Filming two movies with him created new opportunities for me.

E: what if they ask you about filming another Twilight?
Rob: We never know!

E: by going to Indy movies, does it scare you to loose your fans?
Rob: on the contrary. I think that my name on a poster just rallies my fans. I hope to make them curious and to show them another vision of the cinema. And it is not to forget they are growing up as well. And they maybe don’t want to see all their life Robert Pattinson playing vampires. We tend to underestimate fans. It is an error. The fan is as well a spectator as anyone.

E: would you say this blockbuster offered you freedom on a silver plate?
Rob: it is undeniable. Today I enjoy myself. As filming The childhood of a leader with my old friend Brady Corbet. It is his first movie as a director.

E: it is the movie with Berenice behind right?
Rob: yes. She is great. And, she gave me dietetic advice: ‘every morning, you can drink or eat whatever you want. The rest of the day, you just have to be careful’ I asked her: ‘even burgers for the morning?’ And she answered: ‘of course little wolf’

E: so you are an happy Englishman in london?
Rob: yes! As I have ever been before!

James Dean: Reborn in “Life”

Anton Corbijn chose Robert Pattinson, whose early teen idol status is reminiscent of the one James Dean inherited in his time. “It was interesting to ask Robert to embody Dennis Stock, since he’s lived with this constant pressure of the lens, after his success in ‘Twilight.’ This fueled his interpretation and approach of the role,” says the director.

By exploiting the opposition of the personalities and trajectories of these two characters, the movie ultimately portrays a photographer who revealed himself to others and to himself, because of his contact with his subject. Because if Dennis Stock changed James Dean’s destiny, James Dean has also changed Dennis Stock’s destiny.

RPWWROBLIFEDENNISSTOCK

Life comes from director Anton Corbijn (Control, A Most Wanted Man), documenting the time that Dean and Stock spent together, just before Dean became famous. In a statement, Corbijn called his work with Pattinson and DeHaan a “tremendous experience”:

“I cannot wait for the story of Dennis Stock and James Dean, which is at the center of LIFE, to come to an American audience, as it played a part in the permanent cultural changes of the last century within American society and beyond. It was a tremendous experience to work with Rob Pattinson and Dane DeHaan in bringing this story to life, no pun intended, and I’d like to thank Cinedigm for spreading the word, and the visuals.”
