New Italian interview in one of the biggest Italian papers, Corriere della Serra, kind of like their version of The NY Times, with Robert Pattinson about his role in Life, coming to theaters in September, 2015.

Excerpt:

“To set myself free from the Twilight saga, I agreed to a role in Life,” says the actor who portrays the photographer of the movie star who died 60 years ago

Robert Pattinson: “Twilight? I am proud to be a part. I’m no longer forced to look for work as I did, especially before Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The popularity that ensued still gives me the peace of mind, even economic freedom, to select only projects I believe in. And Life is the proof.”

Robert Pattinson is going all out. He wants to distance itself from the role of teen idol in a saga that he certainly appreciates, but that still weighs on his status as an actor.

Pattinson plays the photographer Dennis Stock in Life, the year 1955, his turbulent friendship with the star (James Dean), the same one that gave him the opportunity to capture him in exclusive photos, both in New York (remember the famous shot of the actor with the cigarette in the rain on background of Times Square) and in his childhood home in Indiana.

What effect did it have for once not being photographed, but photographing the celebrities?
RP: I understand instinctively, that it may be difficult to deal with a star. When you’re on the red carpet, you don’t actually see photographers, you move, doing some moves, often studied, but in return you have no faces, only flashes. Of course, it was not easy for a photographer of that time, certainly not as it is today. For his part, however, Dean was able to keep his private life hidden enough. It was a different era, but no there was less desire to know the intimate details of his daily life than what happens today.

Idol of the young, beautiful, of course, not “cursed,” but still quite dark charm: when the script arrived did not think you would be right for the role of James Dean?
RP: I understand that you might think, but it would not be the right choice for both the good of character or for me. Comparisons would be made, I would be accused of presumption and, then, perhaps I myself would not be able to give that little extra something that DeHaan managed to do. From my point of view to portray Stock and his way of relating to someone is elusive, but in his way, charming, magnetic, and posed a challenge even more exciting than impersonating James Dean.

At the time of the story Stock was 27, he was already a father and struggled between work and family while pursuing his dream of becoming an accomplished photographer. You are almost the same age, 29, success has already happened but no wife or children, it seems that there couldn’t be a more distant character…

RP: At first glance, yes, but these are not the characteristics that most define a person. Becoming a successful parent involves variables that are not dependent on you, or rather, not on you alone. Half of it is luck and finding a person who, in addition to love, wants the same things that you want and at the time you want. I related to Stock in his determination of wanting to be an artist and also his touch of initial embarrassment that I often feel when I compare myself to someone for the first time.

You are a shy person?
RP: No, but I need some time to open up to anyone.

Even romantically? (Pattinson is engaged to the unique English singer FKA Twigs)
RP: With anyone, even in love.

Did you ever fear that the label “from Twilight” may have an adverse effect on your future in acting?
RP: The success of Twilight is something special that I will never regret. Ever since I started this career I’ve tried to improve myself, to challenge myself with different roles from those I’ve already played. If in 10 years we still speak of me as just the guy from “Twilight,” the blame will be mine alone.

Thank you CurzonStreet!

Robert Pattinson in the film of James Dean, but he is not the star. ‘The best’

“To set myself free from the Twilight saga, I agree to be a supporting actor in Life,” says the actor who plays the photographer of the movie star who died 60 years ago.

‘Twilight? I am proud to have been a part of it. I am no longer forced to pursue a job as I happened especially before Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The popularity that ensued still gives me the peace of mind, even economic, to select only projects I believe in. And Life is the proof. ” Robert Pattinson is going all out. He wants to distance himself from the role of teen idol to a saga that he certainly appreciates, but that still weighs on his credibility as an actor.

More than in the sense of the answer, this impatience is perceived in the way in which the scans. The tone of his voice is down, looks down to take time and look for an answer is not trivial. Sure, the look fake scruffy (beard and long hair, but not random, too much gel and cured sideburns too) helps, but he seems sincere, especially when talking about Life, his latest film (in theaters 30 September, the day of the anniversary of the death of James Dean). Pattinson plays the photographer Dennis Stock at the time, the year 1955, and his turbulent friendship with the star, the same one who gave him the opportunity to be portrayed in exclusive pictures in New York (remember the famous shot of the actor with the cigarette in the rain on background Trafalgar Square?) as well as in his childhood home in Indiana.

It is behind this collaboration that focuses the Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn, who in turn, is not only the director (his did the biopic of Ian Curtis, Control), but also appreciated photographer of music stars since the late ’70. As James Dean is played by Dane DeHaan, one of the emerging names in Hollywood (Harry Osborn in the last Spider-Man), while only female character of note is Pier Angeli, Italian actress of the 50s interpreted here by Alessandra Mastronardi.

What did you feel to be for once to not be photographed but to be photographing the celebrities?
I realized ith this role how it could be difficult to deal with a star. When you’re on the red carpet you actually not even see the photographers, you just do some moves, often studied, but in return you see no faces, only flash. Of course, it was not easy for a photographer at this time, certainly not as it is today. For its part, however, Dean was able to keep enough of his private life hidden. It was a different era, but there was less desire to know the intimate details of his daily life than today.

Idol of the young, handsome, of course, not “cursed”, but still quite dark charm: when the script arrived did you not think you would be right for the role of James Dean?
I understand that you might think that, but it would not be the right choice for both the character and me. Anyone would make the comparisons, I would be accused of presumption and, then, perhaps I myself would not be able to give that little extra that Dane managed to Ddeliver. From my point of view, telling about Stock and his way of relating to someone as an elusive person, but in its way charming, magnetic, posed a challenge even more exciting than impersonate the same Dean.

At the time of the story, Stock was 27, he was already a father and had been balancing between work and family while pursuing his dream of becoming an accomplished photographer: you are almost the same age, 29, things already happened workwise but you did not yet made a “family”, it seems that there can be a more distant character …
At first glance, yes, but these are not the characteristics that most define a person. Whether success is becoming a parent is a variable that depends on you, or rather, not only on you. There is half the luck and to find a person who, in addition to love, wants the same things that you want in the time you want it. Stock binds me by his determination in wanting to be an artist and also he has a touch of initial embarrassment that I often feel when I compare myself with someone I meet for the first time.

You are then a shy person?
No, but I put a little ‘to give confidence to anyone I newly meet.

Even romantically (Pattinson is about a year engaged to the eccentric English singer FKA Twigs)?
With anyone, even in love.

Did you ever fear that the “Twilight” label could negatively affect your future in acting?
The success of Twilight is something special that I will never regret. Ever since I started this career I am trying to improve myself, to challenge myself with different roles to those already interpreted. If in 10 years we will speak of me still just as the “Twilight” guy, the blame will be on mine alone.

"Life", Premiere, Berlin

Translated by Laura with the help of Google Translate

GUANAJUATO, 26 July.- Although many related and pigeonhole the name of Robert Pattinson in the Twilight series, there are others, such as Dutch director Anton Corbijn who see beyond the stigma and / or social labels.

That’s why I did not offer preposterous British actor the role of Dennis Stock, this famous photographer 50s that caught James Dean three months before his death in the film Life.

“I actually felt Robert tried to choose characters away from this whole Twilight saga.

He wants to prove to the world that he is a real actor who can do challenging roles and that reminded me of Dennis Stock, a photographer in his early work who wanted to check he was good at what he did. That part was something I found being a common trait between the two.

On the other hand, Robert is always being chased by photographers and I liked the idea that in the film had to act like a photographer behind a star, he said to answering questions asked by Excelsior, Anton Corbijn.

The director, who has been behind films like Control, recreating the last days of Joy Dovision vocalist, Ian Curtis, or documentaries about U2 and Depeche Mode, attended Friday night the Premiere of LIFE at the Teatro Juarez in Guanajuato City, his fourth feature as a director, as part of the 18th edition of International Film Festival of Guanajuato.

The filmmaker, who likewise attended the Festival last year to promote A Most Wanted Man, was forceful in ensuring that while speaking of James Dean, Life is not a movie about him, but the man behind the lense that made some emblematic images of the star which are well known all around the world.

“Whoever thinks that this film is about James, I’m afraid to say that is not so.

“In fact, when I was offered the script I did not care because I did not want to make a film about James Dean, however, when I began to see that the story was more about the photographer, I identified myself because basically that’s what I’ve been doing since 40 years, “he said.

In addition to Robert Pattinson, Life features performances of Dane DeHaan, Ben Kingsley, Kristen Hager and Joel Elgerton.

This film was shot in Canada and does not have release date in our country.

RPWWANTONLIFEGIFF

Anton Corbijn returns and GIFF welcomes him in style

In this third Red Carpet event presented in Guanajuato City within the Guanajuato International Film Festival (where many of this year’s participants, including the Series Lab panelists, were present) the most recent film by last year’s honoree Anton Corbijn was presented in the Juárez Theater, where last year he introduced Mexico to A Most Wanted Man. He found that experience so gratifying he wanted to come back for more.

To begin the presentation, hosts Laura de Ita and Leonardo Ortizgris came out to introduce the filmmaker. After briefly recounting his career as a photographer and filmmaker, they invited him up on stage. Once on stage, Anton Corbijn said he was listening to everything our hosts were saying and understood a few things, so he supposes they were talking about him. Corbijn briefly introduced his film, saying it’s something different for him, something lighter and a story he was attracted to because of his experience in photography. He stated clearly that the film is not a biopic of James Dean and if anyone went in expecting a James Dean biopic, they should probably leave.

Affirmatively, the film is not about the life of James Dean, but about a very specific time in his life in which he was already acting, but wasn’t really famous yet (of course, he was mostly famous after his Death). The film is about Dennis Stock (played by Robert Pattinson whose days as a vampire are well behind him), an independent photographer who was invited to a party held by director Nicholas Ray and there he met the young actor (played by Dane Dehaan, a young actor everyone should follow), hiding from all the attention. The film is about the friendship between these two young men which leads to the famous photograph that turned this figure into an icon. The two central performances stand out (particularly Dehaan, finding something deeper in the James Dean mannerisms we’re all familiar with) and the re-creation of this glamorous time in American cinema.

Pattinson does not make easy movies

Guanajuato.- Because Robert Pattinson after Twilight had shown he wanted off with the image of easy film actor, was chosen to star in Life, directed by Anton Corbijn.

On the tape plays professional photographer Dennis Stock, who becomes friends with James Dean, legend of cinema. That closeness was born after the image Stock took of Dean in 1955.

“I had noticed that he took roles out of the ordinary (Bel Ami and Cosmopolis) and wanted to be seen a real actor; and true that in his life he is chased by photographers, and now he must act as one, “the director recalled yesterday.

Corbijn is known in the audiovisual media by his American films and Control, as well as being director of music videos for bands like Depeche Mode.

Life Friday night appeared at the Teatro Juarez in this city, in the framework of the International Film Festival that ended this weekend.

“It is not a biography of James Dean, so people believing that will better Get out,” joked the filmmaker, shortly before the screening.

Already in the question and answer session at the end of the screening, he said the biggest challenge was to get away from the public image of the actor of Rebel Without a Cause and East of Eden.

The responsibility to bring him to life was given to Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spiderman) someone who physically does not look like the Hollywood star, so he had to change his looks like adding some ears.

“The challenge was to show the private Dean, not the one we all know, the actor also found how things were, how he talked and see the difference between the private person and the public”, narrated Corbijn.

“It’s based on a true story, one not so much emotional biographical film, but it returned, although there were changes for dramatic reasons,” he said.

Life still has no release date in Mexico. It was launched internationally in February, during the Berlinale and now it was the event of the Bajio.

In September, it will reach cinemas in France, UK and Ireland, one month later will be the turn of Italy and Germany.

Ben Kingsley, Allison Brennan and Joel Edgerton make up the cast of this film for nearly two hours.

“I knew some of the pictures of them, like the Times Square one, but never asked myself as a photographer; when they said they could make a movie about the latter’s it is when I decided to do it, “said Corbijn.

“Right now as I was watching the film did I remember the cold, almost all of it was filmed in Canada,” he said.
