LAURA’S NOTE: I honestly do not know what it says, except for the title ‘The Art of the parasites’… I guess it refers to the paparazzi…

DE VOLKSKRANT The Netherlands interview with Rob at the Berlinale by Floortje Smith, February 12th 2015: EX TEEN IDOL

Actor Robert Pattinson is used to the Red Carpet, where he, thanks to the Twilight series, was often waylaid by teenage girls. Now he plays a Red Carpet photographer in Anton Corbijn’s LIFE.

One of the first things that director, Anton Corbijn, did after he had cast Robert Pattinson was to put a camera in his hands. In the role of Dennis Stock, photographer of the international photo press bureau Magnum, the camera, he thought, had to become a part of his body. He had another reason: Pattinson had to feel how it is to be behind the camera instead of being in front of it.

The role that Pattinson plays in the new movie of Anton Corbijn, that got a special Gala Screening at Berlin, feels a bit like the world is upside-down. In the movie the world star and teen idol stands in between the photographers at the Red Carpet where in real life the 28 year old actor is waylaid by photographers.

Life is about the complicated relationship between the relatively unknown David Stock and the Hollywood star James Dean. Stock did an iconic photo shoot with Dean in 1955. He is the man behind the world famous picture of James Dean on Times Square in which he walks straight at the camera huddled in a dark coat, cigarette in his mouth. Stock met Dean (played by Dane DeHaan) just before his big break. A photo shoot could help both of their careers, he reasoned.

Pattinson felt an immediate connection with Stock. ‘A tragical figure really’, he says in a hotel room in Berlin. Would it have not been more logical for Anton Corbijn to have him cast as James Dean? If someone knows how it feels to be famous from one day to another it’s him. Because of his role as Edward Cullen in the fantasy film series Twilight his life changed into a chaos of screaming teenage girls and paparazzi.

“Still it cannot be compared”, emphasizes the actor. “People look at James Dean as if he is some kind of spiritual leader: tell us how we should live. They never saw me like that.”

Life is set in the weeks before the premiere of James Dean’s debut movie ‘East of Eden’ (1955). Everybody predicted that he would become world famous. The actor realizes that ‘everything around it’ is just as important as acting and that the studio has him in its claws. It suffocates him. That is something Pattinson doesn’t recognize: “We had no idea that Twilight would become so successful. Only the week before its release we saw a growing interest on the internet.” When the craziness exploded Pattinson found it all very surrealistic. “I had no expectations of what would happen, so I didn’t get disillusioned as Dean did. I see it as a door that opened, I didn’t know what was on the other side, but I was curious and took a look. Later I realized that “oh, this is not going away”. The door closed behind me.

Now three years after the release of the last movie the craziness is diminishing. In the movies he is now, he plays small roles, like the role of T.E. Lawrence of Arabia in ‘Queen of the Desert’ by Werner Herzog or the limo driver in Cronenberg’s ‘Maps to the Stars’. According to Anton Corbijn this is where the connection with his role as Stock is. Because Pattinson became popular at such a young age, he now wants to prove himself, says Anton Corbijn. That he plays a photographer who wants to prove himself is an interesting parallel.

In his career Pattinson makes wayward choices that turn out well. If everything goes well with the financing, he will be seen in movies of cult-director Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers, Trash Humpers) and James Gray (We Own the Night, The Immigrant). Pattinson is a huge huge fan of their work. “They were the first directors I personally approached when I noticed that the scripts I wanted to do were not offered to me, so I decided to contact the directors I admire myself.”

This week the news has been released that Robert Pattinson will be in the western-thriller Brimstone by the Dutch director Martin Koolhoven. “The story is fantastic; I have an idea how I want to do it. It’s a dangerous role, but I can’t say much about it. And the cameraman is the same one as in in ‘Rundkop’ and I think that movie is fantastic.”

In the meantime Koolhoven is getting crazy of the messages he gets on Twitter from Pattinson fans worldwide. It is hard to imagine all these teenage girls watching a Harmony Korine movie. Pattinson: “I do not know very well what my fans like. I remember that I had to film a scene (????) with Don DeLillo (the 78 year old author) and he was ambushed by 15 year old girls that wanted him to sign their books. Great. If even only one of them read the book, I have the feeling I did some good.

EIGHT DAYS ON A CAMEL
During the Film Festival in Berlin Robert Pattinson can also be seen as T.E. Lawrence in Werner Herzog’s ‘Queen of the Desert’. A small, but challenging role: with the same role in ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ the actor Peter o’ Toole wrote movie history. During the press screening there were laughs when he first appeared on the screen with the famous keffiyeh on his head. “Eight days on a camel that is about the only thing I remember. If the role would have been bigger, I would not have done it. Werner Herzog made T.E. Lawrence into a funny person. Also I do not look like the real T.E. Lawrence at all.”

SPECIAL NOTE revealed by @RobsPromotion

IMPORTANT NOTE: When in a personal mail Floortje Smith (reporter) is asked about some details, she replies: “He is very cute and nice. Good in Life as well. I’m very curious of what he is going to do next.”
She listened to the interview tape again and said: “He said that you never know with small movies you can only be sure when you are on set, but he really really wants to do these movies.” About the Korine project: “That is apparently happening too, but I mean… people… different cast and the budget suddenly changes and all that stuff. But I love the movie. It is great and my part that is completely insane as well.”

Source, thank you @RobsPromotion for sharing and translating this great interview!

@robpattinsonww

Just back at the hotel after a crazy tiring day without wifi… First let me tell you ‘LIFE’ is BEAUTIFUL!!! #RPWWatBerlinale – Laura

‘LIFE’ is a photograph in motion, beautiful colors, perfect direction, fantastic story where we discover 2 opposite people #RPWWatBerlinale

A James Dean we do not really expect in @danedehaan who was just brilliant in his mannerisms and even voice #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale

A Rob who shows us once more how talented he is with his way of acting and being the famous photographer #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale

Funny moment: when Dennis tries drugs and we have a Rob completely hilarious and phenomenal! #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale

Now, the meetings…Anton Corbijn & @danedehaan are sweethearts as usual, Anton signed my magazine #RPWWatBerlinale

‘@danedehaan stopped just for me for a blurry but sweet picture… Next is his name at the cinema #RPWWatBerlinale

The following pictures are bad… It was cold & I was nervous because the press conference ran late #RPWWatBerlinale

As we had seats for the premiere we were scared of missing Rob knowing we waited 12H in the cold #RPWWatBerlinale

But as always Rob has been a sweetheart signing for everyone #RPWWatBerlinale

He was very classy with his red tie and beard <3 #RPWWatBerlinale

He had a special present from a fan and stopped longer like a gentleman he is #RPWWatBerlinale

I think I never ran so fast in my life... We were in time and saw Rob had a seat in the theatre #RPWWatBerlinale

He stayed a bit but left to return at the end.Didn't see him leaving as the movie was so intriguing #RPWWatBerlinale

Believe me all the pictures shared while filming are accurate. It is like they come to life in front of us #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale

The friendship between Dennis and James is singular but so well described in both part. Dennis is the heart of it... #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale

Nevertheless we learn so much about James Dean as a person and we realize that Anton kinda gave an explanation to Dennis' photos #LIFE

For example the picture taken on Times Square... Anyway. So many things to say about the movie... Going to see him again on Wednesday #LIFE

Oh! Just remembered something really important! In the end of the screening Anton Corbijn talked... #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale

And he said how important it was for him to show his work before it is due... #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale

He also said that we will have to wait a long time for this one... Thought it was important to let you know #LIFE #RPWWatBerlinale - Laura

BEWARE OF SPOILERS

‘LIFE’ is a living photograph

Having seen so many pictures of the set, having seen Anton Corbijn previous works and knowing Rob and Dane’s talent, I was really looking forward this movie and I was definitely not disappointed.

This movie is one of the most beautiful movie Rob has been a part of.

All the pictures we saw from the set are actually the movie, only those pictures move. It is something incredible and beautiful at the same time. Minus the scene with the cows which is not a part of the movie. Nevertheless animals are still there and Rob interacts with them.

We just are not in 2015 anymore, we are back in 1955 with the cars, the music which is chosen wisely, with the costumes. Everything makes us go back in time. The movie begins with a red light, the dark room where Dennis works and it ends almost the same way, full circle there. This is like the movie is an ode for art. All arts are represented in the movie making it complete and special.

Anton Corbijn makes us discover a world where every scene looks like a photograph with vivid colors, with soul in each of the people being in the movie. He succeeds in telling a story we did not really know and he transforms everything as it is art. He uses everything he can to make a scene complete. The way he films, the way he directs his actor, the way he uses landscapes and decors. This movie is a piece of art. And the cameo of him, on the red carpet with Rob playing paparazzi is something symbolic. Very moving.

Dane DeHaan, looking sometimes a little bit Young, is just perfect in James Dean role. I learned thanks to the movie who James Dean was apart from this big movie star loved by everyone. He is entirely James Dean, his moves, his voice, the way he talks… At one point, this is not Dane you see, but James.
Being a poem lover, I really love the one used in the movie which describe James Dean perfectly, or at least how he felt:

We must get home by James Whitcomb Riley:

We must get home! How could we stray like this?–
So far from home, we know not where it is,–
Only in some fair, apple-blossomy place
Of children’s faces–and the mother’s face–
We dimly dream it, till the vision clears
Even in the eyes of fancy, glad with tears.

We must get home–for we have been away
So long, it seems forever and a day!
And O so very homesick we have grown,
The laughter of the world is like a moan
In our tired hearing, and its song as vain,–
We must get home–we must get home again!

We must get home! With heart and soul we yearn
To find the long-lost pathway, and return!…
The child’s shout lifted from the questing band
Of old folk, faring weary, hand in hand,
But faces brightening, as if clouds at last
Were showering sunshine on us as we passed.

We must get home: It hurts so staying here,
Where fond hearts must be wept out tear by tear,
And where to wear wet lashes means, at best,
When most our lack, the least our hope of rest–
When most our need of joy, the more our pain–
We must get home–we must get home again!

We must get home–home to the simple things–
The morning-glories twirling up the strings
And bugling color, as they blared in blue-
And-white o’er garden-gates we scampered through;
The long grape-arbor, with its under-shade
Blue as the green and purple overlaid.

We must get home: All is so quiet there:
The touch of loving hands on brow and hair–
Dim rooms, wherein the sunshine is made mild–
The lost love of the mother and the child
Restored in restful lullabies of rain,–
We must get home–we must get home again!

The rows of sweetcorn and the China beans
Beyond the lettuce-beds where, towering, leans
The giant sunflower in barbaric pride
Guarding the barn-door and the lane outside;
The honeysuckles, midst the hollyhocks,
That clamber almost to the martin-box.

We must get home, where, as we nod and drowse,
Time humors us and tiptoes through the house,
And loves us best when sleeping baby-wise,
With dreams–not tear-drops–brimming our clenched eyes,–
Pure dreams that know nor taint nor earthly stain–
We must get home–we must get home again!

We must get home! The willow-whistle’s call
Trills crisp and liquid as the waterfall–
Mocking the trillers in the cherry-trees
And making discord of such rhymes as these,
That know nor lilt nor cadence but the birds
First warbled–then all poets afterwards.

We must get home; and, unremembering there
All gain of all ambition otherwhere,
Rest–from the feverish victory, and the crown
Of conquest whose waste glory weighs us down.–
Fame’s fairest gifts we toss back with disdain–
We must get home–we must get home again!

We must get home again–we must–we must!–
(Our rainy faces pelted in the dust)
Creep back from the vain quest through endless strife
To find not anywhere in all of life
A happier happiness than blest us then …
We must get home–we must get home again!

Kristian Brunn is really hilarious in this movie as he is a character invented but making it lighter and funny. Such a pleasure to have seen him in it.

Last but not least, Rob. Dennis Stock is a singular man. Lost. He works to survive but at the same time he has this talent making him do crazy things as following James Dean to have this photo essay done for LIFE. He believes in James. He sees something more, he sees with the lence he says. Dennis Stock is a dad but he does not know how to act like one, loosing himself in work, making promises he won’t hold. He has never had the possibility to let loose and meeting James helps him do just that. For example, the jazz club where James brings Dennis and there, he discovers drugs. Hilarious moment for us fans as we see an hyper Rob, talking so fast and with complete non sense who ends up being intimate with this girl in the restrooms. Hot moment for sure. It is like meeting James Dean makes him realise who he is and what he could be capable of.
Moment I liked too was when James joked about Dennis not saying the grace before eating, so Dennis says “Two, Four, Six, Eight, Dig in before it is too late”, making Rob looking all fun and sweet.

Rob is different in this role, we discover another part of his talent. He can picture a photographer with talent, being not so sure of him but inspiring confidence. He is sweet and fun and handsome. At one point, we see him with his shirt and underwear, making us melt for sure. As the moment before we just discover a disgustingly adorable scene where because of the drugs he just vomits on his own son…
Being on the other side, being the photographer, you can sometimes detect his uneasiness at taking pictures of someone famous at the time but all is forgotten when he just takes the camera and takes pictures. He seems like he is used to it. In ‘LIFE’ he experiments lots of feelings and emotions and he knows how to use those and act with them. He brings new acting skills that we never saw and as much as this movie is different from ‘The Rover’, he makes his character as strong as he did Rey. Another reason to be proud of being his fan nowadays.

‘LIFE’ makes you smile, laugh, cry and see more than expected. The acting is stellar, the direction is wonderful, the story is amazing and interesting, the images are art. Anton Corbijn brings life to ‘LIFE’ and his choice for actors just proves how good he is. Dane and Rob make the perfect best friends, a little piece of normalcy in James Dean’s life. ‘LIFE’ means so much, more than the magazine, more than life itself. ‘LIFE’ is in what makes you happy, what makes you act like you do every day, what makes you smile, what makes you who you are. ‘LIFE’ is home too.

I really hope the movie will be on the screens soon enough because it deserves to be known and shown. A little piece of perfection in the cinema business.

First and foremost, I would like to thank the girls who lived this experience with me, Tanja, Laura W, Eileen, Elaine, Lynne and Jessica. The pictures and story are property of Robert Pattinson Worlwide and friends.

Six nights including two sleeping in the cold floor in front of the tickets counter, seven days unbelievable with people I am very to have met and learned to know a bit.
Day one (Thursday 5th, 2015) is arriving in Berlin, discovering the hotel, meeting with the girls and the surprise that night: sleeping on the floor to get tickets for ‘LIFE’ Premiere. Because they say when we love, we don’t count, here it is for us to just get one of those 20/25 tickets they have left for fans… Believe me, coldest night and high anxiety to get those tickets! During the night we joked around, and I had so much fun with Laura and Tanja as we invented crazy nicknames and shared crazy stories as we were so tired and cold…

And as you may have seen on twitter, we succeeded and it was one of the best moment ever.

Day two (Friday 6th, 2015) had the tickets as a beginning and no sleep as we still hoped to have Rob going at the ‘Queen of the desert’ press conference. We went out there and waited to not see him but Franco who we named mister smiles (I think you can guess why seeing the pictures). We then went to the premiere here Rob was still not there. Let me tell you sleep has never been better after that!

Day three (Saturday 7th, 2015) involved the first time I saw ‘Queen of the Desert’ (you can see my tweets HERE and my review HERE). I was so impressed and very happy to see Rob so perfect in a T.E. Lawrence so hilarious and incredible. One of the best moment. We then had to go back to the tickets counter for the night to be able to have tickets for a second ‘Life’ screening, the last one before my return to Paris. Note that the two screen picture are courtesy of Laura W, where we can see Rob’s name and Dean’s name, always there for Rob in all his movies. Note too that Laura W and Tanja went to the Zoo Palast the afternoon to see the place and they were pleased to see Dean and then took a picture of him who smiled at them afterwards

Day four (Sunday 8th, 2015) was a day of sleep and meetings. I met back with the Italian girls I already met in Cannes. Talking about the day after which will be the day of ‘Life’ press conference and premiere. The day we will see Rob and show him our eternal support.Note the talent of Jessica who made and offered to me the drawing of Rob but also the bear she will offer to Rob on the red carpet of ‘Life’ naming him best actor

Day five (Monday 9th, 2015) it is time. 9AM in front of the Hyatt for the press conference which is programmed at 7:45PM. We make plans, we see other actors as Ryan Renolds, Dame Mirren, Max Irons, James Franco… and so many more… We were alone for most of the day and then people arrived, late arrival, late departure, a run for the theatre after seeing Rob who was so lovely and sweet as usual… We ran to the Zoo Palast, making my cold much worse than it already was and then they introduced the team and then the movie… Emotions, Rob perfect as Dennis Stock. Such fond memories.

IMG_3112

Day six (Tuesday 10th, 2015), time to get some sleep and just try to feel better…

Day seven (Wednesday 11th, 2015) time to leave Berlin and the incredible days we lived. But before, last screening of ‘Life’ which was so much better than the first as we discover new details, new perfections, new colors.

IMG_3157

Definitely different from Cannes but so grateful to say I saw the movies and both of them deserve to be seen and appreciated! Proud to be Rob’s fan!
Laura
