Of course, the subject of many interviews for Rob during his US COSMOPOLIS Promo a couple weeks ago was the supposed “affair” that his girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, was caught in, red-handed.
Actually, everyone has seen the stories — including Pattinson. “Yeah, I read it,” the 26-year-old British actor says during an interview at a New York hotel.“It’s my life. You sort of want to read it. You feel like you need to read it. It’s one of those things where you keep picking a scab. You know you shouldn’t be doing it, but it’s a weird kind of addiction. You desperately want to stop.”
“At times, I find the whole thing pretty funny,” Pattinson admits. “It is pretty funny. My life is kind of ridiculous to me. It’s so absurd at times.”
Obviously, Rob presses for more Cosmopolis talk during the interview and admits that he “didn’t fully understand” the script (Cosmopolis) at first. Cronenberg, similarly, had some reservations about casting Rob as his leading man, saying:
“I did my homework and watched Little Ashes (2008) and Remember Me (2010). I even watched interviews that Robert did. I wanted to know what this guy was like when he was just being himself. I wanted to get a feel of what he was like as a person. I wanted to know that he had a sense of humor, and he does. I finally said, ‘OK, this is the right guy.’ ”
