On Austri’s version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire” the question was “According to the press, Robert Pattinson does not only love his co-star…….. in the movie”.
Thank you to @barnsie_com for sharing!
I have been lucky enough to meet Robert on a few occasions, so my trip to Berlin was because I was REALLY keen to see the movie. Watching from the red carpet would be fun, but a screening was my main objective. And to see a little of Berlin and also to have fun.
I had to get up at 4am for a 7am flight. Arrived in Berlin and first stop was the Dali exhibition, which is definitely worth avisit. On our way back, we chanced upon Robert and the cast/directors going into the press conference. There were LOTS of fans, but they were all very respectful and patient. Robert seemed to be happy and chilled and signed for AGES. We watched from the barrier, he is a delight to look at obviously, and this was an added bonus.
About 1pm we got in the line for return tickets, and at 2.30pm, the line was moved inside. We obtained tickets about 6.30pm, and the screening was due to start at 7.30pm.
The tickets were 12 euros, and we were on the Parkett level (same as the VIPS). I feel very very lucky.
Inside the theatre was a screening of the live feed, so we were kept busy whilst we waited for the screening to start.
Robert and the cast/directors arrived and were placed on the best row, in the middle of the movie theatre (Row 17 approximately). BEFORE the film, TLitBD (The Lady in the Black Dress) announced their names, and they all stood up where they were seated, and were applauded. I got a VERY blurry pic, which I will, of course, post.
My camera is hopeless, but I refuse to chuck it because Robert has used it. #normal
Then when the movie started, the main cast left.
His parents and family were sitting away from him, to my left (looking at the screen) and ten rows forward. My friend sat directly behind them, one row away. I was directly behind RP and CR but about 8 rows back.
His family all stayed for the screening, but the cast left. It was dark but I could tell Robert and Christina went. Not sure about Holliday or Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan.
Dean and another chap are listed in the credits as Security to Mr Pattinson (or similar) and Tom Sturridge is in the credits under Special Thanks, with a whole bunch of other people.
At the end of the movie, there was a lot of applause. Then, TLitBD came on again and announced them, and they all came on stage and that is when the mini interview happened.
Amongst other things, she says:
“Robert, where is your hair?”
He says: “I left it at home. What does that mean? What am I talking about, Jesus? I have been hiding too long. Sometimes I forget I have a microphone in front of my face” (or similar)
Then when they filed off stage, it was all over. There was no after party. The party was the night before (16 February, according to a lady we chatted to). I guess he had dinner with his family last night.
The European Film Market at the 62nd Berlinale was buzzing for Franco-American production The We and the I by Michel Gondry, pre-sold by the Parisian company Kinology. The new film by the director of Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind was filmed last year in New York in the Bronx, and follows high school students on the bus home on the last day of the school year. The film is a sort of study of group dynamics and the evolution of relationships as the bus gradually becomes emptier, and has been acquired in Berlin for several small territories, according to Grégoire Melin, who will unveil footage from the film a few weeks before Cannes, where he will also be counting on Cosmopolis by David Cronenberg, already pre-sold practically everywhere in the world.
Does this mean that we could see a CannesRobsten this year? I hope so!!
Kristen’s film, On The Road, is set to premiere at Cannes on May 23.
