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.’ ”

Through it all, he felt the love of his fans. The Twi-hards definitely have been Team Robert.
“I don’t credit that to myself,” Pattinson says. “It’s just that there is something elemental about the ‘Twilight’ books and the movies. The core story has connected to people.
“The fan love from that is kind of amazing. I guess it’s so much better than everyone hating you.”
By now he should have developed an attitude — if only he knew how.
“I want to change. I can’t make myself change. I can’t develop an attitude,” Pattinson says with a goofy giggle that is his trademark.
Adds Cronenberg, “I’ve seen him even try to change and it’s pathetic.”
In “Cosmopolis,” based on the novel by Don DeLillo, Pattinson plays a 28-year-old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager whose world is exploding. He gets into his stretch limo to get a haircut from his father’s old barber while wagering his company’s massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. His trip across the city becomes a journey as he runs into city riots, various visitors and intimate encounters.
Filming in a limo for so long wasn’t claustrophobic.
“I actually kind of enjoyed it,” he says. “In the beginning, I wanted to stay in the car for the entire day. But it was so unbearably hot. I couldn’t really do this method.
“The car made me really concentrate.”

In his interview with Screenslam during the NYC Cosmopolis press junket, Rob talks about Cosmopolis and his role as Eric Packer. He also discusses how frustrating it is that he reads a lot of similar scripts.
“I’ve never really worked on something where a director has ultimate control, it looked like very little people were questioning decisions, where as my experience on every film set I’ve ever had is just an unending series of everyone questioning the director, everyone questioning everything about everything and with this there was a very confidant atmosphere on set.” - Robert Pattinson
