Sarah Gadon Talks Rob w/ Pulp Mag

 

In Cronenberg’s upcoming film Cosmopolis (slated for an early 2012 release), Gadon plays the better halt to another powerful man; this time to a Manhattan multimillionaire who, in the course of 24 hours, loses his entire fortune. Dead center in another cast of heavy-hitting actors, including Paul Giamatti and Juliette Binoche, it is Robert Pattinson (said millionaire) that has garnered early buzz for the film and by association, brought Gadon’s name to the forefront. In the weeks leading up to pre-production, Gadon consciously avoided any Pattinson-themed media–a near-impossible feat in the climate of Twilightmania.

“My decision not to read any of Robert’s interviews or press [stemmed from] my desire to go into the project without any preconceived notions [about him] that might inform our work together.”

Gadon recalls coming into her camera test and sitting across from Pattinson only to emerge, hours later, to mobs of people outside the building screaming his name. She is quick to dispel the “celeb” stereotype, saying that in their working relationship, Pattinson was “refreshingly normal” and perhaps shockingly, “deeply concerned about the development of his career.”

“It was wonderful to watch Robert in such an intelligent project, and for David, [Robert's fan base] will open up a younger demographic.”

Not a bad deal for Gadon either, for whom both Pattinson’s and Cronenberg’s names will translate too much less anonymity.

If at first somewhat overcome with excitement and anticipation at the thought of working with such big names, Gadon is levelheaded and thoughtful about the process.

New Pic of Rob in Bravo Mag (Germany) + Scans

 

Awesome – “Breaking Dawn Part 1″ is one of the most popular movies of 2011. It has climbed to the top of the movie charts worldwide and made 500 Mio Euro so far. Everyone loves vampire Edward and werewolf Jacob. But are the two principal performers Robert Pattinson (25) and Taylor Lautner (19) heroes in real life, too? And what happened if they wouldn’t only dominate the movie hit lists but also the whole world? That’s what BRAVO wanted to know – and as always they don’t agree on each other’s opinion…

BRAVO: Imagine you were the kings of the world – what dreams of yours would you make come true?
ROB: First of all, I would standardize the system of education. It’s way too complicated all over the world. Also, kids and teens are teached too little for their futute and what they really need in later life.
ROB: Oh! I have another idea: teleporting! I would use the whole national property to do research in teleporting. You could beam yourself anywhere, no more pollution by cars and aircraft!

BRAVO: And what would you prohibit right away?
ROB: I would prohibit boring people (laughs). In my opinion there’s nothing worse. People who are boring would be put in prison and there they would be forced to learn to be creative together with the other prisoners.

BRAVO: And where would your capital city be?
ROB: I would found my own city called ‘Shit City’. Some daunting name so that nobody would like to live there at all. It would be located on the Fiji Islands – a paradise for me only!

BRAVO: Which song would be your national anthem?
ROB: ‘Wannabe’ by Spice Girls.

BRAVO: Eh? Why this song?
ROB: I think it’s funny that all the stupid politicians would have to salutate to this song. A matching song for all the wannabe-politicians!

BRAVO: Who would be your Queen?
ROB: Mmh… Any woman who loves to run a country. But I would never force anyone to do it! (laughs)

BRAVO: What would you wish your commoners?
ROB: I think everyone should have the opportunity to accomplish what they want with all their heart.

Robsten Make Forbes’ “Hollywood’s Top Earning On-Screen Couples” List



Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
$2.5 billion
The Twilight series is centered around the relationship between human Bella and vampire Edward. The couple still has one more film coming (Breaking Dawn Part 2) to goose their earnings.

Ranking second behind Grint and Watson is reported real-life couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, the stars of the Twilight franchise. All of the Twilight films to date have hit theaters in the last five years, earning $2.5 billion at the global box office. While the Harry Potter series is mostly about Potter’s journey, the Twilight franchise is centered on Stewart and Pattinson’s characters, the human Bella and the vampire Edward. In the most recent movie they got married, with disastrous results. They’ll have a chance to boost their earnings even more when the second part of the last book, Breaking Dawn, is released this coming November.

New/Old Pic of Robert With Ayanna Berkshire From ‘Twilight’ + Cute Story Meeting His Parents

PP: Your scene in the movie did not involve Robert Pattinson, but did you see him on set at all during the filming of the movie? Were you familiar with him before this movie? 

AB: I was aware of Robert from Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire and from a small role in Vanity Fair. I met him on set at lunch one day, because he was shooting another scene right after us and we all ended up having lunch together. He was funny, charming and incredibly friendly, really very normal, which comes as no surprise.

Inside story: Two days after that lunch I was back to work at my part time job, I worked in an eyeglass shop in Portland named Visage Eyewear. While I was there, an absolutely adorable British couple came in. We INSTANTLY bonded and I ended up talking with them for close to two hours. About an hour in, I finally asked what brought them to Portland and they told me that they were visiting their son, who was working in town. I asked them what he did for work and they told me he was an actor! “REALLY”, I said. (I get really excited for fellow actors, especially since I know every last one in town), “I’m an actor too!! What’s his name? Is he working on anything at the moment?” That’s when they both got a little quiet, “Oh, he’s working on a movie here…” I took a look at both of them again, took in their accents and it suddenly dawned on me. “Is your son Rob?” I asked. They both got this wide-eyed look on their face like they weren’t sure if they should say yes or no. “I JUST worked with him two days ago!” I said, “I loved him, what a great guy!” They both seemed completely relieved that they could tell their secret without having to say anything. After that, we had an even better time and if I remember correctly, they even brought me ice cream from the ice cream shop across the street. For the record, Robert Pattinson has awesome parents!

During the Wrap party for Twilight, a friend of mine (he played one of the frat boys), Rob and I were all standing around talking. I wanted to do an impromptu photo shoot, where either I was about to bite Rob, or vice versa… it ended in a total fail as neither one of us knew who was supposed to bite who. I hope I’ll be forgiven for sharing this less than flattering pic.*

PP: Did you have any idea, being in the first of a five movie series, that Twilight would become so big and that Robert Pattinson would go on to become as famous as he did?

AB: I think that the success of the movies came as a surprise to everyone. I’d had an idea that they were going to be huge just because EVERYONE seemed to be reading the books!

I think that anyone who played the role of Edward was going to experience mega fandom. Edward, of all the characters was the most untouchable, the most mysterious and the sexiest. To watch that type of character brought to real life by an actor (especially an actor like Robert who is fun, approachable and handsome, but who was still sort of a mystery himself), it becomes this instant gratification. The character was written with such passion that as a reader, you want that passion for yourself. It also didn’t hurt that Robert was coming from Harry Potter and had a built in audience who were already excited to see him in something new.
