Rob talks Dior to Teen Vogue!

Few male fragrances have managed to capture female attention quite like Dior Homme Eau for Men. Perhaps that’s because the scent—classically masculine according to perfume tradition—gives a couple nods to the ladies with notes like grapefruit and iris.

Or, perhaps more realistically, it has to do with its spokesman: The painfully handsome Mr. Robert Pattinson.

“The idea of revisiting a classic fragrance was very attractive,” says the star, who imagines the scent’s wearer to be “a free spirit who does whatever he wants, and is fearless about it.” Indeed, the fragrance’s film campaign, directed by Romain Gavras, depicts just that: Viewers can watch as he races a vintage car along the beach, runs on rooftops, kisses (Twilight style!) in an elevator, and more. These various scenes embody a guy who’s a lot less Edward Cullen…and a lot more James Dean.

For R.Patz, it’s fitting that the fragrance he’s fronting is all about rebellion. “When I was 12, I remember being on holiday in Portugal and watching teenagers going into bars,” he says. “I believed that splashing cologne would convince everyone I was an adult. I thought wearing perfume was the cool thing to do.” Reluctantly, he adds, “That…and hair gel.”

But, Rob acknowledges, it’s totally possible that the dude who wears this scent may be slightly outdone—by the ladies. In fact, he seems undeterred by the female fanbase the fragrance has garnered. “She’s a girl of her own mind,” he imagines, “refusing to smell ‘pretty’ or do what’s expected of her. And clearly someone who isn’t confused about her idea of femininity.”

Luckily, this free-spirited lady is a familiar figure in the actor’s life. “My mum’s quite a dominant personality,” he explains, “so I’ve always been very comfortable around girls.”

Somehow, we think the feeling might be mutual.

Details of Rob Filming Life Today

Check out this account of Rob and Dane DeHaan filming Life today in Toronto .. I especially love the part about Rob eating a Subway sandwich hahaha!

Filming took place today in the Downtown Core at a Building ridden with Bedbug problems in the past, with both external and internal shoots taking place for much of the afternoon.  As a torrential downpour of sloshy wet snow handicapped the City midday, the Shoot moved indoors where a Movie Premiere scene within the Film had commenced.

Appearing in the Scene is  Academy Award Winner Sir Ben Kingsley, who was reported as having flown into the City for the Film earlier this week, cast as Canadian-born Studio Executive Jack Warner. Spending much of his day in his Trailer, the mustached Thespian was guided along with a Handler under an umbrella, dressed warmly in a green Canada Goose Parka.  ”I’m afraid you will take my Photo and show it to your Friends on the Internet!”, said Kingsley when asked by Fans to pose for a Group Photo.  Despite declining to pose for a Photo, upon returning for a Touch-Up later in the day, he threw a quick wave to Fans.

Meanwhile DeHaan, who plays Dean in the ’50s-set LIFE, was enjoying the Olympics in his Trailer. He had an earlier wrap, seen heading home in a Plaid Jacket, Toque and Glasses.

The Film’s Star, Pattinson, was spotted smoking a cigarette in a hidden area of the Building he was filming at in the afternoon, later retiring to his Trailer for a six-hour-long break which saw him lunching on a Subway Sandwich, craving a large bag of Potato Chips in the evening brought to him by his Assistant.  The handsome 27-year-old British Actor who plays the Lead Role of Stock,  donned a Canada Goose Parka and was seen exiting quietly, his hood concealing his face. His Private Bodyguard Dean aided him along to his vehicle, narrowly avoiding a serious fall on the extremely slippery footing.  Fortunately he made it unscathed and fall-free to a late night of filming!

Anthony Breznican Mentions Interviewing Kristen w/ EW

Anthony Breznican interviewed Kristen during Adventureland promo for USAToday. He talked to EW about how they analyzed the way growing up has changed over the years, how it isn’t so private anymore.

As a journalist, you’ve interviewed a lot of creative people. Is there anything an interview subject has said to you about the creative process that stuck with you while you were writing?
Strangely enough, I had a cool interview with Kristen Stewart a few years ago when she was in a movie called Adventureland. It’s one of my favorite coming-of-age films, set at an amusement park in the late 1980s, and Brutal Youth begins in 1991. She would have been a baby then, but we talked a lot about the differences between growing up these days, and the kind of self-surveillance that goes on, with every aspect of your life monitored or shared, and growing up back then, which is the last time kids could truly lead secret lives. We didn’t talk about my book, but that conversation made me realize I was writing about a bygone era. There’s something magical about that, like an animal that has gone extinct and now seems mythological.
