According to @SarahMOnline, Rob was seen celebrating Zac Efron’s birthday last night at Chateau Marmont. Not sure if it’s true or not, so we’ll just say it’s a rumored sighting since no pictures were taken to prove it and there were no other sightings by other people.
Omg just saw Kristen Stewart at the gas station!!!! Couldn't get a clear photo but she's so pretty! @ayee_its_juss_mayah @chickenlittle_lopez

Where did you get the inspiration for the video?
Working closely with the team of Dior. Hundred lifetimes in a day and the words of James Dean: “Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you were to die today.” The result is a character who goes through emotions and different places. Then, with the cinematographer André Chemetoff and production designer Jean -Michel Bertin, we looked for the best visual grammar to tell this story fragmented.
How would you describe the Dior Homme man?
The man we want to represent is someone light, at ease in any situation. It could be on a deserted beach, in a luxury hotel or in an empty house in which he has just moved: he would always be himself. We wanted to move away from the stereotype of the successful, rich and arrogant, and that is why we have added details such as the eighties car that leads to a certain point. The woman is another great way to characterize a man: in the video she is a simple girl, who doesn’t dress in a showy way.
Tell us story from the set?
We shot in Brooklyn, Rockaway Beach, immediately after the hurricane. Looking at the beach scene, you can note their signs, for example, the very high sand or cabins destroyed , which gave a strange, unexpected look in a video for a luxury perfume. Oh, and we also ended up in the sea with the car … It took two boats and a tractor to bring it to the dry sand!
The main difficulty?
Probably the fact of having to film in so many places at once. We had to run all over New York with Rob, who is a big star in Hollywood, dodging paparazzi and all the rest, to not reveal the images of the campaign before the release. Also, before meeting Rob, I had no idea how it would go because we had hectic, very active schedule and sometimes actors don’t like working under pressure. But he was great, he gave more than he asked, was with me one hundred percent. In addition, during the shoot, we had great fun.
What is your favorite scene
I really like the part on the beach, the first scene we shot. During the first shot there’s something always interesting happening at that moment you’ll know if what you had in mind will work or not. It was very nice to hear that it will work.
How was working with Rob?
Rob is extremely curious, he is leaving the phase of the Twilight “poster boy” to play more mature roles. He’s already making interesting and choices. Speaking as a director, I can say that he’s a very easy to work with, an actor able to give so much.
UPDATE: According to Pitchfork, Death Grips has confirmed that the letter is fake. In addition to this confirmation, Actor Colin Hanks told Consequence of Sound that talks of him making a movie with Death Grips is untrue. What does this mean? The letter below is most likely fake and that this was, as we thought before, a social experiment.
Having been photographed with Zach Hill and MC Ride from Death Grips at Beyonce’s concert earlier this year (above) a press release today from Death Grips revealed that Rob will be staring in their short film Misoneism, which deals with the issue of underground prostitution. A two minute trailer for Misoneism will be released soon on Tumblr. The film is expected be released in Spring 2014 with a one time only screening at Sacramento’s Historic Guild Theater.
This is a message from DEATH GRIPS.
We have recently founded a record label, created via a very unique relationship with Harvest/Capitol, to be distributed byCaroline. On here, we anticipate our creative endeavours being achieved with unaltered possibilities. Not only does it function as a medium to distribute any upcoming music we create, but it will also be used as a platform to showcase other forms of art. Stefan Burnett, our vocalist, will soon be releasing a very limited number of hardback books for his visual artwork, with the help ofPictureBox. Not only that, but Zach Hill is currently wrapping up a short film he directed with an OST by DEATH GRIPS. The film is entitled Misoneism, is shot entirely in monochrome film, and follows the exploits of a young man forced into the underground prostitution business in Brazil. Starring Robert Pattinson and Colin Hanks, the film hopes to shed light on the matter in a shocking and abrasive way. The film is slated for a Spring 2014 release with a one time only screening at Sacramento’s historicGuild Theater. Further details on Misoneism will be released in the coming weeks through our Tumblr (now wiped clean and specifically dedicated to Misoneism.) A 2 minute trailer is to be released on the aforementioned link very soon.
Birds, released on 21st of August, can now be officially announced as a cut from Misoneism’s OST. The track was received extremely well.
This message has been sent to exclusively 10 smaller websites to accentuate the minimal approach we are going to approach the promotion of Misoneism. The film was conceived with the ethos of Sacramento’s 70′s independent films, most of which were fairly low budget and gained, at best, modest popularity. In a sense, the promotion is a social experiment. We purposefully employed very high profile actors to star in an experimental, avant-garde film, promoted only on smaller indie music websites and publications for reasons that we will reveal in the upcoming press kit.
m0re to come.
- DEATH GRIPS
Note: There is a lot of speculation going on about this project. RPLife has chronicled the media frenzy surrounding this announcement and the back-and-forth that went on in determining where it was a legit project or simply just a social experiment. Only time will tell if this project is a “go”. As for now, we are keeping it up as a ‘RUMOR’.

With all the International press Rob did for Dior Homme, I feel like we are now starting to see repeats of interviews we’ve already posted about. Now, with that being said, there are some interviews, like this one, that included a few new questions with new quotes from Rob. Unfortunately, there weren’t any pictures we haven’t seen already. Without further ado, here’s something new …
Translation/Transcript of new questions:
Not a bad start. Lets continue.
The idea of reviving a classic perfume has very much caught my attention. Because the brands classic style has something appealing to men. Thats why when being together with Romain Gavras we dreamed of a sophisticated but also a little bit of a wild character. Doing what he wants to do, daring, a free spirited person. Not affected by fashion trends, going his own way this man definitely has an infinite energy.
During the campaign you worked together with Nan Goldin, a provocative photographer. How was working with her? Did she give you instruction?
A lively person! In between the shooting when everyone was in a hurry she would never change have her ‘no need to rush” attitude.
Nan definitely lives by her own rules but I can’t say that this is a directing attitude. One day when we shot on top of the roof it was very windy. Three people had to hold her but nothing discouraged her. We continued to do more dangerous things but we also enjoyed it very much. Nan is until today the only free spirited person that I have ever seen.
Who are the other inspirational directors?
It will always be Chris Cunningham. Jacques Audiard is another director with whom I would like to work together with for a long time. For young actors like me, he definitely is the best. Very understanding. When I saw Romain Duris’ performance in “The Beat That My Heart Skipped”, I thought strangely that he was very close to my own manly perception. Romain Duris’ character is struggling but is not holding back his feelings everywhere. He thinks being sensitive doesn’t mean being weak. He only learns how to listen. This film is a wonderful story about proving his maturity.
