Now although this article (and source) is probably that legitimate, I do think that the probability of Rob & Kristen spending Boxing Day together on the Isle of Wight is very likely!
|Boxing Day 2009|
|New Year’s 2010|
According to Showbiz Spy, Robert and Kristen haven’t seen their families for AGES so they’re both going to go home for Christmas – Rob to London and KStew to LA.
However, seeing as they might implode if they’re apart too long Kristen will then be flying back over for Boxing Day when her and Rob will head off to one of their favourite places, the Isle of Wight.
A know-it-all told the site, “Rob and Kristen won’t be together on Christmas Day. They’re sad, but they are committed to their families and want to be with them over the festive period. They’ll be together after Boxing Day, when they’ll travel to the Isle of Wight for a small break.”
The 4th segment of the ‘Twilight’ – Saga is opening in theaters. B.Z. has met Robert Pattinson before the Berlin premiere.
Is it just a PR-gag or are Kristen Stewart (21) and Robert Pattinson (25) a dream couple, even privately? At his Berlin visit for the premiere of ‘Breaking Dawn’, the 4th part of the ‘Twilight’-vampire saga, Pattinson did not deny being with Kristen. Unfortunately she herself couldn’t come herself, because she’s currently shooting Snow White. Even if something, which the fans had waited long for, finally happens: The birth of their child. Privately however, Stewart and Pattinson are a long way from it, as he tells Markus Tschiedert in this interview.
Mr. Pattinson, you were in Berlin for the movie ‘Water for Elephants’ only in April. Doesn’t the city get boring for you?
Not at all! I love Berlin and I’ve also been on holidays here a few times. The first time was when I was 18, which has been a while. I was especially impressed with the eastern part of the city because there were galleries everywhere and bands played for free. I don’t know if it’s still like that now, but you could do a lot with little money back then in Berlin.
Nowadays you probably won’t be able to walk through the streets of “Berlin Mitte” and Prenzlauer Berg anymore without being recognized…
No, I haven’t had that experience yet. If you know whereto, and I’m certainly not going to spill that now, people will let you be. Especially in the eastern part they’re too cool to talk to me. [laughs]
Even if the final installment of the ‘Twilight’-saga is going to open in theaters next year, you’ve already wrapped. How hard was the farewell to you?
My last day of shooting was with Kristen in the Caribbean on the beach and in the sea, which was very pleasant. It was my first time ever to be in the Caribbean, so I treasure this memory.
Are you happy as well that everything is coming to an end?
Yes, kind of, because it took very long to shoot these films and I never imagined it would be this hard in the beginning. I mean, I sat in the make-up trailer for at least 2 hours before every shoot, had to put in those contacts, that my eyes never got used, to every time. As soon as I put them in I was in a bad mood, especially when we were on set up to 15 hours, 6 days a week.
Aren’t you afraid to be forever identified as a vampire?
I’m aware of the fact that ‘Twilight” is nowhere near finished. Even if I shoot other films, people will see me as Edward. I accepted that. Nevertheless, I’m grateful. These movies have changed my life completely. I was already known for my little role in ‘Harry Potter’, it’s nothing compared to Twilight though. I had to rearrange my whole life after the first movie because suddenly everything changed and people on the street recognized me and shouted my name.
What’s the craziest thing that has ever happened to you?
We were introduced at the Munich Olympiastadion for promo for the 2nd one and all of a sudden we stood in front of 20,000 fans that did nothing but scream. It felt like we were rock stars without even singing or playing something. We just stood on the stage and were screamed at. That was really bizarre.
In “Breaking Dawn” everything the fans have been waiting for finally happens: Bella and Edward finally have sex. How was it for you to shoot those scenes with your girlfriend?
Because all that stuff is already in the book the whole pressure really came from having to satisfy the reader’s expectations. Apart from that it was pretty easy for us, also because our director, Bill Condon, knew how to create a comfortable atmosphere on set. He was under a lot more pressure than we were.
But being as intimate in front of the camera as you’re usually only privately must’ve been weird…
Of course, because Bella and Edward are virgins and because of that we had to create those especially intensive emotions. It means a lot to the fans, that the two of them finally get closer to each other and we were aware of that responsibility. We of course, had to pay attention to how much we could show. Especially in America the display of violence is okay but when it’s about sex everyone’s protesting and the movie gets a higher rating and that’s really hard for the studio.
The essential question is if you can already sleep together before marriage or if you should wait until you’re married. What’s your view on that?
I think that depends on how you grew up. I know people that wouldn’t do anything they regret later on. Everyone has to know for themselves. Sex is such a weird thing because it’s connected to so many emotions. It’s something really personal and that should be respected.
The most intense scene was of course the one where your child is born. Would you want to be a witness of that in real life as well?
If it’s my own child that’s born. With someone elses not so much.
Do you have plans of starting your own family soon?
Right now there’s no plan but I do hope that that’s going to happen someday.
What was it about Robert Pattinson that made you think he was the right guy for the lead?
He’s the right age. He looks right. He looks good in a suit. He looks like he could be a young, tough, billionaire. And I’ve actually thought he was quite a good actor who was very underrated in a similar way to Keira Knightley, I think, when I was thinking of her for Dangerous Method. Both of them have had great financial success and are stars based on franchises, but of course to do that you have to have a kind of screen charisma, you have to have a presence, which you can’t buy or create; you either have it or you don’t. That doesn’t mean you’re necessarily a good actor, though. But you have at least that. I looked at all the stuff that he’s done, and I thought he’s a really good actor. And then I spoke to him, and thought not only that, but he’s a really smart actor. And he’s funny, and he’s very sweet. That’s when I tried to convince him to do the movie, which he was a little afraid of, just because I think he doesn’t know how good he is, basically. And I think now that he’s done the movie, he’s starting to understand how good he is. Because he’s terrific.
And was he a fan of your work?
He knew my work, yeah. What’s interesting, too, about Rob is that he’s very well educated in terms of movies and movie history and foreign films. On the set, he and Juliette Binoche were talking about the most obscure French films and stuff like that together. He really knows his stuff. And yet, as I say, he’s a completely down-to-earth, sweet guy. Lovely to work with. And very funny.
Are you going to go see Breaking Dawn?
I think I’ll wait for the screener.
You’re not going to go with the screaming fans?
Well, I don’t feel the need to line up, let’s put it that way. And I’m sure there’s going to be big lines for it. But, you know, basically I know what Rob can do having worked with him. I don’t have to see Twilight now. I certainly looked at the first two, though, when I was thinking about him.
Oh yeah, sure. And I watched Remember Me, and I watched Little Ashes. Which is maybe a movie you don’t know, but he plays a young Salvador Dalí in that movie with a Spanish accent. And I thought that was pretty interesting, very daring of him to do that, and it indicated to me that he was an interesting, serious actor.
And you were impressed with the work in the first two Twilights?
I was impressed with his screen presence and a lot of his stillness, and a lot of other things. But the other movies showed me he had range. He had the range that I wanted.
David Cronenberg, who received a career tribute just in time to promote “A Dangerous Method,” told The Playlist that he was skipping out on the rest of awards season so he could spend the time finishing “Cosmopolis.”
“This isn’t a criticism, but when you’re making movies and being creative, you’re not making movies to fit in awards season,” he said. “It’s a parallel universe, and sometimes those universes kind of intersect, but I’m going to run away and hide from all that. I’m going to Paris, and I won’t be in the awards, I’ll be happily in my new movie.”
Cronenberg said he’s finishing the sound mix in France because the film is financed as a Canada-France co-production. “The movie will be done sometime in January, but it won’t be released for about a year, this time next year,” he projected. “Robert Pattinson is brilliant in it.” No word whether or not Cronenberg means the film won’t be released theatrically or hit the festival circuit until next fall is unclear, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
