Rob Pattinson on music, sex scenes and fashion with GQ UK
British GQ recently did a Q&A with Robert Pattinson where they talked music, sex scenes and fashion. Check it out!!
Your character has two lifts in his huge apartment, one of which is soundtracked by hip-hop. Which rapper would you have in your lift?
Robert Pattinson: Definitely Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The biopic looks amazing! That guy Michael K Williams as well – I was obsessed with The Wire for ages. The guy who is directing – Joaquín Baca-Asay, who is James Gray’s director of photography – is amazing. All his movies look incredible.
How did you feel when Tinie Tempah shouted you out on Chase & Status’ “Hitz”?
What? [delighted, bewildered] I haven’t heard it. I keep hearing everyone talking about him but for some reason I never really got into British rap. I don’t know why.
The line is “Like Rob Pattinson I make a lot of n****s jealous”
Wow. That’s really cool, actually. That’s amazing. I didn’t realise I had that relevance [laughs]. I wonder what made him single me out?
But she did ask about your worst haircut…
I did this movie about Salvador Dali a few years ago and had hair extensions and a little bob. That was incredibly bizarre. The extensions were temporary as well. I was trying to swim to somehow get in shape two days before we started shooting in this apartment complex in Barcelona. There were all these children everywhere… and I was this weird, pasty, hungover person with a girl’s black bob, swimming in the pool with huge clumps of hair falling out. I had my whole body totally waxed as well because Dali didn’t haven’t any body hair. It was the most terrifying thing – this is terrible, but I saw the potential cannibal guy [Luka Magnotta] in the Sun today and I looked a bit like him.
Are sex scenes getting easier?
It’s always a big thing. Juliette Binoche is one of my favourite actresses and within five minutes of meeting her on this we were pretending to have sex. Which wasn’t in the script. With both sex scenes we were supposed to have finished sex before we did the scene. Both times David was just like, “Yeah, just have sex.” That was a little awkward. I thought that Patricia McKenzie, who I did the other sex scene with, despised me up until that day on the set. We hadn’t said a single word to each other apart from when I asked, “Where are you from?” and she literally looked me up and down. I was like, “I’m not trying to do anything – I don’t have any idea!” Then on day of the sex scene she was like, “Hey how’s it going?” I don’t know what kind of preparation that was for this scene… but it definitely did something.
What TV do you never miss?
In America there is a channel called TruTV which is just reruns of Cops and World’s Dumbest Criminals. I could watch that the entire day. Someone told me – I don’t know if it’s true – that David Simon watched tonnes of Cops to get the dialogue for The Wire. I was like, “I knew it…”
