Rob Pattinson & David Cronenberg talk ‘Cosmopolis’ with the Detroit Free Press
Check out this new interview with Rob Pattinson and David Cronenberg with the Detroit Free Press where they talk about Cosmopolis!
Here’s an excerpt from the interview :
Is the 26-year-old actor tired of getting media food bribes? “Food bribes,” he repeats rather quizzically. ”Oh yeah, I got offered some Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal this morning. I don’t even know (why). I haven’t had Cinnamon Toast Crunch for about six years. I actually ate some french fries just before these interviews. I had a carbohydrate O.D.”
The pleasant British chap talking on the phone could be any hot young star promoting a movie. Except that he’s not just anyone. He’s RPattz, the hunk from the phenomenally successful “Twilight” films who’s making his first public forays since his long-rumored girlfriend and “Twilight” costar Kristen Stewart made their relationship official. With a public apology to him. After some photos surfaced of her dalliance with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director. Which caused an online/celebrity media frenzy approaching the level of the Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes split.
Awkward! Only Pattinson is handling it about as well as anyone could. He’s already made it clear on his TV appearances that he isn’t going to discuss such personal matters.
During this interview, he politely deflects a question about the comparisons between the movie’s strange world and the weird celebrity-driven culture that surrounds him.”I don’t know if our culture is celebrity-driven at all,” he says. ”I think it just drives itself.”
He sounds quite levelheaded and likable as he talks about “Cosmopolis,” his new movie opening Friday in metro Detroit. The unusual film is loaded with metaphors and big statements on capitalism, technology, wealth, fear, paranoia, ambition and emotional isolation. But its leading man seems refreshingly uncomplicated.
“It’s a guy who’s having a strange day,” he says with a laugh in what could be the understatement of the month.
