Richard Phillips shares w/Vanity Fair the concept behind Rob's 'Most Wanted' painting


“I decided I would begin where Warhol and pop art left off...After holding a contest within my studio to find the best red carpet face from the constant river of images, a composite was made from the best of the best of Pattinson’s expressions. The colorful and detailed Louis Vuitton background was to suggest a fictitious brand endorsement context that was commensurate with his position as the most popular member of the group. The difficulty became not how to render his face so he could be seen, but how to paint his presence so he could be inescapably felt when standing in front of the painting. My painting of Robert Pattinson began to fulfill its intention of giving pause, to question our relationship to the constant appearance and simultaneous dismissal of our disembodied selves in relation to a system that generates a forced intimacy with commercially enforced exceptionalism.”

New/Old Rob interview during 'New Moon' promos in Paris



 What I saw outside (the hotel) is crazy! I've seen that for Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt...May be Leonardo Dicaprio. But it's really rare. What I want to know is how do you deal with all that. You are so young (23)..How do you keep calm and cool?
It's not easy. I always try to separate my personal and private lives. I remind myself all the time that the fans, the press..are all here for the character, not for me. It's a kinda "ego saving reflex". Actually, it's very nice, but when you're facing all these fans, you just don't know what to do to satisfy them.

Yeah, but don't actors do this job for that? To be loved and admired?
I guess yes. In some way. But with Twilight, something amazing happened. I've become some kind of celebrity, even though when I started out, I didn't think I was that interesting as a person. And so I just wanted to play deep characters that would enrich me, psychologically."

Then they talk about the similarities between being a vampire and being an actor. The way they both depend on others, and need others to go on. He asks Rob what he likes about vampires, and Rob says "The 'superhero' aspect. They're like semi-god, but, in the same time, they depend so much on very regular people. On what's deeply basic in ppl; their blood."

It's really funny to see you talk about vampires, because I just discovered this other movie (How to be) where you play a completely different character. I was wondering which part of you, as a person, is in this movie, or in the Twilight movie?
Not much. Actually I've never played a role where I can really be myself. As an actor, you think, with every role, that you'll be able to give the character sthg from yourself, your experience. But the more you try to do that, the more you realize, with every single scene, that it's coming out very differently from how you expected it, or how you intended it.

Charlie Bewley talks about Rob, Kristen & little Mackenzie at Sundance

 "I imagine if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had a kid it'd be like this grungy...awkward and shy kind of thing,"
jokes Charlie Bewley, who plays Demetri in the vampire movie franchise.

Kidding aside, Bewley called Mackenzie a "beautiful little girl...she's a little ball of energy that one," he said.

I caught up with Bewley yesterday at the Sundance Film Festival as he checked out the running shoes in Samsung Galaxy Tab Lift's Puma Lounge. He jetted to Utah from Baton Rouge, where they're filming Breaking Dawn, for the premiere of his upcoming flick Like Crazy.

Bewley insisted he still hadn't seen the Edward and Bella sex scene photo that was recently released by Summit Entertainment.

"It's the sex scene?" he said when asked what he thought of the picture. "Really? They're smashing around?! Shut the front door. I haven't seen it...but I'm definitely going to check it out."

Robert Pattinson as Jeff Buckley would be excellent casting


Since news broke on Sunday that producers met with Rob for the Jeff Buckley role, the media has been running away with it. Here's MTV's take:

"(...) Pattinson would make an excellent Buckley, as not only does he physically resemble the singer, but he also possesses the same kind of ethereal vibe that Buckley carried. His popularity was mainly rooted in his music, but he also had a mysterious quality that made him a fascinating character. Can Pattinson sing as well as Buckley? There's no evidence to suggest that he can. However, it seems like the man who breathed life into Edward Cullen can handle the moody, romantic vibe that Buckley gave off. Take a look at this performance of "Forget Her" (recorded during the Grace sessions but not released until 2004) and see if you can't picture Pattinson sliding into that role" (access here)

What do they think of Franco and those shortlisted as possibilities for the role:

"Franco has probably played too many iconic roles to play Buckley (he's created so many great fictional characters that it'd be hard to accept him as playing a real person) and James Marsden (of "X-Men" fame) doesn't have that same air of mystery. Leto would probably be a good choice, as he has the musical chops to go with his left-field approach to performances"
