How to explain the phenomenon of Rob Pattinson? One could focus on his looks (Byronic, smoldering, perfect), zeroing in on the cheekbones (razor-sharp, perfect), blue eyes (mysterious, a whole Facebook page dedicated to them, perfect), and that hair (tousled, lustrous, finger lickin’).

Another route is to try to make sense of his Twilight superfans, the squealing girls who camp out for up to a week in hopes of merely getting an autograph, or who ask for a bite on their already-scabby, bloodied necks. Some Twilighters even wonder if he’s really a vampire, as they obsess about his offscreen relationship with Kristen Stewart. (Here’s a thought: Being human, they may have slept together a few times but probably really are just good friends.)

But how about looking at “RPatz” with empathy—even pity—and advancing the theory that he’s a nice, ordinary, likable 24-year-old from a London suburb who accidentally fell into this teen idol heartthrob business? After all, it wasn’t his plan to be cast against great odds in an abstinent-vampire movie; in fact, around 2007, before Twilight cameras rolled, he was flirting with quitting acting altogether and making music instead. (Never mind.)

During a hiatus from shooting Breaking Dawn, the conclusion of the Twilight series, a world-weary-sounding Pattinson perked up as he discussed his post-Twilight career. In Water for Elephants, he plays a veterinary student who falls in love with a married circus performer (Reese Witherspoon), and this year he’ll be seen costarring with Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, and Kristin Scott Thomas in Bel Ami, based on the Guy de Maupassant novel about corrupt journalist Georges Duroy, who seduces and manipulates his way to the top.

ELLE: How great a novel is Bel Ami?
ROBERT PATTINSON:  Amazing. One of my favorites. The script was really good too; Duroy has kind of changed a little bit.
He’s so cynical in the book, but now he’s so convinced that he knows everything and that he’s been wronged, that he ends up being very earnest. He realizes that the whole world he lives in is based on a lie; it angers him so much that he basically wants to burn the whole thing down…and in trying to enjoy everything, he becomes what he hates most: a pompous little shit.

ELLE:  Was it fun playing a ladies’ man instead of a celibate?
RP: Completely. I thought it was funny as well—Twilight having quite a bit of a female audience—to play a guy who basically screws women out of money. I like the fact that you never hear of a movie where the bad guy stabs every single person in the back and then wins.

ELLE:  So you relished playing a sleazy journalist?
RP:  I like the section where he gets a job as a gossip writer and in a completely banal way just makes stuff up—uses the same story and changes the names. I think that still is very, very true.

ELLE:  It was once reported that you were pregnant.
RP: Yeah, a couple years ago. That was true, though.

ELLE: Any other odd encounters with the media recently?
RP:  A bunch of paparazzi were following me, and I thought the best way to deal with it was to stop my car in the middle of the street and say, “I’m not leaving, and I’m not going to speak to you anymore.” They got all pissed off because they can’t just keep taking the same picture. We were in Venice by the boardwalk, and they kept trying to get all these drug dealers to come up to the car. I was just like, Oh my God, this is insane.

ELLE:  Have you ever fantasized about doing something to destroy the “Twilight image” of you?
RP: You know, when the whole thing dries up and there’s hardly any paparazzi around—I don’t know, in 15 years or something—I like the idea of just one paparazzo coming out and trying to get a picture, and I just beat the shit out of him. I mean—out of nowhere—when my picture’s not even worth…and I’ve spent all my money, so you can’t sue me!

ELLE:  Is your idea of hell to end up at age 45 posing with Twilighters at a comic book convention?
RP:  I mean, that would be totally fine—if I didn’t have any responsibilities, if it didn’t affect my career anymore. I did a couple of those after Harry Potter, when I was totally unemployed. You can have so much fun. There are so many weirdos there.

ELLE:  Have you had many near-death experiences?
RP: Yes, loads. I am the worst driver in the world. Every time I get in a car, I call up my parents and say goodbye.

More casting for 'Cosmopolis'

kstewrobfans



According to Deadline: Jay Baruchel has joined Robert Pattinson in the David Cronenberg-directed Cosmopolis. Pattinson plays a financial wiz kid who puts his life in danger by betting his entire fortune against the yen on a tumultous day in the adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel. Baruchel plays the shy guy who founded the company, and who acts as the trader's conscience. Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric and Sarah Gadon also star. Baruchel just wrapped Goon, which he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg, and starred in and produced. He's repped by CAA and Thruline.

The "funny" guy (remember 'Knocked Up'?) has a resume, check it out on IMDb

Latest on 'Snow White'

kstewrobfans




 DeadlineNY: Sensing a possible opening with Hugh Jackman because The Wolverine lost its director and a plan to shoot in Japan turned precarious, Universal Pictures has offered Jackman the huntsman role in Snow White and the Huntsman. The Rupert Sanders-directed film has Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron ready to star. Also, I've heard Universal is in talks with Hossein Amini to come aboard and do some script work on a project slated to begin production mid-September. Whether Jackman accepts is unclear. Jackman would obviously have to be paid a premium to pump up the star power of a film that will  reach theaters after its rival, Relativity Media's The Brothers Grimm: Snow White.

Larry411 ( info from Prod Weekly):
STATUS: Mid-September 2011
LOCATION: London - Scotland - Germany
PRODUCER: Joe Roth - Palak Patel
WRITER: Evan Daugherty - Hossein Amini
DIRECTOR: Rupert Sanders
LP: Sam Mercer
CAST: Charlize Theron - Kristen Stewart
ROTH FILMS
FILMENGINE
UNIVERSAL PICTURES

A PG origin and re-imagining tale of "Snow White" from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Tonally in the vein of "Alice In Wonderland". Snow White(Stewart), is an incredible beautiful young woman with raven hair, fair skin, and ruby red lips. Snow White's beauty is ultimately its own curse because, when she becomes the fairest in the land, she becomes a threat to her step-mother Ravenna (Theron). Snow White loves Prince Charmant, a boy of the same age who she was separated from as a teen. Snow White has been forced to live under the hard rules of Ravenna where her only friends were the animals that would come to see her. Snow White's life is turned upside down when Ravenna discovers that Snow White is about to become the fairest. She's driven from the castle and Eric is sent to kill her. Eric is a huntsman who is haunted by the death of his wife, Sara. He was deeply in love and cannot silence the pain caused by her loss. He drinks heavily and spends his days hunting for the White Wolf that killed Sara. He is purely mercenary, taking the money Ravenna offers to bring the most beautiful maidens in the land to the castle. However, when Eric discovers that the White Wolf works for Ravenna, he escapes with Snow White to the Dark Forest and begins preparing to get his revenge. (Offer out to Hugh Jackman for Eric, The Huntsman. / Release date December 21, 2012.)

'25 Beauties (and Hotties) at 25'

 

ROBERT PATTINSON
While Twi-hards can't get enough of Pattinson – or his waxen face – the British star who's played vampire Edward Cullen since 2008 is done with the look of the undead. "I'm so sick of my own pallid, gray complexion," he's said. "Having that makeup put on every single day, as soon as you get it taken off, it's like, 'Oh, you do look normal. You look healthy now.'"  - People

 

'Beautiful at Every Age'

 

KRISTEN STEWART, 21
When you think Valley girl the Twilight star, who plays tortured loner Bella Swan, doesn't exactly come to mind. And you won't catch this California native slaving over the latest fashion and beauty trends. "I think it's ridiculous that you need to look a certain way to be conventionally pretty," she declares. - People


 The print issue will be available on April 13
