GQ Interview

14 Jun


Within moments of meeting Robert Pattinson, learns a valuable lesson: you simply can’t compete with Twilight fans. Having previously expressed his admiration for Martin Amis in an interview, it was decided we should present everyone’s favourite server-crashing undead heartthrob with a copy of the new Amis novel Lionel Asbo. Sadly one literary-minded Edward Cullen devotee has trumped our gift. “I got given a first-edition signed copy of Money by a Twilight fan in Germany yesterday,” reveals Pattinson. “She was trying to tell me that she found it in Massachusetts while we were surrounded by all these people screaming.”

Pattinson stars in David Cronenberg’s striking and strange new film Cosmopolis, out this week, which sees him as an otherworldly billionaire sating his carnal, financial and intellectual desires riding through town in the back of a limousine in search of a haircut. After some preliminaries (when presented with the latest edition of GQ he cries out “Andrew’s wearing my suit!”), he talks about his hip-hop moment of glory, the worst haircut he’s ever had and what he’s learned from working with Frida Giannini at Gucci…

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?

We asked our Twitter followers to pose questions for you. One account “Robearhottinson” asked 48 alone…
Not your typical GQ reader, I’d guess…

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…”

What has working with Frida and her team at Gucci taught you about tailoring?
That’s funny, I’ve never had her singled out before – it’s like it’s a secret! She taught me one thing – you should definitely have good contacts at Gucci. They’re absolutely amazing. The amount of times I’ve been stuck in some random city and have called her up and had things brought in at absolutely the last minute – it’s crazy. But also all this stuff is custom-made. You can do quite crazy things [with colour] if you have incredibly classic, really well-made suits. I guess I’ve been quite boring for a while. I used to be more interesting with them. Now I always just request things two days before: “Can you send 25 suits?” I don’t even know what I want to wear!

What’s the strangest gift you’ve got from a fan?
It’s funny: there are certain things that get picked up on really quickly. I quit smoking the other day and didn’t even really realise that I’d said anything about it. I’ve been chewing these f***ing toothpicks all the time. Someone noticed in Cannes and literally the next day in Lisbon, then in Paris and in Berlin there were about 20 people on the red carpet giving me huge amounts of toothpicks. Thousands of them. I don’t even remember saying it in an interview but I must have said it somewhere. That was kind of strange.

You are one of four individuals who consistently dominate internet discussion. Out of your rivals – Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga – who are you most fond of?
I really like Nicki Minaj. I think she’s great. My favourite song? She’s amazing in “Monster” with Kanye West. It’s annoying that I’m part of this internet thing though – they all have Twitters and an online presence. How did I get part of this group? I didn’t do anything. I’m trying to avoid it!

      Mmm, so he didn’t say anything about giving up smoking, (or so he claims), and yet everyone knows about it. And everyone also noticed the toothpicks. Sure Bob, we all believe you don’t remember talking about stuff! You are so transparent, you should be made of glass! 🙄

      • Diana June 14, 2012 at 12:56 pm #

        I honestly don’t know when he mentioned quitting smoking, but maybe it was when he was whacked out of his mind a few weeks ago. That was at a premiere right, or a photo call thing? Of course, with all the lies he tells, and all the bs ramblinbg, i wouldn’t be surprised if he’d forgotten he said it.

        I am with ? on that whole internet thing. I believe he knows damn well what he’s doing, and amazingly, can go unnoticed any time he wants.

  2. alexisis June 14, 2012 at 12:28 pm #

    He’s trying !,very trying !!

  3. Lena June 14, 2012 at 12:29 pm #

    At this point it’s almost impossible to not notice the toothpicks. Especially when the camera is on somebody else and you can still hear him chewing on them. I wonder if people around him aren’t getting annoyed by the sound and visual. lol

  4. ? June 14, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

    my favorite quote from above…

    “How did I get part of this group? I didn’t do anything. I’m trying to avoid it!”

    sure booby.. that’s why you keep running your mouth and playing showmance… and you’ve already shown that you don’t promote all of your movies, for example Bel Ami, so why promote any??…. just go crawl under your rock and continue building your house out of toothpicks..and become invisible when you want.. which only goes to show that when people find you, its because you want them to…
    you’re an idiot and a player…. you and your team will just keep plodding along.. oh and i thought germany ‘hated’ you per your other printed article.. good grief…
    oh well, more sh*t.. nothing new..

  5. Lena June 14, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

    My favorite part. Only Boob… 😆

    That glass needs to be double glazed Steph.

  7. Ali June 14, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    He probably doesn’t remember saying he quit smoking cause he was drunk and/or drugged up. I do give him 1/2 a brownie point for quitting on smoking, my grandfather was a smoker and died of lung cancer so when I hear someone quits it makes me happy. Now, if he could quit the alcohol and drugs……..

    • kell June 14, 2012 at 2:19 pm #

      Agreeee! 1/2 brownie point!…lol my grandpa quit smoking yrs ago…but my uncles got lung cancer…one caught it too late and passed a couple yrs ago…the other is still battling it!…so yep def agree…makes me happy when i hear someone is quitting!

  8. Deb (seattlechik) June 14, 2012 at 1:34 pm #

    I give him a point for quitting, I’m an ex-smoker so I know how hard it is.

    But really — calling up Gucci & saying send me 25 outfits in 2 days? GTFO. That’s the kind of behavior I’d expect from spew. Guess all her good manners are rubbing off on Bob.

    • ? June 14, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

      Oh so humble and grounded.. Don’t you think? 😆

      • Rachel June 14, 2012 at 3:40 pm #

        Just this

    • dm291 June 14, 2012 at 10:51 pm #

      definitely hard to quit. I tried twice then succeeded when I had a broken jaw – can’t really inhale or cough up then! So I give him credit for quitting. Hope he succeeds. Now if he could just get rid of the cancerous c**t

  9. click June 14, 2012 at 1:51 pm #

    I see he is still trying so hard to be cool by namedropping all these musicians and directors’ names.

    Haha yeaaa most twitter accounts are from sheep who have created twitters and sick sites like Robstenation thanks to the Fuckery caused by you and spew….so give yourself a big pat on the back your not avoiding it you created it!.Ohhh and to the sheep…it came right from his Mouth, He HATES that kiss him and spews ass like they are Greek Gods

    The fiercely private actress – who has reportedly been dating Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson for three years but has never confirmed the relationship publicly – is surprisingly unaffected by living in the spotlight.

    ”A lot of people make movies to become famous and rich and it sounds totally trite but I do it because I love it,” she says. ”Right now, the most interesting thing about me is the fact that I’ve done Snow White and it’s coming out next week. ”Things get so muddled and unreasonable when you start becoming a commodity, so I’d just rather not do that.”

  12. movinon1 June 14, 2012 at 4:08 pm #

    Good Grief!!! Where to begin….hmmmm. My better judgement says walk away and just leave it…..but……I can’t wrap my brain around the constant lying that comes out of Bobs mouth, and that is my #1 peeve, people who lie….hate it!!! At times I’m speechless. Such a pretentious prick that has hide that side of him from the public for a few yrs. But boy are we getting slammed now!!! Gee if that mellon head of his gets any bigger, he’ll need a wagon to carry it around in.

    He knows damn well that there’s twitter and tumblr accounts of his every movement out there. Bob picks up a phone and has 20 suits sent his way. Sounds like Diva behavior to me.

    Is there no one out there that can’t take Bob’s ego down a few pegs…..

    And no he did not have his “whole body” waxed and if you seen the movie you’ll understand.

    • Ali June 14, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

      I couldn’t agree more!! I was actually thinking of rewarching LA just to make sure I didn’t see things. I guess he forgot about that 😆

  13. Nonnie June 14, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    A Fan with her arm around Rob’s Neck giving him a Kiss on the cheek and bodyguard Dean Trying to pull her off him, and he is smiling too. How dare he look happy ! doesn’t he know he is only allowed to be kissed like that by Spew!

    • kell June 14, 2012 at 5:48 pm #

      lol ooooo that probably means that some PR shit is coming out soon starring tweedle dumb and tweedle dee…just to clear up that their still epically in love …lmao

      • Nonnie June 14, 2012 at 6:40 pm #

        LMAO. Spew will make an announcement just like she did at the kids choice awards when she told everyone how much she loved Katy Perry’s Armour after all the “Rob Texting Katy Perry” rumors came out.

    • OnTheFence June 14, 2012 at 9:09 pm #

      I would bet $ on it that she whispered some kind of offer of a sexual favor that she would knock his socks off with! Look at this face!! Yep!!! ;p

    • Tiny Wang will have no wang left when the sheep are done with him... June 15, 2012 at 12:18 am #

      Ohhhh, he’s got some ‘splainin’ to do… the sheep will be out for blood.

  14. Lena June 14, 2012 at 8:35 pm #

    I don’t think Bob plans to parade himself around for a while. It looks like his bodyguard took another job. See ya in November Booby!

    • kell June 14, 2012 at 9:11 pm #

      Hahah awww…..feel like Dean deserves a vacation from Rob and his shit lol..Jen and Justin are prolly muchhhhh easier to handle…wonder how many people he is bodyguard to?….and im almost surprised since R is done with Toronto that theres been no sightings of him and his leech….or is she in Australia already?

    • Lisa June 14, 2012 at 10:07 pm #

      Doesn’t anyone find it funny that Dean is following another couple that “likes” the PR hehehehe

    Remember, Dean also was Tom Cruise’s bodyguard. Just sayin. Anyway, that pic of Rob up above, WOW…..he is really really hot. I think he’d be the perfect 50 shades. Too bad he won’t be doing it.

    • Lisa June 14, 2012 at 10:33 pm #

      OMG please do not curse us he would make a horrible Fifty however IAN S would dominate it………………..

      • Acer June 15, 2012 at 1:06 am #

        @Lisa: yeah, Ian could play 50.

    • Acer June 15, 2012 at 1:05 am #

      @lowana: I agree that r looks hot in the pic. As a matter of fact, he always looks masculine, confident, and sexy as “edward” way more than he does in real life

      …..unlike Fassy **shift legs around in chair, arch back and sigh** and other actors who are manly/masculine on & off screen.

      I’m sorry lowana but I have to disagree about r & 50 shades. He just doesn’t have the boldness, confidence or dark sexual appeal as the character in the book. “Christian” has edge, swag, boldness, and a dark smoky aura about him. Whereas r looks fragile, unsure, hesitant, and soft-bodied on camera and off. Whoever plays the 50 role cannot have 1 ounce of femininity or gayness in them….therefore r is TOTALLY excluded.

      For 50 casting, Christian would have to be played by an unknown -or- perhaps a possible option might be Chris Evans — he can play both a freak and a clean-cut guy. I could see Luca Argentero as Jose. Who could be cast as Ana is tougher to decide.

      • Lisa June 15, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

        I agree Acer……….

  17. Lisa June 14, 2012 at 10:32 pm #

    Well he seems to play blankness very well and 4 years of practice probably helped 🙂

    Robert Pattinson plays Eric Packer, the twentysomething multibillionaire, a Renaissance prince of 21st-century finance, his face set in an immobile mask of supercool unshockability, and in any case sometimes partly hidden behind dark glasses. It is a controlled and directed performance, and Pattinson never does anything wrong but, exasperatingly, nothing particularly right, either – though this is a function of the way his character is conceived.

        You’re right, Click. Both the sheep and the nonnies only ever see and hear what they want. They all have selective senses when it comes to Bob and Butch. 🙄

        Rache, I’m loving the fact that the UK newspapers aren’t rolling over and giving him grat reviews. And they were the same with Butch for SWATH. Let’s hope they continue when OTR is released.

      • Lisa June 15, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

  20. goodfangonebad June 15, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    I’d go with the unknown actors!!! LOL! I know some of you ladies like 50 shades but I hate any twilight related, except Anna Kendrick & Nikki Reed….so I don’t want to see Chris Evans in a movie based on twilight fanfic. & considering the hype around 50 shades don’t think he’d interested to play the lead character either….

    • goodfangonebad June 15, 2012 at 11:40 am #

      *he’d be interested* and ooh this is meant to be a reply to Acer’s comment about 50 shades… I’m sorry….LOL!

    • Acer June 15, 2012 at 5:07 pm #

      @goodfangonebad: You know when I read 50 shades, even though I knew it was supposed to be some kind of Twit fanfic, I didn’t see it that way. The characters dont’ fit the stewpid Twit couple at all.

      As a matter of fact, I think that if movie creators were smart, they’d steer clear of that whole stewpid Twit theme and make this into an independent story introducing new characters that have no connection to Twit. So in that case, Evans or anyone else could do it. But if the studios decided to make it into Twit afterbirth nightmare, then NO.

      • goodfangonebad June 16, 2012 at 6:10 am #

        IDK Acer…. I find it difficult to imagine how the 50 shades promotion will be free from Twilight stuff. Just try to wiki 50 shades….it’s one of the example. To be honest, I’m not a reader of fan fiction, but I’ve read a review of 50 shades & apparently it’s not appealing story either. It’s not about the sexuality stuff in it but more about the nonsense in the story….lol

    I found this booby quote just too funny

    “flag: [ww] [ff] [troll-dar]
    He turned 26 last month and he can feel it, the change, something lost, something gained. ‘I’m quite sensitive to people,’ he says. ‘You pick up on moods quicker, I think. I’m also really good at sensing if someone is around. It’s weird, it’s like a sixth sense. I always know if someone’s taking a picture as well.’
    Yes Rob, we know that you sense if paps are around. It was quite obvious, on the balcony in Cannes.

    [see offsite link on]

    by: Anonymous reply 88 06/15/2012 @ 11:03AM”

    Yeah, he senses everyone until he doesn’t.. Remember the cell phone story when he thought he knew but didn’t… Oh booby, just shut up.. The inconsistencies are just out of control…that’s just 1 example..

    It’s interesting that Michael Fassbender just gave an interview where he says the opposite. Hates LA, loves London.

    “I’ve met some cool people out there who say I haven’t found the right L.A., but I just prefer here. I think L.A. makes you soft – people never get anything done. It’s a city where people give out their business cards. I think London has a sense of humour. I like the parks, I like the mentality here. I like walking. I like the immediacy of the city.”

    Fassbender FTW.

    by: Anonymous reply 125 06/15/2012 @ 03:25PM

    and I think he has hit the nail on the head. Hollywood has made Mr Stewart soft.

    • Acer June 15, 2012 at 5:16 pm #

      @Rachel: I saw this interview too. Maaaaannn, Fassy is so H.O.T. and intelligent…which makes him even hotter. I admire him for staying away from the LA sell-out, wanna-be scene. London is definitely better.

      I agree. LA has turned r into a HW ho. He’s been turnin’ tricks for scummit, who knows who’s next. When he left UK he was already thin-skinned, insecure and naive about entertainment biz. Therefore, LA was the WORSE place he could’ve gone because the HW industry eats people like that for lunch–HW prostitutes actors & actresses for their money-making machines. And that’s what happened to r. k on the other hand revels in being a HW ho –she thinks its ‘so cool.’ And a true ho @ heart would think that.

      • quiche June 19, 2012 at 12:18 am #

        I remember a snippet from an interview a few months ago where Rob said he hated LA and the people at first, but that he got “used” to it, and he now enjoys it.

      • Lisa June 15, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

        He is because he did not stay true to himself like Fassbender. So when we say “your movies aren’t very good” he should not get offended Mr. Softy hehehehe

    • Lisa June 15, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

      I think Bear is a long lost memory 😥 Que pictures of Mr. Softy walking him in the park!

      • Lena June 15, 2012 at 5:19 pm #

        I think the dog still lives with him. Bob had been pretty much almost unnoticed for months this winter/spring. He’s hardly spotted in the streets, let alone his dog. I think he likes LA because he can disappear there and can live near the ocean. At least that’s what he said. lol So many celebs live there the paparazzi have no reason to follow a guy like him. He dresses like a hobo.

  27. alexisis June 15, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

    We could look at it this way,his loss is our gain.

    Q: Do you not think that you now have the pulling power to get a movie made?

    A: Not really. I guess I have been put in the category of potentially getting Twilight fans into a movie but I don’t know if that’s even guaranteed. I’m just lucky with this Cronenberg film, as it’s the sort of thing I would have auditioned for even now, I would have auditioned as many times as they wanted in order to get it. I’m just trying not to do stuff that’s bad. Hopefully people will start to see that I’m making interesting choices and then it’s a legit career. I don’t want to have a career that’s just an illusion. I was scared that I would never be asked to be in anything interesting, that my life would pass by and someone, someday would ask me, ‘So apart from Twilight, what did you do?’

    • ? June 15, 2012 at 5:18 pm #

      oh yeah.. he or his team definitely reads this blog.. and booby.. you are correct.. you should be scared.. but don’t worry.. that badass bella will protect you.. from all of the nasty haters.. 😆
      reality bites.. ya know…

      but on another note.. just want to point out that booby seems to have left canada without anyone noticing and arrived somewhere without anyone photographing him and is now hanging out in places with no one noticing.. hmmmm… told ya.. those pap shots are needles in the haystack unless of course the needle calls and tells you EXACTLY where and when they are located…
      so glad booby helps us out on proving that one… 😆

      hope you are having a great drunken time wherever you are booby and that k is taking care of all of your wants, desires and needs in your new country known as California.. b/c she’s back on the promo road soon.. who knows.. you might just follow along for more nonprivate pr moments just for your special flock of fans..

      after all… that’s all you got at this point and you brought in all on yourself.. b/c if you were serious.. you would act in as part of your public persona and quite all the stupid games with ribbons, toothpicks, etc.. those are juvenille.. and certainly not the signs of a person serious about his craft…unless of course that craft is famewhoring to the max…

    • kell June 15, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

      Hahahah i agree! someone from his team or even he himself reads this site 🙂 hahaha….If he wants to be taken seriously…right now…he needs to stop with the fuckery with Stewpid…get away from her, stop drinking…well at least as much as his alcoholic self has been,,,,stop looking like a damn hobo….annnnd smile 😀 hahaha…well idk that last one is just a joke..the dude doesn’t smile…or genuinely smile too much…butttt that could be due to Stewpid also…he genuinely looked happy before her…and ever since before the last twi film came out he looks dead? lmao…like he is forced to be around Stewpid…even some of her airport pics ..she doesnt look like she wants to be there…but thats her usual! ……..hahah yesss im still waiting for the Bear pics! they have gotttttt to be coming soon! i mean isnt the Teen Choice Award shit around soon?… I know a bit of the cast got nominated there! Just wait for some pics!

      • Lena June 15, 2012 at 6:06 pm #

        Do you think Bob considers himself to be an alcoholic or not?

      • kell June 15, 2012 at 6:51 pm #

        Hmm….I would say he doesn’t consider himself an alcoholic but to me he seems like he is…what do you think? do you feel like he is?

      • Lena June 15, 2012 at 8:22 pm #

        He clearly likes to drink and seems to get wasted quite often but I don’t know if he’s addicted to it. There are pics of him leaving pubs or after parties looking drunk but he never had public affairs like Jonathan Rhys Meyers who’s addicted to alcohol. My guess is his bigger problem could be drugs. I think they are easier to hide and don’t interfere with the work that much. Well, at the beginning.

        Sometimes his pupils are dilated or he’s fidgety but lately he seems to have a problem to express his thoughts properly. Drug addicts often ramble and their stories are inconsistent because their perception is altered. Also, I know how traveling can be exhausting. The constant waiting, different time zones, the change of atmospheric pressure etc. I have enough after a short flight. I can’t imagine going from one city to another, speaking to tons of journalists while being under the pressure to succeed. On the top of it he gets drunk and stays up until the early morning. Yet, he can perfectly function the next day and another day looking all chipper. Isn’t it suspicious? How does he function under such pressure? Half of the people expect him to be perfect while the other half wants to see him fail.

        Most people of his age get stressed about their first serious jobs. Although their failures aren’t publically scrutinized, lots of them have to seek psychological help. Imagine you’d have to be stressed about being appealing and interesting enough to earn millions because that’s what people around you expect. He needs to deal with it somehow. And we all know how people in a similar position dealt with it in the past. Not many people in showbiz that created such hysteria around their persona as Bob left intact or even alive.

      • kell June 15, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

        Very true….didn’t think of the possibility of drug use also being a thing. I agree, couldnt imagine being flown around non stop and barely having enough time to think really, Maybe it is drugs to help him get a little up beat and focused…but even in interviews lately he seems to space out? Is that drug use also? The cosmo press with Cronenberg seems like it was full of him spacing out or being a million miles away. Whatever it is I think he needs rehab or to get away from HW for a while…its sucking the life outta him. Could that also be why he seems so down and depressed …like some of the airport pics?…i mean some he smiling but more often then not he looks depressed.and its not a genuine smile like it use to be its forced…definitely get where your coming from on this though! definitely making me think more! lol

      • Lena June 16, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

        Yeah, there are drugs that make you really spaced out and distant. It can be anything from sleeping pills and painkillers to anti-anxiety drugs. All highly abused and prescribed by Drs Happy Pills in HW.

        There’s a reason why so many actors in HW abuse drugs. It’s pretty normal to be on the set 16 hours a day. An actor has only 8 free hours. It’s an easy math. You would have to literally fall asleep the minute you came home, sleep for six hours, then wake up early to work out. But try to make an exhausted body to sleep on demand when a stressed brain is going overdrive. On the top of it, you have to be highly functional the next day. That’s why so many actors take sleeping pills at night to pass out, stimulants in the morning to speed themselves up and pain killers later in the day to numb the aftereffects of all of it. It’s a vicious cycle when you need one drug to recover from the other drug.

        That’s the difference between recreational user and functional addict. A recreational user goes to a party and snorts a line to get high. A functional addict needs high doses of drugs just to function like a normal person. He doesn’t have to look high all the time but you notice some common symptoms. Dilated or constricted pupils, bloated face, runny nose, fluctuating weight, looking depressed, lost and spaced out , slurred speech, struggle to express thoughts, short them memory loss that causes addicts to contradict themselves, lie and eventually not remember anything of it etc.

      • kell June 16, 2012 at 6:36 pm #

        Woahhh! Didnt know all that ….never really been around anyone that uses or used drugs more than recreationally! def thank u for telling me more about it! I can see what you mean though now thru all that…the weight loss, distant/spaced out, depressed….definitely dependent on something!

  29. alexisis June 15, 2012 at 5:07 pm #

    More likely to see him sat outside a pub with Bear under the table.

  30. Acer June 15, 2012 at 5:17 pm #

    @Rachel: I saw this interview too. Maaaaannn, Fassy is so H.O.T. and intelligent…which makes him even hotter. I admire him for staying away from the LA sell-out, wanna-be scene. London is definitely better.

    I agree. LA has turned r into a HW ho. He’s been turnin’ tricks for scummit, who knows who’s next. When he left UK he was already thin-skinned, insecure and naive about entertainment biz. Therefore, LA was the WORSE place he could’ve gone because the HW industry eats people like that for lunch–HW prostitutes actors & actresses for their money-making machines. And that’s what happened to r. k on the other hand revels in being a HW ho –she thinks its ‘so cool.’ And a true ho @ heart would think that.

    • Lisa June 15, 2012 at 7:41 pm #

      You know that is so true, look at the real A list stars that are serious about their career and private life…..One big one that comes to mind is Johnny Depp he lived in France away from the paps and his career is top of the line. Brangelina are almost always out of the country. And now Michael Fassbender. There are many more but these ppl do not use the rag mags to get their fame or their current relay to keep them in the business….they did it themselves with talent…..

      • movinon1 June 15, 2012 at 8:41 pm #

        Johnny Depp he’s a hottie imo. “Edward Scissorhands” I just wanted to take him home and make him feel better 😦

      • quiche June 19, 2012 at 12:23 am #

        Uh oh. Brangelina and Jennifer Aniston are the biggest HW ho offenders of their generation.

        I agree with you about Johnny Depp, although he’s a very shy person so pimping himself out isn’t his “thing” really.

  32. Shine June 15, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    Hiya..just back form watching Cosmo in London and sadly it’s a bore. BUT NOT ROB’S FAULT to be honest. In truth, I think Cronenbeg is desperate to be relevant but his film is pointless and I hate him for making me agree with the daily mail review (!) But Rob manages to do deliver a good performance in some parts – which considering the stupidity of the directing – is an achievement…now I understand why every promo they are mentioning Twilight. His directing of Rob and other actors is lazy at best. I overheard one audience member complaining that he didn’t even write any dialogue and copy pasted from the book and it shows..might as well just read the book..why make a film then??. I am sad for Rob because I really think that he is a good actor and a genuinely a good guy.

    • Lisa June 15, 2012 at 7:44 pm #

      Sorry you were disappointed but it seems a lot of ppl were. You know a lot of DC fans are questioning why Cosmopolis of all the things he could have picked to film. I guess only DC can answer why he thought it would be a good idea……

      • Shine June 15, 2012 at 8:53 pm #

        Thanks Lisa. Cronenberg sell out. Clearly. he became somehow an Eric Packer himself. I understand all too clearly now why he is literally clinging and holding Rob’s hand on every red carpet! And why the film is sold on Rob’s name; CRONENBERG- PATTINSON-COSMOPOLIS / wtf?/? and surfing on the Twilighty fans . DC sell out – the very Indie films are selling out to the Twilight multinationals! Cronenberg needs Stephenie Meyer more than she will ever need him. That being said and in my humble opinion Rob actually makes it less of a prozac moment. He is good in the prostate scene and the human scene. I mean . It infuriates me so I started a blog To me DC has become an Eric Packer somehow. The film got in Cannes only because most of the backers are French related, I suspects..France 2 , Canal Plus ect..when you read the credits its’as ll so clear..sad.

  33. kell June 15, 2012 at 5:42 pm #

    LMAO….ooo cant quit laughing……reading the EW article…yesss i subscribe….this one is the BDpt2 one….and i decided to read the article…. “They were amazing with her”, “It really brought something paternal out in Rob, and Kristen was especially protective”…….little bit later in paragraph…..On Mackenzie Foy and their relationship on screen … ” Its a really cool relationship, I hope it comes across”. ” Even our hands look similar”…”It was kind of strange. But funny how it actually helps, Its like ‘Oh hey, you look like me kid! Come on!”

    Serioussssssssssssssly?????? wtf?…..and Kristen being protective? yaaaaaa right…..she calls Mackenzie a kid just like the baby lol…..ohh yess…sooo protective and maternal *rolls eyes*

  34. Lisa June 15, 2012 at 7:55 pm #



    To say Cosmopolis polarised the audience is an understatement. About 60% of the audience walked out, and that’s a conservative estimation.

    • Diana June 16, 2012 at 3:57 pm #

      I think Booby is too much of a wimp to do that. If he was 2 inches from my face, he’d lose his phone and draw back a nub!

      • Tiny Wang is an idiot June 16, 2012 at 8:07 pm #

        I wonder if it’s just made up? He could just be trying to change his image to that of a “tough guy”… since he’s set to play a military interrogator and all….

  36. alexisis June 16, 2012 at 10:16 am #

    Booby should take a few tips from Daniel Radcliffe,who is set next year for another West End play.he is continually learning.and improving his being versatile.and generally keeping a low profile.

      Wonder what the next stunt will be from the uber private man 😆

      • Lisa June 16, 2012 at 11:58 am #

        Yep and we call him showing up in Australia with deathglare for promo……It is all they have.

        Not too sure where you’re coming from with that comment about peope on here dealing with Bob being her boyfriend. I think you’ll find everyone has accepted that fact, (maybe the odd one or two still find it difficult), so why say that. Personally, I still say she is gay/bi and is trying so hard to deny it to herself because she knows what effect it will have on her career. She knows if she comes out, she won’t be given certain parts anymore, and she wants the fame so much more than Bob does.

      • Rachel June 16, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

        What is great about this site is that you are all entitled to your opinions. I think most jump on and of the fence and the reality it changes nothing; Mr and Mrs Stewart are players, honesty and respect of others is something neither are capable of.

      • ? June 16, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

        i totally agree…
        they are players and completely dishonest and motivated by greed.. and will do whatever it takes to get more…imho of course..

        and someone said quite some time ago that they were really going to ramp up their public relay.. and we are now on that ride…
        i was just trying to make it easy for booby.. since he can’t seem to do much of anything properly.. rather than him trying to ‘show’ his epic love, which he never seems to get quite right.. just like his acting jobs…. let’s just say that he is with k..

        although the ‘walking out’ thing by others seems to be what happens with his performances, be it in the movies (cosmo) that he is in or his showmance.. 😆

    • movinon1 June 16, 2012 at 11:07 pm #

      That’s got to be a record of some kind…..people just up and walking out 😯 Personally I’m not a fan of Cronenberg, you either like his films or you don’t. Add to that Bob…. Well you get the picture….fucked up and dull.

      I’m thinking those so called 5 projects bob has lined up……ummmm I don’t think they’ll come to anything more than wishfull thinking!!!

      ps: I hope he does show up in Australia. I get a kick out of seeing shrew lead her bitch around 🙂

      • Lisa June 16, 2012 at 11:36 pm #

        Well while ppl are walking out of Cosmopolis oh and i just saw a tweet where a guy yelled at the end of the movie “it was the worst movie he has ever seen” here is Shrew and her movie, maybe HW will stop hiring them…..

        Of all the missteps the film made, it would be easy to foist the issues on the poorly-cast Stewart; yet, choosing Stewart might have actually been the perfect decision for the film. Throughout the film, I was struck by one simple idea. Like it’s lead, Snow White and the Huntsman is beautiful on the outside, but hollow and emotionless on the inside. Stewart has inadvertently become symbolic of all that is wrong with the film. And not just the film, but the industry as a whole. For years, studios have been focused heavily on finding the most mind-numbing projects to shepherd before its doting audiences, hoping to squeeze every last cent from a public that has been growing less discerning as each year passes. Sure, there are a number of films that have bucked this trend, but even recent Best Picture winners like The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire lack any real depth of emotion, preferring to focus on a thin veneer of sentimentality hoping the audience will not only fail to notice, but will accept and further lower their standards for future outings. Stewart could easily be the figurehead of a movement, thus explaining why she was the perfect selection for a film as blatantly money-hungry as this.

      • movinon1 June 17, 2012 at 12:09 am #

        Shrew is an embarrassment to actors.

      • Lena June 17, 2012 at 7:04 am #

        IMO, it means people are sheep. How many of these people who walk out of the cinema watched other Cronenberg movies or similar indies? How many of them would bother to even watch the trailer if Bob wasn’t in it? The movie doesn’t have to be bad. Only thing that is certain is the movie is not mainstream. Picasso also differed from the mainstream painters from his era and lots of people thought he was terrible. It doesn’t mean he was. He just had to find the right audience.

        Look at the other reviews from the site that made the tweet above. Why was a person who reviewed movies like MIB 3, SATH, Hulk, The Dictator or Prometheus watching Cosmopolis in the cinema anyway? No wonder Bob feels like he has to pull PR stunts. He wants to make indies, yet the people who clearly prefer to watch commercial mainstream movies go there, not surprisingly, walk out and then Bob ends up looking like a fool. If he was an unknown actor it would never happen to him because only the people who are really interested in this kind of cinematography would buy a ticket. But lots of people don’t handle him like any other actor (they either think he’s a god or they want to see him fail).

        Unless people leave him alone to do his thing, the PR games won’t ever stop if the wrong audience will scream their opinion and make him look like a loser. If you make a research to find out what the people who gave Cosmopolis bad reviews usually watch, it will be clear they are the wrong audience. Which means the only thing he’s able to offer them is entertainment a.k.a more PR stunts. It would be like Justin Bieber’s fans going to see Ludacris show only because these two once collaborated. What could a dirty south rapper like Luda offer to Bebier’s teen pop audience? Definitely not his music. It doesn’t mean he has nothing to offer to his hip hop audience, albeit much smaller audience.

      • ? June 17, 2012 at 8:10 am #

        your post left me confused..
        did you copy that from somewhere or are you saying that booby wants privacy and to make small films and critics and people who like ‘mainstream’ stuff should just leave him alone?
        b/c if the latter, than that requires booby to stop the pr and not take the lead roles .. imho of course.. critics come b/c he presents himself in public as a douchebag and he knows it.. and likes it imho.. and he has played pr games for YEARS.. so the real thing to do.. is if he wants out, then take a BREAK from all the f*ckery.. but he can’t and he won’t b/c imho he likes the infamy and MONEY..
        he can’t have his cake and eat it too.. rare is the person who can regardless of their profession..

      • ? June 17, 2012 at 8:35 am #

        Oh, and I call him a booby because he is an arrogant ass who can’t act.. He is not a fool, but a player who wants to win..what? Who knows, but my guess is that money and lots of it and infamy are 2 parts of his measure of success.. There is no nice guy just trying be real.. He’s played some nasty games pitting women against one another and that is not ok IMHO… And it makes him an asshole even by hw standards…IMHO of course..
        You can always look at other actors to see how they’ve conducted themselves and it is not the booby path..
        I think he and k are so divisive b/c they want it that way and like watching people attack one another over them… Disgusting..he’s reaping what he’s sown…

        Lena, it seems as if you’re trying to make excuses for Bob. Just because someone has previously reviewed MIB3, SWATH, Hulk etc, how do you know that wasn’t as part of their job and they would normally enjoy Cronenberg movies? And maybe they actually DID think that Cosmo really was a pile of shit and decided to walk out rather than sit there until the very end. How do you know that they prefer mainstream movies and only went to see Cosmo because Bob was in it? You don’t. Also, you said that if we did research, the people who gave it bad reviews would normally watch other movies. How do you know this for for a fact? You don’t. Once again, it is all excuses to try and justify why people are just not liking this movie.

        As for the PR games. they have absolutely nothing to do with whether people leave him alone or not to “do his thing”. He knows that he can’t sell any of his movies to his so called “fans” without bringing Robsten into the equation. The only problem with that is the fact that those “fans” won’t support him as anyone except Edward, and therefore, won’t see his other movies anyway. If he knew he had any credibilty as an actor, he would let his movies and his acting speak for itself, but he doesn’t.

        I totally agree with you.

      • Lena June 17, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

        ?, I try to be just objective. We know the vast majority of Booby’s fans like him as Edward. He’s the guy who has brought over $2 billion in a matter of five years by starring in Twilight alone. Do you know how easy it could be for him and tons of movie producers out there to capitalize on this fact and literally tailor characters solely aimed at Twilight audience? If he wanted, he could sign multiple deals to play Edward clones in all kind of romantic flicks, take $20 million per film, tousle his hair, grin in the camera and make those middle aged housewives swoon. It would be a piece of cake for him.

        Right now he’s a golden hen riding the Edward wave and there are tons of people that would gladly take a ride with him. Summit alone could create a division called R-Patz Pictures. Yet he decided to take Cronenber’s offer and fought to impress bunch of local patriots from Australia to give him a role. The film makers that can’t even afford to pay him the money he could easily get in HW. Why? Instead of taking easy job offers that would bring him heavy millions in a blink of an eye, he’s risking his own money to do something risky and less profitable. Talentless or not, money rules the world. An actor wouldn’t resist their allure unless he was very passionate about something else.

        I don’t care how ridiculous Bob can be, I give him a credit for at least trying to take this road, despite the fact he has other option. Let’s assume he wants to sell out. Why would he try to sell a movie like Cosmopolis or a military movie to a bunch of screaming girls if he could easily sell them some HW movie about epic love? This is not me making an excuse for him. The fact is neither of the movies Bob plans to shoot is romantic or stereotypically feminine. If something, they are the turn off. I think his movie choices will eventually turn the screaming fans off, just like Dicaprio’s choices once did. And perhaps Dicaprio is not a BO breaking heartthrob anymore, he has a pretty nice, stable career. Maybe Bob will never achieve this, maybe he will. I don’t know but at least he’s trying to do something else.jmo

        Steph, of course I can’t say it’s a fact they wouldn’t normally watch it but since most of those people rarely reviewed other Cronenberg’s movies or other non HW indies on their sites, why should I think they decided to watch and review some Canadian film because they normally enjoy this stuff? Here’s the total gross of other Cronenber’s movies. The average gross of Cronenberg’s movie is $12 million. Actually, all Cronenberg movies together earned less than WFE and Remember Me together and people call them flops. Does this number indicate that Cronenber is a director who’s popular with every other mainstream newspaper, blog or magazine?

        I have no doubt the people who walked out really thought it was a pile of shit but I also have no doubt most of young Britney Spears fans would think the same thing at Metallica concert. As I said, it’s all about the right audience.

      • Rachel June 17, 2012 at 1:32 pm #

        I think Mr Stewart is grateful for any audience, his acting is way below par and he has not achieved anything by merit. JMO He is a famehore

      • Steph June 17, 2012 at 1:49 pm #

        Sorry, Lena. But you are still making excuses for him. I’m sure all those people who walked out or gave it bad reviews knew EXACTLY what Cronenebergs movies were like, whether Bob was in it or not. And they gave their honest OPINION on both Cronenbergs movie AND Bob himself.
        And HTF can you say that about BS and Metallica? That is the stupidiest thing I have ever read. BS fans wouldn’t even CONSIDER going to a Metallica concert because they know the type of music is different, but Bob fans or Cronenberg fans would go to the movie to give them both a chance. But obviously they just don’t like the movie.

      • ? June 17, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

        I disagree with a few of your fundamental assertions in your reply to me.. Rather than going back and forth justifying each of our own premises, which are all hypothetical anyway, I think it’s easier to just say that I respectfully disagree with you about booby’s options in hw..
        Also, I notice how your selected terminology and tone seems to have changed IMHO of course.. Actually, I think that you are a booby pr person and you’ve been building up to this..
        Laugh if you will, but your response just lays it out there from a defensive booby manner.. And tone that spells handler.. IMHO of course..

      • ? June 17, 2012 at 2:17 pm #

        Oh and Lena,
        There is nothing objective about what you’ve written.. It’s a persusive essay with all the bells and whistles.. IMHO of course..

      • Lisa June 17, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

        Whoa Lena you lost me at Picasso because comparing Cosmo to Picasso is like comparing Caviar to a smoking pile of shit.

      • Lena June 19, 2012 at 5:24 am #

        Girls, although trying to be objective, I was only stating my opinion, which is always subjective, albeit some things like Cronenberg’s BO numbers speak for themselves.

        I like to make fun of Bob just like anybody else here but I don’t like being prejudiced. I always try to separate art from entertainment and don’t let the one to affect the other for me. It doesn’t matter if I make a comparison to Picasso, Van Gogh (who used to be considered as a very shitty artist by many people and died poor) or somebody else. The fact is there are people who like Cosmopolis. Ignoring their opinion or pretending their positive reviews are irrelevant is not fair. Every coin has two sides. If we talk about the bad reviews, we should at least acknowledge the good ones. If some people liked the movies, they are the right audience for it.

        This is the case of pretty much every Cronenberg movie. The difference is his other movies weren’t so much acknowledged by the mainstream media. Cronenberg fanbase was always very small but solid. The positive reviews the movie received indicate there’re people who can enjoy it. Calling a movie shit is disrespectful to their opinion. This is not only about Bob. This is also about the other actors, the whole crew and people who genuinely like it. Are they worse or more stupid because of their different taste and preferences? If I was a critic I would never dare to express such arrogance I’ve seen in some reviews about Cosmo. It’s highly unprofessional, especially from the critics who can’t back up their harsh attitude with previous public reviews of other movies of a similar nature.

        I’m not a hater. Just because Bob often acts stupid, it doesn’t mean I will side only with his critics now. Nothing is black or white, not even Bob. I can’t stand half-truths. Isn’t it a reason you don’t like Bob after all? Yet, people have no problem to gather only the bad reviews while ignoring the rest. It’s equally misleading as gathering only the good reviews. Both are PR in a way and try to mislead people. The only difference is one tries to attract them while the other tries to repel them. That’s just me of course so I guess agreeing to disagree is the best option.

        As for being his PR…Well, I hate misleading people. Bob would have to fire me immediately.

      • movinon1 June 17, 2012 at 5:31 pm #

      • Liza June 17, 2012 at 5:45 pm #


        Like I said in my reply to Lisa. I don’t know any of them or who they are fans of. But I always see them on ohnotheydidnt defending nikki reed from kristen fans. And I though they might like it here. That’s all.

      • movinon1 June 17, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

        Liza, you could be right, only they would know if they like it here 🙂

  48. Lisa June 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

    Yea Lena I am sure there is a REASOn they are walking out and it has nothing to do with DC being misunderstood like Picasso 🙄
    Polly Vernon‏@PollyVernon

    Anyway. I just walked out of Cosmopolis. Tosh.

  49. Lisa June 17, 2012 at 5:04 pm #

    This kinda explains it, why would anyone want to go to the movies to have to come out and do research, shit we have enough of that in everyday life. And everyone agrees mostly that Bob can do great acting dead and souless.

    “extravagantly complex themes delivered through its dialogue heavy script leaves the film – although interesting, not particularly enjoyable to watch – though not in the sense that it’s a difficult watch – just demands an intense engagement from its audience – though in reality it seems that to really engage you would have to go away and think about it and research the complexities of the ideas discussed – therefore the process of actually watching the film itself – isnt that much fun. I wanted to be interested, I wanted to like it and I wanted to understand it – I’m not 100% sure that I actually did. I did however get the sense that the same level of engagement with the book by Don DeLillo would offer a much greater return.”

    • Lisa June 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm #


      I had to walk out of a film at the cinema today for the first time in my life, some nexxxxxt doo doo film

      @kieshahanson some film called cosmopolis

      • movinon1 June 17, 2012 at 5:35 pm #

        Half like it, that would be the sheep, and the other half hate it, that would be realists. So who would you believe?…..I’m a realist 😉

      • Steph June 17, 2012 at 5:39 pm #

        That’s just it, Moving, it’s more than half who don’t like it. And most of the sheep are probably too young to go and see it, and wouldn’t anyway because he’s not playing Ed the Undead! 😉

      • Lisa June 17, 2012 at 5:43 pm #

        I am just amazed I don’t remember this ever happening…..

      • movinon1 June 17, 2012 at 6:01 pm #

        😯 more than half 😯 I know the sheep on twitter rave about it and the nonnies on twitter feel its a good film for bob. I’m just not a fan of Cronenberg so I don’t think even if bob wasn’t in it I would not see it.
