Rob Pattinson Talks About Shaking His ‘Twilight’ Image
This is a great interview in which Rob talks about his career, wanting to break out of Twilight and dealing with the Twilight fandom!
TRANSFORMED by the Twilight films into a swoon-inducing star with a frenzied female following, Robert Pattinson is attempting to break the mould.
First he appeared in the low-key romantic dramas Remember Me and Water for Elephants followed by last month’s Bel Ami about a poverty-stricken soldier’s sex-driven ascent to power in Parisian society.
And next he’ll be in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, based on the novel about a billionaire whose life falls apart in one day as he travels across town for a haircut. “One of the weirdest scripts I’ve ever read,” remarks Pattinson.
Weighing up three new projects – none of which he will discuss, though his latest crewcut hairstyle is for a screentest – the 25-year-old is unsure what to do next. The problem is, he says, that he hasn’t yet developed his own screen persona because he is inextricably associated with the Edward Cullen vampire role.
“Nobody’s going ‘Get me Pattinson’. I always find the best scripts have been written with people in mind but I don’t know who I am yet in terms of cinema and I haven’t done enough work to have an audience perceive something,” says the teen heart-throb also known as R-Patz.
“It’s still ‘Oh, there’s the Twilight guy trying to do something else’. I’m very conscious of what I think people would believe me as, which drives my management crazy,” he reveals.
