Remember Me – Robert Pattinson interview
ROBERT Pattinson talks about his new film, Remember Me, what appealed about the character of Tyler, the themes of the movie and working with Pierce Brosnan as his father.
He also talks about how he chooses projects outside of the Twilight movies and why brooding is a new term for him…
Q. What did you like about the script when you were approached?
Robert Pattinson: I’d read tons of scripts over the summer, after I did Twilight – I mean hundreds… and everything just seemed exactly the same. This one initially stood out in the way the dialogue was written – it just seemed much more naturalistic than most things. Tyler as a character – it seems that most movies which have a young male protagonist as the lead have to be either a virgin, or have to learn everything during the movie, or they always go through the trials of the movie and end up a different person and they’re completely fine afterwards. But Tyler starts off with a lot of baggage and a very full and developed character, and ends up being developed in a slightly different way, rather than: “Oh I’m fine now!” You just never see that in films very much, especially for young people’s parts.
Q. How was working with Pierce Brosnan as your father?
Robert Pattinson: I never ever would have thought initially it would have been someone like Pierce playing Charles. I think he has an innate likeability to him, as soon as you meet him he’s very, very charismatic. Charles, on the page, was someone who’s very domineering and quite a negative character, and Pierce just by being Pierce can change the whole dynamic of it, which made for a much for interesting relationship. He’s a really nice guy.
Q. You’re very sweet with the young girl playing your sister. It seems like a very natural relationship. Tell us about how you made it seem that way?
Robert Pattinson: It’s all down to Ruby Jerins, who plays her. I don’t have any younger brothers or sisters… I’ve got two older sisters. I kind of think I always wanted a younger sibling – not that I have anything against my sisters [laughs]. But she’s just one of the best actresses I’ve ever worked with. She’s surprisingly articulate about her character. When I first met her, she seemed like a very, very normal kid, and then the more she talked about her character’s development, she could talk about it for hours. And she could also improvise for hours and was so comfortable in front of a camera and working with adults. It was very easy to do anything with her. You could just look at her and know what to do immediately.
Q. At what point did you realise you could use your powers for good and through your success help finance movies like this? And what pressures are there on you to make other stuff that might earn more money but be less satisfying?
Robert Pattinson: I never like anything, so it’s quite easy to decide what to do – even movies I’m not in [laughs]! I’ve never felt any pressure to do anything, particularly. Even when we were shooting it, I never thought about the box office… it’s only when it came to promoting it that you’re asked about that stuff. Obviously, it’s not like a Twilight movie, it’s an original screenplay, and it doesn’t fit into any genre… it’s not really that much of a feel-good movie. They don’t make movies like it anymore. I think that’s how I kind of choose stuff. That’s the only criteria I really have. If there seems to be a gap in the market for something, then I try and do that. I’m trying to do that with all the other things I’m doing afterwards.
Q. How were you with the New York accent?
Robert Pattinson: I think it just came out of the script. I pretty much had the same voice from the first time I read the script to the whole way through the movie. Sometimes when you’re lucky, you just read a script and the voice comes out right. I wasn’t even conscious of doing a New York accent – I don’t even know what borough or anything! I’ve spent a bit of time in New York, and just tried to pick up on how people speak. But I don’t know where my accent is now – I wouldn’t say I’ve specifically got a London accent anymore.
Q. Your character has a buddy, Aiden, who becomes increasingly important to him. Do you have a real-life equivalent – a male buddy? And your sister in the movie regards your character as a hero to protect her – do you have a hero?
Robert Pattinson: I’ve grown up with the same friends since I was 12. I have a very, very close-knit set of them. As for the hero – I think I’m always kind envious of that. I grew up with people that a lot of other people regarded as heroes, but no-one ever kind to me for advice or protection – so I think I’ve been left out as a hero! As regards my own heroes, outside of my family I don’t really know… they are great people, my parents are great parents and they brought me up very well. I think that’s about all the heroes I have.
Q. How important is the reaction of your fans to this, being such a different, more low-key project to Twilight?
Robert Pattinson: I always felt it’s the most important thing you can do, doing films like this, which are quite difficult, I would have thought, to just generically advertise and get out to people. Having something like Twilight and Lost gives it publicity immediately. So, if people go to see it… once you’ve got them into the cinema, then it’s almost inevitable that they’ll get drawn into it, hopefully. Obviously, you hope people like things, but if you start doing stuff to please a certain audience then you’re going in the wrong direction – because you can never please people by deciding for them, you don’t even know the people you’re trying to please… especially when you’re trying to please huge swathes of people!
Q. What is it that attracts you to deep and brooding types like Tyler and Edward, and might you do a comedy?
Robert Pattinson: I did do lighter stuff before Twilight came out. It just so happened that Twilight has become so much about this archetypal, brooding person. I never thought Tyler was that brooding, to be honest! I never even heard the word before Twilight. I guess you like to play broken, troubled characters because that’s more interesting, especially because I’m not particularly broken or troubled myself. I’m doing something now which is still quite dark but the character isn’t so fractured… it’s someone who is incredibly focused and has a lot of confidence in himself. Nothing can shake his confidence. After that, I think there’s a lighter thing as well. It’s not really that they’re angsty… joy seems to be a universal emotion but in scripts, it’s quite difficult – if you’re happy, you’re happy.
Q. Can you talk about the progression of your character – did you always have a clear view of how you were going to play him?
Robert Pattinson: Well, the script changed so much over seven months, and had lots of re-writes. I spoke a lot to Nick and Alan [Coulter], the director, and the writers, Will and Jenny. I tried to tailor things to what I was interested in. The relationship with the Dad changed quite a lot… because I thought, when you’re a young guy, one of your biggest fears, is an irrational fear of walking in your dad’s footsteps and living the same life as him.
Even if your dad’s a good guy, you just want to assert your independence on everything and that causes irrational rages. It developed into something quite different and specific from the first reading. But I always feel pretty connected to it. I thought it was a great template from the beginning. The other thing that was interesting about it was how it dealt with grief. Tyler doesn’t deal with grief in the typical way. Dealing with sorrow is a noble emotion and grief when your young can be very cheap in a lot of ways… and I thought that was quite interesting how Tyler does want to forget about his past.
Q. Tyler is quite an angry, punchy young man. How did you psyche yourself up for the fight scenes, and have you ever been in a fight?
Robert Pattinson: I haven’t been in a fight for quite a long time. I’m too scared now. I think if I got into a fight now, I’d go: “Just kill me!” I liked a lot of Tyler’s character, the rebelliousness and the audaciousness of it, because it’s kind of like a fantasy of myself. Like: “I’m the type of guy who just randomly gets into fights… getting into them all the time.” I’m not really.
Q. How was fighting Chris Cooper?
Robert Pattinson: Chris Cooper is unbelievably strong… he’s terrifying! Also, the fight I had at the beginning, I was doing it with the big stunt guy and I was hitting a thing next to his head, and hit him with what I thought was my full strength, I hit his face about four times, and every time I was going: “I’m sorry, I’m sorry!” And he said, “It’s fine, it doesn’t really hurt.” That was kind of an ego-deflater.
Q. When an Australian and a Brit working together did it provide the backdrop for a shared sense of humour?
Robert Pattinson: On the day of the audition, when Emilie got the part, we went to a bar afterwards, and I swear Emily, who’s the tiniest girl, drank about 24 beers and was stone-cold sober afterwards! I thought… this is different, this is something for the character!

“Remember Me” Is A Romantic And Dramatic Film
Movie Review Jackie K Cooper
“Remember Me” (Summit Entertainment)
Pattinson’s Second Bite Out of the Box Office
Robert Pattinson rose to fame as the star of the two “Twilight” movies. Those films highlighted his looks but not his acting talents. He gets a chance to display these skills in his new film “Remember Me.” His co-star in this movie is “Lost” participant Emilie de Raven.
In this new movie Pattinson plays a twenty-one year old man named Tyler. Tyler has a lot of conflict in his life caused by the death of an older brother, the divorce of his parents, and his responsibilities to his younger sister. He lives with a roommate named Aiden (Tate Ellington) and audits college courses.
Through a series of events he meets a young woman named Ally (de Ravin) and they begin seeing each other. Ally has her own set of problems as her mother was murdered right in front of her eyes in a subway mugging ten years previously. This loss has caused her father (Chris Cooper) to be overly protective.
Ally immediately fits in with Tyler’s family. His mother (Lena Olin, stepfather (Gregory Jbarra) and sister (Ruby Jerins) welcome her with open arms primarily on the premise that if she is good for Tyler she is good for them. Ally tries to help Tyler with his relationship with his father (Pierce Brosnan) but it remains difficult.
The most important and fascinating part of the film is that you believe these characters are who they profess to be. There is not one false note struck among them. Plus this is one of the most romantic movies, in a dramatic way, that has been offered by Hollywood in some time.
Pattinson is totally impressive as Tyler. He has a brooding restlessness about him that should add even more screaming girls to his legion of fans. Plus this role should lead to more offers of serious parts coming his way. Opposite him de Ravin kicks aside her mannerisms from Claire on “Lost” and creates a totally new character. Ally has depth and demons just like Tyler and de Ravin brings every one to the surface.
Olin is vulnerable as Tyler’s mother while Ellington is only mildly annoying as Aiden, a role that was written to be annoying. Cooper seethes with intensity as Ally’s father while Brosnan is icily businesslike as Tyler’s father. It is his best role in years and manages to wipe out some of the bad memories of his performances in “Mama Mia!” and “Percy Jackson and the Olympians.”
Giving Pattinson and de Ravin a run for their money in the best acting contest is Jerins. She makes her role as Caroline the heart of the movie. She is quietly sad and emotionally tender. She is also fascinating to watch. There should be big roles ahead for this talented young actress.
The movie is rated PG-13 for profanity, violence and sexual situations.
There is a twist at the end of this film which some have found to be interesting and appropriate while others have found it offensive. I thought it was a very fitting way to end the movie.
“Remember Me” is a movie I will remember and I think you will too. It certainly heralds new aspects to the acting careers of Pattinson and de Ravin, and it introduces a star of tomorrow in Ruby Jerins.”
I scored “Remember Me” an unforgettable 7 out of 10.
Jackie K. Cooper
While both reviews have only good things to say about Rob’s acting the reviewers opinion about the movie differ.
– “Remember Me may remembered after other romantic movies are forgotten for its compelling performances and intriguing script. It certainly surprised this reviewer, as I was expecting much less. ” – The Blurb
– “However, aside from allowing Pattinson a chance to flex his acting chops, Remember Me isn’t good for much else. It sits awkwardly between the heavy drama and teen romance genres, and much like a misunderstood teenager, it isn’t sure where it belongs, ultimately alienating itself from both.” – C.P.R.
Both reviews below .
Warning -contains spoilers
At last – an intelligent romantic drama
You have to give credit to a film which starts powerfully and grabs you by the eyeballs. That’s certainly the case here. A dramatic sequence with striking camera angles and lighting makes an instant impression and sets the mood for this gritty romance about two dysfunctional families. Aided by strong acting and an intelligent script, Remember Me is a cut above most romantic films.
Tyler Hawkins (Robert Pattinson) a rebel looking for a cause has a difficult relationship with his estranged high flying father (Pierce Brosnan). Street-hardened cop Sgt. Neil Craig’s (Chris Cooper) wife was shot dead by hoodlums in front of his young daughter ten years previously. Craig in recent times has become over protective.
When Tyler and his best mate Aidan (Tate Ellington) get involved in a street brawl they’re arrested by Craig. By coincidence, Craigs’s daughter Ally (Emilie de Ravin) attends the same college as Tyler and he’s encouraged by Aidan to make out with her in order to get back at the rough handling he experienced from her dad. In a sub-plot, Tyler’s young sister Caroline (Ruby Jerins), something of a romantic dreamer, is set upon at a party. Tyler is outraged by this and his father’s apparent indifference to Caroline’s success as a budding artist.
Tyler and Ally actually fall in love but their happiness is short-lived as family pressures and secrets create an untenable situation threatening their relationship. Things are suddenly brought to a head in an unexpected and devastating conclusion; the moral being to make the most of every day.
Director Allen Coulter, whose previous feature was Hollywoodland as well as episodes of The Sopranos, lovingly crafts a picture of New York at in important time in its history. He’s clearly comfortable with his actors and gains excellent performances. Credit must go to Will Fetters’ script with its layers of meaning and convincing dialogue. Cinematography makes use of colour to suit the mood, with impressive camerawork.
At the risk of getting abusive mail, I have to confess I’m not a great fan of Robert Pattinson (Twilight) in his limp vampire outings. He’s on his mettle here, with a touch of the young Marlon Brando and a sense of being real. You should applaud a good performance as this one deserves. His intimate scenes with the curvaceous Emilie de Ravin (Public Enemies) have that elusive electric tingle, their lovemaking captured sympathetically rather than bordering on the pornographic. The shower sequence is a good example. They make one of the screen’s more pleasing romantic couplings.
Chris Cooper (The Kingdom) puts in a sensitive performance with depth as the tough but heartbroken cop. This reliable actor seems to fall into roles that suit him. It’s good to see Pierce Brosnan (Mamma Mia!) in serious mode for a change, doing much to confirm his status as a fine actor. A surprise packet is young Ruby Jerins (Shutter Island) as Caroline, she’s just a charmer and steals her scenes right out from under her co-stars. Tate Ellington (The Invention of Lying) provides a level of comic relief as Tyler’s close friend, while Lena Olin (The Reader) emotionally captures his grieving mother who lost her other son to suicide.
Remember Me may remembered after other romantic movies are forgotten for its compelling performances and intriguing script. It certainly surprised this reviewer, as I was expecting much less. Be warned – the shock twist at the end is a gut punch.
Something unexpected happened around the half hour mark of the ho-hum romantic drama Remember Me. No, the film didn’t start to improve. Don’t be silly. Rather, I realised that leading man Robert Pattinson – or RPattz as his legions of adoring Twilight fans call him – was in the middle of doing something many critics said he wasn’t capable of. Yes, he was acting. And doing a pretty darn good job of it too.
However, aside from allowing Pattinson a chance to flex his acting chops, Remember Me isn’t good for much else. It sits awkwardly between the heavy drama and teen romance genres, and much like a misunderstood teenager, it isn’t sure where it belongs, ultimately alienating itself from both.
With an uncanny resemblance to James Dean, Pattinson portrays angst-ridden Tyler Hawkins, a 21-year-old Brooklyn boy with daddy issues. Still cut from by the loss of his older brother years before, Tyler channels his anger toward his father Charles (Pierce Brosnan), a successful businessman who places family a distant second. After a clash with a jaded police detective (Chris Cooper) lands him in jail for the night, Tyler’s best friend Aidan (Tate Ellington) suggests he enact his revenge by wooing the officer’s daughter Ally (Emilie de Ravin). However, the two find comfort in each other’s company and eventually fall in love, causing Tyler to bury the truth behind their supposed ‘chance’ encounter.
As implied by the film’s tag-line ‘Live Life in the Moment’, screenwriter Will Fetters has scribed a story about appreciating the little things. That’s fine, but did those little things all have to be this mundane? While the dialogue flows naturally, most of the drama in Remember Me lacks any real weight of consequence, haphazardly strung together by director Allen Coulter (Hollywoodland) without much consideration for dramatic tension. If it wasn’t for Marcelo Zarvos’ poignant score, I wouldn’t have known at any given time what emotion I was supposed to be feeling.
With Remember Me predominantly appealing to starry-eyed teenage girls, it doesn’t help that the romance between Tyler and Ally is criminally underwritten. The two barely get a chance to share sob stories before they’re in each other’s pants. I guess when you’re the adored star of Twilight, girls don’t put up much of a fight. Nevertheless, the credibility of their relationship suffers as a result, which seems more interested in giving Pattinson and De Ravin an excuse to show off some skin than develop in any kind of meaningful way.
De Ravin, let down by the two dimensional nature of her character, leaves little impression as Ally, which is a shame because the 28-year-old Lost star has talent. With a far meatier role, Pattinson crafts a likable character out of Tyler, handling each emotional shift far more convincingly than he ever did as Edward in Twilight. He goes head to head with acting veterans Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan and surprisingly comes out on top, proving he’s more than just a pretty face. In fact, the only time he is truly outshone is during his scenes with the tremendously talented 11-year-old actress Ruby Jerins, who plays Tyler’s younger sister Caroline. Their touching relationship is easily the highlight of an otherwise unremarkable film.
And that’s the cruel irony here; Remember Me is totally forgettable. It knows it, too. That’s why it features a shock ending that arrives like a sharp stab in the back, a desperate act to bleed emotion out of the audience in the most shameless of ways. If it is to be remembered, it’ll be for all the wrong reasons.
Robert Pattinson And Emilie De Ravin ‘Click’ In ‘Remember Me’
‘They both found each other amusing,’ director Allen Coulter says of onscreen couple’s chemistry.
Robert Pattinson and the minds behind the romantic drama “Remember Me” auditioned scores of young actresses for the starring role opposite the 23-year-old British heartthrob. No one was the right fit until “Lost” star Emilie de Ravin read for the part. Weeks later, she was on the New York set with a prime role in Pattinson’s first big post-“Twilight” film.
All involved in the casting choice pointed to her immediate connection with RPattz as the reason she nabbed the part. How did the 28-year-old Australian actress establish that instant chemistry?
“I don’t know,” she admitted to MTV News at the red-carpet premiere for “Remember Me” on Monday night. “With friends, or people you date, or with family, you just sort of click, sort of get along. I don’t really know how to put your finger on those things.”
As an observer, though, director Allen Coulter was able to do just that: identify the key ingredients that led to their onscreen chemistry. “From the beginning, I think they both found each other amusing, so there was a lot of laughter on the set and between takes and even sometimes during takes,” he told MTV News. “It was great, because she was unimpressed by the phenomenon, and he was unimpressed by the phenomenon. I think they were both a little staggered when we showed up on the street and they were mobbed. But I think they kept it light for each other, and on the set and off the set, they were pals.”
De Ravin didn’t have much time to prepare for the craziness that surrounded the production as they shot on location on the New York streets. She was thrust into wardrobe on the same day she flew in to read with Pattinson. But as she told us earlier this year, the pair were able to lean on each other for support throughout the process.
“It was so great being able to work with someone you immediately get along with and is incredibly talented and is driven to make the film as good as we can,” she said. “Having someone you can go and talk with about a scene, and it’s all very casual and easy, that made filming such a delight — having a friendship level and a commitment to the script. The way Rob and I developed our relationship onscreen was very natural and just seeing what happened with scenes, what happens in the moment.”
Locking lips with Robert Pattinson was just another day at the office for Emilie de Ravin.
“He’s a lovely guy,” says De Ravin, who costars as Pattinson’s love interest in the soon-to-be-released Remember Me. “Nothing felt unnatural or weird.”
Luckily, Pattinson was someone the Aussie starlet liked…
“Sometimes those things are awkward, but we get along really well and we’re friends,” she said. “So everything in that respect then was much easier. It became just a part of the day.”
Not so easy was shooting most of the romantic drama on location in New York City. Overzealous Pattinson fans and paparazzi seemed to be everywhere. “Crazy is the word,” de Ravin remembered. “It’s a little challenging sometimes. We were very accessible to people in Manhattan.
“It’s fascinating, though,” she continued with a laugh. “I didn’t know there were so many women here…You’re trying to work out your rehearsal and all these eyes just watching everything you’re doing It’s like, ‘OK, I’ve just got to focus.'”
And not pay attention to tabloid speculation about their relationship. “I never understood that,” de Ravin said. “I never did and I still don’t…It’s acting. I feel like people should kind of get that.”
In Remember Me, Pattinson plays a rebellious son of a wealthy New Yorker who ends up falling in love with Ally (de Ravin), the daughter of a Queens policeman.
Be warned, this is a tearjerker.
De Ravin said, “If you don’t cry, there’s something wrong with you.”
Summit Entertainment has provided us with a Robert Pattinson on set interview and a ton of behind the scenes footage from Remember Me. While I generally don’t post studio provided interviews, I know how popular Robert Pattinson is, and the 9 minute interview isn’t online yet.
And regarding the behind the scenes footage…when a movie is filming, the studio will document the process and release what’s called B-Roll. This is generally footage of the cast and crew working on location, or footage of the cast filming a scene. If you’re curious what being on a movie set is really like, you’ll enjoy the footage. Remember Me stars Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan, and Chris Cooper. Allen Coulter directed the film and William Fetters wrote the script.
Behind the Scene
Yesterday I attended a roundtable interview with Robert Pattinson for his upcoming romantic drama Remember Me. I’m a new writer at Collider and it was my first time attending a press junket and participating in a roundtable interview. Let’s just say it was an interesting experience. Anyway, in the coming days, expect more from the junket and I’ll also be contributing TV and film news.
Since Rob was there to talk about Remember Me, I was only able to get a small bit of information for you Twilight fans. But about Remember Me, Rob was very passionate about the film and seemed very eager to dive deep into his character, Tyler Hawkins. He spent a lot of time unfolding the elements of Tyler, and discovering how much he had in common with him. Hit the jump for everything Rob had to say. Remember Me gets released March 12.
Question: Was there a time where you were sitting with Alan Coulter and the producer and something clicked for you? Can you talk about why you were attracted to this character, and about taking that step to produce?
Robert Pattinson: Well, the producing thing. (laughs) I’m kind of embarrassed about the producing thing because I wasn’t really acting like a proper producer. I only really came on after the shoot just to kind of help Alan and Nick make sure that the product was what the product in which we all wanted to make in the end. It was the summer after the first Twilight. I read it then and I met with Alan and Nick. I thought they were really great, and I talked to them for hours about it. I think basically what I commented to them about was, what shocked me was I was reading a ton of scripts and it just didn’t fall into any, the way the dialogue was written and the plot was structured, it didn’t fit into any kind of normal category. It didn’t seem very formulaic. I had just read tons and tons of formulaic scripts in one genre or another and it was just such a relief to find that. There was also something about Tyler, the way he reacted to things seemed very relatable to me, and I hadn’t seen another character like it in like 100 scripts. So that’s why when the period came up between New Moon and Eclipse, we only had two months, you can’t really do that much, it’s difficult to find a movie which can fit in such a short period. It seemed like the perfect fit.
He’s a rebellious character, especially against his father. Were you attracted to that idea?
Pattinson: I mean, I don’t know if it was so much about just the rebellion that interested me. I liked how it seemed like Tyler didn’t really know what he was rebelling against. It seemed like no matter what his father was like, no matter what everyone around him is like, he’d still be rebelling. There was one interesting thing, I liked how he wasn’t fighting against everybody, he only chose to fight against his father. I think it was a pretty broken family to begin with, and I think he just takes out all of his rage on his father because his father is the only one who can take it. I mean if he tried to attack his mother, she’d probably end up killing herself or something. She’s too wounded to be able to take that. I don’t think it’s particularly typical rebel. It just comes in fits and starts all the time, so I think he’s kind of faking it. I think what he’s really rebelling against is himself.
More after the jump
Remember Me’s Emilie de Ravin sat down to answer some questions from the fans about the film and her character, Ally Craig:
You’ve had a very diverse career from doing Lost on TV to movies, and in the roles you’ve played. What motivates and inspires you to take on a character or project?
– Andrea L. Lavigne
I suppose what motivates and inspires me is a role/project that challenges me in a new and different way. There’s also that instant connection with a character I feel when I read a script and would die to play her…hard to verbalize but it’s just a feeling I get when I read something I love.
What does “Remember Me” have that makes it different from common romantic stories?
– John Sikovaris
The characters are so beautifully unique and their relationships break the norm. It’s a reality driven piece that depicts so many parts of a relationship. Not just Ally and Tyler’s but their relationship with their families and in turn, how that effects them.
What was it like to work with co-star Robert Pattinson? Did you spend time getting to know each other before filming or during to create chemistry?
– Lauren Spratt
We had a really great time working together. Instead of just doing a scene and reading your lines, it felt like I was just reacting to him and the situation which made it feel very natural and un-forced. Probably the case because not only did we get along really well- we made a point of being on the same page as each other to do with our characters’ relationship. Not reading over and over scenes, but more talking about them and our characters and finding moments one or both of us hadn’t noticed before. I think really getting to know someone helps a lot with having believable chemistry on-screen.
Other than the Ally/Tyler relationship, which do you think is the best relationship in the film and why?
– Natalia Al
Ruby and Rob who play Caroline and Tyler-They had such a great chemistry together. Even though there’s a big age difference between the characters they have such an adult relationship. Tyler could not be more caring and protective of Caroline and goes to great lengths to try and make her father understand and be there for her.
Ally is such a strong yet sweet character. Was it difficult to balance those qualities in your portrayal?
– “Deserae Torrez
It was in a way, although Ally and I have some similar traits it’s more challenging to not just play a version of yourself, but rather use those similar characteristics and develop a totally new character.
