Interestingly, the elephant in the room turned out to be the least of anyone’s troubles. (As Pattinson puts it, “She was the most consistently professional creature I have ever worked with.”) It was the horses—two white Andalusians and two black Friesians—that turned out to be high-strung and unpredictable. “Reese grew up around horses,” says Lawrence, “and she owns a couple that she rides now, and even she was scared of them.” Says Witherspoon: “I’ve always been a little bit of a tomboy that way, so I just always enjoy the thrill of doing something dangerous.”
She got more than she wished for. Not only did she get thrown from a horse one day, Pattinson tells a story about shooting a scene in which one of the horses is lying down in a train car with Witherspoon curled up on the ground next to it when suddenly the horse jumped to its feet and stepped on her leg. “I could see in Reese’s face that it must have hurt more than anything, and she played it off like it was absolutely nothing,” says Pattinson. “And then the next day she had this enormous bruise. It could have quite easily broken her leg, but she didn’t mention it to anybody. She is just incredibly brave that way.”
Witherspoon’s toughness was one of the main reasons Lawrence cast her in the film. “What I liked is that there’s that determination, but there’s also a sense of humor and a sense of vulnerability. It must come from her family and upbringing. You sort of feel like if she sets her mind to something, it’s going to happen—nothing is going to get in her way. And that’s part of what keeps her interesting—and oddly a little dangerous.”
Pattinson, too, thinks there’s more to Witherspoon than meets the eye. “In terms of public perception, she’s thought of as America’s Sweetheart. And she kind of is in a lot of ways. But I think that she’s a lot bawdier than that, a lot more raucous. It did actually shock me to see that. She’s tough. You wouldn’t want to get into an argument with her at all.” He laughs.
“You can always tell that she will be incredibly nice to anyone who’s not an idiot, but it’s always very clear that there’s a line you really shouldn’t cross.” (When I tell Witherspoon that Pattinson said this, her response is classic Reese: “Oh, yeah. I’m a little junkyard dog.”)
Robert Pattinson Moves Beyond ‘Twilight’
Twilight-fans, take heart: Robert Pattinson is every bit as good-looking and thick-maned as he appears onscreen. But don’t confuse him with his brooding characters — the 24-year-old actor is surprisingly open, chatty, and quick to laugh. Pattinson talked with EW last week about his upcoming film Water for Elephants (in theaters April 22), in which he plays a traveling-circus veterinarian who falls for the show’s star attraction, played by Reese Witherspoon. He also discussed what his future might look like once he’s finished with Twilight. “You can never really predict what an audience wants or how to maintain a career,” he says, “other than doing what you think is cool.” But, Pattinson laughs, “Generally, what I think is cool is what everyone else hates.”
Filming for the final two installments of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn will wrap next month, and there’s one thing Pattinson says he won’t miss — the contact lenses he’s had to wear to play Edward. “My God, I’ll be glad to see the last of those,” he says. “I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive. I want to reanimate them into something so I can kill them. It’s so embarrassing for me — after so many years, it’s still a process every single morning. Everybody else has figured out how to do it, and then there’s two people holding me down because I can’t do it myself.”
People magazine is kicking off their Sexiest Man Alive edition and they’re featuring Rob in the Sexy At Any Age category.
The question is: What’s not sexy about the Twilight star? Case in point: Pattinson, with his signature messy hair and intense stare, ignites mass hysteria wherever he goes. “I don’t know how the Beatles felt, but very few human beings could ever get this feeling,” he told PEOPLE. “You can’t prepare for this.”
First they asked out Taylor Swift, and now the cast of MTV’s The Buried Life has their sights set on another A-lister.
On Monday’s all-new episode, cast members Dave Lingwood, Ben Nemtin and Duncan and Jonnie Penn accept a dare from their fans to steal a lock of Robert Pattinson‘s hair. “It seemed like the most impossible thing to do from the list our fans sent,” says Jonnie Penn. Now able to cross another item off their list of things to do before they die, Jonnie dishes to UsMagazine.com on the group’s R-Pattz game plan.
UsMagazine.com: Way to be the envy of women everywhere now that you’ve bonded with one of the world’s hottest vampires! How did this whole plan come together?
Jonnie Penn: The item we wanted to cross off our list was No. 48: accept a dare. This season on the show, we wanted to do things that were really difficult and we asked the audience to challenge us to do something we didn’t want to do. Stealing a lock of Robert Pattinson’s hair seemed like the most impossible from the list our fans sent us on Facebook. Someone wrote in asking if we’d steal Mike Tyson‘s tiger from The Hangover, which sounded also very difficult, but could also be deadly, so we decided not to do that one.
Us: Were you a Twi-hard when you began this task?
JP: I was as familiar with him as the next person, but we had to do research online and on Twitter beforehand.
Us: You didn’t have R-Pattz posters on your bedroom walls?
JP: No. But now I do! [Laughs]
Us: Dave and Duncan joined you on this task, which involved a movie premiere, an after-party and a tiny pair of scissors. Who was the one who actually yanked out his hair?
JP: Honestly, it wasn’t a tackle and take down. We told him Rob we were dared to steal a lock of his hair and asked if he’d do it. He looked at me like I was crazy, but he ultimately said yes. We explained that it wasn’t something necessarily that we were asking him for, but we told him the truth that we were put up to it. I guess he considered it and figured one little hair wouldn’t hurt. He played along, which I commend him for. We chatted a little bit — he was with two friends.
Us: Do you know if Rob watches The Buried Life?
JP: I don’t know, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets asked about this. That would be cool if he watches. We could use a vampire on The Buried Life!
Us: So, do you prefer Rob bearded or clean-shaven?
JP: Well, No. 15 on our list [of 100 things to do before we die] is grow a moustache, so anybody who can cross that off before me I commend!
Us: So where did the hair end up? On eBay?
JP: We talked about exploding it out of a cannon, and Duncan joked about putting it under his pillowcase so he could sleep at night. We also considered using it to grow another Robert Pattinson, but none of those ideas panned out. I feel like we did the right thing with the hair in the end, which you’ll see on Monday’s show.
Theater Culture Magazine ”T”
English translation – Excerpt
“Robert is a ‘hot star’ among teens and likely expected to choose parts that his fans would expect.”
Rob: “I chose a part where people would see me as a human being. I don’t want to be typecast and wanted to be recognized as an individual. It’s not about public image, but about me continuing my career. I thought it was important to give a performance that would leave a different impression than those up to this point.”
The sudden rise of popular actors such as Robert Pattinson (and Zac Efron,Sam Worthington,James McAvoy) threaten to dethrone other sexy stars like Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt. That is because they have made clever plans to focus their careers along the same path that their predecessors have already traveled. They want to become something more than a flash-in-the-pan “sex symbol”, but actors whose popularity does not soon fade away.
Looking at things this way, “sexy” actors have a future of many possibilities ahead of them, so long as they ensure they are flexible. Without adhering to a single image, they delve into new projects and, together with the creators of these works, go on discovering new sides to themselves. It seems simple on the surface, but if they do not have a good grasp of who they are, there is no point to it at all.
Those actors who challenge themselves without limit will continually embody different images, which in turn will keep their audience excited and interested. Those actors who can make people think, “I want to see more and more of his movies!” are the ones who will become enduring “sex symbols”.
#6 Robert Pattinson
“I don’t want to look trendy, so I try to find clothes where somebody wouldn’t be able to say, ‘Oh, you’re a cool guy.”
Robert Pattinson, known for his role as Edward Cullen; is more than just an attractive vampire, yes I admit I was one of those girls who fell for Robert’s grungy chic style and was totally on the Edward Cullen band wagon for awhile myself. He has been labelled as a heart-throb for young teen girls with sex appeal for the older women since filming the Twilight series; status symbols he doesn’t quite get. Robert Pattinson’s messy hairstyle paired with his grunge fashion makes him that much more attractive to the ladies then just his scruffy facial hair alone. Besides his hair and masculine jaw line a couple of things that also caught a lot of fans eyes were his beautiful bluish-grey eyes and his height; us girls tend to like the taller boys after all.
But there is definitely more to Rob than his looks, he’s very down to earth, polite and charming and treats his fans with the respect they deserve. He knows without them he wouldn’t be where he is now with all their support. That’s why when he heard a group of fans couldn’t get tickets to see him on Oprah he made it a point to visit them personally just to bring them tickets and invite them to the show. Not only that, but while hanging out at local pubs and playing his guitar at open mic’s he is extremely polite and loves taking the time to give fans autographs and a quick picture if he’s not in too much of a hurry.Although, sometimes timid Robert Pattinson has been surprised to find out he was chosen to be on People Magazine’s 100 most beautiful list and Time’s 100 most influential, he is happy to be noticed and grateful to all of his fans for helping make him so popular. With all of your support he gets to do what he enjoys doing.
Why You Chose Him:
Elizabeth: Robert Pattinson at a very young age of 24 has a certain “je ne sais quoi” which definitively sets him apart from the rest. He is stunningly photogenic and oozing with sensuality and a charisma he has no idea he possesses. With a style that is an emanation from his own being, a posh accent, a sense of the absurd, great musical abilities, and a sweet funny quirky personality, disarming yet unassuming, all of which magnifies his uniqueness. He gives articulate insightful interviews, wise and mature beyond his years. A well-read young man with depth. The fans and paparazzis relentlessly pursue him and as exhausted as he appears by it all, he handles the circus that surrounds him with a good-natured grin and self-deprecating charm and a persona that draws the young and old. I am looking forward to the entertaining saga of Robert Pattinson.
