Moviefone has part ii of Robert Pattinson’s interview up. He mostly talks about his upcoming work in Little Ashes, but he also mentions the Taylor Lautner casting controversy.
“What was your take on the whole Jacob casting drama? When it was possible that Taylor Lautner wasn’t going to get the part.
It was weird. When I came back, I hadn’t seen him in ages, hadn’t seen him since the summer and when I saw him, I saw him just before he got casted, and he put on like 100 pounds! I was like “Jesus Christ! If he doesn’t get it, it’s ridiculous.” But what are you going to do? There was a video of him on set the other day doing all these kind of fight stunts. That kid is incredible; he is one of the most stunning athletes I’ve ever seen in my life. I don’t know, I think it’ll be interesting. I haven’t seen any of his stuff yet, but everyone’s going a little bit crazy over him.”
Radar Online also just reviewed Little Ashes and this is what they had to say:
“Little Ashes gives him a chance to show his range as Dali, who boomerangs between cocky confidence and insecurity. And not to worry—during the scenes set in the early 20s, Pattinson looks as dashing as ever in suits and slicked-back hair. Overall, Pattinson’s brooding good looks and intensity make the couple’s tortured love affair feel very real—just as they do in Twilight. Be prepared to shed a few tears in this flick!”
TY to Stacey for the link correction.
