There’s finally a good translation up of the full interview conducted in the French publication. Lots of sites are taking partial quotes and words out of context. We’ve seen everything from “Robert Pattinson says Twilight movies are total crap, to Robert Pattison thanks Cronenberg for saving career”…read and judge for yourself. Here’s some of what Robert Pattinson actually had to say (unedited) about the Twilight experience, but the entire interview is well worth the read.
P: I recommend David to see the last Twilight movie, that is almost ‘Cronenbergian’ at some times …
RP: *laughs* I can’t believe there’s still one more to come (Breaking Dawn Pt 2 is out November 14th) and I have some reshoots to do in a few days.
P: You thought Twilight was behind you?
RP: Yes, I’m not the same as I was at the beginning. First, I’m older … When I have to go on the makeup chair, I see all those wrinkles that came with time, it’s scary. I thickened/filled out too. Since I didn’t have any clothes when we shot the first movie, I stole some from the movie when we done and I can fit any them anymore!
PREMIERE: The Cosmopolis teaser had the effect of a bomb on the internet…
ROB: I’ve been doing movie for 8 years & I’ve been criticized often & all of a sudden, this teaser is released & everyone is excited. “It looks great! His acting is good in it!” It’s ridiculous! It’s what makes you understand how the critical mind of some people work.
PREMIERE: Most of the critics said you sucked without having seen you in any movies. And you were good in Twilight!
ROB: In some scenes maybe… I tried anyway.. I’d like to ask a question to those people who think I just started acting well: What do you think I was doing in twilight? Do they think it’s how I act naturally? No, I had to take decisions as an actor. I find it funny when I read stuff like (He uses a dramatic voice) “Will Cosmopolis finally prove that he can act?” What does that even mean?
