ShortList Interview with Robert PattinsonCast Interview Robert Pattinson
Jonathan Crocker spoke with Robert Pattinson about his career choices and his life. This is a quite comprehensive, informative, and fun interview. We’ve pulled excerpts entirely at whim, please visit the source for the interview at the link below, it’s worth your time.
In the most daring performance of his career, Pattinson plays a 28-year-old multibillionaire travelling across Manhattan in a stretch limo to get a haircut. By the end of the film, he’ll have destroyed everything he possesses to create an exciting, dangerous future.
“I think the script was so bizarre, we thought it was quite funny it was even getting made. Literally. It’s totally ridiculous.

But with the vampire saga due to end this year and Cronenberg hailing Pattinson a “profound” talent, Cosmopolis could mark the end of Pattinson’s frustrations and the start of a (sorry) breaking dawn.

Most of his fans won’t be old enough to buy a ticket.
“I think 26 is the turning point,” he says. “I’ve got to make up for 10 years of living like a degenerate. I’ve suddenly become conscious of being unhealthy. You’ve spent every bit of free time since [the age of ] 15 in a pub. And suddenly you’re like, ‘Oh God, I don’t want to be this grey ghost sitting there with a pot belly. I’ve got to get it together.’”
