Pattinson didn’t necessarily try to move away from Twilight by taking on roles in Cosmopolis or Bel Ami.
Cosmopolis simply felt really really new to him.
“David is an adjective” (Pattinson on getting to work with Cronenberg)
Cosmopolis was a project that was hard for Pattinson to say no to, despite the scale of his role.

“I just spent the whole movie in perpetual terror (talking about the rollercoaster of very established fellow cast members)
“It’s tactile, it’s physical… and gradually you find the right way to shoot the movie” Cronenberg on being spontaneous with cinematography
“It’s organic and it comes from the material itself”, Cronenberg continues on how his films come together
Cronenberg going into detail about the fine art references (Jackson Pollock and Rothko) in Cosmopolis
Cannes was incredibly exciting this time for Cronenberg, as his son’s film was also screened there.
Cronenberg would love to see Pattinson and Mortensen in a film together – “would be sensational”
And then it’s over to the audience for questions!
“I don’t like repeating myself” – Pattinson on choosing film roles
“I don’t think I’d been more afraid in my career” – Pattinson on the first screen test in the limo; felt like throwing up
A lot of the horror scripts Cronenberg gets offered these days seem either like rip-offs or remakes of his previous films.

“None of it’s awkward if u think it’s going to be good afterwards” Pattinson on filming some of the scenes in Cosmopollis
“And I’ve done more awkward things in my real life” – Pattinson
