‘Awkward’ Robert Pattinson on ‘The Rover’ Set

Robert-Pattinson-Awkward-Rover-Set-85

Robert Pattinson showed an entirely new acting range in the art-house action film The Rover.

This behind-the-scenes extra from The Rover DVD/Blu-Ray release (out now) gives a unique view of how Pattinson worked with acclaimed Australian director David Michôd.

Michôd (Animal Kingdom) had very little familiarity with Pattinson prior to casting him. He had never seen any of the Twilight films. But meeting Pattinson showed an “interesting” and “smart” young British actor.

“He was not what I was expecting. I thought he was going to be some teen heartthrob franchise guy. And he was this really endearing, slightly awkward, and obviously smart (person),” says Michôd.

The respect carried into the filming of this gritty story about two men looking for a stolen car in a post-apocalyptic world. The extra shows Pattinson convincing Michôd on the Australian set to give him another take of a scene.

Robert Pattinson also speaks about working with Michôd from the set while swatting away bugs.

The film, which also starred Guy Pearce, opened to raves at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

Pattinson was particularly non-heartthrob, caked in mud and with bad teeth for his role.

“I am trying to eliminate any bit of vanity,” Robert Pattinson told of his grimed-up role. “I want to avoid any opportunity to pose (for the camera). Or whatever. Because if you get that opportunity to pose, you will probably take it.”

5 Things To Know About Robert Pattinson’s New Girlfriend, FKA Twigs

Robert-Pattinson-New-Girlfriend-FKA-Twigs-93

It looks like Robert Pattinson may have a new lady in his life.

The Twilight star, 28, has been spending quality time with British singer FKA twigs.

“He is smitten,” a Pattinson pal says. Here are five things to know about the 26-year-old artsy stunner, whose debut album, LP1, is getting rave reviews.

1. She was born Tahliah Barnett.

Nicknamed “twigs” because of the way her joints crack, the singer added the acronym FKA (“Formerly Known As”) to her moniker because American pop duo The Twigs already snagged the name. “The only way I won’t have to change my name is if they say that I don’t have to,” she told Dazed about the snafu. “I’m not angry, but I do feel sad about it. I might call myself FKA tree trunk. Or FKA baby branches. Or IRL twigs.”

2. She’s half Jamaican and half Spanish.

As the only mixed-race girl in her school, “people said horrible things about something I had no control of, which was tough,” but she’s never had a problem with the way she looks. “Half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly,” she told Dazed. “The other half of my life I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating. Everything neutralizes.”

3. She grew up singing and dancing.

Growing up in the small town of Tewkesbury, FKA twigs “started getting interested in dancing and music because there isn’t very much else to do [there],” she told Pitchfork. “There was a youth club there with a low-key studio, and they’d have guys rapping, and I’d put the chorus down on the track.” The singer – whose mother was a salsa dancer – moved to London to attend dance school at 17 but dropped out after several weeks to pursue her music career.

4. She can be spotted dancing in a bunch of music videos.

Dancing in videos for pop stars like Kylie Minogue, Taio Cruz and Ed Sheeran, she is featured heavily in Jessie J’s “Do It Like A Dude” video, which has racked up nearly 80 million views on YouTube.

5. Like Pattinson, don’t expect her to dish on her personal life any time soon.

Though her new album explores various aspects of her beliefs (from gender politics to sex), she doesn’t like putting the spotlight on herself. “The idea’s the idea,” she told Billboard last month. “It’s about what you do, and not who you are.” Giving a peek into her romantic past, however, she revealed to The Guardian last month that she’s “had two or three serious relationships … [but] I haven’t had that ultimate relationship where something clicks and I’m like, ‘I get it now!’ I’m still learning.”

Twilight Fan Marries Cardboard Cut-Out of Robert Pattinson

Fan-Marries Cardboard-Robert-Pattinson-41

Brace yourselves, because we’re pretty sure today’s (and probably the month’s) news headlines just peaked.

A woman has married a life-size cardboard cut-out of Robert Pattinson. And while it’s all in the name of ‘art’ as part of a crowd-funded work looking at ‘the female escapist fantasy’, the dedication to the cause was still pretty phenomenal.

Lauren Adkins, 25, told the Daily Mirror about the way in which her ‘obsession’ with Twilight hearthrob Edward Cullen morphed from Twihard try-hard into a world of matrimonial possibility.

“People might think I’m crazy but my flat-pack R-Patz is the closest I’ll get to the real thing and he’s the one for me,” she said. “A friend who thought I was going mad said one night: ‘if you love him so much why don’t you marry him?’ Her words rang in my ears. She was right.”

Unsurprisingly, the nuptials were approved at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, and the event was all a bit special.

In fact, there was a hen party, a proper dress and engagement ring and even invitations sent out ahead of the ceremony, which 25-year-old Lauren carefully organised herself.

A proper ceremony that included a traditional minister, a champagne reception, five-tier cake and 50 guests, costing £2,000.

“I walked down the aisle in January in the white wedding dress I’ve always dreamt of,” she raved, before revealing the newlyweds went on to do all the typical newlywed things (although she thankfully stopped short of a full bedroom expose).

“We had our honeymoon in LA and I wanted us to climb up to the Hollywood sign together. I had to carry him.”

What do you think of Lauren and her cardboard cut-out? Sound off in the comments!

Robert Pattinson’s Sister Lizzy Sings on ‘X Factor UK’

Lizzy Pattinson audition The X Factor UK

Talent must run in the Pattinson genes.

It was reported back in July that Robert Pattinson’s sister Lizzy Pattinson had made it through a closed-door audition on The X Factor UK, and now she’s made it to broadcast.

During the episode airing Sunday night, Lizzy sang Bonny Raitt’s “Feels Like Home” for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh, and she made it through! Though we don’t get to hear the judges’ comments in the YouTube video, the UK’s Metro reports that Robert was not mentioned but Cowell did say that Lizzy looked familiar.

After asking if he’d met her before, multiple times, Lizzy reportedly quipped: “Perhaps in your dreams.”

R.Patz sang his big sister’s praises earlier this summer in an interview with Grazia Daily. “I’m ridiculously proud of her,” he said. “I would never have the guts to do that ever in a million years. I can’t believe she’s done it. It’s amazing.”

The 31-year-old personal assistant had previously contributed to the Twilight and Breaking Dawn: Part 1 soundtracks.

Robert Pattinson ‘smitten’ with British singer FKA Twigs

Robert-Pattinson-Dating-Rumors-2014

IF you listen closely, you can hear the sound of a million hearts breaking.

Robert Pattinson has reportedly been taken off the market by quirky, upcoming star FKA Twigs.

The British singer-songwriter, real name Tahliah Barnett, has been pictured out with the actor.

A source said to The Sun that the pair have been romantically involved for some time now.

They said: “It’s the real deal between Rob and Tahliah. They had been able to keep their relationship secret until recently, but they’re already smitten.

“He’s been taking her on dates for the last month or so, and has even flown her out to stay with him in New York. He also loves going to her gigs.

“The main thing for Tahliah is that the relationship remains low key. She wants to be known for her music, not just as ‘Robert Pattinson’s girlfriend’.

“She’s worried about being bogged down by constant comparisons to Kristen.”

The acting hunk famously dated his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart but they broke up after she cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders.

However he admitted that the affair no longer bothered him saying “s**t happens”.

Robert Pattinson shares passionate kiss with Mia Wasikowska in new trailer for Maps To The Stars

robert-pattinson-mia-wasikowska-kiss-2

Robert Pattinson is trying his best to shake off his “Twilight” image and a movie like “Maps To The Stars” is definitely going to get him in that direction.

The film focuses on the darker side of Hollywood celebrity culture where Pattinson, 28, plays a limo driver who gets his fair share of action. In the new trailer of David Cronenberg’s film, Pattinson shares a passionate kiss with co-star, Mia Wasikowska, who plays the character of Agatha Weiss.

In the movie trailer shown below, we see “The Hunger Games” actress, Julianne Moore, visibly upset as she sits listening to a voice message telling her that a part has been given to someone else. She chucks the photo in anger and yells in frustration.

The video gives a good preview of the madness in Hollywood and it’s trickling effects on the individuals who live in the culture, writes The Independent. The story is centered on the Weiss family, a Hollywood dynasty and the film gives us a glimpse of the dysfunctional lives and relationships that surround their home.

robert-pattinson-limo-maps-to-the-stars-8

As a limo driver, Pattinson’s character dreams of making it big in Hollywood and “was inspired by screenplay writer Bruce Wagner’s own experiences when starting out in Hollywood,” reported the news site.

“Jerome would never accept that he is just a limo driver. I think he feels he’s just waiting for his break,” quoted The Independent of Pattinson who spoke about his role.

Cronenberg and Pattinson have already worked together, their first being 2012’s “Cosmopolis.”

The plot of the film is as follows: “The Weiss family are an archetypical Hollywood dynasty – Dr Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a psychotherapist whose self-help books have made him a fortune. His wife Cristina (Olivia Williams) is the overbearing mom-ager of their thirteen-year old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a prodigious child star fresh out of drug rehab and their estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital. Agatha is now back in Hollywood making friends with a wannabe actor/writer limo driver named Jerome (Robert Pattinson) and with a new job as PA to one of Stafford’s clients – the neurotic and tempestuous actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), whose dream of reprising her dead mother’s starring role from the 1960s is beginning to haunt her.”

See Pattinson, Wasikowska, Moore and John Cusack in “Maps To The Stars” which will hit theaters on September 27th in the United States. It will be released in U.K. cinemas on September 26th.

Check out the full trailer below:

The Rover: 8 Things We Learned From Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce

the-rover-274

In David Michôd’s new film, the sci-fi tinged Aussie thriller ‘The Rover’, Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce play a pair of ne’er do wells who join forces in the outback as they hunt down the thieves who stole Pearce’s car.

It’s a gritty, sweat-drenched glimpse into a dystopian future where people scratch a living from the bush in a ‘post-collapse’ world. It’s a bit like ‘Mad Max’ without the crazy hair dos, shoulder pads, and smoke-spewing muscle cars.

Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce were in town to promote the film, but we thought we’d give them a break from the headline-hungry journos firing questions at them, and we let them interview each other.

Robert Pattinson based his character Rey on a kid he used to babysit for.

Robert-Pattinson-The-Rover-film-Gun

“His calves were too short, and he walked around in a funny way, and I thought about it consciously before when I was walking.”

Rob thinks people might hate him for being beautiful.

His character sings “Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful” in the film, but Pattinson jokes that he has haters for another reason in real-life.

“Really they hate me because I’m just better than them and they’re jealous! I’m cooler, better looking, just all round a better person and that’s probably why they hate me so much!”

Guy Pearce got badly sun burnt on set after falling asleep in the sun.

“We had a pool in Leigh Creek and I fell asleep,” explains Pearce, “I thought I was under the netting, but clearly that netting doesn’t work that well!”

Scoot McNairy went rustling on the shoot.

Scoot McNairy went rustling on the shoot.

“Scoot turned up on a scooter, which disappeared,” says Pattinson of the actor who plays his brother in the film, “He turned up at the pub on a horse! And we were like ‘Where did you find a horse?’ And he was like ‘I just found it! It was tied up’”

“You just stole someone’s horse? Take it back!”

Rob LOVES ‘Lawless’ and… ‘The LEGO Movie’?

“I really like you in ‘Lawless’,” says Rob when quizzed on his favorite films of Guy’s, “The more I see it, the more I like it too. I’ve seen it like three times now, in the last few weeks.”

“Not as many times as you’ve seen ‘The LEGO Movie’ though?” prompts Guy.

“It’s getting up to ‘LEGO Movie’!” says Rob. “It’s amazing!”

Rob doesn’t remember working with James Franco.

“Someone was asking me the other day, ‘Oh you just worked with James Franco…’ And I said – ‘No I haven’t!’”

“And then I realised that I HAVE worked with him. It was the last movie I did! That was embarrassing.”

the-rover-328

Rob isn’t picky when it comes to choosing his roles.

“I genuinely choose [my roles], because they’re the only ones I get offered. Pretty much, the jobs I did after ‘Twilight’ are just the jobs I got offered.”

“I just happened to get outré jobs.”

Guy hasn’t hung out his Neighbours co-stars Kylie Minogue for a while.

“I did have breakfast with Kylie recently when we were in Cannes. I bumped into Kylie, which was the first time we’d seen each other in about 17 years.”

“I looked considerably older. She hasn’t changed a bit.”

Robert Pattinson Completed The Ice Bucket Challenge

rob-pattinson-ice-bucket-challenge_als

The Ice Bucket Challenge continues! He may not have a Twitter or an Instagram, but Robert Pattinson was summoned to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge — and he managed to make it work.

Fellow celebrity Zac Efron gave Robert Pattinson 24 hours to pour a bucket of icy water on his head and the “Twilight” star completed the task, as shown in a video posted to Efron’s YouTube and Twitter pages. But since Pattinson “couldn’t find a bucket,” he improvised and had a friend pour a small pot of ice cubes on his head while another sprayed him with a hose. The only thing is, his pals kept throwing ice cubes at him and spraying him with the hose.

The 28-year-old nominated Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska and Marilyn Manson, because, why not. Let’s see if/when/how they complete the challenge.

According to a recent report, the Ice Bucket Challenge has already raised an astounding $22.9 million all of which has been donated in the past three weeks. If you would like to learn more about the Ice Bucket Challenge or would like to donate to the ALS Association, visit their website ALSA.org.
