ARTICLE: Robert Pattinson talks ‘Cosmopolis’ in Vanity Fair

From the April 2011 issue of Vanity Fair, Robert Pattinson briefly mentions Cosmopolis:

He’s hoping that he can transition into a new persona – Rob Pattinson, serious actor – with increasingly sophisticated roles. He was recently cast in David Cronenberg’s next film, Cosmopolis, an adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel. “That’s the thing I was worried about,” he says, “that people wouldn’t take me seriously enough to do movies like that, and I just got one.”

You did just get one, Rob, and we support the shift 100%. 🙂

Vanity Fair will be on stands March 3rd.

    I haven’t read the article yet due to my stupid restrictions at work PC..but from comments I’ve read on other blogs..people are bashing..of course..
    The only way we can tell him how we feel is to buy his movie tickets which I will continue to do until the day I die..which may be on March 3rd!

      Yeah, people are bashing! Because he is Rob, I guess.. the article focus in his “reluctant star” persona till the point that the people that don’t get his way of speaking or what he is talking about will say he is complaining but he knows that is going to be the reaction toward the article at the last bit of it, because after explaining he gets shout in the street “F**k you!” and people wanting to beat him up , like men in bars, etc, he says “you are not really allowed to complain about any of this”.. “you´re just supposed to be grateful. And obviously- I get it. You´re lucky and you should appreciate your luck…. It jut seems if you even hint that there´s a bad side to any of this people will be like – Liar!”

      But on the other hand by the things he said, like he was trying to write an adaptation of a script and things like that… the best that could happen to him is to work with Cronenberg.

      • i agree….working with Cronenberg is a fantastic movie for him professionally and possibly emotionally.
