Le Figaro: How does it feel to be at Cannes?
Rob: It’s crazy. I was at the screening of On the Road the evening before yesterday. It was intense. At every scene, I felt terrified, blown away, captivated. On the Road and Cosmopolis are kind of similar in a way, they talk about a journey. They’re road movies. In a way, they talk about the same thing, freedom, this desperate attempt to look from something different than the sad daily reality.
LF: You and Kristen Stewart, both actors from the Twilight Saga, are in competition at Cannes. Is that a game, a coincidence or a challenge?
Rob: I don’t think of it as a challenge. I admit that it’s really strange. The year when Twilight ends, Kristen and I end up in Cannes … For me, Cannes is the most important competition in the world. When I was a kid, even before I knew I wanted to be an actor, I would rent DVDs with the Palme logo on it to impress my friends. As an actor, you dream that one day all your movies could have that logo on their DVD cases. My secret goal was to one day be invited at the Festival. I thought it could happen in 10 years and it happens now! I think the phone call I got to tell me that Cosmopolis was selected for the official competition, was one of the happiest moments of my life.
LF: What push you to make this movie?
Rob: The script. I read it in half an hour. It was perfect. The only thing that terrified me was that the fear that I could screw everything up. What helped me decide too was the conversation I had with David Cronenberg. I asked him why he chose me and he answered: ‘I don’t know!’. Then, I asked him if he understood anything about the script and he simply told me that he didn’t but that it wasn’t important. I hesitated for a week then I called him back one night, almost in tears: ‘I want to do it, as soon as possible!’ Read more…

According to Cosmopolis Frech Twitter & Facebook page, the movie will release a trailer tomorrow. The official selection of 65th Festival de Cannes will finally be revealed at the Official Press Conference in Paris at 11AM local time (5AM EST). Thanks to pattinsonlife for the new!
Robert Pattinson’s co-star in “Cosmopolis”, Sarah Gadon mentions Robert & Cosmopolis to Filler Magazine.
A critique on celebrity culture, Antiviral, which co-stars up-and-comer, Caleb Landry Jones (seen later this year in Byzantium starring British A-listers Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, Jonny Lee Miller and Sam Riley) was the ideal successor to the pop culture-laden Cosmopolis. “Coming off of the film with David and Rob, it really got my wheels turning about the whole idea of cultural phenomenon, pop stars [and] celebrity-ism.”
Having been plunged into the media shark tank/celebrity blogosphere last summer by rumours circulating about an off-screen romance with co-star Robert Pattinson during the production of Cosmopolis, Gadon knows something of the cultural phenomenon that is R. Patz. “You’d have to be living under a rock not to realize the far reach of his fan base.” Quick to deny the rumours and highlight the brevity of their working relationship (“I get asked so frequently about Rob and working with him, but we didn’t spend very much time together…we did our scene and then left.”), it’s evident the actress is combating the gravitation pull of the R. Patz orbit. “It’s kind of like this whole different force beyond it. I really honestly feel like I exist on a different planet than he does…I do,” she trails off, laughing. “I don’t live in that world…I go home…living in my bachelor apartment, taking the TCC, reading my school work…it’s weird.”
One Tweet from our photo shoot with the actress alerted a mass of Twilight fans across the globe on the hunt for any morsel of information leading them back to the whereabouts of their deity, something Gadon has becoming familiar with since opening her own Twitter account this January. “My Twitter account is open so anyone can follow me, and it’s really not particularly interesting. I tweet things like ‘Going to New York!’ and I have like R. Patz Venezuela saying, ‘Have a great trip’….it’s so bizarre.”
Asked if her glimpse of R.Patz fandemonium has since made her more protective of her personal life, a reverent Gadon insists: “I just don’t think I will ever achieve that sort of fame. It’s reserved for the teen heartthrobs, it doesn’t exist for us ‘normies.’” There’s no feigned humbleness when Gadon shrugs off any possibility of becoming a cultural icon, though readers would do better wagering the opposite, judging from the momentum of the actress’s rising star.

Below is an extract quote of “Cosmopolis” director, David Cronenberg speaks about Robert Pattinson during his interview with “Interview” magazine!
CRONENBERG: Well, a benign dictatorship, I think, is what it’s supposed to be on a film set. But Rob Pattinson, who stars in the film I just shot, Cosmopolis, was commenting on that, too. He was saying that because he’s done these Twilight movies, he was sort of astonished that I could just make a decision right there on the set and that was it. But for me, that’s business as usual, of course.
Below is an excerpt of Danuel Radcliffe talks about Robert Pattinson during an interview with Premiere France.
I have a weird relationship with fame. It’s hard to live sometimes but I don’t want to complain. People are nice with me and I think it comes with the way you handle things.
For example, I think it’s totally different from what Rob (Pattinson) lives. He’s a guy I like a lot – and no I do not have his cell phone number, I say this because it’s always the first thing people ask me. He’s a sex symbol. He’s sexy and just need to do his brooding look for girls to fall. He has the perfect height to seduce girls, I’m the total opposite (laughs). He might be charming and cute, wild and sexy .. I do not have this kind of status, just look at pictures in the press. When we’re put side by side, I look a little silly or I make faces whereas Rob always looks like a ladies’ man. Therefore it doesn’t help me when it comes to the ladies. Maybe because now that they grew up with me they consider me more like a big brother than a potential boyfriend.
