Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson, rumoured to be back with his ex-Kristen Stewart, is keeping things out of the public eye this time.

Pattinson feels that he needs to protect his privacy, but Stewart does not feel the same. She wants to be normal with him, the way they used to be.

“She wants to go to concerts and other places with him, like they used to. Rob on the other hand, is being a lot more cautious and isn’t ready to have everyone know his business when it comes to who he’s dating,” sources close to the couple stated.

Pattinson appears unwilling to go public about the reconciliation.

“Rob doesn’t want to hide his relationship with Kristen but doesn’t see an alternative right now. Concealing their relationship is Rob’s way of protecting their relationship,” a source stated.

Stewart apparently is willing to compromise on this aspect due to the respect she has for Pattinson.

“He has been very adamant with Kristen to keep everything hush-hush between them, and even though Kristen wants to go public, out of respect for Rob, she will continue to keep their love for each other to themselves – at least for the time being,” the source added.

The couple have been spotted together at several places of late.

Reports also suggest that the couple checked into a hotel in Palm Springs, California, for a few nights in order to spend some quality time together.

”They snuck away to one of their favourite hide-outs for a couple of nights. Both left their houses in LA under cover of darkness and Rob brought their two dogs as well. They’re not back together yet but they desperately miss each other,” a source told The Sun.

”Kristen still loves him and the ball is in his court. She drives him crazy but at the same time he can’t seem to break things off.”

Pattinson and Kristen Stewart split a second time after she got back in touch with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. All hell reportedly broke loose between the perfect pair last year when Stewart confessed to having an affair with Sanders behind Pattinson’s back. She later apologised.

Has Robert Pattinson found a new leading lady?

Four months after splitting up with on-again, off-again girlfriend Kristen Stewart, the actor, 27, has been linked to model Dylan Penn.

“They’ve been dating a month or two,” a Pattinson source confirms to PEOPLE. “He’s crazy about her.”

The blonde beauty, 22, has quite the Hollywood pedigree: She’s the daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright.

According to media reports, Pattinson and Penn were spotted on Sept. 7 catching a show by rapper Mickey Avalon at the famed Viper Room in Los Angeles.

They then reportedly hightailed it to the Chateau Marmont for post-show drinks and bites.

Speculation has been swirling about whom Pattinson would date next following his split with Stewart. He was also recently seen with trainer Sydney Liebes outside Harley Pasternak’s gym, where she works. But a second source shoots down any insinuation that the two are an item, telling PEOPLE that “Pattinson has trained with Liebes a few times in Harley’s absence and that’s it.”

In May, Pattinson and Stewart, 23, called it quits after more than three years of dating, their relationship having weathered intense strain and scrutiny following her fling with her marriedSnow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.

The two had attempted to patch things up following her cheating scandal, attending Coachella and celebrating her 23rd birthday together before ultimately calling things off. On May 21, Pattinson was seen moving his belongings out of Stewart’s Los Angeles home.

Robert Pattinson describes the type of woman he finds attractive and how it relates to his feelings about fashion in a new interview, and his answers may shock you. It’s totally contrary to the prattle from gossip sites that make up most of their news.

With the release of his new Dior Homme fragrance campaign this month, Rob is going through a bit of a transition in his career.

He’s much more secure about who he is. And, with the “Twilight” hoopla finally fading, he’s starting to come up for some air and expand his interests. The end of his relationship with Kristen Stewart also factors into the equation, but not like most of the fake gossip sites have been reporting.

“Yeah, it’s a whole bunch of stuff happening at the same time, and I am just not worrying about things so much,” he says in a new interview with the Arabian edition of Harper’s Bazaar. “I guess it just happens,” he adds.

The breakup has also helped him focus inwardly on himself, and discover new interests. “I also bought a house and I was literally doing that up and fixing pipes,” he says.

Rob also lets it be known he hasn’t given up on love; it just has to be with the right person. And who would that be? Read more…

Robert Pattinson, The Phoenix

Is there a life after Twilight? That’s the question the actor is trying to answer to, filming in art-house cinema and working with Dior.

“The most important thing is to be cool”. After 5 years spent in the eye of the Hollywood cyclone, Robert Pattinson finally got it. It did not appear to him like this while walking his dog in Los Angeles. We always sensed a sort of uneasiness when talking to him. And even Robert himslef had some trouble hiding (maybe he’s not really trying) that he wasn’t really fit for the movies he was idolized for. “Playing in movies that you would never go see, it complicates things, it’s hard to talk about it, hard to promote it, hard to connect with the public. Until I met David Cronenberg who hired me for Cosmopolis, I always felt like I just fell into roles, that I didn’t really get to choose. I was trying not to sink. For the first time, I felt like I had been chosen for my talent. David gave me confidence. It changed how I see myself as an actor.”

Not the best moment to become the face of an important perfume brand, lend his face (for a lot of money) to Dior Homme and see his image on every billboards around the world? Well, not really. Of course, Dior is not the first to solicit Rob Patz. Before, others certainly thought about making money off of the huge popularity of the Twilight actor. But it seems like the honorable French house found the right words to convince him. Well, more like the right word : freedom. Pattinson used it to realize his dream : shooting with Romain Gravas, a French underground and talented director who alternated between the super cool (the music video “Bad Girls” with M.I.A) and the super controversial (the music video “Stress” with Justice). “It’s been a while since I have been trying to contact him and he wasn’t answering my calls. When Dior approached me, I told myself “I’m sure he would like to work with me if I was offering a Dior commercial””. Bingo! Gavras accepted the challenge and restored the actor’s image looking for an artistic legitimacy while helping Dior building a successful campaign.

     

The movie he directed is indeed a champagne bobble, a concentrate of coolness with sixties influence in which Rob and model Camille Rowe are being playful, smoke cigarettes, drive carelessly an old BMW convertible on the beach… A very New Wave atmosphere, seductive and fresh. Like a groupie, the actor expresses his admiration for Gravas the anarchist : “He sees the world in a complete different way. he’s very confident. I am more neurotic, it’s irritating but at the same time, my insecurity is the only thing I find interesting about myself”.

I’ve added new pictures of Robert Pattinson took his time off to visit kids at Children’s Hospital on August 16, 2013. He is such a sweet person!

WeTreatKidsBetter.org – On Friday, Aug. 16, Robert Pattinson, actor and star of mega-hit movies “The Twilight Saga” and “Water for Elephants” dropped by Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to spread cheer and visit with patients.

Teens from across the hospital—including the Acute Rehabilitation Center, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases and The Heart Institute—gathered in the hospital’s Teen Lounge for a surprise guest. When Pattinson arrived, one young girl giggled and cried in awe. But the down-to-earth actor quickly settled the room and jumped into arts and crafts, decorating picture frames alongside patients. Pattinson laughed at his own creation—a pink frame with hearts sketched in—and tried unsuccessfully to convince the room of his “terrible” artistic skills.

The star graciously posed for endless photographs and signed every patient’s picture frame before heading off to visit two cystic fibrosis patients and huge Twilight fans who were unable to leave their rooms.

“We couldn’t help laughing and smiling when one of the patients was so starstruck she that couldn’t speak. You could tell it meant the world to her—she was tearing up and smiling ear to ear as we were leaving,” said Lyndsay Hutchison, senior public information officer at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “The other little girl teased him relentlessly and begged him to do an American accent. They were instant friends.”

“Robert was so nervous about meeting the kids—he didn’t want to let them down—which is a testament to how humble he is. He was incredibly gracious and kind. He will probably never fully understand what a huge lift he gave to these kids today, and how it will positively impact them over the long term,” shared Child Life specialist, Ana Vega.

Pattinson was able to visit the hospital because an upcoming movie, “Maps to the Stars,” which Pattinson is currently filming in Los Angeles will feature a short scene (not featuring Pattinson) in front of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Keep an eye out for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles when the film hits theaters!

I’ve added new promotional shoots of Robert Pattinson posed for ‘Dior’. Also, a translated interview from Interview magazine, Germany has been posted after the thumb previews. It’s worth the read! Thanks to @KStewandRPatz for the translation!

Rob: I hope it doesn’t bother you that I smoke?

Interviewer: What do you smoke?
My e-cigs. I’ve been trying to quit for quite some time now but this one here is pretty unique: each cigarette can be smoked for as long as it would take you to finish to packs of cigs. And, um, if it stops glowing, you just throw it away. Just like with real cigarettes. I like that. Do you want one?

Sure.
And?

I like everything that smokes.
These are extremely strong. I constantly drive to 7-Eleven and get new ones. You can even smoke these things on the airplane. Oh God, I sound like a salesman for e-cigs.

When you should be doing some promo for Dior. How does it feel to be the new face of Dior Homme?
Actually, I never wanted to do advertisements.

…and then one morning you ran out of perfume?
I don’t use perfume!

Are you allowed to say that?
When I was 13 or 14 I always used perfume, but today, not anymore. At the time I probably thought it would give me some kind of adult touch. So it was important, until the first stubble appeared.

The director Romain Gavras just said you would have crashed the BMW while shooting.
what? We agreed he wouldn’t say anything! And I didn’t even total the car..

What happened?
I was supposed to drive along a six meter long (ca. 19,5 feet) stripe of sand 100km/h (ca. 60 mp/h) while at the same time, the waves came in, and I just slipped. After that the car, the models, and I drowned in mud full of algae.

Did you confess that to your dad?
Because of the models? No, why?

I thought you father dealt with oldtimers.
Oh, shit, that’s right. I had hoped the BMW wouldn’t be considered old. By the way, after the first Twilight movie, I drove the same model in black. The car didn’t cost more than 1000 bucks – it didn’t make it very long but it’s considered a classic today. Thank God, dad is retired by now.

The scene where it looks like you and the model would smoke pot, that wasn’t the one you were shooting just before that one, was it?
No, I didn’t. (laughs)

Did Roman Gavras had to do a lot of editing until the pictures fit with the public image of Dior?
Well, the joint wasn’t real.

The girl was, however.
Maybe there will be a director’s cut one day, one in which the audience is allowed to see her breasts. Oh, no, I take that back – what a horrible comment to make.

After all, the audience loves to see you a lot more than the naked girl.
Pff. Read more…

Translated Interview

“My favorite stories are the dark ones, where there’s no hope”

He’s given a turn in his life. He’s broken up with Kristen Stewart and focused on his career. Now he only does auteur films. The actor and new face of Dior talks to S Moda exclusively.

He didn’t put the audience in his pocket. Neither did he understand it. But he did wake up a very feminine instinct: the maternal one. That was not Robert Pattinson’s night. The british 27 year old, got up on the stage of the Soho House, a private Los Angeles club, to talk about his first luxury firm: Dior. Around 30 international media, including this magazine, had attended the premiere of 1000 Lives, the commercial for Dior Homme that Pattinson stars in (online at dior.com on September 1). “I am incapable of seeing an audience as such. In my eyes they’re all individuals and in my head I try to have a conversation with each of them. That’s impossible.” He apologizes the next day sitting on a couch in the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The actor recovers his confidence. Goodbye to shyness. And out of place laughter. During face to face, Pattinson –with beard, a hat, jeans and tshirt – measures time and words. And he inspires instinct very different to the maternal ones.

He doesn’t like to talk about his private life, or his earlier years as a model. His purpose: to build a solid career, leaving behind the labels of it boy and mass phenomenon, “If I could go to Cannes every year, I’d be fine with lower income. I’d like all of my movies to go through that festival.” He assures us. And he’s serious. His first attempts after the Twilight Saga were: Water for Elephants (2011) and Bel Ami (2012), they didn’t rescue him from the mainstream circuit. However, Cosmopolis (2012), David Cronenberg’s film, did. “It was nothing like anything I’d done before, and I loved that.” He admits. What’s coming is even better. Mission: Blacklist (Jasper Granslandt), The Rover (David Michod), Queen of the Desert (W. Herzog) and Maps to the Stars, Cronenberg’s upcoming film. “It’s more accessible than Cosmopolis, although not as much as A History of Violence. The script is dark. I find it funny, but you have to have a very unique sense of humor to see it that way: it’s not a comedy.”

His ability to capture irony is probably, in part, because of his English roots. Pattinson grew up in Barnes, southwest of London. When he was a kid, his sisters dressed him up as a girl. His appearance – a bit feminine, then- didin’t distune. Little of that is left – blue eyes, framed by never-ending lashes and certain delicacy. But a lot of his modeling past. His mother, model agent, introduced him to it and Robert posed until he was 16 years old. Then he got a worm for acting and since his role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), he hasn’t stopped. Critics agree, he’s not just a pretty face.

One of your upcoming projects is ‘Queen of the Dessert’ by Werner Herzog. Are you only interested in auteur filmmaking? (Note: there is no proper translation for this question, by auteur filmmaking, it refers to films where the director plays a huge part in the writing process, normally his own scripts)
I want to work with geniuses. I’m trying to recreate my favorite film list from when I was seventeen. I met Werner, we talked, and two weeks later he offered me the role of Lawrence of Arabia. We start shooting at the end of this year.

You didn’t have many releases in 2013. But its raining roles for you. For The Rover, a modern western, you spent two months in an Australian town covered in dust, sweating and surrounded by flies. It’s not a very encouraging setting.
We shot in the dessert. My character breaks his teeth, bleeds, gets spread with mud. On set, nobody made an effort to look hot, just the opposite from Twilight. I’d never been in a film without my shirt on because I’m embarrassed, but in this one, I barely ever have it on. Read more…

Interview Translation

Rob, what’s going on?

Robert Pattinson, Twilight star and face of the new Dior Homme campaign, explains why he wears suits only once, what he likes to spend money on and why Bernadette is his true love.

Robert Pattinson, looking suave with short hair and in a black designer suit, is kissing model Camille Rowe with so much passion, you’d think there’s something going on between the two of them for real. Maybe this sexy production to introduce him as the new face of Dior Homme is meant as a farewell to his Twilight-love Kristen Stewart: passionate, unconventional, surrounded by half-naked beauties. A clever move from Dior and a change of image for Rob. From teen-idol to man. During the interview at the Beverly Hills Hotel he’s still hungover from last night’s premiere-party. Dressed in Nike sneakers, Jeans and Acne shirt, with cap and scruff, his electronic cigarette at the ready. But he’s hardly ever been in such a good mood. Does he prefer the single-life to togetherness? “There’s no good answer to that question” he says. For others, it seems, there are.

Q: As soon as you have left Twilight behind you, you´re having the next generation swoon as a model for Dior Homme. Have you come to terms with your sex-symbol status?
A: (laughs) It was a deliberate move. I’m older now. Until last year, I felt like a child, self-conscious and insecure. Everything seemed to just happen to me, I was simply very lucky. My ego had to catch up with that, too. But now I have a career to plan.

Q: Where are you heading?
A: I’d like to keep making “obscure” movies, but I also have to stay on the radar to finance these indie-projects. Sure, after Twilight I could have just done the next big studio-thing, but I thought that Dior is so classy. I’ve never really played a truly masculine, erotic character.

Q: You could take a break for a year. Or go back to London.
A: London isn’t the same place for me anymore. The last time I really lived there, in my own appartement, was six years ago and meanwhile, almost all my friends have moved to New York and only my family is left. Read more…

Back From The Dead

Goodbye vampire. Robert Pattinson starts a new career. With movies in Cannes and as the face of Dior.

French; wherever you go, all you hear is French. That is rare in the “Beverly Hills Hotel” but the whole Dior crew flew in. This noon, everything is about the new star of the Dior Homme campaign, Rober Pattinson. Former Twilight superstar, teen sensation comparable to Justin Bieber, and now on his way to a new life as a grown up actor with successes in Cannes. Pattinson is nervous, not a cool guy. He used to smoke but these days are over. Yet on the sofa next to him, there still are four boxes of cigarettes. He plays with the cig, bounces his hand. Maybe everyone would be nervous if they start their second worldwide career at the age of 27.

Mister Pattinson, you’ve been chewing on this cigarette for a while now. Is is made of chocolate or gum?
That would be really embarrassing. It’s actually an electronic cigarette.

Why don’t you smoke anymore?
It had to stop. Just like the time as a Twilight vampire.

Non-smoker and short hair. Aren’t things like that clear indicators for the next career step?
My hair probably speaks for itself and I don’t really have to say anything. I wonder why people are so obsessed with my hair. In a TV-show Heidi Klum once even said “Hey Robert, how can you make your hair look good like that?”

Have you ever had bad hair?
A tacky ponytail; combed back with vaseline. And tons of parfume on top of that. It was all too much. I’d say at the time I wasn’t a real man.

Well, we can assume you are one now. In the advert for Dior Homme you seem to have some similiarities with Jean-Paul Belmondo in Breathless?
I really just wanted to play a guy who has some kind of sensibility but still loves to be free. I think it’s rather embarrassing if men act too manly.

When you were young, as a model, you almost looked like a girl. Didn’t that bother you?
No, I was simply young. I did it to meet girls, without thinking of any kind of career. I had a pretty “from-hand-to-mouth” understanding of life; someone takes a picture of me and I get 20 Pounds for it. Read more…
