The 27-year-old star opens up about what’s next in his career and his personal approach to relationships to Australia’s Sunday Style.
Robert Pattinson doesn’t exactly forgive and forget.
The 27-year-old actor opened up in a new interview with Australia’s Sunday Style about his relationships, his career and anxiety on the red carpet.
“I don’t ever feel the need to forgive or expect people to be. I judge people on their actions. I don’t really care if it’s wrong or right, I give them the benefit of the doubt. If they do something I can’t be bothered to deal with, I just cut them out,” said Pattinson, who split with “Twilight” costar Kristen Stewart in May — nearly a year after her public cheating scandal.
“There’s not very much that really bothers me.”
Pattinson went on to talk about the relationships he does have.
“I’m quite sensitive, and I do like a bit of grand gesturing, but that’s just my ego. I like to give people presents and I think of myself as the best gift giver, but only because I get stuff for myself and then make it work for the other person,” he explained.
The star’s explosive rise to fame started with his lead role as teen vampire heartthrob, Edward Cullen, in the “Twilight Saga” but he told the mag he wants to “get out of being perceived as really young.”
“I’m 27 now and I can feel people looking at me differently, it’s a weird year. With Twilight ending and other films I’ve done, like ‘Cosmopolis,’ I suddenly feel like I’m being treated like an actual actor.”
Despite his success, he admitted he still gets very nervous around the glitz and glamour of Hollywood red carpet events.
“I get a ton of anxiety, right up until the second I get out of the car to the event, when suddenly it completely dissipates. But up until that moment I’m a nut case,” he said.
“Body dysmorphia, overall tremendous anxiety. I suppose it’s because of these tremendous insecurities that I never found a way to become egotistical. I don’t have a six pack and I hate going to the gym. I’ve been like that my whole life. I never want to take my shirt off. I’d prefer to get drunk.”

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…
According to Screen Daily, Robert Pattinson is set to star as Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and also Dane DeHaan will play James Dean in Anton Corbjin’s Life.
Luke Davies wrote the screenplay to Life, which chronicles the friendship that ensued when the straight-laced Stock embarked on a road trip with Dean in 1955 for a Life magazine commission. Filming is scheduled to commence production in February 2014 on location in Canada.

Enough of vampires, werewolves and sugary romances. The british actor Robert Pattinson, who earned worldwide fame and millions of dollars to star in the five instalments of The Twilight Saga is completely redirecting his career to more dense and original projects. His most recent choices have been critically acclaimed, as are his performances.
The starting point of this transition was the movie Cosmopolis, by David Cronenberg, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012. In this talkie film, he plays Eric Packer, an expert in the world of finances, who spends his time inside a limo, receiving unusual visitors, whilst a major crisis erupts outside the car.
Bel Ami (which premiered in Brazil in 2012), based on the work of Guy de Maupassant, starring Uma Thruman; Mission: Blacklist (in pre-production), where he plays a soldier who helps in the hunt of Saddam Hussein; and The Rover (shot this year), where he portrays a mentally disturbed man, are other great examples of the actor’s current phase. Last july he started filming a new movie with Cronenberg, Maps To The Stars, a mixture of drama and black humor, inspired by society’s obsession with the celebrity industry.
And the news don’t stop there: The boy who started doing theater at 15 years old, in Barnes Theatre Company, and had a brief modelling career is the new face of the fragrance Dior Homme. To represent such an important brand and be able to work with partners he admire (the photographer Nan Goldin and filmmaker Romain Gavras) were the necessary fuel he needed to jump on this “wild” adventure, in his own words, inspired by James Dean’s quote: “Dream as you’ll live forever. Live as you’ll die today.” Check out the interview:

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”.
