Robert Pattinson - "Interview Magazine" October 2008

Robert Pattinson -

Michael Martin interviewed Robert Pattinson for the October 2008 issue of Interview Magazine (with James Franco on the cover). Here’s the article:

– Alert the tabloids: Harry Potter actor linked to drug house! Twenty-two-year-old Robert Pattinson fondly recalls his time living in a “cool little ex-crack den” in London with best friend Tom Sturridge. He’s joking (we think) about their bad behavior as struggling young actors. “We spent the better part of a year just getting drunk every night,” Pattinson admits. “I don’t know if that counts as ‘struggling.’” After the debauchery ended, Pattinson co-starred as Cedric Diggory in two Harry Potter movies. A former child model–he posed professionally from ages 12 to 15 (“when I stopped looking like a girl”)–Pattinson has been dubbed “the next Jude Law” in the British press. “I don’t really see the similarity,” he says. One opportunity to break out comes via next year’s Little Ashes, a Spanish drama in which Pattinson stars as the young Salvador Dali. But first, there’s the vampire thriller Twilight, based on the popular teen books, in which Pattinson plays Edward, a 108-year-old bloodsucker in love with a high school girl. Horror fans are already stalking him. “It’s funny,” Pattinson says, “because teenage girls would say,’ Oh my God, you’re Cedric!’ It switched in a week to ‘Oh, my God, it’s Edward!’ Allegiances change to freely in the teen-girl world.”

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    Nuff Said.

  • Jojo

    Well, there goes all of my respect…..
    *sigh* too bad, I was starting to think he was a really decent actor with morals intact and all…
    just my luck :(
    I’m still excited for the movie though.
    *crosses fingers*

  • Caitlin

    he is so refreshingly cool

  • maria

    Where did it show his morals being amputated in the article exactly?

    He just made a joke about what it means to be a struggling actor. I thought it was a funny response. I’d rather hear a snarky answer like that instead of hearing some overly self indulgent answer about how much he’s struggled for his art.

  • jen

    he’s one pretty fella

  • Cee

    Oh, hi.
    I love you.

  • corona

    RP is a really funny and handsome lush.

  • Bella Swan

    Dear Edward:

    It’s so ironic that you won’t even let me unbutton your buttons in bed when we haven’t even made it to first base. And yet you turn around and model for INterview Magazine wearing your pants all low Lil’ Wayne style. You are such a crotch tease.

  • Reneesme

    Dear Daddy:

    You may be Edward Cullen to everyone else, but you’ll always be “DILF” to me.



  • bels

    OH. MY. GOD.
    why ddint the pants just come off?

  • wow

    I was sorta hoping that friend of his was lurking in the background all unabomber style:

  • seriously

    instead of playing edward, he should play wolverine. His hair just does a natural wolverine already, it’s uncanny.


    HE IS HOT <3
    LOVE HIM !

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    OH god! Renesmee should totally not be thinking that! She’s got Jacob! And even though we all know that Edward is better Jacob is her soulmate bahaha

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    btw maria, totally agree! His humor is so sarcastic haha it’s great

  • lily

    wow, can that kid grow a five o’clock shadow in no time flat or what?

  • jan

    why is he in sweatpants, we know that he doesn’t workout….hahaha

  • june

    it would be so great to see Robert and Tom together in a movie….

  • Shannon

    OMFG!! the hottest i’ve ever seen him

  • Kourtney

    HAHAHA I laughed so hard at the Renesmee thing.

    his hair makes me melt. theres just something about his crazy hair that can drive any girl wild. seriously. not too found of the law pants but oh well.

    hes becoming a bigger and bigger star every day twilight gets closer to release. and he’s a pretty private and low key guy, hopefully he doesn’t become too overwhelmed!

  • amber

    Hahah the Renesmee thing was priceless.

    I do think Robert will do a great job as Edward. Obviously nothing will be better than the books but I’m still so damn excited for the movie!

  • helen

    How crap. He’s the sexiest actor in the whoel wide world

  • Jen

    he’d be a very sexy wolverine. pattinson is nearly too hot. Its a wonder the magazine pages dont burn up

  • Kristine

    Okay, he’s gorgeous, as usual. But I’m not digging the sleeveless shirt. His arms are lumpy.

  • alison

    Dont quite get what the photographer is getting him to do with his arms. He looks like pure sex though.

  • Hol

    You just know he’s brilliant in bed with a lot of imagination

  • nona

    hahah, lumpy. I wouldn’t call them lumpy. He’s just not a real naturally toned kind of dude, between the genetics and lack of gym time and all the coronas he’s probably smacking down with that bff. It’s okay, though, he doesn’t have to be toned or ripped though when he’s got that hair. The hair is the great neutralizer and equalizer.

  • sol

    So, how do you get a job as the chick who drops his pants down like that? I’d work for scale and everything.

  • pena

    IT’s funny how he can look so good one minute, and then the next minute he’s totally channeling the dueling banjos with that Tom dude. Those two sure know how to turn down the heat in terms of looks….

  • sunshine519

    that is HAWT.
