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.”

    Holly mother of god he’s hot. Still rather the cleaned up look though.

  • Carolyn

    Dont get what the photographer was up to but Rob woul dbe sex on legs hanging upside down.

  • Kate

    I hope th EW cover which he will be on the front of of by himself is a smart looking one. I dont think this pose makes any sense. I suppose Rob is stuffed if he gets asked to pose in odd ways.

  • Kate

    The dualing bongos comment was funny. But must admit I wish he’d clean up his act.

  • Kate

    I think I’d faint from shock if he ever went to the gym

  • judith

    You do jut want to throw him on a bed and have your wicked way with him. Those pants are asking to be yanked off.

  • SSE

    DAMN!
    He’s fine, I’d love to tap that

  • judi

    We need the next photo.. where the pants are actually off

  • Andrea

    Oh man, he’s so HOT.

  • Erica

    My jaw just hit the floor. I need to mop up all the drool. Wow he’s sizzling hot.

  • Erica

    I’d love to see the shot face on too.

  • Erica

    What’s the photographer up to with the arms though.

  • Joanna

    He’s a complete stranger but I want to jump on top of him and do naughty things.

  • Joanna

    Love that vest. Hope he got to keep it.

  • sandy

    OMG I’ve just DIED. Rob you turn me on like no other film star

  • sandy

    Thanks Jared

  • Tania

    Sexiest picture ever. Raw sex.

  • Tania

    I say again that name gap az the top of Jared’s page is waiting for Rob.

  • Tania

    I cant wait to see him as Salvador Dali. The film Little Ashes and Rob looks hot,

  • Julie

    Thats beyond sexy. It goes off the scale.

  • Wendy

    This guy is going to be the hottest and best actor in Hollywood. He’s as quirky as Depp, as versatile as Di Caprio. As sexy as Pitt, infact sexier than Pitt. Has Damon’s dry sense of humour and is musically gifted.

  • Wendy

    Not sure I liked the underpants. I’d love a semi naked shot on a bed.

  • Wendy

    The little ashes film has a fansite

  • Ruth

    Sexy shot but not fussed on the facial hair. He is the sexiest actor alive however and I hope he gets some wonderful roles. I’d love him to play John lennon.

  • kerry

    Photographers lack such imagination. They could have had him virtually with no clothes on. Roll on Rob in Little Ashes. Much prefer that to Twilight.

  • robertpattzlover

    ROBERT PATTINSON is damn hott!
    i LOVE him dmn much!
    love you!he will be great!

  • emma-australia

    I can’t find the cover picture of James…or hasn’t it been released yet?
    That’s a hot picture of Robert though :D

  • kerry

    His liver must be pickled as he’s still getting drunk every night

  • Emily

    Has Parts Per Billion been cancelled? I was looking forward to seeing him film that. But Olivia Thirlby is now doing a play off Broadway so confused. I;d rather Rob do some other blockbuster films though. Play the lead in a graphic novel film.

  • Emily

    He’ll be an amazing Salvador Dali. HOT photo.

  • Emily

    If girls ever see him in the street they need to shout cedward.

  • Dara

    Next Jonny Depp. Certain of it.

  • shelley

    Could this man get any hotter. Only in a tux

  • melissa

    I agree he’s the next big actor and not because of looks but talent. The guy can seriously act unlike most of the next big things. Hurry up mid October so we can see the trailer for Little ashes

  • melissa

    i wonder how they had him dressed for the solo EW cover

  • Ski

    I hope we get lots more photoshoots and interviews. Cant get enough of Rob

  • Ski

    Strange underpants, they look like a diaper

  • janeb

    No actor shrieks SEX as much as Rob. You want to drag him to bed when you see him.

  • janeb

    I’d like him to work out a bit to get firmer arm muscles. Not OTT but just enough to define them more.

  • davina

    I want to find out what his new roles are. Hopefull they are flooding him with work as he;s so talented. Wonder if his agent is making him be choosy. His next few roles are so critical.

  • davina

    Nearly forgot smokin photo.

  • Holly

    I cant get enough of looking at this photo. Many thanks Jared

  • Cressy

    Artistic and sexy photo all at the same time. Phew. Fan me.

  • Cressy

    I love his dry sense of humour

  • Betsy

    What a great way to wake up looking at Rob Pattinson. They should put him on all the magazine covers. Then they’d sell like hot cakes.

  • Betsy

    I’m dying to rip those pants off him

  • Sarah

    An incredible actor and with looks like this he will go all the way ot the very top.

  • Sarah

    Is this the only photo in the mag of him. I;d have loved more. But then I’m never satisfied. Can never get enough Rob

  • Judithb

    I couldnt be more turned on

  • katy
