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.”

    … More Twilight movie posts please….. I am so excited to see the movie…

  • barbara

    Oh, my God, it’s Rob!
    not Edward or Cedric!

  • Susie

    Its Rob I fancy not the characters. I think he feels fans only see the character. He’s so wrong. i want to enjoy all hsi roles including the Dali one, art in How to be and lots of others. He’s a fab actor as talented as Di caprio. He’s only 22 so in a few years will have some incredible performances under his belt started with his Salvador Dali. I’m not fussed on Twilight but can see he needs that role to get the US to sit up and notice. Its the equivalent of Di Caprio’s Titanic.

  • Susie

    I’d like to see him take up Boxing like Hugh Laurie does. Woudl be a fun way to get fit and useful for roles.

  • Maria

    that photo is one of the bests!!rob looks sooooooooo hot!!:D

    i really like his interviews…he always gives that answers X)
    but i really love that side of him…he can be true, funny and everything!!and what´s the problem of driking a couple of shots?XD he is at the must do age….:

  • talia

  • maureen

  • katie
  • maureen

    noones remotely interested in sour puss watson. Stop spamming

  • Melanie

    His pr team are clearly trying to show he’s an edgy young actor and not stuck in Harry Potter land. It needs to be done so good for them. Still like to see him in a cool suit photoshoot.They dont need to try quite so hard.

  • Kikigirl101

    Cool! He’s hot! I’m mad though cuz he called Edward a Bloodsucker…. that’s usually what Jacob calls him…. I would’ve preferred vampire not blood sucker but w/e!

  • eira


  • afer

  • smurfette

    OMG!!! He’s such a Greek God! I try not to fantasize about him anymore (my husband gets jealous), but every time I see him, I just can’t help it! Sorry hubby!

  • asnandara

    LOVE HIM!!

  • lurker

    “cool little crack den”? Dam.

    HBO beat Twilight to the punch with their new vampire goth show called True Blood.

  • Amy

    I have no problem with Robert. He’s pretty cite. I hate the Twilight series. Horrible message for teenage girls.

  • maddie

    does anyone else think penn badgley would be a good edward cullen?
    idunno i just thought about it yesterday

  • blah

    Holy Hell. You made my morning.

  • to Lurker

    True Blood is really cool but the actors really need to get their French/Louisiana accents down better.

    Robert looks sooooooooo good!

  • Lili

    I wish he talks about his other new movie too.”how to be”.It looks great.I think Robert has amazing talents and ofcourse he is gorgeous.

  • jen

    to the girl who said he had lumpy arms i dont agree, his arms looked perfectly fine to me.. Robert looks great! he is sooo damn naturally sexy! goodness, could he get any hotter? hes killing me here lol….thanks for this post jared!

  • Me!!

    He is the epitome of pure, raw SEX energy…how is it that Rob is not accosted all the time everywhere he goes with women begging for sex from him???? I am a sensible happily married women with a good head on my shoulders, but one look at him and I turn into a silly non-sensical 12-year fangirl….YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Twilighter

    Thanks for this Jared —- he is incredible!

  • Anna

    He’s gorgeous. Just really actually smokin’ hot.
    LUFF HIM <3

  • LC

    Magnificent!!!!!!!! That is all I can say.

  • black

    Wearing pants like that, looks plain disgusting.

  • sarah

    To be honest, i still have respect for him, I always knew Rob was a party animal. This changes nothing.

  • Saraaa numba 600000

    Even if Rob and Tom did crack, it wouldn’t be something unheard of. Actors and singers do that as well as normal people, though I strongly oppose it. Robert is still Robert and Tom is still Tom.

    Anyway, he could have been joking so I won’t jump to any conclusions. XD

    I came to read the article but was automatically distracted by the picture. I think this picture really compliments his looks…He always seemed more brooding and internal. Bringing that out into the picture was a very good idea, I am certain you will have fan-girls (and women) around the world swooning. Lol.

    I’m not going to comment to talk about his sweatpants hanging low….That man is turning thousands of young girls into perverts before they reach the age of 20. Too sexy. XD

  • afer

    He said it was an EX crack house- read the article properly. I dont think Americans have a sense of humour.

  • JC

    oooh – if that shirt were white it could be the one from the meadow scene!! Toooo HOT!

  • dani

    he looks very good in this pic

  • Gemma

    He’s gorgeous . I dont like the photoshoot but thats the magazines fault for the odd photo.

  • Anna

    I adore Rob but I dont always agree with the scruff look. He’s too classy for the longer facial hair. Stubble is fine but thats way too long

  • Naomi – Australia

    I really like this photo but as a photographer myself, I would turn him slightly towards the camera not showing to much of his arm. But all in all I do like this photo.

    Most of you on here would love to have him in bed, I would love to sit, chat and have a drink with him.

  • Elizabeth

    This man is pure sex!

  • analine


  • loveestory xo

    HE is soo gorgeous!! its unbelieveable!

  • Dani

    Amy–The Twilight Series are NOT a horrible message for girls.

    Bella’s weakness does not come from her gender. It comes from h er humanity among inhumans surrounding her.

    The vampire females and the werewolf females in the books are strong characters .

    Bella’s strong too—just weak physically in comparison to the vamps and the werewolves. She’s not a damsel in distress either – half the time she’s the one saving others, including her suprnaturally strong boyfriend in New Moon.

    The twilight series is a feminist friendly series–only people with poor reading comprehension skills or else havent’ read the books are the ones making such critiques of the work.

  • Edwardhearrtsbella

    OMG…i think my heart just started pumping 100 MPH!

  • rina

    it’s an ex-crack den he said. Not like he was living in an active crackhouse. lol

    Nice picture, wth kind of tighty whities are those though?

  • S_M_G


  • geez

    great another rp picture, another 10,000 10 year olds he just pushed into premature puberty and another 10,000 menopausal women he just pushed back into pubesence……the dude’s like ruining Western Civilization, one photoshoot at a time.

    Seriously, the CIA’s gonna kidnap him to stop the national upheaveal of horny girls and women he’s causing.

  • Anna

    I love geez’s comment. All true.

  • Anne

    The photographer should have turned him more to us. Its too impersonal the way he has positioned him.

  • anna

    Ok he is just not cute. This is an awful photo. I’m sorry, I try so hard to find him attractive because I like the books, but I just can’t. People will only find him attractive because of the character he will play.
