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.”

    Rob’s unusual and rather exciting. He doesnt fit into any mould and I find that intriguing. I dont like the photoshoot but Rob is edible however he’s shot.

  • andrea

    I love him
    I want his pants
    I love him so much
    he looks so hooooottt…
    oh yeah!!!!!

  • yo anna

    I get that not everyone’s gonna think he’s cute, but I don’t find him attractive cause he’s playing edward cullen.

    RP jumped off a tree at the beginning of that Harrry Potter movie and all I could think was, “Hot Diggory Dog, we have a hot boy finally at Hogwarts!”

    RP is just pretty. Pretty hair, pretty eyes, pretty lips and a big ol’ masculine jaw to butch up the pretty nicely. Great combo.

  • Maggie

  • Steph

    but still hawt :D

  • penn?

    Penn Badgley would make a good MIke Newton, but I so don’t see him as a Edward Cullen. Edward should look like the vampire next door, not the boy next door. Robert Pattinson has a very ethereal look to him that makes him Edwardian, and just really pretty and brooding looking and mysterious. Penn’s definitely more snarky Mike Newton material.

  • pauline

    He’s a greek god and the photo is sexy but I’d rather the photographer had picked a different pose. Also hate soo much beard.

  • rafaela Temporim


  • diane

  • Kris


    I love how there are no haters on this thread at all! Rob is such a likable guy who could hate him! and with the way he looks it’s even harder!

  • Lindy

    I agree with an earlier comment which says he’s a mixture of Depp, Di Caprio with Damon’s dry humour.

  • Zanessaluver xoxo

    I just died..
    He’s gorgeous!!
    Twilights gonna be awesome!

  • m.f

    OH.MY.. what i’d do to get him to look at me that way! he’s simply amazing

  • kiki

    HOLY….FRIGGIN…..CRAP…..i didn’t know if he could do it but that man pulled it off…..i don’t see why ppl hav a prob w/ rob…..if you don’t like him then don’t waste your time by commenting…simple as that. there, i just made your life easier w/ a little common sense.

  • falon

    agreed. he is a crotch tease.

    especially since NONE OF US can get into his pants.
    Robert Pattinson, you are the biggest tease I know of.

    and it excites me ;D
    more. MOREEE!

    Gah he’s just soooo adflkkljdghlskjdfhglakjf;gha amazingly sexy.

  • newport beach, 92660


    HE’S MINE!!!!

  • Kelsey

    I love him!

    ….Okay I’m sorry, but ANYONE looks idiotic with their pants falling off. Why did he agree to posing that way……..?


  • cammywamy

    It’s Edward!!!! *drools*

  • Saraaa numba 600000

    LMAO. I misread the article. I thought he said he used to do crack. XD I should wear my glasses more often. My initial response without glasses: “Rob lived in a crack house and did crack? Well, okay…He’s still Rob.” lol.

    And…Yeah, I liked Robert before Twilight also, but I am more of a “Twilight” fan rather than an HP. My sister, babysitter, and myself used to fight over a Cedric Diggory key-chain…That lasted over a YEAR. It was some funny shyt because I was, what, 12/11? Now at 15 I would still steal that key-chain if I got the chance. XD

    And the majority of us like ROBERT, not just because he plays Edward Cullen ( though I love Edward Cullen) or because he’s extraordinarily sexy. :/ If he was a jerk-off I wouldn’t like him period and would avoid looking at anything with him in it. He’s really interesting so it’s nice to see interviews so we can ‘get into his head’ a little more. Personally, I have a better grasp on the other cast members “flavor” except for Kristen, Nikki, Jackson, Ashley, Elisabeth (who has been hiding from us!) and definitely Rob….He confuses me, but in a good way as do the others. xD I don’t know…I’m half-dead right now so none of this may make sense and I am seriously just rambling so I’m gonna…shut up o_0

    as much as i love the bigger pic. im a bit creeped out! LOL

  • madison

    wat the heck?? he’s really hot, but god, he isn’t hot in this pic. plus i had no idea who he is until my friend told me he’s starring in the twilight movie. (wich, i just read twilight and now im on new moon!)

  • cammywamy

    WTF! Does he have a beard! Shave!

  • mrs.cullen

    i don’t like the pic… he has a beard… i don’t like his beard!!!!
    I also don’t like that his pants are falling off… am i the only one who doesn’t like that his pants are falling off!??!?!? I mean, seriously!
    I still love Rob, though. He’ll make an amazing edward in the movie. just maybe not in real life. lol

  • Faith

    I love him

  • SpunkyMonkey

    HE LOOKS LIKE a fricken’ Rapper wannabe..
    Geezuz, Jared, this is NASTY.
    i mean, ugh.
    Rob is such a MANWHORE..

  • Paige fan

    Yep, another TM (Twilight Mom) here. I actually showed this one to my husband, and said, “See this brooding look? That’s the one you give me that makes me want to throw you on the bed!” Yeah…Twilight made me totally appreciate my AWESOME husband. ;P

    I’m also a fan of RP ~ not just Edward. Go to google video and watch The Haunted Airman and The Bad Mother’s Handbook. Anxiously await Rob’s upcoming projects with the rest of us. He’ll do Art & Dali as well as he’s done all his other characters.

    And finally ~ he’s 22, people. He’s gonna do some things we don’t approve of. Get over it. He’s talented, he’s ridiculously HOT and hopefully, he’s here to stay. LOVE this photo. Haters, go away.

    Love to Rob! :)

  • tiff

    Daang! i didnt know white boys could pull of the sag! lol he works it well

  • tha

    Oh, Jojo.. don’t be such a prude, will you?

    Personal opinion: loooove him!
    I thought he was all sweet and stuff but apparently, there’s a bad boy side to him. Love me a bad boy.
    Picture? Not so great but..

    Robert: you can have me any day. ALL DAY.

  • birda

    He’s freaking hot-I love his brooding looks and he has nice hands.
    But hey should hit the weights with Kellan hehe
    He’s so skinny :)

  • jojo

    well, I wasn’t referring to the article…
    more of the imagery…
    I’m sure he is a great guy, but with all this attention being thrown at him and some of the things I’ve come across recently, it seems that it’s taking it’s toll. But honestly, it’s none of my business.
    It’s just kind of..sad, is all.
    But again, none of my bees wax.

  • Emcee

    OME! I love Rob. The picture left me breathless. This picture is sex.
