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.”

  • Lissete

  • Heather

    ^_^ /sigh

  • Elena620

    how about “oh my god! you’re robert pattinson!!!”? that seems fairly constant… :D:D

  • amoremorte616

    …0.O X-O I can not even type a full response to that pic… wow. No words are coming to me. gawd this man is hawt.
    and I liked the answer he gave. wut-ev. lol. I mean, atleast hes not giving some press ready think-what-fans-r-gonna-think answer. He is an actual person. And btw, isnt it legal in europe to get drunk if ur over 18? So yea…. it kinda makes me like him more….
    *drools* oh man I turn so immature when I c him…its involuntary!!

  • Jess

    DO NOT compare him to Brad Pitt! Robert has more talent in his pinky than Pitt will ever have!

    What is it about him? I’m a 27 year old adult married to a very sexy man, but every time I see a picture of Rob I turn into a 16 year old fangirl who would be willing to offer him my virginity! He’s illegally gorgeous.

  • Elizabeth

    one word…. DAMN!!!!!!!!


  • eh………………………

    I’d hit that. HARD. Twice. At least.

  • isabella

    robb is flippin awsome. hope hes a gppd actor. i havent seen harry potter becuase i hate it so i havent seen him act but im still exited.

  • sbk

    I loved the article on Rob! Just one word for the pic…”wow!”

  • jessicaa

    omg i CAN NOT wait for twilightt i love love love those books and robert pattinson is so beautiful i cant wait to watch an hour and a half of him and then when midnight sun comes outtt..!!!!! lovee it!

  • niki

    WHOLY CROW thats a whole bunch o’ sexy!!! but i just dont see u as my edward when your but is fallen out of your pantz!! ha your just lucky u have a cute behind!!

  • Shirlz age 16

    Hes okay for playing Edward. In my opinion they could of chose a better looking Edward. But in the Twilight Previews i have to say, hes looking really handsome.

  • Shirlz age 16

    I have to say, I personally think that they could of chosen a better “Edward” for this movie. Robert Pattinson is an “okay” guy. But in the “Twilight” movie previews he look handsome.

  • Sara

    WOW!!!! he is most definately the most gorgeous man ever

  • pinky

    oh Rob.

    How old are you? Pull the britches up boy! Handsome English 22 yr old does’nt need to act so gangsta!

  • Carol

    Four things, why is it sexy to show your underwear? Seriously, I don’t get that one. Second, he is really cute but I think he is really not sure of the path he wants to take in life. Third, alcoholism is no laughing matter. He is so talented, I hate to see him drink himself into oblivian. There is so much more you can do in life and why didn’t he help the girl up off of the sidewalk? Lastly, I really want him to succeed. I hope someone in this business cares enough about this guy to help him learn to deal with fame. I just don’t want to wake up and hear that he has gone off the deep end. Rob, you are a talented guy, the party scene is such a dead end way to live. I truely believe from listening to you in interviews and reading about your past performances that you can do good things in this industry. Find some other interests besides clubs every night. Be good to yourself. A concerned Mom.

  • Rachel

    OMG he is soo hot. I got the twilight shirt with him on it and I was like OMG I HAVE ROB ON MY SHIRT!

    pants + rob = sexxy


  • LaTuaCantante

    i just wanna say hes gorgeous ;)
    kay thxs bye

  • Zoey

    First I want to say that I think by saying he lived in an ex-crack den, he probably only meant that he lived in a bad neighborhood, not that he’s done crack. Also he’s *probably* not an alcoholic, it’s just that in general the British people drink alcohol more often than American people.

    I could be wrong, but those are just my initial thoughts on the article!

    I think Robert is awesome because he’s a geek for computer games!

    Oh and it kind of looks like a diaper, sorry ;x *runs away and hides*

  • spunkie


  • Jennifer

    It’s amazing how he can sex you with only his eyes.

  • sara

    wow that picture is ok but i still do not like him, but i loveeeeee tom sturridge, he is sooo hot!!!

  • Chelsea

    He may be nice looking, but I am totally not digging the exposed chonies bit. Still, I’m excited to see the movie and I’ll be one of the millions of fans lined up hours before the midnight release.
