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.”

    He is so hot and sexy and ofcourse a great actor.

  • Jennifer

    Is it wrong that I want to lick him a little? That’s a normal reaction, right?

  • spunkie

    #252 It is normal. This man is sex on legs!

    Licking him, just a little…. XD

  • x2tz

    I think he is adorable. Such a beautiful and soulful man.

  • LC

    ROBERT IS ONE HOT PIECE OF A$$!!!!

    I WOULD HIT THAT!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT LOOK JUST TELLS US THAT HE IS SO FU#KABLE!!!!!!

  • Samantha

    I want to lick him a little bit, too.

    Wow…he just sexes you with his eyes…what a talent.

  • Lili

    Robert has won award for his performance in hOW TO BE in Strasbourg international fil festival in France(sept 26)

    EW! He needs a serious shave and a shower. And I like him when he isnt talking and is sitting in a hole. Robert might look like Edward but he will never be Edward…He is to much of a butt to be considered such. He sits pretty in his very high chair and overlooks all of us “minions”. To mock fangirls in saying their alligence changes to frequently is just all kinds of wrong. Sorry we like you Pattinson; I’ll let your publist know you dont want to be a hot shot and get paid anymore. I bet you liked it better when you were off getting nice and drunk with your buddy.

    And Im glad the pants did not come off….If his face is any indication of his shaving abilities, then thankfully the camera man saved us all from seeing what type of forest fire has spread down below.

    Do me, a fangirl, a favor Pattinson. The next time someone talks to you, just smile and nod; dont answer their questions. You sound like a retard….Take some pointers from the character you are portraying…Edward will always be better then you :]

  • mylisa

    Hes hot but looks wierd in this pic. His arm looks flabby, his hair looks funky, and the sweatpants falling off his ass look kinda gay……but hes still hot…..

  • Kelly

    I think he is super hot, but he looks sooooooooo gay in that picture.
    Sorry Rob, but I don’t like it. I love the beanie and all that. Not his pants falling down his butt.
    He looks a little like Prince.

  • Jordan

    All I’ve heard for the past few months is how bloody gorgeous he is but never does Rob receive any credit for his general disposition. I just saw twilight tonight and I decided to do a little research so i watched some interviews. Very few times have I enjoyed celebrity interviews but throughout these I couldn’t help but smile. He is extremely articulate and real, but what I love most is how completely humble he seems to be. Not only is he the best looking being I’ve ever seen, but he’s probably the most interesting as well. well lately at least. He’s really a swell guy

  • nowayyyyyyyy

    gay photo, hot guy.

  • mARILYN

    I think they picked the perfect Edward Cullen. I love the books and I’m sure everyone has their own version of what Edward should look like. Unbelivably I believe he looks like my Edward, the one in my head that is. His a very good actor. Bringing this character to life is probably going to be a great challenge. He is really good looking.
