Hello guys, I hope you’re all doing well! Today you can discover a new photoshoot of Robert Pattinson for GQ (June/July 2020 Issue). He photographed himself for this special edition due to the COVID-19! You can read the story behind the photoshoot below. The magazine was published on the Internet today and will start to reach readers on May 26! Enjoy 😀
GQ Director, Welch, and his team aimed to capture the anxiety and open-mindedness that many people experience, locked up in their homes, and excluded from their usual routines. He has greened some “calculated risks,” such as letting cover star Robert Pattinson photograph himself.
Zach Baron, lead editor, who wrote the cover profile: “Robert Pattinson was filming “Batman” [in London], so the idea was to go get him on a day off or, if I was lucky, even to visit the plateau. But we never managed to book a plane ticket.”
“Robert Pattinson has a bunch of cool cameras and he’s in an Airbnb in London. He had cameras with him and maybe also a digital camera, and he was ready to photograph himself. I do not know him. It’s not like they sent me a portfolio of his photos or anything. He just said, “I would be willing to do it if you wanted to.” It is not something I would like to do with anyone. But in his case, everything about the directors he chose … and all the moves he made after “Twilight” showed a real creative spirit and an incredible taste and instincts.”.
March 25: Welch, Visual Director Roxanne Behr and GQ Entertainment Director Dana Mathews have a phone call with Robert Pattinson, her manager and publicist to share some tips for the filming, which Pattinson will do alone in her apartment, where he is in quarantine with his girlfriend.
Roxanne Behr, Director of Visuals: I gave her a wide range of historical references to the art of self-portrait… I have never spent as much time on a bridge as for Robert.
March 30: GQ sends Robert Pattinson clothing for shooting: Dior and Louis Vuitton suits, Burberry scarves, Turnbull & Asser scarf, Paul Smith blazer and pants, Elder Statesman socks and Alighieri jewelry.
We sent an email [PR firm] Karla Otto’s London team to see if they could get us something from Craig Green because his collection was vibrant and brilliant… and they came up with a few things, including this red look.
Dawodu: This costume was obvious because it is a costume and it is easy, in my opinion. And it was [a question of] whether or not he was going to go or not. [Robert and I] had a very casual conversation, I made a few suggestions and didn’t think about it any more personally. It’s no use… I felt safe in the editing.
April 9: Robert Pattinson sends images digitally to Roxanne. Not hiding a messy apartment, the images have a chaotic quality. In some shots, Pattinson even tied socks and scarves around his arms, legs and head.
Dawodu: I told him to go wild.
I think it’s a good time for brands to listen and for them to accept creativity that they would not normally have accepted before.
Baron: In some ways, the weirdness of it all set him on fire, just as it set us on fire. These are interesting problems to solve.
Behr: What he sent was very unexpected and it’s the beauty of the project…. It’s just not the shoot we would have done if we had shot it. It’s totally refreshing. You can totally say that he is in his own world – there is no hair, there is no makeup.
“He sent us a ton of photos, which we then reduced to 16. He didn’t tell us “I really don’t like this one, don’t us,” which surprised us, in fact.”
April 10: Pattinson and Baron begin a series of conversations for the interview.
“Robert Pattinson has proven to be a very good partner for this because – and he talks about it in history – he feeds on clumsiness. he feeds on strange situations.”
Robert Pattinson about his character, Bruce Wayne/Batman
“Batman is a complicated character. I don’t think I could ever play a real hero – there’s always something a bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one… I have no interest in playing someone who’s heroic.”
“I’ve always found Batman interesting. He’s struggling a bit, especially in some [versions] of the story. He doesn’t know if he’s that great or not. That’s kind of interesting, walking the line.”
“The role has a ‘power’ which is why everyone is attracted to it. It’s an unidentifiable thing … I remember watching the Tim Burton Batman movies as a kid … I was obsessed with them.”
“The role has a ‘power’ which is why everyone is attracted to it. It’s an unidentifiable thing … I remember watching the Tim Burton Batman movies as a kid … I was obsessed with them. There was something that appealed to me. Batman movies have always attracted really good directors and really good actors, and it’s got a legacy and lineage to it. It’s never been something that seemed like just a cash-in.”
Robert Pattinson: “The role has a ‘power’ which is why everyone is attracted to it. It’s an unidentifiable thing … I remember watching the Tim Burton Batman movies as a kid … I was obsessed with them.”
Robert Pattinson trying on the Batsuit for the first time
“You do feel powerful immediately. And it’s pretty astonishing, something that is incredibly difficult to get into, so the ritual of getting into it is pretty humiliating. You’ve got five people trying to shove you into something. Once you’ve got it on, it’s like: ‘Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs.”
Robert Pattinson about his life
“I’ve calmed down in terms of my everyday life, but mainly because I spend more time in London, which is totally different. When I was living in LA, I felt out of place. I didn’t feel connected to that city and its life and culture. Over the years I’ve been able to do a lot of traveling and that has helped me grow as an individual. It has also helped me become a better actor because I have greater insight into things and that shows in your work.”
“I’m also doing more parts that just sort of interest me, while in a lot of ways taking a little bit of a step back just to learn and get better. Everything feels more honest and authentic. I used to be treated like a baby bird that needed to be protected from the outside world and I hated that.”
Robert Pattinson about Twilight and his fame
“After the shooting began, I was amazed at all these screaming teenagers who were spending the entire day waiting outside the set. It seemed completely surreal to me. Even then, it still didn’t hit me. The first time I really understood that millions of people would be going to see the movie was at the world premiere when I went to the theatre with my family and friends and there was such a commotion. It felt insane, but over the years you learn to adapt. You don’t have a choice.”
“I’ve never allowed myself to believe that all the attention is for me. You need to separate your identity from your celebrity because as soon as you start letting yourself think that when you hear applause, they’re applauding you, you’re [finished].
“I also think that working in smaller films has helped change the perception of me, and the kind of celebrity that came with doing the Twilight movies has worn off. It’s fine with me.”
Robert Pattinson about relationship
“Especially as you get older, it becomes easier to find your soulmate because you’re more mature and better prepared for a serious relationship.”
Robert Pattinson about taking risks
“After having experienced the kind of fame and commercial success very few actors get to enjoy, I wanted to be able to take risks. I knew that sci-fi adventure High Life (2018) would be controversial, and now I would love to maybe [star] in a film about a dancer.”
“I can already hear my agent telling me: ‘What, you want to play Rudolf Nureyev? Robert, you’re the last man on earth who should play the greatest ballet dancer of all time’. But my answer would be: ‘Give me nine months to practice my grand jeté and I can pull it off!’ [Laughs] The idea of taking on an impossible role like that is what excites me.”
Today we finally have the translation of the new interview for L’Officiel Italy.
L’Officiel: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Robert Pattinson: “Where do I see myself in ten years? Still here to give interviews and enjoy a job that, despite everything, is giving me a lot and that I continue to love madly.”
LO: When did you decide to become an actor?
RP: I actually never really thought about it. There was a girl I liked, she was part of the “drama club,” so I was around fifteen and I was working backstage when I realized how magical everything behind the show was. I didn’t go to school, I just decided to do what I like, and I like being in front of the camera, I like being in the theater, backstage, going out with my colleagues after the show. It was a natural process. It was not my life’s dream, I did not pursue it persistently, I only did what I liked, and I did that well.
LO: As a child, what career did you think you would pursue?
RP: When I was a teenager I imagined doing something in the field of music. I played the piano, my group and I lived in a restaurant and it seemed beautiful to me. I have to be honest, I’ve always had positive experiences. In my previous life, everything was probably pretty damn bad.
LO: When did you realize you were famous and popular? How did you react to this?
RP: For some reason, I have never totally connected myself to being famous. I don’t think it has changed me. “Twilight” was so fast, we always worked at a fast pace and, in a sense, I lived in isolation. I didn’t have time to realize it, even when everything was over. I still remember after the premiere of “Harry Potter,” the following day I was very excited, and the day after that it was as if nothing had happened.
LO: According to recent research, you have been named the most beautiful man in the world.
RP: That’s flattering, but it also makes me smile a lot. If I think about it, there are thousands of things that I don’t like about myself and I am self-conscious of. To be honest, I’m realizing that as I get older, I pay less attention to physical appearance than I used to a few years ago. I think it can be a good thing to find parts of ourselves that we don’t like in order to improve them.
LO: What is the first memory you have of fashion? You mentioned that you are a collector of sneakers.
RP: I remember when I was about fourteen years old, none of my friends really thought about clothes. But, I put money aside for a red jacket that I liked and I said to myself, “I have to have this.” I think it was from a Japanese designer, and I felt so fashionable, which was a feeling I had never experienced before. Before I was fourteen I had never thought about fashion and that red jacket was my right of passage, the moment I became aware of it. In my life I have had multiple stages. I bought a lot on eBay and little by little I became fond of sneakers. It was always the same model, focusing on details and every possible variation…I owned all the iterations of the same shoe.
LO: How would you define your personal style?
RP: It’s strange because I spend a lot of time hiding it, in a way. I don’t think it’s a real style. I could not define it precisely; eccentric clothes certainly attract me a lot. However, in everyday life, I wear “normal ” clothes without having a precise aesthetic.
LO: How do you make your careers in the world of fashion and cinema coexist? You have been working on it for years, for example, with the Dior Homme cologne campaigns.
RP: The thing that attracts me to cinema, especially in recent years, is the atmosphere of darkness. I like the contrast with the works I did for Dior, which are attractive in a more conventional sense.
LO: The new Dior Homme perfume campaign is dedicated to a “strong” man. What does strength mean to you?
RP: I believe that strength is being able to listen, rather than saying everything we feel we have to say. Very often people want to demonstrate at all costs that they are perfect by placing themselves at the center of attention. Instead, you have to be patient and to be so, you have to be comfortable with yourself. Being strong also means being empathetic, without judging.
LO: In a video directed by The Blaze, you dance and seem to have a lot of fun. Can you tell us more about that experience?
RP: It was incredibly fun. At one point I was taking dance steps behind the room and they yelled at me “ride!” and I, in the midst of the dancing, could not understand, so I asked “What are you saying?” and they replied “Fly!” It was very hilarious.
LO: Do you consider yourself a beauty buff? What is your beauty routine?
RP: A beauty buff? No, I don’t consider myself a beauty buff. For years, I did nothing except wash my face. Then, as I got older, I realized that I had to take care of my skin, I’m no longer twenty. One thing I love to do are face masks, like the ones people wear on planes to relax.
LO: One last question about your career: who do you think was your film role model? Is there any role you dream of playing?
RP: Marlon Brando is an icon for me, I think nobody can match him. About my dream role, I must say that every character I played at the beginning seemed so strange, but it made me happy to give each of them life. And they made me who I am.
Good morning guys, the movie had its release date pushed four months and the film will now be released on October 01, 2021. The film was originally set to be released on June 25, 2021. Production had begun in the U.K. earlier this year but Warner Bros. suspended production on the film last month amid coronavirus concerns.
Remember, Matt Reeves has described his film as a “defining” and “very personal” story about the Dark Knight, rather than an origin story in the vein of Frank Miller’s beloved “Year One” series. According to insiders with knowledge of the project, Reeves’ film will explore Bruce Wayne’s second year as the Dark Knight detective.
‘The Batman’ cast
The cast includes Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton, also known as the Riddler and John Turturro is playing Carmine Falcone. TheWrap previously reported that Andy Serkis is in talks to play Alfred Pennyworth and that Colin Farrell is in talks to star as The Penguin. Jeffrey Wright is playing Commissioner Gordon, Peter Saarsgard is playing the role of Wasserman, while Jayme Lawson is set to star as well.
Good morning guys, after three months, here are new photos of Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse in casual clothing picking up supplies in London during the COVID-19 lockdown. They are thought to have been living together at her Notting Hill flat. The couple looked very much in love as they shared a few jokes whilst walking through Notting Hill. Robert could be seen carrying a large box of Kellogs Corn Flakes. Enjoy 😀
Hello guys, I hope you’re all doing fine. Today you can read a new interview of Robert Pattinson for l’Express France. I just translated it for you! Enjoy 😀
How do you choose which projects you participate in?
ROBERT PATTINSON: My criterion is the director. This year, I wanted to take on a major production, it hadn’t happened to me in a long time. On the set of Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet”, everything was giant: the set is a whole city, thousands of people are involved. But Christopher nevertheless manages to create an intimate atmosphere on the set: there is only one producer present, and only one control screen. It’s like an independent film.
Do you watch movies that come out?
ROBERT PATTINSON: I watch everything, but only between shoots. I’m influenced by what I see, it’s dangerous. If I like a film, I immediately think: “This is how I should act!” So, when I work, I only watch documentaries, true crime documentaries, which are very addictive. On the other hand, I listen to a lot of music: on “Tenet”, British drill, a kind of rap that helped me build my character, as a complement to the screenplay.
Are you an actor who likes a challenge?
ROBERT PATTINSON: I like fear, it’s a very nice feeling… at first. And then it quickly becomes horrible! It’s the same with every movie. I try things, I think a lot, and then I think, “I can’t do this, I have no idea how to play this.” It’s only after you’ve hit rock bottom that everything gets better. People around me find that very annoying. But it doesn’t work every time. For ‘The King’ [by David Michôd, produced by Netflix, in which he plays the Dauphin of France], I tried to adopt a French accent. I was very sure of myself, I thought it would be funny. But on the first take, it was a big flop! Like when you tell a joke and nobody laughs.
Is it important to change your look to enter a character?
ROBERT PATTINSON: Very important. I hate playing someone who looks like me: it makes me uncomfortable. Besides, I never use my normal voice when I play, it’s not something I control. For ‘The King’, I had seen a picture of Lily-Rose Depp’s hairstyle [she plays Catherine de Valois, editor’s note] and I thought that my character would also like to look like a princess, with long hair and braids… I’m surprised they let me do it! On the set of “The Devil All The Time”, the hairdressers had pinned these photos of fifties singers with hair full of hairspray. I wonder how we got the idea to think that was beautiful… Anyway, I like extreme changes.
Do you enjoy getting ready for an event?
ROBERT PATTINSON: When I’ve had enough sleep and time and everything fits perfectly, it’s great. But that happens 20% of the time. Usually, I wear the wrong outfit, I have weird socks… I’d love to be organized, I’m late for everything.
In Dior’s film, Leonard Cohen’s song, “I’m Your Man”, is about a man who shows his vulnerability: do you think that’s modern?
ROBERT PATTINSON: When you accept it, you’re already stronger. It’s like fear, if you learn to tame it, you end up being attracted to frightening things. It becomes very satisfying, you feel like you’re capable of anything.
You are boxing and dancing in the new Dior Homme commercial… And in your life?
ROBERT PATTINSON: I’ve been boxing for many years, and I like to dance when I’m alone. If I’m surrounded, it becomes a nightmare! I feel more naked when I dance than when I’m undressed. I’ve already taken lessons, but I come out of them very angry…
What smell do you like the most?
ROBERT PATTINSON: The smell of an In-N-Out fast food burger just as I arrive at the airport in Los Angeles, the city where I feel at home. In fact, I haven’t eaten one of those in years.
You haven’t been following the healthy trend of green juices…
ROBERT PATTINSON: No… (Sighs) I prefer burger juice!
British, you represent a French house and you live in the United States: do you see a difference in the way people live in these cities?
ROBERT PATTINSON: People think that everyone looks the same, it’s not true. Paris is not far from London, and yet look how different it is. Every city deserves to be discovered. You have to explore, leave the internationalized places, otherwise you end up eating the same club sandwich everywhere…
Hello guys, I hope you’re all doing fine! Today you can discover new outtakes of Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme 2020. These new photos were published in L’Officiel Italia (March 2020). I’ve untagged one of the photos. Enjoy, and don’t forget… Stay Home!! Cheers 😀
Robert Pattinson appears in the Dior documentary that celebrates the brand’s 70th-anniversary exhibition, “Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams“. At 49:30 you will see Robert Pattinson’s handwritten invite to the Exhibition which took place in Paris on the 3rd of July 2017. Then at 50:05, he does a quick red carpet appearance and at 51:30 he answers this question – What do you think of the exhibition? “The crocodile dress. In the exhibition, it’s kind of an Egyptian dog on the top. It’s incredible.”
Today, we’re blessed with several new photos of Robert Pattinson for the Dior Homme 2020 Ad. These photos are from the Dior Homme Book. Enjoy these new photos and I’ve also added a few quotes from The Blaze and the Dior director who talked about Robert and how they filmed the ad. 😀
THE BLAZE ABOUT ROBERT: Robert Pattinson is a completely normal, friendly and approachable guy. He arrived on his own, without a PR or an agent. We had a few beers and had a laugh together. It was pretty cool.
DIOR HOMME DIRECTOR ABOUT ROBERT: One thing’s for sure, he is extraordinarily photogenic. And that’s what makes him a star: he has an instant presence in front of the camera.
ON THE SET: They created experimental spaces where they left Robert Pattinson to improvise while the camera was filming. When he dives under the tablecloth in the restaurant taking the girl with him, that was totally improvised. We just left him with the girl and said: work your charm.
