March 2nd, 2010 / 9 Comments


I was going to post the link to this interview, but then I saw the inane comments by the haters of Rob on the site.  Seriously I don’t live in a bubble where I believe Rob is the be all and end all (oh ok maybe I do but that’s beside the point), but seriously it takes energy to type a comment.  We have loads of people who come onto the site and never do and that’s not a problem seriously, but I’ve never understood why people feel the need to comment on a site about things that they DON”T really know but perceive.  You don’t like the look of him – move along – hell there are plenty of Hollywood stars I find repulsive – do I bother to go and comment – nope – do I bother to read any interviews or stories about them – nope.  So go figure – people I’ll give you a hint on how to succeed in life – focus on the positives and don’t worry about the negatives – if you don’t like something – don’t look.

Anyway – enough of my rant – here’s CNN’s Andrea Mineo’s “8 Minutes with Rob” in full (because I care about you and don’t want you to be upset):

“I just recently became a tweeter on Twitter. After walking out of a screening of the new Robert Pattinson film “Remember Me,” I tweeted just that. Suddenly my blackberry went into overdrive, and all incoming messages were from new Twitter followers. But really, they were all Robert Pattinson followers. I had no idea just how strong the power of Pattinson was until I witnessed it first hand.

Yesterday I interviewed R. Patz (as his fans affectionately call him)  at the Regency Hotel here in New York. He was wearing an army-green jacket, a plain white-T and jeans. What really stood out was his hair. It was sticking straight up on top. It seemed to me that he was unlike most actors with preening stylists in tow. I liked that. [Maria:  I don’t call him that Andrea – I affectionately call him Rob – the other name is an Americanism I would say]

They held me right before it was my turn to go into his room. I could overhear one of the girls on headset saying, “Where are Robert’s lattes? It’s been a while.” Soon a tray came up to the room with two metal pitchers.

When I walked into to the room they announced my name and that I was with CNN. Pattinson stood up to shake my hand. This rarely happens at press junkets. Journalists are ushered in and out interview rooms like a revolving door – no one gets up.

I thought Robert looked a little pale, perhaps that’s what was making his green eyes seem so green. He was easy to talk to and relaxed, although through most of the interview his hands were moving. At times they were in his hair – now I understood why it was standing up seemingly on its own. He might have seemed a little sloppy, with his unruly hair and his slouchy T-shirt, but perhaps that is what made him more endearing.

I asked him how he was doing. He didn’t complain; he motioned to the small table nearby which now had his coffee.

He asked me if I was based in New York. I told him that I was.

“That’s cool,” he said. “How have you been finding the snow?” he asked in his soft-spoken English accent.

“It’s been okay, manageable.” I answered. I think he started to say “Can’t deal with it,” when suddenly we heard someone yell “SPEED.”

We both laughed – it was time to start the interview. No time for small talk, there was a cattle drive outside of journalists waiting for their handful of minutes with him.

I asked Pattinson about the film and if he thought it was about love and the fragility of life.

“Sometimes people come into your life like at the right time and you know they achieve, there’s like a purpose they’re destined to achieve something. But I don’t know if it’s necessarily about love but it does fix something in either one of them.”

“Remember Me” doesn’t have a typical Hollywood ending, and what happens has been leaked on the Internet. I asked him about the way the film ends.

“It’s strange as well as being a sort of tragedy cause also it’s very weirdly uplifting movie as well for a kind of tragic thing.”

“What do you do now to have a private life?” I asked. “There is such a spotlight on you now, where do you go to get away from it?”

Pattinson leaned over to take a sip of his coffee. “There are so many places, I mean you have to be asking for it to cause problems for yourself.”

He said, “I’ve been shooting in London and it’s the absolute opposite of this. There’s no one around, I mean ever. There’s huge demographics of people who’ve never seen or heard of ‘Twilight’ and it’s quite easy to find little pockets where you can like disappear.”

“Do you feel like you’re handling it well?” I asked.

“I don’t know yet,” Pattinson said with a light laugh. “I’m kind of just working the whole time, so hopefully I’ll just side-step around everything.”

It may be difficult for Pattinson to side-step around everything, when he’s at the center of it all.”

    Enjoyed reading this little interview, Rob is so sweet. Yes indeed, we call him Rob or Robert because that’s his name – not R. Patz. I really dislike that name.

    Thanks for not posting the link Maria. Why people feel the need to write hateful comments I just do not understand. These people know nothing about Rob & like you say, if they don’t like him (people how could you NOT) why on earth are they reading the article. They disgust me, they really do. Rob doesn’t deserve any of that, not at all.

    I agree if you don’t like it move on. Personally I could read and watch him all day and night. But that seem’s a little stalkerish!!! I don’t comment often cause I can’t spend much time, I peruse, drool and then leave. But I think both Maria and Michelle are doing a wonderful job, I love each and every new post that I do get to see. Thanks a heap.

    Rob is so endearing isn’t he? The report of that interview sounds very in keeping with his low key approach. He’s still very grounded.

    These hateful people have nothing better to do with their life and obviously aren’t satisfied with their own so they bitch and moan and become nasties. Not even worth knowing. I agree with you as well Maria. If you don’t like something ignore it walk away and work on your own life. Spend your energy on becoming a better positive person it will eventually eat you up being this horrible negative parasite.

    Sweet interview.

    If I were to affectionately call Rob something other than his name, it certainly wouldn’t be RPattz. lol

    Move along haters, no matter what you think, Rob will continue to be Rob and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

    I just love hearing about the way Rob continually charms his interviewers. So many comment on him being so genuine.
