Robert Pattinson becomes manic/wild about ideas


Meredith Goldstein from The Boston Globe interviewed Robert and the Safdie Bros during the Good Time promo and below is an extract from her interview:

Just before an interview with the Safdie brothers – the filmmakers behind the gritty crime-thriller “Good Time” – a reporter gets a warning: “They like to talk.” … Their “Good Time” star Robert Pattinson calls this trait an “abundance of energy.”

“It’s just that, from Day 1, Minute 1 of the day until wrap,” he said. “Just always at maximum.”

The project came out of a meeting with Pattinson, who told us in a phone interview that he was drawn to the “frenetic, frenzied energy” of the brothers’ work.

Pattinson said he feels lucky to have worked with them when he did.

“I could really see that people around hadn’t really noticed the extent of their potential when I first met them,” he said. “You can feel that they had — that they still have a lot inside them people haven’t really seen yet.”

Meredith also added some additional information from the discussion with Robert in her tweets below:

  • ok fine 1 thing. he said people assume he’s brooding/quiet because of his most famous characters, but IRL he gets manic/wild about ideas.
  • We also talked about vs Cosmopolis, and he said that his character in Cosmopolis is more energetic as the movie progresses.
  • whereas in Good Time, his character looks like he’s hitting a wall. Also, he said both characters appeal to him because “They desperately want to touch some kind of reality whether it’s time or whether it’s any kind of conventional, emotional connection …”
  • And I did not ask “are we talking about you or your characters, Robert Pattinson” but I assumed it was sort of both.
  • He talked about this character, who seems to be chasing his tail: “You know when you see a dog going faster and faster and faster. Eventually at a certain point you’re like, well, that’s kind of profound.”
  • I told him that the Safdie brothers called his face “iconic,” and he said: “I don’t know how it works as an icon. Just, as [they say] in the movie, just some white guy.”
