Respecting Rob because actions speak louder than words.
These pics have been on my mind for awhile now … and I was going to post yesterday as a treat, but well who could focus … anyway I love the first one especially (Vicky better prepare yourself, Rob in dirty jeans, but alas no boots!) – I wish these would surface in HQ *hint*
I LOVE when Vanity Fair give us these ‘web extras’ Rob playing the piano *sigh* There is an accompanying article that goes with this gorgeous pic & here’s the part that mentions Rob:
Sing us a song, piano man—let’s start with “Happy Birthday.” New Orleans’s Preservation Hall—where Annie Leibovitz shot young Robert Pattinson, shown tickling the ol’ 88 with the world-famous Preservation Hall band—celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Situated in the French Quarter, the music venue is one of the country’s most hallowed: it was founded in 1961 for the purpose of preserving New Orleans–style jazz, and indigenous American music. On his first-ever visit to the Quarter, Pattinson jammed with the house band and thoroughly held his own—his celebrity perhaps subsumed by that of the musicians, whose legendary status awed everyone on set. “When we first started, none of us knew that Robert really does play piano,” says Ben Jaffe, the tuba player (center, above), the band’s director, and the son of the venue’s founders. “But when he got up there, he started ticking out these notes, and it was obvious he wasn’t just tinkling—he really knew how to play.” Though the musicians were expecting the actor to just pose, Pattinson gamely jammed along with their tunes. After finishing a song, he leaned over to Jaffe “and said, ‘That’s the first time I’ve played with a group of guys like that,’” Jaffe recalls. Not a shabby gig—especially with Jaffe’s homemade red beans and rice waiting as reward.
Any chance we may have an outtakes series like we did last time VF? *smiles sweetly* Cannot wait to see more from this gorgeous shoot.
“With assistance from a careful team of alligator handlers, Robert Pattinson’s April cover photo was taken by Annie Leibovitz at an alligator ranch and hatchery in Louisiana. One of about 40 such ranches in the state, it works to protect and propagate the once-endangered American alligator by harvesting, incubating, and hatching the eggs of wild alligators, and by promoting the preservation of the Louisiana wetlands.
Shortly after Pattinson’s shoot, he found himself in a potentially more frightening situation: cornered by a crowd of screaming girls. (The daughters of a ranch staffer had assembled an excited group of comrades to ask him for a photograph.) The heartthrob obliged his fans and left a warm impression on the folks at the farm as well. The ranch’s founder and owner, John Price, in a phone interview a week after the shoot, remembered Pattinson as “quite the gentleman.”
