Thanks to Le Rpattz Club for the scans.


In the beginning the journalist tells us that it was always obvious that R Pattinson felt uncomfortable with his status as an icon in the particular film genre that he was thrown in (ie teen idol).

Quote: “Acting in movies that you wouldn’t yourself go to see in the theatre complicated things. It made it difficult to talk about them, to promote them to feel connected to the public. Up until I met D Cronenberg who cast me in Cosmopolis, I felt like I was “falling” into these roles that I hadn’t really chosen. I was certainly trying not to sink. For the first time I had the impression that I was chosen for my talent. David gave me confidence in myself. That completely changed my approach to my profession as an actor”

Next talks about how it seems probably a bit funny that he has been chosen to be the face of a great perfume brand which will catapult his image on posters all over the world. But this is not true. Dior was certainly not the first brand name to approach him but it seems that they used the right words to persuade him – or rather one word: FREEDOM. He used the opportunity to realise his actor’s dream: to collaborate with Romain Gavras a French director who navigates between super cool and super controversial.

Quote: “it had been a year since I had attempted to contact him but he never responded. When Dior approached me I thought to myself I am sure he would want to work with me if I propose to him a Dior ad”. Bingo! Gavras accepted.

The film he made is like a champagne bubble, concentrated cool with a 60’s influence where Rob and top model Camille Rowe have fun, smoke cigarette butts, drive a classic BMW convertible on a beach…

The star expresses his admiration for the “anarchist” Gavras.

Quote: “He sees the world in such a completely different way from me. He has extraordinary confidence in himself. Whereas I am much more nervous. It’s sad but at the same time I believe that my insecurity is the only one thing that I find interesting in myself”.

Goes on to say that there has always been a misunderstanding surrounding R Pattinson. There is a mention of his romance with Kristen Stewart and their break up and all the rumours that have undoubtedly made things difficult. And that he has an acute self conscience

Quote: “People saw me in one or two films and they concluded that this is who I am. That’s normal. It’s up to me to seek the directors I really want to work with. I am doing it but for that I have to overcome my shyness. This happened to me a few days ago. I met one of my heroes at dinner. I texted him the next day to tell him that I would love to work with him. After 3 hours he hadn’t replied so I was ready to text again to say Sorry, Sorry that was extremely presumptuous on my part. But he finally replied!”

Next the reporter tells us that Pattinson has a mix of passion, detachment and extreme lucidity which makes his daily reality as an actor complicated. Cosmopolis and his first experience in Cannes were a turning point.

Quote: “I promised myself that I would only make films that I like”.

Which is not easy in the country of blockbusters where everyone was telling him to build a male audience.

Quote: “I couldn’t even understand what that means. “build a male audience!” I cannot force the guys to go watch my movies in the theatres!” he muses. But he is not completely naive and he realised that it is essential to be cool for the Indie cinema to be interested in him.

Quote: ” In effect it is marketing and the most important thing in marketing is to be coherent. This requires refusing a whole stack of offers. Certainly the risk in this business that evolves so fast is that you will refuse offers until no one offers you anything any more. At that point my only option would be to take part in Dancing with the Stars”

Next we are told that he will appear in QOTD, that he has filmed David Michod’s The Rover and has just finished filming MTTS with Cronenberg again.

He has determination and is building for himself a path that is starting to look like him. Mentions briefly Leonardo Di Caprio and Brad Pitt who were not taken seriously at the beginning of their careers.

Quote: I quite like fashion. But I am uncomfortable with the idea that I will be judged based on what I am wearing. So I always dress in a similar way. But look I have this top that Dior gave me which I wear all the time!”

We hope that even with an impeccable look he will retain his frankness.

Quote: “A few months ago I started designing women’s clothes, haute couture gowns…” he says laughing. “It was definitely a sign that I was having a nervous break down!”

Final words of the journalist: Fragile, touching and irresistibly sexy despite of himself, Pattinson the teen idol has finally become a man.

Thanks so much to Ephie for the translation 🙂

    Wha wha WHAT Dior event????!!!!! AAAARRRGGGHHHHH! why does every good thing happen anywhere but where I live??? Seriously, if I didn’t have family here, I’d ditch where I live and just travel everywhere where Rob was. Well, OK, no, that’s too stalker-like for comfort. But I wouldn’t stay here either!! Girls, have a great time! I’m sure we’ll get a full report of what went on. There WILL be an essay required… (I must say, these pics are borderline religious aren’t they? Messiah indeed…)
