Translation [Maria:  I think “Lost in Translation” is alive and well in this article and I’m not talking about Christine she did the best with what she was given no doubt]:

“My road was far less thorny than of the most of my colleagues

Robert Pattinson speaks to Julia Kudryavtseva about cinema, fashion, life in Los Angeles and his rider (list of conditions).

Lovelace, insidious seducer, public peace disruptor. In reality Robert Pattinson turned out to be shy, nice and friendly young man. Definitely not a spoilt child of fortune (favourite of fortune) convinced of his own irresistibility.  Moreover, during our interview I could not help feeling that paparazzi and fans storming venue of our meeting, also some doubtful stories appearing in tabloids have nothing to do with him.

“Is this your first time in Los Angeles?” –Robert asks me-“I am just getting used to living peacefully in this city” .Seeing bewilderment on my face he quickly explains: “I can’t say that since moving from London my life changed a lot. But still there is a difference, no more daily parties with friends. You know how the English love to have a drink after work, don’t you? I now have another hobby in the evenings, I get into a car and drive away aimlessly (without particular destination).” On hearing this I can’t help remembering that the actor while filming the Dior ad almost sank the car. “Yes, my driving skills can be extreme,”-he agrees-“ but to be fair I had never been in a car crash before”. And after touching the wood, he adds: “ On the other hand I drive cars I am not even sorry to crash.” 

Generally Robert turned out to be a very frank and sincere talker . For example he admitted that playing in Hollywood blockbusters and indies gives him equal pleasure. “recently I did two very different films, David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” and Werner Herzog’s“Queen of the Desert”(WTH? maybe they meant the Rover? -translator) I liked both. I don’t understand contemptuous attitude to big budget projects: if an actor is lucky to be part of the right Hollywood film, this work will definitely become tremendous and priceless experience for him” As for Arthouse “Queen of The Desert” the film attracted lot of interest even before going into pre-production- mostly because of the casting decisions of the director. The director trusted Robert with the part of Lawrence of Arabia. It is worth mentioning that “Lawrence of Arabia” with Peter o’Toole won lot’s of awards and was named as the best film of 1962. But Pattinson is not afraid of comparisons.“Herzog builds the plot around Gertrude Bell, my character is just her friend. So the part is fundamentally different”-explains the actor and adds in a second: “I am ashamed to confess I have never watched Lawrence of Arabia” although it is my father’s favourite film”.

Next year Rob has several premieres planned. For example , he has a leading part in “Maps to the Stars” Pattinson plays the actor, earning his living as a driver, because his career as an actor is not very successful. “unlike my character, I am very lucky, after “Twilight Saga” my life changed so much that I sometimes forget that before that I had to work as a waiter. My road was far less thorny than that of most of my colleagues.” [Maria:  Rob worked as a waiter?  First I heard of that]

Robert also feels comfortable as the face of Dior. “I like the fragrance very much, also being the face of such brand as Dior is really cool, although when it comes to my clothes I don’t really depend on brands. I do have a lot of clothes but to tell you the truth three or four Items would have been enough.” 

In real life Robert is in fact unpretentious . “ I know that some actors and musicians have some riders (list of conditions) in which they write champagne and exotic fruits. I have never made any lists. If I was asked what should stand in my dressing room, I would ask for a six pack of beer, and M & Ms pretzels, which sadly are no longer produced.”
