Well, I can’t think of a better mid-week pick-me-up than a new Rob interview, photoshoot, and short film for GQ Magazine.

Rob gives GQ an honest and insightful commentary on his life and career post-Twilight. I’ve posted an excerpt below. You can read the interview in its entirety at

The Interview

“Here, incidentally, is a very quiet, virtually unknown café that he likes, just a few blocks from his house in some part of some part of Los Angeles. He asks that I don’t print where this is, since he comes here a lot, mostly because of the [privacy feature]. He sits here every day, same table, eating the same [house special scramble], hold the [thing that makes the scramble delicious], and he never sees anyone here, and he’d like to keep it that way. Sure, I say.”

“This is Rob Pattinson’s conundrum in 2017. He can disappear into roles. He can become someone new. But when he shows up to talk about the career he has now, the career of his dreams, people still mistake him for the tabloid tween sensation he was a few years ago, whose personal life was everywhere, who knew he was going to get asked about it in every interview and hated every second of it. He still does, which is why every minute we’re together I see him watching me warily, waiting for me to pounce.”


The Photoshoot

Adjectives escape me, or at least none do these photos justice.

The Short Story: Fame and Fear

This is a short video written by Rob. As comical as his narration is, I think it also says a lot about his dread of being recognized and yearning for privacy. That said, as he successfully hunts down that elusive hot dog, Rob FTW!

    OMG. Not sure what else to say other than THANK YOU GQ MAGAZINE & THANK YOU ROB!!! NEVER LOOKED BETTER!
    Did anyone else sense a little Dali 2017 in Rob’s short video? It gets funnier with every watch. How entirely random and unpredictable and unexpected. How Rob.

    The pictures and the short are great but also sad, as it shows, in a funny way, what it is like for him to be out in the public.

    I’m not so fond of the interview/write-up. There is next to nothing about “Good Time”, the Safdies or filming. The only thing the interviewer was interested was gossipy, juicy stuff, and since Rob spots someone who is like that in a second, he was extremely guarded and not willing to give her anything. It must have been very uncomfortable for him. If the interviewer were really interested in his work and would have asked about it, I think he would have been more open and maybe she would have gotten a bit of the intimate stuff she was looking for.

    Agree @Mella – personally it was an excruciating read.
