Rob is on the cover and features in a new interview in this weekend’s Observer Magazine with Alex Moshakis from The Guardian. We will post the interview as soon as it’s available and hopefully some new shots like the one above thanks to Danielle Levitt. Love her shoots with Rob.

Since retiring from the Twilight saga, in 2012, Robert Pattinson has quietly become one of Britain’s most creative actors. Next month he’ll star in Robert Eggers’s “The Lighthouse”, which might be his best film yet. So why is he so utterly convinced he doesn’t know how to act? @moshakis meets him to find out. Elsewhere in this weekend’s issue, we take a peek inside New York’s iconic Chelsea Hotel; @nigelslater shares his sweet and easy festive treats; we ask: what Christmas film are you? (No, it’s really not “It’s a Wonderful Life”); and Kim Gordon shares everything she knows. Out Sunday. Cover 📸: @daniellelevitt #robertpattinson #twilight #thelighthouse #edwardcullen

“I really don’t know how to act” That’s the byline for Rob’s full interview with Alex Moshakis which you can read above or head on over to The Guardian:

Do you want to hear a funny thing about Robert Pattinson? Robert Pattinson is convinced he doesn’t know how to act. Willem Dafoe can act, Pattinson thinks. Willem Dafoe can act the socks off anyone in the business. And Joaquin Phoenix. Joaquin Phoenix could tie his shoelaces on film and be nominated for an award. And Bruce Willis – Bruce Willis! – now there’s a leading man. But Robert Pattinson? Nope. “I only know how to play scenes, like, three ways,” he says. Three! That’s all. Despite more than a decade in the industry. “I’m nervous on, like, every single movie.”

Pattinson, who is 33, is sitting in a booth in a low-lit restaurant in Notting Hill, west London, dunking table bread into a pot of something. It’s the early evening, dark and cold outside. He has arrived from rehearsals for The Batman, which started not long ago and which are taking place, to his delight, in the studio in which he filmed Harry Potter in the mid-aughts. The Batman is the first time he’s worked in a studio in “like, forever,” and his first mainstream leading role since he retired his best-known character, Twilight’s Edward Cullen, sexy vampire. That was in 2012.

Maybe he’s tired now. Or maybe he’s had a bad day. Maybe he’s arriving at the studio every morning and not quite getting Batman’s vibe. Maybe he’ll never get Batman’s vibe, and people will finally agree he really can’t act, and his career will come screeching to its inevitable end, and the whole world will fold in on itself.

Which are the kind of thoughts Robert Pattinson has.

“I’m a catastrophist,” he says, laughing. Pattinson laughs a lot and goes for it: closes his eyes, throws back his head, reveals the square jaw and the fine stubble and the underside of the slightly skew-whiff nose, and lets out a loud, unfiltered giggle. “I’m always thinking that the worst-case scenario is actually going to happen. So when it does happen, I’m like: ‘Gah! OK! I’m prepared!’”

Thanks Cyn
