Numero Uno article on Robert Pattinson

imgbox

Charlotte de Capet, Numero Uno has written an article “Portrait of Robert Pattinson – Dior Muse” which features quotes from Rob. Below is an excerpt:

Driven by a constant requirement in the choice of directors with whom he collaborates, Robert Pattinson has chosen to be in the lineage of the great actors, those who, led by their passion for cinema, are capable, with the sole force of their will to forge a great career. At 33 years old, the face of the new Dior Homme eau de toilette has certainly not finished surprising us.

Robert Pattinson hardly looks out the window. Not only because the outside world scares him but because in his eyes only his inner world matters. Usually he stays in his room, watches movies or TV series. He thus managed to see four seasons of  Game of Thrones  in seventy-two hours, a performance that amazes him. Otherwise he reads, Michel Houellebecq, as he usually explains when his interlocutor is French. Otherwise, prosaically, the actor refers to the readings indicated by the directors under whose direction he works.

It was in his bedroom that Robert Pattinson conceived the rest of his career, as an attentive and obsessive spectator. Among the actors of his generation, his filmography is one of the most original and convincing:  Cosmopolis  and  Maps to the Stars  (2014) by David Cronenberg,  The Lost City of Z  (2017) by James Gray,  The Rover  (2014) and  The King  (2019) by David Michôd,  Good Time  (2017) by the Safdie brothers,  High Life  (2018) by Claire Denis,  Queen of the desert  (2015) by Werner Herzog and, most recently,  The Lighthouse (2019) by Robert Eggers, where he plays a lighthouse keeper threatened by a supernatural presence, where he almost never opens his mouth. His choices are always daring, reflecting a disdain for what is called a career plan, loyalty to the directors with whom he collaborates, with a certain courage to accept secondary roles from the moment a project interests him. . “ You know, supporting roles particularly appeal to me. In  Maps to the Stars  or in  The Lost City of Z, I was left alone, it was the advantage of filming in the jungle, James Gray had something else to do. Nobody expected anything from me. I could ask questions of the director, the film was not on my shoulders. It was as if I barely existed. ”Since 2013, the actor has been the face of L’Eau de Toilette Dior Homme, a role of muse that delights him, and looks, in his eyes, to the perfect counterpoint to his divisive career choices. “I had a very long relationship with Dior, it’s a great experience to shoot these commercials with them. I have always appreciated the contrast between making daring films and this work. Fashion is very different from cinema, and yet both pose an equally exciting challenge. ”

Robert Pattinson has a special way of talking about his films. If the film culture of the actor, just like the way in which he puts it to good use for his career, seems obvious. There are the films that have harmed him, which he tries to get rid of, and those whose healing powers he praises. From the shooting of  The Rover, a futuristic western set in the Australian bush, where the actor plays a half-deaf simple-minded man determined to track down the three men who stole his car and the dog in his trunk, he keeps a vivid memory, a film with therapeutic value. Pattinson was working in the middle of nowhere, the nearest town was 300 kilometres away, he lived in a village of fifty people where temperatures were approaching 50 degrees. Kangaroos were so little used to passing cars that they came crashing into their windshields. “ It was scary and dangerous at the same time, half the team was driving in a car stained with blood.”Then came a moment of epiphany. Robert Pattinson finds himself in the middle of the desert. He starts to piss. He does so with all the more ease and relief that no one is watching the scene. For the first time, he can take his ease in complete freedom, in the most complete anonymity. Here, in the Australian bush, 900 kilometres from Adelaide, in the open air, he rediscovered freedom.
