RPAU & Robert Pattinson at Sydney Premiere of Water For Elephants (6 May 2011)

image host

I cannot believe it’s been 10 years and thanks Vertigo for the reminder last night. The blurry photo above was taken by me on Rob’s first trip to Australia to attend the red carpet premiere of Water for Elephants on 6 May 2011. It still blows me away that we were invited to the event by 20th Century Fox. It was a balmy May day in huge contrast to today’s windy wet weather. I still vividly remember Rob stepping out of the car on what was an unprecedented 300 metre red carpet. It plays in slow motion on loop in my mind often and Reese was so tiny and stunning. It still feels surreal that we were on that same carpet with him and then Rob on stage at The State Theatre when he walked out – peered into the audience and said “Let’s ava look atchya” – GOLD. Thanks for the memories Rob and I can’t wait until you can come back … we miss you. *Waves to Dean*.

    Now THAT was a night to remember! Rob stepping out of his car was truly a sight to behold! I’m actually catching up for lunch today with one of the friends that I dragged to Sydney ten years ago for that Premiere – I must tell her we’re celebrating a special anniversary LOL

    This movie made me cry in a good way, watched it multiple times to get my money’s worth from renting it on YouTube in February, LOL and RP was again right on the money with his good guy act.

    You folks are pros, going to premieres and talking to RP face to face. Maria, that video of you talking to him at The Rover premier and what an imposing figure he cuts (despite all his professed insecurities).

    I must say something about Tenet which I watched over the weekend. I didn’t get the chronology or all the switches at first attempt but put it together loosely after a second watch. What grabbed me most was this press video of him talking about theoretical physics and his attempts at reading Feynman and others. What a pro! I am a STEM professional with a long career and I have a hard time coming to grips with all that Quantum Mechanics/Physics stuff (though, I have a brother who is a theoretical physicist who is also an arrogant bastard because he knows God particles, heh!)

    Here is that video and it makes me proud that he actually tried to make some sense out of it all from physics point of view. And, I think like Indiewire pointed out, he adopted an English accent that was easier on the audience for Nolan’s wordy dialogue delivery — he could just have done his English accent but he put so much more thought into it tailoring the delivery to how it was written. Wow!

    Maria, this is from your Master Post on Tenet and I was watching it earlier, @0:50 he comments on theoretical physics and trying to read Feynman.

    Thanks @PM – having Rob standing opposite you it’s a dream come true. As for Quantum Mechanics/Physics … you’re better than me. I love that Rob says he based his accent on Christopher Hitchens. I find that he downplays his intellect – someone who is that egoless is a rare find.

    He definitely downplays his intellect, case in point watch @3:39 neuroplasticity…

    I love that unscripted conversation between Rob & Reese -such easy, good-natured banter between them. And I remember when Rob mentioned The Brain that Changes Itself – I’d actually read that book not long before he mentioned it, so it was fun hearing him speak about it. I also love Reeses’s facial expression when Rob mentions his wide hips (I’m rolling my eyes) and high-waisted pants – classic! Thanks for sharing it again. As for TENET, I spent hours and hours googling stuff and reading all kinds of different explanations about that movie …… all it proved was that the world is full of folk who are much smarter than me LOL.

    Sue, I know you are joking but about folks being smarter about tenet, not really. I watched a few and they were BSing. But a couple I saw were good, especially ones from Michelle from teabreakfilmreviews. In our household, we gave up on making full sense of it and decided we don’t need all of the explanation if we suspend our belief and just go along with the changing realities and the people within it which is also what RP said in one of the press interviews. It is like a jig saw puzzle where the puzzlemaker (~Nolan) knows more and does not give you all the pieces.
