Rob talks to ‘The San Francisco Chronicle‘ about ‘New Moon’ and playing Salvador Dali. Here’s an excerpt on what he said about shooting ‘New Moon’ on the article:

“It’s strange because it already feels much more of a slick machine,” Pattinson says of the film, which is being directed by Chris Weitz. “The first one we had such a young cast. Everybody was friends. It was fun. There was nothing like what it is now. Now there are people waiting outside the hotels all the time. We have security. It’s crazy.”

His character, Edward, never ages, so he has to look like an undead teenager through the three sequels he’s contractually obligated to appear in.
“I think all of them will be done within a year and half,” he says. “The whole thing is about change and aging. So it would look ridiculous if I’m playing 17 when I look 35.”
Which is another way of saying that Pattinson is unconcerned about being locked into author Stephenie Meyer’s franchise in the same way that the Harry Potter cast has been in theirs. It won’t last that long.

James Mottram of The Independent recently interviewed Rob and it is one of the better ones I’ve read in quite some time.   Rob talks about his new found fame and the craziness that surrounds him as well as on Salvador Dali and his struggles.  I am always interested to hear what Rob thinks about these topics and he doesn’t disappoint:

on Dali:

“Just hyper-consciousness and stuff… I guess I do relate to that quite a lot,” he mumbles.   What I really related to is this idea of ambition. Just being so concerned about being the best and being known for being someone important… he keeps continually forgetting that it doesn’t really mean anything at all. And I always found that idea interesting. But I think Dali has a lot of shame – and I don’t really have that!”

on himself:

“You can never be known for what you want to be known for … People will know you for whatever they want to know you for.”  

So true Rob, so true.   It’s also hard to disagree with James’ final comment that “for a 22 year old, Rob is surprsingly perceptive”.  What’s not surprising is that he is so grounded and unaffected by the fame.  These characteristics are just two of the reasons why he has won himself a legion of admirers.  The quotes above, for me, are further proof of that.  Thanks to our affiliate Robsessed.  You can read the full interview here.

Little Ashes is mentioned at LA Times as one of the ‘Movie Sneaks’ of 2009.  I’m so glad that this movie is getting all the attention it deserves.  Little Ashes is going to be released in the States on March 27th this year. Unfortunately, there is no release date confirmed for Australia.
