I’ve updated a new video interview of Robert Pattinson with TG1.
There was an embankment with a train track on the top. All the trailers were on one side, and then the circus world was on the other. Once you walked over the tracks, there would be a camera, but that was the only thing from the 21st Century.
You could stand on the tracks and look over at everything, and you were in the ‘30s. We were out in the middle of the desert in Fillmore, and there was nothing else around. There was an orchard. We were in the ‘30s. Jack Fisk, the production designer, used authentic pegs and the ropes. Every single thing which built the world was all totally real. And, authentic period underpants do actually help, as well. I actually wore them every single day. Jacqueline West, the costume designer, was unbelievable. Almost everything was real. Every pair of jeans were all from the ‘20s and ‘30s. It was crazy.
Robert is no fool. Wherever you are, the English actor, 24 years old invests on the role of romantic hero. It’s like that with Jacob Jankowski, the protagonist of Francis Lawrence’s film, based on the book by the Canadian Sara Gruen. In this drama, which takes place at a circus in the times of the Great Depression Era (1929-1939), Robert works with two Oscar winners actors Reese Witherspoon (best actress, Walk The Line) and Christoph Waltz (supporting actor for Inglorious Basterds). In this interview, the actor talks about his first love, the hatred that he has for paparazzi and a certain discomfort caused by the hysteria of fans.
How was working with so many wild animals? Did your conception of the circus changed after Water for Elephants, with regard to the way animals are treated?
Was there a moment when you were scared of animals?
Francis Lawrence, the film’s director, said it was difficult to find a 23-24 year old man who was not too young for the role. And he said that you was already man – thoughtful, intelligent, caring, strong and confident. What makes a man a man?
Do you feel like an adult?
An english survey says that 87% of english women, of every age would replace their husbands immediately with Robert Pattinson. And the suspect is that every woman in the world would do the same. Pattinson, 25 next may 12, a very tall man (1.85 cm) skinny, pale and apparently unhappy (as vampires should be), is the center of a mass idolatry similar only to the Leonardo di Caprio’s (Titanic). Another movie, Breaking Dawn, divided in two chapters (first will come out november 18th 2011, second one november 16th, 2012) after that date Twilight Saga and his Edward will be in retirement.
And he and Kristen Stewart will be free, if they want to, to live their love freely, a love that they never confirmed. Since the series begun, in 2008, semi-unknown Pattinson, chosen between 5000 candidates, rise to the 15th placement between most payed actors, for Breaking Dawn he asked and obtained 12.5 $ milion for every movie; when he changed genre he renounced to a lot of money: for his new job “Water for Elephants” he asked only 1.5 $ milion . “But I need to put my feet down and to wake myself”, he says very seriously. Based on Sara Gruenmost successful novel, set in the ’30s, the movie follows Jacob that became a veterinary in a circus by chance. And falls in love with Marlena (Reese Whiterspoon), even if she is married with the ringmaster and animal trainer August (Christoph Waltz).
What attracted you of this story?
In 2004′ Vanity Fair you had a little cameo as Reese Whiterspoon’s son. Now you become her lover: Hollywood’s miracles?
This time, in love scenes, you did not feel paralyzed, did you?
And Christoph Waltz as the villain?
When you were a child you were fascinated or scared by the circus?
Robert Pattinson is saying goodbye to eternal life! The 24-year-old actor is incredibly busy filming the final scenes for Breaking Dawn but it turns out he much prefers his new role as Jacob Jankowski in the upcoming Water For Elephants. But there’s one main reason he can’t stand being in Twilight — the makeup!
“It’s nice to be able to actually touch your face without thinking you’re going to get a huge smudge mark over it,” Rob tells Good Morning Arizona of his Twilight role as Edward Cullen. “Not having a big kabuki mask on and the contacts … [Water For Elephants] is a totally different experience.”
But this isn’t the first time Rob has complained about his golden black Twi-eyes — “I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive … I want to reanimate them into something so I can kill them,” he tells Entertainment Weekly.
Rob doesn’t just stop there — he tells Australia’s Mornings With Kerri Anne that a big franchise series like Twilight can’t really be considered “film.”
“When movies become these franchises and big machines people can’t really see them as movies anymore it’s so difficult for people to understand it,” Rob says. “It seems to happen to every big franchise now, and people tend to think of the cultural relevance of it than the actually movie. So it’s nice to do this [Water For Elephants]. Things that are made purely to be a movie. They are not going to be in any fast food restaurants.”
It sounds like these past four years as a vampire have been less than thrilling for Rob — are you surprised?
Check out Water For Elephants when it hits theaters April 22!

Catherine Hardwicke talks about casting Robert for Twilight success video interview.
Here’s the video interview of Robert’s co star from “Water For Elephants”, Christoph Walts talks about working with Robert & Reese.
You might know him best as the vampire Edward from “Twilight,” but Robert Pattinson is full of life in his newest movie.
Tara Hitchcock sat down with Pattinson to talk about “Water for Elephants.”
“It’s strange. When you read the script, I hardly have any lines at all,”he said. ”I read it really quickly. I read it the same day I met Tai, the elephant. I really wanted to work with the elephant so I kind of rushed through the script.”
Pattinson shares much of his screen time with Tai, and the two developed a bond.
“There’s something about knowing that this creatures kind of knows you,” he said. ”You’re so proud of it. … There was a scene when we were both inside the train car and we both fell asleep together and she literally had her trunk around me. We were both fast asleep. I thought, ‘How many times can this happen in your life?’” Read more…
Robert Pattinson stars in one of the hottest movies this month, Water For Elephants, and he tells us what it’s all about!
Dressed in black jeans, plaid shirt over a white t-shirt and a gray wool jacket, Rob sat down to talk with us about his new movie, is a good opportunity for this irresistible hottie!
17: What made you participate in this film?
17: What is the relationship between Marlena And Jacob, like?
17: What is your character, Jacob, like?
17: What do you do on a day off?
“She is quite a flirt,” the 24-year-old heartthrob, Robert Pattinson, said of his 9,000-pound co-star, Tai, the lovable pachyderm in his latest action-drama movie, “Water for Elephants.”
The feeling is mutual as the “Twilight” sensation kisses the trunk of Tai during our pictorial with both of them in the parking lot of the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica.
“Tai has done more movies than me,” Robert said blushing. Tai, who lives in Perris, California with principal trainer Gary Johnson, is a motion picture veteran who has done several movies already including “Bigger than Life” and “The Jungle Book.”
Based on Sara Gruen’s 2006 novel of the same title, the movie is about Jacob Jankowski (Robert), a vet student, who falls in love with The Benzini Bros. Circus’ star performer, Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), who is married to the controlling ringleader and circus owner, August (Christoph Waltz). Jacob and Marlena become closer to each other when both take care of Rosie the Elephant (Tai) who is nearly nine feet tall.
So how did he bond with his new pet love, we asked. “I don’t know if there was a real trick to the special bonding,” he said. “I just fed her a lot of peppermints. That’s about it. That’s the way to get an elephant to like you. Feed it Jelly Beans and peppermints every time you see them and then she started following me around. But I don’t know if I learned a lot about elephants in general. Tai is unique in just being so intelligent. She is phenomenally intelligent and she could even do impressions of other animals. It was totally ridiculous. She was kind of a freak among the elephants but I like them. I had an amazing time working with her.” Read more…
