That hot tune you hear on Rob’s Dior ad is Whole Lotta Love by Led Zepellin, and fans are reacting positively to the song choice by making it climb iTunes rock lists worldwide. So far, France is taking the lead and
the song is featured not just once, but twice on iTunes Top 10 Rock List.
It hasn’t popped up on the top ten lists in other countries, but give it time… and hey, if you enjoyed the song, it’s not a bad track to buy!

Fans are angry. They didn’t get their perfect leading man. Pointless petitions are getting thousands of signatures. The backlash is strong. “He’s so ugly, eww!”, “That’s now how he is described in the books!”, “That is not leading man material!”, “HIM?!”. If that sounds familiar is because Charlie Hunnam’s casting as Christian Grey
is exactly what Robert Pattinson faced six years ago when he was announced for the role of Edward Cullen. If you were here back in the day, you remember how fans were pissed that Henry Cavill
(now The Man of Steel) didn’t get to play their favorite vampire. Fans were pretty verbal and brutal on the Internet, and Rob was very aware of that. Fans mocked everything, from his face, to his hair, if you can believe it, they were not having any of it and did try to make people change their minds and recast the role. But it all changed as soon as they saw Rob in full Edward costume. Fast-forward six years and five movies later, and fans adore Robert, they see him as the perfect Edward and Rob is one of the most popular young leading men in Hollywood, with a big cialis ad two bathtubs
Dior contract and a massive fortune of his own, all in big part thanks to Twilight and braving that initial backlash with the sense of humor he is known for. But according to Forbes
, while 50 Shades will be a good career booster for Charlie Hunnam, he will probably not make as much money as Robert did, because this time, no teenage audience will be able to watch the movie.
Universal and author E.L. James chose Labor Day to make a major casting announcement about the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation. Charlie Hunnam, best known for the FX TV show Sons of Anarchy, will play Christian Grey, the sexy older man in the trilogy. It’s a huge coup for Hunnam who has been acting for a long time but has yet to land a role that will catapult him to the lever of A-list movie star. Grey could finally be that role. Hunnam has a better chance of becoming a franchise star with Fifty Shades of Grey. James has sold more cialis generic fast shipping than 70 million copies of her books. We recently ranked her as one of the top-earning celebrities with an estimated $95 million brought in between June 2012 and June 2013. If Unversal can harness that fan enthusiasm, the movie should be a hit. With director Sam Taylor-Johnson and stars Hunnam and Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson) Universal is clearly keeping the budget low. And although the millions of women who read the book will likely flock to movie theaters, the film cialis and smoking is sure to have an R rating which is always a buy cialis for daily use box office challenge. The movie likely won’t attract teen boys or young girls who can boost the box office of a film like Twilight or The Hunger Games. So although the movies will likely give Hunnam a po co jest viagra serious career boost, they won’t make him the next Robert Pattinson. Unless the first film is a runaway hit, Universal will likely be loath to boost future budgets too much to ensure that the films turn some serious profit. That means that they will do all they can
to avoid paying Hunnam that massive amounts of money Pattinson was earning by the end of the Twilight series.
As a Twilight fan I’m a little biased, but at the same time we all know how desperately studios want to duplicate Twilight’s financial success with little results. It’s just not something that happens very often: small budget, huge profits. Unknown actors become global super stars overnight. I think studios and actors alike would be happier not trying, for the moment, to make the next Twilight. Summit won the lottery with that one. But the 50 Shades cast is definitely as passionate as the Twilight fans were back in the day, so who knows. What do you guys think?

The people at Dior know exactly what they’re doing, and they certainly know Rob’s fan base. While critics have described the way the ad campaign has been rolled out as boring and “dragging it too long” the ad just surpassed the 4 million views on Youtube in just three days, which means the target demographic is pretty much loving it. In the above video Rob talks about his involvement in the creative process of the campaign and why he likes Dior.
Here’s the full ad if you haven’t seen it:
The song is Whole Lotta Love by Led Zepellin. And now be honest – are you buying the cologne?

American Psycho author, Bret Easton Ellis, claimed on his Twitter page that Rob was the first choice to play Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey, according to author E.L. James, who allegedly shared the scoop with him at Rob’s house, no less, during a party a few months ago (it was that birthday party that Rob hosted for director Nicholas Jarecki, which was full of celebrity guests, remember?). Bret loves to ruffle feathers on Twitter, and at one point he was very interested in writing or directing 50 Shades, so God knows if he’s serious or trolling as per usual, but here are the tweets:
It would not surprise us to be honest, if Rob was truly E.L. James’ first pick for the role. If you were part of the fandom three years ago when Master of the universe (the original fan fic title for 50 Shades of Grey) was taking over Twitter and pretty much everyone (not really us) counted the days for the next update, then you remember that back then all the fan manips featured Rob and Kristen as the main characters, and obviously they were everybody’s image of them for quite a while, not just because they were originally Edward and Bella, but because people liked to imagine them as the actors of the story… until the new wave of fans of the book started asking for Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. And it was also kind of suspicious how E.L. James was at Rob’s house for that party.
Either way, 50 Shades of Grey has its Christian and the funny story is that is Charlie Hunnam, Stephenie’s first pick to play Carlisle.
From the StephenieMeyer.com files, she posted on July 7, 2007, the following:
Second only to Edward on my “passionately decided” list is Carlisle’s character. My favorite: Charlie Hunnam. The reason this actor was able to get such a hold on me was his work as the title character in Nicholas Nickleby. He pretty much was Carlisle in that movie.
Check out that page for some real nostalgia and general weirdness. It’s crazy how time flies and how pretty much the series is now over. It seems like only yesterday fans were discussing who should play the characters, and how they were all throwing fits when Rob was announced as Edward Cullen (which, coincidentally, is how I discovered Twilight. I was a fan of Rob since managing HPLA, and the scandal made me read the book). The backlash was insane back then, if you remember Rob got death threats, there were petitions to remove him from the project, and that’s pretty much exactly what Charlie is facing right now from disappointed 50 Shades fans, but we’re pretty sure fans will get over it with time. Twilight fans did as soon as they saw Rob as Edward.
H/T: Page to premiere.

Balenciaga released a new image we hadn’t seen before, featuring Kristen for Florabotanica. It’s a totally different look than
what we had seen the first time around, and I have to say, I totally dig it. The previous campaign was a bit boring to me, I’m sorry to say, in big part because we barely got to see Kristen. It was just a full body ad, with Kristen just standing there and I had been anticipating something more eye popping and cute. But this new ad is great and it actually communicates something more, and we also get to see her up close. Hopefully there will be more ads in the horizon.

Rob visited kids at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, and recorded a really sildenafil oral suspension sweet message that you can watch above.
From their official website:
On Friday, Aug. 16, Robert Pattinson, actor and star of mega-hit movies “The Twilight Saga” and “Water for Elephants” dropped by Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to spread cheer and visit with patients.
Teens from across the hospital—including the Acute Rehabilitation Center, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases and The Heart Institute—gathered in the hospital’s Teen Lounge for a surprise guest.
More info via We treat kids better:
The Twilight star made a surprise trip to the hospital’s Teen Lounge on Aug. 16, and joined the patients who were decorating picture frames.
The 27-year-old, who is currently filming Maps to the Stars in L.A., created a pink frame decorated with hearts, and laughed at his own “terrible” artistic skills before posing for photos and signing cialis tadalafil 20mg price each kid’s picture frame.
“Robert was so nervous about meeting the kids – he didn’t want to let them down – which is a testament to how humble he is,” Child Life specialist Ana Vega said. “He was incredibly gracious and kind.”
Pattinson also visited two cystic fibrosis patients – huge Twilight fans – who were unable to leave their rooms.
“We couldn’t help laughing and smiling when roxicodone online pharmacy one of the patients was so starstruck garlic or viagra that she couldn’t speak. You could tell it meant the world to her – she was tearing tadalafil 5 mg efectos secundarios up and smiling ear to ear,” said Lyndsay Hutchinson, the hospital’s public information officer. “The other little girl teased him relentlessly and begged him to do an American accent. They were instant friends.”

New interviews and content is popping up featuring Rob’s new campaign for Dior Homme. It’s a pretty exciting time to be a Rob fan. First, this is a major campaign for a major fashion label, and second, it’s a GREAT campaign that not only is romantic and sexy, but you’re also going to see it EVERYWHERE. No matter where you live, it will pop up everywhere: tv spots, magazine spreads, billboards, displays in many different stores, you name it. You will see Rob and Dior Homme more than you ever saw a Rob movie advertised anywhere, and that includes Twilight. The best part is that these campaigns are around for a long time, so Rob’s face will dominate the media for a while. Just think how many times you saw Charlize Theron’s ads for J’adore. Anyway, Rob’s giving interviews to different media, and as usual the foreign press is the first to share their Q and As with him. I’m on the look out for all the Spanish media as usual, but in the meantime here are two interviews. One is from Gala, translated by @enamoramiento1.
Actor Robert Pattinson on scents and the game of men and women
Recently snapshots surfaced of Robert Pattinson making out with beautiful model Camille Rowe. In some she´s fused to his lips while he cradles her head, in other her naked legs lean against the bathtub he´s sitting in. Ok, those scenes are taken from the new “Dior Homme” campaign, but you realize: those two get along well [it´s actually a German wordplay with smell meaning they get along well]. We spoke to the new Mr. Dior about women, his penchant for arguing and being a man.
Q: Now you´re not only an actor, but also a model. How do you feel at this point in your life?
A: Well, I´m 27 and for the first time in my life I don´t feel like a child anymore and like others don´t treat me as one. It´s strange, feeling like an adult. People treat me differently. For many people my age the last ten years were like a transition of sorts and some are still trying to figure out what they want to do with their life. At least that´s what I do!
Q: What exactly do you mean?
A: Right now I´m trying to write a script, together with a friend of mine. I love to compare notes with others, to pore over a script. And I love arguing!
Q: Lately you often mentioned how you appreciate people who live by their own rules. Is that something you´d want for yourself?
A: Definitely! Being successful makes you wary… you spend a lot of time guarding your private life. Whenever I meet people who don´t give a shit about what others think of them, I´m instantly fascinated.
Q: So you love freedom…
A: Yes. The more established I am, the more it restricts my privacy. An the quicker people are to judge me. They mistake you for the role you´re playing, the character the want to identify themselves with. When I shot “The Rover” in Australia I didn´t have any teeth, I was constantly dirty but I didn´t care. I was running around without a shirt all the time and did things I never get to do.
Q: What does masculinity mean to you?
A: The well-trodden image of manliness has changed a lot in recent years and doesn´t really work anymore. These are strange times to be a man… I used to have a very pragmatic approach, but masculinity today means so many different things. Especially in the world of arts men have to be everything at once: neat and wild, a provider and a player!
Q: Do men have a different idea of women today as well?
A: I just don´t get why so many guys feel threatened by strong women. I always felt at ease with women around, I grew up with two older sisters and a very dominant mother.
Q: Memories are often connected to scents. How about you?
A: When I was 12, on vacation and starting to get interested in girls, I thought that perfume would help me appear grown up and mature. I used to drench myself and felt so adult! Eau de cologne and hair gel were my best buddies that summer.
Q: What about today?
A: I still love scents, especially people´s individual scent. This pheromone-thing is really crazy. We´re subconsciously drawn to people we like to smell.
Q: Do you wear perfume to feel better or in order to seduce?
A: See, now that’s an adult-thing: someone who applies a nice scent in the evening is up to something. At least that’s how I do it!
Read a second interview after the jump. (more…)

Rob got to hang out with Beyonce after her show in Los Angeles on July 1st. Curiously enough, there had been rumors of him getting shot down at a previous concert and was not allowed to go backstage to meet with the singer. Guess it’s all gossip, because there he is!

With the release of Cosmopolis
in Mexican theaters, and some other Latin American locations to follow soon after, new interviews with Rob are to be expected from Spanish magazines in the following weeks. As always, I’ll hunt all of these down and translate them for you. Some might be new, others might not, so I’ll try to remember if I posted them before on the blog, and if not, I’ll post them here. The first interview comes from OK magazine in Mexico, not to be confused with the American tabloid, where Rob talks about Cosmopolis
, a little bit about Twilight, and waiting tables, including an embarrassing incident that had him banned from a restaurant. Oh, Rob! Note:
Please only take an excerpt from the interview and link back to the rest. Hunting down new interviews, scanning them and translating them takes a lot of time and patience, so we’d really appreciate it if fans read the content on the site that made the research. Thanks for understanding, and enjoy!
When did you learn about Cosmopolis? I got the script a year before we started production. My agent thought it might interest me because I told him I wanted to see every single good script he read. Collin Farrell got the script at the same time, and I really liked it, but I didn’t take it seriously because I thought I was too young for the part. I was wrapping up the last Twilight movie when someone sent me the script again, with a better offer. I didn’t understand what was happening, so it was a very pleasant surprise. Did you speak with Cronenberg after that? I read the script again. I knew there was something about it that was really passionate, but to be honest with you, I didn’t get it. So I was not looking forward to talking to David. I had heard so many things about him that I was very nervous about it. My agent kept pushing me, “You have to take this role,” but it was so terrifying for me to call one of the best directors in the world to discuss a script that I didn’t even understand. So you didn’t call him? I spent a week avoiding the call. I tried to think of ways to turn down the role, because it was the most logical thing for me to do. And then I remembered that I actually love all of his movies, and that if I didn’t take this opportunity, I would be a coward. So I called him, but I was very honest. I told him I didn’t get the movie, but that I did want to do it, and he said, “Great! I don’t understand it either.” And it all worked out in the end. What was the first Cronenberg movie you saw? I think it was Scanners. I loved it. It was back then when I was obsessed with Jack Nicholson. I bought the DVD because I thought it was Jack, but it was actually Michael Ironside, with whom I became obsessed later as well. What’s the difference between Cronenberg and the rest? He’s so confident in himself. He shows up on set and if he can’t find the best way to shoot something, he moves on to something else. The script is long, and he had to adapt 40 pages of dialogue every day. I hadn’t done anything like it since my days in theater. Is it true that he didn’t want you to stray from the script at all? Yes, that’s why I liked it so much, because I liked how irregular the script was. It was good not having to improvise. Most of your scenes were shot in the back of a limo. Was that claustrophobic? I loved it. At first I was so nervous, so I could just sit back and
wait for the actors to come into my space. There was no one else. Just me, my co-star in turn and a camera that was handled remotely by David, who spoke to us through an intercom. These made great actresses like Samantha Morton and Juliette Binoche come in completely nervous, which was great for me, because we were all feeling the same thing. Did you already know your co-stars? Only Jay Baruchel and Sarah Gadon. I met Juliette only a couple of minutes before our sex scene. And she was one of my favorite actresses in the world, so it was strange. You play a very brave role. Your scene with the prostate exam… I wish I had worked out more for that scene (laughs). The first time I read the scene I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever read, but it was one of the few scenes that had to be edited for the release of the movie. David kept cracking up all the time. I was the butt of the jokes. so I had to give up my pride very quickly. Do you believe you have the power to command any role you want? I really don’t think so. I guess I’m in a category in which I can make Twilight fans watch any movie because of me, but I’m not sure if that’s even a guarantee anymore. I’m really lucky I got the chance to do a Cronenberg movie, because I’m trying really hard to not make bad movies. I hope people notice that what I’m trying to do now is interesting films, and I’m not to be trusted with what I’ll pick next. I don’t want a career that is just an illusion. I was afraid that I would never be approached with an interesting project ever again. I was terrified that one day someone would ask me “So what did you do after Twilight anyway?”. Last year the final Twilight movie came out. Are you relieved that it’s finally over? The only thing that really bothered me about it is that Edward never changed. So it was hard for me to figure out how to play him with each film. It’s hard playing the same person for a while. Are you glad that now that you’re a big star you don’t have to think about the little jobs you used to have and think “I’m glad that I don’t have to do it anymore”? The weird thing is that I never hated those little jobs before I became an actor. I loved being a waiter. I sucked, but I really enjoyed it, even though I was fired from three different places. One time I dropped a bottle of wine on some bald guy’s head, and luckily it didn’t break. After that incident I was banned from working tables, and sent to the back of the restaurant washing dishes with a one-armed Turkish guy. I was not allowed to go into the restaurant anymore. You told us you love Jack Nicholson. Would you like to have the career of someone else if you could? You can’t really do everything that another actor has done. Everybody loves DiCaprio and Day-Lewis, but nobody can keep up with them these days. I want to do my own thing, and if some people like it, then great. What are you up to these days? I’m going to film Mission: Blacklist. And The Rover is coming out next.
Keep checking back for more new interviews. I’ll make sure to find every single one, as usual. Hopefully we’ll get many more. Twilight might be over, but I’ll still post every single interview from the Spanish media I can find, so you can count on that for years to come ;).
