Cosmopolis promo is just beginning, so we'll have tons of new interviews and photoshoots coming our way this month. As always, pay attention to this site for scans and translations from Spanish/Latin American publications. In the meantime, the latest all new photoshoot comes courtesy of Premiere magazine. Thanks PattinsonLife for the scans. Here are some highlights of the interview:
On thinking Twilight was already behind him:
"I'm not the same as I was at the beginning. First, I'm older ... When I have to go on the makeup chair, I see all those wrinkles that came with time, it's scary. I thickened/filled out too. Since I didn't have any clothes when we shot the first movie, I stole some from the movie when we done and I can fit any them anymore!"
On going to Cannes with Kristen for their new roles:
"I'm thrilled to go. Filming Cosmopolis with Cronenberg changed something in me. It gave me balls. *laughs* I have 5 projects lining up right now that follow the path the movie opened for me. Before, I spent my time doubting myself. As soon as I read a script that I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough. Now, I tell myself: 'Fuck it! If they want to hire you, go!"
On wanting people to like him:
"I've always wanted to make good movies. But before, I was more the type to get drunk & say: "If people don't like me, they can go fuck themselves!" (laughing) It's different nowadays : I want the people that I respect to respect me as well. It seems easy when you say it like that, but sometimes, you need time to undertsnad that having the respect of others is what is the most important. And whining about it won't make you succeed. When David came out of nowhere to ask me to be a part of Cosmopolis, I asked him tons of questions. I wanted to know absolutely what he has seen in me, what he thought about me... But he couldn't answer me."
On reactions to the Cosmopolis teaser:
"I've been doing movie for 8 years & I've been criticized often & all of a sudden, this teaser is released & everyone is excited. "It looks great! His acting is good in it!" It's ridiculous! It's what makes you understand how the critical mind of some people work. I'd like to ask a question to those people who think I just started acting well: What do you think I was doing in twilight? Do they think it's how I act naturally? No, I had to take decisions as an actor. I find it funny when I read stuff like (He uses a dramatic voice) "Will Cosmopolis finally prove that he can act?" What does that even mean?
On being rejected because of Twilight:
"It's almost more dangerous to try the Hollywood adventure, in fact. Recently, I read the script for a big movie worth 80 million dollars that I liked a lot. it was the first time a studio was sending me a script that I liked and I was really excited. I was telling myself: "This is it, I finally have that cool blockbuster that i was looking for!" But when I went to the meeting, I was told that I was too marked by Twilight & that it wouldn't be possible. I was disappointed. Then I read the script again & realized that, in the end, it wasn't that good. (laughing)"
On his life changing because of Twilight and the negativity towards it:
"When you suddenly become known, you have no control over what people think of you anyway. You need to learn how to fight the storm, especially when you understand that you're just a pawn within an enormous machine.
When you're doing interviews, one after the other, to promote a movie but no one asks you about your work, you end wondering if you'r even an actor. I often ended up in front of people who had probably never seen any Twilight & only wanted to know what it was like to be a celebrity.. "People recognize you in the street, they take your picture all the time & it's really weird, Here you go.." While i'm talking about that, something happening to me at the beach not long agao. I was trying to learn how to surf - So I looked like an idiot, you can't even imagine -, when I thought I had seen paps, trying to hide behind rocks. When I got the confirmation, my body acted on impulse & I ran in their direction. But in the middle of my run, I started asking myself what I would do once I was in front of those guys. I wasn't afraid of being beaten up, what you would be scared of in those kind of situations, but I was scared of ending up in court if I hit one of them. Fortunately, Those paps were such cowards that they left immediately. I have no idea what would have happened if they had not left."
