Scans Of Robert Pattinson In Style Italy Cover & Full Interview!

It’s getting close to the release of Water For Elephants and Robert Pattinson is doing many interviews to promote the film. In Style Italy have him on the cover and with his co-stars Reece Witherspoon and the lovely Tia who plays Rosie. Below is the interview from the magazine:

The real prototype of these generational mutations is Rob Pattinson: 24 years old, and Englishman in Hollywood, where he became famous worldwide playing the pale vampire Edward Cullen (and, even before, Cedric Diggory, a model student at Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series). He jokingly admits to be “nothing special, one of those who live in hotels and travel the world”. However, he created a new masculine identity, surprising even for the Facebook sub-culture who’s made him a star via the social network. Today is the eve of an important test for him: his new movie, WFE: he’s the protagonist of a melodramatic film, set in a circus, from the bestselling book by Sara Gruen. […]

Having been labelled as a teen idol, you’re now being tested as a true actor.
I had this chance to act with Cristoph Waltz and I fall in love with Marlena (Reese), his wife. Travelling with the circus, I visit areas of America far from Hollywood. There are dark secrets in this movie, as in life. And there’s this idea of life-saving love, which I believe in. I’m not cheesy, but I have a romantic soul.

Do you get on well with girls?

I grew up with two older sisters, and I have a great respect for women. I hate the lack of prudishness, I get bored when people are ostentatious of their body. Sex and feeling for me walk side-by-side.

Your rock side: people say you spend nights with your friends listening to Tom Waits, Van Morrison and the late Jeff Buckley.

Music is a key aspect of my life. I wish I could play a movie about Buckley, his voice, his songwriting gave me a lot. I’m interested in his creativity, in his existence, even in his death by drowning in 1997, in the Mississippi.

What kind of use do you do of Internet?

A practical use. My favourite movie last year was The Social Network and one day I’d like to work with David Fincher. Everything he does is interesting, and he got the best out of an actor I really admire, Jesse Eisenberg.

Mr. Pattinson, you’re an idol. Who’s yours?

Jack Nicholson. He had a huge career and he always owned his characters. Whereas, in the end, for a lot of people, I am just Edward the vampire and in my life I’m just Robert. We share the same hairstyle. But when I read an entire article about my hair, I laugh my best British laugh.

By the way: what brought you from London to Hollywood?

Difficult work perspectives. I didn’t have great experiences as an actor, I had posed rather awkwardly as a model; then, cinema. In Vanity Fair I was Reese’s son, while in this last movie I’m her lover.

To be honest, not a great curriculum.

No, and I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to be an actor; I had always thought I was going to be a writer or a musician. But then I fell In love with the adventurous aspect of cinema. And I found the discipline, the ethic, and let me tell you, the inner call, which helped me to give a proper structure to my life.

Fame was next, a non-human fame: the vampire. How did Rob Pattinson protect his persona from fans only interested in a celebrity?

I am a cinephile, I’ve always loved cinema. It’s a passion. Cinema has the most important, and the truest communicative task: it makes us dream, it broadens our imagination, and yes, it can help us become better people. I started studying French just because I was interested in the nouvelle vague director Godard. All of this doesn’t make me a “celebrity” even if I later entered the Hollywood system.

How important was your family in your education?

I have a solid family behind me, two sisters, Lizzie is a musician like me; yes I play piano and guitar and I even wrote songs for Twilight. I remain an Englishman, I still remember my days in a public school, the Harrodian, where I wasn’t an extraordinary student, but always curious and open to cultural variety. My family taught me a sense of reality, of duty, the refusal of any kind of hysteria and I’ve never considered myself superior to Americans because I’m from London. I hate every kind of snobbery: it has often racism behind it.

We know very little about your life. As a man and an actor, how would you describe yourself?

My father Richard sold cars for years, my mother works as an agent in the show business. I started acting almost by chance at school and I played in a band. I never asked for too many clothes and shoes, and I’ve never been a social climber and I’ll never be. I read a lot and I still do; my favourites are the Russian writers, Dostoevskij, Nabokov. They make fun of me on set because I’m always reading stuff. Lately I’ve been reading again my favourite English writer, Martin Amis. His books are extraordinary accounts of contemporary life and psychology.

What was the turning point from the status of young actor to superstar?

I came to a point where I said: I’m going to be a professional actor, looking for the origins of my characters, making something real out of this ephemeral job. This will allow me to live the life I want to live, to be active in green politics, to be a citizen of the world. Fame is an handicap, not a privilege, it often complicates things. I try to not fall in the web of top class hotels, first-class flights, designers sending you tons of stuff, thousands of girls everywhere..

Can you resist everything? Can you define yourself by what you refuse? You’re immune to gossip?

My private life is off-limit. I’ve never spoken about my flirts, I’m not a man for short and superficial love affairs. I don’t talk about my relationships with female friends, not to mention how I don’t talk about my relationship with Kristen Stewart, an actress I admire because she’s a real person, and a real actress. It was the chemistry I had with her helped me to get my role in Twilight. I don’t let people take pics of the houses I rented both in New York and London. When I’m in L.A. I live mostly in hotels. You can live very well in the anonymity of a hotel room, especially when you have a piano to play.

How important do you consider your style, the clothes you wear?

I like dressing Calvin Klein, English shoes, Tshirts and comfortable jeans. I’ve always been influenced by James Dean’s look. Yesterday elegance was conformism, today it’s individuality. Maybe we should find a balance.

Memorable travels around the world?

I avoid going on vacation to trendy places, I prefer road trips with friends, like students who choose nice motels, cafes in the depths of America, where a lot of people can’t even recognize me. Simple people who teach me how life is not Twilight. I travel to keep my feet firmly on the ground.

Are you interested in the real world?

I’m still interested into green politics and animals, preferably without paparazzi following me around. I have a dog, my true life companion, that’s never going to be in a photo shoot. This whole animal welfare thing is deeply in my heart: it was a real joy to be able to work with so many different species in WFE. I have a democratic and liberal concept of my life.

Congratulations. But don’t you think this is a super-serious attitude for an actor famous like you?

This is me, just me: I’m not interested in casual relationships, I need to know people, I’m not making an existential statement here: simply, I want a family, with 2 or 3 kids. Not funny? I really wish I could talk to animals more than to people who think they know me just from my movies.

Cosmopolis, Cronenberg’s move, is really going to be super-serious, from DeLillo’s novel, a metaphorical trip into America before 9/11.

I portray a contemporary man: ambitions, velleity, subterranean anxiety. Great stuff.

    Sorry I meant to say that he is one of a kind

  • tpec1991 SaveaHORSE/RideaVAMP!

    I wish I could see him with his dog…. wonder what type is… mmmhh??? and where does he keep it, since he is traveling a lot!!!!

  • TeamIdDoRPatz/BlueEyedFMeStare

    I would never say one bad thing about him…he’s literally too good of a person =)

  • kit_”bhealthyfckevry1″

    oh my god i think im in love
    he just said the words every woman wants to hear

    best. interview. ever.

  • kit_”bhealthyfckevry1″

    i cant help but think the same thing. it was the most heartwarming interview ive ever read, but it was not exactly what were used to from rob
    however, im willing to believe that this is his quiet, private side

  • kit_”bhealthyfckevry1″

    lets be real. they did not make this up. and i sincerely hope they did not just cut and paste random arguments.

    they probably cut out any “fillers” (um, well, really, etc) and it got translated from English to italian and back to engish again, so its naturally going to have a more formal tone

  • Anonymous

    Nice article if it’s true or not. Any printed material from mags will always be skewed to sell itself. Writers can do whatever they want, but editors have a say to put a twist on things. It has been said many times in publishing things and should be used with a grain of salt unless it is live from their mouths.
    Please don’t hate or think I’m being negative, because I’m not, I’m just trying to save face value for what it’s worth.
    I love Rob and feel sometimes mags like to create drama to work against us or him. At least the pics are awesome!!

  • dRE – dogReadingEclipse

    is the person being interviewed another rob? just sayin

  • cmb897_TeamRobsten=P

    OME that’s exactly what I thought as I was reading this! It’s way too formal, and it’s too personal for someone who says that personal life is off bounce.. Idk I just think there’s something fishy about this article. Rob has always spoke well..Just not this well ya know??

  • KL☼ W4E♥ Ami♣ BD1♂2♀ Csmpls♦

    I can’t find anything bad either ♥

  • KL☼ W4E♥ Ami♣ BD1♂2♀ Csmpls♦

    I think it’s just English to Italian back to English translating…plus a lot of summarizing for, yes, editing purposes. Being in the writing business…it happens when you have a limited number of pages to fill, too. ☺ Rob wishing he could talk to animals…I can so hear him saying just that, lol. And it’s fun to imagine him and Kristen have 2 – 3 kids together and being a family…awwwwwe ♥

  • Wen

    I have a feeling that these answers are a writers compilation of many of Rob’s comments taken from other interviews. They seem re-written to make them into a “new” article, but really they’ve lost any and all feeling and depth that Rob really transmits. He’s doesn’t answers questions like this and he doesn’t transmit this depth of snobbery. Sorry, but the interview should reflect the real person….not who you wish they were. I think if Rob read this article he would be saying “who the F is this guy?”

  • Renee

    I’m guessing it could be an email interview…giving him time to think about his answers.

  • jrpattz

    I love this interview! It puts us in touch with a small aspect of who Robert really is. I highly respect him. I will always be in love with his looks. Bravo Robert, I think you are great.

  • kit_”bhealthyfckevry1″

    yeah i agree, i mean even though it does sound kind of formal, most of the things he’s talking about sound like things he would say. like, i know he likes jesse eisenberg and he want kids and he loves animals and stuff like that

  • newborneyes

    you want a family and trhee kids what a coincidence me too………. but with you!!! I love what he said about his relaship with girls he is a gentleman!

  • KL☼ W4E♥ Ami♣ BD1♂2♀ Csmpls♦

    True, true! And not all words translate the same so formal ones might be used to get the idea of what he’s saying across. Like you, I hear Rob in there…♥

  • TeamEC1918

    Love him!

  • Me

    This is NOT a real Rob interview. Totally fabricated. They didn’t even use recent pics! Come on people.

  • JeanV

    English to Italian to English. Very droll.

  • jomc

    it wont come out like him because its translated! into italian and back into english!

  • Kasey

    Hi…..Let me–as a 70 year old who adores Rob–with my husband’s approval LOL–give you my viewpoint of this article. I know most of you are young and I do–believe it or not—remember those days. However, I’ve experienced a lot of life and “adored” many celebrities in my day–Elvis in particular :) I believe this article from Rob is totally “spot on.” I firmly believe this is the true Robert Pattinson. He is extremely intelligent (shool grades while average don’t even count) and a well-rounded individual. He is an intellectual and that says a lot about him. He is into the “arts,” and appreciates “normal” things. Now….he is probably the most handsome man I’ve ever seen. He knocked Sean Connery right off my radar. My husband understands the “crush” aspect I have on Rob–but worries not at all. Woder why? HA. I’m sure he is concerned that Rob will seek me out for a serious relationship–not just a bite on the neck. :) Eventually, Rob will find someone to be serious with and have a family of his own; when he has time for commitment. He has certainly had a wonderful family with his parents and siblings. I believe he wants the same for himself. And he is not interested in celebrity status except for the possibility of helping with saving the planet’s ecological status. That’s my take for all of you, just a viewpoint from an older fan–and believe me, I AM a fan (and, yes, the older part too :) It seems like I was just 24 myself “a minute ago” and yet here I am 70 (thank you Lord). I still ride horses, go out on our ATV and went Ziplining last year….
    A forever (as long as my “forever” lasts) fan of Rob’s…..robsmyguy



  • Empresssb1984

  • So Fake

    This was a translation of an Italian interview, I doubt he said some of those things. The Italians are well known for making up quotes.
