From Hey U Guys

(…) With Berenice Bejo and Liam Cunningham taking on starring roles, not to mention the breakthrough role for the young Tom Sweet – much attention will be placed on the supporting performance of Robert Pattinson, who continues to indulge in innovative, independent features that veer far away from the projected career many had expected after the Twilight Saga. Having spoken to Olivier Assayas following his collaboration with Kristen Stewart in Clouds of Sils Maria, the French auteur admitted the actresses’ ardent following was a strain on the production at times, with fans swarming around the set – but Corbet said he didn’t have any issues on that front.
“I think that’s changed a lot, and probably just three of four years ago that was a bigger problem for Robert,” he said. “Rob is working with most of the best directors in the world right now, and I think the more you do that, the less of the wrong kind of attention you’ll have. Everyone just grows up and hopefully lets it all go. I was in a funny position because I was in a kids movie called Thunderbirds when I was 13 years old, and if it had not been a box office failure then I’d have been associated with it, but I wasn’t so much because nobody really saw it, especially in the US. But I understand how it feels to have a very particular kind of interest but at a very young age become involved in something that is not necessarily representative of who you are, or what you want to make.”
“There are a lot of routes into how people arrive into doing what they feel they’re meant to do, but it’s very hard because these movies can be a little bit like baby photos, it’s quite embarrassing to live out your entire youth in a very public way, or at least it was for me.”(…)

Culture

The oddest thing about Robert Pattinson’s new film is, well, it’s all odd. From a tilt of the camera that barely shows the actors, to a story about fascism that you need to work really hard at even to know it’s about fascism, it is an understatement to say that The Childhood of a Leader is so far removed from its star’s huge vampire breakthrough, Twilight, that it will share absolutely none of the same fans.

It’s like Justin Bieber giving up chart-friendly pop hits to record an album of Indonesian electro. So, in a members’ club in London, over morning coffee, I ask the actor, why — why do something this peculiar?

“Because nothing else exists any more!” he says, laughing. He laughs a lot, a little nerdy, like a teenager at home watching a particularly good episode of South Park. The larger films, he explains, just aren’t that interesting. In the 1990s, there were the options of mainstream dramas or adult action films, but now… “Your only option is to do a superhero movie,” he says, referring to the 71 comic-book adaptations currently in the works. “You can do a superhero, or you can do indies. That’s it!” He sounds exasperated. “You cannot even do Nicolas Cage movies,” he says. “You can’t even do Con Air. I would love to do Con Air.”
