From ET: ‘Cosmopolis Stars Praise Robert Pattinson’
Robert Pattinson was clearly the star of last night’s Cosmopolis premiere in New York City, where he made one of his first scheduled public appearances.
Last night was all about the highly anticipated David Cronenberg film adapted from a Don DeLillo novel, and Pattinson shared what it was like working with the highly respected director.
“It’s funny, everyone asks, ‘Oh, like Cronenberg, he must be so strange,’ [but] he’s just the sweetest, most patient person. He’s kind of the main reason I wanted to do the movie in the first place,” he told ET.
Cronenberg had high praise for Pattinson as well.
“Well, he’s terrific,” he said. “I think because of Twilight‘s success, people haven’t been taking him too seriously as an actor, but you look at his other movies and he’s really, really good. And I think in this movie, it’s obvious that he’s actually sensationally good.”
“He was great,” Pattinson’s costar Paul Giamatti added. “I mean, when I showed up to do it, he had already been working on it and he was so ready, and so into his character it actually calmed me and helped me, because I just got thrown into the middle of it. He was huge. Thank God he was there, because he was great … and so good.”
Check out the video to hear how his costar Emily Hampshire felt about giving him a prostate exam during their scenes together, and Sarah Gadon on why “there are not a lot of 25-year-olds” like Pattinson.
Cosmopolis opens this Friday, August 17.
Here’ s a new behind the scenes video and interview with ET
Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon find forbidden love under the big top in their new period drama ‘Water for Elephants,’ and Reese says the film is “full of peril and drama and danger and love and romance.”
“It’s that kind of romance that is about second chances,” explains Reese. “Sometimes you can be in your life and sort of trapped in a circumstance that you just can’t get out of, and one day someone comes along and throws you a rope and you have an opportunity at a new life.”
Based on the best-selling novel by Sara Gruen, ‘Water for Elephants’ follows an elderly man (Hal Holbrook) reminiscing about his days working as an animal caretaker at a circus. A young veterinary school student (Robert) witnessing the beauty and brutality of life under the big top, he falls for Marlena (Reese), the captivating star performer, and suffers the wrath of her charismatic but dangerous husband, August (Christoph Waltz).
“He falls in love with her at first sight,” says Robert of his character. “She just seems kind of magical to him, and she doesn’t see herself as that at all. She sees herself as just like a work horse, that’s it, and thinks there’s no fantasy in life and all, and he just refuses to see her as anything else other than this complete fantasy figure.”

From ET Online:
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson share a smooch and more in the upcoming ‘Water for Elephants,’ and the onscreen lovebirds are talking about their forbidden movie romance with ET! They also share a nugget of obscure movie trivia — they were once cast in a film as mother and son!
In ‘Water for Elephants,’ Reese plays the married star performer in a circus who catches the attention of a bachelor animal caretaker, played by ‘Twilight’ star Rob. When ET visited the Los Angeles set during production on the film last summer, Reese rode atop an enormous elephant for a scene involving an elaborate 1930s parade.
Reese gushed about sharing love scenes with Rob, proclaiming, “I am so lucky. He’s so amazing and wonderful and sweet and just the nicest guy too, so you can just add that to the soup. I mean, he’s just so good looking and he’s a really nice person.”
Rob said the pair hadn’t yet shot their love scenes, but shared, “Reese has only got two days [of work] left [on the film]. So … they must expect me to be very professional about it.” He also gave a tidbit about one love scene — he says it ends with his character getting beaten up!
“We’ll probably just laugh the whole time, because all we do is just laugh and joke around,” Reese predicted of filming the scenes.
Although Reese and Rob are an onscreen couple in ‘Water for Elephants,’ they had a very different movie relationship when they filmed 2004’s ‘Vanity Fair’ — mother and son! Despite Reese being only ten years older then Rob, he was cast as her son, though his scenes later landed on the cutting room floor.
Reese recalls of meeting Rob back then, “He was walking down this corridor and I turned to the director, and I said, ‘That’s my son? He’s so good looking!’ I was like, ‘He’s so hot!'”
For his part, Rob remembers, “Even then, I realized on the set, I was like, I look too old to be playing her son. I mean, that’s probably why I was cut.”
