New Zealand Herald Interviews Rob

'Tis the season for new interviews! New Moon means new interviews and appearances. One of these days I'll get my act together with a schedule of appearances, but for now, enjoy this article.
"I had three days off between Remember Me and Eclipse and then I've had to start learning Comanche and bareback riding for Unbound Captives. I don't only want to do the same part. I'm doing Bel Ami, based on the Guy de Maupassant novel in January as well, and I don't really know how I'm going to fit that in. I have to gain weight – but I don't think they'll let me put on much as I have to shoot the final Twilight movie afterwards. I have to look older, as the character Georges Duroy has been living hard for a good six years just getting drunk all the time. So I want to look a bit haggard."

While he says that in Remember Me he is basically playing himself, Georges Duroy probably is also closer to his own reality. Currently Pattinson lives out of three suitcases. "I live in hotel rooms," he admits. He had a grungy rented flat in London's Soho but let it go when it essentially became a crash pad for his buddies.

The young London-born star has kept his close friends close, and his family, too. "The fame thing's been good for one thing. My friends I grew up with are musicians and they were involved with a few songs on the Twilight soundtrack and it's amazing what's happened to them. They're doing tours of America and they're selling out every single show. My friend Sam Bradley did a show at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles and it sold out quicker on telephone presales than any show that's been there. Sam's unsigned [to a record deal] and there was no advertising, nothing. It's insane what you can do just by that connection."
As much as we love you Rob, we have to thank you for introducing us to Sam, Bobby, and Marcus. (And Tom, too, I'm not leaving you out!). Very talented musicians who have expanded the musical horizons of many fans, we all win.

I'm nearly as excited to see Remember Me, Unbound Captives and Bel Ami as I am to see New Moon. After seeing Rob in his other movies, I'm really looking forward to the variety of roles he's capable of performing.

Thanks to Robsessed.
