Robert Pattinson showed off a range of emotions from crazy humor and wry smiles to pensive thought and tousle-haired ambiguity in a wide-ranging interview ahead of the London premiere of his new movie “The Rover.” It was Rob at his many faceted best.
He met the media and fans at a “Meet The FilmMakers” event at the Apple Store on Regent Street. Co-star Guy Pearce and Director David Michod joined him.
The British actor exuded a kind of effortless James Dean cool, wearing a black waist jacket, blue skinny jeans and an open plaid shirt with a white tee underneath.
His hair looked like he’d just gotten out of bed and had a three-day growth on his face at the very least. But he was attentive and focused discussing the movie.
In an earlier interview, Rob described his new film as “a story about survivors.”
“I think they’re quite simple people in extraordinary circumstances,” he said. “They’re trying to figure out how to live when it seems like there’s not a lot of hope.”
Rob also seemed to be glad that the blockbuster “Twilight” film series was behind him. He had two films, “The Rover,” and “Maps to the Stars” show at Cannes this year, which delighted him.
“I’m really happy these two films got into Cannes, it’s kind of exactly what I wanted,” he said. “It’s nice – I just get to work with people I’ve wanted to work with for years and years, and just been really lucky in the last year, with this really cool stuff.”
