Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen once again murmurs words of wisdom to Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan when they should be in class studying. But that’s high school.
In this extended sequence from The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Bella tells Edward she’s not at all into birthday parties. Edward reminds her that there are worse tragedies in the world. Personally, I don’t think Bella looks fully convinced.
Edward also says that the last time any of the vampires celebrated a birthday was when Bing Crosby was still at the top of the charts. I’m not quite sure when that was, but I’m guessing it was sometime in the ’30s. Or perhaps ’40s.
Then Edward changes the subject from parties and music charts to Shakespeare. "Look at Romeo, you know? He killed his true love out of sheer … stupidity. Imagine living with that." Bella looks like she’s trying hard, but can’t quite imagine it.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson (as an apparition), and Edi Gathegi get together in this extended scene from The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Bella is walking in the woods when she suddenly sees Laurent out of the blue. Laurent isn’t someone Bella (or anyone in her or his right mind) would like to hang out with. Luckily for her, Edward — who’s always watching over her — shows up by way of special visual effects that only Bella and the audience can see.
Edward coaches her to lie, but Bella is a rotten liar.
This is the eye-for-an-eye bit, during which Laurent reminds Bella that Edward has left her totally unprotected and that Victoria wants her very dead. And that he’ll be doing her a favor by killing her quickly, for she’s so "mouth-watering."
Little does he know.
Australian musician (and fellow Twi-girl) Lee Safar is about as independent as they come. She writes, merchandises and markets her own brand of music and her inspirational brand known as ‘Dream Angel’.
“My songs are about who I am,” Safar said. “I write them as they are happening. The tough part is saying what is going on with you.”
A former Barista in her native OZ, Safar has an obsession with coffee. “The only decent coffee in Los Angeles is Intelligencia,” Safar said from her temporary home on the West Coast.
Safar is in the U.S. for the next few months, focusing on her music full time. Last week she opened for the band MuteMath before the New Orleans Vampire Baseball game to benefit Haiti.
Her three best friends made the trip to the states with Safar in the beginning of March but returned to Australia after the New Orleans gig. She said she will miss them terribly but is completely focused on her music.
“It (music) becomes something that is your focus,” she said. “You don’t need food or to breathe. There isn’t anything more real than being honest.”
The honesty in her music spoke to the Twilight fan base that got behind her song and video ‘I Am Here’, which nearly made it onto the New Moon soundtrack. Hope is not lost for fans of music from the Twilight Saga. Safar hopes to make it onto the soundtrack of one of the two remaining films (see interview below).
One of the most unique things about Lee is her desire to remain unsigned by a major label because “it would disconnect me from the intimacy I have with my fans.” Safar often tweets with her fans via @leesafar on Twitter and realizes that where she is and where she is headed are tied to her devoted fan base.
She is equally passionate about them. “I want that personal touch. They (the fans) give so much to me,” she said. “A label would take it away.”
By remaining an independent artist in the truest sense, Safar can keep the cost of her music down for her fans. “Fans can support my music by buying it,” she said. “I am a full time musician and if the fans go to buy my new single from my page that money comes to me and I can use that money to record a new album.”
Safar already has the next album written and wants to get the word out to her fans that all the revenues she receives from iTunes purchases of her music will go directly to making that album become a reality.
“They (fans) honor me by taking the time to listen to my songs,” Safar said. “I want to know what they think of the Dream Angel podcasts so I can keep doing them and give them what they want.”
Safar took the time to talk about what inspires her, the “beauty” in Robert Pattinson’s voice when he sings and when she fell in love with Edward Cullen.
TTP: When did you get your start in the music business and when did you become a full time musician?
LS: I wrote my first song about 6 years ago and became a full time musician only just recently. This is a tough game. I am still in the process of growing both my brands globally- Music and my inspirational brand 'Dream Angel' and I am doing it as an independent artist so that I can make sure that both me and my fans are best looked after. That is very important to me- making sure that we're both happy. Making sure that I'm around for a long time means that we're going to have to start pushing sales....Merchandise from the website, song downloads from my website & iTunes, ticket sales to gigs etc....all this goes to recording more music and being able to keep paying my band!
TTP: How many trips have you made to the states?
LS: This will be my 4th to the states. I absolutely love America. The culture here supports my way of thinking more than in Australia. People really want you to do well and they want to support you however they can.
TTP: How did you get involved with New Moon and trying to get on that soundtrack?
LS: That story involves the very lovely Stuart Henshall, someone who is now a dear friend of mine. It's such a beautiful story. Stu and I were staying with mutual friends in an apartment in London. We started talking about what Stu was trying to achieve having just graduated from college in PR. He felt frustrated and confused about the way ahead. He wanted to make headway in his career but didn't know how. We started speaking about my journey in music and my quest to live my dreams. A conversation that felt like it went for half an hour went on for 4 hours. I gave him a copy of my debut EP "Who I've Become" to listen to. He went into his room and woke up the next morning, after having listened to my CD obsessively all night, and said, "OMG this is amazing. We need to have this heard by the world. I'm going to take you to see something today. Have you seen 'Twilight'? Your music belongs in this franchise."We went that day and saw the movie and I was immediately obsessed.
The next day, Stu got in contact with Emma Clark (AKA @nuttymadam), a very popular "Twilight" vlogger in the UK and told her about me. Stu was working very hard at getting the word out to the Twifans about my music. We posted a vlog telling everyone that we were really excited about having a chance at maybe getting on the soundtrack. Emma Clark saw the blog and posted it to her channel. In 24 hours it had about 4,000 hits. Stu started asking Twifans which song of mine they thought would fit "New Moon" the best. I had "I'm Here" in mind and it turns out that they did, too. A few weeks later I headed to L.A. and met my now-L.A.-attorney, Michael Golland who got things rolling with Summit! It truly is the Dream Angel process at work!
TTP: Have you submitted anything for the Eclipse soundtrack and have you heard anything?
LS: I'd love to have something on either Eclipse on Breaking Dawn however my preference would be Breaking Dawn! I have some great ideas for songs on Eclipse but I'm more excited about an idea I have for Breaking Dawn!
TTP: Who was your musical inspiration?
LS: There are a few and they come from loads of different genres. As a kid I listened to what my mum listened to which was a lot of pop music- James Taylor, Carol King, the Bee Gee's, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder etc....when I was at school I listened to a lot of Alanis Morissette, Sarah McLachlan, Jewel, Janet Jackson, PM Dawn, Arabic Music, and some totally cheesy pop that I'm not going to admit to in a million years!
TTP: What rocks your world right now? (music, movies, books, coffee ;) or peanut butter?
LS: TOTALLY PEANUT BUTTER!!! LOL you guys have the most interesting way of using it. My obsession with Peanut Butter isn't normal. It's kinda like blood is to Vampires- Once I have it I have to have soooooo much more!!!! LOL
Coffee is a big big deal to me because of how passionate I am about the coffee industry. I was lucky enough to live in a country that holds the profession of Barista in high regard and as such I was able to leave a corporate job to be follow my dream to be a highly skilled Barista. I have now left that world but my love and passion for it have not stopped. I intend on staying connected with the industry and do what I can to improve the profile of highly skilled barista's everywhere!
The music that is rocking my world right now is RnB & Hip Hop! Surprising I know, but recently 3 of my girlfriends from Sydney came with me to LA and we did a bunch of clubbing. The stuff that is out there at the moment is sick! Pushing so many boundaries with regards to the technology, and lyrically there are some boundaries being pushed also! LOVE IT!!!
TTP: I know we talked about it but I wanted to get it directly from you - when did you fall in love with Edward Cullen?
LS: OMG The moment he and Bella are up against the rocks is incredible.....DANG! I almost slide of my chair *blush
TTP: What do you think of Rob Pattinson's music and/or Kristen Stewart's performance in ‘The Runaways’ and singing on the soundtrack for the movie?
LS: I find Rob's music to be very raw and honest. I can hear a lot of vulnerability in it. He's not acting when he sings, you can hear how genuine he's being. It doesn't matter that he's not overly trained because the beauty in his voice is in the honesty of how he delivers the lyric. I haven't seen ‘The Runaways’ so I can't comment on Kristen's performance but I'm sure she did an amazing job.

“That’s not my scene,” he told me at the recent BAFTA Award ceremony in London. I’m more than happy to do the normal things and buy the things I bought before all this madness kicked off.”
In fact, the 23-year-old actor, known among British media as “Our Patz,” said he was stunned to open the tabloids and find pictures of himself “buying underwear at my local store.”
“These guys must be hiding in the rails or something,” he said of the paparazzi. The star of the “Twilight” movies, born in West London, said, “I didn’t go into acting because I wanted to be famous, I got into acting because I loved the creation and the making of good credible drama. Fame is just an extra added on.”
Back in London to film “Bel Ami” with “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman, Pattinson admits that he is unsure of what to do at premieres and other red carpet events. “Although I like meeting fans and love the response from them,” he said, “I’m far happier going down to my local pub, having a drink and sitting chatting to friends. That’s when I’m most relaxed.”
Pattinson also expressed admiration for his “Remember Me” co-star Pierce Brosnan, known to audiences for many years as cinema’s James Bond.
“You get to learn so much from these people,” Pattinson said, “and Pierce has always been an acting hero of mine.”

The teen heartthrob proves there’s more to life than ‘Twilight’ as he talks to Time Out about his ‘serious’ indie romance, ‘Remember Me’
The hum of nervous excitement buzzing around Robert Pattinson’s hotel suite this morning is such that you half expect him to walk out with golden skin and alarmingly sharp teeth. But in the flesh, the ‘Twilight’ star is warm, earnest and posher than you might imagine, with something of the teenage schoolboy to him, even down to the frayed cuffs on his jacket. In our closely monitored chat (20 minutes! No questions about Kristin!) Pattinson talks about his role as chain-smoking student loser Tyler Hawkins in the US indie movie ‘Remember Me’, about creating ‘mystique’ as an actor and about sucking blood off his co-star’s lip.
You looked scared stiff when you were handing out a Bafta award last month. Are you getting shyer?
‘I think I am, yeah! The more interviews you do, the more stuff you say to people. You suddenly get worried that people are more likely to judge you. If no one knows anything about you, then you can say whatever you want – and just contradict yourself later. But the more contradictions you make, the scope gets narrower as to what you can say before people get pissed off.’
Where does ‘Remember Me’ fit into the ‘Twilight’ craziness?
‘I’d read tons of scripts after the first “Twilight” movie and this was one of maybe two that I liked. I didn’t work for the whole year after “Twilight”. What did I do? Nothing! [Laughs] It was really nice. I was still so used to hanging around most of the time when I was in England. And now that I’ve been working a lot, I can’t imagine going a month without fretting. So now, I’m doing job-to-job-to-job. Which is a dangerous thing to do because you have a film coming out every three months. It’s over-saturation. You have to work a bit on creating some kind of mystique.’
Mystique? Is that what you feel you need? Or what you feel people want?
‘I see people who are in newspapers and magazines all the time. If they’re in every single week, I’m far less interested in their movies. So, yeah, I am always a little bit wary.’
Your new film ‘Remember Me’ is set in the summer of 2001. Did you have any reservations about fictionalising 9/11?
‘When I first read it, I didn’t think it was contentious. I thought it flowed organically; it’s anchored in reality. It hit hard for me so I wanted to portray the same emotions that I felt the first time I read it. I’m terrified of people thinking it’s manipulative. I read the script and I felt this should be made.’
You get beaten up a lot in ‘Remember Me’. Was it fun to act like a real person for a change?
‘Yeah, it’s always enjoyable smashing things up. I guess that’s one of the funniest things about it – from the first fight, which is such a severe beating, there are all these wounds on his face, for two thirds of the movie [laughs].’
And then your screen girlfriend [Emilie de Ravin] kisses you and she’s got a split lip…
‘There was a big moment, which is in the script, where there’s a kind of kinkiness with the cut in her lip but that got cut from the movie – where I’m sucking a little bit of blood off it [laughs]. I think it was a little bit too weird.’
Is this your first sex scene?
‘No. My first sex scene was in “Little Ashes” when I was about 21, and it was with a guy. And I’m supposed to have a kind of nervous breakdown in the middle of it as well. So that was a nice introduction to it!’
Do you feel like you have something to prove, ‘Twilight’ having been so bankable?
‘I think people are really harsh about anything that becomes successful. It’s really weird. I was looking at this article about “Little Ashes”. “He still hasn’t proved his box office potential. ‘Little Ashes’ bombed.” Could it have been the gay theme? Or, er, the fact that it was only released in 16 cinemas?’
There’s a lot of fags, booze and sex in this movie. What about your younger fans?
‘That’s the least of my concerns. I think it’s so ridiculous, people putting pressure on the arts. I think parents should be the ones who teach kids. The more you try to hide things like that, the more exciting and appealing they are. [Grins] The abstinence movement is only a reaction to everybody being so obsessed with sex for the past 20 years and it being so open to everyone. It’s crazy to think that young people, when their hormones are most raging, that they’re suddenly like, “Oh, I don’t want any of that.”’
You’re currently filming ‘Bel Ami’ with Uma Thurman. You play a real swine.
‘I thought it was one of the funniest scripts I’d ever read. When they made the movie in the ’50s with Angela Lansbury, they had to change the story. The novel is about this guy who screws everybody over and seduces all these women and completely gets away with everything. And in the first film, they had to have him shot because they thought that audiences wouldn’t be able to accept it. In this one it’s the total opposite. This guy is a complete arsehole, so arrogant and stubborn and self-righteous about everything. He remains an arsehole to the end and everyone congratulates him for it.’
‘Remember Me’ opens on Apr 2.

Kristen Stewart says she’s learned not to worry about what her parents will think when she’s playing more grown up roles.
“I was more nervous about it when I was younger,” the actress told reporters at a special press day for The Runaways, the film based on the 1970s all-girl teenage rock band of the same name.
According to About.com, when it comes to playing wild rocker Joan Jett in the film, the Twilight star has admitted her parents have had to learn to accept what they see on screen.
“It was like a slow wearing down of like, ‘Okay, Kristen’s going to do what she’s going to do. She’s just going to do these movies’,” she said.
“Not that they were against it … I sort of didn’t care any more. I was like, ‘Are you guys cool with this?’” she explained.
The actress also admitted she was incredibly nervous about meeting the real-life rocker.
“I met Joan after I got the part and it was so scary because it sort of felt like this is the meeting that either fires me or keeps me on,” she laughed. “My hair was still long. I was about to do New Moon. I sort of felt like she was going to look at me and go, ‘What makes you think…?’”

Video 2 – The interviewer compares Tyler to a chocolate dessert, saying that he’s hard on the outside but soft on the inside and what you expect from him is not really what you get from him.
Video 3 – Then he’s asked what he liked about the script and about the role of Tyler after playing vampire Edward in Twilight.
Video 4 – She then states that he started his acting career pretty young in Harry Potter and asks if that was a good “acting school” for a Hollywood star.
Video 5 – She also wants to know where he thinks the fascination for Twilight comes from.
Video 6 – And lastly she says that she noticed that at the Bafta’s, people screamed more for him than Prince William.

*Tell us about the finest men you’ve worked with – included Johnny Depp and Robert Patinson…
- Johnny Depp is one of my favorite actors. When we met on Public Enemies he was genuinely nice. The Lost guys are too, and Robert Pattinson couldn’t be more of a great guy. He’s insanely talented, but I don’t even think he knows that.
*Were you intrigued to be working with him after all the Twilight publicity?
-I didn’t really know who he was! I’ve never been a tabloid reader or a person who follows what somebody is going to the grocery store for.
*You can’t have escaped the Twilight phenomenon though?
-The fan base is wonderful. But shooting with Rob in New York was crazy. There were girls climbing all over him, which did make things difficult. He’d been through it all before but it was very new to me. Because the majority of fans were teenage girls. I felt like, ‘Oh, God, they all hate me.’ You walk out and they’re like, ‘Who’s this girl with the guy we’re here to see?’ but then they saw me smiling, and they we’re like ‘Oh she’s actually nice!’
*You got to kiss Rob too…
-That was a very spontaneous thing actually, which tabloid-wise came out as us making out on the beach, but really we were filming.
*And now you have to say he’s a good kisser, right?
-(Laughs) It’s in contract, yes.
*You split from your husband of three years last year. Are you happily single or looking for love again?
-I don’t talk about that stuff anymore- I’ve learnt my lesson! But I think in any situation, the important thing is having people around you that love and care about and respect you. People you can be open and honest about everything with.
*What’s best about your life?
-Happiness for me is spending time with my friends and family. I love my career but my family comes first and I’m lucky that I’m close to them. I try to get back to Australia at least twice a year. It’s great when I see them.
*You’ve been in Hawaii filming the final season of Lost – Hollywood must be pretty manic in comparison?
Yeah, but I’m such a homebody –I don’t like go to shopping where I know the paparazzi will be and I don’t eat in those kind of restaurants so you won’t see me dancing on tables or falling over outside clubs. I love staying at home with my girlfriends, watching a funny film like ‘Heathers.’
*Ever been chatted up by another celeb?
*Who is the most famous person in you phone?
-I guess Rob’s is the obvious choice.
*Any red-carpet disasters?
-No, thanks God. But my tip would be please, whatever you’re wearing, wear underwear!
*What scares you?
-Mostly meeting people on your first day of work.
*What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought in the past 12 month?
-I’m buying my mum a laptop so we can Skype to each other.

Summit has issued a press release detailing exciting news concerning New Moon DVD sales. The weekend launch of the DVD and Blu-Ray sold 4 million copies! From the PR: Summit Entertainment’s Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger stated, “Once again the incredibly dedicated fans of the TWILIGHT SAGA came out in massive numbers this weekend for the opportunity to be one of the first take home the second movie in the series. As we have said all along, the fans are what make this franchise and we once again thank them for their support.”
“The support that we have received from our retail partners in accommodating the incredible demand for the title has been nothing short of amazing,” said Steve Nickerson, Summit’s President of Home Entertainment. “The ground we have broken with in-store partnerships and the availability of this title has been a positive influence on the retail DVD business.”
Look into my eyes… Ok! Kristen Stewart was the envy of ladies across the world when she attended a Twilight: New Moon fan party in Munich with Robert in Novemeber 2009. Loving the grey pinstripe suit!
Ooh, this could be one of our favourite Robsten (geddit?) looks. At the Twilight: New Moon fan event in Madrid in November 2009, Kristen wowed in a sheer top with flashes of turquoise – and Rob looked hot in a cool leather jacket.
We could hardly contain our excitement when Twilight: New Moon came out, and Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson stepped out on the promotional trail again. The pair looked stylish at a photo call at the Hotel Crillon in Paris in November 2009.
Kristen Stewart opted for a smoky eye and a graphic-print dress at the MTV Movie Awards in May 2009. And Robert was feelin’ blue in a cute coat.
For a Twilight photo call in December 2008, Kristen turned heads in a stripy monochrome mini, while Rob went for a sexy-scruffy look with bed-head hair and jeans.
Kristen Stewart got leathered at the Tokyo premiere of Twilight in February 2009. Her russet-tinted waves were worn loose while Robert, looking smart in a grey suit, kept a protective arm around her.
Robert Pattinson could make knees buckle with that stare! The actor donned a cute chocolate coat at the Munich premiere of Twilight in December 2008, while Kristen was cute in a cream bustier dress.
Let’s get our heads together! It’s no wonder Robert Pattinson couldn’t keep his eyes off Kristen Stewart at the London premiere of Twilight in December 2008 – she looked hot in that one-shouldered black mini.
Cuddle on the red carpet: R-Patz and Kristen got up close at the Twilight film premiere in LA in November 2008. We just love Kristen’s one-shoulder colour-block dress.
At the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008, a sun-kissed Robert Pattinson simply smouldered while Kristen worked a cute print mini in September 2008.
So why couldn't she do it?
"The Runaways," Floria Sigismondi's biopic that, of course, stars Stewart as femme-punk icon Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as her bandmate-rival-lover Cherie Currie, earned an extremely modest $800,000 in its opening weekend. For most limited releases, that number wouldn't be horrible. But the film opened on 244 screens, meaning it averaged a paltry $3,300 per screen. Given the die-hards (or Twi-hards) you'd expect would turn out for a Kristen Stewart debut, those numbers aren't impressive; in fact, they're a lot more punk than glam.
Pundits on Monday had plenty of reasons for the disappointing performance. Certainly the movie's R-rating hurt; younger Stewart fans might have bought tickets had they not been restricted from doing so by the MPAA. (Bob Berney, the head of distributor Apparition, noted that the rating "possibly ke[pt] some of the younger audience away.")
But there may be a deeper lesson here about Stewart: For all her acting versatility, when she strays from her "Twilight" wheelhouse, the fans don't roll with her. That was, after all, also the message some experts gleaned from her first post-"Twilight" movie, "Adventureland," which grossed just $16 million domestically despite getting some marketing play as a Stewart vehicle (and not three months after "Twilight" blew off the box-office doors). It's a lesson that's especially pointed with "Runaways" because Stewart, in inhabiting the role of Joan Jett, is in many ways picking up where Bella Swan left off. She's playing the moody rebel in both, yet fans apparently only want to see her playing a certain kind of moody rebel.
A similar point could be inferred from Stewart's "Twilight' co-star Robert Pattinson, who just last week released his first mainstream movie in which he doesn't play a vampire. With the romantic drama "Remember Me," Pattinson was taking on a genre even more difficult than period music-themed biopics, but, like Stewart, was also echoing parts of his "Twilight" performance (the tortured-lover part).
That should have locked up a chunk of his fan base. But the movie wound up grossing $14 million in its first two weeks -- a (slightly) more impressive number than "Runaways" until you realize it opened on more than 2,000 screens. Its per-screen opening of $3,600, it turns out, mirrors Stewart's own lackluster weekend.
Stewart's and Pattinson's careers are evolving, and both will probably take on a lot more roles by the time all is said and done. It's also worth pointing out that neither saw their recent releases get the full marketing press -- Apparition is an indie label, and Summit, despite some TV and outdoor spending, chose its spots carefully on the lower-budget drama.
Still, the conventional wisdom is that "Twilight" marks the kind of all-consuming phenomenon that can mint stars who, with their reputations solidified, then stalk off to other movies and take their audiences with them. But the last two weeks prove otherwise.
Which brings us to the third leg in the "Twilight" tripod: Taylor Lautner, arguably as hot now as Pattinson was after the first film (if not hotter), has over the past few months booked more movies than a groupie takes cellphone pictures; he's signed on for action-adventures such as Paramount's "Stretch Armstrong" and Lionsgate's "Bourne"-like "Abduction."
Those movies sit in a far more commercial realm, but if Lautner is equally ill-equipped to bring his "Twilight" fan base within him, the career damage could run deeper. It's one thing to take on a small romantic drama with Emilie de Ravin and go out meekly -- it's another to take on a big-budget franchise based on a Hasbro action figure. Suddenly splitting that last "Twilight" movie into two doesn't seem like such a bad career move.

RIGHT now, being Robert Pattinson is a full-time business fraught with danger. The last time I saw him, the British star of the Twilight vampire franchise was in Cannes, surrounded by screaming French fans ready to sink their teeth into his flesh. With the release of Twilight sequel New Moon in November furthering "R-Patz" mania, it's now reached epidemic proportions – fuelled by his relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart.
When we meet in a New York hotel it seems impossible to escape
him. Posters cover the subway for his latest film, Remember Me, while shops are full of Pattinson posters, calendars and T-shirts. Meanwhile, the cover of US magazine Details sees him wedged in between a model's legs (a photo shoot that led him in the accompanying interview to say "I'm allergic to vagina" – a quote that will doubtless follow him to his grave). No wonder, with his five-day stubble, unruly sideburns and unkempt James Dean-like mop of hair, he looks a little haggard.
Dressed in black jeans and a forest green puffer jacket, he says much of his day is about maintaining his sanity. "I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to not be seen," he says. "It's kind of annoying but the payoff is infinite.
If no-one finds out where you're staying, if people aren't following you as soon as you leave your house, if people aren't waiting outside a restaurant if you have dinner there… then it's great. People coming up to you in the street – that's nice. But it's just when people know they can make money off your life, that's when it becomes difficult. They're relentless."
Returning to the city where he shot romantic drama Remember Me hardly helps. When he was filming there last June, hysteria haunted him wherever he walked.
"I don't know why I didn't see it coming. I really thought it was going to be a tiny little film, shot in New York, and I'd be able to just hang out." Instead, with much of the movie filmed in and around the city, it was done to the backdrop of screaming fans and the clicks of the paparazzi.
"Some days it just went completely mad, but you can't do anything," he says. "I remember one day we were filming by NYU, and there was a bunch of paparazzi on the other side of the street. It was in the middle of the scene and they were going 'Look up, look up!' as we were shooting. And when you don't look up, they go 'What? Do you think you're acting or something?'"
While he admits he got "more and more pissed off" with the intrusion, a security guard put it into perspective – telling him to imagine the embarrassment, not to mention the furore, if he tried to punch a pap and missed. "Then you feel fine. No-one can do anything to you then."
Given the role he plays in Remember Me, it's to his credit he never swung a fist off-camera. His angst-ridden character Tyler Hawkins evidently has visions of emulating his Fight Club namesake Tyler Durden, brawling with just about everyone, from his wealthy father (Pierce Brosnan) to louts on the street. While Pattinson previously told me "I'm really just playing myself", he's changed his tune since making the film. "I think it's impossible to do that. It's more your fantasy of yourself – like 'Yeah, I could play that. I get into fights all the time'." So does he? "I don't at all," he says. "I just want to." What about in the past? "I've been beaten up quite a few times. I generally don't see it coming, so I can't really class it as a fight. It's been a few years though."
It's hard to imagine this 23-year-old from Surrey getting into schoolyard scraps. Raised with his two older sisters by his father, a former car dealer, and his mother, who worked in a model agency, his middle-class upbringing in Barnes hardly sounds like the stuff of drama. "I'm always really worried," he says, "because I didn't go through a rebellious streak when I was young, that now I'll suddenly start rebelling against stuff completely unnecessarily."
Considering how his life has been mapped out for him by Twilight, it'd be hard to blame him if he did. Everything was a lot simpler when he was a teenager – and he certainly didn't experience the pressure to succeed that Tyler feels from his alpha-male father. "When I was not trying very hard at school, my dad was like: 'Just leave school and get a job.' No-one ever said: 'You need to do your exams.' It was more like: 'If you're not going to take advantage of things, don't do it. Do something else.'"
This he did. Ditching the idea of going to university, he veered towards acting, something his father first suggested when he urged him to get involved with amateur productions at Barnes Theatre Company.
After a bit part in Mira Nair's film adaptation of Vanity Fair, followed by a more substantial role in a TV film of Wagner's Ring cycle, Ring Of The Nibelungs, Pattinson's big break came in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, playing martyred Hogwarts pupil Cedric Diggory. Yet with success comes responsibility, and it's clear that post-Twilight, he's beginning to feel the pressure. "You can see all these articles," he says. "Like 'If Remember Me doesn't make any money, then what is he? What is his worth to the world?' I don't know. Nothing."
While the film made a modest box office bow in the US, taking $8.7 million in its opening weekend, Pattinson has no regrets about taking it on. "It's not a big epic action film. It's not going out to the marketplace to sweep up everything. It's just made to be a film. That's the weird thing."
While the film concentrates on Tyler's relationship with Lost star Emilie de Ravin's student Ally, Pattinson says: "I always thought it was more a film about living, trying to live, than specifically a love story" – a reason perhaps that Twilight fans have so far stayed away.
Not that this is a surprise. As shown by last year's little-seen biopic Little Ashes, in which he played artist Salvador Dalí, it's not Pattinson the fans want so much as his Twilight character Edward Cullen. Not that they'll have to wait long, with the third instalment of the franchise, Eclipse, due in July. While Pattinson returns to shoot the final episode, Breaking Dawn, in October, at least in between he's managed to squeeze in another adult role – an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's 19th-century novella Bel Ami – to further show there's more to him than teen pin-up.
Indeed, if the gay love scenes of Little Ashes didn't fluster his female fanbase, playing Bel Ami's hard-living journalist and social climber surely will. As a cad of the first order, the film pits him against a legion of female co-stars, including Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. So did that help his curious little phobia? "You mean did it ease my fear of vagina?" he says. "It's funny, playing this character that uses them all and uses sex as a weapon. He just destroys these people's lives in such horrible ways – it's so strange for me to be playing that part."
If this hints he's no heartbreaker in real life, today he's as reluctant as ever to talk about romance with Stewart, or anyone else. "When the spotlight seems to be quite centred on you, the best thing I think is to remain as much of a mystery as you can," he says. "Don't try and label yourself. Don't put yourself out. That's the only thing that creates stories."
If there's one thing he's learned, it's that a public persona isn't helpful when trying to sustain a career. "If you're seen all the time and if your opinions are all over the place, no-one wants to see your movies." Not that there's much danger of this – at least until the curtain falls on Twilight. v
Remember Me is released on 2 April. The third Twilight movie, Eclipse, follows on 9 July

Shrieking, ululating, OMG-ing teen girls aren't usually the best arbiters of men's style. (See: Cassidy, David; Mark, Marky; Boys, Backstreet.) So give the nearest tween a high five for freaking out over Robert Pattinson, the British sensation who stars in gossip columns, gossip sites, and oh yeah, a little billiondollar franchise called Twilight. Young Rob's probably got the best head of hair since James Dean, and he lets it do the talking. He also lets it fly: no pompadour, no side part…As far as we can tell, he just runs his hands through it every five minutes. And the clothes? What clothes? A pair of jeans, a T-shirt, an unbuttoned and untucked plaid shirt…That's it. He dresses his age (23); he dresses to his strengths; he dresses so you don't give a damn about how he's dressed.—WILL WELCH
Chris Cooper, right, in a scene from "Remember Me"
BY DENNIS KING
NEW YORK – Chris Cooper certainly didn’t build an impressive resume of 57 films and an Academy Award, plus television and Broadway work, by being a prima donna.
The hard-working, plain-spoken actor takes a down-to-earth approach to his craft, one that’s not surprising for a guy who studied both acting and agriculture at the University of Missouri and got his start in community theater pounding nails as a set builder. Stardom doesn’t interest him; acting does.
Through an amazing run of movies ranging from John Sayles’ gritty, low-budget “Matewan” to the inspirational “October Sky” to the controversial Oscar-winning “American Beauty” to the reality-bending “Adaptation” (for which he won an Academy Award as best supporting actor), Cooper has proven himself to be as durable as he is versatile.
His latest film is “Remember Me,” in which he plays a hard-nosed New York cop from Queens who clashes violently with his college-student daughter’s rebellious boyfriend (who happens to be played by that handsome young star of the moment, Robert Pattinson).
Cooper, who is openly critical of young actors who seem to relish red-hot celebrity more than the precise, demanding work of acting, had a lot to say about his co-star Pattinson during a recent press junket for the film.
Mainly, that Pattinson is no prima donna.
“Robert is learning the ropes,” said Cooper, whose squinty gaze and no-nonsense manner could certainly intimidate any young actor. “He’s relatively new in the business. What he’s doing is making some good choices, I think. I think he wants to be a serious actor, and he’s a lovely guy. So realizing what he has to deal with, all the demands of the `Twilight’ popularity and the distractions, I think he’s handling it amazingly well.”
With paparazzi and groupies descending on the shooting locations in New York every day, Cooper admitted to being occasionally aggravated by the distractions that came with Pattinson’s presence.
“But Robert was a consummate professional,” Cooper said. “He always did his homework and came to the set prepared.”
One of Cooper’s pet peeves is with young actors coming to the set looking like they’ve just rolled out of bed without having done their homework, without having all their lines memorized.
“I let them know I’m not pleased. I confront them with it,” he said bluntly, while declining to name names. “There’s this theory that I’m hearing time and time again with young actors that, `well, if I don’t learn my lines to the word it looks good on camera if I’m thinking about those words, trying to pull them.’
“Well, nine times out of ten that’ll kill a scene because the director’s saying, `what are you doing?’” Cooper said. “Get in the scene, get involved in the scene, get involved with the other actor you’re working with. And you just can’t do that if you don’t know your lines. It’s just happened to me too many times.
“I don’t care if they resent it (when he confronts them),” he said. “They’re working with me. Time is money in a production – we never have enough rehearsal time when we’re shooting a film – actors should come prepared. To his credit, Robert always did.”

Michael Loccisano/Getty ImagesActor Robert Pattinson attends the premiere of "Remember Me" at the Paris Theatre on March 1, 2010 in New York City."I don’t know why I didn’t see it coming,” Robert Pattinson says with a small smile. “I thought I’d be doing this tiny little film in New York, just hang out in New York.”
It didn’t quite work out that way.
Pattinson made the “tiny little film,” all right — a perfectly right-sized indie called “Remember Me” that opened Friday, with Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin as college lovers and Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper as the fathers who inevitably complicate things.
It was the filming itself that was over the top.
“It was nightmarish,” says director Allen Coulter, who handled the on-location shoot. “How he managed it, I don’t know. The paparazzi and the hordes of females?”
At one point in the movie, Pattinson’s character — a Holden Caulfield-ish rich kid named Tyler — has a chat with his tween sister in a city park. Coulter says hundreds of screaming fans showed up, hoping for a glimpse of the “Twilight” phenomenon.
“Just bedlam,” the filmmaker says. “But I thought he handled it very well. He thought about nothing but the film. He’s quite an actor.”
Co-star Brosnan — who wryly allows that “I’ve had my own fair share of admirers, long may it last” — says he was impressed by how Pattinson has been handling the “vortex of fame.”
“As a man of certain years and time in this business, and having sons, I want the best for this young man in every possible way,” he says. “And I think he’s acquitting himself grandly. I think he’s got a head on his shoulders.”
“Pierce was very mentoring on the set,” Coulter says. “He felt very paternal, certainly.”
The younger star’s appearances in public require a certain amount of forethought, subterfuge, quick thinking and stolid security. (During this interview, a very large and unsmiling man stood outside the door to his suite). The details of his private life — which he works hard to keep private — are the subject of rumor, analysis and outright fiction.
Case in point: his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart. Since that movie series began, fans — and celebrity muckrakers — have tried to link them. First, the young stars denied a romance. Then they simply said nothing. Finally, haltingly, the actor confirmed to a British paper, “We are together, yes.”
But the two young stars still play it carefully, avoiding being photographed together, entering parties separately. “If there’s a photo, they’ll write a story about it,” a wised-up Pattinson observes. “If there’s not a photo, no one seems to care.”
Pattinson — who is rather shy and stammering in real life — doesn’t want to say anything more about it now; at a round-table interview late in the day, just an allusion to “your girlfriend” makes him laugh a little uncomfortably and roll his eyes before carefully saying nothing.
You can’t blame him. Any quote he gives is analyzed like some utterance from the Oracle of Delphi — or the Federal Reserve. When Details magazine recently put him in a Helmut Newton-ish photo shoot full of naked women, he joked that he was “allergic to vaginas.” The net erupted in a flurry of snarky posts and head-shaking questions: Was Rob Pattinson really gay?
“People take everything so literally,” he says now, running a hand through his eternally tousled hair.
It is all a little silly. But it also explains why, over a long day of press conferences, round-table interviews and private chats, the actor — who describes himself as “sort of uncynical and innocent” about love — is reluctant to give away too much about his private life.
“When the spotlight seems to be quite centered on you, the best thing I think anyway is to stay as much of a mystery as you can,” he says. “Don’t try to label yourself, don’t put yourself out there, because that only creates stories. . . . I don’t think your public persona is in any way helpful to your career.”
So here, with and without his help, are a few answers to the mystery of Robert Pattinson.
He was born in London in 1986; his mother worked for a modeling agency and his father was an upscale car dealer. He had two older sisters, who liked to dress him up as a girl (here comes another round of gossip), and attended a school he didn’t care for. He loved music — particularly guitar and piano — and by 12 had begun to do some modeling.
Acting, though, still wasn’t quite on his radar.
“I’ve always really, really, really, really liked film,” he says (and proves it, later on, by casually referencing classic Jack Nicholson performances and obscure Godard works). “I always watched a ridiculous amount of movies, and was quite educated about them from a very young age, but I never put it together about wanting to become involved with it.”
Then he joined an amateur drama club “as kind of a lark.” That he was good at it — that he enjoyed it — surprised him. (“I don’t like showing off — I don’t even like performing that much.”) But he started getting some parts on British television. And then came the role as the tragic Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”
The Potter films were, of course, their own phenomenon. Yet Pattinson felt a little apart from it.
“The Potter films are shot at this random studio out in the middle of nowhere, so no one is waiting outside the gates for a glimpse, ever,” he says. “There’s nothing around. And I was still this complete enigma. I could kind of do what I wanted, and I could for ages. . . . I went to see Daniel (Radcliffe) do ‘Equus’ in London and no one even noticed me.”
Then Pattinson got the “Twilight” job. He knew the books were popular; he didn’t know what to expect from the movie. He got an apartment in Los Angeles and, after the shoot was finished, went back to looking for the next gig.
“Every single day, I’d go to a convenience store and get a bagel and a Snapple and read scripts,” he says. “And then, all of a sudden, I’m there on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Okay. And then the next day I went out to get breakfast and everyone was staring. And then a month later, there was the first Comic-Con and everything exploded. People were just screaming. Screaming.”
The almost orgasmic reactions shocked Pattinson because “the books are really so much about chastity. But people sexualize it in their heads. It’s so odd, and so funny. The fan fiction that people write and post — all of it ends up with Edward and Bella in bed. Or Edward and Jacob. Or everybody! It sort of ignores the whole point.”
But then, he admits with a laugh, “I think I’ve got a problem with reading scripts. I always seem to take the opposite meaning. Almost every job I’ve ever done — I don’t know why this is — but I talk to people after I’ve read the script and they say, ‘You’re seeing this the wrong way entirely.’ I disagree with almost everyone about absolutely everything.”
But the people who know Pattinson — from studio employees to co-stars — agree on one thing: He’s a sweet, unaffected young man. The moody Edward of the “Twilight” saga, the impulsive, raging Tyler of “Remember Me” — they’re only proof of what a good actor he is.
Real acting chops
Brosnan talks admiringly about his “grace under pressure.” Coulter notes that although Pattinson had signed for his small drama before the fame of “Twilight” really “went haywire,” afterward he remained committed. He didn’t try to renegotiate the deal. He didn’t beg to back out so he could take on a bigger-budgeted, better-paying job.
“On the contrary, he really wanted to do it because he knew it was an opportunity to prove he wasn’t just this flash-in-the-pan guy from ‘Twilight,’” the director says. “And he does prove it ... He’s not extremely experienced, and he’d be the first to say that. But he’s very smart and very dedicated and very, very hard on himself. Not on others — he’s generous and complimentary about everyone else. But he’s not generous with himself. And that’s actually a pretty endearing trait.”
Pattinson says he just appreciates the chance to prove he can be more than a glittering vampire.
“I was reading tons and tons of scripts and thinking about what to do after ‘Twilight,’ and there were so few that didn’t follow the same pattern,” he says. “Young guys, completely innocent virgins who learn the way of the world — every single story followed the same pattern, and (‘Remember Me’) didn’t really at all. It didn’t feel like it started at the beginning and ended at the end. It felt like it sort of started with chapter nine and ended seven chapters before you expected it to.”
Pattinson knows that people will attach outsized expectations to the movie just because of his participation. (“If it doesn’t make any money, what is he? What is his worth to the world?”) But he’s trying to ignore them. He’s already working on his next project, a new version of de Maupassant’s “Bel Ami,” playing a heartless seducer. And there is the third “Twilight” picture, “Eclipse,” scheduled for June — and, eventually, the series’ finale, “Breaking Dawn.”
After that? He shrugs and laughs.
“I don’t really know,” he says. “I hardly like any (scripts) I see. I’m sure it will end up looking quite random when you see what my next jobs are.”
Besides, right now, his main job is just trying to have a normal life.
He is not complaining, not really. And even if he’s sick of the paparazzi, he is certainly not whining about his fans, the “Twihards” who stand screaming outside premieres or shakily hand him photos to sign.
“People coming up to you in the street is nice,” he insists. “It’s just when people know they can make money off your life, that’s when it becomes difficult — because they’re relentless.”
So he has strategies.
“It’s a bit of a hassle, but if you make sure you don’t go where the crowds will be, if no one finds out where you’re staying or having dinner, then it’s fine,” he says. “People say I should just accept it, don’t let it rule my life, but having photographers surrounding me when I’m trying to have dinner? That’s not life for me at all. If you can avoid that — which is possible, most of the time — then it’s not crazy every single day.
“And then when it isn’t,” he adds with a grin, “then you can actually enjoy the kind of hysterical parts.”

Robert Pattinson With deep, intense eyes, sexy voice and good looks is the yummiest flavor of the season. Whatever Pattinson does or says these days becomes breaking news.
From his hair to his girlfriend, the media wants to know everything.
The latest buzz doing the rounds is that Pattinson has set his eyes on doing the much-coveted role of James Bond ‘someday’.
At the UK Premiere of his upcoming film’ Remember Me’, Pattinson told Sky News that he is eager forward to play the most loved spy in future. He also shared the fact that he is a crazy fan of Bond movies.
Remember Me tells the story of a couple who falls in love after being devastated by tragedy in their respective lives.
However, he is worried that he might not be able to match in certain areas of Bond’s fast action job. He remarked jokingly that he is not a good runner and thus performing the action stunts might be a little difficult for him to perform.
One person who would be delighted hearing this piece of news would be Pattinson’s girlfriend Kristen Stewart.We, the lesser mortals do not have the chance to see our lover in different avtars.But this sexy babe is lucky.
From vampire to Bond, she can watch her boyfriend donning different roles each time he appears on the screen. Lucky babe, we must say!
COPIED AND PASTED
Girls strip off for him, fans mob his set, but the sweet little star of Twilight, and the world's most wanted man, still struggles with his sex scenes
While Pattinson was filming Remember Me, 3,500 fans turned up and 'went completely mental'
Would I like to interview Robert Pattinson, the world’s hottest young actor? Yes, obviously — although getting close to the boy who plays the “devastatingly, inhumanly beautiful” vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight at first seems virtually impossible. Penned away in the Dorchester, like a rare Siberian tiger cub — he can’t stay at home in Barnes when he comes back from LA because the fans know where he lives — he is being firmly guarded by a brace of film execs when I arrive for the interview.
A spiky PR woman for his new film, Remember Me — a romantic drama memorable mainly for the fact that it has Pattinson in it and is not a Twilight film — loudly repeats instructions that there are to be “no personal questions”. A Spanish reporter returns from the interview room claiming that when she asked him if he liked cooking, she nearly got thrown out. Another, a Brazilian, reveals that, in fact, he did get thrown out of an interview with Pattinson’s Twilight co-star and rumoured girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, back in Sao Paulo, for asking about boyfriends. “Her bodyguard asked me to leave,” he shrieks. “I said nao! And then he tosched me on the shoulder, and I said, ‘Okay, I go.’”
“Like, who the ferque is this diva?” says someone else, and by the time I am ushered next door to meet him, I’m thinking the same. But as soon as I clap eyes on him, and take in that kittenish smile, the tousled, leonine eyebrows and — of course — the lush whip of unwashed hair, all that instantly vanishes. Pattinson is calm, polite and pleasant: heaven on a stick.
Swigging nonchalantly from a large bottle of Hildon like Stoli at a Facebook house party, he is also utterly oblivious to the commotion outside. And as for being a diva, well, let’s just say his agent, a jaded LA type who sits in the room with him, is far from impressed with his attempts so far, rolling his eyes when Pattinson asks: “Nick, am I a diva?” The actor furrows his brow. “I mean, I had a very diva-ish conversation with some people about some stuff in this film about a day ago...” Nick sighs and drawls: “He just said what he thought in a script meeting. Please don’t use that as an example.”
Robert Pattinson: trapped in the Twilight zone
Twilight star finds fame hard to digest
“But I was very... bold,” protests Pattinson. Of course, that is exactly what he isn’t, because ever since his first knicker-melting appearance in Twilight, Pattinson, 23, has become a byword for shy hotness. Formerly a public-school hoodie from southwest London with a bit part in Harry Potter, he now commands £8m a movie and is such a huge lust object that he is unable to go anywhere unattended. During the filming of Remember Me, “3,500 people turned up and went completely mental”, he says. He is constantly asked for kisses and autographs, and recently, when he joked that the best way to get his attention was to take your clothes off, to his horror one girl in the audience promptly did so. Does he find the attention irritating? He shrugs. “I guess it’s part of your reality,” he says, before admitting he’s a “little bit harder to deal with” now. “I get stressed out much quicker.”
Then again, being beautiful “is quite hard”, even though he insists that 50% of people don’t get his appeal: “They’re like, what’s that all about?” Certainly, today, he is trying his best not to be beautiful, in a greasy cap and sweats. Only his eyebrows seem manicured, although he insists they aren’t. He had them plucked on the first Twilight film, but “you get to the point where you think, ‘Okay, I look like a transvestite now’”. Not that the girls — Twilight’s obsessed fans are called Twiharders, and a documentary, Robsessed, has been made about them — were put off.
Over the past 18 months, the actor has been linked to countless models and actresses, and recently appeared to confirm the rumours that he was dating Stewart, but then mysteriously claimed that he was “allergic to vagina”. Er, what was that about? Is he dating Stewart then? Or is he, in fact, gay? I heard his two older sisters used to dress him up and call him Claudia when he was a boy.
Actually, he’s “straight”, he says. He found the male-on-male sex scenes he had to perform in a film, Little Ashes, last year “strange. I played Salvador Dali. We were both straight, but he was Spanish, so much more confident about being naked and stuff, although when it comes down to it, it’s just as awkward with a girl, especially if you are straight and with a girl you don’t like... Anyway, Javier was really cool. After we had been pretending to have sex on this balcony in Barcelona, he was like, ‘We have such a strange job...’”
Poor Pattinson! Eyeing the bed in his suite, I dare a question about those sex scenes with girls. He famously had to pop a Valium to get through the audition for Twilight, in which he needed to make out on a bed with Stewart. For the love scenes in Remember Me, his co-star Emilie de Ravin “was very, very, very comfortable”, he sighs. “I’m always the one who’s the most uncomfortable. So we came into the room, and they said ‘It’s a closed set,’ blah, blah, and we got on to the bed and the director was like, ‘I got you these things, if just maybe you wanted to use them. You don’t have to use them, maybe it will make you more comfortable.’ They were these bondage things: lube and handcuffs and porn videos. It was so funny!
"And when you end up doing it, you have this little patch on your privates. I didn’t really tape it up properly, so I’d spent so long taping it round myself and then literally it falls off within one second and it’s taped to the sheet. And you realise the whole crew are looking directly at your butt crack.” He blanches. “I can’t think of anything exciting for them about this. It gives you a lot of respect for porn stars.”
I decide to dive in and ask him about Stewart. Does he believe in love at first sight? “Yes,” he says. Has he... ever been in love? “Ah, yes, I think so.” “What’s...” Nick looks up from his BlackBerry. “Let’s keep to the film,” he snaps. Pattinson looks embarrassed, but the moment has passed, and I am to leave. He gets up and gives me a kiss on the cheek: light and soft and not at all unfresh. I read somewhere one girl’s parents paid £20,000 in a charity auction for one of those.
Remember Me is released on April 2
