"How circus changes life”- Interview to Robert Pattinson by Lorenzo Soria for La Stampa.it
It is said that the train passes once, a metaphor to suggest that we must take the fly when there are opportunities offered by life and these could not recur again.
Jacob Jankowski gets on a train from a traveling circus and so hebegins an adventure that will change his life. There he will know Marlena, the star of the circus, radiant in her beauty when she performs with the white horses, and Rosie, an impressive as sweet and friendly elephant.
In a nutshell, this is the plot of Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen’s bestseller, now a movie directed by Francis Lawrence. For the millions of fans of the Twilight series, this is also the film starring Robert Pattinson, who finished filming the last two films in the series, and he intends to leave the golden cage of vampire dangerous as it is fascinating to find its new identity as an actor .In Water for Elephants he is just Jacob, the quasi-vet who embarks himself on an adventure that will mark his life. Marlena is Reese Witherspoon, while Christopher Waltz is August, the owner of the circus, a bit ‘as its Colonel Landa’s Inglourious Basterds, able to be softly seductive but also capable of an infinite cruelty. Rob Pattinson now has a pair of army pants, shoes untied, shirt with short sleeves , as always, seems just thrown out of bed.
Pattinson, how was to be on a set with elephants, lions and giraffes?
“It’s a bit ‘like I’ve met a lot of new interesting people, beginning with Tai, our elephant, which is a unique case of intelligence and sensitivity. Treat animals as people stretch, with respect.
“ What does it mean to you circus? You went there as a child?
“I went there once when I was seven. My sister told me and scared me a clown had died and only when I was 19 years she told me that it was not true. I did not come back to circus anymore, but I find the idea of the circus very charming, it is an environment that transports you to another world. “
At the end of the year will hit the theaters “Twilight” movie number four.” Someone says that under the direction of Bill Condon his vampire will become more dangerous.
“There will be more anger. But so goes the book and Condon was not afraid to take that path.
What do you do to recharge?
“I work hard since four years now and I start to think that my batteries are being a bit ‘low. I am very happy with my life, but I would have more control over my work. I would like more time to write and more time at all, do not have this feeling of being on the run. “
Are you thinking of writing a screenplay?
“Considering the scripts I read and movies I’ve ever seen, I often wonder about what is the criterion that make some scripts to be produced into movies. Sometimes I write down ideas when I have free time, I hope to write something.
In the meantime, you can not move freely without the onslaught of fans.
“It happens more in America than when I go back to London, where fans are more respectful. Generally are Americans and Italians fans that asked me to stop when I walk. I can not walk through Times Square, but my life has not changed much, if not for the fact that I work a lot. And yes, I try to preserve my privacy, but I’m not so shy and reserved as many think about me “
I graciously asked his permission if it would be cool for him to do a blog post regarding the statements that he said.
And he said: sure! no problem!
It all started when I tweeted him this: @bdkreviews love your interview! :)) great job! and lucky you! :))
He tweeted back a simple Thank You to me..
I tried my luck again..hahaha.
By tweeting this: @bdkreviews you're certainly most welcome! :)) can I ask, what's it like to interview them? :))
And I'm not really expecting for a tweet back. And at this point, I'm not sure if he's going to tweet back to me because most people doesn't tweet back to you once they've replied to you on the first tweet. So with that, I just carried on with what I'm doing then suddenly
a tweet appeared!
bdkreviews: @AmandaNicolette I was his first of the day and i walked in and he was chewing gum and said, I should probably spit this out...haha
bdkreviews: @AmandaNicolette he's just a normal dude who happens to be very talented and an amazing actor!
Then it seems like, that we're just tweeting..normally. HAHA
Me: @bdkreviews what about reese witherspoon? what's it like to interview her? :))
bdkreviews: @AmandaNicolette i'm in love with her! she's always very talkative and very funny - she always makes you feel comfortable in the interview
Me: @bdkreviews the fans would also love to ask..what's Christoph like on an interview? :))
bdkreviews: @AmandaNicolette he's very very very serious and very very very funny at the same time - I just love how open he can be - very nice guy
Wow. What an experience, conducting an interview via Twitter. :)) Haha.
Before Robert Pattinson was romancing Reese Witherspoon in 'Water for Elephants' or the mysterious Edward Cullen in 'Twilight,' he played a pivotal role in two 'Harry Potter' movies.
Robert played Quiddich captain and Triwizard Tournament contender Cedric Diggory in 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire' and 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,' the latter in which he comes to an untimely end at the hands of Voldemort. When asked by ET in 2005 about his thoughts of becoming a teen idol, he laughed, "I think about it all the time! No, I don't -- it's impossible to think what it's going to be like, because I've never been hugely popular or anything in my life, so it's going to be weird. I hope I get a bit of an ego afterwards!"
