Rob talks WFE and ‘Breaking Dawn’ with BBC

Rob recently spoke to BBC about Water For Elephants and Breaking Dawn:

Robert Pattinson says he prefers making romantic comedies over
CGI films because “they’re incredibly boring to make”
Speaking ahead of the release of his new movie Water For Elephants, the British actor told Newsbeat that he’d much rather do romcoms.
“If you want to do big movies you have to do either big action explosion movies or you do romances because they’re the only things that get made,” he said.
“I think romances allow you to develop a character more. I hate working with computerized stuff. It’s incredibly boring.”
‘Boring to do’

Pattinson, who rose to fame after playing the role of vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, also had a dig at action films saying although he likes watching them, they’re boring to make.
He said: “If they’re just well written [I'd consider an action movie] but it’s not good writing most of the time.
“I enjoy watching them but it would be boring to do. You’ve basically got to do it if you want to be famous.”
In Water For Elephants, the 24-year-old British actor plays a vet who runs away with a circus and falls in love with one of the performers, played by Reese Witherspoon.
He admitted that he decided to do the film after meeting the elephant used in the production.
“I met the elephant before I accepted the movie and before I’d read the script,” he said “It really was [the deal breaker].
Breaking Dawn
“I remember going home in the car waiting to read the script and I was like, ‘Please, please be good.’

“I’d basically already decided to do the movie not knowing anything about it just because I got on really well with the elephant and thought it was really fun.”
The actor also revealed that filming for the final Twilight films, Breaking Dawn parts one and two, has now finished.
“I’m sure we will have to do something,” he said. “We finished a week and a half ago. All done.”

“Yeah, she (Kristen Stewart) loved that [wedding] scene. It’s a very girly scene.”

“I do quite a few scenes with a baby and that’s quite odd. It’s so different in those movies because we were doing it with a real baby. But it was fun.”

Details & Quotes from upcoming Graham Norton Interview with Rob & Reese


This week on the show, Graham Norton is joined by Twilight superstar Robert Pattinson, Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, House star Hugh Laurie and comedian Shappi Khorsandi.

Hot from the premiere of the new movie, Water For Elephants, Reese and Robert talk about the insanity of people camping out for 32 hours to see them.

Graham reminds Robert that in a previous interview, whilst talking about working with Ty the elephant star of the film he had said: "She is the best actor I have ever worked with."

Acknowledging Reese's (mock) indignation, Robert says: "I am continually saying the wrong thing and it's come back to haunt me, especially as I am now sitting next to the other best actor I have ever worked with."

Admitting they had both fallen in love with their four-legged co-star, Reese says: "She is amazing, thoughtful and communicative." And Robert says: "I genuinely thought we had a real bond, a little something going on."

Talking about performing her own stunts for the movie, Reese says: "The first couple of times I did it I was terrified, some of the things we were doing were insanely dangerous. We didn't have safety equipment, but it was amazing and incredible."

Denying she tried out the stunts out on her own pet donkeys, she says: "No, they are for putting in the car and taking pictures of."

She also confirms the rumour that the elephant farted in her face: "I was standing underneath her and I couldn't see anything and then I thought I heard a gun shot and I hit the floor, I came out from under her and I was like, 'oh my god what the hell was that?'"

On working in the US, Robert says: "When I first went to LA it was very easy to convince people I was a member of the royal family. I told people I went to RADA with Prince William. People would think, 'You're English, I completely believe you.'"

Talking about her fans, Reese says: "One girl said, 'I only have one question for you. Can I smell you?' I just thought it was completely bizarre. My fans are invested in my personal life, they give me love advice, which sometimes works out and sometimes doesn't! I met a guy called George yesterday, he said he likes my new husband… he's never met him."

Robert adds: "I think I have a much more simplistic reaction with fans – they like screaming. There is an overwhelming amount of energy, they've only got one thing to say and its screaming – it's really powerful."

He also reveals he had an over enthusiastic fan and says: "I was doing a movie in Spain and at the time only had one fan. She was hanging around outside my apartment for ages so I invited her out for dinner. She took me to her parents' restaurant, which was miles away and I had to pay for a taxi, we had disgusting food and I had to pay for the meal. She never came back again… it was the strangest thing."

Robert, playing down his heartthrob status, says: "My sisters were abusive – they used to give me a pony tail! They don't see me as a heartthrob and say if I hadn't discovered hair gel I was just the tall guy that got to buy alcohol for them."

Hugh Laurie pops in to chat about his new blues album and on his new career as a musician, says: "It's a dream like experience. I'm looking forward to reading about it in five years time when it will feel real. It's what I've always wanted to do absurd as it may seem. I've had this amazing opportunity to reinvent myself and I took it with both hands." On his gigs he says: "They were the three most frightening experiences of my life."

Confirming the album release was delayed because of the Royal Wedding he says: "We did push it back a little bit to make way for the nuptials." And, with tongue firmly in cheek, adds: "We didn't want to steal the limelight."

On the huge international success of House, Hugh says: "It is rather large, rather substantial, I can't account for it. It is such a densely wordy show that I can't imagine how it gets translated well enough. House is so idiomatic, so extremely witty and well written it's extraordinary to me that people are prepared to get into it."

Shappi makes a plea for her lost cat to come home and talks about her tour and benefit gig at the O2.

Hugh performs You Don't Know My Mind from his new album live in the studio.

And, finally, Graham pulls the lever on foolhardy members of the audience brave enough to sit in the red chair.

The Graham Norton Show, BBC One, Friday 6 May at 10.40pm (UK) & 11.10pm (Rep.Of Ireland) 


Rob interview with OKTV at Water for Elephants premiere


Rob's interview with Dublin's 98FM!

Water for Elephants is the brand new Francis Lawrence directed movie. Starring academy award winner Reese Witherspoon, academy award winner Christoph Waltz and the very dashing and charming Twilight star Robert Pattinson. It’s about a veterinary student, RPatz who abandons his studies after his parents are killed and he joins a travelling circus as their vet. I think it’s a must see movie set in America during the Great depression in the 30’s, in cinemas from tomorrow. Ultimately Water for Elephants is about how love conquers all. We give it five stars.

Robert Pattinson plays Jacob and once he joins the circus, he falls fast for the ring masters wife Marlene (Reece Witherspoon). Their love blossoms slowly but who will Marlene Choose her tyrannical husband August who made her the Benzini Circus star attraction or Jacob, the man who can truly make her happy

98FM caught up exclusively with Robert Pattinson in London and as a fan of the original novel, water for elephants; Rpatz appreciated how the love story blossomed slowly…
