Elle have released a video interview with Robert Pattinson, where he talks about why he wanted to do the Dior commercial and how it came about!
Have a look at it below! (after the 30 second YouTube ad)
Ashley Greene has joined the cast of the Lorne Michaels- and John Goldwyn- produced comedy Staten Island Summer. Helmed by longtime Saturday Night Live
director-producer Rhys Thomas and written by the late-night show’s head scribe Colin Jost, the pic follows the summer after high school graduation that friends Danny and Frank spend as poolside lifeguards. With the former off to Harvard and the latter unsure of what he wants to do next, the movie lays out the different directions the pals’ lives are about to take.
Greene’s character in the Paramount movie is member of the pool club and the daughter of an overly protected mobster. It is also fair to say the actress plays the object of at least one of the boys’ desires.
Set to start production later this month in New York, Staten Island Summer makes four the number of films Greene now has coming out. She stars in CBGB, about the famed NYC punk rock club, The Weinstein Company’s Random and Zach Braff’s Kickstarter funded film Wish I Was Here. Greene is repped by CAA and McKeon Myones Management.

“I don’t want to be like ‘OK, in order to get rid of the ‘Twilight’ thing I have to do this now…’ he said. “It wasn’t a planned out thing. When I finished the franchise I wasn’t like ‘Oh, I gotta do a comedy now.’ I knew I wanted to do something different, but then it all made sense.
The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Sanford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Cristina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star.
Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, Benjie’s tormented, apparently psychotic sister.

Australia was founded as a repository for crooks and criminals — a wretched hive of scum and villainy, like the British Empire’s own Mos Eisley. Of course, that was a long time ago and the Australian national demeanor has since shifted from “kill or be killed” to “live and let live,” but David Michôd’s gritty 2010 drama Animal Kingdom chronicled some of the country’s more modern criminal descendents. In his upcoming sophomore effort, The Rover, the director takes things even further.
Robert Pattinson plays a denizen of the Outback in the near future, after a worldwide financial collapse has sent many like him running to the still viable mines of the Australian desert. “It’s like a new gold rush,” says Michôd. “Where people from all corners of the world have come out to the desert to scrape out an existence. Petty criminals and miscreants and hustlers.” Guy Pearce, who had an uncharacteristically reserved role in Animal Kingdom, gets to sink his teeth into a nicely nasty part opposite Pattinson. “The basic story is really quite elemental,” says Michôd. “You’ve got a really dark, dangerous, murderous person in Guy’s character, and in Rob’s character you have a quite troubled and damaged, but beautiful and naïve, soul.”
Of course, just by its setting and basic plot, The Rover is poised to draw comparisons to one of the antipodean country’s most memorable cinematic contributions. “You put cars in the desert in Australia and people are going to think of Mad Max,” says Michôd. “And with all due respect to that film — and I stress that — I think The Rover is going to be way more chillingly authentic and menacing.”

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had a lot to contend with in “Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” including a new baby that was half human and half vampire. A new featurette from the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release shows how daunting it was to cast the part and how MacKenzie Foy got it.Foy, who turned 12 in November, had a difficult task ahead of her, according to the 10-minute video.
video / viaAlthough she was only supposed to be three-years-old, Renesmee was already a super genius. She could speak 20 languages and had read the works of philosophers like John Milton, according to the book.Director Bill Condon explained that it would be impossible to find a real three-year-old who could handle the part, so they decided to take artistic license and cast Renesmee as a super-fast-growing child.“When we were first casting Renesmee we were going a little older, but even then, how are you going to find someone who sounds like a little adult and convey the emotions we need,” explains author Stephenie Meyer.Surprisingly, a lot of fans had suggested Foy for the part, according to casting director Debra Zane.The video contains some of Foy’s heretofore unseen audition tapes and her own commentary about her thoughts on the part as well. “It was one of those things that as soon as we saw her that was it,” says Condon.The video also provides a behind-the-scenes look at how a doll was used to play Renesmee as an infant and how they used computer generated graphics to help bring it to life.Stewart infamously called them “little Chucky dolls,” during an interview on Jay Leno.Taylor Lautner, Rob and Kristen also discuss what it was like to work with the actress. Check out the video below.
