The Twilight Saga: Eclipse stars KRISTEN STEWART, ROB PATTINSON, and TAYLOR LAUTNER talk about the pressures of promoting a blockbuster film:
Kristen: ”Things have looked up for me as soon as I stopped worrying about it and relinquished the control — not even relinquished the control, just realized that I never had it. As soon as I stopped getting nervous and freaked out by stuff, I had a much better time.”
ROB: ”When you first start doing it, it is so overwhelming that you think it’s the most important thing in the world, the whole thing about public image and persona and stuff. And then you realize the whole thing about marketing is just having your face everywhere and that’s it. It doesn’t matter what you say.
TAYLOR: ”I think just by repetition and experience it’s made it more comfortable. It got a lot better when I learned that the easiest way to go about it is just be honest and be yourself.”
Looking to be ready for a weekend break, Robert Pattinson was spotted mulling around on the “Water for Elephants” set in Los Angeles, California on Friday (July 2).
The hunky 24-year-old actor had his hoodie pulled over his head, quickly making his way to his trailer after running through the morning’s scenes.
“It’s about a character called Georges Duroy, who is a broke ex-soldier in Paris in 1890. Basically, he has no drive. He’s just jealous of everything. I quite liked the story,” Pattinson says, describing his role as “a completely amoral, evil character.”
Despite the European period setting, he also believes the themes are universal.
“Kids nowadays, everyone feels entitled. You see someone who wants to do a job, but they don’t want to do an entry level job. ‘I want $100,000 a year as soon as I’m out of the gate.’
“That’s exactly what this guy is like. But he’s completely talentless. The only thing he does is, by accident, he finds this guy he’s in the army with in a brothel, and this other guy wants to impress him, so he gives (Georges) some money and invites him around.
“It ends up being like he invited the devil into his house. (Georges) seduces his wife and seduces all his wife’s friends. Every single influential woman he can get, he has an affair with. And he ends up screwing over the entire society and making millions and millions of francs. It’s a story about how the s—s can completely win sometimes, just by doing absolutely nothing and stabbing everybody in the back.”
