LOOK BELOW FOR MY STORY OF MY BIRTHDAY, AND A REQUEST :)
Remove my tag and I will kick your ass.
I booked my London trip in late January. From May 2nd, to May 8th, with my family. Then in March/April I found out that Robert Pattinson would be attending the Water for Elephants premiere there on May 3rd, MY BIRTHDAY! I cannot tell you how happy I was then. I tried not to be too excited, since I knew we couldn’t stand in line at Westfield all day long. I did take with me a picture and a WFE book, though. And then we arrived in London late on the 2nd. On the 3rd we went to Westfield at 10, to do some shopping before the premiere. At 3:30pm we went to see how it looked; because a friend of mine told we should come to were she was. And I am very glad we did. We had to stand there for 3 hours before the premiere started, and Rob arrived. And holy crap, is he beautiful in person. We (my sister and I) had a very good spot, only one person in front of us. And we stood opposite the press people. And then suddenly Rob was there. In front of me! And he signed both my picture and my book :D I didn’t get to look at him much, which I regret, because we left right after he had signed for me. People were pushing so much; I couldn’t stand there anymore. I did not get a picture with Rob, but I don’t really mind that :) It was the best birthday present I could ever get.
I did, however, get a few pictures of him :) They aren’t that good, because it wasn’t possible for me to stand still. My sister also got a couple of videos, which I love :) I am today sharing these with you, but with my tag on, because, well, they are mine :) And I would like it very much if you do not post these without letting me know first. Thank you :)
(FYI, I am not in any of these pictures/videos and I am not saying anything in them either.)
There’s no denying that Robert Pattinson is hot, but does he have what it takes to be the next Brad Pitt? “Water for Elephants” costume designer, Jacqueline West, who worked with Brad on “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” seems to think so.
“I think Brad would think so too,” Jacqueline told us.
Jacqueline, who designed all of Rob’s 1930s looks in “WFE” (including his new favorite pair of underpants!) said that similar to Brad, designing for Rob was a treat.
“He’s kind of perfect,” she said. “He’s easy, like Brad in that way. You can’t put anything on them that they don’t look good in.” Ahh the advantages of being ridiculously good looking.
That’s not where the similarities end though. Jacqueline added that the two guys have a lot more in common than their looks.
“Both of them are so nice to work with. They’re both really lovely people and nice to everyone, respectful of everyone’s work and collaborative and genuine,” she said (as if we needed more reasons to love them). “There’s something very down to earth about both of them. Brad, because he’s from the Midwest, I think, and Rob, because he came from theater.”
Jacqueline, who has met both Brad and Rob’s families (seriously, how can we get that job?), said that their upbringing is definitely to credit for their all-around awesomeness.
“I met both their families and they’re both lovely and well brought up,” she said.
And there’s more. Jacqueline also noticed a common thread in the way both actors work.
“They’re similar in the way they approach characters and a part and how they’re so respectful about their craft.”
Okay, we’re pretty much sold. RPattz could very well be the next BP, now all that’s left is for the two of them is to star in a movie together, possibly opposite their other halves (a.k.a. Kristen Stewart and Angelina Jolie) both brunettes who they met on set (see what we did there?).
There was an embankment with a train track on the top. All the trailers were on one side, and then the circus world was on the other. Once you walked over the tracks, there would be a camera, but that was the only thing from the 21st Century. You could stand on the tracks and look over at everything, and you were in the ‘30s. We were out in the middle of the desert in Fillmore, and there was nothing else around. There was an orchard. We were in the ‘30s. Jack Fisk, the production designer, used authentic pegs and the ropes. Every single thing which built the world was all totally real. And, authentic period underpants do actually help, as well. I actually wore them every single day. Jacqueline West, the costume designer, was unbelievable. Almost everything was real. Every pair of jeans were all from the ‘20s and ‘30s. It was crazy.
Hollywood Outbreak‘s Article
With his new film Water For Elephants, Robert Pattinson stars as Jacob circus veterinarian who falls in love with Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), the wife of an ill-tempered ringmaster (Christoph Waltz). Based on Sara Gruen’s bestselling Depression-era set novel, the picture was directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) and shot by renowned cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto (Amores Perros, Brokeback Mountain).
“I think it definitely has a lot of romantic elements to it,” said Pattinson, when asked what his fans should love about Water For Elephants. “I think it’s a pretty beautiful movie, I think it’s different to a lot of other stuff that’s come out. I haven’t seen anything like it in a few years. When I was making it I felt like I was being transported somewhere else and hopefully that will be captured in the movie.”
From a dapper black tux to grungy combat boots, Robert Pattinson dons plenty of handsome looks in the upcoming flick, “Water for Elephants.” So, really, who would have guessed that his pièce de résistance on set was none other than 1930s-style underwear!
Yes, that’s right. Period underwear. Rob had to wear them to get in character for “WFE,” and apparently he was a big fan, according to costume designer Jacqueline West.
“He loved that I had period underwear for him,” she told Hollywood Crush recently (no doubt sparking the envy of girls EVERYWHERE). “Yes, and he loved putting that on every morning before he put his costume on, you know, he said that in his trailer, and he said it made him, it transported him to the ’30s. He said he got out of bed feeling like a different person.”
The underpants, along with his other period costumes, helped Rob step into the role of Jacob Jankowski, a vet student who joins the circus during the Great Depression after losing his parents, Jacqueline shared.
“I can see Rob, who is very languid, he’s very modern in his movements and he’s very cool. I could see him sort of kind of become Jacob and become a ’30s young man, who was, you know, gonna work hard to carve an existence in this circus,” she said.
Sorry, we’re still stuck on her description of languid, modern and cool Rob.
Sigh. Okay, now moving on.
Jacqueline also added that Rob, who was “manlier” than she expected (more on that next week!), carried the clothes very well.
“He would wear clothes so beautifully and you would see kind of a transformation, you know. If he put on those World War I combat boots, his work boots, you can see him stand differently. And I could tell, Rob would say, ‘Oh, this really feels right. This feels great.’”
As for whether or not Rob’s undies make a cameo in the film, Jacqueline hasn’t seen the final cut to know, so you’re just gonna have to wait until the movie comes out on April 22 to find out!
