Holliday Granger talks about 'Bel Ami' and working with Rob - SPOILERS

Spoilerish interview

Can you talk about the roles you did in Jane Eyre and Bel Ami, which you also have coming out this year?
GRAINGER: When I was younger, I always wanted to do period drama and never got to do it, until last January. And then, this last year was just period drama after period drama. I have a small part in Jane Eyre. I’m one of the Rivers sisters that saves Jane (Mia Wasikowska) from destitution. They’re a very lovely, very godly, very pure family. Bel Ami is the opposite. My character is more like Lucrezia. She’s an evil little witch that knows what she wants and is out to get the guy that she wants. She’s willing to upset her mom and upset anyone, just to get the guy that she wants.

Did you get to work with Robert Pattinson?
GRAINGER: Yeah, my character’s scenes are mainly with Rob ‘cause she marries him in the end. She does get him.

SG: So your musical beginnings were friends and family-based, and then so were your first big steps out into wider acclaim—outside London, out into the world, with your schoolmate Robert (Pattinson)…

SB: It’s still all friend-based. I don’t work with anyone that isn’t a friend. My band, my booking agent, my manager… Everyone I want to work with, I want to have a relationship that is stronger than just work. As far as the connection with Rob, he’s a friend—that’s it. There’s no special story. The special story is in our friendship. That’s it. There’s nothing grand about it. I got a song on this Twilight soundtrack—that opened up a bigger audience than I was ready for, perhaps, and then it was up to me to keep the music-lovers, and expand and grow on and through and past and with that.

SG: I can’t let you go and not go back to Rob for one final question, but I don’t want to get you into any trouble…
SB: You can’t get me into trouble. I can get me into trouble.

SG: Good point. But I’ll try not to lead you into any trouble.
SB: That’s fine, because I can deflect. I’ve been doing it for years.

SG: I bet you have. You’ve been mates for a long, long time. As surreal as life must be for him, which is up way up there, you have seen that from one step removed, and you have a sense of what that means as you’re an artist on the road connecting with people as well although maybe not quite to the “Beatles running down the street in ‘Help’” thing that he’s been going through. What does that leave you thinking? From what you’ve seen from him, what impact does that have on you? Does that end up being a blessing—you get to see how that can be from a pseudo-safe distance?
SB: If I thought about it and if I dissected it in any way, that wouldn’t be a healthy thing. It just is. There’s no difference in anything I do. There’s no difference in anything he does. There’s no difference in anything any friend I have, whether it be my wife… It just doesn’t make a difference. I’m gonna keep doing what I’m gonna do. Robert Pattinson is going to keep doing what he’s gonna do. Tom Sturridge is gonna keep doing what he’s gonna do. Bobby Long is gonna keep doing what he’s gonna do. Marcus Foster is gonna keep doing what’s he’s gonna do. Angus McNeice is gonna keep doing what he’s gonna do. Anyone I know are gonna do what they’re gonna do, and that’s not changed anything.

'Water for Elephants' and 'Breaking Dawn' in Box Office Mojo and Fandango's 2011 Movie Preview

Box Office Mojo's 2011 Preview: Ten Miscellaneous Contenders

Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants (April 22): It's easy to dismiss Robert Pattinson as just part of the Twilight craze thanks to the poor box office performance of Remember Me last March. However, his next movie Water for Elephants is poised to be much more successful: it's helmed by blockbuster director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), has interesting co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz and is based on a reportedly popular book.

Box Office Mojo's 2011 Preview: Sequels - Now, More Than Ever

The Twi­light Saga: Break­ing Dawn - Part 1

Like On Stranger Tides, Breaking Dawn (Part One) (Nov. 18) follows a trilogy, but one that ended on a high note: with $300.5 million, third entry Eclipse pulled off the rare feat of out-grossing the second entry New Moon. Breaking Dawn returns to the pre-Thanksgiving slot of the first Twilight and New Moon (and formerly Harry Potter), but will have the longest wait yet (17 months). Add in a reportedly mixed fan reaction to the novel and how being broken in two didn't help Deathly Hallows Part 1, and it wouldn't be surprising if interest ebbs for Breaking Dawn.

Fandango's 2011 Movie Preview

Water For Elephants

He and the star per­former (Reese With­er­spoon) fall in love, much to the dis­may of her hus­band (Christoph Waltz), the cruel head ani­mal trainer. Sara Gruen’s adapted novel exam­ines the hard­ships of being in the “most spec­tac­u­lar show on Earth.”

The Twi­light Saga: Break­ing Dawn - Part 1

Paul Giamatti Talks Rob and 'Cosmopolis'

Earlier this week, Paul Giamatti was at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival to support his film, "Win Win," a title that also aptly describes another flick the recent Golden Globe-winner has on his horizon: "Cosmopolis."

Why is "Win Win" so fitting a description of Giamatti's participation in "Cosmopolis"? Well, he gets work with director David Cronenberg and Robert Pattinson, of course!

After Giamatti, who stood with his "Win Win" costar Bobby Cannavale, admitted he was "not sure" when production on "Cosmopolis" would come together, there was one thing that was certain: he'd get to work with the "dreamiest man alive."

"I get to stalk him," a deadpan Giamatti said of getting to work on a set with R-Pattz. While Giamatti (who also divulged to MTV about his part in the highly anticipated "Hangover 2") said he hasn't yet met Pattinson he claimed (though quite possibly tracing the slightest hint of sarcasm there) to have seen the "Twilight" films.

As Pattinson explained to MTV News recently, he signed onto the project "basically because of Cronenberg." "I said yes as soon as he called," he added. "It's scary, though. It's an interesting script."

"Cosmopolis," based on the novel of the same name by Don DeLillo, is about a billionaire asset manager (Pattinson) who has a very bizarre day in Manhattan. Marion Cotillard was originally set to play Pattinson's wife in the film, but has since dropped out of the project. Kiera Knightley is now being rumored to take over the part.

Elizabeth Reaser talks about the fandemonium surrounding Rob and more

Twilight's Elizabeth Reaser feels for Robert Pattinson. She really does.

The obsessive fandemonium surrounding R.Pattz can't be easy.


"It's a complicated situation," Reaser, who plays Esme in the Twi-franchise, told me while at Sundance's Bing Bar to promote indie flick Homework. "If you're going to be an actor and you don't want to do dinner theater and you want to do movies like this, it's a crazy risk."

She continued, "I know for me, you want people to watch you tell stories. There's some part of you that is somewhat of an exhibitionist... I'm not saying you want people to chase you down the street screaming and attacking you, but it's a price you have to pay, I think."

Reaser had jetted into Utah from Baton Rouge where they're shooting the last of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, with director Bill Condon. "I feel like there's never going to be a time in my life [again] where I'm going to sit with Peter Facinelli or Nikki Reed at four in the morning with [colored contacts] in and pale makeup and laughing our butts off...giggling all day."

But it's way too soon to say goodbye. "We have so far to go that it doesn't feel like we're anywhere near the end," she said. "Plus we're going to promote these for a few more years, you know. So we're nowhere near the end."

As for that steamy BD photo of Rob and Kristen Stewart, Reaser laughed, "At least everyone knows: OK, people are naked. Just in case the frenzy was dying down, just in case no one cared, here's a naked picture of Rob and Kristen."


Robert Pattinson Causes a Stir at a Louisiana Deli

He's busy filming Breaking Dawn in Baton Rouge, La., but during a recent lunch outing at a local deli, Robert Pattinson ended up feeding his fans' appetites.

"A couple of girls who work in here are young … and they were absolutely star struck," a source at Maxwell's Market, where the actor dropped in for sandwiches, tells PEOPLE.

Pattinson is a repeat customer at the deli and, despite the attention he earned from the younger employees, the source says he's just like any other customer. "He's just a regular guy, and that's how we try to treat him," says the source.

During his most recent visit, Pattinson was accompanied by an unidentified male friend and "grabbed a couple of sandwiches and left," the source says.

As for his costar, and off-screen love Kristen Stewart, she hasn't dropped by the deli … yet. "I haven't seen her in here," the source says. "But I'm keeping my eye out."

Reese says Rob looks very different in 'Water for Elephants'

While promoting 'How Do You Know' in the UK, Reese talked a little about Rob

She's also appearing with Robert Pattinson in Water For Elephants.

And Reese, a huge fan of the Twilight films, is amused that the Brit is now a moody vampire pin-up.

"It's so funny because he's really not a bad boy. He's just a great guy and he looks very different in our film," said Reese

Reese Witherspoon claims working alongside an elephant on new movie 'Water For Elephants' was one of the best experiences of her career. Reese, 34, added the elephant helps bring her character closer to Robert Pattinson's in the film, when they meet because of the creature. "Robert Pattinson's character comes in and he's a vet and we end up being very interested in each other. It's very romantic and beautiful."

Rob's 'Most Wanted' Portrait in HQ and artist Richard Phillips talks more about it

Click for HQ


Richard Phillips talks to Vanity Fair about Rob's portrait

“After holding a contest within my studio to find the best red carpet face from the constant river of images, a composite was made from the best of the best of Pattinson’s expressions. The colorful and detailed Louis Vuitton background was to suggest a fictitious brand endorsement context that was commensurate with his position as the most popular member of the group. The difficulty became not how to render his face so he could be seen, but how to paint his presence so he could be inescapably felt when standing in front of the painting. My painting of Robert Pattinson began to fulfill its intention of giving pause, to question our relationship to the constant appearance and simultaneous dismissal of our disembodied selves in relation to a system that generates a forced intimacy with commercially enforced exceptionalism.”

“Most Wanted” opens January 27 at White Cube in London and is on display until March 5.

And for those in New York:

The American Federation of Arts (AFA) is pleased to announce that artist Richard Phillips will be giving the second ArtTalk of 2011, to be held at Christie’s on Wednesday, March 9, at 6:30 p.m. ArtTalks, the AFA’s lecture series, features notable figures in the art world. Following Phillips’s lecture, audience members are invited to participate in a question-and-answer session and wine reception. In-kind support for ArtTalks is provided by Christie’s. Tickets can be purchased online here.

Thanks to the AFA.

WFE in EW's Spring Preview and 15 Hot Movies of 2011 (Breaking Dawn included)

17 Reasons We Can't Wait for Spring

Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon as a couple of beautiful circus folk bringing Sara Gruen's best-seller to life. Adding some weight to the cast is Tai, a 9,000-pound Asian elephant.

15 Hot Movies of 2011

''To have a costar who is this reliable, this sensitive and circumspect and intelligent — it's just fabulous,'' says Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds). He's not talking about Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, who play the star performer and veterinary student in an adaptation of Sara Gruen's best-seller about a traveling circus in the 1930s. He's talking about Tai, a 9,000-pound Asian elephant.

Even if you don't know each plot twist and turn from the final book in Stephenie Meyer's best-selling series, every self-respecting Twihard is aware that Breaking Dawn features Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) becoming vampire man and wife and sharing a marital bed for the first time. ''Finally!'' laughs director Bill Condon. ''It is one of the most anticipated scenes, and I spent a tremendous amount of time thinking about it. You want to play with what people expect and maybe subvert it a little and surprise them.''

Old/New Rob Interview with CanalPlus (France) from New Moon Promo + Translation

ETA: Full translation added.

You can watch the video in better quality here


Interviewer : "What I saw outside (the hotel) is crazy! I've seen that for Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt...May be Leonardo Dicaprio. But it's really rare. What I want to know is how do you deal with all that. You are so young (23)..How do you keep calm and cool?"

Rob: " It's not easy. I always try to separate my personal and private lives. I remind myself all the time that the fans, the press..are all here for the character, not for me. It's a kinda "ego saving reflex". Actually, it's very nice, but when you're facing all these fans, you just don't know what to do to satisfy them."

Interviewer: "Yeah, but don't actors do this job for that? To be loved and admired?"

Rob: "I guess yes. In some way. But with Twilight, something amazing happened. I've become some kind of celebrity, even though when I started out, I didn't think I was that interesting as a person. And so I just wanted to play deep characters that would enrich me, psychologically."

Then they talk about the similarities between being a vampire and being an actor. The way they both depend on others, and need others to go on.

He asks Rob what he likes about vampires, and Rob says "The 'superhero' aspect. They're like semi-god, but, in the same time, they depend so much on very regular people. On what's deeply basic in ppl; their blood."

Interviewer: "It's really funny to see you talk about vampires, because I just dicovered this other movie (How to be) where you play a completely different character. I was wondering which part of you, as a person, is in this movie, or in the Twilight movie?"

Rob:" Not much. Actually I've never played a role where I can really be myself. As an actor, you think, with every role, that you'll be able to give the character sthg from yourself, your experience. But the more you try to do that, the more you realize, with every single scene, that it's coming out very differently from how you expected it, or how you intended it."

Interviewer : "It's really good to see you smile in the beginning of the movie (New Moon). You seem happy, then you disappear for most of the movie. Wasn't it frustrating for you to be absent ?"

Rob: "No. Actually, it was very nice in many ways. Twilight (1st movie) has had so much success, so we had a lot of pressure, and it would have been impossible to make the exact same movie (focused on Edward/Bella). And, also, I didn't want to be the center of this movie, didn't want to have too many responsibilities in it. Taylor got the big part of it. Which is good. Plus, I get to experiment a new angle; I'm more like a ghost, a shadow, which is stronger. Like a myth or something."

Interviewer: "How did you play that? Did you talk to the author? Or get instructions from your director?"

Rob: "I think what influenced me the most, was my first meeting with Kristen. I imagined someone completely different for the role of Bella. But Kristen/Bella was so strong. So, for this relationship to work out, I thought (back in the casting) that I had to be as strong, but also a bit fragile and somehow broken. Which is very interesting to play. And I have to thank Kristen for that."

Interviewer: "How would you describe Kristen, in three words?"

Rob: "She's so strong. (He pauses and laughs) I'm trying to be careful what I say. She's mature, and very challenging."

Interviewer: "We've been interviewing some psychologists and they're stating that this boy (Edward) terrified by his "vampiristic" impulses is somehow like a teenager terrified by his sexual impulses. Is that it? Do you think that Twilight is this specific teenager metaphor? What do you think?"

Rob: "In many ways, yes. I think so. But I don't think it's just about teenagers. I think that, in this particular movie (NM), everyone can relate to the events, the story. It was this book that encouraged me to make the movies. I read it before making the first movie. Something about how you fall in love for the first time, especially for a young man. You tend to idealize the girl, your imagination is completely flooded and you think she's just flawless whatsoever. And the more you get to know her, the more you're in love with her and you think that she's perfect and there's nothing wrong with her at all. But, in the other hand, you see more and more flaws in yourself. And I think there was this emotional outline in the movie, with this vampire blaming himself for threatening the girl he loves' life. He thinks he's gonna kill her because he's a vampire, but I mean,'s a good metaphor about the fear you can feel about the real commitment of a relationship, when you come to realize that this relationship is really important and not just a fling. You're thinking 'If I begin this, is it gonna be for life? Or will one of us end up with a broken heart if we leave each other?' So yeah; it's a good metaphor."

Interviewer: "I guess it's the young man in YOU who's talking right now, coz you've been a teenager yourself, not so long ago. So what do you like in the film industry? Who are your favorite actors? What do you like to see in movies?"

Rob: "I like Joaquin Phoenix. I like...Ryan Gosling, among the young actors I mean. I've always loved all the Brando's movies. But I don't really have a specific taste in movies...I really like the french movies. I've grown up watching a lot of french movies. I love Godard..."

Interviewer: "Which ones, for instance?"

Rob: "I love Pierrot le fou. It's one of my favorite movies. I also like...what's the title in french?...It's Eyes without face in England...?"

Interviewer: "Les yeux sans visage" (Note: It's a 1960 french horror movie, directed by Goerges Franju and adapted from Jean Redon's novel)

Rob: "Yeah..I thought this movie was amazing."

Interviewer: "Well...a young man who loves Pierrot le fou can only be a wonderful person. (He shakes his hand) Thank you very much. Robert Pattinson...hope to see you very soon. thank you again."
