Rob and Cronenberg arriving to the MTTS Photocall / Cannes 2014 [x]
David helped me becoming an actor.
Rob and David Cronenberg on the set of ‘Maps to the Stars' in LA today
“Rob is a beautiful actor who often responds to scenes without even realising what he’s doing. That’s why I love him.” - David Cronenberg
“He’s the sweetest man in the whole world.” - Robert Pattinson
Rob being cute and shy about his rambling response to a question || Press conference Cosmopolis (x)
I watched Little Ashes, in which Rob plays a young Salvador Dali; I watched Remember Me; I watched the first Twilight movie. And I watched — interestingly enough, I suppose, because people wouldn’t expect it — but you watch interviews with the guy on YouTube, you know. I want to get an idea of his sense of humor, his sense of himself, the way he handles himself, his intelligence — all of those things you can’t really tell from watching an actor play a role in a movie. I suppose in the old days you meet the guy and hang out, and go to a bar or whatever — [laughs] — but these days nobody has time for that, or the money, and so you do it some other way. And once I’d done all that stuff, I thought, This is the guy I want. I thought, He’d be terrific and I actually think he’s a very underrated actor — and it would be my pleasure to prove that by casting him.
- David Cronenberg on Robert Pattinson
“You need to be fascinated enough to stay with Eric throughout the movie. Which is why you need a charismatic actor like Rob, who has a face you want to keep looking at.” David Cronenberg about Robert Pattinson
