Joe Anderson Shares A 'Hairy' Rob Fan Encounter

Joe Anderson talked about playing Alistair in Breaking Dawn Part 2 - and the fan encounters it led to, while filming in Vancouver:

"I hadn't even arrived at the motel and already there was fan mail. They figured out where I was going to be -- and I didn't even know. But every one of those letters was so genuine and so sweet."
The creepy stuff? That was saved for other actors. "A woman was standing outside the Sutton Place in Vancouver with a pair of scissors. She had flown from England to cut some of Robert Pattinson's hair for a doll."

Read the rest.

'Bel Ami' Production Notes: Directors Share Details

Studio Canal has released the production notes from Bel Ami to the press, ahead of the film's release in the UK (March). There are plenty of Rob mentions which we include below. 

You can read the rest at the source.

"We asked actors that we really wanted to work with, people that we have admired for a long time, explains Donnellan of their casting choices. "Kristin Scott Thomas we know of old. Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Robert Pattinson we have always admired. There’s also Colm Meaney, a wonderful Irish actor who plays Rousset and Phillip Glenister. They are all actors we love."

Ormerod and Donnellan were thrilled to be working with such a diverse cast. Donnellan describes the moment that the actors turned up for rehearsals. "It was absolutely fantastic to see them arriving one after another. They are all incredibly professional and great fun with wicked senses of humour in their own different ways; Uma, Kristin and Christina are all very different people. We had a ball, an absolutely wonderful time because the material was so fantastic, the roles and screenplay are fantastic. Everybody felt like they were being stretched, especially us because it was our first movie. Kristin, Christina, Uma and Robert would all agree that they were doing things they hadn’t done before, which was what made it so thrilling."

Dicks-Mireaux explains how the costumes she designed for Georges help to tell the story of his progression throughout the film. "He wears black virtually all the way. Maupassant writes very clearly about starching, and we spend a lot of time and effort on the shirts. This period is a very transitional period between the boiled shirt and the pleated shirt so we’ve done a combination of the two. We’ve engineered this ingenious way of making sure we can always have the stiff cuffs. I’ve gone for very high collars on Robert because he suits them really well and it makes them all stand up correctly. If you look at the British royal family they seem to wear a slightly broader look. You look at the French drawings and they seem to have a much tighter, narrower look - a bit like Christian Dior suits: that very pinched, nice, narrow, elegant, long lined leg. He had a journey and then right at the end of the journey he sort of dips and goes a little bit more bourgeois and slightly pompous. He thought he might have a moustache at the end." 

The central character of Georges was a complex and captivating subject for Rachel Bennette, as she explains. "Georges is a difficult character, that’s what makes him so fascinating. He’s quite enigmatic in certain respects and he’s not a typical character in many ways. He’s very reactive as opposed to the active protagonist that you’re used to. So it was a question of trying to get the measure of him."

"He never works and he still gets it all. That’s what’s so maddening about Georges Duroy," Donnellan concurs. "He gets the lot with no effort and it’s something we have to live with. Georges has a talent to get to the top and he’s a businessman with one commodity to sell. Another thrilling thing about Georges is his emptiness; people can project anything into him which is another reason why he’s so successful."

Bennette concludes: "I find Georges really compelling, even if I don’t always like him. There’s something about his audacity, and his daring, and his absolute refusal to be told his place. And there is something quite appealing about that: essentially it is a kind of mad courage that he has."

Is Rob The Man You'd Trade Your Husband For?

Philip Glenister Talks About "That Ugly Geezer" Robert Pattinson

On the heels of news of a Bel Ami world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, a funny interview with Philip Glenister:

You recently filmed Bel Ami with Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas, what's your part?

I play a Parisian sub-editor married to Uma Thurman (or 'The Thermanator' as she was known on set - she has a very powerful presence and she's taller than me), then that ugly geezer Robert Pattinson turns up and shags everything that moves. Apart from me, thank goodness.

More From Carter Burwell: Preparing Piano Scene For Breaking Dawn Part 2

In the past few months, Carter Burwell has given few interviews about the process of creating the score for Breaking Dawn. He spoke to Sonic Scoop in a must-read interview a while back, and now he gives a few more details to the Sag Harbor Express:

At what point in the filming process will you come onboard? Is the film usually finished by the time you see it and set the score?
Generally, I don’t actually write anything until a film has actually been shot. But, there are some exceptions.
In the movie I’m working on right now, which is “Breaking Dawn: Part II,” they needed Rob Pattinson and the actress who plays his daughter to play piano onscreen. I had to write this duet before they shot the film so they could actually learn the parts. Rob is a musician, so he prides himself on working out the fingering for these correctly.

We can't wait to hear the finished product!

Thanks TwiExaminer for the tip.

Stars Mention Rob: "He's a Lovely Guy"

Several Rob mentions in the last few days, starting with his costar in Bel Ami - Holliday Grainger. Was she scared of the kissing scenes with Rob?

Holliday said: "I've worked with him pre-Twilight so I wasn't massively scared having to go in there and snog him.”

When asked if Rob had changed since becoming a global heartthrob, she laughed: "No, not at all. He's a lovely guy. Always has been."

iCarli's Miranda Cosgrove has made no secret of her crush on Rob, she even wants him as her boyfriend in the Nickelodeon series :)

And boy does Rob leave an impression, just ask Morgan Turner (Mildred Pierce). 

She only had a brush with him in Remember Me, but that was enough to leave an impression:

Until "Mildred Pierce" came along, Turner's coolest assignment was a small role in "Remember Me" starring Robert Pattinson. It made her the envy of the schoolyard.
"I didn't really get to talk to him," she reports of the "Twilight" hunk. "But I was in his presence. And that counts."

It really does ;)

Madeleine Stowe On Unbound Captives: "We're Looking At 2013 Right Now"

It sounds like as Rob suspected, he might be a little too old to play his character on Unbound Captives. Madeleine Stowe giving MTV a production update on the Golden Globes red carpet tonight, that sounds pretty discouraging. Bummer.

Is Rob Attending Golden Globes? Yes!, No!, Maybe?

UPDATE: The Golden Globes tweeted the names of stars presenting at the show today, and Rob was not mentioned. However they are not done, so there's still hope ;)


It seems there was a bit of a jumping the gun on a BIG announcement early this morning. MTV's Joshua Horowitz tweeted a list of presenters for the Golden Globes that included Rob, only to take it back an hour later. So what happened? - our guess is that Rob either has not confirmed his attendance and the list Josh saw was a tentative one, OR he wasn't supposed to say anything and oops! he leaked the news. We're thinking hoping it's the latter.. now let's all take a deep breath and wait for the official news. In the meantime, why don't we revisit Rob's appearance on the show last year.

Rob, Rob, Rob: All The Girls Talking Rob!

This has been a busy week for Rob mentions. mainly because of his hair.. or lack of. But it seems that the buzz around him is just as high as ever.

A day after sharing a seat next to Rob at the People's Choice Awards, Betty White was still talking about him ;)

And last night Elle Fanning admitted she would love to work with Rob:

Nice! - can't wait for the public reaction when Bel Ami comes out ;)
