Robert Pattinson and Rosie: Old WFE set photos. Better quality!

We’ve seen these images before, they’re from waaaaay back toward the beginning/middle of filming but these pictures are much clearer. And a closer look at Tai as Rosie is always welcome! :) Thanks to RPAustralia for posting these.

She's so beautiful!

I spy a killer smile.

I was sad Rosie the first time I saw this (previous grainy pic). Tai blended with the canvas and I couldn't see her.

Wait... Rosie's not in THIS one. I should delete it...

Well that was a fun blast from the recent past. Don’t forget to vote for Water for Elephants director, Francis Lawrence! He directed Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video which is up for FOUR MTV Video Music Awards. Click HERE to vote!


New Robert Pattinson Interview with Movie Star (Japan)

Here’s a new Robert Pattinson interview with Movie Star Magazine (Japan). Rob talks about the future and fame and you can read the translation below.


Q: Do you think that from early on being pushed into the pub­lic spot­light has made you more aware than other peo­ple that you have to be sure to live your own life?
Rob: It’s true that I was put in a place where I had to be more mind­ful and take more respon­si­bil­ity for every­thing. I couldn’t just be aim­less. Also, the direc­tion of my career has finally moved in a pos­i­tive direc­tion and I’ve tried to make a bit of progress. Thanks to the fact that I’ve had the time to think about a lot of things dur­ing this period, life itself is now free of the anguish that I felt in my past. I’m also now aware of just how lucky I am. I think that’s why I can enjoy it more and be more aware of what’s inter­est­ing to me and expe­ri­ence it all.

Q: When some peo­ple attain the kind of enor­mous suc­cess that you have they develop a sense of guilt over how much they’re blessed. Do you have any sense of guilt?
Rob: Sense of guilt? No. I just think it’s luck. I’ve just wanted to get the most out of all my oppor­tu­ni­ties and build a long career. That’s why now I have my feet firmly planted on the ground and I try to con­cen­trate on the work I’m get­ting and try to enjoy the sit­u­a­tion I’m in with­out get­ting both­ered by all the stuff that’s hap­pen­ing around me. After all, the most impor­tant thing to me as a human and as a pro­fes­sional is to evolve.

Q: Is it pos­si­ble to real­ize your own desire to have great act­ing skills as an actor and only as an actor even when you’re in the midst of all this pop­u­lar­ity?
Rob: The major­ity of peo­ple who are crit­i­cized by the pub­lic for this and that are the peo­ple who are con­stantly putting them­selves in the pub­lic eye. So I guess that means I could say that it’s bet­ter not to show one­self in pub­lic too much. I’d like to think that if you work hard to make high qual­ity movies then you won’t be eval­u­ated as a “mean­ing­less celebrity,” but rather by other fac­tors. If you’re seen as a celebrity, then it becomes more dif­fi­cult to be eval­u­ated based on the level of excel­lence of the movies you act in. But, to give one exam­ple, Johnny Depp has been win­ning that bat­tle. He’s the kind of per­son you can’t eval­u­ate based on image right? The object of eval­u­a­tion is always his act­ing skills. That requires a lot of self-discipline, and the abil­ity to hide from the pub­lic eye has also become impor­tant. You just have to get used to that.

Q: If you look back on your cur­rent self 10 years from now, what will you think?
Rob: I’ll prob­a­bly think that I should have enjoyed every­thing more dur­ing this com­pletely amaz­ing moment in my life. But it’s just now that I’ve finally begun to be able to really enjoy everything.
