‘Water for Elephants’ costume designer, Jacqueline West says Robert Pattinson is the next Brad Pitt
We’re All Made of Stars…
Hmm.. I don’t know about Brad Pitt and all, but I can definitely understand what she’s trying to say. Remember back in the day when Brad Pitt was the big star? It’s kinda like that…
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.”
