A dancer-turned-TV-regular-turned-film-actress, Sarah Gadon weighs in this month as Carl Jung’s oft-pregnant wife Emma in David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method. She’s segueing from Mrs. Jung to Mrs. Pattinson in Cronenberg’s next, Cosmopolis– and keeping it in the family with a role in the director’s son Brandon’s sci-fi/horror debut, Antiviral…
. . .
Did you encounter any Twi-hard madness on Cosmopolis?
Not initially. But then the fans began to find out where Robert was, so it became a bit of a circus. But one of the benefits of Rob’s fame is that it brings attention to people like David and films like Cosmopolis. The tabloid stuff I don’t really about.
Here’s a scan of a great mention regarding Rob’s upcoming film, Cosmopolis, in Total Film‘s 2012 Movie Preview:
David Cronenberg may still be best known for his stomach-churning body horrors (The Fly, Videodrone, Dead Ringers) but the past decade has seen the cult Canadian enjoying growing success with less squelchy offerings. Read More…

Scans & Translation: Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart – Premiere Magazine (France) – September 2011
RP: “Too Bad…”
You tell ‘em, Rob! LOL
Here’s the interview including Rob’s portion only:
Première: How long did it take to film both movies?
RP: 8 months!
P: Not to quote her, but Kristen Stewart told us 6.
RP: I had to stay longer.
P: Were there some mornings when you got up and asked yourself: ‘I can’t believe we’re still filming this movie?’
RP: For sure, I mean we spent two months shooting in the same room in front of a huge green screen.
P: I hope it was the sex scene!
RP: Nope! This one we wrapped in a day. No, we had to film scenes where nothing happens. We were trapped in this green screen room with fake snow all over the floor and we spent our days barely saying a word, looking each other in the , trying to look as intense as possible.
P: Nobody told you you were part of an experiment?
RP: That’s it exactly, ‘We’re going to put you in this green screen for 8 weeks, we’ll see which one will break down first.’
P: Did Bill Condon come on set with his Oscar beneath his arm?
RP: No, that’s not like him. But I don’t think he realize what he got himself into. He’s someone that doesn’t stress much though or he’s really good at hiding it!
It’s funny, really. Everyone came to him screaming: ‘Bill, did you see this? It’s nonsense!’ He’d just look at them and say ‘I know, it’s crazy.’ And the next second, he was gone.
P: It’s a way like any other of solving problems.
RP: You should have seen him. ‘I completely agree with you. It’s a disaster.’ And then he’d been gone for the rest of the day. Bill is hilarious and he put some of his sense of humor in the movie. The Twilight saga is not really known for its fun side but the previous directors seemed really attached to the angst aspect. The beginning of the last movie is the complete opposite: light, relaxing…
P: The first images of the trailer looked indeed bright and sunny.
Bill is an excellent screenwriter as well. Like Chris Weitz, who was more daring with New Moon. He wasn’t scared of drifting away from the book sometimes. In any other movie, when a line doesn’t work, we change it during filming so it flows better. But it wasn’t always possible with Twilight. If I was ever uncomfortable with a line, I was told ‘You have to say this. It’s in the book!’ Bill didn’t hesitate, ‘We’ll adjust, it’s my movie after all…’ *laughs*
P: You just made millions of fans angry.
RP: Too bad. It just reminds me of something I saw not too long ago, when I stumbled into a picture of a girl who had the famous line ‘And the lion fell in love with the lamb’ tattooed on her. I looked at it twice and she had ‘And the lamb fell in love with the lion’ instead. Can you imagine that, having a movie line engraved on your skin and it’s not even the right one?
P: In the first three movies, it’s always about repressing sexuality. In this one, it’s party time: midnight baths, sex scenes where the bed breaks, a rushed pregnancy… I don’t know if I can handle all of this at once.
RP: It scared me a little too, to be honest. When I heard about the last book and was said: ‘You’ll see, they sleep together all the time, it’s rough sometimes too. Jacob falls in love with a baby…’ I was dumbfounded. Summarized like this, you’d think it was the most screwed up story ever. But when you read it, it’s not as shocking/scandalous. For those who don’t know the books, I’m sure this movie is going to be by far the most interesting of the saga. We’re gone from the teenaged fantastic genre and enter a weird drama that ventures into horror at times. There are scenes were Bella looks like an alien. When the baby eats her from inside, she looks so thin and ghastly. Kristen had to wear this horrible makeup and when I’d see her come on set, I’d ask the crew: ‘’Are you sure we’re filming Twilight? Isn’t it supposed to be harmless and PG-13?’
P: I’m sure David Cronenberg is going to be pleased. ‘Robert just filmed the adaptation of Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo.)
RP: I think he is going to enjoy certain scenes, like the one where I open her up by biting through her placenta. It wouldn’t have played up in one of his feature films; he would have filmed it with a close-up of course.
P: With Breaking Dawn, I think you will attract a new audience. Beginning with those who will want to see it for the twisted plot.
RP: They’re going to get their money’s worth. It’s hilarious, No movie this size dares taking those kind of risks. But since the craziest scenes are a big part of the story going forward, it was impossible to not have them included in the film. We would look at each other every day and say ’I think we don’t have a choice, we have to film those weird stuff.’ There was no way we would tone it down.
P: So you became an in ‘oral Caesarean’ expert?
RP: It was without a doubt the funniest thing I ever had to do. I’d raise my head up and I was covered with cottage cheese or whatever substance they put in there. Before filming the scene, Stephenie Meyer, a midwife, Kristen and I sat down to talk to a doctor to decide where I was supposed to bite if this situation would ever occur in real life. The doctor looked at us a bit puzzled and said: ‘I don’t think you could ever do this in real life.’ *laughs*
P: I’m getting more and more excited to see this movie…
RP: I’m eager too. I’m probably going to die laughing watching it.
P: Stop me if I’m wrong but I feel like the hysteria surrounding the saga is dying down, that you can now lead sort of a normal life…
RP: Not yet, no. In LA, I have at least 40 seconds from the moment I arrive somewhere, before I get asked for my autograph. It’s Twitter’s fault. If this website didn’t exist, I’d be in peace. When I cross a glance at someone, they hurry to get their phone out. I know perfectly well that I’m screwed and that I’m going to spend a big part of my day shaking people off. It’s frustrating.
P: Is it true that you caused a riot in Brazil, when you filmed the honeymoon?
Yes, we did cause one at the airport that almost got us arrested. I still don’t know why but it was kind of scary. The immigration guy told me: ‘You’re in my country, we’re gonna play by my rules.’ ‘Whatever you want just let me leave your airport.’ *laughs*
P: How was it like on set on the last day of filming Breaking Dawn, when you had to say goodbye to 4 years of Twilight?
We were in Canada for the last day of shooting with the entire crew. A normal day on the set of Breaking Dawn, we were shooting at night, it was freezing and raining… When the first assistant announced the end with his clapperboard, everybody locked themselves up in their trailer without even having a last drink. But my last day, strictly speaking, came a bit later and it was amazing. Part of the crew got back together to film additional shots in the Caribbean. It was just Kristen and I, no worries… We were shooting in the sea so I didn’t have to have makeup on or wear my contacts. It was so hot, at the end of the day we all went out for cocktails on the beach, watching the sun rise. I then asked myself why we didn’t do this in those four years. Every difficult moment just vanished.

It’s a nice day for a wet wedding…
The fourth Twilight Saga film has been a long time coming for fans – it’ll have been 16 months since Eclipse hit the cinemas by the time Breaking Dawn: Part 1 finally arrives. But form what we’ve glimsed so far, it’s going to have been worth the wait!
Engaged during Eclipse, Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) are quick to wed – but as idyllic as the ceremony seems on-screen, it was something of an endurance test for the actors involved… “It rained the whole time we shot the wedding scenes” recalls Peter Facinelli, who plays Edward’s adoptive father, Carlisle Cullen. “They blocked it out by putting tarps up, so you’ll never see it, but it was very wet and muddy and cold.”
“It was rough,” agrees Kellan Lutz, who plays Edward’s adoptive brother, Emmett. “I felt bad for the women on the film – they were wearing these beautiful, skin-tight dresses and didn’t have heaters by them. And a lot of us were playing vampires so we had to not shiver, because vampires don’t get cold!”
Fortunately, Stewart recalls the wedding scenes a little more fondly. “When I walked on set, and saw the entire cast sitting in the pews, it was emotional in such a real way – I just literally felt like thanking them all for coming!”
DID YOU KNOW? The Vancouver Island set was evacuated due to tsunami fears, after the Japanese earthquake struck on 11 March, but thankfully everyone was OK.

Hungry Men LOL
In Entertainment Weekly‘s August 5th publication, they have an article about the men of the upcoming book-to-film adaptation of The Hunger Games. Right off the bat, Rob receives an honorable mention on the amazing, overnight craze of certain franchises.
“Its an interesting thing to witness how a spotlight sits on a young actor. Weeks before Twilight stormed its way into theaters, for instance, a still largely unknown Robert Pattinson winced and demurred his way through a few questions on a crowded patio of a chic Los Angeles hotel. His posture was practically O-shaped as he spoke into the neckline of his shirt before wondering, rather endearingly, if we might go somewhere less populated. Today, at the bustling Early Girl restaurant in Asheville, NC an entirely different young man from an entirely different franchise, Josh Hutcherson, 18, sits beaming and gregarious over a rapidly vanishing plate of eggs and bacon. Hutcherson plays the beloved Peeta in the movie adaptation of Suzanna Collins’ gripping trilogy, ‘The Hunger Games.”
‘Animal Magnetism‘…? Meow…
On ‘Remember Me’ – “I liked the idea of this film. But I also thought that it was a fairly good career step. It doesn’t alienate the audience of the image that I have. It’s not a ultra-violent or ultra-depressing movie. It’s a simple. old-fashioned story, which is not asking too much from the audience. I thought that was quite good because its my first big movie outside of the Twilight stuff. I’m doing a David Cronenberg movie next. Cosmopolis, with Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti, which is a pretty big step for me. After that I’m hoping to be producing something. I’m not entirely sure yet.”
What drew him to drama, the movies. “I guess it was a variety of things… the pretty girls?” he grins. “There was a theater company around the corner from my house (in Barnes, London). I guess it was something that I always wanted to do, but I thought that it was also kind of pretentious. I didnt’ mind the kids that were acting in school, but I wanted to do it secretly outside of school. I just liked the environment. I worked backstage for about three years, and just watched everything. Then I did a couple of plays, then I got an agent from one of those plays. Then my first audition was for ‘Troy’ – I was auditioning to play Brad Pitt’s cousin. I was like “What? I’m gonna play Brad Pitt’s cousin?” That was the first time that I’d ever done anything ,so that excitement held for something like six months, then I did ‘Vanity Fair’ with Reese.”
“After Vanity Fair, I went to South Africa (for Curse of the Ring) for three months, which for a 17-year-old was pretty great. You get an apartment, you get paid. Its fun, I thought. ‘Okay, I’m an actor now.'”
Today, he’s more pragmatic. “I enjoyed them then, but I don’t now. If anything I wish that I could stay in a shitty hotel and be a part of everything. I’m always separated from the crew now. I have to be in some secure place and I’m not able to hang out with anyone. That is the best of part of doing movies, too, where everyone is so tight for three months so when you leave you’ve actually created a relationship with people. Right now, I’m doing things where I don’t even know people’s names. It’s very frustrating but I have to figure out ways to live my life the way I want to live it. It just takes a while, and it’s not like there’s any map or guide for this life of mine.
“Most actors I see try to encourage it (a fan base) because they think that’s what’s gonna give them a long-lasting career. I just don’t think that is the case. The more that you reveal of yourself, the more you over-saturate your image, and the less interesting that people find you. If you’re just an empty shell with your face stuck on everything, its cool, but the hysteria can only last so long. Mystery lasts a lot longer yet the industry is devoted to tearing every shred of mystery left in any kind of celebrity apart, so you have to work to maintain anything. In my case, I just hide. I’m in stand-by mode until I actually do something. If I’m not working I just sit around. I try to watch a film but my attention span is so short that I’m bored after 20 minutes. I used to play this game in iPhone, ‘Fall Down’ – it’s the most ridiculous thing which involves absolutely no brain effort whatsoever and I’d sit and sometimes play it for 16 hours. I get obsessed with things in short bursts. Like in the beginning of the last Twilight movie, I was working out a lot because I had to take my shirt off all the time. So I was obsessed of going to the gym all the time and cycling everywhere, but as soon as I finished. I just stopped dead. And I haven’t gone to the gym since.
He deleted his personal photos. “I actually managed to delete every single photo that I took on my phone from the beginning of Twilight until now, which was my only record of my life.
How it happened? “What can I say, I was incredible bored, so I tried to update my iPhone and wiped everything out.”
