ROBERT PATTINSON INTERVIEW WITH RYAN SEACREST
Rob took a break from filming this morning to do a live, on-air interview with Ryan Seacrest. Rob talked about “Water for Elephants” and working with the elephants on set and jokes about his character being named Jacob. He also spoke a bit about filming for “Breaking Dawn”, commenting on the weather conditions. Despite reports that the cast is taking a break from filming due to the weather, you could hear filming going on in the background during Rob’s interview.
ROBERT PATTINSON’S VANITY FAIR INTERVIEW
We’ve seen the pics and now fans can read the interview with Robert Pattinson in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair. The interview has been posted on the magazine’s website and he talks about everything from fame, working with elephants, and Charlie Sheen, to vague references of his alleged relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart. The article also includes comments from his “Water for Elephants” co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Christophe Waltz, as well as director Francis Lawrence. Rob also reveals in the article that he’s writing a script based on a Lillian Hellman novel.
With mega-fame, it seems, a certain amount of alienation has set in. “It’s funny now,” Pattinson says, “like, trying to socialize with people. There’s this cautiousness about people which I just find really weird.
“Or I’ll be walking down the street,” he says, “and people’ll be like, ‘F*ck you!’ ” He laughs. “And I get a lot of people wanting to beat me up. Men in bars and stuff. I just leave.” He shrugs.
“God, I always talk about fame, and it’s just so boring!,” Pattinson exclaims, sounding disgusted with himself, bolting out of his chair. I tell him it’s perfectly understandable, considering what he’s been going through these last few years. “Yeah, but every time you read about someone famous talking about being famous, you’re like, ‘Shut the f*ck up,’” he says with a laugh.

ROB TO APPEAR ON JAY LENO ON MARCH 18
According to Late Night Lineups, Robert Pattinson will be making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Friday, March 18. Presumably, Rob will be on there to promote his upcoming release “Water for Elephants” which hits theaters on April 22.
KRISTEN STEWART TO SHOOT “K-11” THIS SUMMER
After a couple of years of being listed as in pre-production, Kristen Stewart’s project “K-11” finally has the financial backing to begin shooting. Variety is reporting that Intandem will put up the backing needed for Kristen’s mother, Jules Stewart, to make her directorial debut with the film. Variety is also reporting that the movie will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival next year.
K-11 references a section of the LA County Jail that is set aside for homosexuals and it is rumored that Kristen will portray a transgendered male, however no casting details are listed any longer for the project’s IMDb page. At one time, both Kristen and Nikki Reed were listed in the cast for the film. The film is not listed on either of the actresses pages any longer as well.
JACKSON RATHBONE TALKS “BREAKING DAWN” AND WINNING A RAZZIE
MTV’s “The Seven” caught up with Jackson Rathbone and spoke with him about filming “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” in Vancouver, his upcoming show with his band 100 Monkeys, and his recent Razzie win (loss?) for his performance in “The Last Airbender”. He also notes that the band has been talking to Nikki Reed about directing a video for them.
Will any of you be attending this weekend’s Twilight Convention in LA? Have you ever attended any of the conventions?
What did you think of Rob’s interview with Ryan Seacrest this morning? I swear, that boy could read the phone book and I would sit and listen for as long as he kept talking. I just love his voice!
After reading Rob’s Vanity Fair interview, I wondered if anyone else has noticed how the actors are becoming somewhat weary of working on the Twilight movies (and especially being asked questions about them)? I honestly can’t blame them. It’s not like they signed up for a sit-com with the potential of a 10-year run. It’s actually somewhat unusual for actors to commit this many years to a film character (other than the cast of Harry Potter, of course). They want to have legitimate, long-term acting careers and I totally understand their fear of being not taken seriously after this run of films. Kudos to all of them on their vast choices in the types of films they are doing to keep from being pigeon-holed.
Hmmm…I wonder if the potential role of Snow White for Kristen is what has taken her name out of the cast for “K-11” or if everything is just up in the air with that project at the moment. Nikki Reed’s name disappeared from the cast list several months ago.
What did you think of all the things that Jackson had to say in the MTV interview? Are you interested in checking out the novel that the band has written?
