Robert Pattinson Blasts Film Age Restrictions

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson has blasted film age restrictions as "crazy."

The Twilight Saga heartthrob claims adult movies shouldn't be subject to strict restrictions since most teenagers already have access to pornography on the internet, and thinks violence is more damaging than sex.

The 26 year old actor - who currently stars as a billionaire embarking upon a violence-ridden 24 hour journey across Manhattan in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis - told The Sun, "You're immediately in the highest rating with things to do with sex. But you can have violence. It's like, 'What?!' It's completely crazy. I don't think there's anything in Cosmopolis that's particularly... there's nothing bad. I don't think there's anything that would have shocked me when I was 13. Especially when every single kid nowadays probably watches hardcore pornography on the internet. It's no worse - in fact, it's a lot better."

Robert has a wild threesome in the film and shoots himself in the hand but he insists it's not as violent as people make out: "I'm not worried about the violence or the sex or anything like that. Transformers is more violent than Cosmopolis."


Robert Pattinson: I’m Not Buff Enough For Action Movies

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson isn't "buff enough" to be an action star.

The Twilight Saga hunk admitted he would prefer to make smaller, gritty dramas rather than take on blockbuster roles because he thinks he doesn't have the physique to be an action hero.

"If there is a way to maintain a career doing small, interesting movies I would take that option. I'm not buff enough for robot movies."

Robert also revealed he lacks confidence in his abilities and isn't expecting anyone to go wild for his latest movie Cosmopolis: "That's my biggest problem, confidence. I'm taking baby steps and hoping people will keep employing me. I can't see tons of people watching Cosmopolis and screaming at it. It would be amazing if they did."

Robert Pattinson Didn’t Understand Cosmopolis

CosmopolisRobert Pattinson was cast in Cosmopolis because he didn't understand it.

The British actor plays billionaire tycoon Eric Packer in the movie - set in a futuristic New York, which is in turmoil because of the decline of capitalism - and thinks being "lost and confused" when reading the script worked in his favor.

"It's funny, I kept saying when I read it, 'I can't understand,' I told David [Cronenberg, director] I didn't understand it. I kind of still, I watch it and I want to imagine something else, and I guess that's how I was trying to play it, like just imagining something as something else the whole time, and not being able to identify it. David quite quickly realized that what he liked was when I didn't have any idea what I was doing, like I mean I was sort of sitting there, completely lost and confused, and he was like, 'That was the one!'"

Robert Pattinson Worried About Cosmopolis For Two Weeks

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson spent two weeks "worrying" about playing a billionaire in Cosmopolis.

The Twilight actor locked himself in his hotel room for a fortnight prior to shooting the drama movie - which sees him play Eric Packer, a multi-billionaire Wall Street CEO - but he was calmed down by director David Cronenberg who reassured him that his talent would bring out the best in his alter-ego.

"The preparation, I kind of spent two weeks in my hotel room worrying and confusing myself. I remember the weekend before we started shooting, I called David to talk to him about it, to ask him 'one question' like, 'Want to talk about the movie for a bit?' So then I went round to David's house and he said, 'It doesn't really matter. Let's just start, then something will happen.' I think Eric Packer's impossible to approach like you would a normal character."

The 26-year-old star felt the film script was more like lyrics from a song which he found "easier" to comprehend and as a result he didn't want to alter any of the words.

Robert Pattinson ‘Curious’ About Catching Fire Role

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson admits he was "curious" about starring in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The Twilight Saga star has been linked with the role of Finnick Odair - known by fans of the Suzanne Collins book trilogy for being the victor of the 65th Hunger Games - and while he was intrigued at the prospect of being offered the part, the 26-year-old actor's agent insists he will not be appearing in the movie.

"I woke up and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games. I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent. My agent was like, 'No.' [My agent] was like no one's going to offer you that part. I was like, thanks for the reassurance."

Production on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set to begin this fall ahead of its planned release date in November 2013, with Francis Lawrence - who worked with Robert on 2011 movie Water For Elephants - set to direct the film.

Robert Pattinson Refused to Bare All for Cronenberg Film

Robert Pattinson and David CronenbergRobert Pattinson refused to bare all for his new movie.

The British heartthrob stars in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, and although he is a huge fan of the director and had promised to do anything he asked, he drew the line at frontal nudity.

"Five minutes before we filmed, David told me, 'I want to see the bottom of your balls on the top of the frame.' At the moment, I reminded myself that I would do anything for him. So I went back to see him and told him that wouldn't happen. He took it really well. At the start, it's a very bizarre scene that you won't see again in another movie, I promise," he said.

While he enjoyed making the movie - based on the novel by Don DeLillo - he admitted he was anxious he wouldn't be good enough for the role: "I spent two weeks in a hotel room worrying and confusing myself."

Robert Pattinson Scared of Sex Scene

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in Breakin Dawn - Part 1Robert Pattinson was "scared" when he had to film a sex scene with girlfriend Kristen Stewart

The 25-year-old star and the brunette beauty performed a raunchy scene in which they break the bed in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, and the actor admits he felt more distracted looking for his cue rather than romantic.

"I've never done a sex scene where it's kind of scary because you think something is going to fall on you! There was a whole stunt set up with three guys, who do all the explosions and things, all lying under the bed. I spent the whole time looking at them for a signal. It was funny, though!"

The British actor has taken Kristen to the UK on a number of occasions, but the US-born actress is "always amazed" at how many people go to the pub during their lunchtime. "I probably spend more time in the UK than Los Angeles, but I've been so busy traveling with work that I don't really know where I'm going to be based full-time yet. She's always amazed by the fact that it is totally acceptable to go to a pub at lunchtime over here. I don't even do that."

Jennifer Lawrence: Hunger Games Stars Hotter than Twilight Actors

Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger GamesJennifer Lawrence says her male Hunger Games co-stars are "hotter" than the Twilight Saga hunks.

The actress - who plays 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen in the eagerly anticipated novel adaptation of the Suzanne Collins trilogy - admitted Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner from the vampire film franchise are good looking but says her loyalties lie with her co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson.

Joking about a Twilight / Hunger Games feud, Jennifer told Access Hollywood, "Since the feud is now out in the open I'm going to have to go with our guys as hotter than the stars of Twilight. Obviously Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are gorgeous but I have to go with my boys."
