Pat­tin­son rein­vents his Twi­light im­age

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

IF THE trailer for his lat­est movie is any in­di­ca­tion, Robert Pat­tin­son is work­ing hard to shed his teen­dream im­age. Not only does theTwi­light star ex­hibit a vi­o­lent streak in a sneak peek of Cos­mopo­lis – he also strips down and en­gages in graphic sex.

In the film, by edgy A Dan­ger­ous Method di­rec­tor David Cro­nen­berg and based on a book by Don DeLillo, Pat­tin­son plays a cold, cal­cu­lat­ing Wall Street king on a 24-hour odyssey across a dystopian Man­hat­tan. In the trailer, he’s shown ly­ing naked on a bed with a curly-haired woman in mid-tryst when she points a gun at him.

An­other shot shows Pat­tin­son hav­ing sex with a brunette in the back seat of a chauf­feured Town Car.

In an­other im­age, Pat­tin­son sits on a couch, and points a gun at his own hand, pulling the trig­ger. He also ap­pears to stab a man in the face.

Over­all, Pat­tin­son’s role in Cos­mopo­lis ap­pears to be a far cry from his vam­pire char­ac­ter Ed­ward Cullen in Twi­light.

The ac­tor said that film­ing the sex scenes for Cos­mopo­lis was far more dif­fi­cult than shoot­ing his fa­mous love scene with Kris­ten Ste­wart in Break­ing Dawn, be­cause he and Ste­wart had filmed two pre­vi­ous movies to­gether be­fore strip­ping down in Break­ing Dawn.

‘‘There are three sex scenes in ( Cos­mopo­lis) and ev­ery sex scene was with (a dif­fer­ent) ac­tress and I met them that day,’’ Pat­tin­son says.

‘‘I was do­ing a scene with Juli­ette Binoche, the first time I’d ever met Juli­ette Binoche.

‘‘She’s one of my favourite ac­tresses in the world and within an hour of meet­ing her we had to be pre­tend­ing to have sex.’’
