Not only because he’s been cuckolded by whatshername, and because he looks like Max Headroom in David Cronenberg‘s new anti-capitalist mindscape Cosmopolis, but because he was cutely self deprecating at the TimesTalk he and the director did last night.
Wearing a backwards baseball cap and chewing gum, the Twilight vampire admitted that when offered the Cosmopolis role, “I suddenly realized what the implications of getting an offer were–that you had to do it, which terrified me.
“I knew David had done the script and I know his work. I knew I couldn’t bullshit him.
“I called him and said, ‘I don’t know what it’s about. I don’t know what I’m doing’.”
“And I said, ‘You’re the man I want,” chimed in Cronenberg, as the audience of young women shrieked and squealed in appreciation.
There were even more female hormones raging in this room than at the Lady Bunny roast later that night.
Pattinson also talked about filming a lot inside a limo, explaining, “Everything becomes easier as soon as you you sit down in your seat.
“And if not in your seat, a bed is even better!”
By this point, the shrieks and squeals were almost deafening.
How could whatshername have cheated on this guy?
