It’s Robert Pattinson such as you’ve by no means seen him earlier than!
The 32-year-old actor has made a reputation for himself by taking part in sullen and darkish characters, however in his new Western movie (with a twist), Damsel, he’s taking over comedy.
“It was really fun. I really wanted to do one for ages,” Pattinson instructed ET’s Katie Krause at the Hollywood premiere of the movie on Wednesday. “I imply, I’ve performed plenty of critical psychopaths so I believed I might play a humorous psychopath.”
The movie turns the Western archetype on its head due to Pattinson’s co-star, Mia Wasikowska’s, character, Penelope.
“It seemed kind of subversive. Most Westerns, the archetype lead cowboy is someone who’s sort of, they can handle anything and it’s them against the world and they come to save the damsel but pretty much every single male character in this movie is completely inept,” Pattinson defined. “They think they’re trying to save the damsel but actually they’re incapable of anything at all. They’re incapable of saving themselves.”
Pattinson himself has labored with many robust boss women in his prolonged profession, and named just a few for ET. “Oh tons! I imply, I’ve labored with some actual powerhouses. Definitely Mia is one among them, clearly. Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman,” he stated.
But what about his Twilight co-star and ex-girlfriend, Kristen Stewart?
“Kristen Stewart, Kristen too! Kristen Stewart as well, yeah, yeah, yeah,” he insisted. “Catherine Hardwicke, too. She’s great.”
Earlier this month, Pattinson and Stewart reunited at Lily-Rose Depp’s 19th birthday celebration at the Chateau Marmont. This inevitably excited followers because it’s been virtually 10 years since the movie model of Twilight was launched.
So, what would Pattinson say to his youthful self when trying again at his first day on set?
“I don’t know, just have fun!” he stated. “The whole ride’s been really great. I’ve just been incredibly lucky in my career and my life. I’m really appreciative of everything.”
Magnolia Pictures will launch Damsel in theaters on June 22.
