Robert Pattinson covers the November 2018 issue of Interview magazine photographed by Ryan McGinley and styled by Mel Ottenberg.
“With every single movie I’ve done, I’ve felt a compulsive need to tell the director on the first day that I have no idea what I’m doing. And I think in a larger corporate structure, people just don’t take that well. I don’t think I’m ever going to get to a point where I feel like, ‘Oh, I’m a professional actor with a set of tools ready, and I’ll be able to tell the story using whatever colors you need.’ I mean, I’ll literally do a movie specifically because I think I can’t do it. You just hope you don’t drown. And then when you don’t drown, you hopefully figure out how to swim.”
“I’m definitely not good at staying on all the talking points and actually selling a movie. I see loads of actors who are really great at that, but I just seem absolutely incapable of doing it. I feel so embarrassed, because I don’t even know if the audience is going to like the movie. You can talk about your craft, but if the audience sees it and they’re like, ‘Well, that was shit,’ then it doesn’t matter how you got there.”
