‘Robert Pattinson Deserves Credit As A Brooding Vampire’ Says Twilight’s MyAnna Buring


Robert Pattinson’s heartbreakingly hot looks leave his acting abilities in the shadows as most of the female public focus on his face rather than what’s coming out of his perfect mouth.

When Marie Claire met with Twilight and Downton Abbey star, MyAnna Buring we had to ask what she found most attractive about the British star. MyAnna told us: ‘Robert Pattinson was born beautiful, he was just one of the lucky ones.’

Although she was quick to stress just how talented he was and that this can sometimes be overlooked.

‘Robert is a really great actor a lot of people forget that,’ MyAnna said. ‘To play dark and brooding and in lust and in love with someone is not that easy.’

And it’s something Robert Pattinson pulls off with aplomb when playing Edward Cullen – so much so we often got lost in his eye during the Twilight films.

After spending six months on location with Robert during the filming of Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2, MyAnna was in awe of the actor adding: ‘You get onto a set and realise how odd and awkward [playing someone in love] can be. But people like Rob make it very natural and easy. I think there’s something very attractive about that.’

There certainly is!

Do you agree with MyAnna Buring? Is part of Robert Pattinson’s attraction down to his acting talent? Share your thoughts below.

I don't know who this lady is but I wonder if people pay attention to his acting. He was pretty good in 'How to Be' and 'Remember Me' (lol those characters) and surprisingly captivating in 'Cosmopolis'. Am I the only one actually excited about his growth? lmao

As an aside, Joaquin plays 'dark and brooding and in lust and in love' all the time.

I'm excited to see where he will go over the next few years. He has never been shy about saying that he didn't know where else he could go with Edward Cullen and it was hard and frustrating to play a character who doesn't change. Perhaps that's why he is choosing such diverse roles now? Also, most of his co-stars have talked about his interest and knowledge in cinema being far-reaching and how well read he is... Idk, we'll see I guess.

What is this name MyAnna?
What is this illusion that he's handsome?
ponpiri 8th-Mar-2013 08:03 pm (UTC)
I don't know who she is or how to pronounce her name but I'm guessing "mai-anna" or "ma-yanna"
therearewords 8th-Mar-2013 08:10 pm (UTC)
It is like a female version of mayonnaise.
gpin2084 8th-Mar-2013 08:05 pm (UTC)
I need a bit more distance and more roles to see him as anyone but Edward. He was good in 'How to Be' so here's hoping.
hateistoodark 8th-Mar-2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
I had to google that chick to know who she played on Downton srsly who the fuck?
imnotasquirrel 8th-Mar-2013 08:09 pm (UTC)
idk, when i watched the movies just the idea of spending forever with the cullens was enough to make me feel claustrophic as shit
emerald_soul 8th-Mar-2013 08:09 pm (UTC)
He has a chance at being a decent actor cause he's shown promise in other films, but he was horrendous in the Twilight movies lbr.

Although I'll never understand why he got less praise than Kristen from the directors. She was way worse.

There's a joke there somewhere but I don't want to say it.
emerald_soul 8th-Mar-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
LOL Well Bill Condon is completely up her ass and he's gay.
disko_tron 8th-Mar-2013 08:10 pm (UTC)
even in Remember Me his love scenes were still awkward. His face displayed frustration and agony as he kisses. Haven't seen Cosmopolis yet so maybe he's redeemed himself there.
emerald_soul 8th-Mar-2013 08:15 pm (UTC)
He had chemistry though with the female lead which was nice to see since he has none with Kristen or Reese in WFE.

I dislike him in love stories though. He's just not meant for it. His best movies were How to Be and Cosmopolis which weren't in the romance genre.
americnxidiot 8th-Mar-2013 08:31 pm (UTC)
oh how to be was weird and lovely. i wish he would do more off-beat comedies like that.
eyduh 8th-Mar-2013 10:10 pm (UTC)
imo, he sucks at romantic movies, but how to be and cosmopolis were pretty good
williammiller 12th-Mar-2013 12:48 am (UTC)
I liked him in Cosmopolis
lovebum4life 8th-Mar-2013 08:10 pm (UTC)
it is so weird to see the influx of rob stans that popped up in ONTD following the cheating scandal lol
ponpiri 8th-Mar-2013 08:11 pm (UTC)
I've been a stan for a long time tho just not on ontd. I'm more surprised by the secret Leo stans.
lovebum4life 8th-Mar-2013 08:29 pm (UTC)
I'm not Leo is amazing <3 <3 :3
glittersecrecy 8th-Mar-2013 08:59 pm (UTC)
mte, everyone jumped at the chance once it was temporarily okay to like him again.
rebeljean 8th-Mar-2013 09:28 pm (UTC)
Because you previously couldn't enter a Rob post without a hoard of Kristen stans attacking you for not "supporting his gf".
jess_sayin 8th-Mar-2013 08:13 pm (UTC)
haha He isn't the worst thing out there and he is rather adorable*

*only saying this because he MAY have broken up with that thing.
emerald_soul 8th-Mar-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
Eh, we'll probably get an LA sighting soon. I'm not buying break up stuff yet. Too good to be true.
gpin2084 8th-Mar-2013 08:24 pm (UTC)
Not yet. The narrative of the usual fanfics about them seem to be headed that way so maybe PR is laying the groundwork idk.
psubookworm27 8th-Mar-2013 09:57 pm (UTC)
lawd people are going to be so disappointed. He's not detaching himself from her any time soon.

la_petite_singe 8th-Mar-2013 08:29 pm (UTC)
Sorry, but my first thought was "your mama didn't name you no damn MyAnna."
madonna 8th-Mar-2013 08:30 pm (UTC)
He's actually really good when he's not in Twilight.

he can be a good actor sometimes, but not in twilight
honey_fuggle 8th-Mar-2013 08:39 pm (UTC)

I will never forgive him for ruining BD2 promo for me. Ever, so it's hard for me to say nice things about him. But he's not bad I just wouldn't call him a really great actor. I think he's improved but he doesn't deserve credit for Twilight. He sucked in those movies.
u_chai 8th-Mar-2013 09:03 pm (UTC)
What did he do to ruin the bd2 promo?
sowhat_whocares 8th-Mar-2013 09:12 pm (UTC)
played nice with Kstew lol. he threw minor, subtle shade at some moments but overall he was professional.
honey_fuggle 8th-Mar-2013 09:20 pm (UTC)
I was looking forward to deliciously awkward tension between him and Kristen, a lot of shade thrown at her, and he didn't deliver. That promo tour could've been uncomfortably awkward GOLD but no, he forgave her. He ruined everything and...I'm getting mad all over again. Guess I'm not over it.
sowhat_whocares 8th-Mar-2013 09:08 pm (UTC)
he's really good actor, he's just done a really shit job in some projects (might be the direction or the fact he didnt care that much, idk). he was shitty in all the Twilight movies...but almost everyone was. he was shitty in Remember Me, but again everyone was in that. but I thought he was GREAT in Bel Ami - the movie was meh, but him with his material was really good. and he was pretty good in Cosmopolis as well.

TBH, he's much better at comedy. I think he's comedic timing is amazing on screen...I really hope his projects coming up have more comedy for him, because that's his latent talent right there.
psubookworm27 8th-Mar-2013 09:59 pm (UTC)
I LOVED him in How to Be. I laughed my ass of at that movie.
psubookworm27 8th-Mar-2013 10:00 pm (UTC)
sowhat_whocares 8th-Mar-2013 10:57 pm (UTC)
he plays awkward so well omg. he was so pathetically oblivious in that movie, I loved him.
ion_square 9th-Mar-2013 10:46 am (UTC)
that movie is great but he's playing himself in it
