Taffy Akner profiled Robert Pattinson for GQ's September cover story.
They were trying to decide what activity to do together for the profile. Rob wanted to do ayahuasca with Taffy, but they decided there was too much vomiting involved for an interview.
Another suggestion from Rob:
“Let’s get fecal-matter transplants." "You can have an athlete’s shit put inside you and then you’re an athlete afterwards.”
He didn't try to do a lot of big blockbusters after Twilight:
“I think you have to have a specific type of confidence to be in those movies.”
During the height of his twilight fame he used to ride in the trunks of cars constantly.
“People were like, ‘It’s fine, who cares?’ ” he says now. “ ‘They’re just photos or whatever.’ They’ll say, ‘Just live your life.’ But that’s not life for me, if someone’s observing it.”
FKA Twigs named their dog Solo.
He doesn't like the promotional part of the movie making process and is hyperaware of talking about his personal life or saying things he hasn't said before.
“I want to be misunderstood. People are always changing, and the more you put something down in print, people form opinions and they’re constantly creating who they think you are. If you do something that contradicts that, or if you do something which goes out of that box, then you can look like a liar or something like that.”
He really loves Kevin Costner's "Waterworld"
