Résumé de l'article de The Hollywood Reporter:
Concernant l'audition qu'il a dû faire pour 'The Rover' chez David Michod: "Je déteste auditionner," dit il. "Je n'y arrive pas. Je deviens tellement nerveux. Une nervosité paralysante. Je suis mauvais en audition et je me sens affreusement mal après". "C'était terrifiant," dit il "C'est vraiment, vraiment rare que je veuille autant faire un truc."
(...)
Il n'aurait pas dû stresser (même si ça l'a peut être aidé) car David Michod dit qu' "Il s'en est sorti haut la main".  "De tous les acteurs qui sont entrés dans la pièce, ce fut celui qui avait une version du personnage la plus approfondie et qui n'était différente de la mienne. C'était excitant car d'un seul coup je pouvais visualiser le film"
(...)
'The Rover' est l'un des deux films sur lesquels Pattinson compte pour se propulser vers la seconde phase de sa carrière, avec aussi la satire sur Hollywood 'Maps to the Stars' de David Cronenberg,  qui sortira à l'automne (Déjà dans les cinémas en France). Les deux films sont des films indépendants, tous les deux de vrais rôles qu'il a voulu, tous les deux aussi différents de Twilight qu'il est possible de l'être et tous deux aussi importants pour démontrer que Pattinson a grandi.
(...)
Il n'a plus peur à l'idée de téléphoner aux cinéastes qu'il admire, comme il l'a fait pour celui de 'Spring Breaker', Harmony Korine. "Nous sommes sortis diner. Il était vraiment sympa. Mais ça m'a pris pas mal de temps avant de réaliser que je pouvais faire ça," dit Pattinson au sujet des appels pour démarcher les réalisateur. Korine est actuellement en train d'écrire une script pour lui, entouré de mystère. "Il ne veut même pas me dire à moi de quoi ça parle" dit en souriant.
(...)
"J'ai fait des interviews il y a quelques temps, et il  me font passer pour quelqu'un de maniaco-dépressif sur le point de se suicider," dit il "Et j'ai envie de dire : 'Non je ne le suis pas!' "
(...)
A propos du marketing autour de Twilight: "Tout a changé quand ils ont fait le marketing, et que le public général a commencé à voir les films d'une façon différente quand ils ont commencé à mettre en avant les histoires de 'team'" dit il de cette expérience globalement positive. "C'était du genre 'Je suis Team Edward ou Team Jacob.' Ça a tout saturé et à partir de là il y a eu des réactions violentes. Alors que pour le premier film , il n'y avait pas eu du tout ce genre de réactions."
(...)
Il est assez indifférent à l’égare de l'argent (chose facile lorsque vous en avez plein) et il a très peu de choses de valeurs en dehors de sa collection d'environ 17 guitares. "J'achète de belles guitares, et c'est bien ma seule dépense," dit il en sélectionnant "une Gibson J100 acoustique de 1943 ou quelque chose comme ça."

Il a récemment vendu sa maison construite en 1922 à Los Feliz qu'il avait acheté pour $6.27 millions il y a 3 ans car il se sentait noyé par sa taille démesurée "C'était une maison trop grande," dit il. "Elle était incroyable, comme à Versailles. Elle était absolument et complétement hallucinante. Il y avait ce jardin incroyable, mais au final vous ne vivez que dans une seule pièce de toutes façons. Je pourrais vraiment vivre dans une cellule à partir du moment où il y a une fenêtre."

Depuis il a emménagé dans une maison qu'il loue dans un quartier protégé de Coldwater Canyon. Sa déco est vraiment épurée: il a emménagé avec simplement 3 matelas gonflables et "cette espèce de chaise merdique que les anciens propriétaires avaient laissé (à Los Feliz)" dit il en riant. "Je bouge les matelas dans les différentes pièces d'un jour à l'autre. Ce fut un peu bizarre pendant un certain temps."

Depuis qu'il a déménagé, il a été incapable de mettre la main sur pas mal de ses affaires, dont des vêtements dont il avait besoin. "Je ne comprends pas pourquoi je n'ai plus de vêtements," dit il en grognant. "J'ai pour ainsi dire volé tous les vêtements qu'on a pu me donner lors des avant première, mais pourtant dans mon placard il n'y a que 3 trucs."
(...)
"J'étais passionné par l'histoire du cinéma quand j'étais adolescent; je pensaisque ça pouvait  impressionner les gens," dit il. "Et puis vous vieillissez et plus personne n'en a rien à foutre."

Cronenberg prends ça avec des pincettes. "Il a une culture incroyable du cinéma, presque académique," dit il. "Je me souviens être venu sur le plateau de 'Cosmopolis' alors qu'il était en train de parler avec Juliette Binoche de films français obscures, et ça m'a surpris. Mais en apprenant à mieux le connaître, j'ai trouvé qu'il avait une sensibilité très Européenne. Il a un intellect hautement fonctionnel, ce qui peut peut être surprendre vu les personnages qu'il incarne."
Concernant son audition pour 'Twilight': Il avait fait une cassette l'audition quand il était chez lui à Londres, "avec Tom (Sturridge) qui jouait le rôle de Bella." Après ça, la réalisatrice Catherine Hardwicke lui a téléphoné à 2h30 du matin, et ils ont eu cette "conversation ridicule, car je n'avais pas lu les livres ni même le script et je racontais des choses que j'inventais au téléphone."

Il est alors allé chez Hardwicke à Venice, en Californie, et c'est là qu'il a rencontré Stewart, qui avait déjà été choisie pour le rôle principale. "Ils faisaient des tests caméra avec 4 personnes ," se souvient-il. "Dans une des scènes, je devais normalement retirer ma chemise et je pense que j'ai été le seul mec à ne pas le faire."

Lionsgate n'a pas été immédiatement convaincu par Rob et certains des producteurs se demandaient s'il n'était pas trop âgé pour le rôle d'un éternel lycéen (il avait 21 ans à l'époque), mais son agent était là pour le pousser. "Stephanie me disait: 'Tu dois y aller et rencontrer les producteurs et surtout rase toi 20 fois avant d'y aller'".

Et le rasage a fonctionné, et Pattinson a eu le rôle: "C'était je pense ma dernière chance lorsque j'ai décroché ce rôle pour Twilight."

Les 5 films de la saga ont changé sa vie, à sa grande surprise. Il pensait que ce serait "comme (le précédent film de Hardwicke) 'Thirteen' mais avec des vampires. Je ne pensais sincèrement pas que ça deviendrait des blockbusters." Il dit que le rôle d' Edward était étonnement un défi: "C'était un personnage assez contraignant, d'une certaine façon. Vous voulez le rendre le plus dramatique possible mais en faite c'est quelqu'un qui ne perd jamais son sang froid et donc je me disait 'Pu--- comment je vais faire ça?' Je pense que c'était un des rôles les plus difficiles que j'ai pu faire."

Pattinson a passé les 4 années suivantes dans le zone Twilight et s'est à peine arrêté de travailler depuis. Il n'a pas pris de vacances depuis des années, en partie parce que sa célébrité rend le fait de voyager assez difficile pour lui . "Je ne crois pas que j'ai voyagé pour autre chose que pour le boulot," dit il. "J'ai peur de rater quelque chose."
(...)
Le tournage de 'The Rover':  Ça a été tourné "au milieu de nulle part," dit il.
(...)
Il a tourné là 41 jours, logeant dans ce qui semblait être "un conteneur maritime avec des fenêtres," au beau milieu d'une vague de chaleur avec des températures dépassant les 100° et "des millions de mouches. Dès qu'il faisait le jour, vous aviez des mouches qui essayaient de rentrer dans vos yeux toute la journée."

Malgré tout ça, "C'était vraiment génial, de juste pouvoir voir sur des kilomètres à la ronde," dit Pattinson. "C'était vraiment quelque chose d'apaisant".

Un ami lui a donné une cassette sur la méditation pendant qu'il travaillait sur 'Maps to the stars' à Toronto, et il ne s'en séparait pas. "Je suis assez cool avec la plupart des choses," ajoute t-il, notant la seule exception était les paparazzi, qui le chasse encore. Il se souvient avoir un jour été poursuivi pendant des heures alors qu'il faisait tout pour ne pas les mener chez lui. "Il y avait environ 8 voitures qui me suivait. Et ça a duré 10 heures comme ça. Je ne savais pas du tout quoi faire. Mais vous finissez par trouver un moyen de gérer ça. Ça fait tellement longtemps maintenant, ça fait juste partie de ma vie. Je ne me souviens même plus de ma vie d'avant."

Il dit qu'à présent sa vie est assez solitaire ou faite de sorties avec ses amis plutôt que les soirées tape à l’œil de célébrités.

Il se dit "assez solitaire", même si pour un solitaire, il est vraiment affable mais aussi loyal. Il a gardé la plupart des amis avec qui il a grandi, ainsi que le même manager (Nick Frenkel) et son agent (Ritz). "Elle a encore un sac que j'ai laissé chez elle," plaisante t-il, "sans doute rempli de mon linge sale."

Deux jours avant notre rencontre, il célèbrait son anniversaire le 13 mai avecavec une vingtaine d'amis au Chateau Marmont, autour d'un diner qui "s'est éternisé." Il dit qu'il est encore en train de récupérer. "Je suis à L.A. depuis 5 ans, donc je connais pas mal de gens ici maintenant. C'était sympa."

Il a aussi gardé le contact avec certains de ses potes de 'Twilight' et joue occasionnellement au poker avec Kellan Lutz, qui est clairement meilleur que lui, à son plus grand regret. "C'est ridicule!" dit il. "C'est comme s'ils me demandaient tout simplement: 'Tu veux dépenser $500 pour traîner avec nous?' 'Oh, oui génial!'".

A part ces quelques escapades, il admet être assez esthète et dit que récemment, son plus grand plaisir est de se laisser flotter sur une chaise gonflable au milieu d'une piscine avec une bouteille de rosé. "La sensation, c'est le paradis absolu. C'est tout ce dont j'ai besoin dans ma vie" dit il.

Il est presque effrayant de normalité. Une anti-star, un acteur qui est tombé dans la célébrité malgré lui, une célébrité dont il ne veut pas et dont il n'a pas plus besoin que la superbe maison superflue qu'il a abandonné à Los Feliz. "Il pourrait surfer sur cette vague de célébrité et continuer de faire des films de studio à gros budget," dit Cronenberg. "Mais ce n'est pas son désir de devenir une grande star à Hollywoodienne"

Ce qu'il désire vraiment reste indéfini. S'améliorer lui même en fait partie: "Je ne sais pas si j'ai particulièrement trouvé ma voie en tant qu'acteur – je dois encore prouver certaines choses," dit il. A coté de ça, il est une créature rare, un jeune homme qui semble heureux dans la globalité. "J'ai des désirs assez simples. Je n'ai besoin de rien. Je ne veux rien du tout."

From The Hollywood Reporter:
On April 21, 2012, Robert Pattinson slipped into a rented Toyota Camry and set out on the 10-minute drive from his home in L.A.'s Los Feliz to Koreatown. The actor was anxious; he was about to audition for a role he desperately wanted, and auditions are hardly his forte. "I hate auditioning," he says. "I just can't do it. I get so nervous, like cripplingly nervous. I'm bad at them, and I feel awful afterward." Nor were his nerves soothed by his recent forays into indie film. Such pictures as Bel Ami and Little Ashes had come and gone with more of a fizzle than a bang, and Cosmopolis would sputter out soon -- all mere squibs compared to the supernova Twilight, which earned $3.3 billion at the box office and brought Pattinson $20 million for its final installment alone. 
He wanted this part -- needed it, even -- to prove he no longer was just a dark, brooding, iridescent, slightly humorless, 100-year-old vampire named Edward Cullen. So he arrived at his destination young, handsome, famous and worried as hell. "It was terrifying," he says. "It's kind of rare that I really, really want stuff." 
He shouldn't have stressed (though maybe that helped). "He came through with flying colors," says David Michod, the Australian director of 2010's Animal Kingdom, who put the actor through his paces in a marathon three-hour meeting that included lengthy conversations, scene readings and improvisation, all to see if he could play a slow-witted gang member who sets out on a road trip with Guy Pearce across a dystopian Australia in search of the latter's stolen car. "He came the closest of any actor to walking into the room with a beautiful, fully realized version of the character that was not dissimilar to mine. It was exhilarating because I could suddenly see the movie." 
Now Pattinson is hoping audiences will be exhilarated, too, when The Rover opens June 20, a month after its debut at the Cannes Film Festival. "Fusing a hybrid of quasi-apocalyptic influences into a work with a pungent character of its own, The Rover suggests something like a Cormac McCarthy vision of Australia halfway between today and The Road Warrior times," wrote THR's chief film critic Todd McCarthy. 
Rover is one of two pictures that Pattinson is counting on to propel him to the next phase of his career, along with David Cronenberg's Hollywood satire Maps to the Stars, which opens in the fall. Both are art house films, both labors of love, both as different from Twilight as any picture can be, and both equally important to defining Pattinson as a grown-up. 
The actor galvanized a generation of teenagers (and their mothers) with a vampire franchise, became impossibly famous and now, at age 28, is asking, what's my second act? 
That's a question facing several of Pattinson's contemporaries, from Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson to Transformers' Shia LaBeouf, all of whom have struggled to break free of career-defining franchises at the very time so many other actors are chasing them. 
Radcliffe has had modest success in film and has turned to Broadway with acclaimed productions like The Cripple of Inishmaan; Watson remains a fashion cynosure who had little to do in Noah but next works for Guillermo del Toro in Beauty and the Beast; and LaBeouf, following some public adventures in plagiarism, revealed himself in Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac. 
Pattinson has chosen his own clear path: to work with the best directors he can find, from Cronenberg to Werner Herzog (who cast him as T.E. Lawrence in Queen of the Desert, out this year) to James Gray (for whom he'll star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in The Lost City of Z).

He isn't averse to calling the filmmakers he admires out of the blue, as he did Spring Breakers' Harmony Korine. "We went to have dinner. He was really nice. But it took me a long time to realize I could do that," says Pattinson of making cold calls to directors. Korine now is writing a script for him, shrouded in mystery. "He won't even tell me what it's about," grins Pattinson. 
Sitting over lunch May 14 at West Hollywood's Soho House, where he has arrived in his battered, black, 1989 BMW convertible, he seems remarkably unperturbed by the challenges ahead. Dressed in black pants and a white T-shirt, he's light, bright and eager to please and not remotely like the haunted character who made him famous. "I did some interview a while ago, and it sounds like I'm a manic-depressive about to kill myself," he says. "And I'm like, 'No I'm not!' " 
Nothing much troubles him -- not the sweltering heat where we sit, nor the distant acquaintances who keep interrupting to say hello, nor my endless questions about Twilight, the five-picture saga whose muscular release at times overwhelmed him. "Everything changed when they did the marketing, and the general public started to view [the films] in a different way when they started to push the 'team' aspect of it," he says of an otherwise positive experience. "It was like, 'I'm on Team Edward or Team Jacob.' That saturated everything, and suddenly there was a backlash. Whereas with the first [film], there wasn't a backlash at all." 
The backlash turned personal when Pattinson's relationship with co-star and girlfriend Kristen Stewart soured after she was caught with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, making Pattinson "a cuckolded vampire," as one blog put it. He won't talk about any of that. But are they still in contact? "Oh, yeah," he says blithely.
He largely is indifferent to money (somewhat easier when you have oodles of it) and has little of material worth beyond his collection of around 17 guitars. "I buy nice guitars, and that's about my only expense," he says, singling out "an acoustic Gibson J100 from 1943 or something."
 
He recently sold the 1922 Los Feliz mansion that he bought for $6.27 million about three years ago because he felt engulfed by its sheer size. "It was too big a house," he says. "It was incredible, like Versailles. It was absolutely, completely crazy. It had this incredible garden, but you just stay in one room, anyway. I could basically live in a cell as long as I had a window." 
Since then, he has shacked up in a rented place within a gated community in Coldwater Canyon. His decor is decidedly bare-bones: He moved in with just three inflatable mattresses and "this one kind of shitty chair that was left from the previous tenants [in Los Feliz]," he says, laughing. "I would move my mattresses into different rooms according to the occasion. It was very odd for a while." 
Since the move, he has been unable to locate many of his possessions, including some much-needed clothes. "I don't understand how I don't have any clothes," he groans. "I've basically stolen every item of clothing that anyone's ever given me for a premiere, but in my closet there's literally about three things." 
He can't even find his beloved DVD collection. A movie buff, he favors films from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest to Breathless to the recent Smashed. Still, with typical self-deprecation, he swats away any hint he's a connoisseur. "I was so into [film history] when I was a teenager; I thought it would impress people," he says. "But then you get older, and no one gives a shit." 
Cronenberg takes that with a grain of salt. "He is incredibly knowledgeable about cinema, almost academically," he says. "I remember coming across him on the set of Cosmopolis as he was talking to Juliette Binoche about obscure French films, and that surprised me. But as I got to know him better, I found he has a very European sensibility. He has a highly functioning intellect, which might be surprising given the characters he is playing." 
In the pre-Twilight era, Pattinson barely scraped together a living. He was down and out in London, sharing an apartment with actor Tom Sturridge and still licking his wounds after being fired from a production of Roland Schimmelpfennig's The Woman Before at the Royal Court Theatre. ("I don't know why I was fired. They probably said something, but I was so furious I wasn't even listening," he says.) 
He'd stumbled into acting as a teenager, drawn by the cute girls who hovered around, taking part in productions with the local Barnes Theatre Company, near his parents' home outside London. His father often was busy with his vintage-car business, leaving Pattinson with his mother and two older sisters. While manning a paper route, he got occasional work as a model (his mom was a booker for a modeling agency), then as a teenage actor he had a well-regarded small role in 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He wasn't entirely sure he wanted to act and thought for a while of going into politics in some capacity. But at age 21 he came to Los Angeles -- sleeping in the home of his WME agent, Stephanie Ritz -- to audition for the rom-com Post Grad. 
"I was so into the script of it and thought I knew exactly what I was doing," he says. "And then I went in and just completely blew it. And honestly, I remember talking to my family afterward and going, 'I'm done. I can't handle how gut-wrenching it is.' And I kind of knew that I was messing it up. It was my own fault." 
While in L.A., almost as an after-thought he auditioned for Twilight, based on the young-adult novel by Stephenie Meyer about a teenage girl who moves to a small town in Washington and falls in love with a vampire, a scion of the immortal Cullen clan. He'd done an audition tape when he was at home in London, "with Tom [Sturridge] playing Bella." After that, director Catherine Hardwicke called him at 2:30 in the morning, when they had "this ridicu­lous conversation, and I hadn't read the books or the script or anything and I just bullshitted on the phone." 
Now he went to Hardwicke's home in Venice, Calif., where he met Stewart, already cast in the lead role, for the first time. "They were doing screen tests with four people," he recalls. "In one of the scenes, I [was meant] to take my shirt off, and I think I was the one guy who didn't." 
Lionsgate wasn't immediately sold on him, and some of the producers wondered whether he was too old for the role of an eternal high-schooler (he was 21 at the time), but his agent kept pushing. "Stephanie was like, 'You've got to go and meet the producers and just shave 20 times before you go,' " he says. 
The big shave worked, and Pattinson got the part: "It was basically the last-chance saloon when I got Twilight." 
The franchise's five films changed his life, to his surprise. He'd thought this would be "like [Hardwicke's previous film] Thirteen but with vampires. I genuinely had no idea it was going to be a [blockbuster]." He says the role of Edward was unexpectedly challenging: "It was quite a constricting character, in a way. You want to make [him] as dramatic as possible, but you have someone who never loses his temper, and so it's like, 'How the f-- do you do this?' I think that was one of the hardest jobs I've ever done." 
Pattinson spent the next four years in the Twilight zone and barely has stopped working since. He hasn't had a vacation in years, partly because fame makes it hard for him to travel. "I don't think I've been anywhere other than for work," he says. "I have a fear of missing out." 
The $12 million Rover, which A24 is releasing, took him to Australia, where he faced a grueling shoot spread across five locations, including the town of Marree (population 90). It was shot "absolutely in the middle of nowhere," he says. "There's a road that goes from the east to the west of Australia, through the Outback, and we were at the point where it turns into a dirt track. It was the end of the tarmac, in this town of 90 people." 
He shot there for 41 days, living in what looked like "a shipping container with windows," in the midst of a heat wave with temperatures soaring past 100 degrees and "a trillion flies. As soon as the light came up, you'd have flies trying to crawl into your eyes the entire day." 
Despite the harshness, "There was something so [great], just being able to look for absolutely miles to the horizon," Pattinson says. "There's something really calming about it." 
A friend gave him an audiotape on meditation while he was working on Maps in Toronto, and he has stuck with it. "I'm easy with most things," he adds, noting the one exception is the paparazzi, who still hound him. He remembers being pursued for hours as he tried to avoid leading them to his home. "It was like eight cars following me. And this went on for 10 hours, this thing. I literally didn't know what to do. [But] you figure out ways to deal with it. It's been such a long time now, it just becomes what your life is. I can't even really remember what my life was like before." 
Now he says his life is defined more by being alone or hanging out with a few friends than by the trappings of celebrity.
He's "a relatively solitary person," though for a loner he's strikingly affable and equally loyal. He retains many of the friends he grew up with, the same manager (3 Arts Entertainment's Nick Frenkel) and agent (Ritz). "She still has a bag I left there [at her house]," he jokes, "probably filled with my dirty washing." 
Two days before our meeting, he celebrated his May 13 birthday with about 20 friends at the Chateau Marmont, over a dinner "that just went on way too long." He says he's still recuperating. "I've been in L.A. for five years, so I know a bunch of people here now. It was nice." 
He keeps up with some of his Twilight pals, too, and occasionally plays poker with Kellan Lutz, who's considerably better than he is, to his chagrin. "It's ridiculous!" he says. "It's like they basically just ask, 'Do you want to spend $500 to hang with us?' 'Oh, great!' " 
Such escapades aside, he admits to being somewhat ascetic and says his greatest pleasure recently was floating on an inflatable chair in a pool with a bottle of rosé. "I literally felt, 'This is absolute heaven. This is all I require out of life,' " he says. 
He's almost frighteningly normal -- an anti-star, an actor who has stumbled into celebrity despite himself, who doesn't want it or need it any more than the superfluous mansion he abandoned in Los Feliz. "He could grab that brass ring and keep doing big-budget studio movies," says Cronenberg. "But it's not his desire to be a big Hollywood star." 
Just what his desire is remains unclear. Improving himself is part of it: "I don't know if I've really particularly found my feet as an actor yet -- I have to prove certain things," he says. But beyond that, he's that rarest of creatures, a young man who seems largely content. "I have extremely simple desires. I don't need anything. I don't want anything at all."
