Fan Report from WFE Set (July 30th)

We got there at like 3pm and there was a medium sized crowd. I can not explain to you how OUT IN THE COUNTRY this is. its just…wayyyyy out. So, we get there, pass an ice cream truck (smartest man in the county-he made a killing) about ten minutes in he drives past us, past the cops and to the gate where they let the truck in. It goes all the way inside.

It comes back out about 20 minutes or so later and 2 of my friends go up to it and ask what happened. He said similar to above: that he was not allowed to get out of the truck or take photos. He asked for Rob to sign his truck but they said no (not sure if Rob said no or “they” said no but he said “they”) then he said everyone came out to get ice cream and Rob got vanilla.

We were able to watch several scenes being filmed, including a couple with old fashioned cars (Model T types) and several with him and his family. We would kinda be like, “is that him?” (we were using binoculars) but the minute he came into view it was like, “OOOOO duh, THERE he is,” because he is HUGE and his shoulders are so wide and his head is a f*cking giant square. He’s impossible to miss.

Fans didn't meet Rob today in Chickamauga.The ice cream man did!

CHICKAMAUGA, GA (WRCB) - Their reasons for adoring Robert Pattinson may vary, but they're all here for the same reason, in hopes of the chance to lay their eyes on the Twilight Saga star.

"I just think he looks cute," Saddler Emory says.

"I love his eyes, they are gorgeous," Destiny Johnson adds.

"We're just hoping to get a glimpse or if he'd say thanks for coming or just wanted an autograph,"Samantha Johnson says.

It surely wasn't for a lack of enthusiasm or patience. Some of these folks have been here since the wee hours of the morning. The storyline here is he filmed and snuck right out, under the noses of all these crooning ladies.

Johnson says she was disappointed, but not giving up. She adds, "People were crying. One lady was furious."

Wait till she hears this, of all the hearts that were melting here Friday, guess who met him? The ice cream man.

"He's real nice, a normal person to me," Tony Gross says.

So the ice cream man made it to the set. And while we can't show you a shot of the star with his fans on Friday night. We can tell you what ice cream he picked.

"Vanilla big dipper," Gross says.

A Vanilla Big Dipper is similar to a sundae cone, some call it a nutty buddy.source

'Remember Me' Review by BritFilms.TV

Robert Pattinson can act. This is coming from a person who doesn’t necessarily detest the ‘Twilight’ franchise but simply thinks that the world wouldn’t be at a massive loss if it was without it, because to be honest it’d give the heartthrob at the centre of it more of a chance to stretch his skill in films like this.

A tale of love and loss (and no bloody vampires for a change!), the great and all powerful Pattinson plays rebellious son and tortured soul, Tyler Hawkins. Distant from his father (Pierce Brosnan), mourning a brother and caring for a sister, the lad is an emotional wreck who is eventually tamed by kindred spirit and just as screwed up Ally (Emilie De Ravin) who has Daddy issues of her own in the form of (Chris Cooper). Both with fathers they can’t connect with and missing a family member they can’t bring back the two lend a helping hand in each other’s lives before hitting the predictable rocky patch and recovering from it.

‘Remember Me’ is refreshing for a number of reasons. Firstly it gives the aforementioned lad from those ‘Twilight’ films a chance to prove he can do more than just look cold, grey and constipated opposite Kristen Stewart. With ‘Remember Me’ he’s a troubled youth on the road to ruin, stretching past the tree climbing, vampire pouting he’s now attached to, here we have him butting heads with Brosnan’s well delivered father figure, cracking jokes with his best mate and gelling perfectly with a love interest that unlike Bella the Bore actually reacts.

This is as much Ravin’s film as it is Pattinson and she shines just as brightly. Ally is as wild and fiery as her new beau carrying half the weight of the film that has a gut punch of an ending on its back, that only after viewing a second time echoes through the story and the characters involved, making it feel more than a cheap shock that some might see it as.

‘Remember Me’ is a film that is all about acceptance and moving on orchestrated by two strong leads at its centre. My only hope is that one of them manages to shake off the franchise they’re so cemented in once it’s all done and continue to surprise us like he has with this. source

Chris Cooper talks about Rob

He portrays a detective in his new film Remember Me, co-starring teenage heart-throb Robert Pattinson.

"He's a very sweet young man," he said of the Twilight star. "He's up against the kind of notoriety that's monstrous at that age. I don't know how he handles it."source

Rob's WFE arrives in Chickamauga

 CHICKAMAUGA, GA (WRCB) - It was an early wake-up call for dozens of fans as they waited outside an old farm house in Northwest Georgia for a glimpse of actor Robert Pattinson. Many of them got that glimpse too. Channel 3 Eyewitness News was the only television crew on scene as Pattinson walked around in a hoodie.

Pattinson is in town to film opening and closing scenes for the movie Water for Elephants. He will likely only be here for one day but there is a possibility his stay continues into Saturday.

West Cove Road is now blocked. Security is tight around the movie set. Dozens of young females were removed from the property without incident as they got too close.

The film crew started their day with breakfast around 6:30 a.m. and began shooting soon after 7:00 a.m.

Rob talks about Remember Me and fame with Glamour UK

Q: What made you say yes to Remember Me; you are in the position to say yes or no to a director to choose which movie you want to be in or which movie you don't want to be in?
A: Kind of. You get certain offers and stuff, but with this, it was before Twilight came out, and I read the script and I wanted to do another job before Twilight came out. I didn't end up doing one, but that was one of the things I read. So with this, usually every single young guy who is a lead is often such a stock character. But Tyler wasn't really coming from an obvious place and wasn't ending up in an obvious place either, so it gave you much more to work with, and it could be more of a character piece. There are certain things about generic films where you have to do certain things and perform in a certain way, and it doesn't really make sense. I think that's why this is kind of a little bit weird in that respect, it doesn't really fit what you'd expect from this kind of drama.

Q: With Remember Me, were there certain aspects of the character you could empathize with? He's a guy who likes to do his own thing…
A: Yeah, in a lot of ways, I saw right from the beginning that he was quite similar to me, and I kind of tried to tailor it to be even more similar, but then the more I tailored it, the more it became a fictional creation. But yeah, I've been saying there's a kind of moment where, I think it's the end of the adolescent period, where you think that you have to be an individual so much and you want to stamp your identity on everything. I mean, you get to your early 20s and you are much more accepting of being part of the world, and not wanting to drive everything away from you all the time, and I kind of had that when I was in my early 20s.

Q: Would you ever stand up for yourself to the point where you are going to fight with authority, like the character?
A: I know, that's what one of the main things I liked about it; there are certain things which are like fantasy scenes of mine. It was quite satisfying, even the way he fights. It was all in the script, it said he fights like a pitbull, and I was just like, 'Yeah, I want to fight like a pitbull!'

Q: Were you at all intimidated by Pierce Brosnan in real life?
A: I went to meet him for dinner just before we started shooting, and he's a really nice guy. He's kind of suave and he does look exactly the same all the time. He has great posture. He does this funny thing when we're out at a restaurant and there are people looking over at him, and it's a kind of posh French restaurant so there are a lot of older, banker type looking people and they obviously had no idea who I was, and they were obviously just looking at him and making a little joke or whatever, and he goes up to their table and introduces himself to everybody at that table, and you can see that they all really like him - I don't know what he said. He was introducing me as his son to people. (laughter)

Q: Did this role feel very different from the other roles that you have played?
A: Yeah, definitely, there's certain things about it; you can improvise quite a lot more, especially in comparison to the Twilight films. The whole point of the Twilight films is that there are so many hindrances as to what you can do, whereas with Tyler, it's kind of, it's the first time I played somebody who is just the kind of normal guy, without anything fancy, or without a period element, or without some kind of social inadequacy. He is literally just a normal guy, with no specific handicaps, and it was fun.

Q: How did you regard Tyler's relationship with Caroline; they kind of need each other, don't they?
A: Yeah, but it's like, at the same time, she's the kind of key or something. It's not like they're going to meet up and everything changes in their lives or whatever. It's not saying people's lives completely change, just having a couple of days of happiness, or a couple of minutes of happiness, can literally turn around your entire life, and you just have to be aware of it, you just have to make them sort of see things just a little bit more.

Q: When will you shoot the last Twilight movie?
A: I think I'm going to have to do "Breaking Dawn" at the end of this year, so I'm not sure when.

Q: What's your best disguise in order to be able to walk down Oxford Street?
A: Biting your nails works quite well! Actually, I was in HMV on Oxford Street on Christmas Eve buying Christmas presents, and not a single person noticed. And here were posters [Twilight and New Moon] everywhere! It's been years since I've done anything like that, and I think people just aren't looking in the same way in London.

Q: How do you deal with fame?
A: I just try to keep working. Even ten years ago, Leonardo DiCaprio always talked about being able to take a break away from everything, but I don't think you can do that anymore. I think you need to capitalize and steer your career at the same time, because I think that, especially with a thing like Twilight, where it is literally such a huge universe…

Q: Is it a burden to you, but it opens doors?
A: It opens doors and it closes others, like anything does. You can say, 'Oh if I was still unknown, then no one would judge me', but at the same time, nobody would give a shit either (laughter). It's a weird little balance. And most of the time, you are just completely guessing what you should do, so I guess I'm just doing scripts that I think are good.

Q: Did the Twilight fans make shooting Remember Me in New York quite difficult?
A: The fan situation, completely, honestly, they were lovely. They would completely respond to people saying - "Please go and wait over there or something", even when there were tons and tons of them, but it was like the paparazzi who were unbelievable. They were like jackals.

Q: You said that you never asked a girl on a date like Tyler does. Is that more difficult now you're famous?
A: Yeah, I would imagine. I'm much more self conscious now because you can't afford to like fail. You're kind of afraid of succeeding too so you just kind of, you know, anyway you look at it…

Q: In what ways has this success changed things for you?
A: It changed more in America. I always thought it was going to be like this. I came out last Christmas and it was kind of… it was all pretty low key again and I always thought it would've changed by now in London but it hasn't really. People just don't look for the same stuff, but in America, I guess it is different.source
