INTERVIEW: Robert Pattinson & John Cusack with Dorkshelf – TIFF 2014 VIDEO

Interview: VIDEO Robert Pattinson Video

An interview with Robert Pattinson and John Cusack by Dork Shelf. I took some notes for you below.

My notes for you:

Pattinson: Rob’s felt that he’s met a lot of actors like Julianne’s character.
Pattinson: said his character Jerome was quite blank on the page, a cipher, he needed to see how other cast were doing things. But it’s exciting [coming into a role] that way at the same time.

David Cronenberg is speaking to 680News (@680News) about Maps To The Stars in this audio interview.

Another interview done at TIFF, this with Moviefone.

Again (earlier post today, another interview) Rob is asked, as John Cusack has been, too, about child actors in Hollywood and does Maps To the Stars show Hollywood in an accurate light.  He says he’s not sure he’s qualified to answer about Hollywood- he’s not even sure what Hollywood is- as he sort of fell into it.
