PREMIERE FRANCE: Robert Pattinson Makes the Special Cannes Edition Cover – for second time; Interview PREVIEW

This is the second time Robert Pattinson graces the cover of Premiere France’s Cannes special issue. Love seeing both of his films, Maps To The Stars and The Rover prominent at top right. Fantastic.

@PremiereFR Robert Pattinson metamorphosis! Cannes special issue will be on sale from next Wednesday!

From Premiere France, an overview of the interview and photoshoot (added 5/3/14):

“In two movies selected at Cannes – The Rover and Maps To The Stars – Robert Pattinson is on the cover of Première.


That’s it, Robert Pattinson has definitely moved a gear and left Twilight behind him. He will appear in two highly anticipated movies at 2014 Cannes Film Festival: The Rover, a post-apocalytic hyper violent, brutal and uncompromising western, and Maps To The Stars, his second collaboration with David Cronenberg after the watershed Cosmopolis, a family psycho drama that dissects Hollywood. It’s the ideal opportunity to put him on the cover of the next issue of Première, with its special report providing an update on all movies and events happening on the Croisette in 2014.


And it’s also the opportunity to interview Robert from every conceivable angle: he talks about the secrets of the shooting of his sex scene with Julianne Moore in Maps To The Stars (‘I was breathless, totally soaked … And she, not at all’), the hyper intense filming of The Rover (‘an avid movie’) in the middle of the Australian desert, what Cannes represents for him, directors James Gray and Romain Gavras … And especially, as shown by our cover, the opportunity to discover the former Edward Cullen as no one has ever seen him in a photoshoot … colorful, lets admit it. See the proof on the picture.”   Source: Premiere France  Translation thanks to MapsToTheStarsFrance


Premiere France Special Issue with Pattinson in 2012:

Here’s what we saw two years ago when Robert was there for his first film in competition for the Palme d’Or, Cosmopolis. This year he has Maps To The Stars in competition and The Rover (news covered at lookingformorefilmblog) with a prestigious midnight screening (official selection, out of competition.)

In 2012, Premiere France gave us an interview and photoshoot. To revisit that, here’s links to posts I made on that special Cannes issue at

Note Robert Pattinson’s interview appeared with a great photoshoot that was an homage to past David Cronenberg films. For outtakes made available by the photographer (very similar to the printed)- see our post HERE. Also, Premiere did post online the cover and their comments on how the homage idea came from Robert Pattinson, see that post HERE. Nice words for the actor here.
