Robert Pattinson’s film Cosmopolis premiered at the 65th Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 25). He posed throughout the day with director David Cronenberg and co-stars Juliette Binoche and Sarah Gadon.
Even for this high profile actor he believes what he sees on the internet. USA Today reports Pattinson was curious about the recent rumors that he was going to be cast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
He says on Saturday, “I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games. I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent. My agent was like, ‘No,’ ”
He added, “(My agent) was like no one’s going to offer you that part. I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”
Cosmopolis received a standing ovation at the screening. However Pattinson said Cronenberg had warned him of the possible audience reaction.
“David tells me the night before, ‘I’m fully expecting some boos,’ ” says Pattinson. “I was literally like, ‘Why are you telling me this?’ ”
“I literally didn’t watch one second of the movie, I was waiting for people to walk out. I was expecting a fight. It took a full three hours of continued panic. Full adrenaline. It was just too weird.”
