He’s the 28-year-old British actor who has survived trial by fire – the Twilight phenomenon, tabloid hysteria – to become one of our most promising leading men. Over the next few months, you’ll see him deliver top-drawer performances in movies by David Cronenberg, Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. First, The Rover, this summer’s must-see film. To celebrate, Esquire’s man in LA invited September’s cover star over for beers and a barbecue
He doesn’t seem the nervous type, Robert Pattinson. He always looks so calm, in the face of all those screaming girls. But there are times when he gets very anxious indeed, and the heart quickens and the behaviour changes. And when he does, he lies, he just makes stuff up. Or at least that’s what he told US late-night chat-show host Jimmy Kimmel recently, when he was a guest on the show to promote his latest movie, The Rover.
Taylor Lautner sports two very different looks in the trailer for his upcoming show Cuckoo!
The 22-year-old actor first appears in the trailer as a crazy, disheveled, and bearded man who seems to alarm the family members that don’t recognize him.
Taylor is replacing Andy Samberg for the second season of the show and will be playing a brand new character that is being billed as “just as cuckoo.”
Cuckoo will air in the UK on BBC Three starting on August 7 at 10pm.
It’s not easy being Greene. “I’m constantly losing my keys in my purse,” confesses Twilight alum Ashley Greene, 27. “The other day the valet was like, ‘Um, miss, we can’t move your car,’ and I started digging frantically,” the costar of Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here (out July 18) admits to Us Weekly. What items did the actress, who dates Australian TV personality Paul Khoury, find while rifling through her Bulgari satchel?
The Queen of Clean
“I constantly eat in my car, so I keep Oral-B Glide floss with me. And I won’t leave my house without Dove deodorant or the Honest Company’s hand sanitizer. I shake a lot of hands!”
Ever wondered what Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway would look like in drag? Us either.
Regardless, the two actresses (plus peer Brie Larson) dressed up like dudes for pal Jenny Lewis’ “Just One of the Guys” music video. The song serves as the first track from The Voyager, the indie singer-songwriter’s first solo album in six years. Lewis calls the compilation “the hardest one” she’s ever made.
What was it like shooting the music video? “We screamed with laughter all day, huddled behind the monitor,” Lewis tells GQ. “I haven’t laughed that hard since What About Bob? came out on laser disk.”
Legend of Hercules star Kellan Lutz, Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin and Orange Is the New Black actress Taryn Manning have joined the cast of Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter.
Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder are starring in in the indie drama, which tells of famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram.
Milgram was the man who, in 1961, designed the controversial Obedience Experiments at Yale University, which observed the responses of ordinary people who believed they were sending harmful electrical shocks to an affable stranger.
Lutz will play actor William Shatner, who played Milgram in a ’70s TV movie. Yelchin plays Rensaleer, a man who resists the authority. Manning plays Mrs. Lowe, a test subject who is distressed by the process and pushes back.

Robert Pattinson is tired.
The 28-year-old has spent the better part of the last month doing press for David Michôd’s “The Rover,” a slow-burn thriller that’s caked in equal parts dirt, dried blood and nihilism. Pattinson has appeared on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter. He’s done interviews with BuzzFeed, The Daily Beast, Indiewire, Jimmy Kimmel and, now, The Huffington Post. “It was good in theory,” Pattinson said of the press gauntlet, before trailing off.
Fortunately, the performance Pattinson is promoting is one of his best yet. He plays Rey in “The Rover,” a simple-minded criminal who gets left for dead by his brother in post-apocalyptic Australia and then goes on a journey of revenge with Eric (Guy Pearce), a man also wronged by Rey’s sibling.
Now playing in limited release is writer/director David Michôd’s thriller The Rover. The film stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson and takes place 10 years after the collapse of society, revolving around a man who sets out to reclaim his last possession from a gang. The pic is based on an original idea by Michôd and Joel Edgerton and marks Michôd’s long-awaited follow-up to his well-received 2010 feature debut Animal Kingdom. For more on the film, watch the trailer or read Matt’s review.
