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.”
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.

At the Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Robert Pattinson, Guy Pearce and David Michod. They talked about working together to create the characters, the challenging filming conditions, what it was like on set, and more.
Robert Pattinson, Guy Pearce and Director David Michod:
-How did they work together to establish the characters?
-The challenging conditions for filming the movie.
-What was it like between takes?
found video of the rest of the interview of Robert on Seth Myers…
sorry for the russian subtitles, this was the only full version of the interview i could find
Actors don’t often get the chance to revisit a character they played almost a decade ago, but that’s just what Kellan Lutz is doing on The Comeback, which is returning to HBO this fall – nine years after it last aired.
It’s given Lutz the chance to look back on what’s happened in his life since he got his big break playing actor Chris MacNess in 2005, and he says he sees some similarities in their journeys.
“He’s matured quite a bit. Much like myself, when I started in this industry I was just like a little puppy. I was really passionate about it and had no idea what I was doing,” Lutz told PEOPLE Monday at the Fragrance Foundation Awards in N.Y.C. “But throughout experience and years of working, you really start to feel really comfortable and I’ve been doing it a long time now and I’ve really appreciated it.”
Before he hit it big with his Twilight role, Robert Pattinson spilled to Seth Meyers on Tuesday’s Late Night that he once had aspirations to become a rapper –and his hip-hop name is what Meyers calls “some real, hardcore sh**.”
Confirming the reports that he once wanted to drop rhymes, Pattinson tells the host, “100 per cent. I still kind of do [want to be a rapper]. I was Big Tub, that was my rap name.”
Explaining his alter ego, he adds, “I was very paranoid about my weight. I got quite sick in the last couple of days and I’m so excited about it. Next week I’m going to be so skinny!”
The 28-year-old actor was a bit more serious than expected about having a rap career. He even recorded! “I didn’t know how to scratch so I used to pull up and down the zip on my hoodie and record it,” Pattinson admitted. “It sounds exactly like it! [We were] Big Tub and the Tabby Cats.”
Does Magic Mike XXL need some extra meat? Because Robert Pattinson might be able to kill two birds with one stone…
Asked on Good Morning America today what he meant by a recent comment about wanting to have a career like the one enjoyed by Guy Pearce, his costar in The Rover, the cheeky British actor was ready with a cheeky response.
“I was talking about a side career as a male stripper,” he laughed.
Talk about your L.A.-confidential information. (Which of course was just a joke, one that Pearce seemed to heartily enjoy.)
Robert Pattinson didn’t need a dialect coach to master his Southern twang for The Rover—he just turned to reality TV!
The 27-year-old British actor joked that he watched Swamp Wars to prepare for the role, telling E! News of his movie accent, “That actually might be where it came from!”
Really, though, the former Twilight hunk “was just kind of hoping” he was speaking accurately. “I was with a bunch of Australians,” he said, “and would ask, ‘Does this sound Southern?’”
Rob, Guy Pearce, director David Michod and the rest of The Rover cast and crew actually filmed in a remote, desert-like part of Australia. One less than glamorous aspect of shooting? Flies everywhere!
Don’t look for Robert Pattinson to play a future Han Solo or Indiana Jones.
The Twilight star, 28, shot down any rumors Thursday as he walked the red carpet in Los Angeles at the Regency Bruin Theatre for the U.S. premiere of his latest film, The Rover.
“I don’t know why. Why is that coming out?” he said of speculation he could play a future Indy. “I honestly don’t understand what it’s all about. Man, I wish!”
He was equally clueless about a reports that he was set to take on a younger version of the character Harrison Ford made famous in Star Wars.
