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
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.”
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!
Shailene Woodley isn’t the only homeless Hollywood star.
The Rover’s Robert Pattinson revealed that he too is without a home on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!. “Last time you were here, you told me your living arrangements were a little bit shaky. You said you were living under an archway next to some garbage cans,” Jimmy Kimmel said. “Is that still the case?””I wish,” the 28-year-old British actor said, laughing. “It’s gone way downhill!” According to Pattinson, “My parents borrowed my house, which I was borrowing from someone else. They kicked me out of it when I got back from [filming a movie in] Toronto. That’s the end of that. So I’m now homeless again.”
Set in a lawless Australian outback 10 years after a devastating economic collapse, The Rover stars Guy Pearce as an embittered Aussie who has lost his family and Robert Pattinson as an American too young to remember a time before everything went to Hell. The second feature from David Michôd — director of 2010?s acclaimed, Pearce-starring gangster-thriller Animal Kingdom — debuts in New York and Los Angeles on June 13 and goes nationwide the following week.

Fun? Check. Fearless? Check. Cosmo girl? Double check.
Demi Lovato snagged the title of Cosmopolitan for Latinas’ Fun Fearless Latina of the Year Award in NYC last night. The Mexican songstress opened up to E! News exclusively about her half-shaved head stunt back in March and her latest hair color du jour. The 21-year-old wore a black and yellow Fausto Puglisi skater dress at the award ceremony, pining back her freshly dyed tresses in a messy updo. Just hours before the red carpet, the “Heart Attack” singer debuted the latest installment to her Crayola crown inspired hair colors (which took hours to complete by the way) on Twitter.
