Wow, how times have changed!
Just imagining depressed chiseled-cheekbones makes US depressed!
But unfortunately, it's true. Robert Pattinson has admitted to enduring a two-year depression. When Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were breaking away to work on other films, Rob felt so alone creatively.
"I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25, I couldn't go where I wanted to go, I was in the tabloids every day and I didn't have access to the roles I really wanted. I wanted more, on every level. I finally realized that you needed to earn this change I so desperately wanted. That one way or another, you had to suffer to be able to make it. I thought everything was going to be served on a plate but that's not how it works."
"When David Cronenberg offered Cosmopolis to me, I never read anything as interesting for years. I saw Kristen leave to film Snow White and the Huntsman, Taylor was also doing his thing on the side, and I was just going in circles, asking myself if I was going to take a break and go back to music. Then one day David called and I went crazy."
But of course, right after the Cannes premiere of Cosmopolis, girlfriend KStew was caught cheating with her married Snow White director.
And as we all know, Rob seemed to plummet right back into that black hole of sadness. Whomp whomp!
They're back together now though — as coy as KStew might be when asked about it. And a matched-up Rob is a happy Rob!
So now he's looking forward to his final Twilight Saga hurrah! Even though it's all about to be over, Robberz is proud of the work accomplished, saying:
"Twilight managed to unite an audience that was unknown until now and one that studios didn't know how to capitalize on. The saga opened a road that can be fun to explore. I'm sure there's smart ways of recreating that feeling that drew fans to Twilight in other people. I'm thinking about it right now, it's my audience after all!"
But we know he has a long career ahead of him full of Cosmopolis-like films if he keeps working at his craft! We mean, honestly, as long as he's trying, we're not too worried for him.
