The world will be a much better place if paparazzi aimed their lenses on billionaires and bankers, claimed "Cosmopolis" star Robert Pattinson in an interview.
That is, instead on celebrities like him and his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart.
In the wake of his appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Robert Pattinson has apparently gone on vacation with one of his acting idols, Leonardo DiCaprio. Pattinson is also said to be getting ready to spend "millions" on a makeover to help put estranged girlfriend Kristen Stewart behind him.
Pattinson is still reeling from the heartbreak undeservedly brought on by Kristen Stewart cheating on him with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders.
Interestingly, Kristen's liaison with Sanders, a married man, was exposed by a paparazzi. The photos of the two cuddling were snapped away and landed on the US Weekly magazine. It eventually resulted to the highly-publicized break up with Pattinson, who first moved out and changed his cellphone number.
"As soon as people look at something very closely, the whole thing just crumbles," Pattinson added in the interview with Jessica Winter for Time.
It may seem like he's hinting on some feelings on the break up but he's actually talking about the subject of his film. But it does parallel what he jokingly told Jon Stewart in an interview, that when break up happens, it seems like the end of the world.
In the critically acclaimed "Cosmopolis," Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a billionaire who goes amok after losing massively in a currency trade. In the movie, Pattinson acts out a difficult prostate exam and some sex scenes, too. It also stars Paul Giamatti and Juliette Binoche as Eric's art consultant with whom Pattinson's character have an affair.
In hindsight, it seems like Pattinson is quite the fitting choice for the role as he and his character both know what it's like to see your world crumble before you. His performance in the film has garnered early rave reviews from critics.
"Pattinson's excellent performance reps an indispensable asset," wrote Justin Chang for Variety.
"At its heart is a sensational central performance from Robert Pattinson – yes, that Robert Pattinson – as Packer," praised Robbin Collin of The Telegraph, with a hint of pleasurable surprise over Pattinson's turn.
