Robert Pattinson Gets Weird in David Cronenberg Inspired Photos

May 10, 2012

Robert Pattinson - David Cronenberg Photoshoot

For years I've been quite the proponent of Robert Pattinson's acting career outside of The Twilight Saga, and mark my words, when all is said and done, we'll have a solid young actor on our hands, and even the teen girls won't like the movies he's going to start making. That's how it looks with David Cronenberg's stylish thriller Cosmopolis and forthcoming flicks like Mission: Blacklist. Keeping up with his artistic roots and darker Cronenberg style interests, Pattinson recently did a strange photoshoot for Premiere in France (via paying tribute to earlier films like Videodrome, Scanners and Dead Ringers. Look!

Here are some of the photos from Premiere's spead and you can see the rest at

In a rough translation from the magazine, Premiere says Pattinson was very hands-on with the 13-hour photoshoot and even though these photos being so strange and twisted are a direct result of the actor's influence on the project. Apparently the actor was a bit disappointed that the initial plans for the shoot weren't more daring and he wanted to push the limits even further. That's a brave move for someone who has ridden a wave to fame on a safe, teenage favorite franchise, but that's what I like to hear. The result are these disturbing and peculiar photos that feel like Cronenberg almost shot them himself. Cool, right?

        It's funny that haters follow Pattinson's thread and his fans' comments.Your ''investigation'' is false,this is my first and the latest comment not even about Premiere photoshoot,but about author.

    That's right Robert, you can legitimize your career not through being a talented actor who picks challenging and thought provoking projects, but by modeling in pictures aping projects and people who have achieved those thing! Who knew it was so easy? If you will all excuse me, I'm off to take some pictures of myself as Daniel Day Lewis in There Will Be Blood.
