Talk about a big break. In the past few hours Sarah Gadon has gone from “who?” to “you know, the girl playing Robert Pattinson‘s estranged wife in Cosmopolis.” Not only is it every actor’s dream to be cast alongside the hottest living human – it’s every person with a libido’s dream. Lucky! The movie details 24 hours in the life of billionaire businessman Eric Packer, played by Pattinson, in which he rides around in a limousine, nails a lot of women, and tries to outwit men who are after him after he scams his clients out of their savings. Did we mention he has a lot of sex?
Gadon may be a relative unknown, but she’s been acting for years. A native of Canada, the almost 24-year-old has appeared on such shows there as Being Erica and The Border and done voice-over work for cartoons. Perhaps her best known work to date is in Are You Afraid of the Dark?, a Canadian show which aired on Nickelodeon, beloved by every kid alive in the 90s. She’s also previously worked with Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg on the film A Dangerous Method. We’re into Sarah solely because she had a role in Charlie Bartlett and was in a movie about the Manson family. Dark and dark!
Clearly Sarah has the resume to play the part, but will she be able to handle all the gossip, rumors and fans that comes along with working with Rob? As much as we’d like to think the insanity surrounding him will subside after Breaking Dawn (clearly, he is hoping for this too), we doubt that will happen – especially when he keeps making movies with so many hot sex scenes (hello…Remember Me, Bel Ami, Water for Elephants). Have we mentioned the sex yet? Have we? We have? Oops.
