Looks like we’re not the only ones with Pattinson fever (yes, we’re convinced it’s a real thing)! Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg has a tight loving grip on Robert Pattinson and now Woody Allen is gushing about how he would love to work with the Twi-star! At the NYC premier of Woody’s new film To Rome With Love, he told HollywoodLife.com that he “wouldn’t hesitate” to work with R-Patz. He thinks that Pattinson is “a wonderful actor. I’ve seen him act and interviewed on television. I find him charming and amusing and if I ever had anything he was right for I wouldn’t hesitate for a second!”
What an amazing compliment from one of Hollywood’s biggest directors. As if we didn’t think Pattinson was going to make it, he’s got both Woody and Cronenberg hooked and wanting to bring him even higher than vampire fan worship. During a recent Q & A at a London Apple Store, Cronenberg said he chose Pattinson to be in Cosmopolis because he ” just thought it would be wonderful to hear this dialogue spoken by wonderful actors, and I stumbled accidentally across Rob.” And of course, he fell victim to the old Pattinson charm. “The charisma that he has is obvious and is necessary for this film as his character is in absolutely every scene,” Cronenberg continued. “You have to have someone who has the chops, and is interesting and charismatic.”
Wow, our Twilight boy has a bright future ahead of him and we seriously can’t wait to see what’s next!
