Robert Pattinson is highest earning British star of 2010

Article about the Vanity Fair – Hollywood’s Top 40 list

 

The phenomenal success of the “Twilight” films in which he plays a lovestruck vampire has helped him be named as highest earning British star of 2010.

Pattinson earned £18.3m last year to put him at 15th place on the annual Vanity Fair top performers list.

He beat more established stars such as Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston and Nicholas Cage to make the list for the first time.

According to a breakdown of his earnings by the magazine for its Oscar’s edition the bulk of the 24 year old’s money came from the latest Twilight film “Breaking Dawn” which has been filmed in two parts.

The actor, who began his film career in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” six years ago, was paid £8.3m for each of the films.

He also picked up a £1m payday for his next film “Water for Elephants” where he stars alongside Reese Witherspoon and £600,000 for starring in an forthcoming costume drama “Bel Ami”.

Pattinson, who has millions of female fans from playing Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga, replaces another young British actor on the annual list compiled by Vanity Fair.

Last year Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was named as the sixth highest earner with £27m thanks to the final two films in the hugely successful franchise.

Pattinson’s co-stars in Twilight all feature in the top performers list with Kristen Stewart, 20, earning £19m and Taylor Lautner ninth on the list with £22.5.

Robert Pattinson's Magazine Covers By the Numbers


Reality Check on  Rob’s Details cover:The best-selling issue from the Jan/Jun 2010 rate base period, this sexy cover sold 67,000 copies…33% more than their overall average for the statement. It also sold 14% more copies than the same time slot in 2009. I’m sure the 10th Anniversary sky bar didn’t hurt the sale either.

According to ASME (American Society of Magazine Editors) copy, “Details wanted to, in the words of photographer Norman Jean Roy, transform Pattinson from “teen-idol vampire boy into a more adult version of himself.” To achieve that, creative director Rockwe

ll Harwood decided to rent a gothic mansion outside of Los Angeles, hire several female models who were willing to spend an entire day naked and dress a 23-year-old British heartthrob in high-end designer clothing.”

This dreamy December 2009 cover sold 405,000 copies, which will make any circulator’s heart start racing. According to ABC statistics, the average for the Jul/Dec 2009 period was 421,833, making this cover the second worst of their rate base period…4% below average. However, it sold a lot more than the December 2008 cover…27% more copies in fact…which featured a steamy Kate Winslet. I’m guessing Vanity Fair is quite happy with their Vampire cover’s performance. Big Sales.

You are cur rently the most excit ing and pop u lar boy in the world!I try to some how to deal with, but I can’t. You become a lit tle para noid, but to be hon est it’s fan tas tic. I now have the oppor tu nity to make the movies that I want to make.That’s right. Because of the Twi light saga I’m always in the media. They con stantly ask me if I am not afraid that I’ll be ‘type-casted’. But I’m not afraid at all. Actu ally, it’s all about money. That’s how you will be ‘graded’. And if that fails, or if you want to do some thing else, like play ing small roles in smaller films, you will be ignored and for got ten. There is appar ently only one or the other extreme.Yes, I could. But I might not be in front of a cam era for ten years because I can’t find good roles. If you’re offered a role in an inde pen dent film, one you really want to play, there’s a chance that this movie will never be made because of finan cial rea sons. And that’s too bad!Noth ing spe cial would hurt me. I did not like the way New Moon was hyped. It was not about the movie, but about the brand. Chris Weitz is a fab u lous direc tor, I liked the film very much. That’s why I didn’t like that. I’ve been very lucky that I could play in this film.I remem ber read ing some where that I was preg nant. It was a story in a mag a zine. I think it was even on the front page.Noth ing. When I was in Lon don recently, I could do nor mal things, no one rec og nized me.Prob a bly.I wanted to go to an audi tion, with out every one instantly rec og niz ing me.I love Marc Jacobs. Actu ally I wear some thing from him at every pre miere. I believe that those are the only suits that actu ally fit me and look good on me. I also like cool and com fort able clothes. Prefer ably second-hand. I go to second-hand stores to buy new clothes. Funny, huh?Out side the United States it’s almost nonex is tent. But if I’m in the U.S., I can barely move freely. Every step is watched closely by mag a zines and com mented and there are paparazzi every where. I can’t even use the reg u lar door when I go to a pub or restaurant.What do you do when you’re in London?I’ve hardly been there in the last three years. I used to live in Soho. Much has changed. It seems they have closed all the places I liked at once — the shops, restau rants and cafes …I wasn’t scared, the entire city was taken over by Twi light fans and I had to take my shirt off dur ing film­ing. That made me inse cure and it was painful! After all, every one was watching.I admire Joaquin Phoenix and Ryan GoslingAlthough I became more self-confident and famous, it’s not eas ier! On the one hand, I am afraid to suc­ceed with a girl on the other hand, I am afraid to get rejected. It’s crazy really.Yes, I per formed three to four times a week live before Twi light! Unfor tu nately I have no time for that anymore.I love YouTube! I’m addicted to it!

Shia LeBeouf Mentions Robert Pattinson in JOE Interview for 'Wall Street'

JOE:  How are you dealing with the whole celebrity status? You’ve got the fame and money. You’re dating hot British actress Carey Mulligan who you met on the set of Wall Street. You’ve got girls falling at your feet. You must be lapping it up…

Shia:  As long as I stay famous for my work, it’s all good.  If I mess up then I am famous for my mess up.  I am the first one to admit that it makes great news when you hear that Robert Pattinson robs a bank.  Vampire robs a bank.  That’s fun.  I am 23.  I am a normal guy.  I never walked into this to be Brad Pitt.  The goal for me is to work with the best.  And I am fortunate beyond belief.  I’m not ready to mess it up for a drink.  Do you know what I mean?

WFE Extra Tommy Lukasewicz talks about Robert Pattinson

Actor Tommy Lukasewicz shared his story with Water for Ele­phants Film. Here’s a short clip from the inter­view where he men­tions Rob:

The cast on this film was A+. The young man we all know from the Twi­light series, Robert Pat­tin­son was spot on dur­ing every sin­gle emo­tion that was cap­tured on cam­era. He is a truly tal­ented indi­vid­ual and an all around nice guy. The man we all know from his inspir­ing role in Inglou­ri­ous Bas­terds, Christoph Waltz was noth­ing shy of inhu­man when he was act­ing, man this guy is incred­i­ble. I found myself gaz­ing at the beau­ti­ful, Reese With­er­spoon from time to time, whose work was some­thing of per­fec­tion in every glance. The role of Kinko, played by Mark Povinelli couldn’t have been played by a kinder, more good-hearted per­son. The sleeper in this film is a most inter­est­ing man named Jim Nor­ton, who played the role of Camel. I have a feel­ing when the film comes out peo­ple are going to really enjoy his per­for­mance. I’d have to say that with a pack­age of actors like this how can this film not break boundaries.

Leonardo DiCaprio's Advice to Rob

You have struggled for years to get rid of the reputation of teen idol. Do you have any suggestion for Robert Pattinson? The Twilightmania seems similar to the Titanic one…

RPattz (he pronounces it just like this, like his fans do) just has to keep on working hard. An actor must always be thankful when proposals come, it’s like winning the lottery every time. You must maintain the result, of course, but you must also seize opportunities to grow. But Robert already knows these things.

#6 Robert Pattinson


“I don’t want to look trendy, so I try to find clothes where somebody wouldn’t be able to say, ‘Oh, you’re a cool guy.’

Robert Pattinson, known for his role as Edward Cullen; is more than just an attractive vampire, yes I admit I was one of those girls who fell for Robert’s grungy chic style and was totally on the Edward Cullen band wagon for awhile myself. He has been labelled as a heart-throb for young teen girls with sex appeal for the older women since filming the Twilight series; status symbols he doesn’t quite get. Robert Pattinson’s messy hairstyle paired with his grunge fashion makes him that much more attractive to the ladies then just his scruffy facial hair alone. Besides his hair and masculine jaw line a couple of things that also caught a lot of fans eyes were his beautiful bluish-grey eyes and his height; us girls tend to like the taller boys after all.

But there is definitely more to Rob than his looks, he’s very down to earth, polite and charming and treats his fans with the respect they deserve. He knows without them he wouldn’t be where he is now with all their support. That’s why when he heard a group of fans couldn’t get tickets to see him on Oprah he made it a point to visit them personally just to bring them tickets and invite them to the show. Not only that, but while hanging out at local pubs and playing his guitar at open mic’s he is extremely polite and loves taking the time to give fans autographs and a quick picture if he’s not in too much of a hurry.

Although, sometimes timid Robert Pattinson has been surprised to find out he was chosen to be on People Magazine’s 100 most beautiful list and Time’s 100 most influential, he is happy to be noticed and grateful to all of his fans for helping make him so popular. With all of your support he gets to do what he enjoys doing.

Why You Chose Him:
Elizabeth: Robert Pattinson at a very young age of 24 has a certain “je ne sais quoi” which definitively sets him apart from the rest. He is stunningly photogenic and oozing with sensuality and a charisma he has no idea he possesses. With a style that is an emanation from his own being, a posh accent, a sense of the absurd, great musical abilities, and a sweet funny quirky personality, disarming yet unassuming, all of which magnifies his uniqueness. He gives articulate insightful interviews, wise and mature beyond his years. A well-read young man with depth. The fans and paparazzis relentlessly pursue him and as exhausted as he appears by it all, he handles the circus that surrounds him with a good-natured grin and self-deprecating charm and a persona that draws the young and old. I am looking forward to the entertaining saga of Robert Pattinson.

REMEMBER ME

Robert Pattinson beyond the Twilight saga. Escaping from the condition of Matinee Idol

(Almost) every movie teen idol went through this, from Johnny Depp to Leonardo DiCaprio: having achieved success with a series of films or TV programs aimed at younger audiences, were they called 21 Jump Street or the blockbuster Titanic, afterwards they had to prove their real acting value confronting themselves with more difficult and mature roles, even succeeding in being nominated at the Oscars (and not just once). In the United States male stars flattered by fans as that are known by a term, “Matinee idol”, that comes even from Rudolph Valentino’s time and that indicates the young age of the fans who, since they can’t go to the cinema at night, crowd the theaters on the first show of the afternoon (that is the Matinée). No doubt Robert Pattinson is the contemporary matinée idol who, as many colleagues before him (even less lucky, like River Phoenix or Christian Slater) with the explosion of the Twilight saga has found himself in the eye of the storm, besieged by fans and paparazzi and constantly on the covers of the tabloids. Now, while the saga moves towards the two final episodes of Breaking Dawn (which November 16, 2012 will establish the end of the cycle based on Stephenie Meyer’s books) Pattinson is trying to build himself a future choosing roles that are different from the vampire Edward Cullen. For his first step towards emancipation and the new career post-Twilight, the British actor has chosen Remember Me, a family drama directed by a veteran of TV series as Allen Coulter, who has worked on the Sopranos, Sex and the City, and Nurse Jackie, and soon on the upcoming series about the prohibition signed also by Scorsese, Broadwalk Empire (from September 18 on HBO in America). As a further guarantee to get out of the condition of matinée ido,l Pattinson has then wanted for Remember Me a high level surround with veterans such as Chris Cooper (Oscar in 2003 for Adaptation), Pierce Brosnan, Lena Olin and the new Lost star Emilie de Ravin. The result is a definitely good movie, in which Pattinson, with his interpretation of the rebel Tyler Hawkins, looks straight towards another great matinée idol as James Dean and his tormented acting in Rebel without a cause. Obviously, the comparison works just partially since the two guys, although the age is the same in both movies (24), can’t definitely be associated, the distance is still too much. However Remember me remains a good attempt to come out of the gothic sphere of Twilight, not a movie for twilighters or twi-hards, but one that can be enjoyed by everyone waiting for the other moves of R-Pattz, rapidly escaping from the condition of teen idol, called Bel-Ami, ambitious transposition of Guy de Maupassant with which he will have to stand up to females like Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, and Uma Thurman, and Water for Elephant,s in which he will have to confront two Oscar winners like Christoph Waltz and Reese Whiterspoon. Life’s hard for the matinée idol.
