Dior’s Official Statement – Article from Marie Claire UK
After months of speculation about the star’s rumoured partnership with the brand, the House of Dior has released an official statement today confirming the campaign.

They said: ‘The House of Dior is delighted to announce that actor Robert Pattinson is to be the new face of Dior Homme fragrance.’

The statement then goes on to praise Robert’s successful career in a number of high-profile movies, saying: ‘Since his first notable role in 2005 in the fourth Harry Potter sequel, film star Robert Pattinson has more recently come to be known through his role in the runaway box office success, the Twilight saga.

‘He has since proven the scope of his acting talents by choosing films as varied as Remember Me by Allen Coulter, Water for Elephants by Francis Lawrence, in which he starred alongside Reese Witherspoon, or with his role as Bel-Ami, the famous Maupassant character.

‘In the ultimate tribute to his talent, David Cronenberg chose him to star in his latest picture, Cosmopolis, adapted from the novel by Don de Lillo. A striking role as a golden boy which premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

‘He has recently completed filming David Michod¹s The Rover in Australia with Guy Pearce and will soon be on set for David Cronenberg¹s next picture, Maps to the Stars. Following on he will star in Hold on to Me, directed by James Marsh and co-starring Carey Mulligan.’

(…)

Dior Homme adds: ‘Today we are excited to announce that he will join the privileged circle of Dior faces. Photographed by American artist Nan Goldin and filmed by French director Romain Gavras, this new Dior Homme communication campaign is currently broadcast exclusively in Europe (except UK) and Asia (except China and Japan).’

Guy Pearce Talks about Rob and ‘The Rover’

Another interview with Guy Pearce from The Sunday Morning Herald

Guy Pearce has given a glimpse of what to expect from The Rover, the futuristic film he finished shooting with Robert Pattinson in outback South Australia last month.

Director David Michod’s keenly-anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom is “an unusual story” set in a world gone wrong in the near future.

“It’s a military state now, it’s every man for himself a little bit, it’s a very bleak kind of world,” says Pearce, who’s about to reach cinemas as the villain in Iron Man 3.

In The Rover, the Australian star plays the title role, a damaged man named Eric with nothing left to live for. Trying to track down a dangerous gang, he meets a young stranger, Rey (Pattinson), and they forge an uneasy alliance.

“[He’s] somebody he has no interest in,” Pearce says. “He’s purely using him to get where he needs to go. So through this bleak … world, there’s a little connection that’s kind of made, which on some level you might think would be a positive thing for this character.

“But on some level it actually makes things worse for him – to really believe that there’s some sense of love in the world or any sense of humanity or compassion. So it’s a pretty bleak story.”

As filming finished in the small town of Marree, almost 700 kilometres north of Adelaide, Pattinson said he wanted to be part of The Rover because “it was a startlingly original script, and it was one of those parts where you read it and you think, ‘I’d love to do this, but I know I’m never going to get it’.”

To play Rey, the Twilight star was dressed as unkempt and unshaven, with make-up to discolour his teeth.

Pattinson says his character, an American who has come to Australia with his brother (played by Scoot McNairy), is “the kind of person who has been brought up to believe they’re incapable of living independently. Someone has always been looking after him.”

The two central characters, Eric and Rey, have a shifting relationship that Pattinson described as “strange and disturbing.”
It’s a film, expected to be out later this year, that seems to have echoes of the classic post-apocalyptic Australian film Mad Max.

”Not as camp though,” says Pearce, was also in Animal Kingdom.”Mad Max is great, don’t get me wrong. But it’s heightened in a way, whereas this is pretty earnest.”

Amazing Story of How Rob Saved the Alligator from his 2011 Vanity Fair Photoshoot

 

“Just thought I would share the rest of the story with you all… Well, we all know this picture right? I was visiting Insta-gator in Louisiana last weekend with some fellow twilighters and happened to spot it on the wall. I raced over to it and, although the pic doesn’t show it clearly, the paper above the pic says that the alligator, appropriately named, Hollywood, lives at the ranch and that if you ask the tour guide, you can meet him!!!! I immediately went into stealth mode knocking people over trying to find the guide because anything that touched Rob, I MUST TOUCH! Anyway, finally found the guide, who we had nicknamed Marshmallow Man, because he fed the gators marshmallows and because he was hot, and he acted like he didn’t know what I was talking about, all braun, no brains, I guess. He told us to go ask the short, red-headed guy. So I did, and do you know what he told me? He said, “Hollywood’s not here anymore. Rob paid to have him released back into the wild. It’s the only time we’ve ever done that.” Needless to say, tears started to form, not because I didn’t get to meet the gator, but because our Rob is that sweet! I cried and love him even more if that’s possible! And that my friends, is the rest of the story.”
