“We did camera tests. I was sitting in the limo, I didn’t have anything to do … and I almost threw up,” Pattinson, 26, told Metro France. “My heart was beating so fast, I was scared David was going to fire me.”
However, Pattinson eventually found his groove, so to speak. Rob was asked if he found all the sex scenes “fun and exciting.”
His answer after the jump:
The most difficult one was the one with my bodyguard played by Patricia McKenzie,” Rob said, before he laughed: “At first, we were supposed to see us climax at the beginning of the scene, and then talk after. But David suggested that we talked while we f–ked.”
However, there was a scene where Rob had to tell David “no.” It’s when his prostate gets examined. A laughing Rob explained:
Five minutes before we filmed, David told me ‘I want to see the bottom of your balls on the top of the frame.’ At the moment, I reminded myself that I would do anything for him. So I went back to see him and told him that wouldn’t happen. He took it really well. At the start, it’s a very bizarre scene that you won’t see again in another movie, I promise.
Pattinson clearly trusts the acclaimed director and must have had an amazing experience working with him, because he has already signed on to Cronenberg’s next project without reading a script!
“It will be David’s first movie in America,” Rob says of the project. “In Los Angeles, to be exact. It will be about the industry of cinematography and I promise that it’s going to be really weird.”
Judging by the Cosmopolis trailer we certainly believe that it will be weird. Watch for yourself:
