So if you saw the ET interview with Robert and Reese from behind the scenes of WFE, you will remember a reference to them having once been mother and long lost son, but that tragically Robert's part was cut.
That film was 2004's Vanity Fair, set in the 1800's about a young girl(Reese) who climbs the social latter in English Society. This is that cut scene featuring Robert which is availble in the DVD extras.
(sorry I don't know how to embed stuff real well, I tried it here with the 'Media' button but it didn't work).
It's not a large part and does not involve many lines but as usual he looks gorgeous and nails the emotion. I love it when he walks up by her side and takes her hand, that's so very sweet and so very Rob(and even back then he was a bit taller than her lol). I wish the scene had been kept. The reason for it's removal is unknown(to me anyway), but a close friend here, Gina Love, speculates they may have felt Rob too old looking to pass as Reese's son. Supposedly though the son was supposed to be sixteen in this scene, and it's 2004, Rob is 16/17(depending on the month since he could have already had his birthday), we both are, we're the same age and he has the same innocent, boyish face as when he played Cedric in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. So that makes no sense to me.
It's odd to me though how she pours her heart out to him insisting she's always loved him and such but in the actual film it was the father who showed the young boy more affection, Reese(Becky) would just stand there and observe and at times to see as though she didn't know he was there(she gives him up later in his life as a young boy, to live with his aunt and uncle, her husband's brother and wife).
Anyway though, the film itself was hard to follow and seemed to jump around randomly, but a good performance by Reese and this was a very good scene.
I watched that video on YouTube awhile back and was totally blown away by Rob's performance. His performance was excellent and he was absolutely gorgeous! It's EXTREMELY frustrating that it was cut from the film. At least it's on the DVD, but I think it would have made the film better had they used Rob's scene instead.
I agree completely that Rob looked excellent for Rawdy, Reese's son. However, the ending that Rob was in was totally different from the ending used in the movie. I would guess that Rob was cut because of how the producer/director wanted the movie to end, not because he did not look good and the appropriate age. I bought the DVD (used), so now I can see him on it anytime!
I liked that he accepted his mother and took her hand, as mentioned above, even though he was cold toward her at first. I think he was being sensitive to his aunt's feelings.
Yes! Rob should def have been KEPT in the movie! I bet the people who made it are kicking themselves now since they CUT OUT the biggest superstar in the world! HA! Their loss, because WE can still see him in the deleted scenes, and they don't get as much money as if RPattz WERE in it!
I may have to read Vanity Fair to see how the ending actually was. My guess is that Becky DID she her son at
Wait, It's a book too?
why is that not too surprising hehe.
yeah I bet they wish they had kept him in, 'Oh s***, look he's so big now, oops!" ROFL!
