Hotel de Rome. Roof-deck. Bodyguards. Assistants - and BILD. He's tall, shy, frank, relaxed, friendly, humble, laughs gladly and has a warm, accurate voice. He drinks cola.
He wears an outfit by "Hugo Boss": "It was in my wardrobe as a present - and my stuff was dirty."
BILD: Describe yourself!? "I don't know who I am. Everything was easy before I became famous. Now it's hard. Every time you talk about yourself your personality exhausts. I'm me."
He arrived here by Air Berlin out of the caribbean - not an executive jet. He travels with hand baggage: a backpack, a bag and a guitar. He smokes, is allergic to hashish and earned 27 millions in the last year. His life is a dream and a nightmare.
His success is his jail: "I'm scared of buying a house, because they would besiege it." He's on the run.
His new movie "Water for Elephants" is like a copy of his soul. Story: A young vet loses everything. He jumps on a circus' train and grows up. His love: Reese Witherspoon. His rival: Christoph Waltz!
Sort of "Gone with the Wind" on trails: "I felt like myself in this movie, because I was able to be myself. I didn't have to say much - but I had to react much."
BILD: How do you live? "I get up and go to bed. My most important friend is my alarm clock. I read books on my Kindle and my iPad 2."
BILD: Do you believe in destiny? "I guess I do - it makes life easier, you can do what you want."
BILD: What means luck for you? "Simple things. I'm easy to get lucky. A pizza and a sixpack beer last."
BILD: What's your most important holding? "I don't want to own anything. I always have my Gibson ax from 1963 with me. I love to lose my cell. Then you're so free!"
BILD: No vice? "Sometimes I'm addicted. I hoard and collect stuff - but I have no house. I bring everything to warehouses."
"Oscar"-star Christoph Waltz joins us.
BILD: What makes Rob unique? "Just look at him!" Director Francis Lawrence laughs: "He has a secret, something magnetic. Just a camera can catch it and there are people who are shining suddenly." Robert Pattinson laughs - at himself.
BILD: Are you single or in love? He laughs even more. His blue eyes stare into mine, his teeth dazzles. "Well, yes, I'm single, but I'm in love as well."
BILD: With? He laughs, I laugh, we laugh: "I'm sometimes feeling like a native in the boondocks. A question like this is a like a picture of your soul. I don't let my soul get stolen."
