The April issue of Style - on sale tomorrow with Il Corriere della Sera - is dedicated to the new stars of Hollywood. A generation of actors born in the 80s who stand out for their soft elegance and total secretiveness about their private lives.
The cover is dedicated to Robert Pattinson: the 24 year old British actor who emigrated to Hollywood and gained worldwide fame playing the pale vampire in the Twilight saga.
He now represents a new masculinity that is distant from the machismo of the 80s and in a long interview to Style he declares: “Luxury hotels, hot models and designers buzzing around me? All of them are traps, I want a quiet life.” The actor continues: “I’m not interested in casual relationships, I need to get to know people. I’m not making an existential statement: I just want a family with two or three kids”.
Meanwhile, like his colleagues Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield and Alexander Fehling, he brought a new, fresh, surprising male identity also to that subculture of fans who, via Facebook, made a star of him.
