It's Linda's birthday!
Happy Birthday Linda! We ♥ you!
BTRC: You worked with Robert Pattinson before he was The Robert Pattinson, do you think you have an eye for talent?
MN: Erm, I don't know if I do. He was obviously good for the movie, he looks like the kind of fighter pilot, the head boy who will go out into the trenches on his second day. He just had that thing. He's a brilliant vampire! He's really good, he's a sweet guy, and he's a clever guy, he's not a dope at all!
Can you become the next Robert Pattinson?
Max: “It is a very lazy comparison, because Twilight was a phenomenon unto itself. Pattinson was chased down the streets of Paris before the films even came out. And he is doing well for himself. He has about five films with acclaimed directors lined up.
Jake: “A lot of people expect us to knock the Twilight cast. But Taylor Lautner is a really nice kid. Robert Pattinson, I couldn’t imagine the tremendous amount of pressure he was under — and he earned my respect when I saw him fight for certain projects. Water for Elephants is a great novel, the movie is what it was. That’s not his fault. That’s the risk; we’re the face of projects.”

- Got pictures with Robert Pattinson, he was drinking a beer and we had a chat with him for about 30 minutes ! he is so down to earth :O
- Lol, he is filming his new film The Rover in the town I live in country Australia, the other night me my mum and sister were walking home from the pub and ran into him out the front eating and having a beer. We stopped and chatted and got two pictures with him. He asked us to try and keep them off of FB to not cause issues with the Paps.
- Everyone in town has been going out and watching the filming (last night they did a outside action scene)
Tu Style Italy: Do you think Robert Pattinson is a good musician?
Jim: It's not my kind of music.
Tu Style Italy: But you didn't answer
Jim: He loves what he does, he seems sincere.
As for projects that may or may not be happening, Law confirmed Naomi Watts' statement that Werner Herzog's Gertrude Bell biopic "Queen of the Desert" is now on hold and he will likely be no longer be available for it when it returns. "I don’t think that’s happening. I don’t think I can do that anymore," he admitted.From Collider:
I also noticed on the always accurate IMDB that you are doing Dom Hemingway and Queen of the Desert.
Law: No, Queen of the Dessert, I don’t think is going to happen now, or I don’t think that I can be involved in it anymore. I’m not sure what happened there, whether they can get it together I don’t know.
FilmNation updated 'Hold on to Me' status to pre-production and added the film's full synopsis
Director: James Marsh | Cast: Carey Mulligan and Robert Pattinsonsource | via
Producers: Alexandra Milchan, Todd Field, and Indian Paintbrush’s Steven Rales and Mark Roybal | Writer Brad Ingelsby
HOLD ON TO ME is an electrifying thriller based on the extraordinary true story of a femme fatale who kidnaps and ransoms the town’s richest man. Mulligan plays Nancy, a small town girl who callously leaves her boyfriend Jimmy (Pattinson) behind to chase a modelling career in New York City, breaking his heart in the process. To Nancy’s surprise, New York isn’t impressed by her and at 26, she’s back home waiting tables at the local diner. When she gets word that Jimmy has become a wealthy and successful criminal in Chicago, she tracks him down with a view to winning his affections, only to find crushing rejection. Fuelled by jealousy and an unquenchable thirst for fortune, Nancy finds Danny, a naïve pawn she can seduce and manipulate to her own ends and together they embark on a life of crime. Success comes fast, and leaves faster but nothing and no one will stand in the way of Nancy’s naked, dangerous and deadly ambition.

In their efforts to block The Advertiser 's exclusive shots, the film crew and minders closed the road and claimed "ownership" of the town of about six buildings, east of Port Augusta.
"We own this town," a film producer told The Advertiser.
Minders used umbrellas and trucks to keep intrusive cameras off the star, who appeared to be sporting a close-shaved haircut for the role.
He also looks to have forgone his clean-cut look for the movie and has a three-day growth.
The scene featured Pattinson staggering out of the passenger side of a ute before being beaten to the ground by the driver.
Extras and a potential stand-in for Pattinson were also in Hammond for the filming and had earlier been in nearby Quorn where Pattinson is said to have had a drink at one of its pubs over the weekend.
Earlier yesterday, The Rover crew was filming at an even more remote location, the largely deserted town of Bruce.
The Rover is understood to be shooting at locations deeper in to the Flinders Ranges for the rest of this week and next month as far north as Marree.
The stars of the film and some of the extras are understood to be staying in Port Augusta while the movie's production centre has been set up in the Quorn Town Hall.
On set, the stars are well catered for as temperatures reach the high-30s this week - they have two airconditioned motorhomes.
Pattinson flew into Adelaide on January 18 - minus actress girlfriend Kristen Stewart - and spent more than a week around town, meeting the film's producers at the SA Film Corporation's new Glenside studios
The Twilight star was spotted having dinner on Gouger St with The Rover director David Michod and producer Liz Watts.
Pattinson was also photographed riding a bike around the Rivers Torrens without a helmet - an offence that earned him a warning from the police.
