While doing promotion for Dior, Robert Pattinson was interviewed by the french magazine ‘Sport & Style’ .
In this preview of the interview (which will be out in full on Saturday) he was asked why he chose to do The Rover
Here’s a translation (using Google Translate) of his reply
Why did you choose The Rover David Michod which will be out soon ? To go against the grain of your public image ?
Probably a little , it’s part of the equation. I really wanted it , I auditioned twice! The script was beautiful , I ‘m hooked. The story is fantastic, very original , told in a very innovative way. It was something that seemed very different from everything else and I wanted to be there.
I didn’t think it was possible but Rob’s excitement for the movie makes us even more excited for it too.
