A sweet Rob mention at the beginning of Entertainment Weekly's 'Men of Hunger Games' article (August 5, 2011). Thanks to Robstenation
"Its an interesting thing to witness how a spotlight sits on a young actor. Weeks before Twilight stormed its way into theaters, for instance, a still largely unknown Robert Pattinson winced and demurred his way through a few questions on a crowded patio of a chic Los Angeles hotel. His posture was practically O-shaped as he spoke into the neckline of his shirt before wondering, rather endearingly, if we might go somewhere less populated. Today, at the bustling Early Girl restaurant in Asheville, NC an entirely different young man from an entirely different franchise, Josh Hutcherson, 18, sits beaming and gregarious over a rapidly vanishing plate of eggs and bacon. Hutcherson plays the beloved Peeta in the movie adaptation of Suzanna Collins' gripping trilogy, 'TheHunger Games."
Kristin Scott Thomas is firmly on Team Edward. Yes, she's starring now in a wrenching film about the Holocaust. But Thomas, 51, also shot the period drama Bel Ami with Twilight's Robert Pattinson and laughs when asked about his appeal. "Yes, I understand, I understand," she says with a cool chuckle.
Q: Tell me about working with Pattinson in Bel Ami.
A: (Laughs) He is absolutely charming and delightful, and he looks very good in a top hat.
