Robert Pattinson, who’s known for his role in the Twilight series, ditched his bad boy image for a hot second to cover Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue. In the magazine, he discusses his upcoming role in Water for Elephants asÂ a “traveling-circus veterinarian who falls for the showâ€™s star attraction,” played by Reese Witherspoon, as well as his future with acting.
On maintaining his acting career:
â€œYou can never really predict what an audience wants or how to maintain a career, other than doing what you think is cool. Generally, what I think is cool is what everyone else hates.â€
On ditching the contact lenses he’s had to wear for Twilight:
â€œMy God, Iâ€™ll be glad to see the last of those. I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive. I want to reanimate them into something so I can kill them. Itâ€™s so embarrassing for me â€” after so many years, itâ€™s still a process every single morning. Everybody else has figured out how to do it, and then thereâ€™s two people holding me down because I canâ€™t do it myself.â€
I’m glad to see him ditch his typical look for this movie. I think he probably has a lot of potential. The movie comes out on April 22. Will you see Water for Elephants?
