Robert Pattinson Premieres "Cosmopolis" at Cannes Film Festival
Getting all dressed up after their morning photo call, the stars of "Cosmopolis" hit the red carpet at the 65th Cannes film festival in Cannes, France on Friday (May 25).
The film's leading man, Robert Pattinson, looked studly in a suit as he took to the Palais des Festivals venue alongside co-stars Sarah Gadon, Emily Hampshire and Paul Giamatti, as well as director David Cronenberg.
Also on hand for the "Cosmopolis" Cannes screening were fellow celebrities including Kristen Stewart, Tom Sturridge, Doutzen Kroes, Aishwarya Rai, and Kelly Rutherford.
The red carpet event comes just as it was announced that the new drama has been picked up by Scandinavian and Baltic distributor NonStop Ent.
As for the movie, "Cosmopolis" finds Pattinson playing the lead of Eric Packer, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager who rides across Manhattan in pursuit of a haircut. During his day-long journey, Packer delves into an odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart.
Talking with French media about filming the drama during an interview the previous day, Robert dished, "Five minutes before we filmed, David told me 'I want to see the bottom of your balls on the top of the frame.' At the moment, I reminded myself that I would do anything for him. So I went back to see him and told him that wouldn't happen."
The "Twilight" hunk added, "He took it really well. At the start, it's a very bizarre scene that you won't see again in another movie, I promise."
