Rob Pattinson at the Cannes photocall for Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’: adorable?

Robert Pattinson David Cronenberg

Here’s Robert Pattinson and David Cronenberg at the Cannes photocall for Cosmopolis. Obviously and by casting Rob as the lead in this film, Cronenberg has a lot of faith in Rob, and I think they have a sweet vibe together. In the movie, Rob plays billionaire Eric Packer and will be clad in head-to-toe Gucci, but here his look is obviously much more casual. We’ll see how he cleans up on the red carpet for tonight’s premiere. As for Cronenberg, he is such a freak. He’s paired Nike New Balance shoes with a wrinkled suit and black t-shirt. That’s probably what I’d do if I were a dude, but I’d only look like a douchebag. Here Cronenberg gets away with it but only because he’s Cronenberg.

Here’s Rob with his two leading ladies, Emily Hampshire and Sarah Gadon. They seem to get along quite well, but don’t worry, Kristen will probably on the red carpet this evening because Rob showed up for her On the Road premiere as well. Basically if she doesn’t show up, she’ll look bad.

Out of the two ladies, I prefer Emily’s dress because it’s very “Mad Men” and something that I could see Joan Holloway wearing. In fact, that might have been part of the plan with this outfit.

Emily Hampshire

Sarah Gadon didn’t fare too badly either (even though her hair is a two-toned mess), and I’m very curious about the designer ID on this dress. She already wore a Jason Wu dress for her Antiviral photocall earlier this week, but I can’t put my finger on this one. (Update: It’s a Roland Mouret design.)

Sarah Gadon

From the back, the zipper detail reminds me a lot of Victoria Beckham’s work, but this is clearly not a Beckham design because it’s simply not ugly and geometric enough.

Sarah Gadon

Thankfully, Paul Giamatti showed up too. His role isn’t huge, but it’s a pivotal one. I wonder where Samantha Morton was — probably off somewhere being glorious on a film set.

    I don’t wanna be rude but he looks [redacted].

    • ZenB!tch says:

      Very redacted.

      I’ve never gotten him. He looks like he his face was smushed by a skillet but this is not about his looks – he can’t help that he looks like a human tortilla – my issue here is his get up.

      The undershirt showing under the shirt looks totally “redacted” If he wants to show off whatever he is showing off wear a darker shirt and open it to show his chest. He can even put on sparkly powder. Yes that was a bad Twilight joke.

  2. Jackie says:

    when did cronenberg get so old? wow.

  3. Cherry says:

    Wow those two ladies (Emily Hampshire and Sarah Gadon) are WHITE. I´m sure my skin is the exact same color, but if I was doing a red carpet thing in sunny Cannes today, I would have remembered to put on some self-tanner last night. I dunno. Or is this considered chique now?

  4. Kaiser says:

    I like Sparkles, but he’s such a mouth-breather.

  5. Mirella says:

    Is he giving some sort of Spock signal in that last picture?

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Dude is a genius. I kind of feel like criticism of his appearance should be off the table. He should be able to show up at Cannes in a clown suit if he wants-he’s brilliant. Dissing Cronenberg is akin to dissing Orson Welles if he were still alive today (yeah I said it). RESPECT.

    • MJ says:

      YES! I love his early work, but it makes me happy that his last several features have taken him more into the mainstream. Not that he wasn’t popular before, but he’s less “cult” successful now, which he deserves.

      A Canadian national treasure!

      I have to say, I find both dresses really lovely and flattering, although the Roland Mouret (who codesigns Victoria Beckham dresses, which explains the similar loos) would be more attractive if hemmed to the knee. A hem should never cut off a woman’s legs at the widest point, even if it’s trendy at the moment. I know this because I have short, stumpy legs and this length makes my legs look about 18″ long.

  6. Jaime says:

    He’s HOT. Seriously, there’s not much else to say. No, his face isn’t perfect, but whose is? He also has an infectious and sweet personality. I just love Rob.

  7. mia girl says:

    Robert Pattinson looks adorably good.

    Love Gadon’s dress. Cronnenberg is awesome.

    Also gotta give some love to Paul Giamatti who is looking surprisngly svelt and dapper. Love him.

  8. really says:

    Rob, John Hawkes and Joaquin Pheonix have perfected, “Skewed, but sexy as all hell.”
    p.s. it’s a man’s world.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      YES! But I do think Pattinson is the most “pretty” of the three you mentioned. Joaquin is sexy, not good-looking really but sexy as hell. Upon first glance, John Hawkes looks like some of the meth heads that I see on the train in the morning. However, a closer look reveals something SO gentle/sweet/endearing in his eyes and his smile. I just love him so much.

  9. Buffy says:

    He’s never been attractive and he looks worse for wear here. He’s aging horribly.

    I don’t know what women see in him.

  10. Reece says:

    The ladies do look like the coordinated the colors. I like both dresses.
    Sparkles cleans up so nicely. Paul looks like it’s too damn earlier for this.
    Cronenberg has made my day with the Spock sign.

  11. cupidtyrox says:

    This is shaping up to be a good year for Rob & Kristen. Could they be the new Brange for the younger generation?

  12. Ann says:

    I love Paul Giamatti. He alsways looks like the next thing out of his mouth will be a snarky wisecrack.

    Sarah Gadon is a beautiful girl. I like her dress, interested to know who the designer is. Perhaps Canadian?

    Cronenberg seems like such an interesting guy. I bet he’d be a blast to talk to. Love his Spock signal.

    Robert looks really good. He sure does clean up well.

  13. wow says:

    Love Rob, hope this movie gets him out of the Twilight ghetto. And Paul Giamatti looks amazing here – when did he turn good looking??

  14. Chatcat says:

    Point 1 – I love Paul to death…one of my faves was his role in the Negotiator with SLJ and Spacey.

    Point 2 – I love Emily Hampshire’s entire look from her hair to her shoes…she is definately style on the red carpet!

    Point 3 – Sarah Gadon is a mess…the hair,the dress, the lack of hose (did you see all those nicks and bruises on the back of her legs). To me it’s all just skanky!

    Point 4 – Have never seen a Rob Pattison movie and have no plans too. I will say, he photos the best (and KStew too) of the “I have just done several bong hits where are the Dorito’s man” look celeb’s have to offer.

  15. Amy says:

    Sarah’s dress is Roland Mouret (who dressed her in the film). He’s also the designer Victoria Beckham has been accused of copying hence the similarities.

  16. shailee says:

    Rob looks good, him and Kristen have been getting great reviews, the first steps to move away from TW.

    Kristen will probably be on the carpet, he showed up to hers, now it’s her turn, the kissing video is adorable, I wish this couple the best

  17. Lila says:

    I like Rpatz and think he is a good looking guy, but he looks a little off to me…It’s like the older and skinnier he gets, the more his face thins out and looks strangely flat…I think he would look better with another ten pounds on him…I remember there was some pap photos of him surfing and the tabloids were all like “he gained weight” but I thought he looked way hotter and more masculine in those photos.

  18. nina says:

    DC is starting to look like Christopher Walken! He’s so crazy, Ringers is amazing as is Videodrome, but they are sick, sick movies, lol.

    Robert looks great. Remember that by Rob’s age, Leo D. had lost all his hotness. So Rob’s holding up well if you ask me.

  19. Mia 4S says:

    He literally does nothing for me…like nothing whatsoever, he’s a blank space. Anyway the reviews on this one are decidedly mixed and definitely more negative than the also mixed On the Road. So I thought for fun I would write next week’s Star magazine cover story:

    SPLIT! Rob and Kristen torn apart as she outshines him!!!

    You’re welcome tabloid editors.

    Used to be so attractive and had so much potential. Bleh.

  22. Anahata says:

    Whoa I just want to kiss his open mouth. Swoon.
    Love that he has a little chestne too (omg he IS human after all!!)

  23. Alice says:

    RP is adorbs!

    Cronenberg got old…

  24. Emma says:

    Today has been such a brilliant day. Congrats Rob on having an awesome premiere. You are great and deserve all the accolades.

  25. Crystal says:

    Ugh. No thanks. Do Not Want. I usually find him quite attractive but he’s looking a little busted. He’s probably just tired though.

  26. Diana says:

    I just love Rob, no matter his funny faces; actualy I love him more because of that. He’s unique and in my eyes, plain gorgeous. Can’t wait for the Cosmopolis reviews.

  27. B says:

    I loooooooove Cronenberg. I can’t wait to see this movie.

  28. danielle says:

    Both women look gorgeous…I have never gotten the Sparkles appeal. When I first set eyes on him in Harry Potter I thought “isn’t Cedric Diggory supposed to be good looking?!”
