Robert Pattinson’s in Toronto, spending a lot of time with co-star Sarah Gadon

A few days ago, Robert Pattinson arrived in Toronto to begin filming Maps To the Stars, his second film with director David Cronenberg. The film is being described as, “A complex look at Hollywood and what it reveals about Western culture.” So obviously they’re filming it in Toronto. That kills me! Even films that are about how Hollywood is so screwed up are shot in Canada. Anyway, these are a few photos from the set – Sparkles looking like James Dean with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. His haircut is especially good here, right?

Rob is starring in the film alongside Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore (you know she’ll become a mother-figure for him) and Sarah Gadon, who is fast becoming something of a Cronenberg muse. Gadon had a supporting role in A Dangerous Method (she plays Jung’s wife) and she’s also worked with Sparkles before, in Cronenberg’s last film, Cosmopolis. I remember thinking that she really wasn’t anything special, acting-wise. She’s attractive and moderately talented, but I don’t see how Cronenberg keeps casting her in major roles. So it’s incredibly interesting that Sparkles might be bangin’ Sarah Gadon, right?

Robert Pattinson has been linked to a few females since he split from Kristen Stewart earlier this year and now the actor has apparently been “getting close” to Maps To The Stars co-star Sarah Gadon whilst the pair have been filming in Toronto.

Rob and Sarah have both been busy on the set of their latest movie and pals have said that they may be a little more than just friends.

A source tells The Mirror: “The pair are filming out in Toronto and they have an obvious chemistry. They laugh a lot. But they are also very serious about their work and have been discussing their roles and rehearsing loads together, one on one.”

They continued: “Sarah helped Rob choose a cool waterside property during filming and they have been hanging out a lot wherever possible. They share similar backgrounds. On paper they would make a very cute couple.”

“Rob is in no hurry to get a new girlfriend, though, so officially he and Sarah are still very much just friends – but it’s definitely a case of watch this space.”

Sources have also linked the Twilight hunk to Elvis’ granddaughter Riley Keough, with recent reports even claiming that Rob’s ex GF Kristen Stewart confronted her over the romance rumours.

An insider has revealed to OK! that Kristen “called Riley. She likes and respect her, but she just doesn’t feel like it is ever right to go after a good friend’s ex who is suddenly on the market.”

The source adds that Kristen thinks the supposed hookup is “really uncool,” but she kept her conversation with Riley calm, avoiding a major argument: “It was a civil conversation where the takeaway was that Riley was sorry that Kristen felt that way”, the source claims.

I think it’s probably true that Rob and Sarah have been spending some time together in Toronto, but let’s not put the cart before the sparkle-pony. He JUST got into town a few days ago and already the tabloids are trying to make it into something torrid. Now, that being said… it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Rob had a string of not-so-serious hookups and liaisons now that he and Kristen are done. And Gadon would be a somewhat interesting choice. I would be more interested if he and Mia Wasikowska fooled around, just because there might be more of a scandal (because she’s currently dating Jesse Eisenberg).

    Eh. This sounds like PR. He is just not attractive to me, he only looked good in Twilight. Mia Wasikowska is a very talented actress so lets hope he compares favourably.

    • Jenn says:

      Now that is one fine looking man. He just keeps getting finer and finer. Rob is free to date anyone he chooses without any guilt since he is no longer in a relationship.

    • Anname says:

      No one is using this as “PR”, this is tabloid fiction. Harmless, but I wouldn’t call it PR.

      Love this first picture of him.

  2. Bebo says:

    Honestly the tabs have him hooking up with every female he comes into contact with. Not that I think it’s a bad thing, that he fool around a bit, but I doubt it’s true. Anyhow, he’s giving me major James Dean vibes here and he looks hot!

  3. KLO says:

    I dont care about Pattinson. Give me Kristen Stewart over him any day of the week.

    • Janet says:

      KStew is fine if you’re into brain-dead zombies.

      • lindyuk says:

        You can have the twit with pleasure along with her latest offering ‘camp Xray which sounds like a bad porn film..right up her street I’d say…

    • Jenn says:

      Come on people. This is an article about Rob, not Kristen. Why does she have to be mentioned. If you had rather talk about her, go to one of her sites.

  4. Katie says:

    Wow he looks hot and sexy! I like him now he’s free of the cheating home wrecker

  5. Katie says:

    And I like Mia as well! Good actress :)

  6. erin says:

    I think he looks great. And I hope he is having some fun

  7. Tig says:

    I tried to read the book this movie is based on, and just gave up. Based on the cast, I am assuming the script is great- can’t see Juluanne Moore, Cusack, etc signing on with a bad script.

    Don’t buy the Sarah story, tho she is lovely. He looks great here.

    • Mia 4S says:

      Eh, you’d be surprised. A lot of them would sign on just to work with Cronenberg. He’s the edgy artist after all. Look I’m Canadian and Cronenberg has made a few great pictures, but most of his stuff is inaccessible and makes about $5 at the box office.

      Sparkles continues to do nothing for me, acting or otherwise.

      • Olivia says:

        A Dangerous Method made 27million world wide which is pretty good for an indie. It had Fassbender, knightley and viggo in it. I really wished viggo hadn’t dropped out, he isn’t filming right now so I don’t see why he couldn’t have done it.

      • Dee says:

        I have only seen his Eastern Promises and i really liked it. I don’t care if it didn’t even make $5 at the BO. Accessibility is not the only factor which makes a movie good. Not everyone watching movies is a fool who only appreciates a Superman and everything else is too cerebral for them. Some people can enjoy both or even multiple genres.

    • Olivia says:

      Julianne and John both have signed on for bad scripts or should I say bad films in the past few years at least according to the Bo and RT. i dont think their participation necessarily means quality. Didn’t viggo drop out John replace him? Anyway, I love Mia so I am super excited to see what she does with this role and I like that rob is taking a supporting role so the film doesn’t hinge just on him. Smart move. Sarah seems like a lovely girl, maybe she and Rob can connect on this film. They would be a cute couple.

  8. Annie says:

    They would make a cute couple. Sarah seems classy and low-key. But it’s way too soon to pair him up with someone.

  9. taxi says:

    I see a Sarah-Saoirse resemblance but none between Patts & Dean. Dean was hot but RP is not. Dean had better white t-shirts too.

  10. MellyBee says:

    Sparkles is making me feel all sorts of tingly. He’s hot! I also think that he is gay and that all of these “romances” he has with the ladies are to hide that fact. The Kristen thing was also a way to sell tickets. I would love to see him come out. His boyfriend would probably be all kinds of de-lish too!

  11. Lee says:

    He looks so good in these. I doubt there’s any truth to the Sarah Gadon hook up but I do hope he starts dating again soon. It’d be nice to see him with a real woman on his side for a change.

  12. mia girl says:

    Look at you Rob, all sexy-like with that new haircut and what looks like the beginning of a slightly buffed body. I like it.

    You go Glen Coco!

  13. Original A says:

    At this point, the tabloids are hooking him up with whomever he interacts with and the guy’s been in Toronto less than a week. Also, The Mirror?

    • Another Ann says:

      Not only that, but I don’t think he and Sarah will even be on set together. They have completely different character arcs. He’s been filming with Mia in the two whole days he’s been there.

      Nice try, tabloid fic writers.

  14. Delilah says:

    Ok. Why is everything happening in Canada now? I was in Toronto & officially labelled it “bizarro NY” since it bares some resemblance- at least architecturally to NY. However, there’s no contest as to which has more buzz. But now I’m beginning to wonder. But about Rob, he looks yummy. I don’t think his mind is on romance. I think the only way he’ll pursue anything with anyone is if it feels cosmic… I hope for his sake he meets someone outside the industry. At least that would give me a chance, lol;). Wait, I’m happily married, but you catch my drift…

  15. lady mary. says:

    sounds like a dull script but ,nice to see rob is getting his good looks back,i saw his recent pics where he switched his backward cap for his old beanie ,way to go rob

    • Anname says:

      Bruce Wagner is not known for “dull”, I expect the script is dark and provocative.

      • Tig says:

        Did you read “Dead Stars”? This is a serious question- as noted above, I tried but gave up. Is there a point where it starts to hold together? Think I made it to around pg 75( my 50 pg rule, pls a bit more)- so will be interested in your comments. It may be not a summer read- too hot to think that hard!!

      • Lou says:

        @Tig Maps is a completely original script. It’s not based on Dead Stars and in actual fact that book was written after Wagner wrote the script. It will be a very thought provoking and provocative film, perfect for Cronenberg.

      • Anname says:

        Tig, I read A LOT, and yes I have read Dead Stars. It’s fascinating, brutal. Not an easy read. If you were not into it by page 75, you wouldn’t like the rest of it, imo. It just gets weirder. If the script takes the same tone as the book (albeit a different story), it will probably be a tough movie to watch.

  16. Asdfg says:

    It seems like every person a celebrity is working with is “hooking up”. LOL.

  17. lisa says:

    sarah looks so clean in that photo that i might pretend i think it is true

  18. MidnightAtTheMuseum says:

    Hmm, not sure why you think Julianne Moore would want to be a mother figure to a very hot 27 year old guy! A little ageism creeping in here?

  19. Emily C. says:

    He smokes too? ICK.

    • Emma says:

      He’s been smoking e-cigs and has been trying to quit. I think this cig is for his character in the film.

    • Laura says:

      That’s an e-cig. He quit smoking real cigarrettes over a year ago.

      • Emily C. says:

        Well, that’s good.

        I still think he’s ick though :P . I never thought he was hugely hot, but that could be because I am much older than him. But I’ve been trying to make excuses for him about the work he picks for a long time, because he seemed harmless. Twilight, Bel Ami, and worst of all, horribly gross photo shoots. I can’t make excuses any more. He chooses this stuff. And he parties at the Marmont.

  20. Dee says:

    Rob looks awesome. And these are just pap pics. Waiting for the time when someone who really knows how to work a camera catches him with his new hair do.

    PS I really like how he tries to change his hairstyles and look for his movies. It really helps to differentiate between different characters he has portrayed. Edward is so different from Tyler of RM. You’ll never remember Eric Packer when you’re looking at Jacob from WFE. Love this about him. Sorry, having a fangirl moment here.

    • Meme says:

      I completely agree about Robs look in films. He does try to change it up with different hair. It’s good that he’s not so precious about his look that he is prepared to alter his appearance to some degree. A lot of young actors don’t do that.

    • Jenn says:

      I have always thought Rob adapted to his character very well, the sign of a good actor and having a great American accent.

  21. KierneM says:

    Oh, brother. Seventy million stories of our Sparkles hooking up with every female co-star ever for the next year or so. Wait for it- next thing we read about is the deep, intense fling he’s going to have with the barista who sold him his morning java. Sheesh.
    He does look awesome in these pics, though.

  22. Lou says:

    It’s great to see Rob back on the set of a Cronenberg movie again, I loved Cosmopolis and I do think they have a very genuine friendship. I love Mia, so I’m glad to see he’ll have scenes with her. He is looking too fine in these pics!

  23. Emma says:

    I think the film is being shot in Canada because Cronenberg always films his movies in Canada. It’s his thing.

    • Anname says:

      The production is moving to LA in a few weeks, Cronenberg’s first American location.

  24. Emma says:

    Also, Rob looks mighty fine in that first picture. Very James Dean.

  25. Talie says:

    Sarah is gorgeous! And she was the best thing in Cosmopolis.

  26. Shy says:

    Please don’t compare this Doormat famewhore with the gorgeous and sexy James Dean. He wishes he could have an ounce of charisma that James possessed.

    • Anname says:

      Eh, I think his charisma is one of the strongest things about him. You don’t necessarily have to like him to acknowledge he is charismatic. He has something that many people are drawn to, even if you are not. I don’t like Hiddleston but I can see why others do.

      And “famewhore” – really? That’s quite a stretch.

    • Becca says:

      Famewhore really? You couldn’t be further from the truth on that. Lol, those of you who don’t like him have to really clutch at straws huh? And Rob is hugely charismatic, have you ever seen the guy interviewed?

  27. Mia says:

    At least she looks like she takes showers, unlike Kristen. Almost anyone is a step up from that chick.

  28. Tig says:

    @ Lou- thanks for clearing that up- could have sworn read somewhere that Maps movie was based- albeit loosely- on that book. Both are an examination of celeb culture- so should be interesting.

    • Lou says:

      @Tig No that’s a misconception that’s been going around for a while. It explores similar themes, but the characters are completely different, as is the story :)

  29. Lexi says:

    He looks soo good :)

  30. Jennifer12 says:

    I really like Rob; he gives off such a nice vibe. And I’m glad I wasn’t the only one thinking he looked like James Dean there. I think he’s a good actor, not based on Twilight, but on what he did with not great material and in other films. Indie filmmakers like him for a reason. And now that he’s no longer fascinated by Kristin’s immature back and forth, he seems much more mature.

  31. jess says:

    Sara always seemed annoyed by him and seemed annoyed when asked about him. I think she is terrified of his fans. As for her acting, I only saw her in cosmopolis and wasnt impressed.

  32. Tig says:

    @ Anname- thanks for the feedback- appears that I won’t be revisiting that one! Have you read anything by Matt Haig? Reading his newest now- The Humans- it’s very good.

  33. fallen says:

    Don’t really care for Robert, but you do realize that David Cronenberg is Canadian and always films in Canada? Working in ‘Hollywood’ doesn’t mean you can’t support your country by bringing work there.

  34. sadie says:

    Mia would not go for Rob. He is not smart enough.

  35. magpie says:

    Whatever he’s doing, it’s good. He’s getting his sexy back.

  36. Wassup! says:

    Don’t get me wrong that guy is talented and a good looking man but man comparing him to Jimmy Dean … NO… James Dean is a freaking icon, a legend, one of the greatest. James Dean was incredibly beautiful, cool and he would do it effortlessly.

  37. Duke Steele says:

    Every time I see this guy, he always looks dirty. I’ve seen pics of him in a suit and tie and he still looks like he needs a shower. I swear I can smell his bo just looking at a picture of him.And his ex, Kristen, always looks dirty and smelly too. They belong together.
