Robert Pattinson has come a long way since his big acting debut in the Twilight film series and his talent has grown exponentially. As an actor, model, producer, and musician – there’s not much he can’t do and he doesn’t just succeed, he exceeds expectations.
However, in a new short for his GQ cover, he did show us one thing he just can’t do, and that’s surviving in the busy city without a hot dog.
His internal dialogue through Fear and Shame may be a play on an ironic situation, and it’s a good one at that, but it’s also a truthful look into the lives of celebrities who can’t just go the hot dog stand as easily as people who aren’t in the spotlight can.
In the GQ interview that accompanies the video, Pattinson talks everything from his Twilight success to his upcoming film Good Time and even how he got away from the paparazzi who were absolute scours for any part of him they could get their hands on.
‘There are ways to disappear, like, fairly easily. But you have to be living a quite strange life. It just involves effort, and most people can’t really be bothered to put the effort in.’
So maybe he’s not always on a mission for a hot dog or afraid to leave a hotel room or apartment, but the short film is definitely worth a watch. Plus, it’s a bit of a look into his mind which is incredibly interesting.
Good Time will be released on August 11th, 2017.
