Before director David Cronenberg’s new movie about a young, rich financier, Cosmopolis, was unveiled at the Cannes Film Festival, its star, Robert Pattinson, did a little revelation of his own – though, apparently, not as much as his director had requested.
In an interview for Metro France that quickly got picked up around the festival, the Twilight star, 26, was quoted as saying, “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.”
And how did the filmmaker of The Fly, Scanner, Eastern Promises and A Dangerous Method react to his leading man’s decision?
