I really didn't intend for today to turn into Robert Pattinson Day, but we're just gonna go with it because I really liked this chat with him and David Cronenberg about the making of Cosmopolis over at Time, especially this bit:
Time: Robert, do you have any tips for actors who have to play a prostate-exam scene?Pattinson : I was about three inches from Emily [Hampshire]’s face, which made it easier because if there was any distance she could have judged what I was doing, but the fact that it was so close meant that I had the upper hand—Cronenberg: : As it were!Pattinson : —In a very humiliating situation. That was probably the most powerful I felt during the making of the whole movie. I only found out later that a prostate exam only takes, like, a few seconds.Cronenberg: They literally take twelve seconds. If it goes on longer, then your doctor is trying to seduce you.
