Robert Pattinson Says He May Make A Movie With Harmony Korine, Admits He Was "Bruised" By 'Twilight' Critics

"The first time I ever felt like I was seeing an adult when I looked at myself on screen, was when I discovered the Dior ad that I filmed last year, directed by Romain Gavras," Robert Pattinson told Premiere (via Maps To The Stars Fansite) magazine (see the ad below), and it's been a long battle for the actor to be seen as something more than just a YA hunk. While "Twilight" shot him to fame, breaking out of that public persona was difficult. "After being dissed for years because of 'Twilight,' my ego was a little bruised," he admits. But he's got great reasons to be feeling much better about himself and his career.

"The first time I ever felt like I was seeing an adult when I looked at myself on screen, was when I discovered the Dior ad that I filmed last year, directed by Romain Gavras," Robert Pattinson told Premiere (via Maps To The Stars Fansite) magazine (see the ad below), and it's been a long battle for the actor to be seen as something more than just a YA hunk. While "Twilight" shot him to fame, breaking out of that public persona was difficult. "After being dissed for years because of 'Twilight,' my ego was a little bruised," he admits. But he's got great reasons to be feeling much better about himself and his career.

Next week, the actor will be at Cannes for the second time, this time with two films to his name: David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars" and David Michod's "The Rover." And he's incredibly proud of those movies, and the choices he's making. " 'The Rover' confirmed this feeling [as an adult], which continued on 'Life,' the film I just shot with [Anton] Corbijn. I think I have more confidence in myself and these Cannes selections are helping a lot," Pattinson stated. And he's been getting some solid advice from those he's worked with.

"I remember seeing Juliette [Binoche] before we started shooting the [sex] scene [in 'Cosmopolis']. She was giving me advice: 'Keep choosing classy projects and filming intelligent films,' " Pattinson shared. And his next moves are definitely intriguing.

In our recent interview with James Gray, the director confirmed "The Lost City Of Z" with Pattinson and Benedict Cumberbatch was next, but before that, the actor reveals he might be doing something very unexpected. "In the meantime, I might film something with Harmony Korine, with whom I’ve been dreaming to work since I was 17, like with James Gray. I keep asking him what the film is about but he doesn’t want to tell me," Pattinson said. Damn.

So what could the project be? Well, anything really, but in the spring of 2013, it was reported that one of the films Korine was developing, and that could be his next, was about a multi-generational family of criminals in the South. Of course, that logline in the hands of Korine could be anything.

We'll certainly be keeping our ear to the ground for what Korine may be brewing next. As for Pattinson, he'll be shooting "The Lost City Of Z" in January, he's still got Werner Herzog's "Queen Of The Desert" on the way, and it looks like he's been following Binoche's advice to the letter.
