Robert Pattinson sports some scruff for the cover of France’s Madame Figaro May issue.
The Water For Elephants actor spoke about his love of Marlon Brando, old Hollywood actresses and how Kristen Stewart shares a little in common with Katherine Hepburn.
“From the only three movies with James Dean, I like Giant, with Elizabeth Taylor. But for me, the great icon of the 60s is Marlon Brando, with this kind of internalized rage, this duality between masculinity and hidden tenderness,” he said.
“I’m also a fan of gangster films with James Cagney and Paul Newman, especially Cool Hand Luke. And among actresses, I love Isabelle Huppert, and from the golden age of Hollywood the passionate/fiery Ava Gardner, and the so classy, rough and funny Katharine Hepburn. Kristen Stewart, whose acting I admire, has something Hepburn-like,” Pattinson shared.
He has great taste in movies and actors.
