Robert Pattinson Speaks on Sex, Cosmopolis Climaxes, Positive Reviews

by at . Comments

Robert Pattinson sat down with Josh Horowitz of MTV last night, going into detail about the most pressing issue in his life these days.

His professional life, that is. The topic of Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders was never broached once.

Instead, Pattinson delved into various topics related to Cosmopolis, the David Cronenberg-directed drama in which the actor stars as billionaire Eric Parker.

Cosmopolis Still

Most of the movie takes place inside a limo, with Pattinson's character on the way to get a haircut. This, of course, led to the inevitable question: has Robert ever peed inside a car?

YES! "Well, not all over the car," he said. "In a bottle!"

Self-deprecating as always, Pattinson said that receiving an offer from Cronenberg was "one of the first times I actually considered myself an actor."

"It was total luck, like a gift to get the job," he added. "I sort of fell into acting, it's not like I've been striving since I was a kid. I like movies more than acting, I think. I like the idea of being in movies that I like, so at least I've contributed something."

In Cosmopolis, Pattinson contributes to a sex scene, something that "becomes funnier [as you go along]" he explained, delving into the "mechanics" of such an act on camera.

"There's a climax and stuff. You're trying to figure that out... That was my idea, the climax scene and saying, 'Do you find this interesting?' afterwards. We're doing it in one take, you have to figure out what to do. I'm trying to hide my belly."

Whatever Pattinson did, it clearly worked. He's receiving the best reviews of his career for the role. How does that feel?

"It's a relief not to get sh-t on," he said. "I've had a lot of sh-t on my head."

Earlier in the week, Rob talked to Good Morning America and said he's not in the business of selling his personal life. Seriously, this guy rules.
