Robert Pattinson makes his first red-carpet appearance since Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart confessed to cheating on him with Rupert Sanders, her Snow White and the Huntsman director. In the David Cronenberg-directed Cosmopolis, the actor portrays Eric Packer, a brilliant, young and wealthy Wall Street trader who embarks on a day-long citywide adventure in his limo to get a haircut. Packer's on top of the world -- until a series of unforeseen events reveals his inner darkness.
Sarah Gadon, who plays Robert Pattinson’s wife in the film, steps out in a slinky sheath. "I definitely read any of his press and I tried to stay away from articles about him," she tells THR. "My friends would say 'oh did you hear this about Rob?' and I'd say 'stop! I don't want to hear it!' because I didn’t want any of those opinions to inform my working relationship."
Paul Giamatti has only one scene in the David Cronenberg-directed Cosmopolis, but he's OK with that. "I just thought it was a great part. I wanted to work with Cronenberg and I like Don DeLillo (who wrote the novel on which the film is based). You don’t ever get to do a 20-minute scene in a movie, so I had no idea if it would work and what it would be like," he told THR, adding: "It felt like a little miniature play. It had a lot of movement and some interesting emotional stuff in it. It was really fun to do."
Stanley Tucci brings brand-new wife Felicity Blunt, sister of actress Emily Blunt, to Cosmopolis' New York premiere. Tucci, who plays eccentric host Caeser Flickerman in the Hunger Games films, has roles in both Gambit and Jack the Giant Killer, which are both set for release in 2013.
Kevin Durand is an actor on the rise: he has a role in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis as well as Darren Aronofsky's Noah, starring Russell Crowe and Emma Watson. (Lost fans might remember him as a creepy hired killer who terrorizes the island dwellers.)
Russell Simmons, hip-hop mogul and man about town, hits the red carpet at the New York premiere of Cosmopolis.
