Yeah, so this is who I hung out with last night.
Director David Cronenberg. Robert Pattinson. And David Carr from the New York Times.
Your average Wednesday evening.
I bought tickets to the event months ago…before Kristen Stewart happened. It was billed as “A Conversation about Cosmopolis,” which opens in select cities on Friday.
I worried the interview would be hijacked by the scandal. But when the three sat down in The Times Center theatre in Times Square, it was Cosmopolis from beginning to end. Lots of clips. Lots of conversation. Both surprisingly funny.
There was one moment when interviewer David Carr tried to use the Stewart/Pattinson scandal to draw a parallel, and the audience literally began to boo and hiss. Shouts of “Next question” and “Move along” filled the room.
Carr turned to the crowd and said, “I wasn’t going there,” to which someone loudly replied:
Robert was in good hands.
