Try to escape the shoulder
The first push to shake off the image of the actor Edward Cullen was the lead role in the movie Bel Ami (2012). In the same year, Pattinson appeared in Cosmopolis as a young millionaire. However, he is not appreciated because he has not yet gotten rid of his handsome image on the screen.
After playing a handsome role, Pattinson confessed to IndieWire that he found himself bored with a handsome and cliché model. “I want to be an interesting character and attract the audience not because of his handsome looks”, the actor confided.
This is seen in his role as Henry Costin in The Lost of City Z (2016). In the movie, he appeared with the image of a beard and mustache. There is also a role of survival in the desert in The Rover (2014), the dictator in The Childhood of a Leader (2016) …
This is also the period when Pattinson successfully sheds away the image of students. The actor’s characters are gradually darker and more dramatic. This can be seen through the role of a lighthouse guard, drowning in madness at The Lighthouse (2019). Fans can no longer see Twilight ‘s “melancholy romantic” idol .
“Robert could have headed in The Lighthouse. There were moments Pattinson was so expressive it was hard to recognize him. Before, we all thought Rob couldn’t do that”, commented Collider ‘s critic Gregory Ellwood.
