Rob is the E! Celeb of the Year!

Sixty-four celebs, five weeks of voting, four fiercely contested brackets and a surprising wild card round later, Robert Pattinson comes out on top.

The great-haired hunk has won the E! Celeb of the Year honor—for the second year in a row!

Team Jacob and Twilight haters can get to steppin' because the evidence is crystal clear: You guys love R.Pattz. And what's even better? Pattinson's competitor for the final round of 2011's tournament was his "sexy goddess" Kristen Stewart. Again.

Here's how it went down:
More than a month ago, we introduced the 64 big-name contenders—Kate Middleton, Charlie Sheen, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears, to name a few—who all had a lot going on this year. (For the record, the new Duchess of Cambridge came super close to grabbing this title.)

So what made Rob stand out above all the pop stars, royals, Oscar winners and warlocks who dominated 2011?

Was it all about the jaw-dropping Breaking Dawn: Part 1, the sparkly vamp's latest blockbuster, which hit theaters last month and is still making bank?

Or was it his bold steps to more challenging roles like Cosmopolis?

Or maybe it was that mind-of-its-own hair or his?

Or was it just the smooch?

Whatever the case may be, we clearly can't escape the power of Pattinson. Congrats, Rob!

The question remains: What charity will he choose to have E! donate the $25,000 prize? We'll keep you posted.

David Cronenberg talks about Rob & 'Cosmopolis' in his interview with Variety!

 Although David Cronenberg has built a career on films that explore the dark crevasses of the mind, he says he likes to have "good, productive fun" when he's working. "I have a very light set, and I don't screw with people's heads," he says. During a break from the set of his upcoming "Cosmopolis," Cronenberg stopped by Variety's offices to talk with Christy Grosz about the challenges of financing and why he'll probably never make a big-budget studio film.


You've worked with a lot of high-profile British actors like Jeremy Irons and Miranda Richardson. Is there a different sensibility that British actors bring that works well for you?
Part of casting that people rarely understand or need to understand but is a huge part of making independent films is what passport the actor has. If you're doing a co-production you're not doing a co-production with America because U.S. doesn't have any co-production treaties. It means that you cannot use American actors or, if you do, you are very limited. "A Dangerous Method," technically, does not have any American actors. Viggo has a Danish passport. ("Cosmopolis star") Rob Pattinson is a U.K. citizen. When you have Paul Giamatti in "Cosmopolis," he's the only American actor, even though it's an American story that takes place in New York. So these are things that you have to consider. Inevitably, for me, if you're doing an English-speaking role, you look at U.K. actors. It's true, of course, that they have a wonderful tradition of great acting, and they are actors who do stage and television and movies, which in the old days was unique to the U.K. In America, there was a real stigma attached to you if you were a TV actor. Guys like George Clooney struggled, I think, to finally get out of there, and whereas in the U.K. there was no stigma attached to doing a TV show. So very experienced actors who really understood the difference between theater acting and stage acting, movie acting weren't, quote, theatrical when they did movies. They knew how to do that, whereas when you're working with actors from other countries, they didn't know how to do that. Even some Canadian actors were very theater-oriented, and they couldn't do that sort of naturalistic American style of acting. So U.K. actors were very attractive, and the quality of the work was great, and so on. That's a lot of the reason. Often it was a Canada-U.K. co-production. Or if it's a Canada-France co-production, English actors can work because it's the European Union and that's the deal, so it doesn't have to be a French actor per se, it could be a U.K. actor. So that's one of the reasons that I work with a lot of English actors.

Financing is never easy for independent films. Do you find that getting someone like Mortensen attached early on helps drum up interest?
You have to find a cast that matches the tone of the movie and the budget level that you're going for. Everybody knows about studio movies where they say, well, we'll do this $200 million movie if you get Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt. It's at a different level, but it's still the same dynamic when you're doing an independent film. It's like, "Well, we'll buy the rights to France if you get someone like Rob Pattinson or Paul Giamatti or whatever." You can't really have your leads be unknown even in an independent film. You can sort of introduce unknowns. Sarah Gadon, for example, who plays Emma Jung (in "A Dangerous Method"). She's Canadian. She's my discovery. She has a nice big role with Rob in "Cosmopolis." So by the time we're doing "Cosmopolis," she's a real asset. Her star is rising. She's getting attention, and that's lovely to see. And eventually you'll be able to finance.

I would think somebody like Rob Pattinson could help, too.
The thing is, by himself, it's not enough. We have Juliette Binoche. We have Mathieu Amalric. We needed the French element to sell France. Paul Giamatti (was) very important to make the film attractive everywhere but also in North America. So one actor, even a great actor or famous actor is often not enough on his own still. That's the way it goes. That's the name of the game. So for me the balancing act is to juggle all of those things: the passports, the money, the fame and still get the right actors in the roles. It's an entertainment trick.

"Breaking Dawn" cinematographer Guillermo Navarro, mentions Rob in a new interview!

 Taking a fresh approach meant re-creating from scratch the parallel realities of the different characters’ worlds. “We did a lot of tests and work on how the look of those worlds was going to appear. We wanted to stay away from other things that worked for the other movies,” such as Edward’s (Robert Pattinson) heavy white make-up, a signature of his vampire look, in order to focus more on what was going on inside the characters.
Prior to the wedding, Bella fantasizes about a different sort of wedding – one in which the couple is seen atop a wedding cake, but the cake is actually made up of a pyramid of dead bodies. “It’s a very beautiful shot of them, as if they were the cake toppers with this huge collection of bloody corpses beneath them,” Navarro describes. “We did a shot with Kristen and Robert on top of a little platform with all of these bloodied actors lying around, which you see as the camera starts revealing what’s there. So at the end, it really looks like a wedding cake, but it’s a nightmare wedding that she’s experiencing. It’s a pretty impressive shot, and one with incredibly strong imagery.”

Bill Condon on Edward's flashback scene: "I wanted to see Rob as a bloodsucker."

At 1:05 "The Highest-Grossing Actors of 2011" - Rob is #4!

According to Forbes
Robert Pattinson ranks fourth on our list with $750 million. He tops his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart (who ranks sixth with $633 million) thanks to the film adaptation of Water for Elephants. The film wasn’t a big hit in the U.S. but globally it brought in a healthy $117 million – pretty good considering the budget was only $38 million.

Robert Pattinson -$750 million
Pattinson's biggest hit of the year was Breaking Dawn, the fourth Twilight movie. But he also earns from Water for Elephants which brought in $117 million.

Patricia Mckenzie, Kendra in 'Cosmopolis', talks about working with Rob!

Patricia Mckenzie plays Eric Packer's bodyguard in 'Cosmopolis'.

CI: In “Cosmopolis” you play Kendra Hays, Can you tell us something about her? Who is Kendra?
PM: Kendra is an exhibitionist who craves power and wants to dominate Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) sexually. She was initially hired to be his bodyguard, but quickly becomes his lover. They are opposites in many ways, but both are hollow inside and searching for meaning in their existence. Ultimately, they risk leaving each other feeling as empty as they started.

CI: Did you give any workout tips to Robert Pattinson? How about your own workout schedule?
PM: Our love scene happened one month ahead of schedule so neither of us had time to get in the exact shape we wanted to be in, but I did a juice fast three days prior, and he went to the pub and drank a beer. Rob already has an incredible screen presence that comes easily to him, so he is very relaxed about how he appears.
A few months before we started shooting, I started boxing and combat training and I did a 3 week detox. It was something I always wanted to try, so I used the film as my motivation. I really enjoyed the process and have integrated the healthy eating and the boxing into my lifestyle.

CI: One of your scene involves you shooting Robert with a taser gun..did something funny happened that day? can you tell us something about it?
PM: For me the funny thing was that everyone approached the scene with no idea what was going to happen, but to be ready for anything. David, Robert and I explored it together, the way we might do if it were a play. We thought we had it nailed down, so we took a lunch break for the crew to light the scene. Then, after lunch, David said he wanted to shoot the scene a different way so the crew took time to re-light everything and Robert and I had time to bond a bit more before we started shooting the love scene. The result is amazing, very sexy, tense and humorous. I can’t really say what happens with the taser, you will have to see the movie to find out!
