Who Robert Pattinson Wants to Work With
Robert Pattinson has burst the Twilight bubble and charted his career out of the vampire-infested forest into roles in Bel Ami and Cosmopolis. With his acting career now open to various directions, ET found out which actors he would like to work with in the future.

When asked what films he enjoys the most, Pattinson answered with cult film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Johny Depp) and drama One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (Jack Nicholson) but also mentioned comedy film The Mask (Jim Carrey).
Although he said that he would love to work with any of the lead actors in his favorite films, he singled out Jim Carrey and revealed an interest in acting in comedies. "I love Jim Carrey. I think he's amazing. He is one of the most consistent actors and people don't really realize 'cause he is a comedian," Pattinson said of Carrey.

"I love a lot of comic actors," he continued. "I love Eddie Murphy. I want to do a film with Eddie Murphy...but I've never met him or anything."
While the 26-year-old actor is content to broaden his acting roles beyond Twilight and perhaps even into comedy, he said that the franchise provided a relieving safety net that doesn't pertain to non-franchised films.

"There was something nice about 'Twilight' where you could experiment in between and you could kind of take a risk and you'd always have another 'Twilight' movie to go back to," he said. "When there is a safety net...you aren't really making decisions. You are kind of like, 'Maybe it will work, maybe it won't, but I got another 'Twilight' film anyway."
Although he enjoyed having the "safety net," Pattison maintains that the lack of that luxury has allowed him to become a more decisive and refined actor. "Now that there [are] no more 'Twilight' films, I'm like, 'This has to work.' So it's nice. It makes you stronger."

Pattinson also discussed his role in Cosmopolis of a very confident and expressive man, which he said he could relate to despite being an introvert.
"It's a strange thing to play someone who is so determined to prove that he knows what anyone else is going to say before they even say it," he said. "He has ideas of being a savant and stuff but...he's really lost and I think that's what I sort of relate to about it. He doesn't know what is going on."
Cosmopolis debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May and is set for release around the world this summer.
