Emilie de Ravin is anticipating the release of her new flick, Remember Me, with Robert Pattinson. You may recall that the duo spent the summer filming the movie in NYC, and that there were rumors that Rob was falling for Emilie while his girlfriend Kristen Stewart was cross-country filming The Runaways. Now we’re finally getting a look at screenshots and clips from the upcoming film, and it seems that Emilie can’t wait to talk about it.
The 28-year-old Australian actress recently caught up with MTV News to chat about the flick, Rob and the un-chartered Hollywood love story. Check it:
On instantly clicking with Rob: “They’d been looking to cast my role for a while, looking at a lot of different girls. I read the script three weeks before they started shooting. I flew to New York to test with Rob and we immediately got along and had instant great chemistry, which is not an easy thing to come by. Obviously you’re acting, but you want to have that connection with somebody. We had it. And I was thrown into a wardrobe fitting that same day.”
On trying to concentrate admist Twi-fans and paparazzi in NYC: “There were a lot of crazy moments where you’re filming on location and you’re waiting for people to get out of the shot. People don’t want to move. Rob and I would laugh about that. There was a scene where we’re on a date at a carnival, and it was very exposed to media, paparazzi and fans. We were rehearsing, and you become so self-conscious of people watching you, and we both stopped and looked at each other and were like, ‘Wait, what are we doing?’”
On being part of a different kind of love story: “The relationship between Ally and Tyler is so beautifully developed. It’s such an honest, organic, real love story. It’s not your typical Hollywood love story. Neither one of them were really looking for it, but it just happened. Obviously there’s a physical attraction, but also that thing you can’t put into words. They’re brought together in very random circumstances. It’s not love at first sight, but they’re intrigued at first sight. They’ve both had major family tragedies that, prior to their relationship, have closed them off, thinking no one can understand the way they really feel. They just get each other. There’s no false performance. It’s all open and who they are. That’s sometimes beautiful and sometimes ugly and sometimes frustrating, but it’s all on the table.”
Remember Me opens nationwide on Friday, March 12.
