Robert Pattinson might not have prepared for failure in his relationship to Kristen Stewart, but he definitely prepares for it in his professional life. The actor said that he constantly expects failure and that he would become a bad actor if he felt validated by any of his works.
He said, “I think as soon as you feel validated, you’re a bad actor. You have to constantly feel that there’s a 99 percent chance of failure. Total failure. Devastating failure. You should feel like every single job is the potential where you’re never going to get another job again. Not in a bad way – you should feel good about it, because then you’re in it. It’s all about living in the present.”
He added, “Cosmopolis was one of the first times I considered myself an actor. I had to come to terms with that. That was one of my first questions. ‘What do you see in me? Why? Why? Why are you hiring me?’ Cronenberg is one of those people when you’re asked who you want to work with, he doesn’t even come into my head. Because that’s like saying, ‘Want to work with Orson Welles?'”
He went on to say, “It was total luck. It was like a gift to get the job. I sort of fell into acting. It’s not like I’ve been striving since I was a kid to get this. But I like movies more than acting, I think. I like the idea of being in movies that I like, contributing something.”
