Robert Pattinson went un-papped during NY shoot for Cannes movie

Pattinson, who earned what multiple outlets reported was a 6-minute standing ovation after his much anticipated film's screening finished, looked dapper in a Dior tux while his ladylove, 29, opted for a Cannes-appropriate postcard-printed yellow Dior gown. Twilight star Robert Pattinson earned the best reviews of his career at Cannes today playing a NY bank robber - and revealed he had to outsmart the paparazzi in order to play the part.

"Because we were shooting guerrilla-style, I was so nervous about people finding out about the shoot and paparazzi being there".

"I always wanted to look like I've been street cast", Pattinson said at a press conference about his wayward looks in the film. To create the character he revealed that he worked with a makeup artist to experiment with looks.

"You've got these pockmarks on the skin and no one recognised" him, he said. "We shot the movie on the streets of NY, and no one took a cell phone photo".

Both Safdie brothers had tears in their eyes, especially Ben who also stars in the film.

Good Time is not about to buck the trend, opening with Constantine Nikas (Pattinson) and his mentally handicapped brother Nick (Benny Safdie) securing a decent score only for their triumph to explode in their faces.

"I feel like the character was a conduit for a lot of different people's energies", said Pattinson, adding he felt like an outsider in a cast that all hailed from NY.

The latest news says that Robert Pattinson might be interested in appearing in a possible Twilight movie spin-off. Competing for the Palme d'Or, the film sports a definitive Robert Pattinson performance - one which could easily win him a Best Actor gong here - who is joined by the likes of Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Barkhad Abdi.

"He went full on. everything we did he was game for", he said.

"No one really sees that", he added.
