Robert Pattinson: Film reflects true Hollywood

Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson has said he thinks his new film Maps To The Stars is not a satire but an accurate portrayal of Hollywood.

The Twilight star has teamed up again with director David Cronenberg on the movie about a Hollywood family and their pursuit of celebrity, and he said many of the characters reminded him of people he has met in the industry.

R-Patz said: "People keep saying it's a satire, but it's relatively realistic. I don't think it's too much of a caricature of anyone. I've met plenty of characters like the ones in the movie, and I think they're dealt with quite sympathetically as well. I don't think it's trying to hurt anyone, even though it's presenting people with a lot of psychological issues.

"I think it's funny because the characters are interesting and funny, it's not necessarily the tone of the movie."

The 28-year-old British actor - who was propelled to stardom at the age of 20 when he landed the lead role of vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga, which he co-starred in with his ex-girlfreind Kristen Stewart - admitted many of the scenes in the film reminded him of his own experiences in Hollywood.

Robert said: "I think some of the conversations with agents and stuff seem very verbatim.
