Playing Robert Pattinson on Playboy Role in 'Cosmopolis'

Robert Pattinson plays a playboy billionaire in the upcoming drama Cosmopolis and he reveals in a new interview that his young, screaming fans around the world are continuing to flock to all his movies -- not just the hugely successful Twilight franchise.

"We were in Lisbon (Portugal) the other day and there was this huge cinema for the first screening," Pattinson tells ET Canada. "And people were so unbelievably excited -- all these people were screaming on the red carpet -- a really young audience."

Pattinson plays a wealthy banker in Cosmopolis -- which takes a surreal look at the world of finance. It is unique in that the movie is nearly entirely set in the back of a stretch limousine driving through the streets of New York City.

Watch the video to hear Pattinson talk about working with the film's director David Cronenberg and to hear whether he personally reads fan sites for feedback on his work!
