Having my Cannes and eating it too...


'Cosmopolis' and 'On the Road' are both included as 
FILMS IN COMPETITION at the 65th Cannes Film Festival! 
Congratulations to Rob and Kristen and Tom! 
We are SO SO proud of you!
The 2012 Cannes Film Festival will take place from May 16 to May 27, 2012. 

As a fan of Robert and Kristen
I'm overwhelmed with all the news we are getting...

2 new Cosmopolis trailers were released
(Go to RobStenation to see them)
And watching just those 2 minutes of Robert...
Being the Anti-Robert
Being so immersed in this character
In that world
Rob has always been so expressive just with his face
And there is a look in his eyes in this movie...
It's fascinating.
It's like...
It's like Robert Pattinson is completely gone
and all you see is Eric Packer.


And honestly...
Who pulls off the suit/tie/sunglasses
better than Robert?
Get back to me on that one...

And then we have our lovely Kristen

I fucking LOVE this poster.

"Love is a duel"

My insides are doing flips and tumbles right now.
I know a lot of people think I'm just excited by the prospect
of Robert and Kristen (and Thomas... never forget Thomas)
Going to Cannes together
But you know what?
That's not it at all.

I'm excited to see Kristen play an iconic character
A role that she admits to being beyond thrilled to play...
I'm excited for people to see how talented she is
I'm excited for everything right now.

Remember what Thomas said about working with Kristen?

“It was so terrifying entering into that world 
and what was great was just having someone that I knew
 and actually working with her. 
She's just a fucking extraordinary actress, 
just really, really extraordinary 
and it's astonishing just to see her do her job.”

And that brings me to...

Thomas Sturridge.
Because he's part of this too.

Have you seen any of his movies?
He can make you laugh...
He can make you swoon...
He can break your heart.
Thomas is

“It was genuinely, one of the deepest 
working experiences I've ever had. 
It was extraordinary.” 

On The Road
holds so many things for me.
The story.
The characters.
The people.

The anticipation is killing me.


And finally?
Will we see this on the red carpet at Cannes?

It doesn't matter.
People get worked up over the wrong things.
It would be wonderful to see Rob and Kristen together
(And Tom on a red carpet? I die)
Do I really need to revisit the cake/frosting analogy again?
(Although the icing on this cake is SWEET)

Because what is important here...
Is the honor of their movies in the competition.
What is important here...
Is people noticing their work
their talent
As they move above and beyond.
What is important here...
Is Robert and Kristen being recognized
for all their hard work.
Not who they have on their arm.

That being said...
I enjoy having my cake.
Eating it is divine.

This post is brought to you by Talent.
are full of it.
Overflowing with it.
And everyday we get to see more.
I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.

And this post is brought to you by cake.
Seeing Robert and Kristen being successful
and making incredible movies
and being recognized for their talent
is the scrumptious, delectable cake.
Seeing Robert and Kristen 
happy in love
is the exquisite icing.
So sweet.
So delightful.
So delicious.

April Showers
Bring May... ?

Until then.

Bye for now

Groovie said...

Love this post!

Big Congrats to Rob, Kristen & Tom!
Having a film in competition at Cannes is a BFD and I can't think of any two people that deserve that more than they do!

Cosmopolis trailer is awesome and I love how they released a poster for each character in OTR; love Marylou's poster with the cannes logo on it! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Leni said...

So proud and excited for Rob and Kristen!!!

That they both have films in competition is just mind blowing and I wish them both only the very best <3

The two Cosmopolis trailers and the Marylou (and Carlo Marx) posters look so so good!

Have a great day/evening everybody :)

ali mac said...

Just think how exciting it must be for them at the moment!!!! They are both going to be at Cannes at the same time with separate films, they must be so pleased for each other and themselves :0) This is going to be a great time even if we don't get pics of them together,at least we will get some of them on their own!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

This is a good day indeed. I add my congratulations to Rob, Kristen and Tom on having their movies showcased at Cannes. This is a wonderful accomplishment for them and everyone working on their respective projects. I hope Cannes proves to be a very memorable experience. Continued good fortune to our favourite three.

And yes…the picture of Rob in the suit and glasses is a killer!

I hope everyone is a having the best of days.

Take care.

barbara said...

Great Post Rose.
Over the moon with the news.We already know what a Talent Rob and Kristen are.And now both their movies are headed for Cannes.I am bursting with pride.Rob really gets inside every character he plays,RM,WFE,as for Edward Cullen,Rob was perfect,he understood more than anyone the turmoil and self loathing of Edward.Our darling Kristen,well,she is as Rob said"the best actress of our generation".TYH,WTTR,TR, they are brilliant actors both of them.And yes,Rob does rock a suit, Sunglasses,also The beanie,The Hobo look,Boardshorts,etc,etc,etc....

Litmom said...

Exceptional Day, Dear Roselanders!

If any of you are moms, you know how you feel when your child studies and studies and makes a 100 on a Spelling test and gets a special sticker? Or she spends hours and hours (and years and years) practicing those dance combinations, and finally gets that first place trophy? Or works and writes and tests and gets that college scholarship?

Well, my thoughts today are, not just for Kristen and Rob - and Tom - but for Jules and Claire and Phoebe (had to look that one up :-) )! Proud, happy, FULL OF LOVE moms! 'Cause when your baby is happy, YOU'RE happy!


And Rose - I just love, love, love what you had to say today!

Hope said...

CONGRATS again to Rob, Kristen and Tom!!!

This will be an amazing experience so I hope they go to Cannes and have the time of their lives! What are the odds of BOTH of them having films at Cannes the same year again?! EPIC!

Rose....the anticipation is killing me too! Gahhhhh!!!

Anonymous said...

Woo hoo! So happy and proud of Rob and Kristen (and Tom) and this wonderful honour. Cannes is such a big deal.

Congrats to Rob and Kristen!!!

Teeth said...


As soon as I'm done with school, I'm gonna get right to reading the books of their movies!

Barbara Fenwick said...

This is wonderful. It is so exciting to see Rob, Kristen, and Tom (I hope) going to Cannes. I am so proud of all of them, and I am anxious to see what happens next.

Have a great week everyone.

DreamerKind said...

Good evening!

What a day for a daydream. Well, guess what, it's not a dream anymore!

Best wishes Kristen, Tom and Rob on your Cannes films acceptance. Bloody, jolly, great!

((Hugs & Mwahs))

*I*Believe* said...

Yes, yes, yes....good things are about to happen!!!!!

olivia said...

Dear Rose and Roseland,

Break out the champagne, let the twirling begin.

The announcements today were phenomenal!
Rob and Kristen, so very proud of you, happy and excited.
Both of them so honored with having their respective films in competition at Cannes.
Très, très merveilleux!

How heavenly to be able to experience this great and rare honor with your soul mate, family and friends.

Just to repeat once more....
The most beautiful and wonderful OTR poster, the one with Kristen and also the Cannes symbol, unveiled at last! Awesome!
And....the Cosmopolis full length trailer.....heart pounding, mesmerizing and full of electric intensity.
Rob will leave us breathless and perhaps even speechless.

As Rose has been telling us.....
The best is yet to come.

Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Life is good.

Birdie said...

Who would have thought a few years ago that Rob and Kristen would each be going to Cannes representing their films? Amazing! To all the naysayers, I hope you enjoy your crow. Two very savvy intelligent young people that continue to make exemplary choices professionally and privately. So proud to be a fan.

Feels07 said...

Hello Roseland! Hope everyone's doing well!

@DK: hi! How are you doing? :)

So, CANNES. I'm so overwhelmed, I'm having such a hard time handling my excitement, I need someone to hold my hand. Rob+Kristen+Tom+Cannes.. Am I in heaven?
I'm so proud of them, I feel like a mother seeing her children on their first day of school even though they are all older than me.
I can't wait for the world to see their talent, to finally recognize their awesomeness and notice how seriously they take their job.

The thing that increases my excitement is that MAYBE I'll be able to go to Cannes and see them for the first time ever in my life. Right now I can't think too much about that possibility because just the thought of it takes my breathe away. Let's see what happens..

Bye everyone! :)

wania said...

DreamerKind said...

Thanks, babe, no headache today! Miss you.

Hi, I'm good. I'm holding your sweet hand, too!
Would be so happy and excited for you to go to Cannes! We'd expect the whole truth and nothing but...lol! :)

Aren't we all beyond words (need music)?

I wanna put a real picture of my teeth.

On a scale of one to ten, how weird is that?

DreamerKind said...

For Feels07

Truth'll Set You Free

Mother's Finest (1978):

If I was blind
And I could not see
Would you lend a hand
To try and help me

Life is full of ups and down
You can't face them wearing a frown
Tell your mind
To be cool brother
Man free your soul
Don't be no fool

Truth gonna set you free
Truth gonna set you free
Truth gonna set you free

Whoop, Whoop, Whoop
Ba-Ba-Ba Booie, Booie
Yeh, Yeh
Whoa Yeh

Said I
I wasn't gonna tell nobody
But I just couldn't keep it lord
Lord to myself

So I put my soul in motion
Got true love
And devotion

Put my trust in the man
Cause he's the only one
Who can give you

Truth gonna set you free
Truth gonna set you free
Truth gonna set you free

You've got to be yourself
And let yourself be felt
Cause if you wanna be free
Whoop whoop who
Ba, ba, ba, booie, booie
Yeh, yeh, yeh whoa ye

Someday it's gonna be alright
Sure as the sun shines down
It's gonna be alright

Someday gonna make it true
Like the sun flower follows the sun
I'm gonna follow you
Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh
Whoa yeh

I've been searching
I've been seeking
I've been looking
For some happiness

Thank you/VolksMusik08

DreamerKind said...

I'd like to see your teeth. I'd say it is 2 per cent weird. So, we have lots of percentage before we are nuts.

Angel Oriz said...


olivia said...

Dear Rose and Roseland,

Still celebrating the wonderful news about Cannes.

So very happy for Rob, Kristen and their families.

Have a beautiful Friday.

Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.

Feels07 said...

Thank you so much DK! :)

Unknown said...

I'm worried.....it seems like we see nothing of Rob since the beach fiasco.....Kristen looks so sad and she is no longer wearing the gold band on her right hand...what's up with that? They should just do what their relationship dictates and hang the rest.....

Litmom said...

WTH? Are blind, deaf, AND DUMB? Where have you been for the past 3 years?

Annie said...

What rock did you just crawl out from?
It's just past 11:15 (EST) .......Do us all a favour and think before writing BS and hitting that send button!

Good Morning/ Afternoon/Evening/Night everyone else.

katy said...


Do not post until you have recovered your brain from the sewer. Otherwise, you need to wait until you grow a brain before you post.

Dottie said...

TGIF Roseland! I'm so ready for the week end.

I sometimes wonder if "unknown" commenters come here pretending to be insecure fans in a lame attempt to stir up trouble? It's really hard to believe that anyone who pays even the slightest bit of attention would question such an obviously strong and committed relationship.

Have a great one, friends!


Em said...

I have a break n stuff is usually happy here so I came to read cause I'm not having a great day some stupid person is making sure of that n I get on here n this! Like let me just say to this unknown maybe u need to find out who u r before u start giving ur opinion about somebody else's life! Like how do u know kris looks sad? the pics that I was just looking at here show her just beautiful n smiling n I really doubt u know her cause she wouldn't hang w someone like u! n the ring? R u serious? Like really? I didn't know a ring was like the biggest sign of love! love is inside in ur heart n wearing a ring or not doesn't change that! god! I better go I hope all u guys r good n have a happy weekend bye

Leni said...

Dottie - I was just thinking the exact same thing.

Em - I hope your day gets better :)

Em said...

angelica1 said...

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a good Friday.

dottie - I'm sure you're right since no one that stupid could manage to breathe unaided,let alone switch on a computer.

Em - I hope your day gets better :)

Dottie said...

Angelica - Right?? If they read Rose then they have no excuse for that kind of stupidity! ;)

Em - I hope things get better. We're always here for ya!

beacullen said...

Wow, what great news! I'm so happy for them all. They deserve all the accolades. I can't wait to see both of these movies myself lol. And I would reallly love to see Rob and Kristen show up together, stop in front of a camera and totally suck face while simutaneoulsy flipping the bird for all the hateful assholes out there. Hey it could happen lol. Happy Friday Roseland, and thanks Rose! keep Twirling.

Em said...

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning Roseland

Well life is never dull ... I got called back to work at 2 am... Just settled in at a local restaurant for my favorite breakfast here and hope to enjoy the rest of my weekend

Em. Sleep well

Have a great weekend everybody!

Litmom said...

Bless your heart, dear. Rest up. I can relate...my mom was an RN. Worked in the hospital (recevery room and floor supervisor) for 25+ years, then taught nursing in a Vocational program for 20+ years, so she was on the floor with her students daily. She started nursing in 1946 and retired in 1990. Exhausting work, but I can't imagine anything any more rewarding. Thanks for all you do.

Em, honey. Life can throw crappy stuff at you from time to time, but your friends can help you through it! Hang in there!

Litmom said...

*reCOVery*...sorry. I really can spell; I'm an English teacher, for goodness sakes!

Litmom said...

And my math doesn't add up. Should be 20+ years and 20+ years. Sorry. Okay, I'm done now...

Super RN Gas Passer said...


As I always say I have the utmost respect for the teaching profession...lol.... I sure couldn't do it!!!!

Have. Great weekend:-)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Oops...Have A Great Weekend!

Em said...

Super thanks I got like n hour so not bad lol I gotta run drop someone off happy weekend

Freddie said...

Hi everybody,

I'm just popping in quickly to wish everyone a good weekend.

Take care.

DreamerKind said...

Sweet Sunday morning!

What a time I've had, watching the future DIL trying on wedding gowns. Then there was some celebrating and laughing. I am very tired but content.

Wishing you all a fine day.

Back again soon.

ali mac said...

DK glad you had such fun Wedding dress shopping, it is so much fun and very emotional :0)

Have a great Sunday everyone <3

ali mac said...

ps Dk only just noticed it's a new hat lol

Litmom said...

Awww - DK!
What a special time. So glad you were able to be a part of the dress shopping! Did she find one? I assume so if you all celebrated!

Happy Sunday to all!

Rhonda said...

Morning all, happy Sunday...

I hope everyone is enjoying a nice weekend. It's cool and rainy here. Makes it a lazy day for me.

DK- that sounds like fun. Did she find the perfect dress? Love the new hat too :)

Em- I'm good, sweets. Thanks for asking. We'll talk food soon ;)

Litmom- I just read that you're a teacher. Such a great, admirable, profession. We have several here in Roseland...you're in good company :)

Leni said...

DK - so happy for you and the future DIL! Did she find the perfect dress?
(Oh and I love that hat!)

Have a great day everyone :)

Litmom said...

Hi Rhonda!
Yes; High School English, Special Education. I collaborate with a Gen Ed teacher for 4 periods a day, and have one self contained class a day. Love it, but I'm SO ready for Summer!

Dottie said...

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a fun week end. It's beautiful here - just a little chilly.

DK - thanks for sharing the wedding fun w/us. Such a special time!

Em said...

Rhonda said...

Litmom- awww, I have a soft spot for Special Education teachers because one of my nephews is a Special Ed student. I can't begin to tell you what a difference she's made in his overall learning/development. Thanks for all you do :)

Em- lol sounds like great fun. I'm glad your having a good weekend ;)

DreamerKind said...

Good afternoon Roselanders!

Thanks for asking everyone, but J hasn't picked a wedding dress yet.
We were celebrating the engagement and "just girls only" shopping.

There are two top gowns that are very beautiful. One has the "wow" factor for me (ballgown), and maybe for her. The other is very fitted and elegant. She'll go one more bridal place and then decide.

Remember Cinderella's wedding gown in the Disney original? That is what I mean by "wow". You are all, right about it being emotional and wonderful!

:) Glad you like this other hat, too.

Take really good care of yourself, for we care about you, really.

Yes, thanks for choosing Special Ed teaching. You've changed the lives of so many I'm certain.

Litmom said...

DK, Rhonda -
I've been doing it since '79. Boy, have I seen changes in the field! Four more years, and maybe I'll retire. (I'll probably just sub after that - I would probably have a hard time NOT being in the classroom)

Em said...

Dreamer thanks ur really sweet n i am sorry for deleting that lol don't wanna get in trouble but I'm tired people left n haven't really slept much so I'm gonna crash. I hope u have a good night bye

Teeth said...

Idk if anyone's posted about this yet, but I just saw a Snow White and the Huntsman preview!

I'm excited!

Teeth said...

*On tv! Lol

DreamerKind said...

Time flies so fast when having fun, like R & K did at Coachella, even though I wasn't there, just looking at pics, and playing Florence, Radiohead and other bands. Life is good!

Back with tunes later Monday. Cheers all.

ali mac said...

ANGELICA Happy St Georges day to you :0) (I'm guessing you are English?)
