My amazing Twitter pal and blogger over at Robert Pattinson UK sent this little surprise to my email today! It’s a short interview that Jamie Campbell Bower did with Glamour UK where he talks about being sent weird things on the Breaking Dawn set, paparazzi and more. You can check out the transcript below too or click to enlarge:
Monitor: Arise, Sir Jamie Meet the star of this month’s TV must see, Camelot – Jamie Campbell Bower. If JCB, 22, isn’t on your radar, he soon will be. The Harry Potter and Twilight star is about to take the role of King Arthur in a coming-of-age re-telling of the legend of Camelot.
On doing bootcamp for his role in Camelot:
“I’m usually not one for physical exertion, but I didn’t tell the producers that before I got the part of King Arthur. The cast did a month of bootcamp – it was f*cking awful. But we really banded together; this over-powering masculinity suddenly kicked in.
On his style:
I’ve always had the same look: Skinny jeans and long T-shirts. Bonnie [Wright, Jamie's fiancee and Harry Potter co-star] likes me in suits, but it’s very difficult to get me into one.
On doing his own stunts for Camelot:
I did my own stunts on Camelot……until I broke my ankle during a fight sequence. We were in a little valley in Ireland, and it took hald an hour for the ambluance to get there, and another 45 minutes to get to the hospital.
On his band:
I’ve been a musican longer than I’ve been an actor. My band are recording an EP soon. Our sound is Biffy Clyro meets Muse. We call it slacker pop.
I rarely get papped. It’s only when I’m surrounded by a hundred 14-year-old girls that I get recognised.
Gifts from fans:
I get sent weird stuff. When we were filming Breaking Dawn, I got a note that started with, “Dear Jamie, I’m not insane,” and then went onto say some very sexually explicit stuff. She’d sent it along with three wheels of cheese, a bondage collar and some nipple clamps.
To celebrate the release of Water For Elephants, starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, we’re giving away a money-can’t-buy meet and greet with R-Patz himself!
In cinemas Wednesday 4 May and directed by Francis Lawrence, Water For Elephants is the tale of veterinary school student Jacob (Pattinson) who meets and falls in love with Marlena (Witherspoon), a star performer in a circus of a bygone era.
Against all odds – including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August (Christoph Waltz) – they discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top circus, and come together through their compassion for a special elephant.
To celebrate the release of this spectacular must-see film, we’re offering you the chance to meet Robert Pattinson before the London premiere on the 3 May.
To celebrate the release of Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon’s new movie Water For Elephants, we’re giving you the chance to walk the red carpet at the London premiere along with all the A-list!
The premiere is held at the Westfield shopping centre in London on Tuesday 3 May – the day before the film’s UK cinema release on May 4th.
But before the premiere, we’ve teamed up with London’s vintage clothing store Beyond Retro so that the winner and a friend can get kitted out in vintage clothes – with the help of the store stylist – so they’ll fit right into the film’s glam 1930s feel.
We’re even throwing in £100 spending money so you can treat yourself to a classic cocktail before you hit the red carpet with the stars!

The always beautiful Anna Kendrick was featured in Glamour UK Magazines 10th Birthday issue where she was whisked away to Paris to shoot her spread. We posted the scans here in case you missed them. Below, Anna’s makeup artist for the shoot talks about what it was like working with the Breaking Dawn starlet:
For UK Glamour Magazines 10th Birthday issue (can’t quite believe its been 10 years!) I was asked to make-up super cute American actress Anna Kendrick for their fabulous ‘An American in Paris’ shoot. We were all excited by the prospect of photographing the ‘Twilight’ and ‘Up InThe Air’ star in some of the most famous cafes, shops, streets and landmarks only to discover the forecast was for freezing temperatures, wind and rain! As predicted the first day was made difficult by torrential rain and freezing winds but luckily Anna was a complete trouper and an absolute delight.
Thankfully the second day was much drier in the afternoon so we managed to get most of the outdoor shots done. The mainstay of the make-up for all the shots were cute, flirty eyelashes and kitten flick liner. I changed the lips and cheeks depending on the mood of the photo and the outfit Anna was wearing. The lip colour went from nude to baby pink to bright rosy pink to full-on red!
Anna and I sneaked into Annick Goutals boutique in-between shots to try out all the delicious scents (and escape from the cold!). Smart and funny, she made the shoot a great one for all of us.
