Robert Pattinson Slams James Dean


Robert Pattinson says in a new interview that legendary movie star James Dean tried to copy Marlon Brando, who was the better actor. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, Pattinson stars as photographer Dennis Stock in the upcoming movie Life, which is based on the friendship that developed between Stock and James Dean when they embarked on a road trip together in the early 1950s as part of a magazine profile.

Dane DeHaan portrays Dean in the film, and Pattinson admits that the co-stars would often fight because Pattinson insisted that Brando was the better actor. “I always got into arguments with Dane about this because he thinks [Dean and Brando] are kind of on the same lines, and I think they’re fundamentally different,” Pattinson says. The actor continues, “I was more of a Brando person than a Dean person,” adding, “I mean James Dean was just trying to be Brando [laughs].”

Nevertheless, you can catch Pattinson acting alongside the movie version of Dean when Life hits theaters, as well as Video-On-Demand, on December 4. Watch the video below in which Pattinson chooses sides in the age-old rivalry between James Dean and Marlon Brando, and tell Gossip Cop what you think.
