By now, most of you are probably familiar with "Little Ashes," the small independent film that Robert Pattinson shot months before he embarked on his star-making "Twilight" experience. In the movie, Pattinson plays famed painter Salvador Dalí who, according to "Little Ashes," engaged in a homosexual relationship with poet Federico García Lorca (disputed by Dalí in real life).
To his credit, Pattinson went full out on the role, even adopting the artist's iconic mustache, which has now become as talked about as the film itself. And that brings us to Out Magazine's screening of "Little Ashes" here in New York City this week. As you'll see...they did a little something special to pay tribute to Pattinson.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Pattinson's hotness levels on a scale of 1-10 are pretty even at about 15.2.

I was 11 years old when "Titanic" was released, and sadly, I've found that I have not grown up one bit as I swoon over RPattz with the same intensity (my co-workers and anyone who passes by my desk can vouch for this). Read More...
If you haven’t already, be sure to head over to the MTV Movies page to see our two new exclusive clips from “Little Ashes,” the eagerly-anticipated Robert Pattinson drama that hits theaters next month. After months of reading about the film and studying the trailers closely, the scenes give us our best look yet at the transformation of RPatttz.
I’ve gotta say: I’m pretty impressed. As much as we all love to talk about Rob around these parts, the fact is that little is known about his actual acting talents. He was fine in the “Harry Potter” films, and obviously got the job done in “Twilight,” but until an actor has the chance to show off some versatility, it’s hard to speculate on his long-term prospects.

That's right folks, get an extended look at "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson in one of his first dramatic leading man roles, as legendary artist Salvador Dali in the film "Little Ashes."
