Emilie de ravin and robert pattinson dating
Despite their 'I'm-so-normal' façade, journalists are warned not to ask about their private lives on pain of death.
A hovering publicist peers up from her Black Berry at the mere hint of a personal question to de Ravin (it could be worse: no less than three handlers accompany Pattinson during his interview).
"Love is such an objective thing," she says, in a suitably vague answer to a necessarily vague question about love. It's chemistry." Either way, if she's in love when we meet, there is no ring on her finger.
"I mean, I can say I love my family, or I love my Diet Coke," she continues, gesturing towards her Coke can. Of course she was romantically linked to Pattinson during filming, but RPattz could star opposite Ellen De Generes and there would be rumours.
"She's really cool," says Pattinson, pushing back his James Dean-esque mane, when we meet later that afternoon.
"She was actually the last girl we saw and she was cast on the day of her audition, so we went straight out to a bar.
"New York is a character in the film," she smiles, either not noticing or not caring what a cliché that is.
"It was great to be able to walk around the city on days off.
When we have dinner, we were actually in The Oak Room and when we were doing a scene in the house Ally [her character] grew up in, that was in Queens." Of course, the downside of shooting around the city is that Twilight fans and paparazzi had easy access to locations. "We shot 90 per cent on location in Manhattan or Queens so it was very accessible. So it was difficult for Rob and I to figure out the logistics of a rehearsal when you've got thousands of people watching.
You'll most likely recognise the Australian actress de Ravin as the young mother Claire in Lost (currently in its explosive sixth series on Sky1), but her association with Pattinson has catapulted her into the celebrity weeklies.
When we meet in New York, where the film is set, a blizzard is raging outside the hotel window.
Even if you're not looking at them, you're aware of it. "We're filming the next episode in a few days and I don't even have that script yet. With films, you have time to read the script properly and rehearse.
It can be hard to focus." It must have been a very different experience from filming Lost in the relative seclusion of Hawaii. You can develop a back-story and, by the time you start shooting, you know everything you need to.
