One of the VERY first videos I watched of you was the Myspace artist on artist conversation between you and Hayley Williams from Paramore, and it’s still to this day one of my favorite interviews of you EVER. So, I’ll be honest I was worried that your artist on artist interview with Pierce Brosnan might not live up. It’s not going to go down in history as my favorite Rob interview EVER, but there was some great stuff here:

First of all, can we discuss your outfit? Gray (is that a slight pinstripe?) dress pants and a white T-shirt? What is that? Marks & Spencer store brand? Did you show up in sweatpants and a t-shirt (your PJs of choice) on this morning and the Myspace people were like, “No way. Not gonna cut it?” Did they look around everywhere for another outfit option and only came up with the pants from the gaffer #3? Some poor guy is standing behind the camera, holding the microphone, pantsless (I’m sure you offered your sweatpants once you realized what the Myspace people were doing. However…. I’m gonna guess the gaffer took one look at those haven’t-been-washed-in-3-months sweatpants and said he’s rather just hang out in his whitey tights for awhile.)
How cute was it that Pierce watched the movie with his entire family? Were you pissed? You seemed shocked that he saw the film before you did. I mean, you’re the executive producer! By the way, what does that mean? Did you give them a little seed money in exchange for the right to tell Summit- hell NO I’m not letting you promote this movie saying “Edward Cullen finds himself a new “Bella” and they eat “Italiano off each other”? I think it’s great. You’re all grown up- from vampire to executive producer. From sweatpants and a tshirt to pinstripe gray dresspants stolen off a poor union worker! I’m so proud.
When you guys discussed your favorite scene, you both laughed. It wasn’t a “Remember that hilarious scene we did together” kind of laugh (cuz I hear its not so much of a hilarious movie). I’m feeling there’s a story there. Come on, you can tell me. What happened? Did Pierce fart one time right after the director said “Action?” Did Tyler break into a British accent which caused his Brooklyn raised dad to start talking Irish? Did you guys get pissed at each other and throw steaks at the Oak room? Did something happen with Emile sex-related? Did you guys have a threesome?
I know Pierce played your dad in the film, but I was kinda surprised to see the father-son relationship you had during the interview. I hope Dick doesn’t see it- he might get a little jealous. First there was the excitement the ‘dad’ had for his “son’s” new job. Pierce seemed so proud of you about Bel Ami (and also a little like he wanted to take you out for beers and ask for details on all the beautiful woman you mentioned!) Then he starts asking you about the “vampire piece” you have coming out. It’s so cute. It’s like you’re in college, home on spring break, and your dad is asking you about something he doesn’t understand- your philosophy class or something. Then he starts imparting wisdom on you about how the studio will try to drag out the series even longer than just the 4 books. He shares his experience, “Well, back in my day when I waked through ice, snow & sleet to school… there were only 7 books- but that didn’t matter.” And you’re SO interested! “There were only 7 books!? So Connery did most of the books?” I see the wheels turning your head. You’re thinking you’re like Connery. You’re proud that this “dad” figure is comparing you to Connery. Or to himself. Like maybe Pierce sees a little bit of himself in you! And whoa- that’s something. Cuz Pierce Brosnan isn’t just any dad. He’s a dad who has hooked up with the hottest women EVER. He’s…. well, JAMES BOND. Poor Dick… he doesn’t stand a chance. When choosing between James Bond or a car salesman for a father figure, he knows who you’re gonna choose…..
So while it wasn’t Hayley Williams, cokes around a table & jokes about southern accents, it was pretty cute. However, I think I wanna watch this one again… just to reminisce:

PS- I missed you at the Oscars last night. The experience was… much less satisfying. I actually WATCHED the awards (read: got drunk on champagne) instead of scanning the crowd constantly for any sign of you
Also, I’d like to take a moment of silence for the following adorable pictures:
Did you buy your Remember Me tickets yet? What are you waiting for!?
