Inside, Dave Calhoun speaks to the 23-year-old star about the pressures of fame and the craft of acting, which he describes as the hardest thing he's ever done in his life.

In the rest of the issue, living legend Dennis Hopper speaks to Tim Blanks about his new collection of photography and the counterculture of the 1960s. Alex Marashian talks to David de Rothschild, the environmental activist, about his inspirational new project at the Pacific Trash Vortex. Sam Taylor-Wood speaks about her new feature length John Lennon biopic, Nowhere Boy. World renowned dancer and choreographer Michael Clark explains his New Work project, which features music from David Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. There are also groundbreaking fashion stories by the world’s top stylist and photographers, including Alister Mackie, Norbert Schoerner, Gareth McConnell, Bryan McMahon and Serge Leblon.

“AnOther Man speaks to the ‘other’ man, a man not being catered to currently by fashion magazines. AnOther Man mixes credible modern icons with art, music, high impact fashion photography and strong opinionated writing by key cultural voices. A magazine for men who like their lifestyle rocked with passion and intelligence, luxury and a sense of adventure.”
Editor In Chief, Jefferson Hack

Here is an excerpt from the Robert Pattinson feature written by Dave Calhoun.

Was Pattinson aware of the loyalty of fans of the Twilight books? It looks like the sort of obsessive fandom that can turn into anger and even hatred when an adaptation isn’t to their liking. Did he know what he was letting himself in for? “It’s strange because even though the figures show that the books were successful and sold millions of copies, you couldn’t even buy them in London. I tried a couple of bookshops and they weren’t available. Hardly anyone I knew had read them apart from one girl, a friend of my sister. I had no idea at all. I’d seen Kristen Stewart in Into the Wild and some of the director Catherine Hardwicke’s other films, and that’s all I thought it was, something really small.”

His manner is very laid-back. He doesn’t sound thrusting or ambitious, more like he’s just going with the flow and enjoying things. Is he going to harness his newfound fame and box-office appeal to approach the kind of filmmakers he wants to work with in the future? He’s not so sure. “Annoyingly, there are so few parts I feel I can add anything to, or that I want to do.” But he knows what he doesn’t need. “I don’t want to be an actor for the sake of it. I don’t find any particular pleasure in being an attention-seeker.”

Issue Nine of AnOther Man will be on sale in the UK on October 1
