Tom Cruise Los Angeles, Aug 23 (IANS) It was Robert Pattinson’s “charismatic” persona that ended up getting him the lead part in David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis”.

Cronenberg reveals the “Twilight” actor’s personality played a big part in him being cast in the drama movie, reports contactmusic.com.

“I’m completely aware of all of those elements and also, of course, when you’re making a movie that for an independent movie was relatively expensive, you have to have a leading character who is very charismatic and who can carry the weight and has the star quality and so on, because you’re going to be looking at him,” said Cronenberg.

“He’s literally in every scene in the movie, and that’s pretty unusual. I mean even in Tom Cruise movies, Tom is not in absolutely every scene of the movie - but Rob (Pattinson) is. So he has to have that,” said Cronenberg.

“Cosmopolis”, released in the US Aug 17, also stars Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti.
