Robert Pattinson is very proud of his latest film, Cosmopolis, which is premiering at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival. Directed by A History of Violence auteur David Cronenberg, Cosmopolis stars Pattinson as a Wall Street billionaire who embarks on an epic journey through Manhattan after venturing out in search of a quality haircut. It's based on a less-than-canonical novel by postmodern literary figure Don DeLillo.

Pattinson, who graces the latest cover of Premiere, told the magazine that Cosmopolis helped him shed his glittery Edward Cullen skin, grown thick after five Twilight films. "Filming Cosmopolis with Cronenberg changed something in me. It gave me balls," Pattinson told Premiere (via E! News). "Before, I spent my time doubting myself. As soon as I read a script that I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough. Now, I tell myself: 'F–k it! If they want to hire you, go!'"

Cosmopolis also stars Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, Sarah Gadon and Mathieu Amalric.
