Robert Pattinson does not believe in true love

BERLIN: British actor Robert Pattinson does not believe in true love, he said at the Berlin Film Festival on Friday, in contrast to the lovestruck pioneer he portrays in the western comedy period film “Damsel.”
Directed by David and Nathan Zellner, “Damsel” stars Pattinson as the wealthy Samuel Alabaster who traverses the Wild West in search of his love Penelope, played by Australian actress Mia Wasikowska.
“Do I believe in true, pure love? No. No, I think it’s, yeah, I mean it’s obviously more complicated,” he said at a news conference after the screening.
Pattinson, the “Twilight” heartthrob turned independent film actor, said the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct felt like a watershed moment both on and off screen.
“I think if you feel that you’ve been wronged and you feel like you’ve been bullied into silence, it’s one of the most awful feelings in the world,” he told reporters after the screening of “Damsel” in competition at the 11-day event.
“It’s kind of amazing when any kind of dam breaks and people feel like they’ve got the numbers to say ‘you’ll be safe to say whatever’s happened to you’.
“A lot of these kind of conversations kind of mirror what we’re trying to say on the screen.”

Farah the Falcon swoops in to predict World Cup results, but will Saudi Arabia win?

  • More than half her predictions have been accurate, although she was wrong about Egypt
  • Now see her make her swoop for the next Saudi Arabian match

DUBAI: South Africa’s World Cup had Paul the Octopus in 2010, Brazil’s World Cup had Big Head the loggerhead turtle in 2014, now Russia’s World Cup has Farah the Falcon.

However, the feathered flyer predicted Egypt to come out triumphant in Tuesday night’s game against host’s Russia - but the outcome was the opposite.

Farah guessed Saudi Arabia would lose its second game at the tournament against Uruguay on Wednesday.

It has been a rough group stage for Arab nations with all four countries losing their games so far.

Swooping in from her perch on the arm of her trainer, Farah – who is sponsored by UAE-based radio station Dubai Eye – glides towards one of two wooden flags bearing the colors of the countries playing against each other.

The flag she lands on is her predicted winner for the game.

So far, 10 of the 17 games played have been predicted correctly – with two of those ending in draws and seven ending with the predicted winner actually losing. This makes her accuracy at 58.8 percent.

Tunisia is predicted to lose its games on Saturday against Belgium, with Morocco set to suffer the same fate against Portugal on Wednesday according to the feathered foreseer.

Paul the Octopus was the most famous of the animal predictors, predicting 12 out of 14 matches correctly with an accuracy of 85.7 percent.
