It’s like looking at a rock. It can be simple or complicated.
Robert Pattinson (On Cosmpolis) 
To me, Eric is someone who feels like he belongs to another reality, who lives as if he was born on an other planet, and who tries to discover in which reality he should be living. In fact, he doesn’t understand the world as it is.

I was appealed by the writing of the script, like a kind of long poem. And a mysterious poem too.
Robert Pattinson (about Cosmopolis - production notes 2012)
You can see in the film, as well as in the book, that his approach of financial data tends to project him in the future, so much so that he doesn’t know how to live in the present anymore. He probably grasps the workings of the real world somehow, but only in peculiar and obscure ways.
Robert Pattinson (about his character: Eric Parker - Cosmopolis production notes, 2012)
From the beginning of the shooting, I sort of lived inside the film, and inside the car: I was always there, it was my home, and I welcomed the other actors in my space, sitting tight on this kind of captain’s chair, with everybody visiting me.

I thought I’d never worked with a director of that level. Often the fame does not help. Instead he called me.
