I want him to star in a movie for me.”
Weinstein also said Robert “has agreed to do something extraordinary. … I think there is no dad who wouldn’t mind Robert Pattinson meeting his daughter, taking a picture with his daughter and just giving her a gentle kiss on the cheek. Somebody in London, New York or L.A. “” there’s got to be a dad good enough to bid on that.”
