Sometimes, all you need is to feel the mundane vulgarity of a normal life. That is what star Robert Pattinson craves for in his short film for GQ: a bit of normal materialized in the shape of an infamous NYC hot dog.

Written, directed and starred by the actor, whose claim to fame as the main character in a series of teen flicks made him a bait for paparazzi and avid fans. The film manages to squeeze in sadness, terror, humor and happiness, thanks to the purposely exagerated voiceover, altogether resulting in a small gesture of brilliance that enables us to take a peek at the desperate, unglamorous side of Hollywood fame.
