That role came along in the form of Little Ashes, a movie that focuses on the lives of artist Salvador Dali, writer Federico Garcia Larca and filmmaker Luis Bunuel.
When Kimmel was growing up, he wanted to be an artist - so you would think that his childhood idols would be somewhere along the lines of Matisse, VanGogh or Dali.
The movie is set in 1922 and Robert Pattinson takes on the role of a young Salvador Dali, who is just setting out on his path to find himself.
According to the Sunday Mercury, Pattinson says that playing Dali was "The first part I've had that has required really serious thought."
'The same sequence of phases is represented in sculpture by the votive statues from the sanctuaries of Aphrodite at Dali and of Apollo at V6ni and Frangissa; and by examples from other sites in the Cesnola collection; in painting by a rare class of naively polychromic vases; and in both by the elaborately coloured terra-cotta figures from the "Toumba" site at Salamis.
Diimmler opened tombs at Dali, Alambra and elsewhere, and laid the foundations of knowledge of the Bronze Age and Early Iron Age; 17 and Richter, on behalf of officials and private individuals, excavated parts of Frangissa (Tamassus), Episkopi and Dali.18 In the same year, 1885, and in 1886, a syndicate opened many tombs at Poli-tis-Khrysochou (Marium, Arsinoe), and sold the contents by auction in Paris.
