What is amazing vampire sex like, how od the three of them interact, and looking back over the years.
Robert Pattinson talks advice to his younger self, enjoying the crazy, the fear of it being over.
Great footage here to hear it word for word. You can also read it here if the player is slow.
The footage should go live circa 8:00pm
Rob is up next
LOL Rob just looked at baackground screen oddly…no idea why
So what do you think this whole expeerience mean in retrospect
Back on teh first movie people were aksing me how I would feel when it ends
It’s going to take 10 years to settle in my brain
I’m bewildered that it’s ending
I don’t even tthink fans and Stephenie know why they connect to it
If he could go back in time what advice would you give yourself
Drink vodka not beer
Get a 6 pack as early as possible and you’ll be a much more successful actor
I don’t know it’s actually great gett ing the terror and the actual surprises
We visited Germany in Olypic stadium and thousaunds were there screaming how do you prepare for that
What was the last scen he filmed
beach in St Thomas
It was hilarious that we end in tropica; beach after spending so much time in cold pacific northwest
Was sad to let Edward go, up until last shot found Edward frustrating and confusing on how to play it right
I needed to find teh falibility and weaknesses and play that. Hard because so many have their unique ideas
Best thing to leave behind saddest to leave behind
Sad to not play a well know character again and to keep going at a character. Having new directors stopped him from getting lazy with it
Worst part playing a part where you can’t hurt or die how do you relate to that and was struggle on how to hit that tone
How will Twilight impact career
You can’t be afraid of typacsting I hope peopel accept me as other things I get offered other roles
Hopefully in 10 years peopel remember it well
It will be amazing if this tenacious fanbase is teh same in 10 years
On first film
We were all new it shaped us
Going forward is this level of success on this film intimidating on a career level
I would like more control on my public image.
It’s impossible apart from Denzel Washington to control your success (jokes) you take what comes
Superheroes are garanteed big money but thats not always fulfilling
Sometimes many small roles are fulfilling but even times you’ll get cut from any picture
there are no guarantees
Is he glad it’s over
As soon as someone says franchise it has negative connotation Burger King is a franchise it’s scary as an actor you feel like you have no control
On fame is he bigger in UK than here
It’s relatively similar
He says he gets more abuse in UK press it’s cultural
I like working with kids and animals and everyone says you shouldn’t but I like it because they are so natuarl you feel like you aren’t acting. Liked being onscreen dad
On other vamp franchises
Really liked Blade, he’s not perse a vamp fan like zombie movies instead. He says (jokes) it’s more like being a pyscolocal problem
Really like on BD2 Rami Malek’s Bejamin character calls Rami a great actor
First time meeting Taylor and Kristen
Taylor: I remember him that wig (rolls his eyes)
When I was on Potter I remember Dan Rupert and Emma and thinking they are actors and I’m not and I was starstruck because of inexperience. Was a bit star struck of Kristen. He’s still starstruck on the Potter trio
It was so intimidating back then with people losing their mind over a casting announcement
E1 is doing a whole Twilight retrospective over the years. Ccheck out this bit on Robert Pattinson:
In the summer of 2007, unfamiliar with the Twilight books, if not the debate over who was the most worthy Edward, Pattinson was off the Hollywood grid.
“I was going to quit [acting] because I never got any jobs,” he would recall on Today, “so I guess it’s not really quitting when you’re not getting jobs—it’s just surrendering to fate.”
At the end of the year, however, Pattinson was in Los Angeles, and while he wasn’t exactly keen on Edward Cullen, he was game. He agreed to read with the actress who’d been cast as Bella.
And everything changed.
