USA Today: How Rob, Kristen, and Taylor Keep the Twilight Machine Rolling

robkristayusaoprahUSA Today was able to interview Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner when they were in Chicago for the Oprah show.

“Dashingly disheveled Robert Pattinson has an infectious, high-pitched laugh that would never do for his seductive vampire lover-boy, Edward Cullen.

Buff-and-polished Taylor Lautner is pocket-size compared with the looming stature of his werewolf counterpart, Jacob Black.

Casual yet cool Kristen Stewart can be a real chatterbox, unlike her moody Bella Swan, the high schooler in a romantic tug of war between these two supernatural objects of teen desire.

Lucky girl, right? “Yeah, but that’s in the movies,” Stewart says about bringing to life the modern-day Gothic heroine from the insanely popular Twilight book series (85 million copies sold so far). “I’m just the ultimate fan. If you read a story and you like it andconnect to it, it probably means you’ve inserted yourself in the story, and I get to do that on the most glorified level possible.”

  1. I totally agree with Kristen. That’s why I love the twilight series, becasue I realate to Bella or Kristen and that was before Twilight was huge. I read the books before they had the actors in it. I had to picture it myself and I think that’s why I could relate to it so well. The only part you can’t relate to the story is the vampires and the werewolves. You feel like you are her and that’s why I love it so much. 🙂

  2. Breaking Dawn in 3D?
    Umm… No.

  3. That was a great interview. I love how Rob, Kristen, and Taylor get along. You can just “hear” that they do and I love that. And that pic is total WIN!!!

  4. I love how thier conversations flow so.. natuarally and they get along so well. Ohh yeah, i’m a be mad if breaking dawn in made in 3D .. i just can’t imagine it!

  5. This was actually a good interview! NO repetitive stuff

    • yea, finally some new info. i was disappointed with the oprah interview. it was just the same old questions. i hope there will be more articles like this usa today one where they delve a little more into new areas.

  6. Great interview!

    Relieved it wasn’t Taylor’s hand on Rob’s leg. 🙂

    I’m actually very impressed that Rob & Kristen don’t talk about their relationship in public. After all, a relationship like theirs is, in a sense, the very definition of “private.” Glad they aren’t, you know, milking it for all its worth or whatever. God bless them.

    Thanks, Lex! Extra ad clicks today!

    Robert and Kristen are very funny!!!!! Love both of them…It’s better that they should not talk in public their relationship.. because some people in Hollywood will just messed up everything…

  8. I’m glad they don’t discuss their relationship either. We’ve seen too many Hollywood couples break up because they talk non-stop about their partners. Glad to see a young couple like Robert and Kristen with good heads on their shoulders,to know how to keep their private life to themselves. Loved the Oprah interview and the new footage from Eclipse.

  9. sorry for the o/t but, is rob going to be in cannes? thanks!

  10. It’s really obvious how much this amazing trio has grown and evolved from the first movie…Kristen especially, who seems alot more comfortable in interviews now.
    And Rob, who’s handling his It-Guy status with his usual sense of humour and groundedness.
    Not to mention Taylor who is showing alot of maturity for an 18-year-old heartthrob.
    And I think I speak for all of Twi-Fandom when I say that it’s really gratifying to see how much the three of them each enjoyed the books and interpreted their roles so beautifully to make the movies such a richly enjoyable experience for the fans!

    Thanks to the Twi-o for keeping the ‘well-oiled machine’ going…can’t wait for the Eclipse-related junkets, talkshows, premiere appearances, etc and to follow them in their careers AND of course, the Breaking Dawn stuff which will ensue very soon!!!

      You covered it all, janelene! I love how much all three of them care. Taylor has said that when he plays Jacob, he feels like he is Jacob. Kristen has said that she’s a true fan of the books several times. And while Rob has never claimed to be a fan, he clearly takes the role very seriously. We fans really lucked out with these three.

  11. I just watched the Oprah show on YouTube on Sunday.
    Rob, Kristen, and Taylor are just a unique trio of actors. You can see the bond that the three of them share.
    It was one of their best television appearances that they did. My favorite question was when they were asked what they do on a Saturday night.
    But my favorite part was when Rob went to the peoples’ houses. He felt like he was breaking into the one house. LOL! Also when Taylor went to the soriety house.
