Robert Pattinson on Twilight in Premiere Magazine

There’s finally a good translation up of the full interview conducted in the French publication. Lots of sites are taking partial quotes and words out of context. We’ve seen everything from “Robert Pattinson says Twilight movies are total crap, to Robert Pattison thanks Cronenberg for saving career”…read and judge for yourself. Here’s some of what Robert Pattinson actually had to say (unedited) about the Twilight experience, but the entire interview is well worth the read.

P: I recommend David to see the last Twilight movie, that is almost ‘Cronenbergian’ at some times …

RP: *laughs* I can’t believe there’s still one more to come (Breaking Dawn Pt 2 is out November 14th) and I have some reshoots to do in a few days.

P: You thought Twilight was behind you?

RP: Yes, I’m not the same as I was at the beginning. First, I’m older … When I have to go on the makeup chair, I see all those wrinkles that came with time, it’s scary. I thickened/filled out too. Since I didn’t have any clothes when we shot the first movie, I stole some from the movie when we done and I can fit any them anymore!

PREMIERE: The Cosmopolis teaser had the effect of a bomb on the internet…

ROB: I’ve been doing movie for 8 years & I’ve been criticized often & all of a sudden, this teaser is released & everyone is excited. “It looks great! His acting is good in it!” It’s ridiculous! It’s what makes you understand how the critical mind of some people work.

PREMIERE: Most of the critics said you sucked without having seen you in any movies. And you were good in Twilight!

ROB: In some scenes maybe… I tried anyway.. I’d like to ask a question to those people who think I just started acting well: What do you think I was doing in twilight? Do they think it’s how I act naturally? No, I had to take decisions as an actor. I find it funny when I read stuff like (He uses a dramatic voice) “Will Cosmopolis finally prove that he can act?” What does that even mean?

  1. I thought Rob did great in Twilight series, its the darn scripts I hated…I think they will all go on to do great things, Twilight was just the springboard that shot them forward….I know some will argue they were actors before, but truth is, they are recognized all over the world because of Twilight, not for the other movies they were where its due. I will forever love these books and hate the series is through…:( I recently started Fifty Shades of Gray, and we aren’t in Forks anymore…( I sorta loved Twilight was more PG and could be shared easily with children…

  2. Why does it say that itll be out in movembeer 14 ? Did i miss something ?

  3. Christina says:

    He’s not a bad actor. He knows this and we know this. I feel like he was slightly defensive in this interview, and that makes me sad, because he doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. He’s awesome. He’s ridiculously hot. Let the haters hate. They’re all ugly anyway.

  4. Lynne Stringer says:

    That’s a very good interview. He has a good grasp on the ridiculous criteria some critics have.
