Hugh Jackman Explains the Karaoke in Japan Robert Pattinson Connection

Remember back in February 2009, when Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Kristen Stewart went to Japan to promote the original Twilight? Well at the time there was this rumor that they met up with Hugh Jackman who was in town at the same time promoting his film Australia.

Now personally, for all you Rob and Kristen fans out there. I always though the trip was far more memorable for this Q & A, especially since the couple was only an onscreen couple at the time. The key is the 3:35 mark or so when Kristen gets asked how was it kissing Robert Pattinson/ She’s got a great answer and Rob’s face is priceless.

Sunday Morning Herald Interviews Robert Pattinson

Sydney, Australia’s Sunday Morning Herald has an interview done with Rob back at the Cannes Film Festival that they are now allowed to release. Rob covers it all from Twilight to upcoming projects with Hugh Jackman:

“I don’t really need to do stuff to relax or get away because all my interests are part of my job. Like I’ll watch movies to be inspired to do other movies. I read books to be inspired. I listen to music to be inspired to write music. Everything I do is to create something.”

Pattinson’s next film is Unbound Captives. He met Jackman in Japan recently for a little bonding ahead of the film. “We went karaoke singing,” he laughs. “We were singing Abba songs, it was pretty funny. It was sort of an Abba song sing-off, you know, last man standing.”

Who won? “I think he did, only because he can drink more than me and still sing in tune. He’s a cool guy and I’m really looking forward to that film.”

Hugh Jackman Gives Thumbs Up To Rob’s Singing

In Italy to promote his upcoming film, High Jackman was asked by what he thought of Robert Pattinson’s singing the night they met in Japan. For those of you who don’t remember, right after the Oscars Rob, Kristen, and Taylor went to Japan for the Twilight movie release there. Hugh Jackman, who was there at the same time for the Australia movie release, was staying at their hotel and they all ended up doing Karaoke in the bar (oh to have been a fly on that wall).
