Q: Now you have a sense of completition, five films out of four books. I’m curious.. are you allowing yourself any perspective? Do you see the value of all this?
Rob: It’s funny, people are asking me how I’d feel when it all ends when we were promo-ing the first movie. I’ve never felt more bewildered, knowing we only have a month let of Twilight stuff to do. i’ve said since the second one it’s going to take ten years to settle into my brain. I don’t think anyone knows why they connect with it the way they do. I don’t even know if Stephenie knows why she was so fixated on this very very contained story.
Q:: If you could go back in time five years, what kind of advice would you give yourself then to prepare what would happen in the next five years?
Rob: Start drinkign vodka instead of beer. And try to get a six pack (abs) as early as possible, and you’ll be a much more successful actor.
Rob: It’s kind of fun to deal with the terror and the huge highs and lows of things. I’ve never known – I’m still getting massive surprises any time we have a Twilight related event. When we went to Munich for the third movie, the entire olympic stadium was packed with 30k people screaming.
Q: This words keyword is “forever” – what is this in regards to?
Rob: Death? (laughs) No. Hope? That’s a difficult question
Q: What was your last scene for the films? and favorite fan encounter?
Rob: It was hilarious because we spent the entire series filming the most miserable conditions, then we end filming in St. Thomas. We did the last shot as the sun was coming up – it was amazing. It was a nice way to end it. We were considering shooting it in the sea in Vancouver which would have not worked at all (laughter)
Q: Were you sad to let Edward go?
Rob: Yeah, it’s very strange. The entire way through – up to the last shot – it’s a strange part because on one hand you have to have a lot of the audience project their idea of Edward. It doesn’t matter what I do sometimes, the fans want him a certain way. Then there are my instincts to find the fallibility and weaknesses in him. So you’re trying to play both these things at the same time. You’re trying to play someone who’s seen as playing this perfect thing.
Q: Whws mostdifficult thing to leave behind? And whatas best thing to leave behind?
Rob: It was great to have multiple films to get used to and get into the character. It’s good to have multiple chances. It’s bad on the other hand because your ideas dry up sometimes and you get lazy sometimes because you’re around the same people. That was the good thing about having different directors, so you could stay on your toes.
Q: This has obviously opened a lot of doors for you. How do you see it impacting your career ten, fifteen years down the road?
Rob: I don’t know – people ask if I’m afraid of getting typecast, but you can’t be afraid of it. It’s not up to you. I’m getting parts where I don’t play a vampire. I don’t know if people will accept me in them, but there’s really nothing to be afraid of it. But yeah, I have no idea in fifteen years – I don’t know how people will remember this series at all. It’s crazy how intense people are about this series. So I’m not sure how that will last, if there will be that tenacity in fifteen years.
Q: Was there any moment during filming that you’dl ike to relive and why?
Rob: The whole first movie was pretty fun. There was a good energy, people were fighting for it because they believed in it (the first film). So it felt like a big deal. It was really exciting, the first one. And the whole year afterwards.
Q: This franchise has given you a lot of success. Are you hoping to maintain that level of success as you go forward?
Rob: Well, I don’t know. If I could get any semblance, any more control, of m public image – that would be nice. No, it’s impossible to maintain this level of success apart from Denzel Washington (laughter). It’s a strange place where the film industry is at, where you could just play super hero after super hero. That seems to be the only guaranteed big money thing.
Q: At the end of the day, are you glad it’s over?
Rob: in some ways. As soon as someone refers to these movies as a franchise – a franchise is a Burger King, a Subway – the big guys love it when something like this becomes a franchise. As an actor, it’s scary. You really feel like you have no control. It’s a huge machine and it becomes part of the cultural landscape. It’s scary because you get trapped and you get scared of changing. And that’s the worst thing that can happen.
Q: Are you more famous in the UK than you are here? and if so, how?
Rob: I don’t know actually. I used to be able to be in England out in public and be fine – it came out in the U.S. first. I get a lot more abuse in England. That’s kind of just the general English attitude. It’s just your instinct (laughter)
Q: You looked like a natural stepping into the father role?
Rob: I quite like working with kids and animals, which everyone says you shouldn’t do. Because it makes you feel like you’re not acting – someone who’s just providing stuff to react to. Especially working with a baby. It’s great. I would say, but a dog or a baby in every scene – everything’s gonna be better. And if they’re not, just shoot the dog (laughter). They’ve got some good baby actors.
Q: and by shoot the dog, you mean…
Rob: Either way! (laughter)
Q: Do you watch any vampire films/shows?
Rob: I really like Blade. My favorite character in the new ones.. I like.. I Benjamin (the actor in BD 2). It was nice having actors who came in and were really enthusiastic. They were so excited about even five lines. I haven’t seen that many vampire films/shows. I’m not a non fan, but it’s an unusual thing to be a fan of. It’s like, “I love zombie movies. I love zombies. I just love them.” It’s more of a psychological problem. (laughter)
Q: Do you remember back i 2008 the first time you met Kristen and Taylor? I don’t mean to throw Taylor under the bus but he says he can’t remember meeting you.
Rob: Gee I don’t remember meeting him either. I met him when he was wearing his wig and stuff. I met Kristen at the Twilight audition. My impressions of them… I’m still just trying to come with terms of acknowledging being an actor at all. When I did Harry Potter, I remember looking at Dan, Rupert, and Emma and being like “Wow, those guys are actors” I was starstruck and I wanted to be one too. I was starstruck by Kristen too when we first met. With Dan, Rupert, and Emma, I still see them as massively famous people. It’s strange to have gone through the same experience with Taylor and Kristen as well. It’s massive.
ROBERT Pattinson‘s rekindled romance with Kristen Stewart is nothing more than a cynical ploy to bolster the success of the final Twilight movie Breaking Dawn, it has been claimed.
The pair recently got back together after they split following reports Kristen cheated on Rob with married director Rupert Sanders.
Rob and Kristen have been putting on a united front in recent days and are, seemingly, determined to prove to the world their romance is back on track.
They have been pictured together in bars and with friends, and today will make their first joint television appearance since their split.
But insiders have speculated about whether the reunion is genuine or just a “showmance” designed to ensure Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is a box office hit, according to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper.
Many believe industry bosses now want fans to focus on the film rather than the couple’s off-screen rift.
“This has come as a big surprise. New Line [the film studio behind Twilight] feel that a joint TV appearance will ease the impact on fans of their red carpet debut but not diminish the publicity,” a source said.
“In recent days Rob and Kristen have really shown their friendship is back on track. They are comfortable around one another and that inspired this brave move.
“Where they go as a couple after this still has to be seen.”
As a result of the massively successful Twilight Saga films, Robert Pattinson has transformed into a bigger star than he could ever have imagined.
And this week, it was widely reportedly by outlets including E!, The New York Daily News and USA Today that the young actor had landed a whopping $12 million dollar men’s fragrance deal with Christian Dior. Gleefully, the press noted that Pattinson’s deal had even topped Brad Pitt’s reported paltry $7 million for his Chanel No. 5 ads.
But there is no fragrance contract. Not yet, at least.
The Dior international press office in Paris explained to The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday morning that the so-called “reports” were just rumors and that no contract has been signed. They had no further comments.
Calls to Pattinson’s camp went unanswered.
There is no question that a fragrance deal may be in Pattinson’s future. After all, his Twilight costar (and rumored on-again girlfriend) Kristen Stewart is already plugging the house of Balenciaga’s Florabotanica scent.
Should a deal come through for Pattinson, he would join the ranks of other A-list actors — Jude Law, Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman — who have endorsed Dior fragrances in the past. Marion Cotillard is also the face of Dior handbags
But it’s worth noting that Pattinson has a closer relationship with Gucci than Dior. In fact, he loves Gucci so much that he wore their designs head-to-toe (the Signoria suit, white shirt, skinny black tie, leather belt and dress shoes) throughout his film Cosmopolis, as well as during the film’s press tour.
“After I found out [from his agent] that Rob actually wore Gucci in real life, I looked at photos of him in their suits and that was the style I wanted for his character,” Cosmopolis costume designer Denise Cronenberg told THR. “Gucci is not something I have used before, but I think it’s smart to use a line that he has already worn.”
Cronenberg also revealed that Pattinson kept all his Gucci suits from the film. “I didn’t think he would because he has like 4,000 suits,” she admitted.
When and if Pattinson ever does land a lucrative fragrance contract, we hope he isn’t presented with a script that rambles nonsensically about dreams and destiny (see: Pitt’s frequently parodied Chanel No. 5 ad).
MTV: Meanwhile Robert Pattinson has been describing the vampire sex in the film as “ridiculous” in recent interviews. Meyer: Yeah I saw that. I think he was talking about how it was so hard to keep a straight face [during that scene]. For the actors, there are 40 people in the room and most of them are inches away from you. It’s a kind of awkward menage-a-forty going on. I think when you see the scene it’s a testament to their acting ability that you don’t see any of that in that moment at all.
MTV: Kellan Lutz recently said there’s a special bonus scene during the credits. What can you say about that? Meyer: That’s actually incorrect. What they’ve been talking about will be in DVD extras I assume but it’s not in the credits. There is no extra scene.
The highly anticipated release of “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ truly marks the end of an era. And since MTV News has followed the record-breaking franchise from the beginning, we’re pulling out all the stops to celebrate the final chapter in Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling vampire romance series.

The David Michod-helmed drama sells to eOne in the United Kingdom, Canada and Benelux, among other markets.
TORONTO — The Robert Pattinson starrer The Rover is getting gobbled up in a number of key territories.
The David Michod-helmed drama, which also stars Guy Pearce, has been sold in the U.K., Canada and Benelux territories to eOne, Scandinavia to Nordisk, Latin America to Sun Distribution, the Middle East to Italia Film and Eastern Europe (excluding Russia) to Revolutionary Releasing. Village Roadshow already picked up the film for Australia and New Zealand.
FilmNation acquired the majority of worldwide sales rights to The Rover during the Cannes Film Festival in May and will continue to present the film to buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival. FilmNation also is handling U.S. sales with UTA.
Michôd, who became an in-demand director after the success of his debut Animal Kingdom, also wrote The Rover, which begins shooting in the winter and is based on a story he conceived with actor Joel Edgerton (Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby).
Set in a dystopian future, the story centers on a hardened loner, Eric (Pearce), who travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback. When a brutal gang of thieves steals his car and his only remaining possession, they leave behind the wounded Rey (Pattinson). Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him.
“We’ve had a great response from buyers so far,” FilmNation’s Glen Basner said. “David has emerged as an innovative filmmaker, generating much anticipation for his next film among both distributors and audiences worldwide.”
David Linde will produce The Rover for Lava Bear Films, while Liz Watts will produce for Porchlight Films with Michôd.
