AP: Robert Pattinson fears life after ‘Twilight’
Here’s one of the many interviews Rob has recently done during his Remember Me press junket. Check it out!
But the 23-year-old heartthrob, who attracts throngs of screaming fans wherever he goes, has a lot on his mind these days — not the least of which is what will happen when the “Robsession” ends.
“If it suddenly dies down and suddenly no one is interested … yeah, it is worrying,” he says. “It’s scary to think that it all might just fundamentally stop after the ‘Twilight’ thing’s finished.”
That “Twilight thing” is the more than $1 billion movie franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling series. Pattinson stars as Edward Cullen, the vegetarian vampire who falls in love with human Bella Swan.
Despite the success of the first two films, “Twilight” and “New Moon,” Pattinson hopes to break away from the emo, teenage undead role with his latest project, “Remember Me.” The drama stars Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin as twenty-somethings falling in love while coping with family tragedy. Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper co-star.
Pattinson, also an executive producer on the film, recently talked to The Associated Press about nude scenes, being idolized and what he fears most in life.
AP: Did you feel a lot of pressure choosing “Remember Me,” since it’s the first time we’re seeing you post-“Twilight”?
Pattinson: I just always liked the script. When I was making it, I didn’t even think about it. Now that it’s being released, it comes into context with all of that.
AP: I know your two sisters are older, but were you able to draw on any real-life experience for your role as a protective brother?
Pattinson: I’ve never really had the opportunity to do that, really. I remember when I was like 6 years old and one of my sisters was being bullied by someone and I came down with my foam baseball bat. That’s the only example of brotherly protectiveness I had.
