“It’s really nice being surrounded by hot girls all the time.”
Hey Kindle & Nook Readers!
Here comes a special treat! Now available on Amazon (Kindle) and Barnes & Noble (Nook), you can find this e-Book of Robert Pattinson’s interviews from his humble Twilight beginnings to his rise to stardom.
The following is an excerpt of one of the interviews you can find in the e-Book:
Robert, what happened to your hair? It’s so short.
Yeah, I had to get it cut for a new movie I am doing. But it will grow back, I hope.
Well, how do you feel about the Twilight Saga coming to an end?
Well, I am sad, of course. It’s been such an adventure, such a ride. I made new incredible friends that will be with me forever.
Share one of your fondest memories with us.
Well, the honeymoon that we shot in Brazil, that was pretty amazing. I would go back there if I could. I fell in love with that country.
And one of the not so fun experiences?
Well, I had to take my shirt off right next to Taylor (Lautner). And I am sure you all know what a superb specimen that guy is. He makes me look like such a wimp (laughs).
What is it like to be working with beautiful women on the set of this movie?
It’s great; it’s really nice being surrounded by hot girls all the time. It’s the best thing ever. Hey, it’s why I became an actor!
Rob, you had to be very pale in Twilight, and you had to wear contact lenses all the time. What was worse?
Oh, the contact lenses for sure. They were pretty tight, and at times, they were painful too. That’s one thing I won’t be missing much. I don’t mind being pale. I am British; we are not supposed to tan much in the first place (laughs).
Do you think you will keep in touch with all the other actors from the movie?
Well, I certainly hope so (laughs). I don’t know if we will all call each other all the time. In this business, you need to move around so much. It makes it very difficult to stay in touch with others.
Do you think Breaking Dawn will truly be the end of the Twilight Saga?
Wouldn’t that be funny if they came out with something like “Twilight, Eclipse, Brunch…” No, I think it’s up to Stephenie. If she wants to write a spin-off or another book, I am game, I am in.
Do you have a favorite scene in this movie?
I think the birth scene is so different to everything else in the movie. And also, for a fantasy, it has a young audience, but it goes quite far. It’s quite graphic.
You are doing major press events for this movie all over the world. You are at Comic Con, which is a big comic convention. What are the nerdiest things that you have found out about each other?
I wouldn’t say Kristen is nerdy. She, literally, is a cooking fan. She’s a nerd when it comes to cooking. Especially on set. It was bizarre. She’d be in the trailer and the cooking channel was always on.
What will you miss about your character?
I liked how understanding Edward was. I liked that he was old school. I think that’s cool. I will miss that.
Are you creeped out by all the attention you have been getting from the ladies over the years?
I am not creeped out at all by it. You’d just have to be creeped out by women in general, which I am not (laughs).
Also!! Maybe you’re not just a fan of Rob, but a fan of Kristen & Taylor’s, as well. The Interview People are also offering an e-book which carries all three actors interviews through out the years together!

MTV’s Josh Horowitz started teasing this morning that he had “a little announcement” regarding MTV First & Breaking Dawn.
Shortly after his announcement, he revealed that the Twilight Trio (been awhile since I’ve heard them called that, thought I’d use that one for old times sake! LOL) would be answering fan questions as well.
Calling all “Twilight” fans! MTV has got a triple-layer treat for you in the form of exclusive interviews with your favorite three stars during our “MTV First: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.”
On Thursday, November 3, at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV, we will premiere a never-before-seen clip from the hugely anticipated new film live on-air, to be introduced by megastars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
Immediately following the introduction and premiere of the clip, Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner will be sticking around for a lengthy Q&A session with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz — a chat that begins on air and continues on MTV.com. Who knows what will happen when the three stars actually get together in one room, because separately they’ve had some very intriguing things to say about one another. In recent conversations, RPattz has compared his sex scenes to “playing Twister,” while KStew has revealed that Taylor began one of their fight scenes by confessing to his co-star, “You’re so cute.”
Fans can get in on the anything-might-happen conversation immediately by submitting video or text questions beginning Thursday (October 27) via MTV.com or via Twitter (using @MTVNews, plus the hashtags #AskTwilight and #MTVFirst).
Also launching today is our fan-voted poll of the Top Five Favorite “Twilight Saga” Moments thus far, including Edward and Bella’s first kiss in “Twilight,” the infamous Jacob abs-reveal in “New Moon,” Edward and Jacob in the tent in “Eclipse,” the fan-favorite “leg hitch” scene in “Eclipse” and Edward proposing to Bella in “Eclipse.” Beginning on Monday, October 31, the clips will be revealed in order of popularity.
So mark your calendars and set your alarms to tune in to our “MTV First: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” which kicks off Thursday November 3 on MTV at 7:56 p.m.
Oh, boy… so, another clip is headed our way..
Who’s excited?! What are you most looking forward to seeing in the film? Are you going to watch the MTV First special?
Drop a comment down below & don’t forget to send MTV your questions for Kristen, Rob & Taylor!
Tweet-caps by me– @saymmmkay!
“The wedding scene is kind of, it’s just a relatively momentous moment for the series, I mean it’s been building up and building up and building up, Edward’s proposed to her about 50 times by now.”
Scans & Translation: Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart – Premiere Magazine (France) – September 2011
RP: “Too Bad…”
You tell ‘em, Rob! LOL
Here’s the interview including Rob’s portion only:
Première: How long did it take to film both movies?
RP: 8 months!
P: Not to quote her, but Kristen Stewart told us 6.
RP: I had to stay longer.
P: Were there some mornings when you got up and asked yourself: ‘I can’t believe we’re still filming this movie?’
RP: For sure, I mean we spent two months shooting in the same room in front of a huge green screen.
P: I hope it was the sex scene!
RP: Nope! This one we wrapped in a day. No, we had to film scenes where nothing happens. We were trapped in this green screen room with fake snow all over the floor and we spent our days barely saying a word, looking each other in the , trying to look as intense as possible.
P: Nobody told you you were part of an experiment?
RP: That’s it exactly, ‘We’re going to put you in this green screen for 8 weeks, we’ll see which one will break down first.’
P: Did Bill Condon come on set with his Oscar beneath his arm?
RP: No, that’s not like him. But I don’t think he realize what he got himself into. He’s someone that doesn’t stress much though or he’s really good at hiding it!
It’s funny, really. Everyone came to him screaming: ‘Bill, did you see this? It’s nonsense!’ He’d just look at them and say ‘I know, it’s crazy.’ And the next second, he was gone.
P: It’s a way like any other of solving problems.
RP: You should have seen him. ‘I completely agree with you. It’s a disaster.’ And then he’d been gone for the rest of the day. Bill is hilarious and he put some of his sense of humor in the movie. The Twilight saga is not really known for its fun side but the previous directors seemed really attached to the angst aspect. The beginning of the last movie is the complete opposite: light, relaxing…
P: The first images of the trailer looked indeed bright and sunny.
Bill is an excellent screenwriter as well. Like Chris Weitz, who was more daring with New Moon. He wasn’t scared of drifting away from the book sometimes. In any other movie, when a line doesn’t work, we change it during filming so it flows better. But it wasn’t always possible with Twilight. If I was ever uncomfortable with a line, I was told ‘You have to say this. It’s in the book!’ Bill didn’t hesitate, ‘We’ll adjust, it’s my movie after all…’ *laughs*
P: You just made millions of fans angry.
RP: Too bad. It just reminds me of something I saw not too long ago, when I stumbled into a picture of a girl who had the famous line ‘And the lion fell in love with the lamb’ tattooed on her. I looked at it twice and she had ‘And the lamb fell in love with the lion’ instead. Can you imagine that, having a movie line engraved on your skin and it’s not even the right one?
P: In the first three movies, it’s always about repressing sexuality. In this one, it’s party time: midnight baths, sex scenes where the bed breaks, a rushed pregnancy… I don’t know if I can handle all of this at once.
RP: It scared me a little too, to be honest. When I heard about the last book and was said: ‘You’ll see, they sleep together all the time, it’s rough sometimes too. Jacob falls in love with a baby…’ I was dumbfounded. Summarized like this, you’d think it was the most screwed up story ever. But when you read it, it’s not as shocking/scandalous. For those who don’t know the books, I’m sure this movie is going to be by far the most interesting of the saga. We’re gone from the teenaged fantastic genre and enter a weird drama that ventures into horror at times. There are scenes were Bella looks like an alien. When the baby eats her from inside, she looks so thin and ghastly. Kristen had to wear this horrible makeup and when I’d see her come on set, I’d ask the crew: ‘’Are you sure we’re filming Twilight? Isn’t it supposed to be harmless and PG-13?’
P: I’m sure David Cronenberg is going to be pleased. ‘Robert just filmed the adaptation of Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo.)
RP: I think he is going to enjoy certain scenes, like the one where I open her up by biting through her placenta. It wouldn’t have played up in one of his feature films; he would have filmed it with a close-up of course.
P: With Breaking Dawn, I think you will attract a new audience. Beginning with those who will want to see it for the twisted plot.
RP: They’re going to get their money’s worth. It’s hilarious, No movie this size dares taking those kind of risks. But since the craziest scenes are a big part of the story going forward, it was impossible to not have them included in the film. We would look at each other every day and say ’I think we don’t have a choice, we have to film those weird stuff.’ There was no way we would tone it down.
P: So you became an in ‘oral Caesarean’ expert?
RP: It was without a doubt the funniest thing I ever had to do. I’d raise my head up and I was covered with cottage cheese or whatever substance they put in there. Before filming the scene, Stephenie Meyer, a midwife, Kristen and I sat down to talk to a doctor to decide where I was supposed to bite if this situation would ever occur in real life. The doctor looked at us a bit puzzled and said: ‘I don’t think you could ever do this in real life.’ *laughs*
P: I’m getting more and more excited to see this movie…
RP: I’m eager too. I’m probably going to die laughing watching it.
P: Stop me if I’m wrong but I feel like the hysteria surrounding the saga is dying down, that you can now lead sort of a normal life…
RP: Not yet, no. In LA, I have at least 40 seconds from the moment I arrive somewhere, before I get asked for my autograph. It’s Twitter’s fault. If this website didn’t exist, I’d be in peace. When I cross a glance at someone, they hurry to get their phone out. I know perfectly well that I’m screwed and that I’m going to spend a big part of my day shaking people off. It’s frustrating.
P: Is it true that you caused a riot in Brazil, when you filmed the honeymoon?
Yes, we did cause one at the airport that almost got us arrested. I still don’t know why but it was kind of scary. The immigration guy told me: ‘You’re in my country, we’re gonna play by my rules.’ ‘Whatever you want just let me leave your airport.’ *laughs*
P: How was it like on set on the last day of filming Breaking Dawn, when you had to say goodbye to 4 years of Twilight?
We were in Canada for the last day of shooting with the entire crew. A normal day on the set of Breaking Dawn, we were shooting at night, it was freezing and raining… When the first assistant announced the end with his clapperboard, everybody locked themselves up in their trailer without even having a last drink. But my last day, strictly speaking, came a bit later and it was amazing. Part of the crew got back together to film additional shots in the Caribbean. It was just Kristen and I, no worries… We were shooting in the sea so I didn’t have to have makeup on or wear my contacts. It was so hot, at the end of the day we all went out for cocktails on the beach, watching the sun rise. I then asked myself why we didn’t do this in those four years. Every difficult moment just vanished.

In this interview, MyAnna talks about how she found out she got the part of Tanya Denali in Breaking Dawn, Team Edward vs Team Jacob and what its like to work with Rob and everyone on the cast.
Breaking Dawn’s Director, Bill Condon Talks About Passionate Twilight Fans & Passionate Scenes… Ohhh… Rob!
Q: With the birth, like you talked about, it’s a violent birth, and the impending fight with the Volturi, then the honeymoon and the sex scenes. Knowing all those aspects, did you find it hard to balance the boundary between PG-13 and R? Did you sort of go to R and cut back? How did you approach that?
Bill: You know, I think it’s a good challenge because the thing that makes something R is literally showing it and if you give yourself that rule: I’m not gonna show, it’s not going to be frontal nudity, no one wants that, that is not appropriate here, but they are going to have intense love-making scenes. Or we’re not going to, again, show splattering blood against the walls, but it’s gonna be very visceral. It actually becomes a fun challenge to make sure you feel like you have the same experience without having to watch something clinical. I think it makes it better. There are great romantic scenes in PG-13 movies, you know?
Q: Actors are often asked about scenes that are emotionally draining. Do you feel that there were certain scenes as a director that you get emotionally drawn into, what scenes in particular in Breaking Dawn that it wasn’t easy to let go of those emotions?
Bill: Well you have to because you’re on to the next one either an hour later, or the next day, but man, absolutely, there were all these things along the way that you just have an adrenaline rush when you finally get there and get through it because so many things could go wrong. Like the childbirth, I keep going back to it, but that was unbelievably intense. Taylor, his heart is pouring out of him, but Rob, you see this where he’s trying to bring her back to life and the anguish of it and the panic of it all, and then Kristen just giving it all. In the way that you’ll see, all the effort of giving birth but she is the best dead person I’ve ever seen (everyone laughs) and that’s not easy because there were takes that were a minute long and she never blinked, she never seemed to breathe, I don’t know how she did it but that cold area was very intense. And at the end of the shoot in Louisiana we’d been shooting for four months already, kind of tired and everyone is worn down, all of our defenses were down and it was also one of those things where you get there and you do it, and it lifted everybody up for the rest of the shoot because it just felt like something real had happened. That’s the thing that is great on a set, when you know something real has happened, it’s when the crew is suddenly incredibly quiet and everyone is paying attention, is sort of like you know it’s happening right in front of you and everyone’s aware of it, you know.
Q: One of the most insane places for Twilight, one of the most passionate places in the world for Twilight, is Brazil, how did you handle filming there with so many fans who are different from fans in America, who are very passionate … ?
Bill: But respectful. It was very interesting. You know Rob told that story when we were shooting (laughs) but it was truly like everyone was in the street having a party and then suddenly one girl was like all over him (mimics arms across Rob’s neck, Rob’s surprised expression). And I think she was beheaded (everyone laughs) because I did ask like two hours later “What happened to her?” and everyone was like “I don’t know!”(laughs).
Q: Are you planning anything special for Brazil?
Bill: I hope so, definitely. I want to go back for the film festival there. I don’t know if this year or next year. But we should definitely because it’s really an important part of this movie. And it was great, I had a great time there.
Robert Pattinson’s Cosmopolis co-star, Juliette Binoche talks to French newspaper La Provence.
For David Cronenberg’s new movie ?
J.B: “Yes, it is called “Cosmopolis”. I play an art dealer who has an affair with Robert Pattinson. He plays a billionaire who loses everything.”
Robert Pattinson evolves in a sphere that seems far away from yours…
J.B: “I don’t have a point of view about his career, I didn’t see the “Twilight” movies. We had dinner together on set. He is an incredible cinema buff who for several years saw two to three movies a day. He is a fan of “Les amants du Pont Neuf” (The Pont Neuf lovers). He was funny, you would have thought he was a little child.”
