You may have noticed that there is a new Twilight movie out! It’s currently getting Twilight diehards all a flutter and smashing box-office records. We chatted to star Robert Pattinson about the film, the fans and the end of the Twilight Saga…..


Breaking DawnRobert, 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 whimp (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 Stephanie. 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’d 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).
