Robert Pattinson Eclipse Interview

Robert Pattinson who played the character Edward in "Twilight Saga" movie series reveals some of the details about the next movies "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" that it might be a two movie. Maybe this part is too long that they decided to make it into two. But the guy never said anything whether they are a couple off screen with Kristen Stewart and who could blame him, he is was just their to promote the movie.

Here is the Interview:

What did you learn for Eclipse?
Robert Pattinson: "I guess I had to learn how to run properly. In the last two I’ve always run with a kind of limp/skip and I had to sort of look like I could run more solidly this time. So I spent a lot of time on a giant treadmill, like one of those wheels mice run around - and got filmed doing it to improve my form. I guess that was one of the big things."

Edward is considered a romantic hero but he’s also very possessive. Can you talk a little bit about what you think halfway through playing Edward? Has he changed?

Robert Pattinson: "Yeah, I mean in the first two movies, earlier on in the story, were just caused by his desolation from reality, so when he finds one thing to hold on to, that’s where the possessiveness comes from. I think as the series goes on he accepts more and more that he’s part of the contemporary world. I think all the things that were deemed to be flawed before start fading away. I mean, that’s how I’m trying to play him. I think he’s coming out of his shell a little bit in Eclipse, so hopefully by the end of Breaking Dawn I’m hoping he’ll be basically a normal 17 year old guy, just a little bit pale."

Did you ever compete for a woman with another guy the way Edward does with Jacob?

Robert Pattinson: "Did you say, 'Have you ever slept with a woman with another guy?' [Laughing] I was like, 'I don’t know if that’s appropriate!' Compete, no I don’t! I’m not good at doing it. I just kind of leave it alone. And also I guess, well I was about to say if you own the girl but that doesn’t make sense, if you are the one with the girl in the first place I guess maybe you’re forced into fighting a little bit. But I would never be in Jacob’s position, because then you just end up being the guy who broke up a couple anyway."

How was working more closely with Taylor Lautner in Eclipse?

Robert Pattinson: "Yeah it was good in this one because I never do anything with anyone else, apart from Kristen in the other two. I mean brief things, but it’s kind of part of how I was answering the other question, letting Edward have petty emotions like being jealous of Jacob and not being able to control himself around him because he gets under his skin so much it became much easier to play, a much bigger scope of emotion to play as soon as you let someone else get through your armor. So doing that with Taylor was great. He’s really good too."

Was there a scene in particular with him that stands out?

Robert Pattinson: "Some scenes it was just quite cool to have him there. I like the scenes where Bella has to reveal something about herself in front of Jacob and me at the same time. It’s quite a nice extra thing to relate to. Most of the time it’s just with Bella and she’s trying to convey something to me and Edward is being totally sympathetic to her. But seeing another guy and seeing it’s not just about our relationship, it’s about some other person, it kind of made it a little more interesting."

Do you believe in a soul, like Edward?

Robert Pattinson: "Yeah. I mean, I think definitely. I can’t remember who said it, but a soul and a heaven must exist because good people aren’t rewarded enough on Earth. I always liked that idea, if that makes sense."

How was working with David Slade? Do you have to kind of explain to each director about the character?

Robert Pattinson: "It’s interesting. After doing Twilight, the first one everyone had very specific ideas and everyone was butting heads the entire time, and you can kind of feel it in the movie. It’s a different energy where everyone’s like, 'No, this is what it’s about.' Then when Chris Weitz came in for New Moon, he basically came in with the opinion that he liked the first one, he liked what the actors were doing, so just follow along that road."

"Then when David came in he was like, 'I want to do everything completely different, not do it like the first two.' So we talked about the character development and consistency from the two and he was like, 'It doesn’t matter. Let’s just do something completely different,' which is good because then it’s challenging. It’s easy to get stagnant if you play the same character and luckily I’ve kind of felt, I don't know...I guess in New Moon I felt like I was developing something a little bit deeper. And then with Eclipse I felt like I was doing a completely different movie, and a completely different character in a lot of ways. So, yeah, it was nice and challenging."

What was David’s biggest imprint on you as far as how you played Edward this time?

Robert Pattinson: "I mean, I guess he was really fighting to make it not so, what’s the word, solemn I guess, just the speed of it. Just to speed things up which is a massive deal because I mean Edward always, in my eyes, has been so calculated and everything is not rash, any of his decisions. David wanted to speed up the whole thing and make him more vulnerable."

You were on the first soundtrack, would you contribute again on anymore of the movies?

Robert Pattinson: "I’ve done a couple of things. I mean, I’ve always just been playing around. As for the soundtracks, I mean I’m not sure. It was nice to be involved in the first one. I just saw Twilight on TV for the first time a few days ago."

You’d never seen it before?

Robert Pattinson: "No, [laughing] apart from the commentary. When my song came on I was just thinking that is so bizarre that I actually had a song in the movie. I’m kind of amazed Catherine Hardwicke did it. It really shows how none of us thought it was going to be so massive. I didn’t know anyone was going to buy the soundtrack or anything. So it’s a little more nerve-wracking now. I don’t know, maybe."

Taylor Lautner has a great line when he gets to say he’s hotter than you. How was it filming that scene and were you upset you didn’t get a comeback as Edward? And would you like to address that issue right now?
Robert Pattinson: "There’s nothing you can say. It’s like, ‘Yeah, you are! At least I’m not hotter than you.' I don’t know, yeah it was quite fun. There are quite a few lines in there. Jacob has quite a few catchphrase-type of lines in this film, with me especially."

"It’s quite funny, for some reason I find it quite funny when I’m doing stuff like that with Taylor. There are a couple scenes where we have sort of confrontational scenes, I sort of push him around a little bit and I was supposed to grab his shoulder. It wasn’t even in the script, I thought I’d really scare him and grab his shoulder and it’s going to freak him out and turn the whole scene upside down! Then I grabbed his shoulder and his shoulder was too big to actually get a grip on. So he just went [brushed it off] and I just dropped my hand, so that was kind of embarrassing. I got him back, though. He kept having to dress up in a little grey spandex wolf suit all the time and try and be intimidating in that, with Kristen patting him on the head and stuff. That was quite fun to get him back."

There are so many fan sites not just for you, but for Edward. Do you check any of those fansites out?

Robert Pattinson: "It’s kind of incredible the information they get so quickly. Sometimes I’ll check them to see what my schedule is on stuff, especially on the weekend when I can’t get through to my agency. They know way better, or even to see my emails sometimes! But no, some of them it’s strange being in Twilight because so much of the fan base is completely about being on the internet and having a community with each other. You see people turn up on sets of other movies I’ve done and take a picture. You know the main reason is so they can have a thing within their online community, and you know it’s going to be up within five seconds. If they could upload it as they were taking the picture, it’d be better. But, yeah, it’s strange."

Are you afraid that everything else you do will be compared to Edward Cullen?

Robert Pattinson: "I’m not sure. I’ve always been of the opinion that if something explodes really quickly, it takes the same amount of time for people to think of something else. I mean, I don’t know. I hope not. Maybe it’ll be a good thing...I have no idea."

You said most of your scenes are with Kristen. Both of you are very serious actors, so how do you two prepare for those scenes? Do you get together and nitpick everything over, or do you prefer to just get on set and see what happens?

Robert Pattinson: "I do because I have, for some reason I can’t understand anything and I think I’m going really into depth of the character when it just seems so obvious to Kristen. Her mind works completely differently. She can just feel things immediately and I’ll kind of, I don’t know, I like to be much more cerebral about things, in completely the opposite way to Kristen. I don’t feel confident unless I know more about the reasons why I’m doing things. I don’t really do that for other parts, so I guess that’s what I do for Edward. But I always, since the first one, like to go in depth about things."

Edward and Victoria have this really cool fight scene. How much training did you and Bryce Dallas Howard have to go through and what was it like having to fight a girl?

Robert Pattinson: "Weirdly, one of the producers on this told me the other day, 'Wow, you look so enthusiastic in that fight scene, much more so than any one in the series.' No, I did a bit of practice with Bryce. It’s really hard to do stuff with her because she’s the gentlest person and she’s always kind of laughing whenever you do anything, so we did a little bit and kind of half-heartedly. And then she’d be afraid of hurting me for some reason, even though she’d only be hitting [imitating a light tap]. I thought something was going to go wrong at some point, and we basically waited for the day. Most of the vicious looking stuff I did with her stunt double who was really, really tough. But the bits with Bryce you can really notice if you just watch the fight scene, we’re just kind of rolling around a bit and grabbing onto each other. But, yeah, it was fun doing that."

Do you understand the fantasy about you and Kristen being together in real life and what’s the truth about it?

Robert Pattinson: "Do I understand the fantasy of it? No, not really. Well I mean I guess people like stories I mean…that’s my basic conclusion is that they just want everything to be about Twilight, I guess. The truth is…that I wish I had a few more hours of sleep today so I could think about better answers. I don't know." [laughing]

What would you say to someone who wants to know why they should see this movie?

Robert Pattinson: "'Why not?,' I suppose. It’s strange. I don’t know what to say to people. It’s become so big that it’s become part of the cultural environment I think, unless I’m just imagining it. It’s really difficult for me to tell someone to go out and see it. I mean I don’t know anymore! For the first one and the second one I knew exactly what to say to people."

"I guess, if you don’t know what the story is about by now, then you’ve probably never been to the cinema before so why not just go to the cinema for once? I don't know. I mean I think if you’re a fan of it, there’s a lot of the film that plays into what the fans of the series want. I guess if you’ve never seen them before, a lot of people who have seen it tell me it’s the most accessible of the three. It’s a solid story by itself and it’s more of a sort of action film. Even when I was watching Twilight the other day, now that I’ve seen it, you do need to read the book to get it. I was just like, 'What?,' and I’m in it!"

With Breaking Dawn, what do you think is Edward’s evolution?

Robert Pattinson: "I haven’t read it yet! I mean it’s weird to do because I’m starting it a month after this job and it’s something I’m quite glad I haven’t read it yet. I didn’t intend to not read it until now, but it’s quite exciting. I have no idea. I just heard brief rumors about what happens in the story, but I don’t really know what happens at all."

What’s the one part of your costume that always transforms you into character? How are you going to go about getting your long hair back for Breaking Dawn?

Robert Pattinson: "Probably the contact lenses because it makes me miserable as soon as I put them in. That’s what creates sort of the pouting and brooding character. You’re just like, 'Ugh.'"

"I’m thinking maybe Edward had a haircut, it might be easier. But yeah, I didn’t even think about that when I got it cut. That is a bit silly. Vampires can cut their hair though, so I like the idea of Edward having a shaved head in the last one. That might be pretty cool."

How long have you known Breaking Dawn was going to be two films and have you met with Bill Condon yet?

Robert Pattinson: "I found out about Breaking Dawn being two films when the press release came out! I haven’t asked anyone about that yet. Bill Condon I met briefly a few weeks ago, kind of by accident just before the MTV Awards in a bar [laughing]. He seemed great. He seemed like a really, really nice guy. I haven’t talked to him in detail about anything, but Gods and Monsters is an amazing movie. I think it’s going to be good. I don’t even know where they’re going to shoot it yet or anything!"

In the tent scene, did you or Taylor crack up during the serious moments? Was it hard to keep a straight face?

Robert Pattinson: "It’s weird that you mention the tent scene about that. For some reason on that day - we reshot it as well - but the first time we did it, I was really freaking out. I don’t know why. I think it had to do with claustrophobia or something, because we were actually shooting in a tent, and I just couldn’t get it together! I kept forgetting my lines and getting so nervous. I just wanted to punch anyone who was near me in the face! We did about three takes and Kristen is supposed to be asleep on the floor and she saw that I was freaking out...I don't know why. Halfway through the take she suddenly opened her eyes. She kept staring at me and kept trying to make me laugh through the entire take, and it’s like the most serious scene in the whole movie! I just wanted to strangle her for the first two seconds, but then the entire scene I was playing, I almost could not stop laughing the entire time. We got literally one take where it went kind of right and it was because of that, when I was trying to hold back laughter. I guess it made me more alive or something. They did reshoot the scene in the end, so maybe I’m a little bit mistaken."

What drives you to succeed?

Robert Pattinson: "I guess probably fear of failure [laughing] and an inadequacy complex."
