Heree's the whole interview of Robert Los 40 Principales magazine!!!!!!!!
Los 40 Principales magazine, in their edition for Spain, interviewed Rob on the maand of February. We finally got a hold of this edition of the magazine. The interview is completely new and it has never been geplaatst online.
Here’s the complete translation of the interview, which, as usual, features tons of fun Rob quotes :)
“A jaar geleden I couldn’t get a date. Now the world has gone backwards. I can have any 14 jaar old that I want.” says the British actor Robert Pattinson, who has become overnight, the new It Boy thanks to his character Edward Cullen.
verplaats over Zac efron… Have u met the High School Musical star?
We met at an awards show. He’s the new face of success. But he’s all the opposite of what I thought he would be. He’s so honest and down to earth. You’d think he’s so prepared for the press, but he’s not.
What do fans say about u when they meet u in person?
They are increadibly opinionated. They have very clear ideas as to how I should live my life. Who knew 15 years old could be so moralistic?
Is it true that u did castings for vampire characters before?
Yes, I did an audition for True Blood, but that didn’t work out. I didn’t think I would get the role of Edward Cullen either, because the character is very enigmatic. I didn’t want to play the biggest vampire stereotype, so I tried to humanize him.
When u got the role a lot of fans were very angry….
They didn’t want me. They sent me hate messages and the Internet was full of comments. They zei I looked like a bum.
Do u understand why Edward appeals so much to young girls?
No, I don’t get why people like this character in such an obsessive level. The fact that he’s so polite and opens doors for girls, all that. I don’t get why teenagers like this stuff.
Did u get along with Kristen Stewart?
In the beginning I thought: “She’s so serious, so I have to be very serious too”. And I went on without talking to her for like two weeks. She must have thought I was stuck up. I only spoke to her about the movie, other movies, books, serious stuff. But I felt like an idiot. I dropped the act and we got along great.
It’s been zei on numerous occasions that you’re in love with her and that u proposed to her on the set of the movie…
I don’t remember that happening, but if that’s what she said, then it’s true.
How did your career being?
I started as a model when I was 12. I was the youngest one in the agency. I was so skinny, I looked like a girl, and back then the whole androgenous look was in. Then I did some amateur theater and then I began to go to castings.
And u were chosen for Reese Witherspoon’s movie Vanity Fair…
Yes, but my part was cut from the movie. That’s how I got Harry Potter, the casting director felt guilty.
Why didn’t u get meer roles after Harry Potter?
I went on several auditions but they kept telling me I was scary….
And your agent sent u to LA to do meer castings and u got the role of Edward. Weren’t u sent to media training after u were chosen for the role?
Yes. My agent kept getting messages like “he’s resisting the training!” (laughs), I just didn’t want to answer like I was a robot. Not even little children like to hear the same answers, it’s boring!
What have u been up to since u finished Twilight?
I’ve been living in LA. I learned how to drive and I’ve been exploring the city. It’s a very different culture from London. There isn’t many pubs and people here don’t get how normal it is in London to just go out for a beer. They think it’s bizarre.
Do u have a car yet?
A 1989 BMW convertible. The converteerbaar, cabriolet top, boven is broken, the dashboard caught on brand when I was driving and the back seats look like a dumpster with all my old trash. And I just hope the red button that just turned on isn’t something I should worry about. (laughs).
Have u made any new vrienden in Hollywood?
A couple. Most of them are from the industry. I go out with club promoters and PR people. I always get my picture taken coming out of the dodgiest places. It’s embarrasing. I went out everyday for like a week until I realized that people must think I was some sort of drunk.
What do u do on your spare time?
I’m a musician. I know all actors say they’re musicians, but I’ve been doing it for years. I play the piano since I was four and classical gitaar since I was five. I just started playing blues and similar stuff. I’m not a virtuoso, but I’m not that bad either.
u used to be seen playing in little bars,
I did it a couple of times, until some people filmed me and put me up on youtube. They ruined the experience. Now it would be impossible to play again like that.
Who’s your favoriete musician?
busje, van Morrison. I own all his albums.
Your sister is in the muziek business as well, isn’t she?
Lizzy had a very successful song with her band Aurora. My other sister works in advertising. I’m the youngest.
They treated u like their own doll, didn’t they?
They dressed me up like a girl, yes! (laughs). But it all changed when I turned 12.
u play Salvador Dali in u volgende movie, how was the experience?
It’s marked a before and an after. I got obsessed with Dali, read everything I could about him. It’s the first role in which I could reflect about it meer seriously. He was the weirdest bloke, but I feel I understood him. He was very, very shy.
It looks like u have a bright future a head of you….
It’s funny how things change. After being unemployed for so long, u start thinking “I’m not gonna mess this up again”. So now, I’ll only think about how I’m going to play a role. My only concern is to not mess this up. I don’t want to be an idiot and that’s a real possibility.
