Rob talks 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2', The Twilight Saga, 50 Shades of...

This interview is featured in 'Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner – In Their ..., that contains interviews dating from 2008. Here's the newest one with lots of new quotes. Rob talks 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2', 'Twilight', 50 Shades of Grey, fame and success.

Looking extremely casual in an old t-shirt, baseball cap, faded jeans and a little unshaven, Pattinson, 26, looks happy and relaxed to have the movie that changed his life behind him. As usual, he doesn’t talk about his relationship with co-star Kristen Stewart, but talks a little of what’s to come post-Twilight, as well as addressing the rumours about him playing the lead in the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey. He will next star in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis.

Q: So now that it’s finally over, let’s go back. What was the most touching moment for you in the movie, including the one we haven’t seen yet?
Out of the whole series?

Q: Yeah, what touched you the most and the hardest one?
Probably that a bit in the first one, just when Bella is in the hospital, and she says, ‘Don’t ever leave me again,’ and I say, ‘Where am I going to go?’ or something like that. I still think that’s kind of my favorite scene in it mainly because it was so different what happened after it, and we made up the lines there and that’s how different the shoot was. Like every movie afterwards, the idea of making up lines, is kind of just unheard of and so I loved that bit. But the hardest was probably the birth scene in the first part of this one mainly because it was hilarious, and it was supposed to be really serious. (laughs) And there was one shot where we had to look directly into the camera, and I was crying with laughter, and I’d have to go down and chew the baby out and I would like, I was stopping tears from coming out of my eyes, and it looks like I’m crying in the thing. And I’m not supposed to be able to cry as a vampire and I’m like crying in the scene but I was laughing.

Q: Is it cool to see Kristen play and look different as a vampire? She’s sexy and not clumsy anymore?
For some reason, I listened to Taylor at Comic Con talking about the clumsy thing, and I thought, ‘Was she clumsy?’ (laughs). And everyone always talked about the clumsiness. But yeah, I never understood it. It’s always the aspect of female characters and young female characters that’s supposed to be unattractive about them when they are clearly not unattractive? (laughs) It’s like, she’s really clumsy, and I’ve never met a genuinely clumsy person or noticed someone who is like handicapped by being so clumsy, (laughs) like it’s so weird.

Q: Do you think you have a quality of timeless gentlemen?
I don’t know. I guess I’m like relatively sensitive. Also, I had two older sisters so I grew up with lots of girls and so I guess I kind of have a different mentality cause of that. And I never really played any team sports or anything, (laughs) so I guess all those things add up to that. But yeah, I mean, I don’t know why but I’m not getting cast as them anymore. (laughter)

Q: Do you like that type of character?
Yeah, sometimes, sometimes it’s really nice. I was watching Water For Elephants on TV the other day, because it’s not got to the point where it’s far enough away and I don’t even recognize myself, and I just thought it was really sweet. It’s like an old-fashioned movie, and yeah, it is quite fun playing it. When you are doing it, it’s kind of annoying, because my instincts, they want to go to the absolute possible place and you know that it never, this person would never do this, and most of the characters I play are innately kind people which is quite nice, because people aren’t genuinely very kind.

Q: So do you have this sort of urge now to do something, play the mean guy, play the meathead?
I kind of always did that up until Twilight. Like, apart from Harry Potter, I mean every part I played is always kind of like sort of weird. But I don’t know, I find kind of random things, the movie I’m doing next, is a real guy, an interrogator and he’s not particularly weird or anything, he’s just like, he’s kind of, well he’s a little weird.

Q: What is your next project?
It’s about the guy who found Saddam Hussein. It’s a military interrogator, based on this guy called Eric Maddox. It’s this crazy story, but he basically talked to about 250 people, none of whom were on any of the US Armies Wanted Lists, and found Saddam Hussein when no one even knew he was in Iraq. So it was an interesting story.

Q: Have you read 50 Shades of Grey and did you know it was based on you and would you star in it?
I think the author has written me out of it. I saw some interview earlier and they went, oh, it could never be him. And I’m like ,’Hey, I’m going to make you pay for that.’ (laughter)

Q: She said you could never play the role that was based on you?
It’s funny seeing all these other actors so openly like vying for it. I’ve never seen that happen before. It’s so strange. I haven’t read the whole thing, I read bits of it, there’s a book called 50 Sheds of Grey, (laughter) have you seen that book? That’s amazing, just a picture book of 50 Grey Sheds, (laughter) and it’s literally on the New York Times Best Seller List. People have got the wrong read. (Laughs)

Q: You said you just watched Water For Elephants. How do you feel when you watch your own movies? Does it always take a while for you to separate yourself?
Yeah, a couple of years at least. But I really like the first Twilight movie now, cause it’s on TV constantly, (laughs) so I’ve seen it like six times, but I remember watching it the first time at the premiere and I had to leave. I left and I sat in the car and it was also kind of overwhelming to me. I started to have a panic attack in the cinema, and then I ran out and got in the car, and I didn’t even realize there was someone videotaping me through the car window, they are right next to me sitting and I was like ‘Oh god!’ Now it’s kind of different. But I find it really hard to watch stuff although I watched Cosmopolis and because it’s so stylized I found that not too hard to watch.

Q: What do you think about when you watch yourself in movies?
I don’t really know what I’m doing when I’m doing it, (laughs) I find a lot of the time it’s like tossing a coin and if something comes out good or not when you are doing it, even in the scene… I don’t understand these actors who can consistently turn up to work and just be like in ‘acting mode.’ And just be really good all the time. Like I can literally walk onto a set and have absolutely no idea, I’ve done all of my preparation or whatever and have no idea what’s going to happen until I open my mouth at all. And I can also feel that something went terribly, when it’s the best scene in the movie or whatever. I have no idea ever.

Q: You are a method actor.
(laughs) I don’t know if I’m completely together in my own method.

Q: Did you have to prepare differently for this one? There was a lot of physicality and also and also, anything you can give us about the final sequence, how was it to shoot?
It’s so funny, (laughs) it’s supposed to be a secret, but they put it in the trailer, like Summit was saying, ‘Don’t talk about the battle.’ And I’m like, ‘It’s in the trailer, what are you talking about?’ (laughter) But yeah, I did tons. I worked a lot at the beginning, because I had to start with my shirt off, but that’s it, (laughs) but we shot the battle stuff at the end. And so I was totally out of shape by that point. (laughter)

Q: How did you do it?
I’m all right at doing it. It’s film fighting, you don’t really have to be that fit, cause it’s not really like normal fighting, like you have to kind of be quite flaily, and I’m quite like mal-coordinated. I’m quite gangly, and so it’s easy for me to kind of do, because if you are throwing a punch, you throw a punch and it’s so huge, where most people who like actually box a lot or something, are so used to keeping it tight, and it feels so fake to them. But I find that kind of stuff quite easy, and can do it on one or two takes. Like everyone else who were really physically fit has to do like ten. But the only annoying thing is the wire stuff, but I never see anyone who’s good at like anything on a wire, it’s always through the operator. If you get a good wire team, then you will look good. If something is not that well organized, you will just look terrible, no matter how good you are at it.

Q: Were you scared?
I mean, most of the time you were just so tired, (laughs) the whole time you were just going through the motions.

Q: Do you have a memento from the set?
I have almost every costume from the first one because I was wearing that stuff for about two years, (laughs) afterwards.

Q: You are in the baseball scene, do you have a baseball outfit?
No, that was like rented. We were pretty low budget on the first one. (Laughter)

Q: What was your favorite one that you kept?
I had these jeans which I kept. I literally bought all these clothes and then got the company to pay me back on the first one. You could do anything on the first movie, it was crazy. I was stuck in Vancouver getting my Visa by myself. I started just borrowing my costumes (laughs) and I kept them all for years afterwards.

Q: What a huge difference.
Yeah. And the funny thing was, I had all these kinds of things from the first one. I was wearing independent little labels from cool shops in Vancouver and then by the last one, the more and more money that became involved, then there would be these contracts with clothes companies and so like if you look at the last one, every single vampire is wearing G Star or Bellstaff. (laughter) No matter which side they are on, (laughter) it’s crazy. And they all have the label on the side as well. It’s nuts. (Laughs)

Q: After all these years, what will you miss the most?
There is something incredibly familiar and nice about it and it’s normally what you are doing when you turn up on a movie set when you know everyone is so, like normally it’s like the first day of school every time you start, but when you know people. It’s strange, and it is pretty nice. Like when you are doing a job where everything changes all the time, say doing a TV show, but at the same time, that’s one of the greatest things about acting as well, (laughs) you can just leave everybody behind.

Q: After all this success, what do you do to keep grounded?
I don’t know, I mean I guess I’m quite a genuinely insecure person, and so it’s not very hard for me. I mean, it’s sort of like, I think even if someone says that something is good you’ve got to be pretty dumb to let your head get big, especially now when everything about your life is reported. I don’t understand people who still have a big ego who are actors. It’s like, everyone knows who you are, everyone knows you are just a vain moron, (laughter) and that’s what every actor is. (laughter)

Q: What do you miss doing the most that you can’t do now?
I really miss going to the cinema, especially in LA, because LA has the best cinemas in the world. I used to go four times a week, five times a week, and that and just being able to just I mean this obvious anonymity kind of thing, you want to be able to sit in a place and not worry and just listen to people or watch people and it’s the camera phones, it’s the camera phones and TMZ, it just ruined everything. And in a few years, people will be like oh Goddamnitt I wish we never bought into TMZ, now we’ve ruined it for ourselves. (laughter)

Q: What’s the best thing that you’ve got?
Just being able to do this job. I mean, it is the best job in the world. I just wish I had gotten it like 12 years ago. (laughs)

Q: Thank you.

Preview of the Audio of ‘Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner – In their Own Words 

Here’s a preview of the audio part of the eBook. An audio compilation of old Rob interviews – Most of these, we only got the print version. (A new Rob interview from this book was posted here)


1)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.

2)What’s the one part of your costume that always transforms you into character?
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.’

3) What drives you to succeed?
Robert Pattinson: I guess probably fear of failure and an inadequacy complex, and I just drive rental cars. I drive different things. I don’t have a car.

4) 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, like on weekends when I can’t get through to my agency. They know way better, or even to see my emails sometimes!

5) Talk about the past year or so of your life. The sudden celebrity. The paparazzi. How are you dealing with things, and do you find yourself more comfortable with it all now?
Robert Pattinson: I guess it’s inevitable that you become more comfortable. You still fight against some things. There’s nothing really scary about the franchise itself. I like all the people I work with. I generally have very few disagreements about the script or anything while we’re doing it, especially on New Moon. It just seemed so relaxed and easy.

6) What about in a fight between you and Taylor Lautner?
Robert Pattinson: I don’t know. I did hear, the other day, that Taylor had agreed to an interview where the interviewer was going to fight him. And, after looking at Taylor’s martial arts videos from when he was like nine, I wouldn’t really want to do anything. Maybe if I had some kind of weapon.

7)Love plays such a major part of these films, and so many fans want what happens on the screen to happen in your real life. How do you separate falling in love in real life with the women that you’re cast opposite?
You’ve always got to remember that you’re being paid. There’s a lot of connotations that come with that. That’s one of the major separations.

New Interview With Robert Pattinson (In Full)

UPDATE: Added Full Interview (Scroll Down)  
UPDATE: Added Transcript, Thanks to:  ThoseBritishBoys 
Check out this Sneak Peek Of A New Interview With Robert Pattinson. It's from a Film Magazine (don't know which one yet) that will be out soon. 

The interview was done shortly after Comic Con and is for "Breaking Dawn Part 2" promo.
We'll have more from the interview as soon as it's available. For now enjoy the sneak peek ;-)


What advice would you give to your younger self on the first day of Twilight?
Robert Pattinson: On literally the first take of the first scene, I had to run over and pick up Kristen. And I almost tore my arse-cheek muscle, my glute, because I crouched down wrong. So I’d say: ‘Don’t squat down so low’.

How was the Twilight experience changed you?
RP:  I’m probably more insecure. My ego got smaller [laughs]. I thought I was pretty cool after the first one. I finished the movie and for the first time, I had some money. The Twilight trailer had come out and got eight million hits so I had all the best parts of being in a big movie. I had meetings were people were saying, ‘This is the new hot thing, eh?’ Everyone cared about you, but no-one knew who you were outside of that. So I spent eight months getting wasted with everyone thinking I was great. It was really fun. It was different at the start. TMZ and all that stuff was getting prevalent and now, it’s insane. Becoming big now, you became insanely conservative. Terrified about everything. Now I just stay at home.

Did you keep any mementoes from the films?
RP: The first one, I kept pretty much the whole wardrobe because I didn’t have any clothes then. There was an interview I did – with MTV or something – with a superfan. I was supposed to go in and surprise her, and after 10 seconds, she was like, ‘Are you wearing the same outfit as Edward?’ I’d completely forgotten, but they were the same clothes!

Kristen describes you as being ‘ridiculously ambitious’. Is that true?
RP: I think I want to be…The difference between me and Kristen is that she can do a day of work and at the end of the day be like,’I did the absolute best I could. Satisfied.’ Whereas I don’t think I’ve ever had that day in my life. I always go home irritated and want to fix it the next day. I don’t know who has the bigger ego in that case. Whether hers is bigger because she thinks what she did is fine, or whether mine’s bigger because I think I’m so great it’s never going to be good enough.

What has the franchise done for you career in general?
RP:  It’s done a lot. But the same time, you have to steer it. You can sink just as quickly as someone who’s never had this. It’s not a free pass. I think about how to carefully plan the route afterwards. You can’t do anything you want. And if I ever stop acting, I want people to remember my stuff as interesting after I got given my break.

Kristen’s interview –talks about Rob.

In what ways has Robert changed since the franchise began?
Kristen Stewart: Rob is ridiculously ambitious. I see this drive and it’s only starting…especially right now because this is all coming to an end. I guess it’s not a change, it’s just something that’s come out and developed

We shared a new/old interview with Rob recently where he talked about 50 Shades, what scene in the whole Twilight series touched him the most, how he stays grounded and more. Click HERE to read if you missed it. 

That interview came from a compilation of interviews in a new eBook titled, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner – In their own words.

I purchased the eBook back when we posted and the material is very familiar - a collection of some of Rob's press interviews from 2008-2012 but the audio clips I enjoyed most. Many of them we haven't heard his voice saying the words but have read the words in print through the years. The $7.99 was worth it just to have the collection of audio.

Now the contest news!

The publishers, eBook People, have extended an offer to our readers to win a free copy of the ebook! We'll run a caption contest starting this Thursday, September 27th and go through the weekend, for a chance to win the extensive collection of interviews from Rob, Kristen and Taylor.

Here are a few audio samples of Rob (dated from 2008-2012) they sent us. There are roughly 20 from Rob in the actual eBook:

The press release explains more about the eBook:
After the great success with the release of Part 1 of the biggest eBook on The Rolling Stones ever (50 Years: The Rolling Stones – Views from the Inside, Views from the Outside, 1,000 pages, Part 2 to be released in 2013) only months ago, The eBook People GmbH ( have dedicated themselves to a new comprehensive publication: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner – In their own words. 
Weeks before the last installment of the Twilight Saga in mid-November a record-breaking eBook on the main cast members will hit online stores like iTunes, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. 
“One of the most successful franchises in Hollywood history comes to an end and many fans are excited and confused at the same time”, says publisher Matthias Würfl. “It’s time to take a look back on the main cast members and characters, all the way from the first movie up to now. Of course, we were also surprised by the news of Rob and Kristen. You can never look into people’s minds and their real reasons. But some of the interviews that date back to 2008 appear in a different light now.” 
The eBook contains more than 30 interviews with the cast from 2008 until now and runs over more than 300 pages on the Kindle. In addition, the eBook includes more than 100 images that are combined with audio quotes taken from interviews conducted with the stars. 
For this project The eBook People teamed up with Paris-based American lifestyle journalist Talia Soghomonian. Her work has been featured in InStyle, Elle Girl, Rolling Stone Magazine, Maria Claire, NME, Rock Mag or Le Monde Mag. In the eBook the author analyzes the vampire cult, the phenomenon that is Twilight and takes a look at the cast from her own point of view – something that she is one of the best persons to do, as she has met Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner in person and has interviewed all of them various times. 
“It’s an indispensable collection of original content for every fan, especially when watching all the parts of the series again”, says publisher Matthias Würfl. “And it comes with audio on the enhanced ePub version that runs on the iPad, for example. The Twihards we showed the eBook to – they were delighted.” 
The Author: Talia Soghomonian started out in theater. It was while she was playing a rather pesky, fashion-conscious journalist that she decided to drop theater and “get serious.” After fashion design, she pursued journalism, the main reason being that she wanted to meet U2... She went on to meet some of the world’s biggest stars. Her work has been featured in NME, Rock Mag, Rolling Stone, InStyle, Marie Claire, Grazia, Elle Girl, Le Monde Mag, Guitar Part and She was also a staff writer at the French daily Metro where she wrote about film and music. Originally from Los Angeles, she currently resides in Paris where life is not always easy... Talia has a hard time resisting the chocolate, the architecture and the shoes. 
The Publisher: In his former life as freelance journalist Matthias Würfl has interviewed stars including Pink, Carlos Santana, P.Diddy, Lionel Richie, Carla Bruni and Mick Jagger for titles like InStyle, Playboy and Glamour. He founded The Interview People GmbH ( in 2007 with Michael and Uli Karg. Today they work with outlets in 70 countries selling interviews, features and images from freelance journalists as well as prestigious publishing houses. Recently they have launched a new company, The eBook People (, which provides quality multimedia eBooks using material from their archives.
