Twilight Q&A: Robert Pattinson talks hair, music and sudden fame
Twilighters, calling your response to our Q&A “enthusiastic” would be an understatement. You weren’t afraid to share how much you TOTES LOVE Stephenie Meyer’s (im)mortal characters, the books and, of course, the actors behind the steamy vampire lore.
And we’ve got the answers!
While everyone’s favourite mortal-in-love-with-a-vampire, Kristen Stewart, was not able to participate in the forum due to scheduling issues, with apologies from Summit Entertainment for this unanticipated setback, the devastatingly handsome Rpattz and Canuck beauty Rachelle Lefevre were on-hand to answer a selected number of mycineplex members’ questions – maybe yours!
Cineplex.com brings you a little closer to Robert Pattinson himself with the first of our two-part Q&A with the cast members from the film everyone is talking about!
The affable Brit reveals how he’s handling fame, if he’ll appear in the Twilight sequels and how he feels about living up to the legend of Edward. And yes ladies, he ran his fingers through that perfectly dishevelled hair – a lot.
Q: Robert, is music a big part of your life? -meemee
Robert Pattinson: Music is kindof a big part of my life – not enormous. I go through phases, especially when I’m in London, where all I do is play music. But generally when I’m in the States, I watch more films and stuff.
Q: Hello darlings. My name is Stefanie I hope you are doing well. I'm so excited for Twilight!
My question is for Kristen and Rob. Kristen you sang in the movie Into The Wild - do you plan on singing some more in the future? And Rob do you plan on doing anything with your music soon? Much Love. Stefanie.
RP: [Laughs] So weird…Nobody actually asks about Twilight anymore. I don’t really plan on doing anything with the music as of today. Yeah, not for awhile…
Q: Robert : How do you feel about all this sudden fame?
RP: Sudden fame is kindof…I’m not really sure how to deal with it yet cause I’m still in this kindof Twilight bubble where I don’t know what would really happen to me in reality, in my normal life. I don’t really know even if I am famous, other than being in magazines and stuff. Or maybe that’s it – that’s being famous. [Laughs]. But I have no idea.
Q: For Rob, do you use gel, hairspray, or just the natural oils for your hair?
RP: What are natural oils? [Laughs] I just use natural oils for my hair – yup. [Laughs]
Q: In all the movies you've seen in your life, is there a role that you would have loved to "steal" from another actor/actress?
RP: Hmmm…There are a lot of roles that I’ve read the script for and then seen what the actor did and wish I had stolen it but I can’t really say any by name. I don’t know…I can’t really judge because the films which I like and the performances which I like [are] because the actor was in that performance and there’s no guarantee you’d be able to do it. I don’t think there’s really any.
Q: What was it like to take on a role that so many people have expectations of? And also now that you’ve done Twilight do you think you would return for any future sequels?
RP: Expectations never really mean anything to me. I don’t really care what people’s expectations are of anything [Laughs]. But I mean I’m so much more critical than the harshest critic could be. And as far as sequels go, I’m signed for the next two – like "New Moon" and "Eclipse" – if they decide to make them.
