Rob and Kristen's Interview with The Philippine Daily Enquirer

Rob and I have made out in this movie more than I can possibly imagine,” declared Kristen, wearing a very short skirt that showed off her legs. “It was weird at first. It got comfortable. When we did the love scene, to be honest with you, I wasn’t nervous about it. It was easy to make fun of it because it wasn’t shot from beginning to end. It was very memory-oriented. Everything in this movie is very much through Bella’s perspective so it was ‘piece-y.’ We shot in fragments. There were lots of close-ups.”

Unlike some actors, Kristen doesn’t need a drink to get in the mood. “My job doesn’t drive me to drink,” she simply said.

Kristen cited the three’s recent big event, imprinting their hand and feet in cement in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater, when asked to talk about their friendship.

“To be in the middle of everything that we are in, to have them on either side of me is amazing,” she remarked. “A perfect example is when we put our hands in cement. I felt fairly ridiculous looking down on my hands. They were so tiny. I was just thinking, God, I can’t believe this is happening. Then you look to the right and left and it makes sense. I couldn’t have done it without them. It would have been a very different experience.”

She added, “Every time I realize that I haven’t talked to Taylor in a while, it worries me. It shocks me. I go, whoa, where is he? I have to talk to him.”

Looking into the future, Kristen said she does not make long-range plans. “I’m not the type of person who can sit down and map out a career,” she said. “As soon as you start doing that, there’s no way for you to know what you’re going to love. I don’t understand that mentality. I’ve gotten exceptionally lucky. The things that have spoken to me, like ‘Twilight’ and ‘Snow White,’ could have been made for 100 bucks. I would have done it, both of them. I’m led by other things rather than how high the profile of a film is. That means nothing to me. Whatever happens, happens. Hopefully, I stay in a position where I can do things that provoke me.”


Breaking into his impish grin, Robert said about an actor in a much-anticipated scene in “Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” “I thought he was a real priest in the scene when we were getting married. He kept forgetting what our characters’ names were. He called us Robert and Kristen. She told me that he wasn’t a real priest.”

Asked how many beds were used in his bed-shaking sex scene with Kristen, Robert laughed and replied, “It was just one bed but it was a trick bed. It was unusual to do a sex scene when there’s a whole stunt set-up. There were three guys behind the bed who controlled the bed. I’m trying to do a sex scene and a guy is cueing me for when the bed breaks. I’m also looking at the big guy lying underneath, on the floor.”

He explained, “When you’re doing a sex scene, people don’t really give you that much pressure on the set because for one thing, a director doesn’t want to step in and suggest how he would do it (laughing). Because it’s probably uncomfortable for him, too.”

“I was protective of Kristen,” he admitted about filming the scene. “She is so much more comfortable with her body than I am. I was thinking, we must keep the sheet up in between takes. But that was really more for her. That was probably the scariest part – having to be judged by your physicality. I was trying to avoid that in the entire series.”

Robert did workouts to be in shape for the shirtless scenes. “Yeah, for a while,” he said. With a chuckle, he quipped, “But as soon as I didn’t have to take my shirt off, I stopped.”

Kristen's Interview with Lisa Marks

Admitting you have a boyfriend shouldn’t really be headline news, but then Kristen Stewart is - albeit begrudgingly - used to her life being scrutinised. For more than a year, legions of Twilight fans across the world have suspected that Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who oozes brooding charm as vampire Edward Cullen in the films, were more than onscreen lovers. And now they have proof the romance they’ve seen blossom onscreen has spilled over into real life.

Not that Stewart actually says the words out loud. In a rare slip of the tongue, she recently revealed she was excited to be spending more time in Britain because “my boyfriend is English” - which is as close as the 21-year-old will get to discussing her relationship with her Twilight co-star.

Talking to her today, it becomes obvious that while acting is her craft, protecting her private life has become her other full-time job.

Looking pretty and much softer than some photos portray, she’s dressed in skinny jeans and a T-shirt, and happy to talk about how it feels to be at the centre of the Twilight storm.

Her life changed dramatically when she won the coveted role of Bella Swan almost five years ago, and as the fourth instalment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, hits cinemas this week, she says she’s finally come to terms with her superstardom.

Often criticised for being unapproachable, or sometimes moody, when snapped by the paparazzi or on the red carpet, Stewart is sanguine about those moments, especially when she weighs them up against the amazing opportunities that have come her way as part of her speedy transition from anonymous to global phenomenon.

“Yes, I feel more comfortable at times now, but it really is about what mood you’re in,” she says. “If the mood strikes and if you’re feeling unselfconscious that day, you can have fun with it. The trouble with the red carpet is that it’s hard to fake it. So, if you’re having an introspective day or not thinking clearly, it comes across. Then people think that’s who you are all the time, but it’s not - that’s just five minutes of my life.”

She admits she’s had to learn to lighten up. “It’s easier now that I realise people don’t want me to be so serious all the time,” she says. “I used to care so much about certain questions. For instance, sometimes someone will say very frivolously, ‘What does the Twilight experience mean to you?’ And I say, ‘Do you want a quick answer or for me to tell you what I really think? Because that’s going to take a while.’”

This letting go has clearly made life easier for her. “You can only be concerned about what matters to you,” she says. “I approach all of this as a job. Acting is what I do, and I’m lucky to have such an awesome career, but it’s a slippery slope when you start to let things affect you personally. Keeping your head down is much better.”

As for Pattinson, all she’ll say is what’s hers is hers. “I’m selfish. I think, that’s mine, and I’d like whatever is mine to remain that way. It’s a funny game to play. I always tell myself I’m never going to give anything away, because there’s never any point or benefit for me.”

Her iconic character, Bella, is set to give herself away to Edward in Breaking Dawn, with a much-anticipated vampire wedding. There’s been some criticism over the years that Bella isn’t a positive role model for young girls, but Stewart loves playing the character.

“[Bella’s] caught up in something that feels much bigger than her, and she’s in a relationship that’s by no means unequal,” the Californian native explains. “Edward is so invested in their relationship, but he’s weaker-minded and doesn’t think they can overcome such adversity. But she has faith that it will work out, so I think she’s more courageous than Edward. I understand people think her weakness might be that she’s had to give up her life for him, but don’t you think that’s valiant?”

Another fan of Bella - and Stewart - is the film’s director, Bill Condon (Dreamgirls). He campaigned for the job because he was desperate to work with her, even admitting he has a soft spot for his leading lady.

When asked why he took on Breaking Dawn, he was clear: “Because it’s all told from Bella’s point of view.” He adds, “And my Kristen Stewart crush, you know? The idea that she was going to take this journey - it was exciting to collaborate with her on that.”

Starting out as a child actor, Stewart was plucked from hundreds of hopefuls to play Jodie Foster’s daughter in the 2002 thriller Panic Room. The pair has a lot in common, with Foster also having to navigate the choppy waters of show business as she transitioned from child star to fully-fledged actor.

After the two met up again at an Academy Awards after-party, Stewart revealed the Oscar winner had offered to give her any help she might need.

“That was awesome,” says Stewart. “It had been a long time since I’d seen her, and a lot had happened. I think it wasn’t the way she expected my life to go.”

Foster admits she was surprised Stewart chose to continue acting rather than move behind the scenes - something which might seem more natural for the often reclusive star. “I didn’t think she’d choose to be an actor,” says Foster. “She’s a lot like me; she’s uncomfortable being an externally emotional person, beating her chest and crying every five minutes. I felt she was such an intelligent technician, so interested in camera work - I thought that would translate to other things.”

Stewart says meeting Foster during Panic Room was a defining moment in her life. “We got to know each other really well and it means something to me that it meant a lot to her. When you’re a kid and you have an important experience with someone, you have no idea if it was the same for them, or if you were just some kid.”

She’d like to take up Foster’s offer of advice one day. “We’ve never sat down and had a specific conversation about making that transition [from child to adult actor], but we’re both strongly influenced by caring for what we do. When we worked together, she said, ‘I’m never going to act in another movie; I’m going to direct,’ but she continues to act. Like me, she’s compelled to make movies. I’m lucky she was my first experience of what a moviestar is.”

Like many child-to-adult stars, Stewart is keen to look for roles that take her beyond the one which made her famous. Her solid performance as rockstar Joan Jett in The Runaways garnered rave reviews last year, and she’s scored upcoming roles in Snow White and the Huntsman and the much-anticipated On the Road, based on Jack Kerouac’s novel. Would she move to the stage to prove she’s more than a one-role woman?

“I’ve had little experience watching or reading plays,” she says. “I know nothing of what that world is like. I can’t imagine doing something again and again every night.”

She shifts in her seat as she warms up to the subject. “If I find out we have to shoot a scene again, I go bonkers,” she says. “I know I’m going to remember the moment I’ve already experienced and have to get back there. With theatre, you have to find a new moment every night. I think once something is lived, it’s lived. I’m relieved to have it out.”

So maybe theatre isn’t such a good idea? She pauses. “But being in front of an audience would feel really good. If you have a group of people or a good director watching you, you feel naked, and that’s OK. That sensation puts you on edge, so you feel instantly emotional.”

Pushing herself is one reason she took the role of Marylou in On the Road, set for release next year. It’s the first time Jack Kerouac’s iconic ’50s beat generation novel will be on the big screen, and a brave move for any actor, let alone one who’s so closely associated with a vampire franchise.

“Every experience shapes you and helps you build confidence,” Stewart says. “Recently, I’ve had a chance to play characters outside my comfort zone. Not that I’ve ever stuck with anything that feels comfortable, but sometimes you’re drawn to things you relate to. I’ve definitely tested myself.”

She credits her experience on Twilight with giving her the tools to take on the literary classic. “I’ve dealt with the pressures of having a fan base that eagerly awaits the product, but On the Road is a different level - people have waited five decades for it,” she says. “This character is so far away from who I am, I had to push myself. It made me realise I can do more character pieces, instead of just playing the ingénue.”

Work aside, she’s already planning what to do when she eventually has time to herself. Her mum, Jules Mann-Stewart is from Maroochydore, Queensland, and studied at the University of Sydney. “I wish I could go back to Australia,” Stewart says. “I went a couple of times when I was younger, but I was fairly little, so I don’t really remember it. I’d love to see it as an adult.”

With all the craziness in her life, Stewart is grateful to have friends and family as her anchor; buying into the hype isn’t her style.

“It’s rare for me to do anything that betrays who I am. I feel rooted where I am,” she says. “I’d have a real problem with selling out and not being myself."

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 is in cinemas November 17.

Rob Interview with The Herald Sun

He's been named one of the world's 100 most influential people but Robert Pattinson couldn't look less conspicuous if he tried.

Lounging on a plush sofa at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, his white T-shirt features a tiny rip front and centre, his shoelaces are unlaced and his baseball cap is on backwards.

In short, he's disarmingly understated and approachable, immediately offering a cheery hello that quickly reaches his blue-green eyes.

"I can't wait for this film to come out," he says of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.

"I feel like we've been talking about it for months. Well, I have!"

He's the first to admit that this movie is different from the previous three, which are also based on the novels by Stephenie Meyer.

Not only does it signal the beginning of the end of this billion-dollar franchise, but it also takes the core message of abstinence and gives it a twist; not only do Edward and Bella, played by Kristen Stewart, his real-life girlfriend, get married, they also - shush, don't tell anyone! - have sex (which is quickly followed by the arrival of their first child).

The guitar-playing actor reveals that the harrowing childbirth scenes were tough to watch, given that Bella was writhing in pain and covered in blood for most of the scenes.

He not only found the on-set experience intense but also had some trouble coming to terms with his place in the movie.

"Kristen really connected to this film - she thought that it was Bella's journey and that it was really important. But when I first read the script, I was so frustrated because what is Edward supposed to do, when he's on the sidelines, worrying?" muses the Londoner.

"By the time I was called on to the set, Kristen had gone so far beating herself up that I was terrified - and I hadn't been terrified since the first movie.

"We shot the childbirth scenes as continuous sequence, from when she goes into labour to the birth, so we really had to commit to what we were doing.

"By then, Edward's really beaten down and has to give up his ego.

"It's only in part 2 that Edward rebuilds himself again and I admire him for that."

The 25-year-old heartthrob says it was emotionally challenging to act around all the special effects that show Bella's emaciated body giving birth to baby Renesmee.

"Kristen's head was attached to a dummy body which had gore all over it, and she was wearing a torn hospital gown. It looked unbelievably bad. It was more like a Saw movie than a Twilight movie.

"And the dummy was so realistic I was shocked when I first walked on set - to see anyone you know look like that is just horrible."

Did he try on Bella's fake pregnancy belly?

"I wanted to but they wouldn't let me," he laughs.

Hype around the movie has been growing ever since the producers released photographs of the much anticipated Edward/Bella wedding.

Pattinson remembers the day they said their "I do's" with some amusement, mostly because as the groom no one was interested in his outfit.

"We had all these paparazzi helicopters above and no one asked me to hide as it was all about the dress," he recalls in wonderment.

"I was standing there in the wide open wearing a tuxedo and Kristen was shrouded in secrecy with this dress on."

He's more than conscious that his legions of fans (aka "Twihards") are desperate to see the movie and while even Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, has said that she wouldn't want his level of fame, he's extremely level-headed about the attention he gets.

"Luckily, it's not every day you have to deal with loads and loads of people because it's quite tiring," he says.

"But people are coming out to say they like you and you have so many people in the world saying they don't like you, so you have to appreciate it because they're on your side."

He's also learned to make the attention work to his advantage.

"While shooting Water for Elephants we were doing an important scene and there were paparazzi messing everything up.

"There was also a crowd of fans who were staying way back and being respectable, while the paps were being a---.

"As I was driving past the fans I said, 'Listen, I can't get out because of all these guys, but if you get rid of the paparazzi, then you can have a better position and I'll come and sign stuff'. And so they got rid of them. They chased them away.

"When you have 300 girls coming at you, it doesn't matter how tough those eight guys are!"

Pattinson reveals that he's now trying his hand at script writing ("I've written a few screenplays and I'd like to do more"), but his immediate aim is to try to find interesting roles.

He's recently completed Bel Ami with Christina Ricci and David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, but says: "I'm not interested in doing star vehicles.

"You want ensembles, you don't want it to be 'Oh the Twilight guy's got a movie coming out'. The directors don't want that either, they want it to be their movie."

Surely he feels more secure now that he has a reputed $55 million in the bank and the world at his feet?

"Kind of. And then not at all," he says candidly. "I feel like I have to think more about what I can do.

"I find I have to convince more people of my worth now than when I wasn't getting jobs at all. As soon as you start getting paid for stuff, your options become limited so quickly."

That said, he's keen to end the press tour for Breaking Dawn and get back to work.

"I've done nine films in four years," he sighs, before adding with a smile, "It's completely ridiculous. This is the longest break I've had in that time but you know what, I already feel like I need to get back to work."
