The Guardian UK sat down with Robert Pattinson for a one-on-one interview. This interview is awesome! It seems that a lot of interviews with famous people are edited. Most celebrities are very careful about what they say to the point that they aren’t even being themselves anymore. This is not the case with Robert Pattinson. This is a very honest and great interview. He discusses his role in the Twilight Saga and what is next for him.
He talks about his fears of failing at his acting career and becoming an unknown. He doesn’t want to be remembered as “That guy that played Edward in Twilight.” The Guardian UK also discusses Pattinson’s childhood, his parents, and his sisters. They talk about his previous acting, modeling, and music gigs. We have some of our favorite interview questions and answers below:

“Yes! People are like: ‘Oh, the Mark Hamill curse.’ And poor Mark Hamill. Jesus Christ.” He tilts back in the chair and laughs, apparently oblivious to the state of his T-shirt. “I mean, I’m sure he did fine.”
It’s easy to forget that this charming shambles of a man commands at least $12m a movie. The cheekbones are a clue, but his eyes seem further apart than you expect – it’s a model’s face, more attractive in 2D. And Pattinson doesn’t have any swagger or strut about him. As tall as he is, he doesn’t impose. His body language is loose, approachable, self-effacing. He’s not at the summit admiring the view so much as peering down and hoping he doesn’t fall off. “I think of impending doom all the time,” he says with a shrug. Continue Reading
