Rob spoke to The Chicago Sun-Times and had some pretty moving things to say about the end of Twilight. Just don’t count him on missing his golden eye contacts…
“It does feel like a breakup. I do love the guy — and I’m going to miss him,” Pattinson, 24, says during an interview with the Sun-Times on a cool Sunday afternoon from his hotel suite in Santa Monica, Calif. “I prefer to think of ending this franchise like leaving school. It’s the last day of high school.”
On saying goodbye to his golden contacts:
“I’ll be very glad not to put those contacts in anymore or have to put on the sparkling makeup,”
On Twilight being a huge part of his life:
“It’s been amazing to play the same character through so many adventures. And it’s so strange because my life has changed so much over these years, but ‘Twilight’ and Edward Cullen will always be a part of me. It’s been my whole life. My whole 20s,” he says. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Has he seen any Breaking Dawn footage?
“I haven’t really seen any of the footage, so I’m not sure how any of it turned out. All I can tell you is, it felt right. It was from the heart.
“I’m as curious as any ‘Twilight’ fan,”
On TomStu being recognized before him:
“I was in New Mexico doing a road trip across the states with my friends. I didn’t get recognized at first, but then a woman recognized one of my friends because he was next to me in a paparazzi picture — from two years ago!
“Literally, we were in the middle of nowhere and this woman turns around and screams, ‘Aren’t you Robert Pattinson’s friends?’ Then her head turned again and she looked at me. “She was in utter shock,” he says. “This took place at a fairground outside of nowhere and I thought we’d have to find her an ambulance, which wouldn’t have been easy.”
On the birth scene in Breaking Dawn:
“It was insane intense,” he says. Edward can either lose her or give her a bite and thus immortality. “It was a pretty traumatic scene for me to do as an actor and, frankly, horrible for me emotionally.
“Edward has tried for so long not to turn Bella into a vampire and now … well, it’s very sad. He feels like he has let her down.”
“Now stop asking or I’ll be in trouble.”
