Turns out he has a good deal to say about it. In an interview with the Washington Post, Pattinson touches on his favorite movie of the series, the intensity of “Twilight” fans and more. You can read the full interview here; some highlights are below.
Which “Twilight” film is most meaningful to him: “Definitely the first one. By a huge margin. It was just an entirely different world. For one thing, it was just a really, really fun movie to shoot. It was difficult and it was crazy, but the experience was so different. … There was definitely some excitement there, that it could either be a total miss or something could happen with it.”
Encounters with Twi-hards: “I mean, it’s kind of exciting, but it just seems so separate. It’s always seemed so separate — that whole part of it — from doing the actual movies. That’s never changed for me. It’s a totally independent part of the job. You always get asked more about that aspect of it than anything else, you know, all the screaming and stuff. And I’ve never had a single lucid, analytical thought about it. It still just seems like screaming to me.”
On whether his relationship with Kristen Stewart was used to sell the movies: “[Laughs] For one thing, it would be a terrible marketing tool, and it’s not utilized very well at all. People will say anything. I’m still amazed that people even believe anything [that’s said about us]. I mean, it’s one of the craziest things about the whole situation, where you can see the whole — is paradigm the right word? — of celebrity gossip, celebrity culture type stuff that’s literally entirely made up. There’s a story line. You have a set character and your story line is written for you. And it doesn’t matter what you do.”
On whether he’d do a “Star Wars” movie: “Oh, absolutely. In a heartbeat. … I was talking to somebody the other day about how sometimes having all the merchandising and everything is kind of exciting. I still want to have a light saber.”
