Interview with the (Hot!) Vampire: Robert Pattinson on Fame, New Moon and More

by at . Comments

Robert Pattinson can't get a date.

The actor may be playing coy, considering his relationship with Kristen Stewart, but that's what he told The Sydney Morning Herald this week when asked how he remains grounded in the face of overwhelming fame.

"I just don't take any of it seriously. It's just a job and while it's a job I love, girls scream out for Edward, not Robert. I still can't get a date," he said.

During the interview, the newspaper reported Pattinson seemed calmer than usual, perhaps because there's little pressure on him when it comes to New Moon.

"I'm not the lead in the second film. Taylor [Lautner] is. I appear in Bella's dreams. So I'm in it but the focus is not on me. I just have significant moments at the beginning... and the end. I'm more of a supporting role in this one, which is why I felt so free. I didn't have to deal with any of the bullsh-t of the first one... I think I did it better without all those pressures."

Alone on the Street

As much as he loves portraying Edward Cullen, Pattinson is setting up a career path that will help him about being type cast.

"I'm lining up so many different films so it'll be harder to just label me the vampire guy," he said, including Remember Me and Unbound Captives (a western set in 1859) on a list of future projects.

There is one thing the actor regrets.

He wishes he had never taken part in the Twilight soundtrack, saying:

"It looked like I was trying to be cool or something, like Eminem. You know, be in a movie and then do a song for the soundtrack. But I didn't look cool, I just looked ridiculous."

Chain smoking throughout the interview, Pattinson said he can't ever fully relax.

"I don't really need to do stuff to relax or get away because all my interests are part of my job. Like I'll watch movies to be inspired to do other movies. I read books to be inspired. I listen to music to be inspired to write music. Everything I do is to create something."

So far, he's created a rabid fanbase that cannot wait for New Moon to premiere on November 20.

I love you very much.
please love me too.

I have a hard time believing he can't get a date


BS he can't get a date, he could have any woman in the world and probably half of the men too.


Robert is nice. I feel sorry for him how he gets compared to edward all the time! He just plays the guy he is not him.




I feel so sorry for Rob at times, because it has to be very difficult with all the pressures and constantly worrying about his interests that are so tightly wrapped arround his job. And besides that it must really suck to have no privacy. But I have to admit as a fan it so hard to just but out when he's so freaking interesting and irresistible!!


I cant New moon, i want to see his new movie as well that hes working on too (R pattinson i mean) duh... lol




if taylor is handsome he is as well mind you!


why does everyone think his name is acctually edward? its not its rob... i feel so bad for him.... id date u rob
