Speaking ahead of the final EVER installment of the Twilight movies, Robert Pattinson has said that he feels a certain amount of “frustration” when it comes to playing the role. No, he’s not talking about facing Kristen Stewart, the girlfriend and co-star who so scandalously cheated on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders earlier this year.
He is actually talking about how difficult it is to play a character – vampire Edward Cullen – who everyone wants to be perfect.
He said: “It’s funny, people were asking me how I’d feel when it all ends, on the first movie, and I don’t think I’ve ever felt more completely bewildered, knowing that I only have a month of Twilight stuff left to do.”
He added: “I think since the second one, that it’s going to take 10 years to really settle in my brain, and I’m four years into it.”
Speaking to Collider, he also gave his past self some advice on how to best prepare to play the heart-throb vampire: “Start drinking vodka instead of beer, and try to get a six-pack as early as possible because you’ll be a much more successful actor.”
Talking about letting the character go, he said: “I still had the same frustration with trying to play it, the entire way through, right up until the last shot.”
“On the one hand, a lot of the audience projects their idea of Edward onto him. It doesn’t matter what he is. They want him to be a certain way.”
Ohh diddums. TBH we think as long as you stand there all frowny and pale you’ll manage to be a good Edward Cullen!
