From Twilight Poison
Fotogramas just published their complete interview with Rob. Some quotes are familiar because Fotogramas released a teaser a few weeks ago, and we posted the complete translation of that. Here’s the complete interview and full translation featuring new quotes.
What scene in New Moon left a nice memory to you?
Probably the Volterra scene, where I have to step into the light. There were many extras and many fans there. Some fans traveled across the world to be there.
Why was it so important?
I felt a huge sense of responsability, being in front of so many that are so obsessed with this story. It was nevre wrecking, but I never felt closer to the character before this.
What about the scene where your character leaves Bella?
It was strange, but the fans helped.To them, Bella and Edward’s relationship is ideal. You can feel the weight of the pressure.
Is there anything you have in common with Edward?
I guess. Sometimes I can be very dumb too. And I’m very possessive and obsessive like him.
What are you obsessed about?
In a way, yes (laughs). How am I obsessive? I guess I have very specific ideas as how I want my job to be, and how I want to be seen. I don’t pay attention to anyone, and I don’t have a publicist for that reason. I can’t stand the idea of someone telling me what to do. I’m very meticulous, and I want to be able to control everything on my own.
Have you gotten used to the Twilight phenomenon yet?
I’m still struggling, but I’m also more calm now. Filming is now scary, because I love the people I work with and I rarely have a problem with the script.
Do you like that your fans want to know more about you?
I think the best way to do that is through my work. Interviews are a risky thing because nobody is that interesting. But it’s also the fact that I still don’t know who I am. I don’t want to be just a character in society.
What’s the weirdest experience you’ve had with a fan?
There’s so many to tell, though now there’s fewer experiences because we have security now. One day a 90 year old woman came up to me, and it’s funny because she said the same things that 12 year olds say to me (laughs),
Has your life style changed a lot? How do you feel when you finally have the chance to leave the studio and live real life?
That is the problem. I never leave the set. Since January 14th I’ve been to thre different movie sets. I only had 3 days off. I can’t really say if my life has changed that much because I’m still inside a studio, and I will be next year too. But I feel like I’m the same person. Don’t know if that’s a good thing.
And have you felt any changes in your career since Twilight?
I don’t know yet. I did a new movie that comes out next year (RM) and I’ve been offered jobs that used to only dream about. But it’s scary. I don’t have to audition anymore, but I don’t want to be in movies just for the sake of it.
Is it really scary?
Yes. You always wonder if you’ll be part of a super production, because without a movie like this, you won’t find a the jobs that you’re looking for. And then after making a movie like that, that has a very specific audience, people want to tell you how to reach the audience from then on. Thanks to that, there’s a lot of limitations. When nobody watches your movies, you have the luxury of doing whatever you want. There’s pros and cons in both sides of the situation.
Are you afraid that the success you have now thanks to Twilight will fade one day? I’m working so much that it’s like I’m living in an alternate reality. The shooting schedules are so long that I feel like I’m a doctor. And the doctors I talk to about this say the same thing. It’s like you don’t know what’s going on outside of work because it keeps you away from your family and friends.
Love is the main subject in this movie. How do you not fall in love as much as you do in film?
Easy. I have to remind myself I get paid to do this (laughs). And with that, there’s plenty of other connotations. That’s one of the main differences.
Are you a very romantic person?
When I saw the movie Titanic I didn’t think it was a movie just for women. The only romantic thing I ever did was hide flowers for a girl, she thought it was anither guy and he didn’t correct her, so that didn’t turn out very good for me (he can’t stop laughing now).
Have you ever had your heart broken like Bella?
(he takes him time) I’m trying to think of a stupid response, but no (laughs). I can’t think of anything. No, I haven’t had my heart broken.
