Interviewer: Have you expected Twilight saga to be such a phenomenon?
Kristen: Nobody expected this, we we weren't prepared for it. we didn't even know if we're going to make more movies. But when we were informed that the movie earned so much and that we're going to make more movies we couldn't believe it.
I: How do you deal with this whole attention around you? Is it hard?
K: it is easier when I try not to deal with it.
I: not think about it?
K: Yeah, exactly.
I: Does it bother you that media are speculating about your personal life? Rober and Kristen are together, are not together...
K: Yes, it's weird. It's not natural, it's weird. I don't deal well with it but it's okay. I get where it comes from, it all makes sense.
I: How are you planning to set yourself free from Bella character once you finish making all Twilight movies? Do you think about other roles you might take, which direction will you go?
K: it's very common question. Do I bother that people will look at me through Bella character only and will not be able to see me in different role. Because I'm part of this saga for so long and it's the biggest project that I'm a part of, and so successful. I don't choose roles thinking how they'll influence my career, I'd be so bad at it.
I: What is the biggest downside of the fame?
K: I don't know..but the biggest upside...
I: People always talk about upsides of the fame
K: Defenitely, like... It's crazy when you're an actor and be picked up for movies. We can make choices and it doesn't happen too often.
I: Yes, but I don't think it's a matter of you being famous, more because you work so well in each project, each movie you make.
K: Oh, thanks a lot. Yeah you're probably right.
I: So give me at least one downside of the fame.
K: You've got to talk about yourself for hours, hours and hours and that's like really weird.
I; Okay, last question. You started to act when you were 8, never regreted that you didn't have a "normal" childhood, that you weren't a typical teenager
K: I feel like I was a real teenager. I still have the same friends with whom I grown up. I wouldn't like to go to high school, I went to primary school and it was horrible, so I'm really glad I didn't have to do it, I was studying at home and then spend time with my friends. SO I was like a typical teenager.
More or less that's it :)
Rob's Full Interview. Translation to follow
R: He has been learning Polish for three weeks.
R: He says he have to speak Polish in his new film. He said 'podnieś nogę' in Polish - it means 'lift your leg up'.
I: It's quite a weird request.
R He knows and doesn't mean the interviewer to raise her leg.
I: It's funny he chose this to tell her.
R: He forgot for a moment what it means in English but now he knows and feels embarrassed. He says it in the scene with an elephant.
I: It explains a lot.
I: In Eclipse there are two main plots: love of Bella and Edward and rivalry of Edward and Jacob.
The trio had to shoot many scenes together. She hopes they get along with each other.
R: They always get along with each other. It's wonderful what happened to them but success didn't go to their heads.
Twilight has become a big phenomenon but they were together in it from the start and they supported each other and it's amazing.
I: She has read he didn't want to go to the test shooting because he was afraid he was not able to play perfection of Edward.
R: He says that it's funny because later he decided he would play Edward as so insecure and doubtful about himself as you could only imagine.
I: She asked if the fact he's British helped.
R: Yeah, definitely. Now when he thinks about it, it seems he played himself.
But it's funny because everyone thought Edward should be someone with absolute self-confidence all the time.
He never wanted to play him that way and finally everyone accepted it
I: He was named the best dressed man in the world. It's funny because as a British he rather doesn't mind what he wears, does he?
R: He doesn't. He jokes he is wearing the same clothes all the week.
I: A British friend of hers told her once they don't like when somebody pay attention to what they wear because it's so shallow and facile.
Is it true?
R: He doesn't know if it is some British mind-set but he thinks so. He is embarrassed when he is dressed to kill.
He doesn't like wear new clothes and anything flashy.
I: Last time when she interviewed him he had a ripped jacket. She asked if it was intentionally.
R: He jokes probably it was.
I: It was during Remember Me promotion, it was yellow jacket.
R: He seems not to remember he has the one ;-)
I:What does he think about the title the sexiest man alive?
R: He jokes it's obvious, he thinks there wasn't any competition.
I: The title seems so silly - "the sexiest man alive". She says he is British guy so he is supposed to be cynical.
R: Everyone who was named the sexiest in the world made a special interview about it
but he said: no way, I'm won't make an interview about what is a feeling to be the sexiest man alive.
I: He had to feel idiotic.
R: He said to them: you're insane. Don't you see you look like complete morons?
So he didn't give the interview an thinks and everyone was pissed about it.
I: Do people often think Robert is Edward? That he is the character he plays.
R: He says at the beginning it was frequent. At the fan conventions everyone believed the character stepped from book into real world.
I: Did they call him Edward?
R: Yes, they couldn't understand they're normal people.
I: Friends of hers ask their boyfriends: Will you be my Edward?
How did the movie affect his relationships with women? The expectations have to be high.
R: He is coping with it. He likes pressure. It makes him better.
