Michael Sheen talks about Rob and 'Edward'

Love this TwiEdward cap.

Speaking  to the press at the Cinema Society and Thierry Mugler screening of Midnight in Paris, Michael  was asked about Rob.

I think Robert has been very clever in the way that he has tried to branch out and do lots of other different things,” Michael says. “Rob has been trying to do that while he’s been doing the Twilight series and all but I think it’s going to take a long time. I think he’ll always be Edward [Cullen] for a whole generation or maybe a few generations of people and it will be difficult to get away from that. But he seems to have a good head on his shoulders.”

“Rob is one of the biggest stars in the world now because of the Twilight series and that can be a good thing or a bad thing,” Michael says. “It’s like when people have played James Bond and you get so associated with one character it means you have a huge audience and there’s a lot of people very interested. But at the same time it might put certain people off casting you as other characters.”

And you will always be Lucian, David Frost and most def Aro to me. lol Just kidding. I can always accept another person's view on things. And this is def just Mr. Sheen's... which is still cool. Because I love Edward. Quick question. Did you guys see 'Edward' in Rob's portrayal of his character in 'Water for Elephants'? Yeah... I didn't think so. lol

Well, Rob was well received in WFE and in 'Remember Me' and Cronenberg signed him up for 'Cosmopolis' so I'd say Rob is doing it the right way. Slow but sure, one movie at a time.
