Exlusive interview with Rob from NEW! magazine

There’s always been speculation oer your relationship with Kristen. What’s going on with you two?

Kristen and I have lived a great adventure together with the Twilight films. We are very close and no-one can understand what we’ve been through the last few years. When we’re together, we understand eachother so well we don’t have to explain what we’re thinking. Kristen is a wonderful girl.

You’re in the middle of all the hype around the Twilight films- How are you dealing with it?

It’s not difficult to be in my position! you’re very well looked after and you don’t have to exort much effort to do anything. An actor in my position is very spoiled and so I have nothing to complain about! this is a pretty good life actually!

Do women constantly throw themselves at you?

No! (carly; Rob, I do NOT believe you, you little fibber!) But I’m not trying to attract attention, either. I also don’t want to disappoint girls who might think I’m very cool and smooth, which I’m not (carly; Rob do you not realise that you saying that actually does make you smooth and very cool? I’m just sayin’!) I’m still quite shy although that seems something of an attraction, too {laughs}

Can you go out and about without mobs chasing you?

Yes. I simply avoid going to popular places in LA or London and I’ve been so tired the last several months that I can’t even imagine going to clubs and partying anymore. I wind up going to be at 10pm most nights because I’m exhausted. I spend most of my time living in hotel rooms, reading scripts and listening to music or playing music with my friends. But recently I had chance to spend time in London whilst filming Bel Ami and I was pleasently surprised I was able to walk around without attracting any attention. It was wonderful! I can’t do that over here in the US. People tell me Paris is the same so I may spend some time over there, too! Sitting in cafes reading La Monde and smoking  Gitanes. Actually, I’m trying to stop smoking so cancel the smoking part! [laughs]

Your female fans would love to know how your own personality resembles Edwards…

So would I! [laughs] I do bear some similarities in the sense that I’m not good at romance. In New Moon, Edward leaves Bella without any explanation because he that’s what’s best for her. We all make those kinds of blunders in our romantic lives. It’s happened in the past where I broke up with a girl because I just didn’t think it was going to work out between us. And i’ve been been dumped without explanation aswell. I also think I lack basic finesse when it comes to women. I give up too easily even if I am attracted to someone.

why do you think people are so obsessed with the Twilight movies?

There’s a tremendous anticiaption with when Edward and Bella are going to become lovers. That’s the great excitement about watching their story evolve and seeing where it leads them. You want the anticipation to be almost unbearable and in Eclipse Edward is more open and sure of himself. He’s also more vulnerable now and less severe about everything. That made it much more interesting for me as an actor in this film, where Edward can show sides of himself and just look pale and grim.

In your recent film, Remember Me, you play and angry teenager. Were you a rebel at that age?

I don’t think I was angry as a teenager, although I will confess to being confused and frustrated. I suppose I had my moments of existential rebellion and could be a bit of a pain at times. For the most part, I think It takes time to find ones identity and define ones ambitions and goals in life, My experience wasn’t that different from most of my friends, I wanted to change the world, make things better, make my mark. Then you grow ubored with being disillusioned and alienated and now I’m trying to enjoy things more, it’s less stressful! You don’t have to change the world to be happy.

Are you concerned about your fame getting in the way of being seen as a proper actor?

You look at how people are judged in the public. The majority of the people who get beaten by it are the people who are seen all the time. So the less you’re seen the you’re alright. As long as you keep attempting to make quality films then eventually your name  starts with something other than “meaningless celebrity”. It’s a difficult battle to make more that your celebrity, people like Johnny Depp have done that. He’s not judged at all for his public image, just his work is judged. It’s a lot of discipline and a lot of hiding.

When you look back at this time in your life then years from now, what will you think of it all?

That this was wonderfully insane time in my life that was actually a lot less fun than maybe should have been for me. I think I’m only just beginning to enjoy everything about it!
