Robert Pattinson Talks New Moon
10.23.09 by REELZ
UK magazine Total Film has a new interview with Twilight Saga star Robert Pattinson, about all things New Moon.
On the subject of director Chris Weitz, the British heartthrob was only too eager to compliment his work, saying:
I really love Chris. Not only is he a good director, he's a great guy. God, I sound like such an arse-kisser! But he actually is. He didn't really try and change anything. He saw what me and Kristen were doing and worked within the realms of that."
When asked about Edward's story arc in New Moon, Pattinson came up with a serious answer, showing that he understands the character more than a lot of people give him credit for.
He's always talking in the first one. "I need to make the right decision. I need to do stuff for you, for you, for you." And he makes a decisive move, which is to leave her, and he completely believes it's for her own good. But in his heart, he obviously realises it's completely wrong. And it takes him the whole movie to realise the profundity of his mistake. So that's what his arc is. The world forces him to realise he needs to be with Bella, and there's no way around it.
We're betting thousands of Twilighters swooned after reading those words, before running to watch their Twilight DVD for the hundredth time. Can Pattinson do no wrong? We can't wait to see if loyalties will change after fans finally see New Moon — will Team Jacob take over? Or will Team Edward keep hold of the majority vote? We'll find out in November.
