Rob interview with Epoca (Brasil)
Unlike most actors, the English Robert Pattinson, 25 years of age, thinks the sex scenes are easy. There are other things that being more fear: having to appear shirtless or doing comedy, especially in programs such as Saturday Night Live, as he told Epoca in two interviews in a roundtable format and another exclusive:
EPOCA - All actors say that sex scenes are very awkward to do, you always have a lot of people around. As you and Kristen know each other so well, is it easier? Pattinson - Actually I don’t think doing sex scenes is weird. You know that nobody will say anything, the directors don’t want to embarrass themselves, they will not say how to do it. But it's fun to do it with Kristen, it seems kind of silly. In fact, it becomes more difficult. When you don’t know the other person you won’t say she's doing something silly, or play all the time. If you know the person, it's more risky (laughs).
EPOCA - Kristen Stewart said the wedding scene was as if she were living it. How was it for you?
Pattinson - Mine was easy. Especially in the beginning. There was so much expectation because of the dress, paparazzi everywhere that Kristen was very stressed. As she was walking to the altar, and the camera approached me, I started to get nervous because I saw how she was in shock. So I think that it needed to support and act as if I knew what I was doing (laughs).
EPOCA - With the end approaching, are you thinking “thank God”?
Pattinson - I don’t know yet. I'm working non-stop since I finished. I had a month and a half off after four years. I imagine that when the next is released, it will be different. The series left me stuck to the same person I was when I was 21 years old. And when it finishes, I will be 27, will be a very different situation.
EPOCA - Are you planning a vacation?
Pattinson - Not really (laughs). I'm not very good with holidays. I had two months off and I read a million scripts. I didn’t find anything, if I had, it would have shortened the holidays (laughs). I like being on set. I'm more relaxed when I'm working.
EPOCA - You have played the same character in five films. Does it happen a lot that you get roles offered to you like Edward? Are you not afraid to be this way forever?
Pattinson - Now, not so much. I think my agent doesn’t send me that type of thing, because she knows that I will read a page of something that looks like Twilight and I won’t finish it. So she just sends me things that are different. But I was afraid, yes. Almost immediately after finishing Breaking Dawn, I did Cosmopolis, exactly the kind of movie that I feared. And it kind of answered my question (laughs). It definitely gave me great confidence to think that there will always be different things, you just need to work for them.
EPOCA - You think that's the direction you want to go? Or would you like to do an action film, for example?
Pattinson - If it's ideal. I feel that I haven’t done the movie I really want to do. I do not know what it is, of what type. But I know it exists. I hope to find it soon (laughs).
EPOCA - Do you think that in any future work you will avoid roles that you have to be shirtless?
Pattinson - I have to change your lifestyle if you want to work shirtless. But it seems that every actor in the world is doing a scene like Taylor Lautner. It's crazy. In each film there is a scene where the main actor shows his abs. And I: "Really? You're a regular guy, working at an advertising agency? "(Laughs) It would make no sense, but is a prerequisite for actors now. Maybe I should stay fat...
EPOCA - Could you be more careless with your appearance ifyou did comedy. Do you want to do comedy?
Pattinson - Even comedians have abs! (laughs) And it is impossible to do comedy. People ask me to do Saturday Night Live as part of the promotion of the films and I say, "No chance! Not in a million years. "It is very frightening.
EPOCA - But you were funny at the MTV Awards.
Pattinson - Oh, my God. I did not even say half of the joke, it was awful. It was funny when I've devised. So I do not want to do Saturday Night Live. I wrote down everything and forgot about the first page, I ruined it.
EPOCA - Do you know what you’re going to film next?
Pattinson - I'm deciding what to do in January. But first I will get a six pack (laughs).
