Thanks to the amazing [info]debcupti for the translation

Unless you live in another planet, you certainly know the actor Robert Pattinson plays the wonderful vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight and New Moon. You also know that the next installment of the Saga, written by the american writter Stephenie Meyer, Eclipse, will come to the theaters soon, more specifically on june 30th. Now, in the third chapter of the story, Bella has to choose between vampire Edward and werewolf Jacob. You probably already know the path this will take.

So, how about something you don't know? We were very lucky. We interviewed Robert Pattinson in Los Angeles, two days after his 24th birthday, and we asked him about his work in Eclipse, what to expect from Breaking Dawn and how does he handle the pressures of fame. He also talked about who he's a fan of and why he doesn't deserve a spot in the best dressed and sexiest men lists.

A: First and foremost, happy belated birthday! Well, since you play a character that never grows old, how do you deal with birthdays?

R: Playing a vampire makes me feel like I'm getting older faster than I actually am, cause every six months I come back to the set and everyone says: "What have you been doing? It seems like you're one year older." I turned 24 and I feel like 35.

A: Eclipse opens very soon. Do you think the fans will be surprised?

R: Twilight had a story more focused on Edward and Bella and New Moon was more about Jacob. So, Eclipse is interesting cause everyone has their place and the audience can see Edward, Bella and Jacob interacting with each other.

A: And to you, what was the biggest challenge in playing Edward this time around?

R: Edward lives different emotions in Eclipse. In the first two movies, he's a lot more distant to everyone, but now he needs to be a part of the world and not be indifferent if he wants to keep his relationships.

A: Do you have a favotire scene?

R: I like the scene where Bella thinks she's cheating on me with Jacob and Edward has to deal with it and forgive her. It's one of the most interesting scenes.

A: How would you describe the experience of working with David Slade?

R: It was exciting, cause David came up and said: "I wanna make something really different." And I think he succeeded. There will be a huge contrast between Eclipse and the other ones.

A: There are rumors that Breaking Dawn will be in 3D, what do you think of that?

R: I see myself in 3D all day [laughs]. I can't even imagine the movie in 3D, to be honest, but I think it's cool.

A: There's still a little time left before the Twilight Saga's over, but how do you think you'll feel when it's all done?

R: Between movies, I always forget how much I like the character. It's very comfortable and indulging to be able to come back to Edward, experiment and develop my performance in each film. But it's hard to think about this whole experience. It all happened so fast and exploded in such a short amount of time, it's like a supernova. I think it'll take me ten years to process all of this.

A: Do you know what you'll be doing before shooting Breaking Dawn?

R: I just wrapped a movie called Bel Ami, with Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas, and I'm about to start shooting Water For Elephants.
A: And how are the roles you play in those movies?

R: In Bel Ami, I play a parisian for whom it's impossible to have any empathy. He treats badly anyone who does him any favors, but he ends up with a lot of money, which I think is quite realistic [laughs].

A: And what about Water For Elephants?

R: The movie's set around the time of the Great Depression and I play a guy who drops out of College and join the circus.

A: So, you actually work with elephants?

R: Yes. It's a great story, an amazing cast, a very good director and a spetacular movie, without any special effects, but one of the things that caught my attention were the elephants. I met them, and I'm going to work with them, it's wonderful. Do you know elephants purr? I found that out.

A: With each one of your characters have you learned the most?

R: Besides Edward, I'd say it was Salvador Dalí in Little Ashes. I really changed my way to observe acting. But I think every character that I play has been defining my personality for that particular moment.

A: It seems like you work almost non stop. Do you have any vacation plans?

R: Not yet. Maybe after Breaking Dawn, but I feel like I don't have to. This job is like being on vacation, or at least it's not a heavy work. It's great going to work everyday.

A: Do you ever feel lonely?

R: I think that, since I work all day, I kinda live an isolated life. Most conversations I have are about the same subject and people sorta dictate the way I'm supposed to behave.

A: You're being considered the most famous actor in the world. How do you deal with all this attention?

R: I spend a lot of time hiding. There are good days and bad days, and I'd like to not panic about those things. But I think I try to keep work separate from my personal life, and with that, my ego hasn't been affected much. I don't get out of London if it's not because of work, but that doesn't mean I spend most of my time in Los Angeles, going to Hollywood parties.

A: Have you ever had a fan moment with someone famous?

R: I sat next to David and Victoria Beckham in a restaurant the first time I went to Los Angeles and I acted a bit like a fan.

A: Of whom, David or Victoria?

R: [laughs] A little bit of both, it was just surreal to me.

A: You said that success hadn't gone up to your head. But what about all of those times you're considered "the best dressed" or "the sexiest"? Isn't it cool?

R: I know that next year there'll be someone else on the list. Actually, those things make me laugh. This morning, I was leaving the gym and suddenly I realized that, not only I was wearing my old gym clothes and beat up sneakers, but I was also wearing black socks, the ones you wear with a two-piece-suit. I think that this, sometimes cancels the sexy and best dressed.

A: What's the weirdest question anyone's ever asked you?

R: People ask me if I believe in vampires, and I don't. Someone also asked me once the color of my tooth brush and I couldn't remember.

A: And what's the weirdest thing you've ever read about you?

R: That I was the best dressed. Who thinks that, obviously never saw me wearing gym clothes.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse stars KRISTEN STEWART, ROB PATTINSON, and TAYLOR LAUTNER talk about the pressures of promoting a blockbuster film:

Kristen: ''Things have looked up for me as soon as I stopped worrying about it and relinquished the control — not even relinquished the control, just realized that I never had it. As soon as I stopped getting nervous and freaked out by stuff, I had a much better time.''

ROB: ''When you first start doing it, it is so overwhelming that you think it's the most important thing in the world, the whole thing about public image and persona and stuff. And then you realize the whole thing about marketing is just having your face everywhere and that's it. It doesn't matter what you say.

TAYLOR: ''I think just by repetition and experience it's made it more comfortable. It got a lot better when I learned that the easiest way to go about it is just be honest and be yourself.'' —As told to Nicole Sperling

Rob Talks About Georges Duroys, his character in Bel Ami

After three Twilights, Bella Swan is still a virgin. Which is one more virgin than you can expect to find in Robert Pattinson's forthcoming, sex-filled period piece Bel Ami, co-starring Uma Thurman.

"It's about a character called Georges Duroy, who is a broke ex-soldier in Paris in 1890. Basically, he has no drive. He's just jealous of everything. I quite liked the story," Pattinson says, describing his role as "a completely amoral, evil character."

Despite the European period setting, he also believes the themes are universal.

"Kids nowadays, everyone feels entitled. You see someone who wants to do a job, but they don't want to do an entry level job. 'I want $100,000 a year as soon as I'm out of the gate.'

"That's exactly what this guy is like. But he's completely talentless. The only thing he does is, by accident, he finds this guy he's in the army with in a brothel, and this other guy wants to impress him, so he gives (Georges) some money and invites him around.

"It ends up being like he invited the devil into his house. (Georges) seduces his wife and seduces all his wife's friends. Every single influential woman he can get, he has an affair with. And he ends up screwing over the entire society and making millions and millions of francs. It's a story about how the s---s can completely win sometimes, just by doing absolutely nothing and stabbing everybody in the back."

Rob couldn't be in a difficult relationship

LOS ANGELES — Ask many a teenage girl to which team are they most loyal and it's unlikely you'll hear about the Blackhawks, White Sox, Bears or Cubs. You'll probably get an earful about "hits" of a different kind from the new movie "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse." You're Team Edward if you love the moody vampire Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson. Team Jacob is for fans of the usually shirtless, chiseled abs of Taylor Lautner's werewolf persona, Jacob Black.

Recently, I was a guest of Summit Entertainment in Los Angeles, talking with both actors, who are now on their third installment of fang-filled love tug of war.

You both have been through three different directors on these movie adaptations. What's been the difference for you?

Robert Pattinson: I don't know necessarily if it shows in the final film, but the difference between Chris Weitz ("New Moon" director) and David Slade ("Eclipse" director) is dramatic. Chris saw the first one and just thought that he wanted to follow along the road. David wanted to do it completely different from the first two. It all felt so fresh right from the first day. Edward's movement and such, from every single part of the performance, it just really shook it up a little bit.

Taylor Lautner: Well, Jacob gets a little more frustrated and a little heated in this one. It was very emotional for me. There are a lot of emotional scenes between Jacob and Bella (played by Kristen Stewart) and Jacob and Edward. He becomes very close to Bella, there's the much-talked-about kissing scene — but also all of the fighting scenes, so it was good ... it was much more dramatically challenging.

And what about that kissing scene with Kristen? I know that you're both very good friends. That has to be a little awkward.

TL: We are very close friends, but I wouldn't say it was awkward. After we finished a take of the kissing scene that was kind of steamy, there would be a moment of silence and then we'd look at each other and she'd go, "Ewww, we just kissed … weird." And then we had to do it again and again. After a while, it got kind of mechanical.

In the movie, your characters are both in love with Bella and in hot pursuit of her interests. She doesn't know which way to turn and even is at the core of the battle that breaks out in this film. In real life, could you be in a relationship that was so difficult to have?

RP: Oh, no way. I'm terrible at that. I can't even deal with people shouting at each other. The slightest bit of conflict and I'm gone immediately. It's one of the challenges of this movie for me. It's balancing the emotional aspects with the physical demands. Occasionally, there come moments where you have to portray a big story within a fight scene and it does become quite complicated.

Rob's Message To Fans at the Eclipse Premiere in London

NEW Rob Interview - Talks about BD, Playing a dad, Edward's virginity, Unbound Captives and more

LOS ANGELES—ROBERT PATTINSON usually arrives at our interviews with an easy, sly grin on his face. The smile reminds us that we’re in for another humor-filled talk with the guy.

What was different this time was his haircut—cropped on the side—which made him look younger.

In this chat, Robert talks about his anxiety over the coming end of the “Twilight” series, how he feels about the kissing scenes between Kristen Stewart’s Bella and Taylor Lautner’s Jacob, and a life-changing moment, among others.

Robert has come a long way from the first time we interviewed him on the London set of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” in which he played Cedric Diggory.

Below are excerpts:

What are you looking forward to about “Breaking Dawn” being shot back-to-back as two films and of Bill Condon directing them?
I’m glad that it’s Bill Condon. I love his stuff. I haven’t seen the script yet but I am fearful about the series’ end. It’s such a great security blanket. It’s like a net. You can afford to make mistakes when you have another “Twilight” film to make. After that, I guess you’re on your own.

I’m glad the “Breaking Dawn” films will be done together. Because otherwise, it’s quite hard to fit another film in-between each one. Like what happened in “Eclipse”—having to get your mind back to where it was before. I had about a week of preparation time. It was quite stressful in the beginning. With the two films done together, you can just stay in character the whole time.

In the tent scene which is already the much talked-about thing in “Eclipse,” your vampire character is of course cold, body temperature wise, while Taylor’s Jacob drives home the point that he’s literally hotter.
It’s sort of an odd scene. It’s quite difficult. It’s incredibly depressing for Edward (laughing). It does make him seem incredibly unattractive. But I never really got it in the first place. It’s like having some freezing cold person next to you (laughing). It’s horrible.

Taylor told us that you were always cracking up in that scene.
I was in a very strange room when we were shooting that scene (laughing). I kept getting obsessed with the idea of the word “thoughts” with an American accent. It sounds like “farts.” I couldn’t get over it the entire day. The opening line was, “Can you at least keep your thoughts to yourself?” I’m sitting in this tent and every single time, I laugh over that line. Taylor got to the point where he was like, “Those words don’t even sound the same. It’s not funny at all.”

I think I was tired. I find all this stuff where we have to boss each other all quite funny. Considering that we’re in teen-girl magazines and stuff … Taylor always has his shirt off. And I’ve got my little quaff (laughing). We’re trying to act all macho. I thought it was really funny.

Talk about the dynamics between the three of you now that Jacob gets to kiss Bella in this movie.
It’s weird. Not only do they do the kissing scenes—they never do it when I am even on the set. I have the day off. You genuinely feel like someone’s cheating on you. Then you come back to the set. And almost always, it’s after one of their scenes where I suspect them of doing something. It just so happened every single time—I would come into work being like, “So how was it?”

Can you set the record straight—your Edward character is a 100-year-plus-old virgin?
I think he’s … how old is he now? He must be 109 or 110. There’s an arguable point with another vampire in Alaska from the first book. It’s briefly mentioned. But I can’t remember if it’s actually fully explained if he is a virgin or not. I think the fans like to believe he is.
Since these “Twilight” films are fantasy/romance/thriller dramas, may I ask which love stories inspired you?
I have to sound really cheesy and say my parents. My parents met when my mom was 17 and my dad was 26. They’re still together. I grew up in an age where everybody gets divorced.
But in terms of film, I’ve always liked despairing, painful love stories. I think that’s probably because I’m still young. There’s a Godard film called “First Name: Carmen.” I’m not even going to attempt to say the French pronunciation. I always found that to be one of the most truthful and inspiring love stories I’ve seen on film.

How uncomfortable is it to be acting with contact lens on?
You can’t feel properly. You can’t sweat. If you do anything to sweat, everything starts breaking on your face. You can’t even psyche yourself up for a scene. I don’t know how people do scenes with contact lenses on. I just find it impossible. The Edward character is about restraint and restricting yourself about everything. He’s not a very effusive person. A lot of the performance should be done with your eyes but then you eliminate that ability by putting the contacts on. Whenever I do other movies in which I don’t have to wear contacts, I breathe a sigh of relief.

In “Breaking Dawn,” you become a father and Bella becomes a vampire bride. Do you have tips for Kristen on playing a vampire? Do you feel that you’re mature enough to play a dad?
It’s funny because I’m playing a dad in some scenes in “Breaking Dawn” and I’m portraying one in a movie I’m doing now as well. I’m terrified about doing it. I don’t know what I’m going to do when it comes to those scenes. I’ve been complaining so much about having the makeup on and contact lenses. Kristen is like, “You’re so pathetic. You have to just get over it. Why can’t you just get used to it?” [Now, since Kristen has to wear contact lens, too], I can finally be like, “You will know what it’s like. You’re going to be in constant aggravation the whole time.” Which is great.

We don’t see a lot of guys like Edward who protects a girl’s virtue. Do you relate to him at all? How old-fashioned are you?
I think I’ve become more old-fashioned. I feel like I’m already turning middle-aged now (laughing). It’s quite nice to be doing a series of films that a lot of people think uphold positive virtues. Some people actually think the films are a good influence on their kids.

Stephenie Meyer was on the set of “Eclipse” more often than she was on the first two movies. What was that like?
It’s not intimidating. She’s really nice. She really likes the films. It was strange, though. I didn’t really notice until toward the end of the filming. I was like, “Stephenie has been here every day” (laughing). It was interesting. She’s always open. She would never really come in and push anything on us. She was open to answering questions.

You have a western genre film project, “Unbound Captives,” in development. Why are you fascinated with westerns?
I grew up watching westerns. My dad’s favorite movies are all westerns. I hope that film happens. It’s such a complicated film to get together because it’s not really an action film or anything. It’s a slightly depressing romantic drama, half of which is in Comanche. It will definitely be different. My character is a massive stretch for me.

You play the guitar. How important is music for you?
It’s really important. Incidentally, my sister is a singer and a songwriter. Acting has helped as well because I’ve never really had any particular interest. The only reason I’d start releasing records is hopefully so I get a name in music and have good people who would want to collaborate with me. I guess having a name in acting, you can get your foot through the door with quite a few musicians. I hope I’ll be able to record some stuff just for myself. The idea of selling it—as soon as you start making it—it dies in a lot of ways. It’s too scary at that point. Then everyone feels the need to judge it. But if you’re not making money and you’re doing it for yourself, then no one’s going to judge it.

“Twilight” is very popular with young people, including Jaden Smith. What kind of books and music did you like when you were a teenager?
I was obsessed with a writer called Martin Amis when I was a teenager. I read everything. Every single time I went to a bookshop, I’d see if he has other books. I used to buy multiple editions of his books.
Martin, Van Morrison and Jimi Hendrix—they were my people when I was growing up. I’d obsessively collect all their stuff.
That’s funny about how Jaden likes the “Twilight” thing. He’s like the first guy who’s willing to admit it (laughing).

What has so far been a life-changing experience for you?
My moving to secondary school. I was kicked out of my first school. There is a whole system of the schools in London where I went from one school to another and then to university. Everybody went to the same schools. But I got kicked out. I ended up going to an arts school which was probably the best thing that ever happened to me.

Why were you kicked out?
Secret (laughing).

Robert Pattinson Says Yes to Casting Betty White in Breaking Dawn

Betty White has hosted Saturday Night Live. She starred in one of this year's most popular Super Bowl commercials. She even got herself an MTV Movie Award nomination for her work feeling up Sandra Bullock in The Proposal. And now she's back on weekly television with TV Land's Hot in Cleveland.

So what's left for the Golden Girl to do? How about Twilight? Yup, we think director Bill Condon should cast the 88-year-old legend in Breaking Dawn.

Guess who likes our idea: Robert Pattinson!

Read on to find out what he and many of his vampire movie costars have to say about Betty in Breaking. And no, we haven't started a Facebook campaign…at least not yet.

R.Pattz didn't miss a beat when we asked him at the Eclipse premiere if he thinks White should be in BD. "Definitely," he said. "She can be the baby."

The baby he's referring to, of course, is Edward and Bella's daughter, Renesmee.

He's not the only one who thought of that. "Oh, my gosh," Kellan Lutz said. "I love Betty. I would love for them to do what they did in Benjamin Button with her and she can be Renesmee. I would change some scenes up so we could have Jacob and Emmet going for her. I want to work with her. That would be so much fun."

Elizabeth Reaser agrees. "Is there a part for her?" she asked. "I'd love for her to be in Breaking Dawn. We could all learn a lot from her."

Twilight newbie Julia Jones, who plays Leah Clearwater in Eclipse, suggested White play Bella's "great-great-grandmother in a flashback scene."

Stephenie Meyer immediately had visions of White as bloodsucker. "We have so many vampires in Breaking Dawn, surely she can fit in somewhere," Meyer said. "Wouldn't it be amazing if she was like just sitting there with a big group of the Volturi? That would be amazing."

Peter Facinelli had much bigger plans. "I think Betty White should be in…everything!" he said. "I'd put her in Breaking Dawn and then I'd like to see Betty White do an action movie in 3-D. She should be in the next Avatar."

Rob: "There’s a lot of kissing and snuggling and hugging"

THERE'S only one film to sink your teeth into this summer – the fangtastic Twilight sequel eclipse.

And it’s set to be bigger and better than the previous bloodsucker blockbusters as heroes Edward and Bella are faced with more action danger and romance than ever before.

Industry insiders are predicting Eclipse will put the previous epics Twilight and New Moon into the shade as Britain goes vampire-crazy for the latest instalment, which has its UK premiere tonight.

This time, vamp-loving Bella has got just two things on her mind – being made into a bloodsucker herself and getting undead boyfriend Edward into bed.

But he refuses to jump between the sheets with her as he doesn’t believe in sex before marriage.

Eventually he promises to give into her desires, after she finishes school – and as long as she marries him before they get frisky and he makes her immortal.

Heart-throb Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward, reckons their chaste relationship keeps fans on the edge of their seats.

“If they just randomly had sex it would ruin the whole series,” the Brit actor says with a laugh. “It’s that moment of anticipation – whether it’s at the point of not knowing if someone likes you, or whether they like you enough to go into this.

“It’s the fear as well, especially if neither party has had sex before. I guess the fear kind of multiplies the desire and we’ve stretched that out. I think that’s why it has so many fans.”

For those who have missed out on the Twilight phenomenon, it revolves around Bella’s turbulent relationship with Edward, not helped by best friend and werewolf Jacob Black also being in love with her.

To make matters worse, werewolves and vampires are sworn enemies.

In Eclipse, Edward and Jacob battle it out for Bella’s affections. But their rivalry isn’t the only problem. An army of bloodthirsty newborn vamps led by the evil Victoria from the first film are terrorising the area.

Flame-haired Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard, 29) is desperate for revenge after her lover was killed by Edward and is determined to kill Bella, leading to the franchise’s most exciting battle scene yet.

For both Kristen and Rob, nick-named R-Pattz by his legion of adoring girl fans, this was their most challenging film of the series yet.

Rob, 24, says: “Action for action’s sake is kind of boring. But this has a massive battle scene with the newborn vamps.

“There’s a lot of kissing and snuggling and hugging and then there’s the huge battle. It’s definitely something different.

“In the first two movies Edward has one problem – whether to be with this girl. He has one decision to make and it’s answered in New Moon. And now he has to connect to the real world, which opens a massive amount of emotion.

“That is much more fun to play, more complex. He’s coming out of his shell, so hopefully by the end he’ll be a normal 17-year-old guy who’s just a little pale.”

Kristen adds: “I think Edward’s a great guy, but what I think is really special about the story is how they feel about each other.

“They are undeniably drawn to one other by an animal instinct, but at the same time they are perfect for each other in a  human way as well.”

But American beauty Kristen, 20, admits she was left red-faced by the scene where she tries to seduce Edward – even though the pair are an item in real life.

“It was horrible,” she reveals. “You have no idea! It was really embarrassing because it’s not normal for a girl to be in that  position.

His traditional values are quite sweet but they are just not hers and it was pretty embarrassing to be treated like such an animal.”

The rivalry between Edward and Jacob (hunky Taylor Lautner, 18) also hots up in Eclipse as Bella decides who she loves the most.

“For some reason, I find it quite funny when I’m doing stuff with Taylor,” says Rob.

“There are a couple of confrontational scenes where I push him around a little bit. I thought I’d really scare him and grab him and it would freak him out and turn the scene upside down.

“Then I grabbed his shoulder and it was actually too big to get a grip on so I just dropped my hand. It was embarrassing.

“I got him back though. He kept having to dress up in a little grey Spandex wolf suit and try to be intimidating with Kristen patting him on the head. That was funny.

“Seriously, though, it was good because I never do anything with anyone except for Kristen and this was about letting Edward have petty emotions like being jealous of Jacob and not being able to control himself because he gets under his skin so much.

“It becomes much easier to play much bigger scopes of emotion once you let someone else get through your armour.”

Bella kisses Jacob in one sizzling scene and realises she’s in love with him, but just not as much as with Edward.

And giggling Kristen admits it was her favourite scene. “On set that day people were walking around calling me a floozy,” she says with a giggle.

“I went: ‘Geez, what’s wrong?’ I like it because it’s so different and it shocks the hell out of her and completely changes the dynamic she has with her boyfriend.

“It was awkward to shoot because I know Taylor so well and we are such good friends, but it was only awkward before and after. In the middle of it, it did feel the way it should have felt.”

Notoriously tight-lipped about their personal lives, both Rob and Kristen clam up when asked about their relationship.

But Rob admits he understands why their army of fans – known as Twihards – are so obsessed with them being together.

He says: “I guess people like stories. My basic conclusion is that they just want everything to be about Twilight.”

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is out on July 9.
