Robert Pattinson, on location in Budapest for a new film, is never one to mince words. A complex guy, who likes to dive into any role he plays, is a true method actor. Vampire-playing Robert Pattinson admits he sometimes slips into character when he’s out with the ladies. What about other movie stars, who does he admire most?
He says, “I aspire to be Jack Nicholson. I love his every single mannerism. I used to try and be him in virtually everything I did, I don`t know why. I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo`s Nest when I was about 13, and I dressed like him. I tried to do his accent. I did everything like him. I think it kind of stuck with me.”
On his character Edward Cullen, he was the guy R-Patz loved to hate. He was once quoted as saying, “When I read the Twilight series, it’s like saying “Edward Cullen is so beautiful I creamed myself.” I mean every line is like that. He’s the most ridiculous person who’s so amazing at everything. I think a lot of actors tried to play that aspect. I just couldn’t do it. And the more I read the script, the more I hated the guy, so that’s how I played him, as a manic-depressive who hates himself. Plus, he’s a 108 year-old virgin, so there’s clearly some issues there.”
Rob, a Taurus, may have mixed feelings about his role as Edward because he’s so similar to his own personality. A deeply sensitive guy, who would do anything for the love of Bella (Kristin Stewart). How life imitated art, where the star crossed lovers onscreen found love offscreen.
