Robert Pattinson: Nobody Will Care About Me Without Twilight

Well said sir. Without Twilight, Robert Pattinson is just some guy with his eyes spaced very far apart. With Twilight, Robert Pattinson is an international vampire hottie that travels with a pack of screaming fans.

Speaking to The Herald Scotland, Robert Pattinson isn’t obsessed with his own hype, and kind of blames Twilight for ruining his anonymity.

“Doing something like Twilight opens doors and it closes others. You can say, ‘Oh if I was still unknown, then no one would judge me,” says Pattinson, “But at the same time, nobody would give a sh-t either. It’s a weird little balance.”

Well, I don’t know about that…there’s a large amount of Harry Potter fans who would still remember Pattinson’s role as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter films, or as we like to say in the wizarding community, “the hot one.”

Now that Pattinson has finished filming all the Twilight flicks, he can move on to other projects and hopefully distance himself from that vampire role. Unfortunately for Pattinson he isn’t the greatest actor. Also, his “American” accent? What’s going on there? It’s like 85% American English, 5% lisp, and 10% mumbling.

His first film post Twilight is Bel Ami where he plays a womanizer and hooks up with three different women.

“There is something quite fun about going from Edward Cullen to playing a guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them,” says Pattinson.

So he plays a pimp, then?

“Edward so wouldn’t approve,” says Pattinson, speaking about his onscreen Twilight character, Edward, “So, yes, I thought that was a funny irony. But the story, independently, is great, and I only thought about the irony afterwards.”
