Robert Pattinson Worried About Twilight's Effect on Economy

Robert Pattinson is VERY “worried” about the Twilight franchise ending not because it would signify the end of his superstar status, but because he thinks the US economy needs Twilight.

When asked on “Entertainment Tonight” how he feels about the Twilight saga ending, he said, “it’s slightly worrying. It’s a fragile economy at the moment.”

The room erupts in polite laughter. Oh Robert and your droll British wit. But he makes a good point, Twilight films do a good job in spiking the economy.

I should also point out that Rob, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are doing interviews TOGETHER again. The gang reunited yesterday for the first time since the dun, dun, dun cheating scandal!

They’ve already done an MTV interview and will be doing tons more joint press ops in the coming days.

Kristen weighed in on the sex scenes in the upcoming film, because of course, that’s literally the only thing people care about when they think of Twilight.

Don’t you guys care about the intricate story lines or the relationship between the vampires and the werewolves! No? Just me then? Ok, here’s your damn “sex scene” quote.

“You’re supposed to have this mind-blowing, inhuman experience. How do you do that?” says Kristen.

That’s it? That’s all she’s going to say? Le sigh.

Rob says that making the first film was so much better because there was less pressure on them, nobody knew what a big deal Twilight was going to become. 

“I felt a lot more free in the first [‘Twilight’ film], it felt quite dangerous. This one, you know your face is still going to be [on the poster], but you have a lot less control than in the beginning, so it’s kind of scary,” says Robert.

So what advice would he give his younger self at the start of the Twilight saga?

“Start drinking vodka instead of beer and try to get a six pack abs as early as possible, you’ll be a much more successful actor,” Rob revealed in a press conference yesterday.
