The tides are definitely turning for Robert Pattinson concerning Twilight.
This isn’t the first time the actor has shared his disdain for the paranormal franchise that elevated him to super stardom, but it is the most passive-aggressive, according to an interview he had with Germany’s Interview magazine. He left the last film's set without saying bye to the cast.
“The actual last day of filming had been in Canada…so that [last] night it was freezing cold and horrible,” Rob recounted. “The whole crew just wanted to go. Just like me. I didn’t say goodbye to all the guys but just took off.”
It’s the same sort of treatment he gives to the series’ legion of fans. The actor admitted that he had no idea how truly committed the fans were, until he joined the franchise.
“The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren't really teenagers. Most of them are older,” Rob noticed. “Twilight has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one. And in an intense way that has never existed before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight. Day and night. So actually really exciting—at least up to the point when I became part of that phenomenon."
As much as he loves how supportive people have been of the film adaptations, he admits that he’s had some strange, “really scary and creepy” fan interactions.
“Suddenly everywhere I went people thought they already knew me,” he said. “They look at a photo of me and think they have a special relationship, a friendship, an affair with me—someone they haven’t met their whole life. That’s crazy…but I try to laugh it off.”
