Rob:People ask me if I believe in exis­tence of Vam­pires, I actu­ally do not believe in the story.(Laugh)

Since I have been doing Edward, and every 6 months I come back to the set of Twi­light and the crew would ask me “How have you been? You look a year older than last time I saw you.” Maybe that is why I feel like I age faster than usual. I just had my 24th birth­day the other day, it seems like time flies so fast and I feel like I am 35 years old already.

Rob:Every time I fin­ish the shoot­ing and get away from the sequel, I for­get how much this char­ac­ter meant to me, it is really sad. It is fun to come back to the set and do Edward and real­ize that I am try­ing to enhance my act­ing skill.It is really chal­leng­ing to bring all the expe­ri­ences I have done into my act­ing skill. Things hap­pen and van­ish, like super­nova in a way. To be a well skilled actor, I would need another 10 years.

Rob:I have found really nice agent for myself; they are really close friends at the same time. The thing is, most of the Hol­ly­wood actors believe that the agents are the per­son who brings the new job, like “Oh, if you don’t fetch a good assign­ment, you are fired!”.

But I do not feel that way toward my agent. I think it is you that who seeks a new assign­ment for your­self. So, I keep a good friendly dis­tance with them and they know where I come from. Not that I do not wish to suc­cess, but we have the same devo­tion toward work. Most of the movies I have done recently are the scripts that I had read before the open­ing of “Twi­light”. Those are the scripts I read and I liked. There were some scripts that I thought it may not make it and all the sud­den it become real­ity. I think I like one of those indies pro­duc­tion bet­ter than the ones that you know who will be in and the date of the open­ing day already. Those are the one of the block­busters but to me those that only seeks for the mar­ket is not inter­est­ing enough to be casted. I pre­fer an actor like a Futures trad­ing dealer. It is much exciting.(laugh)

=Robert Pat­tin­son STORY=

Rob: Fame is like an imag­i­nary thing after all. If you are not tal­ented, you can’t use the power of the fame. If you are famous, that doesn’t mean that you have them all, or you get the enough wealth to live hap­pily ever after.

Gos­sips and Tabloids pick up every bit of the some­one who got famous in this instant, and they do not care of invad­ing one’s pri­vacy at all. That is one of the rea­son peo­ple lose their inter­ests in movies or the mys­te­ri­ous side of the actors.

Robert has started seek­ing his career after “Twi­light saga” sequel. He does not wish to van­ish his career in this hys­te­ria and mass media’s too much attention.

Rob: This hys­te­ria will soon over, like in a year or so; I try to ignore the crazy gos­sip. That is how I keep myself. I would like to do cou­ple of more small pro­duc­tions, but I have my ambi­tion to do a big­ger film in the future.

Rob: It was really tough to go through that peo­ple rec­og­nize me as an actor who does the pop­u­lar sequels. Most of the block­busters has recog­ni­tions of that sort, but at least Kristen and I are not doing “Twi­light” because of that.

He men­tions that he also under­stands that because of this “Twi­light” fame, peo­ple keep send­ing him all sorts of scripts and productions.

Rob: Because I did “Twi­light” and rec­og­nized, peo­ple send me many scripts to have my eye on, but I don’t think I am changed in the way I choose the script. I do not have a spe­cial fea­ture in myself, it is not too dif­fi­cult to find a script. I tend to pick the ones that I haven’t done of.

Rob: Before I became an actor, I thought I could not com­plete any­thing. But now, I think I started to climb up my moun­tain. It may take 10 more years to say that I have all the con­fi­dence in what I do. I feel great to be an actor; act­ing makes me feel like I still have a hope in my future.

Rob: One thing I have fear about is what kind of projects I will do and how the pub­lic will react for that. It looks silly even to me some­times, but that is my fear. That is why I don’t have pub­li­cist and I‘d like to choose what I will do by myself. It is a lot eas­ier to have some­one decide what you will do, but I do not want to blame some­one other than myself when things went wrong. I wish to be a pru­dent actor, but I also know that it is dif­fi­cult to con­trol your­self that much as an actor. So, I think being in “Twi­light” made a great progress in my act­ing carrier.
