Robert Pattinson – 'New Hollywood Award' Recipient and 'Edward Cullen' in Twilight
What can we expect from Twilight? Are we all going to be satisfied?
Robert Pattinson: "I really hope so. …I kind of knew that some people liked it at the beginning – not as much as I realize now. But I mean I kind of liked him as a character and I wasn't trying to play him as a fantasy figure. I was trying to play it as, you know, realistically as I could. So I mean hopefully that works."
What about the reshoots? What did you guys have to go back and do?
Robert Pattinson: "We did… They weren't all reshoots. We did some new scenes from, like period scenes. What else did I shoot? I reshot when I kiss Bella. Yeah, so I was like, 'All right.'"
How many of your songs are going to end up in the movie? Two?
Robert Pattinson: "Two songs, yeah. One of them is written by a friend of mine; one of them is written by me."
Was it one you wrote specifically for the movie?
Robert Pattinson: "No. It was completely… Catherine [Hardwicke] had a CD of my stuff and just put it in. I just thought it was kind of a joke. It's completely insane. It's like Radiohead and Linkin Park and all these people like that. How did that happen? Yeah, it's completely strange."
