The 22-year-old British actor, who says he reads gossip blogs regularly, reveals to the mag about his Twilight audition, Camilla Belle and getting his next job. Check out what he had to say:
On future acting jobs: “Iâ€™m not massively concerned about doing lots of acting jobs. If it all just went, right now, Iâ€™d be like, â€˜All right. I donâ€™t really care.â€™ Thatâ€™s probably a stupid thing to say. But I donâ€™t, really. I think itâ€™d be much worse to do a load of stuff thatâ€™s really bad. Because then you canâ€™t go into another career. If youâ€™ve made an idiot out of yourself, youâ€™re never going to be taken seriously, as a lawyer or something, if youâ€™re, like, a joke actor. The only thing I want from anything is to not be embarrassed.”
On good friend, Camilla Belle: “Thatâ€™s the extent of it [our relationship; friends]. I mean, Camillaâ€™s the nicestâ€”sheâ€™s a saint. And itâ€™s funny that sheâ€™s being portrayed as this home wrecker. Sheâ€™s literally the most unlikely person to be a home wrecker. Itâ€™s just ridiculous. I donâ€™t see people. I donâ€™t even have peopleâ€™s phone numbers. I almost donâ€™t want to have a girlfriend, in this environment.”
On his audition for Edward Cullen: “I took half a Valium and then went into this thingâ€”and all this stuff happened. It was the first time Iâ€™ve ever taken Valium, a quarter. A quarter of a Valium. I tried to do it for another audition, and it just completely backfiredâ€”I was passing out. If you met a guy like that [Edward] in real life, youâ€™d think he was kind of dorky.”
