Robert Pattinson isn’t romantic? Gasp!
On seeing Taylor for the first time after the muscle gain: “I didn’t see Taylor until just a little bit before we started shooting. I had the same reaction as everybody else. It’s like, ‘Jeez, now I have to go to the gym.’ Looking at Taylor’s martial arts videos from when he was nine, I wouldn’t really want to fight him for real unless maybe I had some kind of weapon. But in the story as it’s written, I think it’s actually a fact that Edward would win over Jacob. So I guess I can hold onto that for my ego.”
On not finding himself romantic: “I can’t think of a single romantic thing I’ve ever done. That’s terrible. Wait. I put a flower in someone’s locker when I was 15-years-old. It was a girl named Maria. She thought it was somebody else that had done it and the other guy was trying to take credit.”
On what he has in common with Edward Cullen: “I guess stubbornness in some ways about some things. Edward is pretty self-righteous, and I guess I am too. I get quite obsessive about things and possessive as well. I have very specific ideas about how I want to do my work and how I want to be perceived, to the point of ridiculousness sometimes. I don’t listen to anyone else. That’s why I don’t have a publicist. I can’t stand it if someone is trying to tell me to do something, even if it’s probably a mistake sometimes. I’m like a control freak about it. I’ve never really struggled with anything until recently. I’ve got to stop being so self-depreciating because people are starting to believe it. Like, ‘That guy is an idiot.”
