The 18-year-old actor dished to the mag about his fight to keep the role of Jacob Black, how grateful he is for Kristen Stewart and getting jipped on promo trips around the world. Check it:
On his mindset with keeping the role of Jacob: “Iâ€™m in the gym and Iâ€™m doing reps, and Iâ€™m reading the books, and Iâ€™m studying the character. Iâ€™m just saying to myself, ‘I want this role. I love this role. Iâ€™m not gonna lose it. And Iâ€™m gonna know it better than anybody, and Iâ€™m gonna do that extra rep, because Iâ€™m gonna be Jacob Black.’”
On promo trips being somewhat of a let down: “Itâ€™s a tease, is what it is. You show up in Paris, and on the drive from the airport to the hotel youâ€™re like, ‘This is so cool! I want to see something! I want to go to the Eiffel Tower!’ And then you leave the next morning. You think, Oh, I didnâ€™t get to do anything. I tell people: Iâ€™ve been just about everywhere, but Iâ€™ve seen nothing.”
On his Oscar experience: “I would have passed out if she [Kristen] wasnâ€™t there! Youâ€™re looking down and youâ€™re talking to George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprioâ€”and theyâ€™re listening to you!”
The new issue hits stands on Tuesday, June 22nd.
