Robert Pattinson Thought 'Twilight' Was A Strange Story

Robert Pattinson is opening up about his very first thoughts about the project that made him a household name, Twilight.

During a chat with Jennifer Lopez as part of Variety‘s actors on actors series, the -year-old actor revealed how strange he actually thought Twilight was.

“I mean with Twilight, it wasn’t really an established thing. To me, Catherine Hardwicke, who directed it, had done ‘Thirteen’ and ‘Lords of Dogtown.’ They were little movies, and they were kind of hardcore. Kristen [Stewart] was in stuff as well; she’d been in Into the Wild and some other things. And it was very indie [...],” he shared, talking about how the movie did start out as an indie movie.

Robert adds that “it’s a weird story, Twilight. It’s strange how people responded. I guess the books, they are very romantic, but at the same time, it’s not like The Notebook romantic. Twilight is about this guy who finds the one girl he wants to be with, and also wants to eat her. Well, not eat — drink her blood or whatever. I thought it was a strange story. Even the way I promoted it, I was very open about how strange I thought it was when I was doing it.”

“Then afterward, I didn’t make a conscious decision at all to do smaller things. I’ve just kept doing what I wanted to do in the first place.”
