James Mottram of The Independent has one of the best interviews with New Moon star Robert Pattinson that I have read yet. In it, he covers much of what he’s been up to over the last few months, including Little Ashes, his love life, fame, fans and general craziness. Check out this small portion–
According to Pattinson, he sees playing Dali as a turning point in his career. “To not betray or insult someone’s memory, it seemed a lot more important than other jobs I’ve done before,” he says. “I definitely felt I had a lot of freedom when I was doing for various reasons.” Still, how does he think the Twilight fans will react to his love scenes with Beltran? “I think girls” – at this point he can’t stop himself from a smutty chortle – “almost really like watching something like that. From what I’ve read, people really get excited about that – it sounds really sexy!”(Gozde: He SO reads internet fan pages and comments!)
Inevitably, since Twilight came out, speculation has surrounded Pattinson’s own love-life, linking him with numerous starlets, including 10,000 BC’s Camilla Belle. “I don’t really care about it,” he shrugs. “I have the same little set of friends and I don’t have anyone who would really get affected adversely [by false rumours]. Every single person who they sort of romantically link me to… I just don’t even really know anyone. So it doesn’t really affect me that much.” Is there any truth to the persistent rumour hooking him up with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart? “Er, no,” he states. “I don’t understand where that even comes from.”
Hmm…Smutty Chortle could be the new Spunk Ransom….
