Yahoo! Movie Talk: Robert Pattinson Not a ‘Twihard,’ Saw ‘Twilight’ for The First Time ‘A Few Days Ago’

Nothing super new in this article, but imagine my surprise when I went to go open my email & see Rob’s face & this article on the front page =):

With the third installment in the Twilight series hitting theaters June 30, those still unfamiliar with the phenomenon might be finally getting caught up on what they’ve been missing. While “Twihards” (diehard fans of the vampire series) may find it surprising that anyone could miss out on their beloved saga, they’ll probably be even more surprised to find out who is among the uninitiated: Edward Cullen himself.

Yep, “Twilight” antihero, Robert Pattinson has admitted that, until quite recently, he was among the few who’ve managed to avoid seeing the movie that made him famous.

“I just saw ‘Twilight’ on TV for the first time a few days ago,” Pattinson revealed during a press conference for ‘Eclipse’ this past weekend. Although he had seen bits and pieces of the film while doing the DVD commentary, he said had never actually sat through the whole thing.

What were his impressions of the $408 million blockbuster he starred in two years ago? “Now that I’ve seen it, [I realize] you do need to read the book to get it,” Pattinson said while laughing. “I was like, ‘What?!’ and I’m in it.”

Pattinson also confessed that he freaked out a bit upon hearing his own song in the first ‘Twilight’ movie. “I was thinking, ‘That is so bizarre,’” he told reporters when asked whether he would pen any more Twilight ditties. “It really shows how none of us thought it was going to be so massive. I never thought people would buy the soundtrack or anything, so it’s a little more nerve-wracking now.”

What next on the agenda for R-Pattz? Reading “Breaking Dawn,” for one. Back-to-back filming for the final two movies begins this fall and so far Pattinson only has a vague idea of what happens in the final book. A spoiler for Pattinson and other non-Twihards: it’s the one where Bella (Kristen Stewart) gives birth to Edward’s child in a bizarre sequence.

“I didn’t intend to not read it until now,” Pattinson said with a laugh. “I just heard brief rumors about what happens in the story, but I don’t really know what happens at all.”

As for “Eclipse,” Pattinson says the third movie stands on its own more easily than the past two did and appeals to a broader crowd.

“I guess in terms of the violence and stuff…. that makes it a bit more grown-up,” he said during a separate panel. “Also I think it’s just a more accessible storyline. The sort of love triangle thing — being torn between two lovers doesn’t really happen when you’re eight. So yeah, I guess it’s a bit more grown-up in that respect.”

Also somewhat more mature in this installment: the liplocking between the two main “Twilight” characters (a practice for which Pattinson and his co-star, Kristen Stewart, just won an MTV Movie Award.)

“It was kind of the ultimate movie kiss,” the 24-year-old heartthrob said at an “Eclipse” press junket. “We were on top of this mountain. There was a beautiful background. The camera is circling around us. And there we are kissing. It was good — I’m glad Jacob had the opportunity to get his kiss in there.”
