The many actors from the hotly anticipated upcoming Twilight film were rounded up by Vanity Fair for their December issue. In addition to taking lots of photos, the magazine sat each of the movie's stars down for individual Q&A sessions. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have been attracting an especially large amount of attention lately as the lead characters — maybe because women can't resist a vampire tale? — and they both had lots to say about the process of working together. Here's more:
- Kristen on working with Robert: "Well, I basically cast him. We did one day of auditions and a bunch of guys came in. Catherine Hardwicke, the director, afterwards was like, 'What do you think? This is such a hard choice.' I was like, 'Are you kidding me!? It's such an obvious choice!' It couldn't have been better. It was sort of perfect."
- Robert on preparing for his role: "I basically spent two months thinking, 'O.K., how can I play this character like he is written and be absolutely nothing like him in real life? How can I get away from the most major aspect of his description — his appearance?' As it is written from Bella’s perspective, she describes him in this obsessively lustful way. She does not see a single flaw in him at all. It’s a very traditional aspect of first or young love. So, it took me ages to think of it, but it ended up being really simple: if you are in love with someone, you can’t see any flaw in the other person. So I finally figured out that I didn’t have to play the most beautiful man on the planet, but just play a man in love."
- Kristen on her trademark style: "I'm a really typical girl. I look like everyone."
- Robert on his trademark style: "Looking terrible. Truly, I wear the same thing every day. I don’t know how to use a washer machine."
While most people wouldn't agree with their impressions of themselves, Kristen and Robert both seem to be ready for the fan mania and to be catapulted even more into the spotlight when the movie opens next Friday on Nov. 21.
