Click here to see the #4 MTV moment.


via MTV It was early April 2008, and "Twilight" hadn't yet become a global box-office phenomenon and set off an epidemic of pop-culture copycats seeking to suck up some of the franchise's supernatural lifeblood. Back then, when Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were just two up-and-coming actors making a movie for an independent studio, MTV News traveled to the film's Portland, Oregon, set to find out just what was happening with this gothic-tinged love story everyone seemed to be buzzing about.


The duo were alternately shy and unguarded, jokey and awkward, and generally far different than they are these days, with the press invading every aspect of their personal and professional lives. That's why, even years later, our first-ever "Twilight" interview remains one of our favorite RPattz moments. And as we count down the days until "MTV First: Robert Pattinson" airs next Friday at 8:56 p.m. ET, we hauled the footage from our vaults.


"Kristen's the best actress of her generation, and that's why I wanted to do this movie. I don't know why she is, but she's better than everyone else," Pattinson told us, breaking out into laughter as he kept the attention on his co-star and away from himself.


"You don't want me to talk about you?" Stewart asked, before doing just that. "I think he's really handsome."


Throughout the interview, they exchanged knowing glances, laughed at themselves and each other, and paused for long periods as they searched for the right word or anecdote. This was the "Twilight" stars, pre-media training, and it's utterly endearing. Can you imagine them now so openly discussing what it's like to smooch on camera?


"His teeth are pretty sharp," Stewart laughed. "It's great. I like it."


"Every time, I just try to kill her," Pattinson added.


"And [Bella] likes it," Stewart said. "She's a total sadomasochist, if you think about it."




Hosted by MTV News' Josh Horowitz, "MTV First: Robert Pattinson" airs next Friday at 8:56 p.m. ET on MTV and Fans can tune in to see RPattz introduce the new Water for Elephants clip, followed immediately by a live 30-minute interview with Josh on, during which the "Twilight" heartthrob will answer a few questions from fans.


Fans can begin submitting their pressing queries on Friday (March 11) on or via Twitter (using @/ hashtag #AskRob).
