LA Times has a new interview with Taylor. Here are the parts with Rob. You can find the rest HERE
Excellent. So clearly, you’re ready to deal with the rabid “Twilight” fans for a while longer. You know, at Comic-Con you did seem the most at ease with the screams. Were you nervous at all?
We were all standing backstage waiting to go out and they told me ‘It’s going to be crazy. Once you get downstairs there’s going to be 6,500 fans.’ I kind of brushed it off and said ‘Yeah, OK, sure.’ But then “Twilight” came up on the screen, and everyone just started screaming. I’ve never seen anything like it before. We were all pretty nervous but once we got out there it was pretty fun –- at least for me. The fans are just very passionate and really excited for the movie to come out already. So am I!
I thought Robert, in particular, looked like he was going to pass out from fear. Did you give him any words of advice in dealing with fans?
(Laughs) Actually, both he and Kristen have come up to me and asked, ‘How do you not freak out? What do you do?’ And they’re all sweating (laughs again). I tell them, ‘I don’t know. I mean, this is fun!’ But they’re all disappointed, like ‘Oh, OK.’ They’re funny.
he “Twilight” boys seem to be getting most of the attention so far in the media. Can you tell us more about what Kristen is like?
The only people that were there when I was on set were Kristen and Rob, and he wasn’t there too much. So it was basically just me and Kristen. She’s very easygoing. It takes her a little bit to warm up to people. She’s a little shy and reserved. Her and Rob both are. But she was very fun to be around.
Did you guys hang out while you were filming?
Yeah. Portland has the best food I’ve ever had. It was amazing. We’d finish at 5:30 p.m. and just go out to eat the best steak, or there were all kinds of crawfish restaurants. It was so delicious. Food took up a lot of the down time.
