Vale at Twilight Poison translated an interview Rob did with Glamour Spain. I am posting some parts here.
Does Twilight remind you of your real life and high school, when two people are attracted to each other with such energy?
Yes, although I had really bad luck with girls, the ones I liked hated me and the ones that liked me were not my type. But that’s something that I still go through, I like girls that I shouldn’t like. But I’m learning and now I take my time before I let the girl know. (Gozde: I think you took enough time Rob. See the contact us box on the right? Get on it:))
How are you handling being the new It Boy, being in so many covers of magazines now all over the world?
I don’t mind, my character is so good and he deserves to be admired. From the moment I signed up for this I knew what I was getting myself into. Edward is a vampire, he’s not a hero like Superman, he’s a vampire in love who wants to be normal. (Gozde: So it was one of THOSE days for Rob when he was doing this interview :) He says he doesn't mind being on so many covers. Himm, I am SURE I heard a different answer for that before :))
It took him 90 years for him to find love. Do you believe in love at first sight?
That’s so boring! I think we all have the right to fall in love several times. The conventional idea of love, the idea of being with somebody for the rest of your life and love her forever sounds so silly to me, and so unrealistic. I think you can love ten people at the same time (laughs).(Gozde: Uhoh! Refer to :
What would you be capable of doing for love?
I don’t know, climb a mountain? (Gozde: Hahahaha! I love his answer to the pointless question:)
Would it scare you to fall in love like the characters in Twilight?
Yes, because it’s an obsessive love, a sick love. When you fall in love and you lose yourself like that. Imagine falling in love like that!
Do you get hit on by difficult women?
I’m crazy about independent women who don’t require too much attention.
Have you ever used the phrase “I’m an actor” as a pick up line?
Not, that phrase doesn’t wok here in LA - everybody is an actor here.
Are you planning on going to college?
Yes, but I’m planning on taking it slowly, probably when I’m 28. As an actor you have to take advantage of the opportunities you get and not letting them pass by.
How did you feel at 17?
I felt increadibly awkward all the time. I’ve always been a very edgy person, especially in those years that I didn’t find my place, everything scared me. I just started reading again my journals from when I was 17….
Do you talk about love in them?
Actually, no. I’ve only been attracted to two women in my whole life. (Gozde: Why do I think this is one of THOSE answers? :))
Do you remember the first time you loved someone?
Yes. It’s weird to enjoy your first love, especially if the relationship lasts a long time. Our relationship was really beautiful, but we didn’t have an obsessive love like in the movie. Her presence in my life made me very happy for three years. Now it’s kind of hard to talk about it. (Gozde: Oh wow...)
