On being unable to stop talking during interviews: "During interviews I’m literally sh*ting my pants. I don’t want there to be a silence, because I’ll start crying.”
On scary obsessed fans: "There was a group of girls that left little notes in my car, outside of my apartment. One of the first notes said: I’m not weird, but please call me. The next day the note said: Please don’t ignore me. And the next day it said I’m going to kill myself if you keep ignoring me! (but I’m not weird, ok?)." - OK!
On working out in preparation to play 'perfect' Edward: "I used to go to the gym for about five hours a day, but then I started losing so such weight. My head started to look really huge in comparison to the rest of my body. (Catherine Hardwicke) came up to me and said, 'What are you doing to yourself?' (To gain weight) I literally stopped exercising. Eating a cheeseburger after two-and-a-half months of doing that - it tasted like ambrosia." - Entertainment Weekly
On receiving his invite to this year's Oscars: "When [the Academy] first told us about my [invitation to present an award], I was like, 'No, no, no. You're joking!' [I thought] I was going to have to do something really stupid, like get gunged [slimed]!"
On filming gay sex scenes for upcoming movie Little Ashes: "The hardest part was trying to do it doggie-style. Trying to have a nervous breakdown while doing it doggie-style. And it wasn't even a closed set. There were all these Spanish electricians giggling to themselves." - GQ
On the kind of attention he received from Twilight fans: "People ambush me in public and ask me to bite them and want to touch my hair.
On being attracted to 'mental' women: "The stuff I find attractive in women, I always regret finding attractive. I always like a kind of madness in a woman, and when they are really, really strong. And they're the worst - mental, strong women!" - Closer
On his cross-dressing past: "Up until I was 12 my sisters used to dress me up as a girl and introduce me as 'Claudia'! Twelve was a turning point as I moved to a mixed school and then I became cool and discovered hair gel."
On keeping his feet on the ground: "My mum still thinks I'm an idiot. I'd describe myself as laid-back and not vain."
On his appearance: "I never really considered myself attractive. I was always kind of gangly in school. Before I go out to face a crowd, I stare and stare at myself in the mirror until I have to tell myself to stop staring, since there’s nothing I can do."
On a failed attempt at being heartbroken as a teen: "I remember when I was a teenager thinking my girlfriend was cheating on me, and going around riling myself up. Pretending to cry. It was totally illegitimate - I actually didn’t feel anything. I went to some pub and then went crying all the way home. And I got into my dog’s bed. I was crying and holding on to the dog. I woke up in the morning, and the dog was looking at me like, ‘You’re a fake.’ I spent three days apologizing to the dog." - GQ
On his first crush: "I remember there was a girl I was totally obsessed with for about 10 years. I never ever spoke to her. I think that’s the best type of love. Then when I finally told her she was like, 'You’ve never spoken to me in my whole life. You’ve only spoken to me about three times and never said anything nice (laughter).'"
On Edward's unearthly appearance: "Sometimes I think I look like I've had facial reconstructive surgery, like after burns or something. My whole head is like I've had a face lift."
On the problems of filming Edward's kissing scene with Bella: "This is quite difficult 'cos I have a really flat head, and so it's quite difficult to get a correct angle...And you can't go up from down below as well, 'cos I've got, like, rock solid gelled hair. And so, like, it was odd. I don't know, sometimes I feel like my head is being, like, turned inside out. Like that episode of Ren & Stimpy when he's inside his own belly button."
On why washing his hair is pointless: "I don't really see the point in washing your hair. If you don't care if your hair's clean or not then why would you wash it? It's like, I don't clean my apartment ’cause I don't care. I have my apartment for sleeping in and I have my hair for just, you know, hanging out on my head. I don't care if it's clean or not." - Extra
