Kristen Stewart talks about Rob Part Deux

Kristen gave an interview to the Australian magazine AdelaideNow. You can read the whole thing HERE, the parts about Rob are below. Thanks to Jan for sending us the link.

Skipped first part....

The man of whom she is speaking is co-star Robert Pattinson, a Brit whose striking good looks and portrayal of undead heart-throb Edward Cullen have earned him the adulation, and hysteria, of teenage girls around the world.

The hysteria became frighteningly apparent to Stewart during promotional appearances ahead of the film's release, with thousands of teenage fans turning out to meet, well, mainly Pattinson.

"Some are rabid and just look at me with disdain," she says.

"I remember we did a signing at a bookstore and, after being there a couple of hours, we had to leave, but there was still this wall of people waiting to get Rob's autograph.

"I saw people looking at Rob and the prospect of not getting to meet him after waiting for so long, they just wanted to die. It was scary. I thought: 'If we leave, there is going to be a riot'."

Stewart first met Pattinson at director Catherine Hardwicke's Los Angeles home to see if they had on-screen chemistry and was immediately hooked on her leading man.

"He's a good actor and has a really insane work ethic. He is really sensitive. He's perfect. He's my perfect Edward."

Not surprisingly, reports hinted at an on-set romance between Pattinson, 22, and Stewart, then 17, during the shoot in the Oregon wilds. Their off-screen chemistry was enough to concern Hardwicke, who revealed she was worried the duo's obvious closeness would mean the end of Stewart's relationship with her boyfriend of five years, actor Mike Angarano.

Angarano is a close friend of Hardwicke's since she directed him in 2005's Lords of Dogtown.

Stewart takes a breath and looks at the floor when told of Hardwicke's comment.

"We were fine. I have not left my boyfriend for Robert Pattinson," she says quietly.

"But we went through a lot together. It is crazy to go through something that heavy in real life. At the end of it you are inevitably going to have something.

"I know a version of him better than anybody else in the world because I did this movie with him."

And they will do more. Both have signed contracts to appear in at least two Twilight sequels.

While stardom does not excite Stewart, the idea of being in a film franchise does.

"I would love to follow the character for that long. It would be an experience that I've never had before. I'm low-profile and I know everybody's like 'well, wait until the movie comes out', but it (fame) still doesn't really matter.

"You pull that to you. If you want that, you will get it. But if you don't want it, you will repel it at least a little bit.

"Sure, Twilight is really huge right now and everybody's freaking out over it, but it will go away soon and I will be back to doing what I'm used to doing - which is weird little movies that nobody sees."

For now, Stewart is looking forward to working unhindered by child actor laws, which limited the amount of time she was on set, meaning her co-stars on Twilight often had to do their scenes without her there.

"I will do better work now because of it," she says. "They're doing it to protect you, but you feel as if you are being deprived of something. I was 17 and I hated it."

Oh funny, I just posted this interview in the last thread's comment section, but you guys are on the ball as per usual.

LOVE that photo of Rob and KStew - they both look gorgeous in it!

I love when Kristen talks about Rob. She really says wonderful things about him :) And you can tell they are pretty close with one another.

Dani said...

Thanks Goz, I was coming back from lunch to post the New Moon and K Stew business and you are all over it.

I love K Stew even more. She is really quite the lady, insightful and very sweet about Rob. Just a doll this one. And although she releases her inner K Bitch from time to time, I forgive always.

Tess said...

Kstew is extremely mature... You can read a lot in between the lines in her comments.

I agree with you Dani. She does snap occasionally, but that's because she loses patients with people over what she terms as a 'not well thought out comment or statement'. She's quick to judge people who don't think things through (this is my only criticism)

I'm wondering what will happen for her in her private life in the future. hmmm

They're such a nice pair (Rob and Kristen). Rob will remain a constant shadow in Kristen and Michael's relationship. There's the whole of next year on set, together, most of the time...hmmm...

Hahas. Kristen said "I have not left my boyfriend for Robert" Shouldn't she say something like... "I Won't leave my boyfriend for Robert" To make it a 100% that she doesn't love Rob? So since she DIDN'T say that. Maybe.. just maybe.. deep inside her,she has fallen for Rob but does not know it yet? Interesting :D
