Robert Pattinson on Star Zoom (French Mag) Cover- New? Interview

I'm not sure how 'new' the interview is but there are some very cute quotable Rob moments in it.

Since there aren't any new pictures in the mag scans I'm just posting the translated interview.

We know you as a very shy person. Aren’t you too stressed out about the millions of fans who have eyes only for you?
Yes, but as everybody would, I think. Sometimes is embarrassing. But I’m aware that I’m playing some sort of ideal man. I try to take it to any opposite view, to break this image of the perfect man or to be more relaxed over the whole pressure. Edward is a very lonely person. At first he doesn’t want any relationship with Bella and doesn’t want to hurt her. This is more emphasized in the book that in the film.

Does all the madness around you make you afraid?
I especially fear the extreme behavior of some fans. Once, a mom made me hold her baby and pretend that I was going to bite her head, so she could be immortal too, like me. Not to mention dozens of girls who want me to bite her neck! People sometimes try to ambush me and try to figure out how long I’ll stay in a hotel, waiting for me in the halls, shouting as soon as I appear. Some fans just want to touch my hair, others want to kiss me. It’s very surreal.
Fortunately, most of the time, it’s not as scary. People project their ideas of the characters and think sometimes that we are them, when we’re not.

You play a character who is very handsome, but at the same time he’s scary. Is it hard to play that?
Yes, playing a vampire and keeping the power of attraction is very difficult. I tend to wrap my head too much around too many things. I’m a very stressful person. On my first movie, The Goblet of Fire, I was so sick I threw up all the time. All the time I was told: “Don’t do it like this! don’t do it like this!”. In New Moon, I’m a lot less stressed. Fortunately! I’m starting to get used to it.

Did you know about the books by Stephenie before being offered the role?
No. I just read he script, I didn’t know there were books. The only reason I went to audition was because I saw Into The Wild with Kristen and became a fan (laughs). I was a little embarrassed when I got the role. In the book, Edward is a mystery and he represents everything a perfect man should be. And I felt like a complete idiot auditioning for that. It’s rather cheeky when you think about it. But I don’t regret anything.

Oh yey! first comment. He's been in every magazine I can think of. I'm glad though that he is out and about. Hopefully, the drought will soon be over!

You know, I'm not generally a celebrity whore - I mean, hell, I don't even have a television! But this guy's story has sucked me in. Watching an intelligent, introspective, happy and humble guy go from complete (or mostly complete) anonymity to global fame in a year...there's definitely a can't-look-away train wreck feel at this point.

I mean, camping out in the hotel? Jesus. What a weird life.

EXTRA just showed Rob and Taylor in old interviews they tried to pass off as new.

It's bad enough in a magazine but on TV too????

Rob said something to the effect of how people used to say he "looked like a junkie and now they say oh, he's so good looking!" And he said he wanted to change his name and have a stage name but if he" did it now it'd look really lame".

He was smiling and laughing and looking so confident. I think it was the outside interview before Comic Con2008.

I bet he would not look or sound that way now - probably more reserved, say fewer words, make it short and get the hell outta there.

It's sad how fame can really have such a negative effect. Even though he is getting millions and millions of dollars - the money is not enough!!

Yeah, I'm wondering if Rob ever wonders if the money was worth the cost of constantly being hounded. I can't wait until BD is in the theaters. Maybe Rob's life will settle down a bit.
