When you were cast and read the book did you think, “Well I’m really beautiful so I’ll be good at this?”
Pattinson: No, I mean that’s kind of why I was kind of tortured before the casting. I read the book and was like “Well this is really dumb I’ll never ever… this is so pointless going up for the role.” Which is what a lot of the fans said, after I was initially cast. They were like “He wasn’t even on the shortlist!” It is kind of weird. I’ve spent a long time thinking, “How can I take the whole beautiful thing as an interpretation?” And I realized that it’s just Bella saying he’s so beautiful and she’s just in love with him and obsessed with him so he could be like a piece of cheese and she would think the same thing.
Bwahaha, if I ever had any doubt about him playing Edward before, I don't know. This dude rocks.
