Try to suppose, to assume Twilight without Robert Pattinson.
Playing the vampire Edward Cullen made Pattinson a household name, but as he recalled in an interview with The unusual York Times over the weekend, he was nearly fired while making the first film, released in 2008. His agents intervened, flying to the Canadian set to still him down. “I didn’t fill to kiss anybody’s [butt] the entire time,” he recalled. “I don’t reflect I did, besides.”
(The film star told Yahoo! Movies in 2012 that he took his method acting to so seriously that he “was fighting with everybody in control sum the time…to the point where I nearly got fired.”)
In hindsight, Pattinson said, shooting the five Twilight films was “an incredible luxury.” It was “incredible luck, as well, to just fill fallen into it with the group of people I worked with on it.” And whether he’s forever associated with Edward Cullen, so be it. “I reflect one of the best things, basically, approximately being a bit of a sellout, is whether you’ve done five movies in a series, you’ve had to accept some responsibility for playing the same character,” Pattison, 31, told the newspaper.
The actor is particularly proud of 2012’s Cosmopolis, the first film he made after Twilight ended. “I reflect it was the first time when I worked on something that was fairly complex,” Pattinson said. “I particularly cherish the fact that it came out really at the height of my popularity.” It was “the ample turning point for me,” he added. “I just realized that was what I wanted to attain.”
Pattinson was a fan of director-producer-writer David Cronenberg‘s style, which was unlike that of anyone else he had ever worked with before. “I reflect it’s so rare for something to demolish a sample,” he explained. “I feel like nearly everything in the world is designed to be predictable.”
The first-rate Time actor, whose next projects include High Life and The Souvenir, is at his best when he’s operating external of his consolation zone. Just don’t request him to watch his work, as it makes him very self-conscious. “I’ve never seen anyone give themselves such a tough time. I’m beating myself up afterward. And I reflect there’s some weird perverted energy that comes out of when people criticize preceding work or reflect you represent this certain thing; it gives you this energy,” Pattinson said, joking that he’s “nearly terrified of anyone saying anything I attain is first-rate.”
