Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart sit down for their first television interview since cheating scandal!
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart somehow managed to survive her cheating incident earlier this summer. A big part of me still thinks their reconciliation is still a big publicity stunt, but I don’t think either of them are good enough actors to fake it. So unfortunately, I do think they’re back together. They were spotted together on Halloween, and have becoming more and more inseparable. That could have something to do with the fact that the fourth and final installment of ‘Twilight’ is about to be released.
Robert and Kristen sat down with Taylor Lautner for a chat on MTV News last night, promoting ‘Breaking Dawn: Part II’.
Kristen opened up about how it’s going to be hard saying goodbye to ‘Twilight’ and all the time they’ve spent together over the last several years.
‘For the last few press junkets, they’ve been separating everyone which is silly. I think because we love hanging out,’ she said.
The couple, who rarely discuss their relationship in public, seemed more than happy to talk about the Halloween party they attended together on Wednesday night.
‘Oh yes, it looks awesome,’ she said eyeing the photograph of herself in a pink bobbed wig and sunglasses. ‘That’s not fair. That’s actually a really weird [photo].’
But Pattinson was initially reluctant to admit he was the man behind the creepy clear mask with eyebrows painted on.
‘That’s not me,’ he exclaimed, laughing, admitting: ‘I chose someone who is just genuinely terrifying. It was a $3 mask from a 7-Eleven.’
Stewart’s choice was apparently an homage to one of her favourite movies Closer – a film about couples and infidelity, and Natalie Portman wears a pink wig in some scenes.
‘If you’ve seen that, that’s one aspect of [Portman's] character. She changes a lot in that movie, but that’s one part, yeah.’
Pattinson was his usual self-deprecating self in the interview, deflecting problematic questions with humour.
‘I’d imagine it’s quite like the scene where she’s doing the pottery in Ghost,’ he quipped, when quizzed about a sex scene in the film.
The cast also recalled the audition process for the first Twilight film, with Stewart having had a say in who director Catherine Hardwicke cast as Edward and Taylor’s character Jacob Black.
‘I take full credit for both of these guys actually,’ she said sarcastically when asked if she was partially responsible for their success.
‘I’m going to take credit for Kristen’s,’ chipped in Pattinson, who recalled he was ‘crippled by nervousness’ during his initial audition for the part which also involved having to take his shirt off.
‘I said to Catherine “if this is what we’re being judged on, I haven’t got the job.’
Later on in the chat, the notoriously press-shy Stewart was mortified when footage was played of her conducting an interview at the MTV Awards back in 2008 – and even got up from her chair and started pacing in embarrassment
‘Why? Why?’ she said, adding sarcastically. ‘That’s a photo album, favourite thing for me.’
‘People had no idea who were were,’ added Pattinson. ‘I did three interviews that day saying I was in Narnia.’
The stars were also asked about their memories from the franchise, with Pattinson recalling that fans of the Stephenie Meyer penned books were not exactly thrilled about his casting at first.
‘Unanimous unhappiness, he remembered. ‘I think it’s come full circle and they hate me again.’
Clearly, the rest is history, with the trio reminded that the franchise had bagged 16 MTV Awards – more than any other – including best kiss between Bella and Edward.
I am really relieved that the ‘Twilight’ saga is about to end. Really, the only good movie was the first one, and ever since then they have been huge disappointments. I’m hoping that the fourth film will be decent, but I’m not holding my breath.
