Why Robert Pattinson Auditioned For Twilight Role

Robert Pattinson has revealed why he auditioned for his role in Twilight — he was desperate to meet Kristen Stewart!

Robert Pattinson

The British actor plays vampire Edward Cullen in the smash hit movie franchise.

But Pattinson, 23, admits he was only interested in the part so he could get up close and personal with Stewart.

“I read the script of Twilight and I barely knew that they were books too so I had no idea what I was letting myself in for,” said Rob. “The only reason I went to the audition was to see Kristen because I had just seen Into the Wild. Of course I had a little crush on her.”

Meanwhile, Pattinson is being so distracted by fans while his films his new movie, Remember Me, in New York; producers have been forced to lock down the set.

“[The crew] were told not to talk to the press at all. And when they talk on their phones about the shoot, they need to make sure no one else is around,” a source said. “They’ve also started listing these rules on the top of call sheets.

“It’s ridiculous. I worked on a film with Jennifer Aniston and it wasn’t nearly this bad. Older people don’t even know who he is.

“It’s all the teenagers that literally scream when they see him who make shooting impossible. They’ve had to hire security, it’s actually the same company Aniston used.”

    I’m sick of hearing this. If its true, he could have met her some other way than auditioning for a very coveted role that he knew nothing about, and now he does not even like all the attention he is getting because of it. Alot of guys would love this “hero” image, not him, he runs, hides and cries. Waa. so sorry he’s being paid so generously.

    He could have met Kristen Stewart privately at the audition and asked her to have a coffee or a “cup of tea” or whatever. They have her looking and acting like trailer trash in “Into the Wild”, and she can’t sing. P..Lease, he could do better than her looks and acting wise.

    She ruined Bella Swan with her deep smokers voice and flat acting effect. Bella is a delicate, innocent lady like girl, big brown innocent eyes, not slanted green eyes and a bitchy attitude. NOw all you Robsten fans come bring it on, I guess.

  • @ELR – I dont think that would be appropriate for a guy to ask a girl to have cofee or something just meeting her in other place and introduce himself like Hi I’m Robert can we have a….. blah blah blah. Besides he knows from the beginning that he has a boyfriend. Like Rob said he just wanted to see her to know her personally, he is very shy and private person that is why he doesn’t want all the attention cause first of all he didn’t expect that twilight would be that popular.
