Obviously a lot of people would like the gift of eternal life but Rob says that’s not the only reason why he wishes he could be like his glittery onscreen character!

Robert Pattinson doesn’t have anything but praise for Edward Cullen. Rob played Edward for four years in the Twilight flicks and overtime he began to truly appreciate the unique vamp? Is it because of his dashing good looks and his gorgeous human wife Bella Swan? Nope!

“Just his ability to not really say very much,” Rob tells iHeart Radio. “I kind of admire someone having the strength to say nothing. I’m kind of the opposite in reality. But ya it’s kinda nice playing a character who is more like a symbol who is not really, he is sort of an alien.”

Rob has said in the past that it was difficult playing Edward:

“Especially when you’re playing the same character and especially when it’s so specific that your image never changes. [Edward] never sweats. He never cries. He never gets dirty. His hair never changes … it’s very difficult not to look exactly the same all the time.”

Rob said this because it was one of the countless moronic questions that they keep asking him. I’d prefer Rob any day with his witty sense of humour and his conversation. Also, Edward’s a wimp.
