In a new interview, Robert Pattinson explains why he works so much without taking a break…and why he hopes it continues that way for a long time!
Since booking Twilight four years ago, Robert Pattinson has been working non-stop. The 25-year-old actor never seems to take a break from his craft, continuously filming movie after movie. However, it turns out that’s the way he likes it — keeping busy is how he manages his incredible level of fame.
“I just try to keep working,” he recently told Film3Sixty. “I remember ten years ago Leonardo DiCaprio saying he liked to be able to take a break from everything, but I don’t think he can do that anymore. I think you both need to capitalize and steer your career at the same time, especially with a thing like Twilight, where it is literally such a huge thing that has blown up. It’s like a whole system, a whole universe.”
We can only imagine Rob’s passing this advice onto his girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, who has also not stopped working since Twilight began in 2008.
“It opens doors and it closes others like anything does,” Rob said, talking about the series that made him a mega-star. “You can say, ‘oh if I was still unknown, then no one would judge me,’ but at the same time, nobody would give a s*** either. It’s a weird little balance.”
Rob is smart to not take his momentum for granted and to keep working while he can.
One thing is for sure — we don’t mind if Rob and K-Stew stay busy! We love seeing them on the big screen. Plus, they seem to manage their career schedules really well, taking off a month or two
