Robert Pattinson: Kristen Stewart Is The Reason I Did 'Twilight'

Robert Pattinson Twilight

And the PDA continues…back from their romantic week-long trip to the Cannes Film Festival, Robert Pattinson reveals the real reason behind signing on to play Edward Cullen in the ‘Twilight’ films!

Under the radar no more! In a candid interview with a reporter, Robert Pattinson proves his admiration for his leading lady Kristen Stewart by reminding everyone that Kristen, 22, was “one of the top three young actresses” before Twilight became a global sensation!

“The reason I did Twilight in the first place was because I saw her in Into The Wild,” the 26-year-old actor says, smiling.

Admiringly, Rob, reminds us that Kristen did a ton of Indie films, and that she was the “go-to girl” before their Twilight hit. This is just more proof of Rob’s love and pride for his well deserving girlfriend K-Stew.

Wouldn’t we all LOVE a boyfriend like that? Tell us Hollywoodlifers, was it love at first sight for these two?

It’s clear they have made a decision about their efforts to hide their relationship from people. I’m glad for them — it must be so exhausting and what a relief to be able to talk about what and who you care about. I recently read someone who said Angelina’s career has been overshadowed by the attention given Brangelina, and I’m sure Rob and Kristen are cognizant of this possibility and will not let it happen, unless they come to a point where they want to be more focused on their private life, which is likely (hopefully) years away.

It’s not anyone else’s fault that Rob has given other reasons. You want to blame someone….blame him. He said it.

Not as much as you. He’s the sweetest guy, maybe that’s why you are so jealous of him. Leave him alone…. JEEZ so pathetic

In a very recent interview, he also said the reason he did Twilight was because he was broke and was about to give up acting and he got the script for Twilight. And in another interview he said he took Twilight cause he thought it was going to be a great little vampire indie flick….

Yeah, but this was his last audition before quit acting, he was ready to back to England but he found out about this part and Kristen Stewart, his love crush was already in the movie to be the leading lady. This was his motivation

Ummm, Yes! If you go back and read original interviews during the promotion of Twilight, he said many times to many sources that the reason he did Twilight was because he wanted to work with Kristen because he’d seen her in ITTW and had a crush on her.
