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?
