Ouch! It sounds like Rob is ready to move on from Edward Cullen — and he’s not afraid to admit it.
What’s with the stars of the Twilight saga lately? First Kristen Stewart says she wants The Hunger Games to win Best Kiss at the MTV Movie Awards, and now Robert Pattinson is totally dissing Edward Cullen! “I used to think it was a good thing to have a safety net,” Rob tells USA Today of his blockbuster role, which delivered five huge movies. “[But] to know you’re always safe is not real. It’s got to matter.”
Yes, Rob says his next crop of movies — “I have five things going,” he says, “actually six” — carry a lot more weight than anything you’ll see in the Twilight saga.
And the first one on his agenda is Mission: Blacklist — but don’t ask him to explain the movie to you!
“It’s really complicated to explain,” Rob says. “I seem to like choosing movies lately that are difficult to promote.”
Twi-hards, does it bug you that Rob says his new movies “matter” more than the Twilight saga?
