Excerpt from the interview:
...How does it feel to be a heart-throb?
Scary, because you women are notoriously flippant in your affection for celebs! [Laughs] The other thing is that Twilight fans are very loyal to the book and to [author] Stephenie Meyer. And I got a 100 per cent negative reaction when I got cast. I kind of expected it though.
Really? Because of your looks?
The Edward in the book is like an enigma of everything that's perfect about a man. It's like "He walked in to a room and it hurts to see how beautiful he is." It's just kind of embarrassing. I just couldn't figure out a way to act perfect. I felt like an idiot going to the audition - even having the gall to go in means you're a bit of an arrogant prick. Who could possibly play it apart from Zach Efron? [Laughs]
How are the fans different to when you played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter?
I mean, Harry Potter, people liked the characters, but they don't want to sleep with them. And I guess it kind of adds a different intensity to it, which I still haven't got my head around.
Haha, well, I guess we've heard most of it before, though the part about Zach Efron really made me laugh. In the interview, Rob also admits to being scared of flying, cabs, and driving in his death trap-car. To read the rest of it, click to enlarge the scans above.
