“I wanted to meet girls,” the 25-year-old Twilight actor said. “People said, ‘Go join sports!’ But I thought all the girls were in the drama class.”
It worked Rob! Plus, you’re dating the woman who is the fairest of them all.

Noisy New Yorkers: “People in New York are a lot more vocal than in other places. It’s funny, they got some dirty mouths, which is kind of great, it makes it exciting. After you’ve done it a few times, you want anything, you want people to attack you.” (Not really or physically, I’m sure.)
The screaming: “It definitely feels like job security, in a funny sort of way, if you’ve been avoiding it for a while and you suddenly go out and people are still screaming. Whew.”
Disguises: “I started off just trying to make strange expressions,” to avoid being recognized but it didn’t really work. In airports, instead of being accompanied by security or taking advantage of special entrances, he may wait in the economy line. It’s the last place anyone would think to look for him, and it works.
Breaking the rules: As “Twilight” devotees know, Edward Cullen sparkles, “like My Little Pony” he jokes, in the sunlight. “But for whatever reason in Brazil, because Brazil is obviously very sunny, I could not explain to you why I’m not sparkling. A glaring continuity error.”
What’s next: “I did this movie with David Cronenberg, which I just finished, playing a sort of billionaire currency trader. It’s a Don DeLillo novel. I don’t know, I mean, just staying employed in one form or another is enough for me.”
