Interview of Rob, Kristen During 'New Moon' Promo 2009 - ПАРИЖ с текстом
Kristen talks about how Twilight can touch/affect anyone, because anyone has been a teenager at some point and can relate, in some way, to the movie. She says that the emotions in the movie are universal and that the vampires and werewolves just add to the attractiveness of the saga.
Funny thing : At the end of the vid, the interviewer walks out of the hotel and talks to some colleague. He says that he was with Rob and that the interview was pretty cool. His friend asks him if he finally gets why all these girls (in the back) are so crazy about him. The interviewer pauses for few seconds, and his friends bursts out in laughs. He says to him "What do you want me to say?? That I'd like to marry the guy??? I mean, yeah; I like him. He's a cool dude."
Interviewer : "What I saw outside (the hotel) is crazy! I've seen that for Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt...May be Leonardo Dicaprio. But it's really rare. What I want to know is how do you deal with all that. You are so young (23)..How do you keep calm and cool?"
Rob: " It's not easy. I always try to separate my personal and private lives. I remind myself all the time that the fans, the press..are all here for the character, not for me. It's a kinda "ego saving reflex". Actually, it's very nice, but when you're facing all these fans, you just don't know what to do to satisfy them."
Interviewer: "Yeah, but don't actors do this job for that? To be loved and admired?"
Rob: "I guess yes. In some way. But with Twilight, something amazing happened. I've become some kind of celebrity, even though when I started out, I didn't think I was that interesting as a person. And so I just wanted to play deep characters that would enrich me, psychologically."
Then they talk about the similarities between being a vampire and being an actor. The way they both depend on others, and need others to go on.
He asks Rob what he likes about vampires, and Rob says "The 'superhero' aspect. They're like semi-god, but, in the same time, they depend so much on very regular people. On what's deeply basic in ppl; their blood."
Interviewer: "It's really funny to see you talk about vampires, because I just dicovered this other movie (How to be) where you play a completely different character. I was wondering which part of you, as a person, is in this movie, or in the Twilight movie?"
Rob:" Not much. Actually I've never played a role where I can really be myself. As an actor, you think, with every role, that you'll be able to give the character sthg from yourself, your experience. But the more you try to do that, the more you realize, with every single scene, that it's coming out very differently from how you expected it, or how you intended it."
Interviewer : "It's really good to see you smile in the beginning of the movie (New Moon). You seem happy, then you disappear for most of the movie. Wasn't it frustrating for you to be absent ?"
Rob: "No. Actually, it was very nice in many ways. Twilight (1st movie) has had so much success, so we had a lot of pressure, and it would have been impossible to make the exact same movie (focused on Edward/Bella). And, also, I didn't want to be the center of this movie, didn't want to have too many responsibilities in it. Taylor got the big part of it. Which is good. Plus, I get to experiment a new angle; I'm more like a ghost, a shadow, which is stronger. Like a myth or something."
Interviewer: "How did you play that? Did you talk to the author? Or get instructions from your director?"
Rob: "I think what influenced me the most, was my first meeting with Kristen. I imagined someone completely different for the role of Bella. But Kristen/Bella was so strong. So, for this relationship to work out, I thought (back in the casting) that I had to be as strong, but also a bit fragile and somehow broken. Which is very interesting to play. And I have to thank Kristen for that."
Interviewer: "How would you describe Kristen, in three words?"
Rob: "She's so strong. (He pauses and laughs) I'm trying to be careful what I say. She's mature, and very challenging."
