Actor 's interview with German magazine, Interview, is the gift that keeps on giving. Along with dissing the "fat blogger" (Perez Hilton, count on it) who coined the nickname "RPattz", he also took a shot at obsessive, middle-aged Twilight fans (seriously, it's creepy).
But now, even though he is desperately trying to distance himself from both Twilight and being known for dating , he admits that their previous real-life relationship can't be separated from Edward Cullen and Bella Swan, no matter how much he would like it to be so. Would their relationship have been covered with so much media frenzy and obsessed over by so many hysterical fans had they not appeared in Twilight together? Probably not, he says:
It’s impossible to give a smart answer to that. One thing can’t be separated from the other.
Twilight has its own fan culture that existed from day one. And in an intense way that didn't exist before...
Sometimes, I really wonder if Rob would choose to do Twilight all over again if he could go back in time. And sometimes, I suspect his answer would be no.
