Pattinson Eyes A Problem For Vampire Sequel

TWILIGHT heartthrob ROBERT PATTINSON isn't looking forward to reprising his blood-sucking role in the hit film's sequel NEW MOON - because he has to wear uncomfortable contact lenses for the part.
The British star played vampire Edward Cullen in the box office adaptation of Stephanie Meyer's cult book, and has signed a multi-million dollar deal to play the character again in the franchise's second outing in 2010.
But he is dreading preparing to shoot the new venture - because wearing his character's topaz coloured contacts is such a painful ordeal.
He tells Britain's OK! magazine, "Wearing coloured contact lenses... It was like I constantly had sand in my eyes. I was wearing them for three months constantly and my eyes never ever accepted them! It took me 20 minutes per eye every single day and I ended up having to literally fold it into my eyeball."
And the star believes the dreaded lenses may inhibit his acting skills - because he couldn't properly portray his character's emotions due to the "two orange blobs" in his eyes.
He adds, "It was frustrating as well because normally your eyes are saying something, but if you've got two orange blobs in your face it's so annoying!
"The director (Catherine Hardwicke) would say, 'Look at her (Kristen Stewart) like you love her,' and I'd be like, 'I'm trying!' I'm going to have to do it again because we're making the sequel next year."

I really feel for Rob with the pain and frustration he goes through in wearing the contacts!!! I can see why he does not look forward to this factor for the sequel(s). I am so So sorry he goes through such pain for us!!! It must be quite frustrating to act through the pain to get the preconceived emotions to come through around the orange blobs in his face...if it is any reprieve for him at all--I believe he does quite nicely in showing the emotion thats needed from his acting in Twilight. I can see that Catherine was on his case about not looking like he hated Bella, but as a person that has seen the movie 20plus times, I liked the emotion that shows in his face--in every scene--every time!!! What about you???~dmd~~what will be will be...from here to eternity~

rob pattinson is so good as edward and i agree no one can ever take his place as hes the original from the start, he seems quite shy in real life and tends not to open up a lot, even though hes becoming a megastar rob isnt forgetting his roots hes adorable and funny and kind and has the most amazing smile its infectious. GO ROB!!!!!!!!!!i love you as a person your nice and your being yourself.

If Robert doesn't reprise his role as Edward Cullen in the rest of the Twilight Saga I will not watch it because he has already made the Character what it is. I think he did a great job with the character & he was very lust worthy.
