Robert Pattinson was 'starstruck' meeting Kristen Stewart on Twilight
Robert Pattinson admits he was "starstruck" meeting fellow actress and current girlfriend Kristen Stewart on the set of the Twilight movies, despite having only seen her in a couple of movies. Ahead of the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2, Pattinson compared meeting his co-stars to the first impressions he got of meeting Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson on the Harry Potter films, reports E! Online.
"It reminded me a little bit-even with Taylor, who was 15 when I met him-of when I did Harry Potter, looking at Dan [Radcliffe], Rupert [Grint] and Emma [Watson] and being like, 'Those guys are actors!' I was starstruck by them," said Pattinson, adding, "And I was starstruck by those guys when I met them even though I'd only seen Kristen in a few things," R.Patz continued. "It's funny to see people get humanized." Nice words from Pattinson, but how did Taylor Lautner feel about their first meeting? Well, he couldn't remember it. "I remember meeting Kristen, for sure," he said, adding, "It's so weird, I don't even remember meeting Rob." Oh.
Though he's never hidden his desire to move onto more serious projects, Pattinson spoke of his pride at being part of the Twilight films, adding, "I've seen a lot of other people have minor amounts of fame and just lose their mind completely-like after a casting announcement. It's amazing to see that people manage to maintain." We reckon he was close to losing his mind earlier this year, when, you know, Stewart cheated on him with her director. But anyway.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the final movie in the franchise, hits theaters worldwide on November 16, 2012.
