  • Robert Pattinson: (Talking about how he got into the dramatic arts) I haven't really decided to be an actor yet! I started doing plays when I was about 15 or 16.

  • Robert: (On his favourite scene from New Moon) The Volterra scene, where I have to step into the light. There were many extras and many fans there. Some fans travelled across the world to be there. I felt a huge sense of responsibility, being in front of so many that are so obsessed with this story. It was nerve wrecking, but I never felt closer to the character before this.

  • Robert: (On strange stories written about him) Recently a magazine had on the cover that I was pregnant. I was just like, "Wow!" It was without a hint of irony.

  • Robert: (whether he thought he was a sexy man-beast) I wouldn't be able to say. I don't think I'm much of one.

  • Robert: (talking about his hair) I have so much residue crap in my hair from years and years of not washing it and not having any sense of personal hygiene whatsoever... even today, I go into these things where I'm supposed to be this sexy guy or whatever, and I'm literally asking, "if I get plumes of dandruff on me, can you just brush it off?"

  • Robert: (On the possibility of playing a superhero) My little cousin tells me I look like Magneto so I guess that's who I should probably play.

  • Robert: (Talking about his accent) I keep forgetting I'm speaking in an American accent sometimes. The dangerous thing is that you end up forgetting what your real accent is after a while! It's really strange; I've never done a job in an American accent before.
