You can learn a lot about a character — and an actor — talking to a film’s costume designer. Here, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse‘s Tish Monaghan reveals a few secrets from the wardrobe closets:
• Robert Pattinson wanted to wear karate pants for the training sequence. “So we got him some karate pants, and it’s like the crotch hangs down to the knees, and I just thought, Ugh. Who’s gonna go for this? Because everything has to be approved by Summit,” Monaghan says. “We took them in a little bit, and they loved the karate pants. Who knew? I was so surprised.”
Bel Ami’s star Kristin Scott Thomas mentions Robert PAttinson as ‘Robert Pattinson Is The Loveliest Man’.
You filmed Bel Ami with Twilight’s Robert Pattinson earlier this year – did you get swept up on the hysteria?
No, you wouldn’t have known. Robert Pattinson is the loveliest man–he’s just so sweet….

Charlie Bewley has all 5 facts on People.com website where he mentioned that he didn’t get Robert Pattinson appeal.
1. He Doesn’t Get Pattinson’s Appeal
Admitting that he was not a fan of Twilight before joining the cast, Bewley, 29, says that he also didn’t “understand” everyone’s attraction to Robert Pattinson. “I had my acting teacher and all the girls around me just swooning on this English dude in this film,” says Bewley. “I was like, ‘He’s not that good looking. What are you talking about? He is white and he’s got funny hair.’ “
Charlie Bewley talks about Robert Pattinson during his recent interview where he stated that Robert’s music is really important to him.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are the main stars – how did they make you feel welcome on set?
I don’t think it was really their job to make us feel comfortable. At the end of the day we are all actors, it wasn’t like there was some sort of initiation process. They are obviously under a massive amount of pressure and to have this new family of Volturi step on set and become part of this thing, it was probably more nerve-racking for them! I loved talking to Kristen, though – she’s a very deep, intelligent person and Rob reminds me of a lot of people I know from home. He talked to me about his friends back home getting recording contracts. His music is really important to him but with 12-13 hour days there’s not much time for that. I’ve heard him play and he’s good.

….she wants to protect herself from rabid Twilight fans by clearing up another salacious story.
It was claimed she had dated Robert Pattinson just before meeting Brand.
But Katy says that’s another misconception – and it’s just as well.
She said: “No. But even if that rumour was true and anybody heard word of it, I don’t think I would be alive today to tell the tale. Those fans would come and get me.”

During an interview, Robert’s co-star, Michael Sheen talks about how hard working Robert is on the set.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is upon us. You have worked with Robert Pattinson in New Moon. What is he like, and do you see him being able to break free of the role of Edward?
I’m sure he’s not going to have any trouble himself personally, it’s whether the audience will accept him as something else. We’ll see. He certainly has the desire to stretch herself as an actor and try different things. He has a [different] film out at the moment, doesn’t he?
Yes, Remember Me, which is really good.
So I hear. I don’t think he’ll have any trouble. He’ll probably always be Edward Cullen for a whole generation, but I’m sure he won’t have any trouble doing that. And he’s lovely. He’s a very nice English lad who seems to have both feet on the ground. He’s very humble, very pleasant and hard-working. He takes what he does very seriously. I think he’s going to do very well, that young lad.
The Ministry has previously highlighted the struggles of “The Twilight Saga’s” ordinary humans, and perhaps the most popular is Kristen Stewart’s on-screen dad, Billy Burke.
It’s arguable that some of Stewart’s most comedic and relatable moments come from her scene work with Burke, as bone-dry rural police chief Charlie Swan. In our chat a while back with “Twilight” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, the scribe said Burke’s character was her favorite to write for.
Our Q&A with Burke provides more insight.

‘Water For Elephants’ movie will start filming started May 22, 2010 takes place mainly in Fillmore, CA and Piru, CA. A few shots in Downtown Los Angeles, CA. Filming wraps July 9, 2010.
ROBERT PATTINSON usually arrives at our interviews with an easy, sly grin on his face. The smile reminds us that we’re in for another humor-filled talk with the guy.
What was different this time was his haircut—cropped on the side—which made him look younger.
In this chat, Robert talks about his anxiety over the coming end of the “Twilight” series, how he feels about the kissing scenes between Kristen Stewart’s Bella and Taylor Lautner’s Jacob, and a life-changing moment, among others.
Robert has come a long way from the first time we interviewed him on the London set of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” in which he played Cedric Diggory.
Below are excerpts:
What are you looking forward to about “Breaking Dawn” being shot back-to-back as two films and of Bill Condon directing them?
I’m glad that it’s Bill Condon. I love his stuff. I haven’t seen the script yet but I am fearful about the series’ end. It’s such a great security blanket. It’s like a net. You can afford to make mistakes when you have another “Twilight” film to make. After that, I guess you’re on your own.
I’m glad the “Breaking Dawn” films will be done together. Because otherwise, it’s quite hard to fit another film in-between each one. Like what happened in “Eclipse”—having to get your mind back to where it was before. I had about a week of preparation time. It was quite stressful in the beginning. With the two films done together, you can just stay in character the whole time. Read more…
Here’s the excerpt interview of Melissa Rosenberg on Robert Pattinson as A Courageous Actor.
Rob said recently he was very challenged by Slade in playing the role of Edward this time around, and that it felt like a new character. What was the dynamic between Rob and David like?
“You know, David has talked about how Edward has to go from having just gotten Bella back to literally ripping someone’s throat out at the end [of Eclipse]. It’s a hard journey to get to for a character. So I know David worked with Rob in terms of bringing out that dark aspect of him, and we worked together on the script to make sure that was in there.”
Change can be unnerving for an actor, so was Pattinson onboard to bring this new character out? Or did he prefer the Edward in Twilight and New Moon?
“Oh sure. Rob is a courageous actor. He wants something to chew on, as it were! He wanted something meaty to really be able to act.”
