Rob’s interview on French channel M6


Xavier : Wow. Before talking about the movie, what do you think of all this ? Is it always like this?
Rob: Not particularly, only at these events. I have the most ridiculous facial expressions when I go out. I’ve seen this clip a few times; I look like I have a problem.
Xavier: Is it like this in every country of the world when you’re promoting?
Rob: Kind of, yeah. This is the fourth movie now and nothing has changed. Everybody is still screaming? 
Xavier: A lot of your whereabouts are comment on, on twitter? Your life looks like an internet reality tv show. Are you okay with this, or not?
Rob: it’s an unintentional reaction but yeah. I’ve become better at hiding over the last few years. At the beginning I was overwhelmed by everything. I think I was trying to hard to deal with all this.
I’m starting of fit in, I don’t live in a town, it’s much simpler.
Xavier: You’re living like a vampire, in hiding?
Rob: Not exactly, I mean I live in California so there’s not too many shadow there.
Xavier: Let’s talk about the movie. You’ve been playing the role of Edward Cullen for three years now.
Edward is a nice vampire; he doesn’t kill humans and falls in love with Bella, a young normal girl, played by Kristen Stewart. For the past three movies, let’s juts say that those two have been chasing after other, right? And now, they’re finally getting married, sleep together and make a baby. We can say that Edward is pretty slow at doing things but when he does it, he goes all out!
Rob: yeah, he’s very slow moving. It’s funny, there’s like, the first series which is all about a kind of fear of having sex, scared of something happening. But when it finally happens, they create a demon baby. It’s kind of hilarious, especially since it doesn’t stop teenagers from waiting to have sex.
Xavier: The wedding scene, did it make you want to get married? 
Rob: I don’t know, I guess so. I’ve always been … I’ve always like weddings. I haven’t been to many weddings My older friends are starting to get married. It’s scary in some ways but I mean you can still get a divorce.
Xavier: But if you have kids, you can’t get divorced. I mean, you can’t divorce your kids.
Rob: No you can’t, but you can have a lot of them so you can at least get a good one.
Xavier: Do you want kids then?
Rob: Definitely, I wanna have kids. 
Xavier: In the movie, there’s this incredible scene where you perform a c-section with your teeth, don’t you?
Rob: Oooooh nothing came through my ear piece.
Xavier: You’re doing it with your teeth.
Rob: Oh yeah, definitely. 
Xavier: In French we call that a ‘cesarienne’.
Rob: Yeah, I do it with my mouth. I mean that was one of the most fun things I’ve ever had to do in those movies.

Rob’s interview on TF1 (Paris)

Some highlights for those that can’t understand with the French dubbing (via RPlife):

  • He was in London last week and says he couldn’t live there because there are too many people and no one uses cars.
  • He loves going to France.
  • He says his fans are getting younger; they might start bringing them out of the cradle soon.
  • He spoke French “cochon dinde” = guinea pig, “bibliothèque” = library, and “quelle est la date de ton anniversaire?” when’s your birthday
  • He’s aware of the rumors about him making an album but isn’t sold on making one because people don’t like actors turned musicians. But he’ll think about it.
  • It was refreshing working with David Cronenberg.
