Robert Interview with Daily Star
NOW that it’s finally over, what was the most touching moment for you in the series and perhaps the hardest one too?
There was a bit in the first one, just when Bella is in the hospital and she says “Don’t ever leave me again” and I say “Where am I going to go?” or something like that. I still think that’s kind of my favourite scene in it. Mainly because it was so different from what happened after it and we made up the lines there and then – that’s how different the shoot was. Like every movie afterwards, the idea of making up lines is kind of unheard of. And so I loved that bit. The hardest scene was probably the birth scene in the first part of this film, mainly because it was hilarious – and it was supposed to be really serious.
Do you think you have a “timeless gentleman” quality?
I don’t know. I guess I’m relatively sensitive. Also, I had two older sisters so I grew up with lots of girls and I guess I kind of have a different mentality because of that. And I never really played any team sports or anything, so I guess all those things add up to that.
What do you think about when you watch yourself in movies?
I don’t really know what I’m doing when I’m doing it. I find a lot of the time it’s like tossing a coin and maybe something comes out good when you are doing it, even in the scene. I don’t understand these actors who can consistently turn up to work and just be in acting mode and just be really good all the time. I can literally walk on to a set and have absolutely no idea. I’ve done all my preparation or whatever and I still have no idea what’s going to happen until I open my mouth. I can also feel that something went terribly when it’s the best scene in the movie or whatever. I have no idea, ever.
How were your action chops in the final battle?
I’m all right at doing it. It’s not like real fighting, you don’t really have to be that fit. You have to be quite “flaily” and I’m quite unco-ordinated and quite gangly, so it’s easy for me to do. If you are throwing a punch, you throw a punch and it’s so huge, whereas most people who actually box a lot or fight properly are so used to keeping it tight and it feels so fake to them. So I find that kind of stuff quite easy and can do it in one or two takes. Everyone else who is really physically fit has to do, like, ten.
Were you scared by the wire work?
Most of the time you were just so tired, you were just going through the motions. Also, it has a lot to do with the shot. Most people think that you can set up an action sequence and then just go “Oh, let’s just do it on wires” and it’s, like, well everyone is going to be able to see that it’s a wire and then it’s boring. It’s funny, all this obsession with effects. People spend $20million on CGI and it’s, like “Cool, it looks like a video game! Well done!”
Do you have a memento from the set?
I have almost every costume from the first one because I was wearing that stuff for about two years afterwards. I literally bought all these clothes and then got the company to pay me back on the first one. You could do anything on the first movie, it was crazy. I was stuck in Vancouver getting my visa by myself. I started just borrowing my costumes and I kept them all for years afterwards. And the funny thing was I had all these things from the first one where I was wearing independent little labels from cool shops in Vancouver and then by the last one, the more and more money that became involved, there would be these contracts with clothes companies. If you look at the last one, every single vampire is wearing G Star or Belstaff. It’s crazy. And they all have the label on the side as well.
