After staring in Twilight, Pattinson looks back and thinks of the “amazing luxury” he experienced while filming. He considers himself lucky, it was an “amazing luck, as well, to just have fallen into it with the group of people I worked with on it.”
While siting down with New York Times, Pattinson admits becoming a sellout in a five movie serious has lead him to accept his responsibility for playing the same character.
Robert Pattinson expresses thrill for starring in the film. “I think it was the first time when I worked on something that was quite complex.” Pattinson goes on to say “I especially love that it came out at the height of my popularity. “ The film leads to a turning point for the actor as he realized what he “wanted to do.”
After starring as a cold-hearted vampire, Robert Pattinson now goes on to star in his latest film Good Times, which recently premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
The actor is now working on his next projects, including, The High Life and The Souvenir. Pattinson admitted he is at his best when he is working outside of his comfort zone. When he asked to watch his own work it is almost as if an array of “weird perverted energy comes out when people criticize previous work or think you represent this certain thing; it gives you this energy”, says Pattinson. He says jokingly, he’s “almost scared of anyone saying anything I do is good.”
