Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s roles as Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the “Twilight” films have marked a generation. But what do they think of the series now?

It can be hard to believe, but it’s been twelve years since “Twilight” first hit theaters. The film, and its subsequent sequels, made stars of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and the two remain close friends to this day. But how do they look back on their time in the franchise? Let’s take a look.

Robert Pattinson’s Reflections on “Twilight”

Robert Pattinson has always been open about his feelings on the franchise. He’s spoken fondly about his time with the cast and crew, and how it helped him become the actor he is today. In an interview with Variety, he spoke about how he was “in a really intense pressure cooker” while making the films, but “it was a great experience”.

Pattinson has also said that the fame he earned from the films was both a blessing and a curse, but he wouldn’t change it for the world. “I couldn’t get a job before that,” he said. “It changed my life and gave me a platform for other films I’ve been able to do.”

Kristen Stewart’s Reflections

Like Pattinson, Kristen Stewart has also been open about her time in the franchise. She has said that she learned a lot about her craft while making the films, and that she’s proud of the work she did. But, as with Pattinson, she also recognizes that the fame that came with starring in such a popular franchise was a double-edged sword.

In an interview with the Guardian, Stewart said that she “hates the way fame has changed” her, but she also acknowledged that she “would have never been allowed to do some of the great films” she did afterwards if it wasn’t for her role in “Twilight.”


Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s time in the “Twilight” franchise has left a lasting impact on them and the world of film. They both look back fondly on their experience, and recognize that the fame it brought them was both a blessing and a curse.

They may not be playing Edward and Bella anymore, but Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s influence will be felt in the world of film for years to come.
