It’s no secret that Robert Pattinson hates wearing makeup and doesn’t enjoy playing pranks on costar Taylor Lautner. So it might come as a bit of a shock to learn that he doesn’t actually hate the Twilight characters. In fact, he thinks they’re pretty cool. When MTV News caught up with the actor at the Elle Style Awards, where he picked up the award for Best Performance in a Comedy, he opened up about the appeal of his Twilight character and his favorite scenes from the film.
The Appeal Of The Twilight Characters
For some, it might be hard to understand why anyone would want to play a character as dark and brooding as Edward Cullen. But if you’re a fan of the Twilight series, the appeal is obvious. Twilight is full of intriguing characters, each with their own quirks and charms. And while Taylor Lautner’s Jacob Black wouldn’t make for the best boyfriend material (can we imagine anyone’s proposal going well?), it’s hard not to fall in love with a broody wolf like him. As for me, it’s always been Melancholy McMonkey, the quirky, horse-loving witch from Roswell. She’s the one I most identify with, and it was fun to get a chance to show that side of myself in the movie. Plus, they haven’t aged a bit! When I was 17, I remember going to see Roswell at the cinema, and I was in complete awe of these characters. It was clear: They were meant to be stars!
Edward’s Quiet Humor
Another thing that makes the characters so appealing is their humor. Fans of the Twilight series will know that these are not your typical teen movies. There’s plenty of adult humor present, both in front of and behind the scenes of Twilight. The actors even joke around with each other during takes, which makes the whole crew seem much more relaxed and playful. This is probably because they’re spending so much time together in a remote location, far away from distractions like society and phones. So, in a way, this is kind of like a long-distance relationship with a whole lot of flirting and fooling around. It adds an extra dimension to the story, making it more interesting and enjoyable to watch.
Taylor’s Protective Wardrobe
Most male actors, at some point in their career, play a character who protects a woman. It’s quite the stereotype, but it’s often the case. The men in question are usually rich and powerful, and the women are often weaker and more vulnerable. This is, in part, because men are often more likely to get killed or injured in dangerous situations. It’s a common narrative in popular culture, and it has serious consequences. The reason why this narrative exists is because, historically, men were the protectors and hunters, and women were the nurturers and gatherers. So, when you see an actor playing the role of a knight in shining armor, it might not be a coincidence that he’s usually surrounded by women, or that he almost always appears with a guitar in his hands.
A Place To Create Drama
Drama is a major component of any good horror movie, and there’s plenty of it in Twilight. From the moment that Bella buys a wolf suit in the movie’s opening sequence, we know that there will be conflict. Edward is a controlling, possessive man, and he has a very specific idea of how a woman should look and act. For all intents and purposes, he is the villain of the story. The filmmakers had to work hard to convince viewers that he wasn’t really bad just because he liked to wear masks and sleep with dead people. Throughout the movie, we see flashes of his humanity, as he tries to protect Bella from Melancholy (who is, in reality, just lonely) and keep her safe from the outside world. There’s a lot of fear and mistrust between the Cullens and the Blacks, and it’s really well-written drama. In general, it’s hard to find a good vampire movie that doesn’t have some degree of conflict, particularly at the end when the characters have to choose sides and make declarations of allegiance. So, if you’re looking for a movie where everyone gets along perfectly, you might want to look elsewhere.
Favorite Scenes From Twilight
Aside from drama, Twilight is also full of memorable scenes and scenes that are just plain fun to watch. For me, the most iconic image from the whole series is the very first one. When we see Bella in her Edward-Bella days, she’s just a normal, if a bit neurotic, teenage girl. She doesn’t wear makeup, and she doesn’t have any special outfits. She just wears the same clothes that she always wears: A plain T-shirt and jeans. But when Edward asks Bella to marry him, she gleefully accepts his proposal, and in that instant, she becomes the unwilling mistress of a centuries-old vampire. It’s at this point that we see how the makeup and the costumes come into play, as Bella transforms into a gorgeous, vampy woman. Even though the scene is fiction, it’s an iconic image of a fictional character becoming much more than that, and it still exists in many people’s minds when they think of the Twilight series.
Who Or What Is The Twilight?
When you enter the magical world of Twilight, you are immediately transported to the fictitious town of Forks, Washington. It’s a picturesque location, with beautiful mountains, bright sunshine, and winding streets. According to the Internet Movie Database, the town was first mentioned in the novel Twilight, written by Stephenie Meyer. The name Forks is a reference to the Forks, Washington locations of the novels Where the Wild Things Are and Pale Fire, by the same author. If you are unfamiliar, the best way to understand what’s going on in Twilight is to read the books. They’re set in a time when vampires were truly a part of our world, and they are dark, rich affairs, which means some of the language might be a little difficult to understand. Still, if you want to know more about the Twilight universe, feel free to visit the IMDb or simply perform a Google search on the name. There are plenty of reliable sources out there who can help you learn more about the fandom.
Robert Pattinson’s Fashion Choices
Besides being in a band that everyone loved, Edward Cullen was also a fashion victim. He wore the same black shirt and jeans for the entire duration of the Twilight movie. We also learn in the book that his favorite designer is Dior, and that he owns at least six pairs of jeans, all of which are black. While it’s great that he didn’t get over his fashion trauma, it’s also a shame that he didn’t try harder to find a style that suits his character. It would have been interesting to see him experiment with different looks throughout the movie. Aside from missing out on fashion, Edward also failed to recognize beauty products when they were offered to him. In the book, we learn that he didn’t believe in the existence of mascara and eyeliner, which made him miss out on a trick that would have enhanced his allure. There’s also the matter of his aversion to certain shades of red. It’s a small detail, but I think it adds to the character’s charm. If you watch the movie closely, you’ll notice that whenever he’s wearing red, it’s mostly wine or burgundy, and it makes him look a little pale. If you want to be like Edward Cullen, then you need to avoid red, as it won’t enhance your beauty—or your bling factor, as he calls it. Besides missing out on fashion and beauty products, we also learn that Edward also doesn’t like to eat carrots or broccoli, which I think, personally, makes him a bit of a jerk. It’s not that he’s a vegetarian or anything, he just doesn’t like the stuff that grows beneath the ground.
