Breaking Dawn Part 2 is just around the corner, so we had to catch up with Robert Pattinson, the man who plays the vampire of the season. We asked him about whether he’s watched any Bollywood movies, when he’s planning on visiting India, and, of course… if Bella would have cheated on Edward! ;) Read on for the answers!

Are you possessive (like Edward) in real life too?

I guess yes, in some ways, about some things. Edward’s pretty self-righteous. I get quite posessive about things too sometimes.

Were there any funny moments on set while shooting for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2?

Yes, it was ridiculous shooting the intimate scenes between Bella and Edward. It was supposed to be an out of the world scene between two vampires. Filming the orgasmic scenes was funny because every time I gave the shot, the cameraperson would laugh or smile at me and we ended up ruining the shot.

Do you think the character of Edward Cullen will over-shadow your future roles?

I’m not sure. I’ve always been of the opinion that if something explodes really quickly, it will fade away that much faster as well. I mean, I don’t know. I hope not.

Who is your favourite co-star of all time?

There are not too many so it is difficult to mention someone so soon. May be ten years later I will have an answer to this! (smiles)

What is the craziest rumour you have heard about yourself?

The craziest rumour I have  ever heard was that I am getting married. Even my own mum called to ask me if it was true.

How do you manage to top the best-dressed lists? What’s the secret to your style?

If I reveal it, it will no longer remain a secret so let’s keep it that way! (laughs)

Is it creepy to have Moms and Daughters obsessed with you?

I don’t know how to react to that. I find it too fictitious to believe. If I start letting such stuff get to my head, I would go crazy. It’s hard to handle the status and recognition I have achieved thanks to the Twilight series as it is.

Would Bella have cheated on Edward?! ;)

Since we have remained true to the book, that’s a question you should put to Stephenie Meyer.

Have you ever watched a Bollywood movie?

Not really. (Smiles)

Do you have any plans to visit India to meet your TwiHards? Any special message for the Indian TwiHards?

I would love to visit India. Let’s see when that happens.

What blogs do you read? Any favorites?

I have not really had the time to go on the net for the longest time. At the least, I may check my mailbox but reading something at length has been far from my radar.

After being the hottest Hogwarts student (Cedric Diggory) and the vampire Edward, what kind of characters are you looking forward to play?

I’d definitely like to go for a Bond role but in more like 20 years. There’d be nothing worse than, like, ‘Let’s get a fresh-faced Bond!’ That would be the worst idea in the world. It would be ridiculous to reinvent it as some young posh kid. (Laughs)

Have you finally hired a publicist? 

This is the weird thing about these interviews (smiles). My biggest problem in life is I’m cheap and I haven’t hired a publicist but after this interview I’m gonna hire one. Great idea, what say! (Laughs)
