Robert Pattinson Can’t Live Without Music

Awwww !

Twilight star Robert Pattinson has become an overnight celebrity since starring as the alluring Edward Cullen in the hit vampire romance.

Adding to Rob’s own mystique is the fact that the actor has not been seen publicly since Dec. 22, when he jetted to London for the Christmas holidays. But his absence has only made his legions of young fans even fonder of him.

Fortunately for them, international media interviews have recently been released providing some interesting insights into the British heartthrob’s introspective personality. In a new interview with Quebec’s Le Samedi magazine, Pattinson, 22, discusses what drew him to the Edward Cullen character, what he finds appealing in the opposite sex and his enduring love of music.

Pattinson, who sounds like a bit of a contrarian, says he was drawn to Edward because of the brooding vampire’s fringe status. “Outsiders are always seductive, or at least fascinating,” he says. “You can see why they’re alone and can’t integrate themselves into groups.”

[Editor’s note: Samedi doesn’t have a website, so we were unable to link to the interview, which is in French; we have translated some key excerpts and pasted a partial scan below.]

Ironically, Twi—which began as a teen cult phenomenon—has mushroomed into full-blown mainstream popularity. So far, the tiny indie flick has grossed an astonishing $284 million worldwide since its Nov. 21 U.S. release.

A sequel, New Moon (2009), will begin shooting in March, and will be filmed back-to-back with Eclipse (2010), the third installment in the best-selling Twilight book series.

As we previously reported, the self-deprecating Pattinson initially was intimidated by the idea of playing Edward, who is described as unspeakably beautiful—an Adonis. “I really liked Edward’s personality but I asked myself if I was indeed the right actor for the role,” Rob recounts. “He is described as being a rare beauty, and that’s not what I see in my mirror every morning.”

Despite his global popularity, Pattinson says he is unattached at the moment. “Je suis toujours célibataire,” he says. [I’m still single]. But what does he find attractive? “Like everyone else, I’m attracted to girls who have a head on their shoulders. The other day I was watching 30 Rock and I was charmed by the quirky Tina Fey,” says Rob. “Rarely have I seen a woman so sexy.”

But Rob has other celebrity crushes as well. “I’m not immune to the sex appeal of the three Jessicas (Simpson, Alba and Biel). And I’m really fascinated by the grace and beauty of Natalie Portman.

Pattinson says he’s attracted to all types of women. “Age matters little to me, and as I said before, I don’t have a specific type,” he says.

But Pattinson’s true love is music. When asked what career path he would’ve chosen had he not become an actor, Rob is unequivocal in his reply. “I would’ve become a pianist,” he says. “I play three instruments, I sing and I write songs.”

Indeed, Pattinson, who wrote two songs on the Twi soundtrack, is intoxicated by music. “I always say that if acting is my first love, music would’ve been my Plan B for becoming famous,” he says. “That may sound a bit pretentious, but it’s true. Music occupies a very important place in my life. I couldn’t live without music.”
