WAY back in 2008 before Kristen and Robert were coached by media folks, they did a little interview with MTV. While MTV counts down to Robert's live Q & A, they are opening their vault to share some memorable Robert Pattinson moments.
And as we count down the days until "MTV First: Robert Pattinson" airs next Friday at 8:56 p.m. ET, we hauled the footage from our vaults.
"Kristen's the best actress of her generation, and that's why I wanted to do this movie. I don't know why she is, but she's better than everyone else," Pattinson told us, breaking out into laughter as he kept the attention on his co-star and away from himself.
"You don't want me to talk about you?" Stewart asked, before doing just that. "I think he's really handsome."
Throughout the interview, they exchanged knowing glances, laughed at themselves and each other, and paused for long periods as they searched for the right word or anecdote. This was the "Twilight" stars, pre-media training, and it's utterly endearing. Can you imagine them now so openly discussing what it's like to smooch on camera?
"His teeth are pretty sharp," Stewart laughed. "It's great. I like it."
"Every time, I just try to kill her," Pattinson added.
"And [Bella] likes it," Stewart said. "She's a total sadomasochist, if you think about it."
