RPatz Interview with Jetset (France) ~ Translated

Some old, some new stuff in this interview:

R.M. : Since you’re English, you must have followed the FIFA world cup . Why do you think this event is so important in the world?
R.P. : The english team is always a good one , we always have the best players and no one is supposed to play better than us , but everytime , it’s not enough to win
I don’t know why football is so important and why it gathers so many people. Maybe because it’s easy to understand this sport . The more a sport attracts people ; the more popular it’ll be , that’s why I never understood why football isn’t so popular in the USA . It’s incredible to see such a huge and rich country unable to have a good football team . I must say they improve and thay have a great football team now.

R.M. : You’re only 24 and you’re on the spotlights , is it difficult not to make mistakes?
R.P. : Yes , it’s always frustrating and people always expect me to do some mistakes to pounce on me. But I like being imperfect. We can’t always look perfect and sell such an image. It’s impossible. Anyway, I never tried to do so , it’d be dangerous . And I’ve always made a million mistakes (laughs…)

R.M. : and if you did a film which happens to be a failure ?
R.P. : as long as I’m making a film for good reasons , and not money ,it’ll be OK . If I decide to do a film just for money , there’ll be problems. Nothing can be good if you do it for money or for fame . If we choose to do a film because we think it’s a good story, then even if it’s a failure, I don’t mind. I’ve never been attracted by money or fame . My desires are quite limited, so I guess it’ll be OK!

R.M. : Your upcoming film is Bel Ami , an adaption of Maupassant’s novel . You also played Salvador Dali and then you did Twilight.These aren’t classical choices
R.P. : I never thought about what I wanted to do . And when you’re not famous , we can do independent films , more artistic films . And you have to be lucky to do it ! Then when I did Twilight, I didn’t expect that success . First because it was directed by Catherine Hardwicke who comes from the independent cinema industry. And then because Kristen Stewart was cast . She had only done independent films . I thought it’d be a simple love story with vampires and that maybe it’d become a strange remembered film . Obviously , it became this huge phenomenon and no one had predicted it. Once you’re in it , you have to surf on the success wave ! I won’t complain to be in a successful film !

R.M. : You told us you don’t do films for money , but due to the success of Twilight, did you take part to the negotiations?
R.P. : In a way , I did . But it’s my manager and my agent who deal with it . My only wish is to go on working . The other aspects bother me. And I don’t think about money when I do films one after the other . It’s what I enjoy . Before Twilight, I did a tiny film “Little Ashes”. There was no budget and above all no money for me but it allowed me to live 4 months in Barcelona, just for this film. It was awesome ! Except that , my life is the same , I always do the same things . So there aren’t so many difference between the past and the present

R.M. : You play the guitar and you had a group . Is music important for you ?
R.P. : It’s very important and I think being an actor helped me for my music. In the past, I wasn’t interested in music . My sister who is a singer introduced me to this world . This indutry is much more difficult thant the film industry. You’re not really respected when you’re an actor , but when you shoot a film , in the end you’re paid . In the music industry , you’re constantly asked to improve yourself . You work again on your music and once it’s done, you’re not paid !The only reason I started doing music and trying to record albums, it’s because I’m a bit famous , and it’d perhaps help me playing with famous artists .Once you’re famous as an actor, doors are open for music . So I hope I could record some songs , but just for me .If it’s for money , it’s useless . And I consider that if you earn money no one can listen to you until it’s over , nobody can judge you either

R.M. : What can you tell us about Breaking Dawn.
R.P. :Bill Condon is going to direct it , but I haven’t read the script yet . It’ll be 2 different films . I confess I’m a bit afraid that this franchise is going to end . It’s a safety net which enables us to make some mistakes in these films beause we know there’ll always be another one .But once it’s over , it’s over ! I’m glad we shoot the films one after the other . I used to try to shoot a film in between Twilight films . For Eclipse, I had to embody Edward again in one week , and it was hard . One week preparation, it wasn’t easy and I was stressed at the beginning. So for the next installements, I could be Edward during the shooting of both films .

R.M. : Speaking about Edward, he’s a 107 years old virgin vampire ?
R.P. : (Laughs ) How old is he ? I think he’s 109 or 110…

R.M. : And he never had sexual relationship before?
R.P. : I think he had an adventure with another vampire, in Alaska, but it’s not mentionned ! (laughs) In the first book , it’s briefly alluded to but I don’t remember it well . I don’t think it’s clearly explained . Fans enjoy thinking he’s still a virgin !

Not sure Est. In Twilight that girl is mentioned and then in BD she comes to the wedding and Bella is jealous of her. *shrugs* I guess it is Ed's little secret ;o)

It was Tanya, here it is in Breaking Dawn:

Behind my human friends were my new cousins-in-law, the Denali vampire clan.
I realized I was holding my breath as the vampire in front—Tanya, I assumed
from the strawberry tint in her blond curls—reached out to embrace Edward.
Next to her, three other vampires with golden eyes stared at me with open
curiosity. One woman had long, pale blond hair, straight as corn silk. The other
woman and the man beside her were both black-haired, with a hint of an olive
tone to their chalky complexions.
And they were all four so beautiful that it made my stomach hurt.
Tanya was still holding Edward.
“Ah, Edward,” she said. “I’ve missed you.”
Edward chuckled and deftly maneuvered out of the hug, placing his hand lightly
on her shoulder and stepping back, as if to get a better look at her. “It’s been too
long, Tanya. You look well.”
“So do you.”
“Let me introduce you to my wife.” It was the first time Edward had said that
word since it was officially true; he seemed like he would explode with
satisfaction saying it now. The Denalis all laughed lightly in response. “Tanya,
this is my Bella.”
Tanya was every bit as lovely as my worst nightmares had predicted. She eyed me
with a look that was much more speculative than it was resigned, and then
reached out to take my hand.
