Rob comments about the new Bella and how Kristen handled finally being a vampire:
MTV: Hi Rob! So there’s a lot of anticipation from fans to finally see Bella as a vampire. How do you think Kristen handled the transition – did she do a good job?
Rob: Yeah, she was really excited about being a vampire. Everybody else who’d been pretty consistently in the movies, they’d obviously been playing a vampire like every day for ages. And so it’s funny seeing someone suddenly come into it and try and figure out their own version of the physicality and the mentality of it.
But her character has a different thing, because she’s supposed to find it really easy. It’s supposed to be a natural progression for her to become a vampire, it’s supposed to be simple. So I guess it was kind of different.
Rob talks Twilight nostalgia and how his life has changed since:
MTV: Looking back across the whole series, what’s your favorite memory from being on set?
Rob: There’s been a few. I mean, going to Brazil on this one was pretty fun, it was pretty crazy. I crashed a speedboat which was pretty exciting! Yeah tons. Tons from the first movie, it was just so different being the first one. I mean we used to travel to set, the entire cast, in a minibus. I mean it was so entirely the opposite of what the last one ended up being – like being in helicopters and stuff.
MTV: Before you landed the role of Edward in ‘Twilight’ you had decided you were going to quit acting. Is it strange looking back at how far you’ve come and how much your life had changed since then?
Rob: Yeah, it is very odd. I think that a lot of actors go through the same thing, when you’ve literally gotta be just like ‘Ugh, this is pointless.’ That’s the only time you ever seem to get any jobs – you’ve gotta be at rock bottom! [laughs] But yeah, it’s funny. I was like fully, fully intending not to do it anymore, and then this came up.
Rob talks about shooting his next project, The Rover, in Australia:
MTV: So what’s next on the horizon for you?
Rob: My next thing I’m doing in Australia with this guy David Michod who did ‘Animal Kingdom,’ and Guy Pearce. So yeah, that’s going to be fun. It’s a really good script and I think he’s an amazing director, so it’s exciting.
MTV: So we can expect to see you back Down Under soon then?
He also mentions Katy Perry and her documentary “Part of Me”:
“Embarrassingly I didn’t actually go to the premiere, I just went to the party!” Rob said with a laugh.
“I have seen that film though,” he continued, “I really liked it.”
Will she come to the ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2′ premiere in LA?
“Yeah maybe. Yeah! She should come to it!” said Rob.
