SheKnows Twilight's Edward & Bella

As Twilight fever grips the world, SheKnows was front and center with the film's stars that play the iconic characters Edward and Bella in Stephenie Meyer's now-legendary vampire saga.

(page 2 of 3)

Edward's musical element

Pattinson is not only an actor of immense talent. His musical prowess is also on display with the release of Twilight. Shy about sharing that talent, what began as showing his director something personal grew to something much larger.

Pattinson's music is featured heavily in the fight sequence

"I gave Catherine ton of songs to listen to 00 not even for the soundtrack. Catherine cut these scenes and I heard my song scored to it was really weird for me. It isn't even a real song," he says and laughs. "I didn't really want it to be on the soundtrack."

Hardwicke was so impressed with his musical soul, she insisted.

Do not get too excited -- Pattinson says that plans for an extended music career for are nonexistent. "In music, you get pressured by so many people to go in so many different directions. Even now, with the song on the soundtrack I've got these contract people, and everyone's like, 'We want to give you a contract. But, you have to do all of this!"

The passionate pair: Edward and BellaPattinson's biggest challenge for Twilight was not the bruises from carrying Stewart up a mountain or hearing his song on the soundtrack. It was the famous baseball scene. "I'm not really a sporty person. I have no hand-eye coordination. I think it's stupid," he says. "I don't want to hit a ball with a stick anyway. I played cricket in school, but I was rubbish at that as well."

Twilight's blinding light

As for the actor's who play Edward and Bella, are they prepared for the enormous spotlight about to shine?

"I feel like I'm in this little bubble all year where all I've been doing is promoting the movie, and not really being in my real life," Pattinson says.

"When someone comes up to me on the street, it still doesn't seem like reality. It feels like I'm still working. I think I'll feel differently about it once I've gone home. Then someone will say, 'Hey, Edward!'"

For Stewart, her natural quiet ways will shield her, she believes, from the limelight. "I'm not very approachable. I think it will be fun because it's not me. I feel I don't take it personally at all. But, in the end I don't think there's anything you can do about it," she says. "I don't put much stock in it. I don't read those magazines. You're asking for it when you're at La 'Duhhh' every night," she says as we laugh. "Don't go out in Hollywood! I keep a pretty low profile."

Edward saves Bella, launching a love story

Pattinson says there will be one aspect of his life that has been drastically altered. "That's why I can no longer do music gigs. I used to love playing live at open microphone nights at bars and stuff. You can just go nuts and be completely free. It would be cathartic experience," Pattinson says. "I did one here and somebody filmed it and put it on YouTube. It's like it's not the same anymore. I've lost a huge chunk of my life. That's literally how I met everyone I know in LA -- playing music. It's one of my things."

Hi again! I'm so sorry, I didn't finish my comment the last time. Actually, I'm not a fan of Twilight. I even favor Harry Potter more than this. But I just wanted to warn my classmates and friends(who are ultra, mega, ultimatum, and super addicted to Edward(Robert Pattinson)), that in choosing the right man for them; they should not only look at his eternal or physical beauty, but most importantly his internal or emotional and mental or inside beauty-- deep within his heart; if he truly and sincerely loves them.

Okay!! I have to admit i am obbsessed with Twilight! :) it is the best movie EVER!! i would love to meet Robert Pattinson in person!! :] i would pass out or go crazy. I would talk to him like hes a regular every day person. Thats whats different from crazy fans and fans who care on how they feel..Not just if the actor or actress is hot..and im only 14!! I understand how people want to be treated like every day people like you and me. So im just saying if you ever get the chance to meet Robert Pattinson just talk to him not go crazy over him or chase him. do you know how annoted people get by that?? Well anyways...i do say i LOVE ROBERT PATTINSON!! :] im his BIGGEST fan INin the whole world!! lil ole me from Louisiana not you!!!! i dont care what any of you people say!! i am so get over yourselfs!! remember he wants to be treated like a normal person he has friends and family and he has crushes just like evryone so dont act like a freaking maniac!! be nice and show true hospitality!! you never know what poeple do...they might try and get you a role in the next twilight movie... well thats about all i gotta say so bye!! :) -Samantha all the way from Louisiana!! :] i love you Robert!! :] HATERZ!! :] i can feel your hating on me!! :] dont be!! dont hate appriciate! :] bye darling!! :] once again... i LOVE you ROBERT!! more than your one family!! :] peace hoe!! :]

wow unelieveable I just love kristen stewart. she is just an amazing actor. If she didn't smoke pot she probably win the hearts of a lot more people. I feel bad for her because people are always pushing her aside for robert. Even if his is really hot kristen stewart has more years of acting on him. but i do think they would make an amazing couple

Lilibeth Diane Yu December 12, 2008 | 1:53 AM

Twilight is so cool. All of my classmates are addicted to it, except for me. Especially Edward, they are dying to have him. They even wanted to be bitten by a vampire as cute and handsome as him. Weird! hand
