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.
"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."
Twilight's blinding lightAs 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!'"
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."
