Robert Pattinson says he's too old to go back to Twilight

02.17.2012

Robert Pattison is 25 years old, and he doesn't think he can play a teenage vampire anymore. 

Or that's what he said at the premiere of BEL AMI, when asked if he would return to the series should Stephenie Meyer ever add another novel to the series.

"I'd be curious what Stephenie would write, but I just think I'd probably be too old," he told reporters after the screening. "I'm already too old. But yeah, it'd be kind of interesting."

Stephenie Meyer has actually written a rough draft of the fifth "Twilight" book, which has been made available on her website after it leaked to the internet. Called "Midnight Sun", it was the same story of "Twilight" told from Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson's character) point of view.

The four movies so far have amassed $2.5 BILLION (!!!) so far, and of course the fifth film is on the way, but you know how those studio execs are when they smell money. It would be interesting to see if the fanbase would tolerate another Edward Cullen for the series, should it ever continue.

Let him go

I think he's right to move away from this series because he's had a lot of success outside of it. I look at a movie like Water for Elephants and can't say it shouldn't be deserving of recognition as one of the best movies of the year. He's had other roles (Remember Me), and I think he knows that he can't grow within the Twilight series... He's arguably the best part of the Twilight films (main characters at least), however I cannot vouch for a single one of them as good flicks whatsoever.

So the fifth book is a re-hash of the first book, with the perspectives reversed and a few scenes added? If this thing sells like hot cakes then I won't judge Stephanie Meyer's hackery anymore, I'll judge the imbecility of her fan base.

What the hell else has this guy done? Besides dying in Harry Potter, and a chick flick here or there this guy has no career. He should be grateful he got to ride this shitstorm of terrible movies. I tend to think if a new book comes out and they dramatize it, he'll be there with his hat in hand.

Well, the dude is in the next David Cronenberg flick. That's enough for me to believe he can easily make it outside Twilight.

He'll get a few roles here and there and than disappear. Not b/c he's a bad actor (but he's not great either), but b/c it's hard for anyone to see him in a role outside the franchise that made him famous. Look at what happened to Hayden Christensen.

No disrespect to Rob, but...

I'll always remember him as the vampire dude from Twilight. No matter how serious of an actor he becomes. Kind of like Jake Gyllenhaal from Bubble Boy. Except I actually enjoyed that movie. Edit: And I get a thumbs down for my opinion. Meh. =/

Water For Elephants was a great flick. Pattenson did a pretty good job in it..... IMO of course.

Smart man

Distancing himself from Twilight would be the smartest thing he could do. He's made his millions, now he can choose the projects he wants. And yeah, he's a decent actor: he was surprisingly watchable in Little Ashes.

"I'm gettin' too old for this shit." But, no, really, I think that the best he could do is try to be an actual actor and not just stick to Twilight even if it is the most marketable for him. Zac Efron proved he was a competent actor when he was done with High School Musical and while I didn't see it, I heard Pattison was pretty good in Water for Elephants. Only time will tell, I assume.

Well, Twilight is sh-t. But if he can't do it by the fact of looking older, then considering, it ain't his age that is the problem, it is the smoking.

Just give him a couple years, he'll be ready to blow someone for another chance at twlight, just look at all those dudes who came back for the American Pie sequel for table scraps (besides William Scott of course). Dude seems like a decent fella n actor but theres no doubt the shadow of the franchise will crush him.
