Robert Pattinson is sure the insane fan attention that has surrounded him since his casting as Twilight’s Edward Cullen was first announced will move over to Taylor Lautner once New Moon is released.
In a lengthy interview in Sunday’s The Sydney Morning Telegraph, RPattz revealed, “I’m not the lead in the second film. Taylor is. I appear in Bella’s dreams. So I’m in it but the focus is not on me. I just have significant moments at the beginning and the end. So I’m more of a supporting role in this one which is why I feel so free.”
Lautner is already getting a taste for the explosive fan reaction that will follow New Moon’s November 20 release. At an October 8 Taylor Swift concert, the audience went wild at the sight of Lautner in the crowd.
“I don’t take any of it seriously,” Pattinson said of the sex symbol status. “It’s just a job and while it’s a job I love, girls scream out for Edward, not Robert. I still can’t get a date.”
