In the first part of an exclusive interview with Marcus Foster, the best friend of Rob Pattinson tells RadarOnline.com what it’s like to be buds with the man of the moment.
Twilight fans know that Marcus and Bobby Long co-authored the song Let Me Sign which Rob performed on the movie soundtrack, and that Marcus is part of the Brit Pack, those scruffy haired hot British guys who make up the inner circle in RPattz's life.
The musician tells RadarOnline.com that he almost cut off his thumb on Wednesday night: "I was just making something in the workshop and my thumb went through this machine called a band saw, and it nearly took my thumb off. I've got a sculpture show I'm working on this week; I'm making some things for that. It's ok, it's fine I didn't need stitches or anything and it will heal but it just means I'm going to have to cancel this show I'm doing on Sunday. I've got to cancel it today. I could do it, but I can't take the risk of a long term injury." We were first concerned about blood everywhere, and Marcus bravely says "Yes, it was quite horrific but it's alright. It's only pain," but we were clearly concerned with Edward trying to kill him for his blood. "Yeah, well, I don't think he is a vampire," the musician sagely tells us. "That is just a movie. Although, maybe he was, that's how he got the part!" As for being best friends with the star, Marcus gets perks that regular folks don't get. "Rob's showed me a bit of the script, I think it's the beginning where she cuts her thumb," he says, referring to Bella's birthday scene where she cuts her finger. So we want to know, was he just reenacting that scene? "Oh yeah, my life is just reenacting Twilight scenes. It's mad!" he jokes.
Before he kicks off his American tour, Marcus tells RadarOnline.com that he's "going to New York as well in a couple of weeks to see my friend Rob which will be nice." He doesn't know if he'll be hanging on set with Rob, but it sounds like they're just going to lay low. "We're just going to chill out I think, I haven't seen him for a while." Marcus didn't know about the craziness that is Rob's life since he's been in New York so when we told him about his buddy he said "Really? Wow, that's so weird. Well, we'll probably just stay inside the apartment and just drink, heavily." As for the fame that's come to the stars, Marcus hasn't seen a change in Rob. "Whenever I see him he's the same, which is great. You know, you see people who fame changes, but it's great, Rob is still the same old guy so it's really nice. "
