So what if Twilight's main man Edward Cullen could have just about any woman he fancies -- he's still the old fashioned type, according to the actor that plays him, Robert Pattinson.

Robert Pattinson Shooting Scenes From “Water For Elephants”:

"Edward is old fashioned," Pattinson told ("Nowadays, everyone just goes around screwing everyone for no reason. I guess Edward doesn't really want to sort of cheapen his relationship with Bella, even though she's pushing him to go all the way. He's got this certain idea of how it should go with the love of his life. He wants to do it right and not just follow his base instincts. I guess I'm a bit old fashioned in that way as well."

Pattinson told Parade that the kissing scenes in Eclipse with his on-screen (and off-screen?) paramour Kristen Stewart were more natural than its predecessors.

"Kissing felt a little bit more natural in Eclipse, even if there was plenty of it," the A-list heartthrob said. "In New Moon and Twilight, it was always like, 'Oh, I'm gonna kill you if I kiss you, or something. It was always kind of odd. But, in this one, they both understand their situation a lot more, which makes it easier. It's the first time Kristen and I have been able to just act like a normal couple."

So were those kissing scenes the result of some ... err ... off-screen practice?

"I guess people like stories, that's my basic conclusion," Pattinson told Parade. "They just want everything in our lives to be like Twilight. The truth is...that I wish I had a few more hours of sleep today so I could think of a better answer. I'm always so exhausted all the time. Lack of sleep is like taking a Valium."

We'll have to just keep guessing -- in the meantime, Pattinson reprises his role of Edward Cullen in Eclipse, which hits screens June 30.
