Chicago Sun Time interviewed Robert Pattinson recently while promoting his new film Water For Elephants. Rob talked about Breaking Dawn and ending his role as Edward Cullen.
“It does feel like a breakup. I do love the guy — and I’m going to miss him,” Pattinson, 24, says during an interview with the Sun-Times on a cool Sunday afternoon from his hotel suite in Santa Monica, Calif. “I prefer to think of ending this franchise like leaving school. It’s the last day of high school.”
He mulls over the plusses of leaving behind his romantic alter ego.
“I’ll be very glad not to put those contacts in anymore or have to put on the sparkling makeup,” he says with a giggle.
The thing about Pattinson is, he likes to giggle. A lot. Then his voice softens.
“It’s been amazing to play the same character through so many adventures. And it’s so strange because my life has changed so much over these years, but ‘Twilight’ and Edward Cullen will always be a part of me. It’s been my whole life. My whole 20s,” he says. “And I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

He knows that there is no way he’s leaving this room without spilling some secrets about “Breaking Dawn,” a two-part finale debuting in November.
“I haven’t really seen any of the footage, so I’m not sure how any of it turned out. All I can tell you is, it felt right. It was from the heart.
“I’m as curious as any ‘Twilight’ fan,” he insists.
Of course, there are all those persistent relationship rumors, including that he’s about to marry his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart, settle down and have some bambinos — at least according to an Italian magazine.
“I don’t understand how they printed that. It’s a completely made-up interview,” he says. “I’d love to have a family — sometime in the future.”
They may not be having babies in real life, but their characters Edward and Bella get married and have a child in “Breaking Dawn.”
Ask Pattinson about one of the most pivotal scenes — the birth of Bella and Edward’s child and turning Bella into a vampire — and he pauses. He isn’t sure how much to let out of the bag. Then he giggles and lets it rip.
“It was insane intense,” he says. Edward can either lose her or give her a bite and thus immortality. “It was a pretty traumatic scene for me to do as an actor and, frankly, horrible for me emotionally.
“Edward has tried for so long not to turn Bella into a vampire and now … well, it’s very sad. He feels like he has let her down.”
Pattinson stops and laughs.
“Now stop asking or I’ll be in trouble.”
