Not that youll hear RPattz complain- ing about the hard slog that comes with a reported $10m pay packet. Sure, he may hide in hotel rooms from rabid fans who would sell their souls to get up close and personal with the lanky Londoner, but as he puts it: If youre working the whole time, going from movie to movie, you dont have time to get rattled. Fans of Stephenie Meyers novels were initially up in arms about the scruffy Robster being cast as undead dreamboat Edward, but with two flicks in the can and two more to go hes won them over. Surely, though, he knew signing on for the franchise would be a life-changer? He shrugs. Everyone says You must have known it was going to be a huge success but in the UK at least it was hard to find someone who had heard of Twilight. It was difficult to find the book in London and even when I signed the deal I still had no idea that there were going to be sequels. That deal has made him a rich man, if a knackered one. But again hes not moaning. I never did much in the first place, he reckons when asked if hes missing having spare time. But if what little spare time he has is spent with co-star Kristen Stewart, hes not say- ing. Kissing her on screen is appar- ently amazing but thats your lot when it comes to a relationship neither party will confirm or deny. Hes bemused anyone would fancy his pre-pubescent girls body, which he covers with layers of clothing -- partly as a defence mechanism against female fans who try to maul him at conventions and in the street. Looking sheepish, this most reluctant of superstars grins and adds: Plus it means they cant see me hyperventilating.
