'Twilight' Countdown: Robert Pattinson and his vampire pals

20 days left...


As promised, here is the early edition of the paper's Sunday story on "Twilight." Times writer Gina McIntyre spent a sunny afternoon -- read: scorching hot at 100 degrees F -- with the actors who play three Cullen sibs: Robert Pattinson (Edward), Kellan Lutz (Emmett) and Nikki Reed (Rosalie).

She learned about Robert's "embarrassing" on-set injury...

For the movie's action sequences, the actors experimented with stunts and wire work, which Pattinson admits did not play to his strengths. "I got injured on the first shot of the first day," he said. "I wasn't even doing a stunt. I was just trying to pick up Kristen and I almost tore my hamstring because I hadn't been doing enough squats. It was very embarrassing."

...and what the boys did to wind down...

"When we did have those hard days," added Lutz, 23, "we would go back to Rob's room. He had a couple of guitars in there and a lot of great music. It was really fun being able to relax and have the cast come together, having that time just to bond and not really be actors but friends."

And I have more good news! I just confirmed that I will be talking to RPattz himself Election Day  Tuesday. I'd like to devote that Q&A strictly to the best questions I get from you guys, the fans. I won't be able to ask every single one submitted, but rest assured I'll select a most representative bunch. Once again, fire away!

Also, don't forget to check back in tomorrow to find out who won last Saturday's Caption This contest, and to participate in the next.

Question For Rob!!
[ I hope this hasen't been asked]

I was wondering if Rob would go to the theater on Novermber 20th at midnight or another time, and sit in to see the fans reaction to the movie?


How much hair gel do you go through in a year? I'm honestly curious. It looks tedious, what you do with your hair, and I've always wondered. PEACE OUT ROB!!!

LATIMES could you do me a favor?

Popstar.com is having a contest to where fans can write Robert fan mail. He already has 100's of fan letters. They are going to give them to him in Jan 09. But he can log on and read them as of now.

Here is the link:

I think it would be great for when he's bored.

Thank you, it's great appreciated.


Has it been hard to adjust to life in the spotlight?

Do you have many regrets in life?

Favorite childhood memory?

It must've been hard- the pressure of giving the audience an Edward when the book's fans are so expectant of a perfect match. Were you nervous at all? Thanks.

My question for Robert is that we know that Edward and the Cullens love cars and I was wondering what is his favorite car? I've also wondered if he realizes that his fan bases surpasses the teenagers that he usually references. There are alot of 30 somethings that really appreciate his musical and acting talent.

A few questions for Rob

Are you a leader or a follower?

What do you do to escape the pressures of Hollywood?

Are your parents proud?

Do you still have your dog Patty?

What do you do when you get nervous in front of a crowd?

How many times have you been in love?

Have you ever been unfaithful?

Why do you think woman of all ages are so drawn to you?

here are some of the questions i'd like to ask rob pattinson:

a. what mythical figure would he like to morph into (if he'd really get to be one)? would it be a vampire?

b. what country would he like to visit? does philippines count?

c. have you expected to receive this "reception" from the media and the people all around the world ever since you appeared in harry potter years ago?

What's a dream you have yet to achieve?

Do you see yourself married and with children in 10 years?

Please ask as many questions as possible!

With all the insane stardom you've been exposed to lately, do you have any regrets on taking on the role of Edward?

What are you most grateful for?

Are you planner?

What time do you usually go to bed?
