Kristen Stewart, are you listening? Robert Pattinson hints he is all up for a 'Twilight' reunion
Although we are not sure if Pattinson was being completely earnest about it when he revealed that he has had a discussion with his agent about the vampire saga.
Robert Pattinson has come a long way since his Edward Cullen days. The 32-year-old English actor, in fact, spent this past weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, promoting his sci-fi film, 'High Life'. While he seems to have completely embraced the indie film wave, starring in one acclaimed project after another, Pattinson would still love to jump in for a 'Twilight' reunion at the drop of a hat.
The revelation came from the horse's mouth itself. Although we are not sure if he was being completely earnest about it. Speaking with Variety during the TIFF over the weekend, Pattinson jokingly revealed how he has had a discussion with his agent about the vampire saga. On a humorous note the 'Good Time' star even went on to dish how he "stopped mentally progressing around the time when I started doing" the Twilight films.
Based on Stephenie Meyer's books of the same name, the first 'Twilight' movie came out in 2008, catapulting leading stars-cum-real-life-lovers Pattinson and Kristen Stewart into instant fame. Eventually, the pair would part ways professionally, after the last Twilight film, 'Breaking Dawn 2' (2012) and in their personal lives. Regardless, fan-following and demand for a Twilight reunion has never stopped.
"Whenever anyone says [Twilight]’s their guilty pleasure, it’s like, you say guilty, what you really mean is just pleasure," Pattinson said, addressing the possibilities during the recent interview. As the question progressed to the actual fruition of the demand for a reunion, though, Pattinson sort of left it in the air.
"Listen, I've literally talked to my agent about it," Pattinson joked. "The amount of time I spent moisturizing... I am ready to play 17 at a moment's notice. I'm ready. I've got the Botox out!" Whether or not, a Twilight reunion actually happens, we certainly hope Stewart is listening.
After all, this is not the first time that Pattinson has been asked about the vampire classic and he left it all to fan imagination, Speaking to Yahoo Movies earlier, the actor had dropped strong hints suggesting that he is always "curious" about the series. "Anything where there’s a mass audience — or seemingly an audience for it — I always like the idea of subverting people’s expectations. So there could be some radical way of doing it, which could be quite fun. It’s always difficult when there’s no source material. But, yeah, I’m always curious," he had said.
He even talked about his life after playing Edward Cullen during the same interview. "And I’m doing more parts that just sort of interest me, while in a lot of ways taking a little bit of a step back just to learn and get better. I guess I’ve never really acknowledged what the fanbase is, or even if I have one."
