Robert Pattinson opened up to E! News about being a part of “Harry Potter,” and the having a break in between before getting super famous with “Twilight.” Robert believes that is what helped him retain some normalcy in his life:
I did Harry Potter when I was like 17, and nothing really happened after that. I mean, I made loads of money compared to anyone my age—it was incredible. But I mean, then I just did little TV things afterwards. But I got to live from 18 to 21, you get your own apartment and basically I didn’t star in Twilight until 21. It’s different because you’re still young, but you’ve had a life beforehand. Where as if you are 10, it’s a totally different thing.
Robert’s ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart started her acting career at the age of 8-years-old.
When you see these kids, there is only one way: you either get in therapy now or become a serial killer, or kill yourself. I mean, you can see it really early on—it’s terrifying.
Robert also opened up about meeting Justin Bieber, and how he thinks the pop star will turn out:
I’ve met him before, though, on his party bus. I’ve met him a couple of times. He’s all right.
Robert is currently at the Cannes Film Festival where he had a “Twilight” reunion with actor Kellan Lutz!
