Got a few new interviews here for you! First, Elle UK interviewed Kristen Stewart (and did a photoshoot with her)!
"On Twilight: 'With Twilight, we never thought it was going to be so huge; we never thought we'd do a second, a third. I'm quite nervous about the third one, actually. It's so such a privilege to be able to play a role for so long. Also, it's such a product now; it didn't start out as a product. I read the first book and thought, "Wow, this is a pager turner." There was something in the script - the energy. It's raw desire, that's what that book is. Which is why it's weird that little kids read it. I'm like, "What are you thinking about when you're reading it?" I thought that it was going to be a really simple, overly dramatic - which was what was attractive about it - rotten love story. When they cast me it wasn't like "Omigod, I got this huge movie"; it was like, "OK, I got this film." You have to rev up to it."
"Were you a fan of the Twilight series? Tell the truth.
I watched the first film on the plane, on the way over to Vancouver. Then I went straight to the bookstore.
Funny. You play Riley, a hungry newborn vampire out on a rampage. Full disclosure: I read the book, and Riley's only on one page.
Yes, I was flipping through the book, thinking: Where's Riley? He's whittled down to one line. But in the film, we venture into the world of Riley and watch him assembling this newborn army. It's more action-packed. And it gives me something more to do, thankfully.
Do you get to inflict much damage on the world?
There was no neck biting. I threw a vampire off of a burning car. I also threw a massive log with one hand. The log was attached to a hydraulic system. It made me look really strong."
The Yap: Have you had any difficulty adjusting to this sudden fame? Youíre not exactly doing an intependent film to start off, youíre jumping right into the mania of this franchise.
TH: Not really. It was kind of a lot to handle at first. Youíre right, itís this big phenomenon thing, and it was hard for me to deal with it. I just had to tell myself, yeah, this is just crazy, but Iím still like the exact same person I was a year ago. Iím still
Tyson, and itís not really changing me personally in any way. Iím staying true to myself and staying grounded. But other than that itís been really great, just meeting a lot of really cool people. All the fans are just so great and passionate about it.
